C., FRIDAY, APRIL 26. 1912 Halifax Bacon Brought to Martin 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 into smithereens. 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 secretary. 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 tion, 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.

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." Need Reforming; 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. Mission Services 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.
