$600 REWARD!

Whereas, J. J. Laughinghouse, J. Bryan Grimes and Mrs. J. H. Saunders have sustained heavy losses by incendiary fires and other acts of lawlessness have been committed in

CHICOD TOWNSHIP,

And whereas it seems impossible to apprehend the criminals, we believe the welfare and property of the community demands that some action be taken to point out the author or authors of these repeated burnings in this locality and that some protection to property should be guaranteed our citizens by the county within whose jurisdiction all such matters belong, and whereas such: crimes remaining unpunished is a direct menace to law and order and imperils life. We, the

BOARD COMMISSIONERS OF PITT COUNTY,

Therefore, offer a reward of $200 for the conviction of person or persons who fired the property of J. J. Laughinghouse, and $200 reward for the conviction of person or persons who fired the Property of J. B. Grimes, and $200 reward for the conviction of person or persons who fired Property of Mrs. J H. Saunders.

Sec'ty.
