licit your visits to their store and in

The 25 per cent reduction made on all
clothing at the Mebane Store Company
is a tempting proposition. If you need
anything in clothing now, or think you

There is plenty of work for the
young mens Business Association for
the new year, and a meeting called

The estimated wealth of this country
to day is one hundred and twenty five

It seems to have been a surprise to
some that the Republicans did not dis
cover prior to the election that Butler
would cost the party ten thousand votes
Well they did discover it, just the
same. The Editor of the Leader heard
a prominent Republican remark two
months before the election that the
burden of carrying Butler wuuld cost
the Republican party ten thousand
votes, and the Leader so stated it at
that time. There are some people
who never hear any noise until they
have busted a rubber baloon that they
had blown up.

their stocks badly damaged by water
Splencid work of the fire company and
favorable atmospheric conditions con
tributed to restricting the fire to cer

The Way It Is Done.
On the 8th of December we issued
from this office our regular edition of
Leader. In that regular addition was
an advertisment upon a seperate sheet
printed upon it, because we could not
make room in the regular adition for
this advertisment, Upon this seperate
sheet was printed at its head Supple
ment to the Mebane Leader Dec. 8th.
In the body of the paper a reference
was made to this special advertisment.
After the papers were mailed our
po3t master Mr. Arthur White wrote
to the third assistant P. M. General
and asked his ruling upon it, he an-
Wered that it was not a legal supple
ment and would be subject to pos
tage at the rate of 1 cent for every
two ounces or fraction thereof, upon
each individualy addressed wrapper.
Now this is business with a hurrah.
After an EJditor had done that he had
been informed, to comply with the law,
he is told that this is not a supplement
because it does not contain a little ten
line piece of reading matter. These
wise owls at Washington have technical
requirements to catch a little weekly,
when it is a known fact that the gov
ernment has been hauling mail over
this country from purely advertising
sheets in car load lots. This is sent
at one cent a pound, for instant
“Comfort” at Augusta Main, and Hap
py Home, each with a maihng list of
a million and half. The Red Book
Magazine of Chicago and McClure,
Cosmopalitan and a number of other
Magazins, that are making money by
the millions by 33 per cent of advertis
ment, by burdenihg the mails, and it is
alright at the Department, but this is
in perfect keeping with the way in

The Girl From Rectors.
“The Girl from Rectors” is making
an anual Southern tour. She showed
up in Danville Va. and Greensboro, last
week with a few of the most objection
able features eliminted, just enough to
slightly modify its gidy, dare devil
impulsive pruriency, but there is still
left a strong and repulsife odour of the
smutty, fulsome and obsene.
To make the “girl from Rectors” a
fit play for the stage everything would
have to be cut out except the name
The only way to make the girl from
Rectors decent is to kill it. It has
not a single suggestion of decency
about it. It is curiosity that may
lead people to the exhibition of the

But what is the use, the Girl from
Rectors IS a mirrowed reflection of the
roten end of our assumed select society
It is an exhibition of base obscenity,
and lust hid beneath the flimsy gauze
of lace, silks and satins of the vulgar
rich# Nor need we stare with open
mouthed wonder, at the “Girl from
Rectors” as seen on the stage in the
glare of the foot lights. We believe
there are a plenty of Girls from Rec
tors in the larger cities of this, and
other states. They are sometimes
leaders in your so called best society.
You will some time find them
meek eyed, sad faced, with an
expression of extreme piety, sitting in
your church pews, sometimes pressing
for room at the alter where the holy
sacremen# is administered, always
with the preachers salery promply
paid, which they have worked for with
their little pink fingers? Popular with
the preacher, and popular with the
male portion of the congregation, be
cause they are so very pius? Then the
scenc shifts and some dark night you
will see this same little bundle of
goodness neatly disguised in thick
wraps slipping along some dark alley,
until she reaches a waiting automobile,
and her rich affinity, she is whisked
away to some quiet trysting place
where the modem city “Girl from Rec
tors” exhibits her real self. The dif
ference being that she and her affinity
are usualy sharp enough to escape
detection, and as long as she does, a
gullable public swallows the salacious
stuff with a smack of relish. The girl
on the stage from Rectors gets caught

This is a crushing blow alright. After
forty years of stealing children, a
woman and a man get a sentence to
the penetintory, and to the “black
hand is struck a crushing blow.” If

might have talked of a crushing blow,
but less than this would not begin to

Of the Young Men's Bus
The annual banquet of the Young
men’s business association was given
in there hall Christmas eve~night. It
was well attended, infact we believe
with slight exceptions the entire mem
bership was present.
The Menu, embraced Cream of
oysters, Queen Olives, Pickles, and
Celery, Sandwiches, French Sardines,
Salted wafers, Quail on toast, Sarato
ga Chips, Port wine, 1742 vintage—
Salted peanuts. Cigars. Budweiser
To say there was a delightful time
would be putting it extremely mild.
It was Christmas time, and a generous
flow of good fellowship. As the crowd
of prominent business men were to
gether it was thought by some to be
opportune to bring to the attention of
the association some practical matters
but on motion of Mr. W. E. White
this wap defered to some preeeding
m»eting. Mr. David Katz agreed with
this view of the matter, in fact urged
it in a brief talk. There was brief
speeches by Mr. Puryear, Mr, Arthur
White, Prof. Crawford, Mr. Sam White
Mr. Will Corbett, Mr. W. E. White,
Mr. David Katz, Mr. Ed White, Mr.
Felix Graves, Mr. Will Murry, and Mr.

on for a Solo, and responded with his
deep mellow voice.
Mr. Felix Graves had been requested
to preside as toast master, but begged
that he be excused, he had been suf
fering from dumb chills, Mr. George
Johnson presided in his stead. The
banquetters adjomed at 12 o’clock to

Mr. Will White was expecting Santa
Claus to put an order for a train load

springs. Mr. L. S. Straughn was
looki'^g for customers for a half a doz
en fine Alamance County farms. Mr.
Lewis Puryear was expecting an order
for a dozen car loads of his chairs,
while all the merchants present would
go home and dream of stores full of
customers for 1911. And some how or
other we believe that Santa S^ius is
going to come near granting their
wishes for the 'coming year. It was
an unusual pleasant occasion.
On motion there was a standing vote
of thanks tendered Mr. Johnie Holmes
and others for supervising
