Mr. Joseph L. Woolard
The community was shoched acd
saddened on Sunday morning to 1
learn of the death of Joseph Latham t
Woolard at his home on Simmons 1
Avenue. He had retired in Bp- t
parent good health the night prev-
ious after conversing for some time 1
with his wife. About five o'clock
Sunday morning, he was found to j
be coffering with his heart and bis t
physician was hastily summoned. I
Every effort was made to restore 1
him but without avail, 4 and four
hours later be was dead. The 1
trouble was, no doubt, produced by
corpulency which seemed not to be ]
reduced by the very active life he i
On August 28th. 1858, be was 1
born at the Woolard homestead !
eight miles faom Williamston, and
was the son of the late Kenneth '
and Milley Woolard. At the age
of fifteen years, he professed taith
in Christ and joined the Macedonia
Cbristain Church near bis home
his interest in those things
which concerned hi 6 faith never
faltered. He was married to Miss
Gustie M. Leggett on January 4th.
1877 aQ d six children were born to
them, two of whom died young.
Those left with their mother to
mourn their loss are: Mrs. T. P.
Harrison, Myrtle, Joe A., and
Five years ago he moved to Wil
liamaton where he erected a factory
for the manufacture of the Wool
ard Cultivator, which has a sale in
many atatea. Mr. Woolard was a
genius and had just perfected a
cultivator that will make farming
easier. *He was an expert worker
in both wood and iron.
As a citizen he met the require
ments for the best and he will be
misted by the entire community.
He was large-hearted and loved
life to that degree that made him
an indulgent father and faithful
friend. By careful industry he had
saved a competency for bis family
who will miis his guiding band.
The funeral services were conduct
ed on Monday morning at the old
homestead by tbe Rev. John R.
Smith, pastor of tbe Macedonia
Church, in wbicb he worshipped
for years. A large concourse of
people were present to pay the last
maik of respect to their friend.

Elder Ashley D. Mizell 1
. i Dead
Tbe news of the death of Elder
Ashley Mizell at 12 o'clock on Sat- 1
urday night at Jamesville, where c
he was stricken with paralysis in «
the afternoon saddened the hearts
ot many friends and relatives. He I
was pastor of the Primitive s
Church at Jamesville and bad held 1
services just a few hours before.
After service be had waited for the 1
train to arrive which brought his I
son s wife and her little child. 1
Just before driving ont of town, I
the little girl asked for a drink of j
of water and Mr. Mizell went to 1
procure it for her. Not returning '
in due time, caused those in the 1
buggy to call him and he answered
that he could not tell what the tron- i
ble was with him. Dr. Smithwich 1
was summoned and tbe afflicted man
was taken to a residence and made
as comfortable as possible. Later 1
his condition prevented speech but .
there were no fears of immediate
death. But tbe summons came .
after a few hours of suffering, and
the soul returned to tbe God who
He was born in Martin County
near Brown's Spring on February
22nd. 1856, and had made a home
for himself and family ten miles
South of Williamston. On Dec.
10th 1879, he was married to Miss
Susan Hardiaon and to this union
were born five children, A. D.
Mizell, of Williamston, J. A. Miz
ell, of Robersonvile, John Mizell,
Mrs. Perley Manning and Mias
Bettie Mizell, of Martin County,
who survive him. Four years
after the death of bis first wife in
1404, he aarsied Miss Anna Phil-
Hps, of Edgecombe County, who
will miss him from her side forever.
Perhaps, no man in this section
enjoyed more thoroughly the con
fidence and esteem of tbe people
than did this Soldier of tbe Cross,
who for thirty years fought man
fully under His banner. For fif
teen years he had been serving in
the Bacred ministry and was belov
ed by his Chnrch people and all
thc»e who knew him best. His
home was always open to any who
sought shelter and food and his
neighbors knew that he sorrowed
with them and rejoiced when they
rejoiced. Truly a good man has
gene to his reward and tbe memory
tof bim will be treasured throughout
On Sunday afternoon at 5 o'clock
in tbe presence of a large numbers
of friends from various parts of the
county, tbe last sad rites were said
by Elder John N. Rodgerson and
tbe body was laid in tbe grave near

of Martin County:—
Permit me to thank you very

J. C. CRAWFORD.
A Strong Endorsement
Editor of the Enterprise,
I see through the columns of
vour paper that Mr J. C. Crawford
has again announced himself as a
candidate for tbe office of sheriff.
The voters of Martin County have
already thus far honored Mr. Craw
ford and be has proved himself well
worthy the confidence so placed in
him, having served tbe County
fakbiully and capably during his
encumbency and having shown
hinoM-'i eminently qualified for the
It is tbe opinion of myself and, I
may add with safety, of the great
majority of the voters of Hamilton
Township, that it would indeed be
folly to resort to any further ex
periment in seeking a man to fill
this office while we have so satis
factory and gratifying a certainty
within onr easy attainment.
Hoping that tbe voters of the
County will see fit to renominate
Mr. Crawford, I beg to remuin.
Very truly yours,
B. L. Long.
At the request of a number of my
friends, I herebv announce myself
a candidate for the House of Rep
resentatives subject to tbe action of
the Democratic Convention of
This May 28th, i9t2.
Meeting Last Night
The citizens of'the town met
with the Chamber of Commerce at
tbe City Hall last night and arrang

A. R. Dunning for Representa
In selecting a man to represent
Martin County in the House of
Representatives, as a voter I think
that the people could not make a
better choice than Hon. A. R.
Dunning. He is a farmer by birth,
having been trained to follow tbe
plow and did it- well. Now he sits
in his law office aud sympathizes
with tbe bard-worked farmers whom
be sees pass along, and would free
tbem from tbe monopoly which
gTinds tbem down.
Mr. Dunning is a successful and
prudent business man. wbo to my
mind, is pre-eminently the oue to
represent our county iu the next
session of the Legislature. His
career in life proves him to be a
man far beyond private interests,
but looking for tbe good of tbe
We as a unit realize the fact that
we need a man in our legislative

pleasant tone shout: "Dunning for

Tte little people enjoyed the
childish games, and the good things
to eat, but the crowning event to

> Pants Factory Secured
; Williamston has secured the
; Hamiltou Pants Factory and the
; plant will be moved here as quickly
; as possible. The company asked
that in addition to the site and cost
; of moving that $4,000 in stock be
5 subscribed. This was very readily
> taken by Messrs. C. H. Godwin,
j G. W. Blount and N. S. Peel.
s The business has bteu on a pay
i ing basis for some time and with
i bitter shipping facilities, it cau be
1 made very profitbale because a
larger volume of busibess can be
done. The members of the com
pany are among the first citizens of
the county, and Williamston will
welcome them heartily.
In these days of high cost of liv
ing, a medicine that gets a man up
out of bed and able to work in a
few,days is a valuable and welcome
remedy. John Heath, Michigan

trouble, was confined to bis bed,
unable to turn without help. "L
