them with a large stock of hardware;
the second story front was divided
into offices and rented to Dr. J. D.

united under a single banner and pre

A campaign in which there will be- no

simply Democrats. A united party
with factionalism eliminated, all work

MR. i.V'NK RUSH DEAD
ONE OF ASHEhv OLDEST
CITIZENS DIED DDENLY
MONDAY WAS FOUNO LYING
ON GROUND IN A DYING CON
DITION Lying near the old livery stable
building near the old court house
place, Mr. k. Frank Rush was found
Monday morn.r.g in a dying condition.
Mr. Rush roomed in a room in front
of the Ross and Rush building
and it is supposed that he str.rted
some time during the night to his
house near by. He was found about
six o'clock by his wife who had start
ed to milk. He only lived an hour af
ter being carried to the house. Mr.
Rush is a native of the county and has
lived in Asheboro nearly all his life.
For many years he was engaged im
the livery business. He was one of
Asheboro's oldest citizens, and is sur
vived by a wife and three children.
They are: Mrs. J. A. York, of Ashe
boro; Miss Rosa Rush, of Wilming
ton; and Mr. Zeb Rush, now a student
at the University of North Carolina.
The funeral was held from the M.
E. church yesterday by Rev. C. L.
Whitaker after which interment was
in the cemetery at the church. Mr.
Rush's pastor, Rev. Mr. Thompson,
was attending conference in Shelby.
Mr. Rush was a good citizen and his
death is a distinct loss to the town.
The Courier extends sympathy to the
On Monday evening at six o'clock at
the home of Mrs. Benson Parker, at
Trinity, Mrs. Kate Parker Harris was
married to Mr. Swaim, of Liberty, in
the presence of several friends. Rev.
A. S. Raper officiated. They left by
automobile immediately after the cer
emony for High Point and from there
to Liberty, their future home. Mrs.
Swaim has many friends here where
she has lived since early childhood
who wish for her much happiness.
Mr. A. S. Raper left for Shelby last
Tuesday morning for the -M. E. Con

Baptists Not Liable to Commit Tb
Sin of Discrimination.
(From Charity and Children)
The .Methodist Conference and the
Presbyterian General Assembly have
put the ban on using 'tobacco among
the preachers and hereafter young
men who are candidates for the mm
istry will take duf notice and govern
themselves accordingly.. But if -to
baeco is not good for the ministry
neither is it good for the laity, and
the brethren ought to have passed a
prohibition law that applies to all
alike. Tobacco will have to follow
whiskfi'. Both are injurious a.nd the
sentiment agaimit them is steadily
growing. After all, the most power
ful influence against any evil if public
sentiment. Nothing was said -or done
about tobacco in the Southern Baptist
Convention and f .any thing: sb ever
said it will apply to all the members
of the body alike. It would sever do
for a Baptist bod? to single ut any
class of its membership and give them
or dew that do not apply to .Hi. In
deed no Baptist fcody has any right
to give orders at iall except, u local
Baptist church. The convention could
do -nothing ;more lhan sugjratt, and
its suggestions moat not discriminate
in favor of or against any class of its
members. It is Htaely that am anti
tobaeca -resolution will be- presented
at -the next session. Notwithstanding
the argument offerea 'by Dr. Lyon
in the .General Aswembly that the

work than waging a warfare -vn to

DOCTORS DECLARE AGAINST
ALCOHOL AS A STIMULANT
The New York Sun say that in the
International Congress of Fhysiothcr
aphy recently convened in Berlin
"Prof. Ewald, perhaps the most emi
nent clinical teacher in the Berlin Uni
versity, said that he had reached thr
conclusion that in no infectious dis-.
ease has the value or aiconoi been
proved and that it diminishes the nat

There is a doctor in Charlotte who
has consistently held to this view for
a number of years and he is seeing
other doctors coming to his ideas. The
Sun holds that Pro. Ewald s conten
tion confirms what every clear-vision-
ed physician of experience has observ
ed at the bedside, that whenever alco
hoi is administered it handicaps the
patient, because it lowers the blood
pressure; it is a temporary spur to
the failing heart, with a subsecjuent
depression to which many a sick man
has succumbed without realization of
the cause of "heart failure."
One who has not seen the purple
hued complexion, sodden features and
perspiring relaxed skin of an intoxi
cated man needs no medical training
to know that here is a case of com
plete relaxation, the body presenting
as sad evidence of crippling as does
the mind. If this result may ensue
in an individual who is in health, how
much more seriously must the vital
powers be depr eciated in diseases in
which other poisons are already play
ing havoc with the heart and nervous

