What is a Democrat? •'Democracy is a sentiment not to be appalled, corrupted, or compromised; it knows no baseness; it cowers before no danger; it oppresses no weak ness. It is the sole conserva tor of liberty, labor and proper ty. It is the sentiment of equal rights, of equal obligations—the very spirit of liberty itself per vading the land." —Bill Allen. School Fund. The Constitution, Act IX, Section o, appropriates all fines for violation of the criminal laws of the State for establish ing and maintaining free public schools in the several counties— whether the fines are for viola tion of town ordinances, made misdemeanors by Sec. 3820 of the Code, or other criminal statutes. Where such fines are collected through the Mayor of a town, by virtue of his author ity as Justice of the Peace, they are to be accounted for to the Board of Education. These fines cannot be used for any other purpose whatso ever. It is the duty of the Board of Education to see to it that these fines are faithfully appropriated for maintaining free public schools in the coun ty. Magistrates, Clerk of Su perior Court and other officers in Harnett county into whoso hands these fines have been paid, be prepared to give an account of your stewartsliip in this matter. J. D. EZZELL, Chairman Board of Education of Harnett County. What Good Roads Do For a Community. Bad roads constitute the greatest drawback to rural life, and for the lack of good roads the farmers suffer more than any class. Those localities where good roads have been built are becoming richer, more prosperous and more thickly settled, while those which do not possess these advantages in transportation are either at a standstill or are becoming poor er and more sparsely settled. If these conditions continue, fruit ful farms may be abandoned and rich lands go to waste. Life on a farm often becomes, as a result of "bottomless roads," isolated and barren of social enjoyment and pleasures, and country people in some communities suffer such great disadvantage that ambition is checked, energy weakened and industry paralyzed. Good roads, like good streets, make habitation along them most desirable ; they economize time, add force in transporta tion of products, reduce wear and tear on horses, vehicles and harness, and enhance the mar ket value of real estate. They raise the value of farm land and farm products and tend to beau tify the country through which they pass ; they faciliate rural mail delivery and are a potent aid to education, religion and sociability. Charles Sumner once said: ' 'The road and the school master are the two most important agents in advancing civilization." The difference between good and bad roads is often equivo lent to the difference between profit and loss. Good roads have a money value to farmers as well as a political and social value, and leaving out conven ience, comfort and social and refined influences which good roads always enhance, and look ing at them only from the "al mighty dollar" side, they are found to pay handsome divi dends each year. People generally are beginiug to realize that road building is a public matter, and that the best interests of agriculture and the American people as a whole demand the construction of good roads, and that money wisely expended for this pur pose is sure to return.—Greens boro Telegram.

Prince the county of Harnett has lost one of its most honorable and useful citizens, and it is due his memory that the public attention shall be drawn to some of the events of lii 3 long and honorable life and to some of the public services he rendered to his Country while he was with us. This duty I have taken upon myself, as I knew him well, and to know him was to love and respect him, for he was verily a man in whom there was no guile. Capt. Prince was born July 2, 1832, and died on July 23, 1901, and hence was 70 years and 21 days of age when he was called to his reward. In early life he had the benefit of a good English education, hav ing been a pupil uudei my father Gen. A. D. McLean in his school at Summerville in this county. Capt. Prince's father died when he was a mere youth, and Gen. McLean was appointed his guardian at the request of his near relatives. This education fitted him well for the arduous and responsible duties of his busy life, for from early manhood he was the ad viser of his neighbors in all their business transactions, for they had implicit confidence, not only in his personal integ rity but in his judgment and business sagacity. After the death of the Hon. George W. Pfcgram the mantal of that man of God fell upon the shoulders of Capt. Prince, and most wor thily did he wear it, for his counsels were those of fence and good will among men. Captain Prince AY as married in 1807 to Elizabeth Rollins. There were born to them seven children, five of whom survive him—three sons and two daugh ters —children whose lives and characters bear the impress of their early christian training, for how true it is, that "as the tree is bent, the tree is inclined." Captain Prince held many positions of honor and trust at the hands of his confiding coun trymen. Before the war when quite a youug man he was elected captain of a volunteer militia company, and took great pride in uniforming and drilling his citizen soldiery. When the War between the States came on he was among the brave and fearless sons of the Old North State that went forth to battle for the Cause of the South. After the war and when civil government was per mitted to take the place of mili tary rule Captain Prince was elected Justice of the Peace or his section of the county, and served in this capacity al most continuously till his death. He was elected county com missioner for several terms and was chairman of the Board for four years. In 1891 he was elected to the House of Repre sentatives from Harnett county, and served with marked faith fulness and efficiency. Indeed in every position to which he was called he was always a conservative an d faithful public servant. Our county can poorly afford to lose such a son. When about thirty years of age Captain Prince connected himself with the Methodist church and was one of its most honored and trusted members. He performed his duties as an officer of the church with t.'ie same unwavering fidelity that characterized him in all the re lations of life. A good man is gone; let us emulate his example, for he was one of nature's noblemen ; faithful to God, to Country and to himself. "His life was and the elements do mixed in liim that Nature might stand lip And say to all the world. This was man." D. H. MCLEAN. Captured in Sampson. A man named Sion Williford, who has been living near Sa vannah, Ga., for several years, got into a difficulty out there, in which he shot another man, however the shot did not prove fatal. Williford ran away from Georgia and came to Sampson several weeks ago. A few days ago Williford was arrested and placed in Clinton jail, from there he was taken to Savannah where he will be tried at the November term of court for an assault with an intent to kill. Hon. D. H. McLean has been employed to defend Williford I'm going to offer for the next few weeks. Special in ducements in Ready Mixed Paints.

Address, F. P. VENABLE, President.! Chapel Hill, N. C^ Rural Free Delivery First. It is estimated that the sav ing effected by withdrawing the privilege of second class post age rates from publications and periodicals that are not legiti mately eutitled to them will amount to twenty million dol lars a year. Upon the basis of such saving a movement is on ; foot to reduce letter postage to 'one cent. Of course such a re duction would be hailed with I pleasure if it could be g'.ven af ter furnishing necessary quick mail facilities to all sections of the country. But there ought to be no reduction in letter post age until the rural free delivery is extended to take in every possible neighborhood in the United States. If twenty mill ions is saved by the new regula tions affecting second class mat ter, that money ought to be ap plied to extending the rural free delivery. It is the vital need of the times and the people in town and country alike prefer to have these routes honeycomb the United States to any reduc tion in letter postage. This is certainly true in North Caroli na which as yet has only eleven routes when it ought to have not less than five hundred to serve the various communities now having only the star route weekly mails.—News & Ob server.
