Negro Is Found
Dead; Had Been
Missing 6 Days
67-Year-Old Man of Free
Union Section Dies
of Exposure
John Henry Boston, 87-year-old col
ored man of the Free Union section,
vfas found dead yesterday afternoon
MP the woods about a mile from his
kaue, after an absence of 6 days.
Last Tuesday morning Boston left
the home of his half-sister before
breakfast He was last aeen at Luther
Cordon's store about 9 o'clock of the
same day. Nobody paid any atten
tion to his course from there, for he
known as a great wanderer. The day
passed and the heaviest snow in years
began to fall, but Boston's failure to
return caused little uneasiness in his
community. Wednesday afternoon in
, quiries were made after the old man,
but no one had seen or heard of him
• since he left Cordon's store Tuesday!
morning. A search in the deep snow >
was impossible, and it was not until
yesterday morning that the search in.
real earnest was started. His body,
in fair condition, was found at 6 o'-
clock by Sam Moore a half mile from
the road leading into the Free Union
section.
The body "'Was allowed to remair.
there until Deputy Coroner Henry
Taylor was notified and he had held
an inquest It was a dark and solemn
tide through mud, water, and woods
or. a /ail-bodied cart for Mr. Taylor
and his Jurors. It was pa.it 10 o'clock
when the spot where the dead man's
body rested was reached. An investi
gation was held there, and the jury
practically decided that the old man
had not encountered foul play, but
• haifc he, in some way and for a cause
knewn only to him, had wandered into
tht: woods and died from exposure.
Relative Refuse to Receive Body
The climax of the tragedy came
when the several friends of the dead
man carried his body to the home of
his half sister. There it was refused
admittance, and for a while it looked
as if the body would have to remain!
in the open until burial arrangements'
could be made. A vacant house, with'
the exception of a few corn shucks, I
a few hundred yards away was finally j
agreed upon as a place for the body j
tc await burial. The jury substan- 1
tiated its opinion after examining the
body as it lay on the dirty floor of the 1
two-room hut and rendered a verdict'
holding that John Henry Boston died j
from exposure and that there was no
evidence of foul play.
Boston for a number of years work- j
ed at the fisheries at Jamesville. His
life has been marked mostly by
downs, and his death cam-) about ac
cording to his own wishes. He had |
expressed many times during the pa.st
few years that he did not want to be
buried, that he wanted to die in the
woods where the birds of the air could,
come down and carry away his body.

Hamilton Loses to
Oak City, 17 to 12
. Oak City, March 7.—Oak City de
feated Hamilton Friday night on the
Everetta court by a score of 17 to 12.
The game was warmly contested
throughout and was remarkably clean.
Both teams played to the finish with
out substitutions.
Scoring honors for both teams were
quite evenly distributed; both outfits
depending upon team play rather than
individual stars. Hamilton was never
in the lead, but was continually
threatening.

Board Health
Met Yesterday
Plan to Ask State Board
for Dental Clinic for
Martin County
The Mmrtin County Board of Health
met here yesterday with the follow
ing members present, J. G. Barnhill,
R. A. Pope and Mayor R. I* Cobum,
Dit>. J. E. Smithwick, of Jamesville
and Vernon Ward, of RobersonviUe,
not being able to attend.
The. Board is planning a more ac
tive work in it* field and several un
dertakings in the way of bettering
health conditions throughout the
county will be put under way. An
application is to be made to the State
asking that it send one of its dentists
to the county to examine and treat all
the school children. Should the State
agree to meet the request, and it iH
likely that it will, all the children
will be examined and in those cases
where the children are willing and
need treatment it will be given.
The clerk to th«> Board is to write
all the mayors of all-the town* of
the county asking them to gee the
commissioners of their towns and re
quest that they prohibit the dumping
of tin cans, old automobile* and other
trash within the incorporated limits
of the towns. The letter la also car
rying a request that will result in
better enforcement of the sanitary
laws of the State.
Medicine for the inmates at the
County Home is to be supplied
through the county health officer in
stead of going there direct. A more
complete report on the several
diseases will be required by the Board
in the future.
Dr. W. E. Warren, County Health
efflcer, met with the Board and re
viewed the work of the pa»t several
months and outlined a possible pro
gram of the work to be carried on
in the future.
Perquimans Wants to
Board Its Poor Here
According to information corr.lno
from the Martin County Board of
Health, Perquimans County is working
on a plan to get this county to care
for the inmates of that county. A
statement made by the health officer
of Perquimans says that his county
would pay liberally for the case of the
inmatec of that section.
It ia understood that the coramin
sioners of Perquimans County investi
gated the matter at its meeting yes
terday. The question has not come be
fore oar board, but should the prob
lem be solved favorably by the Per
quiman's board it will be submitted
to Martin's commissioners at the ear
liest date possible.
Perquimans County has only 10 in
mates, and the combining of the two
counties' poor would affect a saving to
both, according to the investigations
of the health officers of the two gov
ernment*.

