The Semi-Weekly Journal's appeal,
asade a few weeks ago for more
aews from country correspondents,
had a noticeable effect as we imme
diately received a number of most
interesting letters. Now we are wri
ting again for fear the ardor of our
friends will cool. We urge you to keep
the good work up. Help us make
the Semi'Weekly Journal helpful and
interesting to you.
We regard the letters from our
country correspondents as one of the
means the Journal has of being of
service to the section of country
through which it circulates, These
letters bring the people closer to
gether and tend to the development
of a community interest which is
most helpful. You help your own
community and by suggestion help
other communities by sending us the
news as it transpires in your neigh
borhood. Let us hear from vou !

At Goldsboro Saturday the mart Be

Wilson on account of unfaithfulness
was acquitted. Without in any way
condoning the offence of which the

North Carolina has too many serious
problems to be wasting any time over
the consideration of an anti-tippiug
law. If a man can't find a hotel or
restaurant where he can get service
without paying the proprietor and the
waiter too, let him go to the corner
grocery or to a private home. The
trouble is connection with the tipping
evil is that so few people have the
erve sot to tip.

which he gave ihr Jouranl that lew
com muni tie are more favorably located