SCORED HIGH ONLY A FEW
WER$ FOUND WITH PHYSICAL
The Better Babies Contest which
was held at the court house in Ashe
boro under the auspices of the Wo
man's Club, was a great success.
More than fifty babies were examin
ed. They were from all parts of the
county. On acount of the cooler
weather six that had been entered did
not get here but some came that had
not been entered. According to the
score cards of the Woman's Home
Companion which were used in scor
ing, no children could be entered un
der six months of age but several
mothers brought in younger children
and they were examined but not scor
ed. The same with children above
the age limit of three years. There
were many persons present who had
no children but who were interested in
children. The scores will be complet
ed and announcement made next week
of how the children scored. The doc
tors who did the examining compli
mented the children of the county, as
a whole. There were a few who
showed physical defects. When 'the

INCOMPLETE RETURNS SHOW
MAJORITY AGAINST THEM
RANGING FROM 6,000 16,000
A dispatch from Raleigh says that
none of the ten constitutional amend
ments voted on in North Carolina on
November 3 have passed, according to
almost complete returns made to the
Secretary of State.
With 72 of the 100 counties complete
the majority against the amendments
range from 6,000 to 16,000.
It is said that the returns from the
other counties cannot materially
change the final result.
The majority against the amend
ment proposing to substitute the
phrase "War Between the States" for
reference to the civil war as the "War
of the Rebellion," has been voted
down by 6..000 majority, the returns
That proposing to revise and fix the
tax rate now has a majority against
it of 16,000.
The Cleveland Star the past week
did a pretty good job of gopher dig
ging. There are others. In past
months the Democratic party of
North Carolina has permitted some
interloping that was brazen, to say
the least. It has been given to en
tirely too much political flirtation, and
has countenanced too much abuse of
its party leaders by those who were
not given space alongside the pie
counter, or whose inends could not
find room there. That was at the bot
torn of the only discontent that has
been in manifestation, and some Dem
ocrats showed strong symptoms of
having been contaminated with the
old Republican idea of politics that
no man can be in politics for pnev
pie, but tor reward in patronage
alone. lh.e mam body of the Democ
racy of the state is of the Democratic
faith from principle, and its stead
fastness t principle is generally of
vindication at each recurring count of
the votes. In the coming fray the
bearers of the party standards should
permit no strange devices to be at
tached to the flag. Charlotte Observ
WELL SPENT SABBATHS
Who can compute the wealth of well
spfJ, , Sabbaths fifty-two golden op
portunities right from the hand of
God, each year? Wnat shall we do
with them? Can we he trusted with
such untold wealth? Would we poi
or waste or mar them? Both in the
house of God and in the quiet of our
families or rooms we may learn of
God, may build up the nhvioal. men
tal and spiritual, and go forth into the
new week girded anew for the tusk
the trial and the temptation.
These heavenly gifts are cuvs to
lift ns up toward that which is holi
est and best. Dare we seek less for
ourselves than God would in His
love and wisdom plan for us ?
Best of all, each well spent Sabbath
as well as every other well spent day
strengthens our love and taste both
for the sacred day and for the things
that are lovely, true and inspiring,
Dr. Chester H. Lord, the distin
guished editor, in an address before
the Editorial Association of Hartford,
made some wholesome remarks on the
moral dangers of modern journalism
"Our discussions are oa the ever
lasting sex question; many of our
plays have excited public indignation;
some of our picture shows have been
suppressed by the police. Our dances
aave been denounced by the ciiurcn
and by the few old-fashioned mothers
who remain, and the same mothers
have proclaimed against the clothing
of the women as beine demoralizing,
Nine-tenths of the novels -now writ
ten are sa-called sex novels, in which
sex relations are described and dis
cussed with a freedom that would not
have been tolerated fifty years ago,
and that must have then excluded
from public libraries and homes. The
three novels by British writers that
attracted most attention during the
winter were conspicuous examples of
this modern literature. The best sell
er in America was an attack on relig
ion and an indirect plea for socialism.
Mr. Lord puts half the blame on the
people whose ideals have been lower
ed, and who are so incessant in their
demands for the injurious papers and
books. He contrasts present condi
tions with the high standards and
cleanly literature of fifty years airo.
Whatsoever things are true, whatso
ever things are honest, whatsoever
things are of good report; if there be
any virtue, if there be any praise,
think on these things. Phil. 4:8.

THE COURT OF HONOR
Home's the court of honor
Home's the high estate
Of the life that's lowly,
Of the love that's great;
The little path and all,
With the lilacs in the garden
And the sunflower on the wall; ,
Home, the court of honor,
Poise and power of life
Beyond the hum of battle,,
The burden and the strife.
Decked with dew and daisies,
Piled and simple things,
Here the soul of beauty
At the window sings;
Here the unshamed lily
Climbs beside the rose;
Here no gruesome shadow
Life's clean action throws;
Home, the court of honor,
The lure that leads all men
To love of nobler living
And living love again.
Home's the court of honor,
- Real and hale and true;
The lure of lips of loving,
And eyes that shine for you;
The light, the dream, the comfort,
The circling arm of trust,

That lifts us from the dust;
Home, the court of honor,
The center and the core,
Of !!."? thivuj-h love while livin
And rest when life is o'er.
