home near Everetts on May 22nd.
1913. She was the daughter of
the late Amelic and Susan Askew
and was born in Martin County
on October Bth. 1872. For six
teen years she had been a faith
ful follower of Jesus Christ, hav
ing professed religion and joined
the Methodist Church at Vernon
under the ministry of Rev. A. J.
Parker. Kind and loving to her
family, she was a faithful mother
and wife and friends and neigh
bors knew her in kindly ministra
tions through the years God gave
her on earth. During all the
pain which seemed to be her
heritage, she was patient and
was willing to hear the summons,
and just before her death, asked
that the time be short for her to
answer the roll call in the heaven
Two children and her husband
are left to miss her from the
home, and one sister, Mrs. W. H.
Rogers, is bereft forevermore.
To each the sympathy of the
community goes out, but only the
Holy Comforter can give them
Friday afternoon, May the
23rd. the last sad rites of the
Church were said by Rev. J. T.
Standford, and the body was laid
to rest in the family cemetery.
"For all the saints, who from
their labors rest,

Friday night, a [congregational
meeting was held at the Episco
pal Church at which time reports
were read telling of the work
during the counciliar year. Col.
Lamb briefly told of the principal
things done at the Council among
which was a resolution to allow
the women to vote in all matters
concerning the parish, same to be
ratified at the next Council to be
held in May 1914 at Wilmington.
He stated that the attendance at
the Council was the best in quite
a number of years and that the
amount raised for all purposes
was largely in excess of the pre
vious year. Mrs. Staton reported
for the Sunday School, which has
made the best record in its his
tory. A. D. Mizell read the finan
cial report of the parish, showing
that the amount raised for all
purposes aggregated $1,500. The
Junior report was made by Miss
Pennie Biggs and that of the
Young Woman's Auxiliary by
Miss Annie Kate Thrower. Mrs.
F. U. Barnes read the financial
report of the Woman's Auxiliary
and Miss Hattie Thrower read
the report of Mrs. K. B. Craw
ford, delegate to the Council, who
was unable to be present On
motion of Mr. Mizell, the duplex
system of envelopes was adopted
for the coming year, these to be
used for parochial and Diocesan
Card of Thanks
We wish to express our warm
appreciation for the many acts of
kindness done by friends and
neighbors during the illness and
at the death of our wife and
M. W. Cherry and children.

That the expense of maintain

$1,000,000,000 a year, or $lO per
That the expense of your State
Government is about $4,000,000 a
year, or $1.76 per capita—only
about one-sixth of the per capita
expense of the National Govern
ment? That North Carolina, as
compared with the Nation, is not
so very extravagant?
That about half of our National
expense is for wars past and wars
anticipated—that is, for pensions
and the upkeep of the Army and
Navy? That the National Gov
ernment spends slls for war
(Army and Navy) to every dollar
it spends for public health? That
apparently as a nation we are 115
times more anxious to kill than
to save? That the entire annual
expenditure of the National Gov
ernment for saving life is about
one-fifth the cost of one battle
That one modern battleship
costs $12,000,000, and that, it
costs SBOO,OOO a year to maintain
it for the twenty years of its life?
That the Congressional Library—
the finest library in the world
was built for a little more than
half the price of a battleship, and
that it is maintained for about
three-fourths of the cost of the
maintenance of a battleship?
That for the price of one modern
battleship 50 manual training
schools could be built and equip
ped for teaching 75,000 young
people useful trades and arts?
That 2,800 churches, at a cost of
SIO,OOO each, could be built for
the cost of the construction and
maintenance of a battleship of
the North Dakota type? That
for eight years following the
Spanish War the expense for our
Army and Navy was S6O per
That it costs on the average of
$15,000 to kill a man in war,' and
in the Boer War that the cost was
$40,000 for every man killed?
That the'sanitary work carried
on in the Canal Zone has shown
that lives can be saved for $2.43
each? That if a live man is
worth more than a dead man, and
it costs $15,000 to kill a man and
$2.43 to save him, that we should
spend more on public health and
less on war?
WHT NOT GET ~
Every Article of Merit that is Sold
These Days is Guaranteed—No
Guarantee Often Means Poor
There is very little excuse for
any person to claim that he has
been "stung" on a purchase.
Fifty years ago the buyer had to
look out, but today it is unusual
to find a merchant who will not
return the money for any article
that has unsatisfactory.
An excellent example of this
kind of fair dealing i 3 chown by
the cleancut guarantee that
Saunders & Fowden give on Dod
son's Liver Tone.
These people tell us that any
person who pays 50c. for a bottle
of Dodson's Liver Tone and does
not find it a gentle and most plea
sant liver Tonic, harmless, but a
sure reliever of constipation and
a perfect substitute for calomel,
can get his money back just as
quick as Jthey can get it out of
the money drawer.
Dodson's Liver Tone has prac
tically taken the plaoe of calomel
It is absolutely harmless, sure in
its action and cause on restriction
of habit or diet. No wonder the
drug people are glad to guarantee
it, while other remedies that im
itate the claims of Dodson's Liver
Tone are not guarantee at all.
Do You Know-
Cyclone In Bertie County
A destructive cyclone swept
through the central part Of Bertie
county just before day Saturday
morning. The loss of life in
cludes three persons. Two per-
sons were injured and much
damage done. In the neighbor

