The DURHAM RECORDER.
Semi-Weekly. EVERY TUESDAY AND FRIDAY. By ZEB. P. COUNCIL. ESTABLISHED 1820. Entered as second class matter August B, 1903, at the postoffice at Durham, N. C. , nnder the act of Congress of March V 1879- Subscription Rates : One year fi.oo Six months 5 cents Three months 5 cents Rate$for advertising made known on application. DURHAM, N. C Feb. 1. 1907. It is little use to say that small boys should not be allowed to have a gun that is loaded pr a toy, for the majority of accidents are not due to small boys hand ling guns carelessly, but grown uppeople usually that know about them are the ones that didn't know it was loaded. If those suits in court and others that have been compro mised, together with others that will likely be brought on account of our sewerage system, all go against the city another bond is sue for that purpose will only payoff the damages, and the work on them will not be com pleted. There is little doubt that if the present laws were enforced many criminals that escape would be behind prison bars, but when you consider plain justice and apply it without fear or favor, it is a serious matter, and in many cases men that make good citi zens would serve time on the chain gang. Some of those towns that are after enlarging their population! by taking in more territory, had better figuie on whether the ex tra people will be sufficient on the tax books for the buildfcs cf streets and sidewalks, or they may find they have "a larger farm than they can work and keep the grass out of. About the time you think you have things fixed so that they need no more work along comes something to up-set it all and the work you have done all amounts to very little, in fart it would be easier to build right from the start. Especially is this true in city improvements, as there are few streets fixed that are not soon torn up for some improve ment that is needed. the welfare of the people gener ally it is only two years when you will have the opportunity of choosing another man to go there and change what he did, The way of the rich man is a hard one. Recently it was pub lished in a number of papers that VV. K. Vanderbilt was a tax dodger, saying in New York that his home was in North Car olina and in North Carolina that his home was in New York, and the tax collectors in the two states gave it to the press that they were investigating arhd would see that he paid what taxes he was due. All this was done simply because a few rich men have dodged their taxes, and we are not saying that they should not pay all they are due, but just suppose such a cry should be raised even in the locl paper about some citizen in Durham of ordinary means failing to list his taxes, what would be the result. In nine cases out of ten the editor would have to make a public apology or fight said citizen. SHORT LOCAL ITEMS. In about two week, unless there is a change in the degree of the court, which Is not likely at this writing. Durham will wit ness what has never occurred since it was a countya hanging. Two men are to be hanged on that day, one white and the other colored. Our readers are famil iar with the crimes, and gener ally shaking there are few peo ple but b.'!;eve they are getting justice. It is a serious matter and the effect will no doubt put people that carry guns around with them and are so ready to resent some supposed insult to thinking and it may be the cause of many guns being left at home where they belong. THE .SLOT) AY SCHOOL LESSON V, FIRST QUARTER, INTERNA TIONAL SERIES, FEB. 3. The petition business is being overworked in many instances, and especially is this true while the legislature is in session. All sorts of petitions find their way to this office, and later find their way to the waste basket. All manner of calamities are pre dicted if certain things are done by the legislature, and news papers and citizens are expected to spend their time writing their representative setting forth the many evil results from such laws if passed. It causes one to won der why he w orked to elect such an ignoramous to the legislature anvway. If the man you voted for to ko to the legislature has Cotton, Thursday, January. 31, Hi cents. Want a good knife? See terms on third page. Clifton Mangum, son of D. C. Mangum, has secured a position at Ennis, Texas, and left for that place this week. Be sure and look up the change of ad of C.

The Durham Water company are now back in their new quart ers, which have recently been fitted up in good shap The bill by Mr. Manning in the legislature to allow Durham county to vote ror a bond issue of $300,000 passed in the legisla ture and is now a law. An architect is here working on the plans for new hospital to be erected on the sight near the present one. It is expected that the plans will be completed so that work may begin in the early spring. Gen. J. S. Carr has sent in a nice selection of books to the Durham public Library as is hi3 custom once every year. The latest gift of Gen. Carr consists of history, biography and literary productions. R. B. Boone and family left yesterday for their new home in the west, Pawhuska, Oklahoma. Baxter Boone, the oldest son, will remain here several days to settle up some buisness matters. He will probably leave Monday. A Good Mmry.

