Twice as Many Present as Last Year
Faculty Delighted With Prospect
For a Year's Work.
Reflector man went over to
Erst Carolina Teachers Training
school this morning to learn how the
is starting its second session.
He found President Wright and the
faculty Just delighted with the pros-
and all were as busy as could
be registering pupils and getting them
properly assigned. Today was de-
voted to registering the old students,
those who attended last year, and It
was gratifying to see so many of them
ready to take up their work again
Tomorrow is the day for registering
new students, a large number of whom
are also present and more coming in
by every train.
The regular school work will be-
gin Thursday morning, at which time
it is safe to that students will
be present. The number of
of rooms for hoarding students
has already reached to say nothing
of the local who will live in
town Instead of the dormitories. This
record, compared with the opening a
year ago the number was is
enough to make everybody rejoice at
the splendid growth of the school.
President Wright says he looks for-
ward to a year of fine work.
The faculty is composed as
Prof. Robt. H Wright, President.

the announcement was
his sermon Sunday
morning at Presbyterian church
by the pastor, Rev Ralph C Deal,
that he would tender his resignation
to the official board to take effect
November 1st. After the church
service a congregational meeting was
held at which Mr. Deal formally
made his resignation. Mr. Deal came
to the Kinston church in June 1907
and during his stay here has en-
himself to the not
only of his b-it of the
entire city, and the announcement
of his resignation will be learned
with regret throughout the
Free Press.
Mr. Deal also pastor of the
Presbyterian church In Greenville,
preaching here the first and third
Sundays in each The
here has no intimation as to
whether his resign in Kinston
will affect his Greenville pastorate,
but it is hoped that it will not. His
next appointment here is next Sunday.
He is very much admired by the
of Greenville and It is the wish
of all that he can continue to serve
the church hero .

Opens Fire on the Preacher Who
Proves Ready to Return In Kind
Both Bound Over to Court.
There was much excitement among
colored people here, Monday afternoon
over a shooting affair that was en-
gaged in between Herman Cherry, a
young colored man, and Rev. Martin
Butler, the pastor of the colored
Methodist church. The trouble grew
out of charges against the preacher
of wrong with a sister of Cherry.
Relatives of the girl for two or three
days have been on the track of the
preacher, had warned him that he
must leave town by a certain time, end
some of the preacher's sympathizers
had been guarding him at night
through fear that he might be attack-
It seems that Herman Cherry, the
of the girl, did not live here
but being advised of the trouble came
to Greenville Monday. Late in the
he was on Reade street, saw
Butler, the preacher, sitting in the
door at the home of Sherman Fore-
man. Cherry pulled out a gun and
began trying to use It on the preacher,
and the also drew a gun and
began firing it. Some say that Cher-
gun would not fire and others
say that it did. At. any rate there
were several shots fired but none of
struck anybody.
After the shooting Cherry came up
town and surrendered to the sheriff
and Butler was arrested a little later
and both of them were taken before

House and Jail.
The board of county commissioners
have purchased from Mr. W. L. Smith
the comer lot, known as the Blow
lot, adjoining the county property.
Having previously purchased the
former Masonic temple lot. the county
now owns half of the block on Third
street and running through from
Evans to Washington, making a full
acre. It is a splendid piece of prop-
affording ample room for both
the new court and jail with a
large lawn surrounding them. The
court house will have two fronts, one
on Evans street and the other on
Third, and the jail will be near the
northwest corner of the lot on Wash-
Surest That Be Located Near

Some of the property owners on
Washington and Second streets are
complaining at the decision of the
Board of County Commissioners and
the building committee to locate the
new jail n the northwest corner
of the county's lot, next to Washington
street. The ground of their complaint
is that the jail being located so near
to them will depreciate the value of
property for residence purposes.
They suggest that the Jail placed
in the rear of the court house near
the of the block, and not out
near the street.

Mr. L. L. who says he is a
buyer on the various warehouse floors
of North and South Carolina and
has written a lengthy article
to the Charleston News and Courier
protesting Against practice of buy-
tobacco privately in the country.
He concludes this- article as
ell the country buying stop;
let the planter, after his hard labor
of raising a crop, put that on the
market, open to all bidders where
there will be plenty of competition
for there will be an influx of buyers
when it is shown that the planters
are marketing their crops for the high-
est bidders on the warehouse floors,
and they will soon realize that in
past they have lost thousands of
by selling in the their
tobacco, and giving the
buyers a chance on their common
grades. The planters often abuse the
buyers, especially the so-called
for not giving more for
types, whereas, they are not
given a chance to buy their better
grades except through other channels.
Sell all your crops on the warehouse
floors at open sale,, and you will in
future not have cause to complain of
the price your tobacco yields per acre,
but the price will be inducement for
larger plantings, more attention to its
cultivation to raise good tobaccos. Put
on your thinking cap, digest what I
have suggested and try it for one sea-
son not to sell at the pack houses and
you will, as stated get 1-3 to
per cent, more for crops If you
do not stop this country buying and
selling at Home, and not giving the
buyers who are at these various
markets for the purpose of buying
these grades an opportunity to buy,
the buyers will each year grow less and
less, and eventually no tobacco of
consequence will be raised in South
Carolina, and all because the planters
will not embrace the opportunity for
realizing good prices on their crops.
It is better to grade these better cur-
I realize in some cases it is
difficult to get good graders. To those
that cannot grade their tobaccos,
I would suggest that, in packing their
leaves market, that they throw out
all burnt into a scrap pile.
Often a curing of pounds will
not contain pounds of these burnt
leaves, but by not. throwing out these
leaves you damage the looks of the
pile dollars per hundred. It would
well to throw aside your green
leaves, put them in a bulk in your
pack and let them remain until
you have sold all your well cured
tobacco, then offer your greenish pile,
and you will Hurt great improvement
In same.
Market all your crop at. the ware-
house, give all buyers an equal show-
let it go to the highest bidder.
If the sale is not to your satisfaction
you have the privilege to turn the
ticket and get an advance If possibly
and if this policy is adopted by the
planters and raisers of tobacco you
will see very active sales at all of the
principal tobacco markets in South
Carolina and you will at least real-

