President Wilson is a regular "Old

The developments of every passing
day tend to show that the President knew
what he was talking about when he
said an insidious lobby was operating in
Washington. At first Senators said
they thought lobbyists were less active
than was formerly the case. But the
fact seems to be that they are merely
active in a different way. The investi
gating committee which by the way is
headed by a North Carolinian, Senator
Overman, is finding that the lobby is
very much of a reality.

The addition of the Inter-coastal

facilities for the receiving and dis

New Bern for it to give liber al patron
age to both railroads and also to the
new boat line. And competition be

only in reasonable rates but in prompt

Josephus Daniels i undoubtedly
right in characterizing Dr. Kingsbury,
who died Wednesday aftcinon at his
home in Wilmington, as the most ac
complished journalist in North Car
olina. There was a scholarship and
a literary flavor about Dr. Kingsbury's
editorials that obtained with the work
of no other editor in the State. And he
wrote with an ea.se of style and ex
pression that placed him quite in a
class to himself among North Carolina
newspaper writers. lie led a
clean and wholesome life and .is a
result it was given to live for longer than
the average person. North Carolina
is much the poorer for the departure

CAROLINA AND THE SOUTHERN
We have received the May number
(f Carolina and the Southern Cross,
of which Mrs. L. V. Archbell of Kinston
is the editor. The magazine is a re
minder of her indefatigable industry
and dauntless determination in bring
ing out in the face of difficulties and dis
couragements that would have caused
a less persevering individual to have
given up the fight long ago. The May
number is like the others that have
been issued, full of entertaining and in
forming reading matter to show what
the South achieved in the war between
the States and something of the prob
lems and perplexities it had to contend
with. To read the magazine and learn
of the obstacles cheerfully met and
fvercome by the men and women of
war times is to be inspired to more
thorough and earnest work in the less
thrilling but perhaps not less important
duties which devolve upon patriots
ADVERTISING UP TO DATE.
Advertising is getting to be a fine
art, particularly in the cities, where
competition is keen and where every
known expedient is worked to the limit
by energetic and progressive firms in
order to get the patronage that is
necessary to remaining in business.
Some of the advertisements in the
New York papers for instance are
prepared by men who could write a
brilliant editorial or news article and
who probably would be doing work of
that sort but for the fact that they can
ean larger salaries writing advertisc
aents. A leading clothing house in the
metropolis the other day advertised
suits ol clothes for sale. The average
advertiser would have indulged in a
few platitudes and stopped there. Not
so with the clever writer who frames
the advertisements of the firm to which
we are referring. After a few brief,
pungent remarks about the lightness
and coolness of the suit as a whole he
proceeds to take it up garment by gar

Planting of Cow Peas Urged by
U. S. Department of Agri
culture. Again we desire to remind farmers
of the importance of planting every
available, cultivated acre to cowpeas.

They are one of our most nutritious
foods for stock.

The roots and stulASlc are worth from

flic vines, roots, and stubble furnish
humus (vegetable matter), something
nearly all soils are deficient in.
This humus helps to make the land
cultivate easily. It absorbs and hold
moisture that will aid to continue its
growth during a drought.
Humus furnishes the conditions nec
essary for the existence of beneficial
bacteria that enable plants to get nitro
gen from the air.
The shade of pea-vines helps in the
formation of valuable nitrates in the
Pea-vine roots are good sub-soilers.
They go to considerable depths, open

systems of rotations of crops. They

every tarmer should arrange at
once to plant abundantly of this im

plant some for grazing by horses, cows
hogs and other stock; and by all means
plant, fertilize and cultivate a few acres
for seed peas so he will not have to
buy at high prices next season.
(Nearly everything said above about
cowpeas is also true of soy beans. The
beans excel in being a little more vat

better and usually make slightly larger
yields of grain and hay.

The experience of Motherhood is a try
ing one to moat women and marks dis
tinctly an epoch in their lives. Not one
woman in a hundred is prepared or un
derstands how to properly care for her
self. Of course nearly every woman
nowadays has medical treatment at such
times, but many approach the experi
ence with an organism unfitted for the
trial of strength, and when it is over
her system has received a shock from
which it is hard to recover. Following
right upon this comes the nervous strain
of caring for the child, and a distinct
change in the mother results.
There is nothing more charming than
a happy and healthy mother of children.
and indeed child-birth under the right
conditions need be no hazard to health or
beauty. The unexplainable thing ia
that, with all the evidence of shattered
nerves and broken health resulting from
an unprepared condition, and with am
pie tim? in which to prepare, women
will persist in going blindly to the trial.
Every woman at this time should rely
upon Lydla E. Pinkham's Vegetable

invigorator of the female organism.
