First in Profession, But no tl Where in Practice. 1, e, An address to the people of North Carolina, by the Conference of Edu. e cators held on February 13, 1903, a opens with this declaration of princi- tu ple: a ",Profoundly convinced of the p prophetic wisdom of the declaration of the Fathers, made at Halifax, in'~ 1776, that "religion, morality, and b knowledge being necessary to govern.- t ment, schools and the means for edu I cation shall be forever encouraged." i So much for a profession of faith; ' religion is given the first place in this declaration of the Fathers, of "the metlc wisdoa" of which the des- y 44otrl , --t -get eatioa 7 are "profoundly convinced"; but , when it com. s to practical applica- t tion in the common public school system of the country religion is eliminated altogether. The door of a the school house is barred against it, t and, in effect, against morality too, for morality is founded upon religion. But if rehligion and morality, as wrl! as knowledge, are necessary to go,,d government-and we have the declar ation of the Fathers for it,-then it follows that a system of public edu cation in which they are discarded is fatally defective. There is no escape from this conclusion. Things are 1 out of joint under present conditions, and a revision is in order. The declaration of the Fathers should be changed so as to conform to tLe practices of their descendants, or the practice of the latter must be altered so as to accord with that declaration of principle of "the pro phetic wisdom" of s hich they are so "profoundly convinced." Which shall it be ? A Sure Thmng It is said that nothing is sure ex cept death and taxes, but that is not altogether true. Dr. King's New Discovery for Consumption is a sure cure for all lung and throat troubles. Thousands can testify to that. Mrs. C. B. VanMetre of Shepherdtown, W. Va., says "I had a severe case cf Bronchitis and for a year t: ied every. thing I heard of, but got no relief. One bottle of Dr King's New Die covery then cured me absolutely." It's lnfalliole for Croup, Whooping Cough, Grip, Pnuemonia and Con sumption. Try it. It's gearasteed by All Druggists. Trial bottles free. Reg. sizes 50c, $1.00. Mrs. W. 11. Itsgan had the misfor. tune of losing her father Mlr. Joseph Crabb who died in Memphis, Tenn., on the 18th, inst. We reproduce the following short biography from a Memphis paper: ',4e had been among the real work ers from whose efforts progress and prosperity of this city had come for a period of fifty years or more, and yet his life was so unpretentious and his disposition so devo;d of aelfseek ing that he was really known only by those with whom he came in contact in a business way. Coming to this country from Scotland in early life, a well-trained and intelligent printer, he shortly thereafter located in Mecm phis and at onee gained a solid place in the conlildence and esteem of the fraternity. Scrupulously faithful to every duty, the general public had little oportunity to learn his sterling worth as a citizen, for the reason that business and home received his undivided attention. Among the printers of Melmphis, employing and employed, no member of the craft held higher ral.k for efficiency, loyal ty and integrity." Bradstreet shows a imall diminua tion in the cost of articles ranged Un der the heading of living expenses. Breadstuffs and meats are now slight ly cheaper than they have been for *he past two years, but the decrease ia decidedly too small to cut a figure of any matenal benefit. It may be, bowever, that this is the beginning of a reduction that will continue un til the man of limited means will ap preciate its benefits. Living explenses are now exceedingly high and the poror man feels the situation most keenly. Dissolution Notice. The firm of Badeaux & Wagner composed of Edward Badeaux and ) John A. Wagner, is this day dissolv. ed by mutual consent. Elward Badeaux assumes all assets and liabilities. (Signed) EDwAau BADIEA'X, JoIN A. WAONER.

