To this end he has just issued the
"To the People of North Carolina,
Up until a few weeks ago aud for
?our- years, our State was blessed
with law and order and peace and
plenty reigned. Now, a few lawless
men, in three instances,, have taken
the law into their own bands and by
violence and with strong hands have
overthrown the law. and wilfully aud
deliberately committed murder by
lynching persons confined iu jail, lu
none of these instances was there ike
slightest excuse for these acts, for in
all cases special terms have been or
dered and in one case the court was
aotually sitting and trying the pris
oners. Such acts breed contempt of
. law, bringing the courts into (Tire
pute, and put a blot on the good name
. of the State. To stop these disgrace
ful occurrences and to protect all
prisoners, no matter who they are, 1
have* issued the following order to
all the sheriffs of the State, aud to
those in commaud of the State troops:
To the Sheriff of- county,
In the future, whenever any crime
ls committed in? your county, use ey
ery-means in your power to arrest the
offenders and bring.theiu to trial. Af
ter their arrest and confinement in
your jail, if you hear of any threats
or rumors of violence, you will at
^.bnce notify me, giving all facts, to
the end that! may take such steps as
to me seem expedient. 1 also hereby
"direct you to notify the^eaptain ;of
the nearest military company of* said
rumor'and order him to be in readi
, "hes * to-aid you in case-of need. Yon
also have the power to summon and
ann alt citizens as a posse comitatus.
If, af lei* this, violence'is attempted,
I hereby command you. to order out
the military company and the posse
and have them armed and ready for
duty. You will then make proclama
tion and order all crowds about your
jail or attempting.to seize your pris
oners to at once disperse - telling
them if they refuse you will use
force and their injury will be on their
own heads. Use every peaceful means
in your power to disperse the crowds,
' without using force, but if they still
refuse to leave, and continue theil
threats and unlawful acts, use force
sufficient to disperse them, even if
kitting be. necessary. You will like
wise arrest aud put in jail all such
persons engaged in said mob to the
end that they may bc prosecuted and
punished according to law. I have
confidence in the intergrity of the
civil officers and ?count on their co
op?ration with me in suppressing all

To Captain-, Company -,
North Carolina National Guard:
,JSir: Hereafter in case at any time
you .hear of au attmpt at violence
by mob law, you are hereby com
manded to report thc facts to mc,
and also notify the sheriff of the
county where the violence is threat
ened, of your readiness lo tender him
your services. In the event yon are
ordered out by the sheriff, you are
hereby commanded to obey his law
ful orders. Attempt no violence as
long as there is a chance to enforce

ter ordering the crowd to disperse^
aud they refuse, orders you to fire,
do so. Arest al lthe mob you can
and deliver them to the sheriff, and
continue to guard and protect the jail
nutil you are relieved. Do nothing
rash, but in every way possible aid
the civil authorities in suppressing
mob law. I have confidence in the
willingness and ability of thc military
to carty out this order. This is a gen

Thc. above orders show, my desire
to preserve law and to protect the
State, but even these efforts will he

State will aid in them. Law-abiding
people should keep ont of the mob,

It is not generally, known-not
even among painters-why certain
tints and colors wea-/ much better
than others cn houses, aud the
knowledge of just wliai tints are best
to use is, therefore, rather hazy.
One writer on paint, in a recent
book, says that experiments seem to
show that those colors which resist
or turn hack the heat rays of the
sun will protect a house better than
those which allow the?e rays to pass
through the fiini.

