Where this lost love was, I said.
Let tnere be forgetfulness
Leading me gently to unknown
And death’s dark quietness.
But there were my reaching arms
by day
And my hungry lips bv night.
And the crying silence of vanished
Each slow twilight
And so 1 said: where-love once wasj
Let there still be, like a knife. i
The piercing beauty of the olden j
To make strong my way ot life.

Hoey Is Termed Sir
Rupert By Enquirer
Yorkville Enquirer.
High encomlumse were given Judge
C. C. Featherstone of the South Car
olina circuit court this week by
Clyde R. Hoey, the eloquent, sue
cessful, eminent criminal lawyer or
Shelby. N. C., who was one of the
most prominent of the battery of
lawyers defending Rafe King in
both his trials.
He told North Carolina newspaper
men that Judge Featherstone was
eminently fair in rulings, judicial
in every word and action, and did
much to shorten the second trial by
keeping out trivial and repeated tes
timony—in fact praised the jurist
to the skies.
Tills from an attorney who had
fought so valiantly for his client
and then lost his ease in the jury
verdict is a rather extraordinary
compliment to any Judge, when vol
unteered after a trial.
But when it is remembered that
Attorney Hoey lives and is in politics
in North Carolina only, and seldom
comes Into the Palmetto state, cer
tainly does not expect to have an
other case before Judge Feather
stone in his whole life, then the
compliment has a proved sincerity
as well as being in high terms and
being praised from Sir Rupert sc
that Judge Featherstone has a right
to feel good about It.

Senator Dwight < Mexico-Lindberghl
Morrow, New Jersey’s great wet hope
Mr. George DePriest, former post
master of Shelby, went over to Char
lotte the other day and talked Col
onel Mann and G. O. P. to anybody
who would listen. Mr. DePriest says
he thinks he'd like to affiliate him
self with Colonel Mann in saving
the South from Democracy.
“Senator Dwight Morrow is my
man,” said the postmaster who isn’t
any more. “We must have a man ot
his caliber for the nominee instead
of Hoover. Hoover could never get to i
first base again. He has slapped the
Republican party in the face since
he has been in office and has ap
pointed Democrats to innumerable
public appointive offices.”
A Lindbergh "wet” and a depres
sion “dry—what else do they have to
offer? If there are enough former
postmasters, the Republican con
vention may outdo the Democrats of
1924 with f house divided on going
to work with Morrow and coming

home with Hoover and a pint of
bathtub gin,
