HEALTH BILL KILLED
North Carolina to be Recognized as
A Second Class Registration State
The second most important health
hill to come before the present Gener
al Assembly was killed in the House
last Friday. The object of the bill
was to make it possible for our State
to be recognized by the United States
Government as a registration Stat.
The storv is as follows: The last
General Assembly passed what is
known as the Model Law for regis
tering the births and deaths with the
addition of what appeared to be an
insignificant amendment. To this a
mendment the federal authorities take
strong exception and refuse to recog
nize North Carolina as a registration
State along with some twenty-five or
more other States in the Union.
At the present session, a bill was
introduced to repeal this amendment.
Largely because the significance oi
this amendment was not understooo.
the House declined to repeal it, fear-
that it might possibly work some
hardship in rural districts. Experi
ence in twenty-seven otner registra
tion States, however, does not indi
cate that such amendment is necessa
ry or that its absence works a hard
ship v ith any one. This means that
while North Carolina has a registra
tion lav on her books which cost tv
State Sld.Of.O a year, her results wil'
n.-t be recognised by the government.
In the eyes of the world outside Oi
North Carolina, she will be recogn'v
ed as a second rate State, with anc
yet without a Vital Statistics la'..
We in North Carolina feel absolute
ly confident that the deu h rate :n .
number of counties, a.-; for instance
Robeson, Nash, Buncombe, and t
other mountain counties, is lar below
the average, in the United States and
if our figures were accepted by the
federal authorities, it would be a
splendid advertisement for North Car
olina and be the means of bringing
here many desirable people not only
from northern States but from Euro
pean countries. However, without
the sanction of the federal authori
ties, our figures will of necessity be
looked upon with supposition, no mat
ter how accurate tney migm oe or
what healthful localities they might

A" BASHFUL YOUNG MAN"
Has A Terrible Time When He Gets
A bashful young man near here re
cently got married and a few day
afterwards he delivered himself thus
to a sympathizing friend:
"You know how bashful I am," he
murmured. "The girls just worry the
life out of me. When I stood up to
tret married they all giggled and when
the minister asked me if I would take
this woman to be my wedded wife,
I said, "purty well, thankee," and
when he pronounced us man and wife
and said, "what Uod has Joined to
gether let no man rip apart." I bawl
ed. Oh! it was horrible! But that is
nothing to what's to come. "'Bout 11
o'clock that night the old man sez he,
"Jim your room is at the head of the
stairs." I was so skeered that when I
tried to stand, my legs got tangled
up and I fell over the dog and got bit
in three places. I waited until every
body had gone to bed and crawled up
stairs like a spoon thief. I was afraid
to go in so I sot on the stair steps
and shivered. "It's no use," see 1'
"What's got to be have got to be," So
I took off my clothes in the dark and,
shut my eyes tight then made a break
for the door. I found the door after
spooing around for a time and pulled
the cover clear up over my head and
laid on the front rail all night long.
In the morning I peeped through my
fingers to see if I could dress before
my wife woke up, and if she wasn't
in bed with the old man and old wom
an! Oh, I can't come back, I cr.n't.

Process of Milking.
I do not know that the process of
milking has ever been described. The
forefinger first clasps the upper part
of the teat, and then the middle, ring
and little fingers, in rapid succession,
so as to drive the milk before them
through the orifice. The knack is
rather difficult to acquire, and at first
very wearying to the hands, though
this soon pas8es.--From "A Farmer's

Trinidad's Mangrove Trees.
The mangrove in'e, which is found!
In Trinidad, h:u- many peculiarities.
For one thing, its seeds germinate on
the tranches, and when the shoots are
considerably grown they fall oft and
tak root, in the mud. As the you&g
tree grows It sends out f.'esh root
from its trunk and lower branches,
until at last the tree seem! to be sup
ported by a network of roots, or comr
plicated series of arches. In the midst
of which crabs, aquatic birds and la
sects take up their abods.
Normality tho Essential.
The normal man is the one who
succeeds in life. He must have im

and industry, the power to concentrate
as well as intelligence. But first of all
he must be normal, moderate fu his
habits, careful of his health, careful
of his digestion and of his nerves.
