Highest Ever Sold On Wednesday, there was the most phenomnal sale of tobacco in regard to prices, which was ever seen ou the Williamston market.

The rooms were appropriately decorated with Autumn leaves black cats and witches in profus ion, carrying out the color scheme of orange and black Jack o'lantems lent a weirdness to the whole, sug gestive of the season and the storfes connected with it. The first amusement provided by! the entertainers, was a Hiilowe'en contest in which Miss Frances Knight won the first prize, a hand some box of paper. Apples 011 a string, easily eluding any who tried to get a bite, furnished great amusement. Miss Mary Brown and F. M. Shute finished first in this contest. The guests were Invited into the dining room, alter all the games had been finished, where ambrosia artistically arranged iu oranges cut to represent pumpkins, was served with cakes and fruit.

After tak ing them a few days the pain left my back, my kidneys actad regu larly and the annoying bladder \ trouble was cured. I glaaly re- t :ommend Foley Kidney Pills." i Saunders & Fowden. c Everything went Demo cratic From the best estimates that can be obtained prior to the official count, North Carolina has retained her place in the Democratic column by 50,000 majority. Locke Craig and the entire State ticket are victors iu this splendid fight. Every District sends back its Democratic Congressman. Johu H. Small iu tbe First District runs away with his opponent, M. D. Liggett, of Beaufort County. The Legislature will be largely Democratic, and thus the re election of Senator Simmons is assured as he won out in the paitnary over Kitchin and Clnrk by 25,000 majority. The great victoty in the Nation with that iu County and State makes a complete Democratic ' boiuehold. Martin County accord in" to the table shown, voted as it 1 should, though there was a falling off in both Democratic and Repub lican ranks. The Democratic vote in both State and Nation was so large that people quit counting and just heralded the success of the party. Sad Accident On Thursday of last week, dur ing the exhibition of Sparks show at Robersonville, a negro from Stokes becoming angry with ano ther negro, threw a bottle at him. The negro dodged and tbe bottle struck the little son of Mr. Henry Whichard, who lives near Parmele, crushing his skull. As soon as the! negro saw what he had done, he proceeded to attempt leg bail, but the show management put their men after him and he was captured. He was brough* here and placed ic jail tr. await the injuries to the little boy. The doctors were never hopeful and Friday he died from the effects of the blow. The negro I was taken to Robersonville and had a hearing before a Justice of the Peace, who placed him under a $5,000 bond. Failing to secure this he was brought back and put ' iu jail to await the action of the Grand Jury at the December Term of court. > I Alabama, Florida, North Caro- ! lino, South Carolina, Keutucky, Tennessee.

( —— 1 Martin County showed by its 1 vote in the Senatorial contest that 1 the progressive spirit of Democracy r is in the ascendency in the hearts I of our people. t sr.oo a Year in Advance Hon. H. $. Ward Those who heard the speech of Hon. H. S. Ward in the interest of the candidacy of Judge Clark here on Monday night, were unanimous iu the opinion that it was the beat and strongest speech delivered here in a long time. Mr .Ward's earnest manner combined with logical de ductions, made the friends of Clark f' el that he had a worthy advocate and those who differed with him thoroughly enjoyed every word he said. Mr. Ward is well-known in Martin County as a sound Demo crat and one who neveT tails to lift his voice in advocacy of Democra tic principles. He is one of the strong young tnen of the State. His career since its beginning has been upward, and his campaign for Judge Clark a splendid display of ripe knowledge and a firm con viction of the righteousness of the cause lie represented. He was given the strictest attention here and warm applause by the friends of the other cuuoidates. He was introduced by Hon H. W. Stubbs, Chairman of tbe County Executive Committee. Tobacco Farmers Happy The acreage in tobacco in Mar tin Couutyihis year was larger tha.i for tbe past three seasons. The weed trew with a rapidity that plea.sed, but it was thought at one time that the crop would be of poor quality. But after being cured and properly handled, it was placed on the warehouse floors for the in spection of the buyers and brought price? before unheard of. People realized more on three acres of ijood weed than thev sold five-acre crops for before. This was done in all these Eastern markets, for in this section only has the crop amounted to much. Another year will soon be on us, and the preparation for the coming crop will begin. It will pay to put in a reasonable acreage in tobacco for the next year. Diversity your crop, Mr. Framer. Plant and plant early, and give verV best service to jeveryacreof land under cultiva tion. Raise home supplies, and tobacco, peanuts and a little cotton for money crops. The market here is as good as can be found for aU these products. To Subscribers A good number of our old friends and subscribers have recently come in and renewed.
