NORTH i ,' The audden passing at his home in Raleigh yesterday of Dr. Harry M. » North, presiding elder of the Raleigh t district ot the Methodist Episcopal Church, South, removed one of the loading churchmen of that denotrU » nation in the State. Hd was one of half doaen ablest preachers in the North Carolina Conference, and was £ pa executive almost without a peer in * thp management of conference affairs IS* counsel always was sought on mat- 1 ~ ters pertaining to the welfare and de velopment of the denomination in the - Mate, and everywhere he was known he was loved and respected. Dr. North began preaching in his » very early manhood. His college ca * * j-yer was a brilliant one. so much so that when the old Trinity Paik prep . school was operated as an adjunct to • Trinity College, he was made Its headmaster and was its administrative ’ authority for several years. But he left his place was in the active minis _ try and he returned to it. He held some of the highest charges in his denomination in this State, notable among them being churches in Dur ham. Raleigh. Rocky Mount and Wil mington Mote recently he had been in the eldership, and a year ago was placed in charge of the Raleigh dis trict the annual conference last November, the territory in which Hen - derson is located was transferred to the Raleigh district under the super vision of Dr. North. He held hfe first quarterly conference of the new year In this city only last Sunday, and it proved to be his last anywhere. He made a strong impression on the large congregations that -heard him in the *«fiwoon at the First Metrtodist church and in the evening at City soad. The quarterly conferences for ' fef tigo were held together at City . Road In the evening, and the master ful manner in which Dr. North hand led the business was commented upon. The Methodist Church i n North * Carolina Is richer for the life and de votion of Harry North during the ynnrs of his ministry. It is poorer " today because h® has gone away. TROUBLE AT HOME «• Without a solid front at home, no na tion can indefinitely carry on an ag gressive military campaign abroad. aDd Japan seems just now to be slip ping into just that sort of predicament. A demonstration of students has been tta&ed in Tokyo against their country's invasion of Chinese territory at Shang- At&i. and. while they were arrested for carrying red banners, the incident fopa to show that not all is well back home. • Likewise, there is more to that red bapppr the students flung to the bipaaa tßan merely a protest against aggression In China. If the young men who carried out their demonMm tlon are leaning toward the doctrines of the Russian soviet, it is easy to gsad between the lines that Russia, if and when she is forced to show her fcsftd in the Far East, will not be found riding with the Japanese. That would be in line with the general impression of conditions that have prevailed. A gear or so ago there were mild rumors of friendly gestures from Moscow to ward China, which to be sure, was no hing for China to be proud of, but rather a gelfiah move on the part of the aovlet government. If war there must be in that part of the world ( no line-up would be more pleasing In the rest of the world or cause lens sdtual uneasiness than for Japan and Russia to wear Ifcsmsalvsa out scratching sash other s faces. The 9hr Mast situation bus many eompUeations. There is agreement that Japan, cramped on a narrow strip of island temUa, is com pelled to seek room somewhere for an ever-increasing population. She turned to Manchuria and occupied that rich territory be longing to China. With Shat accomplished, and without advance intimations as to what her plans were, she jumped down to Shang hai to force abandonment of the boycott put Into effect by the Chinese in retaliation for the seizure of Man churia. But Russia is not as disin terested as the rest of the world may think. Her eye le peeled in a close watch upon developments. The aovlet is not likely to get far In stirring up strife of its own making in Japan pro per. but the demonstration of the stu dents goes to show there Is not the perfect unity and harmony of purpose among the Japanese people over the Shanghai invasion that could be wish ed for, and which one would consider an emential if a foreign aggression is to be a success. Moreover politi cal observers have predicted that within the present decade there would be a political revolution In Japan. The student uprising may be but the first faint rumhUngs of a desp-eeated un rest that lies just underneath the sur face. PRESSING THE FIGHT North Carolina this week-end is the base of operations for the Allied Cam paigners, a group that is touring the country in defense of the eighteenth amendment and the furtherance of its retention in the Constitution. Hen derson tomorrow will hear two speak ers of that organisation, when Oliver W. Stewart speaks at the First Bap tist church at 3 o'clock in the after noon, and Dr. Ira LnndrfLh appears in an address at the court house in the evening. Both men will, of course, argue the cause of the prohibit ion law. but both dry and wet will find much of interest in what each of them will say. This Is not the first time Dr. Landrith has spoken In Hendetaon. Some six or seven yeare ago he addressed a rally of the temperance forces In this city and made an address that Is remem bered by many who heard him. He is a speaker worth hearing, whether one agrees with this subject matter or not. At one time he was a candidate for vice-president of the United States on the prohibition ticket, and he is known throughout the country as an orator that ranks well up among the best. Realising they are on the defen sive, and that they stand to lose if a change is made the drya are aroused and are not allowing the grass to grow under their feet. The campaign now being pressed in North Carolina Is but one phase of a nationwide fight which fa carrying the battery of ora tors into every State and to nearly 600 cities and towns. The speakers who come here Satur day will be well worth hearing, and certainly the friends of temperance owe It to their cause to hold up the hands of these men who are baring their breaste to the enemy. They ought to have a good hearing when they come here. FELLOWSHIP Os # PRAYER <#-; ■ SWLY LENTEN DEVOTION **a>*Aeo dv THE Rev. DWG Hr J.

