Liquor on the^Trains.
We do not know that the New
Haven Road claims any extra
unount of virtue by reason of ?tx
tction in discontinuing the sale of
iquor on its trains. It is in. a class
with the newspapers Uiat havu re
cently cut out whiskey advertising]
and deserves lid credit. Public
sentiment forced the action in each
instance. The New Haven Road
..ould not get license to sell as. its
trains ran through Massachusetts,
,Connecticut and Rhode Island, and
has concluded to conduct its busi
ness "strictly in conformity with
the laws of these Stales." We be
lieve the Southern Railway was the
Hrst in the country to stop the traf
fic on its Pullmans, and that was
\ears ago before the State went
dry. The Pennsylvania, which ran
the most popular bar room iu the
country between Washington and
New York and which made money
at the traffic, quickly fellowed suit.
In neither case was a protest made
by the traveling public. On the
contrary, the railroad? were goner
ally commended. Selling whiskey
on tha train was one of the Western
customs that came East, and the
first knock it received was from
South a Carolina. The State was
engaged in the whiskey traffic on
its own hook and when the railroads
began selling liquor on the cars
passing through, the law was in
voked against an infringement ol
South Carolina's patent rights, and
the buffets had lo be lucked on
Mains within the borders of that
State. Prohibition counties fo -
lowed snit and so much trouble
ensued that the railroads were at
last glad to stop the whole busi
ness. Now the Western railroad
companies are getting tired of il
and 25 railroads operating in Illi
nois alone have stopped the traffic.
Drinking on the trains will be soon
coufined to the incorrigibles who
will persist in carrying a lickeler in
their grip.-Charlotte Observer.
Tribute From a Neighbor.
We weep on account of the loss of
another member of our community,
Miss Genie Fair. It can scarcely Le
realized that her kind face will not be
seen again. In the peaceful hours ol
Monday morning, she was called tc
meet her maker. She was a devout
Christian, having united with Herns'
Creek Church in early life. She hat
been a patient sufferer for about ?
year, but bore it with beautiful pa
tience and fortitude.
She was laid to rest in the village
cemetery and we left her among tl e
flowers to sleep the sleep that kno\ s i

Study With the Children.
We find this incident in an ex
change: "An uneducated man, de
ploring his lack of early> advant
liree, was in the habit of taking hin
little son on his lap at night to hear
his lessons. He followed the boy
through all of bis high school work
and is today an educated man
through giving the child continued
sympathy in his studies." Thou
sands of men have almost educated
themselves in this way. Why not
