Two-thirds of the world’s production
of petroleum during 1910 is credited to
the United States. The development
ot new oil supplies during the year in
creased the country’s production to over
200,000,000 barrels, which surpass the
phenomeal production of 1907, 1908
and 1909. The year’s yield was mor«
than the whole world produced seven

Guilford Saved Over $10,-
Raleigh News and Observer.
Ten thousand dollars and more—or
to be exact, $10,395 —was the amount
Guilford county saved last year by pay
ing its county officers fair salaries.
$7,975,77 went to build good roads and
$2,419.34 went to help to help educate
the children. And the county officers
were paid fair salaries—quite as much
as they could have earned in any pri
vate business—and Guilford has as
capable public officials as any county
in North Carolina.
Why should not every large county
go and do likewise?
As An Agency For Good.
As the years go by it becomes more
and more recognized that an ho'^est
feailess nawspaper is an agency for
good and a foe to the bad, for the dis
honest man fears the honestly conduct

light of the sun when trying to break
into a house. The glare of publicity
as given by the unmuzzled' journals
that mold public opinion has scorched
and withered many a vicious scheme,
sent many a scoundel scurrying to
obscurity, as a rat to his hole; saved
multiplied thousands to those who else
would have been deceived and robbed,
and brought to the bar of justice many
a criminal who else would have gone
unwhipped of justice.

Boll Weevil’s Havoc.
A striking illustration of the damage
wrought by the boll weevil is found in
a statement of the size of the cotton
crop in Jefferson county Tennessee,
for the last five years—before and after
the weevil made its appearance: In
1907 Jefferson county made 20,145 bales:
in 1908, 19,062 bales; in 1909, 7,791
bales; in 1910, 3,404 bales. There is no
way to get at the record of such crops
as corn, potatoes, pears, molasses,
hogs, cattle etc., but it is known that
there has been a steady increase, and
that this year the farmers of thi»t sec
tion have produced more foodstuffs
than ever before in their lives.
A Clear Insight.
If there is any business on earth, in
which a man may get a clear insight
into human character, it is the news
paper business. An Editor comes in
contact^ with men of the highest in
tegrity, perfect gentleman, jast as
honest as the days are long, and then
there is a class of dishonest sneaks who
it would be dangerous to leave with
their dead grandfather, if there was a
silver quarter on his eyes. There is a
vast difference between the man wh#
cannot pay, and the fellow who deli
berately tries to beat an Editor out of
an honestly due subscription. We
hive a contempt tor the latter class.

Vote Buying Inquiry.
Investigation of the vote buying
charges in every county of the Eigh
teenth congressional district of Canhons
district—was planned Monday, and
following the inquiry into the sale of
votes in Vermillion county th« question
will be moved to Edgar county.
The exodus of local politicians, who
know of the vot« scandal, has ham
pered the grand jury considerably.
Vote selling is said to have been as
prevalent in Edgar, Kankakee and Iro
quois counties, also in Cannon’s dis
trict, as it was elsewhere.

only as it makes us holy.—T. Calvin
Giving Away The Game.
“If any proof were needed that the
subsidy shriekers are more concerned
to loot the public treasury than to up
build an American merchant marine, it
could be found in convincing measure
in the uncompromising opposition
which they offer to any and all pro
posals to extend American reg^try to
to America-owned bottoms engaged in
the foreign trade and built abroad,
The New York Commercial, a thick
and thin subsidy organ, undertakes to
Demolish Senator Cummins’ argument
for free ships by declaring that re
peal of the existing prohibition would
not avail to bring one ton of foreign-
built shipping owned by American cap
ital under the American flag and that,
therefore, the sole result would be to
“furnish a profitable market for for-
eigfn shipbuilders, while meantime our
own shipyards would be shutting down
for kck of work.”
In the first place, how does Commer
cial know that American capital would
not invest in foreign-built tonnage for
service nnder the American flag, if
our navigation laws were so amended
as to admit such tonnage to American
registry? On the contrary, the recent
announcement that the United Fruit
Company proposes to ask Congress for
special permission to operate its fleet
under the American flag makes it cer
tain that repeal of the prohibition in
question would add to the American
merchant marine at least one hundred
thousand tons of deep-sea shipping.
And if this tonnage now flying the
British flag is sufHciently anxious for
American registry to apply for a
special enabling act, certainly the
chances are even that at least a large
part of the eight or nine hundred thou
sand tons of American-owned shipping
now operating under foreign flags
would change to the American, if given
an opportunity so to do.”—Virginia

