J. D. and L B. Whicted are pushing
winter goods to the front to make
room for spring stock. Don’t forget
them they will surprise you in prices.
It would be of benefit to Mebane if
we had a few more cottages with such
modern improvements as the town can
afford. They are needed now, and will
be needed worse later.
It seems such a great pity that the
maccadamized road could rot have been
extended at least a mile further North,
it does not go quite far enough to get
out of red clay area.

will be forgiven. Less than this would
not suit the case.
Hall Oldham, a colord man who lives
on Mr. W. B. Yorks, farm a mile and
a half east of Mebane, had the mis
fortune to get his leg broke last Friday
while felling timber, a tree in falling

the ankle an knee and snaped the bone.
The loss of life in the Cuban war

It is stated on good authority that
flees carry infantile paralysis, or in
fact the bite of certams flees may
produce it. Infantile paralysis is a
terable disease, and it may induce some
parents to keep the flee infected curs
away from their chiMren.
Mr A. E. Holtan, has been nomi-
enated by the President for reapwint-
ment as district attorny for the Western
dstrict of North Carolina, Mr. Holton,
has held the position for a number of

Luther has a little baby boy that he
hopes to see one of North Carolinae
Governors some of these days, Ho is a
bright healthy little fellow.
The new train service between
Greensboro, aud Raleigh seems to be
proving a success from the start The
cars are clean, and the schedule fixes
hours when it is more agreeable to
travel East, the return trip can be
made on an earlier train if desired. So
far the travel seems good for a starter.
We ordered forty pounds of plate
matter from Philadelphia that cost us
three dollars. The freight charges to
this point was ninety cts cabh, and the
freight agent here haggled about want
ing storage upon that charge, because
the package remained in the depot a few
days over forty eight hours. If there
was a railroad commission in this coun
ty that was worth hell room no such
condition would have to be endured.
And this is an infintisemal item in
the long catalogue of grievances the
public are compelled to suffer.

What the Public Would
Like to See.
The United States Steel Corporation
(the Trust) has reduced the salary of
its President from one hundred thous
and to fifty thousand dollars a year.
What the public would like to see is a
reduction in the price of iron and steel
products to the domestic consumer
That will come when the tariff duties
ha\e been lowered to a point rendering
possible some measure of foreign com
petition, and not until then.--Va Pilot.
Heavy Punishement For
The heaviest punishment oi^inarily
meted out in the navy in time of peace
has fallen upon Ernest H. Walker, a
second class fireman on the battleship
Louisiana, who killed Patrick J.
Itf’itzimmons, a water-tender, while the
two men *^ere ashore at Cherboug,
France. A court martial was held on
the Louisiana and the sentence, just
confirmed by the Navy Department, is
imprisanment for life for Walker. He
will be confined in the New Hampshire
State penitentiary at Concord.
Going After Coal,
Mr. J. W. Payne, of Walnut Cove,
Stokes Co who is planning to develop
the coal mine’near the town, was in the
city today soliciting stock for his com*
pany. The promoters want S5,000, and
with this amount they feel confident
that the development will prove a most
profitaBle investment. Subscriptions
will be received from fifty dollars up.
At the Warehouse.
There were good sales of tobacco at
the Piedmont Warehouse all the first
of the week and especlaly so Tuesday,
when the following farmers brought m
tobacco, which ranged in prices from

