The smart Alexs in our last Legis

got a bill through the general assem

It is suggested by some scientist
that as a monument to peace it would
he a good idea to shoot a large can
non ball beyond the earths gravation,
*nd let it revolve in space around

is an excellent one but we do
*'®t believe it posible to invent a gun
with carrying capacity serficient to
^ve a ball beyond the attraction of
the earth, and if it were posible it
'vould be imposlblc to force up a ball
sufficiently large to be seen after it
reached the stella sphere.

A Good Section Master

John Pruitt, from Morrisville, N. C-
John does not look to be more than a
boy, but he is one among the best
section masters that has worked the
road near here for some time. He is a
bundle of energy and activelty, a fellow
of good judgement who believes in

It Seems Inevetable*
The United States broke o;>en a
pandora box when it annexed the Phili-
pins, and it is imposible to foretell
whan it will see the last of the evils
that will result from the selection, and
fate seems to have decreed other tro
ubles for it. The Mexican situation is
frought with grave danger, and recent
indication seem to point to ultimate
and immediate results. But let this
government get complicated with Mex-
can, and she will have trouble sure.

A fine record was made last month
by Mr. Chas. D. Johnston’s cow. He
tells us that she gave 163 gals, of
strained milk from which was made
591bs. of butter. Besides about two
gallons a day used by his family and
butter for the family, he sold during

Must Keep Away From
President Taft is determined that
battles between Mexican Federala and
insurrectes shall not be fought on
American soil. He is equall^^ deter
mined that the lives of American non-
combatants shall not be endangered
by the forces of President Diaz and
those of General Madero. Future com
bats between the rebels and the forces
of the Mexican government must not
be fought out so close to the American
line as to put in jeopardy the lives and
property of Americans.
Some Little Racket.
There was a little racket Icicked up
bv members of the Florance Comedy
Concpany in Mebane, at their boarding
house Friday. There was a prolonged
argument when the matter became so
streneous that the Mayor and some of
his deputies was called into quiet
matters. The trouble was over one Of the
ladies in the play. The husband reached
the conclusion that she was just a bit
too feivid and demonstrative in a love
scene, this led to argument and the
argument led to a blow on the head of
one of the actors. The Mayor after
hearing the matter concluded he needed
about $6 to help replenish the towns
exchequer and so the actor was asked
to fork it over, which he did.
The Thursday After-noon Club was
charmingly entertained by the Misses
l^'owlers, at their home in East Mebane,
Miss Della Fowler and Mrs. Hawley,
photographed each member of the club
in a very unique and amusing way,
some of the pictures were so natural
that they were j»t Mice recognized.

and niustrated Libray the following
sixteen books were represented:

Bloom," Checkers.” “Hearts and
Masks,” “Three Men in a Boat.” The
Maid at Arms.” “Little Men.” “The

After the contest Miss Mary Stewart

of The Family Preparing to Receive

refreshments were being served. The