Memory Verse, 1-.1 Goldea Test, Pa. sxxvll, 8tf Commentary Pre pared bjr Rev. I. SI. Stearns. Copyright, by American Prest Anoditioa.) The story of Noah and tbe condition of affairs on earth in his day Is also epokeu of by our Lord, and in connee tton with tbe startling statement tbat the age In which we are uow living shall witnes at Its close the same un-. godliness that was manifest la tbe time of Noah (Matt xslv, 37-39; Luke xvll, 20, 27). lie who declares the end from tbe beginning and who Is Him self tbe beginning and tbe end, the first aud the last, whose counsel stands and who does all His pleasure, who brings to pass what He speaks and does all that He purposes (Isa. xlvt, 9-X1; Rev. xx, 13), has told us this, nnd It surely becomes us to give good heed to all that He has said. In tbe end of Gen. Iv we have the ungodly line of Cain traced for several generations down to Lamech, another j murderer and blasphemer and rebel j against Cod's plau of one woman for one man. In this ungodly line we have the first musicians and also the first j artificers In brass and iron. There need be nothing sinful about either of these, but It Is a sad fact that In our own time the highest talent on these and other lines is, as a rule, rather on the side of unbelief than of faith. In chapter v we have tbe first ten generations cf the godly line of Oeth, whom God gave to Eve, Instead of Abel, beginning with the words, "This Is the book of the generations of Adam." and In verse 3 it is said con cerning Seth tbat Adam begat a son In his own likeness after bis image. Since sin came all have been born in the like ness of sinful man, not In tbe likeness of God. Contrast Matt 1, 1, "The book of the generation of Jesua Christ." It la only when we receive Him that we are bora of God and UU image begins to be formed In us. Chapters vl to lx, in which wa have but one lesson, tell of the consumma tion of iniquity in that age and Its overthrow, Noah and his family being tbe only people saved. By the union of the sons of God and the daughters of men. tbe godly and the ungodly, pos sibly fallen .meets and human beings, every Imagination of the thoughts of men's hearts became evil continually (rl, W2i, and men said unto God, "De part from us and what can the Al mighty dor (Job xxii. 17.) Then God gave Noah instructions to build an ark for the saving of his house, and be be lieved God and obeyed, thus obtaining righteousuess and condemning tbe world (Heb. xi, 7. A study of tbe three arks of Scrip ture and the object for which each was made is most instructive. Noah and Moses received most minute in structions how to build theirs, and we may safely conclude that Jochebed was Instructed also. In the tatrnacle and temple God was the sole architect and In all tbe plan of redemption man has no voice whatever. Theark being finished, the Lord called Noah and his bouse to come In. Consider the "comes" of Isa. I. 18; lv, 1; Matt. xl. 2S; Iter, xxii. 17, etc. Then there went la unto Noah Into the ark a male and female of all creatures aud of the clean creatures by wens, as the I.ord commanded. The Lord shut him in. the flood came as the Lord had said, and for one whole year and seventeen days they continued in tbe ark. Compare chapter viL 10, 11, with chapter viii. 13.14. What a time of faith and patience It must have been, but God was thinking of His servant irlil, 1). When days and weeks and months go by without any special evidence that God Is caring for us and He seems to have forgotten us. that Is the time for unwavering faith, remem bering His words to John the Baptist, T.hsd is he that shall not Ite offend ed In tne." It is profitable tonote that the word "pitch" in chapter vl. U. Is the very word generally translated atonement? ind reminds us that tha great atonement is that alone which can keep from perishing, but that by It all who are la it are as safe as God can make tl.eni.

Undergraduate journalism counts tor much in the life of those institutions which are ad mittedly at once the backbone of the land's present ptosperity and the safeguard of its future- prog ress. The college, papers hold auite as important a relation to the great world ot American stu dents as does the daily press to its practically uncountable clientele. The college is a State in little, and it is the undergraduate pub lication -which binds its parts together, exactly as the metropol itan daily binds into a tangible whole the multifarious interests of its community, its nation the entire habitable universe. The tons of clean paper, blackened day by day with the news of the student world, with his opinions of him self, with literature and fife as seen from his personal point of view, constitute a factor in the national life far too important not to receive both attention and large credit.
