Senator Dolllver of lowa Is credited
with knowing a good many thlnga, but,
as a friend said of him once, "he is
rocky on hfetsny." This fact came to
light when he was stumping the state
with Senator Clapp. At a Swedish set

bunch of dahlias to the platform. Mr.
Dolllver turned to Clapp and whla-

the latter Instantly, Dolllver was not

no *|ieclal reference to the flowers,

any more about botany than he did.
It was fortunate that he was thus
careful, for the dahlia is almost a sa

S. ATWOOD NEWELL
One of Wllliamston's Prom
inent Younu Lawyers.
The subject of this sketch was
horn in Franklin County, North
Carolina, September 6, 1878 Hi*
father was a Baptist minister and at
different times filled prominent
pastorates of influential churches
in the larger cities. For some
time he was in charge of a stroug
Missionary Baptist Church in
Charleston, South Carolina. He
was stationed at Wilson aud Wil
mington, North Carolina After
he became more advanced in yeais,
he purchased a farm about five
wiles east of Louisburg in Frank
lin County. H s mother was Sarah
Elizalieth Newell, who was Miss
Coppedge. Mr. Newell therefore
has in his veins good blood, which
shapes conduct and finally fixes
destiny. He was largely raised in
the country and knows a good deal
about rural life. He is the second
son of his parents, who studied
and practical law. Hi.- oldest
brother, after graduating located
in Williamston, where lie built up
a good practice during the five or
six years that he was here. He
has another brother who Is a very
successful physician at Louisburg
Dr. 11. A. Newell is in great de
mand in that section of the country
tor his professional service.
It is but natural that they all
should lie members of the Mission
ary Baptist church, of which their
father was an honored minister.
Mr. Newell's mother, to whom he
is greatly devoted is still living.
After preparing himself in the
common schools, Mr. Newell en
tend Wake Forest College in 1899.
His father being a highly educated
man impressed upon his children
the importance of a eollegiate ed
ucation. Mr. .Newell was for
tunate in availing himself ol col
lege training. He was graduated
from Wake Forest College in 1903.
He studied law there under Prof.
N. Y. Gulley. He came to Wil
liamston in 1903, immediately after
his graduation. For a short time
he was associated here with his
brother in the practice of law. Af
ter his brother's death, he struck
out on his own account. He has
been remurkably successful as n
lawyer. Ilr applies himself to his
tlooks and conducts his pto'ession
on a high plane. He will not do
a mean thing for compensation.
He associates with the best people
of the county and is large in his
conception of his duties to his
neighbor as a piofessional man.
He has purchased the office fortn
ily occupied by Dr. John D. Biggs,
which is the third door on the right
of Maiu Street, after leaving the
Bank of Martin County. It is a
wooden building, but is commo
dious and has every necessary ap
pointment for its uses. £ut we
would not be surprised to see a
brick building in its place in the
near future. There are some other
plans that Mr. Newell has, which
if carried into execution will be an
advantage to the town. Mr. New
ell takes, reads and pays for the
Enterprise. He practices law in all
thecourts. He gives special atten
tion to the examination of land ti
tles. He is agent and attorney for
the Wicomico Lumber Company,
which has its home offi-e at Liu
rel Del., a wealthy corporation.Mr.
Newell is a consistaut member of
the Baptist church in Williamston,
he is superintendent of his Sunday
school, he is on the Board of Trus
tees of church property. He is a
democrat, he has never married
but has a commendable inclination
in that direction. He is a christian
gentleman and has a hosts of
friends and admirers. His practice
increases each year and he has a
bright future before him. He has
no political aspiration, but it will
not surprise us if the good people
of Martin County demand his ser
vices in the future.

(a making a atrenuooa effort to urouaa
