In North Carolina.
In the HnhMtfh slate library Is un
IntorwitlNjr old vol u mo nnwuted by

A nobleman's new land agent and
steward, who went to live on tbe es

ho rodo over to tbe vlllugo nnd Inter

"Oh," excle lined the postmaster,

nineteen children, so they say, born to
a heritage of poverty and pluck. When
he was a small lad down In Texas he
fell Into the creek one day, and Mi
chael, the next younger brother, ran
whimpering to Littleton, the elder:
"Dad, dadt Martin Is drowning!" '
"Martin, Martini" repeated the father
of nineteen. Then he turned dubious
ly to hla wife.
"Norn," he Inquired anxiously, "have
