TRIBUTE TO MAN AT HEAD OF GOVERNMENT PRESIDENT HAS NICHED HIMSKLF INERADICABLY IN PUBLIC CONFIDENCE HAS THE VISION TO SEE BENEATH THE SI AG NANCIES OF MATERIALISM. (Choree Creel in the Century.) America is a nation of incurable dreamers. The heart of the people is not found in edeers, their aspiration, are not expressed in profits, and never at any time have schemes of purely material advancement possessed the largest appeal. This is the explanation of Woodrow Wilson. . To attempt an interpretation of his hold upon the popular iminagm tion in terms of strict mentality is to commit one's self to the patent an surdity that he is the first President with brains. Utners nave matcneu him in intellectual grasp, and what sets him apart, even as it set Lincoln apart, is nothing else tnan an exa.. comprehension of passionate idealism as the animating impulse of America. Vision, spirit, ideals, without the edu afforded by these dream words Woodrow Wilson is a blank, the United States stammering and untn tellible. Democracy never has been, and never can be other than a theory of spiritual progress, and those who view it as a mere program of pros poritv place their feet in a blind ).'.; It 'niav not be denied that al'vn.-' from the first these truths have be challenged with persistency and id;.:-.

The President's Hold On His Party The Democratic representation ir Congress contains many men who are not only incapable of understanding the deeper meanings of the President, but who are constrained to invincible antagonism by years of secret service to secret masters. In numbers suffi cient to block every proposal, there are Democratic Senators and Repre sentatives who hate Woodrow Wilson and his policies, and are eager for rebellion and. attack. They stand as sured of the ardent support of at least part of what is called big busi ness and the powerful aid of a certain portion of the daily press. How- may the obedience of these men be explained except by their fear of popular wrath? That behind t?.i President, believing in him, command ing through him. they see the awan oned people of America, free at le:: from the cords of Liiliput? A con firmed idealist expressing a nation of long-rciro.- s-H idealists --in nothin. else is t'-,er any possibi t.f Woodvo- H'i'-or's re: ing atl.ievt mint. rxplanati d of am; He ha neath tl. down to ' t.ic vis; to se- "ial"rial "Criii.iuc itab! u-tivc tn d( r.iot r; ic iih'a's for ino: tnr- me"0 con.,i frton consciou- t;i 'onii'V'.l mg t'lan tloiis that, proceed thought. These have been his contributions' to the sucees-.f'.'' revolution against the sham practicability that was slo. ly destroying the creative genuis '. the American people. They are h': htrength. What has happcitt-d is Uu release of the national mind from its slavery to unrelieved materialism, ano the recovery of ancient faith in th' projectile force of spiritual truths. Under his leadership, idealism Ji -been restored to its imperative place in American life, and indispensabh standards are lifted anew. It may well be that historians cf the future will write this day dowi as one of most tremendous signifi cance to the United States. Th slightest study of human progros makes p'.ain that the things whi count ,in the evolution of civilization to higher levels are ever and always those flames of thi spirit that blav.e without regard to intellectual formu las or certainties of profit. When ha's this so-called practicality ever entertained the visions that tinn ed arid wastes into smiling orchards, spun steel gossamer across dizzy chasms, sent airships aloft, or gave new lands to the loot of civilization : When did the multiplication-table mind ever free a captive, crush an evil, liberate justice, or bless the world with music, art, and beauty ; All that is fundamentally big and tint has been the work of vissionaries who ran gauntlets of ridicule and opposi tion. In the outset every great move ment, every wonderful idea, dream, and democracy was evolved to make these dreams come true. It is to this pushed-aside, covered- over verity that Woodrow Wilson is leading us back, and it is almost as though some strange combination of unseen forces had come to his am. For purposes of striking illustration, the European conflict could not have been precipitated at a more dramatic time. What the Mexican problem wat to the United States, the Balkan prob lem was to Europe, and at the Mo ment when frank idealism has safe guarded against the horrors of need less war, European materialism has dragged Old World civilization bat to the jungle stage. Across the sea the youth and llowei of great races are being rushed U. loath. Millions of precious lives, rich in possibilties of creation and produc tion, are being blown awnv on tl i a vast destruction and tla march ol human progress ends in bloody trenches.

