old Senator James H. Berry has been
defeated in the State primary, and
Davis's nomingtion by the Democratic
party is believed to be equivalent to

Old age-is honorable because it is

It is by right living, by obedient
observance of the laws of nature, that
we not only live to be old, but seem
to be younger than we really are.. It
is just as much a matter of pride for
one to look and feel like 40 at 60 as
it is for one to be hale at 90.
Though there - is no disgrace in
growing old, there is decided incon
venience in it, economically, physi
cally and socially. The woman who
feels 40 naturally does not like to be
classed \and associated with women
who feel 60. If she is bright and young
in spirit she wants to continue to be

to observe anywhere, in any connee

both p)apetrs htave the stanza inceor
reetly quoted. The Observor is cor
meet, in saying that it is a Carolinn
nrodutction: it wvas wvritte'n by a mar
from Nubbin Ridge, Rockinghan
Colity, and is hear'd here"to this .ay,
and this'is how it runs:
'You go dowin new-cut road,
I'll go down lane,
If you get there 'fore I do,
Kiss old Liza Jane.'
''This is 'it'--the orignal produc
tion; it had a chorus which we could
repeat, but this is quite enough; it
clinches the whole .business."
It is with great diffidence that we
record a difference with a peper us
nally so accurante as The Greensboro
Record, particularly in matters of
classic literature and more, particu
larly still in matters of poetry and
s'ng. But it is certainly wrong in
this instance. We are not blaming it;
God forbid. In view of the exciting
events which are so constantly occur
ring in its town it is to be pardoned
for an occasional lapse of memory
and a certain degree of mental alien
ation. But the facts must be kept
straight. The Observer stands pat
with The Times-Dispatch on this ver
sion of the poem and insists that all
others are base imitations
'' 'I went up the new-cut road,
She come down the lane;
I axed Liza Jane to marry me;
She axed me wan't I shame.
I turned my back upon her side
0, g' long, Liza Jane.'
Tle Hecord, in its confused mental
states, has no doubt. gotten this new
eut poem confused with another,
which opens thus:
''As I went up the new-cut road
I met a tarrapin and a toad;
Everv time the toad would sing
The tarrapin cut the pigeon wing.
If tIhe truth is ever known it will
no doubt be found that this is the
real Nubbin Ridge product. Col.
R1eece will please pull himself togeth
er and appeal to his better memory.
