This should be remembered when we tie our horses to a post while we do our trading in town. Horses have feelings as well as persons. Home- Rules ok Etiquette.— Be courteous in the home. Hus band, treat your wife like a lady in your home as well as on the street, If you want your boy to be "a little gentleman" when he is away from home,he must have example as well as precept in the home. Example will do more for the boy and the girl than any bouk on rules of eti quette. Advertised Letters, — The following is a list of letters remain ing “uncalled for" in the Weldon postofHce : Missjosie Tillery. I’ersons calling lor above leiters will please say "advertised," giv ing date of advertising. D. T, Clark, P, M,, Weldon, N. C June 10, 1B18, Let All the Pi:ople Pray.— Every day exactly at 12 o'clock, if you will listen, you will hear the bell at the Episcopal church ring. Do you know what that means? Well, it is iust this, when you hear the bell, whatever you may be do ing at ihe time, stop a monieniand utter a prayer. What a beautiful custom this is. Don't forget to listen For the tap of the bell, and may every man, woman and child in our town form the habit of utter ing a prayer just this time, A, iii E. College.—We have received a copy of the catalogue of North Carolina State College of Agriculture and Hngineeriiig at West Raleigh. That great techni cal college is doint> a line work, SciemiKc educaiiuii Kts in admira bly with the demands of such limes as these when |>ruducii«ii in all lines requires cllicicnily trained men. Thecullci; ' ult'^ji s lull I'uur- yearccuiriics III .\i;riculiui , Ciiciii istry. Civil Engiiieerint;, .Vlechani- cal Electrical Engineering and Tex tile Industry. That Old Swimming Hole.— This is the season when grim death claims many of its victims through the medium of drowning. The news of the day is interspersed with accounts of people having lost their lives in water, and the larger per cent of the victims are those who sought refreshment in a bath. Year after year these Fatalities oc cur and the numbers being contin ually on the increase. A whole some restraint on the part of the parents and guardians would un doubtedly result in the saving of lives. The Way to Build Up a Town.—The only way to build up a town is for everyone to go hand in hand—every man to the wheel. Banish all feelings of discord, if any; let harmony prevail and pros perity will follow. Talk about your town, write about it, speak well of it, encourage your men at the head of municipal aflbirs; choke the croakers, gag the grumblers and squelch the scolders. Beauti fy the streets in every way, patron ize its merchants, refrain from sending outside for goods, favor home enterprises always, and if you can't think of some good word to say, keep quiet. Be a hustler md keep it UK I-'kee Advertising.—When a newspaper gives a lot of free ad vertising in order to boom some concert or church entertainment which you are interested in, keep track of the number of lines that are printed week by week, and mutiiply that nunibe'' by the regu lar advertising rates of the paper. Compare the results with the ac tual money value of any favor that you can get from any other busi ness concern. Then take into con sideration the fact that advertising and circulation are the only two things that a newspaper has to sell, nd these days of higher prices, how much do you think they ought to give away for nothing? Every County in North Car olina IS expected to Subscibe its 1-ull Quota,—The week of June 2.?rd, is to be observed as North Carolina War Savings Week, beginning on Sunday, June 2Jid, with a State wide appeal for War Savings in the churches and Sunday schools, followed on Mon day, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday by a house-tu-huusc can vass in every community in the State for War Savings pledges, and culminating on Friday, June 2H, which is National War Sav ings Day, with a meeting of citi zens in every schoolhouse in the State to receive reports of purchas es and pledges already made and secure additional pledges, if any are needed, lo make the quota. Herald 1'or "The Kaiser, the Beast ok Berlin."—Did you know that the Kaiser had a poison-Hlled abscess in his ear, and that if it burst he would be a ray ing maniac ? Did you know that the Kaiser's left arm is six inches shorter than his t ight, and ihai the hand is pu ny as a child’s? And did you know how he carried it in order to disguise the deformity ? Did you know that the Kaiser has a mania fur admiring beautiful hands, which greatly embarrasses the ladies of his court? That he wears many bracelets and Femi nine rings, copied from those he admires? That he has 360 full- dress uniforms, that he was twice king, twice a grand duke, 13 times a duke, twice a prince, nine times a count, besides being a bishop? Did you know why he slaps his right thigh all the time? Of course, you didn’t. Few people outside of the imperial circle know them. They are secrets as carefully guar ded as has been the proof that Ger many planned and started the war. All these things and many more in the private life of the Jackal of Europe, who has plunged the whole world into war and sorrow, are shown in "The Kaiser, the Beast of Berlin." To miss it is to miss the most illuminating expose of this enemy of mankind. Batchelor's Opera House, June 25th and 26th. Matinee 3:30, Wednesday, June 26th. Admission 25 and .SO cents plus war tax.

N itrate Of Soda.—To the farm ers of Halifax county who applied for Nitrate of Soda from ihe Gov ernment, I am giving a copy of a letter that I received from Mr. C. J. Brand, Chief Bureau of Mar kets, of Washington, D. C., who has charge of the distribution of the soda, which is as follows: N. B. Stevens, County Agent, Enfield, N.C. 1 have your letter of June 3rd, relative to nitrate of soda. At the present time, the Depart ment has available for distribution in North Carolina about 45 per cent of the total quantity of nitrate of soda applied for. This, of course, includes the nitrate that has already been delivered. It Is possible that we will have another cargo of nitrate of soda around July 1st, from which a small shipment can be made you but this will arrive very late and it is possible that it cannot be used at that time. This however is very indelinite and we cannot make any definite statement regarding it. The 45 percent, referred to above, however, is nitrate that is now in Wilmington being distributed and shipment will begin immediately. Chas, j. Brand, Chief of Bureau. Mid-Summer Millinery Open ing.—A complete and attractive showing of the later styles and shapes in Leghorns, Milans and Lisera Hats to which you are cor dially invited.

And lei the prospective groom pre sent a bank book showing a sub stantial deposit or a certificate from a trustworthy source that he is in dustrious and has remunerative employment. A man without hands can never feel well. He is happiest who doesn't ex pect all the joy in the woi ld. LOST—On the streets in Weldon an Elgin watch with monogram, “K. W. L.” and Masonic slide. Will give I suitable reward if given in at the postoffice window. Almost any caller is a bore if he comes at the wrong time. Red Blood and Courage I C.
