The army has just adopted a new type of machine gun, but the House of Representatives still clings to its same old Cannon. The Brownsville negroes will stay out of the army, announces the New York Press. They will not be reinstated or further pun ished. Sknatok Gordon has retired to his Mississippi farm. No won der. Somebody carelessly men tioned him for Vice-President the other day. Thi: high price of living is tell ing on the New Jersey prison. The wardens complain that it costs them nine cents a day now to feed their prisoners. “The ensuing years will see no idleness on my part," says Col. Roosevelt, and that is equally certain to inean that a few other people will be kept busv. OLtl Prof. Linotype is a great joker now and then. .A Georgia editor wrote an editorial reading, “We are a thrifty people," and the professor sent it forth, “We are a a thirsty people.” Cameron B. Buxton, a son of Mr. and Mrs. J. C. Buxton, of North Carolina, is one of the most promising railroad men in the country. Although he is but 31 years of age, he holds the high po sition of general eastern agent of the Santa Fe Railroad, with head quarters at Philadelphia, North Carolina continues to sit at the head of the table. Nat GooDVtiN talks frankly of his matrimonial experiences. He .says: “My first wife was an angel, my second a silly fool; my third a ‘Roman senator'; my fourth makes me superlatively happy. No self- respecting American citizen should take advantage of the unwritten law. If a man steals your wife, don’t kill him—caution him. The true philosophy of life is to achieve something and then forget it.” The officials of the North Caro lina Teachers' Assembly are mak ing extensive preparations for the great meeting of North Carolina teachers which is to be held at Asheville, June 14-17, 1910. This will be twenty-seventh annual ses sion of that organization, and al ready preparations have proceeded far enough to make it evident that it will be one of the greatest edu cational gatherings ever held in the State. Mayor Riddick, of Norfolk, struck a key note a few days ago when he suggested to the Industrial Commission the idea of offering lower taxation for the encourage ment of manufacturers to locate their plants in Norfolk. This very subject is now being considered by Baltimore, which has a new charter pending before the Legislature at Annapolis. What’s good for Norfolk and Baltimore would be good for Wel don. The Farmers’ Union is preach ing to the Farmers the doctrine “Don’t Go In Debt,” says the News and Observer. One day the eccentric John Randolph, of Roanoke, rose in his seat in Con gress and cried out in his fiar-reach- ing voice; “Mr. Speaker, I have found the philosopher’s stone. It fa ‘Pay as you go.’ ” Later on a lesser light added to Randolph's maxim the words "if you can’t pay don’t go." This is the lesson the Parmera’ Union is trying to teach. Ooa’t Throw It Away.

The final argument of the famous suit to dis solve the Standard Oil Company, of New Jersey,as a conspiracy and a monopoly in violation of the I Sherman .Anti-Trust law has been I made and the court now has the I matter under consideration, j And yet, according to our way of I thinking, there are greater evils ; for the Anti-Trust law to grapple : with than the Standard Oil. The I Standard Oil people sell oil at rea sonable prices, but oh, ye “Beef Trust’’ and ye “Flour Trust," and all the evils which go to make the cost of living almost beyond the reach of the man with moderate means. Just read how Major Hemphill sings the praises of Richmond, af ter a residence of one month. He is miles ahead of the natives and knows a good city when he sees it: “Vi'hat’s the use of living unless you live in Richmond? How can you live, in fact, how can anybody live, outside of Richmond, upon which every god hath set his seal and said distinctly that there is no other place in the world—leastwise no other place that should be ttien- tioned in the same breath or the same linotype?’’ And yet the late Judge Lynch, for forty years a well known rail road official of this place, once said that there were only two places in which life was worth living—Wel don and New York. The Richmond Times Dispatch says: “North Carolina has fur nished Richmond another small pox patient, Sam lidwards, claim ing Charlotte, as his home.’’ So much for the splendid adver tising the chief editorial writer on the Times-Dispatch is giving Rich mond. Some days ago the Times- Dispatch exploited the advantages of Richmond, a city where the sun shines brightest and ihe birds sing sweetest, and where the gods have set their seals saying there is no other place so fair, and sending out a general invitation, saying to all, “Come and abide with us.’’ Sam read that editorial, perhaps, believed firmly in his soiil that the invitation extended even unto Coon Hollow, his home in the county where Independence first blossomed, and he straightway hied himself to the fair city of seven hills and took along a case of the dreaded small pox with him. So much for Sam. But our friends should not complain. We have given them some of our best men who are identified with the spirit ual, intellectual and commercial uplight of Richmond and in giving so much that is good it w as only natural that a little evil should creep in. Put Sam in the pest house where he can do no further harm. ,st.\te UJ' UHIO, ) CITV oK Tol.KDO, Iss. (dt XTY. J I’miik .f. (’luMiey makes oath that lu* is at'niov pavini'v of K. .J.