superintendent of schools ahow poor
attendance for soma of our schools
and good attendance for others. The
compulsory attendance law is misun
derstood by teachers and parents a
like in certain districts, it is to dis
abuse this misunderstanding that these
lines are written.
Children seven years old, having
reached their seventh birthday by Sep
tember 30, 1926, and at any time prior
to attaining their fourteenth birthday
are required to attend the school of
the district in which they reside for
all of the term in which the school
continues. Any failure of such chil
dren to so do is obliged to be repvrted
by the teacher in charge of said school
each Friday afternoon of the school
term under penalty of the law. Upon
receipt of such report and investiga
tion by the superintendent of public
welfare, same being verified, it be
comes the duty of such officer to pros

Commissioners
Met Yesterday
Defer Action on Returns
of Biggs School Dis
trict Election
The county commissioners hud their
smallest meeting of the year here yes
terday when the business coming be
fore them proved to be of minor im
portance. Outside the investigation
of bills, the work of the day was neg
ligible.
The matter of accepting or rejecting
the election returns of the special
school tax election in Higgs School
district on account of alleged irregu
larities, was deferred until a later
date. The result of the school elec
tion was submitted to the board ut its
last meeting, but the board failed to
uccept the returns when it was ru
mored that voters improperly regis
tered took part in the election. An
investigation was made, and it wax
learned that several of the votes cast
ir. the election were illegal. Just what
steps the board will now take in the
matter are unknown.
Celia Slade had a two dollar allow
ance increased to $4.
i». I'. Moore was refunds $2 pnll
tux improperly listed in Poplar Point
Township.
The official bond of S. R. Higgs,
coroner, was approved and accepted
by the board. The bond is in the sum
of $2,000.
A loan of $2,500 is to be made Mrs.
L. M. Brown, of Jamesville. The loan
is to come from the Interest and sink
ing fund and has a duration of five
years. A house and lot in the town
of Jamesville end the Modlin farm
will acrve as security after the titles
to the property and real estate have
been passed upon by the county at

