Taveuuer, special Washington correspondent of this newspaper Washington, Sept.. 6.—Spend ing nearly $200,000 a day more than it took in, the government closed the month of August with a deficit approxunating$51000,000, which is indicative of a deficit of $6,000,000 for this fiscal year, as against a deficit of $19,480,752.43 for the last fiscal year This deficit was due to two principal causes: First: The unparalleled extrav agance of the standpat faction of the republican party, which is in control of the government, Second: Failure of the Payne Aldrich tariff law to produce suf ficient revenue to meet the expen ses of the government, Exess of expenditures over re ceipts is not new in the history ol the party now in power. For three or four years the government has been closing its books each night facing a big deficit in the day’s business. But the average American dees not know this. While there would be no j :-d, ■!:■’& tion for statiug in this ; •■cu that the big press associtK: n misstate the facts, there is ample justification for saying that the facts are so stated that the aver age man does not understand them. For instance, the statement oi the treasury issued at the cios9 of business August 27, shat- the ex cess of expenditures over receipts for July and the first 27 days of August, 1910, amounted to $14, 481,727 34, or an average deficit of $288,684.54 for each banking day in that period. No one could possibly so understand the situa tion, however, from the leports carried by the big press associa tions, which invariably give the administration side of the govern ment finances. If a business firm should spend more money than it t^ok in, day after day, week after week, month after month and year after year, it is but natural to assume that the stockholders would demand a new management. Ytt the men in charge of the government have for years been able to overspend the receipts without having been called to account by the public. This can be explained, however, by the fact that the average man is not by any means aware of the actual situation. WHAT THE FIGURES SHOW. How are these daily deficits made up? The amount of the de ficit is taken from the general fund. How does money get into the general fund? It comes from the people. Figures best tell tht story of what these daily deficits are doing to the general fund: (Balauce in General Fund at Close of year). 1907 . $272,081,445.47, 1908 .... 245,171,347.73, 1909 . 126,375 428,10, 1910 . 106,894,675.87, Aug. 29, 1910 85,696,( 35.42, HOW T. R. COULD I!E USEFUL. Mr. Roosevelt has stated over and over again that it is his am bition, so far as it within his pow er lies, to assist the people to puri fy politics. There ig bat one way the people can exert iEfiaence to purily poli tics—by voting right. If Mr. Roosevelt wishes to give informa tion to the people that will really enable them to do this, why doeB he not tell them frankly whether in his opinion Adlrich and Can non are friends of the Republic? Surely he knows whether they are or not, after having cooperated with them as long as he has. THE NINETEEN-HUNDRED AND TEN CAMPAIGN BOOK. Every democratic worker in the country should have a copy of the 1910 Democratic Campaign Book, which is no doubt the best hand book on the tariff now in print. One of the unusual features of the book, ascourr&sted with past cam paign books, is its utilization of republican utterances to sustain democratic arguments. Thirty-six I of the 516 pages of the bock are j made up of speeches by republi i cans who take practically the same | position on many of the big issues as the democratic leaders. The committee is asking one dollar for the book, which goes toward defraying expenses of the Demo cratic Congressional Committee. Not having been favored with con tributions by the great industrial concerns of the couutrv the demo cratic committee must rely largely upon the contributions from the the people. These who are really unable to contribute the dollar to the campaingu fund, however, may secure a copy of the cam paign book free. Contributions and requests for the book should be addressed to the Hon. F. F. Garrett, treasurer of the National Democratic Congressional Com mittee, Washington, D, C. SHIP SUBSIDY BOBS UP. In his letter to the Republican Congressional committee Presi dent- Taft serves notice on the country that if the next House is leuubiican the shin subsidy bill will be passed. The republicans had intended putting the $5,000,000 ship sub sidy grab through at the last ses sion, but were sidetracked by a scandal which brought about a Congressional probe of the busi ness methods of the Merchant Ma rine League, of Cleveland, Chio, which concern had been attacking and intimidating members of Con gress opposed to the subsidy grab. It developed at the hearing that the attacks on the opponents of shipping subsidies had been car ried on with money subscibed by subsidiary concerus of the steel trust, and other individuals and companies which would profit by the passage of legislation appro priating money from the treasury to private ship owners . AS TO THIRD TERMS. Tf. iw c-fn. .n a! 1 v Virdieve;! in rmtit.i cal circles that Theodore Roose velt is out for a third term as President. Grant, in his day, al most as popular in his day as is RooBfeveltnow, also wanted a third term, but was set upon by the National House of Representa tives, which passed, by a vote of 234 to 1H, the following resolu tion : “That in the opinion of this House the precedent established by Washington and other Presi dents of the United States after their second terms, ha3 become, by universal concurrence, a part of our Republican system of government, and that any depart ure from this time-honored custom would be unwise, unpatriotic, and frought with peril to our free in atutious. Put the Offender in Stripes. In Wisconsin I saw no forest fires. Our carelessness in regard to forest fireg in the South is al most a disgrace to our people. If a man by his carelessness started a fire which burned up your sinjke-houoe or barn, you would raise a great disturbance, but some worthless vagabond may start a forest fire that will do damage equal to a dozen smoke houses or barns and nothing is ever done about it. Timber is becoming scarcer and scarcer every year and our farmers must negiu to re alize that the timber crop is just as valuable and just as surely a money making “crop,” even if it does grow more slowly, as any other crop. The thing to do is so begin putting these men who care less with fire behind prison bars. A few of them wearing stripes would teach a very valuable les son.—Raleigh (N. C.)

