It is not too much to say that the development of modern civilization has been assisted by no agent so powerful as the newspaper ; and the progress of all trade enterprises and inventions which has distinguished this century, and more especially the last generation, has been accelerated by no means more effectual than news paper advertising. The advertisement brings together the seller and the buyer, the supply and the demand as in former times and to a comparatively limited extent they were brought by the fairs and market day. By thus facilitating and vastly increasing their means of communication, it has helped to reduce prices, to stimulate the competition and emulation from which comes improvement in production and to multiply the demand for the materials and the appliances which contribute to the advancement of civilization.

As far as this life goes it can reach no further than the ideal home. It is the inspi ration of patriotism and has prompted men to deeds of daring that read like romance. It is related by a Southern writer that in some of the battles in the rich Shenandoah valley the young Virginians "fought like mad men" against fearful odds. They were in sight of their lovely homes and faced fire and ball and shell to protect them from the invader. That was patriotism that commanded the admiration of the world, but the thought of home was at the bottom of it. In these rapid days is not the home idea too often lost sight of ? Is this not especially the case in the great cities of this country? New York has its gilded and gorgeous palaces and it has its myraids of tenement houses, but neither are paradises in which angels might dwell. There is less real home life to the square inch on that island than any other city in America. In summer many of its abodes are veritable hells and at night the poorer inhabitants have to flee to the parks in search of comfort and health. They spend their days trying to keep soul and body together. "The rich are busily engaged trying to accumulate more wealth. There is probably no more real happiness within the palace gate than in the tenement. In the pursuit of ambition's dream, which, with the average American, is to make money, too many forget the ties of home. It was not always thus and will not be so always. We will get over it after awhile under better laws. Then the wealth of the country will be more evenly distributed and the great middle class will be built up. There will be fewer millionaires and paupers; less grasping, less greed, more contentment, more of the spirit of home life and more real homes.

Winston, Delivered June 25th, on the Occasion of the Annual Celebration of St. John's Day. From the Orphans' Friend we take the following portion of Hon. Francis I). Winston's admirable oration at the Oxford Orphanage on St. John's Day. We regret that the address was not published entire. The most elo quent and pleasing part, and which perhaps would prove most interesting to the general reader, is omitted and only that portion which deals more directly with the Orphanage and its work and future is published. Mr. Winston said : There is no clear idea among our j people of the purposes and objects for which this institution was established. There is a general sentimental idea abroad that the Orphan Asylum is a good thing just the place to send boys and girls to get them ont of the community and to keep them from becoming county charges, i Another class of our citizens believe it the main business of this institution to educate boys and girls for the menial positions in life for the cook room and horse lot. j This is no intelligence office to supply the poor with a hostleir or the rich with a footman ; the quai ter with a milk maid or the great house with a chamber maid. The thousands annually expended here are distributed on no such low plane. The first idea here is the protection of the we.alc. the j furnishing of shelter to the homeless and food and clothing to the d estitute and hungry. This is no reformatory to correct the criminal bent and evil habit. Such an institution is needed in North Carolina. The idea here is to rear citizens men and women for the State. It is as imperative to equip these boys and girls for every duty of life as it is to feed, house and clothe them. The development here is physical, moral, ntellectual. It is upon these lines the work is carried on. And it is the duty of those having the institution in charge to furnish the fullest and fairest opportunity for development of man hood and womanhood. In the absence of better equipment the physical training here is confined to light calisthenics, out-door games without danger to life and limb, and work upon the farm and in the shops. The farm and workshops have other uses than mere physical training. Primarily both add to the support of those here enrolled. The work is an intellectual stimulus, by arousing and fixing the attention, and by occupying the mind with other thoughts than its own vicious circle of reflection. It has the moral virtue of teaching application and patience. Incidentally, also, the manual labor teaches a trade or pro fession by which an honest living may be gained. Here should be the primary training school for an industrial educa tion to be completed in our Agricul tural and Mechanical College at Raleigh. I would make this institution preparatory to that. I would make it a part of that system of industrial education now