thority that Mr. Fred Robnclc,
near Spring Green, has as fine if
not finer tobacco than any farmer
in the County. He was early in
getting plants out. His crop is
mostly topped and is in fine con

and understands the science of the

—The members of the Episcopal
Sunday school picniced ou the
church lawn Tuesday afternoon.
The original plan to meet at Leg
gettsßridge.had to be abandoned on
account ot inability to secure teams.
Dispite this disappointment, for
children always enjoy going where
the liquid waters flow, the hours
passed pleasantly. Every-thing to
tempt the palate had been provid
ed and loads of it. This recogni
tion of the good attendance of
each child was much appreciated
aud thoroughly enjoyed, both by
young and old.
News was received here this
week that Mr. DonC. Godwin who
left here last fall to prepare him
self for the examination of naval
cadet aspirants which was held in
Washington City last week, had
successfully past the literary exam
ination to that college. We under
stand that Mr. Godwin has yet to
undergo the physical exami
nation which we understand is to
take place soon. We congratulate
Mr. Godwin on having passed in
the literary examination and hope
ha is as successful in the physical
exams as he was in the preceeding
one. , . ,
—lt will doubtless interest hun
dreds of ont farmer readers to
know that Prof. W. P. Massey, so
long and so successfully identified
with the Practical Farmer, has
severed his connection with that
paper, and will hereafter write reg
ularly for The Progressive Farm
er, of Raleigh, N. C. Certainly
no man in Southern agricultural
work has won a greater following
than Prof. Massev, and as his life
work has been in the South, he
will hereafter contribute only to
Sonthern farm papers. His let
ters will appear in The Progressive
Farmer each week.

Death at Mrs. S. Fannie Biggs.

The Death Angel came at one
o'clock p. m. on Tuesday, June
25th, and relieved her of the suf
fering which she had borne with
cheerfulness for four years. A
stroke of paralysis had made her
an invalid, and robbed her of the
pleasure of helping others, a duty
She was horu at lite old Coffield >
homestead in Martin County on
Sept., 16 1831, the second child of
William and Maria Coffield Craw
ford. In early life, she became the
wife of Mr. John Latham, a large
pla uter, and uiadu her home in
liast Williams ton. On June it,
1863, several years after the death
of her first liusbatul, she married
Mr. Joseph D. Biggs, and speut
many happy years, presiding over
his home, South of Wil amstoti.
Of this union, two children were
born-Mrs. Chloe M. I/tttier and
Joseph D Biggs, who survive her,
and with whom she has made her
home since the death ot her hus
baud in iBSy.
Horn and reared under the old
-Cti'tUetn regime, she grew up
dignified, gentle, sincere aud re
filled and aoted for persona) beauty
which she retained though life the
ideal type of woman so prominent
in the south before the war. Of
strong domestic tastes, she gave
her time and energy to the man
agement of her home, making it
alike beautiful to the stranger aud
the loved ones dwelling therein.
Her truth and honesty eminently
fitted her for a mother, whose pre.
cepts and examples shone forth iu
every day life, giviug strength of
character to those under her care.
At the age of twenty five, she
became a member of the Methodist
Church and through all the vi
cissitudes of life, clung to the
faith. She was kind iu her feel
ing for .others, charitable in her
acts and liberal as all strong char
acters are. During her years of
suffering, her faith in Christ grew
brighter and her interest in His
Church never lessened. The end
came as comes the sunset after a
glorious day calm and peaceful.

The citizens of Hamilton, were
aroused Saturday night at 2
o'clock by the news that robbers
had entered the stores of Baker &
Sal.sbury and Haislip & Co. No
time was lost in securing blood
hounds from Pitt County. The
dogs trailed to the river, where it
is supposed the uieu took a boat.
Of course the trail was lost, when
water was struck.
It is not knowu what amount of
goods was taken.
Sunday night, t,he store of
Johnson & Everett at Oak City was
entered and some goods stolen. It
is supposed that the same robbers
did the work as in Uamilton. They
evidently left by following the rail
road track, as some merchandise
was found along the side of the
track, one package being a pair of
shoes from Baker & Satsbury. No
clue as to the identity of the burg
lars has been found yet.

John Doe died last week after
a short illness, leaving a widow
aud five small children. Mr. Doe
was seemingly a prosperous iner
chant, but In settling his estate
his stock of merchandise had to
lie sold at a discount of 50 per ct.
aud the entire iucome was ulmorlied
in paying his debts. Nothing wax
left to his family. Mr, Doe had
intended taking Life Insurance,
but put it off until it was too late.
It would grieve him now if he
could kuow that bis family is an
object of charity.
Richard Roe died suddenly this
morniug while on the train en
route to New York. His remaius
will be brought home for inter
ment. Mr. Roe was a man of large
business capacity and foresight.
Just one year ago he taok a f 10,000
Life Insurance Policy for the bene
fit of his fa.uily. This amount
well invested will bring an annual
income to educate his children and
support his family comfortably.
