Salisbury, N. C, Mae. 16, 1909:
Five blind tigers in one day,
was very good business for the
Durham officers last week. Are
any of the animals in Salisbury?
Surely the late Hinton Rowan
Hemer. over 80 vears of aee, was
at least . temporarily unbalanoed,
for if he had been in" his right
mind and would have taken a sec
ond thought, he could have saved
himself the trouble cojnmitting
suicide. By putting it off a few
days he might have died from old
Johnny Rockefeller and the
Standard Oil Company have es
caped the payment of the just fine of
$29,00,000.00 by merely taking an
appeal and having their case heard
by a judge favorable v to them.
And so it goes, if you have got the
money you can do as you please,
law or no law. Thus the Ameri
can Republic is going to the bow
wows . The plain people will re
volt sooner or later then, the likes
of Johnny D.t will be glad to give
all they have for their lives.
Different towns and cities
through the State are now, or soon
will be, making efforts to secure
the location of the Jr. O. U. A.
M, orphanage practically decided
upon at the last State Council
meeting of the Order. The oppor
tunity for Salisbury to secure this
orphanage is equal to that of any
other community and the obliga
tion to do so is just as great. Such
opportunities and obligations have
presented themselves to Salisbury
on a number of occasions in the
past, and have as often been waved
aside. Now isn't it possible, with
the revival of the spirit of pro
gress and improvement, for the
city to make a real honest effort to
secure this addition to its institu
tions? Almost every city of any
size, now-a-days, has on orphan
aee. This institutition would be
undenominational and all creeds,
parties and fraternal societies
could unite to secure and main
tain it in our midst. Will we do
it,, or shall it pass like similar
opportunities have in the past?
It is certainly tiresome to hear
so much about why the solid
South should be broken, especial
ly when we look around and note
the great and increasing prosperi
ty of thfe section under Democrat
ic lule, her freedom from panics,
public graft and labor agitations,
in fact there ie every reason why
the South should remain both sol
id and Democratic. We consider
it an insult for the president to
offer us a few little public offices
for a'change of politics. Why is
he not solicitous about the New
England states that have been
voting the Republican ticket sol
idly ever since beforf the war?
Why is it more detrimental to the
South, in the face of her great in
dustrial achievements, under
Democratic rule, to vote the Dem
ocratic ticket solidly, than it is
for our northern brothers to vote
solidly the Republican ticket in
"the face of that section's panics,
strikes, grafting and
depression? The South has cause
for rejoicing in that she has es
caped much that is depressing to
business and degrading in her po
litical and social life, and being as
it is the only section where the
Democracy has had anythiug like
a half show although almost con
tinually handicapped by the na
tional government in the hands
of the Republican party. Let the
South demand that the North
first show good faith in the mat
ter of ' breaking away from her
ideals and then she will still do
as she pleases in the matter. The
following states have voted the
Republican ticket solidly in presi
dential elections since the war :
Illinois, except in 1892; Iowa.
Maine, Massachusetts; Michigan,
except in 1892 ; Minnesota, New
Hampshire; Ohio, except in 1892;
Oregon, except in 1892; Pennsyl
vania, Rhode Island, Vermont ;
Wisconsin j' except in. 1892. Now,

Two of our former understand

One of which was to the effect
that Congress adjourned on the
4th of March at 12 M. sharp, even
if it was necessary to stop the
clock or turn it back anvhour or
so. Many have been the tales told
as to how old Capt. Bassett would
get up in the gallery of the Senate
and turn the hands of the old
clock back unawares to all, except
to those who were wise. But, ac
cording to the Record the Senate,
at least, did not ad journ this year
according to the time-honored
custom. The following from
The Record, of Saturday however,
will show that there was important
business about to be considered :
Mr. Depew. Mr. President.

Mr. Aldrich). Certainly.
Mr. Lodge. 1 This is an extraor
dinary session of the Senate; the

Bigg's Seven-ear Prolific Corn!
Over 100 Bushels per Acre.
SEED FOR SALE.
Bigg's Seven-ear Prolific Corn is one of the wonders in the agri
cultural world to-day. Last year the undersigned planted 20 acres
in this variety and secured a wonderful result.. In looking over
the field not a single stalk was found that bore less than three
ears, and many Were found that had four, five, six, eight and ten.
The 20 acres produced just 2,140 bushels of good, hard corn, mak
ing an average of 107 bushels to the acre. This is claimed to be
the largest yield ever heard of in this section of the State. The
seed for this planting was bought of L. A. Oarr, Durham, N. C,
who produced an average of 133 bushels per acre.
When the Farmers' Institute was held in Salisbury last August
and a car load of machinery was used in demonstration work on
land adjoining the above, Mr. Meacbam, superintendent of the
State's test farm in Iredell county, stated to those present: Sam
Carter, Joe Hall, Rev. J. M. L. Lyerly and others, that he had not J
seen any better corn in the btate."
Col. J. S. Cunningham, of Cuuuingham, N. C, a member of
the State Board of Agriculture, and one of the best farmers in the
State, came to Salisbury last September, and, after seeing this
field, stated that he had never seen better corn, and that it was
well worth one cent per grain. He sold several ears of it, at the
railroad station in Salisbury, at $1 .00 per ear.
The above is given to show the extra high quality and value of
this variety of corn and this lot in particular. It is the very best,
most prolific and most profitable corn that can be raised anywhere.
A quantity of this corn has been set aside for seed and is offered
to progressive farmers for only 75c a peck, $1.50 per half bushel
and $2.50 per bushel, F. O. B. Salisburv- Mouev ordr or check
