a violation of the law to deliver it and

Life insurance is a subject of interest
to every man, woman and child, to the
man because he knows that with very
little effort on his part he is protecting
his loved ones in the event of his death
hef.ire he has had the opportunity of
acquiring an estate in the regular line
of business; to the woman because she
knows that her immediate wants will
in any event, be supplied and to the
child because it assures an education

The time was when the great volume
of business done in the south went en
tirely to the northern States and com
panies and when the extent of this
business was realized, the leading citi
zens and newspapers of the south won
dered wht this money could not be kept
at home and used for home improve
ment. The question was discussed un
til business men took hold of it and
now we have a life insurance company
at our doors, as good as any of those
in the north, better in fact, because we
know the men behind it, who stand for
integrity in business and are willing to
'back home industries with their money,
and to take out policies themselves,
(the crucial test of confidence.)
The Southern Life Insurance Co. of
Fayetteville is one that can stand any
test or any comparison. ' It writes the
regular old line insurance, both participa
ting and non-participating and will give
you more insurance for the least money
than any other company. It numbers
amone its officers and directors such

President; C. J. Cooper, General Mana
ger and Treas, and J. A. Oats, Secre
tary, of Fayetteville; A. L. James, of
Laurinburg; Mark Morgan, of Laurel

We must commend the Opera House
management for the way in which they
have heated the theatre. It must be
admitted that a place with so many
doors and windows is bound to be cold

kept the house comfortable and no
blame can be attached to them for any
bad results from a cold house.

Mr. Oscar Draney purchased of B.
McFrater, a colored man and a carpn
ter 5,000 empty half pint whiskey
flasks, which McFrater had picked up
on the streets during the month of De
cember. McFrater is said to be a good
carpenter and can always command
job, but it seems that he must find the
picking up of bottles more profitable
than working at the trade. To take in
consideration the fact that four-fifth
of the bottles sold have the name of the
bottle blown into the glass, which
make them non saleable, only plain
bottles have a value, one can form
slight conception of the enormous
number of receptacles that are emptied
of their stimulating contents during
one month in this temperance city,
New Bern. There are people, however,
who claim that the prohibition law is
working like a charm.

POOR POTATO MARKET
The Outlook Anything But Encouraging For
. The Plantar. .-.
According to reports published in a
Norfolk paper the prospect for a large
shipment of early potatoes to northern
markets from eastern North Carolina
are not encouraging. The planters
I claim that their experience for the last
two years has shown them that there
is not enough money to go into any
extensive shipping. ' - ,
It is said by some dealers who are in
a position to know that the crop will
j be loss than 50 percent that of former
; years. Railroads and steamboat lines
which have derived a large source of
revenue for hauling this product will
be affected by this decision of the f aim
era as are the farmers themselves, and
as far as can be see 'i row there are
scarcely any sign of better prices this
this year. It ia possible that the cur
tailment planned by the planters and
the consequent l'ghteuing of freight
receipts will have its effect in getting
i a better market for potatoes.
