' Chapter Four
Peggy had never visited this part
1 of the city before, and the houses
on McCpmb Street looked all alike;
' they were rather pretentious, with
jutting brick, facades, lace-draped
' windows and potted plants. Masking
her inner excitement with an as
sumed calmness, Peggy walked up
the steps of Number 25 and rang
the bell. The door was opened by a
hard-featured woman or middle
' years. '"'.' - -
"What do you want?" she asked,
starine at the eirl.
"Why, I have an appointment at
three o'clock," replied Peggy. "It's
Willi f linowui uuuuvt iouui
The woman gave her an odd and
singularly unpleasant half-smile.
Then she opened the door further
and beckoned the way inside. Peggy
was escorted through a dimly light
ed alcove into a small room out
fitted with several fortune-reading
devices, and a number of colored
wall prints. Then the woman ex
cused herself, drawing the curtains
behind her. In a few minutes a ser
vant girl came in, bringing some
tea and cakes. She seemed startled
by something about Peggy's ap
pearance and, in a hoarse whisper,
asked her what she was doing
"I'm waiting for a gentleman," re
"You don't belong here!" urged
the girl. "Get out as quick as you
At that moment the front door
bell rang, and the woman upstairs
called out to the maid to answer.
Peggy caught the sound of a mss-

The carriage was -feomlngr from
the dlreotion of McComb Street,
and Sunderland suspected what had ;
transpired. He wiped his brow as
he considered the dilemma that
would have confronted him had he
been more prompt. Then he quickly
thought of a way to handle the ait-1
uation from that point on.
Lying: on her bed, on the verge 1
of tears, Peggy became aware of a :
slight sound at the door. A note was '
being pushed underneath. Hurried-1
ly she picked it up, to read the fol- j
"JbTv conscience as a gentleman
laesvous. Marriage, my beloved, is
the one tender proof of my ajjec-.
tion. I will await vow with a car-1
rifles in the black lane at eight ',
tonight. Do not disappoint me." t
During the hours that intervened
before nightfall Peggy gave up all
thought of responding to this secret i
message. But when eight o'clock ar
rived she could not resist the temp
tation of turning back the curtains !
in. her room and peering out. Sun
derland, as he had promised, was
waiting with his carriage in the
outer lane. He caught sight of her ,
and signalled that eho should open
the window. '
"I'm con-y," Peggy called to him,
v.rhen r.y.r, hsd done so. "This ia im
possible." "I must see you, if only for a
second," begged Sunderland. '
Peggy hesitated. Then she decided
that it might be a courteous thins 1
to bid him good-by. At the lower ;
stairs she hesitated again. No one ,
was about but of course it was
"Peggy, come with me," breathed ,
Sunderland, when she emerged.
"You "won't be sorry."
"Please!" she replied, pulling her
hand away. "I must go right back." ;
"You won't go anywhere without ,
me!" answered Sunderland, in a '
new and threatening tone.
Roughly he seized the girl, who
in point of physical strength was no 1
match for him. She was able to
cry out only once, but It was enough
to center the attention of Cree on '
what was happening. He had ob
served the waiting vehicle before,
ana now ne lum
bered out from

the lane. There
, was no time to
alarm. All he
could do was
; rush at the in-

There was just time for Sunderland
to make a bolt for his carriage,
tck up the reins, and dash away
lto the night.
' While those- behind comforted
Peggy and held a council of war
to determine what should be done,
Sunderland brooded revenge. He
reached a grog shop- la the central
part of town and Invented a quick
lie for the benefit of the patrone.
A dangerous biack at the Franklin
Inn had fallen on him treacherous

wound, still bleeding. . J v..
The Professor became a center of

barred. Someone produced a log for

Peggy had been taken to her '
room, but when she heard the blood

thought was for Cree's safety. He
had defended her; now they were
seeking him. Seizing the only wea
pon she could find, a fish-gid, she
rushed to the slave quarters.
Andrew Jackson, his eyes like
raging flames, rushed from the
front door brandishing two guns."
John Randolph was not far behind
him, and most of the other lodgers
at the Inn, armed with sticks or
whips, followed after.

