00M PAUL TIIHTE1) A PANTI1EU.
It is in order now, of course,
to tell stories of heroism about
Oom Paul, or President Kruger,
so '.'Aunt Jane" in the Home
and Farm comes forward with
The story runs that, at tl o
age 17, he was driving a pair
of oxer to a wagen in Cape Col
ony. itli him was his little
sister, whom he was charged
with protecting. When within
some miles of home they were
attacked by a panther. The
oxen took fright and ran. The
sister was thrown out and was at
the mercy of the ferocious beast.
Paul quickly sprang from the
wag oil and, with', no weapon,
engaged the panther. It was an
awful tight in which Paul's hide
was . ut almost into shoe-strings,
but he succeeded in getting a
grip on the mobster's throat,

romrnns to be seen whether

the throat, since he has given
him a most awful twist of the
DISMAL SWAMP CANAL.
T'he Dismal swamp canal con
necting our eastern sounds with
Norfolk was formally opened on
Saturday the 14th. The impor
tnce of this event, as regards
small vessils, is such as to make
it an ?r)och in history.- : - : v
The student of geography will
ses at a glance1 that a vessel of
light craft may sail . from Balti
more Richmond, Washington
and other places via Chesapeake
bay through this canal- and Al
bemarle, Pamlico ' atnd' Core
sounds', coming into Orislbw Bay
below Cape Lookout, thereby,
escap - ng "tfie 'dangers of 'Hat eras',
the worst point along "o'tir Atlan
tic coast. . . .. "..
This canal we believe was sur
vey ed : by George Washington
while a civil eng i neer. Through
the junglecalled Dismal Swamp
the canal is built much like a
railroad. At points it is cut
through little hills and at other
points the water is held in by
dikes or walls much like the
Mississippi river. These dikes
made the canal an easy prey to
the destructive hand' of war in
the GO's and it has "not been 6per"
ative since till just now.
Tne soothing -and dealing prop
erties of Chamberlain's Cough

with a socket into which a bayo-

A Push for the Canal.
The Industrial connection says
a Huntsville, Alabama, dis
patch of the 13th passed resolu
t'.ons'at its close asking all south?
em congressman to aid Senator
Morgan in' his efforts to secure
the building of the Nicaraguan
canal; Senator Morgan in a
''Hitherto the people of the
United' States,have not appre
ciated the1 imjortdnce of this ca
nal. During the recent war,
when one of our battleships had
to go around the Horn, the peo
ple generally realized its impor
tance." The senator now hopes to suc
ceed and has expressed the bo
lief that the canal will be built
within six years.
The following recommenda
tions were adopted by the con
vention: That ' the association
be made permanent and hold
meetings each sixth month in
the various cities of the south;
that industrial and immigration
bureaus be established in every
southern state to assist in build
ing up the different states, and
f iat the race problem be entirely
sop;-; rated from politics."
