If it is going to cost fifteen millions dolars and require seven years to get the physical valuation of the railroads, the matter had better be dropped your Uncle Sam don't wast to bite off more than he can chew.

It pays to plow deep,' The W Iming ton Star, which is alert ' for all new wrinkles and developments in the field of sericulture, says: "The Kansas Department of Agricul Hire has demonstrated the value of rieen nowine bv actual tests that apeak for themselves. The expert ment was made in growing wheat When the land was plowed three inches deep in the preparation of the land the vield was 16 bushels per acre, minimum, and 22 bushels, maximum When plowed seven inches deep the first yield was 33 bushels and the second 35 bushels. , Thus doubling the plowing depth results in doubling the yield. We presume that as a matter of course to double the plowing depth is to increase the expense but it would certainly lack a great deal of doubling it. The deep furrow seems to be quite the thine for our farmer friend if he wants to increase his income. A LIVELY CONTEST AHEAD. Though it will be in 1916, three years distant, before the people of North Carolina hear the choice of the Democracy for its candidate for Gov ernor, there is frequent reference in newspaper items and in editorials as to how the line up will be when the race for nomination begins to make the dust fly. It is a habit we have in North Caro lina of talking about "the aext Gover or" as soon as a newly-elected Gov ernor declares his inaugural address, and sometimes even before this. It is often done in the way of a "feeler, so in "trying out" before the public the popularity of some favorite son and it's a pretty good way. The pa pers and the people are at this wo.k right now, and it is interesting to note the growth of the list of those who are held to be eligible. The Sanford Express of this week gives the longest list of possible can didates for the Democratic nomina tion that we have yet seen, that paper editorially saying: "A number of North Carolinians are being mentioned in connection with the Democratic nomination for Governor in 1916. Rumor says that Associate Justice W. R. Allen of the Supreme Court and A W. McLean of Lambert on, will be candidates for the office of Chief Executive. Both men have strong and Influential friends Judge Allen, on account of his long service on the Supreme Court Bench, knows practically every influential pol ticJan in the State. Mr. McLean has been active politically for the past few years, and was a tower of strength in the Wilson-Simmons organisation in North Carolina. It is believed that Attorney-General T. W. Bickett, Sec retary of State J. Bryan Grimes, and Treasurer B. R. Lacy will be in the running for Governor. Close friends of H. A Page have mentioned him as a likely candidate. With any t hr, c or aH of these men in the contest, the race will not be uninteresting." That "there will be others" is, of course, a matter of conjecture, but the time being long before the entries will all be in, it may b regarded as almost certain that the 1st given above will be increased aa the days fy. That the contest foe the next Democratic nomination will be lively cannot be doubted. Ralesgh News and Observer. "I SHOULD WORRY." Of aH the imbecile .Uag, and the most of it is' imbecile, aim phrase, "I should worry" is the most meaningless aad lacking in excuse fat existence. The Ohio State Journal tells of all Interesting incident concerning it. It aye that In St. Lows two women, next door neighbors, got Into a quarrel over a dog and one of them by using this slang expression over and over made the other one so angry that she hit the slang user with a milk bottle. Taw Ohio paper does not give the particulars of the quarrel, hut from a jatttrl observation of the circumstances under which it Is used we are safe la saying that k waste woman who owned the dog who kept saying "I should fimpling on the flowers of the other woman, or snarling at her child or something of the sort. The St. Louis affair got into court. The defendant accounted for her use of the milk bottle by declaring that the phrase hurled at her was a deliberate slur and meant, "I don't care what you say or think." Wit nesses, called doubtlesi to testify g the capacity of experts, gave varying testimony as to what the much used slang expression meant. One said "It is a contemptuous phrase used to show disrespect." Another said "It is a good-natured sally, containing no malice." The woman who was assaulted said that it was a playful remark and a meaningless popular saying of the day. The jury in the case returned a verdict for the defendant presumably because of the insulting and tantalizing reiteration of the expression rather than because of the offence that would have been involved in a single utter ance of it. The phrase really means the reverse of what it says, signifying as it is generally used that, whatever it is that suggests the remark is a source of worry to any and to all persons rather than to the speaker. But, as before stated, it is slang of the most pronounced type and really should not be countenanced. THE OFFICE HOLDERS AND THE OFFICE-SEEKERS. We are constrained wit WWW We are constrained to agree with the Clinch Valley News in its conclusion that "candidates seldom kick themsel ves into office by trying to kick some body else out. There ought to be a better reason." There should be and the sovereign voters should be thoroughly convinced of the logic and force of that reason before they do the kicking. Richmond Virginian But what are you going to do when some fellow establishes himself in office and gives every evidence that he has decided to stay there the balance of his life? Isn't turn-about fair play? In the matter of office holding few die and none resign and there is no such thing as applying the good old Demo cratic doctrine of rotation in office without kicking somebody out of office l'o be sure kicking is rather a rough term and we fell sure that the gentlemen who perform the act would feel better satisfied if it could be characterized by some more polished and genteel term. They don't mean to use violence but they do mean to be firm, else they will feel more or less responsible for the existence of an office-holding trust "Few die and none resign," we repeat The rest will hold office for ever you don't kick, pry, bounce or take them gently by the hand and politely conduct them out. it, and it makes them hit. I a So, while other batsmen are wilting I not visibly, perhaps, but still wilting under the hot glare, it is doing the Big Three a lot of good. It's what they are used to, and they are feeling as though they were at home, as though they were at home. Norfolk Virginian Pilot. GOVERNMENT BY THE MANUFACTURERS. Instead of government by the people it would have been