An Up-to-Datt Wish House. .
Hie need of a good first class laundry
in New Bern is met in the new con
cern just established by Mr. Charles
T. Cook, in one of the buildings on the
old fair grounds on the macadamized
road. The place is singularly good
one for that kind of business, and noth-
ing is left undone to nuke it the best
laundry in the State. -:
The equipment consists of machinery
such as is found in the best laundries in
the United States. It is all made by
the Wilson Laundry Machinery Co., at
Columbia. Pa. There are nineteen
pices for the perfecting of the work.
Washing machines, starchers, bosom
ironers. collar and cuff ironers and
shapers, hydraulic presses, steam dry
ing cabinets and everything requisite
for rapid and satisfactory work will be
found there. Fastidious people will be
pleased with the work for It will be
done as well aa it is, possible to do.
The work by hand has been reduced to
the minimum but Mr. Cook has enough
employes to turn the work off quickly
when requested to do so. v '
v Mr. J. E. Scott has been engaged as
solicitor and he will call for work in
any part of the city, and will also de
liver it, thus relieving house holders of
a deal of the trouble and anxiety. Any i
who desire it may see the machinery in
operation any day. They will undoubt
edly be interested in the plant.
Mr. Bruner is Here.
' Mr. T. K. Bruner of the State Agri
cultural Department, is in the city,
looking for such objects, mostly views
that he can take of fish, oysters or
truck, which will go into an exhibit for
North Carolina which is proposed by
Governor Glenn to be sent in a special
car, which will visit the New England
Fairs next fall, so that the people in
that section may know of North Caro
lina resources, and be attracted to
invest or move to this State.
No one knows better than Mr. Bruner
What to secure for this exhibit, and his
visit to this section is one which is go
ing to be of great value in showing
what Eastern Carolina can produce in
those three great resources, truck, oys
ters and fish.

Dear Sirs; You understand chemis

Devoe lead-and-zinc that's the name
of our paint that takes fewer gallons
than mixed paint and wears twice as
long as lead-and-oil is made of whiter
iead, white-zinc, its color, turpentine
dryer, and linseed oil.
If any chemist finds any adultera
tion in this paint we'll pay his bill and
It's nobody's business what we put
in our paint, of course; but we want it
known. For lead-and-zinc and linseed
oil, ground together by machinery, are
the stuff to paint with: and lead-and-

scribes the best paint in the world; and
that word is Devoe.

ST. STEPHENS CHURCH.
Fins Building Dedicated at MorthMd City
for the A. M. E. Zlos DeaomlMtfoa.
Few have been the incidents in color
ed church affairs that have created such
interest among the race than has the
construction of St Stephens A. M. E
Zion church at Morehead City, thededi
cation of which took place last Sunday.
It was an event that will be cherished
for a time in the minds and hearts of
those who were spectators as well
those who had an active interest in the
church. - . '.-
We desire to acknowledge with grati
tude the assistance of th white people
of Morehead and the untiring efforts of
the pastor Rev. J. S. Bell. Perhaps if
we should speak of the latter as "Rail
road Jake" for he has driven railroad
spikea from one end of the county to
the other. He is widely acquainted in
that section ani highly respected by all
who know him. . ' ,
At half past two o'clock Sunday a
very solemn and impressive' Bight was
that presented in the church in the
large audi wee gathered for the first
time. There were many white people
present for they have taken a lively
interest in the church. , There "were
400 people in the audience. The gal
lery was reserved for the white people
and the members and officials occupied
the body pews. Representatives from
Kington, New Bern and many other
places were there. ' : ,
The services were opened witn sing
ing by the choir which was composed of
young men led by Prof. Starkey, leader
of the choir at Clinton A. M. E. Zion
Chapel at New Bern. The music was
grand and reflected great credit on the
conductor and the choir. Prof. Starkey
also presided at the organ whicn was
Rev. J. S. Bell introduced the Bpeak

Peters church at New Bern. He spoke

reign over this great people." The dis
course was attentively listened to and
The congregation at night was large.