War is always glorious emu mo iisis oi iieau arm wounilon begin to tome, and it must be remem bered also that for years it had 1, : the custom for public men to soothe the people with the laudanum of brag and bluster. Judged by every fact in the case. Woodrow Wilson's repudiation ot Huerta was in no sense the result of a carefully reasoned determination, but unmistakably the instinctive re coil of the democratic spirit. Mentai processes are never free from th impingements of self-interest. It is only in the unthinking passions of idealism that there is found the cour age to do the right thing rather than that which is expedient and opportu nistic. , While recognition of Huerta wat, the wise course, us practicality defines wisdom, it was not the right course. The acknowledgment that he asked involved a sanction of assassination and ecquiescence in the legitimacy of murder as a substitute for constitu tional procedure. His official exist ence promised a restoration of lu tyrannies of Diaz and a continiuinet of the virtual slavery of the great mass of the Mexican people. Presi dent Wilson's address at Mobile ir moro than, any mrre explanation of his course; it is the most illuminating exposition of the spirit of tlemoc;ae .dace I.iivoin bared his soul at Gcttvs-bu-g.

' n"er condone iniquity because it is m st convenient to do so. J.f further proof were needed of Woodrow Wilson's reliance on ideal ism rather than on logic, it is rui nished by his attitude in those tryirr days when "Watchful waiting pro vided laughter for cynics and an open avenue of attack for jingoes and con- cessionairies. With almost incredible hviiocrisv, int?rvention was urged 1 the interests of civilization" by the very class most resposible for in dustrial strife in Colorado, West Vir ginia and Michigan, for the child labor horror, for housing evils, and the existence of slums. No effort of unscrupulous activity was spared and at the movement of extreme tension the blunder of an over-zeaio ad miral seemed to throw a lighted match full into the powder-barrel.

FRALEY FORMER RANDOLPH MAN WRITES ANOTHER INTERESTING LETTER ABOUT HIS ADOPTED HOME, FLORIDA HE COK RECTS SOME FALSE STATE MENTS REGARDING THIS COUNTRY Lakeland, Fla, Jan. 19, 1915, Editor The Courier: The publishing of my letter in your valuable Daner in the issue or .Nov. 19th, has caused me to try my nana again to give to your readers a few more lines from the Peninsular btate the land OT sunshine and golden or anges. It was some thirty y?ars ag' when I, a farmer boy in old Kandolrv had my first case of real Florida re. ver. une or those glowing iana com panies by chance happenetl to get my name and postonice address and mail ed me a lot of literature concerning the wonderful town of Silver I Florida. I have never forgotten hov I read everv line of their gluwi irculars, and how I longed to go that wonderful land of promise. Florida was almost a wilderness at that elate mid if perchance I hatl win, leretl to this land then and discovered the present site of this beautiful cit. f Lakeland and had the lore s to have taken up some of the home- deads then to be had for a mere s. . ind stayed with them, I now if ave been rich enoagh to have a fine vinler home in Lakeland and a line .-'mmc;' home in the mountains c Western o"th Carolina.

Some may say the moseitii ioes ar" so bad here you could m stand them. This is another mistake There are alnays some here dur: the summer, but all you need is 1 have your house screened and tl-.- you can sleep under the gentle breeze? with perfect delight. There are w wonderful springs in this country that are worth a trip of many miles to see. Sulphur Springs near Tampa, Morula, gushes up out of the ground anel tf the first leap from the spring fiow a stream of water much larger than either Thorns Creek or Second Creek, which I remember so well in my bov hood days. Also Silver Springs in about four miles of Ocala, Fiorina. This spring is the head of the Ockla waha river and steamers run from Palatka to Silver Springs and anchor in this spring. The water is said - be about 80 feet deep and so clear that you could see a ten-cent piece on tnr bottom. You might sum it up that Floritla is a good place to live and that would be right. At the presept time the war has struck us hard and business is very dull. Lots of people out of work. We would like to have all to come ami see for yourself, but would not advise you to come just now unless you have money enough to stay after you here or enough tx return if you should so elesire. My remarks are so scat tering that I would not be disappoint ed if they shoulel be cast into tl'e waste basket. I will close with best wishes to all my Tar Heel friends. T. J.

