The members of the Mulberry
Farmers' Union have taken steps
to re-establish tu girls canning
clubs in their vicinity. This is a
species of thrift that deserves to
be encouraged whether conducted
by the girls, the young ladies,

the most economical method of
canning to say nothing of the
wisdom of preserving fruits and
vegetables both for home con
sumption and for the market.
May the Mulberry brethren succeed.

The county commissioners, be
sides furnisLiag quarters rent
free, have appropriated $300 to
the Salisbury Public Library. A
library is a good Hng, just like
a free lunch counter, but only a
very limited number of citizens
get any benefit from it, while all
are thus forced to pay taxes to
keep it up. The poor and work
iag classes who haven't time tt
read are , thus forced to furnish
free reading matter to an extent
for the well-to do and indolent.
The widow and orphan are pau
perized by the injustice of such
toadyism to the classes and are
then fed by the cold hand of
charity. People ought to be ex
cused from anarchy when there is
so much incentive to drive them
to it. We venture the assertion
that there is not 1 per cent, of
the citizens of Rowan benefited
by this expenditure, but there
may be 10 per cent, of 'the popula
tion being accommodated.

ess. Known Manuscripts Show -the
Bible as It Existed Soon After
The oldest Bible manuscripts now In
existence date' from about 300 to 450
A. IX, and show us the Bible as it ex
isted son after the apostolic days.
All the earlier manuscripts were ei
ther lost or destroyed in the terrible
persecutions, which were directed not
only ai'ninst the Christians but against
their treasured sacred writings, their
enemies thus toping to stamp out even
the slightest -traces of Christianity.
The three oldest manuscripts now -in
existence ar& known as the Sinaitic,
the Alexandrian and the Vatican- man
uscripts, the Christian Herald says.
The Sinaitic was found by tlie eminent
Bible scholar, Teschendorf, In V con
vent on Mount Sinai in 1844. ItTcon
tains the Septuagint, other parts of
the Old Testament, the New Testa
ment complete, and some of the apoc
ryphal books. The writing, after a
lapse nf more than fifteen hundred
years, Is Etill clear and legible. The
Alexandrian manuscript, which came
to light in 1628," Is not quite eo ancient
as the Sinaitic It has the Old Testa
ment complete, except that ten leaves
are missing, and the New Testament
lacks iiarly thirty leaves. It is In the
British museum. The Vatican man
uscript the most ancient of all is a
great treasure, consisting of about
seven hundred leaves of vellum bound
In book form. Part of Genesis is
missing, and also a number of the
psalms. The New Testament Is com
plete up to Hebrews, nrnth chapter.
Other early Bible manuscripts of great
value, but inferior to the three men
tioned are the Codex Ephraem and the
Codex Beztie, besides 'which there Is a
long list of later manuscripts.
