AN EYE ON CAROLINA
Northern Papers Have Idea
There is Warm Campaign
On in This State.
Cotton to Spain Licensed.
Washington, May 14. Thq war
trade board has licensed for ship
taent td Spain one month's supply of
cotton. Eight thousand barrels of oil,
for which the board has issued a li
cense edme time ago, has not been
r Shipped, because Spain wanted it in
tin containers instead of in barrels.
A compromise was reached whereby
It was to b& sent across in bulk.

devils, who arrived here on their

(Spetcial to The Dispatch.)
Raleigh, May 14. North Carolina's
coming primary interests the nation
so much that New York and Boston
papers call for half columns on it
and some! low have the impression
that a contest is on.
The tickets have gone out and in
many resp;cts it is the least militant
campaign u years. If 1914 is waived,
m which year the republicans failed
to put up casdidates in . several dis
tricts that showed county majorities
enottgh to elect republicans, 1918 is
the least exciting prospect in years.
But New York and Boston believe
that there .really is something doing
in the se.ua-torial primary and hope
everlasting springs in the republican
breast north when a chance to hit
Claude KitcShin or Yates Webb with
an axe apptwrs to exit.
Mr. Webb has plenty to worry about
if he wishes to do so. He has Judge
W. E. CouncOl, democrat, and a much
more serious one in Charles A. Jonas.
Any republican who could get mad
enough at a taper to stop it at a time
when it was too rank on Roosevelt
will be able to? talk war to a fine con
clusion. Mr. Jonas is a Roosevelt
man not one bjit proud that "he kept
us out of war,'" and Mr. Jonas lives
in a county that has plenty of Ger
man and Dutch descendants.
More than ha lf a million ballots
have been mailad. The board of elec
tions figures on about four to the man.
In Yates Webb's district there are
allotted 90,000. In the third there are
65,000 and m the first 28,000. The
withdrawal of W. S. Bailey, of Man
teo, from the first congressional dis
trict fight will eJiminate contests in
nearly every first district county.
There are 70,000 ballots provided lb
the thirteenth judicial district, 40,000
in the seventh. Wake and Franklin,
and 40,000 in the fourteenth. There
are 45,000 "in the fifth judicial dis
trict for solicitor.
Provision has been made for ab
sentee voting and q?iite a few have
used the privilege in local election.
Seniors Called to Colors.
The call of the great bulk of se
niors at the North Carolina College
of Agriculture and Engineering takes i
from commencement the usual social f
interest, more than 40 of the gradu-j
ating class having gone to training!
camps where they prepare for officers.
The 1917 commencement caught a I
percentage aboufcvas large, though the
draft had not then gone into effect.
That law wasn't necessary as all the
boys were anxious to go. They have
been credited with their work and
will receive their degrees. They will
be absent, of course, from the com
mencement exercises at the close of
Wake, Forest college, just 16 miles
away, is hit just as-hard as the local
institution. Two-thirds of the gradu
ating class will be present, but many
have been out because the country
had called. There are 72 candidates
At Wake Forest this year Rev. John
E. White, of Anderson, S. C, will

The Watch That Tells Time
In The Dark
VOU can buy this watch for only $2.25 from the deal
in vni i r nwrn
It is an Ingersoll Radiolitev the latest invention of
the famous House of Ingersoll, which has made 50 million
watches in the last 25 years.'
This Radiolite looks like any good watch when you see it
in the day time, but at night it is wonderful. Both of th
hands and all the figures on the face glow like stars, and you
can tell the time no matter how dark it is. A substance con
taining real radium makes these figures stand out, and this
brightness is guaranteed to last for as many years as the watch
If you work in the night shift in a factory, or in a mine or
on a farm, you will find this the most satisfactory watch you
can buy. You do not-need to light a match or get to a lamo
in order to know the time.
Ask your dealer to let you have one over night, and if it is not
just what we say, you can have your money back next morning.
