hose that was but a little thicker
than musquito nettinpr, exposing
their limbs to the cold air, prop-
ed up on shot heels that look
unsighty and are decidedly un
comfortable, and must essenstlaly
prove a great strain on the spinal
nerves- Then there are a large
contingent who wear very low
neck waist exposing their throats
to cold drafts of ah*. Now if
these things are right, what is
wrong about their skirts? Let
them wear what they please, but
it looks that some one, brother,
father or husband should feel
surficient interest in the dear
creatures to insist upon them
wearing shoes that were made
with some regard for comfort,
or hose that was only a shade w
better than bare legs.
FIRE INSURANCE IN THE
The Louisville Courier-Journal gives
some valuable information on a subject
thatii of very great importance in
North Carolina just at the present
time. One great fact brought out in
the article, and one that we wish to
impress on the readers is that in these
30 years past 14 of the southern states
have sent away from this section the
vast sura of $639,517,275 Of course
this sum represents the amount paid
for fire insurance, but a very small per
cent, was ever returned in the form
of losses. These millions representing
the toil of the men of the south have
gone to the north and to Europe to
swell their riches. North Carolina is
paying millions for her fire insurance
each year and while it is an unsafe and
unwise thing for the state to send out
all this money each year to the north
and to Earoya yet the worst feature to
US is that tke people of the state are
having to pay out $500,000 more each
year for fire insurance than they should
These are facts, and they are
facts that wouki have put any
one to thinking outside of the
crowd that misrepresented pub
lic senthnent at the siting of the
last (Jeneral Assemble.
North Carolina is a great state,
she has produced some great
men, many of whom to day hold
positions of high honor, and
trust in other section of this
great nation, but the simpering
fs7^1c£udL nrith.. tJoiSjr
dull to every appeal to reason
made to members of the last
General Assembly do not belong
to that class.
It was ignorance indifference
or mercenary motives that dead
ened their sense of right, their
knowledge of duty. Every com
munity should ascertain the
standing of its member in the
last Legislature, and if with in
difference or deliberation they
cooperated with the crowd to
continue the fire insurance bur
dens upon the people, then they
should be branded with an in
delible stay home mark,
that will last all times.
HOW ABOUT IT?
A party said to us the day
Lewis V^est was electrocuted,
that West was under the im
pression that his sins were for
given, and he was going straight
to Heaven. Mumford the man
that he killed was deprived of
his life without five minutes no
tice, and if he was not a Chris
tian man at the moment he was
shot then he possibly died with
out repentance. How about it?

In adition to diverting the tide
of emigration that was flowing
from Europe to the United States
to Canada, there are large num
bers leaving the northern boun-
dry of this country and going to
Canada, Canada has not a tariff
wall that pens up her citizens to
be robbed as is the case in this
country. You can live cheaper
and better there on very much
less money. This is the land of
graft, and legal theft.
AT THE ATUNTIO HOTEL
NO DIFFERENCE TO HIM.
We do not presume it will
make any difference to Grompers
that 23 indictments have been
found against the McNamaras
charging them with murder, ar
son, and conspiracy and a num
ber of o*;her heineous crimes,
and with apparent proof surfici
ent to convict them upon some
at least of these capital charges.
Law abiding people are get
ting real weary of such flannel
mouthed uttances as Gompers has
given vent too, and are strictly
in a humor to see that the Mc
Namaras, and their ilk get jus
tice, and justice does not mean
a subversion of the law as con
templated by Gompers.
Labor led by Gompers and the
McNamaras, and capital led by
Aldrich, Cannon, Payne, and the
coal baron Bears, are all alike,
inimical to the welfair of this
county, they are all anarchist
under different and dissimilar
combinations and are striving by
unlawfull means to wring from
the middle class and unearned
increment, fighting over the
spoils that a government makes
possible in its grinding favori
tism, The whole outfit should
be put down, at whatever sacra-
fice or cost
Preparing For Record
Manager Baxter now at Morehead

“plabe of pleasure" has spread far

numbers of people in an about the

On the second floor a number of

railroads an unusually successful season
is confidently looked for.

As the season is now approaching
when all children desire to go bare
footed, it is well that they should be
warned that this pleasure does not
come without danger. Until recent
years v;e attached little importance to
ground-itch, or toe-itch, so commonly
seen among bnrefooted chidren who go
about in the dew or other damp places.
We now know that ground-itch is the
initial symptom of hookworm disease
and that it would not develope unless
the soil had been polluted by sufferers
from the disease. The myriads of eggs
passing daily along with the excreta
from their bodies develope into tiny
microscopic worms too small to be seen.
These, when allowed to come in conta.*t
with the skin, burrow through producing
an attack of ground-itch.
Now Selling Fast
The backward season has not retarded the
sale of spring suits here—we have sold great
numbers of them—because the ladies have
learned to appreciate the extraordinary
values offered at this store.

The Jersey Cow.
Away down south in Dixie Land,
We have the Jersey cow;
She’s the biggest paying thing we
I tell you that right now.
She lifts the mortgage from the farm.
And feeds the babies too;
She pays household bills all right,
Each day the whole year through.
She fills the pail with nice, rich cream
When you put her to the test;
Just feed her well and treat her kind.
And she will do the rest.
She’ll doubly pay for all the bran.
And meal and hulls you buv;
And when you sum up all a^'counts,
You’ll forget that feed is high.
She’s grateful too for favors shown,
Just like a little petting, too;
She gets so close to a woman’s heart,
Just as the children do.
She is the dearest little cow.
With a disposition kind;
She's high toned too in all respects.
Her Tv»pr nn one can find.
The farmer needs no credit book.
He’s always happy now;
Next to his wife and little kids.
He loves the Jersey cow.
Three cheers for the little Jersey cow
She’s a treasure that we hold;
The poor man’s friend the rich man’s
She’s worth her weight in gold.
