Greensboro Daily News. :
tYe have been an insistent be
liever in trading with home mer
chants. You can see what you
buy, get what you want, and
cause a larger circulation of your
money at home. One of the most
striking and pointed Illustrations
of the advantage of buying at
home is given in the following,
copied from the Sample Case. It
is an interesting story: v; ;
Down' in Oklahoma the Other
day a man went into a store o
buy a saw. He saw the kind he
wanted and asked the 'price'.) It
was $1.65, the dealer safdv v '
"Good gracious,' said the man.
"I can buy the same thing from
Sears, Roebuck and company for
"That's less than it cost me,'
said the dealer, "but I'll sell it on
the same terms as the mail order
house iust the same." -
"Alright." said the customer.
"You can Bend it along and
charge it to my account."
"Not on you life," the dealer
said. "No charge accounts.
You can't do businesB with the
mail order house that way. Fork
over the cash." . , .
The customer complied.
"Now 2 cents postage and 5
cents for a money order."
"Certainly, vou have to send a
letter and a money order to mnil
a order house, you know."
vj-he customer inwardly raving,
kept to his agreement and paid
"Now 25 cents for expres-
sage." - ' ' - -t .' .--
"Well, I'll be-," he said, but
paid it saying: "Now hand me
that saw and I'll take it home
myself and be rid of this foolery
"Hand it to you? Where do
you think you are? You're in Ok
lahoma and I'm in Chacago, and
you will have to wait two weeks
for that saw." ,
Waereupon the dealer hung
the aw on a peg and put the
money in his cash drawer.. .
"That makes $1.67,' he said.
it has cost you z cents pore
and taken you two weeks' longer
to get it tnan if you bad paid my
price in the first place." .
That story is not an eraggera
tion, as anyone wno nas Kept a
strict account of mail order house
transactions, will agree.' It not
only cost more in the long run
and in the sum total, but it wast
es a lot of time. It takes as long
to write the order, 1 go to the
postofflce and get a Money order
and mail it as it would to go to
your nearest dealer, and buy it
outright and carry it home with
you. " ; . . -., ' r

Some DoD'ts For Tbe Sick Room;
Don't whisper in a sick .room.
Better to laugh, sing, screamv
dance, anything but whisper.
Whispering always arouses sus
picion and a patient might sleep
during a low-toned conversation
but there is no sleep while v. bia-
pering is going on.
Don't stand just outside the
sick room and talk. Either go
in and let the patient hear what'
you have to say, or else go where
he cannot hear the sound of your
Don't let the sick room be the
general sitting-room for the fami
ly and for visitors. A Bick room
should always be kept quiet, and
tbe patient should be permitted
to sleep or to respond to the calls
of nature without the embarrass'
ment of asking friedns to retire.
Don't let food remain in the
sick room. When food is brought
to a sick person and he does not
wish to eat let it be taken away.
A sick person never acquires an
appetite by the sight or odor of
Don't permit bottles, glases,
spoons and other utensils to ac
cumulate in a sick room. When
next you enter a sick room where
there is a competent trained
nurse note the scrupulous cleanli
ness of every thing about he
room. You will, find nothing to
draw flies, nothing to cause diss
greeabie odors and no accumufo
tion of bottles or dirty utensils
that suggest disease.
Don't close up the windows
and doors. Let the patient have
plenty of freBh air. Y may
not feel the ned of this' because
you have been out of doors and
filledyour lungs with air. The pa
tient cannot get out. He is de
pendent non the air of the room.
Let it be sis pure and as Treshr as
that outside. Jf the patient is
cold, add more covering or apply
artificial heat, but never convert
a sick room into a closed furnace.
In every sick room there should
be at hand a thermometer which
should not l egister above seven
Don't speak of unpleasant
things to the sick. Never tell a
sick person of a death or of any
Don't suggest to a sick person
that something he has eaten or
is about to eat will not agree with
him. I have often wondered
how a guest would, feel if, when
invited out ; to dine, the boBt
should ply him with Uuch ques
tions as these: "Do you think
you can eat it? Are you not
afraid it will make you sick? Are
vou nauseated? Do you want to
puke?" And yet sick people,
whose stomachs are far more
delicate, are constantly asked
just such questions as these.
Dr. B. K. Hays, in The Progrea-,
Cotton Growing Activity la northern
, Throughout the district of Ciu-
dad Porflrio Diaz, Mexico, Con
sul Luther T, Ellsworth says
that farmers are ', planning to in
crease largely the acreage in cot
ton for 1912, particularly in the
irrigated portions. These lands
were covered with water until
thoroughly saturated; plowing
began early in : December. and
planting will commence in the
spring. Large' quantities of seed
have been imported from the
United States; ' ? ' ,

