Mike Diiocanshield would like to ask

wishes to take a look at the books of the
county treasurer, to do so at onee. They

all doubters have not already looked at

Well, aon aint it a pity that Mister Bla"k
burn had to run to Washington to keep out
of the way of the officers? People oughtenl
to he bard on him. for he dident get the
support of the Republican machine, and
some do not think he is bright anyway. He
is like some other little hollow heads he
tried to make it appear that the Democrats
had done worong and he failed to make good
hiit claims. Its mighty hard to make
North Carolinians forget the two advents
of the Republican party in North Carolina
when the carpet-baggers commenced com
ing, and the times from 1896 to 1900.
Uncle Pat, did you know that the Re
publicans elected Mister Adams as United
States' Senator? They gave him about a
dozen votes! early every Republican in
the Caw-cuss at Kaleigh voted for him.
They helled tiieir caw-cuss behind closed
doors, and wouldent let many people know
what they wan a doing. I dont blame em,
I'd be ashamed of it, too .'
The Governor of South Dakota has just
said in a message to the Legislature of bis
State that it was a dirty trick for Mary Ann
and Dan to trick his state into collecting
repudiated bonds from North Carolina
especially when the bonds -were issued by
carpet-baggers just - after the Civil War.
Any state that fool with carpet-bagger and
traitors will always have trouble. A carpet
baeaer is a man (or a piece of one) that has
run out of business in his own state, and
cone to another state to try to run things.
A traitor or scallawag is a man or some
other two-legged animal that takes up with
a carpet-bacKer. J lie people of tins state
dont want any more of ifary Ann or Dan's
kind. The South has suffered awfully
from fan hlesg, disloyal, false-hearted, trait
orous, perfidious, deceitful men, whose main
business has been to run down, defame,
malign, decry, villify, slander, misrepresent
and abuse our own native men who have
served the public honorably, fuch has
been the greediness, rapaciousuess a d in -sa
iable thirst for office and a chmicR to
plunder the public that they have never

and make false insinuations about their

Macadam Road Maintenance.
Neglect to properly maintain a mac
adam road after it has been built Is
one of the worst enemies of road re
form of which we have knowledge,
says Good Roads Magazine. Many
cases are ou record of where a stone
road has gone to pieces within a very
short time after Its completion owing
to negligence in giving the matter of
repair due attention. Experience shows
that a road once properly built can be
maintained Indefinitely by making
prompt repair as soon as a weak spot
Is discovered. Tbe practice In Euro
pean countries could well be followed
In this country. A road requires care
and attention for Its upkeep the same
as a railroad track. Tbe original cost
of a macadam road Is too great to al
low It to go to pieces within a year or
so and then practically rebuild It Most
failures are due to the fact that 60 ade
quate provision for repairs has been
made by the county or state. Since
roads cannot take care of themselves,
they must be looked after constantly If
rebuilding Is to be avoided.

rainfalls and the consequent muddy

What To Do.

pain in the back, kidneys, liver, bladder
and everv part of the urinary passage.
It corrects inability to now water

during the day, and to get up many
times'during the night. The mild and
