The tell-tale wrinkles on many
a forehead and around many
eyes tell of eye abuse and neg
lect tell of that constant,, eter
nal, daily grind, grind, grind,
ever crowding a trifle nearer the
danger line. And the hardest,
most futile effort is to make the
average busy business man real
ize that ten times the nervous
energy allotted to any other or
gan is daily wasted through de
fective eyes, causing reflex phy
sical and mental ailments remote
from the seat of trouble.

DOWN AFTER DIRT
Inspecting Every Place in Eliz
abeth City Where Food
The Housewives' League of Elizabeth
City is making an inspection of every
place in Elizabeth City where food is
sold, this week. When they get thru
with that inspection they will supply
placards to those places whose clean
liness entitle them to the approval of
good housewives. The placard reads
THIS PLACE OF BUSINESS HAS
by the "
HOUSE WIVES' LEAGUE
The Elizabeth City public can have
'clean stores, clean markets and clean
bakeries by patronizing only those
places that carry that sign.
The inspection by the League began
Tuesday morning and was directed at
the start by Mr. Allen, a food expert
connected with the State Board of
Health. The inspection so far has re
vealed that Elizabeth City stores and
other places where food is sold are
generally better than found in the
average southern town. But lots of
filth was found and some,- of those
women will never, never again permit
on their tables any meat, fish, bread or
other food found in some places in this
This newspaper has asked the House
wives' League for a list of those places
that passed inspection and those that
didn't. The League will not give out
the information. One of the foremost
women . connected with the League
says: "We are not banded together to
antagonize our merchants and dealers,
but to co-operate with them. We de
mand cleanliness in the handling of our
food and we demand pure and whole
some foods. These are our rights. We
are determined to know how our food
is handled. When we find a stpre, a
market or a bakery not up to 'our ideas
of cleanliness we shall kindly but can
didly tell that grocer, that butcher, that
fish dealer or that baker what we ex
pect of him. If he does not clean up
we will not talk about him, we will not
publish him; we will just silently re
fuse to buy from him and his place of
business will not carry the sign of our
approval." . .
SECOND WARD POLITICIANS
WAGE CAMPAIGN OF LIES
One Lie is That Small Grocers Will
Not Be Allowed To Sell
When a gang of politicians begin to
see their finish they begin to manu
facture lies wholesale. The old poli
ticians in the Second Ward are circu
lating all sorts of campaign lies these
days. One lie that is particularly calcu-
elatd to deceive is to the effect that
grocers will not be permitted to sell
poultry and vegetables if a new -Board
of Aldermen is elected. The old poli
ticians are saying that a new Board
will not permit such things to be sold
outside the city market. This news
paper assures the people of the First
and Second Wards that under the laws
of North Carolina no grocer could be
prohibited from selling vegetables and
no Board of Aldermen could confine the
sale of such things to a market house.
The Aldermen can declare a fresh meat
market a nuisance and force meat
dealers to comply with stringent sani
tary regulations or go in the market
house, but no Board of Aldermen will
ever prohibit the sale of clean, fresh
vegetables in neighborhood stores. The
man who started that lie evidently
thinks he has got to do some tall lying
to get himself elected.
A SPLENDID YOUNG FELLOW
CUT DOWN IN PRIME OF LIFE
One of the saddest deaths of the
year in this community was the death
of Robert V. Lamb who died in a Nor
folk Hospital Thursday night, May 1
after an illness of only a few days.
Just a week before his death Bob Lamb
was one of the healthiest, strongest
and best insurance risks in town. And
then he fell while lifting a piece of
iron at the Norfolk Southern freight
depot here, where he was employed.
In falling he sustained an internal in
jury which did not at the time appear
to be at all serious. But complica
tions arose and he was rushed to a
Norfolk hospital Thursday morning.
He died that night. Robert Lamb was
30 years old and is survived by a young
wife and a baby nine weeks old, and
by his mother, Mrs. Claudia Lamb. He
was a boy of high character and held
the esteem and good will of the city.
DERRICKSON AND BOWDEN
WANT THINGS FOR FIRST
Derrickson and Bowden, candidates
for Aldermen in the First Ward have
announced themselves four square for
street improvements for that ward.
They don't seem to be so much inter
ested in the market house issue, but
they do want better sidewalks and bet
ter streets in the First Ward and they
say they are going to look after that
ward if they are elected. Both men
favor a City Manager government with
an experienced City Manager in charge.
"The First Ward pays enough taxes
to get good sidewalks, good streets,
regular garbage collection, ample police
protection and everything else that we
need. With the affairs of the town
properly managed we can get what we
are entitled to." says G. Frank Derrick
son. Mr. Derrickson is' one of the most
popular candidates for the Board of
Aldermen and it is freely predicted he.
will lead the ticket in his ward. People
have confidence in him.
Friends of Mrs. Annie Spence Harris
of Norfolk, Va. are glad to know she is
improving after an illness of five weeks.
Mrs. Harris underwent a serious operation-

Some Evidence of
When men of extensive means of many years'
automobile buying experience, purchase new
machines and pay cash in full for them, their
selection is apt to be wise.
Following is a list of men of this description who have
bought the '19 series of Touring Cars from us.
So far as our information goesand we believe it abso
lutely accurate these cars have been run 1000 to 8000
miles each. Not a single owner has ordered one single part
or paid as much as one dollar for work.
We refer you to these gentlemen for their opinions of
their cars, and our treatment of them.