Another Old Veteran Gone
Bayboro Sentinel '
On the 31st of January at half past
7 o'clock James O. Baxter Sr, of Stone
wall passed on the other shore and rests
beneath the shade of the trees. Mr.
Baxter was in his 76 year of age, one
of the oldest citizens in the county,
He came to this, then to Craven county
from Currituck countypriorjto theJCivil
War, and when the war came on he was
one of the first respond to his coun
trys call and enlisted in CoLH. T. Gui
on's, company, afterwadrs company P.
in the 10th Regiment N. , u. Troops
Heavy Artillery and was staioned at
Fort Macon, and was in the fort dnring
the seica until the crarrisnn wna fnrcod
to surrender. - He enlisted a private and
by merit alone won a lieutenancy in his
company after Johnson surrendered at
Greensboro his command was paroled
at Stantonsburg, Wilson county, from
there he came home and engaged in farm
ing and a few years afterward became
a clerk and book-keeper for Fpwler &
Bro., merchants in Stonewall where he
remained with this firm until a few
years ago over a quarter of a century.
He was the first Democratic candidate
for Sheriff of Pamlico county and was
defeated by the small plurality of 16
VJtes, there being an independent denv
o:rat in the field who received 81 dem
ocratic votes, tie made a vigorous
campaign and though defeated he whs
always loyal to the party and the prin
ciples of Jefferson and Jackson in deed
an adherent to those principles. He filled
the 'office of Justice )f Peace for more
than a quarter of a century with credit
to mmsell and to his county. In all
things he was an upright honest Chris-
ian gentleman, whose life isworthly of
mitation. Asa soldier and a citizen was
always at his post of duty, and wh n
tne nnai summons came he was pre
pared to answer and accept the call
without a murmur, well assured that he
would receive his just reward of a life
well spent, in the service of his Go J,
his country and his fellow man. Me
leaves behind a widow, his second wife,
four sons and three daughters and

Information Solicited from Merchant and
Others Handling Merchandise by
In the early part of each year circu
lars are sent out from the U. S. Engi
neer Office at Wilmington, or from the
sub-office at New Bern, requesting o.
parties who have handled any com
merce on any of the navigable waters
of the State to report the character and
quantity of such commerce. -'
We are informed that a number of
the parties to whom such circulars were
sent this year have not yet replied and
that the figures Bent in by some other
parties are such as to indicate that the
importance of theso figures is not fully
understood. Some few parties even
take the ground that the business hand
led by them is their own affair and that
the government has' no right to pry
into their business. "'
If the importance of these statistics
were fully understood, these views would
quickly disappear and all paities inter
ested in the improvemei t of the rivers
and harbors of the State would do all in
their power to assist by submitting a
complete and accurate statement cf
their shipments. ' V
These statistics are of vital impor
tance, because when Congress is asked
to appropriate money.for the improve
ment of any stream or harbor, one of
the first questions asked is "Ho much
commerce would be benefited by such
improvement?" y-, ' -i'
: In fact the appropriation of money
for the improvement of a waterway or
harbor should depend on only three
things. First, the cost; second, the
cost of maintenance, and thL-d, the
amount of commerce to be benefited.
And the amount of commerce is judged
by the reports submitted every year by
the U. S. Engineer office. Of course,
the imports and exports can be learned
from the Custom House reports, but
the domestic commerce can be learned
only from the Engineer reports.
No one should conclude from this that
the thing to do is to make a good show
ing regardless of accuracy. This ten
dency is often displayed and, aside from
the fact that it is dishonest, or really
does more harm than good. . The only
safe course is for every man to see that
makes a complete and accurate re
port of the business he handles over tha
watercourse in question. ' Of course,
absolute accuracy is often impractica
ble, for unfortunately many shippers do
not keep any record of the materials
shipped or received, and many vessel
owners keep no record of the (materials
transported. But, even in these cases,
moderately accurate estimate can be
made if the matter is given enough
thought and attention. A farmer often
keeps no record of the number of
pounds of cotton he raises, but he can
generally estimate it with fair accu
racy. And certainly it would be poor
policy for him to report that he had
produced five hundred or a thousand
when everybody knows he produced
less than a hundred, i
Our readers are urged to take an ac- '
tive interest in this matter, so that the
annual commercial statistics may be ac
tual accurate and reliable statements,
not merely rough guesses. ,
All parties who have not received
blanks on which to report their statis
tics can get them by writing to the U.
S. Engineer Office, New Bern, N. C.

