A chicken hatched last week at
the home of Lee Clark, in Beth
any township, boasted four wings
and four legs. Extra legs on
chickens is not uncommon, but a
double portion of wings and legs
is a curiosity worth while.-States
ville Landmark.
Congressman Called Down Then Knocked
Down.
The Telegraphers’ Union held a
meeting in Chicago a few days ago
and among those on the stage was
Congressman McDermott. He is a
member of the union aud in the
course of the meeting he was called
upon for a speech. When he arose
to respond objection was made by
some one presant that the Cron
gressman was not in good standing
as he has failed to pay his dues.
The objection was sustained and
the Crongressman had to take his
seat. As he did so, he made an in
sulting remark to the man who
had called him down aud the man
proceeded to knock him down as
well. The Crongressman was in
the wrong in letting his temper
get away with him. It was proper
that a man who had failed to pay
his dues and was therefore dis
qualified from participating in
the proceedings should have been
halted, and that in this instance
the man was a Congressman was
all the more to the credit of the
man who publicly called attention
to his imperfection.—Charlotte
Chronicle.
It was proper to call the Con
gressman to taw, for he was
doubtless in the meeting for the
sole purpose of gaining the sup
port of the mombers of the union.

A Guilty Father Dies.
Thomas Giddings, the old man
who tried to kill his oldest daught
er Tuesday and afterwards drank
carbolic acid, died at the hospital
early Friday morning, thus rob
bing the court of a sensational
case.
Last night Giddings made a
statement to the officers in which
he confesses that he had improper
relations with his daughter and
that he attempted to shoot her
because she would not promise
not to swear against him. He said
the pistol would not fire and this
is why his daughter’s life was
spared. The girl denies that he
ever acomplished his purpose.
Those who have stomach trou
ble, no matter how slight, should
give every possible help to the di
gestive organs, so that the fond
may be digested with the least ef
fort. This may be done by taking
something that contains natural
digestive properties—something
like Kodol for Indigestion and
Dispepsia. Kodol is a prepara
tion of vegetable acids and con
tains the very same juices found
in a healthy stomach. It digests
what you eat. Sold by James
Plummer and all druggists.
What Did it.
The threat to call the Legislature
in extra session was“the straw that
broke the camel’s back.” When
Gov. Glenn declined to treat with
the ambassador from the Depart-,
ment of Justice last Thursday, and
notified the railroad people gath
ered in force under Judge Pirtch
ard’s protecting wing in Ashe
ville thatjthe road must first agree
to obey the law before he would
talk about a compromise, the ' an
swer ot the railroad waB, “We’ll
fight.” “Then,” says the Gover
nor,“I’ll call the Legislature in
extra session.” Possibly the rail
road manager had no idea that he!
would resort to that dire extrem
ity, but the moment they saw his
move a great fear seized them and
their knees smote together. A
Legislature in sessi n in the
present state of the public mind 1
It is bad enough, with so many
* ~ “=
members of the body and politi
cians generally trying to make
political capital by doing some
thing to the railroads, to have to
run the gauntlet of a regular
session. So when the railroad
people saw the Governor was in
earnest about calling the Legisla
ture, they made haste to ’get to
Raleigh and to say as quick as
they could get their breath that
they would put the 2i-cent rate
into elfect if the Governor would
only give them time to get the
tickets printed.
Fact is, if the Governor had in
sisted. the railroad people would
probably have made the. fare a
cent a mile, law or no law, and
would in addition have agreed to
haul everybody free certain days
in the week, rather then take
chanoes on an extra session of the
Legislature; but the Governor was
generous and didn’t want to press
them to the wall.
If Gov. Glenn had made that
threat a month ago the railroads
would have yielded without firing
a gun and all the trouble, fuss and
expense might have been saved.
But then there would not have
been so much opportunity to make
political capital. — Statesville
Landmark.
Nor would the railroads have
learned that they had gone as
far as would be tolerated.
