years the South will lead the nation. It has already made a
beginning. The South has more sentiment, more legends,
more fond memories 'of its honorable ancestry than any section,

DR. CHAS. S. NORBURN,
Former Asheville Boy With Atlantic? Squadron.
An interesting; war-tim letter has
been received from a former Asheville
boy. Dr. Charles 8. Norburn, . wboae
achievements in order-to serve his
country have been of a rather remark
able nature. Dr. Norburn is now sur
pltal work in Philadelphia for the navy
iJr. Norburn was ordered aboard the
flag: ship of the Atlantic fleet whose
whereabouts is o course unknown. Dr.
Norburn is also a graduate of .the
University of North Carolina. The fol
But I am right here and it is wonder
ful. A beautiful great battleship, not
as large as the super-dreadnoughts,
but which goes with and will fight
with them. Unless you have been on
one of this size you have no idea, just
can't conceive how immense and sub
stantial looking it all is. Just a float
ing world boiled down to the essentials
and housed in steel. Tou can very
easily get lost, I often do, but keep
on going until I come to some land
mark. Instead of the tent, here Is my
nice little room, about 7x16. Walls,
roof and deck made from plate steel,
painted light green. The deck (floor)
is steel, of course, covered with dull
brownish red, composition linoleum,
painted on. The door is s sliding one,
like a railwaydoor, but I never shut it.
Its place Is taken by heavy dark green
draperies. Beautirul. Solid in color.
The same hangings are about a little
nook in which coats are kept, and
also at the side of the head of my bed
where I keep bath robe and slippers.
The furniture looks like a Pullman car
furniture, dark, heavy quartered oak
matching the floor. Bunk across the
end, built In. Slide under it for shoes.
Dandy nice desk, very heavy, drawers
reflected light, and covered with green
xeit. ;igeon-noie, eto. on the other
side is a lavatory. Oak slab four feet
wide against wall with nickel plated
fixtures projecting; ten different ones.
Wash basin folding up Into it,
1 within range, unlea tatfi detailed to a
dressiiig station on tQeL deck.
The guns are wonderful, and the
doctors are hot considered non-combatants,
either, as we are Issued a 45
Colt automatic, which we keep as long
as we are assigned to the ship.
PENSIONS FOR CIERGY.
The chief merits of the scheme as
worked. out by Bishop .Lawrence, by!
his expert actuarial advisers and by'
eminent business men are in Its cover- j
ing of the accrued liabilities or the
church as a whole, so . that every
