S. T. Wall, of Edward, Beaufort
county, was in the city Friday. He is
still very much concerned in the matter
of the opening up of a shorter route
from his section to New Bern. His
petition for the improvement of several
miles of road torn the Beaufort line
into Craven and running along by
Spring Hope church, will come up at the
next meeting of the Craven commis
sioners which will be Monday .week.
The hitch will come, says Mr. Wall,
over the fact that there are two routes
proposed and the . Commissioners will
have to choose between the two.
Mr. Wall believes, however, that it
can be demonstrated to the satistac-
tion of the Commissioners that the
route that they should select is the one
that leads by Spring Hope church.
This is the most direct route, and it is
the route that the people in Beaufort
county, who want to come to New
Bern to trade, would like to see opened
by Craven county.

the mortality rates of married and un
married men, with the result that it
has been established that benedicts live
longer than bachelors.
The compiler of the statistics comes
to the conclusion that the lower mor
tality rate of married men is due to the
supervision ot tneir loou, .iougings,
hours and habits by their wives, and
to greater incentive to self-restraint
and care of health than the bachelor.
All this may be conceded. But the
figures submitted show' that the mor
tality rate of widowers and divorced
men is greater than that of the married
men or of the bachelors. Also the
death rate of single men at 70 is great
er than that of the married men of that
age. This would lead to the conclusion
that divorce is a peril to health and

Opera company's injunction suit to
restrain him from giving grand opera
in English this fall, was served on
the plaintiff's attorneys yesterday after

that the Metropolitan Opera company
