WM. H. STBWART, Bd. Mid Pub. Salisbury, N. C ,Mar 20 h, 1907. Published Every Wednesday at ISO West Innlss Street Subscription Price 91 P*r year strictly cash in advanoe Entered as second-class matter Jan. 10th. 1905, at the poet office at Salis bury, N. C., under th« act of Congress of March 9rd, 1997. Mr. Vanderford’s candidacy is now quite encouraging. The re cent rulings of the executive com mittee has greatly strengthened him. It is a strange thing that good citizens will vote for and support men for municipal office, that they would not think of trusting to handle thei? private business. There ought to be no trouble in finding suitable men in Salis bury for aldermanic timber. We have plenty of them in each ward and we should make it a point to select the best. If the Democracy would throw some of the little political pmsti tutes, it is now encumbered with, overboard, its voting strength would be materially increased there* y. But is this gag rule to continue till only the dictators remain? It is with great pleasure we note the appointment of Hayd e n Clement, Esq., of this city, to the position of Assistant Attorney General, a position created by the last legislature. Mr. Clement is a young man of many excellent qualifications and will no doubt fill the position in a very credita ble manner. The man who refuses to abide by the action of a party that steals his franchise, or allows it to be stolen, in its primary, and gives it to another, is more honorable and trustworthy than the little political prostitute who wears a boss’ collar that comes up so far above his ears that he cannot tell the difference between day and night. A noted English lawyer once remarked that he would under take to drive a coach and four through any act of parliament. One might almost do che same with the recorder bill. It is de cidedly ambiguous in places, is lo >sely worded, is susceptible of a variety of constructions, and with al, such a bill as a good lawyer would have no difficulty in tear ing all to pieces. It is a peculiar thing to see how some people will vote for a can didate- because a little curbing or a few shovels full of cinders, or sand, has been thrown on a pave ment near his residence. Why not elect a man who will do these things because it is his duty to do bo, not because he believes he is buying your votes with the city’s money. Citizens and taxpayers should be above such traffic. They should demand proper at tention to their streets and side walks and remain free to vote as their consciences dictate. It has been circulated that the friends of prohibition in Salis bury are making preparations for the purpose of holding an election in Salisbury at some early date. We do not doubt that these good people would gladly take advant age of any favorable opportunity that might present -itself. But after careful inquiry nothing can be learned of such a movement, in fact the report seems to have been circulated for reasons just the reverse, in other words to f lghten the bar men into a more determined fight against Mr. Van derford and thus possibly aid in Boydeu’s re-election. That is all there is in the story, merely a cheap piece of campaign bun combe, originated in a large, lurid vacuum and without sufficient vi tality to bear repeating. i Mi it ■n»»— Great stress has been laid on the alleged fact that the expense of a recorder’s court here will be but, $720 a year. This is mis leading. whether intentionally so or not, we do not know. The bill says the compensation of the re corder shall not be less than $60 per month, but there is nothing in the bill to prevent the alder men paying this official $5,000 a year, if they see fit to do so. Be sides this the bill provides for a recorder’s clerk, and he will have t > be paid. Thero is little need, we think, to worry over the mat ter, for it is doubtful if the meas ure will be carried at the election in May. However, when we at tempt to explain the provisions of ihe bill to the voters of the. city, it is just as well to state tacts and not draw on our imagination. As the Salisbury and Rowan Democracy is now constituted it can elect any candidate it may see fit to nominate^ It can elect a negro with convict Btripes on him as easily as our most reputa ble citizen, that is, if the party stands together, as it has, and votes for