A WIDOW BY DEATH
We heard a man make a plea for help for
a widow an.i her son last Sunday at a country
Sunday School. He said, “She is a good hard
working woman and is a widow by death.” After
thinking over his statement and considering the
reports concerning widows of other sorts, we
decided that his distinction was well expressed.
SERVICE THAT SATISFIES
The Carolina Power and Light Co. has re
duced its light rates again. Using considerable
current, we naturally are pleased. From our ex
perience, we believe there are few public utilities
in the State that seek to give service that satis
fies like this corporation. Government control
may be good, but we are very well satisfied with
what we have.

HOW TO SETTLE THE LIQUOR QUESTION
It is probable that almost every citizen of
the state has his solution of this problem that
grows more problematical every day. By the
seventh of January it will eclipse the Duke of
Windsor, Old Age Pension, Schools, roads and
every other matter of public concern in North
Carolina. The more the question is discussed
the more muddled it will become and it is prob
able that the General Assembly under the stress
and excitement will make another mess of it be
fore it is settled to the dissatisfaction of every
Here is what we believe should be done.
Just as soon as permanent organization is effect
ed, let the General Assembly pass a bill calling
for a referendum of the question within thirty
days, or sooner if possible. This will head off
hot air politicians and fanatics on both sides
and the expressed will of the people will be more
nearly learned than by any other means. With
the will of the people known it will not take the
Legislature very long to shape up such laws as
necessary to carry out the mandates of the peo
ple. No other way is so fair, no other way will
satisfy the people of this state.
Our own opinion about the whole matter is
that in this section drinking is getting worse.
More people are drinking. We are having more
accidents from drunken drivers. A ten minute
drive gets one to a county ABC store. The lit
tle town of Middlesex, we are told, does the big
gest business of any store in Nash county. And
most of its customers come from Wake and
Johnston counties. Nash county is profiting
by the revenue made from sales to our citizens.
This patchwork system proposed to be propogat
ed by the Liquor Commission will not work.
One county will profit financially while others
will lose both financially and morally. Let
North Carolina be wet or dry, but do not set
liquor oases all over the state. Again, we say
let people themselves undo by their suffrage
what they did if that is their will, but never let
one man from each county speak for his con
stituency on a question so vital to every mem
ber of every fireside in our state. Let the people
speak through the ballot!

An accurate record of all your money transactions.
A legal receipt for every payment made.
It’s the modern, businesslike way of doing things.
