TiiF PASSING OF LIE HOG PEN.
We learn that the Cannon
Manufacturing Company, includ
ing the Cabarrus mills, will after
January 15, 1000 inaugurate
a regulation that- no hog pens
will be allowed on the premises
of their tenement houses.
The hog pen problem has ex
ercised the minds of the town
f-J as of many of our cities and
in some Ave believe the pens are
entirely eluded. In our manu-lae'..-Lg
;nr m fvvi'ilv verv contracted
am! il is not sur)rising that the
rn;-;v' r it cf our great indus
ul;u. i: -rprises wlio from hu
man :t -';v, as well as financial
interest must be the guardians
of ncalth and social harmcny,
should find it necessary to move
in this direction before the city
While a few persons may feel
a degree oi privation in not be
in.r allowed their long accus
tomed piivilege of raising a crop
of pork. we doubt not a large
majority will be freed from the
0;. . h c, .1 squealing from their
neighbors pig s ies.
The question of swills comes
next into consideration. But
the waste from thrifty house
wifery and really expert cookery
does not contemplate much of
value in the swills and what
there is is not bad on a little
cultivated corner, or may soon
find a way of being gathered up
and hauled to an out-of-the-way
pi pea. the receiver returning
some compensatory favor. The
time is probably not far distant
xrhen the hog pen must go from
aL thickly settled communities.
THE AMI'S TUG HARD.
Capt. J B Eaves, in that
champion of the anti-amendment
journals, the Asheville Gazette,
gets to the wheel -tppjihat
pushes so heavily up hill. What
a strain it is to find some excuse
to oppose the amendments. Ho
seems to see in a vision a whole
troop of itfhite .men -after 1908
that will be unable to vote be
cause .tlxpy. can't read and they
will be blaming their fathers for
voting for, the amendments and
instead of .going at it tp learn
will consider themselves on a
level with penitentiary convicts
and will therefore turn them
seJ ves loose over the country ,as
a dangerous element. WluTe all
this is going on he sees in Hali
fax, for instauce, the negro am
bitiously meeting the require
ments of the law and polling
a majority vote.
According to Capt. Eaves,
white men must be made of very
poor stuff and the negroes, in the
oast, of the very kind of material
for good citizens.
It seems very much like white
parents who will not send their
children to our free school
! .luusrh to read and write are
i very destitute of parental ambi
tion and would most likely rear
sons not very desirable for
voters, and if a boy be an off
shoot with more than inherited
nobilitv the world can hardly
keep him from getting enough
education to vote.
There will be hard tugging to
find valid objections to the
amendments. They are a good
long step in the right direction.
They are perfectly justifiable for
eliminating unintelligent voting
and are one of the best stim
ulants to intelligent citizenship.
THE THOUJSLESIOF A TEACHER.
The trial of Prof. Coon before
the graded schoolsboard of Salis
bury is so characteristic that
were it noi: a real trouble one
touched; with a feeling from
shnilar experiences could smile.
This particular case only sur
passed in magnitude not in es
sence the very common experi
ence where peoplo are not loyal
to those in authority and are
quick to set themselves up as
judges of matters about which
they know less than those they
would condemn. How quick too
are people not noted for their
piety and their general upright
ness to catch on to something
heterodox in those whose piety
and church love aro a constant
monitor against error.
It would seem that .when lead
ing spirits with their energies
and their wealth provide schools
in which the children of the less
fortunate share equal chances of
an education, it would be ac
cepted gladly. It is surpns:ng
too that any are so ignorant as
to not k now wnen you try to help
and benefit them. But thus it is
and it is one of the crosses of
We admit that there are teach
ers who are in the field for the
bread and butter there is in it.
These are just as apt to please
the class 'hat is ready to object
as ooe w'.iose very soul is in the
work. Bub such teachers we
th-nk are not very common and
are generally shelves pretty
soon by the proper authorities.
No better plan we think is be
fore parents than to presume
that the management of our
schools is :n the hands of people
who know beu along their time.
Get such books as are called
for, place your child in the
hands, of the teacher, show an
appxeclaliyinterestia the school
and the teacher, seek pleasant
retations, top, .with the teacher,
without too high opinion of your
self or your child, ' and we war
rant few troubles will arise and
the XaMul, teacher can put in
f ill time and energies at teach
ing and not have td divide these
along with unduly; children and
cruelly turbulent parents.

note that the Louise Brehaney

is the strongest Natural Lithia
water on the market and has
the endorsement of the most
noted physicians of the country
as to its superiority over all
others. Read what the noted
Dr. John Hey Williams, of Ashe
ville, has to say for Harris
Asheville, N. C. April 24, 1893.
An extended clinical use of Har
ris Lithia Water prompts me to
the statement that I regard it as
one of the best if not the best,
Lithia Water known to the pro
fession. In the condition of
Phosphatic Urine, its action is
marvellous. Its use in the Rheu
matic and County Diseases afford
me more comfort than either the
Buffalo or Londonderry Waters.
Very truly yours,
JOHN HEY WILLIAMS, M. D.
We guarantee that one glass of
Harris Lithia carbonated water
will relieve any case of indiges
tion in one minute or our agent
is authorized to refund you the
money, or if taken after each
meal will cure the most stubborn
case of indigestion. Why suf
fer when you ha ve the guarantee?
M L Marsh,
Agent for Concord.
It will not be a surprise to any who
are at all familiar with good qualities of
Chamberlain's Cough Remedy, to know
that people everywhere take pleasure in
relating their exjerience in the use of
that splendid medicine and in teding
of the benefit they have received from
it, of bad colds it has cured, of
threatened attacks of pneumonia it has
averted and of the children it has saved
from attacks of croup and whooping
cough. It is a grand, good medicine.
