NEW LAWS REDUCE LIQUOR
One reason why we believe that the

This is a substantial gain and shows
thnt New Bern is forging ahead. We
venture to predict that in the next
three years a still greater percentage
of gain will be shown. New Bern is
going forward at a most encouraging
rate. But the possibilities before

TRASHY LITERATURE AND ITS
One of the prime needs is for more
sensible views on the part of the young
people of the country as to the question
of love and marriage. We are moved
to make this remark by noticing
newspaper headline telling of the
suicide of Lillian Branch, a West
i ... . .
uurnam cotton null girl, who was
despondent over a quarrel with her
sweetheart. This unfortunate young
woman exaggerated the importance
of her affairs of the heart. More than
likely the young man in the case was
not worthy of her being despondent
over him let alone her sacrificing her
life for him. But the main question
is why did she forget that there are
as good fish in the sea as have ever
We will venture the guess that
the bottom of the rash act of this
unfortunate girl was one of the trashy
love stories with which the country
is flooded. False notions teem in these
books. Anything that would reduce
(he extent to which they are placed
in the hands of the reading public
would be an unmixed blessing.
Had the young girl of West Durham
been less unsophisticated and take
a more practical view of her love affairs.
the chances are that she would speedily
have made up with the young ma
because of whom she flung her life away
or, failing in that, she would have
found another and ia all probability
a better mate.
A proper amount of romance Is
very pretty thing and we don't discount
its importance in adding to the beauty
end charm of life, but as every obeer
ring person know broken heart
are mended so often that it is folly
to say that there are case where
mending ia out of the question.

too numerous to mention, but when we