Cow Wrecked Train,
Four persons were injured, one ser-*
iously, last Friday at Monroe Ala.,
when a Chicago. Rock Island and Pa
cific passenger train struck a cow. The
engine was derailed and J. L. Curry,
engineer, badly scalded. Two passen
gers and the fireman were slightly hurt.
Senator Luke Lee.
The election of Luke Lee, Editor of
the Nashville Tennesseean, to the
United States Senate on last Monday
at Nashville was a distinctive recognition
of Mr. Lees, fight to a finish through
his paper of that infamous marplot,
and mischef maker Malcomb Patterson.
Luke Lee, has been the avenging
nemesis that has persued this reprobate
to the gates of obloquy and shame.
The Business Mens As
The Business Mens Association of
Mebane should get actively to work.
Mebane needs very much the services
of just such an organization. It is cape-
able of accomplishing very much good,
and it is sleeping upon its purposes if
it fails to make good. One man can
not do it all, or can two, but with all
of the members assigned duties, and
as statel periods asked to give an ac
counting, we are sure that practical
and profitable results will follow.
Now at the beeinning of the new
year there should be a policy mapped
out, the Association called together,
and system of work inaugurated that
will before the end of 1911 giye promise
of great things tor Mebane,
Every man in the Association ought
o be put on a committee, so that each
may feel he has duties and upon him
in some measure devolves a responsa-
bility for Mebane future good. A
spirit of selfishness or egotism has
no place in a commercial, and industrial
body of this character, and if a ten
dency to it is manifested it should be
set down upon. It is no foot light ap
plause affair, but it is one in which the
highest efficiency is exhibited in the
most active and patriotic unselfish
service. Let us hear from Mr. Presi
County Officers on Salaries
Much has been said and written
in regard to putting our county officers
on salaries, and I believe a large ma
jority of our citizens and tax payers
favor this change. Believing that it
could not only mean a large saving to
to the county, but would the means
of getting our county officers on a
business basis. We see that the larger
and more progressive counties of our
state are asking this session of the
Legislative to put their county officers
on salaries, and as Alamance is one of
the rich counties of our state, and its
wealth is increasieg rapidly, I can see
no plausable excuse why Alamance
should not be as progressive as our
sister counties—I suggest that our
County Commissioners at their meeting
on the ^st Monday in Februaiy call a
mass meeting of the citizens and tax
payers of Alamance to meet in the
Court House at Graham at an early
day, to discuss this, and such other
matters as may come before this mass
meeting and then if the citizens and
tax-payers of Alamance favor these
reforms, then to petition our able
young Reqresentative Hon. J. E.
Long, to have these bills drawn and
enacted into a law. If we want this
relief it will be necessary to act quick
ly as the present session of the present
Legislature will have only about SO
days more after Feby. 1st. Let all
get together and work for the good of

The Tobacco Sale.
The Piedmont Warehouse will more
than doable last years sales this year,
in fact the prospect in the leaf tobacco
trade have grown so bright that Mebane
has determind to build an other ware
house to take care of the business.
This is very encouraging because the
quality of tobacco raised near here or
accessable to this market is the best of
its kind in the state, it is always in
good demand at a fair price. Soon
after we began the publication of the
Leader here, and learned the class of
crops raised in this section, and that
more than 3000 tons of fertilizer was
hauled north from this depot to the
tobacco farmes adjacent, we wondered
why a tobacco market could not be
established and maintained here, and
b^an the advocacy of one, as our files
will show. The people of Mebane
never did a wiser thing than when they
built the Piedmont Warehouse, they
will act wise when they build an other.
Prudent management will make this
one of the best tobacco markets in the
state. J. N. Warren, & Co. propri
etors of the Piedmont Warehouse have
succeeded splendidly, they are the right
men in the right place.
The Editor of the Loader is in receipt
of the foUowii^ invitiition.

WORLD’S TALLEST RUILDIN6
Will Cost $5,000,000 and
Is to Be Portyfive Stories,
or 625 Feet, High.
The New York papers have recently
had considerable to say about a new
building which when finished will be
the third tallest n the world, which is
soon to be erected at Broadway and
Park place in the metropolis. It will
have forty-five stories and be 625 feet
high, more than a dozen feet higher
than the Singer building.
The new structure, which will cost
$5,000,000, will be called the Wool-
worth building and the man whose name
it bears has tiie money to pay the bills.
He made it out of the 5 and 10-cent
stores, of which he now has 286, and
there are about 9,000 people in his
employ and Woolworth himself is not
much more than fifty years of age.
His career is like that of many another
American and is typical of this Country,
Momma, Billy told me it got so
warm the other day that the snakes
came out. He said West Warren was
in the Holmejp-Warren warehouse
petering around, looking for some>
thing* when a big black snake slipped
up behind him and hit him on the
back. It frighten Mr. Warren at first
but he turned around quick and dared
the snake to doit again, and tiien the
snake sliped into a piece of iron pipe
and spit at him. It made Mr. Warren
mad through, and through. He said
he always wanted to fight a snake in
the open, and he did not like his sneak
ing away like that.
It is reyortod that Mr. John Fresh
water, P. O. clerk married we only

South Carolina Boy Has
Altho a pin has passed entirely through
his kidneys, being discharged m a
rusted condition, James Tompkins, sop
of Dr. J. G. Tompkins, of Edgefield,
S C., is in perfect health, the peculiar
incident affecting his health only during
the period when the pin was actually
in the kidney. Physicians were puzzled
by the boy’s illness at first and now
state that there is probably not a like
case on record.

