GRAHAM, N. C.[ Jan. 12 1910. *" 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 hurt. For reasons of his own he has reduced exports from this coun try to his from 158,000,000 in 1905 to 115,500,000 in 1910. Such licks hurt, t n A constitutional convention is be ing agitated in the Legislature. Amendments may be desirable, but there should be none, unless those proposed be fully outlined before hand. Senator Elkins Dead. Senator Stephen B. Elkins, of Wen j Virginia, died Wednesday midnight at his home In Washing ton after a protracted illness. He wa» born in Ohio in 1841, studied law and was admitted to the bar in 1804 and lived for sev eral yean in New Mexico. He was elected to Congress from the Territory and served two terms Moved to West Virginia, was ap pointed Secretary of War in 1891 and served until 1893; was elected to the United States Senate in 1894 and served continuously since. Property comprising an entire bnsiness block and valued at sl,- 000,000 was destroyed by Are at Littlfe Rock, Ark., Tuesday, a week. The fire originated in the Hellenberg Musical Company's boilding. Two paintings valued at *60,000, "The Wagonsmith" and "Venus de Milo," were de stroyed.

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 Roosevelt's action, 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 President's compassion. Apropos of the immigrant ques tion, the, fact that the attorney general is proceeding against the international steam ship lines un der the Sherman law is vary signif icant and far reaching, The rea son Europe is scraped, as it were, with a fine tooth comb for the million or more of immigrants ' annually landing in this country is found to a great extent that ' steerage traffic is immensely prof itable to the great steam ship lines such as Loyds, the Hamburg- American the Cunard, the White Btar, the Holland-American and several other*. They make millions yearly in this traffic and it is a well kftown fact that they carry I \rge bodies of steerage passen gers both ways. At least half million are taken Eastward back to the "old country" every year. All the steam ship lines, have immigrant bureaus and traveling •gents using every means and in ducement to bring immigrants to this country. This is the season of war scares, promoted, it is said by some in order io get large appriatiens for the army and navy and for the contractors who furuish military supplies. There is a report that . Japanese govermeut has success fully negotiated with President Diaz of Mexico-for a port and a depot of supplies on the western coast. If there were trath in this it would be cause for immediate interference by the United Btatea government, OA«vorxa.

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.— New York Press. RICE PAPER. Shaved From the Bnow Whit* Pith of Troas In Formosa. The so called -rice paper Is not made from rice, as Its name Implies, but from tbe snow white pith of a small tree belonging to the genus aralla, a genus represented In this country by the common sarsaparilla and the spikenard. The tree grows In Formo sa and, so far as la known, nowhere else. The stems are transported to China, and there the rice paper la made. It la used, aside from a num ber of other purposes, by tbe hativs • artists top water color drawings, and sometimes it Is dyed In various colors and made Into artificial flowers. The tools of the pith worker com prise a smooth stone about a foot square and a large knife or hatchet with a short wooden handle. The blade Is about a foot long, two inches broad and nearly half an Inch thick at the back, and It is as sharp as a razor. Placing a piece of the cylindrical pith on the stone and his left hand on , the top, tbe pith worker will roll the pith backward and forward for a mo ment until he gets it in tbe required position. Then, seizing the knife with his right band, he will hold tbe edge of the blade after a feint or two close to the pltb, which be will keep rolling to the left with his left band until nothing remains to unroll, for the pith has, by tbe application of the knife, been pared into a square white sheet of uniform thickness. All that re mains to be done la to square the edges. If one will roll up a sheet of paper, lay It on a table, place the left band on top and gently unroll It to the left he will have a good Idea of bow the feat Is accomplished.—New York Her ald. - A Barnum Btory.

' Heed The Warning Many Graham People Have Done So. 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 ful iu passage.

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 tecting covering. . 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.
