OUll HO ADS AGAIN.
With the return, of the balmy fpring
I Jays our read,- have become again as
I solid as I,rick, but uo man who has ever
J seen tbeui in the winter will fur a mo
| incut think tliey will be ever thus. The
j old adage lis." (t somewhat uftor this
j style, "In time of peace prepare for
j war," so too our plans should be laid for
iuiprjvcmeot of roads before the winter
oomes a"um. Almost every one is
clear yof the opinion that something
otiylit to be done, but 'what, is not so
clear. To our mind the first step to.
ward road improvement must be a change
|D tho system of working public roads.
This is manifest frum the faot that it is a
, complete failure. Opin ons may differ
!as to why, but all will agree that the
system ef keeping roads in repair now iu
' vogue is a complete failure, common
' sense then would say change. Hat
| changes of any kind will meet with op
, position. Tin: Legislature of 1885 pass
! Ed a law that authorised certain changes,
j buttery unwisely allowed the Juiiiiees
j of the l'cace to say whether it should be
1 adopted iu Franklin county or not, in
i ftead of making the law absolute. The
I Justice.'! met and one of them made a
j speech the substance of which wa- that |
i lie always worked the roads until he bo
! caoie forty-five and every boil - ought to
do so, of it would be unjust to him, and
the result was that only one UIHQ voted
fot tho law We suppose that uo changes
couid ever bo uiauo following the theory
of the gontlemaa above mentioned unless
we could dispose of all men who were
read froo.
The present system is obsolete. It
has beeu in use now for a century or
more, with very slight changes. The
North Carolina of to-day is so different
from the North Carolina ,if a eentury or
even a quarter of a eentury since that
nothing scarcely remains the satue, al
most all of our laws have been changed
materially silica tho present system of
working roads was inaugurated.
I The present system is unjust. It lays
the burden on those who usually havo
least use for roads. Whenever, thero is
anything said about working roads by
taxation a strong disapproval is ut ouoe
expressed. Now let us sec how this
present plan works, six days during the
year is tho limit ol tho law, put this at
three dollars. road tax then on
each man is three dollars pci aanuui.
1 Now our constitution requires taxos on
I poll to be equal to taxes on S3OO. Then
to make the matter equal property would
hnvo to pay one per cent., but proporty
owners say this is exorbitant, unjust and
uurenv.nable, they say fairness domnnds
SB.OO oft the poll aqd nothing on prop
erty. ** « say a ebasgo must be made.

COAL BURNING LOCOMOTIVES.
The Atlantic Coast Liue will put
coal burning locomotives on the W. &
W. Railroad next fall. Six new engines
ito buru coal have been ordered, and it
is intended, also, before the wintor trav
el begins, to have all the looomotivos
now in arc oil tho line changed from
wood to eoal burners. The contemplat
ed change is a measure of economy.
Goal, it is olaimed, is cheaper than wood
and time M saved in handling. It is
calculated that an- cngitu will average
fifty mibs on one ton of coal, and as the
tender will hold nbout five tons it will
be easily seen w icre the economy is.
The coal tamers will be put on in time
for winter travel and freight traffic,
| which, it 19 anticipated, will be much
I larger than die travel arid traffic last
I year.—Wilmington Star.

No one nUo gives his attention to the

closely observe tho esani : .Datun of wit

who aro intoreited as to tho result, but
will be forcibly imprcif jd w'.iji 'lie total

ment due to violated luw and gain the
point at issue stems to be paramount to
everything elso aud the mot general
way they adopt to avoid the truth wbeii
conlrouted upon oross cxaiuinatiou with
asearchiug question, is by saying, "I
don't recollect" or "I don't iciucraber,"
while to all iptastioUK favorable to their
side, their memory is perfectly clear and
thoy can readily tell all tliey know and
more too.
Wo do not complain at tho severity
of the punishment, it may be milficicnt,
but we do oempkiu at the total ueglcot
of the Courts aud Solicitors, and all
othoi /rood citizens, in not bringing this
class ofrnseuls to punishment. When
it becomes apparent that a witness, as to
a malerial fact, is swearing falsely, he
should be immediately prayed iu to cus
tody and required to gtvo security for
bis appoarancc to answer to a charge of
perjury. If a tew of these gentry wore
iealtwith pretty roughly it might be a
terror to others.
Therefore, we call upon Judges aud
Solicitors, to make an "xample of some
of them. It would have a wholesome
influence among rascals.

HUN CHOLERA MIXTURE.
Some yeas ago we copied a remedy for
diarrhasu, eholeia, fee., from tho N. Y.
Sun. We republish it to-day as it is
au excellent remedy—perhaps nunc bet
ter. A gentleman at Kooky Mount cut
the prescription from the Star aud has
tried it in many cases and with invaria
ble good results. The .SVi first pnb.
hshert it in 1851. Cut it out of the
Star to-day aud presorvJU for it will be
found very usetul in the household.
An efficient remedy for diarrhea, dys
enfry, cholera morbus und suuiuicr
complaints may be compounded as fol

I Eipiai parts of tincture rbubard, tinc

sence peppermint und spirits camphor.
Dose for adult: 15 to 30 drops in about
two tablespoonfuls of water every twen

and violence uutil relieved. One to two
doses are sufficient to relieve any mild

Ho bas left it nt tho Journal office for
