Died in Baltimore
News of the death of Mrs.
George W. Blount reached here
this morning, and saddened the
hearts of friends and relatives.
Wednesday morning, Dr. and Mrs.
H. B.'York took her on a stretcher
to Baltimore to receive treatment.
Thursday an operation was per
formed on her, and the end came
today (Friday) at 4:20 a. m. G.
W. Blount was preparing to leave
for Baltimore when the telegram
came announcing her death.
Mrs. Blount had been in delicate
health all the year, and in July
went to the seashore for awhile.
After coming home she was com
pelled to remain in her room and
has suffered intensely with stomach
trouble. It was thought at one
time that her condition was better,
but later it was decided to carry
her to Baltimore.
She was a splendid type of the
Southern woman, refined, courte
ous and an earnest Christian and a
loyal member of the Methodist
Church. Years ago she moved
here with her husband ftom Bethel,
her native town, and no woman has
ever lived among this people who
formed stronger friendships. In
her home, she showed forth the
finest qualities which make a wife
and mother, and was in every truth
a help mate to him who is bereft.
Mrs. H. B. York aud Miss Carrie
Dell Blount are the only children
to mourn the loss of a mother.
The body of the dead will reach
here tomorrow from Baltimore.
The family have the deepest
spmpathy of the entire comir unity,
who grieve to know that a good
woman is gone from their midst.
T. L. Parks, Murrayville, Ga.,
Route 1, is in his 73rd year, and
was recently cured or a bad kidney
and bladder trouble. He says him
self: "I have suffered with my kid
neys. My back ached and I was
aenoyed with bladder irregularities.
I can trtihfully say, one 50c bottle
of Foley Kidney Pills cured me en
tiely." They contain no habit

Modern Woomen To Suffer
It develops that A. S. Coffield,
who was treasure of the local
Camp, No. 107, Modern Woodmen
of America, pocketed about SIOO,OO
which means that the Camp will be
suspended and tbe members will
lose their insurance policies. Co
ffield had failed to remit dues which
he collected and put in hit pocket.
Since he left for parts unknown, it
has been learned that the Camp
had suffered also.
Antoine Deloria, Postmaster at
Garden, Mich., knows the exact
facts speaks of the curative value
of Foley Kidney l'ills. He says:
"From my own experience I recom
mend Foley Kidney Pills, as a
great remedy for kidney trouble.
My father was cured of kidney
disease acd good nany of my neigh
bors were cured by Foley Kidney
Pills."—Saunders and Fowden.

was spent. Miss Blojint rendered

WILLIAMSTON. N. C.. FRIDAY. SEPTEMBER 6. 1912
» We wish tu Mesent*to the readers of THE EN-
S' TGBJ'RM' RT-'OII W jr.l. Taylor, a very noted evan
gelish of Lexington, Ky., who, with hissinger.D.
Ward Milan, will conduct a series of meetings (or
a| . the Robersonvt'le Christain CI lurch, beginning
Monday evening S.*p emb;r p, 1«>12.
Both the evangelist and the singer are distin
guished Southern gentlemen of the highest char-
Wi acter, unusually well well equipped tor the work,
each being an expert in his particular line,
and have held successful meetings all over the
li Read the following from the Prescott Daily
Hews, of Arkansas: "The meeting which began
two weeks ago at the Christian Church still con
tinnes with great interest interest. Dr. Taylor
and wife are both exceptionally talented persons
and have had enviable success as evangelists in
almost every state in the Union. Dr. Taslcr is a
logical and forcible speaker. -This coupled with
with a thorough knowlege of the scripture makes
him invincible in argument. Owing to the small
capacity of the church they were forced to remove
to the opera house last Sunday night. Even the
opera house was too small to contain the crowd
that flocked to hear Dr. Taylor on the subject:
'Meet nie at the Fountain.'. Never before has an
3 evangelist attracted such crowds in Prescott. Al
ready there has been several additions and greater
things are anticipatd."
J - And tlve f-oPlowing from th» S String JYru i*, of _
Ohio: "The series of revival meetings closed
last night at the Church of Christ. Owing to the
gjj fair and warm weather the largeskaudience since
S|s the opening of the meeting filled every available
*| space half an hour before the services began and
many were turned away.
J "Dr. Taylor's subject last evening was 'The
SSI Temptation of Jesus.' The sermon was scholarly
and eloquent. Evangelist Taylor does not use
notes but speaks rapidly and exactly, and„has.his
audience enthused at all times. Fifteen additions
were received last evening, making 120 additions
and conversions to date. The campaign of Dr.
Taylor was the most successful ever conducted by
any evangelist in Sebring and a grand reception
was giifen him before his departure Tuesday even
| ! „ ing. Monday evening Dr. Taylor gave a lecture,
'Facing the Mirror.' "
The Robersonville meeting, which will doubtless continue
for some weeks, is to begin at a very convenient time and,
we believe, under moit auspicious circumstances. It will be
one of the greatefl meetings of the year and the people gen
gp erally are cordially invited to attend as many of these meet
l(J] ing as possible.
Boiler Took Flight
Tuesday night about 11:55, the
boiler at the power house went up
in tbe air and fell seventy-five feet
in the rear of tbe building. The
noise was heard throughout the
towu, and soon a crowd of anxious
citizens was on tbe ground.
The fireman, Alfred Sherrod,
had noticed that the lights weie
growing a bit dim and v\ as picking
•1 leak in the water gauge, when be
felt that something was wrong
Before be could get safe a pcice
struck him on the forehead, and
several other places on his body.
He quickly crawled out into tbe
engine room and the explosion
came. M. S. Moore, electrician
for the company, had just gone
home. No doubt, if he had been
at the plant, both he and the fire
man would have been killed as they
would have been in tlie boiler room.
It will be several days before the
repairs can be made.

