We'pass along this excellent editorial
from the Wilmington Dispatch on the
things in life that really count. The
Dispatch is right; the individual who
fixe a single eye on the almighty
dollar and sees nothing else, lives in a
small world indeed. His horizon is
circumscribed. He looks neither to the
right nor to the left but straight
ahead at the elusive dollar that lures
Urn On. He is afraid to take his eyes
from It and view the beautiful scenery
along the pathway of life. He never
knows what a beautiful world he is
living in but hastens madly on to a
premature grave; and when he gets
down to the water's edge all the gold
in the universe wouldn't buy him an
other minute of life. The Dispatch's
"What counts in the long run is
ot the craving to make more mon

foundation under which and upon

A bag of money obtained at the
expense of health is of no benefit.
Wealth accumulated nt the cost of
deprivation that starves the body,
thus weakening the muscles and
straining the mind, is an evil rather
than a blessing. The actual presence
of money in pocket accomplishes
nothing. And what applies to the in
dividual applies to the community,
because individuals make the con
aianky. Of what benefit is a town
filled with misers? What can-be ac
complished in a town filled with bad
streets, fwtth poor sanitation and
with crime rate high, even though
the citisens have large bank roils?
Nothing substantial, under such con
ditions, and sooner or later the indi
viduals themselves are going to
feet the boomerang because a $20
bill robbed on the head will not cool

Craven is the first county in the State
to have a farm life school. We are
going to educate the boys how to farm

President Wilson was right when he

Bourke Cockrane was exactly right
when he said that the sole province
of the court of impeachment was to
ascertain whether or not it was for the
public good to remove an official and
that it was for the criminal courts to
inquire into charges like those presented
against Sulzer and punish therefor if
necessary. That was the reason that
we argued fhat Sulzer should be re
tained. It was for the public good.

THE PENSION QUESTION
The. New Bern Journal is of the
opinion that before pensioning the
teachers of North Carolina their pay
had better be raised. Quite the cor
rect position, in our humble opinion.
So far as we are concerned we have
never been strong for pensioning and
one connected with National or State
Government, outside the Army and
Navy, unless a general pension sys
tem is to be had to go into every
civil walk of life. We have Bever un
derstood why a pension should be giv
en a bookkeeper in the employ of
the Government or State, or some per
son of similar classification, unless
bookkeepers and clerks in the private
walks of life are to be pensioned. We
would be willing to stand for a general
old age pension, applying to all, but
not to any one Government or State
department, barring those already ex
cepted, particularly twenty the old
bookkeepers in private life would nof
only have to scuffle for a livelihood,
but would have to help to pay such pen
sions. However, we do believe that every
man should get a living wage and it
is a satire on the part of a govern
ment, whenever found, to contend for
living wages in private walks of life
when not paying such to its own em
ployes. This wan especial force when
applied to teachers. In fact, peculiar
force. Men and women who are sup
posed to go into training for such po
sitions, who can only become teachers
through hard work and who do not
find employment at their work the
year round, are expected to exist on
comparatively small salaries. In or
der to fit the boys of today for the
successful business men of tomor
row and to educate the girls so that
they will make a success of life, able
minds are required. Yet the posses
sors of these minds are expected to
make martyrs of themselves for small
pay. Perhaps, it may be beautiful for
ouch men and women to place them,
selves upon the sacrificial sltar.but
ia not human nature for them to do sit
Neither is it right, nor should it "
expected. And it is not necessary
when the remedy is so near at hand
and so easily obtainable. The answer
b) plain. Pay them more money. So,
instead of swefitag the breast with
pride and laboring under the impres
tion that big benefaction will be
doa by prnsioniing teachers, why not
pay then more. Do this and they will
gat a better chance at present aad
perhaps, be able to save up something
for their old age or time of stress.
AN EXHIBIT FOR
STATE DEPARTMENT OF AGRI-
CULTURE HAS BOOTH AT
THE FAIR. '
One of the most interesting exhibits
at the Fair and one which will probably
be of more interest and benefit than any
other to the farmers is that of the
State Departmentof oj Agriculture.
This exhibit is in charge of T. W.
Adickes, assistant curator of the State
museum and he is assisted by Major
W. A. Graham, commissioner of Ag

State veternarian; Miss Allen, assist
anr botanist and Mr. Pate, a soil
Each has charge of a separate de
partment of the exhibit and at all times
during the day are giving demonstra
tions which have proven of great help
to the farmers and all those interested
in agricultural development.
Of especial interest to the ladies
is the instructi. ns given by the canning
department. -There, the art of canning
without the use of sugar and numerous
other useful things are taught. Free
literature is being distributed and every
visitor to the Fair is extended a cordial
invitation to visit the booth in the main

NEW BERN'S NEWEST STORE

Since the announcement in the Jour
nal a few days ago that Baylor's, whose
headquarters is in Richmond, Va.,
would open up an establishment in
this city handling ladies outer garments,
furs, etc., the feminine population
of the city have been awaiting this
event with marked anticipation.
The store, located at No. 61 Pollock
street, was yesterday opened to the
