Mr. VadderfordV candidacy is
now quite encouraging- The re

him. -- " - "
It is a strange thing that good
citizens will vote for and support
men for municipal office, that
they would not think of trusting
to handle their private . business.
There ought to be no trouble
in finding suitable men in Salis
bury for aldermanic timber. We
have plenty of them in each ward
and we should make it a point to
select the best.
If the Democracy would 4hrow
some of the httlepolitical j)iosti-tuteSjit-iarnow
overboard, its voting strength
would be materially increased
thereby. But is this gag rule to
continue till only th dictators
It is with great pleasure we note
the appointment of Hayd e n
Clement, Esq., of this city, to the
position of Assistant Attorney
General, a position created by the
last legislature. Mr. Clement is
a young man of many excellent
qualifications and will no doubt
fill the position in a V6ry credita
The man who refuses to abide
by the action of a party that steals
his franchise; or allows it to be
stolen, in Its primary, and gives.
it to another, is more honorable
and trustworthy than the little
political prostitute who wears a
boss' collar that comes up ' so far
above his ears that he cannot tell
the difference between day c and
A noted English lawyer once
remarked that he would under
take to drive a coach and four
through any act of parliament
One might almost do the same
with theecorder bill. It is de
cidedly ambiguous in places, is
loosely worded, is susceptible of a
variety of constructions, and with
al, such a bill as a good lawyei
would have no difficulty in tear
ing all to pieces
It is a peculiar thing to see how
some people will vote for a can
did ate- because a little curbing or
a few shovels full of cinders, or
sand, has been thrown on a pave
ment near his residence. Why
not elect a man who will dp these
things because it is his duty to do
so, not because he believes he is
buying your votes with the city's
-money. Citizens and taxpayers
should be above such traffic.
They, should demand proper at
tention to their streets and side
walks and remain free to vote as
their consciences dictate.
It has been circulated that the
friends of prohibition in Salis
bury jure making preparations for
the purpose of holding an election
in Salisbury at some early date.
Wdo not doubt that these good
peopje would gladly take: advant
age of any favorable ; opportunity
that might present -itself. But
after careful inquiry nothing can
be learned of such a movement,
in fact the report seems to have
been circulated -for reasons just
the reverse, in other-words: to
f ighteh the bar men into' a more
determined fight against Mr. Van
derford and thus possibly aid in
tBoyden 's re-election. That is all
there is in the ; story, ; m erely C a
cheap piece ; of campaign bun

tmpt to explain the provisions of
ihe bill to the voters of thecity,
i t is just as wel 1 to state facts and
not draw on our imagination.
As the Salisbury and Rowan
v " -
Democracy is now constituted it
can .elect' any candidate it may
see fit to nominate It can elect
a negro with" convict stripes on
him as easily as our most reputa
ble citizen, that is, if the party
stands together, as it has, and
voesfbr the nominee merely be
cause he is labeled "Democrat,"
J'his is a. very dangerous position
for a party controlled by "corrup
tion is ts to get into. This is why
some exceedingly unworthy men
were elected last fall, and, it will
be the responsible factor if these
fellows are ever re-elected: The
present efforts of those who are
now daring - to make rules by
which freemen must abide in or
der to .vote in thr coming mnnici
pal primary, is by no means cred
itable to anything that has a
semblance of Democracy about it.
It is a dastatdly effort to kickout
some of the best men in the party,
merely to assist the present mayor
to break the third term rule and
to tie the hands and better judg
ment of the voters two years
hence. In short they hope to
break this rule to re-elect Boydea
and :make, tb e vo teirs ; obligate
themselves to stand by thii same
rule two years hence and re-elect
the present county officials. Are
freemen going to allow themselves
to be handled thus? Who are
these men and ot wnat authority
have they to say "how you shall
vote now or at jome future date?
Such usurpation of authority and
dictatorial methods may be used to
tide over matters in a case of
emergency, they may succeed,
they may even flourish for a time,
but so sure as death there will,
sooner or later, be an end of it.
As for us, we believe in the jus
tice and righteousness of our peo
ple and are content -to leave it
with them. -