In general, therefore, the warm
tones are good and the cold tones are

the various tones these tints will
produce, will give a wide rauge from

yellows (like Union), cold greeus

Lazy Fowls Do Not Pay.
A lazy fowl is not profitable, and
one way to make the birds lazy is to
overfeed them. Overfeeding leads to
many vices, and some diseases occur
mostly where the birds have been pam
pered. The blood of birds is warmer
than that of animals, and as soon as
they are overfed they take on fat very
readily, the result being that they die
from vertigo, or become subject to
liver disease, especially fatty degen
eration. The feeding should be so as
to keep the hens at work by scratch
ing, and if a few grains of. wheat or
corn are buried in the ground in litter
the hens will industriously work for
them, an excellent plan being to scat
ter millet seed in litter, or even on the
surface of the ground. The ' object
should be to feed less concentrated
food and make potatoes, grass and oth
er bulky material serve the purpose, as
the hens prefer food which contains
all the elements necessary for promot
ing laying. Lean meat, blood and ani
mal meal are valuable additions to the
grain and bulky foods.
R. M. Kellogg cuts back the roots of
strawberry plants fully one-haL-even
more when the plants are dormant,
his experiments favoring the plan
as against leaving them as received
from the nursery, his theory, result
ing from practice, being that wounds
of the cut back roots callous at once
and numerous little feeders start at
once, which develop a much larger root
system, which in turn builds a larger
crown, the net result being a heavier
foliage and more abundant yield of
fruit. The cultivator is pressed into
service at once the plants are set to
overcome the waste of moisture result
ing from the tread of tne planter. He
finds the 12-tooI implement better
adapted to his use. If you would se
cure the highest possible results, says
Mr. Kellogg, "cultivation should be
repeated weekly throughout the sea
son. And don't forget the hoe. All
the crusts should be broken close up to
the roots of the plants. This prevents
weed seed from germinating, conserves
moisture and- admits air to the bac
terial germs. The best time to kill a
weed is before it gets started, and the
hoe is the most effective tool with
which to accomplish it." After the
Tduts receive one or two cultivations
and hoelngs, they will start blooming.
The blooms should be picked off at
. Eggs For Hatching.
Good, hatchable eggs are necessarily
the foundation of every successful
hatch. Good breeding stock is Just as
certainly the foundation for the se
curing of good eggs. Degenerate, pam
pered, unthrifty stock can't be reason
ably expected to produce many hatch
able eggs. Neither can hens that have
to roost in trees, on fences, or in a
shabby house. A poor hen house is as
bad as no house at all. Don't expect
many eggs nor a high percentage of
fertility if your hens are housed in a
building through which the wind can
blow, or which gets cold so that the
fowls' combs and wattles freeze on
cold nights. Eggs may be very care
fully incubated, but there will be dead
chicks in the shell if the parent stock
wah lacking in vigor and vitality. When
weak germs do hatch they make weak
chicks that die in a week or two. Eggs
should be set as soon as possible after
being laid, but strong germs may be
held for three or four weeks if turned
frequently and kept at a temperature
of from 50 to 70 degrees. Eggs intend
ed for incubation that are laid during
cold weather should be gathered while
still warm if possible, or at the longest,
before they have become chilled. A
good plan is to keep a basketful of
bran or oats in a warm room and take
it to the hen house when the eggs are
gathered. The fresh-laid eggs are
placed in this material and so protected
from the cold while being conveyed to
tbe house. Wash all dirty eggs before
setting. Discard all ill-shaped and all
very large and very small eggs; also
those having chalky shells, as they
are too porus and not properly finish
Apple Trees in Dynamite Holes.
We have been setting out an apple
orchard of about eight acres, using
baldwins and greenings forty feet
apart, and Wagener, wealthy and
Duchess as fillers, twenty feet apart.
The ground was formerly mowing
land, but the old man from whom we
bought the farm had so much land that
lt rather ran away from him, and
there were, quite a good many alders,
birches and hard-backs on the piece.
These we had cut and burned. We
expect to cultivate close around the
trees with plenty of fertilizer for two
or three years; then follow the Hitch
ings plan. We wanted good holes and
three of us dug eighty holes the first
day, but the roots and stubble made
slow work and the holes were not sat
isfactory, so we tried digging by pow
der, and found it satisfactory, as il
dug a much better hole and did lt
cheaper. Dynamite was the power
and it makes digging sport, rather
than hard, tiresome labor, as it was
before. Wc experimented with vary
ing quantity and degrees and found
that one-fourth of a slick of fifty and
sixty percent, that Is B and C grade,
gave best results. The cartridges
weigh one-half to three-fourths pound,
and it costs twenty to twenty-five cents
per pound, so that covering cost of
cap and fuse the holes did not cost
over five cents apiece. We inserted
the crowbar about fourteen inches ami
into this hole we put the one-fourth
cartridge with cap and about eighteen
inches of fuse. Then, with the heel,
kick the dirt tight at top of crowbar
hole, and it Ss ready to light. One man
can easily prepare, load and fire twen
ty holes in an hour. If the ground ls
very wet' the dirt will be scattered
far and wide, but with the ground in
fair condition you will loosen the earth
for from three to five feet in diameter
and one or two feet in depth, making
a perfect bed for the roots to grow in,
and making the setting a much easier
job than the hole flus in the ordinary
way. Some people are afraid of the
stuff, but we have used it lor several
years for blowing rocks. We are care
ful in handling it, and believe anyone
who is not naturally careless can soon
learn to handle it with comparatively
perfect safety. If you are afraid of it
there is usually some one in the neigh
borhood who understands it and will
use it, but such men are rather prodi
gal in using it, and we find we can do
as good work ourselves and save lots
of dynamite-Rural New Yorker.
I wish to make an alfalfa sugges
tion and give a few hints. There is an
impression that alfalfa is slow to start,
and that it is difficult to grow it I
have raised alfalfa for ten years, and
I find it the fastest grower of any of
the clovers, and the most hardy. Of
course, if it is sown on "foul" ground,
the weeds may shade it, and rob it
of needed moisture, and it may be a
failure. The suggestion that I wish to
make is that your readers try alfalfa
on bluegrass sod ground. Don't be
afraid to plow up the best Kentucky
bluegrass you have to sow alfalfa. It
will pay you. It will only temporarily
check your bluegrass from growing;
and, you will soon have a full crop of
both bluegrass and alfalfa, on the
same ground, at the same time. Plow
the sod without a jointer, so the blue
grass will come up between the fur
row slices. Harrow the ground thor
oughly, after rolling. Sow twenty
pounds best . alfalfa seed per
acre. Don't buy cheap seed, buckhorn
or dodder in it, or you will have
trouble. Harrow to cover the seed. If
crust forms after the seed has ger
minated, (or before, for that matter),
roll to break the crust and to conserve
moisture. By the time alfalfa has
started well, you will notice the blue
grass, and you will soon have the best
pasture in the w~rld. Alfalfa ls a
deep feeder as well as a feeder on nit
rogen of the air. Bluegrass is a sur
face feeder, and they seem to help each
other. This mixture makes good hay
too, if cut early before bluegrass rip
ens. About nine times in ten alfalfa
growers are apt to think their alfalfa
is too thin, and they plow it up be
fore it has a chance to show what
it can do. Some also think it is "froz
en out" and that it will not pay to let
it stand. I would say don't be In a
hurry to plow up thin alfalfa. The
alfalfa- plants require plenty of room
to do their best. If you have one plant
on every square foot your alfalfa, ls
too thick. If the plants are two foot
apart don't be discouraged, but after
one year old disk thoroughly using
three or four horses and have a steel
frame spike tooth harrow attached to
disk to smooth and pulverize the soil.
The teeth of harrow should be slanted
backward. This cultivation will kill
weeds and will make the alfalfa grow,
until you can notice the ground be
fore harvest time. Alfalfa that is
raised out of the ground three or four
inches by frost will grow if the spring
is at all favorable, so do not be in a
hurry about plowing up alfalfa- J. N.

