carried on h.v the hoard of education
for the past few yearn has resulted

Banks Are In Gooci Condition.
The hank* of North Carolina have
lieen doing an increasing business in

to' December fi . for the report
Just issued by the North Carolina
Corporation Commission shows an in
crease of resources of $0,259,628.60.
This in the record made by the 1149
banks, including 14 branches for that
period. The total resources on No
vember 10. 1910 amounted to $62,-
146,451.31' ami oil December 5, 1911,

Naming Stations On New Railroad.
The first station out of 101 kln on
the Klkin & Alleghany Railway will
very probably be named for the gen
eral manager of this road. "Mills."
the second will be called Thurmond,
after a son c, f the president, 11. G.
Chatham: the third will be called
Doughton, for the lieutenant gov
ernor: the fourth, Chatham, for the
family of this name, who have been
active In the furtherance of this
project since its" Inception In 1907,
and the last will, of course, lie Sparta.
These are family names so to speak,
hut It is regarded as being entirely
fitting that these men. who havo been
active -jit the work of building tlris
road should have such testimonial of
their activity and Interest in a work
to which they have devoted so much
time and effort.

Why He Couldn't Sit Down.
• Harry, aged tlx, Is an orphan; but
an Indulgent grandmother and kind
maiden aunt have taken dare of him.
The Brat pair of knickerbockers were
secured recently, and it was a proud
moment for the boy when his aunt
put them on him on Sunday morning
and he was permitted to go to church
with hla grandmother. Naturally
maiden aunta know very little about
the arrangement of knickerbockers,
and there was a suapicloua fullness in
front and an equally mystifying tight
ness is the back to be observed, as
the little chap trudfced happily along.
In church Harry aat down, but did
not appear comfortable and stood up.
"Harry, sit down." whispered his
grandmother. He obediently climbed
back on the seat, but soon slipped off
again. "Harry, you must sit down."
"Grandma, I can't. My pants is chok
ing me." She looked more closely
than her dim sight had before permit
ted, and discovered the new little
knickerbockers were on hind side be
fore. Harry stood up during the re
mainder of the serv^e.

to further cinch them, has been made effective.
There were formerly revenue duties imposed upon 4T QJ

thereafter Brazil imposed an export duty
coffee up to the full amount of the former customs Ajy*
taxes in this country. The revenue which for

In the Woman's Home Companion
there is an intereating presentation of
the difference that exiats between the

generation. How did the women of
the middle class of a generation or
two ago manage when they could not
keep help? Following la the answer
quoted from a Companion editorial:
"They lived according to their
meana; they did not set up Impossible
'standards, and they knew much less
about the science of bringing up chil
dren. They had no special style to
keep up; gave the children a weekly
bath; kept the table set between
meals; did not serve their meals In
courses, but put all tßfe food on the
table at once; confined their social
affairs to evening calls and parties,
and church suppers, at which they
wore the same black silk dress for at
