Would Sell Two of Them.
The ireiitlciiien w ho opposed the
Watts law fogged almost with tears
that legislature do not discriminate
in favor of the town againt the
country by depriving the latter of
the irlnrlous privilege ot miming
whiskey and giving that privilege
to the former. It turns out mat
there are live hundred and thirty
Mills iu North Carolina, and of this
number hardly thirty, we dare say,
are in the towns. And so It watt
discrimination with a vengeance.
All good men, however, will re
joice in Mich discrimination. It
means that from four' to live hun
dred of these infamous dens will
leave the State or go out of busi
' lies, for the average town has too
iiiauv level headed business men in
it to nllow a filthy whiskey still to
come in and poison its atmosphere.
If a man is too blind to so sec that
a "hell kettle" (as preacher Little
calls the distillery) is an nnmitti
euted curse, the strong arm ought
to come in and protect him from
himself. This particular feature
of the Watts law ia praise worthy

GOOD BREAD COMES
Only From GOOD FLOUR.
Many a well-meant, well planned attempt at bread-making is
wrecked on the shoals of poor l!our. Cheap flour Is bad flour Its
low price is the maker's excuse for the inferiority ol his product.
(lfod bread is not hard to make- Mull the voyage is over when you
get good flour- Whiter, stronger, sharper, purer flour than ours can
not be made- Therefore we caution you to ask for the "GOLDEN
KOI)" and "INVINCIIil.li" brands. These brands are sold at the low
est price (or which really first class flour can be sold and IU prlca Is
the.highest you need to pay in order to get the best. Beware ol bad
flour and short weights. Our quality and weights are guaranteed.
