her home yesterday. Mrs. Hclt

scriptions. Greensboro, N. C, April 21. In
ruling that J. O. Roach, a prominent
dentist of Madison, N. C, was guilty
of a violation of the State prohibition
laws, Recorder Hastings of the city
court of Winston-Salem, N. C, to-day
held that a dentist was neither a
practicing physician nor a surgeon
and, therefore, not eligible to write
prescriptions for whiskey. A fine of
$25 and costs was imposed.
Under the prohibition laws of
North Carolina the sale of whiskey
is placed entirely in the hands of
physicians, and to-day's ruling stops
dentists from enjoying a privilege

In his charge to th Mecklenburg

judge Biggs told the Jury It aa its

corruption In the recent Democratic

"We live under a republican form
of government," said Judge Biggs.
' and the cornerstone upon which it
is built is the ballot. If this be cor
rupt, our whole system of govern
ment is undermined. It, therefore.
should be the supreme concern of
every honest and partlotic citizen to
do what he can to see that the ballot
is kept pure and uncorrupt and to
lend every reasonable effort to the
prevention of bribery and corruption
at elections and to thi3 end give his
support and influence to any effort to
punish those who violate the statutes
enacted for the protection of the

"The conditions existing in your
city at the recent municipal primary
and elsewhere in the State demand a
rigid and thorough investigation by
the grand jury. If any credence is
to be given current reports I do not
refer to irresponsible rumors, but
both from the pulpit and the press
of your city, charges of corruption
and bribery have been made and
these charges affecting the integrity
of your electorate must not be per
mitted to pass unnoticed and I charge
you to make an exhaustive and
searching examination of these
charges of corruption and bribery
and use of whiskey at your recent
primary. God to the bottom of the
matter, gentlemen of the grand jury.
Spare no time or expense to ferret
out the guilty! The machinery of
the law is at your command. The
officers of this court will give you
such aid and assistance as they can."
Although the primary was a local
affair and provided for by local laws,
it falls nevertheless within the gen
eral scope of the State election law
and the sanctity of the ballot is pro
tected by its provisions penalizing
tfce giving of either liquor or money
in return for votes. The grand jury
at once began to work, questioning
all who might have first-hand knowl
edge of violations of the law.

A Machine to Kill the Holl Weevil.
A special from Winston-Salem to
the Charlotte Observer says:
"Completed and ready for the test,
a machine which, if successful, will
destroy the boll weevil and revolu
tionize the cotton industry of the
Southwest, is here in the office of
the Salem Iron Works. It is known
as 'H. H. H. cotton boll weevil de
stroyer,' and is the invention of C.
A. Hege of this city, assisted by J. K.
Hord, of Yazoo County, Mississippi.
For the last six weeks the two men
have labored unceasingly at their
task. On April 13th the patent was
applied for. The Inventors who are
both practical men have high hopes
of success. The machine will scarce
ly have a practical and thorough
test before next fall, but It will be on
exhibition at the State Fair In Dal
las, Texas, and at fairs at Shreve
port, La., and Jackson, Miss.
iifri l. . .
me macui ue is mounted on a
two-wheel carriage and is run by 'an
eighteen-horse-power gasoline en
gine. Five switches protrude on eith
er side, designed to strike the cotton
plant, the shock knocking the boll
weevil to the ground. Two suction
pipes are In the rear of the machine
beneath a 24-inch fan, making 2,000
revolutions a minute. Leather lips
are attached to the ends of the pipes,
dragging the ground lightly and the
powerful suction is intended to draw
the weevil up through the tubesand
against a wire screen to their death.
