READY MONEY
Is one of the greatest aids to success that a farmer can
have. ' ' . .
If he can buy for cash he saves money by so doing,
- If he has money in the bank he can often use it to great
advantage to pick up some cash bargain in land or stock or
machinery that will greatly increase hia profit.
:" A checking account in this bank will help YOU. Why not
have it.

Statement of November Sales
Shows Them to be $3,000
Larger Than the Year
1905.
Special Correspondence.
Raleigh, Dec. 6. The Raleigh dis
pensary continues to be a money-maker
and is regarded by a great many per
sons as the best solution of the whiskey
question. The sales during November
were $3,000 more than they were in
November 1905. It must be remem
bered that half at least, of the whiskey
sold is outside of this county, and the
extension of prohibition territory in
creases the number of buyers I ere. Of
course no liquor U shipp hI awiy, it all
has to be taken. Chatham, Johnston,
Harnett, Nanh, and Franklin counties
and part of Durham, get their whiskey
here. This makes it very easy to under
stand the increase in sales.

is rapidly drawing to a close and a ver

ing address to the jury that the murder
of Grace Brown was not the only crime
nor was it the worst one of which he
was guilty The first led to the com

Washington, Dec 4 In his message
to Congress President Roosevelt touch

extremely fair to the Southern people,
He scores unmercifully corporations
that seek combinations, - judges and
campaign contributions. He advocates
income and inheritance taxes and wants
more power for the Interstate Com
merce Commission, but is silent on the
Panama canal and tariff.
Close attention was paid to the read'
ing of the message and many times
there was an audible expression of ap
proval at the suggestions. Champ
Clark of Missouri says that the Presi

tax were taken from the Democratic
platform. '
Washington, Dec 4 As a counter

Raleigh, Dec 6 Governor Glenn has

Raleigh, Dec. 5. Governor Glenn, by
special invitation addressed the board
of agriculture on immigration today.
He complimented highly the exhibit
made at Boston and said he hoped the
board would consider in the broadest
way the whole question of securing the
best class of immigrants. Speaking of
state finances he said if taxation were
made equal in various counties there
would be plenty of founds for every pur
pose, but forty-fou counties receive
more from the State than they paid in,
one of these is Cumberland which re
ceived $4,000 more than it paid in. In
some counties property valued at only
forty per cent of real value, in others
eighty per cent.

THE RIVERS AND
HARBORS CONGRESS.
An Organization That Meets
in Washington Today to
t Discuss the Country's
Deep Waterways.
(fpecial Correspondence.)
Raleigh, N. C., December 5th,
On Thursday the National Rivers and
Harbors Congress will be held at Wash
ington at the Arlington Hotel. It is
declared to be second in importance
only to the congress of the United
States. Major Edward J. Hale of
Fayetteville is a member of the ex
ecutive committee from North Carolina
The United States, Major Hale says,
has 43,199 of navigable water-oajs
while Holland, France and Belgium
have only 7,230 miles. The total ex
pended in river and harbor appropria
tions in this country $4,470,0n0,000 while
in Holland,' France, and Belgium the
total expenditures aggregate $2, 775
OuO.000. Few people have an idea how
cheap water transportation is. The
cost on railroads per ton mile is in
Texas 8 and one half mills and the
average on al' the railroads in the
country is 8 and four fifth mills, while
on the Ohio River the cost is less than
a third of a mill, on the great Lakes
nine tenths of a mill, on the lower
Mississippi one mill and on the Erie
Canal a little over half a mill.
These figures, as Major Hale says,
are simply astonishing. The river and
harbor bill, he declares can no longer
be called a "Pork barrel" as it is
about the only great appropriation
which is not of that type. He says that
subject has been acute with North
Carolina people in the recent past, the
scientific treatment of the upper Cape
Fear River and of other great enter
prises throughout the country based on
the development of traffic by waterway
improvements which are commerc'ally
sound giving great impetus to a move
ment which he BayB the unsatisfactory
railway system rendered public opinion
ripe for.

Greensboro, Dec 5 The expected and
the predicted happened in the Federal
court yesterday when District Attorney
Hollons prayer for judgment on G. W.
Samuel, A. S Patterson, R. H. Har
dir, L. E. Davis and other revenue of
ficers convicted of violating revenue
law, and distillers in complicity there
with was ordered continued by Judge
Boyd and the cases all go over until a
pecial term of court, called to meet in
Greensboro, the second Monday in Jan
uary Judge Boyd also announced that
at that term the case of Simmons
Hardware Company against R. H. Har
din and L. E. Davis would be tried.
This is a proceeding in bankruptcy, in
which he involved the defendants visi
ble possessions, and Judge Boyd said it
would not be fair to them to sentence
them before that trial was had. The
special term is also called to complete
trial of indictments against revenue of
ficers not yet tried two of them being
W Hasty and Starky Hare, There
is also a bill of indictment to be tried in
which all the officers heretofore con
victed, and a great many of the die
tillers are involved, under an omnibus
charge of geneal conspiracy to defraud
the government. If the court does,
what is mapped out for it, it will last
from January to July. The cases
though will never be tried again, and
none of the defendants will ever wear
stripes.
At the regular monthly session of the
Greensboro ministerial association yes
terday, Rev W. H. McMasters, secre
tary of thn American Sabbath Associa
tion, was present and spoke of the good
results that might be had from a Sab

The only scientific and common sense
way to treat catarrh of the nose and

Ordinary Btomach dosing is worse
than useless. Taking medicine into I he

its medicated, healing air penetrates to
the most remote parts of the nose,

heals any irritation in the mucous mem

catarrh is shown by the guarantee he
gives with every Hyomei outfit that the

"HIGHLY RECOMMENDS
CUTICURA SOAP"
"I had been troubled with a break
ing out on my face and arms for almost
a year and had the services of several
physicians, but they didn't seem to do
any good. Some time ago one of my
friends recommended Cuticura to me.
I secured some, and after using it sev
eral months I was completely cured.
I can highly recommend Cuticura Soap
as being the very best complexion
Soap made. It creates a perfect com- -plexion,
leaving the skin soft, white,
and velvety. I now use Cuticura Soap
all the time and recommend its use to
my friends." Maud Loggins,

ANOTHER CURE
"I have used the Cuticura Medicinal
Toilet Soap for more than a year, and for
cleansing, beautifying, and purifying
the skin, it cannot be excelled. I have
been trying for a long time to get some-'
thing to take the pimples off my face,
and since using Cuticura Soap I find that
it is the very thing for diseases of the
skin." G.W.King,

of his son, Mr. George D. Gordner, aged
82 years. He was born in. Amberg,
Berk a county, Pennsylvania, Sept. 22,
1824 and lived in the north the greater
portion of his life but has been a resi-.
dent of New Bern for' some years.
Mr. Gordner was a man of considerable
inventive genius. He has had some suc
cessful and useful inventions in the line
of saw mills apparatus and other me
chanical appliances. Of late years he
had been studying on a new kind of
water power which promised much
and would have meant much in the pro
duction of power cheaply. This last dis
covery was almost the height of his
ambition although the devise whs never
completed so that practical operation '
could be positively assured.