taking such a deep hold on our public mind. In order that there may be laid the foundation for a career in our Mechanical College, there should be placed here such complete outfits of shops as will foster and promote that end. The industrial development upon which we of the South are entering, most strongly appeals to North Carolina to give every opportunity for industrial training. The manufacture of our home products will demand an almost inexhaustible supply of mill superin tendents. The resources ol our mountains in minerals and metals and ores will call for hundreds of mine workers. The diversification of our agriculture, the establishment of stock farms, and the innumerable other enterprises incident to our favored situation will call tor men versed in the practical labors and technical training of the schools. I want this institution to ue me nursery wnere such men are reared. And that there may be the healthy body for the sound mind, the e should be established here better sanitary arrangements, a complete gymnastic outfit, lavatories, and every opportunity for regular and systematic labor. No sane man for a moment questions their importance as factors in educationa life. As there are no private schools that furnish this special elementary indus trial education, I presume it will be safe to say that an enlargement of the work of the Asvlura along that line will meet with very little opposition. Such an equipment can be had at cost prices. The moral training here is entirely without sectarian bias. Here are en forced certain minute rules of con duct and behavior, embracing neat ness of dress or bearing. This discip line has a distinct moral value. It tends to create a standard of conduct and a spirit of manliness. It is ol course accomDanied bv a spirit of guidance and helpfulness, by the in sistence of a moral to an immoral life by nursing the power of discrimina ting between right and wrong and by such religious helps as can be given without sectarian bias. This institution recognizes man as a free agent. It pours out to the chil dren here the great truths uuderlying the Christian life. These are the same in all creeds. Here the mind is left free to choose itsown form of worship. But it is trained to morality, reverence, faith in God and belief in His revealed Word as recorded in the Bible. Less than this would not meet the demands of the noble order having this Asylum in charge, and beyond this it would not for a moment permit its officers to go. The charge of denominational bias, of sectarian administration, may suc ceed for an hour in drawing some support from here, but it will not deter the Grand Lodge of North Carolina and true Christian and charitable people from giving the cup of cold water here, because they do it "in His name." The intellectual training here is much the same as is obtained in our best public schools. The branches taught are those which experience has demonstrated best serve the ordi nary purposes of lite. Up to now the history of education in North Caroli na has taken no account of the life here. The News and Observer, of Raleigh, will soon publish a mam mouth edition of that progressive journal devoted to the educational in stitutions of the State, commencing with the common schools and ending with the University. The name of the Oxford Orphan Asylum does not appear in the prospectus. This is no accidental omission. As now consti tuted, and upon the present intellec tual plane it has no place in such an enumeration of schools. Life here is estimated in casting up the accounts of the Stale as so much spent in caring for the criminal and insane. The work here is found tabulated with the criminal statistics and inourpenalogy. No list of schools in North Carolina contains the name of this institution. And while it is not classed with the jails and prisons, it has stood aloof, and educators have rather looked upon the institution as a place of refuge and safety. They have but followed the general opinion. The future must tell a different story. I ask in the name of the fatherless a broader curriculum. ask that the institution be enrolled in the column of intellectual statistics. I ask that the institution become part and parcel of the intellectual forces at work in North Carolina. Among those forces it should occupy a necessary as well as a prominent place. It should be the stepping stone from our public schools to our great institutions of learning for men and women. 1 nis snouia De tne state s classical schools for preparing orphan boys for the Agricultural College, the Normal and Industrial School and the University. We boast of our system of educa tion. The chain, so tar as the orphan is concerned, has & missing link. The meagre learning of the public school does not equip him for the higher in stitution. That link can be forged here. And this, like the equipment for physical'development, can be had at cost price. And where, do you ask, is the money to come from? I reply, from you and from me. First, in the shape of voluntary donations. The needs of the institution will always appeal to the charitable and generous. It has done so in the past, and we do honor to-day to a distinguished philanthro pist, born in North Carolina, who disburses his charities upon business principles prompted by the teachings of divine Writ, and who, ever ready to help those who help themselves do nates $n,ooo here when the Masons give a like sum. Masonry