A New Enterprise.
There are a plenty of men* in the
public service in different capacites
who ought to have been taught some
lessons in courtesy before they entered
them. We understand that in serving
the public there is much to try a mans
patience, but no man h^ a right to
serve in any position in which his
business is to deal directly with people
as a public servant without a determined
purpose td serve as a courteous public
servant, and if they can not learn this
important lesson, then the public should
ask for their removal to some other
sphere of u>efullness. If this line of
policy was systematicly pursued there
would be less supercilious arrogance,
and impertinance to be endured at the
hands of men who are paid to give their
time to public affairs.

The Storm last Friday night was a
hummer. Late in the evening about
six o’clock, a cloud which had been
gathering'in the North West burst with
alltiie fury of a western gale. The
wind drove a cloud of dust through the
streets, and ripped off limbs of trees,
and for a time seemed it would over
turn houses. During the blow a large
tree in front of the Post^ Office was
torn up by its roots and fell across the
street, entirely impeeding trafic on this
street, at this point. The Storm was
terific at Durham and Raleigh. At

Train Crew Get Poison
A wholesale poisoning took place
near New London, Stanly county, TIiut^
day last afternoon, when a whole train
crew partook of buttermilk, causing
ptomaine poison. With a view to
good dinner a quanity of fresh milk
was placed in the cooler on the engine
of a f*^ght train. In some way the
milk became infect^ and the entire
party, with the exception of the con
ductor, had a narrow escape from death.
The only member of the party to
escape was Conductor C. A. Surratt,
who did not partake of the milk. Soon
after the dinner all were seized at the
same time with the poison and a
physician worked hard for four hours.

musquitos and the heat of the in
terior, to place where the fragrant
salt sea air, woo’s back life and vigor,
and the breeze fans the cheeks to the
rosy tint of health. The home of
ozone, the most vital element in the
airy economy of nature. It is here
where mird, and body may indulge
that rest and recreation so essential to
repair the wear and wast incident to a
worky day life. Whether on health,
or pleasure bent every required condi
tion is happily met. In dancing, in
the finest arid largest ball room in the
south where slippered feet, and fairy
forms float in rhymthic time with music
almost devine, whether in yachting,
surf bathing, or the various innocent
games there, is always a diversion to
I meet every capricious whim.

pated every wish in preparing fo> the

The Mebane Bedding Company
makes it a point to do things, besides
making an inmense quantities of one of
best and most comfortable spiral bed
springs, and a mattress that few
equals and no superiors, and winning
for them in the field of trade a flatter
ing appreciation, they have equipped
a department in this large manufact
uring plant for the construction of a
perfected baby protector, consisting o
a screen made of mosquito netting ar
ranged over a light frame, much like
the top of a baby carriage- This top
can be opened, or closed at the option
of the user. They make them in two
sizes, and when placed over the baby
they thoroughly protect him from mus-
puitors, or flies, but giving him ample
ventilation. Its a simple contrivance
easily, and conveniently worked, yet
excee^ngly effective for the purpose
for which it was designed.
The Mebane Bedding Company’s
plant is eqipned for turning out 500
of these Protectors per day. They have
orders that will require high presure
to meet during this summer; All of
f-hia muat be very gratifying to the
Mebane Bedding Company, but a fea
ture in the matter that is of concern
and interest to Mebane, is that it gives
employment to 16 girls and several men
making an aditional pay roll to the
town, of over one hundred dollars per
week. The help is paid good wages,
and the work is light and agreeab'e.
It is such things as these that helps
to build up Mebane.

