Some alleged statesmen die before
they are buried and given the offices of
holy church." We see the proof of
this assertion in every-day events and
in the occurrences which add interest
to both National and State politics.
The fact is that there are a great many
men who have outgrown ana outlived
their usefulness, whose mission vand
mandate have been exhausted, and
who now ''lag superfluous on the
If we appealed to the oracles of cyn
icism in order to sustain this assertion,
it would be easy enough to get all
the deliverances that were desired to
substantiate the proposition. Howev
er, we are not dealing with cynics just
now. We are simply after facts. We
think it could be abundantly demon
strated that, on this basis of fact, there
are mariy men, not only in the Union,
but also in North Carolina, who, meta
phorically spesiking, have been dead for
many years, and should have been
buried long before this. Take for in

party, both in North Carolina and in
the country at large, but more espe

Beach Palace Exposition on Coney

a mile a minute. Upon this immense
machine, the skilled operator in my

that the four were placed on the end of

the huge saw as cleverly and as easily

Wetting his thumb, he pressed the ball

sawdust off the thumb without scratch

twitch of the arm would have cost him
a hand. All sorts of curious puzzles
