*" As yet little or nothing of gen
eral importance has been done by
the Legislature. It's too «x>n in
the session for real work, but thi
grists are no doubt being prepared,
-for it is noticed from the daily press
that' 'a large number of bills are
being poured into the hopper."
In another week or so something of
interest will begin to transpire, but
the public generally are trusting
that our legislators will be temperate
and conservative in whatever they
may do and that nothing may be
done that will impair the progress of
the State. Every proposition should
be scrupulously considered before
*1 being enacted into law. Experi
ments should be let severely alone.
Mr. Munsey, who owns a half doz
; en daily papers and as many maga
zines, knows a good thing when he
sees it. It takes talent to run his pub
lications and he takes it wherever he
can get it. Lately he has secured
Mr. Robert L. Gray, of Raleigh, one
of the State's brightest newspaper
men, for the Baltimore News at a
very flattering salary.
When Gov. Kitchin appointed Mr.
R. R Clark, the editor, and proper
ietor of the State's best semi-weekly
newspaper, The Landmark of
Stateaville, a director of the State
Hospital at Morganton, he made no
mistake. He succeeds Chas. H.
■ Aymfield, deceased.
The Chinaman, though not natur
ally a fighter, knows how to hit to

has reduced exports from this coun

Washington, D. C., Jan. 9, 1911.
With the exception of the death
of Senator Elkins of West Vir
ginia no eveht of very great im
portance has occurred in Wash
ington since the adjournment of
Congress. The death of Mr Elkins
makes it certan that there twill be
two Democrat Senators from his
State. Senator Scott of West Vir
ginia will be succded by a Demo
crat, and the legislature being
Democrat will elect a Senator of
that party to succeed Senator
Elkins. The late Senator was one
of the wealthiest of what has
been cal'ed the "American House
of Millionaires." His death is gen
erally explained in the press as
caused by over work at the late
Congresional session, but anyone
at all familiar with the facts will
not be slow to attribute his illness
to high living. He no doubt had a
powerful constitution, but no
constitution can forever with
stand a perpetual banquet.
The President has announced
that he wiil not take the initia
tive in bringing together in holy
accord the belligerent wings of
the Republican party known as
the stand patters and the insur
gents. He says that hew ill address
himself the business of the coun
try and leave any peace making,
program to the contending parties.
When it was announced some
days ago that Senator elect Lori
mer had been given a clean bill
of morals with reference to his
election as Senator, there were
many who said, "How will Col.
Roosevelt feel now for refusing to
sit at table with him and having
the refusal published over the
world" but now that the Senate
has refused to approve the clean
bill prepared by Senator Bur
roughs and others and proposes
to take up the matter again, it Is
quite possible after all that his
tory will justify Ex-President
If appearances are to be trust
ed, something will ba done at
this session of Congress to pro
ven" the influx of undesirbles
people from Europe. Surely if
there is any choice in undesirbles
the Asiatics by way of the Paci
fic are less vicious than some who
have been recentley coming across
the Atlantic. A deputation of
American newspapers numbering
thirty-two called on President
Taft to protest against the hard-,
ships encountered by immigrants
landing in this country. Their
spokesman, Louis Hammerling,
told the President that they ob-.
jected to the suspicion with which
immigration officers looked upon
those arriving in this country.
Pres. Taft told them that he went
last Fall to Ellis Island and re
mained there during the forenoon
listening to the cases presented to
the immigration commissioners
and once or twice, moved by com
passion, he intervened in behalf
of immigrants whom the commis
sioner would have turned back,
and that be had sinoe followed
those cases in which he had been
influenced against his better judg
ment, but that he had to make
the humiliating confession that
the outcome vindlcted the com
missioner and showed that his ex
perience was better than the
Apropos of the immigrant ques
tion, the, fact that the attorney
general is proceeding against the
international steam ship lines un

well kftown fact that they carry

places during the ten years.
In point of increase in popula

with a 274 per cent, increase.
Durham follows closely behind
with 273 per cent., and High
Point shows a 228 per cent. gain.
The larger cities rank as follows
in percentage of increase: Char

THE DRAGON'S BACKBONE.
Aii'Odd Inoldent of Railroad Construc
tion in China.
When there was undertaken the con
struction of tbe railway between Klrln
and Newcbwang, tbe seaport of Man
churia. It was proposed to make a
junction at a place called Lanpien, out
side tbe city of Mukden. For this per
mission bad to be obtained from the
Tartar general of Mukden. This func
tionary at once proceeded to call In his
geomancers, a species of soothsayers, j
who gave information concerning the
good fortune and 111 fortune of sites
and were supposed by tbe Chinese to '
know what demons and dragons in
habited the earth nnder the surface. I
These wlsiß men reported that the |
dragon whose body encircled the holy
city of Mukden lay coiled up In such a i
way that If the railway came through |
Lanpien the long nails driven Into the
ties would pierce bis backbone and In |
all probability set bim to raging vlo-1
lently, jo the great detriment of the !
people of Mukden..
The general consequently refused the '
application of tbe railway people and
directed them to carry the road In a
straight line from Klrln to New- |
chwang, avoiding Mukden. The en- j
glneers thereupon appealed to the vice
roy, showing that, as this proposed
route would go through a marshy and
uninhabited country, It could not be
profitable for their enterprise.
The viceroy wrote to the general of'
Mukden, highly commending him for
his discretion in consulting the geo
mancers, but suggesting that these
sage persons go over tbe ground again
and see if tbey could not find a place
where the nails would not be likely to
strike into the dragon's back. Accord-1
lngly, at the command of the viceroy, j
the general bad hla geomancers indi
cate a spot for the Junction at Lanpien
where they thought after all, the
dragon's backbone would be safe.—

Many Graham People Have
When the kidneys are sick they ,
give unmistakable warnings that i
should not be ignored. By exam
ining the urine and treating the .
kidneys upon the first sign of !
disorder, many days of suffering \
may be saved. Sick kidneys ex- ,
pel a dark, ill-smelling urine, full ,
of "brickdust" sedimentand pain- j

cause a dull pain in the small of
the back, headaches, dizzy spells, ,

When a Tree is Wounded.
• Discussing protection for tree
wounds one Farmer's ( Bulletin
says nothing applied to the sur
face of a wound made in pruning
a tree will induce it to heal more
quickley. The activity of the heal
ing process depends upon the
character and position the
I time of year when the wound is
I made, rather than upon any pro
. Large wouqds which result from
] the removal of branches of con
siderable diameter, leaving a large
j surface of barewood exposed,
' may with advantage be protected
by painting the cut surface with
| a heavy coat of white lead, the
j sole object of this precaution be-
I ing to protect the heartwood from
decay until the new growth, which
forms from the growing tissue
■ immediately under the bark, has
had time to develop over the ex
posure, A large number of waxes,
paints and washes have been tried
I and the conclusion of the whole
matter may be summarized in the
statement that auy substance
. which is not corrosive or detrimen
ts to growth, which will protect
the heartwood from the attack of
I rot sprouts, will prove a satisfac
| tory covering for a cut surface.
Among such substances may be
mentioned white lead, yellow
ochre, coal tar, and graftig wax.
Prof. A. D. Selby, botanist at
Ohio Experiment Station, recom
mends asphaltum as a dressing
for wounds made in pruning. Gas
tar is also recommended and
either, he says, is better than
ordinary lead paint.

the system. Rheumatism Is an inter

remedy. Rubbing with oils and lini
ments may ease the pain, but they will
no more cure rheumatism than paint
will change the fiber of rotten wood.

complete cure called Rheumaclde. Test

marvelous cures. Rheumaclde removes