Captain Emerson’s Wif^_
Gets Divorce And Big
^ An order was signed by Judge
Heuisler in the circuit court Monday
28tii, granting Mra. Emelie A. Emerson
an absolute divorce from Capt. Isaac
E. Emerson, the prominent hotel
builder, drug manufacturer, and yachts
man, under the cross bill filed by Mrs.
Emerson late in March of Baltimore.
Under the order Mrs. Emerson will
receive $28,000 a year alimony in
monthly installments, the first install
ment be paid Monday, and on the same
date of each month, while her lawyers,
William Shepard Bryan, Jr., and
George Whitelock, must be paid a
counsrl fee of $5,000 each by‘ Captain
Emerson. The divorce was granted
on the ground of desertion*
Capt. Emerson started in life at
Chapel Hill. He has much money
rapid and got square in the time light.
On first reading Mr. Miles
article I understood Him to mean that
- -the votes of Mebane reminded him of
“dumb driven cattle” but upon a more
careful reading I note that just a little
before the usa of that very odious and
insulting comparison he referred to the
Board of Alderman and that im
mediately after its use he addressed
himself to the Board.
I therefore speak Tor the purpose of
defending our board; in this important
matter as indeed in all other matters
the board is expected to carry out the
wishes of the people, particularly wnen
their wishes are expressed so clearly
and positively as in the recent mass
meeting called for the purpose of
learning directly from the people them
selves their wishes as to how they
wanted their money spent. I have
attendsd a great many meetings of a
similar kind and I have never known a
more positive declaration on the part of
the people and I am sure that I am
safe in saying that fully 90 per cent of
those who attended that meeting ex
pressed themselves most decidedly as
favoring sidewalks rather than a
macadamized road, and every other
one, without a single exception, ex
pressed himself as being entirely willing
to leave the matter with the board.
Moreover this meeting was more
largely attended than any meeting of
its kind held in Mebane for many years
and its special feature was found in the
fact that an expression was had from
every one present.
It is true, as Mr. Miles says that
the meeting which decided for the
bond issue understood that the greater
part of the money to be realized would
have to be spent for the purpose of
grading and macadamizing the road |
which waa to serve ^in the connecting
link between the two good roads ahready
up to the edge of the town, but it is
also true that they expected some side
walks. It is doubtless true that they
had the hope, even then, that they
would get more sidewalks than at that
time appeared possible.
Since then the people have more
fully realized that the money to be
spent was their own money and that
they had the right to say how it should
be spent; since then their ideas as to
how this money should be spent have
crystallized into an almost unanimous
demand for sidewalks and they have
said so most positively and have
instructed the board accordingly.
Under such conditions the board
must obey the mandate of the people
and in so doing it cannot be justly
charged with being like “dumb driven
An apology from Mr. Miles is in

At a mass meeting of the patrons
of the Orange Grove school. Miss
Male Reynolds was unanimously elected
principal for the coming year. ^ The
people propose to have an eight months
school, the necessary money to be
raised by subscription. Orange Grove
does not propose that any community
shall be more interested in the education
of their children than she. These
children represent the pride, hope and
ambition of their fathers and mothers,
and the community as a whole, and
the parent who fails to educate his
child will live to regret his action. Miss
Reynolds has won an enviable reputa
tion as a teacher and we believe that
everyone will contribute towards
making this eight months ^public school
a reality. Lets show to the world that
Orange Grove believes in the eternal
right and justice of the education of
the minds of her children.

Domestic Trouble Of The
A couple of Derringers up in Pitts
burg have been causing as much trou
ble as if they had been six-shooters,
Krag-Jorgensens, or even thirteen-inch
guns. And yet instead of being weapons
of offense, they are merely man and
wife. It is alleged on the part of the
defense that Mrs. Derringer has a very
unconventional habit of sleeping “to
ward the foot of the bed,” with her
pink toes in her husband’s face, so
that when one kicks and the other
snores there is all the raw material for
a domestic riot. It is further allied
the lady so far dissemMed her love as
to break a sugar bowl over Mr. Der

interesting to know whether she threw
the flour in handfuls or hurled the bag.
Trust Problem Is Menace
Within ten years, according to Sen
ator Albert B. Cummins, the United
States will be face to face with a set
tlement of its gnevancea against the
trusts, either peaceably and bylaw, or
“in the manner that has been in exist
ence for 2,000 years—the revolution of
violence, terrcr, and bloodshed."
Senator Cummins spoke last week to
fhift yearns graduates of the Washington
College of Law Washington, D. C.
Mr. Cummins several times declared
that he expected an acute crisis within
a decade over economic problems.
“You will be face to face,” he said,
“with such a condition that you wiil
ask your government to regi^'^te
prices of all the products of
turers, just as now the Intarsir .c : ^
merce Commission regulates the
mercial intercourse of the Uniteo
“The next step will be socialism, or
else the restoration of competition to
its proper economic place in the lives
of the American people.”
Stoiator Cummins admitted that com
petition has been called cruel and
wasteful, but said he would rather
have it, “with all the waatefulneMa, its
evil, and ita cruelty, than that one
