Miraculously Saved From Death.
Last Saturdaj', September 16 h, Mr,
Ben Cason an elderly gentleman livinp
in Pamlico county, - left his home for
Wilmington, N. C, where bis daughter
Miss Alif Cason teaches achool. The
daughter expecting her father's viait
was at the depot Saturday when the
A. C, L. train arrived from New Bern,
but no father appeased on the train.
; Miss Cason was uneasy over the ai u
ation, knowing her father had left for
the purpose of visiting ber.and Sunday,
becoming alarmed, took the A. C. L,
train for New Bern. ; Sitting in the
train and looking out of the window
when passing near North East, a small
'tatiun, Miss Csson was startled by
seeing her father quietly sitting on a
log in the woods. Jumping up, Miss
Cason called the attention of a gentle
man on the train who informed the con
ductor, the train was stopped and back
ed up until the place was reached
vhore the elderly Mr. Cason was found
still sitting on the log very much wear
ied and hungry, The old gentleman
was taken on the train where food and
timulants were given him, He was
taken' back to his home, in Pamlico
county, .' .;' .-v..'
It seems that on his trip Saturday
Mr. Cason must have alighted from the
train at North East without any clear
notion of why he did so and wandered
about in that vicinity until Sunday af

exposure and starvation which would
have soon claimed him.

Bosh Ilashanah Falls on Saturday
Sept. 23d. 'Will 'be Observed
. by Hebrews in This City.
Orthodox Hebrews the world ovnr
are looking forward to the present week
for Rosh Hashanah falltt this year on
Saturday, Sept, 23d. It will bo observ
ed as a holiday from the evening of
Friday until sundown Saturday even
ing. The orthodox Hebrew observes
also the so-called "second day." which
is Sept. 24th. This is one of the most
solemn of all the holidays in the He
brew calendar. It will record the pass
ing of the Jewish year 5672.
Rosh Hashanah touches the hearts of
the children of Israel as does no other
of the festivals and holidays. It is
known as the day of the blowing of the
trumpets, which is also the seventh new
moon of the Hebrew calendar. The
blowing of the trumpet is a reminder
to the Israelites that a new period of
-time has commenced. It is a day of me
morial when Isreal feels himself held
by God in romembranc.
The Biblical basis for thn observance
of the first day of Tishri an a Now
Year's day and the most solemn d:iv of
the Jewish calendar next to Ym Kip
pur or the Day of Atonement, is found
in the reference to Zikkaron ("memo
rial day") in Leviticus xxii, 24. which
"In the seventh mon'h, in the first
day of the month, shall yo huv a Sab
bath, a memorial of blowing of trum
pets, a holy convocation."
Ezra also refers to the dny as one
"holy to the Lord," (Nehomiah viii, 9.)
Not a mere day of rejoicin, like the
secular New Year, is this ltish Hash
annh. It is a day of memorial or a dny
remembrance, reminding ' the Jew of
the duty of self examination and self-
udgment. To arouse the conscience
of this solemn task the ceremony of
sounding the shofar or ram's horn.
furnv an important feature of ' tha. Bar-J
vice. Among the orthodox J jws at
tainment of this object is also sought
by sotting aside a few days before the
New Year's day for tho recital in the
synagogue, of penitential prayers called
Selihot. This continues until the even
ing (chanted in the minor key) before
dawn in the ilimly lit houses of wor
ship, sound the note of gric and con
trition for the sins of the past year.
After tha silemn services on the eve-
ning of Friday and the morning of Sat
urday, 'the Hebrew greeting is heard on
all sides, signifying; "A good year"
or "Mayest thou be inscribed (in the
Book of Life) for a good year." In lut
ter years a custom hai appeared ol
sending to friends New Ytan greeting
cards of various designs, colors and in
scriptions. When tha earnest devo
tions of the day are dono, the festival
is made an occasion of social and do
The Day of Atonement or Yom Kip

point of the Hebrew penitential season
is distinguished by the ab-ilent of food
and by an elaborate ceremonial,' The
purpose of the Day of Atonement is
clearly indicated by its name. ' It is in
tended to complete an l crown the peni
tential season,, begun on the first day
of Tishri (New Year) by finally recon
ciling the soul with the Almighty. The
dsy is spent in prayer and meditation.

age is just wm nearing completion in
the Muyock drainage district on the
North Carolina border of the Dismal
Swamp. Tnis work was inaugurated
under (he new drainage laws of the
State of North Carolina, after which
Virginia has pattered, and with govern
ment aid the undertaking has proven
highly successful. . It will mean hun
dreds of thousnuds of dollars to the
owners of this one time useless land
with the th orginal cost of reclamation
paid off, it ia estimated, by the crops
of the first three years after the work
Experiments already made have
shown that the reclaimed land will y'eld
better cor n that that ever before pro
duced in the State, and so much pleased
are the land owners of ...the districts
where reclamation was inaugurated
that others are acting quickly with the
view to reclama'i m of all swamp land
in Eastorn Norte Carolina, With dra.n
age district Inw cass- d by the last Leg
islature of Virginia . the owners of
swamp land in this State have likewise
started a movement for reclamation and
already the problems are being worked
out in several parts of the State, nota
bly in lower Norfolk county, ,
Reclamation is attained by the for
mation of districts upon two-thirds of
fie property owners agreeing to neces
sary taxation to cover the expense of
lr edging canals for the carrying off of
the water into neighbi ring streams and
thenco into river flowing into largei
bodies of water, thus leaving the ooe-
tine swampy binds high and dry ready
for cultivation. The property ownen
agreed .t -oseihA, pic5Ua f torn their
first crops to pay off the drainage bonds
and when the indebtedness has been
completely wiped out the land is free
a. ain unto the owners and the drainage
district is dissolved. The government
sends its engineers snd drainage 'ex
perts to assist wherever drainage dis
tricts are started, no charge for Fed
eral ai l being made whatever. If two-
thirds of the property owners of any
district vote for drainage then the oth

