Mr. Gurkin has the "anniversary of his birth only evtry fonr years, and on these oc casions he entertains his friends in a most happy manner. The form of entertainment ou last Thursday evening was a dance and it pioved to be one of the delightful and largely attended fu ictions Willi amston h*s ever had. The ball room was tuslily decor ated in white and red, the ceiling ( being «turlrlcd with white and ted electric bulbs, and the effect was ver'v pretty. The music, furnished by Forbes' Orchestra, of Washing tun, N. C., was of an unusually high order and caused the happy dancers to flit atrav the hours in such a merry manner that the time for leaving caine too soon. The elegantly dressed women and the sweet odor of the flowers, together with the S.OOI, refreshing air of the beautiful winter t'.fght, made the place an ideal one tor youth and beauty to forget the care of the day and spend an evening of rare j pleasure by engaging in the charm •ing accomplishment of danctng. Mr Gurkin, dressed &la the mode of Palm Beach,. with his partner, Miss Winifred Nicholson, ! received the guests. Misf> Nichei- I son was never more handsomely ) gowned, wet ring a pink cieatlon and carrying a large "bunch" of American Beauty roses. Mrs Al bert S CcfTield served punch dur • i'.n* the evening.,. Geuefal dancii g was engaged in at first, and at twelve o'clock supper was serve! at small tables arranged for four. The tneuu was one which pleased and had been carefully prepared for the many guests. After Kupper the cotillion was danced. There were about one hundred and fifty guests piesent, and so the evening passed and all hearts were glad alike with the host. The many friends of Mr. Gurkin wish for him maiy returns of his natal day, and hope that he will always be as happy as he made his g&ests on the evening of February 29th 1912. ' • C. A.

WILLIAMSTON, N. C.. FRIDAY, MARCH B'. 1012 Brad Badley To Die i The decision of the Supreme : Court in the case of Brad Bagley for the murder of Chief of Police White ou the night of August 15th, 1911, will give much satisfaction in Williamston. Bagley was tried here in September and found guilty of murder in the first degree. An appeal was taken by bis attorney, Judge F. D. Winston, and the same wa heard last week, the Sup reme Court confirming the decision of the lower court A. K. Dunning, assistant presecutor, and Judge Winston boih appeared before the Supreme Court. The murder of Chief White was deliberately planned and executed, but Bnglew was too sure of his safety from suspicion and .dually ran across the principal street of the tdun under the full glare of electric lights He was easily sns« pected and as caeily taken iuto custody by the officers He had followed the dirty ttade of the "blind tiger"'so openly and been unmolested, that lie felt scfe from the clutches of the law Because Chiet White bad caught him at the nie«n business be concocted the dastardly deed in bis heart and while the officer, after finishing his work of the day, was walking to wards hia home to seek rest for the night. Bagley shot fioiu ambush in the vard of Col. Wb?eler Martin and in an hour a dutiful officer anU splendid citizen was dead. The citizens of the town, while realizing the enormity of the crime, waited patiently for the conviction of the murderer and felt relieved when the verdict was pronounced. There has never been any doubt Of the decision of the higher court —the evidence wan »o i ;>iai'\ "fctrf convincing, and the trial conducted so fairly, that there could be noth ing more than a confirmation of the decision. The hearts and nerves of men here have never been so sorely tried and the torebcarancc, perhaps, has not been equaled in the State. When the governor shall appoint a day for the electro cution of the murderer and that duy shall come and the law, which he outraged, be put into effect, then wilJ Williamston people be satisfi ed. The safety and honor of the community are in the balance wlitn such bets fail to meet with the proper punishment.
