brush and ' young trees, paused for a
moment as if to gather all its strength,
and charged hotly up the slope.
The air was split with the shrill rebel
yell. In answer, from the hill crest
opposite, came a thunderous roar of ar
tillery fire. The gray line fnltered (
closed its ranks and came on again.
The great battle of Chickamauga was
Tragedy hovered over the green slope
at nightfall. And amid the confusion
of the battlefield, where the screaming
shrapnel wiped out whole companies and

‘ When I enlisted I hade a wife, and
a chiltl by a former marriage.” he says.
“During the first year of the war another
child was born. My wife and family
stayed with her parents.
“Now when I left we had taken a
wounded soldier to our house to recover
and be stayed there during my absence.
After Chickamauga news came to my
family that I had been killed. It was
three years before I could return home.

preparations for a wedding in progress.
My wife, believing me dead, had worn
mourning for two years—and then she
had learned to love the young man left
behind four years before.

to get as fat away from that town —-

never went back.

had never married-this young chap. A

and died. Then, later, she married an

Crops Good hi the East.
There is an old adage that “misery
loves company”; that there is a sort of
comfort in finding others as bad off as
we are. That sort of feeling might be
defensible in some eases, but it is rarely
justifiable. \\ bile it is a human weak
ness. felt more often than is admitted, it
is wholly bad if it means that one finds
comfort in the misfortunes of others sole
ly because of his own misfortunes. Here
is a ease in which the feeling is distinct
ly contrary to the adage, as it more than
often is. we are persuaded. The drouth
has. cut the crops severely in Piedmont
and western North Carolina. In some
sections it isn’t so bad as in others, but
on the whole it is very bad, discouraging.
But unfortunates in the drought stricken
region will be glad to know that in the
section of the state east of Raleigh the
crop propsect is fine. Whether what
we uplanders consider the eastern section
generally is so blessed, we don't know.
Hut from newspaper reports, and from
the observations of visitors who liavt
been down that way, we are assured that
the prospect for crops of corn, tobacco
and cotton were probably never better.
In some counties one visitor says the to
bacco yield is beyond the capacity of the
barns, which means a bumper crop for
the locality mentioned.
That is good news. It is a pleasure
to know that the labors of the husband
men have been blessed in some sections;
and for some of the crops at least—food
and feed crops, if no others—it should
mean higher prices because of the scar
city elsewhere. Prospect is that food
and feedstuff will be much in demand in
tills section. If the easterners have corn
to sell, our folks should be able to pay
from home folk*. provided the inevitable
freight rates don’t give the products
from without the state ait'advantage, as
is usually the case. The good roads and
the Trucks may solve the‘fwobletn/- But
whether we can buy of the abundance of
the cast or not, it is cause for rejoicing
that they have an abundance. At a time
like this misery doesn't want company.
Have Mr. Duke Extend Electric Lins To
Albemarle Press .
Charlotte as a trade center for a fine
section of Piedmont North Carolina is
an ideal aim to work for.
Mr. Duke proposes to exterid his elec,
ttric line from Charlotte to Winston. Albo
pinrel is not in line, but a branch line
from Concord to Albemarle and Badin
would be a strong feeder to the main line
nnd contribute much townrdsli develop
ing Charlotte as a trade center for this
It is necessary for a section like this
to have a central point. A basis of trade
would naturally be worked out the mut
ual interest of Charlotte and each of her
smaller town patrons.
Mt. Plensant needs an outlet, and
Badin would prove ns large a patron as
any point yet proposed. Adding these
to Albemarle, we see many inducements
for Mr. Duke to extend his service In
to this territory.
There is much else that could be said
upon this point; but just now we only
throw out the suggestion. We. hope that
the matter will be brought forcibly to
the attention of Mr. Duke, nnd urge
Chailotte to take up this idea as a
very satisfactory situation which would
be to the interest of all concerned.
WeaKhy Father Slaps Daughter To
Make Her “Learn To ReatT’ Fast.
“My father helped me with my rend
ing. Every time I didn't know a word,
he slnpped me.”
The child who complacently told her
teacher about the incident was no tena
ment-reared youngster. She was the
daughter of one of the wenthiest fam
ilies in the United States. Her home is
one of the palaces near Manhattan. Six
ty men were employed there, as chauf

