The Frog You don't hear these old nursery rhymes any more because the old South ern "Mammy" has about passed away. Some of these days; however, a magnificent mon ument will be erected to those faithful old souls who played such an important role in the early life of the Southern people. And mark it down right here In less than twenty-five 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, of the Union And Robert E.

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 clergyman now In the church Is elig ible to the benefits. It puts the onus of future support on the churches and the laity and na on. assessments drawn from already scanty clerical 1nnmM It mi t tha whalR Ihiia nn I thu nlan. nt luntifA anil' fair nlnv and not on that of charity; and at once sets clerical workers free from the haunting terror of an impecunious senescence, either for themselves or for their widows, if they chance to be believes. Self-respect will grow, pro fesslonal prestige will mount, Indif ference to death and peril will be in- Ahnv tenslfled if they come in the path of this is case with mirrored front.
