. BEPEAL MEASURE EX ilTES CONGRESS.
Political Predictions Vary as to to the Oat
' come of the Big Fighi Ahead.
Washington, March 29. No
legislative issue of recent years
has excited Congress as has the
controversy over repeal of the toll
exempti n claim of tbe Panama
Canal act. Lsst week's events,
which put on record a breach in
the solidarity of the Democrat o
Party have caused i.o end of con
flicting political predictions to iu
orease the tensity of interest in
the subject. The situation is
fraught with many complications.
Oratorical strife over the repeal
will be renewed tomorrow. The
House will resume general debate
on the SimB bills, leading up tea
fiual vote in that branoh, proba
bly late Tuesday j,uight or Wed
nesday. Iu the Senate, discussion
will revolve arouud one of the
many side issties that have arisen,
Senator James Hamilton Lewis
proposing to discuss a resolution
and bill he has introioced to fol
low repeal as a sort of balm to the
wounds of his party members,
who thus far have opposed th m
President. Senator Lewis' ineas-,
are would give the President au
thority to suspend tolls whenever
he should deem it in the public
interest so to do. The Illinois
Senator will cite a Berie? of pre
cedents on which be ba-es tbe
right of Congress toeyteud sush
authority to the Chief Executive
As against the pr 'pssal of Senator
Liwis, the Minority leader Sena
tor Gallinger will urgi a resolu
tion which would express it as the
sense of Americans that Congress
has the right to do as it pleases
with respect to American chip
ping through the Panama Canal.

QUARTERLY MEETINS AT ROCKWELL
P. 0. S. of A's. Have a Big Meeting And
a Fine Supper.
The Rockwell camp entertained
the quarterly meeting of the Pa
triotic Sons of America last Thurs
day evening. This was the larg
est country gathering yet held,
all the camps being represented.
Salisbury had tbe largest delega
tion, having twenty-four members
present. A considerable increase
was shown throughout the county
to the satisfaction of all, Rock
well having gained more than one
hundred per cent both in member
ship and finances. At some con
venient point in the county, a
field meeting will be held this
summer, a committee to arrange
for the gathering having been ap
pointed. At the next meeting
wh'ch will be with the Faith camp
the laet'Friday in June, officers
will be elected. The County Pre
sident, J. C Kesler of Salisbury
Camp, presided last night. This
order is growing rapidly. One of
its main objects is to imbue the
youthful American heart with de
voted patriotism, yet other things
such as insurance and fraternal
ism add to the efficacy of its work.
List, but not least, the Rook
well Camp, whose president is tbe
genial, T. J. A. Barger, served an
elegant sapper to all the visitors.
Found a Cure for Rheumatism
"I suffered with rheumatism
for two years and could not get
my r'ght hand to my month for
that length of time," writes Lee
L. Chapman, Mapleton, Iowa. "I
suffered terrible pain so I could
not sleep or lie still at night. Five
years ago I began using Chamber
lain's Liniment and in two
months I was well and have not
suffered with rheumatism since."

An Acre in Fruit.
You may be surprised at the
number of fruit plants you can
place oh an acre. You should not
limit yourself to an acre, but here-
is a list for that much grouDd:
14 plum trees set 1515 feet,
28 p9ch trees set 15x15 feet,
14 Japan persimmon trees set
16 apple trees set 26x20 feet,
16 pear trees set 26x20 feet,
20 fig bushes set 12x10 feet,
50 blackberries set 4x4 feet,
50 dewberries sat 4x4 feet,
20 bunch grapes set 10x10 feet,
1,050 strawberry plants (five
rows) set 3 feet by one foot.
This is a total, all told, of 1,050
strawberries and 228 other plants
and treees. No .provision has been
made for the pecans and Musca
dine grapes. These should be pro
vided for by using the pecans for
shade trees, and the muscadine
grapes should have a place by
themseves. This list may be
changed or varied at will, omit
ting some and adding others to
suit local conditions. H. Harald