the nominee merely be cause he is labeled “Democrat,” This is a very dangerous position for a party controlled by corrup tionists to ge't into. This is why some exceedingly unworthy men were elected last fall, and, it will be the responsible factor if these fellows are ever re-elected. . The present efforts of those who are now daring - to make rules by which freemen must abide in or der to vote in the coming munici pal primary, is by no means cred itable to anything that has a semblance of Democracy about it. It is a dastardly effort to kick out some of the best men in the party, merely to assist the present mayor to break the third term rule and to tie the hands and better judg ment of the voters two years hence. In short they hope to break this rule to re-elect Boyden and make the voters obligate themselves to stand by this same rule two years hence and reflect the present county officials. Are freemen going to allow themselves to be handled thus? Who are these men and of wHat authority have they to say how you shall vote now or at some future date? Such usurpation of authority and dictatorial methods may be used to tide over matters in a case of emergency, they may succeed, they may even flourish for a time, but so sure as death there will, sooner or later, be an end of it. As for us, we believe in the jus tice and righteousness of our peo ple and are content to leave it with them. ECZEMA GERM DISCOV ERED. Dr. Dennis, Well Known Specialist, Ex plains Discovery in Official Report. In a paper read before the National Medical Society in Chicago. Dr D I) Dennis explained his experiments which lead up to the dis covery of the eczema germ This discovery has settled the long disputed questions that akin diseases are due not to conditions of the blood but to disease of the skin itself Dr Dennis explained that cures could be effected only by cu ing the skin through the skin The majority of skin suf ferers, he said, were entirely healthy in all respects showing no pathological symptoms By applying certain harmless vegetable In gradients direct to the injured skin the doc tor explained how the diseased condition could he relieved instantly, taking away the terrible itch and leading to an early cure The reading of the paper was followed by a general discussion in which a number of Chicago’s most eminent physicians partici pated In reply toseveral questions. Dr Den nis defended his course in having permitted the D D D Co, of Chicago, to out out his pre scription in original bottles to be sold at *1 a bottle, instead of stating bis formu a only to brother physicians who could then prescrilie the remedy Dr Dennis said there were thous ands of sufferers from skin diseases who could not or would not pay the regular fees for being under the care of a physician, so that the same results could be accomplished by <eiling‘’D D D Prescriptions" In original boities through druggists He declared tha'. he did not «onsider h is remedy a patent med Icin ■ i 1 the ordinary sense of the word, which was evidenced by the fact that while soi e hr ther physicians had apparently gr.iwn jealous of him, oil ers wi te freely directing their patients to use HDD Prescription for eczema and similar diseases After Dr Dennis had concluded Dr \ B Hartley, of Albany, N Y, read a paper on tubercular infect cns—T W Uriines' Drug Store KILLthe COUGH I and CURE the LUS^QSg Wl™ Dr. King’s New Discovery ___ Consumption Price FOR I OUGHSand 50c & $1.00 \^OLDS Free Trial.

The black diamond Is so hard that It cannot be polished. The Bermudas have a parliament of thirty-six members, while the number of voters is only 1,200. Promotion used to be most rapid in the French army, but today a man stands a better chance of rising in our own. For a finger nail to reach its full length, an average of seven-twelfths of an inch, from 121 to 138 days of growth are necessary. The population of the United States Is estimated to be 85,000,000, and only 29,000,000 are connected with any church, Catholic or Protestant. Billiards was brought into fashion by Louis XIV. of France-in the seven teenth century, because his doctor or dered him to take exercise after his meals. • To protect an invention all over the world it is necessary to take out sixty four patents in as many different coun tries, the estimated cost of which is 12,500.