Dr. Dennis, Wef! Known Specialist, Ei
plains DiscoTerv In Off icial Report.
In a paper read before the National Medical
Society in Chicago. Dr D D Dennis explained
his experiments which lead up to the dis
covery of the eczema germ
This discovery has settled the long disputed
questions that skin diseases are rue not to
conditions of the blood but -to disease nf tha
shin Itself Dr -Dennis explained tbatr cures-
couia-De esectea ouiy by ctr lng the sfcin-
xnrougn tne 8Km une majority of skin suf
ferers, he said, Vere entirely healthy in all
repec s showing no pathological symptoms
By applying certain harmless vegetable In
gredlents direct to the injured skin the doc
tor explained how the diseased condition
could be relieved instantly, taking away the
terrible itch and leading to an early cure
The reading of the paper was followed by a
general discussion in which a number of
Chicago's most eminent physicians partici
pated In reply to several questions, Dr Den
nis defended his course in having permitted
the D D D Co, of Chicago, to out out his pre
scription in original bottles to be snM at i
bottle, instead of stating his formu a only t&
uruwicr puyaiciaiis who couia tnen prescribe
the remedy Dr Dennis said there were thous
ands of sufferers from skin diseases who
could not or would not pay the regular fees
for being under tke care of a physician,- so
that the same results could be accomplished
by gelling 'D D D Prescriptions" In original
boitles throughdrugprista He declared thai,
he did not onsider his remedy a patent med
icin vi l the ordinary sense of the word, which
was evidenced by the fact that while so-r e
br- ther physicians had apparently grown
jealous f him, inters wfie freely directing
their patients to use D D D -Prescription for
eczema and similar diseases

shape. The skirts of her gowns never,
have - a stringy look because thdy 'are
always hooked and then hung by two"
loops. For a tailors made" szirt she uses
a small coat hanger with the ends bent
down a little. This keeps -the skirt-in
excellent shape and' causes It ta -hang
in even' folds. The strings, of her un
derskirts are. tied and the garment Is
hungry the Joops, thus never showing
a hump where It has rested on the

Handsome waists have both sleeves

It is well to roll each veil on a stiff

However, -it is safe to say that no hat

How to Wash an Automobile.
When the owner of an automobile
has' engaged a new driver he should
stand by to watch the method adopted
when the new broom washes the car
for the first time, says the Pittsburg
Press. If a hose is provided1 and the
new man forthwith plunges a sponge
into water and commences to wipe the
mud and dust off the paint work it is'
clear that he does not know, his job
and should be stopped at once. Mud
and dust should never be wiped off,
even with a wet-sponge, but should be
washed away wlthwater just running
from the hose pipe without force. .It
should be sluiced away, and' that can
not be done properly If the water ts
pouring forcibly through the . nozzle!
Where mud. has caked upon the car
water must be allowed to run gently
over the incrustations until they break
up "and are washed away. Then a
clean sponge and clean water must be
used for finally washing the paint work
when all the mud and grit have disap
peared. The final drying and polishing
can be done with perfectly clean, grit
less chamois learners. Cars should be
washed Immediately upou coming into
the garage. Wherever dried mud rests
for any time a dull stain remains which
nothing will remove.
How to Care For a Watch.
If a watch Is expected to go well
and to keep good time7"tbe first and
chief demand Jt makes is that it should
have regular attention, says the Pitts
burg Press. As far as possible it should
be wound up every day about the same
hour, and If it IS worn let it be worn
regularly, not taken out for three days
and then returned to Its case for the re
mainder of the weekT Extremes of
temperature should also be avoided,
as sudden cold or heat works havoc
with a valuable watch and Its delicate
mechanism. Another point to be noted
Is that the watch should be kept In the
same position. If it is carried by day
In an upright position, hang it on a
hook "at night, preferably against some
How to Remove Grease Prom Carpet.
Grease may be removed from a car
pet by spreading over the spot a thick,
paste of potter's clay. Tack down
tightly over this some thick brown
paper, and at the end of a week re
move this paper and brush oil the clay.
It may be necessary in some cases to
repeat this process, but one applica
tion is usually sufliclent. If the grease
has penetrated the floor it may be
necessary to raise the carpet and put
the clay on the floor in the same man