The following interview copied Sfrom the Crowley Sig'al shluld be a leeson that a great many of our Sfarm-rs could heed with proit. as it applies as well to this section as it does to Crowley: "-You rice pcop!e are stlii:cd witl. the same disease that afficts our to cotton planters. You are one crop ji planters, and when you experience t even a partial failure it hurts you. k "In spite of many short crops and s even total failures, we are this ye:ar c again putting every acre of our land 2 to cotton, and I supiose you farmers 'I aie doing the same thing here- planting only rice. f "One reason why we plant only c cotton is that we have to depend on a black labor, entirely, and cotton isl the only crou a negro is fit to raise. I It requires not nearly so much hoe- i ing as corn and the land does notl have to be prepared as carefully. a We might raise corn and vegetables r if we only had the white labor. "But this ebjection does not affect 'I you, since your labor is largely white. I Tber&se a to be m goed- rm r why you should not raise other grain I besides rice, as well as live stock, r poultry and vegetables. Your rice is a a very profitable crop, but a one crop country is always in a bad way when that crop is short." Justice in Louisiana. In the acquittal of the negro. I Albert Williams charged with the = murder of Gus. N. Grant, a white I man prominently known in this part of the State, the fact is clearly exem plified that there is no such thing as a law for the white men and ia se parate law for the negro in this State. Albert Williams was tried by a Jury of twelve white men, who actld ac cording to the law and evidlece to the best of their ability, regardless of the color of the man a skin. The evidence seems to hi:ve been very much in the negro's favor, and this, coupled with the charge of Judge Hall, that the negro had as much right in the swaump as Gr:nt and as mach right t. piotect himst:f, served to make the jury bring in the verdict of acquittal. Such examples of even handed justice will show the Northern people 'hat there is as much justice in Louisiana for the negro as anywhere in the North, and a great deal more than his been dl.pla,ht d in Illinois and Indiana, where the blacks are tldriven out because they ask for work. -Rachland Beacon ctles. I have had occasion to use your Black.Drught Stock and Poultry Medl. dce and r. pleased to say that I never used saything for stock that gave half as good satlaction. I heartily recom.n mend it to al owners of stock. J. B. BELSHER, St. Louis. Mo. Sick stock or poultry should not eat cheap stock foAd any more than sick persons should expect to be caed by food. When your stock and poultry are sick give them mod icine. Don't stuff tlhem with worth less stock foods. Unload the bowels and stir up the torpid liver and the animal will Ie curedl, if it be poessi ble to cure it. Black-Draught Stock and Poultry Medicine unIcads the bowels and stirs up the torpid liver. It cures every malady of stock if taken in time. S,.c're a 2.-cent can t of I3lack-I[raught Stck and Poultry Medicine and it will pay for itself ten timesover. Horses work better. Cows give mnore milk. Hogs pain flesh. And hens lay mnr eggs. It solves the problem of making as much blood, lesh and tenergy a pos*ible out of the slmalh .t amount of food con ismed.

The Pasteur Treatment. ie A dispatch from Baltimore, of deic May 26th, carries the gratifying news that the fourteen patients bittenu by a mand dog in St. 3alsy 'Paish, recently, and senit up there for tre atmunil, are all doiung uicely The dispatch tro lceels to say: a The wouiidl on all the patients ir have alre:idy healed nicely. h'rof. it Ketrle, Ilhtrectol of the PasteEc Insti tute, sntd tenmght : it saThe Paiditur treatment ts not a cure, but a prevenution. and should t, Lk used imediiatcly af'cm the ci.os -, to insure safety. It consists of in. jections of virus fixed three-eighthq, that is, a virus which will invariably kill an animal in ten days. The spinal corns are attenuated by desie c:ation in dry air at a temperature of 23 degrees centigrade in a dal k room. The treatment is begun with a cord having been sulbmittetd to desiccation for twelve 4days. Then come thet cordls of 11. 10, 9i, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, and 1 day's contact willth dry air. The I rinciple is the same us in diphtheria. A child that has had diphtheria is immune to it for some time. Similar ly a person with injr'ctns in their system of a rabbit th.at has had rabies. as it were, gets in the state of the child that has had cliplitheria. To put it in language that is more popular than sciant tle, they have had rabi-s by prosy. The deal--rabbht has had it for the livirg man. The rabbit system, now proof against a second attack of raie.-s, is injected( into the man's system, so whln the poison of the bite begiin, there is no food for the disc: se to work on. The rabbit system has been worked al ready, and the rabbit's now immune spinal marrow injected into the human lbody renders the man proof against the disease. Everytlhing de pends on taking the treatment before the poison begins to work "The very foundation of I'a .teur's treatment is prevention, not cure. Once the disease has ,begun to worek in the human system, no power on earth can aveit the lii 4t te.rrible pain a:,lI death known to seil.nce. The Pasteur treatment is to prevent the d:sease beginning to work. "Caute~lling is useless unless done a few sectndis after the hite with fuming nitni acid." It is now clear Ihat thlie Lotlsiara oil field is excecding y extensive. At sev ral points in the State oil wells have been, and at m,,r,: points may 1w, sunk with profit. .lennings con tinues to "bring in"' paying wells At Welsh the situ:ation i- hi:gh'y sa:tisfac tory, the Id scoveries there be.lng con sideraht'e in quiantity ::nild i quality, unexcelled byv any oil Iroduced in this country. In this field great developments are assured for the near future. The ,lamon filud has prodlucedl some wells, while Anse la Butte and other poants promise grati. fying results. The "bringing in" of. four mew wells in. Lotisissa hi thi last week proves that the work of developing the oil industry of the State is continuing as actively and as vigorously as ever, even though there be less enthusiasm regarding it.-Ex. --- **--- ~·~--- The universe pays every man in his own coin; if you smile it will smile upon you in return; if you frown you will be frowned at; if you sing you will he invited into gay company; if you think you will be entertained by thinkers, and if you love the world and earnestly seek for good there is there, you will be sur rounded by loving friends, anid nature will pour into your lap the treasures of the earth.
