Laslev, down uear Saxapahaw, dropped in a few days ago and in talking with the editor, among other things spoke of the time "When the Niagara Falls ran dry." He asked us when it was. We did not remember to have ever heard of it. He volun teered to send us a paper giving an account of it. A few days later a bundle of papers came to us. In it was a copy of the Southern Presbyterian of the date of Oct. 4,1906, and contained the Niagara Falls article copied from the Young People. Also-in the bundle was a copy of the Alamance Qleaner upon which his name was written and bearing date of Janu ary 3,1881 —a paper that will soon be 39 years old. We have copies of all the issues of The Qleaner since May 19, 1880, and of some before that date. The article about Niagara Falls follows: In the early spring of 1818 oc curred a natural phenomenon so strange, so sudden, and so stu pendous thattheolder inhabitants of western New York still speak of it with awe and wonder. This phenomenon was nothing less than the running dry of Niagara Falls. The story is seldom recounted now, but it was a nine-days' won der for the whole couutry when it appeared in the newspapers. For the first time- in history the roar of the grandest contaract in America was hushed. In the early morning of March 31, 1848, peoplo living in the vicinity of the falls were awaken ed by a peculiar hush, as start ling in its suddenness and inten sity as the most thunderous ex plosion could have been. Many dressed and hastened outdoors, urged by a conviction that some thing appalling had happened, or was about to happen. Some thought the end of the world was at hand. Others imagined that they had grown suddenly deaf. Still others thought that the hush preceding a terrific hurricane had fallen upon the air. All were op pressed with a feeling of profound awo and dread. It wassooudiscovered, however, that the cessation of the roar of the falls was the sole cause of this common panic. As the dim light of early morning- stronger, the people were able to see the almost bare precipice of the falls, over which but a short time be fore thousands of tons of water had been pouiing. Only here and there small streams constantly growing smaller, now trickled down the face of the towering wall. Above the falls, instead of the rushing, foaming river, ouly a naked channel, studded with black and jagged rocks, appeared. The bed of the river was, prac tically, exposed from shore to shore, except for small streams, like mountain brooks, running slowly t.i the verge of the preci pice. The spectators could hardly believe their eyes. Some remarkable feats were per formed on that day when Niagara ran dry. People walked from the Canadian side of the river, along the edge of the frightful precipice, nearly as far as Goat Island on the American side, and never even wet their feet. Some went ex ploring in the river bed above the falls, and discovered a number of ancient gun barrels, lost, proba bly, by sportsmen up the river in long-gone days, and still, after the rotting away of the stocks, slowly forced down stream by the current. Caves and curious form ations in the rocks were discover ed, the existence of which bad never been suspected before. All that day, March 31, 1848, Niagara Falls remained dry; and people who remained up Until late at night, expecting to see a change, went to bed without witnessing it. But in the early morning of April 1, the familiar thander of the great cataract was once more heard, and every one knew that I the mysteriously drained river bed was again pouring its flood ' over the falls. Now for tlie explanation of this strange phenomenon. It proved to be, after all, very simple. The winter of 1847 and 1848 had been one of extreme severity. Ice of such thickness had never been known as formed on Lake Erie that season. When the break-up came, toward the end of March, a strong northeast wind was blow ing, which piled the great fieldt of ice in floes, and then in banks HP high as miniature icebergs. Toward night on March 30 the wind suddenly changed to the op posite direction and increased to a terrific gale, which hurled back the ice and drove it into the entrance of Niagara River with such force that a huge and almost impene'rable dam was formed. For a