Dr. H. C. Moseley, of Farmville, Shot
and Killed When He Responds
to Message for Help
Dr. H. C. Moseley, of Farmville,
was shot and killed by a drunken ne
gro last night near that place, when
he stepped up on the porch of the
negro after receiving a summons aay
ing that some one was ill there.
•" At 7:80 Dr. Moseley was called on
a professional visit to Frank Frizzel,
a negro who lived a half mile from
Farmville on the Wilson road. When
Dr. Moseley reached the house he
weat to the front door, and was told
by Frizzell that that door was locked
and for him to come around to the
back door, which he did. As he was
going up the steps, Frizzell shot him
with a load of buck shot, tearing Into
th; lower part of his face and cutting
his neck almost half in two, killing
fiim practically instantly.
Mrs. Moseley, who had gone out
with her husband, and two men from
Wilson, who happened to be passing
at the time, rushed around the house,
and the negro leveled the gun at Mrs.
Moseley, but was prevented from
shooting her by the men, who took
her up and rushed her away. They
notified the officers, who in a few min
utes located the negro in a cornfield
and arrested him. He was rushed to
the State prison for safe keeping.
So far as is known, there was no
motive for the killing. The negro was
drunk and shot the doctor without
cause. Frizzell was a farmer and
considered a pretty good darkey, but
he would get drunk occasionally. He
is about 46 years old, and was on the
best of terms with Dr. Moseley.
Doctor Moseley was 36 years old
and originally from Kinston. He was
i.ot oily a good doctor but a real citi
zen of character and standing. He
married Miss Eunice Andrews, of Wil
mington, several years ago.
The funearl service was held today
by the pastor of the Christian church,
the Farmville Masonic Lodge, and the
Pitt County poat of the American Le
gion. His body was taken to Kinston
There seems to be universal regret
that so good and useful a man as Dr.
Moseley should ba slain while on a
mission to aid, by the vile hand that,
he was attempting to help; all be
cause the negro was just drunk.

A Financial Success
An itimixed report of the fiddlers'
cojtfvention has been mailed to the
president of the chamber of commerce.
The report carries the total receipts
from the convention at $406, and the
expenses at $299.25.
According to those in charge $362.40
was received at the door, the remain
der of the receipts coming from the
sale of sandwiches, Coca-cola, etc.
Tlie amount from the latter source fell
several dplUrs short of paying actual
expenses of the drink stand, sine® all
contestants were served free, and as
small a sum charged as was possible
The convention carflfed a very heavy
expense, but, as was stated, it was to
be put on on a large scale and this
boosted the expense considerably.

November 3 to 8. This is one
of the many hig free, acts being pre

It is beyond (piesHon of doubt the I
most uproariously side-splitting act,
ever presented, to - see the way in.
which they bump and fall is the surest
cure for the blues we have seen.
Hut the Randow Trio do not stop at
comedy. They arc also acrobats and j

so that both make a jterfect whole.
The lady of the trio displays a
strength remarkable for one of the
weaker sex, and her part is by no
means the least in the act.
It is a wonderful coniefly number,
one that merits the greatest praise.
