AI?D PRO?. Japan Tatias tar Gild. Treasury officials engrossed in the far reaching programme of international financing upon which the country lately has en-! tered, have' turned their chief at tention to the unexpected and somewhat disconcerting- discov ery that for the past month Ja pan has been withdrawing gold from the .United States at the rate of 150,000,000 to 200,000 000 a year. Gold exports to Japan within 11 the past three or four weeks, it is stated, have been between $10,000,000 and $15,000,000. Since January I they have totaled 35000,000. Within the next 30 days, th government has been informed they will approximate 50 per cent of the entire sum already exported in 1917. The mystery is more economic than political it is said, and there is nowhere apparent any disposition to question the mo tives of the government or citi zens of Japan in withdrawing all the gold to which they are entit led. At the same time it is realized that heavy exports of gold from this country is highly undesirable. There are a number of reas ons why Japan might have adopt ed her programme of withdrawing gold from this country. She is prospering under war condi tions, and with , the United States is a creditor nation. Russia is known to have gone in to debtfto her to the extent of many millions. jj' Stand." ,4 Thisis a mild form ot indiges tion. It is usually brought on by eating to rapidly or to much, or a food not suited to your di gestive organs. If you will eat slowly, masticate your food thoroughlyj eat but little meat and none at all for supper, you will more than likely avoid sour stomach without taking any medicine whatever. When you have sour stomach take on of Chamberlain's Tablets to aid di gestion. fftniuTkxtis A Waraint It wants to be remembered as we go along that vegetables or anything to eat is or will be more highly prized this season than diamonds. Therefore it follows that any individual who aids or abets directly, in the de struction or damage of any kind of foodstuffs whatsoever is liable to suffer the most estreme pains and penalties that can be inflat ed, without the benefit of clergy In brief, the citizens who sweats and toils and spends good money to cultivate a garden, in . .,.

Yes but the individual who per mits his fowls to pasture on other folks' gardens is without the pale of the law this year He is an undesirable at any time and this year will receive no consideration whatever. He may be thankful if he doesn't land in jail or escape lynching. .Statesville Landmark. Hts a Gc:i Opinion of Chambeflain's TIats. "Chamberlain's Tablets are a Wonder.

Come, freedom of the land, Come, meet the great demand, True heart and open hand, Take the loan! For tho hopes the prophets saw, For the sword your brothers draw, For liberty and law, Take the loan! Ye ladies of the land, As ye love the gallant band, Who have drawn a soldier's brand, Take the loan! Who would bring them what she could, Who would give the soldier food, Who would staunch her brother's .blood. Take tho loan! All who saw her hosts pass by, ' All who joined the parttng cry, When we bade them do or die, Take the loan! As ye wished their triumph then, As ye hope to meet again, And to meet their gaze as men. Take the loan! Who could press the. great ap peal Of our ranks of serried Steele, Put your shouldes to the wheel, Take the loan! That our prayers in truth may rise, Which we press with streaming eyes On the Lord of earth and skies, Take the loan! (Written in MaylS&l, at the outbreak of the Civil War.) ANOTHER SALISBURY CASE. It Prom That There's A Way Oat for fflany Suffering Salisbury Folhs. Just another report of a case in Salisbury. Another typical case. Kidney ailments relieved in Sal isbury with Doan's Kidney Pills. Mra M A Wineqoff, 331 E Kerr St, Salisbury, says: 'My back ached so that I could hardly drag myself around and in the morn ing I could hardly get out of bed. My kidneys were in bad shape and the kidney secretions were unnatural. I suffered from head aches and often felt as though I would lose my reason. I tried many medicines but nothing seemed to do me any good until I took Doan's Kidney Pills, procur ed at- the People's Drug Co. They relieved me from the first and I continued taking them until my back didn't ache and my kidneys caused me no trouble," Price 50c, all dealers.

WAR TAX ON PRESS BLOW TO DEMOCRACY. Pronesed Postal Levy at Yartace Witfc Dem ocratic Idealsas World's Greatest Educator, The Menace. The 'apparent failure of the present administration and the house to use proper discrimina tion and judgment in fixing the portion of the war burden to be borne by the press of America is strangely at variance with the theory of Liberal Democracy and is already arousing nation wi4e indignation and resentment, not only in the press, but among the fundamental democrats every where. A democratic state should, and if true to his princi ples, will always foster the wide est possible dissemination of knowledge. Books, newspapers, magazine in a word, all the literature that educates and stim ulates research and discussion, should be promoted and fostered in such a way as to make literacy and general intelligence the rote, and not the exception. This was loner the rule and working principle of our gover ment, as it has always been in an exceptionally marked degree the working principle of the En? glish govermen and other liber al nations. Indeed, it has not until the Roman Catholic hier archy organized its secret oath bound politico-religous societi pledged to the furtherance of the interests of thepapalsovereigntj that the attitude of our govern ment toward the press changed. In recent years, however, the post office department has system atically sought to. hamper ajsd restrict, if not penalize, the press.' Great railroads enjoying what a- mounted to be vast subsidies through extortionate mail, ap propriations were passed over, while the most successful agen cies quickly building up news paper circulation such as the lib eral distribution of sample copies and the giving of premiums to introduce publications, has been warred upon by the department. There has, under President Wil ron's administration, gone for ward a systematic attempt to levy enormous postal taxes on papers. In many instances where such publication enjoyed a national circulation but were neither subsidized or the recip ients of a great abvertising pa patronage, such as a postal tax would mean destruction to the journal. In the taxes now proposed to meet the extravagent war ap propriations the levy is not a rev enue-producing tax, but in the nature of the case is a tax that would lessen revenue and could ... serve no purpose but to injure the press of the nation by great ly limiting the circulation of journals and killing great num bers of papers. Hundreds of pa pers have recently been stifled to death by the revenue extort ing newspaper trust. The Newspaper Trust, when exposed by the government in vestigation, became alarmed and the public was informed that tb.2 newspaper manufactures were willing for the Federal Trade Commission to fix the price of paper. When this was done nothing came of it for the reas son that the newspaper combine fails to furnish the paper at the reduced price to any appreciable degree or amount. The trust magnates were indicted, but wnat nas oecome oi ltr nere as elsewhere, justice moved with leaaon strides, while newspaper after newspaper dies as a result oi .trust extortion ana slow ac tion of the eroverment in behalf of the people versus the trusts wnile now the government pro- 1 New Bern Man Killed at Rsfsizh. f. .. . - ...

Will Operate Canning Plant The old Rowan Canning Com pany's plant, located in East Sal isbury, will be. operated this season and will begin business about Auarust 1st C Y Sum mers, of Statesville, who has had eleven years experience in this business, will superintend the operation of the cannery. Par ticular attention will be given to the putting up of tomatoes and beans, especially the Stone and Ked Kock variety of tomatoes will be canned and in beans the Burpee Stringer, Green Pod and Refugee variety will be put up. It is proposed also to install a fruit evaporator and probably a sweet potato dry kiln. It is said there is some difficulty in getting cans. Chasles M Summers of the vi cinity of Statesville, and Martin P Moore, of Salisbury, have bought the factory and will operate it this season. The Sal isbury factory has a capacity of 60,000 cans daily. Mr. Summers will have personal charge of the factory when it begins business. He is an experienced canner and a good business man.
