The daughter expecting her father's viait was at the depot Saturday when the A.

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 ternoon when his daughter miraculous. ly saw and rescued him from certain exposure and starvation which would have soon claimed him.

YEAH HEAR 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 reads: "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 mestic rejoicing. The Day of Atonement or Yom Kip pur, wbicn - marks the culminating 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. It is kept too as a fast. Services will be held at the . syna gogue Friday evening at 8 o'clock ai.d Saturday morning at 10 o'chsk, Rv H. A.

J. S. RECLAMING DIS MAL SWAMP Hundreds of Acres Heretofore Worthless Laud Ready For Cultivation. Norfolk. Sept! ' 19 -jThe 'work of re claiming liundrt 1b of acres of what was formerly valuele w swamp land and con veying it into fertile agricultural acre 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 is done. 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 ers have to come in, but otherwise thora is nothing compulsory about the law. - Bedroom Suits. in cheap plain oak just receive 1 a car, they are well made and look good, price $18 (Ml, $20 00, $22.50 and $25.00, extra dre ser at 16.50, $7 51 and $9.00.

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 grateful .. 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 1911 general 'assembly.

"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 shipment. 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.