owes a debt of gratitude to B. N. Duke, the Christian philan thropist. Second, every Mason in North Car olina should give one dollar yearly to the suDDort of this Asylum. I shall propose such a measure in the coming Grand Lodge meeting. There are nearly ten thousand Masons in the State, and we have no right to call on others until we raise $10,000 in addi tion to what we have raised. Third, in donations from the State And here, fellow citizens, comes the rub. We are met with the cry that it is beyond the power of the State to engage in such work. I do not an swer or attempt to answer, so much of that cry as is prompted by interest, whether temporal or spiritual. I never argue with a man who under takes simply to protect his own busi ness. I do undertake to say that the functions of government have broad ened and are broadening, it is a mistake to think of the State as an ideal. I he btate is real. 1 he peo ple are the State. Over no other question is the struggle between the old spirit and the new likely to be more severe and prolonged than over the question of State interference The rivalry between the old spirit of no State interference and the new spirit of State guidance and aid, has iu the past checked progress in every form of development. It is now most aggressive in the matter of education. There is no more lasting and natu ral distinction between the educated and uneducated classes of which we hear so much, than has been between other classes in the past. The evolu tion, of society tends to the. equality of all men, and to the breaking down of barriers between all classes; not to pull down the high, but to elevate the low; not to pauperize the rich, but to make comfortable the poor. Citizen and slave, patrician and pie- bian, feudal lord and serf, privileged classes and common people, leizured classes and working masses. These terms are no longer set in opposition to one another. The citizen has not become a slave, yet the slave has be come free. The arulf between them has been bridged. But two more bar riers stand to divide society into classes wealth and knowledge. We have the wealthy few as distinguished and set against the many toiling for equality of opportunity. We have also the educated set against the igno rant and unlettered. Already these two harriers are beginning to give way under the continuous assaults made upon them for the ' purpose of hastening the true status of man as proper function in our social life. The characteristic feature of legis lation is the increasing tendency to raise the position of the lower classes at the expense of the wealthier classes. This is the real meaning of income taxes and the establishment of fewer hours for a day's labor. Shortening the hours of labor is primarily and above everything else to raise the condition of the life of the workers at the ex pense of wealth, and as a consequence to place the workers more on a footing of equality in the rival of life with those above them. It is the princi ple which is behind all measures which aim at bettering, at the public expense the condition of the lower classes of workers. It underlies the cry for graduated taxation, which cry we may expect to grow louder and in- crease in strengtn ana importunity. It is the basis of those demands, now all but nebulous and visionary, which in the near future will take practical shape for the revision of the hereditary rights of wealth and the conditions under which great fortunes are trans mitted from generation to generation. The demand for equality of oppor tunity, voiced in this species of legis lation is sure to result in the more equal distribution of wealth and the consequent elevation of the many. There is but one other monopoly for the few; and that is the monopoly of education. The same principle that underlies graduated taxation will sure ly underlie our education legislature for the future. The demand for a considerable extension of the educa tion founded by the State and for State control in the interest of the peo ple of high as well as of elementary 1 education, is the last cry for absolute equality of opportunity. It is met in the main by those engaged in denom inational educational enterprises. The politicians of the old laissez faire school view the interference of State as revo lutionary. They viewed the establish ment of the common school with the same degree of horror. The State is usurping the individual function," was the cry when Calvin H. Wiley dedicated the first public school to the service of the ragged youth in North Carolina. "The State is usurping the individual function," is the cry to-day when a generous State makes it possi ble for a mountain boy to walk to the University of North Carolina and re ceive its highest honors, supporting himself with menial employment and with funds donated hy a generous pub lic. My friends, the State is no longer a big policeman whose sole function is to preserve order. The cry that "all men are created equal" is hollow mockery to the man who has not the opportunity to rise. The crushing of barriers has written another maxim of government "all men should have equality of opportunity." In the era upon which we are now entering there will be no restriction of the interfer ence of the State, but there will be a progressive extension of the sphere of action to every department of our so cial life. I am no alarmist. I am no socialist. I can only view as you may do