"The following is an "CTCtract from
an address delivered by President
John A}.. Kllgo, of TrinUv- College;
Durham, N. C.. before the American
Bankers' Association at Chicago, Frl- ,
? day .Evening, frMiTvmhvr 1.7.
"One of The most splendid achieve
ments of our American history Is the
unlimited opportunity it has furnish
ed men of all classes and races to im
prove their industrial and social con
dittoh's anil to rLau,-jo the? hlghmtj
points of success. fh the halls of
>^arae art* recorded the ^ames of those
who have d?me some immortal thing
ln~lctters or art or war or pontics,
but a roll that also reflects great
lion Or upon our . American govern-,
ment, the one that marks*' Che high |
point of our socijii yvolution,'*is that
long roll of Americans who began at |
the lowest point aiid_lijL fidelity and!
labor rose stop by step till th*\v
...reached the summit* of Industrial in
fluence and prtwer. . ThaTts the com- 1
mou story of American qien of bust
""tiess success. The Americans- today
who "l'1' Inl-1'.' ii.nl nrf nil
power throughout the world, whose
names give value to commercial pa
per irr every market, bear witness to
the genuineness of democracy in our
Industrialism. The little tot who is
selling his papers along the street at
a penny a copy Is the citizen of a
country and the heir of industrial
traditions that make possible* to him
the day when he will own the paper
and the voice become a national
power. That is not the dream o?
democratic itleallsm, it is the wonder
ful re. ord of our democratic Indus.]

Strrrnrir'cotlegp president, to somel
extent seriously desirous of incalcat-l
ing itj Southern youth v.-ho come up]
under my direction the true idea of I
Americanism as I se.e it. I have often j
coveted the right 'ami the ifbillty to
build on my college grounds nnj
American monument. I should build
a great, strong pedestal upon which 1
with their ?hoaih**d swords at their'
^feet, clasping each other's right hanijj
I should place the statues of riysse?|
S. Grant and Robert K." Lee, the heroj
of v t-t??ry and <lu? linro <?f defeat ? L
should-*}- mortise by their hand-grip
t he reunion of a lap<l too strong to be
hewn asunder by batle-axe. 1 should
adopt as the sentiment to be inscrib
ed upon it. those famous words of
Grant: "Let us have pence.' "inr one
side of ihe pedestal with brenze tab
let 1 should celebrate 1 he nf
the federal soldier; on another J
should pay- tHbute to the unparal
JeTed patriotism of American mother
hrw i and j'.ptmti.'wi: v.'.n ?"?!? ir.l re
maining I should pay d':e honor to
the high example of loyalty ?o sub
limely illustrated by the old negr^i

for 30 pounds tare.
Now, the average farmer instead
of putting 170 pounds of lint cotton

a meeting of -foreign manufacturer:!
? with^representatives of .the Parmero^

two ago. the manufacturers inquired
"Why is it that when cotton leaves
the farmer's gin it has only 20 to 22
pounds of tare, but has 3-1 pounds by
-the time it reaches us?" This la the
explanation.
Put on all the bagging and ties that
you can buy for 3 1-2 cents a pound
and sell for 12 1-2 cents. ?Progres

REP. JNO. SMALL
MAKES A TALF^
Was Ofator at the PantegaHigfa
School on Tuesday
Last.
Hon. Jot'Jijs.y- Smalt delivered an
educational address at the Pantego
AihJeiny on last Tuesday evening.
WtlttF Introducing the speaker, Mr.
T; HrJohnson, speaking of the schoot
of Prof. Bennett and his capable as
sistants have made that school sec
ond to none in Beaufort county.
Mr. Small made a very interesting
address. He spoke of the good repu
tation the school bore all over the
flinty LUi highly commended -fhe
school _for its beautiful school
garden, and hoped that some day all
the other schools in the Old North
Slate might folio*- -the good initiative
set by the Pautego High School. He
did not fail to make a plea for agri
culture li? the schools, and the benefit
of a good garden In making practical
tests of the knowledge imparted in
the text. Prepare the children for
actual life, was his. plea, pleasingly
and even eloquently made. And In.
addition to what, is taught in the
Pantego school now, he said he hoped
the time would soon come when, like
Washington this year, domestic sci
ence and manual training, both,
would be added to the curriculum.
He then warned the people not to be
ifrald of high taxes tor build up the |
?cfiTool, as in the future It would ntvl
back a hundred fold, both In a model,
M-liuul and lu better iltiEcnelilp.
This address was very opportune,
an the school Is in a very crowded
'"condition. "Two years ago. says Prof.
Bennett, the school began with an
enrollment of 75 pupils; last year
Willi 95; wlillc thla year i( atarta owl
with 125, so that larger quarters and
more teachers arfc ft. necessity. But^
with the loyalty.to the school already
shown, with the additlomil school
spirit credited by'/ this. ..address. and
.with the broad-m: . I?'.J-m* :? who-are
lexers In tint yonfraunity, the school
will no*^ doubt" be properly care for.
?>Ji Wf .Intrdav mornlirg .Mr. Smal 1
visited the High School and- while
there Incpectetf^the pehool garden.
He. e;c pressed himself as ? highly
pleaded, both with the .-chool garden
and the good deportment of the
pupils.
