Camp Folk will be complete, and the
statement of Secretary Baker was ut
tered with a finality that there would
ie no mistaking of his intentions.
Senator Simmons had a second con
ference with the secretary of war, but
the visit was to no avail. In fact, as
related in this correspondence on Sun
day, the war department had already
formulated plans for uprooting the
promising war time youngster at Ra
leigh. The camp has not had a shad
ow of a chance to outlive the world
Var. Tank camp warfare is blood
thirsty, and the complete consuest of
Germany should forever banish from
the earth another conflict of like pro
portions. Moreover, the Raleigh-camp has not
set well with a great body of Raleigh
citizens, according to news that comes
to Washington. A monster petition
has just been filed with the office of
Senator Simmons urging that the
amp be annihilated.
Naval Air Station Permanent.
Secretary of the Navy Josephus
Daniels in a letter to Gov..T. W.
Bickett makes known the intention of
the Navy Department to establish as
permanent the naval air station re
cently located at Camp Glenn, near
Jlorehead City. The property will
either be acquired or leased for a con
siderable term of years.
"As it is the policy of the depart
ment to establish permanent stations
only upon property which it owns or
holds under a long term lease," writes
Secretary Daniels to Governor Bick
ett, "it seems proper at this time to
refer to your letter of August 23, 1918,
In which you tendered the "full and

In view of the above, it is requested
that the department be advised wheth

from. Greens-boro that owing to the
prevalence of Spanish influenza in that

Convention-there would have to be
postponed. The convention was to

and 'the physicians of the city advised
that for delegates to come to Greens

Single Stalk Cotton Culture.
In an experiment conducted in four
North Carolina counties, the profit
ableness of single stalk culture of cot
ton was determined by the United
States Department of Agriculture.
Nine experiments were conducted in
Edgecombe, Duplin, Sampson, and
f raven. There were three experi
ments in Edgecombe county, one each
at Whitakers, Battleboro and Conetoe.
The merits of single stalk culture
over .the old-time methods varied from
three to twenty-six per cent. In one
instance, where three pickings were
made, single stalk culture yielded
more seed cotton at each picking than
the old method. Among the farmers
who negotiated the experiment were
W. K. Benson, of Battleboro; L. L.
Draughton, of Whitakers; W. R. Fel

Buying Land for Camp Site.
Fayetteville. Judge H. G. Connor,
of Raleigh, presiding judge of the Fed

connection with Camp Bragg with G.
H. Wood, first assistant to Major
Holden, chief of the Land Unit at
Washington. Judge Connor and Mr.
Carr met Mr. Wood here and went at
once to the camp site, accompanied by
C. E. Pilat, planning engineer.
No statement was given out for pub
lication, but it is understood that there
are no new developments in the situa

land for the camp. The purchasing of
the land is going ahead. None of the
camp area is being leased, purchase

Wilmington's Anxiety Allayed.
Wilmington. Skittish feeling that
the advent of peace may mean the exit
of some of Wilmington's shipyard
prospects, following the announcement
at the Liberty concrete yard, that or
ders had been received to eliminate
the provisions for six big concrete
tankers, and build just two 3,500-ton
cargo ships, have been somewhat al
layed by the declaration, apparently
from official sources, that come what
may in the way of government work,
the Liberty concrete yard is here to
stay, and that it will build for pri
vate contracts should government
work be eventually stopped.
There has been no diminution of
energy at the Carolina 5 steel yard
where four 9,500-ton cargo ships are
Schools Close Till New Year.
Albemarle. All public schools in
Albemarle have been closed until af
ter Christmas, due to the still some
what prevalent epidemic ' of Spanish
influenza, in town. The schools had
been closed for several weeks wtih
teachers waiting for the board of
health to raise the quarantine. Monday
the schools all opened up, only to be
almost immediately closed again and
now the school board thinks it best,
while conditions are at present not
alarming, to keep the children out un
til after the Christmas holidays. A
rather remarkable fact in this connec
tion is that, so far, not a single case
of the disease has developed among
the students of the Albemarle Nor

Fayetteville. Boyd Hill, 23 years
old, was instantly killed, by Atlantic
Coast Line passenger train No. 52,

