Glenn Governor of North Carolina,
has taken a vigorous stand to put
down the mob spirit in his State.
To this end he has just issued the
f,To the People of North Carolina,
TJp until a few weeks ago and for
'four- 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 hands and by
violence and with strong hands have
overthrown the law, and wilfully and
deliberately committed murder by
lynching persons confined iu jail, lu
none of these instances was there the
slightest excuse for these acts, for in
all cases special terms have been or
dered and in one case the eourt was
aotually sitting and trying the pris
oners. Such acts breed contempt of
law, bringing the courts into dire
pute, and put a blot on the good name
of the State. To stop these disgrace
fid occurrences and to protect all
prisoners, no matter who they are, I
have issued the following order to
all the sheriffs of. the State, aud to
those in command of the State troops:
To the Sheriff of - county,
In the future, whenever a 113* crime
ls committed im your county, use ey?
erymeans in your power to arrest the
offenders and bring.them to trial. Af
ter their arrest and confinement in
your jail, if you hear of any threats
or rumors of violence, yon will at
once notify me, giving all facts, to
the end that! may take such steps as
to me seem expedient. I also hereby
direct you to notify the^captain .of
the nearest military company of* said
rumor and order him to be in readi-.
"nc-s'to-'aid you in ease-of need. You
also have the power to summon and
arm all citizens as a posse comitatus.
If, after this, violence'is attempted.
I hereby command you- to order out
the military company and the posse
and have them armed ami ready for
duty. You will then make proclama
tion aud 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 and put in jail all such
persons engaged in said mob to the
end that they may bc prosecuted and
punished according to law. 1 have
confidence in the iutergrity of the
civil officers aud .count on their co
op?ration with me in suppressing all
Herein fail not but obey this or
To Captain -, Company -y
North Carolina National Guard:
^Sir: Hereafter in ease at any time
you hear of au attrnpt at violence
by mob law. you are hereby com
manded to report the facts to me,
and also notify the sheriff of the
county where the violence is threat
ened, of your readiness to tender him
your services. In the event you 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
order peacefully. If ihe sheriff, af
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 carry out this order. This is a gen
eral order, in force now and hereaf
ter until countermanded, and of it
you will take notice and act accord
ingly. R. B. GLENN,
Governor and Comander in Chief.
Thc. above orders show, my desire
to preserve law and to protect the
State, but even these efforts will be
futile unless all good citizens of the
State will aid in them. i Law-abiding
people should keep out of the mob,
render it no assistance or sympathy
directly or indirectly, usc every ef
fort in their power to get it to dis
perse and should willingly help the
officers in the discharge of their duty.'
Remember every effort will always

the courts and juries fail to do their

through proper channels every re
source will be adopted to punish the
guilty parties, for. thus degrading jus

The newspapers with their means

papers of the State, daily and week

write strong editorials calling on their
people to assist in maintaining T the
law. I have confidence in the people
and the press, the officials, both*;civil

Good Colors 3"or Houses.
It is not gsnarally. known-not

knowledge of just what 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 tho
sun will protect a house better than
those which allow thefce rays to pass
through the Aim.
Thus red is a good color becnuse
it turns back, or reflects, the" red
rays?, and the red rays are the hot
lu general, therefore, the warm
tones are good and the cold tones are
poor, so far as wear is concerned.

Lazy Fowl6 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 ot
strawberry plants fully one-half-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, whirh 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 the planter. He
finds the 12-tool 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
Tants receive one or two cultivations
and hoeings, they will start blooming.
The blooms should be picked off at
once. ' " '
. 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
the 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
it 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 pf 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 it
cheaper. Dynamite was the power
and it makes digging sport, rather
than hard, tiresome labor, as it was
before. Wc experimented with vaiy
ing quantity and degrees and found
that one-fourth of a stick 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 inserte.i
tho crowbar about fourteen inches and
into this hole we put the one-fourth
cartridge with cap and about eighteen
inches of fuse. Thea, 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 is
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,
ami making the setting a much easier
job than the hole t'.ug in the ordinary
way. Some people are afraid of the
stuff, hut we have used it for 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 ?.he v/orld. Alfalfa is 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 is
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 ia
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.
S., in the Indiana Farmer.

The Art of Dining.
The Delineator for September
marks the initial appearance of Jean
Marie Devaux as its 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 long 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 bow td prolong his
menu:rather than bow to perfect it,
and yet the ancient gourmands fail
ed to realize that this is the first rudi
ment of the art of ealing.- To weary
thc 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

Broken Down, Like Many Another,
With Kidney Troubles.
Mrs. A. Taylor, of Wharton, N. J.,
aays: "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 passed too
frequently, and .with a burning sen

BABY COVERED WITH SORES,

less Hands Were Tied-"Would Have
Died But For Cutlcura."
"My little son, when about a year and
a half old, began to bare sores come out
on his face. 1 had a physician treat him,
but tho sores grew worse. Then they be
gan to come on bia arma, then on other
part? of bia body, and then one came on
his chest, worse than the others. Then 1
called another physician. Still he grew
worse. At the end of about a year and a
half of suffering he grew so bad 1 had to
tie his banda in cloths at night to keep
him from scratching the sores and tearing
the flesh. He got to be a mere skeleton,
and was hardly able to walk. My aunt
advised me to try Cutieura Soap and Oint
ment. 1 sent to tre drug store and got a
cake of the Soap and o box of the Oint
ment, and at the end of about two months
the sores were all well. He has never had
any tores ot any kind since. He ia nov/