whole day the source of the | river was stopped up, and the stream was drained'of its supply. By ttie morning of the thirty-first the river was practically dry, and lit us for tweuty-four hours the roar of Niagara Falls was stilled. | Then in the early morningof April 1, the icepack gave way under the tremendous pressure from above, ! and the long-strained volume of j water rushed down and reclaimed its own. UNIVERSITY OPENS WITH 1224 STUDENTS. Oct- 12th, 126 th Anniversary of Lay ing Cornerstone of Old East- Local Alumni Hold Meetings in Number of N- C. Towns —Speakers to Attend Meetings. Cor. of The Gleaner. Chapel Ilill, Oct. 7. —Attend- ance figures at the University of North Caroliua have passed all records. A total of 1224 students have registered for the opening of the 125tih session, of whom 425 are freshmen. Notable increases besides the freshman class are in the law school, in the pre-inedical group, and in the new school of commerce, and a large number of men who were in the army and navy have returned to take up their interrupted work. Iu formally opening the Uni versity President Chase, just be ginning his first year as president after teu years of service in the faculty, called on the students to retain and develop spirit ual life in a State which he said was entering upon a period of rapid material growth. "After you place," he said, "youwilK be called upon to live inftcommoriwealth which is now / underg«uig( and in all hu man probability will contiuue to undergo for many years, an enorm ous material growth and enrich ment. You will do your part as a citizen of North Carolina only if you come to realize that along with material growth there must go spiritual growth, that man is more precious thau the goods he creates, that & full and free and happy life for every individual must be the highest goal of a true democracy." October liilh, University Day, the 120 th anniversary of the lay ing of the cornerstone of the Old East building, will be celebrated this year in exercises at, Chapel Hill and iu a series of Alumni meetings in cities all over North Carolina. Efforts are being made to have meetings iu every county and arrangements have already been completed by local alumni in Charlotte, Greensboro, Wil mington, Raleigh, Durham, Tar boro, New Bern, Wadesl'oro, Alt Airy, Lumberton, Lauriuburg, Statesville, Fayetteville, Salis bury, Monroe, and Washington. At Chapel Hill tli- Hon. Francis D. Winston of Louisburg, a mem ber of the class of 1870, will make the annual address in Memorial Hall. President Chase will at tend meetings at Greensboro, Dur ham and Raleigh. Prof. M. C. H. Noble will attend the Wilmington meeting and Dr. Joseph Hyde Pratt will be at Charlotte Occupying the center of inter est of the alumni at these gather ings will be the progress of the fnnd for Hie Graham Memorial UujMing, which the alumni have undertaken to raise in memory of the late Edward Kidder Graham. The sum of $150,000 will bo raised for a building which will bo the center of all student activities and a general social gathering place for the University. Other matters that will lie dis cussed by the alutnni are the com piling of a complete record of the University men who were in ser vice in the war and the organiza tion of local University welfare committees. Cannot Photograph In Colon. It seems a remarkable tliliiK. consid ering the progress of the science of photography and cinematography, that color photography Is still an undis covered secret.

Pennlllon Singing. Pennlllon singing Is quite common In Wales, and peculiar to the princi pality. It consists of an Instrument play ing over a tune In strict time and re peating It over and over again, while the singer or singers extemporlM words to It In rhyme. The Impromptu poetry must lit In with the music and Is generally of an amusing character. The custom Is quite common among the people, and tho Instrument used la their national Instrument, the harp. Ths 6lbla and Women Presehsi* Women preachers are taking com fort from the fact that one champion has discovered what they think Is bib lical recognition for them. In ths prayer book version of Psalm Ixvlll, occnrs the verse, "The Lord gave ths word; great was the company of the ■preachers." The revised