Postofflce Makes Good Showing,"
Postmaster Basnight 'has completed
his report of the receipts of the New

report is of most interesting nature. It
hows that there has been steady In
crease in the bjsiness of te local pos'
offlci fnr the mmth of January 1911,
over the same period for the proceeding
year. InJanuirv 1910 thcreceipta at
the New Bern Postofflce amounted to

the same month during 1910, of $343.39.
The first quarter of. every year, com
posed of the months of January. Feb

iod in the business of the local office,
Tbe fact that January, the first portion
of the quarter, has already gone so far
ahead of , the same month last year,
augurs well for a record breaking per

That Taft Expects It. Cannon
is Believed to Know.
Washington, Feb 3-Speculatfon on
an extra session ha taken torn with
the boosters working on three direct
lines of argument which they asserted,
supported the movement,
First and foremost was the action of
President Taft in cancell ng his engage

in March on account of "anticipaed
pressure of business." Extra session
advocates declared that the President
would have no "pre88U,'e; of business"
after Mareh 4, unless he contemplated
calling an extra session.
Speaker Cannon's declaration that
there will be no action orrthe Canadian
reciprocity agreement this session fur
nished another angle for extra session
The declaration of Senator Brown in
tre .Senate that unless the Lorimer
rase, the Sulloway Pension1 bill, the
popular election of Senators and the
.Tariff Board bill are acted on by that
body an extra ""session will be fore d,

Though no official touch has been giv

Southorn would like to come here and
the business men woufd welcome. The
schedule to Morfolk over that road beats
them nil in some points, and it would
be quite as good from this point as
from sny other. The talk of te Sea

at VV ilson late yesterday afternoon was

George Mumford was killed and Chief
of Police Glover lies in the hospital at
the point of death. 1 - . .
..The shooting was done by a negro

SPHERICITY OF THE EARTH.
"Parallax" Bet Against It, and He Lest
' His Wager.
The Htralghtest canal In the world Is
' In England and runs from Erlth, in
Cambridgeshire, ' to Denvers Sluice,
twenty-two miles away. It was here
that years ago a decisive experiment
was conducted to prove the sphericity
of the earth. At that time, says "Hlgh
wavs and Byways In Cambridgeshire;"
a deluded gentleman, who called him
self "Parallax," was obsessed with the
notion that the globe was a fiat disk
and used to go lecturing with great
vlj,'or on the subject. After these lec
tures he Invited questions, none of
which was uble to shake his belief.
. When nsUed, for example, "Why does
the hull of a ship disappear below tbe
horizon while the masts remain vis
ible?" he would answer, "Because the
lowest stratum of air Is the densest
mid therefore soonest conceals object?
seen through It." Finally he showed
Ids whole hearted licllef In his absurd
views by laying a heavy wager that no
one would disprove them. The stakes
were deposited In the hunds of judges,
and the trial, under agreed conditions,
took place upon the New river, as part
of the eannl Is called. Three boats
were moored three miles apart, each
proviilud with a erosstree of : equal
height. If the earth was spherical the
control cross would appear above tbe
other to nn observer looking through
a telescope leveled from the erosstree
of the boat nt either end; If It'was flat
he would see both the other erosstree
as one. "Parallax" declared that he
did see them so, but the Judges unani
mously decided against him, and the
poor man lost his money.

Haw Scientific Methods Raised the
Standard of a Day's Work,
There' are now eminent consulting
piiiriiieci'R who are engaged by Indus
trial heads to study their establish
inents from top to bottom with a view
to finding by scientific study the niet&-
oils of working, accounting and nan
dllng bilxir which will Improve on the
old traditional habits. Some extraorai
narv results have been attained. What
scientific management means is ad
inliahlv illustrated by the story ot
bricklaying, ns told by sa expert.
Ordinarily a brick mason makes
eighteen dlfTereut sets of motions In
laving n single brick. He bends over.
In the tirst nluce, to pick up one brick.
and In lifting it hajlfts ten pounds of
brick and about a hundred pounds of
brick mason the upper part of his
own body. In laying 1,000 bricks In a
day's wnik he lifts 100,000 pounds of
brick mnHon. This wss an obvious
waste, of labor. So a common laborer
was hired to put the bricks where the
masons would not have to stoop for
them.' Another thing is that when a
mason picks up a handmade, brick
whlehMs alwn'ys a little thicker at one
side than on the other, be tosses the
brick un. turning It over until his
J touch tells him which side is the top
( before, he puts It In place In the walL
The cure for this was to have all tbe
bricks piled top up. before they were
brought to the masons. Then, further,
every one has seen the mason top his
l,rlrlr IM-snil Hmp t 0ftl it ItltO the
i nfortar more waote of time. Tbe cure
...' -' -
was to 'make tbe mortar thinner, so
that tho wolstbt of the brick would set
tle it Into tbe right position. This was
scientific management "motion study."
It raised the day's work for the"aver-
nge brick mason from 1,000 up to 2,700
bricks a-dny and in Individual cases to
much higher figures. The mason made
only six motions jvnero he used to
mnke eighteen. American Review of

I. W. Mattocks Dead.
Mr, Ed, W. Mattocks, of Swansboro,
Onslow eounty, N. C., died at his home
on Jan. 23d, 1911. He was a familiar
figure on the streets, being one of the
oldest citizens of the town, he has been
confined to his home for the past few
years, his health being very feeble,
still he was able to be up and around at
times, he was not confined to his room
more than aWek before Ms death. He
was faithful to attend to his. church du
ties as long as he was able, and at one
time was an active member. He leaves
a widow and one son and many rela
cives. We shall miss him, for he had a
habit for years of going to our home to
get the day's papers, and we can hear
his slow, easy step coming in to get the
news. He was a great reader, and al
though his health failed, him eyesight
was comparatively good,, and this ws&
a great comfort to him in his old age.
kMay God eomfort the bereaved widow
in her lonely hours, and may the thought
that she did what she could to make
him comfortable in his old age be a con
eolation to her. We know he is at rest