On the afternoon of August 30th,
1912, there passed across the bar
the soul of Louis Cushing Harri
son, whose valiant struggle for life
had lasted for five weeks at his
home on Haughton Street. There
was no apparent pain, no complain
ins —just the silent slipping away
from life's moorings into the sea of
the Great Beyond.
Born on May 4th. 1885, of
sturdy stock and with environments
productive of right living, he grew
to maturity with the stamp of man
ly beauty in form and feature.
Ambitious to enter the world of
trade and to make a place for him
self where brain and muscle count
for a young man, he entered the
academy at Buie's Creek. While
a student there he professed faith
in Christ and joined the Missionary
Baptist Church. His allegiance to
the Church and devotion to the
principles which it represented,
made his constant to all duties and
an enthusiastic member of the
After completiug the business
course at school, he accepted a
position with the mercantile firm of
Harrisou Bros & Company at Wil
liamston. By his industry, strict
attention to every detail and clever
ness to customers, he formed stong
friendships. It can be said with
truth that he was the best beloved
man in the town, and this, too, be
cause he was clean in mind, body
and soul. A high sense of honor
guided and guarded his steps, and
kept his life with the whiteness of
the snow which falls upon the

Miss Anna Sherer, of Blacksburg,

the years, has been crowned with a
happiness approximating the ideal
in the home. That poilteness of
the heart which is at;in to love, so
inherent in his nature, gave rise to
the most agreeable politeness oi
His years were too few, those
who love hira say, but the quiet
sweetness of his life, perhaps, had
accomplished the work which the
Master of the Vineyard had set
apart for him. His was "the white

Gcul had need for him yonder.
Amid earth's rarest offerings of

A Great Convention
Williamston overflowed with
simon pure Democracy on Wednes
day. The County Convention was
called for that date and Tuesday
night the staunch followers of the
party began to come in bv train and
vehicle. Wednesday the town was
full, it being the largest convention
since 1898. Candidates and their
admirers worked faithfully and
when the convention was called to
order at 12:30, nil things were
ready for business. Hon. H. W.

Committee, called the convention
to order, and S. L. Ross, of Rober
sonville, was elected permanent

A. Corey, Justus Everett, Clayton
Moore and A. R. Dunniug. After
the second ballet, Everett and
Corey withdrew and the next count
stood 21 for Moore and 34 for
Dunniug. The contest for sheriff
resulted iu an easy victory for J. C.
Crawford, the present incumbent
who has occupied the office for
fourteen consecutive years. His
opponent, H. T. Roberson, Jr., of
Griffios Township, received 20
votes. Perhaps, the greatest inter
est was in the result for Register of
