The sentiment of reverence and

soldier on the' part of the younger
people as Is shown on occasions like
that of Thursday is one of the most
beautiful traits of the peopla of the

THE e.lLLAXT ELKS.
The act of the local club of Elks
in throwing open their doors to the
women of the city, shows a broadly
gallant spirit on the part of this ex
cellent order. The order is rapidly
becoming the center of the social as
well as the commercial activities of
the whole city, a place which it de
serves to occupy by reason of the un
selfishly hospitable and patriotic spir

THE RIGHT OF l'EDESTRIASS TO
The menace to life and limb by rea
son of reckless drivlngon the streets
of Durham grows more and more
serious every day. Drivers of auto
mobiles and other vehicles seem to
have lost all sense of the right of
pedestrians to life to say nothing of
the pursuit of "happiness. Traffic on
Main street is always crowded and
drivers of automobiles and heavy
truck wagons act as if they were ut
terly oblivious of the presence of
lighter vehicle and pedestrians. Al

day of the fair on a guarantee-to-fly
basis, the aviator to be Lincoln
Beachey or Hugh hobinson. Beachey
Is the birdman who flew under the:
bridge at Niagara, while Hobinson
did likewise at Cairo, 111., under a;
railroad bridge over the Ohio. These
two were the only flyers to finish in
the cross-country race from New J
York to Philadelphia, and both were;
stars at the Chlcsgo aviation meet,
where Beachey made a new record'
for altitude 11.578 feet. j
Another attraction mentioned is
Calfornia Frank's wild west show:
with its fifteen carloads and 200 pco-l
pie. Then there Is the Great Calvert,
star high-wlra specialist.
Special mention is made of the
miraculous painting, "In the Shadow,
of the Cross," to be exhibited for'
the first time In the south. It hns
figured at the great world exposi
tions and been a topic of discussion j
among clergymen and scientists. j
But aside from all this the little
book is valuable for the Information
it contains, and is well worth pre
serving. SOUTH C.USOI.IXA POLITIC.
The attention of the whole country
has been attracted to the affairs
political In South Carolina during the
past few ye.iis.by reason of the dis
grace that has been brought upon

Justice Ira R. Jones that be will I?

of the chief Justice, the Charleston
