Entered as geoond-elasa matter Jan. 19th. ldOB, at the post offlee at Salis bury, N. 0., under the act of Congress of Marsh 8rd, 187B. Salisbury, April 1st, 1914. The ground hog has had his day. You may take forty papers aud not The Watchman aud would •till be laoking, but you can take The Watchman aud not the forty and be fully satisfied. When you pay a dollar to a stranger for a ten-cent pen, a pair five-cent spectacles, or a ten cent knife and a paper, you are being worked for a sucker. Prof. H. B. Varner, of Lixiug ton, N. C., has decided not to ran for congress in his district. The Professor has acted very wisely The Watchman had nothing agin our neighbor and therefore did not flatter him because of his am bition, thereby eucuraging him tc attempt too much. The Profes sor however, generaly makes a good showing when he goes after something and would no doubt average up well should he occupy a seat in congress. There are not many newspaper men who w^uid not. BEYOND LIMIT OF PATIENCE ■'ni'B _ gmall Girl Finally Rose in a Revolt V Over the Much Disliked Study pi of German. German lessons were the bane of Kittle Elizabeth’s existence. But her Bn Tit, who had just finished her educa tion in Germany and was acting as her tutor, was determined her favorite kiiece should master the German lan SO&ge in her kindergarten days. A nwtl behaved little girl was Elizabeth BS a rule, but when occasional out fbreakB of temper called for punish IBnent one method used, and one that to Khe child’s peculiar reasoning seemed IlhB refinement of cruelty, was to com pel her to go to her room and say pci* prayers in German. That punish PfrBrct always called forth tears and Rternocn while she was poring child’s book in the detested and failing to understand the rj she was reading Uncle Jim Hlsed to see the usually quiet l rip the leaves from the book, n into strips and throw them iside as she burst into tears. !«■ -—couldn't help it," sobbed Eliz ■fcBth; "that German Is so hard I ocoldn't make anything out of it.

H L . I-, Tango Not New. _ Tj18 tango, according to I,e Cri de ^rU, is no new dance in France. It Wa derived from the "degognade” or HBOgnade" of Auvergne. Madame de jBewlgne, who saw it danced at Vichy r° 1®76, declared that she was in fatuated with It, and that if it were flaunched at Versailles, all the court £wuld go crazy over it It is sur PnlBed that the old French dance was token by the gipsies (who often ran tower Auvergne) over the Pyrenees to ppaln. from where it went to the Ar gentine and now returns with the inear name of "the tango.” “All the 'deegy of central France,” says Le jCH, "thundered in the eighteenth cen tury against the ‘gognade.’ It was for bidden under pain of ex-communica tion, and Interdicted in public assem blies, but the Auvergnois resisted and triumphed.

Indian rite of "sat.1,” or the self i immolation of Brahmin and other high flam widows at the cremation of their (deceased husbands. But from time to (time a case is reoorded and it is be Sieved that there are many more which lare sever heard of. A story reached kxmdoa from Calcutta recently of one iof these tragic cases of self-destruc itlon. The night after the death of a febu named Manoranjan, his widow, a (girt of fourteen, prepared a funeral pyre in a corner of her house un known to any one, and, rising early »ext morning, she saturated her cloth Sng with keroeene oil, Ignited it and Say down on the pyre.
