AM) THE EARTHQUAKE CAME
While Dr. George W. Truett is conducting
his revival in Raleigh and while the city is wait,
ing to hear the Rev. Thomas Dixon next week,
it is a good time to l-ecall the story of the most
stirring moment in the history of evangelism
In 1886, so the story goes, Thomas Dixon
was holding a revival in Raleigh. It was sue.
cessful under the spell of his oratory, but not as
successful as he wished. The heart of that old
hardened sinner, the City of Raleigh,'' was 'not'
entirely softened even by the Rev. Mr. Dixon's
moving 'words.'' On the evening of August .31,
1886, he made his supreme effort. He brought
his service to a close, it is related, with the fol.
lowing prayer: "Oh Lord, if Raleigh cannot b-.
shaken in any other way, send an earthquake."
It came. History records it as "the Charles
ton earthquake.'' but in Raleigh as Thomas
Dixon's congregation went home, they were
stirred as if their preacher had ordered the end
of the world and delivery had been prompt.--Raleigh
News and Observer.
MAKING LIVING AT HOME
As crop pitching time moves near, and
farmers are muddled about what the federal
authorities are going to allow them to plant
without plowing under, there is one plan they
can make now and nobody will disturb them.
- They can set themselves to make what they
are going to need to eat, and feedstuffs for their
mules, horses, cows, pigs and what few sheep
there are in the state.
North Carolina is away behind in making
h living for it.-elf.
So busy trying to. make a little spending
money out of cotton and tobacco that it is com
pelled to depend upon foreign canneries and the
distant fields of the West for their foods and
Agricultural indepcndar.ee for the state can
come no other way than through living at home.
That goes for Mecklenburg, too, which has its
face in Western troughs. Charlotte Observer.
It is getting to be just about that time of
year when you see a man digging in his garden
you can't tell whether he is gardening or getting
THE CURFEW ORDINANCE
Waynesville will soon have a curfew or.
dinance which is for the purpose of keeping
minor.- off the streets after a reasonable hour.
There has been entirely too much mischief and
devilment done bv minors in this town in recent
i the action of the- board of alder.
to curb ttiat.

it solved a problem that is similar to the one