r-j Important Adv Ice.
a Consumption is curable. This
does not mean that every case of
consumption can be cured. Ad
vanced caseB yield very slowly to
treatment if at all. It does not
mean that anyone having con
sumption will get well without
making tbe supreme offort of his
'life. Merely hoping to get well
will avail little. To cure even an
early case of consumption rcquir
es an unyielding determination
on the part of the patient that
he will live according to well de
fined sanitary and hygienic laws
The-first step in the cure of
the disease ij to recognize that
the disease exist. Once estab
lished, make no effort to dodge
the fact: Then away with the
idap that the illness is "only i
deep seated cold" or "simply t
bad case of stomach trouble".
The issue most be squarely met.
nemeraoer tnat early cases
of consumption are frequently
diagnosed as malaria, dyspepsia,
etc. Better far, to take the view
that the trouble is consumption
and find out later that its malaria
or something else, than to under
estimate the importance of tbe
The second step is to provide
a place for living and sleeping in
the open air. By all means live
out of doors in the open air and
auqshine whenever the weather
permits, ii you cn't camp out,
put up a tent in your door yard
or back yard, build a sun parlor

clude ra n or snow.
Proper diet is of the greatest
importance in the treatment of
consumption. Consumption is a
wasting disease. To counteract
this tendency and to build up the
body it is absolutely necessary
that the consumptive be given
nourishing foods in abundance.
Mrllt'and raw eggs are perhaps
the best article of diet known for
this purpose. Individual cases
will differ greatly, but in general,
a consumptive will need approxi
mately the following daily al
lowance of food; two to three
quarts of milk, three to eight
eggs, four to eight ounces of
meat,eix to eight ounces of bread,
two ounces of butter, one help
ing each of cereal, potatoes, and
pudding, two to four apples and
the juice of a lemon. Some pa
tients will be able to increase
this allowance 50 per cent or ev
en "more, while others will do bet-"
ter on perhaps 25 per cent less.
Plenty, of rest is absolutely
necessary. Keep a .careful tab
on the body temperature and if
the evening temperature rnha as
high as 100, decrease the amount
of physical exertion to half. :
Above all things, avoid patent
medicines, cough cures, "con
sumption cures", ; and whiskey
and other alcoholic drinks. Be
cheerful, keep clean, bathe daily,

Tne Rlgbt Kind ol Ambition.
' iBy Miss Ethel FutrilU
No man however great or small
has accomplished anything wor
thy of note without the actual
experience of hardships and toils.
All our motives for good or
evil are centered on mankind,
and we are always at work
toward these ends.
O ir great inventors have ne
cessarily seen and felt the need
of modern appliances of life, and
no doubt realizing that by their
patience, self-confidence and skill,
tbe grinding labor of humanity
could be greatly minimized and
softened, they have exerted them
selves physically and mentally
until - they' ' have accomplished
themselves to this great end. An
inventor' is not essentially a phil
anthropist nor are all inventions
prompted by ambition or the de
sire to attain fame and riches.
It is true that the vanity of
ambition is always grasping for
the goal of fame, but it is also
true that the nobler sentiments
of man do not strive for fame
alone, but rather for the better
ment ni mankind and their occu

Address on Tbe Subject to tbe
Kinston Free Press.
Mr. G. V. Cowper. of the Kin
ston bar, delivered an able and
helpful lecture on "The World
Wide Peace Movement", Sunday
night in the Baptist church. The
address was under the auspices
of the Woman's Missionary So
ciety of the Baptist church, and
was heard by a large and inter
ested audience. Mr. Cowper
showed a peculiar familiarity
with his subject and gave hia
hearers something to think about.
He showed that in the past not
only nations resorted to war to
settle their difference?, but that
indviduals also employed arms
with which to settle their difficul
ties. However, as civilization ad
vanced, individuals resorted to
the courts for an arrangement of
the disagreements. "Why should
not nations do likewise?"
Why not settle international
differences by an international
court, such as The Hague tribun
al? War not so much as to its.
cost in dollars and cents, but in
its toll of human lives, has be
come so revolting to the Chris
tian nations that men of influ
ence and means are giving freely
of their time and money to bring
about the conditions prescribed
by tbe Golden Rule. Then it is
that men and nations will "beat
their swords into plowshares and
their spears into pruning hooks,
and nations will learn war no

Tne Lesson Id It.
A life is marred or made in
youth. Character formed early
in life simply unfolds an develops
as the individual grows older. A
boy who will cheat on the high
school examinations will cheat
on the college examination. He
will not he.-itate to defraud his
fellowman when he gets put into
the world. A youth who will de
ceive his mother, or his teacher,
in seemingly trivial matters, will
forthwith use deception in the -
real issues of life.
Such was. the record of the