the gigantic problems which loom across the threshold of our new century. They surpass in magnitude any that civilization has heretofore en countered. The greatest of these are State's control. The movement in the direction of the State's regulation, control and restriction of the right, wealth and capital must be expected to continue. The State will assume these rights when it is clear that their retention in private hands will inter fere with the rights and opportunities of the body of the people. It will do so not for dts'.roying competition but to prevent the destruction in private hands and in order to preserve or se cure free competition. With State control there can be no trust and monopoly of education. It is the pa triotic duty to labor for broadening the scope of the State's influence, su pervision and control. From them none but blessings can come. Denial of all State interference will inevitably tend to ownership. A greater evil cannot be feared. Here is the field for that conservatism which has ever characterized North Carolinians. Equality of opportunity is the cry of the nineteenth century as it lays open its heart for splendid achievement. It is the burning faggot it hands to the incoming cycle of years to light man kind on to grander victories. I read in the Bibical Recorder of a month ago a statement that the boot blacks in Washington City had better opportunities of education than the average boy in North Carolina. The duty of the State is to give and make opportunity for its poor sons and daughters. In its comments upon the closing exercises of the A. & M. College two weeks ago the News and Observer said: "One young man won a prize at the A. & M. College who walked from his mountain home to obtain an education. He arrived in Raleigh without money. He will be heard from. It is such young men who be come the State's greatest citizens." This one announcement a thousand fold repays me every dime I have con tributed in taxes in the support of that State institution tor the sons of the farmer aud the mechanic. These two comments, the one showing the condition of our youth for want of op portunity, and the other showing the magnificent results flowing from small opportunity tell the story of the State's duty. The principles of Masonry here become the inheritance of society. To help the helpless, to raise up the fallen, to give to all human beings an equal chance in life, to instruct the ignorant, and especially to train up children and to provide for widows and orphans ; these cardinal principles of our order, limited as they were at first in their application, have, by their excellence and ability, commended themselves to the approbation and acceptance of the civilized world. It is now a well recognized function of government to do these things ; and States are deemed honorable and powerful in proportion as they provide for their citizens perfect systems of public charities and public schools. The deaf and dumb, the blind, the weakminded, and even the insane, are given opportunities to labor with their bodies and to employ their minds in honorable and improving thoughts. The orphan child is placed upon the level with the heir of thousands. This is the teaching of Jesus. Masonry first gave it practice and taught the world its sublime beauty and estimable utility. This noble structure, this splendid Asylum, these hundreds of happy children tell the sweet story of Masonry unfolding to society the truths of universal equality of oppor tunity. North Carolina has learned the lesson from Masonry, and now hand to hand our noble order and our strong and beneficent State uphold and demonstrate those principles of philanthropy, of equality, of Democ racy and of justice. If there be any who deny the right of the State to aid this noble institution, they deny the right of the State to act upon the divine teaching of the Son of God. They deny the State the right to exercise itsown functions of sovereignty. They deny it the right to feel, to practice the noblest and strongest principles of humanity, to pour out the milk of human kindness. All hail the State that cares for the poor, the afflicted, the oppressed ! All hail the Srate whose chiefest and largest concern is the education of each generation, leading them with tender and loving care even from the hovel and the brothel to the log schoolhouse, the technical and normal schools, up through the University into paths of usefulness and honor, where they may walk erect and strong, the equals of millionaires and princes. Much has been done for the Asylum, but more remains. It must be equip ped with teachers and apparatus until the boys and girls who have received its training may step from its doors into the halls of the State Normal and Industrial School for women, or the University at Chapel Hill. These orphan boys and girls must be fitted here to go still further and higher. Why kindle here the fire and chain it to the rock f Why incite hopes and aspirations by the furnishing of rudi mentary education here and not give those hopes full play ? How cruel to cage the song bird, take him to the light and let him smell the sweet heather on the mountains, and hear the joyous carol of the birds of the forest, and then darken the cage and shut out all hope of freedom, of light and of song ! Do not arouse in the breast of these orphans a desire to become part of our citizenship, and deny them the opportunity of sodomg.

