' " N The Salary Bill. ine House committee on Salaries and fees, by a vote" of 8 to 7, reported favorably the Senate bill increasing salaries of the judges of Supreme and Superior Courts to . $3,500. Among those making speeches advocating the hill were C. M. Busbee, James H. Pou, George Strong, Thos. B. Womack, and H. Hayes. These appeared, in re sponse to ..an invitation by the Chair- wan. JUdfs (irarinm nnrl winhorne- arc.; changing the name of the Enter prise Saving and Loan Company to tbe Waxhaw Banking and Loan Com pany; to provide for the election of county commissioners by the people in Union; to authorize Mecklenburg's board of education to borrow money; to provide for primary elections in Craven; to include Stanly, Ashe and Montgomery counties in the act pun ishing the killing of fish with dyna mite. ' ; The following bills passed the third reading: To amend the law of descent which allows all children of a mother to in herit from their mother, whether legi timate or illegitimate; (this law pro vides simply that illegitimate children may inherit from their common mother provided they get nothing that is left by the father) ; to prevent the killing He declared that there was a possibil ity that the Senate would so delay the repeal of the anti-jug law as to make the enactment of the present bill im possible. On the other hand if the bill was allowed to pass the House ; with those counties deserving exemption placed there no harm would be done them, while the prohibition counties would obtain relief. 'Murphy opposed immediate action, saying it was ridicu lous to vote on this bill before the Sen ate had acted on the other. Should the Senate fail to repeal the present law it would remain in force as now. He moved to postpone further considera tion until the Senate had acted on the repeal bill. If the present law was re pealed he would vote for the McNinch bill after his county and such other counties as desired it had been exempt ed. McNinch and Turlington spoke squirrels in the county of Jones and against postponement, while Woodward Punctual Franklin; to provide for the holding of primary elections in Buncombe county; to protect fish within twelve miles of the summit of Grandfather's Mountain, in Mitchell county; resolu tion of the Senate to pay Governor's expenses of his inauguration, (the res- printed olution authorizes the Auditor to draw his warrant on the State Treasurer for - the amounts set forward in the resolution; the entire amount does not exceed $500 ; ) to fix the time for selling real estate for taxes in Jack son county; to relieve the board of ag riculture from contributing to the cur: rent expenses of the Agricultural & Mechanical College at Raleigh. Scales said he did not oppose the bill but it should go before the committee on appropriation, as although it-relieved me board of agriculture from contri buting to the college, it provided for an appropriation. Mr. McLean, chair man of the agricultural committee which reported the bill favorably, ask ed the bill be not referred. He asked that his original bill , which was set for a special order be withdrawn and a bill which carried unanimouslv in the House containing the same re ports, be substituted. Mr. McLean said the board of agriculture should not appropriate their funds to the Agri cultural Mechanical College; that these amounts should not come from the pockets of the farmers alone. He of Wilson, Warren, Mitchell, Murphy of Buncombe, Wood and Wmborne favor ed it. McNinch before the motion for postponement reached the vote agreed that the bill should be made a special order for Thursday. It was ordered FLOWERS THAT TELL TIME.

The House resolution on the Lacy. bill, the special order for yesterday was taken up. Mr. ' Foushee said he earnestly hoped the resolution would pass.

The following bril liant sermon was contributed to the. Sunday Sun by the Rev. H. H. CJark, , D. D., chaplain of the United , States Naval Academy, at Annapolis. 'It is entitled "The Unlooked-For Incre ment," and was . preached . from the text: . "Behold, I have done according to Thy words; Lo! I have given -thee a wise and understanding heart. And I have also given thee that which thou hast not asked." II Kings, iii., 12-13. Solomon's request .is a surprise. Left to the promptings of ambition it is not characteristic of men to ask for simple gifts or few; The- natural re quest would have been for the things the King did not ask Kg. life, riches, honor, victory over enemies. Instead the request was simple and. unselfish. It was made, with a most becoming humility. It was for a wise and under standing heart. This would be enough. Then came the Jehovah's answer: . "I have given thee a wise and understand ing heart. And I have also given thee that which thou hast not asked.'V This was increment, increase, that Solomon i had not counted on. - How much is. involved in doing the right thing at the outset!