Come in a Flood to the

Washington, D. C.—Democrats were
jubilant over the results of last Satur

the next house of representatives.
Champ Clark, who scored the honor of
being the first democratic speaker of
the house ever chosen for the first term
by acclamation, shared with representa

chosen by acclamations as chairman of
the ways and means committee, a flood
of congratulations from the members of
the house and others during the day.
Chairman Underwood will call the com
mittee together next week to frame a
plan of action.
It is not expected that che committee
will begin acual work until after ad

The Boy ^Scouts.
Marshville Our Home.
One of the most excellent broth
erhoods in America is that known as
the “boy Scouts.” ft is the primary
aim of the boy scouts movement to teach
manliness, self-respect and efficiency,
and this is done by affording recreation
at the same time. The members of
this fraternity are requested to be con
stantly on the alert for opportunities t
be useful and kind. It matters not
what other features this movement
may have about it, that part which
teaches youths to be useful and kind
is an admirable one. Idleness and
unkindness go together. A boy who
stands around on the street comers or
plays baseball or other games instead
of having bis time and efforts employed
at some honorable job that will help to
keep the industrial machinery of the
country moving isn’t very apt to display
any great amount of kindness. Just
what is allowed to grow into a boy’s
nature during the first twelve or fifteen
years of his life is the substance that
forms the pith of his life’s work.
Anything that teaches boys to be in
dustrious and kind is worthy of the
respect and esteem of every one.
TILLMAN DYIN6 FRIENDLESS.
Slayer of Editor Uonzales
Never Forgiven by the
Estranged from wife and relatives,
deserted by former friends and penni

tenant-governor of South Carolina and
slayer of N. G. Gonzales, editor of the
Columbia State, is dying in a wretched
hut near Edgefield S. C. attended by

