A Sensible Charge
Those who listened to Judge Wilson
WarKck’s charge to the grand jury Mon
day morning were strongly impressed by
his straight-forward assertions regarding
The young jurist declared that too
many cases growing out of malice and
spite are crowding our court dockets and
that taxpayers' money is being spent to
no purpose at all in the trial of such cases.
Grand juries, he declared, should pay no
attention to many petty and trivial cases
such as consume the time of many courts.
Here is a condition not peculiar to
Wilkes. Court dockets all over NoidJi Car
olina are clogged with “you indict me and
m indict you” cases. And most of the
time, the spiteful neighbor knows enough,
however trivial, to get a warrant and a
bill of indictment.
Doubtless many cases on the docket of
Wilkes Superior court could be nol press
ed without serious reflection upon the law
■enforcement agencies and without impair
ment to public faith in the courts. And
we might add, that this course could be
taken with a consequent saving of con
siderable proportions to the taxpayers.
Judge Warlick is making a splendid im
pression on his first official visit to
Wilkes. Altliough a young man, his four
years on the bench have shown him to be
among the ablest judges in the state.
Look Out For Carbon
We have seldom heard of a more dis
tressing accident than the death of nine
Dartmouth students and their pet dog,
as they were sleeping peacefully in their
fraternity 'club house on the college cam
pus. Something went wrong with the fur
nace, and they were killed in their sleep,
everyone who was in the building, by the
deadly cailxjn monoxide gas.
"This is a fonn cf poisoning which is
becoming much too common. More than
60,000 persons were' killed last year by
catbon monoxide. Some ware overcome
while in their cars, left running in closed
garages.-Many died from sleeping in
closed rooms with a gas fire going. There
were comparatively few who met their
death from the gases escaping from a fur
nace, as jn the Dartmouth case, but
enough to make it seem desirable to utter
a warning to everybody who depends upon
coal stoves or coal furnaces to look to
their heating plants.
Many people have the idea that they
can always smell the gas in time to open
a door or window. And many have met
their deaths because they did not realize
that the poisonous carbon monoxide
which'is given off whenever coal or pe
troleum products are burned, is odorless.
Its presence cannot be detected by the
■ nose. The unpleasant odor of coal-gas or
-the exhaust fumes of an automobile mis-
,0 leads folk into thinking that unless they
smell something there is no danger.
Nbbody can smell carbon monoxide.
There is no waniing but the sudden col-
lapse and speedy death of the victim.
Most of these deaths occur in winter,
when furnaces are being forced and win-
^ dows are kept closed, when it seems to be
. J easier to start up the car before opening
^ the garage doors. There is only one way
’ sto prevent it, and that is never to run a
cak in- an enclosed space unless there is a
door or window wide open; never to enter
OP aieep in a room or a house unless cer
tain that the furnace flues are properly
^v^xting and the deeping room is well

A eWA Memorial
We are fully in agreement with Coun
ty Superintendent Eller that the Ferguson
school building will be a permanent CWA
memorial. Wilkes is fortunate in obtain
ing one of the two complete school units
erected by CWA labor in North Carolina.
Without CWA, what the school situa
tion at Ferguson would have been is
problematical. We congi-atulate the CWA
administration and all who used their in
fluence toward getting through this pro
srent of umunal Interest

For the enllKhtment of those few
who do not know BnxS) they are
asked to recall many of the exeit-
iog weetem tUina which they
have seen In which a certain
youthtnl actor emulated the star
In feats of daring horsemanship
and thrilling advebture. In aU.
probshillty, that actor was Boss
Barton. ' *
The Liberty 'Theatre manage
ment is fortunate to be able to
present thia popular screen fav
orite to local audiences and at
such reasonable prices. Not only
has Bum Barton played with the
screen’s most popular stars In
feature pictures, but be'has co-
starred with many of them in
excitif^ serial stories. Thrill^,
action, excitement, adventidre—.
all that go to make up an enter
tainment film—are as synony
mous with. the name of Buss
Barton as they are with such
well known players as Tom Mix,
Tim McCoy and Buck Jones. He
has all the attributes which have
proven so successful in the ca
reers of these older stars—the
only difference If any being in
years of experience. Accompanied
by a group of artists whose j
knowledge of western life, ob
tained through actual experience, |
entitles them to the appellation
of genuine cowgirls and cowboys.
Buzz will entertain his audience
with a sample of life in the wide
open spaces. The Buzz Barton
company has proven one of the
most successful attractions now
touring the country.

PARABLES OF THE KINGDOM
Lesson for March 11th. Matthew, chap.
Golden Text: Isaiah 9:7.
The characteristic method of Jesus was to
herald His message in the form of vivid pic
tures, or parables. In this way He guaranteed
that the gospel would be surely remembered, for
pictures always remain in the mind more easily
than argument or exposition devoid of imagery.
‘‘Truth embodied in a tale” is a vt ry effective
form of instruction.
In the beautiful chapter chosen for our lesson
there are eight striking parables. An entire
period could be devoted to each of these appeal
ing stories. Two of them, the parable of the
sower, and the parable of the tar's, are full
length sketches. The others are vignettes merely.
Suppose we look at four of these miniatures.
Consider the parable of the must^ seed.
Here we have a prophecy of the expansion of the
divine Kingdom. The mustard seed, proverbially
the tiniest of all grains, becomes, at last, a
mighty tree, its splendid branches lifted heaven
ward for the refuge of birds and the comfort of
man. So is it with the commonwealth of God.
The life of Jesus was obscure. Few heard His
gracious but urgent gospel. At the time of His
cruel death His movement was a mere speck
upon the horizon of men’s interests. But look at
it now! Through the long centuries it has gath
ered to itself many riches and peoples until it
stands before us today, a great treasury of
thought and life.
The parable of the leaven illustrates the per
meating quality of God’s Realm. Note that leav
en is inward, unseen, and silent. So the dirine
kingdom advances in the inner hearts of men, as
an invisible, quiet force. Shunning notoriety,
statistics, and trade returns, it makes' its pres
ence felt unobtrusively, calmly, without the
blare of trumpets. But its influence is none the
The paraWes of the hidden treasure and the
pearl of great price illustrate the surpassing
worth of the heavenly commonwealth. In both
cases there is exultant joy over the possession y
of wealth of supreme value.
