WILLIAMSTON, N. C.. FRIDAY, JUNE 13. 1913
ingly by Misses Pjella Lanier,
Mary Dare Brown and Lettie
Critcher. Another chorus which
was one of the most attractive
numbers during the evening was
"The Dance of the Pine Tree
Fairies.'' Miss Delia Lanits was
first soprano and was asisted by
Misses Daisy Manning, Jessie
Brown, Eloise Meadows, Essie
Peel, Mary Dare Brown, Carrie
Dell White and Clara Jones. The
last number on the programme
was a pantomine—"Holy City,"
sung with characteristic expres
sion by Mr. Harry A. Biggs and
pantomined by fifteen girls cloth
ed in white flowing robes with
girdles. They made a most beau
tiful picture and were a fitting
finale to the evening.
Throughout the hours, the au
dience expressed their apprecia
tion of the music as interpreted
by the pupils, whose training by
their respective teachers had been
thorough. Miss Critcher gave
four prizes, two for attendance
to Misses Daisy Manning and
Sallie Harris and two for Scholar
ship to Misses Mary B. Harrell
and Beulah Baker. Miss Mattie
Lou Anderson won the prize for
scholarship under Miss Jones.
These prizes .were presented in
words which charmed, by Mr.
John L. Hassell. The members
of the two classes were: Miss
Jones' Class; Charles Godwin, Jr.,
Mattie Lou Anderson, Louise
Upton, Fannie Biggs Martin,
Eloise Meadows, Helen and Janet
Miss Critcher's Class; Daisy
Manning, Carrie Dell White,
Mary Bell Harrell, Katie Lilley,
Mary Clyde Leggett, Janie Ed
wards, Pearl Meadows, Sal fie
Harris, Rose Crowell, Beulah
Baker, Jessie Brown.
The death of Thomas H. Cof
field occured at his home in Mar
tin County on June 10th. 1913.
His health had not been good for
some time and death came to end
his sufferings. He was the de
scendant of one of the oldest and
most prominent familes in the
county, and had many friends
relatives, among whom are one
brother and two sisters, Hop. J.
B. Coffield, Mrs. Martha Williams
and Mrs, Charles Beckert. Sev
eral children survive him also.
Misses Clara Jones and Lettie
Critcher arranged a recital with
their classes on Friday evening
at the Opera House. Miss Jones
had seven pupils on the program
me and Miss Critcher eleven.
The larger number of the pupils
were young, but showed remarka
ble advancement in memorizing
The programme opened with a
duet by the youngest pupils of
the classes, Beulah Baker and
Charles Godwin, Jr., who pleased
the audience greatly. The eighth
number was a chorus—"Sweet
Little Girl and the Quaint Squee

Mr. Thomas H. Coffield Dead
Ball at Windsor
Thursday of last week, tfie Boy
Scouts played ball at Windsor
with the Scouts at that place.
J. A. Woolard carried the team
to the ferry in a gas boat, and
there autos were waiting to con
vey them to Windsor. Rooms
had been engaged for them at the
Hotel Pearl and Rev. W. R. Noe,
leader of Scouts, gave them a
hearty welcome. At 2:30 the
game was called with Thrower
and £|mith as battery for William
ston. For five innings the visi
tors had things their own way-
Windsor not scoring. But after
awhile this turned, and in the
Bth. Thrower seemingly decided
that Windsor should have every
thing, so weakened and gave
twelve men bases. It is confi
dently thought that he heard so
many siren voices rooting against
him that he failed to hold himself
in check. Bullock pitched the
remainder of the game, which
stood at the ending 14 to 4 in
favor of Windsor.
The defeat was softened by the
gracious hospitality of those good
people across the river. They
just know how to treat visitors
over in that part of good old Ber
tie, and the time spent by the
Scouts was most pleasant and
they would not object to being
overwhelmed again just for the
opportunity of being the guests
of such delightful hosts. J. H.
Thrower had the Scouts
and gave a good report of them
while away. They were brought
back to the ferry on cars in time
to reach home just about dark,
defeated but not cast down as the
season has just begun.

Police Busy .
Saturday was a busy day here
in police circles, as more than a
half dozen violators of the law
were pulled up. Several white
men went to Everetts in the
morning loaded with mean wiskey
and after creating a disturbance
there, boarded the noon train for
a raid here. The porter on the
train had a disturbance with one
named Chesson, and broke his
hand striking Chesson. After
reaching here, they proceeded to
try to take the town and were
hauled up before Mayor Godwin
by Chief Edwards. If their
partners in meanness (blind ti
gers) had been brought in with
them, things might have looked
more satisfactory. This breed of
animals is more than active on
Saturdays and Sundays here.
Later Saturday afternoon, two
Eborn brothers (negroes) living
on the Wilson farm, had a dis
pute, and one attempted to shoot
the other, but the gun was knock
ed away and the load went into
the ground. It develops that the
negro who tried te shoot has
some trouble like fits, and is
thought not to be rational at
times. Since the scrape he has
been in bed with his jaws locked
so that even water could not be
fored down his throat.
The Baseball "Fan"
If you are interested ih the po
pular American game of baseball
no doubt you have read many
columns of "dope" about the star
players. But there is one indivi
dual, or rather a class of indivi
duals, you seldom hear about that
are very necessary to the success
of the game from a professional
standpoint. These are the "fans"
who help to make the game inter
esting for the spectator and often
miserable for the players. On
another page of this issue you
will find a good story of the
"fans" as they have been observ
ed by Hugh S. Fullerton, the
well-known baseball writter in
his travels around the big league
circuits. Whether you are a
"bug" or just a lover of clean
sports, you'll find this story worth
