He is a perfect physical specimen
and au ideal soldier in appearance;
yet Crump declares that he would
rather die than be a soldier again.
He was not ever thus. When he
was a bov he lived and worked on a
small farm in Horning Star town

to be a soldier. His conception of
military lite wasdrawn from pictures
that he saw at the village otollice

sented well-groomed soldier lads,
beautifully dressed in suits of blue,
standing around in easy positions
fit objects for universal admiration.
Crump dreamed of uniforms, of walk

new nothing of the world, and he
fancied that soldiering was the easi
est job that was. He had no idea of
the inevitable drudgery that the life
entails. He would have sworn that
a soldier's duty meant being fattened
like a prize pig, and that he would
be paid for carrying a gun aud look
ing pretty.
Before he was the required age
Crump tried twice to enlist, and
when he was turned down he went
home and wept In 18U8 he attempt
ed to enlist as a volunteer in the
Spanish-American war, but his youth
stood in the way. He wept again.
He went back to thn farm and tried
to be satisfied with his life there, but
in vain. Alwavs he saw himself
striding around in that handsome
blue suit. He fell the clarion call to
wear a uniform a call that would
not be disobeyed.
He came to Charlotte last January
and enlisted under CapU V. V. For

that these things would happen.
"But my feelings began to change

so lonesome he nearly died.
Before he had been at Fort Slocum
a week he had forgotten how to laugh
or even smile, lit) wanted to come
home tliat was the burden of his
song, lie said he knew that he would
be probably caught and punished if
he deserted, but before he had been
a soldier a fortnight be had made up
his mind that ho would desert at the
first chance, no matter if he was shot
for the act.
He waited till he drew two months'
pay, and then he slipx-d away from
Fort Slocum and bought a ticket to
Charlotte. When he arrived at his

later he rapied at the door, which

that before he went to prison he felt
that il was his duty and his only

He was taken to Fort Wadsworth.
New York, and sentenced to serve a
term of six months in prison, with a
provision that hve davs should be
taken off every month for good be

they ever had, said Crump. 1 hey

So spoke Crump as he stood on
the streets yesterday morning at 4
o'clock and talked to half a doien
policemen who knew him and all
people who stopped to question him
about his experience.- He looked as

just as fit, and be belonged to a

Mr. Home Says Cotton Is Bound to
Uo Up.
Htateevllle landmark.
Some months ago siieculaUirs, after
the cotton crop was practically out of
the hands of the fanners, ran up the
price of the staple to 13 and 14 cents
and some of the 9xyulators made a
pile of money. Now that the new
crop is coining in there is, as is al
ways the case at tins season, talk oi
a big crop, and as a result the price
is dropping down. The first few
bales brought 12 cents but the fig
ures range alxnit 10 now. It is a
dangerous thing to advise farmers
what to do about selling cotton and
the landmark doesn't advise them.
Rut Mr. Ashelev Home, a prominent
citizen of the State and a prominent
farmer of Johnston county, has pub
lished a letter in which he argues
that the crop is going to be short, the
simulators and paid specialists to
the contrary notwithstanding, and
Mr. Homo advises farmers to sell no
cotton for less tlian ten cents and to
sell mighty little of it at that figure,
as he feels sure it is bound to ad
vance. The landmark's opinion is
that the weight of the testimony is
with Mr. Home and this is one year
that farmers, unless comelled to sell,
should go slow unless they consider
the price satisfactory.

However, it is not amiss to say a
word abmit the crime of st-dut-tun.
This very grave offence against vir
tur ami morality has grown alarm
ingly in reeeut years. The general
public has little idea of its pn-va-
! lencr. If all the doctors in ahmct
I any community were suddenly tupM
ion the stand and reveal all their in-
fessional secrets tliev would so startle
i lie communities in many oi
them a great upheaval would result.
In former days the man who be
trayed female virtue, if Uie woman
was resin viable at all and had male
relatives wist held a woman's virtue
as dear as life, did so at his -ril.
These things have practically 'lasst-d
away. I nlortiinately the younger
generation of both sexes have loo
often lotase manners, and alas ton
often looser morals. A woman's
name is stained, her life wrecked
The stain is not wiped out with hid

with casting out the woman anil the

The remedy? The law provides
none. It utterly falls down in this
matter. It is a dangerous thing to
advise people to take the law into
their own hands even when the law
fails but we say, and we sav it fullv
conscious of its serious import- that
t!ie betrayer of an innocent woman
mark the word innocent - should he
shot down like a dog w herever he is
found and the man who punishes
him should go scot free.
Humiliating as it is to sav it, il is
nevertheless true that often in such
cases the woman is not always guilt
less. When this is so the extreme
remedy mentioned is not justified. It
is justified when innocent virtue is
betrayed ; and in any case of this
kind the law should be made so se
vere that the wretch who ls-trays
women would pause before he would
take the risk.

A peculiar situation seems to lie
arising in the Mate. In Caldwell
county a few days ago a poor fellow
killed himself, and the only reason
assigned for the suicide is that the
man was worried because he could
not pay his debts. The idea of a
man kiiling himself for a small mat
ter like that! Generally it is the
creditor who is allowed to walk the
floor when the account is due and
he can't collect, and it is the creditor
who is allowed to go out and kill
himself because dcadlxvits have
wrecked his business, while the
debtor sleeps soundlv and never
misses a meal. Furthermore, U-ar-ing
on this subject, we note that the
merchants' association of a town in
this State we don't recall now the
name of the town has adopted a
resolution that the "association use
its influence against the election t i,
or retaining m any olhce of city,
county or State, any man that will
not pay Ins just debts. hat is
this world coming to? Actually going
hi try to keep a man out of otlice who
won't pay his debts !
Roosevelt a Pistol Toter.
Charlotte tttwerver.
The newspaers of the country are
having a good deal of sxrt over the
fact that when, in New Jersey hist
week, a gust of wind blew President
Roosevelt's coattails apart the butt of
a revolver was revealed. Yet who
can justly blame him? At this period
when cranks, lunatics and anarchists
are in wait for presidents, kings and
other potentates each is justified in
surrounding himself with secret ser
vice men and in toting a gun as an
additional precaution.

giving up its fruits to its children
and every man should take ad
vantage of the time and occasion
and prepare for winter time.
What is the first thing to do?
Collect what nature gives you
snd what your summer's toil cn
titles you to and then
What you are obliged to spend
spend it where you can gut the
best return for your money. 1 o