thrown away since yon have started
raising tobacco in this

young man with capital who Is looking
for a business opening finds it on the
farm. The farm offers him the
to exercise his executive ability
by managing broad acres and herds

use of his money and talents. There is

disappointment when an animal falls

greatest of all is the Joy of success
when the breeder's efforts are crowned
with an animal a little nearer
than has been produced before.
The man who can see such an animal
march out of a crowded show ring
with the purple ribbon without a feel-
that at least in a measure ho has

are indeed hard to satisfy. The pure

farm itself is by no means Impossible,
even in the most fertile sections of the
corn belt.
Hundreds of farmers are looking for
managers for farms that vary In size
and equipment to suit the fancy of
any one. This line offers some of the
greatest opportunities to the young
man without capital. The salaries at
first may seem small as compared with
some of those offered In the city. Usu-
ally they include board and

chance to lay up money on the farm
at a month than in the city at
twice that amount. For the man who
can the first year's salary
Is hardly an Indication of what Is to
follow. Most landowners are willing
to advance the salary as fast as the
manager shows his ability. Better yet,
they ore willing to more of the
responsibility to his and to give
him more capital, so that he can
achieve greater results. In most cases
after a man has shown what be is
worth it Is easy for him to got a share
of the net profits In addition to bis
salary. In many cases It is easy to get

case the manager is as as
If he owned the farm, the chances
for financial success are nearly as
The great advantage of a position of
this kind or, In fact, of any kind of
farm work is that there are so many
chances to invest money as fast as it
is made.
The man on the farm has a dozen
places to invest every dollar. This in
itself is a big incentive to saving,
saving means prosperity for both the
individual and the nation. The invest-
which offers the greatest return
is farm land. Even In those localities
where laud is now worth considerably
more than an acre the limit
is yet far from being reached. There
Is little chance to lose money on land
provided it is wisely invested. It is the
lack of knowledge of what constitutes
a good farm that makes land an
safe investment for the city man.
There may be some land
agents, but unfortunately l hey have no
trademark to distinguish them from
the other variety. To buy land with-
out seeing it is a painless way of part-
with hard money. As for
the promised profits, they usually find
their way to the pockets of- the land

The stories of some of the young

result they are more independent and

occasions of the season. The lawn
had been beautifully decorated with
the national colors. Japanese lanterns
of the most artistic shapes and colors
hung in nook and corner, shed-

about. Rugs were scattered here and
there on the soft carpet of grass, while
palms and flowers were so arranged
as to make the beauty of the situation
more complete and make the whole
appear like a well designed hanging
garden. However, on account of the
threatening weather, the chairs and

Water on the Farm.
The Carolina Union Farmer is
the farmers to equip their homes
with water-works. Some of the
Mecklenburg farmers have already
done but The Union Farmer tells
how, by a co-operative system, the
work can be accomplished so cheaply
that almost every farmer can afford It.
In explaining its plan It says that a
well-boring machine can be bought
for four or five dollars. Ten
men in a local union could put in
each and buy a well-boring machine,
and after you get the machine you can
bore wells at an cost of about
seven cents a foot, and at that price
you can afford to have more than one
well on your place. With a two-inch
tubular well or a hundred feet deep
you can get pure water and there will
be no typhoid germs in it. Then you
can erect a tank and with a two-
horsepower gasoline engine you can
pump water into the tank, and thus
have a supply of water ready at all
times to turn In through pipes to your
residence and barns. But it would,
perhaps, be better to expend for
a five-horsepower engine so that you
can have power enough to also run
your wood-saw, feed-cutter, grind-
stone, churn, etc. These home
can be had at comparatively
small cost if farmers can get several
members of their local union to co-
operate with you. It is a good idea
and one worth

It is five years since Tom Dixon

He drew his inspiration from Virginia

far more startling than Clans-

Sins of the
weaves a fascinating love story with
its emotional scenes, while
the comic characters and situations
are in Mr. Dixon's funniest vein. He
will bring a fine acting company
from New York to interpret
play. The Wednesday night perform-
will prove specially interesting,
being a real first