government by the National Association of Manu facturers if that organization could have had its way, according to the evidence which is now reaching Congress And no doubt it has been more a case of government by the aforesaid asso ctation than many people have supposed. It remained for Wilson, Bryan and men like them to come along and put an end to the partnership between the government and business. When one comes to think about it there is really no more reason why the govern ment should foster the business of the wealthy business man than there is that it should boost that of the poor man. The latter and his fellows to gether pay as much to support the government as the comparatively few rich men in whose interest the govern ment has been legislating. I LOCOMQTIV ES MACADAM PURE WASTE. ? The good roads problem is more of a problem than it appeared to be some years ago. Ten years ago the prevailing opinion was that all you had to do to a road was to macadamize it and it would give practically no more trouble Little was thought about wear and tear But with the advent of the automobile in large numbers the element of repair to macadam roads became a big item and now wc are finding expressions like this from the New York World: 'The Governors of both Kansas and Missouri are to 'put on overalls in the cause of good roads. Meanwhile an expert tells New York state, which is issuing $100,000,000 of fifty year bonds for macadam roads, that maca dam is pure waste. Governors might better put on thinking caps than over alls." We fancy that the experts are exag gerating a bit when they say that the building of macadam road is pure waste But, plainly, it is not the perfect or even the approximately perfect road Col. Mulhall is certainly a handy man in eliciting denials. He has been consigned to the Ananias Club so many times already that the process must have quite lost its novelty if indeed ever had any. The expected happened when the President accepted the resignation of Henry Lane Wilson, ambassador from this country to Mexico. These two Wilsons are very much unlike in their sympathies and it was not to be ex pected that they could work together. SOUTHERNERS HITTING BALL. Are Ty Cobb, Joe Jackson, and Tris Speaker great hitters who happen to be Southerners, or are they grat ball play ers because they are Southerners? The coincidence of the men having the bat ting lead in the American League all coming from the South has set people to wondering if it isn't more than coincidence. Cobb is from Royston, Ga.; Jackson claims Greenville, S. C, as his home. while Speaker comes from , Hubbard, Tex. All three are unquestionably Southerners, and it is agreed that thirl fact hl, three naturally good players be even greater than they would be otherwise. Baseball is, fo- the most part, played In very hot weather. The glare of the sun, the heat arising from the d iamond very seriously hampers some players. la fact, during the hottest of the sea son's games many players were ser iously affected by the beat. But Jackson, Cobb aad Speaker steamed right along. They are from the South, the proponents of the Southern Idea say, and the South isn't simply called Sunny It is sunny. The throe leading batsmen got used to hot weather early ia Ufa The sun rlmn't twit her them Thou lllra CRASH T OGETHER BUT IT WAS FOR MOVING PIC TURE PURPOSES AND NO ONE WAS HURT. New York, Aug. 5. "Let 'em come! came the order from somebody, and 200 men and women, grouped in a field along the line of the single track Raritan River Railroad, two miles out of South River, N. J., craned their necks toward the track and became rigid. A pistol shot was fired and from half a mile on either side of the waiting crowd came the shrill whistle of a loco motive. Forty seconds intervened. With a roar that told of throttles opened wide the two engines one of them drawing three reeling coaches leaped toward each other and into the vista of the watchers. A moment passed. There was a mighty burst of noise. Steam and boiling water and flame and smoke broke over the scene. A shower of twisted steel rose and fell. Then the cloud of steam and smoke lifted. The engines had telescoped. There re mained nothing but a great mass of broken metal. A man ran from the crowd. Great! he howled. she was a peach!" For the first time in the history of mo tion pictures a film making company had wrecked two trains. The incident which cost the Vitagraph Company of America more than $35,000 will be made the central feature of a film drama. Six camera men, lined along the track, cranked their machines as the trains sped on. One operator, Harry A. Keep ers, escaped death by three feet when a twenty-pound engine step buried itself in the ground at the edge of his stand. The players of the company rode to the scene of the wreck-to-be early yes terday. The trip was planned quietly and no dwellers in the district knew of the coming "catastrophe." The several that were eventually attracted wondered when they saw heaped beside the com pany's special a pile of fearsome looking dummies, painted' in ghastly coloring and destined to become vistims of the disaster. The wreck was staged and directed by Ralph W. Ince, director of the com pany, and A. V. Smith, one of the pro prietors. Aiding them was C. M. Him- melberger, Superintendent of the Rari tan River Road. Difficulty was experi enced in so timing the starting of the engines that their collision would occur in focus of the cameras. Anticipating trouble, Mr. Ince stationed his six oper ators a hundred yards apart. If only five had been there it is likely the wreck would have gone unfilmed from any advantageous point, as, thio igh a miscalculation, the smash took place in line with the furthest camera stationed. This machine was operated by Keepers. The young min clung to his crank during the pelting of broken steel about him. Not even when the heavy engine step whizzed down close to him, did he stop the motion of his hand. Officials of the company last night asserted he must get the credit for having saved the company from losing the $35,000 invested. After the steam hsfl cleared from the wreck, the company's 200 players placed themselves within and close to the outrides of the cars, qjhen a car was fired and the "rescue" work was begun. Dummies and actors alike were handled limp from the burning wreckage, while women "survivors and bereaved "rela tives waved their arms -in despair. Seven times the hero of the film's story, who in real life is E. K. Lincoln, bat tered his way from the depths of the wreckage, stared dazedly about him, changed coats with a dummy and then hurried to the "side lines" to assure as sociates that "it sure is hot inside." When all was over but the flare of the still burning coaches, the company settled down under the trees to beer and sandwiches. The play was played Out.
