Would Have the Bib'.c Taught
Tho Rev. R. P. Kerr, D. D.. preached
Sunday at the First Presbyterian
Church on "Lawlessness.'' lu the course
of his sermon Dr. Keer took occasion lo j
remark that il was his wish that the j
Bible could be taught as a text-book m j
the public schools. Dr. Kerr said in part: ?
"? nere is a drift union?? American peo- ]
lile towards lawlessness and anarchy. 1
do not lake a pessimistic view of the
situation, but an optimistic; believing
that the evil tendency will be stopped
and that the good people of this coun?
try will rule its affairs. But it is a
serious blow at the majesty of the law
and the authority of the courts for tho
people to lake the executive of law in
their own hands and inllict terrible pun?
ishment upon alleged offenders. One ot
the saddest facts in connection with this
matter is that we arc getting used to this
thing and that it docs not have the in?
dignation which it once did when we
read the daily, accounts of lynching.
Xorth and South.
'.'The remedy for this, I believe, to' bo
to teach all the people to fear Cod and'
ke?. his commandments, for only as they
arc taught to reverence God will they
reverence law and the civil majesty. This
can be done only by teaching the people tho
Bible. 1 wish the Bible fcbuld be taught
as a text-book in the public schools, not
iti a sectarian way, for surely it is not
sectarian to teach children the Ten Com?
mandments, the twenty-third? psalm, the
twelfth chapter of Ecclesiastes, the ser?
mon on Uie mount and the thirteenth
chapier of First .Corinthians on Charity.
There is little or no prospect of tlie i>i
blc's being taught in the public schools,
mere's the pity, and the church of God
must put forth all its resources to leach
the masses rind the classes, the rich and
th?? poor, tin; corporations and the la?
borers, the gospel of Christ. The only
place where tho antagonisms between
capital and labor can be solved is at the
foot of Christ's cross."

Wells-Whilehead People Believe This to Te
the Last ?'??; of the A. T. Co.
Representatives of tho Wells-Whiteheael
Tobacco Company, of Wilson, N. C, who
have been in this city for the past week
or more, believe that this last move of
the American Tobacco Company to run
tne Carolina Brights" cigarette off the
market to be the final gasp of the trust,
so far as apposition is concerned. A
former attempt to crush the intlepenelent
article was a disastrous failure, and the
Wells^Vhilehead people and their friends
confidently expect this ,atest effort to go
the same direction. This time they believe
the trust will lind quU to its entire sat?
isfaction that the. "Carolinas" have come
on the field to stay, and .will hereafter
cease its efforts to chase the popular
brand off the field.
i.etail dealers have taken advantage of
the scheme of the American Tobacco j
Company to sell twelve packages of its
, "Virginia Brights" cigarettes- for twenty
| five cents. The dealers buy up a lot of
i the cigarettes themselves, getting them
! thus considerably below the wholesale
? price, anel sell them at the regular rate.

Making Heavy Purchases In Danville
While denials come from various sources
that the American Tobacco Company is

doing so for-some time, and that so far
as can be learned, it will continue to d?)
>.ot only; this, but tlie American Com
?pany is pursuing a like policy in oth'.-r
places. Letters just received here from
Danville slate that the company is going
it at the same rate there. Whether this
means that the trust is making a shrewd
move to keep this tobacco out of litig?

Company is merely replenishing itslstp?k.
is a matter ol" conjecture. Many local to?
