Godwin, of fine Level, Johnston
County, will do the "skidoo"
stunt for Ed. Pou, and ex-Judge
W.8.0'B. Robinson will perform
the same kindly office for Armi

enough speechifying to hurt.
At twelye o clock, ttie dour lor

in the hall besides a newspaper
reporter. Fifteen or twenty min

Carolina teacher should be a t
subscriber to this Journal:
1. It will deal with real prob
lems and conditions in the North
Carolina schools discussed by!
those who are daily dealing with
them successfully: therefore, it j
will be of more practical value to;
North Carolina teachers than
any other educational publica
2. As a medium of communi
cation on educational subjects
between the heads of the State.
and the county school systems,
the public school officers and the
teachers it will be almost a neces
sity to them
3. All teachers should aid
by their support in establishing
and maintaining a powerful and
helpful agency for the promo-!
tiou of all sorts of useful educa
tion in North Carolina.

Judge Peebles Scores Lynching.
Charlotte, Aug. 15.?it seeuis
that the Superior Court judges
of the State are going to make
it hot for the lynchers on every
occasion hereafter. Strikingly
relevant to the point in question
was the charge to the grand jury
delivered to day at the opening
of court by Judge Peebles.
< >u this subject the judge said,
in part: . <
"Included in the crime of mur
der is that of lynching. The
Confederate army of North Caro
lina was famed for the great
number of men she sent to the
front, and uot a braver body of
men ever lived, I believe. But
are we to think that violations
like lynchings and lawless deeds
committed are going to furnish
the State with brave men? In
lynching there is no bravery or
courage. The reputation of the
brave troops of the State will
suffer when the State depends on
men who believe in lynching.
But men with property and
thinking tueu will believe in law
and rise up and see that an end
is made to this."
Sudden Death In Kinston.
Mr. aud Mrs. .lohn E. Hudson

Compromises in Married Life.
If marriage meant the wedding
of a saint and an angel there
would be no problems to solve,
no perfection to attain, no prog
ress to make. This m\y be why
there are no marriages in Heav
en. On earth, it is different;
husband wife are strongly hu
mau. No matter how lovingly
united or how sweet their accord,
they never have the same tem
peraments, tendencies of tastes.
Their needs are different, their
manner of looking at things is
uot identical, and in varying
ways their individualties assert
themselves. At any critical mo
ment if both express at the same
time, a desire to defer to the
other's taste, the result is fore
ordained for happiness. This
makes matrimony uot merely
union, but unison aud unity.
The spirit of compromise does
not mean a continuous perfor
mance in the way of self surren
der and self-sacrifice; it does not
mean ceasing to be a voice and
becoming an echo; it does not
imply or justify the loss of indi
viduality; it means simply the
instinctive recognition of the
best way out of a difficulty, the
quickest tacking to avoid a col
lision, the kindly view of toler
ance in the presence of weakness
aud errors of another, the cour
age to meet an explanation half
way, the generosity to be first to
apologize for a discord, the large
ness of mind that does not fear
a sacrifice of dignity in surren
dering in the interests of the
highest harmony of the two
rather than the personal vanity
of one.?September Delineator.
