' ' One of the men made mad by thp catastrophe : split open the skull of an injured survivor who approachedhim today for looting a ruined wine shop. Scores of men and women crazed by grief and hardship, are wandering a- bout the country, v a danger to I 'H- the living, for whose adequate pro tftil tection even she thousands of sol diers now on-the scene are insuf- flcient. Every village is now sui rounded by sentries, but despite their viirilance unsDeakable acts are committed by maddened ref ugees. Tonight the military re-" ceived orders to exterminate the bands of dogs and wolves which were preying on the dead. One of the most pitiful cases reported here is the case of a young man whose fiancee, buried in the i ruinscalled out to him to ave her if he loved her. All day fie.has been digging desperately at the wreckage, aided by the soldiers, who are moved to tears by his grief. Despite their efforts, there is no hopes of saving the girl, and her voice is gradually becoming inaudible The same , young manjtiad previously sav v ed himself, ms mother and his sis--ter from underneath the walls of his fai.en home, but could not find hisaged father.

Two girls were saved from the ruins of the girls's school and many "of the pupils are still alive an J are call ing out to the military to save them. . - A royal commissioner has as sumed charge of the earthquake area and has ordered the soldiers not to dig into the ruins unless they hear the moans or cries of victims. Officers have been spec iflically detailed to find out the most likely spots for excava tion. In Avezzano, as a result of systematic exploration, 15 sur vivors were rescued. They- were all thoroughly exhausted and badly injured and several had to ,.i be operated upon, crushed arms and legs being amputated. V The ruins are now ominously : Bilent, and moans are now heard i :'i :only rarely. The burial of the dead has Deen nasienea ior. sani tary reasons.

A. question always worth the consideration of those interested m educating or in getting educa ted ii,' how is North Carolina pro tiding opportunity for. .hf j chil dren to become healthy and in telligent mien and women? Does she open a free way for their de velopment, or 4oes she stunt the the growth of body and mind by allowing them to work in factor ies?" -V--; ' . : -' Brought into the form- of .a debate query, .the questiQn is: "Besolfed; That North Carolina should enact a law prohibiting all children under 14 years of age froin working inany mill, factory df manufacturing plant." AFFIRMATIVE ARGUMENTS. 1. Child labor results in men tal and physical retardation and incomplete development, for A No time for play, one of the chief agents of development is given. B. Very little, if any, time is given for school ' : 0 .The work is "frequently car ried on in badly lighted unsani tary buDdings. i II. Child labpr.defeats the very object of its employment, for A It tends to industrial deter ioration, for in retarding the physical and mental growth of the child, it prevents him from beco;ming1a skilled laborer. III. Child labor is cheap labor, and cheap labor tends to po ver ty, for ' ." A The total income of a fam ily working in an industry that regularly employs child labor is almost always less than that of a family working in an industry that employs only adults. IV. Child labor is detrimental to society hi general, for It promotes crime, for . work ing children contribute a much larger proportion of delinquents than do non-working children. B. It embitters the spirit of the child, Jor as it hinders his high est development as a citizen, It fills him, with., hatred of those whom uf considers responsible. V. It is contended that some forms of manufacture are depen dent upon child labor; but tho' child labor may be an economy and a convenienc it cannot be a it !i J ' 1 . necessujr iur any iorm oi jegic imate manufacture. ' VI. It is contended that the child offhe widow or the needy child should be allowed to work; button the contrary such chil dren should be given special pro tection so that their possibili- .ties for future maintenance may not bftftmited. n NEGATIVE ARGUMENTS. L Society absolutely : needs child labor in some forms of le gitimate manufacture, for A children are better fitted for some occupations than adults. It Many persons who are una ble to work or who cannot earn enough to support their fami lies, need the help -of their children.'.- ; c ; HI. Under" present educational conditions, North Carolina is bet ter with child labor than without it for y .

Recently three leading men spoke at the Men's meeting atCleve land on the subjectss, "Things I Wish 1 Had Know Before I was Twenty-One." G. Leonard Fels, the fi rst speaket, gave in by twen ty-two men. Here they are. Ev ery word is worth reading: 1. What I was ebinc- to do for a living, what my lifework would hp - 1 2. That in v health after thirty depended in a large degree on what I put into my stomach be- fore I was twenty-one. ' 3. v How to take care of money. 4.

The greatness of the oppor- tunity and joy of serving a fel- ries than idle, and out of school. IV. The proposed law does not do more than touch the edge of the child labor question for A. It prohibits child labor in "any mill, factory, or manufac turing plant tnd this does not extend to so-called protection over the thousands of child la bor workers ore the farms. o The number of children em ployed in niilli , factories and manafacturing plants is snail compared with. ' those employed on farms. for out of a total ol 84.27Q engaged in gainful pur- suits74,080 are engaged ia ag- "cul ture. - ' v Children in. mill communi ties are much better off t h a tt those who are era ployed in ' agri cultural work, for A North Carolina mill o.-nera have adopted the ijiacticeoif pro viding sanitary h( imes and Vthus the piuportion of those adve rse ly affected thro dgh work niust be small. i mPfctdTitar. The pistol toting, coupled with blindtiger whiskey, is one ot the crying evils of the day, none will gainsay. Letoue ol those ha bitual, cowardly, pistol-toter K xuiiBu up mix uiiuuu6 key and imagine that somebody has done him an injury and he forthwith snuffs out a life. Var- ious and sundry laws have been enacted against him but he-still flourishes. When one is convict- ed, as ageueral thing the presi- ding iW lets him off with; the payment or cose in tne case ana ne is armea again to resent any "insult" that may be offered him with a bullet. A bill is now , be fore the Legislature to impose a tax on the owner, of pistol equal to the poll tax, and impose a toe or fifty dollars and six moh'JM imprisonment on any one w.uo . .

This little not str0DK eQ0U word "shall" of course -would help Rome, for it will not let the sentence be discretionary with a judge, who fines in some instan ces and suspends in others. - The carrying of concealed weapons will never be checked until the punishment is made much heav ier than any yet proposed.

Democrat makes: "Whe should not only give our farms names, but those names should be neatly painted on a sign over each entrance, together with the name of theownerof the place. End while we are about it let's do another good job and give a name to every country church, schoolhouse, and ceme tery, and public place of every nature, and have the names of those conspicuously displayed." We believe that giving farms, schools, etc., such names and ad- uertising them would do a great Li i j. : i i and a desire to make them what they ought to be. The Progress ive Farmer.
