A Sensible Charge Those who listened to Judge Wilson WarKck’s charge to the grand jury Mon day morning were strongly impressed by his straight-forward assertions regarding court dockets. The young jurist declared that too many cases growing out of malice and spite are crowding our court dockets and that taxpayers' money is being spent to no purpose at all in the trial of such cases. Grand juries, he declared, should pay no attention to many petty and trivial cases such as consume the time of many courts. Here is a condition not peculiar to Wilkes. Court dockets all over NoidJi Car olina are clogged with “you indict me and m indict you” cases. And most of the time, the spiteful neighbor knows enough, however trivial, to get a warrant and a bill of indictment. Doubtless many cases on the docket of Wilkes Superior court could be nol press ed without serious reflection upon the law ■enforcement agencies and without impair ment to public faith in the courts. And we might add, that this course could be taken with a consequent saving of con siderable proportions to the taxpayers. Judge Warlick is making a splendid im pression on his first official visit to Wilkes. Altliough a young man, his four years on the bench have shown him to be among the ablest judges in the state. Look Out For Carbon Monoxide We have seldom heard of a more dis tressing accident than the death of nine Dartmouth students and their pet dog, as they were sleeping peacefully in their fraternity 'club house on the college cam pus. Something went wrong with the fur nace, and they were killed in their sleep, everyone who was in the building, by the deadly cailxjn monoxide gas. "This is a fonn cf poisoning which is becoming much too common. More than 60,000 persons were' killed last year by catbon monoxide. Some ware overcome while in their cars, left running in closed garages.-Many died from sleeping in closed rooms with a gas fire going. There were comparatively few who met their death from the gases escaping from a fur nace, as jn the Dartmouth case, but enough to make it seem desirable to utter a warning to everybody who depends upon coal stoves or coal furnaces to look to their heating plants. Many people have the idea that they can always smell the gas in time to open a door or window. And many have met their deaths because they did not realize that the poisonous carbon monoxide which'is given off whenever coal or pe troleum products are burned, is odorless. Its presence cannot be detected by the ■ nose. The unpleasant odor of coal-gas or -the exhaust fumes of an automobile mis- ,0 leads folk into thinking that unless they smell something there is no danger. Nbbody can smell carbon monoxide. There is no waniing but the sudden col- lapse and speedy death of the victim. Most of these deaths occur in winter, when furnaces are being forced and win- ^ dows are kept closed, when it seems to be . J easier to start up the car before opening ^ the garage doors. There is only one way ’ sto prevent it, and that is never to run a cak in- an enclosed space unless there is a door or window wide open; never to enter OP aieep in a room or a house unless cer tain that the furnace flues are properly ^v^xting and the deeping room is well v«iti6ted.

Maybe, it*s a little plain-spoken, hut whether one agrees or not, the arti^e deds'vdth its subject in a atndght-forward, common-ser^^^way. Dr. Gaines says: ‘1 am a believer in educatitm---the kind that leads to int^dgent activity for the betterment of our race. We use intelli gent in the production of our livestock, —even in the growing of mr crops. Why not in bringing up families that ean be provided for? ' "The law in most states makes it a crime—to furnish any swrt of contracep tive—and call it that^to the wo^ half- distracted mother of eUht or nine chil dren, who has not the strength to proper ly care for them ... a crime that could draw—imprisonment. Any kind of inter ference with gestation—pregnancy—is manslaughter. And, who can deny it? Yet —what of bringing an unlimited flock of children into a starving world--wreck- ing the life of a poor mother? ft is noth ing short of a problem! ‘This same world will laud to the high heavens a big military rooster—^will cover him with medals of distinction—for lead ing twenty-five thousand grown-up sons of mothers onto a battlefield, and have them shot to pieces by the truck-load! That’s not “manslaughter”—or is it? “It’s a strange world, viewed from any angle . . • with codes and statutes—enact ments that require acres of buildings for their storing—when the Ten Command ments would answer every purpose! ‘Yet, birth control is a serious matter, if in the hands of the ignorant Sometimes I think—if we gave it half the study that we have given to whiskey, we would have more and happier mothers—^and brighter, better-raised children . . . The average man has a great deal of “hog” and selfish appetite about him ... So much of birth control depends on him; just as he is the chief delinquent in the lack of it... We must educate—and live up to humane principle.” Sunday School' Lesson By REV. CHARLES E.

For the enllKhtment of those few who do not know BnxS) they are asked to recall many of the exeit- iog weetem tUina which they have seen In which a certain youthtnl actor emulated the star In feats of daring horsemanship and thrilling advebture. In aU. probshillty, that actor was Boss Barton. ' * The Liberty 'Theatre manage ment is fortunate to be able to present thia popular screen fav orite to local audiences and at such reasonable prices. Not only has Bum Barton played with the screen’s most popular stars In feature pictures, but be'has co- starred with many of them in excitif^ serial stories. Thrill^, action, excitement, adventidre—. all that go to make up an enter tainment film—are as synony mous with. the name of Buss Barton as they are with such well known players as Tom Mix, Tim McCoy and Buck Jones. He has all the attributes which have proven so successful in the ca reers of these older stars—the only difference If any being in years of experience. Accompanied by a group of artists whose j knowledge of western life, ob tained through actual experience, | entitles them to the appellation of genuine cowgirls and cowboys. Buzz will entertain his audience with a sample of life in the wide open spaces. The Buzz Barton company has proven one of the most successful attractions now touring the country.

C. 13. PARABLES OF THE KINGDOM Lesson for March 11th. Matthew, chap. Golden Text: Isaiah 9:7. The characteristic method of Jesus was to herald His message in the form of vivid pic tures, or parables. In this way He guaranteed that the gospel would be surely remembered, for pictures always remain in the mind more easily than argument or exposition devoid of imagery. ‘‘Truth embodied in a tale” is a vt ry effective form of instruction. In the beautiful chapter chosen for our lesson there are eight striking parables. An entire period could be devoted to each of these appeal ing stories. Two of them, the parable of the sower, and the parable of the tar's, are full length sketches. The others are vignettes merely. Suppose we look at four of these miniatures. Consider the parable of the must^ seed. Here we have a prophecy of the expansion of the divine Kingdom. The mustard seed, proverbially the tiniest of all grains, becomes, at last, a mighty tree, its splendid branches lifted heaven ward for the refuge of birds and the comfort of man. So is it with the commonwealth of God. The life of Jesus was obscure. Few heard His gracious but urgent gospel. At the time of His cruel death His movement was a mere speck upon the horizon of men’s interests. But look at it now! Through the long centuries it has gath ered to itself many riches and peoples until it stands before us today, a great treasury of thought and life. The parable of the leaven illustrates the per meating quality of God’s Realm. Note that leav en is inward, unseen, and silent. So the dirine kingdom advances in the inner hearts of men, as an invisible, quiet force. Shunning notoriety, statistics, and trade returns, it makes' its pres ence felt unobtrusively, calmly, without the blare of trumpets. But its influence is none the less effective!. The paraWes of the hidden treasure and the pearl of great price illustrate the surpassing worth of the heavenly commonwealth. In both cases there is exultant joy over the possession y of wealth of supreme value.