home of Alexander Bunch, a
worthy colored man, was com
pletely demolished. He and his
wife and one grandchild were

A part of the house of Isham
West, another colored man, was
blown away, leaving him and his
wife in another part.
The width of the storm was
about two hundred feet. The
storm followed the track of the
great storm that wrecked the
Steamer Olive in Chowan river a
number of years ago.
The burial of the Bunch family
was attended by nearly two
thousand people, who gathered
there Sunday to witness the havoc
wrought by the storm.
The Club was entertained at
the home of Miss Anna Pope on
Tuesday, May 20th. The hours
were plesantly spent and the
hostess was happy in her arrange
ment for the enjoyment of those
present. Refreshments were
served attractively in the dining
room, which was prettily decorat
ed for the occasion. The next
meeting will be held on June 3rd.

The Law Again
There seems to be some ap
prehension in the minds of some
people for fear the search and
seizure law will be misunderstood
here. It has been interpreted to
mean that a warrant for the
searching of any place, must be
secured upon the affidavit of two
persons—that even an officer
must have such affidavits before
taking action. The simple read
ing of Section 3 as printed below
Will show that the law is plain
even to the wayfaring man. It
gives authority to "any officer
charged with the execution of.
the law" the right to secure a
warrant and search any suspected
person's place. For information,
said section appears in part be
Section 3. Upon the filing of
complaint under oath by a reputa
ble citizen, or information by
officer charged with the execu
tion of the law, before a justice
of peace, recorder, mayor or other
officer authorized by law to issue
warrant charging that any person
firm, corporation or association,
or company by whatever name
called, has in his, their, or its
possession, at a place or places
specified more than one gallon of
spiritous liquors or more than
five gallons of malt liquors for
the purpose of sale, a warrant
shall be issued commanding the
officer to whom it is directed to
search the place or places de
scrided in such complaint or in
formation and if more than one
gallon of spiritous or vinous
liquors or more than five gallons
of malt liquors be found in any
puch place or places, to seize and
take into his custody all such in
toxicating liqurs described in said
complaint or information.

Despite the long spell of dry
weather which retarded the set
ting of tobacco plants, the crop
is looking well in this section.
Since the rains have fallen, the
plants have been reset, and pros
pects are good for the market
this fall. If weather conditions
continue favorable, which re
mains to be seen, the output here
of the weed will be large, though
some farmers have planted other
But rightjhere, as we have done
from time to time, we urge the
producers of tobacco to cultivate,
cure and grade carefully. There
is much dissatisfaction caused
from imperfect handling in the
different phases Jof the crop.
Some men always get good money
for their crop, because they never
neglect same. Don't rush to
market in a slip-shod way.
