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 Big Meeting to be Held Id Charleston,
S. C., Next February.
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
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
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
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

ENFORCING TRUST LAW. <
Trusts Trying to Git Right in Eyes of the
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
“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.

Iron Id Water. *
What would you consider one
of the most powerful agents with
which to flavor water? Would
it be iron?
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