Town Fathers
Hold Regular
Meet Monday
Defer Action in Matter
i of Special Tax Against i
Itinerant Merchants '
Ihe board of town com 111 issioners '
t held their regular monthly meeting at !
! thi mayor's office in the city hall last '
night. A number of minor matters
were taken up and discus&ed, but.
there was no business of major im
portance before the board. • Members
present wore Mayor Coburn, YV. T. I
Meadows, G. H. Harrison, and C. 0.
Moor*. ft. [.
Sam Faulk came before the board;
with a tax tangle to be unraveled, lie
was referred to the county- commis- j
sioners and the town board will take!
the same action taken by the county.
Mr. McCabe, of the Murray & Mc-
Cabe Lumber Co., appeared before the j
commissioners and asked that a wa-|
ter line be run to his mill and a lire
hydrant be located near the mill prem
ises. The matter was referred to the i
water committee, composed of Messrs.'
Moore, Harrison, anil Ilassell, and they '
were asked to get an estimate of the
cost and report back to the commis
sioners either at a call meeting or at
the next reKular meeting.
Mr. K. P. Cross, of Wilson, a rep
resentative of the Fairbanks-More Co.,
who sold the town the crude-oil en-1
pine at the light plant, was present !
al the meeting as a visitor and re-1
nowed his acquaintance with the com
missioners.
The next matter before the board 1
was one which has been hanging tire
for some time, and one that is cuus-1
ing the board mi mbers considerable
perplexity. That is the placing of a i
ta> on itinerant meri-hiahTs who come j
here during the busiest season of the
year and put on sale and thejt leave
town before time for listiii/ taxes,
comes around, Besides failing to con
tribute any revenue to the town, this'
type of competition is hardly fair to
the local merchants who do pay their,
taxes and wh(i have t( "cary on" dur-l
ing the dull season.
A meeting of the merchants of the
town was held with the mayor yester
day afternoon-to see if there was not
some possible way to make these out-!
side merchants pay at least a part of
the taxes justly due the town. Thei
mayor submitted a plan whereby a'
privilege tax should be placed on all
special sales here, anil then refund j
their general town taxes. Thus mer
chants who put on sales and remain j
in business long enough to pay their j
regular taxes would be refunded this
| privilege tax, while outsiders who
come here, put on a few days' or
weeks' sales and then leave would not
I receive this refund. -Some of the lo
cal merchants objected to this plan
because they did not feel that they
could advance the' amount of the tax
every time they had a sale and then
wait until they paid their general
taxes before getting it bafk. The
board did not take any action on the
matter last night, and things will more
than likely remain as they are until
the merchants here get together and
agree on some feasible plan. |
As a result of the county board of
health's action yesterday in condemn
ing the dumping of trash in the city
limits, an ordinance was passed mak
ing it a misdemeanor for any .person
to dump trash within the city limits.
A penalty of $lO or 10 days in jail is
provided for violators. This action
was taken principally on account of
the unsightly condition along some of
the main roads leading into town
where old automobiles, tin cans, and
other refuse and junk have been
dumped. Besides the ugliness, these
locations are the principal breeding
.places of mosquitoes.
Mr. Meadows brought up the sub-;
ject of the condition of the tax books,
likening them unto a "Chinese pyz
ble"—"-whatever that is. The possi
bility of the county securing a perma
nent auditor was discussed in this
connection; and if it does, the townj
commissioners will offer to pay for
hit* services for several days each
month .in keeping their tax and treas
urer'* books audited. %

Last Saturday
Luke, the 17-year-old son of Mr.

Spring section, near here, died yes
terday morning at 3.30 from a gun
shot wound.
Iast Saturday afternoon the boy
.took his gun and went for a hunt. Ho
was on his way home when the town
ship road tractors came along anil
Kooert llailey stopped the machine for
Luke to get on. The boy took a seat
on the fender of the tractor and placed
his gun in his lap. Within 300 yards
cf the Mizelle home, the tractor
snatched and caused the gun to fall.
''Little Luke," as he--was .generihiy
known, attempted to catch the gun,
uiid as he slipped from the big fender
the gun hit a step on,the tractor and
fired, the load cutting its way through
the boy's left arm and into his left
side.
The pain from the unsightly wound
caused the boy to complain but little.

Oak City Won Four of
Five ( ianu s This Season
•» V '
Oak City, March 7.—(Special to The
Enterprise.)— Oak City people gener
ally are quite disappointed on account
of the failure of the county basket
ball series to materialize. The for
mation of an independent schedule was
held up pending the announcement of
the official county series, and when
the matter was allowed to die a slow
death it was too late to arrange any
thing like a satisfactory slate. Only
five high-school games went on the
cafd, amf of these the Oak City quint
won four. Although it was quite well
understood that the real contest lay
between Jainesville and Everetts, the
other schools were not content to let
them win by default. It was largely
owing to the independent schedules of
the two leading teams that the county
series was frozen out, after it had
hem decided upon. Most IntmrstPrt
l> e/yers feel that a mistake was
made in not playing through the series
ni.il establishing a system by which
the county champions of future sea
sons could prove their mettle. This
would not have detracted in the least
from the honors that Jamesville and
Kveretts have brought to Martin coun
ty and Eastern Carolina.
