It Really Doe* Relieve Rheumatism.
Everybody who is afflicted with
Rheumatism in any form should
by means keep a bottle of
Sloan'* Liniment on hand. The
minute you feel pain or soreness
in a joint ot muscle, bathe it with
Sloan's Liniment. Do not rub it.
Sloan's penetrates almost immedi
ately right to the seat of pain, re
lieving the hot. tender, swollen
fuelling and making the part easy
and comfortable. Get a bottle of
Sloan's Liniment for 25c. of any
druggist and have it in the house
?against Golds, Sore and Swollen
Joints. Lumbago. Sciatica and
like ailments. Your money back
if not satisfied, but it does give
almost instant relief. Buy a bot

Don't forget that the smallest

for hoping someone to make life
brighter. Don't fail to seize it.

Kind words cost but little, but
may mean much to a sorrowing

Don't forget thgt papers and

Don't forget that your faults,

, LEGISLATION THAT FARMERS
V: UNION WANTS.
The state council of the North
Carolina Farmers' Union has out
lined the legislation that the union
demands of this Uenral Assembly.
The council is in favor of the Tor
rens system, already law, but
wants the maximum charge for re
gistration to average about S2S.
The council will a^k the General
Assembly to petition Congress for
rural credits legislation. Race
segregation is another matter that

HK DOSENT KNUCKLE TO COTTON.
Mr. H. V. Moulton, of Duke,
was here Saturday and was still
determined not to knuckle down
to King Cotton's truculence. He
dosen't take much to the tobacco
idea, but when it comes to trying
small grain he is out there with the
foremost. Already he has large
areas sowed to wheat and oats, and
is now preparing land for spring
grain. He is thinking of giving
peanuts a trial, also* and will
probably plant more corn than
ever before. He believes that
Harnett's farmers can get along
very well without cotton and is go
<ng to reduce cotton production to
a minimum upon his land this

TAKING A GOOD STAND.
Our representative, Stanley
Winborne Esq., is taking a good
stand in the legislature. Hiscom
taHtee appointments are good. He
is chairman of the committee on
Federal Relations and has been ap
pointed on the following other
committers: Judiciary, ranking
second, Courts and Judicial Dis
tricts, Election Laws, Journal,
Penal Institutions, Fish and
Fisheries and on a committee to
select trustees for the University
of North Carolina.

. Not a Failure.
And now two learned prbfessors
in leading universities solemnly
assert that the United States ia
until for self-government. One of
them in led to that conclusion be
cause lie bad invested his savings
New Haven stock and lost it in
the businessjugglery that marked
that road. That professor's views
are excusable under the circum
stances, for if anything can make
people lose faith in the political
and other stability of the country,
it is the way the New Haven and
several other lilies have been
fraudulently mismanaged, and the
leniency, and even favor that
courts, commissions and politicians
have shown them.
All the same the learned profes
sors are wrong. That representa
tive government is far from per
feet in this land few will deny,
and all will regret, but that does
not necessarily mean failure. As
a matter of fact, in spite of short
cotiiings, this country stands in
the front rank for the excellency
of its institutions and their opera
tion, and in the intelligent faith of
ivts people that all the problems
that may arise or that are existent ,
will be solved on just and righte
just as mere are folks that pre- (
diet all manner of things concern
ing the war, so there are folks
who see in it the fulfillment of
many Bible prophecies. Their
favorite books are Daniel and Re- 1
velation and passages which to 1
the average mortal are mysterious '
in the extreme are to them, in
iheir estimation, ad plain as day
light. They know, or think they
know, "all about the "Beak," ]
"Scarlet Woman," and other my
sterious characters, and the "little
honrt" "ten horns," "seventy |
weeks" and other dark passages of ;
Daniel, and the dragons, horses
and stars of Revelation present no j
difficulties whatsoever, for this
war is to reveal it all. No doubt (
such speculations are very inter ,
eating to those that delight in them
but most students of the Bible and
people generally reverentially re
frain from such curiosity while
tbey give themselves to the fur
therance of those practical ques- .
tions that are of positive value to
mankind and which so beautifully
marked the teaching and life of i
the Man of Nazareth. I

It is a curious fact that The I
Hague conferences and the com- i
pletion of the Peace Palace at The
Hague were followed by war. |
This was something neither anti
cipated nor desired by the monar- i
ch who -first suggested the holding i
of such conferences, nor by any
one else *
The first conference met in 1899
and was immediately followed by
the Boar war. The next was held
in 1907 and very soon after began
the disturbances in the Near Bast,
followed by the great war between
the Balkan States and Turkey. A
few months ago the Peace Palace
was completed, after years of
building and then came tbe great
est war in all the history.
The immediate out come of all
the conferences heralded by such
a flouish of trumpets is both dis
appointing and disconcerning to
all who pinned faith on the ability
of peace conferences to prevent
Still, that does not necessarily
mean that the meetings were val
ueless or that tbe Peace Palace is
a mockery. Influences, making
for the promotion of peace and for 1
better understanding between the ;
nations, have doubtless been set
in motion by the conference held
even if they have not yet risen to
the surface, and it is not unlikely
that when the powers get wearied
of fighting the peace negotiations
may be held in the beautiful a"nd
historic Dutch city. /

The swelling of the attendance
was due to the efforts of Dr. C.
