'ft looks like Teddy. Now for
the Democrat who can kick bis bat
, dear «ut of the ring.
'The Presbyterians assembled at
\ Bristol had two important ques
' tioos to settle—the elect infant
clhk ind what to do with the
Church of Rome. They decided on
Che infants btit granted a respite to
j*he Pope and his followers.

'lf there were more women like
tfaeone la Charlotte who not only
helped her husband in a personal
• way to fight the demon drink, but
mttmt before the courts and indited
1 the booze sellers, there would be
leas violation of the liquor law.
The Democrats of Martin Couuty
instructed for John H. Small. This
is tbe first time that such action
has been taken- and was a wise
course to pursue. No man in Con
gress de'erves tbe commendation of
his people more the man from the
First District. In the common
pailatice >f th.' day: "lie is always
from the number of ex
hnrtcis. on the street Saturday, we
are a i>;ople bndiy 111 need of the
Gospel. There wtre live men set
ting toitb their respective beliefs.
No town will give a more respect
ful hearing to the truth of the
Scriptures, hut he irinii is not be
iteviug ami doftig.
Shall It Be Wilson?
On June 6th, the Democrats will
meet in Convention at Raleigh
Then it will lie decided whether
Wilson or Underwood shall secure
the vote of the State at the Balti
more Convention. It is very a;>
parent that National Committeeman
Joe Daniels is for Wilson as the
News & Observer has !>een fighting
his battles vigorously for weeks.
No doubt, Wilson will get a
cent of the vole from North
Caiolinn if not all. The Democrats
of North Carolina can be depended
upon to do the right thing, and
harmony should lie the main issue.
It is time of all times to stand
together an l tight the Reduhlican
putty to a successful finish. The
moment now is when the South
combined with the West can dictate
to the money interests of the North.
These interests fire arrayed against
Wilson especially. But then Wall
Street is against any Democrat.
They cauuot have sufficient "pull''
with the paity whicbr stands for
The fight for the nomination be
twet; 11 the President and Roosevelt
is said by Republican politicians to
he "the most pitiable, execrable
and disgraceful exhibition that has
. ever been seen iu American poli
tics " It should be an easy vic
tory over either of them if the
Democrats will do the sensible
thing at Baltimore aud then kevp
it up. Whether it is Clark, Wil
son. Underwood or Harmon, the
party should hew straight to the
line and gain control of the govern
ment before the arrogance of the
Republicans reaches that point
where the freedom of the masses
will be assailed.
"'.To your tents, O Israel." Be
"Ueve in victory—fight for it and it
be ours. Some very foolishly
Chink that-if Teddy is nominated,
there is none to beat him. Such
people can not read the signs right,
l Americans are still free and want
ao third termer whose arrogance
surpasses that of any king in the
- annals of ancient times.
Mystery of the
\ Orchid Gown
5 "I am bead over heels In work," an
nounced Dorothy, bursting In on Mar

went with whom and what did evory

"I don't know anything about laat
night's dance (or tbe simple reason
that I waan't there," answered Mar
" Jory. ' - t
"You weren't there?" gaaped Dor
othy. "Why, I left you at sin o'clock
- raving about tbe wouderfui tlmo you
expected to have. With my very own

t "Aa you aay," began Marjory, "when

Was nowhere to be seen.
"I took all my olothos out of the

"I knew positively that when you
' were here my dress was peacefully
I hanging in the left hand corner of my

wardrobe was missing.
"Frantically I called mother, father,
' stater, brother Together wo searched
j every nook and corner of the house.
During the frenzy of the hunt I even
1 l'ourid myself looking In my thimble

"I can well Imagine your agony,"
. sighed Dorothy.
' "There was nothing lor me to do."

possible fo r me to go."

It is possible to trace in modern and
' quite poor people the marks of armor

It was ten o'clock on Saturday
morning. Nothing disturbed the stlll

Suddenly the door wm cautiously
opened and an anxious face Inserted
' itself in the aperture. SatLJed that

unobserved, the body of the or.ee
' boy swiftly followed. But the stenog
rapher's ears were keen, and without
