THE PERQUIMANS WEEKLY, HERTFORD, N.'- C, FRIDAY, ' OCTOBER 25, 1935.
" HIT OR "MISS
Wi "D Buzaard" right, after
-all? ' m -
It will be remembered that "Dc
' Buzzard," alias C. A. Jordan, the be
whiskered and smooth tongued Negro
who operated' in Perquimans for a
brief period .last summer, collecting
silver coins to' boil so that one could
v bathe in the water and be relieved .of
sickness, pain, the drink habit, and
; what not, and whose little difficulties
as they were aired in U Recorder's
Court occassioned a lot of amuse
ment, was alleged to have made cer-
tain promises which it was believed
the pseudo-physician was unable to
is keep. ;yi..,
But hasn't he made good? .
"Dr. Buzzard" is alleged to have
told Pauline Ryan that he could get
her husband, Red Ryaii, out of jail.
Pauline, believing that he could, turn
ed over five dollars to ""Dr. Buzzard"
as a down payment on the bill for
services to be rendered. "Dr. Buz
zard", it was claimed, said no jail
could hold him.
That Pauline got cold feet and told
the story to her husband after she
herself got locked up in jail about
another little matter, and Red told
tjbe officers about it, was the undo
ing of "Dr. Buzzard." Then it all
came out, about Sam Tillett, an hon
est and hard-working Negro, handfef
over bis hard-earned savings of $9.75
to be boiled so as to bring good luck.
He was to get the money back, and
"Dr. Buzzard" said it wouldn't be
hurt, that it would spends just as
good as ever after it was boiled.
Sam admitted that he really didn't
understand at the time whether he
was to wash in the water the silver
asboiled in, or whether "Dr. Buz-
rarer was to nave tne Data, cut
m, didn't see the money any more.
tsinetd Emma Lee, Leo Jones' wife,
V now ner baby didn't ever cry
'men "Dr. Buzzard" nicked her un.
she turned over her borrowed
ree dollars to be boiled so that Leo
wouldn't ever drink any more liquor.
And then Leo got drunker that next
Saturday night than he had ever
been before, Emma Lee said.
They gave him chickens, too, and
geese. He wanted to use the blood
for making medicine. Nothing was
said about what was to be done with
the chickens after the blood was
"sed. Presumably "Dr. Buzzzard" at-
I Attended to that.
The folks didn't get well of their
diseases, and the luck didn't change,
and Leo still got drunk, and it look
ed like Dr. Buzzard" was a fake.
Everybody in the courtroom laugh
ed when these tales and numerous
others were told, and the defendant
went to the roads for six months for
) practicing medicine without a license,
and he was held for probable cause
for Superior Court for obtaining
under false pretense.
That was last summer.
Red Ryan didn't stay in jail. Just
like "Dr. Buzzard" claimed he could,
he walked right out one night.
. And this week didn't "Dr. Buz
zard" himself walk right off from
; the prison camp?
Who says "Dr. Buzzard" hasn't

Why do we scry The New Ford V-8
What is new about it?
Of course, the newest engine in the
low-price car field is still the V-8 engine.
Since Ford made it available to all car
users (keeping it as economical as cars
with fewer cylinders) the Ford V-8 has
been the newest engine on the market
and remains the newest for 1936.
You may buy a car on minor "talking
points" some specially advertised fea
ture Vith the car thrown in" but, after
alL it is the engine you buy when you
buy a car. Hence we put the engine first.
Other new points about the car
make a long list.
Its lines are much more beautiful. The
hood is longer and sweeps forward over
the distinctive new radiator grille, giving
the car a length and grace that are
instantly impressive. The fenders are
larger, with a wide flare. Horns are con
cealed behind circular grilles beneath
the headlamps. New steel wheels.
Ford upholstery-. dways of sterling
quality and excellent taste is rich and
enduring. The appointments of the car
have a new touch of refinement There
is no question about the increased
beauty of the Ford V-8 for 1936.
In more practical matters, many
improvements have been made
Steering is made easier by a new steer
ing gear ratio. The cooling system cir
culates 512 gallons of water through a
new, larger radiator. Natural thermo

An engine has much to do with the
roominess of a car. Very much indeed.