Tillman sought to enter the ministry

The Passing of The Queue
(From the New York World.)
The sacrifice of Wu Ting-fang’s
queue to the barber’s shears January 30
will be a cermony of no less interest to
the western than to the eastern world.
It is not merely that the movement of
which it is typical affects the price of
puffs and braids for feminine wear
from Paris to San Francisco. The
suggestive thing is the passing of a
picturesque feature of the oldest civili
zation. After wearing the badge of
servitude imposed on them by their
Manchu conquerors so long that it came
to be regarded as a decoration, the
Chinese are now dispensing with the
pigtail as not keeping with the pro
gram of modernization adopted by
the empire. With its disuse another
step will have been taken toward the
standardization of costume which is
eliminating the distinctiveness from
national attire. Like the noble red
man in “store clothes” or a Sicilian
grirl in a tailormade dress, a Chinaman
in a sack suit and derby hat becomes a
prosaic figure by contrast with one in
native costume. Wu himself in a
black coat, with his hair cat, will losa
the romatic attributes which lent force
to the philosophy of his after-dinner
Dangerous Moments in
Wellknown Elephant Acts
(From “Critical Moments with Wild
Animals,” by Ellen Velvin, in McClue’s
Magazine for February.)
The well-known elephant act where
five young women get on the backs of
the elephants, each elephant politely
holding out his foot fur his fair rider
to mount, contains many dangers that
the public does not even think of. The
huge foot is likely to be put down
suddenly at any moment—for there is
never any knewing what an elephant
will do—which would mean an ugly
fall, with the posibility of being steped
on by the elephant; or the huge beast
might calmly put up his trunk and lift
his rider off. This is a pretty, grace
ful act, but most uncomfortable in
many ways for the girl performers.
The rough hair of the elephants cut
their h^nds and ankles; they come in
; contact with the dirt and grease of the
animal’s skin; and the few moments
that they stand on the elephant’s back
while they give their little salute are
Turkish Qoyernment Is
Harassed By Armed Bands
The Imam of Sana, Seyid Yahya,
has declared war against the Turks,
and armed bands are gathering in the
Yemen mountains. The notorious
sheikh, Beni Pasha, has joined the
Imam’s standard, and a rising through
out Yemen, a region of southwest
Arabia, is expected.
The pretender Idrisee iias assumed
the defensive against the Turks. The
capital of Asir province has been under
seige since early in December, the gov
ernor and a large garrison being barred
Recent dispatches from Constantino
ple said that the Turkish government
had determined to suppress the rebel
lion that had existed for several years
in Yemen, and to that end would send
37 fully equipped battalions into that
district. The embarkation of troops
began January 18.
PUYS DURING SEASON
The Hogg^ish Consumption
of Hog Meat.
When asked how the health of the
community was, a few months ago, a
well known physician of this place
replied: “It is splendid. Very little
sickness, but hog killing time is now
here and there will be something doing
before long.’* Do you ever stop to
consider the fact that a large per cent,
of the disorders of the human body are
caused by eating Jmeat? Especially is
this true among children. We have
seen small boys eat enough sausage for
two grown people and then cry because
they didn’t have enough—and it wasn’t
long before they cried again. This
time because they had too much. It is
a fact that hog meat is the most un
healthful article that we use daily. It
might not deal so badly ^^rith our system
if we would eat the proper amount and
quit, but it seems to be the tendency of
too many people, when they start to
eating hog meat to carry the nature of
the hog itself. It is claimed by some
that we imbide into our very nature
the qualities of animals whose flesh
we feed upon. If this be true, then
Is it any wonder that we so often over
rate ourselves when we sit down to a
dinner of pork? These are things for
us to think about Certainly parents
should see to it that children are
properly fed, whether their food con
sists of hog meat or of something else.

How the Conspiracy to Let
Califoma Rob Us Was
In an article on “The Lemon in the
Tariff,” in McClure’s for January,
Samuel Hopkins Adams writes.
Up to the time when the tariff bill
was passed, the importations (which
are all from Italy) were as seven to
fivCi Inferentially, it would appear that
the Italian trade had an advantage under
the old tariff of one cent a pound. This
was not the fact. The imported lemon
could meet the California lemon on
anything like equal terms only on the
Atlantic coast, and even there it was
at a slight disadvantage.
Why, then did not the California
truit capture the nmrket? For one
reason only. The entire crop of native
lemons could supply less than half the
demand; and practicaly the entire
American production is limited to a
very small area in the southern half of
California, Therefore, what the fruit
growers were really seeking when,
through their senatorial mouthpiece,
they begged an advance, was to drive
out their foreign competitors and to
establish a monopoly in an article in
which there would be a constant short
age—thereby enabling them to xe£Tulate
prices at their pleasure.
The house committee gave the grow
ers an advance of twenty-five per cent
The senate, against the earnest protests
of such divers senators as R^t and
Bristow, increased it to the full fifty
per cent demanded, and this on the
bBsis of ailments that were too bald
to be even specious.
Why. then, was so ridiculous a sched
ule allowed? For a very simple reason.
Senator Aldrich needed the yotes. He
needed them for his scandalous wool
tariff (Schedule K.). He needed them
for his monstrous trust-written sugar
schedule. He needed them for cotton.
He needed them for steeL No tjo^
schedule sins unto itself alone; it invokes
and involves in its unrighteousness
many allied and interrelated wrongs.
Because the great tariff issues were a
target for the shafts of insurgents and
democrats, because already public
opinion was becoming aroused to their
enormity, Aldrich had to muster every
possible votes and at any price. The
* little lemon benefice was part of the
Stock Holders Meeting.
There will be a meeting of the stock*
holders of The Alamance Fair Associ*
ation at the office on the Fair grounds
on Friday January 27th 1911 at 1 o’lock
P. M. to consider the proposition of
leaseingtiie grounds for the fair.
A very important meeting and a full
attendance is urged.