Saturday morning as the South ern’s fast paSBeuger train. No. 87, was scurrying southward it seeme death was riding on the cow catch er and was busy gathering unsus pecting victims. Just after leaving Lexington, Frank Billings, a far mer of Cotton Grove township, Davidson County, was struck and instantly killed. He was walk ing on one of the tracks when northbound train No. 44 ap proached and he stepped over on the Southbound track and was killed by No. 87. He leaves seve ral children and was about 50 years old. But the blood of a man was not enough. Panting with impa tience, the whistle screams, clouds of durk smoke and fire is, sues from its funnel and with the blood of its victim not yet dry on the wheels of iron, its mission of death is resumed. At Concord, a woman and a cow are caught and meet a similar fate, A dispatch of the same date tells of this acci dent as follows: Mrs. Kli Hatley, a white wom an about 82 years old, who lives at the Cannon mill, was struck and instantly killed by the South ern's fast passenger train No. 37 this morning about 10 o’clock. Mrs Hatley was driving a cow down a small path along the edge of the railroad track directly op posite the power station of the Southern Power Company and on the approach of the train the cow became frightened and began to run along the track. Mrs. Hat ley held on to the chain and at tempted to stop the cow but to no avail and a few seconds before the tram reached them the animal made a dash' across the track. Mrs. Hatley attempted to follow, but she only succeeded in getting on the outer edge of the track when the engine struck her, hurl ing her down the embankment. Death resulted instantly. Both arms and a number of other boues were broken and her body was badly bruised and maugled, pre senting a most horrible spectacle. Mrs. Hatley is survived by her husbaud aud two small children.

Setter Water Supply for the Farm. Housekeepers must be freed from tbe slavery of inconvenient water supplies ; it must be made basy for them to have all the wa ter they need for household pur poses, aud the bathroom must be made a recognized feature of the country home as well as of the city homo. We do not think it too much to say that the way to all these things is clearly pointed out in this issue. The old excuse, “I can not afford it,” v/ill no longer answer. When one can have a bathroom fitted up for less than $40, and when water can be supplied to the whole house for from $100 to $300, the question becomes, ‘‘How long, can I afford to do without it?” Not a bit longer, if you have your own home and even a little bit of sur plus cash on hand, for thero is nothing that will add mor9 to the comfort of life or pay bigger divi dends on the investment,—Ral eigh, N.

SAFETY IN THE TROPICS, The General Effect of Sanitary Progress o Tropical Civilization. In a recent work entitled ‘‘Mos quito or Man,” Sir Robert Boyce in the preface, says: “Finally if results are locked for, it can b< said without exaggeration that th< tropical world is today being steadily and surely conquered, The narration of the numerous campaigns against the mosquitc which I have here reoorded is sig nal proof of this. The campaigns show that the three great insect carried scourges of-the tropics, the greatest enemies that mankind has ever had to contend with, namely, malaria, yellow fever, and sleeping sickness, are now fully in hand and giving way, and with their conquest disappears the awful and grinding depression which seemed to have gripped our forefathers. Now the situation is full of hope. The mosquito is no longer a nightmare; it can be got nd of. The tropical world is un folding once again to the pioneers of commerce, who now do not dread the unseen hand of death as did of old the Spanish couquista* dores of ColumbuB and Cortes. The British public has and must always have a paramount interest in this practical conquest, which ia HpQf.inoH in ft rmof. alipA nf the globe, of undreamt-of produc tiveness, to their dominions and activities.” Why has the strong northern blood which nature attempts con stantly to pour into tropical lands failed to gain a foothold? Why have the tropics not been civil ized? W'hy has the most fertile section of the globe remained un cultivated? Does the northerner forsake the tropic on account of heat or sickness? Gorges in the canal zone has demonst,rated thit the American can live in the tropics with as much safety and do as much work as he can in the United States. It was not heat, but death, that drove the French from this region twenty years ago, death from malaria and yellow fever that buried 50,000 of their laborers before they forsook the tropics The gate to tropical civ ilization has been locked for cen turies by the mosquito and the fly that carries sleeping sickness. Evidence is accumulating that suggests, and goes a long way to ward proving for some, that the fall of Greece was due principally to tropical diseases imported through their soldiers returning with prisoners, both infected with malaria and other tropical dis eases. Much more could he said along this line but for space limi tation. Your blood is your life. If it’s impure, it acts as a receiving ageut for diseases.

Apex, Sept. 8.—With a foul oath, Almon Rains, shot and kill ed his wife, Stella Rains, at Friendship, a lumber siding 2 1-2 miles below Apex, this morning at 10 o’clock. Housed a breech loading shotgun, which he bor rowed from a neighbor for the pur pose, firing a load squarely in her eye, tearing off the top of her head. Death was instantaneous. Loading the gun again he dared any to follow him. He came to Apex and caught a north-bound passuger train.

