JAKE NEWELL EXPANDS A BIT
The Stanly News-Herald says that
in pursuance of a plan to have the
most powerful and eloquent speakers
in the state address- them, the mem
bers of a Bible class in Albemarle
listened to an able address Thursday
night by Honorable Jake Newell, of
the Charlotte bar.
Recognizing some friends of his
early youth in the audience, Jake
started off with a warning joke which!
recounted the artful dodge of a col-!
ored brother who had been in the
penitentiary nnd who afterwards took
to preaching. Arriving to deliver a
sermon one day to a new audience,
the preacher was astonished to see
before him a stalwart fellow citizen
who had been an acquaintance of his
while the two were sojurning in the
The preacher knew that the brother!
would certainly herald around the
fact that the preacher was a jail
bird, a fact the exhorter desired to j
keep secret from his audience, as he |
more than suspected such news would
'£ Put a crimp in his preaching plans.
* So his brain worked hard duripg the
preliminary singing to devise a plan
to put the former friend upon notice
that there should be no tale bearing.
Arising, then, to announce hiN text,
he said that he would not give the
chapter and verse, but only the words,
which were as follows: “He that seetli
me. and knoxveth me, and yet keepeth
his mouth -shut, verily he shall be
happy.” The threat worked and he
was not exposed.
Then, records the Stanly paper, for
thirty-five or ffirty minutes, Jake
H spilled the true milk of eloquence to
■ nni enchanted audience. Among the
I fiejskj which his searchlight illumined
were the records and characters of
■ John Calvin, Martin Luther and John
Wesley. All these having received
just etieomium for their gifts to the f
world, Jake strode on to other fields.!
But before passing them up Jake!
magnanimously declared that even J
were it in his power to do so he |
would not strike one word from the j
works of either of these great men. |
And that was Jake at his best.
That position well defines Col. Jake
himself. Little men are wont to
strike and snarl and quarrel at men
greater than themselves. Not so with
those who feel themselves entitled to
circulate in the pastures of all the
other great. Their own position be
ing secure, they envy not others their
merited glory—just like Judge Gaston
said about North Carolina. Let the
whittling* cavort, ’tin not for us to
How the gallant orator's eye must
have rolled iu fine frenzy as he ap
proached his climax and declared that
the United States is the hope of the
World nnd the church folks are the
only hope of the United States. That
brought him to the top of the stairs
of his peroration, and the next leap
capped the stack. It was shouted
in clarion notes which reverberated all
over the dining room iu which the
Bible class was munching sandwiches
and smoktVig cigarettes—-‘‘stand by
I noble causes, we are not fit to liev
till we are ready to die for a cause.”
The silence which followed was
profound as the speaker sat down
and mopped his sweltering brow.
Doubtless the audience was flabber
gasted. “Now."- we can imagine
some of them kinder saying to them
selves, “the. nigger preacher story was
a peach, and we stand by Calvin and
the other old boys, but this here dying
for a cause, what is Jake taling
* For that church crowd was better
than the ordinary one composed of
the run of us members if they ar->
willing to sacrifice an automobile ride
to go to church on Sunday, much less
knowing anything about dying for a
cause. Maybe Jake was only joking
THE WAY OF YOUTH.
In Harnett county a youth nnd a
girl of 15—the latter leaving school—
eloped nnd got married. Theu they
returned for the parental blessing.
The mother of the bride took posses
sion of her daughter and sent the
young husband about his business.
The bride was taken tfl Virginia but
the young husband followed and
sought the aid of the courts. He fail
ed. The girl bride, under parental in
fluence, was moved to say that she
didn't to go with him. latter the
bride returned to her North Carolina
home. The young husband resumed
negotiations and was so persistent
that he finally won—his wife running
away with him. Not only that, but
they took along a sister of the bride,
on matrimoney bent, and there was a
second marriage in the State to the
South of us.
All of which is evidence that when
the young folks are bitten by the mat-
Irimonial bug, when tire infection real
d _ly takes hold, parents and guardiuns
about as well throw up their
™ hands. They can advise and counsel,
as is their, duty, and they no doubt
feel many times —as the Harnett moth
er of the 15-yen r-old felt—that dras
j tic measures are warranted. But the
• drastic remedies usually drive the
. young folks to desperate measures. It
1 is the tragedy of youth that it so
often refuses to be guided by the ex
perience of elders. But it is necessary
for youth to make the same experi
ments, and necessarily, the same er
rors, as the youths that have gone
before. The experience is of value if
there isn’t a mistake that cripples or
handicaps through life. That is the
constant worry of the elders—that
youth will do something that will be
a handicap for all time, if it does not
utterly destroy. But the children of
men have tried out those matters for
themselves from the beginning, and
they will continue to do so to the end.
V If they are determined on a course ofc
action they wouldn’t believe though
one rose from the dead. And fortu
nate the they if they are only bruis
, ed, or at least, not permanently crip
i pled, by their errors. Only their
experience will seriously impress
as a rule. Sometimes the.crippling is
not sufficient warning, but in most
cases it is helpful.

I Year by year the forests have been dwindling. Each year we
have been using four and one third times as mudh timber
Us we have grown. Virtually within a period of seventy years, seventy
per cent of our forests have been cut down, and now—when we are
in sight of the very end of our timber resources—we have mills and
men equipped for cutting more, trees Into lumber at a more rapid
pace than has ever been possible before. Trees in the more accessible
regions have been cut and usod; and gradually lumbermen have had
to press farther and farther into remote forests. One striking result
of this tendency Is that greater and greater capacity for cutting down
tiees has been created, and there la competition between numerous
units to market more lumber as widely as possible.
Confronted with this problem, i
the government and the, forestry
associations have engaged in cam

brought out the fact that Sergeant
IV. M. Cofer had been riding witii the

investigations but there were Sqrne
circumstances that were not approv
ed. When the officers learned what
course the committee was going to
take, or suspected the course of the!

resignations but the board of alder-j
men refused so accept the resigna

The police committee called fori
any information against any mem-1

said that nothing was forthcoming
except nga in St the three officers who
were discharged. The committee felt 1
that members of the police force
should be above suspicion. There has
been a tendency to some extent to ,
criticise the police committee for not |
holding an open investigation, but i
the committee did not feel that this,
was the proper thing to do.
Ford Wonlcl Abolish Cows.
Henry Ford says he doesn’t believe
in dairy cows. In fact he would I
abolish bossy entirely. Dairy cows, )
say Henry, "are the most inefficient
creatures in the world. Why should
a farmer spend a lot of time tending
n bunch of cows? It takes only 20-
days of actual farm work to grow
and harvest the crops on a dairy
farm. The rest of the time is used
in taking care of the animals. It’s

these areas, quantity production Is

According to Henry. the trouble
with the farmers is that they have
bad to spend too much of their time
milking cows and taking care of all
the other animals they keep. "That
has all got to be changed. Raising
crops takes lev. than a month’s time
out of the year and the rest of the
