THE CAROLINA WATCHMAN.
WM H. STKWaiii. id. and Pub. Published Every Wednesday at 1J0 Weal Innlas Street Subscription Price ft per year atrlctly cash in advance Entered as second-class matter Jan. 19th. 1905, at the post office at Salis bury, N. C., under the act of Congress of March Srd, 1897. Salisbury, N.C , April 17th, '07 THE THIRD TERM RULE DE STROYED. By the action of the Democrat ic primary, held yesterday, the third term rule, which w'as passed by the regular county Democrat ic convention something over six years ago, was overwhelmningly defeated. The idea that an offi cer is to serve only three terms and then "retire is no longer in fa vor. He may now serve three or ten terms, or he may be kicked out at the end of one. Which, by the wav, is just that much too many for some, Beside the de feat of Mr. Vanderford, an ever Icyai and hard working Demo crat, and the nomination of Mr. Boyden, the petted, pampered and spoiled prodigal, this is not the only effect of the action of the primary. It is now plainly ap parent to all intelligent people that the whiskey interests con trol the town and county Democ racy, notwithstanding many ot these same men are what is known as National Republicans, It was a great shock and surprise to us, as it must have been to all who are not so thoroughly imbued witn personal interests, or so morally stunted that the awful, undeniable corrupt conditions here fail to longer receive eveu pass ing notice, to note some few good men lining up beside the bar keepers and bums in a common cause, for the whiskey' interest’s ideal official. Some people have been, no doubt, fooled. They im agine that not even the common copal and wild onion would long er grow in this county if Mr. Jloyden should have been defeat ed. Should he ever die, of course we will have to build a fenc-' around the place, lock the gates and hibernate until another of his stripe is born. Not alone is this idea held by his satellites, but he also seems to be consumed with a similar weakness. For instance, we are reliably informed that in his remarks, after the result of the primary had been make known to the convention, he stated that he “did not wish to stay in a rut,” that he wished “to go forward,” and that if the people would “stick to me, I will make Salis bury one of the foremost cities of the South.” This, in reality, is somewhat an hallucination. No doubt he can equal and poesiblj surpass Count Boni in spending some one else’s, or the public’s money, but herein lies his fault and failure to realize why he hat again been nominated for mayor As we see it, his nomination is due to the efforts of tbe whiskey ring and its allies, and as tin business people of the commuui ty do not need or want his assist ance, his obligations are due those who endorsed his loose and reck less administration by their votes. In other words the whiskey ring and its allied interests have elec ted him to do their bidding, not to build up the city structurally, morally or otherwise. They care nothing for these things. Blood money is their first and last thought and Boyd -n is the man that has helped and will continue to help them. Ther was a lot of fool-thiugs said aud done during the recent primary campaign. One among the many which struck us rather forcibly was something like this : “I would have voted for Mr. Vanderford, but he sent out too many circulars about Mr. Boy den.” From which we are led to infer that such a weakling would not thank you fcr calling hxs at tention to the short-comings aud misconduct of an employee. You would incur his great displeasure aud the employe, no matter how great or aggravated his offense, would be given an increase of sal ary and a vote of thanks at on;:e. Last week an exceedingly poor campaign document, printed and delivered at an expenss of some thing over $433.00 of the town’s money, was handed around. It was issu;d under the title of “Fi nancial Statement ot The Town of Salisbury, N. C. January 31st. 1907.” The first thing to greet the eye inside the cover is “Er rata.” This is a solemn fact and about the shortest and best de scription possible of such a “docu ment.” It is truly an errata The city’s charter says that the annual statement “shall” be published in some newspaper.” The last time we bid on this work the amount was $6.00. We are satisfied the present document could have been priifted correctly, iud in a home “newspaper” as the I iw directs, for a sum not exceed ing $30.00, thus saving consider able for the city. We understand the direct cost of printing, ex* press, etc., was something like $163.9-5. We want to add thai this work could and ought to have been done in Salisbury and that W~. B. Strachan is responsible for this needless waste of the city’s funds and the effort to help build up the city—of Charlotte. The adoption of this “errata” was railroader through the board at the first and last meeting this year, recently held. However, it. is our belief that Mr. Strachan’s intentions in connection with this has been with the best of motives, even though partisan zeal and indifference to law and city pride seem to be the most prominent characteristics of the proceedings. But you know its the fashion to ignore the law now. GOLD KNOB. April 15th. The b ggest thing we can do is to make fire and wait for warm weather. The farmers have planted som<‘ corn and are just aching to see it come up, but our opinion is that it will not come until the