The Entertainment for the
Prince Will be Thorough
ly national.
Washington. Jan 20. - The com
mitter charged with the arrange
ments for the reception and
entertainment of Prince -Henry to
day decided that it would be
impossible to yield to the requests
of many citizens to have jthe Prince
visit them.-" It is likely that beside
New York, Washington and
Niagara Falls, the journey will
include Chicago -only, of the large
cities. It was also decided, owing
the tide to have the launching occur
on the original date, February 25.
This will necessitate two trips on
the part of jthe Prince between
New York and Washington, 7 1 The
Prince v will come to ''Washing
ton from New York, arriving
here on the morning of 24th. ' He
-will be met at the station by a
handsome millitary escort and
conveyed to the German embassy.
ne wiu nexviait me xresiaent
at the White House and the Pres
ident will return ; his i call at the
German - embassy. Some - j time
Monday evening the presidential
party nd1 the jlPrince will leave
L Washington for ? $$er .York and
thev will see .the launching at 10:30
o'clock 'Tuesdav mornin&r. This
plan involves a return to Wash
ington of the entire party and it is
likely that on1 the 26th the Prince
will be entertained at dinner at
the White House. Onthe 27th Jie
is to ' be one oi v tne company
present at ther capitol when Sec
retary Hay delivers the McKinley
memorial address to Congress.
After a few: social 'exchanges, the
Prince, in; charge of the , reception
committee, will start on ; a short
tour, winding up at New "York in
time to sail on the Columbia, on
if .. . .....
March 8, for iSermany.
It is part of the plan to have
the entertainment afforded the
Prince thoroughly national in cha
racter, and that - the. participants
shall not be limited to any one
rain of blood or race. One
means of attaining this result will
be to make the reception 'as for
mal as possible so that it 7 will be
drawn upon official lines, and there
will be a. considerable appearance
of the military element where fea
sible. -
Kothmg Except the Mint Can Make
;4 r .Money Without it : i
Many advertisers are driven ou
of the field because aelf constituted
authoriiies have led them 'toexpec
too much. The amount of rubbish
which a- glib solicitor 7 can some
times i induce: a business man to
believe is imply amazing, He is
assured in; the most solemn and
emphatic- manner that a certain
mvestmeub in certain . iacmumo
will infallibly bring him -profitl
Advertising is representedaaif i
wereifbundedf on' i . principles as
immutable as" those of geometry.
The victiiiNyiefds to the tempter
andvnnda-after, baa .af nt his
money, that advertising is about as
intricate and ' uncertain as other
branches of business! Vexed and
disappointed, he. .puts advertising
down as a fraud and men connected
with it as ignoramuses or swindlers.
This conclnsion :js unfair, but it
is human. ; There is a world of
truth in the dictum, attributed to
Gladstone, that nothing except th!e
mint can make money without
abvertising. About the value of it
in general there is no more doubt
than about the rising of the sun. v
But the result of an untried plan
can no more be predictd than the
amount of cloud in the sky when
the sun rises tomorow. National

A Few Lies.
Saturday afternoon about two
o'clock? as the vast -; throngs, i of, ,
shoppers were picking their way
between the oysters 'shells oii the
corner of Water and Main streets, a
horse named passed at a rapid
pace ? He was hitched onto, one,of
those 'chic' little 'runaboutswhich
are-commonly used by the country
people. "--When
in5 front of the
Tab Heel office he - stopped 7 to
wait for a friend ' who naa- gone
into a store.. 9ome one .looking
on and noticing the tired7 ekpres-'
sion on the horse's physiognomy,
shouted to himv to, go away 'back
and ait down. . The animal was
pleased to do this, and after com
fortably seating himself he. oast a
grateful look at the one who naa
proffered . the! ; suggestion, and
wiped a tear from his eye (he only
had one). :.a Later on be passed in

Opinion that the people of Camden
were the only, ones .. that talked
"lynching,? when James Wilcox
was held in custody, awaiting the
report of the coroner's jury, in the
Cropsey case; but if certain parties
will not deny the locality of their
habitant (and-we think they will
not); and if our auditory percep

occasion, we are safe w in saying
that no resident of Camden utter

who reside in tne same . county. in

petrated. , . We, 7 wish "to remind

It is true that Camden is guilty of

was guilty, is committed : within
our borders, there .will be, in" less

An Interesting Character.
- We were paid a visit on Tuesday
afternoon by Mr. T. W. Pritchard,
of about two ' miles west of the
city.7 Mr. . Pritchard is a man
about fifty-three years old and has
been totally blind -since childhood.
He is very well 7 educated . for a
countryman and one totally blind.
Mr. Pritchard'a jaense of 7 toueh
has been developed to 'a suprising
degree. He makes baskets, tubs
ahd chairs in addition to the farm
work, in order to earn a livelihood.
His chairs are all mfde from the
best hickory, twhjch' he, himself,
selects from the '.Woods and cuts.
The chairs turned out7by him are
very good and durable, - the seats
being made of twisted and woven
shucks. ,j H i'-- 1 -
Mr. Prichard often comes to this
city alone and can find his way un
assisted to anyistore to" which he
wishes to go. "v ' ' ' v ' r -
Mr. Pritchard is much interested.
in the Tab Heel's :' success, and is
an intent -listener while members
of his family read' therefrom.
A sunny and happy tempera
ment can make up for ; a good deal
which is lacking in the 1 physical
being. .