CARE OF CLOTHES. How a Well Dressed Womnn Looks After Her Dresses and Lots. The woman who knows how to put away her belongings is not only neat, but economical and generally smart in appearance, says the Kansas City Star. When she comes in from a walk she never hangs up her coat by the loop inside the collar. If she puts it away in the closet she uses a coat hanger; if she leaves it around the room, knowing she may need it soon, she disposes it over the back of a chair that will keep it in shape. The skirts of her gowns never have a stringy look because they ait always hooked and then hung by two loops. For a tailor made skirt she uses a small coat hanger with the ends bent down a little. This keeps the skirt in excellent shape and causes It to hang in even folds. The strings of her un derskirts are tied and the garment is hung by the loops, thus never showing a hump where it has rested on the hook. For the same reason her shirt waists are always hung by the arm holes, unless they have hanging loops. Handsome waists have both sleeves and body stuffed with tissue paper and are then laid In drawers or boxes. Shoes are easily kept in shape by slipping a pair of trees into them as soon as they are removed from the feet. If trees are not available, news paper will do, if it is stuffed in tight. It Is well to roll each veil on a stiff piece of paper. A single foil will often spoil the set of a veil and sometimes even mar the expression of a face. Gloves should always be removed by turning them wrong side out. They should then be turned back again, blown into shape and each Anger smoothed out. Ties, especially four-in hand or golf ties, should be hung to avoid creasing. Hats, of course, should be kept out of the dust and placed so that the trim ming will not be disarranged. This dis position depends so much on the hat and the available space that each wo man must use her own ingenuity. However, it Is safe to say that no hat should be laid flat down "on a shelf. Furs, also, should be protected from dust, and a muff should always be stood on end. How to Wash an Automobile, When the owner of an automobile has engaged a new driver he should stand by to watch the method adopted when the new broom washes the car for the first time, says the Pittsburg Press. If a hose is provided and the new man forthwith plunges a sponge into water and commences to wipe the mud and dust off the paint work it is clear that he does not know his job and should be stopped at once. Mud and dust should never be wiped off, even with a wet sponge, but should be washed away with water just running from the hose pipe without force. It should be sluiced away, and that can not be done properly If the water is pouring forcibly through the nozzle. Where mud has caked upon the car water must be allowed to run gently over the incrustations until they break up and are washed away. Then a clean sponge and clean water must be used for finally washing the paint work when all the mud and grit have disap peared. The final drying and polishing can be done with perfectly clean, grit less chamois leathers. Cars should be washed immediately upon coming Into the garage. Wherever dried mud rests for any time a dull stain remains which nothing will remove. How to Care For a Watch. If a watch is expected to go well and to keep good time, the first and chief demandJt makes is that it should have regular attention, says the Pitts burg Press. As far as possible it should be wound up every day about the same hour, and if it is worn let it be worn regularly, not taken out for three days and then returned to its case for the re mainder of the week. Extremes of temperature should also be avoided, as sudden cold or heat works havoc with a valuable watch and its delicate mechanism. Another point to be noted is that the watch should be kept in the same position. If it is carried by day in an upright position, hang it on a hook at night, preferably against some thing soft. How to Remove Grease From Carpet. Grease may be removed from a car pet by spreading over the spot a thick paste of potter’s clay. Tack down tightly over this some thick brown paper, and at the end of a week re move this paper and brush off the clay. It may be necessary in some cases to repeat this process, but one applica tion is usually sufficient. If the grease has penetrated the floor it may be necessary to raise the carpet and put the clay on the floor In the same man ner if it cannot be removed by hard scrubbing. IIow to Remove Fish Odors. The smell of fish that is so hard to remove from pans and plates by wash ing or soaking will yield to lemon skin rubbed over them. This will kill the flavor of even salt mackerel and salm on in a bakepan. After rubbing with the lemon let the dish stand for a little, then wash in cold water and rinse with hot. How to Polish Mirrors. To polish your mirrors, use a soft sponge dipped in alcohol, rubbing the glass vigorously. Now rub it lightly and quickly with a dry soft”clotli, and finally polish well with tissue paper or I preferably with an old silk handker chief. How to Rid Books of Ink Stnlns. Ink stains may be removed from a book by applying with a camel’s hair pencil a small quantity of oxalic acid diluted with water and then using blot ting paper. Two applications will re move all traces of the ink. Scr.d f:r it. ! Thpre are many things in the catalogue of the Weaver Pianos that ar9 w< rth knowing before y. u purchase a piano of any make.