They walked on Thirty-fourth streu to Sixth avenue, and took the elevated uptown. The train was so crowded that Marcia wondered how one more human being could be wedged into the writhing, swaying, slap-hanging mass, but everyone seemed to take it as an everyday occurrence, so she concluded that it must be. This, then, was not a special occasion when alt the people in New York had tried to crowd Into one train. She was re lieved that their trip proved to be a short one. tuid managed to escape the struggle to the door with not only her arms and legs intact, but her clothes, also. It was like a sham battle, where everyone struggled and bumped and glowered at each other, and escaped calmly and without casual tiea Connie had been carrying sev eral parcels, and Marcia was sur prised to discover that even they had survived The girls descended the stops from the station and walked another long block down a street of houstv set closely together, and so identical, that Marcia wondered how their tenants J*new tn which they lived. There was not even the possibility of identifica tion by a special tree or lawn decora tion. There were no lawns, for the houses were set very close to the sidewalk, and identical iron-railed flights of steps approached all the front doom. Marcia decided that the curtains at the front windows were the solution, -and noted that these varied as no architectural features could have done. Connie had talked most of the way home. pointing out to Marcia various interesting facts that belonged to the city. Now. she said. “I suppose you have heard of the famous brown stone houses of the late nineties. These are part of th«m. but there are endless blocks and blocks of them. I have often wondered how so many v ■ people could haw been persuaded to forfeit their individuality, and par ticularly those people who could af ford to build them. Because they were costly affairs for the time. This one is ours," she Indicated with a ges ture. "How do you know?" smiled Mar cia. "By these absurd scrolls on the failings," laughed Connie, aa she fitted a key Into the lock of the high double-doored entrance. They.entered a high dim hall and were met without delay by a gentle, sad-faced woman who looked as If part of her life had ceased some fif teen years before. Her abundant hair, which had been golden like Connie’s, but was now dulled with out even the enhancement of silver gray, was colfTed high on her head, which was carried proudly. Her close-belted gown with the fitted hlp line and flared skirt of ankle length might have belonged to the latest nineteen-thirty-one mode, had It not definitely the same features of an earlier cycle of fashion. But her voice made immediate amends for these deficiencies In her appearance. It was softly resonant, ttke a dear-toned bell, and ft sounded the note of her personality, which fm kind and gracious, and sweetly plaintive. Hw face brightened when she saw JjlafClm who thought that when this teaman had been secure and loved gM happy, she must have been very beautiful. She marveled that s wom an like that could have survived the pfrpffr of poverty and struggle- Her pwn mother had possessed a sturdier nature, and a mors practical ability' Mrs. Deltz held Marcia’s hand with a gentle appeal.

It isn’t much, but it really la quite comfortable." Marcia looked around the spacious. high -ceilinged room w hich once had represented the height of American elegance In bemea . Plate-glassed bay 1 windows looked onto the street, the gilded chandelier supported decora tive globes of frosted, star-cut glass, the high door and windows were out ; lined with heavy mahogany, and a carved mantel of the same wood was surmounted by a large mirror and • candlesticks. It had been the parlor : of the mansion. Now, a brass bad retreated into one corner as if conscious or its errone ' ous intrusion, and an oak dresser partially concealed its background of ' high double doors, that bad once of -1 sered hospitable access Into other ■ spacious rooms.

"I’ll take It. even though I haven’t ’ asked you how much tt is." Marcia * declared. "And for fear you might r rent It to eemeone else. I’ll pay a •. week In advance here and now."

Bhe was an Intellectual woman, who drew hack from her forced con tact with life's realities, yet coped with them at a reserved distance. Her attitude had affected Connie’s life to such an extent, that it was not sur prising the girl made few friends, and was bitter about Use In youth. She had lived every reaction of her mother’s tragedy—not as Marcia had sltared her mother's problems, and then been free to develop her ova life and philosophy. Connie’s was warped by too-constant association with, and concern for. her mother. She had been sacrificed to a broken past.
