THE TROUBLE IS DOMESTIC

BEING GOOD ON THE INSTALL
Men seldom make good who try to
be good on the installment plan, says
the cynical paragrapher of the Chicago
News. A more optimistic view is that
men, every time they perform a worthy
deed, are so much the more apt to per
form another. I ike begelslike and a
generous act will usually be followed
by another and et another just as to do
an unbecoming thing makes it eisier
and more natural !o repeat the offence.
Works are by no means all-important
but we recall that some Wise man said
that they were the hemisphere the coun
terpart of which was faith. Being good
a little of the time is better than being
bad all the time.
WHY THEY STAND FOR IT
If Blease were an actcr or a patent
medicine proprietor, or the author of
a best seller, or any other individual
whose prosperity depended upon his
keeping in the public eye, we might un
derstand why he does it. liven then
we couldn't understand why the people
of South Carolina stand for it. Balti
The Sun is informed by Senator
Tillman that the people of South Caro.
lina stand for it because Blease has them
"bamboozled." Another thing that
perhaps the Sun has not tl. ought of is
this. The people in South Carolina
are the worst divided people in any Slate
in the union. The bleascites have cast
their lot with Blease and he can't do
anything disgusting enough to make
them desert his standard because they
have made up their minds to give not
one grain of comfort to those on the other
side of the fence.
But there are exceptions to all rules.
While we believe we have correctly
diagnosed the trouble with the great
majority of the Fleastites, we believe
that the next time the Governor comes
before the people there will be enough
of his erstwhile followers ready to de
sert him to make it certain that after
his present term of office South Carolina
will not be afflicted with him any more
except as a private citii.cn.
An interesting political rumor in
connect ion with the Senatorial berth
now being enjoyed by I.ce S. Overman
is that former Governor R. B. G'enn
will try to gel it'. Asked about it he said
hht" Other .day that he did not know
whether he was going to seek the honor
or not but if he decided to no so he w ould
make the best race that he could. He
could make a pretty good race. So
could the incumbent. If the two con
test for the plate the State will witness
another lively campaign.
HOW WE GET SORE THROAT
Dampness and dust and diphtheria,
and other germs, are the chief causes of
sore throat. Many people can develop
sore throat on short notice if they become
suddenly chilled, or get their feet
wet. Month breathing, coddling, living
in overcrowded and overheated rooms
are also excellent means of getting sore
throat. Close, hot stuffy, poorly venti
lated, moving picture show houses, the
atres, churches and halls also form excel
lent mediums of exchange for variou
sore throat infections, colds, lagrippe
etc. If you can't "catch" something
in such places occasionally you have
reasons for congratulations. Slate

A canvass of the Senate made Thurs
lay showed that sentiment in that bod
is against a general public reception
to Presidentelect Wilson on the night
of his inauguration. The Senate
right as of co::rse a bodyjof such learned
men might reasonably be expected
to be. What is the need of a reception?
Only a small number of people, compar?
ively speaking, could attend anyway
The overwhelming majority of the
American people will be about heir
daily, tasks on the day of Wilson's
nauguration. He will receive them and
hey him through the medium of hi:
inaugural address which will be pub
isiied far and near, and that will be
reception enough. Governor Wilson
wants as little pomp and pageantn-
connection with hta inauguration
as possible and ill that desire he will
have the approval of the great majority
of the American people.

Euphemia, Ohio. " Because of total
ignorance of how to care for myself
when verging into womanhood, and from
taking cold when going to school, I suf
fered from a displacement, and each
month I had severe pains and nausea
which always meant a lay-off from work
for' two to four days from the time I
was 16 years old.
' I went to Kansas to live with my sis
ter and while there a doctor told me of
the Pinkham remedies but I did not use
them then as my faith in patent medi
cines was limited. After my sister died
I came home to Ohio to live and that
has been my home for the last 18 years.
The Change of Life came when I was
47 years old and about this time, I saw
my physical condition plainly described
in one of your advertisements. Then I
began using Lydia E. Pinkham's Veg
etable Compound and I cannot tell you
or any one the relief it gave me in the
first three months. It put me right
where I need not lay off every month
and during the last 18 years I have not
paid out two dollars to a doctor, and have
been blest with excellent health for a wo
woman of my age and I can thank Lydia
E. Pinkham ' s Vegetable Compound for it
" Since the Change of Life is over I
have been a maternity nurse and being
wholly self-supporting I cannot over
estimate the value of good health. I
have now earned a comfortable little
home just by sewing and nursing since
I was 52 years old. fnave recommended
the Compound to many with good re
sults, as it is excellent to take before
and after childbirth." Miss Evelyn

Edi.or Th; J' tinal:
There is in New Bern at least one
real estate and insutam e man who tells
the truth. He will admit it. Indeed
he says so new and then, in black and
white. lruth is mighty and will pre

don't know who.
What? Why yes; of course I know
but I can't remember just at this mo
Well, as I said, this man gives vou
"the facts" about matters in his lin
at least a- many of 'em as it's iood for
you to know and if a man will do that
he is not likely to lie about a little thinp
like a eat. Is he? No. Of course not.
W ell, I'm not mentioning any names
you know, (except that of thecal, which
would scarcely identify the owner), but
the cat s name is Bouncer a name
which would stem to indicate an indi
vidual of the sterner sex. Such may
have been the family's i lea until it was
rudtlv shattered bv the arrival of a
litter of Kittens, and thereby hangs a

would call him) and 1 am certain that

when her progeny had ceased to draw
nourishment from the maternal fount
and were able to digest more substan

much after the manner of her feline
ancestresses since the original pair left
the welcome shelter of the ark. But

