THE WAY OF A FAST YOUNG
When young U. N. Huggins of
Atlanta receutly wis caught up with
n his dealings from his employer,
he ascribed his down full to his weak
ness for wine and silk underwear as
he termed it. The shortage aggregat
ed several thousand dollars. When
placed in jail he attempted to com
mit suicide by severing the arteries of
his wrists with a piece of broken
glass. He said his salary was very
email, $85 a month.
We clip from an Atlanta paper
the fo!lj.ving interview with this ex
travagant and gay young man:
"Well," said his questioner.
coullen't a young man with no
incumbrance live comfortably
on that amount?"
"I really don't know," said
the prisoner "I diden't try it
long enough to lind out.'"
"What was the cause of your
t'HA M I'AtiX K A XI) SII.K.
"You may say that my trou
ble w:is occasioned by my weak
ness for champagne and silk un
derwear. This very brief expla
nation will suggest a wide range
for expenditures. Why, I have
often found it desirable to spend
a hundred dollars in an evening.
Occasionally this amount v:ould
last me several days.
"I never gambled in my life
and don't care much for the
'song' side of life. Hut I do like
to gather a crowd of friends
about me and open champague.
The popping of corks is the
sweetest music to my ears.
"I suppose you intended to
repay the money you appropri
ated to your own uses?"
HIS CYNICAL RETORT.
"Of course, we all do. Did
yon ever hear of an embezzler
who did not expect to make
good his shortage?''
As he delivered this, rather
sarcastic reply Huggins smiled
but his affected indifference did
not hide the mental anguish
from which he was suffering.
The deep lines about his face,
the dark rings round his eyes and
his faltering voice told more
eloquently than words how keen
ly he felt his humiliation and
how deeply he regretted his

.BETTER EDUCATIONAL AD
The cause of education has pros
ipered in North Carolina since the
advent of the Democratic party to
Ipower. The last General Assembly
appropriated $50,000 to the estab
'.liehment of rural high schools, the
State to duplicate any amount from
$250 "to $500 to support each
school. There may be as many as
ifoar such schools established in
each countv. Such schools must
have as many as three teachers.
This will give many children in the
country the superior advantages en
joyed by children living in the large
towns and cities. The Legislature
has been liberal in making these
The Raleigh Evening Times re
f erring to the educational revival in
the State says:
Previous Legislatures have great
ly assisted and stimulated the cause
of education by making provisions
for the establishment of rural libra
ries, the State furnishing one half
the amount necessary to equip &
email library: and by lending money
for building purposes in districts
which have voted a special school
And all the time the cause of ed
ucation bos prospered. The boys
ana girls in even the remotest dis
tricts are given an opportunity to
acquire learning instead of being
compelled to grow up in miserable
ignorance as they were even within
-the decade. The value of .an intel
ligent citizenship cannot be estimat
ed, and that is the reward of the
State for the expenditure and care
for the cause of education.
DR. BATTLE TO WRITE HIS
Dr. K. P. Battle, who has for
more than half a century been con
nected with the State University
as instructor, professor, or president
of the institution, and who has for
several years been professor of
History, has announced his intention
to rttire not to idleness, but to com
plete his History of the University
which he has bee:; at work on for
several years, aud to write a history
of North Caroliua.
An amount of $1,1)00 a year from
the Carnegie fund has been granted
to Dr. Battle. It is to be hoped
that he may live many years to write
such a history as is worthy of this
great State which he loves so well.

A Parting Salute From Judge Attains.
As ft parting salute to former Sen
ator But'er, Judge Adams, the Re
publican State chairman, has hauded
o it the following:
"Yes, I have seen it and will treat
hia statements with that indifference
which they and their author deserve.
In an underhanded and unmanly
way he opened the attack on me, and
indirectly on the Republican party
of the State. He has been forced
into the open and it seems I have
pierced his' Judas Iscariot hide. I
congratulate the Republicans of the
State that we are at last rid of this
pestiferous body of death, and we
may now go forward and build up
the party on right lines. We will not
be further troubled with him in
North Carolina or elsewhere. The
body is now ready for interment
and nothing more is to be done
except a plain slab should be erected
at the grave, bearing the name,
nothing more, so as to remind the
passers-by that the path of treachery,
duplicity and ingratitude leads to
the Dead Sea, where there is no life
and no outlets."

in command at Washington so far
as patronage matters are concerned,

out the punishment to this Jclass of
offenders. We believe they have
been, as a rule, too merciful to this
class of law breakers. Had the law

We know that so long as pistols
exist and is men have the desire to
carry them the custom cannot be en

to put a stop to the a1 most universal
display of leniency toward this class
of criminals the time would soon
come when the carrying of a pistol
