THE WORK Of TIIE HOME THE
There ia an impression preval
ent,, especially in tbe South, that
young women may grow up with
out any knowledge of cooking,
cleaning, buying, tbe care and
feeding of the child in the borne,
and, .vet when the proper time
comes, by some sort of inspiration,
these young women become good
bome-makers and house-keepers.
This is true to a limited extent.
An energetic, business-like young
woman who sets about housekeep
ing intelligently, may. after much
worry, waste of time, money and
energy, become a good housekeep
er?even as good as her mother
and grandmother. Have we not a
right to expect more of tbe home
makers of this generation than
was possible for our mothers and
grandmothers! With tbe light
that sieuce is throwing around tbe
home, and in the home, have we
not a right to expect stronger man
boon and womanhood in tbe com
Nearly all professions are open
1 to women, but engage in any one
of tliem a woman muat take the
training neceeeary for that pro
fession. What profession can
compare in honor and in responsi
bility to that of home-making and
motherhood? Is not the feeding
and growth of a child's body of
fundamental importance? la not
the responsibility of the moral an/i
religious training of the child of
the borne enough to make the
most careless home-maker stop
and marvel at the task she has
undertaken? The men of this
country are studying the scientific
feeding of their cattle in order
that tbey may make the most out
of it. la not the feeding of the
child of the home of vastly more
importance than the feeding of the
pig? And yet we prepare for all
other professions and leave the
highest of all God given privileges
to haphazard bit-and miss methods.
.The home is the unit of^society
and as much it relates to all human
activities; however, it relates prT
marily to the life?physical, men
tal, and moral life?and happiness
of the family.
If young women are taught how
to plan meals for the growth of
bone, cell and blood, for the re
pair of wests tissue, for the
elimination of waste, and bow to
pre par the same from a hygienic,
economic standpoint, is it not rea
sonable to believe that such train
ing- will produce better manage
ment in the borne, less friction as
result, and stronger manhood and
Oar Bodies Are Made ap of Cells.
1. The Proteins?eggs, milk,
lean meat, fish, cheese, peas,
beans, lentils, and some nuts
furnish the material out of which
these cells are built. #
3. The ash or mineral matter
found in green vegetables, fruits,
and salads furnish the cell-salts,
which, when united with the pro
teins, make the chemical changes
that must be made to keep an even
balance or health in the body. If
the body is burned the ashes that
are left contain these inorganic
cell-salts-riron, magnesia, potash,
lime and silica. . .
TWO POST OFFICES ROBBED.
Fur the second time within s
week yeggmen did work in the
Vicinity of Charlotte. Saturday
morning early they entered the
postoffice at Mount Holly, taking
between $1,100 and $1,S00 in
money and stamps. No explosion
was heard as'a pick and crowbar
was used. Only a few nights be
fore an attempt was made to loot
the postoffice at Matthews. No
arrests hare yet been made.?The

Parol Evidence to Conplcto Written
Brown ?. Mitchell is |tn motion
begun before a justic* of the
peace to recover mole, worth $20.
The plaintiff testified that he sold
the mule vto defendant and took
from bim a paper writing as fol
lows: "I, Wright Mitchell, pro
mise to pay W. A. Brown, the
sum of twenty dollars for one bay
mule, if said mule should get well
and able to work any time in the
limited time of twelve moatbs. If
said mule does not get well and
able to work in this limited time,
aboved mentioned, I am not to
uay W. A. Brown anything." The
trial judge refused to allow intro
duction of evidence that a half
hour after the above agreement
was delivered, it was agreed that
the title to the mule should remain
in Brown until payment made. On
the grown tl/at it assailed the wcit
en contract and further there was
no consideration. '
Justice Allen states: "In the
first place, if the agreement bad
been made contemporaneously with
the writing, it would fall within
the principal that where a part of
the contract is in writing and a
part not, that the part in parol
may bwproven because there is no
inconsistency between a promise
to pay and an agreement to secure
payment, and if made subsequent
to the writing, which appears to
be the case here, the rule exclud
ing parol evidence would have no
As to the second point. Justice
Allen states that we are also of
opinion that the pre-existing debt
is a sufficient consideration to sup
port the agreement. There was
error in excluding this evidence.