LESSON FOR DECEMBER 8
JOSEPH MADE RULER OF EGYPT.
. LESSON ..TEXT-Genesls 4144. '
. GOLDEN TEXT He that l faithful in
a very little la faithful also in much.
Luke 16:10. -
DEVOTIONAL READING Psalms 4S.
ADDITIONAL MATERIAL Genesis 89:
Thirteen long years have passed
since his brethren sold him. They
have been years of fiery testing for
Joseph, but his faith Is triumphant.
There is a mighty contrast between
Joseph in the pit at Dothan- and Jo
seph as prime "minister of Egypt.
I. Joseph Made Prime Minister of
Egypt (w. 38-44).
L The Occasion (w. 14:ii2).
It Is the interpretation of Pharaoh's
dreams. In his dreams Pharaoh saw
seven fat klne coming out of the river,
followed by eeven lean ones, which de
voured the-Tat' ones. This dream was
followed by another In which he saw
seven ears of corn come up on one
stalk, rank and good, only to be de
voured by seven thin ones. These
dreams produced uneasiness In Phara
oh's mind. Being thus troubled over
them he sent for the magicians and
wise men of Egypt to interpret them
to him. Upon their failure to interpret
them, the chief butler calls to mind the
prisoner who had Interpreted his
dreams two years before. Pharaoh
hastily brings Joseph from prison and
places his dreams before him. Joseph
disclaimed wisdom for himself, but
confidently asserted his faith In -the
wisdom of God. God Is pleased with
those who will thus lean upon him In
the crucial hour, and will never disap
point them (James 1:5). Little did
Joseph's brethren, the Ishmaelltes who
carried him Into Egypt, or Potiphar
whose slave he became, realize whal
the future would bring to him. His
years of suffering and waiting were
part of God's plan for his discipline
and education. It is God's law for
those who would reign, that they suf
fer. "If we suffer, we shall also
reign with him" (2 Timothy 2:12).
Joseph's exaltation from the state of
humility is a fine illustration of
Christ's humility and exaltation (Phil
ipplans 2:9, 10).
II. Joseph's Naturalization (v. 45).
As soon as Pharaoh thus exalted him
he changed his name to Zapnath-paa-neah,
an Egyptian word haying vary
ing designations; as "Salvation of the
world," "The prince of life of the
world," "The revealer of secrets,"
"The food of life," etc. No doubt it
was Pharaoh's purpose to designate
him as the preserver of life, the re
vealer o secrets, the interpreter of
dreams, and the author of the plan by
which Egypt was saved from the awful
famine. He thus was naturalized, and
his civil status rendered compatible
with his official rank. Then Asenath,
the daughter of the priest, was given
him to wife. Intermarriage with this
caste completed his naturalization by
elevating him to secial position. Jo
seph's elevation was to save the
world from famine. Christ's eleva
tion was to save the world from spir
itual death. All unknown to his breth
ren, the Jews, Christ Is now at the
Tight hand of the Father, the Savior
of the world from Its famine of death.
As Joseph received a Gentile bride in
the time of his rejection and exalta
tion, so Christ is now receiving a Gen
tile bride (Romans 11:25).
III. Joseph's Wise Administration
He first made a careful survey of
the land, then organized his forces and
looked after 'the details of tfhe work.
He did not use bis power and position
for himself, but to save others. He did
not idle his time away, for he knew
that only seven short f years remained
In which to work.
The Loom of Life.
It is a solemn thought that every
one of us carries about with him a
mystical loom, and we are always
weaving weave, weave, weave this
robe which we wear, every thought
s thread of the warp, every action a
thread of the weft. We weave it, and
we dye it, and we cut it, and we
flitch it, and then we put it on and
wear it; and it sticks to us. Like a
snail that crawls about your garden
patches and makes its shell by a pro
cess of secretion from out of Its own
substance, so you and I are making
that mysterious solemd thing, we call
character, moment by moment. It Is
our own self modified by our actions.
Character Is the precipitate from the
stream of conduct which, like the Nile
delta, gradually rises solid and firm
above the parent river, and confines
Its flow. Alexander Maclaren.
Look Where You Are Going.
We instinctively distrust the driver
of an automobile who turns around in
tis car to talk to somebody on the back
seat We have reason to distrust him,
and to resent his attitude, for many a
life : has been sacrificed to .that weak
ness on the part of motorists. The
most careful driver may have an. acci
dent sometime, but the one who does
not look where be ts going Is sure to
jet himself or others Into trouble.

THE PRICE vOF VICTORY NOT
THE LAW PLAINLY UI3 DOWN
Intimation Given That the Man, or
Men Who Cauesd the War Must
Meet Merited Punishment.
London. David Lloyd George, the
British prime minister, in a speech at
New Castle, said the victory of the
entente allies had been due to the
ceaseless valor of their men and that
It would be a lesson to anybody who
in the future thought that they, as the
Prussian war lords hoped, "could over
look' this little island in their reckon
ing' "We are now approaching the peace
conference," the premier continued.
"The price of victory Is not vengeance
or retribution. It is prevention. First
of all what about those people whom
we have received without question for
years to our shores; to whom we give
equal rights with our own sons and
daughters, and who abused that hos
pitality to betray the land.
The second question was the ques
tion of indemnities, the premier add
ed. In every court of justice through
out the world the party which lost has
had to bear the cost of the litigation.
When Germany defeated France she
established the principle. ,
"But I must use one word ot warn
ing," said Mr. Lloyd George. Ger
many is not to be allowed to pay the
indemnity by dumping cheap goods
upon us. That is the only limit in
principle we are laying down. She
must not be alowed to pay for her
wanton damage and devastation by
dumping cheap goods and wrecking
"There is a third and last point. Is
no one to be made responsible for
the war? Somebody has been respon
sible for a war that has taken the
lives of millions of the best ybung
men of Europe. Is not anyone to be
made responsible for that? If not, all
I can say is that if that is the case,
there is one justice for the poor
wretched criminal and another for
kings and emperors."

Washington. Camp Greene is to