TO PROTECT CHILDREN NORTH CAROLINA PHYSICIANS WANT BETTER CHILD LABOR LAW ENDORSE 14-YEAR AGE LIMIT AND 8-HOUR DAY That the premature employment of children is injurious to the child and to aociotv. and should be forbidden to children under 14 is the opinion of over 300 physicians of North Carolina. A questionaire sent out by Mr. W. H. Swift, secretary of the North Caro lina Child Labor Committee, brought back hundreds of replies, indicating the wide-spread interest which peo ple all over the State are taking in the question of child labor reform. "345 physicians were asked to give their opinion on the vital question of whether children under 14 should be employed in mills, factories, stores or any other similar place, saia air. Swift, ''and 338 of these physicians were interested enough to reply. Near ly two-thirds of them advocate a 14 year age limit, and an even larger proportion believe that the employ ment of children under 16 shoulel be limiteel Jo 8 hours a day anel prohibit ed entirely in dangerous occupations They also recommend that power b. given to the Commissioner of Labor and Printing to enforce the chilel la bor law because a child labor law without enforcement is a 'farce an.-' a swindle.' " The replies received bv Mr. Swift reveal an interesting fact that th" abolition of child labor depends solely on intelligent public opinion. "When a physician argues that 'in regard to children under 14 years of jge. do not think it would be injuri ous tor them to work 10 or 11 hourr lav in mills, factories, etc., as i( would he cmploynent for them and possibly learn them to realize . thei' duty to their God first and then their worldly duty.' I know that be has no conception of what 11 hours a day in a cotton mill means to a 10 or 12 year olel chilel," said Mr. Swift, "an'1 that he has never seen a chilel-labor-adult, that pathetic, insufficient, igno rant remnant of a man who woulel work as a child, cheated of an educa tion and a chance for bodily develop ment. "But he ought to know. Everv rii izen in this Stale ought to know that we are employing 10,000 children tin- eler 14 in the industries of this Stat: exclusive of agriculture (according f the United States Census for lO'T and that wo are turning out 10,00o damaged citizens as a result uiv'i velonetl, unskilled, uneelucated. The leaeling physicians of North Carolina unanimously confirm this fact. Is i-. not time for us to pass a better law?"

Not the happy and sad, for the swif flying years Bring each man his laughter and each man his tears. No, the two kinds of people on eartl- that I mean Are the people who lift and the pec pie who lean. Wherever you go you will find the world s masses Are always divided in just these two classes: And oddly enough, you will find too I ween, There is only one lifter to twenty w!k lean. In which class are you? Are you eas ing the load Of overtaxed lifters who toll dow the road? Or are you a leaner, who lets others bear Your portion of labor and worry ar care? Henry P.

EASY MONEY FOR FARMERS Farmers, fresh eggs are selling in the ci'.iis at 50 to 60 cents a dozen. If any resident kicks, his grocer tells him that the prices askeel leave only a fair prolit. He also tells the city resilient that if he will accept storage eggs, they will cost him only "2 cents a dozen. It is aelmitted that these eggs have been in storage since last spring . So the city man. with vis ions of stale eggs for breakfast, pays the 50 or (JO cents and takes it out in cussing the farmer. What part of this 50 i-ents does the farmer If he gets less than 35 cents it is his own fault. Any farmer or any mem ber of any farmer's family olel enough to read and write can build up a mar ket for every egg that can he spared from the farm and cair get higher prices for the hen-fruit than any coun try egg buyer will pay. Eggs can and are being shipped safely by par cel post every day. If the farmer will write to the postmaster of the nearest city the postmaster will supply him with a list of prospective customer. The United States Bureau of Agricul ture or the Postmaster General will supply him with pamphlets telling all about how the eggs should be packed. If the farmer is willing to meet the city buyer half way he can build up cash business that will mean a coj. stant income. Later the trade can he extenel to butter, home-made cheese, early vegetables anel so on down the line. Get busy; farmei, farmer's wife, farmer's sons ami farmer's daughters. There's money waiting to be maele if you will go af ter it. KEEP IT HANDY FOR RHEUMA TISM No use to spuirm ana wince' and try to wear out your Rheumatism. It will wear you out instead. Apply some Sloan's Liniment. Need not rub it in just let it penetrate all through the affected parts, reiieve the sore ness and draw the pain. You get ease at once and feel so much better you want to go right out and tell other sufferers about Sloan's. Get a bottle of Sloan's Liniment for 25 cents of any druggist and have it in the house against Colds, Sore and Swollen Joints, Lumbago, Sciatica and like ail ments.
