A Large List
We have added a large number to
our subscription lis-t lately, and it is
possible that among them some name
may have been incorrectly reported,
if such is the case please advise us as
we want every one to get the Leader
that is entitled to it.
A Fine Lot of Walnut
Mr. Charles R. Bayns, is hauling a
quantity of walnut timber to the freight
yard at Mebane, for foreign shipment,
that is the best of its character, we
have ever seen. The logs are from 20
to 24 inches in diameter and contain a
fine hard black heart to within a short
distance of the bark. We do not
belive there is any walnut lumber
superior to this in this country. Owing
to its very hard texture this lumber is
not so desireable to cabinet makers
but for this very reason it must be
regarded as « superior wood. Mr.
Bayns will make a shipment of between
twelve ard fifteen tiuMsand feet. It
goes to Germany.
THE CONTEST CLOSES.
A Card of Thands.
Please accept my thanks
for the handsome piano awarded ms
by the judges in your subscription

known of a fairer, or more impartial

New Liquor Tax Urged

creasing the cost of licenses until
prohibition shall haye been secured in
the District of Columbia,” it was said
in a resolution adopted by the union
yesterday at Dumbarton Avenue Meth
odist Episcopal Church, would result.
The union also adopted a resolution
asking the press to print news of crime
And “sensation" in classified form.
Excellent idea it is.
Thanks For The Buggy
I want to express to you
my sincere thanks for the nice rubber
tired buggy the judges awarded me in
your subscription contest, I worked for
the piano, and wanted it, but as the
other party had the most votes I could
not win. I shall prize the buggy very
much. I am sure I was treated fair.
Thanks to the Editor
I want to thank you for the
nice ring given me in the contest. I
worked hard for the piano, but I did
not get votes enough to win it.
Depriving Electors Of
There has been two elections in Meb-
ane in which a number of its citizens
have been depiived of their rights of
suffrage, and it is some ones fault that
such is the case. There is a newspaper
in Mebane, and its editor is always
anxious to give its citizens any in
formation that would be of value to
them. Notices should be published
stating what is required to qualify a
man to vote. In no sense can it be
regarded as the correct thing to neg
lect, or fail to give the public this in

Miss Maie Reynolds. Tuesdav morning
at 10:30 A. M., the declaimers contest
began, for young boys this was truly
a royal battle, Mesrs. Hiram Cheek,
Chandler Cates, John Crawfoad and
LuthearfCheek were the contestants.
The judges decided that Mr. John
Crawford won by one third of 1 per
cent. Next came a lecture by Prof. J.
H. Hysmlth, of Wake Forest which
held the audience spell bound. Prof.
Hysmith is a fine speaker and knows
how to hit sledge hammer blows for
education, he favors a local tax for
education, and presented some facts
that were convincing to any man who
has not sworn to be “agin” everything
that in the least touches his purse. At
1:00 P. M , dinner was served on the
grounds, this by no means being the
least enjoyed of the program. At 2:30
P. M., the young ladies contested for
the reciters medal, each one acquitted
herself with honor, and by doing ber
very best each won, what no one can
win without doing their best, self
mastery. The medal was awarded to
Miss Thelma Reynolds. In the evening
a ball game between the Sophomore of
the University class and the Orange
Grove team was played, the Sophomore
class won by the score of 10 to 9.
