ONE DOLLAR PER YEAR.
A MAN OF GENIUS. l ! ouCijiriai trace... There is nothing comparable within our limited knowledge, to the success of Senator Thomas P. Gore. Other blind men have wrought wonderfully in the realms of authorship, and even in sculpture, but as we recall, they were not deprived of sight before obtaining an education. Milton wrote "Paradise Lost" and Pre scott his famous "Conquest . of Peru, ' ' after being deprived of giffht, but both had stored, their jniads with the treasures that come through the "Eye Gate" through long years, of reading. The blind Senator from Oklahoma. was left in physical' darkness iri tis ninth year, just as the rudi ments of his edication were beinsr installed. Since then he -has not looked upon the face of man nor ipon the printed page, but at the ige of thirty-nine he occupies with koior a seat in the highest deli berative body in the world and is recognized as one of the most bril liant and scholarly men in public life. It is literally true that he represents a fctate ne nas never He has triumDhed in a field in which a man needs two good eyes, for more is revealed in a glance than in many words. He ii a wonderful orator, yet he miss es the inspiration that comes from the upturned faces and kindling eyes of his audience. But he knows something of what Henry JL Wise said was "the sweetest iicense that ever filed an orator's nostrils the applause of an ap preciative andience." He has a face as handsome as Apolio's,. a Toice as musical aa the rippling brook, and a humor as genial as Zeb Vance's. He plays upon the emotions as did Mozart upon a athedral organ. He possesses to a wonderful degree that indefin able something which Clay and Blaine and Bryon and? other mas ters of men iave wielded person al magnetism. But we set out to poiat a moral. The First is that there is a place in politics for am honest man. Brilliancy without konesty soon comes to grief. Our second point is that, all things are possible to the boy who has the jrit. Mind is superior to matter, and man to circumstances. We caanot clinch the point better than by quoting the following Mies: 'Don't give up hopinglwhen the ship goes down. Grab a spar or something- just re fuse to drown, Don't think you are dying just be cause you are hit. Smile in the face -of danger,' and hang to your grit. 'Folks die too easy they sort of fade away; Hake a little error and give up in dismay. Kkd of a man that's needed is the mian of ready wit. Te laugh at pain and trouble and keep up his grit. Ex. .

V ' : There are other things which "we must remember to form a rational idea about the, solubility, digesti bility and absorption and assimi lation of our food and these are : 1. The growing use of organic salts of minerals for therapeutic purposes rather tha. nthe minerals alone, as atoxyl in place of arsenic and peptofer; their uses are daily increasing ; as more easily assomi lable. . 2. -The growing use of organo therapeutic preparations, such as thyroid, adrenalin. g From thes facts it is evident that later on, we will have to de pend more and more upon &?;"1 sources than either upon vege bles or upon , minerals alone, both for our. medicine as well as food, specially invalid cases. This also gives us some suggestions as re gards the relative soubility, and assimilability of the -animaj and vegetable food, specially in the earlier growing period of life. This is an important hint for the proper selection of the kind of food, specially suited for our chil dren at the present age, when their body-building health; vigor and vitality are run down-so low. f-Journal of the, Calcutta (India) Medical-Club, 'ssrss THE REPUBLICAN GAME. Still At Their Old Tricks Of Looking After The Negro Vote. " : v - The man who believed it was right in 1900-to disfranchise the ignorant and unfit negro voter will go back on his belief if he votes the republican ticket in North Carolina. Evidence mul tiplies that it is the purpose of the Republican management to get as -many negroes registered on the last days, of registration this year as possible,- and if the Repub licans could control the Legisla ture they would make such changes as would enable them to register and vote nine-tenths ef the negroes. Therefore the man who honestly believes in white su premacy should be as sure to vote the Democratic ticket as he was in 1900. " To show the" real spirit of theRepublicans, the following communication copied from, the Chatham Record.: - Republicans at the Same, Old Game. "To the Editor: Some people may think that the Republicans do not care for the negro vote, but an an illustration I want to say there were two- old free issue ne groes in New Hope township, , who were cut off in the rearranging of townships and no les than three Republicans called on me the same day for a certificate of transfer for them. I make this assertion, if there was a : Republican regis trar in Mew Hope township fifty negroes would vote in the town this this election. They were a eager for a negro's . vote as they ever were. The first Republican Legislature that , meejs and changes the present election law will put a lot of negroes to voting now. All they need is to have Re publican re gistrars "F. M.

They are zealous also to get as many more negroes i HENDERSONVILLE, N. C,, THURSDAY, OCTOBER 27, 1910. rxMV lit' " i f?

D 'ear : Reynolds : I wish to thank the editor for favoring me with a copy of the Union Republi can containing your reply to my letter to you of a few days ago on the subject of the "local self-government plank" in our .State plat form, and more -especially, do I wish to thank you for your at tempted explanation of the mean ing of the time honored princi ple of -local self-government that it is " as foolish as to define the word "dinner. Dinner "to one man means baeoh and cabbage; to another it may mean pork and beans." All: right, let us stick to your definition of dinner and ob serve where the contortion cal .self-government into meaning local option will lead you. Din ner, according to your explana tion of it,: ? may n mean anything to: eat, therefore, we ought to be explicit" in explanation of "the word. When you order dinner at the. hotel you are ' careful to tell the waiter what you want to eat. You don't leave the servant to guess" what you want. If you want bacon and cabbage you say so, and so order and do not leave it in doubt. , You are particular as to what you want fo eat, and so yon call for the bill of fare, and if on the European : plan the article with the price is attached. Bacon and cabbage., 25 cents. You pay 25 dents, procure a meal ticket from the proprietor and walk into the dining room to eat bacon and cabbage you say dinner - but when you. get into the. dining room you change yourt order from ;a V& eon and cabbage : dinner to a. din7 ner of sirloin stealer' 75 -eents a omelet, 25 cents, French fried po tatoes, - 25 Bents, , celery 25 ients, coffee, 10 cents; a bottle of-imported claret, $1, and conclude the dinner with a saucer of ice cream, 25 cents, with 15 cents for cigars, mak;i?g a first , class . dinner cost ing $3, and when the proprietor presents his bill you refuse to pay on the ground that bacon and cnb bage "meant dinner, and that you had to pay for that before you get into the dining room. vou were trusted to' enter the dining room on a meal ticket that called for bacon and cabbage and when yen got in you changed the bacon and cabbage order of a. 25 cent dinner to a first-class order of $3, and re fused to pay because it' all meant the same thing ''dinner." Now, just look at yourself as others see you. Do you think you appear in the eyes of the observ ing public as an honest man? Whyi the proprietor of the hotel would go right out to a justice of the peace and get a State's war rant for you and. have you on the J chain gang before sundown for obtaining goods'under false pre- j tense. ' , Now, trace the simile of your dinner fraud to the fraud perpe trated upon the Republican con vention at Greensboro in the mat ter of the local self-government plank, as construed by Morehead. Butler, Settle, and excuse me. my friend, but you force me to say it by yourself, and you will see a similarity shockingly true. You went into 4he State convention declaring . that you only wanted local self-government (bacon ana cabbage) and when you got in (I mean got your platform. adopted) you then declare that it means lo- cap option, the fraudulent din ner instead of the bacon and cab bage that you contracted for. . Why didn t you so declare be fore hand? You say now it means local option. Why didn't you say so in the convention ? You say now it means whiskey. If it means whiskey now it meant whiskey "in the convention, and you, Mr. Butler, Mr. -Settle and Itlr.
