first passion when he rrew to man

Mr Strother speaks of Aycock as

Carolina lias produced, as well as one
of its sweetest spirits ami bravest

IS THE AMERICAN HOME
LOSING ITS SANCTITY?—
The above seems to be a question
demanding the serious consideration
of every one.
In our State for the year ending
July ls», there were 366 homicii.
cases tried. Of course huitdruis of
people were killed a:»l tiie muni- rer
i.sver apprehended :.iti brought o
irial. W|)i) we think that in a sla.e
.like our own where we clan.: much
;*rfiction, there :s a murder tr.:d
staged niost every day of the'-ye;;.,
we must confess there is somtlh ij;
wiong either in the heart or *.h» «i>h.
However bail wc ma> pic ure I.e
\liious court scenes, the one thai
pulls us down the most is divorc--.
It. ten years/ we have doublet! out
oivorces compared to marriages. In
1913- North Carolina had one divorce
tor every 32 marriage.- and in 19J3
cne for every 16 ntarria^s.
One of the reasons for this lar,.e
i. crease is the change in the divoix
I iw, which make.-, it muci e»>ier thu
,i fornterally was to ire* a divorce.
Our laws years ago only gave
divorces on biblical grounds, bu
they have gradually been modifier
Li.til we liave almost reachesi the
;ame stage of many of the northert
and western states, in some of which
the only ground required is to like
uiother man or woman better than
your husband or wife and go in
ccurt with a few aAdavits and a lit
tle money.
Martin county stands a little above
the average as we have about 24
marring** tor each divorce. The aver
t (re for Washington county is 22;

tor Keatitert, lit; for Edgecombe,

for Bertie 6.6. Cherokee county s'ands
at the extreme end of the list with
more than one-fourth of its mar
riages set aside by the courts.
One of the main troubles with the
divorce law, especially in its adminis
trator is the fact that it is looked
upon as something funny and as some
thing that attracts the rabble because
it lets lojse the ugly family secrets
and bursts asunder the vows which
were so sacredly taken.
If the North Carolina home has
lowered itself, it is because it has not
leen properly sustained by our civic
bodies, churche:. and legi.«"luiures.
