Believe in Yourself. Believe in Yourself, It means courage and fortune. It makes Cofidknce at a time when be lief in your own powers is valuable. It m ane Life to the Bloo> and Sparkle to the Eye when your vigor end sincerity are under tiie microsoopic test of hostile examination. The poise oi the oratfer, the self-trust of the swimmer, the vim aud aggressiveness of the good fighter, come from self-reliance; and no Man whyBelteves in Himself is Ever Afraid of Losing His Jcb. Fear is the arch-enemy of power; and fear of circumstances aud of u simply another name for lack of confidence in self. To got other* to believe in you, Fibbt Believe in Yourself, not «s a matte, f logio, but through pure self-oonfidence, for the world knows that no man can accomplish anything without faith, and Faith Begins in the Soul before it find* its way into the mind. To believe that you oan do a thing Before you have done it is 4ooos*arj- to growth. The mind of the man who has no faith that he qan do a thing nnles* he ha* done it before is doomed to perpetual LiUipati&nism and deoay. And he who even limits his faith to what Others have done, will never add much to the real progres of rthe world. The lion-hearted man is he who has the courage to Attempt ,What Has Never Been Done Before and the faith to believe He »JA*JJO IT. To enroll among the immortal* it is necessary to do a new thing only Once. But the man who accomplishes the untried Once never stops; for He has learned the secret |of growth. Those who Never grow are the helpless and inanimate who are not willing to relieve that they can do a thing Once. Out of the Ginger Jar. The fast man is pretty apt tc fall behind.

New Dwlopments in tiie Slate Campaign Against Hookworm Disease. The State and oounty dispensa ries for the free treatment of hookworm disease are attracting wide-spread attention. Fifteen eastern counties have made the neoeesary provision to have them. In four of these ooonties, Robe son, Sampson, Oolnmbas and Halifax, the work was completed about three weeks ago and an av erage of 8,000 viotims of the dis ease were treated in each county. The cDanties of Wayne, Onslow, Cumberland and Northampton now have in opera tion. About one Handled people are being treated daily at esoh of the diepaus arise. Pender, New Hanover, Brunswick, Craven, Pitt, Warren and Hertford coun ties have made provision for the dispensaries and will be entered as soon as possible. Bladen and perhaps two or three other oonn tiee will take action the next first Monday. The dispensaries re main in a county usually six weeks. The good results of their work are so apparent that after the dispensaries move to new fields the local doctora are kept busy continuing the treatment. A Dreadful Sight to H. J.

