Eastern Carolina Hard Hit
Most of the counties in eastern and

$6,500,000 For School Purposes.
North Carolina will spend for new
school buildings within the next year
approximately six and one;half mil
lion dollars, by far the largest attempt
in the educational history of the state.
The cities of the state will spend
about three million dollars of this sum,
the smaller towns about two million
and the rural districts about one mil
lion jmd a half, according to. an esti
mate recently completed by State Su
Conversion of Overman.
Raleigh women read with no sensa
tion of admiration Senator Overman's
belated conversion to the "cause" and
marveled how it all came.
The senator's views interested a
great many Raleigh people; the wo
men more than the men, because the
women were more uncertain about
him than were the men. The femin
inists never quite saw the chance of
getting him straight before another
campaign; they believed him by blood
and by marriage an irrevocable stand
patter. The effect of Overman's con
version will be electrical. It isn't be
cause the name is magical or because
he is the handsomest suffragist' out
side the feminine persuasion. It is
notice to the world that "woman suf
frage is coming" here as well as the
Report Draws Back Fire.
The report of Dr. B. E. Washburn,
Inspector of the state board of health,
recently made to Dr. W. S. Rankin,
secretary of the board, regarding sani
tary coditions at the Oceanic hotel,
Wrightsville Beach, is declared an
"unwarranted attack upon the charac
ter of the hotel" in a statement by
Manager J. J. Rogers.
Admitting faulty conditions at the
time of the inspection, but attributing
the same to the overtaxed capacity of
the hotel because of the ourning of
the Seashore several days before,
Manager Rogers says If "Dr. Wash
burn had been as able and as willing
to give us definite instructions as to
what he required as he was to offer
destructive criticism, his services
would have been of much more value
Colored Agricultural Meetings.-
Mr. C. R. Hudson, chief of the di
vision of farm demonstration work,
has completed arrangements for a se
ries of thirty agricultural meetings lor
negro farmers and their wives to be
held over North Carolina during the
week of August 25 to 0, inclusive. In
this series of meetings he will co-operate
'with Mr. T. B. Parker, director
of the farmers institute division, who
will pay the travel and subsistence ex
penses of those negro demonstration
agents who will have charge of the
different meetings. Each local negro
agent will arrange for the different
meetings to be held in his territory.
Corn Crop Under Water.
The dyke that guarded the corn
fields of the State Prison farm in Hal
ifax county from Roanoke river,
broke and three thousand acres of
corn went under water. This was,
perhaps, the biggest piece of flood
news that, "broke" and had been ex
pected since the first of the week.
News that the dyke had bursted was
conveyed to Superintendent Collie in
a telegram from the station agent at
Caledonia. This is a heavy loss com
bined with rebuilding of the dyke.

Women seem to have become much
addicted to wearing rfeckpieces of

shops and departments that carry
neckwear reveals such a world of it
and such a variety of it that there
must be a great demand for all kinds
of neckwear. Many of the pieces are

These include scarfs made of plushes,
ostrich boas, ostrich capes and capes
of marabout feathers or marabout fin

is used in borders and bands in scarfs
of gold and silver tissue. ;
Some of the new plushes us6d for
scarfs do not attempt a close imita
tion of fur but suggest the most pop
lar summer furs, as ermine and broad
tail and moleskin. Besides these
there' are some handsome satin scarfs
and capes trimmed with narrow bands

When tailors became scarce and the
work of making street clothes went
into the hands of dressmakers in Parjs,
the one-piece "all-day" dress began jto
replace suits. With the approval of

made great headway in America and

early showings of fall styles, some

These dresses are made up In the
same quiet colors and pf the same ma

a- wider range than are, usually pre

A Bodice of Ribbon.
The- bodiceVmade entirely of ribbon
is a feature of midsummer dance

voile, lace and georgette.
It has the appearance of a suit with
skirt and sh-c-rfe box coat belted in. But
the coat turns' out to be only a bodice,
with fronts lengthened below the nar
row belt anil disappearing at the sides
under a seam in the skirt. It has a
satin vest, prettily embroidered, and a
few very large bone buttons emphasize

lapels into which the collar lengthens.