"New York Times. asferfor a long. life: yet long life was involved in a wise and understanding heart The.man who sets out to do his duty in all respects should not trouble himself about the number of his days. Let .him live the life, and. whether it be long or short, it is a life. But the chances are that it will be long. It has been noted in armies that the men who are fussiest about living are frequently the men who do hot pull ; through. Xenophon noted this fact more than 2300 years ago. In the Anabasis, we recollect, when Clearchus and other leading Greek Generals had been slain in the tent of Tissaphernes through the bad. faith of. the Persians the Greek army, in the heart of the enemy's country, was greatly discouraged. Then Xenophon addressed the- army in words like these: "I have observed this,' O men, that as many as desire to live by all means in military af fairs, these for the most part die cow ardly and, disgraced. But as many as recognize that death is common and necessary to all men, and strive to die honorably, I see these, by some means or other, arrive at old age,' and while they live live successfully." The same truth applies to happiness. Counters and shelves are crowded with books on happiness: "The Art of Hap piness," "How To Tie Happy" count jess titles," ringing the changes on hap piness. The pursuit of happiness is the quest of the day. Many - people are pounding the drum of happiness so hard as to smash the, drum. The truth Is, only fitness for happiness brings it. Aman never caught it by running after It- It is a rainbow; with its pot of gold, that must come to us, and come when we are lqt expecting it.. , Tliejiappiness seekers" are the happiness losers. The man who achieves happiness , is the one's family to moral degradation be cause of lack of a competence these are but st few of tbe evils of poverty. To men in such circumstances. Christ said, "I know thy poverty." Who bet ter could understand? Had He not as an eldest son seen something of sordid economies in that carpenters home at Nazareth? Had He not as a widow's main support suffered in the harsh limitations of a Galilean peas ant's lot? Had He not at times been deprived f a place; to lay His head? It was for your sake He became poor. Pacific Baptist. Shall Know Hereafter. What Is apDroved by God honor Him, resembles Him must be made successful, triumphant and- predom inant, in His empire. He will not for ever suffer the enemy's camp on His erand field.' The awful mystery, why; this trumphant ascendancy Is so slowly. achieved, so long delayed in this world, will, it is reasonable to believe, be one of the subjects for illumination in a higher suite of existence, where en larging faculties will have endless duration for their exercise. It may then be seen that the whole course of this world, from the beginning to the end, was "a day of small things," aa compared with the sequel only as a brief introduction to an immense andt endless economy.

We all know that a good life and humble testimony to the goodness and faithfulness of God have a xef y great influence for good on theminds of all act, said the right word, offered tne right prayer, put ourselves in the right n w.niln in vTi irV ?m vnt morwiiieihitifit muv, v. tt f T-kS-trtno. -Twvtri- I ness: oniv uui lourjuesi ;uw cutu ceases, xiicu waj ui arxiii .iv,j- ... , -,!.- - . . rtanno ?es Anotiofl in nnr Hrps.

In justice were the highest sources of his orditiarv circumstances we all know honor. For wisdom and justice he is well enough, what : the jright thing is. In the Old Testament a well-known character said: "I, being in the way; the Lord led" me." Theseeret of it was that Eliezer started on the right who see and hear; but how does prayer help? In the firsfcplace, prayer, if it be true prayer an earnest and comment man who . has.; mimed for something appeal to God for the blessing sought- tgher. Think nothing about happi- hasa; wonderful effect upon, tne cnarac- ter1 of the" person who offers it. Such L prayer brings the petitioner into close fellowship with God and opens his whole nature to the influence of the Spirit of God; and by so doing fits him to become a zealous and effective wit ness for God.

In the sim plest, honestest manner the disciples put; themselves in right relations to Christ, and their act changed - the course of history. " Admiral Farragut touched this truth on another side. Mn the darkest days of the Civil War the President called him to Washington for consultation. The people were finding fault with this General and that - General, with thj President, with, pretty much every thing. .One evening in a large com pany the Admiral sat listening to the complaints of the hearthstone warriors. At length he said in quiet tones, but with tbe strength of moving fleets in them: "I have one great advantage I have only to go where I am sent." The thing in hand occupied him ab sorbingly, wholly. What he sought was the wise and understanding heart things that were not asked for were in due time given.. The surprise of life often lies in the insignificance of the means to some great end. People in the navy know that the smallest thing connected with a great gun is the most indisnensabie the firins: pin. That gone, and the gun, so to say, is on the shelf. In the army one of the smallest duties of the cavalryman is the car ina for his horse. There is an instance in history where cavalry that did this duty weir and cavalry that did it ill, otherwise equally matched, fought a battle, in which those who neglected their horses were cut down almost to a man. Doors to great events swing outward on little hinges. Art and reli gion and education and war abound with decisions and acts ana inciaents, small in themselves as mustard seeds. yet so growthful that great events and great deeds have come and lodged In the branches thereof. Let ua also treasure the words of the - I look upon things negatively and to pre sent them negatively to others, ana then we must help those we would1 save to develop a desire for positive truth."