On May 18, 1910, a small group representing various religions or ganizations of Christian men met in a hotel in New York city. A common interest brought them together- In August ot last year another group sending 72 oitieB and 88 States and Provinces of North America were together two days at Buffalo. The interest was still the same but more in tense. “How can more men be brought into the church and how can those who are in the church be aroused to such aotivity that we shall have a mighty crusade that will result in making this a better world?” Since that series of meetings the eyes and ears of people of Canada and the United States have been greeted with increased frequency with the phraBe “The Men and Religion Forward Movement.” It is a simple recognition of the fact that conditions that maintain today muBt not be toler ated. It seeB the evi. and is dis turbed by it; it sees the remedy and is aroused to aotion. The true dynamic for sooial and po litical improvement is the spiritual force, active or latent m every man; that force, which prompts and can help every man to make the most of himself. The international movement is directed by a Committee of 97. Ninety oities in North Amerioa have been chosen as headquarters for radiating centers. Other cities in their territory become Auxiliary cities. For instance, Jacksonville is headquarters for Florida. Thus Atlanta, Savan nah and other cities in Georgia and Florida become Auxiliary oities with headquarters at Jack sonville. Charleston is head quarters for North and South Carolina. Already a powerful Committee of 100 is quietly but effectively at work there. Head quarters are maintained at the Y. M. 0. A. Strong interdenomi national Committees on Missions, Bible study, Sunday Sohool, Community Extension, Evangel ism and so on are already at work. reoruary 10-14 a great team 01 experts of international eminence will be in Charleston. Every Carolina city which becomes an auxiliary oenter will have a dele gation there. Communications addressed to Executive Secretary Y. M. C. A.. Charleston, will bring full information. The Charleston Committee will wel come any siBter city in the Caro lines into- the movement. But action must be quick. Every Protestant pastor and Sunday Sohoul superintendent is on the committee of 100. Another Old Bible. T. A. P. Roseman was in town Saturday and having seen Venus’ statement in last week’s paper concerning an old bible bought at the sale of the late Caleb Ba singer, brought in the following information concerning one which he has. Mr. RoBemans bible is a family relic, it having come down from his father and grand father. It measures 16 inches long, 11 inches wide and is 6£ inohes thick. It was printed in Germany in 1584, the binding is of wood and rawhide, the corners are ornamented with brass and it weighs 17 pounds. This beats Venus’ book in size, weight and age, so Mr. Roseman now stands at the head in this line. If any one can beat this he is invited to do so. Thursday, Benny Garret, a boy living with Mr. Roseman found a ripe strawberry which is some what unusual for this time of ENFORCING TRUST LAW. < Trusts Trying to Git Right in Eyes of the Liw. Washington, fept. 22.—Reoent reports that attorneys for large combinations of corporations and their principals also were hoping for some general understanding with the government authorities concerning the application of the antitrust law. and that some of them went to the attorney general to ascertain what aotion, if any, may be necessary to make them stand right in the eyes of the government, was the subject of much discussion here. The As sociated Press is in position to state the following, as the atti tude of the department of justice: “The attorney general’s posi tion, as frequently stated by him, is that since the supreme courts decision in the oil and tobacco caseB, the area of uncertainty in the law hsd been greatly reduced, and the meaning of the statute in its application to great monopo listic corporations, made dear. This makes it necessary for those combinations to resolve them selves into a number of dlstiuct and separate entitles, no one of which shall be in itself a combi naticn in restraint of trade or threaten monopoly. “How this shall be done, is, of oonrse, a separate problem in each case, a problem which in the first instanoe those in control of combinations and their counsel must work out. Government’s law department is preparing to bring before court all ocmbina tions with th» government’s view, they will doubtless follow the supreme court's precedent and give it reasonable time to reorga nize in conformity with the law.” “The department of justice makes it clear that the burden of reorganization, framing of plans and demonstrating their sufficien cy and adequacy must be assumed by those interested in the com binations and not by the depart ment of justice officials.” COPPER PRODUCTION DEGREASED. Gold and Sliver Output Increases In North Carolina in 1910. North Carolina regained first place among the Eastern States in 1910 in the production of gold. The year’s mine production, ac cording to the United States Geo logical surrey, was 3,291.68 fine ouuces, valued at 168,045, an in crease over the output for 1909 of 1,345.55 fine ouuces and of $27,716 in value. The yield of silver, recovered in refining the gold and copper produced, was 9,053 fine ounces, valued at $4, 888, an increase of 8,554 ounces and of $4,629 in value. The cop per production was 140,614 pounds, valned at $17,845, a de crease of 83,998 pounds and of $11 841 in value. The total value of the production of gold, silver, and copper in North Caro liua in 1910 was $90,778, an in crease over the corresponding value for 1909 of $21,108 There were 28 plaoer mines in wpoiouiuu in xox\j nuu 10 aeep mines. The deep mines pro duced 14,914 short tons of ore, of which 12,698 tons were gold quartz ores, with an average total recovered value in gold and silver of $4.42 per ton, and 2,221 tons were oopper ores, with an aver age precious metal value of $2 61 per ton, and yielding 68 2 pounds of oopper per ton. The placers of North Carolina yielded 497.84 fine ounces of gold and 43 fine ounces of silver; the silioeoas ores produced 2,745 77 fine ounces of gold and 456 line ounces silver; the oopper ores yielded 48.67 fine ounces of gold and 8.554 fine ounces of silver. The notable production of silver from North Carolina in 1910 was therefore from oopper ores. The produc tion for Orange, Person and Rowan was, gold 246 13 fine ounces valued at $6,088, and silver 8,459 fineounoes valued $4. 568, --- • •--— Not a Word of Scandal marred the call of a neighbor on Mrs. W.

A half part per million of iron in water is detectable by taste and more than 4 or 5 parts make a water unpalatable. In some mineral springs iron is the constit uent which imparts a medicinal value to the water, hut ordinarily it is undesirable. More than 2 5 parts per million in w^ter used for laundering makes a stain on clothes. Iron must be removed from water from which ice is made or a cloudy discolored prc - duct will result. An iron oontent of over 2 or 8 parts per million in water used in the manufacture of paper will stain the papor. Iron is harmful ia water used for steaming, for it is in equilibrium with acids which inside the boiler become dissociated, with the re sult that the free acids oorrode the boiler plates; but the amount of iron carried in solution by most waters is so small that the damage it does to steam boilers generally amounts to little. Waters having high iron con tent have iu some places oaused an immense amount of trouble and expense when used as city sup plies, for they favor the growth of Crenothrix to such a degree that the water pipes become clogged with the iron sheaths of the organ ism. The removal of iron from water is sometimes easy ani some times very difficult,—Water Sufi ply papar 278, G. S. Geological Survey. Plight Across Atlantic Aim of Danish Avltor New York, Sept. 21.—The conquest of the Atlantic, the most ambitious exploit yet undertaken by an aviator, is contemplated by a Danish airman, who discribes his plans in a letter to The Nord Lyset, a Danish newspaper of Brooklyn. This aviator writes that he has enlisted the necessary financial aid and made arrangements to fly next spring from Copenhagen to New York, resting only at London and Queenstown, and upon ships stationed at inter vals across the North Sea and the Atlantic ocean. At the aviator’s request his name is withheld faom pub lication at this time. He says he will use a biplane of American manufacture and expects to fly at the rate of about 56 mile an hour.