soil gets warm and then it will be rotten in .he hill. Better keep what corn you have in the crib and wait for the weather to moderate The frosts have just about thinned out the fruit. Peaches are all killed and apples will be few if any. Fruit will be fruit this year. Wheat, is not doing so very well, what the lice have left the frost has damaged it to some ex tent. -The oat lice have entirely swept all the oats in some fields. Better be saving and hold to what we have. Henry C Park, of Andersim, S. C., visited home folks last week. To look at Patsey's items there is plenty of visiting done in her town. Wonder if we would go up ihere if we w’ould get our name in print. Herbert Kluttz fell from his wagon last Saturday evening and sustained bruises from which he is greatly inconvenienced. Sidney and John Trexler, of this place, are working on the Junior hall at Rockwell. The Rockwell and Gold Knob oase ball teams crossed bats Eas ter Monday on the Rockwell dia mond, with a score of 19 to 20 in t'avor of Gold Knob. There are several stories about this game. Rockwell claims the game by one run. It has never be°u fully de cided . St. Peter’s congregation is in need of an organ and it is hoped ' hat the members will realize this need and respond at once. There will be preaching at St. Peter’s church on Sunday, April 21st, at 3’oclock instead of 11 o’clock. Rev. Linn will preach at Rockwell on that date in the morning. Sunday School at St. Peter’s at 1 o’clock. John H. Misenheimer and fam ily visited at John W. Liuker’s iast Saturday night. Lee. -• •-_ His Dear old Mother. “My dear old mother, who is now eighty three years old, thrives ~>n Electric Bitters,” writes W. B. Brunsun, of Dublin, Ga. “She has taken them for about two years and enjoys an excellent ap petite, feel strong and sleeps well,” That’s the way Electric Bitters affect the aged, and the same happy results follow in all cases of female weakness and gen eral debility. Weak, puny chil dren too, are greatly strengthen ed by them. Guaranteed also for stomach, liver and kidney troubles by all druggists. 60c, FAITH. Mrs Harvey Beaver took sud denly sick Friday.

It is likely fruit will be scarce this year. W. H. Earnhardt moved to Salisbury last Thursday and his neighbors were sorry for him to leave the community lie will work at the carpenter trade, J. F. Park has another fine mule. Considering the weather there was quite a number out at Rock Grove Sunday School j esterday afternoon. J. R.

Hundreds of people will start in an en terprise that promises such great re turns, and the tendency will be to ' breed* aKifftit every animal that will reproduce itself regardless of quality, soundness and general desirability. Breed Them night. As a consequence a great many horses of nondescript character will be raised at a loss alike to those who breed them and to the state, while, on the other hand, those who choose wise ly and breed and raise only the best, using stallions and mares that are deeply bred In the best blood lines of the breeds that they Intend to raise and who by proper care and attention raise really serviceable horses, uReful for the purpose for which they aro In tended, sound, kind and beautiful, will not only make a great deal of money for themselves, but will greatly benefit the section of country in which they live. There is practically no limit to the demand, at rich figures (which will grow larger each season for the next eight or ten years), for the horse that is bred right, raised right and trained to be good in his class, whether It is as a trotting race horse, a fast speed way horse, a park horse, a reliable, well mannered, sound, handsome fam ily carriage horse or a sturdy draft horse. Breed them right, raise them right, educate them properly, and the product of a small band of well bred mares, with the right kind of stallion at their head, will make their owner rich in IJie next ten years. Notes For Breeders. _ Oats are a natural and nutritious horse feed. The sta-H ought to be nine feet long and five feet wide, says Kimball’s Dairy Farmer. Scrub--bosses -fire-.neither profitable nor satisfactory. In training young colts drive them with a fast walker. Do not whip a frightened horse. It only adds to his fright. Some people curry their horses dur ing the shedding season only. A horse naturally feeds from the ground. Avoid high mangers. The mare that is suckling a colt is doing double duty and should not be required to perform as much hard labor as the other horses. All trouble in kicking, rearing and stubbornness generally arises from im proper handling or not sufficient han dling to adapt horses to usage. You can better afford to starve your horses any other time than during the first year of their existence. A stunt ed colt seldom makes a well developed horse. Treatment that may entirely break one horse of a bad habit may entirely fail on another. It is hard to lay down rules that will work well In all cases. Horses are classed In the Chicago market as drafters, loggers and feed ers, chunks, expresses, farm mares, light drivers, actors and coachers. The last class brings the best mon ey. Light drivers come next. But of all the classes the drafters are the most profitable because they can be put on the market cheaper. It’s a big proposition to fit up a team of light drivers or coachers that will sell for a top price. Kodol Dyspepsia Cure Digests what you eat. Does Coffee disagree with yon?