version of the Bible translates the passage thus: "The Lord glveth the word. The wom en that publish the tidings are a great host" Where the Orecer Was. Doris' mother was In the habit of or dering her bread at Smith's grocery. One day while entertaining caller* they heard I>orls In the next room tslklng through her toy telephone, asking Cen tral for Smith's grocery, wheti she called: "Mother, Sir. Smith Isn't at home." "Where do you suppose he Is?" replied the mother. Doris answered: "Why, he's up In heaven getting our dally bread." GRAHAM, N. THURSDAY. OCTOBER 16, 1919 ANTIQUITY OF DECORATIVE ART Strange Sources From Which Pigments Used by Modern Painters Are Derived. PRESERVATION OF SURFACES. Crude but Effective Processes Employ ed by'the Egyptians and Greeks of Pliny's Day—Noah Prudently Waterproofed the Ark. Whether paint was Invented In an swer to a need for a preservative or to meet a desire for beauty Is a question fully as knotty as the ancient one about the relative time of arrival of the chicken or the egg. It was Invented, though, and It serves both purposes equally; so whether It Is an offspring of mother necessity or an adopted son •f beauty remains forever a disputed question. The first men, cowering under the fierce and glnrlng suns of the biblical countries, constructed rude huts of wood to shelter them. The perishable nature of these structures caused rapid, decay, and It Is probable that tin oc cupants, seeking some artificial means of preservation, hit upon the pigments of the earth in their search. It Is per haps natural to suppose that It wns the instinct of preservation that led men to the search, although the glories of the sunsets and the beauties of the rainbow may have created a desire to imitate those wonders In their own dwellings. The earliest record of the applica tion of a preservative to a wooden structure dates from the ark, which was, according to the Bible, "pitched within and without" The pitch was a triumph of preservation whatever It lacked as a thing of benuty. Decoration applied to buildings first comes te light with ancient Babylon, whose walls were covered with repre sentations of bunting scenes and of combat These were done In red and the method followed was to paint the scene pn the bricks at the time of manufacture, assuring permanence by baking. Strictly speaking, this was not painting so much us It wns the earliest manifestation of our own fa miliar kalsoinlnlng. The first Hebrew to mention paint ing Is Moses. In the thirty-third chap ter of the book of Numbers he In structs the Israelites, "When ye have passed over the Jordan Into the laud of Canaan, then shall ye drive out all the Inhabitants of the lnnd from be fore you and destroy all their pic tures. ..." At later periods the Jews sdopted many customs of the peoples who suc cessively obtained power over them and In the apocryphal book of the Maccabees Is found this allusion to the art of decorating, "For as the mas ter bultaSrof a now house must care for the whole building, but he that undertaketh to set It out and paint It, must seek out things for the adorning thereof." Although Homer gives credit to a Oreek for the discovery of paint the illusions to It In the books of Moses, the painted mummy cases of the Egyp tians and the decorated walls of Baby lon and Thebes fix Its origin at a period long antecedent to the Grecian era. The walls of Thebes were paint ed 1,900 years before the coming of Christ and 01KJ years before "'Oiner imote his bloomln' lyre." The Greeks recognized the value of paint as a preservative and made use »f something akin to It on their ships. Pliny writes of the modo of boiling wnx and painting ships with It, after which, he continues, "neither the sea, lor the wind, nor the sun can destroy •be wood thus protected." The Romans, being essentially a warlike people, never brought the dec tratlon of buildings to the high plane ;t had reached with the Greeks. For til that the ruins of Pompeii show nany structures whoso mural deeora ilone are In fair shape today. The colors used were glaring. A black >ackground was the usual one and the M>mblnatlons worked thereon red, yel iow and blue. In the e*rly Chrlatlan era the u*e of no*alc* for churchea somewhat •up planted mural painting.