Docs she simply catch and kill a rat,

That, in h-;r opinion, is primitive an!
unsanatory. No. Placing the dead rat
on its back and firmly holding it by the
head with one paw, she deftly slits tne
skin fron. chin to tail with the other,
and then with a movement so quick a
to be imperceptible (even to her owner)
removes the skin and bowels and then,
and not till then, permits her hungry
kittens to partake. While they are
feasting, "Bouncer" carefully places the
hide on one of the pickets of a fence in
the back yard, along with those pre
viously acquired. In the course of the
fall and early winter this collection of
rat-skins, thoroughly cured, is eagerly
snapped up by a well-known buyer for

THE PROBLEM OF THE REVOL
VER From far away London by way of the
New Yofk World, co pying from the
London Times, we get the following
most illuminating discussion of the re
volver: "People shoot themselves in n oments
of depression, or other people in mo
ments of passion, or themselves and
others by accident, simply because
pistols are at hand. They are bought
with no definite intention, but because
there is a certain fascination about hav
ing something potent and deadly, a
sense of power which flatters a very
general instinct. Or tjiey are bought
because other people have them, ant'
both boys and men like to be in tht
fashion and to be as well equipped as
their neighbor. From a variety of
motives, often vague, often silly, but
not necessarily sinister, people become
the possessors of such things. Then,
"how oft the means to do ill-deeds mikes
ill-deeds done!" For a man depressed
by misfortune or the reaction from al
coholic stimulation the pistol becomes
an obsession. He broods over it, he
toys with it, and one day he uses it
upon himself just because it is there.
Another uses it to settle some trivial
dispute just because it is ready to his

which assiduously schedules poisons

We confess that we don't know what
kind of law ought to obtain in reference
to the revolver. Present laws on the
subject are certainly not having the
desired effect. We arc not so sure but
that a law making it a crminal offence
to ow n a revolver would be justified
by tne seriousness ot the situation as
now prevailing. It will be said that
every householder should have the
right to have in his home a weapon
which to defend his family. All right

The London paper, it will have been
noted, recommends that the sale of re
volvcrs should be guarded with the
same stringency that is made to invest
traffic in deadly poisons. In this coun
try, nowever, tnere are not sufficient
safeguards around the sale of poisons
and habit-forming drugs.

FOR A REAL CURE
New York Banker Would Pay That
Much For Fried mann Con
BUT IT MUST BE EFFECTIVE
To Test Cure Mr. Finlay Proposes
To Treat Tuberculosis
New York, Jan. 25. Charles E.
Finlay, president of the Aetna Na
tional Bank, states that, he is ready
to pay $1,000,000 to bring to Amer
ica the tuberculosis serum discovered
by Dr. F. F. Friedmann, of Berlin,
if it can be demonstrated in New York
that the treatment will cure ninety:
five out of a hundred cases.
To test the cure, Mr. Finlay pro-
poses to nire a sanatorium in iew
York possibly the Old Polyclinic Hos-!
pital in Thirty-fourth Street, and
treat 100 tuberculosis patients free
of charge. The first of these patients
will be his son-in-law, Rex Lee Paris,
a rrtnoetoa atniete ot tne class oi
1908, who married his daughter, Neva
Estclle Finlay, and subsequently de
veloped tuberculosis. Mr. Finlay said
that his interest in the cure had its
origin in his consideration for his son-
About three weeks ago Mr. Finlay
read of Dr. Friedman's success with
the serum and wrote to him. Dr.
Fricdmann's brother, Dr. Arthur Fried
mann, of Colorado Springs, took the
matter up with Mr. Finlay, and there
was a conference at the Aetna Bank,
at which Dr. Laureson Brown, of Sara
nac, was present. Mr. Finlay receiv
ed a cablegram from Dr. Friedmann
in Berlin saying the offer looked
more reasonable than any previously
received. Mr. Finlay expects to get
a definite response from him within
Mr. Finlay said that he had offered
to pay Dr. Friedmann's expenses to
this country and also the cost of a test
on a hundred patients, which will
amount to nearly $40,000.
It is his hope, he said, to discover
whether the scrum is effective ,and to
that end he intends to give patients
every pos-ible auxiliary treatment and
care. .He intends to leave the selec
tion of patients to New York phy
icians, and no charge will be made.
He said that he had been told that
Dr. Friedmann has presented his cure
to the Imperial Board of Health of
Germany, and that the rights to it for
the Briiish empire and Russisa have
been sold for $1,000,000 each.
"We intend to make a through test
of this serum," Mr. Finlay said. "If
ninety-five of the 100 patients are
cured it will have been established as
a cure. If 75 per dent of them are
cured the' public will be informed,
and in the event of its failure that also
will be made known. We intend to
test the serum on tubercular cases in
the primary secondary and literally
stages. We will give it a fair trial
We want to find out also whether
the after-effects arc injurious worse
than the disease itself.
"If the cure does prove effiicacous
we shall establish a sanatorium near
New York, and perhaps a half dozen
throughout the country. The poor
will be treated free, and the wealthy
will pay us what they see fit. I can
not say whether the treatment will
be made public then, because Dr
Freidmann tells me that in the hand
of a burglar it is as dangerous as a
knife in the hands of a maniac.
"No one knows how earnestly
hope that Dr. Friedmann's cure will
prove absolute. I am not a rich man
and $1,000,000 will take practically
all I have. But I shall consider my
self fortunate to have had the oppor
tunity to help humanity, mere are
12,000,000 people with tuberculosis
in the United States, and of these
600,000 die a year, 28,000 iu New
York alone. And the majority of
them are young men. It is a young
man's disease. I have great faith
in Dr. Friedmann."