The Art of Dining.
The Delineator for September
marks the initial appearance of Jean
Marie Devaux as ita culinary editor.
M. Devaux is considered one of the
greatest living authorities on mattera
pertaining to culinary art and science.
In his initial talk, ''The Perfect Din
ner/; he says- "It is a loug step
from the absurd and vulgar dissipa
tions of the table to the perfection of
the delicate art of dining as it is now
practiced by lovers of nice eating.
Thus, what diner today would be
guilty of studying how td prolong his
menu:rather than how to perfect it,
and yet the ancient gourmands fail
ed to realize that this is the first rudi
ment of the art of eating.- To weary
the palate with excessive feeding is
as undesirable as it is to nauseate it
with improperly cooked foods. Both
are responsible for indigestion." He
then goes on to treat of the hors

COULD NOT KEEP UP.
Broken Down, Like Many Another,
With Kidney Troubles.
Mrs. A. Taylor, of Wharton, N. J.,
says: "I had kidney trouble in Its
most painful and severeform, and the
torture I went through
now seems to have
been almost .unbear
able.- I had back
ache, pains in the side
and loins, dizzy spells
and hot, feverish
pains, and the kidney
secretions passad too
frequently, and .with a burning sen
sation. They showed sediment. I
became discouraged, weak, languid
and depressed, so sick and weak that
I could not keep up. As doctors did
not cure me I decided to try Doan's
Kidney Pills, and , with such success P
that my troubles were all gone after
using eight boxes, and my strength,
ambition and general health is fine." '
