Six Months ——
THIS RECORD 48 YEARS OLD
We forgot to change our volume
number last week. The Reco.rd was
48 years old September 19. We have
in our possession a copy of the second
issue, just 48 years ago this week, in
whi:h Major London has a two-column
editoral scorching Josiah Turner, a
candidate in this district for Congress.
We had thought of reprinting it on
this the 48th. anniversary of its pub
lic [.tion just to show the folks how
M; jor London could write when he
was warmed up, and how hot politics
got in those earlier days. But pro
bably it will be more fitting to keep it
till our semi-centennial issue two
years hence. ~ ,
Just here it may be proper to state
that the Record has made financial
headway the past six months, and is
steadily crawling out of the hole into
which a serious combination ot cir
cumstances had thrown the manaee
ment. Seven months ago it appeared
an almost impossible thing to recover,
especially in the face of the hard times
in the country due to poor crops in
succession. But if things go as well as
they have, the day is saved, and the
Record should be in good shape-by the
coming of its fiftieth anniversary. Yet
the size of the paper this week might
indicate the contrary. However, this
very thing is an index to the adapt
ability of the paper to the peculiar
circumstances of the location. It hap
pens that our big foreign advertise
ments skip this fifth issue of Septem-'
ber, and that the lateness of the cot
ton crop makes it more difficulty and
costly to secure the semi-local business
necessary to publish a full-sized papei
than the extra effort and cost woulc.
justify. Here our close print comes
to the rescue, and we can cut the
size of the paper and yet have room
for all the county news and editorals.
This serves another good purpose this
week, as our “pressman” has gone
into training as a nurse and a new
pressman must be' broken in.
Edison is said by his son to be un
opposed to college education but to
want hard workers. An investigation
of the employment of the college men
and high school graduates of the past
ten years should determine whether
the schools are turning out hard work
Tunney is welcome to all the credit
there is in whipping the former heavy

siderable. The millions spent on that

Poincare of France is willing to dc
anything to fraternize with Germany
provided the Germans will acknow
ledge their crimina ity in beginning
the war. But when for a haif cen

of the case meant ultimately a war
it is not so- very surprising that Ger

when she thought she was ready,
started the conflagration herself.
Some little time ago, the Record
caiiea attention to t ■— —-
ficuity of spelling “ecstasy” correct
ly, stating that
rect spelling of it impressed upon him
by missing o
examination. Just now we saw it
misspelled again, and if we have seen
it spelled correctly in any of our ex
changes since the former paragrah
appeared, we do not recall the fact.
Such a report on the prospects of

This thing of being too religious if
getting to be suggestive of hypocrisy
In fact, hypocrisy these days is parti
cally limited to the overzealous evan
gelists. Aimee McPherson, the Cali
fornia priestess, almost worshipped by
thousands of followers, appears likely
to be proven guilty of downright im
morality, adultery, and lying. A
Portugeese evangelist at Charlotte has
run a big part of the negro population
crazy. One enthusiast leaped into tb<>
water Sunday, while seven hundred
were being baptized, and was drowned.
Reports from other fields where the
evangelist has held forth indicates
that his character is none too good.
Dr. Norris, the rampant Texas Bap
tist, cooly kills his man, while thous
ands of his fellow townsmen believe
that he perjured himself a few years
ago. The writer recalls a glance and
a twinkle of the eye of a certain popu
lar evangelist while a successful col
lection for his remuneration was being
taken, that he’ll never forget—it said
different things from what he had
been saying all during the meeting.
Yet the crowds are easily fooled; for
sake the solid ministry of their pas
tors and flock to the big tents.

FINE INSTRUMENT COMING
(From the Chapel Hill Weekly)
The University is making
preparations for the installation
of a seismograph—the instru
ment that registers the tremors
of the earth.
This means that North Caro
lina will get its own information,
first hand, about earthquakes,
instead of having to get it from
stations in the North and West.
Collier Cobb, professor of ge
ology, is a member of the Seis
mological Society of America
and for years he has looked for
ward to setting up an instrument
here. There is no University ap
propriation to cover the cost,
Out Mr. Cobb is pretty sure ht
knows where the money can bt
The seismograph that he ex
pects to have is the very fines,

is the celebrated Japanese scien
tist, Omori, and the makers art
Bausch and Lomb.
A well has been dug under tht
east end of the New East build
ing, now being remodeled for tht
geology department. The dig
gers had to go 26 1-2 feet befort
chey struck rock. A columr.
made of steel I-beams surround

rock, and on top of this columr
vvill rest the seismograph. Tht

When the diggers reached i

ground surface the water began

The reconstruction of the Nev

speed. The making of new foun

GET YOURSELF A
BRAND NEW LIVER
i How Dodson’s Liver Tone Makes Yon
L Feel the Old Liver is
[ Just off the slant of Old Piedmont
where it rolls away into the foot-miis
of South Georgia, Bud Evans makes a
good stand of cotton. A year ago-he
was too sick to even follow a plow.
His right side seemed hard, f< e ß a ®
his liver had turned to stone; belched
gas all the time; couldn’t hold up his
- head for the pain; calomel just turned
him inside out. You couldn’t imagine
anyone sicker than Bud Evans. It
just happened that an egg buyer
dropped in on him one day and says.
“What you need, Bud, is a dose of
Dodson’s Liver Tone—your liver is
baked and full up so it doesn’t work.
And so Bud got a bottle at the town
drug store for a few cents. Thfe very
first night it loosened up so much sour
bile and fermenting food that the
swelling went down, his whole system
righted itself and he was a new man
entirely before noon.
There is no question but that Dod
son’s Liver Tone will do more for bili

vithout gripe or distress, and cleans

stuff that gives you headache, nausea,
