LAWRENCE S. HOLT, JR., GIVES
SIO,OOO TO UNIVERSITY.
Fund to Help Needy Students to
Secure College Education.
£or. of The Glfeaner. .
Chapel Hill, N. C., Oct. 28.-r
President H. W. Chase announced
today that the University of North
Carolina has received from Law
rence S. Holt, Jr., of Burlington,
a gift of SIO,OOO to be used in
helping provide a college educa
tion for students who would not
otherwise have the money to go to
the university. The principal of
the SIO,OOO will be established as
a loan fund for worthy and needy
students, and the income from the
loans will be used for four scholar
ships which will be awarded an
nually to that member, man or
woman, of each of the frehsman,
sophmore, junior, and senior class
es who shall be judged the most
needy, deserving, and worthy.
"It is my wish," said Mr. Holt,
in making the gift to President
Chase, "that no person shall re
ceive one of these scholarships
who would otherwise be able to
attend the Univerity of North
The administration of-the fund
will be in the hands of the presi
dent, Business Manager, Charles
T. Woollen, aud Dean M. C. S.
Noble, of the school of education.'
President Chase pointed ont to
day the- double effectiveness of
the gift which establishes a loan
fund and provides schalorship at
the same time. It is a generously
conceived and finely planned
gift," he said, "and, so far as I
know, is nnique in the multiplied
results it will achieve."
Mr. Holt Is a graduate of the
uuivarsity of the class of 1904
and has been in close contact
with the university for many
years. He has been prominently
connected with cotton manufac
turing interests in Alamance
county and now lives at Burling

What You Wish to Know About
Hairy Vetch. **
The Progressive Farmer.
Hairy vetch is by far the most
vigorous grower of the more than
100 varieties of vetch kuown, and
will htand cold and other adverse
conditions better than probably
any other variety. It is often
known as "winter vetch" or '.'sand
vetch". It belongs to the pea
family and has the same inoculat
ing bacteria as the Canada field
pea, the English pea, or the sweet
pea. (It does not have the same
bacteria as the cowpea, however.)

garden where English or sweet
peas have been grown for years.
Four or five hundred pounds of
this soil per acre will give fair in
oculation if sowed broadcast and
covered immediately. -
Hsiry vetch, if sowed for hay,
should be sowed at the rate of
about 20 to 30 pounds of seed per
acre with two to two and one-half
bushels of oats. This mixture
often makes, on goOcT soil, two to
three tons of hay per acre, which
is of fine quality and readily
eaten by all livestock. Instead
'of oats alone a mixture of one and
a half to two bushels of oats and
one-half bushel of wheat may be
sowed with the vetch. The wheat,
being stiller, helps to hold the
vetch erect, thus making the cut
When sowed to be turned under
for the improvement of the soil,
30 to 40 pounds of seed, or even
more, should be sowed to the acre.
Even for turning, grain should be
sowed with )he vetch for the first
•few years, or until the soil be

THE CRACK O'DOOM
FOR NASTY CALOMEL
Folks Abandoning Old Drag for "Dod
son's Liver Tone," Here
Ugh! Calomel makes you sick.
It's norrible! Take a dose of the
dangerous drug tonight and tomor
row you lose a day.
Calomel is mercury! When it
comes into contact with sour bile, it
crashes into it, breaking it up. Then
is when you feel that awful nausea
and cramping. If you are s'uggish,
if liver is torpid and bowels consti
pated or you have headache, dizzi
ness, coated tongue, if breath is bad
or stomach sour, just try a spoonful
of harmless Dodson's Liver Tune
Here's my guarantee —Go to any
drug store anl get a bottle of Dod
son's Liver Tone for a few cents.
Take a spoonful and if it doesn't
straighten you right up and make
you feel fine and vigorous, go back
to the store and get your money.
Dodson's Liver Tone is destroying
the sale of calomel because it can not
salivate or make sick.
A dealer says "umbrellas are
coming back". None of those
that we over loaned out, however.

WHO FIRST TOOK THE STUMP?
Sxpreeelon Certainly Is Ancient, but
It la Hard to Tall Wh.ro it
Who first used the expression to
"take the stump," the Nomad can
not say, and would like to know.
Horace Greeley employed it, saying
that the "stump is the conservation
of American liberties," some
thing like that; but it was in cur
rent use, if the Nomad is not mis
taken, before Greeley was born, or
at least before he ever began to
write editorials, The dictionary in
forms us that the use of the phrase
was once peculiar to the United
States, but that it is now commonly
used in England. Naturally it does
not mean #o much in England as it
does in this country; it would have
meant as much in the time of Wil
liam the Conqueror, but nobody
"took* the stump" then. That other
phrase, to "stump" anyone to do a
thing; in the sense of a challenge,
is also American, and has a kindred
origin. It suggests the practice of
country boys when they wish to pro
claim their prowess, of mounting
the nearest stump and loudly defy
ing all in hearing to do the thing
that they can do. Both terms su£>
gest the prominence of the* stumps
of trees in the primitive American
life. These stumps are often a
desolate feature in the landscape, in
new regions. But it would be a sad
bereavement if there were no longer
any stumps in the land I—Boston
