"The Wages of Sin Is Death"
Mighty Forsythe was .the man
whose lifeless body was found in
Clayton, N. C. several weeks ago. j
Forsythe pained his mighty name
because he towerefr pver his fellow
men in strength and b.»cause he ran,
ever his own government in failing i
to observe its laws. Hut like all
other earthly things, lie came to the
end of the way. He took with him
in his unlawful whiskey traffic, men j
who were not even as good as he, and i
then the most 'dangerous thing on j
earth, a bad woman. So the vile gay j
party rode on, the levity increased, j
the rum ran freer, the conversation!
grew more vile, the . temper lost its ;

Intolerance Is Foe of Peace and Happiness
Intolerance is the greatest hin
drance to the peace and happiness of
our people today. We don't have to
go into the low dives of what we call
the worst society. We find equally as
much intolerance in our high govern
mental organizations and political
circles as we do around the gambling
den.
. In the church, you can find everyl
type of intolerance that can he found
in any organization in the world. We,
too frequently, find the churchman
who finds no other way of measur
ing the prity of his religion except
l>y measuring it by the ipmurity of
hir neighbor's religion. We sometimes
find a Gentile haling a Jew, and a
gain we find a Jew hating a Samari
tan. We can follow the cycle of race,
hatred until we find every fellow hat-

Prospects of a Brighter Day
The people of North Carolina had
cause to be glad last week when the
student council at the University forc
ed the expulsion of a number of
young men charged, with drinking and
gambling. %
The University, like most of the
other schools of the State, some of I
which were church schools, has seen'
much drinking and gambling for many j
years. Now there is hopes for a better;
day. The students themselves, have
i'J ready denounced brutal hazing that
for so long harrassed the young stu- 1
dnets. Now they are saying you can-;
not participate in the dangerous hab
it of drinking and gambling. It seems
to fortell the dawn of a brighter day,
a better time and a safer day for *.hoi
young men and women of our Stat>». J
Hie percent of student fai'ures at
our colleges has been very much en
larged by the gambling nabit, thf I
neglect of work on account of gainb!-
i
ing has sent many fine boys home on
account of grade failures. They leave
the achool and return to the old home
I
town where they take their places pn j
the loafers' benches. They find them
aetvea unprepared for any useful oc-J
keeping up their gambling in which

game they are soon leaders of the in
