T j much quoted campaigner of
Gee iia Ham, not the son of Noah,
b.,i plain-tpokeu Ham of the
Cocker State is about to see his
' v; ;:-e term, "Snollygoster," prove

ixuuLced that this word is to get
inr-) the dictionary, the author of it

Many have regarded Ham the
-iaddy of the word ; bat this is chal
lenged, by those better read and
1 .ardl Different newspaper corres
pondents have throwr light on the
abj-ct each having a different
coiner of the word.
Perhaps the best authority is At
torney Theodore F Kluttz, of Salis
burv. He vrites the Charlotte Ob
server a card, u which he recalls
.bo fact that Gen. James Madison
L:ach used "Snollygoster" at least
tventy years before 1892, when Ham
r.Ie h.'s . an ol it. Speaking of
Gjli. Leach, Mr. Klut'z says :
"lie -vas wont to speak of certain
-hiaee of the population, as divided
::to Suollygosters, Swashbucklers,
-Biink r.s and HoraeEaters.
if, as stated,-the first named vrO
is ubout to go mio the recognized
obulary of Americanisms, the
hstiuguished gentleman above
-aui d should not be cheated out of
the credit of its parentage, or at
least, of its Jong and popular use,"
We remember the use of it rs
early a 4 IS 38 the late Col. J as. W
T ocg h ivlng Ued the word, "Snolly
goater,'' in our presence and we re
airinter the feeling it produced; but
Col. L::;g did not pose as the autnor.
All thid is right the word lus a
aiusicu', rifts-shot sound about it,
but aside from this it is a mighty
poor word. If, however, it is to get
into the dictionary, let us see tbat
North Carolina gets the credit of the

1 vi3t mm. The Governor
I ''Ohio has lost one of its noblest
citizens. Allen G Thurnmn died at
nn.k to.dnv. fit hiii heme ia tbe
citv of Columbus, at the nue'aga of
82. He waa a statesman whoe
sturdy integrity and exalted abilities
were recognized, not only in his own
State, but in every part of the United
States. As a judge of the Supreme
Court of the State he was a learned
and incorruptible i iterpreter of the
law. As United States Senator he
faithfully and with exceptional
honor represented the State in the
United States Senate. He was a dis
tinguished party leader, and stood in
the front rank with the great men
who were his contemporaries. After
being the recipient of many honors
at the hands of his party and
countrymen, he retired to private
life with the universal respect and
esteem of the citizins of the repub
lic, and the love of ail who had the
honor of knowing him. His illusn
trious career is a conspicuous ex
ample of tne possibilities of Ameri
can citizenship, and ic worthy of the
study of the youth of our State.
The people of Ohio, regardless of
party, will be mourner at his bier.
Out of respect to his memory, it is
hereby ordered that the flag be dis
played at half mat over the State
capitol until after the obsequies "
A Georgia woman has contrived a
1 1 very cunning device to prevent being
annoyed by her husbands snoring.
She has a mask fitted up with a
tube attachment, whiGh passes
through a hole in the floor into the
basement, and when hubby starts
the octaye Bhe slips the mask oer
his face, dexterously secures it, and
then goes off into dreamland herself,
while the rats in the biicment
scamper away from the upproach
cyclone. Lovely woman! She not
only cor irols her hubby in wakeful
hours but bosses him in dreamland,
If the hubby would die . suddenly
aad wake up in the next world har
nessed in euch a parapnanaliaas tbat
he would frighten his new com
panions. It was reported, that 000 were
converted in Winston during the
Fife iTieetUig, and it In? been re
ported since that only 120 joined
the various churches. We have but
very little i-iith in the pofes ion of
any one who refuses t: j-:n some
brunch of the Christi in church. N

Yesf and much leas faith in the
ruisreprecentator, who claims 900

scintilla of truth in it.
The whole North Carolina Con
rret; : ill delegation is said to have
rec. n;i : ?nded Congressman Pearson
fur a place on the coennkiee on

that tbat this does not mean that his

relief only by means of hypodermic injec

gave only temporary relief. After trying
