-ng a revjvaj meeting here, has is-
sued an open letter to William J.
Bryan urging the Nebraskan to be
come an evangelist and predicting
that Mr. Bryan would become the
equal of the apostle Paul.
"Twelve years ago," writes Mr.
Oliver, "I wrote you a letter in
which I stated my conviction
that you should preach the gospel
and added the statement that if you
would consecrate your wonderful
talents to God as an evangelist the
Bryan of the twentieth century cen

first century, as a champion of the

Mr. Bryan may be in advance of
the times with his advocacy of gov

three overwhelming defeats we still
think him the greatest and purest

President is the country's loss more
than Mr. Bryan's. We would not

effort has fully convinced us that the

forlorn one. Yet the principles for
which Mr. Bryan stands are Demo

fact that the one Alfred H. Curtis, the former president of the bank, who
was jointly tried and convicted with Morse, was given his liberty on a sus.
pended sentence. Morse's attorneys, of course, are in iking a great figlr
to have his sentence suspended also. He is possibly no more guilty thar

They are all tarel with the same stick the onlv difference is their intelli
gence and opportunity.
Much has been said on the results of the election j i--t held. Many have
predicted that the country is ruined by the defeat of Bryan; equally i"s
journals are already talking politics for 1912. On the front page of the
Manufacturer's Record of November 5th, the following wholesome advice,
which every citizen should ponder well, is given: "The American people
have had several years of politics. Everything has been made subservient
to the whims of the politicians who have felt like saying of business what
Vanderbilt is reported to have said of the people. The result has been
that business did very nearly go down to the bottomless pit. Often men
of sense have permitted the political agitators to run the country without
any united effort to save themselves from ruin. Now, let's get to business.
Let's realize that business mean3 work for everybody, and that means em
ployment and prosperity." A whole lot of good sense Is crowded into
this last sentence, "Let's realize that business means work for everybody,
and that means employment and prosperity." Who ever is President,
whether he be Democrat of Republican, the success of the people of the
South and of the entire Union depends upon their push, energy and own
personal effort. The mere election of a President will not change your
condition. If you would succeed you must be thrifty and active.
North Carolinians are not much
for we are now informed by one Dr.
Don't Be Alarmed.
the country a3 a "scientific expert" with the Government Country Life
Commission, that we North Carolinians are a weakly paled-face set of
folks and in a bad condition generally. That we haven't as many red
corpuscles in our blood as a frenchman, etc, or thing3 to this effect. While
it is true the average North Carolinian is not much on "figuring up" the
number of red blood corpuscles in his system, It is not true that North
Carolinians are the puny set of folks that his "Science" tells him they are.
The Doctor's passing observation has led him astray and this misrepresen
tation of the physical condition of the people and the helpfulness of our
State does us an injury rather than improve our condition, which is sup
posed to be the object. The following figures show that North Carolina
stands way above the following States as to healthf ulness and ratio of
deaths. With a population of 1,263,000 whites, the census states the deaths
at 13,217, being a little more than one death to a hundred persons; in rural
New York there was one death to every 66 persons; in Maine and In Mas
sachusetts one death to every 57 persons; in Pennsylvania, one death to
every 70 persons; Ohio, one death to every 80 persons, in Indiana one death
to every 70. There is no cause for alarm. A fair comparison will demon
strate the fact that North Carolinians will measure up in bodily strength,
physical endurance and mental vigor with citizens of other sections.

October gave a party;
The leaves by hundreds came.
And Ashes, Oaks, and Maples,
And those of every name.
The sunshine spread a carpet,
And everything was grand;
Miss Weather led the dancing,
Professor Wind the band.
The Chestnuts came in yellow.
The Oaks in crimson dressed;
The lovely Misses Maple
In scarlet looked their best,
And balanced all their partners,
And gayly fluttered by;
The sight was like a rainbow
New fallen from the sky.
Then, in the rustic hollows.
At "hide and seek" they played;
The party closed at sundown,
And everybody stayed.
Professor Wind played louder;
They flew along the ground,
And then the party ended,
In jolly "hands around."