With wool at the present price and the likelihood that it will stay there t bccauso of the world-wide shortage, thousands of American farmers are adding flocks of sheep to the live stock ou their places. And In so doing there has come a need for buildings to house them. Raising lambs and keeping a flock of sheep In a healthy condition re quires more care than In accomplish ing the same result with other farm «nlmals. Sheep, and especially lambs. are very susceptible to weather con ditions, and frequently a rainy spell will cause a considerable loss. While sheep must have plenty of pasture In which to run and feed, they also must have a place to shelter them, for they certainly "know enough to come In when It rains." Besides the feed the flock gets from the pasture, It Is nec essary also to provide them with roughage, which usually Is placed In specially designed feed racks. Most of tids feeding Is done Indoors by those who have been successful In sheep raising. Farm building architects, whose business It Is to design buildings to suit the needs of various kinds of ani mals, have taken the needs of sheep Info consideration In planning the sheep barn. But there are many farm ers who would keep n small flock of sheep, If they could do so without making a large Investment In build ings. For the latter class there has been planned the barn shown In the accompanying Illustration. This fourteen-sided burn Is (V) feet In diameter and has a 12-foot silo In the center. On tho mow floor around tho alio there I* ample spare for the win ter** supply "f hay for the animals the building will accommodate, while the silo furnlshe* them with fresh feed throughout tho winter montha. The exterior of the barn Is attractive and will ndd,to the appearance of the farm building group. It Is of frame construction set on a concrete founda tion. The half of the Interior which la devoted to stalls for the horse* and cattle has a concrete floor; the half for sheep hns a cinder floor, graded ao ua to provide ample drainage to keep the floor dry, a thing the aheep must have. The stalls for horse* and cows or for either of them are placed In a semi circle, the animals to face In. At the rear of the stalls Is n gutter sunk Into the concrete floor, anil overhead 1* a carrier track for the removal of litter. The track also runs over the head of the stalls, which makes the feeding of the stock easy, and extends around the bulldtuf over the sheep feeltng racks. The plan of the floor shows the plac ing of the stall*, the eheep feed Condition to Avoid. The dangerous moment In life comes when men begin to over-value the pant at the expense of the pre»- ent. It Is the moment of religious controversies, for ancestor worship, for narrowing In, for exalting one set of ponplo and excluding another. When v reach If. It mean* that we are growing old. Rut we need never reach It. —Exchange. racks and the overhead carrier system. The feed racks are movable and can be constructed by the carpenters who build the barn. While they are placed under the carrier track for conven ience, they enn be transferred out doors. In good weather and taken Into the barn In bad. The stalls will accommodate four teen horses or cattle and provide them with the comforts that these animals need to ; do their best work, or to be at the highest state of pro ductivity. The windows admit plenty of sunshine and keep fresh air cir culating through the barn. These are two essentials If the animals are to be kept healthy, especially the cows. The construction of farm buildings, homes, barns, hog houses, granaries, chicken houses and the smaller build ings the modern farmer wants and needs, has undergone many radical changes during the last few years. Ar chitects have made an Intensive study of the requirements In a building to make It a healthful place for the live stock, and have embodied the results of this study In the designs for these structures. The prospective builder will make no ailstaka In consulting an experienced architect when he plans to erect any sort of a new farm building. From the architect and from the con tractor and material dealer can be gained soma valuable pointers. Poor farm bulldkigs are a bad In vestment. If they l are to house the livestock they must be so equipped and so planned as to keep the animals producing at top speed, or the profit, at the present prices of feed and labor, will be lost. Labor, too, Is a big ex pense Item on the farm nowadays, and by Installing In the barn a litter , carrier and other conveniences less time Is required to care for the live stock and more time can be devoted to the work In the fields. Besides, la bor saving equipment tends to make the help more contented to remain on the farm, which Is a point the pro gressive farmer |s not overlooking. This IN the year of farm building. The farmer's business has become one of the most Important In the scheme of existence, and, likewise, one of the most profitable, If It Is conducted ef ficiently and economically. And there Is nothing that brings about this happy result more than well-built, well planned and modern buildings. While the cost In money tills year Is more than It was during the years preceding the war, some bright mind has figured out that when the price of buildings Is figured In terms of farm prodjicts It Is much less. In other words It requires fewer bushels of wheat, corn or oats, or less of any other of the things produced on the farm to build a barn or n home than It did three or four yeors ago. And as the cost of everything Is relative, the farmer has no cause to hesitate If he | needs a ne«i- farm building. Cltlaa Qo West. Henry Wntterson says rltles have a strange tendency to move west. They do, writes "tluard" In the Philadelphia Press. " Europe's three largest cities, I .on don. Pari* and Berlin, have distinct ly moved west from their origlnnl centers. Tokyo, which Is Japan's biggest city, and Canton, the metropolis of China, Calcutta for years the capital of India, and Cairo, the largest city of Africa, shifted westward. South America'* two principal cities, Itlo Janeiro and Buenos Aires, couldn't well move Baat and they geew Inland, as did Boston, Philadel phia. Baltimore and Chicago. New York expanded north and east, as It couldn't leap the Hudson on the west.

