The Proposed Lease.
The whole press of the State is loud
in opposition to a renewal of the exist
ing lease of the N.C. Railroad, which,
by the way, doesnot expire an til 1111.
The propositions two previous, and is
exceedingly cheek v. The lease will
hardly be renewed now; The "fore
sight ef railroad people is wry good
they can tell a good thing fourteen
years off, but the Governor and those
associated with him will hardly take
time so carelessly by the uf ore-lock1
and .settle a matter for the people of
the State half a generation ahead.
There is no need for a renewal now and
there may never he a need in future.
The State' may be able to run the road
itself by the time the lease expires.
Yes, Rowan is to have another elec
tion, bat it is to be a quiet, orderly
affair, which will stir up no spleen,
strife, or bitterness. The question to
be voted upon is not a political one in
any sense, but of a purely business na
ture. It is to determine whether or
not the people of Rowan care to im
prove their present condition, by en
hancing the value of all real estate,
and by offering their products through
a wider range to the world. It is the
question of increasing our railroad
facilities. Does Rowan need more rail
roads? Certainly. We can set in and
out now, and we can get freight in
and out, why then build more roads?
imefly this, to make competition in
freight and thus reduce the rate to a
minimum. Listen ! Here is the truth :
The farmer may save on his domestic
supplies alone, enough in a year to
more than pay the additional tax which
would be levied in Case the road is built.
Improve tlie value of your real estate
and lessen all domestic expenses, and
you are on the royal road to fortune.
Don t listen to narrow minded
people who are willing to get along so
so, or to men who are interested in
other roads in the country they are
naturally -opposed to having the busi
ness done by these roads divided. Any
man would do the same thing, but the
people of Rowan must act for their
i . 1 1 T A i 1 1
j usi one more thought, it the roaci
is not built, the county will not have
to pay a cent the bonds will be void
The road must be built to Salisbury
from Smithville, on the Atlantic ocean
to Salisbury, before they can get a cent
or sell the bonds, and then they can
only get half. They must build to
South River before they get the rest.
So that the road must come first, then
the subscription. Do not allow this
opportunity to pass but vote for the
best interests of yourself and children.
Th State Weather Service.
SALISBURY SHOULD HAVE AN OBSERVER
AND SIGNAL FLAG.
' A brief sketch tHow to get reports.
From The Builetin we take tbe follow
Ing which explains the scheme and por
trays some of the advantages derived
iron the service ;
' The work divides itself into two parts;
the collection of information and, the
distribution of weather reports, cold-wave
1. The Hervice is receiving information
regularly now from the following poiuts
in or near North Carolina;

