THE MATHEWS CASE.
The trial of Dr J B Matthews
last week for the murder of his wife
oh Dec 1st, 1905, resulted in a ver
dict of guilty of murder in the
sceond degree and Judge Ferguson
sentenced the defendant to twenty
years in the State prison. The case
was a sensational one. The extreme
depths to which one may be carried
by opiates was made clear. It appear
ed from the evidence that Matthews "
seduced his wife before marriage, Senator Simmons' speech in the
turning her feet from the paths ol j Senate on Tuesday of this week in
virtue. That after marriage both
vant or anyone ever heard her hus
band complain, and when husband
and wife were together they were
extremely affectionate. When it is
in evidence that it had come to the
knowlede of the husband more than
five years ago of his wife's amorous
relatives with other men, and no
objection and no disturbance were
made by him, we must conclude
there was a screw loose about him.
A perfectly sane man who had any
courage would have gone gunning
for the destroyer of the home, yet
there was clear evidence that he ad

declaring that he was praying for

threatened to take the life of his
wife. He must have been partially
insane but he knew enough to know
what he was doing and the verdict
is a victory for law and order; and it
is to be hoped that the supreme
court will not give a new trial, for
Matthews has "got off" light enough.

A duck, who had faithfully stuck
to business during the summer and
laid several dozen large fawn color

not appreciated. "See that old hen

not lain so many eggs as I have,
not so big, but she has books writ
ten about her and verses composed
in her honor, while no one says a
word about me." "The trouble
with you is." said a wise Buff Leg
horn cock that was standing near,
that you do not tell public what
you have done. You lay an egg

The bitter fight among k Republi
cans in this State is disgraceful. It

this sort of bitterness is disgraceful
to the State no matter who is en
gaged in it.
Mr Blackburn's last charge
against Mr Holton is that he offered
immuuity to DL Arey, a Salisbury
distiller, after his conviction,Jas
June, in Charlotte, provided Arey
would furnish evidence against reve
nue officers for corruption in office.
Mr Holton has answered the charge
in which he says that Woodson is a
man who asked what he could do
for Arey if such information was
furnished against revenue officers.
The district attorney says his re
ply to the lawyer was to furnish the
information and he, Holton, would
submit it to the Attorney-General
of the United States. Mr Holton's
answer to tne ctiarge nas been sent
were addicted to the morphine habit
and that for fifteen years the wife
has led a life of disloyalty to her
husband, that she became infatuated
with a young business man in
Greensboro and let him have $3,500
or more of money which she obtain
ed from her father's estate and he
used it in the establishment of a
factory at High Point. That she
was infatuated with other men and
for several years led an immoral life
with one or more railroad men.
That during all these years no ser-
behalf of the Railroad Rate Bill
without the appeal clause, was an
effort which shows what many have
contended for years, that he is one
the State's greatest lawyers. Mr
Simmons declares that the present
railroad charges are unjust and un
reasonable. The speech rings clear
and strong .

HAPPENINGS OF THE WEEK BRIEFLY TOLD.
In the North Carolina Bulletin,
published by the board of health,
there was recently an interesting
article on pure food. It is shown
that the use of sodium sulphite in
lertain fruits is dangerous. It is
also said that boric acid in meat is
injurious. The last Legislature
enacted a law requiring the com
missioners of Agriculture to pub
lish for two weeks in some local
news paper names of dealers found
selling adulterated or fraudelent
goods, and it is quite probable that
many men in different North Caro
lina towns will before long find
themsel ves held up to their custom
ers as swindlers and prisoners.

attention to the real character of

giving the results of elaborate experiments made
by and under the direction of the Department,
which show the great saving from baking at home,,
as compared with cost of buying at the bakers.
All bread, cake, biscuit, crullers, etc., are very much

made at home with Royal Baking Powder.