towers of strength, but they were '

New York. Changes in the "age.
distribution" of the population that
are occurring as the immigrant por
tion ages soon will present a "new
challenge to American business
management, Dr. Robert E. Chad
dock, professor of statistics in Co
lumbia university, asserted.
Declaring that older persons are
increasing numerically in propor-r
tion to the rest of the population
Dr. Chaddock estimated that the
number of those over sixty-five
years old, now about 6,500,000, will
be trebled in fifty years. With the
populatibn approaching a stationary
level, he asserted, the general death
rate soon will begin to rise.
Burden of Aged Grows
"The period of youth in our in
dustrial organization is passing and
our economic structure must be
adapted to age changes," he wrote.
"Institutions and agencies for the
care of the aged, the burden of old
age pensions and the costs of de
pendency will increase rapidly. .
"The increasing burden of the
aged upon the productive workers
need not affect adversely the stand
ard of living, because the propor
tion of persons in the productive
ages, twenty to sixty-four, is not
decreasing and the burden of sup
port for the young dependent group
Adaptation of the industrial struc
ture to employ the ever increasing
number of older workers, forty-five
to sixty-four; will be necessary if
the high American standard of liv
ing is to be maintained, Dr. Chad
dock declared., ptherwise, an in
creasing number, may become semi
dependent, he warned, thus increas
ing the total burden of support rest
ing upon the productive workers.
Aged in Industry
Due to the restriction of immi
gration and to the aging of the
foreign-born here, the percentage
of those who immigrated to this
country and are now over sixty-five
is twice as great as that of the
native Americans over sixty-five,
Dr. Chaddock observed.
The. net result of all population
changes, he wrote, is a steadily de
clining proportion of persons under
twenty and a corresponding in
crease of those over forty-five.
There is little change in the propor
tion of the productive group, twenty
to forty-four, the survey noted.
Discussing the sex composition of
the population, Dr." Chaddock said,
that the trend is toward numerical
equality of the sexes among whites.'
He noted that the proportion of
people : twenty to sixty-four years
old is much greater in the cities
than in the country. In the rural
districts the number of children hi
proportion to the entire population
was found greater than in the urban

Increase Reported In
-Farm Income For 1935
The gross income of North Caro
lina farmers in 1935 was $305,122,
000.00, according to figures supplied
Dean I. 0. Schaub, of State College,
by the U. S. Department of Agricul
ture. " - ,xt
The figure includes : benefit pay
ments distributed by the AAA and
the value of commodities produced
for consumption on the farm.'
Cash; income from .' the sale of
farm products amounted to $217,
475,000. AAA benefit payments of
$12,293,000 swelled the total cash in
come to $229,768,000.
Farm commodities 1 consumed on
the farm were conservatively valued
at $75,854,000, the dean stated.
By way of comparison, he said
that the 1934 gross income was
$299,075,000, of which , $219,279,
was derived, from the Bale of crops
and livestock and $17,314,000 ' from
AAA payments. Products consumed
at home were valued at $62,482,000.
- For both Vars the " 'cash income
d quarter of a century of
price field, the first showink of the New
irom tne sale oi iarm proaucw was
based on returns from 78 crop and
. n l , 1 j ' "..'Vi - 1
ia iivesiocK items. .
The dean pointed out that although
the AAA payments were considerawy
larger in 1934 than in 1935, and thft.
income from cash sales was some
what larger, the value of commodi
ties produced for home consumption
rose from $62,482,000 in 1934 to $75,
354,000 in 1935.
The greater value of home-consumed
products in 1935 was more
than enough to offset .the slight de
crease in cash income, with, the re
sult that the gross income ragreased
by $6,047,000. ; w
All this indicates the trend away
from the production of cash crops
and toward the production of those
things needed on the farm and by
the farm family, the dean stated.
In other words, farmers are bal
ancing their farmine nroerams and
becoming more self-sufficient. f :