Road Methods Changed.
Buncombe Will Not Work Highways
in the Mud.
Asheville. N. C., March 7.?
Radical changes in the methods of
maintaining the dirt roads of
Buncombe county provided for in
regulations adopted by the county
commissioners yesterday with the
election of the road supervisors
who will serve during the ap
proaching year. The new regula
tions provide that only during
four months of the year shall
o|>erations be maintained on the
dirt roads; operations during any
other mouths must be carried on
only under the orders of the chair
man of the board. The rules were
adopted with a view to elimination
operations during months when
the roads are muddy and when
road work is of no value.
The commissioners intend to
make the roads of Buncombe
among the best in the South and
their recent rule was adopted in
line with the recommendations of
road experts throughout the coun
try who declare that work on dirt
roads when tbey are muddy harms
them more than it aids them Ex.

last week. The Doctor is well and
favorably known in this section
and has made special preparation
for his work. Doctor Saunders is
a son of Mr. and Mrs. Abe Saun

Paul J. Dunning Dead.
Paul J. Dunning died at his home
near here Monday about noon
after a short attack of pneumonia.
He grew worse on Saturday and a
trained nurse was sent for, but his
condition rapidly .became grave
and no hope was entertained for
bis recovery after Sunday. Mr.
Dunning leaves a widow and several
children. For years he had super
intended the farm of Mr. W. J.
Dunning and was a most industri
ous and energetic worker. Ar
rangements are being ma<Je for the
funeral and interment as this is
written. Paul will be missed about
the plantation and around town
where he had many friends. He
was about 50 years old, though he
seemed younger and always had a
good word and a cheerful smile
for everybody. _
It is extremely unfortunate that
the people living in the Hertford
County portion of the school die
trict have had t^tt part of the dis
trict elimated, not from the stand
point of the finaiK ial aid to the
district as a whole, but from the
important standpoint of the vital
needs of that particular section.
The town and vicinity of Aulader
is so closelv connected with that
portion of our neighboring county
that their interests are practically
one, and In t^epar??? for this
school Aulandcr wpuld have done
tbem a grave injustice if they had j
not been taken Into consideration.
? ? " '? ' f , ' ? ? ?
The vote to include litem *u 140
to 00, this vole showing ilia proper
?pirit in lite mailer. Since that
time a few citizens in tliat section
have prevailed upon the voters to
sign a petition asking the Legis
lature to eliminate them, and with
the help of a few in town who
were disappointed in the site select
ed, they succeeded in presenting it.
Ou the face of the petition, the
Legislature could hardly do other
wise; it was signed by the people
of that section themselves, and the
Legislature necessarily was not
concerned as to how the names
were secured. As a matter of
fact this movement was led by one
' or two citizens who own property
in that section and who have not
children to educate. From a selfish
point of vieir these men are right?
they simply object to paying out
money to educate other people's
children, but to make it appear
that these people were being im
posed upon and unjustly burdened
was carrying the matter rather too
far. Those people were simply
hoodwinked and duped, and in
order to save a few dollars to one
or two men, they signed a petition
denying their own children the
rigbt.pf practically a free educa
tion. This very fact proves their
extreme need of the very thing
they opposed. In their ignorance
tbey have been played upon and
their right* taken away from them
while being persuaded that tbey
were getting their rights. From a
financial, point of view the with
drawal scarcely affects the school.
The amount of taxes to be derived
from that section was relatively
small, only about 7 ner cent, and,
over half of this would have been
paid by our townsmen, Hon. C.
W. Mitchell who ownd~tlie gerater
portion of the land in that terri
tory. From statistics it appears
that there are 86 children in that
section, 41 ?# whom cannot read
end write. 58 per cent of these
are 18 years of age and older.
Probably half of tbe farthers and
mothers are as educationally de
ficient, if not more. Under this
act these children would have re
ceived $84.72 per year per head
while paying only $6.08, in other
words that would receive $18 04
per head more than they naid in.
The school as planned will be nearer
to them than the public schools
they are supposed to attend, and
three wagons have already been
bringing tbem to school in this
town. We repeat that it was an
unfortunate move for the people
of that section. Doubtless they
will never have another such op
opportunity. All honor to Mr.
Mitchell. Here is a type of men
directly opposed to the type who
stir up strife and dissatisfaction.
Without a child to educate, own
ing about three fourths of the
taxable values in that section,
voluntarily voted to tax himself
to help othelr people's children.
Sueh a citizen deserves honor. It
is such men as this who keep the
wheels of progress moving, who is
big enough to make some personal
sacrifice for the good of the whole
people. Narrow minded men, sel
fish men have ever kept the masses
in ignorance and in want and have
used them for the furtherance of
their own selfish ends. The pity of
it is that the people cannot or will
not see and are constantly being
deceived by self seeking individu
als. It is greatly to bo regretted
for tbe sakes of those most direct
ly to be benefitted that such a step
was accomplished. As it is, one
or two man will be in pocket a
few dollars, several others have
realized a pet grudge, and a big
majority of needy children will go
on without the advantages of their
neighbors children, helpless in the
present and doubtless as much so
in the future by reason of being
kept in ignorance, which means
poverty and possibly slavery. The
people of Aulander however may
feel that they h?ve tried to help
their neighbors, and there is no
reason for Aulander to blush for
conditions in other counties, how
ever near they may be. Those
who ars resoonsibie for the effort
to help them certainly deserve
commendation however futiel their
efforts may have been.
