Mrs. B. T. Wynne Dead
Last Thursday afternoon, Jnfy
13th, at 3 o'clock the funeral ser
vices of Mrs. Mary Wynne were
conducted from the home near
Everett? by Rev. Geo. J. Do well in
the presence of a large assembly of
friends and relatives. She was the
daughter of the lace Daniel and
Cynthia Mobley and at the time of
her death was adout 56 years of
age. On December 18th, 1879,
she was married to B. T. Wynne,
Esq., who with four children sur
vive her. These are Ashley D ,
Joseph H., Ellen D , and Mollie
Hers was a long and tedious ill
ness attended with great pain and
suffering most of the time. Her
sickness began December 1910 and
lasted until July the 17th, when
she was relieved by the sleep of
I death.
j Mrs. Wynne was an excellent
type of the good and faithful wife
and mother. The neighbors found
in her a true frieud; the sick, a
sympathizer; the neeily, a helper.
Some 22 years anoshe was baptized
into the fellowship of I'iuey Grove
Church at Everetts by Elder Gee.
J. Do well, and during her whole
life was a faithful member. Strange
are God's mysterious dealings, and
His ways past finding out, but He
doeth all things well. We are as
sured that it was right to call this
dear one home, or He would have
left her to cheer the loved ones now
] mourning to be !eft so disconsolate.
' May this sad dispensation of His
; lead them to strive to
1 reach that beautiful laud to which
we are confident she has gone,
where faith is swallowed up in
fruition aud hope in possession,
until tbey shall plant their feet ou
the everlnstirg Rock of Ages, and
find fiim footing when the world
and all its possessions shall slip
from under their feet. Then the
same God whom she loved aud
served shall reunite the scattered
family and they shall dwell with
the Saviour in ihe New Jerusalem
forever. May he who tempers the
wind to the shorn lamb, mercifully
watch over them to the er.d of life's
"He that has msdt bis refuse God,
Shall find a most secure adobe;
Shall walk all day beneath his
And thtre at night, shall rest his

Bold Hold-Up
Sunday night when about five
miles from town on the Washing
: ton road, J. A. Woolard, son of the
late J. L. Woolard, was held up bv
two negroes, who wore a white
Cloth abont thetr faces. Yonng
: Woolard had driven out to bis
father's farm after the Inte train
had come in to carry a friend.
When returning about ten o'clock,
he saw a mau come out from the
road which leads to the home of
Mr. Kader Lilley and heard him
call for him (Woolard) to stop.
: He struck his horse but the animal
was caught by the Degro who held
a pistol in his hand. Another ue
[ gro came up between the wheels
• and demanded that he turn the con
-1 tents of his pockets out. Wool
-1 ard, though naturally frightened,
: had presence of mind eucugh to
slip his purse containing about in the waistband of his pants
und then turned all his pockets out,
finding only about Si. 25. The
1 men had demanded the money upon
, the threat that they would take the
team, while pointing a couple ot
guns nt the boy. After thi money
was secured, they let him go and
he drove quickly to town and re
ported the crime to the sheriff.
WoolafU failed to recognize the
men, but it is thought that they
were from town and seeing the
young man go out and suspecting
that he car.itd seme cash, secured
bicycles aud waited for him to re
turn. Such occurrences ere rare in
this section and it is a serious matter,
1 The number of vagrants around
1 the town make it highly probable
that the parties reside here.
Founder of The Enterprise
Monday afternoon, Mr. J. Dale,
of Kinston, was a most welcome
, visitor to the office. Thirteen
years ago Mr. Dale came here and
established Thk Enterprise in j
tbe old Williams Building.
Mr. Dale soou sold the paper to !
tbe late G. W. Newell and has j
, since engaged in the business of a |
marole yard at Kinston, where he
does better work for less monty
than the average monument dealer.
The letters which appears at the
head of the paper, designating its
name were cut from a piece of wood |
by Mr. Dale wjtn a knife. Later j
lead type was used as now. v
It is an odd fact that the first]
copy of The Entbri-kise that
rolled off tbe old Washington hand j
press, wa r takt-n by W. C Man
ning, who ten ycers after became
editor. Coming events did not j
: cast their shadows before him, and j
so he knew not of the responsibility ,
wbich should come to him later. I
Mr. Dale was-much pleased with ;
tbe looks of things about the office \
and expressed his appreciation of |
the sheet whi'.h is'sent out weekly, j
We enjoyed bis visit aud hope ;
that he will come again because we j
•live—as we desire no stone for I
years to conic.

Poverty Soshul
One of the mot unique acd en
joyable affairs here for years was
the Proverty Soshul given by the
Aid Society of the Baptist Church
on Tuesday night at the Dixie

large warehouse was brilliantly ill*
uminated and at convenient spots'*
about the floor were placed tables
(rem whence things good to eat
were served in attractive style and
a rustic well furnished refreshing
lemonade. But the chief features
were the trials before Judge Dun
ning and the District School con
ducted by Mrs. John D. whose
impersonation of the old maid
teacher could not have been ex
celled. Policeman Kowdeu arrest
ed people and carrying them be
fore the Judge, bad fines for spoon
ing, flirting, sport ng, etc., impos
ed. Tbis created leads of fun.
The commencement exercises of
tlie school in which the older peo
pie acted as pupils was funprovok
ire. The debate between John L.
Hassell and judge Dunning to de
cide the whulesomeness of peas and
collards, was one of the most at
j ti active numbers on the programme.
Everybody lincl a good time and
i partook heartily of the 'cue and

I amounted to S6O.
