WILLIAMSTON, N. C., FRIDAY, APRIL 26. 1912
Halifax Bacon Brought to
A large number of people from
Martin County whose veins are full
of sporting blood, attended the
races at Scotland Neck Wednesday.
The race track at that place is one
of the finest in the State and those
Halifax folks are enthsiastic over
it and own plenty of animals that
can show their heels to every otner
horse save when Martin County is
represented. Then there is some
thing else doing for old Martin
always trots alone the best in
borsefitsh as in many other feat
ures It is estimated that morei
than a thousand people siw thej
race? aud yelled for their favorites. |
while the Oak City Hand rendered
"Everybody's Doin'*lt," aud other
popular airs to try to keep the
spirits of the Halifax folks from
sinking below normal But this
was a thing impossible as the re- j
suit of the heats knocked things j
Tlie tree for all race WHS cutered
by Little Ruby, Windsor Maid,
Limber Twig aud Plyuu.utii Rock.
The latter broke,a reiu and across'
plowed ground he rushed with the I
speed of a tornado leaving all com j
petri&rs behind on the track. For j
three heats Limher Twig, owned!
bv Dr. W. E. Warren, of William-j
etou and driven by J. Paul Simpson, j
proved himself the superior and!
easily carried off the honors, money '
and cheers of ; the 400 Mr rtin Coun- j
tv men. - The time imde by |
this racer was 2:24 and
ID the 2:301*00, Farmer Gectiy, ]
the blood bav son of the famous!
John R. Gentry, owned and driven I
by Dr. John D. Biggs, trotted!
under the pole with an easy stride!
anead of Silver ttndtrand Electric]
Sign. The last, a road race, wis, j
I entered by Gve horses and Perry
I Jenkins won first honors.
By train and autos a crowd of
Williamstcn people went to enjov
j the hospitality of the Halifax peo
ple and to bring home the best in |
' the prizes and purses. They had a \
good time and were treated royally
by those fine folks who took their j
defeat with perfect good feeling |
and who extended a cordial invita
tion ''to come up again."
Republican County Convention
The republicans of Martin Couu
ty met here a: the Court House
Monday afternoon and were called
to order by Wheeler Martin, Chair
man of the Executive Committee, j
The chairman stated the purpose
-ot the convention which was to
elect delegates to the State, Con- j
greasioual and Senatorial conven- j
tions. Joseph M. Sitterson ws*.
elected chairman and C. C. Fugan j
John R. Mobley, Wheeler Mar- i
tin, Jr., John L Hinesand Wheeler I
Martin, Sr , were elected delegates j
and A. C. Smith, R. E. Grimes, j
J M. Sitterson and H. D. Cowan
alternates to the State Convention, j
J. T. Price, J. L. Davenport, W. •
JS. Vick and Wheeler Martin were 1
elected delegates and W. Watters,'
John F. Hardison, Duffy Mines
and J. S. Ay en* were chosen alter- j
nates to the Congressional Conven- j
W. T. Coburu, Simon Manning,!
William Peel and M. S. Fagan
were elected delegates, and Warren
\V. Watters, James Jackson, An-!
gustus Taylor and H, D. Ayers
were elected alternates td the Sena
torial Convention. ,
Thefe being no fnrtfter business
the convention then adjourned.
Dr. J. T. R. Neil. Prop. River
side Drug Co., Greenville, S C.
writes recently, "I have beerf a
practicing physician and druggist
tor over 35 years and sold and ad
ministered many kidney medicines
but none to equal Foley Kidney
Pills. They are superior to any I
ever used, and give the quickest
and most permanent relief."
It has been recently noted by the
thinking citizen that the inanuers
of many of the boys and girls in
this town need reforming and need
it bad. The younger set is simply
running amuck. To one who was
at the Citv Hall on Wednesday and
Thursday nights of list week—es
pecially to a stranger—the scene
was a jjood representation ot a,
crowd of roughs, needing only the
popping ot" pistols to make the
thing complete. On Wednesday
night, "The Mystery of the Maine''
was on tle programme. To every
American man, woman and child
| any mention of the should
be treated with reverence, for with
in her shattered quarters remained
for thirteeu ye ars thfe bodies of the
brave men who went into the har
bor of Havana on a mission of
peace to help a down trodden p-o I
pie. But the exhibit here Was!
I greeted with cat calls, whistles and |
| noisy y» lis.
Thursday night a large number!
1 of the audience, mainly the younger '
J boys and giils, 110 donbt, decided j
I that the previous night was too
1 mild and so proceeded to warm up!
! things. The Sludebaker Company, |
!of Detroit, had arranged to have!
several thousand feet of films to
exhibit their automobile, construe-1
J tion. Many of their have j
j been sold here and much interest j
I was manifested in the exhibit, and j
!it was, too,, a fine showing of the
'making of cars which stand for j
strength and beauty. The pictures!
1 were most interesting and the races
j were splendid exhibitions of the
lendurance of the cars. But the!
!exhibitbr ha i great dilfiriilty in!
.making himself heard. He was j
j giving a free and vjet was M+u j
I accorded the courtesv due a taenia?. I
I Many people in the audience)
i were thoroughly disgusted and)
j many were angry, but no effort was j
1 made to ej ;ct the little r.cisy things I
j and they are ev.de itly not taughr j
Ito be have. Tiie management ot j
! the Opera House should have en-1
i forced order. Such conduct i.i ia! 1
| ciliated to keep people trom at-
J tending shows. The town shouhl !
jbe free from such a stain It peo
ple will not behave, m;ilu: theui.
The habit of ill manners is growing
and in the end will v.'ork gr.atj
| harm. Begin to stop it now.
j The services being conducted at j
| the Episcopal Church by Ktv. Joli-n j
R. Matthews, of Manchester, Kng-T
j land,, will close Sunday ulght.
I Each morning there is a Bible
I Study, which is both instructive
land interesting, Mr. Matthews'!
j clear explanations of Bib.'e truth!
J appealing to every one. At night, j
, the discourses are strong, fortifulj
I and Convincing —the earnestness of j
| the man making his words . sink 1
I deep into the minds and hearts of
i the congregation. Sunday morn-'
j iug services w'iil be at 11 o'clock!
I and again at Bin the evening. Atj
, 3:30 he will speak to the men oniy. j
The public is tuosft earnestly' in-,
vited to hear Mr. Matthews at each
j 'of the remaining services.
