Two Billion for Liquor.
The recent report made by the com

eral Presbyterian Assembly which
met at Atlantic City N. J. says in part
that the per capita drinking bill for
1910 was $23.17. Multiply this by 4,60
per cent, the size of the average Ameri
can family according to the census and
we have $11,18 for the annual drinking
bill of the average American family.
The report says the people of the
United States spent 256,324,447 for
liquor last year.

“And the cat came back” So bro
ther Louis Puryear finds he is called
upon to defend something, or some
body. but he don’t know who, or what.
Seemingly he is anxious to show us
what brand of collar he is wearing.
It would seem that brother Puryear for
got all about what the money was vot
ed for injthe bond election, and he seems
to have forgotten what was one of the
main issues in our municipal election
held in May when a Mayor artd board
of Alderman was elected for Mebane.
Did he hear at that time any threat to
run another ticket because members of
the board had up to then expressed their
intention of favoring the building ot a
macadam road across Mebane as was
first intended? Did he hear anything
aoout the employment or an other civil
engineer than the one that was em
ployed for reasons very plain to most
people. Was the citizens meeting to
which Mr Puryear refers to called for
the purpose of getting an honest ex
pression in regard to the street paving,
or was it to be lead to a favorable ex
pression of what was wanted by cer
tain people? simply stampeded.
Mr. Puryear knew what I meant
when I said “may be some of
these days the people wont be like
dumb driven cattle” and he purposely
tried to put upon what I said a mean

that so? May be you could lead a mass
meeting, much like you could find

railroad hills, and filling in to improve

before the people of Mebane before

could have been carried? hardly. I

Death Of Mary E. Scott.
On last Thursday evening. May 25
about half passed 6 o’clock God called
from her home the soul of Mrs. Mary
Scott, and took it to dwell with him
on high. For about 71 years she has
toiled on this earth through trouble,
sorrow and afliction, but now she is
gone to dwell with her husbands and
children and friends who had gone on
to Gods palace above where she can
rejoice In the garden of ever blooming
flowers where no more suffering, pain,
trouble nor death can desturb her
peacful rest. So sad was it to part
from this beloved and kind friend, as
she was a precious and fond mother,
and p rand-mother Around her bed
gathered her children and grand child
ren to spend the last hours of stay on
this earth with her happy preasence.
Mas. Maty Scott was 71 years of age
twice married first to Lemie Hall last
to John Scott both summoned to their
final rest many years ago.
She was the mother of six children
three of whom are dead, they were as
follows: Lenie, Martha and Sudie Hall.

She was a member of Mebane
Baptist church. The funeral services
were conducted at Mt. Zion church by
Rev. Mr. Edwards pastor of Mebane
M. P., church. She was quietly laid to
rest in Mt. Zion cemetery to await the
great awakening of the blessed morn.
May the lord bless her son who was
so faithful from first to last.
A precious one from us is gone one
who will be missed in her tender cares,
one whom shall never return from that
heavenly home where she tarys.
Altho we miss her tender smiles and
cheerful glee, but bless her precious
name she is better far than we.
No more on this earth we shall see
her face or hear her piarting grace,
but in heavens happy home we will
meet her face to face.
