The DURHAM RECORDER.
Semi-Weekly. EVERY TUESDAY AND FRIDAY. By ZEB. P. COUNCIL. ESTABLISHED . 0. Entered as second class natter August g, 1903, at the postoffice at Durham, N. C., under the act of Congress of March 1, 1879. Subscription Rates : One year fio Six months 50 cents rhree months ascents Rates for advertising made known on application. DURHAM, N. C.Feb. 12, 1907. After Durham county had witnessed one legal Ihanging, it was not long before another took place. Wonder if the present legis lature will allow the railroads to make enough profits to pay dam age suits. If they fail to do this they will find a kick coming from quite a number of people. SHORT LOCAL ITEllS. Durham county can say no longer that she has never had a hinging. John H. Hodges and Freeman Jones have paid for their crimes the dearest price they had. There were some that thought possibly the negro should have been sent to prison for life, and that there was some excuse i)T the crime which Hodges com mitted. After looking at the matter when they have both been executed, there seems no room for the delay of justice in either cise. Hodges admitted killing his wife, that he went there with Jhat intention, nor have we seen any statement where he express ed regret for his action. Free man Jones confessed that he would have committed Ja worse rime than the one for which he was hanged, if he had not been icared away. Both men say that liquor was the cause of their crime, which may be true, but we are of the'opinion that liquor only gave them the nerve to do what they did, especially as Hod ges stated that he drank whiskey after he reached the house on the night he committed the mur der. We have little patience with the idea that men commit ail sorts of deviltry because they are drunk, but believe that whiskey only helps the low prin cipal that is in a man to come to the surface.

Some improvements are being made on the front of the store occupied by Mark Switzer on Main street, which will add much to the front of his store. Dr. A. Cheatham! has return ed from Brevard, where he was called on account the illness of his brother.! The! condition of his brother was somewhat better when he left him. Miss Hattie Page, daughter of L.

A contract has been let for the improvement of the store now occupied by Mrs. L. Perkinson as millinery store. While this work is going on the store will be doing business upstairs. Were glad to have L. T. O'Brien of Northside call to see us last week. He is one of the staunchest friends of The Re corder, and always speaks a good word for us when the opportuni ty presents itself. J. M. Bennett, who has been appointed superintendent of the Southern railway, with offices in Durham, has moved his family to Durham. The new Train master, Mr. Briggs, has also moved his family to Durham. Register of Deeds Markham re ceived last Saturday a mortgage to be recorded that was almost a book in size. It contained 86 printed pages and covers a mort gage given by the Seaboard Air Line railway I for $75,000,000. The fee for reccrdingt his paper was $32.00. Much has been said and writ ten about men's rights, especially regarding the sale of whiskey in certain places. In Durham no whiskey is legally sold because a majority of the voters oft! i i city Guard aod Inmate Etirnel Last Saturday morning Miss Anna Hopkins, an inmate of the county home, came near losing her life. The cause was that she was passing near the fire and her ctothing caught.

Mr. A. W. Horton and' Mr. E. Hobgood, of Durham, mem bers of the Junior and Sophomore classes and of the Hespf rian and Columbian societies, will repie- sent Trinity in her first annual debate with the University of ennessee. This debate will be in Knoxville, Tenn., and will he leld on the evening of April 5, which is Good Friday. Mr. A. Wissburg, of the Junior class, is alternate. The preliminary whereby these men were' selected was held last Saturday evening in the Y. M. C. A. hall from 7:30 till 9:30. he meeting was presided over by rof. A. C. Mcintosh, and the committee of judges consisted of Prof. W. H. Pegram, Dr. W. II. Glasson, ?nd Dr. v. k. Boyd. Six men took part in the contest and each was allowed fifteen minutes on his first speech and five on the rejoinder. Though like all other occasions of the kind in most respects the debate was remarkable in one eature, viz., the speakers were ery nearly matched with each other. The speeches they made were all uniformly good, and the selection of the best two was by no means an easy task for the committee of judges. One feature that the debate was lacking was that the audience was not quite as large as it was on the ast occasion of this kind, but all those that did attend were well Daid and enioved the occasion very much. The following query, which Trinity will have the affirmative side of when she meets the Uni versity of Tennessee, was used in he preliminary: 'Resolved. That the will of the people operates more effect ively upon the administration of government under the English Cabinet Svstem than under the Presidential Svstem of America." On the affirmative appeared Messrs. C. E. Phillips, E B. Hob- good, A. L. Wissburg, and F. S. Love. On the negative were Messrs. A. V. Horton and W. G Terome. One sDeaker and the alternate, it will be seen, were on the same side, and on the side which Trinity will defend in the final battle. Mr. Horton was the successfu contestant in the Sophomore de bate last spring. This will be the first appearance tor both young men in an intercollegiate debate, Two of the speakers who were in the race at the beginning with drew before the prtliminaiy. Mr. II. K. S pence, who w is the alter nate of the Yanderbilt debate anc was looked upon as likely to be one of the representatives against Tennessee, resigned from the con test on assuming the pastorate of j Kpworth Church at Raleigh, and Mr. A.J. Tempkton also deemed it bet not to speak Saturday evenincr. The six men spoke with enthusiasm and ro.-c a number of times to much warmth and elo- juencc, with the result that the audience was greatly divided in its opinion of the two men who made the best appearance. The Trinity Chronicle. ..,IIWIItt.--. The series of lectures under the auspices of the Avera School of Biblical Litcrafire will be deliv ered this year by Dr. Wilbur F.

Flowers and Weed. The prettv teacher was trying to explain, the difference between good conduct and bad. "Good actions," she explained, "are the lovely flow ers'. Bad ones are the weeds. Xow can any little boy or girl tell nie the difference between flowers and weeds ? What are flowers ? What are weeds ?" "Weeds," said Walter, who had been struggling with the sorrel in lis mother's garden, "are the plants hat want to grow, ami flowers ar the ones that don't." It never speaksyet it talks. It circulates freely- yet it keeps in hiding. ; It's the ruination of millions; It lifts millions out of thedepths of despair. It comes with promise of glad ness. It leaves many disappointment.
