Secretary Bryan can stay in his office
half the time and get more results
than most men could get by staying
there over time.
The expected happened when E
Justice of Greensboro made the an
nouncement that he was a candidate
for the United States Senate. If elec
ted he will make one of the ablest
of the men who have been members
of that distinguished body.
Semator Cummins, a Progressive
declare that the Simmons-Underwood
'j. tariff bill if enacted into law, will carry
the Democratic party to defeat. Well
it is better to go to defeat with platform
pledges discharged than to continue in
victory with solemn promises an
fulfilled. But Cummins is no prophet
or son 01 a propnet.
PISTOL-TOTING AND MURDER
The Georgia-Legislature, says the
Norfolk Virginian Pilot, has before it
bill making pistol-toting a felony,
and some of the newspapers of the State
are urging its enactment in a way
which would indicate, according to
the Virginian-Pilot, that they think
the mere placing of such a law on the
statute books would avail to reduce
to a minimum homicides within the
Cracker Commonwealth. Then the
Norfolk paper goes on to say that
what is really needed in Georgia in
order to reduce the number of murders
in that State is to enforce the laws
against murder. But in Georgia as in
most other States it is a condition
aad not a theory that is causing the
trouble. With the death sentence as a
punishment for murder, it is extremely
difficult to secure a verdict of guilty.
So a law to prevent the reckless use of
pistols would seem to be capable of
meeting a very real need. Prevention
is better than cure and far cheaper,
EXPRESS AGENTS AND
Elsewhere is printed an article by
Rev. Wilbur F. Crafts, Ph.D., on the
Interstate liquor law and the express
companies. He quotes from a letter
written by the second vice-president
of the Southern Express Company
in which that official directs destination
ageats to decline to deliver packages
of whiskey which they have reason to
believe are to be sold and to return
them to the shipper charges collect.
This is a very gratifying position for
aa official of the Southern Express
Company to take and should have
the effect of making law-enforcement
considerably easier. Of course
increases the responsibility of the des
tination agent and inevitably concen
trates upon him the attention of the
people in his community who are eager
to see the liquor laws obeyed to the end
that theirs may be a better, cleaner
and more orderly city. Local express
agents can cut off the supply of some
of the "blind tigers" by observing the
instructions given by their second
PROPOSED CHANGES IN
CEL POST SERVICE.
Plans for the extension, improvement
aad reduction in rates of the Parcel
Post have been announced by Post
master General Burleson. It is needless
b say that the announcement will
to very welcome to the people generally
Ft the Parcel Post has proved a

been anticipated and has not had,
we believe, the hurtful effect on the
snail store that had been anticipated

