One of Boys Caught by His
Brother in Attempt To
Robersonville, N. C., Oct. 20.
Roy Bland, one of the famous Reu
ben Bland tribe, and Dennis Whitaker,
young white boy, were arrested here
last week in the act of stealing gaso
line from the private tank of Mayor
C. M. Hurst. At a hearing held be
fore Judge Bailey in Williamston last
Tuesday the boys were offered their
freedom under bonds of S3OO. Unable
to raise that amount the two boys
art now in jail awaiting trial at the
December term of the Martin County
Missing gasoline from his tank almost
regularly and finding it difficult to
trap the thieves, Mayor Hurst left
Reuben Bland, jr., an employee of
the Robersonville Ice & Fuel Com
pany, on guard. About 10 o'clock
the two boys forced an entrance to
the ice plant, and siphoned out five
gallons of gaaoline and were making
ready to fill a second five-gallon can
when watchman Bland interrupted.
Upon learning that it was his own
brother playing the role of thief along
with Whitaker, Reuben, jr., entered
into a conversation with the two boys.
Coy told his brother that he stole
the gas and was going to carry it
away, that if he (Reuben) "turned,
him up" he would cut his thoat. Reu
ben informed the two that if they at
tempted to carry-the gasoline away
he would shoot them. The threat ap
parently made an impression upon the
erring boy, and as Reuben railed the
police the two boys ran and left the
gas. They were arrested later and
held for a hearing Tuesday, when
bond was fixed, but not raised.

Reuben Bland and his 34 children, but

I EXPECT RISE IN
NEXT FEW DAYS
Stream Likely To Overflow
Banks by Twelve To
Heavy rains throughout the Roan- |
oke Basin this weeft have effected a !
rise of *4O feet in the stream at Wel
don, indicating a big rise here about
the early part or middle of next week.
The exact rise expected at this point j
I could not be determined yesterday, as i
it was difficult to accurately guess the '
effect local rains had on the stream. I
A rise of one foot in Weldon "gen
erally means a rise of one inch in the
stream at this point.
Nearly two and one-half inches of
rainfall was reported here during the
first three days of the week Ordi
narily that much rainfall does not ef
fect a rise in the stream here, but the
clouds went up the river, filling the
basin as they went. The expected rise
w ill hardly put the waters outside the'
banks here, but should a second rise
follow, the stream is likely to cover |
the swamps and lowgrounds.
Acording to later information re
ceived here, a 12 or 13 foot rise in the
stream is expected at this point with
in the next week. Should the expect
ed rise increase materialize, the wa
ters will flood the lowgrounds and
| swamps from 1 foot to 18 inches,!

Keepers of cattle, hogs, and other
