What ho, the fireman is a guy, or so in truth -tis said,
who sometimes fails in peace to lie within his little. bed
when other bugs untroubled snooze all through the murky
night, arid he would not unlikely choose, the same stunt if
he might. But at an early morning hour when slumber
hath great charm, the firebell rings with strident power,
and fills him with alarm. In haste he' climbs into his shirt,
most likely wrong side out, and hastily kicks up the dirt,
to see what's broken out. And oft, upon a winter morn,
with snow on street and farm, he beats it through the
breaking dawri, for but a 'false alarm.
Odds bodkins, liremen are a tribe, whom nothing can
dismay ; no flowery speech may half describe so keen a
bunch as they. When flames leap from the shingle roof,
and all seems sure to burn, and I, a simple-minded goof,
in haste from there adjourn, the hook and ladder crew
arrives, with sirens going strong, and soon, before the
neighbors' wives, the fire is in dead wrong. What though
my trundle-bed floats out, assisted by the hose? In glee
I give a mighty shout, though in my evening clothes, for
they have saved my humble roost, which I had thought
would burn, and evermore that bunch I'll boost, until the'
WARD SPEAKS TO
CROWD AT CAMDEN
Is Strong for the League of Nations,
or Says He Is
The Hon: Hallet S Ward, aspirant for
congressional nomination in this district,'
in a speech at the Welcome celebration
given at Comden Court House Saturday,
Sept 20 in honor of Comden's returned
soldiers, paid tribute to the excellent
record of North Carolina soldiers in
the Great War, and incidently referred in
eulogistic terms to the veterans of the
Civil aWr, stating that the best crop
of a decade was raised in the South dur
ing the year 1865, just after the close
of that bloody struggle.
After meritoriously doing his duty by
the soldiers, Ward plunged into the main
part of his speech, which was devoted
to a discussion of the successive steps
by which our present government was
formed, and later to a condemnation of
secret treaties, secret diplomacy, and
secrecy in general. In this connection
he endorsed the League of Nations plan,
in that it proposes to do away with all
brands of reprehensible secrecy The
right of the people to say when they
will go to war, and the consequent guar
antee of peace between the great nations
of the world for all time, would be the
rsult, according to the Hon Hallet, of
abolishing secret diplomacy, and letting
the people decide directely upon matters
of war and peace.
In the course of his remarks on the
different peoples who settled the va
rious American colonies in the early
Colonial days, Ward made a ludicrous
blunder by solomnly announcing that
South Carolina was settled by the Hot
tentots, who, as is generally known, are
a Negroid race of South Africa, and who,
when they came to America, did so only
at the gentle suggestion of Yankee slave
drivers, and by the efficacious persuasion
of exceedingly keen lashes and marlin-
spikes. This error Ward promptly cor
rected, however, naming the proper peo-
per people, namely, the Huguenots, who
left France to escape the persecution,
pf the Catholics. Everything considei
ed, Ward's speech was a good argument
in behalf of th abolishment of secret
diplomacy, and t was particularly well
received by those of his hearers who
have not heard the other side of the
League of Nations question.

WANTS PREACHER WHO
DOESN'T LOVE WOMEN
Mt. Lebanon Has Another Pastor To Go
Wrong And Is Tired of That Sort
Sit. Lebanon A. M. E. Zion Church of
Elizabeth City is seeking a pastor who
doesn't love women. Mt. Lebanon, the
wealthiest and most fashionable Negro
congregation in Elizabeth City has- a lot
year ago its pastor Rev. Heuston H.
of trouble with erotic preachers. A few
Wells absconded with the church funds
and took along with him the wife and
daughters of one of his stewards. Now
the Rev. Geo. Ii. White, for several
years pastor, has departed for parts un
known after having gotten one of the
young sisters in trouble. And the re
markable thing about it was that the
Rev. White got his congregation tQ raise
funds for him to put the girl in hiding.
He pretended that he wanted money to
take a vacation. With . this money he
sent the girl to Norfolk. The money
didn't go far enough and the girl, at the
point of death, told on White.
And so Mt. Lebanon is again minus a
pastor and hopes to find one who has a
wife who can keep him at home. The
next pastor will have to refrain from
all afternoon visiting and will be accom
panied to choir practices, ladies aid so
ciety and other feminine functions by a

an announcement from the Bureau. In
addition, the Government is paying 1,
157 compensation claims to residents of
the State, and is meanwhile investigat

claims which are rapidly being adjusted.
The total insurance claims which the
Bureau will be called upon to pay will

In last week's issue of this news-
paper appeared the statement of Da-
vid Swain, recently an inmate of the
Pasquotank County Home, to the
effect that he had been in the Coun-
ty Home ten days, in constant need
of medical and surgical attention,
and had been visited by the County
Physician, Dr. Zenas Fearing, only
once in the ten days
This' newspaper learns that this
statement is false, that Dr. Fearing
did attend Swain's case on at least
three occasions and that at other
times Swain received every treat-
ment and care that his case demand-
ed. This newspaper regrets the un-
just publicity given Dr. Fearing and
while making this correction will go
further and say that Mrs. A. J.
Bailey, Matron of the County Home,
testifies that Dr. Fearing is always
prompt -and faithful in his attention
to charity cases- And Mrs. Bailey's
word is as good as gold bond.
The troubje with Swain seems to
seems to be that he has developed
a long list of kindly disposed people
in town who keep him supplied with
money, clothing and food and he pre-
fers living upon them to living- up 0
