The Tarboro Guide tells of a novel plan Mr. H.D. Telle, of Edgecombe, has struck on to secure and control labor. He contends that there is not enough amusement for the laboring class, and will in a short time erect a dance hall at his farm 90 feet long. It will be located over Cabin Branch, and once a month he proposes to furnish them with music and lemonade.
