The Match Trust
The price of matches hasiccreas
ed 25 per cent within the last six
months. The Republican govern
ment is fostering every trust that
can possibly live under the light of
the sun. But for the immense dis
; tance of that orb, these same Rep
j üblicans would corner the sunshine
: and sell it for a dollar per rav de
! livered when and where they decid
ed. In the case of the natch trust,
j the c : tizens of Williamston are es
1 ! pecially interested because they aie
forced to pay so much into the al
ready well-filled pouches of the
) trust just to g=t a little light, where
they should be given the full glare
The government has established
a pest office (or did establish one
j here in thedong ago) and all things
, necessary 10 accommodate the peo
ple (for it is the office or the peo
ple), are supposed to be provided.
But it is all supposition for one
, essential thing is lacking—a light
to enable the renter of a box to
• work the combination. The build
-1 ing is equipped for electric lights,
: but these are cot allowed to burn
I any longer than it takes to open
the mail. So unless voa come
down with the mail pouches, a man
1 will have to use nearly a box of j
Diamond or Coast matches to pro- 1
cure his mail. This is where the
match trust gets the innings on this
people here. The ltss light the
1 more matches f.ud greater earnings
for the trust, .so that the g. 0. p.
can be boosted.
1 The office here is a presidential
appoiutmeut and vaysa good salary
—surely enough to furnish lights.
Any official receiving his pay from
the public treasury should desire to
j furnish the nest to the people.
Folks arc tired of being inconveu
. ienced and kept in the dark. It is
earnestly hoped that the' Baltimore
• Convention will/start a movement
to furnish us more light and better
light, and so keep the match bill

WILLIAMSTON, N. C., FRIDAY, JUNE 7, 1912
Body of Woman Found
While fishing in the upper waters
of Creelt on Monday, Mr.
Jor Gurkin found the body of a
woman in the midst of some bushes.
He did not investigate enough to
fully ascertain whether it was the
body of a white or colored wnnan,
but thinks that it was white. He
reported to the authorities here,
but as the body was fourd in Ber
tie County, it was deemed advisa
ble to report the same to the auth
orities in tlia* - county and Sheriff
Crawford reported the case to the
Sheriff of Bertie.
It i- supposed that the wouian
" was drownded somewhere up the
river during th; freshet several
weeks ago and was floated down
through the swamps and became
entangled in the bushes at the spot
found. Last week the body or a
negro was found floating in the
tiver and was tied up at Hamilton,
but was later cut aloose and after
wards it was tied up at Jamesville,
From tbere it was allowed to float
out into the Sound. These cases
should have the attention of the
Coroners of the counties where they
are found. It is terrible to know
that human bodies are fioatirg
about on the waters adjacent to
centers of life and activity.
Later information has been re
ceived that the Coroner of Bertie
County held an inquest over tho
body and found it to he that of a
white woman, aud that she was the,
victiom of foul play, as the breast
had been.split open from the throat
downward. Tbere is eo clue to
' her identity.
Mm Coughs snd Brtaks Ribs
After a frightful coughing speil
1 a mau in Neenah, Wis., felt ter
rible pains in his side and his doc
tor found two ribs bad been broken.
1 What agony Dr. King's New Dis
covery would have saved him. A
few teaspoonful ends a late-cough,
while persistant use routs obstinate
cough®, expels stubborn colds or
heals weak, sore lungs. "I feel
sure its a Godsend to humanity,"
writes Mrs. Effie Mortoq, Colum
bia, Mo. 'for I believe 1 would
I have consumption-today. if I hul
not use! this great remedy." Its
guaranteed to .satisfy, and you can
get a free tried bottle or 50-cent or
$1 00 size at Sounders & Fowden.
On last Sunday evening at four
o'clock, June* 2nd 1912, the nup
tial rites were solemnized between
Mr. James R. Manning, an iudus- j
tnous and prosperous young man
of Martin County and Miss Alice !
Brown, also of Martin County, v/bc
is loved and admired by all who|
have had the good fortune to know
-"her Tin biide's boose was the ;
scene of the happy event, and the!
ceremony performed by Elder J
Ashley D. M'.zell, of the Primitive j
After the ceremony the bridal
party repaired to the home of the
groom for the reception. A ho-t I
of friends and relatives join ic
many congratulatory wishes that
nothing may ever mar their pleasure
along the bridal path, and that in
numerable joy* and infinite happi
ness may be as laurels
upon this happy union.
There was a beautiful marriagei
at the Vifinif nf Mr. Jack Crnftnn in .
Gold Point, Sunday evening, June
2nd, 1912. Mr. J. T Taylor, of
Robersonville, and Miss Blanche
Daniel, the beautiful and charming
daughter of Mr. McDaniel, of
Robersonville, were happily urited
by Christian cere:uouy.
We wish them a happy voyage
over the matrimonial sea.