Pneumonia la a Dangtroua Disease And
Each Case Should be Carefully Guarded
From Further Infection.
It is an acute infecteous, contageous,
systemic disease as diptheria, measles,
etc , with characteristic local diseases
of the lungs. It is caused by a micro
organism, the pneumonia which enters
the system" through the respiratory
tract and blood current and produces a
general disease with local manifesta
tions. ' Pneumonia destroys more lives
than any known disease. In the United
States alone according to reliablle stat
istics one person falls a victi.n to this
malady every five (5) minutes and it is
increasing in fatality and prevalence
every yeRr, during the last decade it
has increased consump i n 5 per cent
while tuberculide has dt creased 40 per
cent y: 'y ;V
Considering the ravages this malady
is working among nil classes and es
pecially right now when the whole coun
try is permeated with it, and in our own
immediate tec tion, we are having in
certain localities, almost an epidemic,
I have thought, it would be of interet t
as well as benefiicial to the public, to
know something of the nature of this
disease in as concise and clear way as
space will allow. -
The germ which is in the atmosphere
isinhaled into the lungs, it enters' the
blood, current by the bronchial arteries
which alone furnish nutriment to the
lungs and it follows the current until
it reaches the smaller vessels, " the
capillaries where it becomes lodged or
clogs the capillary entirely, it then be
comes an irritant and the congestion
and general inflammation sets in caus
ing the consolidation of the lung tif
sue..,: ..,y : . ;' "
As the inflammation progresses in
violence according to the pneumococi
(germs) these germs eliminate or manu
facture a toxin or poison that is absorb
ed by the general circulation producing
speis denoted chills, fever and all symp
toms of toxaemic poisoning. " y
There are several varieties of pneu
monia and they require different modes
of treatment ; But the main point I
wish to emphasize is prophylapsor pre
vention. A patient with this disease
should, as soon as suspected, be insolat
ed and the room well ventilated and
kept at a uniform temperature or 68 or
72 degrees and a clean cloth .should be
used to expectorate in and burned as
soon as used, or a cuspidor furnished
prrtially filled with an antiseptic solu
tion as carbolic acid, for . maldehyde tr
chloride of mercury. Everything of no
special use rugs, pictures, curtains,
chairs should be removed from the
room. The patient should be kept as
comfortable as possible and not allowed
to lie in one position too long, as that
tends to increase the congestion of the
lungs. The mouth should be frequent
ly .rinsed with an anti-septic solu
. There should be no visiting of the pa
tient for this disease can be carried in
the clothing, as I have recently had
demonstrated clearly to my mind. Only
a few miles from this city a young man
was taken suddenly ill with pneumonia,
and, as is the custom especially in the
county a good many of his friends came
to sit ;up with him and from that case
within a radius of one mile I had eight
cases of pneumonia that could be traced
directly to the first case.
.. The treatment of pneumonia varies
according to the variety or part Of the
lung affected and the amount of toxin
absorbed in the system, but I will rot
go Into the details for want of space
but will only mention the coal , tar de
rivatives to condemn them. If the
temperature does not go above 102 de
grees, the patient can take care of her
self but should it go above 102 or as
high as 105 degrees the cold pack to
the chest is decidedly the best remedy
to decrease the temperature, as it also
stimulates the patient and soothes the
whole nervous system. '
The object of the treatment is to coun
teract the toxine poisoning in the blood
and the system should be well support
ed with nourishment and stimulants
and I would say that I have found
strychnine to be a very satisfactory
stimulant V '; .
In the last year or two a pneumococ
cus scrum has been discovered which
has not been thoroughly satisfactory.
But I do not think far distant v hen as
in diptheria and tetanus we will have a
serum treatment that will yield the
same results. ,
Death from pneumonia is due to the
direct cause of pncumococcus activity,
and toxins are not to mechanical ob
structions as it was thought to be under
the old theory of phlogoais or inflamma
tion. This is an important fact as it
contradicts a theory which has been
long held in regard to treatment which
is dantrous and fallacious. ,
I would advise all persons taken sud
denly ill with pain inside, with chill and
cough and fever, to consult their phy
sician at the curliest moment and keep
in mind all the time pneumonia is -contagious
nnl in many cases of the dis
ease it apparently seems cured, only a
slight cough remaining. It is often
the beginning of tuberculosis."
The object of this article is simply to
in press upon the public generally the
dimger of this disease and the import
ance of prrphjla) s.
