Baldness is too Generally
Considered a Sign of
Advanced Age
A bald-headed person does not ; j
have an equal chauce with one'
blessed with a healthy head of hair,
because baldness is too generallyj
accepted as an indication of age.
Many large corporations have es-1
tablished an age limit, and refuse;
to take men over 35 years of age as|
new employees.
Probably 65 per cent of bald-;
headed people may regain a good
head of health bair if thev will fol

head, unless the roots of the hair
are entirely deadj their folhcies

with the distinct budei standing that
unless ii does exactly what we
'claim it will, and gives satisfaction
'in every respect, we shall make no

At eighteen he became editor of
the Scotland Neck Democrat, and
its circulation increased three bun
dred per cent iu twelve months.
I lis editorials showed 1 firmness
of conviction, a soundness of judg
ment and a grasp of the I)' tnocratic
faith far beyond his years
At twenty oue he located at
Roxboro in Person County to prac
tice law. The people among whom
he cast his lot wtre of tbe best

and married Miss Musette Satter

tion as one of the most charming
and popular hostesses the Govtr

Success came slowly, as it does
to most young men at the bar, but
to him it came surely. People

party in Person County, .mi, under

In 1896 he was nominated for
Congress in the Fifth District
against Hon Thos. Settle, the
most brilliant Republican com
paigner in the State, before whom
Judye A. W. Craham and the late
A. H. A. Williams had successfully

especially *O, as the Republicans
and Populists in their fusion had
allotted that Distiict to th>- Repub

joint canvass will evir forget their
memorable debates, Kitchin was
triumphant!v elected and was the
only successful Democrat on either
the Congressional or State ticket.
Strict? then be has known no defeat
His election in the largest and most
prospetous Congressional district
in the State gave courage and hope
to the party in its darkest hour.
He kept ihy l imp of Democracy'
j burritnu brightly until the dawn of
the new day. For twelve years,
| and until be voluntarily retired to
! become Governor, In* held this im
portant position withou' Deino
cratic opposition.
| In every political crisis in the
[ last twenty years he has been found
| in the l'oref r oot fighting the battles
of Democracy. He to >k a leading

A mend mint campaigns,
i lieforr? tbe suffrage amendment was
I ratified by the people it was attack
ed in Countess and lie defended' it
in a speech of such wisdom and
power that it not only .profoundly
impressed Congress, but was circu
lated tbiouglit the State as a cam
paign document to the extent ol
85,000 copies and had great weight
111 shaping public opinion for that
important measure.
In Congress he took an acfive
part in the debates and became
first Democratic member of the
Committee on Naval Affairs, one
of the most important committees.
He served 011 the Congressional
Campaign Committee of his party
for ten years. He made notable
speeches on the Monty (Question,
the Philippines, the Trusts, tbe
Pearson Crewford contast, the
Southern Railway Subsidy, Reci
procity and many other important
questions. In .the Congressional
debate his political views were fully
and fearlessly expressed, and his
record is one of consistent devotion
10 the principles of progressive
Demociacy—which is but a new
nau.s. lor true Democracy. Long
before the election of Senators by
uuect voie of the people became
popular, he was voting for it 'in
Congress. For y'ears he has favor
ed primary ' lections for the noniir 1-
tion of candidates and the publicity
of campaign contributions. Among
the things he has fayored are tne

vi'ege, whethm in the form of sub
sidy oi a protective tariff, whether
it was favoritism for his own section
or that of another. He opposed a
si.oo a Year in Advance
[ship subsidy, and in ihe same spirit
he opposed a fast mail subsidy for
the Southern Railway, which had
360 miles of its road in his Congres
sional District. His position is
clearly shown v »y, this little .extract
from his speech in Congress on
April 6. 1906 against this subsidy:
"Pi r myself, I fail to sec how any
appropriation, otherwise wrong,
cau be made rijjht because of its
'coming onr way' (Applause.)
If it is.riyht, to support it bv snch
an argument discredit it,
as it is an to selfishness and
not to judgment.''
When the public interests requir
ed Federal appropriations for his
District he claimed thnu with a
ztra) and successllurrmsstd by none.
He never hesitated to oppose any
appropriation which the public in
terests did not justify. Ft never
sought a temporary advantage by
bartering the principles of his party
or the birthright of the people. He
has tried to win on the righteou
ness of bis cause, and uever upon
iniquitous | recedeiits. He lias op
posed si protective tariff on princi
ple, just as bis party opposes it.
He has been able to ".ee cletrly that
protection never put a dollar in any
man's pocket that was not taken
out of some other man's pocket.
He believes that the true end of
Government is the establishment of
justice among men, end not to aid
the greedy few in pre)ing upon the
unsuspecting many.
During his whole public career
he has consistently the op
pression exercised by private in
dustrial monopolies, commonly
called trusts, ntii advocated the «n
TWAmerff the rivil and ciiudnat
statutes against them, thus incur
ring their peimunent hostility. He
has stood (or the strict regulation
of the natural monopolies, such as
railroads, and for the destruction
c/f "the unnatural industrial mono
polies. On May...3 i_, ryooattd Feb
ruaiy 6, KJO3, he made speeches in
Congress against trusts an.; to this
day his attitude of hostility has
never changed. In the hall ot
Congress and 011 ;ne hustings, in
his inaugural address as Governor,
in a special message to the Legisla
ture of 1909, in the last campaign,
and in his message to the last
Legislature lie urged the adoption
of striHgent measures against trusts.
The convention at Charlotte,
which nominated him for Govern
or, sat night and day for nearly a
week and sixty-one ballots were
taken before a nomination The
loyaltv and determination of his
friends, representing their people,
surpassed anything ever witnessed
111 the political annals oi the State.
The e who knew him best support
ed ';:tn most loyally.
Me went into office a free man,
without a pledge or a promise to
any one He was bound only by
the pledges of the party which
eler , bun and these he has re
iig entity kept. He bas been the
uovetiior of all-the people and
thi r e has been no "power behind
the thioue."
A t >ntest of this kind always
enp.en'Ts bitternese of long stand
ing alTd-this has been no exception,
He incurred the hostility of a num
ber of in. a prominent in the politics
of the State and they have not been
anxious to herald the success of his
adru ni.stration. It is probable that
no Governor ever'went into office
in the State with so many to watch
his every action, to misconstrue his
motives and to discredit his admin
istration. In his campaign for
nomination his enemies pictnr»d
h m as a wild, radical agitator, who
would plunge the State into endless
turmoil and confusion. Since his
actions as Governor have proven

there are those who seek to create
the fake impression that since he
has not fulfilled their prophesy of
