Notwithstanding Statesville has stringent prohibitory laws, which are enforced about as rigidly as such laws can be, liquor was sold in town Saturday, openly and "above board, and bo far froni any body trying to prevent the sale, a company of anxious bidders crowded about the eelier and some of Mffifie apparently disap polutedTwne the supply was ex hausted. The seller was Deputy Collector Davis and he sold with out fear, for the product had been confiscated by the government be cause the makers thereof had fail ed to observe the formality ot paying tax on the same. Uuder the statutes in such casesmade and provided, TJucle Sam is not restrained by local prohibition laws from selling illicit spirits which have been - seized .and .for feited to the government, so that Deputy Collector Davis was en tirely within the law in making the sa.e. On such occasions any individual is free to purchase and the highest bidder takes the cake. Mr. Davis' office was well tilleu during the sale with people who were concerned 'abut the dispo-; sition of the goods, and they watched the bidding' expectantly and apparently w th a biting thirst. Others who didn't know of the sale until it was over suf fered sufficient mental distress to form a basi for a damage suit. In the course of his remarks at both services Sunday, Rev. C. A.

Oth er; remarks and suggestions, ai though amusing, were very' sen sible. He says the people should end the most pious and conserva tive men to make their laws in stead of a Jot of lawyers that take advantage of their opportunity and make laws for the whole Stat just to ring in some individual case. Mr. Jenkins wishes it were possible for bim to go somewhere and sleep all during the next ses ion of the Legislature.

Lvxlnffton OlspHtca, Felsruary 13th. Americans though we are, and North Carolinians, we find many things that constantly remind us that we are, uot far removed from t ancestors who were bom and rear ed in the old countries and who spoke their Lative tongue and kept up the habits and customs of their respective birthplaces. This is specially true in the block of counties here in the Piedmont section where tue Dutch settled thickly. The generation that spoke, the Dutch language is hard- y gone and we suspect that there are still a few or the old men and women who could express them selves in that tongue. One day this week an old lady died in the- county whose age was written down in the old family Bible in Dutjh, and not one of her family could read it, so that ber exact age was not ascrtained. At their meeting Friday night he aldrmau passed an ordinance requiring all plumbers to pay an annual tax of $25.

Lexington is probably ,the only town on earth that makes no provision for train arrivals in the way of vehicles. Everybody who cjmes here for tbe first time wonders why. It fs told us that three separate Danville liquor houses have agents in Lexington this week taking or ders for liquor. We do not know the law od tbe case, and contra dictory expressions are heard re garding the action of other towns iu the state under similar circum stances.
