Membus of the Ground Hog Committee are
Somewhat Flabbergasted.
The ground hog committee has
not been ahle to get together on a
report. Each one seems to have
1 i . i i.
a pbt cneory aoout nis noguips
conduct on Sunday, February 2d,
and consequently, instead of a
good, strong statement that would
definitely fix tb) ground hog's
status forever, we have a number
of minority reportrs which seem
to be mere conjectures. The chair
man of the committee, Col. Lucky
Freeze, has been kept at home for
several days with a severe earache
and had not given the matter the
serious consideration it deserved.
Dowie Bostian was too much con
cerned about the groui.d hog found
at the butcher shop to give atten
tion to other matters ; but two of
the committee, Me?iarn. Sechler
and Kirk, had about agreed that
the ground heg was kept at home
with her young and tiid not find
time to come out, and. lastly Jonas
Kirk, announces that the said hog
is a devoted Christian and thought
it would be breaking the Sabbath
to come out. . This report is quite
unsatisfactory and of course the
weather is accordingly unsettled.

The Rowan County Commis
sioners met in regular monthly
session Monday and held a two
day's session. A matter of gfeat
importance to the taxpayers of
the county was taken np Tuesday
afternoon and discussed. It
relates to the working of the pu
blic roads of Rowan. The beard
took under advissment and con
sidered the question of drawing
up a new road law or amendment
o the present law. Some of the
main features in tbe law consider
ed was the levying of a special
township tax. of from. 15 to 45
C3nts on the $100 valuation of
property and 45 cents on each
poll in each township to be appor
tioned the full amount peid in'
fox road improvement. This
plan would eliminate the present
plan of working the publio roads
of the county by . free labor. It
is proposed to copy, some of the
features of the present splendid
road law now in force in the neigh
boring county of Cabarrus. A
law is being drawn by the county
attorney which will be sent to the
legislature for ratification.

The Lord is my Shepherd, why
should I fear?
He oareth for me with tbe kind
est of care.
I shonld not grow weary, despond

The Lord is mv' Shepherd, I
shall not want.
He maketh me in His green pas

I should thank Him for this as
the days go by.
He leadoth me by the still waters
To Him I should ever give hon

And when I am sin-sick, He
maketh me whole;
The Lord, in His mercy, re
storeth my soul.
In the paths of righteousness for
His name's sake,
He leadeth me, and no other
should I take.
Though I walk through the valley
of the'shadow of death,
I will fear no evil, for He giveth
me breath ;
In life, or in death, wherever I
The Lord, in His goodnes3, is
ever with me.
Thy Church and the Bible forever
should be,
As Thv rod and Thy staff to
comfort me.
In the presence of enemies, a ta
ble is spread ;
He clothes me and gives me my
daily bread.
As long as I live, for "Christ I
should toil;
For, it is He that anointest my
head with oil:
With gifts of His love, every day,
every hour,
He fills my cup till it runneth
over. .
Surely goodness and mercy shall
follow me
All the days of my life, and in
I will dwell forever in the house
of the Lord,
If I do His commands and obey
His word.

Deatness Cannot be Cured
by local applications, as they can
not reach the diseased portion of
the ear. There is only one way to
cure deafness, and that is by con
stitutional remedies. Deafness is
caused by by an inflamed condi
turn of the mucous lining of the
Eustachian Tabes. When this
tube is inflamed you have a rum
bling sound, or imperfect hearing,
and when it is entirely closed,
Deafness is the result, and unless
the inflammation can be taken
out and this tube ' restored to its
normal conition, hearing will be
destroyed forever, nine caies out
ten are caused by uatarrn, wnicn
is nothiug but an inflamed condi
tion of the muoous surfaces. -