I THE UNPAID DEBTS OF THE WEALTHY. Under the above title the follow ing article, by Ella Wheeler Wil cox, recently appeared in the Rich- Niond Times-Dispatch. We re gard it as worth reproduction in this column. “Do you know what helps to \ make anarchists?’’ said a bright man to me. j “It is the indifference of scores ; of people born rich to the needs of I iheir creditors. Never having ; felt the lack of $5, $10 or $100, I they cannot realize the misery it ; entails when they withhold those small sums.’’ A milk dealer once told the writer that families in New York , City, whose names were syno- i nyms of wealth and aristocracy, ■ often allowed bills of $50 or $70 I to go unpaid for years, i A news agent gave me the names I of a wealthy family whose news paper account of $25 had been I vainly presented six times. The ’ family had sailed for Europe with- : out one word or dollar to the man. THI- Mi'OMKN TO lll.A.ME. The millionaire is busy with large enterprises and leaves a sec retary to attend to these bills, per haps; and the secretary considers the small bills unimportant and puts them aside while he attends to "more serious" matters. As if anything could be more serious than the needs of the man or wo man dependent upon a small, hard earned income ! More frequently, however, I be lieve the fault of these neglected hills lies with women of wealth. , The husband expects his wife to attend to such details, and when madame is called upon she is busy with a visitor, or taking a nap, or dressing for a reception, or going , to act on a charitable committee for building a new hospital or church, and she sends word to call I again. ! So small a matter can wait. If 1 the bill is presented too often,how- ; ever, madame becomes indignant at "the presumption.” She does not like to be “importuned” in such a matter. It ought to he made a law that; all people of wealth should be post-! ed on the street corners in large red letters when their petty bills remain unpaid longer than two i months. It is criminal for the dispensers of large charities and expensive hospitalities to ignore the needs of small tradesmen or workmen or women who are dependent upon . their little earnings for daily neces sities. HOVS' TO KEGARD DEBTS. One of the first principles to in still into the mind of a young boy or girl is a high sense of honor i about nmney matters. Teach your j children to repay a loan of a post-1 age stamp as punctiliously as they I would a $ 100 note. i Children absorb ideas gained by i listening to the conversation of their elders more quickly than they do sermons directed to them individually. If you are forced to let a bill or a debt run any length of time, speak of it in the presence of your children as a tnisfortune which you hope to avert occurring a second lime. Show that you are anxious about the matter, and that you feel that they will be ready to deprive them selves of sotiic pleasures, and even necessities, to aid you in wiping out the debt and saving the family honor. Bring them up with Ihe idea that patches and old clothes are honor able when they save the wearer from incurring debts. No matter how brilliant and gift ed a man may be, no matter how beautiful and accomplished a wo man, both are blemished hopeless ly ir, the eyes of right-thinking people if they are negligent about their financial obligations. Hundreds of unhappy marriages can be traced to this one fault in either husband or wife. There is nothing more humilia ting to a woman of refinement and delicacy of feeling than the knowl edge that her neighbors and asso ciates know her husband disregards his money obligations and that trades are needing what he uses for other purposes. There is nothing hurts a man of good principles more than to find his wife inconsiderate of the rights of her creditors. The moment a man and wife be gin to have discord over monev from any cause the bloom is gone from the domestic rose. Every young woman should learn some thing of her lover’s methods in these matters before she becomes his wife. The man who makes light of fi nancial obligations is the man who will make light of his marriage ob ligations. There is a streak of.dis honor somewhere in his iiMke-tt|^ The right sort of a father or mother could overcome and eradi cate such a trail by beginning ear ly, but it will prove a difficult task for a wife. The thoughtless girl is more easily molded by a high-principled and and careful husband, but, were 1 a man, 1 should steer Cupid's bark far away from the course of the fair voyager who left port with unpaid bills behind her. Start your children out in life with fixed high ideals on ihis sub ject and rest assured they will not wander far away. Too many boys and girls hear poverty and econo my preached, but hear nothing to set them thinking upon the disgrace of debt. Unce a young mind as sociates debt with dishonor, the foundation of right principles is laid. It is your business to do tins fui your child. It is a better fortune to bestow upon a son or daughter than $1,000,000 and or in different ideas of honor in the use of other people's money. THE NORTH CAROLINA I'EIIERA- TIO.N OFTO.MENSCl.llBS'-CIVIC DEI'ART.MENT. (Miss Eli 'abeth Schwanberg, Chair man, Southern Pines.) One of the best ways to cultivate a love for the beautiful is to begin with our own surroundings. Civic beauty means cleanliness, comfort, pride. The vacant lot over grown with weeds and brush is a reproach to any neighborhood. Civic beauty is not an idle dream, it is an easily realized ideal. The reports that have come to this department are most encour- ing. Though not all the towns represented in the Federation have a civic department in their clubs, yet those that have, report better work done this year, and the com mittee has helped to arouse new interest. One of our newest civic clubs, during the two years since its or ganization has raised over $2,200 most of which tias been spent in restoring and beautifying the town hall, now the library and club room. A civic league in one town organized with a cleaning day, and a law imposing a fine for expectora ting on the side walks. Another civic league is determined to have clean and beautiful streets and lawns, while still another exercises close observance of health laws. Five hundred trees planted, Ar- ■ bor day and Civic day celebrations, I improved conditions around the railroad station, and a systematic garbage collection is the record of' one small town. A large neighbor, through the influence of its wo-1 man’s club, had a clean up day, I and is working to raise $5000 per | year, that the public library may be kept open on Sunday afternoons, i at night, and on holidays. An an-1 nual cleaning up day, the removal of fences, and a petition for a union j railroad station, show the work an-! other club is doing for its town, j Several other clubs report Arbor! day, and cleaning day observance, i while still others are working in a j quiet way toward general civic [ improvement. Everywhere may be seen the good results of the woman's club with the local civic league. To those clubs w'hich have not attempted anything along civic lines, the committee wishes to make a plea that they inaugurate a movement towards better condi tions in their towns. Do it at once. Will not clubs which have not al ready established junior civic leagues for the training of olt school children in principles of law, order and cleanliness, do so at once? There is no town but can enlist the help of the children in the effort to have clean streets if they are taught ihis, and have cultivated in them a taste for beau ty and cleanliness. This paper was contributed to the Betterment Column by Mrs. W. H. S. Burgwyn. There is this difference: Pin- chot was fired; Ballinger seems about to be smoked out.