CARVES WIFE AND HER LOVER. i C. W. Pace Finds His Wife And a Man I Room Together. A special to The Charlotte Ob server from Columb.a, S. C., dat ed Sunday tells the following scandalous story concerning tw< well known Salisburians and i Syrian: Columbians residing in one ol the city’s most fashionable street! were aroused early this morning by screams that iuvestigatior proved came from just such an af. fair as the Lillis-Cudahy scandal out West not so long ago. C. W. Pace, a well known and respectable resident on Taylci street, returned to his home rath er unexpectedly about 5 o’clock this morning, he proceeded to his boarding house and to his room where he was very much surprised not to find his wife. He heard conversation in another room, which he afterward found out to be the abiding place of Joe George,a Syrian who is also a well known chadaiter in this city. In this room was also Pace’s wife. What followed the discovery of this couple is told in different ways by the persons involved. Pace, who is under arrest, talked freely of the affair to newspaper men, and gave as his version of the subsequent event ‘‘a outtiug up of George,” or words to that eirot. At any rate ireorge bears several marks, some of which ho will tell the world about, and others, perhaps, of which he will not speak. He was badly cut about the face and chest with a knife, snd it is upon this charge that Pace is under arrest. Pace’s wife is cut about the face and hands, this being the work of tno irate husbaud. George, after the dressing of the wounds, is also under arrest-, the chaige against him being creating a dis turbance. Mrs. Pace was taken to a local hosnital. Mr, Pace is a native of Salis bury, a machinist and a splendid, hard working young man, a son of the late J. Fletcher Pace, for many years a member of the Salis bury police force. Mrs. Pace is also a native of Salisbury, being a daughter of the iat6 0. W. Poole, who also far many years served on the Salisbury police force, their troubles are regretted by a large circle of friends here. The Lash of a Fiend would have been about as welcome to A.

The crops generally used for fall sowing to serve as cover and graz ing crops are crimson clover, the vetches, bur clover and rye. Oats, wheat and barley are sometimes used, but generally these crops are sowed for making seed or forage for the next summer rather than as cover and grazing crops, al though they serve more or less for both these puprposes. If the land is rich we wuld put the cereal in the following order of merit for winter grazing: Harley, wheat, rye (Southern grown) and oats. It is useless to sow bailey on poor land, hut on rich land we would have no hesitation in placing it first among the aerials for furnish ing winter grazing We also re gard wheat as superior to rye oi oats, but it also requires richei land than the rye and oats, but not necessarily as rich land as if required for barley. For a winter cover crop and foi grazing these cereals should b< sown moderately early. We an often asked if they may be put ii at the last cultivation of the cot ton, but while this may be succ -s fully done in many cases, we ad vise sowing them, as cover cv ps jaud for grazing, the latter pan of September or first half of 0 :f * ber. When sowed in cotton \o believe it usually better to ow immediately after the first pier' g rather than at the last workii As a hardy cover and w :.-r grazing crip for genera! u? i rather thin land, Southern er -.v.i is pr ibably the most reliabl of tte cereals. The Nothern-g mwii seed give plants that seem to lie on the ground more and an not near so sati'factory for for giaz iug. We regard oafs as the least val ue for winter grazing, but in the lower half or t.v-thirds of ur territory are the best mat. iring seed or grain.—Raleige (N J.) Progressive Farmer and G.zeUe. -- Best for the Hands S, L. Chapman, Massac, Ky., says: I used Dr. Bell’s Antiseptic 1 Sa’ve on my hands, which were sore, and find it the; best I ever . tried.

The grand jury of the August* ■ September term of the Rowan ; t uperior court finished their work Thursduy and adjourned. The following is a report of the jury: To His Honor W. J . Adams, Judge of the Superior Court: We, the Grand Jury for the said county respectfully report that we have acted upon all papers that have come into our hands. That we have made present ments of all cases coming to our knowledge, and have otherwise disposed of all business that has been brought before us, and so r . _ iai as we are acne to judge, nave performed all the duties required of us as grand jurors. We visited the offioes of the county officers and found them in excellent shape, books and records all well and neatly kept. We found that onr efficient County Superintendent of Public Instruction was engaged in revis ing the school census and compil ing a list of all deaf, dumb and blind children to be forwarded to John E. Ray, Supt., Raleigh, N. C. We visited the jail in a body, and found same in a healthy and sanitary condition, the prisoners say they are well fed and cared for, but we earnestly recommend that the Board of Commissioners have a fence erected around the jail because as it now stands it would be an easy matter for any one on the outside to hand tools or explosives in to the prisoners. We visited the county home and found everything ia excellent condition, 13 white inmates and 5 colored, all well cared for and comfortable. We visited chaingang No.2, and found 25 colored prisoners and 6 white, they reported that they are fed and humanely treated. We also visited chain gang No. 1 and found colored and white prisoners, they also report that they are well oared for Jand humanely treated. C. C.
