Ridpath says in his History of the ynited States: "On the 7th of October, white Ferguson and his men were encampedion the top of Kings' Mountain, they were suddenly attacked by a thousand riflemen led by Col. Campbell: the camp was surrounded: a desperate battle of an hour and a half ensued. Ferguson was slain, and three hundred of his men were killed or wounded: the remaining eight hundred threw down their arms, and begged for quarters. On the morning after the battle, ten of the leading Tory prisoners were condemned by a court martial, and --- Miss Mattie Moran, daughter of Mr. J. W. Moran, died very suddenly at her late home, five miles west of Columbia last Tuesday afternoon. She was apparently twenty-tw- o or twenty-thre- e -- years old, and was in this place, having been a saleslady in Casey Jones' Store for a number of months. She spent Monday night with her sister, Mrs Will Young, in this town. When she arose Tuesday morning she complained of feeling badly, and decided to go to her home. She came over in town, and to the residence of Mr, W. H. Wilson, and from that home her people were notified, and Dallas Stotts, a young son of Mr. W. L Stotts, came after her. It is reported that she told the boy, while en route to her home, that she would not live an hour. She reached her father's residence about the noon hour, dying a short time after her arwell-know- n rival. A physician was called as soon as The News desires to extend condolence to Col.

He was in no general engagement during this enlistment, but was 'in many scrimmages against the common en- emy. He again enlisted' under Capt. George Lambert, Col. Beaufqrd's regiment. Soon after this enlistment he was marched to Wilmington, where he was transferred to the wagon department, in which he served until he was honorably discharged at Wilmington.

His speech recently delivered at Brooklyn was almost incendiary in its nature. It breathed forth He threatening and slaughter. laughs to scorn an army of men as totally inadequate to meet, what he regards as necessary at this time in the affairs of the nation. He wants an army now equal and able to cope with the army of Germany. As he vigorously denounced President Wilson's policy of treating the Mexican situation there is but one reasonable conclusion to draw, that he favors sending the army of the United States into Mexico. In attack ing the administration in its dip lomatic dealing with Germany, " relative to the Lusitania, he carries by inference that the attitude of Germany is wholly distasteful to him, and that the loss of American lives, since he says they should not be counted in money, calls for a declaration of war on the part of the United States against Germany. If this country was aroused to :a state of intense indignation about the sinking of the Lusita-aii- a, like it was over the sinking of the Maine. If the cases were in anyway similar, Mr. Roosevelt would, in a few speeches like he delivered at Brooklyn, have the country ready to go to war with Germany and would precipitate -- .. n actual declaration of hostili- ties by the United States against the Central Power.

Barksdale Hamlett, who was defeated for ths office of Secretary of State, and who instituted contest proceedings, has withdrawn his suit, and Mr. Lewis, the Republican, who defeated him, will remain in his office undisturbed. While Hamlett is a Democrat, in our judgment he has run his everlasting race. Majority controls in political conventions sometimes, majority elects our officers sometimes. And it has been decided that a majority of the voters voting may bond and build. That's good so far as it goes getting the thing to go is the only trouble in Adair.

To take the Fortress of Verdun is one of the chief ambitions with which the German Crown Prince has been credited. The present effort under his command is on a scale that indicates the most de termined effort yet of his armies to break down the barriers with which the French have protect fed their stronghold ancf get with in striking distance of the for- tress itself. At last accounts the battle was still raging with great furry, both sides keeping up a continuous fire from all .available artillery and throwing masses of troops into the fray. Losses on each side have been extremely heavy. In the fighting during the second day of the great battle the Germans pushing their way at points two miles inside the former French lines, penetrating as far as the village of Haumot, less than eight miles from the fortress. The French claim to have held the approaches to the south of that village, however, checking the German advance there, as they did in the wood of Caures. East of the latter point, however, the German advance continued, their forces penetrating the Wavrille wood after desperate fighting. Elsewhere the German attack is claimed to have been arrested.