Met Its Match.
You ladies who like to have a dress
once in a while that every Bess, Sue
and Mary doesn’t have can* sympathize
with the poor little rich girl who re
cently returned from abroad wearing an
“exclusive” Parisian frock. They told
her in Paris that her frock was the only
one of Its kind in existence.

tion when she stepped off the boat and
saw standing on the perfectly good

girl with purely American ideas and a

wore a dress identical with hers. Need-

Governor’s Economy Program Not Par
Durham County Progress.
Perhaps the thing that will linger
longest in . the minds of the editors who
attended the North Carolina Press As
sociation at Asheville recently, is the
discussion raised by President Hraxton
in the annual message to the association,
concerning the governor's retrenchment
program in tfie state. . Mr. Hraxton fears
that the pendulum may swing too far.
to a point where the progress of the
state may be really hindered, but he
was fearless enough to express his opin
ion. If Mr. Hraxton is apprehensive,
there are other editors who have no
qualms that the affairs of the state will
agnate, and they were equally fearless
in expressing themselves as favoring
Governor McLean’s economy in public
expenditures. t We believe the governor
is eternally right. He does not intend
to pursue a parsimonious course, but
it is his idea to keep the expense of the
state within its income, and to get
along with an income that will not
amount to confiscation of the taxpayers’
property. Governor McLean made clear
his program to the editors in an address
delivered at a banquet tendered by the
Asheville Citizen,” and Mr. Hraxton,
while not exactly criticizing the governor,
but only sounded a warning, must have
been assured wiien the address was over,
that no real hurt will be done any of
the state institutions. The governor
is setting a place in state affairs that
counties and towns would do well to fol

reunions, very praiseworthy things, for

family name to get together and do a

That isn’t ancestor worship, blit de

believe that his grandpop was the
strongest man in the community is a
weak brother himself.
There may be some pulling of the long
bow at these family reunions, and a dis-l
position to make out ancestors as a little
more than they were; a belief that there
were giants in those days and that the
giants were one’s own immediate ances
tors, but that’s all right.
In addition, there is the pleasant social
intercourse that the family, with all its

Mayor Asks Dog Owners to Chain l T p
Raleigh News and Observer.
Mayor E. E. Culbreth last night issued
the following appeal to the people of
“I want to caution those persons who
have dogs to keep them penned or chained
in the yard for the next ten or
days and under strict surveillance to as
certain if any of them have been bitten
by the mad dogs that have recently run
wild in t*iie city.
“Many dogs have been bitten and the
only safe way is to keep all dogs under
strict surveillance for the next ten days.
We must stamp out this menace, and
I believe this method will be one of the
most effective ways. Today a person
was bitten by a dog that had been
chained in the yard the past few days.
Upon investigation it was learned that
the dog had hydrophobia. ’lf this dog
had not been fastened it would .in all
probability have bitten several people
and loose dogs before being killed. As
it was it got only one iierson and no
dogs. Those who desire to have dogs
should have them vaccinated at once.
We. .have an epidemic of hydrophobia
among the dogs and with the co-opera
tion of those who have dogs we can get
rid of most of it.”
Who’s Who in America contains 25,-
357 biographies. Os those whose im
portance in the life of the country en
titled them to admission to its pages,
25.9 per cent were born on farms; 245
per cent in towns of less than 8,000;
24.8 per cent in small cities; 20.0 per
cent in cities of over 50.000; 4.1 per
cent in suburbs of large cities. Sons of
clergymen made up 11.1 per cent of the
total.' which means that, in proportion
to population, they composed 28 times
the average number of notables.