Jan 30th, 1911.
Mr. O. F. Crowson, Editor,
Burlington, N. C,
I regret to take issue with
any one through the News Papers,
however as you have tried .to make a
political question of the matter of
Salaries for our County officers; I want
to take issue with you on a few of your
statements. You say had the Repub
licans been successful during the last
election that they would not have
agitated (his question. In regard to
this would say that I personally col
lected data from the different Counties
that had adopted the salary system, and
I brought this matter before the last
Republican County Convention and it
was voted unan’jnously to advocate the
salary System for our county officers,
which was also embodied in our plat
form, and the Republican Candidates
during the last campaign favored this
system and pledged themselves, if
elected, to put this system into effect,
and you know the above statements
are correct and you have no right to
say they were not honest in these
I also note that you suggest that,
this is a matter for the next Demo
cratic Convention to settle, and you
intimate that no Republican has a right
to even suggest any thing that they may
think is good for the county, and as to
this statement, I want to say that it
is true that I have ^advocated salaries
for our county officers, not on political
grounds but pureley on business grounds
and I thought that it was to the inter
est of our county, and I honestly be
lieved would result in a saving of at
least four to five thousand dollars
annually, and I want to say that while
I belong to the manority party at this
time, that I am a citizen and tax payer
of our county and I believe that when
matters of such importance to the tax
payers of the county is in discussion,
that I have as much right to express
my opinion as any other citizen of the
county, and I believe that the majority
party will not only accord me this
privilege, but will welcome any sug
gestions that I or any one else has to
present, if they think that it is to the
interest of our county. I want to say
to you that so far as I am concerned
that politics has not entered into this
question and I have so stated in the
letters that you have published, that
this was a matter for the citizens and
tax payers to settle, and I only sug
gested that a Mass Meeting be called,
not for Democrats or Republicans, but
for the citizens and tax payers of
Alamance County, to discuss this
matter and then if the people, regard
less of politics, favored this measure,
to them petition our representative,
Mr. Long, to introduce and pass this
measure through the present session of
I note that you state that the present
county officals would not be effected,
even should this Legislatura put our
officers on salaries, you are correct as
to this statement, however should we
Wait two years longer then it would be
four years before we could put our
county officers on salaries. I urge you
and the other papers to drop politics
for the time being and to put this
measure on broad business lines and
lets get together, regardless of pDlitics
and have the present Legislature to
give us relief, and then after Dec. the
1st, 1912, we can put our county offi
cials on salaries and save our county
five thousand dollars annually.
I suggest and urge the Press of the
county to print a call in this week’s
issue for a Mass Meeting to be held at
Graham on Monday, February the 6th
to discuss this question.

On Lake Halcyon’s Shores
In a concrete grave on the shores of
Lake Haycyon* in Mount Auburn cem-
etary, there was laid a bronze coffin
contaming the body of Mrs. Mary
Baker Glover Eddy, founder of the
Christian Science denomination. On
the coffin rested a bronze box enclosing
a Complete set of the works of Mrs.
Eddy, together with all recent Christ
ian Science publications, while the sil
ver plate benesth gave her name and
the dates of her birth and death. The
ceremony was attended by the direc
tors of the church and scores of its
strongest supporters Judge Clifford P,
Smith, first reader of the mother
church, repeated the Ninety-first
Psalm and the last two verses in Jude,
which was read at the funeral Dec. 8,
Then the grave was sealed. Later the
spot will be marked by a mausoleum.
Gen. Henry M. Baker of Bow, N. H.
Mrs Eddy’s cousin, and executor of
her will, was the only member of the
family in attendance, but it was an
nounced that all claims to other burial
places had been waved. So the church
buried its leader.
Since the funeral service of Mrs.
Eddy, Dec- 8, the bronze coffin has re-
pos.ed in the receiving tomb of Mount
Auburn, with a guard beside it day and
The bronze plate covering the fea
tures of Mrs. Eddy was pushed pack,
and one by one the little company
gazed for the last time on her placid
A Pension Rule.
One of the rules of the Pension Bu
reau is that no remarried widow of a
war verteran may receive a pension if
she were not married to her first hus
band at the time of his army service.
The government holds that the only
remarried widows entitled to govern
ment aid are those who stayed behind
while their first husbands went to the
front for their country.
Some little time ago Senator Burton
received an application from a woman
who, it appeared, had not married
until several years after the close of
the war. The Senator had his secretary
write a letter setting forth the statute
in such cases, made and provided.
In a day or so he got an answer from
the woman reaffirming her claims for
a pension. “It is true,” she said,
“that we were not married until after
the war, but I'll have you know that
we were engaged before he went away
to war, and if I'd had my way. we
would have* been married right then ”
And in proof of the fact that they
were engaged during the war, she
went ahead to relate the full circums
tances of the proposal, where they
were sitting, how they happened to
delay getting married, and all about it.
Uncle Daniel Tells
Daniel Conners, an old colored man
of seventy odd years of age who lives
up the railroad about a mile West of
Mebane talks reminiscently of the days
long past, and gone. Old uncle Daniel,
as he is familiary known is as polite
as a French danceing master, and is
one of the old time darkies that is fast
We asked uncle Daniel if he believed
in ghost.and haunts, he answered sure
sir he did, he had seen them plenty of
times, and knew for a certain there
was ghost. He said the first time he
had ever seen a ghost was when he
was a young man just grown up. He
said he had been over to Captain
Johnson’s place to see ^ome friends, and
was returning home late at night. He
had got down near Haw Creek Cross
ing, the moon was way over in the
West,^n fact it was nearly in the tree
tops, when I saw something floating
in the air, low down to the road, just
ahead of me, I felt kinder squeamish,
but just pushed on, in a little while the
ghost got up closer to me, and the air
begin to feel chilly, and I could smell
something like new dug up earth. This
was too much for me, so I moved up
a little faster, and as I did the ghost
put on more speed, then I b^an to
get real scared, it was not long before
I was shooting down that road like a
race horse. When I got to Haw
Creek I struck the bridge about in
spots, just as I landed on the other
side there was some patrolers hollered
to me to halt, I told them I was going
after the doctor, they shot at me, but
I went on, when I got home I was so
scared and so tired I did not know
what to do, I was sick and could not
work for two days. No sir I never
seen any ghost walking, they all seem
to float, but they are getting scarcer
and scarcer all the time, I seldom see
a ghost now days.
Now as to hants, it is different
there is a great many more hants now
than there was before the war, but a
hant is different from a ghost, a ghost
smells like a grave yard, but a hant
now days smells like com licker, but
they both move round easy like they
wore rubber shoes. I aint near skerd
of hants as I am of ghost, a ghost is
awfull thing to think about, when you
see one it makes the cold swet come
out. Yes sir I will tell you some more
about ghost some time, 1 must hurry
long, I have a well to clean out.