TROUBLOUS TIMES IN MEXICO
The Huerta administration in Mexico
appears to be on Its last legs. The
wires at any moment may bring the
news that a new president has appeared
oa the scene, slain or imprisoned Huerta
aad established himself more or less
firmly in a position of authority. The
country is indeed in s pitiable plight.
Unless some strong man looms out of
the chaotic conditions now prevailing,
the suffering which the people of the
stricken republic will be called upon
to endure is distressing to think about..
There never wt such an opportunity
far a great man. There have been men1
ia history who have mastered such a
baffling, appalling situation as now
obtains in Mexico, but whether Mexico
sch a man or if it has one, will
, him into its service is very much
of an uncertainty.
fU RACE TO SUCCEED OVER
MAN. Wttmingtoa Star says it can see no
very exciting fight for the place ia the
United States Senate now held by Lee S.
Overman. We don't know so much
about that. Senator Overman is ambi
tious to succeed himself. There is
a strong probability as the Star itself
says that Ex-Governor Glenn will
get in the race and there is a possibility
that State Chairman Charles A. Webb,
if he fails to be appointed United States
District Attorney, will aspire to the
wearing of the toga. E. J. Justice
thas but lately shied his hat in the ring.
Such a combination has decided possi
bilities of activity it would seem to a
person on the observatory.
Mr. Justice is talking very calmly
and meekly now but he has a record for
not doing things by half. Governor
Glenn is no slouch when it comes to
getting out and hustling for the votes
of the people. Senator Overman is
expected to show some considerable
tenacity in the way of clinging to the
position of honor and emolument
which now promises to be in such great
demand. And if Mr. Webb does finally
decide to get in the running there
can be no doubt that he will add no
little to the zest of the affair.
Contests for a nomination to a much
coveted honor always look like they will
be tame affairs, but it is the rarest
sort of thing for them not to have the
most exciting and nerve-racking finish,
PROBABLY NOT TRUE.
A Japanese writer recently stated
that his country was the only one
of the nations friendly to the United
States, intimating that this was the
unloved nation among the powe.s of
the earth. This is sad, if true, and
proves, if true, how barren of result
have been the efforts of the great
international philanthropists who have
opened their hearts and purse for the
benefit of mankind across the seas.
The trouble with the remark of the
Japanese writer is that what he says
is probably not true. If the nations
of the world were inclined to be jealous
and envious of the wonderful progress
made by this country it might be
true as the Japanese author says
that all nations are unfriendly to this
one with the exception of Japan
But there are no signs of any such ill
feeling. France has given every sign
that it is friendly and sympathetic
rather than otherwise. John Bull
might naturally be expected to be sore
on this country but all will recall how
cheerfully he entered into the celebra
tion ot the hundredth anniversary
of peace among the English speaking
nations. Germany is fond of this coun
try if for no other reason that we have
so many Germans over here. Russia
at this very time has a large delegation
of its foremost men over here and a
part of their mission is to let the
American people know more about
Russians and for themselves to learn
more about America, to the end that
both nations may understand each
other better. The whole world, in
short, is progressing in the direction
of greater breadth of vision, of benevo
lence and kindliness and not in the
direction of narrow and petty sel
fishness and envy.
ONLY PERFECT BABY SO FAR
In the August Woman's Home Com
panion the campaign for "Better Ba
bies" is further reported. The "Bet
ter Babies" movement is a movement
toward the improvement of children
by means of baby shows where babies
are judged according to their physical
conditions rather than according to
their beauty. Hundreds of these shows
are being held in the United States
this year, and in each case the chil
dren are judged precisely as live stock
is judged according to a strict score
card prepared by eminent physicians
Of course the most important part of
these shows is the opportunity they
afford for distributing among mothers
practical scientific suggestions for the
care of children. This is being done
with thoroughness and great success
In a report in the August Woman's
Home Companion entitled, "Better
Babies in Cities," there is an account
of two successful 'contests organised
and managed by women of Knoxville,
Tenn., and Des Moines, Iowa. Follow
ing is an extract from the report of
the Knoxville show:
'The final feature proved truly
dramatic. First, the physicians had
found a perfect baby, Sidney June
Chastain, aged twenty-five months, son
of a successful young business man
and a mother who springs from fine
Georgia stock, an ideal American boy
When the youngster was pronounced
perfect half a dozen medical men took
him in hand and put him through a
second and more rigid examination.
But there was no shaking that first
verdict. Sidney June Chastain had
scored the maximum possible on the
LBetter Babies Score-Card, one thousand
points, one hundred per cent.
It was hard for physicians and
committee members to keep the secret
but the feat was accomplished, aad
when the announcement was made in
connection with the prize award, ap
plause shook the building. Sidney and
Jus proud but astonished parents were
asked to come to the platform so that
the audience could look the hundred
per cent, baby over. The little lad re
ceived not only the first cash prize in
his class but two silver mugs, one pre
sented by the Woman's Anti-Tubercu
losis League, the other by the Woman's
Home Companion, in recognition of the
fact that Sidney was the first child to
reach the standards of weights aad
measurements set in the Better Babies
Standard Score Card."
NO SURE WARNING OF ICEBERGS
A despatch from Washington an
nounces that the official reports of
Capts. Johnston aad Gimble, who
in the cutters Seneca and Miami
have been patrolling the North Atlantic
line of travel, will give little encour
igeeent to public expectation of the
speedy discovery of some method of
warning ships oa foggy seas of the prox
imity of icebergs. It has been found
that the approach of even the largest
iceberg does not affect the temperature
of the ocean air to any noticeable
extent. Neither does an iceberg cliff
send back an echo in all cases to a
ship's whistle or bell. In fact, about
90 per cent, of the efforts of the Seneca
to get echoes in that Way were futile.
This conclusion will disappoint many
hopes. The calamity of the iceberg
wreck of the Titanic brought so sternly
to the public mind the vast dangers
attendinglthese floating masses that
something like an actual outcry went
up both in Europe and America for
science to devise a menas of guarding
against them with surety. We have
grown of late to have such confidence
in science, and in' the marvellously
delicate mechanism by which almost
any physical change in land or sea or
air can be detected and noted, that
it was virtually assumed we should soon
have an instrument capable of detecting
the presence of any large mass of ice.
We shall have to wiat. For the present
the one safe course in foggy weather
in the iceberg season is to stop until
the sky clears. Experience teaches it
science confirms it. New York World
Staunton, Va., is feeling its otas
since it sprang into prominence by
becoming the birthplace of a Presi
dent. A bill has been introduced
in the House of Representatives to
give it a public building costing
The storm of last Saturday afternoon
seems to have been general all over
the Eastern part of the State. In a
good many places there was hail.
Of such places Smithfield heads the
list for the weight of hail stones. There
they weighed according to a newspaper
dispatch, from a half pound to a pound
You will certainly have to hand it
to Smithfield for the best hailstone
President Wilson is being urged to
appoint Theodore Roosevelt minister
to Mexico. It is to be hoped that
he will not do so. The Colonel is too
bloodthirsty. He would involve this
country in warfare with Mexico as
the first step in the solution of the prob
lem. William Jennings Bryan is the
great pacificator of this day and time.
Send him to Mexico to straighten things
out and the Mexican menace will be
a thing of the past.

There is more Catarrh in this section
in the country than all other diseases
but together, and until the last few
years was supposed to be incurable.
For a. great many years doctors pro
nounced it a local disease and pre
scribed local remedies, and by con
stantly failing to cure with local treat
ment, pronounced it incurable. Science
has proven Catarrh to be a consti
tutional disease, and therefore requires
constitutional treatment, Hall's Catarrlf
Cure, manufactured by F. J. Cheney
& Co., Toledo, Ohio, is the only Con
stitutional cure on the market. It is
taken internally in doses from 10 drops
to a teaspoanful. It acts directly on
the blood and mucuous surfaces of the
system. They offer one hundred dol
lars for any case it fails to cure. Send
