"And I didn't get out", the deputy
laconically stated. Asked if he was
afraid to get out, the deputy stated
that he felt that if he did attempt
to get out there would be some shooting.
Ten minutes after Mr. Winslow
and Mr. Chalk drove off from the
station on the night in question seve

Bob Ivey's Service Station near New
Hope on the night of November 9
with the pistol in his hand, he was
unaware that the man who spoke to

been testified by Cook Winslow, and
also by Fred Chalk who was riding
with the deputy sheriff, that on the
night in question Mr. Winslow saw

The Pitt and Hines families appear
to be playing "Puss in the Corner",
but in this case each gains a corner
and nobody is left out.
W. H. Pitt has recently purchased
the Douglas home, which has been
for the past couple of years occupied
by Mr. and Mrs. R. N. Hines. The
Pitts expect to move into their new
home shortly, and the Hines family
have rented the apartment now oc
cupied by the Pitts in the residence
of Mrs. C. W. Morgan.

ty f armer, whp, may o may not be
long in ;the category of the careless,
probably feels that he has good cause
to be thankful that the money he lost
on Monday happened to fall into the
hands of an honest man. ;
Mr. Perry lost a .ten-dollar bill
while attending to some business in
the lobby of the Hertford Banking
Company on Monday morning. Nath
an Spivey, another Perquimans
farmer, happened to pick it up. Mr.
Spivey promptly "turned in the money
at the bank, -feeling reasonably sure
that the owner would come 'back , to
look for . it. Meantime, Mr. Perry
was out attending to other business
about town and he did not miss the
bill until he was some distance dp

probably led him back to the bank,
where he hoped he might be success
ful in recovering his money, and his
