One of the big differences between

most of his critics get nothing for theirs.

Age is evidently no bar to a North
Carolina man's political ambitions. We
notice that a man who was a member of
the University of North Carolina foot
ball team when it licked Virginia is
running for lieutenant governor up

is that he was a member of the team
that licked Virginia. He'll be elected.
Congressman K i t c h i n, Democratic
leader of the lower house of congress,
is opposed to President Wilson's arma
ment plan, and it is the opinion of many
other public men that a nation founded
on liberty; a nation whose people have
recognized the principle that "govern
ments derive their just powers from the
consent of the governed;" a nation that
seeks no territory of other people and
has no desire for colonial possessions
such a nation has no need for a big navy
nor a big standing army.

Well as I didn't get to ser you
last week I will do like you told
merand write you some more
about that fair trip what I taken
Well, Bill, I told you about
getting there and finding a place
to stay. Well, I got up soon
Thurs. morning and got ready
to go out to the fair grounds.
You know Thurs, was the big
day, Bill, and there shore was
some people there. It was said
there was 50 thousand people
and a good many Chas.tonians
in the city, but Bill, I bedinged
if I see how they counted 'em.
Well, Bill, the street cars was
so crowded I decided to go out in
a automobile. You know there
aint nothing like putting on
style when you go to town no
how. Well I found a empty
automobile and just as I was
getting in up come two more fel
lows what wanted to go so they
got on the same seat with me.
One of 'em had on a plug hat,
Bill, and I found out they was
preachers. That shore did em
barrass me, Bill, cause I didn't
have a bit of sen-sen and I was
shore scared. But it was ok.
They didn't ask me for a thing..
Well, Bill, I got inside the
fence and started to follow the
crowd. We got to the door of a
big building and a fellow was
there giving away chewing
gum. I didn't take none at
first, Bill, because I hadn't saw
anybody giving away anything
down there before and I thought
maybe this was one of them
skin games you was telling me
about. But I hung around there
awhile and saw everybody else
taking it so I went hack and got
me some. Then I'd slip back
out and get me some more as I
come back in, Bill. It took me
a good while to get my pockets
full, but at last I did.
Then I went on down the lane
looking at the exhibits and down
at the next corner there was a
cripple fellow sitting in a little
chair. His feet looked like they
was in a awful fix and his legs
was all drawed up an looked
like they was tied together.
And, Bill, I noticed he held out
his hand and there was a hand
ful of dimes and nickles in it. I
thought he was giving it away,
Bill, like that chewing gum fel
low was, and I got me some of
'em and walked on. Well, Bill,
I hadn't walked far before some
body touched me not light on
the shoulder and when I looked
around I saw it was the cripple
fellow and he said give him that
money back that the people give
it to him cause he couldn't walk.
I told him he ought to give me
that for curing him, but I give
it back to him. Bill, he had a
sti'ck in his hand.
WellJ Bill, after I taken ini all
the exhibits I wvent to where the
side shows was. The first one'
I come to there was a man and
several women out in front of ir
a-singing and hollerin and izoing
on1, and1 they- called it the choo
choo or something like that, Bill,
I forget the name. Well. Bill,
I didn't go in this one. Tlhere
wvas too b)ig a scrouge.
Well, Bill, I went on (down to
the next one and it looked just
about like the other one, only it
wasn't the same name. I didn't
go in this one neither, Bill. It
was nearly time for the footb~all
game now. Bill. so I decided I'd
wait till later to go to the side
shows, but 1 walked on dlown
past a long row of them, and,
Bill, there was a man standing
in front of every show with a
big funnel in his mouth trying
to play a tune op it. it must be
a new fashioned tune. I never
did understand it.
Well, Bill, I went to the foot
ball game, but will tell you
about that when I see you. ~I'll
tell you how it come out too.
I hear the old sows raising
the dickens, Bill, so I'll has e to
go see what's the matter with
them and wvill close. Solong,
As ever' and ever, 0
P. S. A lot of fellows wantedl
to go to the asylum and peniten
tiary, Bill, but I neyer went to
neither place. You know we
have already been to both. 0

Too Many Laws
The other day we heard a fellow say
that between. the legislators and the
agitators about the only liberty a poor
man had left was to go to all-day sing
ngs. I t looks that way, and we wouldn't
:e a bit surprised if some legistator
Joesn't try to abolish the all-day sing
ings next January.-Pickens Sentinel.
And there are those who would not
permit us to whistle. Everything must
be regulated by law these days. And
the trouble with it all is that there are
so many foolish laws that the best of
citizens violate- some law every day and
it results in a disgust and disregard for
allI law, and Ilaawlessness follows. -New