have been completed for special brancn

Messenger; Jenesboro, Mr. A- A. F. Sea
well, Jr., observer: Marion, Mr. W. J.
Craig, observer ; Oxford, Mr. A. J. Field,
observer. Arrangements are in progress
for similar branch stations at Henderson,
Louisburg, Edentou, Kmston, Monroe,
Carthage, Salem and Morganton.
Similar stations will be secured at other
points at an early day. It is desired to
nave forty or fifty in the State, or one to
about-every two counties, at least. The
central ofiice will also receive the cotton
belt reports and the cold-wave warnings.
2. In order to give these cold-wave
warnings the widest possible circulation,
in advance ot the organization ot tne
more complete system, arrangements
have been made with the Signal Office to
send them out from Washington direct to
seven-different points in the State, from
which they can be distributed. lhese
special warnings, which may come at any
moment in the day, will be sent only tj
those places where the flags are provided
and other steps are taken for publishing
the information promptlyand enectually.
These warnings alone, as they generally
mean that a destructive frost or freeze is
impending, are likely to be worth a thou
sandfold more to any community than
the slight expense (less than $30, all
counted) of securing a weather station.
Towns and communities desiring to
receive the benefits of this information
will please write to us at once, as the
system is to be organized immediately.
In addition to this, the arrangements
for the distribution throughout the State
of regular daily weather warnings are
being rapidly perfected.
yr j Good Advice.
Advice is both abundant and cheap.
The poorest of us have advice to spare,
and few of us are niggardly enough to
withhold it when an i opportunity offers
for administering it. Some people are
too free with advice and heap it on
when it is not wanted, but the Scotland
Neck Democrat, a true-blue, anti-civil
service democratic paper, is a little
lonesome in the "negro district" and
after making a hard fight for principle
has this to say to the people:
"Now that the election is over and we
are defeated, let every man go to sowing
oats, wheat, rye and grasses. Nothing
pays so well as a good oat crop, rye and
wheat. Make home supplies at 'home.
Make a plenty to eat and wear and no
Republican success can hurt much. Fill
the lot and stable with pine straw and
litter every two weeks, and the cow lot
as often. The manure raised from one
horse or ftow kpnt nn and fWI w wnrtli aa I
much as the food consumed. This in
cludes the litter put in the stable of course.
Dur people ought to cultivate less land,
make it better, cultivate it better, and
with half the expense. By doing this we
can dispense with at least half of the
labor now used. Every farmer ought to
make his meat, corn, hay and fertilizers
at home. When this is done, the country
wHl have started on the high road to
prosperity and happiness. Until we do
make our home supplies at home, we
shall continue to be poor."
James Long, of Cabarrus, newly
elected independent, announces his
determination to act with the demo
crats, and be guided by the democratic
How is This?
The Scotland Neck Democrat says:
"All men who have white skin, blue
eyes and straight hair, and who desire to
become a black negro, can be accommo
dated by applying to us at our office."
How does the editor of the Demo
crat propose to proceed? Will "he make
a black job by use of the ink keg the
old time "devil's photograph," or will
he color him up in some other way. If
he will advertise to perform a similar
metamorphosic wonder on the blacks of
his section, making them white, he
might have a large run of business.
The citizens at these places are urged to
provide a pole and signal flags with
which to publish this information more
effectually and extensively. This must
be done by the people at each place, how
ever, as we have no funds whatever to
expend for this service. The set of five
flags costs $8, made of standard bunting,
or &3.60 mode of cotton cloth. The
regular bunting flags are much to be
preferred for durability and handsome
appearance. These flags can be ordered
through the Raleigh office of the Weather
Service. Unless the proper provisions
arc made for the publication of all this
information m this manner to all the
people within reach of our telegraph
stations, we cannot guarantee the contin
uance of this service. This information
costs the people at each place nothing
but we can only undertake to help those
who help themselves
The following roads have signified their
willingness to co-operate with the JBtate
in this matter : 1 he Kaleigh and Uaston
Raleigh and Augusta, Carolina Central
Atlantic and North Carolina, Cape Fear
and Yadkin Valley, Richmond and Dan
ville and Western .North Carolina
Some of the-benefits of such a Weather
Servicdmay only be briefly touched upon
1. It will bring the benefits of the
weather " indications," storm warnings,
flood warnings, " Farmers' Bulletins,"
etc., to bear directly upon the interests
and daily lives of a great many more of
our people. If this system is carried out
as we desire it shall be, after a sufficient
time for organization and experience, it
should bring the knowledge of an expect
ed cold-wave, for example, twelve hours
in advance of the cold-wave to all the
people of the State who are within six
hours' time by the ordinary means of
communication, as by country mails, of
one pf our branch signal stations.
We desire to have such a signal station
at all telegraph stations six miles and
Over apart. This is what we shall strive
-to attain ; but it is evident that it will
take a considerable time and very general
assistance from the public at large, the
towns, the railroad and telegraph compa
nies, before this can be accomplished.
2. It will be the means of securing
much better knowledge of the meteorol
ogy of our State, which, for one thing,
will give us the uata lor making better
predictions of weather changes, etc
3. It will give the people of all parts of
the State reliable standards for tempera
ture, rain-fall, humidity, wind-velocity,
etc., which are sources of varied, useful
. 4. It will put within the reach of local
agricultural clubs and thoughtful indi
viduals the means of accurate observa
tions upon the relations of the weather to
our crops. Without a weather record in
figures, our conception of what the
weather was during any particular season
are sure to be very wild and unreliable.
-5. It will educate the people at large
on the subjects in science which have the
most important bearing upon their inter
ests, comforts andHives. Wherever possi
ble we desire to connect the local observ
ing stations with schools, so that their
teachers and pupils may be induced to
form habits of observing these natural
This is to be all purely voluntary labor,
The Chief Signal Officer at Washington
does all he can to help 11s, the towns or
communities raise a small amount of
money sufficient to purchase the neces
sary instruments and signal flags, the
railroads forward the daily weather warn
ings, and the observers keep the records
and report monthly all for the general
public good and without charge.
The central office of this service will be
at the Experiment Station in Raleigh.
The preliminary arrangements for ob
serving stations and Sag stations are
being made as rapidly as possible. We
are now prepared to organize the
stations along the line of the Raleigh and
Augusta and Kaleigh and Gaston system
We expect to make the
ing to yon for assistance in establishing a

connection with our State Weather Serv-
liee, at your place. For the workings and

refer to the accompanying paper. If we
are to give your community the imme
diate benefits of this system mere are
two duties which will have to be per
formed bv them :
1st. We will want a reliable and ac
curate, educated man or woman who will
take charge of the instruments ther
mometers and rain gauge keep a care
ful record of their readings and report
the same to us once a mouth. It must be
a person who goes at it to stick and will
be regular in it. This person is called the
Voluntary Weather Observer.
2nd. The railroad or telegraph agent,
or person with them, is to be designated
to receive the daily 8.30 a m. weather
indications and warnings, and to put up
tbe signal flags. This is the Display man.
If convenient, the Observer may do this
This is purely volunteer enterprise, and
we have no funds to expend for it. We
will supply instructions, blank forms for
the records and franked envelopes to
mail reports to us, and we will secure the
instruments and flags for you at cost.
But we will only be able to extend the
benefits of this system to your community
in case you can get the services of the
above persons, and can raise the sum of
twenty-five dollars to be expended for
instruments and flags to be used and
kept atyour place. Sometimes the ob
servers prefer to owa their own instru
ments, costing about $17.00. Often the
money necessary is provided by town or
raised by private subscription. In some
cases the money is raised at a public
meeting called for the purpose.
If vou can provide these things, we are
prepared to telegraph you, free of cost, the
daily weather indications, including the
Farmers' .Bulletins,' Irost ana storm
We urge vou to call attention to this
matter and let us hear promptly what
you can do.

Death of a Bright Little Girl.
The heart of our entire community
went out in sympathy, last Sunday morn
ing to Mr. and Mrs. Quinn, oter the an
nouncement of the death of their only
child, Margarie, a bright little girl about
18 months of age. Little Margarie was
taken sick about two weeks ago, and her
illness soon assumed a serious form, and
despite all that loving, affectionate care
could do, she continued to grow worse,
until Sunday morning, when she passed
quietly into the sleep that no pain shall
wake. The funeral services were held
yesterday morning, at 11 o'clock, from
Mr. Phifer's residence, Rev. J. Y. Fair,
pastor of the Second Presbyterian church
officiating. A touching incident of the
service was the singing, by two little
eirls. Misses McDonald and Duls, of
'There is .1 reaper, whose name is death
Ami, with his sickle keen,
He reaps the bearded grain at a breath
And the ficwers that grow between.''
The services were attended by a large
number of sympathetic friends, and at
their conclusion, the little casket was
escorted to peaceful Elm wood and con
signed to the grave. Char. Observer.