It has declared for his rights in times ot great peril and maintained them. It will minister to his needs in time of peace. The State is animated by the feelings thit move the heart of men. It hath body, parts and possessions. It votes funds to equip and maintain prisons and penitentiaries. They are the monuments of protection and self-: preservation. It contributes to the maintenance of the common schools and the State Colleges and University. It shows thereby its devotions to intelligence. It lifts shafts of peerless marble to perpetuate the glory of its soldiery. It shows by this act . its patriotsism. It builds a home for the wounded and weary veteran of the I-ost Cause. That is its monument to I gratitude j animate Grand virtues these to a State self-preservation, intelligence, patriotism and gratitude. But a nobler sentiment is animating the heart ot the old North State. It is the sentiment of love, and she rears that monumeut high, clear and inspiring in its majestic proportions when she donates to this cause. There is duty here for the State. It is a duty born of the evil time in which we live the duty to give equality of oppor tunity to the orphan sons and daugh ters of the old North State. Of the many inventions with which the wizard of Menlo Park has as tonished the world, the most wonder ful is the kinetoscope. That is Edison's masterpiece. His theories and inven tions are almost beyond the grasp of men. He has chained the lightning which he garnered in summer clouds and stored it for man's useful purposes. His mechanical invention by means of which the human voice may be preserved and reproduced was indeed a marvel. But the kinetoscope sur passes that in wonder aud amazement By it motion is photographed and sound secured. The words and gestures, the force and form of the orator can be photographed, stored away, and ages hence be reproduced. The fleet racer, the swift moving train, the gentle waving bough, the whisper of love and the acclaim of joy each casts its shadow on the lens. I wish for such an instru ment here to-day in these buildings. I would catch in it the happy voice of grateful childhood grateful for food and raiment, bed and shelter, grateful for being lifted to a higher, better, nobler plane of life. I would photo graph the health and bloom upon the cheeks of these 200 health and bloom that often followed and supplanted the paleness of want and sorrow. I would picture these Grand Officers and Masons, these officials and citizens who have honored us with their pres ence and who glory in individual as well as in State support of this institu tion. With my instrument charged with the grand panorama of giant oak, magnificent structure, spacious grove, cooling shade, joyous children, gener ous people, I would visit every ham let in North Carolina and warm the hearts ot the people by the reproduc tion. But one result could follow such an exhibition. The Oxford Orphan Asylum would become the dearest cause of all good North Carolinians. God speed the day when this institu tion will be above the petty flings of the politician and above the selfish opposition of the pretended philanthro pist, and when all men of every creed will admit that there is here a work for the State to perform.

Every man who would get on in this world should avoid debt, as far as possible. From the very outset of his career he should resolve to live within his income, however small it may be. The art of living easily as to money is very simple : pitch your scale of living one degree below your means. Many a man dates his down fall from the day he began borrowing money. Avoid the first obligation, for that incurred, others follow, one necessitating the other ; then follow pretexts, excuses and lies, till all sense of shame is lost, the whole life becomes a failure, and the debtor in despair finally resolves to live by indirect robbery and falsehood. If you wish to succeed in this world, and live a happy life with a clear conscience, avoid, debt.
