The Durham Herald notes that
there are damage suits on the
Durham Superior Court docket)
for 104,999.98, for prosecution
against raileoads. The Herald
says that while some of the suits
are frivolous, it does not mean
that damages will not be
awarded. The Herald thinks the
railroads recieve injustice in this
The Statesville Landmark
very forcibly adds:
"The fact is that railroad
damage suits in North Carolina
have reached the point where
their ridiculousness and unfair
ness are manifest to all right
thinking people. We do not
mean to say that there are not
cases in which the railroads
should bo compelled to pay dam
ages. There ar instances in
which they are clearly liable
and should be punished for neg
ligence. But every fair-minded
man who has given this matter
any attention knows that many
of the damage suits brought
against railroads, probably a
great majority of the suits, are
absolutely unfair and unjust, ana
in hundreds of instances the
railroads are "held up," so to
speak, and compelled to pay
damages, when as a matter of
right and justice they are in no

It is said that the Wester
Union Telegraph Company has
offered to take all the cotton
bought at " the fake prices sent
out, and for which dealers
threaten to sue for damage.
This would knock the martyrdom
out of the buyers, and would not
be a great loss to the company,
as the price is still tending upward.

THE RACKET STORE!
I father Ride a Cow Than Milk a Bicycle.
A farmer went into Messrs.
Mitchell & Co. 's bicycle store
and asked for a grass blade.
After being informed by Mr.
Mitchell that he did not deal in
farming implements, lie proposed
to sell the farmer a bicycle.
When told the prico of it, the
farmer said he had rather invest
that amount in a good cow.
"But," said Mr. Mitchell, "how
foolish you would look riding
over the country on the back of
a cow." "Not so foolish," re
plied the farmer, "as I'd look
trying to milk a bicycle." Dur