PAINT ASAN ASSET. • Bankers Say They Lend More Money on Property When , Buildings Are Well Painted. i AN INDICATION OF THRIFT. I i On* Concern Advances 28 Par Cant, i Mora If Repainting la Dona Every Five Year*. Don It pay to paint carefully farm buildings? Does tt add to the selllnf 1 value of a farm when buildings are properly kept up and regularly paint ed? A careful Inquiry of a number of leading hnnkera In the Mississippi vsl ley, Including such states as lowa, Illi nois, Michigan, Ohio, Indiana and Mis souri, reveals ihe fact that In nesrly 1 every case the bankers did not hesi tate to say that tliey would lend all the way from B to DO per cent, more on land where farm buildings were well painted and kept In good condition. Tliey maintain that well kept-up and well painted buildings and fences are an Indication of thrift and that the thrifty fanner la a good client, and to him money can be ssfely loaned. An average of the returns frotn these bankers shows thst the Increased loan value because of painted buildings la around 22 per cent Borne of these bankers make Inter esting comment A Michigan concern says that, while not especially pre pared to advlae definitely In respons* to this Inquiry, the ofAcers would loan more money on farma where buildings were painted than where they were not eo treated. This bank also finds that where houaes, barns and fences are well taken care of the farm la a profitable proposition, and bonkera In general consider the farmer a good client Another Michigan bsnk says "fsrm buildings out of repair and needing paint Indicate that the owner Is slow pay." Such farms are rated at about one-third of the assessed vslue for loans. Where the form buildings ere In good slispe the rating Is one half. The president of a middle west ern hank says that when real estate loans are considered, painted buildings are always taken Into consideration In making an estimate. Tho general ap pearance of the property surrounding the house and barn and also the fields and fencea would be carefully observ ed. lie further says that he has no hesitancy In saying that he would sb aolutely refuse a loan on farma where the buildings were not kept up and well painted. In his Judgment un palnted farm buildings would reduce the loan value at least 25 per cent A Minnesota hanker says that he Is much more willing to loan money whore the buildings are well painted. In hla particular case he believes that he would loan 20 per cent more than If the buildings were not properly tsken care of. A farmer who will keep his buildings painted takee a much deeper Interest ,n hla work than one who does not Another Minne sota bank says that well painted build ings hove resulted In securing from his bank sometimes as high ns 25 per cent more money than where the ( buildings are not painted. An Ohio { concern saya that It will loan 25 per | cent more money on a well kept farm where bulldlnga aro painted at leaat once every five years. A southern Illi nois hank ssys that It has no fixed rule about this, but It docs make a de cided difference when ownera of farm lands apply for loans. If the bulldlnga are well painted and thus well pre ' served the loan rate would not only ' he cheaper, hut the amount of money borrowed would be larger. A northern [ Illinois bank does not hesitate to say that It would loan fully 60 per cent more ort a farm where bulldlnga were ' well painted "and In order than ' where they were not. The vice presl ' dent, who answers the Inquiry, goes ' on to soy: "There probably are many farmers good financially ami morally ' who permit their buildings to remain unpointed, but gs a rule tho most sub stantial people who live In the coun try keep their buildings well pnlnted." 1 An lowa bank, through Its vice pres. ' Ident, states that It would make a dlf -1 ference of nt least 25 per cent In fa vor of the fnrm with pnlnted bulld • Ings. Another lowa concern says that It would make a difference of nt leaat I 20 per cent. All tills being true, It Is perfectly 1 evident that It Is s good business prop- I osltlon to keep the farm buildings well il painted. They not only look better y snd are more pleasing to the owner, but the farm would sell to better ad il vantage, the loon value of the property i, would be greatly Increased and the y buildings themselves would last much |. longer and need less repair.—The American Agriculturist.
