Salisbury, N. (J., May 19, ’15.
The State Supreme Court has
paused ou several cases brought to
test the one-quart liquor law pass
ed by the last legislature and held
it to be constitutional. Old
John dies slowly but surely.
One reason the politicians do not
object to women voting is because
where it has been tried there has
been no appreciable changes
made. They find it just as easy,
if not a little more so, to work
tricks ou the women as the men;
Considerable complaint is heard
in regard to the speeding cf au
tomobiles and mortorcyoles ou
the streets of Salisbury and on
the avenue between Salisbury and
Spencer. It is a wonder there are
not many accidents resulting
from this praotice as few pay any
attention to the ipeed regula
tions.
Our pressman went to sleep
this morning and failed to get
enough ink on a portion of the
paper this week and it was dis
covered too lste to reprint. We
eregrt this and hope Buch au oc
ourence will not oocur again.
When our new preBB is installed
we will be able to give a muoh
better service.
The Watchman does not be
lieve an officer elected by the
people has any business with
plans. He is purely to the servant
of the people and it is up to him
to merely do their bidding and
observe stnotly the requirements
of his office. The people are get
ting sore on bossism hereabouts.
There is too mooh of it.
We understand that a bolter
from the Democratic party at the
last election is a candidate for
city tax collector, and, we under
stand that there is no hope of hie
election without the mayor-elect,
W. H. Woodson, chairman of the
County Democratic Executive
Committee, so desires. The
question is, What is the chairman
of the party going to do about it?
nthfiPB IYt O XT BQQ 1 nt Vi n t
from our view point by the lack of
sufficient appropriations and fore
sight in regard to an adequate
navy, Congress has permitted the
American people to be found de
fenseless in the hour of need.
President Wilson is now playing
the baby aot to keep us from te
ing slapped off the earth, which
of course is the only thing he can
do at present.
Now that the old Confederate
soldiers are getting soarce. it has
been suggested that their wives
also be invited to partake of the
annual dinner and memorial ex
ercises. It is said that there was
more than enough food supplied
last Friday and to have the good
women to join with the veteran*
would oause no additional burden
and yet oause more of the old
veterans to attend.

posted American to intimate
that the United State9 has a navy
that would in any way justify
this nation’s entering into a con
flict with any Earopean power of
consequence. Our little fifteen
or twenty ships may be ready
alright enough, but ready for
what? Every important nation
knows all that is necessary con
cerning our navy and this bun
combe about being “ready” only
creates a smile.

so much more easily digested
when consumed by our own in a

Wheat and oats are looking
much better since the recent good
rains, but there is much talk of
planting tbe ootton over where the
land ia tight.
The apple crop will be very
email this year. We had a fine
crop of blooms, but at least 90 per
cent did not materialize.
R. B, Peeler is renovating his
threshing machine, preparatory
for threshing again after harvest.
R. L, Brown, aa old oripled sol
dier was very much surprised on
Friday evening to receive a full
meal of the old soldiers’ dinner
from Salisbury He wae unable
to get there himself, but somebody
thought of him and Alexander
Peeler brought it, saying he had a
parcel post package. It was receiv
ed and opened with pleasure, it
contained ham, ham-salmon, beef,
cheese, pickels, au assortment of
fine cakes, pie, bread, meat, etc
It was so far better than the ra
tions they used to have in the
army when we did our own cock
ing, he had to oonclude that these
rationns were too nice and too well
prepared to be the production of
men alone, he is sure the ladies
had a prominent part in the pre
paration of them. He wishes to
express his hesrty thanks to the
ladies, to those who thought of
sending him some and to the man
who brought it. We understand
that the ranks of the old Boldiers
are growing thin. A few more
years and they will not need any
more dinners here, but I hope they
will be able to feast on better
things.
Nbxt week the girls will be home
from the Mt. Pleasant Seminary.
A very sad thing occurred at Mt
Pleasant last week. A young man
had been to Concord where he got
some booze (probably mixed with
poison) he came home, and that
night while trying to vomit, fell
over the banisters and died.
Knowing that the good book
says it is not good for man to be
alone, T. J. G. Trexler, with a re
•pectable pardoner by the name
of Mrs. B. M. Misenheimer, call
ed at the home of Rev. R. L
Brown, on the morning of the 16th
iu*taut and said th-y had a little
work for him to do. They were i
invited in and s ion they were
made mau and wife and went on
their way a happy couple. Our
best wishes go with them for a
long and happy life.
R. L Brown and wife are visit
ing in Salisbury this week at the

Peruna as a splen- m

which I suffered
for several years.
I took it for sev- i||

“I would not be without Peruna.'
Although it was over ten years ago

wrote it. and give you the privilege to
use it as you see fit. I still use Pe

New Pork, May 17.—President, j
Wilson today reviewed the Atlau- |
tic fleet iu the Hudson Rive? and j
a luncheon tendered to him on j
shore by the city of N >w York told |
a distinguished gathering what j
the oouutry and its navy stood j
for. The great battleships that j
lay iu the river, he said, were j
“Engines to promote the interests j
of humanity.” j
“Tth e inspiring thing about j
America,” the President said, “Is j
that she asks nothing for herself j
except what she has a right to ask |
for humanity itself. We want |
uo Nation’s property; we wish to j
stand selfishly in the way of the |
uovoiupuiouu U1 U U -LI »UIUUi A A A A
Is is not pretention'on our part to
say that we are privileged to stand
for what everp Nation would wish
to stand for and speaking for those
things which all humanity must
desire.”
The spirit which brooded over
the river today, said the President
was “Just a solemn evidence that
the foroe of America is the force
of moral principle, that there is
not anything else she loves and
that there is hot anything else for
which she will contend.”
THE MENACE.
The Menace is doing the nation
the greatest possible service in the
greatest battle for principle that
has ever confronted mankind. It
is a question of truth and right
eousness verses error, superstiti cf
a id deception. On the resu t on
this battle depends the safety oi
onr republio, church- s and homes,
and, whether you believe the as
sertion or not, the situation de
mands the honest and intelligent
consideration of every one. If tht.
statements made in the Menace
are false and contrary to history
Protestants ought tr know it, and,
if they are true. Romanists ought
to know it. If you are being
made a tool of by some eclesias
tic, read; if you are honest and
are seeking light, read ; if you are
s fool and can’t help it, read;
read The Menace. Subscription
