Pig To The Home of
Jim Nelson For Safe
Silas Knight and Jim Nelson were
yesterday released from the custody
of Constable Whichard, after they had
given bond, charged with stealing a
pig. It was alleged that Knight stole
the pig and took It to the home of
Nelson where was retained for what
was to be presumed, fattening
The pig was stolen from the homo
of Mr. W. W. Bullock several nights
ago and how he learned that Knight
was the one that stole it could not be
learned. However, Monday papers
were given Constable who
set out at once in search of Kn
and the pig.
When Knight had been taken, was
found that the pig was being held at
the home of Nelson several miles dis-
To that place the constable
journeyed in search of Mr. Pig and
there he found him.
Nelson, in the meantime, learning
that the game was spoiled and that he
and his accomplice had lost a good
lot of pork, Journeyed to Greenville
and told how all happened, Is
The pig will be held by the officers
of the law until final ownership Is
established and it has been settled
whether or not Knight stole the pig
and left it with Nelson.
Constable Whichard state that the
pig was a fine and that he
does not blame a man for hating to
lose such a fine porker especially when
everything In the meat line Is selling
at such a high figure.

November Is past, and November

Summer Schools and Teachers

to teach in tho Moonlight
schools of the state for three nights
a week for four consecutive weeks.
This was to be known as Moonlight
School Month. The North Carolina
Press Association promised to give
publicity to the movement. The Jun-
Order of American Mechanics, The
Union and the Federation of
Women's clubs all agreed to lend their
support to the promotion of opening
the schools for a month to adults who
had been denied an early chance. No-
was the month set aside by the
State Board of Education for this

of Education explaining the plan

about three weeks ago began work in

heard her here.
Close Successful Term
The fall term examinations of WIn-

morning and continue through Wed-
at which time tho fall
closes. This closes one of the most
successful terms In the history of o
school The spring term will begin
Tuesday, January prospects are
good for the spring term
In some cases the county papers also
ran the lessons, three each
week so that the student as. he learned
to read would have supplementary
material at hand in an account of
affairs about him.
The State Department of Education
suggested In Its bulletin that each
county superintendent of schools, tho
farm demonstration agents, the
or president of the Farmers
Union, the mayor of the county seat,
and representatives from the Junior
Order and Women's clubs. The ob-
of this committee was to
late and work out plans or appoint
other committees when necessary. In
some counties whore successful moon-
light have been held the town
and county plans have been worked
out together, the town superintendent
working with the county superintend-
In other counties the town has
had another, each working for moon-
light schools. Whatever the plans
were moonlight schools have been
taught successfully and are still
taught. A nearby town Is planning to
begin the year 1916 with a moonlight
school month. Every town and every
community should have a committee
working on this problem for many who
can barely read write would be
glad of the additional Instruction to be

as well pleased with the outcome and
had voiced the hope that would

Ii Is said in reliable quarters, that
other townships are going to begin an
agitation for the Issuance of bonds
for the purpose of building better
roads and to Improve those that they
now have.

if they will call at the office of the
Clerk of the Court, for they will find
a check there waiting for them.
The checks for the war pensioners
were received this morning, and
total amount that will be paid out in
Pitt county this year Is which
will be divided up among fifty-seven
widows of war veterans and sixty-
veterans themselves. The clerk
is asking that all those who receive
pensions call at the office at the ear-
opportunity and get It.
There are widows In county
who are in the fourth on the pen-
list. One soldier the third
class, and sixty-seven who are in the
fourth class. These receive amounts
according to their class.
It is a usual occurrence that
checks for the veterans arrive
just before Christmas, and they are
ways highly appreciated.
It Is a little astonishing to some, it Is
supposed, to loam that the State Is
annually paying back into this
over four thousand dollars for the
purpose of helping those who fought
In the Civil War and their widows, but
it is nevertheless true.

of the township, was endorsed by the
board and the election ordered by the
board of county commissioners with-
out any hesitancy. This is perhaps
the most Important educational move-
yet undertaken in Pitt county.
It Is in line with the trend of the
times in educational matters, which
is to extend the benefits of the large
well graded schools to tie rural dis-
If this election carries, as It seems
that it will, one school will displace
the four schools now operated in this
township. This will give a district
with a census of children, and
will require probably about five or six
teachers. Tills will enable the school
to be graded and will make it possible
for the teachers to give the children
that individual attention that is so
necessary. It will also make possible,
work in agriculture, domestic science
and music.
There are at present in this town-
ship one school employing one teach-
and three employing two teachers.

three to seven grades and from fifteen
to thirty-five classes per day. The In-

A special from Washington to the
Greensboro News Monday states that
there is a likelihood of there being
a determined effort made on the part
of the Democrats to oust Col. J. Bryan
Grimes, Secretary of State, and Treas-
B. Lacy from their jobs on the
grounds that it is not good policy for
the Democratic administration to let
one man hold an office for such a long
length of time.
Col. Grimes has been Secret of
State for about sixteen years while
Treasury Lacy has occupied his Job
for practically the same length of
time. Both, it is said, have performed
their duties in office to the entire
faction of the whole State, and their
adherents in Eastern Carolina are
to regard the rumor from Wash-
as unfounded.
