THE STUDY OF WORDS.
It's a Helpful Scheme to Use Your Dic
tionary Every Day.
Writing an article, "Treasure In

the following excellent advice about
the advantages to be gaiucd from the
study of words:
"The study of words-It may sound ,
to you a dry thing, yet I promise you
It Is not; very fur from It.
"And this brings me to suggest that
the habit of oue of the great writers of
studying carefully from a pood diction
ary five words each day Is one from
which we might all of us get a good
deal of profit. Or take a good book of
synonyms, for Instance, ana learn from

lar, comparing and weighing carefully
the meanings and values of them.
"Notice the degrees of force In the

say, like an ascending crescendo scale.

a great nicety of difference. So, re

all of one color, but of bow different
shades of meaning. So. too, misfor

that this be stopped at once.
We visited the County Jail, and made
a thorough investigation. We found it
kept in a good and sanitry condition,
and the pris ners treated in a humane
way. We found one ol the prisoners,
Sam Brown, in a bad condition, physi

made a thorough investigation of the
affairs of this institution, and find the
dwelling in good condition, the pre

We com nend Mrs. Williams, the keeper,

We visited the Convict Camps, and

We have examined the report of R. B.

We have taken into serious considera

House, which has been agitated by

that to enlarge the Court House, as
recommended by these bodies, it would
put the County to an excnse of alxiut
Forty or fifty Thousand Dollars ($40,
00000) or ($50,000.00) whereas, (here
could be certain alterations and changes
made in the Court House, as it is at
the present time, which would answer
the same purpose as building and ad

the countv an ex pendii ure of over Ten
Thousand ($10,000.00) Dollars.
We therefore rtvonmicnd that the
follouiuc. i hanges be made.
That the present offices of the Regis

perior Court, be converted into fire
proof vaults, and fix the new vaults with
sieel casfs, make the ami room on the

an entrance to these rooms underneath
the stairway on each side of the hall:
the present toilets in the .ud to be used

We believe that the ab'iw changes
and alterations will answer in cverv
way the same purpose as eiil.irgenu nt

Sufficient Reasons Why The

Pamlico County at This Time
First: We offer a candidate thoroughly qualified in every particular, and
well fitted for this position
Second: Craven, Carteret, Jones, Greene and Pitt, the other five counties
constituting our Judicial District, have one or the other, been repeatedly re
presented, on either the State Congressional or Judicial ticket.
Pamlico, the only county in the district, which has never received the hon
or of this representation, now present to the district the Hon. Z. V. Rawls, a
candidate for Solicitor possessing the
good qualities necessary and essential for the office to which he aspires. We
insist that we are entitled to recognition and that we should at this time be re
presented on the judicial ticket; reposing special confidence in the integrity
and fairness of the Democracy, of the
to ask and expect the support and influence sufficient for the nomination of our
andidate. It would aparently be, in
asking favors of others and never be willing to give a favor in return.
Pamlico county has for more than
for the cause of Democracy, and aided

fficers, congressmen, and I'nited States Senators, have also sought and recei

among people who arc aware of all
It is an undeniable fact that the
secretary of jhe navy himself ordered
the withdrawal of Rear Admiral Ma

cruiser Des Moines, from Tampico.
The vessels were all ordered to Vera
Cruz except the Des Moines, which
was instructed to withdraw outside
the harbor of Tampico. This was on
Rear Admiral Mayo was astonished
at receiving the order. He did not
believe that this withdrawal was in
tended, and the order was not obeyed
until he had received confirmation of
the dispatch from the navy depart
ment. At this ti ne Rear Admiral Badger
was bevond wirclejs commnication
with Rear Admiral Mayo, and knew
nothing of the withdrawal of the ves

accomplished. For that reason he had
nothing to do with it, and did not ap
prove of the order from Washington.-

PLAIN AND UNDISPUTED FACTS
TO CONSIDER AND WHY YOU
SHOULD VOTE FOR D.
First. He will rcprecnt the people
of the whole county and not any one
particular part of county or person.
