Ordinance Needed
This tows is beginning to live on
high speed in the automobile line.
There ire getting to be numbers of
cars and reckless driving should
never be fallowed in the beginning
or after. There is an ordinance
which demands that a rate of ten
miles per hour be observed in the
town limits, but no attention is paid
to it. Watch the can as they come
. speeding on the sand-clay drive
along Haugton Street, and you
will readily see that the ordinance
, is violated dozens of times each
day. Reckless driving is always
attended with danger even if the
, power is within the hide of an
ox —he is apt to take a sudden dive
into an adjoining wood. No man
has a right to endanger the lives of
others, and all accidents can be
traced to the recklessness of some
1 one.
Perhaps, the most "dangerous
drive is the curve at the store of J.
B. Speller. It is very short and
narrow and two machines coming
in opposite directions at a rapid
rate are certain sooner or later to
crash and some one will pay the
penalty tfith his life. The City
Fathers should pass 'an ordinance
requiring a speed at this curve of
five miles au hoar, every, violation
to be met with a penalty of SSO.
Just one lone fifty would be suffi
cient to teach others the lesson.
If such an ordinance is not passed
and enforced, there will be trouble
tor cue if not more peopie and
when lives are lost or serious in
juries sustained the damage cannot
be repaired.
Court Held One Day
What was, prehaps. the shortest
session of the Superior Court of
Martin County, was held here
Monday. The June Term is usual
ly as short as is consistent with the
dockets, for the farmers are too
busy with the crops to spend much
time in town, and so the term is
often to them a great inconvenience.
Judge Carter had the cases on the
criminal docket disposed of, Hill
Johnson, who was so charmed with
the pistol of his employer that lie
took it away with him, received the
longest sentence—six months on
Edgecombe roads. Several other
minor cases were tried and the
civil docket which contained only
a few minor castr, was laid over
until September.
Judge Carter left on the after
noon train for bis home in the
We*t, The visiting lawyers Wt
also and the June Tertfl Of Court
ended almost before it began.
Wendesday morning, June 12,

ed by Rev. N. G. Bethea. Mr.

A Little Child Dead *
Hmma Virginia, the teu moDth
old infant daughter of Mr. and Mrs.
Linwood Smithwick, died June
10th, 1912, after two week* suffer
ing. The little child was bright
with the promise of .life and had
always been strong physically, but
the ravages of disease wasted the

Bnt gone unto that school,
Where she no longer needs
Our poor protection
And Christ Himself dotb rule."

Killed Bear with Knife
W. C. Ellis, a young man of
Griffins Township, is the champion
bear fighter of this section and per
haps of the State.
Youug Ellis works in the log
woods fcr the Dennis Simmons
Lbr., Company and while en route
1 home on Thursday afternoon of
last week, he discovered a bear
crossing the road in front of him.
Feeling in his pocket for a weapon
he found only a pocket knife. With
, this he rushed on the beast and
stuck the blade of the side of the
, bear's head. It was so finily im
bedded in the bone that for an in
stant Ellis could not withdraw it,
and his hand slipped off and land
ed in bruin's mouth, two teeth
going into his finger. Before any
further damage was done, the bear
opened hi* mouth EJllis withdrew
nis hand, pulled the kni/'e out and
cut the throat of bear, which was
about a year old, rather small and
in poor condition.

Many Shirtwaists
Nta:ly ico wearers of shirt
waists—cr, more properly, coat
sbirts—appeared on the streets of
Raleigh today, defying public opin- |
ion, if it might be against comfort,
and reveling in the freedom from
coats. Every summer tbe ranks of!
the female wearers of shirtwaists
have increased, and it is expected
that be!ore July comes several
hundred Raleigh men will be mem
bers of the shirtwaist company.
There is really no reason wbjha
man should not appear on the
streets without his coa*. Let him
keep his face and hands and shirt
clean and there is no objection to
his going sans his coat. At least
that is the argument of the fellows
who have started out this warm
weather without their coat. —Times
On June 14th, at Robersonville,
Mr. Harvey Roberson and Miss

si.oo a Year in Advance
The White Memorial
fht movement to erect a suitable
shift lo the memory of the lament
ed Captain W. R. While, who on
August 15th, 1911. was shot down
by Brad Bagley, and died a martyr
to the cause of good government,
has not to this time reached that
point which the citizens of the town
desired. The failure has not been
from a lack of appreciation or in
difference, but because of a failure
to collect the proposed funds. Some
people paid at once and these funds
ar- in hand, and now it Is desired
to secure the full amount and erect
the memorial in the near future.
A shaft to the memory of Cap
tain White will not only show how
men who die tor duty's sake are
esteemed but will n'so tell to the
present and future generations that
the citizens ot Williamston stand
tor law ind order. Wheeler Mar
tin, Jr. has the list of subscribers
to the fund and is interesting him
j self in the movement. Those who not contributed and- desire to
do so, can hand the amount to hira
and receive credit f 9 r same on the
list of dorory.