V a n-c-e-b-o-r-o! - :
Monday, Sept, 18ih. was the climax
of the strenuous fight for thelocatlonof
the Farm-Life School in Craven coun
ty. Thoso who have diroctlyintorest-
ed in the fight realize most keenly
the struggle they bave gone through
for what they thought to be the beat
public institution iu the county. ' For
the very reason that the struggle for
the location of the school has been so
intense and that tho vote- for the spe
cial bond lesue was so heartily endorsed
locally, thioughout the county, is suf
ficient evidence that the stveral town
ships are thoroughly awake to their
tnterests in education. But since there
is but one such Farm-Life' School for
each county, it needs must have its lo
cation in ono community of the county
as opposed to any other. Vanceboro is
the one fortunate community. It is
therefore with a deep sense of grati
tude and appreciation that the citizens
of Vanceboro turn to their neighbors of
the other townships of the eounty for
this special public favor. .
Not only does she express thanks to
the county and to her lew fortunate sis
ter townships but also to every one
who has aided or in any way been in
strumental in securing the location of
the school at this place.
Firut, the citizens of Vanceboro fee)
very deeply and sensibly, their indebted
ncssto the p30ple of the immediate
and surrounding communities for the
loyalty thuy have shown and the public
spirited zeal which they have manifest
ed from at art to finish in the Farm
Li fe School movement many have
given gifts and pledged their names to
antes at great sacrifices. Practically .
every one has given freely and liberal
ly according to his means. Hardly a
single man escaped who did not vote
for the special bond issue. : . ; ';"!;
Lastly, to the Board of Trustees and
advisors, the people of Vanceboro wish
to express their most hearty apprecia
tion for the favor they bava cohferred
and the honor they have done by plac
ing their confidence in the' trustworthi
ness of her poeple. v ; :' ; .
For truly it is an honor as well as a
ftvor to be entrusted with the care of
the best public school in the county.
To all the contributors supporters of
the above favors, Vanceboro is truly
Whatever may be tha attitude of
others, Vanceboro has no disposition to
boast over her recent success. V,
She begins her work in the direction
of the Farm-Life School in ths spirit of
ho niblt ness and the desire to be of
genuine service to the entire county.; -
With this spirit an earnest appeal ia
made to every community of tha coun
ty for its earnest support and patron
age, both now and when the school will
be thoroughly equipped for service.
It is this sort of co-operation that the
people feel tie need snd in ia this sort
that they are sure that they will get. -
In conclusion, the people at large In
Craven county snnuld congratulate
themselves on b ing the first in the
Slate, 100 counties to secure a Farm-
Life School under the special aot ot tht

For 8 Time.
Greensboro, Sept. 20th. The crop of
1910-11 ia now a matter of history.
"We point with pride" t the wonder
ful prices it brought while' the Amer
ican Manufacturer "views with alarm"
tha result. '
From the manufacturers standpoint
it was the moat disastrous and unsatis
factory on record. For two years ha
has had to contend with, cotton, at
average price ol nearly nfleen cem
and in order to keep hia help partly em
ployed and hia organization intact, ha
has made cotton into fabric that in
most cases failed to fetch a new dollar
to replaea the old one, to aay nothing
of interest o investment or deprecia
tion of machinery.
At the end of two short crops aggre
gating 23 million tales, we find cotton
selling at 11 1 rents and cotton goods on
a basis that will not j ay more than fair '
returns to the mills. We find no fam
ine for either cotton or cotton goods.
Does this situation si atain those who
at the risk f being called traitors
dared to aay that prices were artificial
andtaohigh? I think itdoef.
The new crop is beginning to move
in and the receipts are large. The mills
of the world are gradually starting up
and there is an active demand for quick
The size of tho erop will be a matter
of controversy for a long time, but .
from present prospects it looka ample
In regard to consumptive needs, it ia
rather early to aay more than I am
hopeful but not optimistic. .
We see nothing to cause spinners to
be anxious about supplies, .
For the time being the tendency ia
bearish and pricea are likely to decline
further. One extreme follows another
and inasmuch as pr.ices for two years
have most of tha lime -been . unreason-'
ably high. ' the pendulum may now
swing In the opposite direction. The
best argument that I see against lower
prices ia the fact that an enormous de
cline has already taken pla-;e.
