First in Profession, But no tl
Where in Practice. 1,
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
",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
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.

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

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

The One Crop Idea.
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.

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,

the slmalh .t amount of food con
ismed. Buyacan fron your dealer

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

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.
