Oath of
: Set Right.
Ed. Jouunal: I notice in this week's
Journal, someone front Jasper, signed
Voice of the People, is giving ns down
' the road some Tory . timeljr advice, ac
cording to hia war' of thinking. He has
leen informed that a counter petition
has been circulated opposing free de
livery, and of course puts the blame
upon the postmaster at Bellalr. I hereby
state that I have not signed pot circulated
a petition against free delivery, though
1 was asked t do so. I. hare, opposed
free delivery on our route and am ' now
opposed to It as it has been presented to
me, and this is my reason: As proposed,
it puts our mall one day later getting oil
'hence all of our track mall will have, to
be sent to Clark, as we can send none of
It off by the free delivery plan, in time to
get to the markets before our track gets
, there. To the truckers or buslnes men
.on the route there will be constant dis
appointment. ' This Is the way I look at
it, and I am looking through Impartial
glasses at the whole matter. , If I even
thought the majority of the poople' on
(he route would be - benefitted I would
not raise one-word of opposition . No
mai) can serve this route a well coming
from New Dern In the morning as it can
going to Now Bern in time for the
northern and western mail, any one who
tea at all can see this. : .' '
; Now that ludicrous little thrust at the
P. M., at Bellalr, about being ."one of
the luokles" feeding from Uncle Sam's
trough, I for one P. M don't And the
trough so well filled as to Induce me to
get np a petition against my neighbors
interests. Undo Sam has not enough to
induce me to do that. When I oppose
anything it Is because I think it wrong
or not-best, . A 4th class post office pay
ing 4 or 5 dollars a month, Is, to say the
most for it, rather a shallow trough to
be fed at. :i yi -v ;

More than this, I have recently heard
complaints ' from some free dellvory
routes, showing that they were not get
ting what was promised. Let me ven
ture a little suggestion to "Voice of the
People.", If he will sound a clarion

to the; immediate need of better roads he
will pave the way, (If he succeeds In get
ting good roads) for a rural free deliv
ery that would bo a great blessing to,the
traveling public. V f ; ' ;

by a number of Southern Reput

strong Federal election law against a -leged
Intimidation, ballot box fraud?,
etc., was considered yesterday by the

Messrs, of .Missouri, and
Gibson, of Tennessee, who have assisted
In framing the bill, wers heard on the
alleged extent of election irregularities
in their Slates and elsewhere In t e
Houth. They explained the a'leged pat

by the Governors, and alio cited recent
decisions of the courts which showed,
the) contented, thai the judicial brant h
took a somewhat lenient view of ballo -box
trregnlarities. '
Mr. Gibson said It was bad enough to
deny the franchise to tbe negro, but
when the white man also was denied the
franchise tbe situation became intolera
ble. This drew a spirited rejoinder
from Representative Sulloway, of New
Hampshire, who maintained that black
and white alike were entitled to protec

happy results. I have had no more
trouble and when one can go to eating
mince pie, cheese, candy and nuts after
such a time, their digestion must be
pretty good. 1 endorse Kodol Dyspep

Nervous Derangement the Result of
Eye Strain.
The strain imposed upon tbe eyes, by
various optical defects has a decided
effect upon the nervous system, and by
the leakage of nerve force often leads
to a train of evils far more extended
than we are accustomed to suppose.
The strain calls for an excessive sup
ply of nervous energy, acting as an ir
ritant to the central nervous system,
anally ending In a breaking down of tho
system, which, not only caused misery
and suffering, but statistics are n I
wanting to prove that tbe duration of
life Is materially shortened thereby.
Epilepsy (or fits) Is one of the most
terrible diseases that con befall any hu
man being, and Its treatment by drugs
alone (by Dr. C. H. Brown, Phlla.) is
very unsatisfactory.
Of late years specialists on nervous
diseases have found that error of refrac
tion bear a direct casual relation to
tbeaitacksand that properly adjusted
glasses are an indlspensible adjunct to
the treatment, If they do not ever super
sede all other methods of treatment.
