The San ford Express believes North
Carolina is good enough the best
State in the Union in fact and
advises North Carolinians to stay in
the State. Not all will do so of course
but many who go away wish to re
turn while a few may better their
condition. It says:
Stay in your State, is the advice
which the young North Carolinian,
who is about to begin life as a man,
receives from the older and wiser
heads. The educator, the politician,
the commencement orator, all sing
this note into his ear. The young
men are beginning to heed this advice,
which should have been given at an
earlier day. Throughout her history
North Carolina has produced a sturdy
lot of men. Alamance, Moore's Creek
and King's Mountain make note of it,
and the soil of Virginia proclaims it.
Mentally, morally and physically, he
is strong and pure, and if the old
mother could have in most instances
kept those who have gone to other
States at home, she would today be
a much greater Commonwealth than
she is. Of the generation of North
Carolinians, who have come on since
the Civil War, hundreds of those who
were best fitted to advance the State
and make her great and prosperous,
have gone away and helped to in
crease the wealth and prestige of
other communities. Some of the fore
most lawyers, editors, doctors and
preachers of New York City claim
North Carolina as their birth-place.
This State also has many sons of
character and ability in all the States
South of her, as well as in Illinois,
Indiana, Missouri, Kentucky and Vir
ginia, and some of her best sons have
gone beyond the Mississippi to live.
There is no State in the Union that
keeps all of its sons at home and it
is perhaps best that it should not
but North Carolina has suffered more
on account of immigration than any
other Southern State. The time is at
hand, however, when this immigra
tion business will practically cease.
North Carolina is a good State to live
in. Her soil and climate, her fac
tories and farms proclaim it. Her
eople are not tainted with bad
foreign blood and the extremes of
poverty and wealth are not found
here. As the good people of other
States find out these advantages they
will come amongst us to live. Let us
remain in North Carolina, and talk
and work for North Carolina, and
North Carolina will one day be one of
the great States of the Union.

The Pittsboro litcord says this of
the great reunion of United Confed
erate Veterans at Memphis:
The reunion of the United Confed
erate Veterans at Memphis, Tenn.,
was the largest and most interesting
gathering which the veterans have
ever held. This organization unites
in a general federation all associations
of Confederate veterans, soldiers and
sailors, and its purpose is to cherish
the ties of friendship among the old
soldiers, as well as to gather data
for an impartial history of the war
and to lend a helping "hand to the
orphans and widows of dead soldiers.
It has a membership of more than
fifty thousand and is a powerful or
ganization, but it has never in any
way connected itself with politics.
Beautiful Memphis opened wide her
gates, the flowers of May were brought
and all the enthusiasm of the South

met again, some of them for the lat
time. The loyalty of the South to
the Union is today questioned bv no
one. She is as passionately fond of
the flag as any section of the country

Seaboard Air Line Asks Gov. Aycock
for State Constabulary Protection of
Their Shops at Raleigh.
Saturday Mr. J. M. Turner, repre
senting the Seaboard Air Line Bail
way's interests, applied to (lov. Ay
cock for special police to protect the
company's shops in Raleigh and the
men at work in place of the striking
machinists there. The request was
refused the Governor giving his rea
sons therefor while pledging the
power of the State to protect property
and suppress disorder should occas
ion arie. The following correspond
ence explains itself. Mr. Turner
wrote the Governor as follows:
Certain evil disposed persons are
coming upon the premises of the Sea
board Air Line in Raleigh, attempt
ing to persuade our machinists and
workmen to quit, and refuse to cease
coming upon our premises when re
quested. Some persons this morn
ing ignited a fuse and caused an ex
plosion in our round house. The ex
plosion did no damage, but caused
great alarm among our mac hinists at
work. I ask you, under the State
law, that you" appoint four special
policemen to afford protection to our
men and property.'1
To this the Governor replied:
"I decline to appoint these police
men. I believe their appointment
would tend to a breach of the peace
rather than to a preservation of law
and order. The sections of the Code
referred to provide for the appoint
ment of such policemen and likewise
provides that they shall be paid by
the railroad requesting their appoint
ment and that they can be discharged
when the railroad company requests.
These provisions make the policemen
essentially policemen of the railroad
company, rather than ollicers of the
law of the State of North Carolina.
The striking machinists and their
friends would at once recognize that
these policemen particularly repre
sent the company rather than the
State and this would tend to irrita
tion. If persous forbidden to enter
your premises enter, the law of the
State is adequate for your protection.
You can swear out warrants for them
and have them arrested for trespass
ing upon your premises after having
been forbidden. You can employ at
your own expense as many guards
around your premises as may be
necessary to keep off intruders. From
your premises they would have the
same right to evict trespassers as
they would have if they were: police
ollicers. They can certainly protect
your property against laying of fuses
and igniting explosives. 1 do not
recognize, therefore, the necessity
which you seem to think exists for ap
pointment of the police force request
ed by you.
"I deem it proper, however, to as
sure you that any attempt to injure
your property or your men, from
whatever source it may come, will be
met with the full power of the State.
I am not sullicientlv informed as to
the merits of the controversy be
tween the Seaboard Air Line and its
employees to have formed a definite
opinion, but 1 am certain that what
ever the grievances of the strikers
may be they must be worked out
through lawful means. I am assured
by representatives of
men that they will use
endeavors to prevent

concerned I am certain

attach themselves to those of your
employees who have struck I wish it

that the utmost power of the State
will be exerted to preserve property,
peace and life."

"It seems to be one of the frailties
of our weak human nature, even
among men who are considered hon
est, to try to escape taxation and to
list as little of their property as pos

possible. All honest tax-payers are
interested in making other tax-pavers
bear their just share of taxation. "and
the public generally are interested in
having all taxables' listed for taxation
and at their true value.
"It is almost impossible to make
everybody list their taxables in full
and at their true value."
To list property fairly is most im
possible. A man does "not feel will

Plea for the Re-Establishment of the
Whipping Post.
Editor Gold Leaf: Recurring to the
burglary w hich occurred in our town latt
week, it was stated that the prisoners
said they did not mind returning to
prison for it was their home. The only
thing they dreaded was the flogging they
would get next day. The question may
be asked, W hat is the best way to pre
vent such hardened villains from preying
upon property of those striving to make
an honest living.' It is evident that
crime is on the increase, aud that the
penitentiary, work house and similar in
stitutions have proven first-class failures
as reformatories, and are but nurseries
lor criminals, for no sooner do they re
gain liberty, than a majority return to
their old avocations. The more seed
sown in such institutions, the moreabun
dant is the harvest.
No one can doubt ihat our forefathers
possessed sound common sense, aud their
main object was to protect the honest
citizen against that class of pilferers.who
live on otners without giving value re
ceived. 1 hey devised a mode of uunish
ment which, if it did not extinguish theft
did in a great degree check it. They
established the whipping post and
thought it not cruel or dishonorable to
mete out jiunishment to those guilty of
appropnatingother people s property to
their own use. The institution, as long
as ii remained, was a terror to evildoers

Mrs. M. Augusta Solomon Judd. the j
devoted and fondly beloved wife of Dr.
W.J. Judd, died at o o clock a. m., on i
23rd of May, 1901, at her residence in
Henderson, after a long and painful ill- j
ness, leaving a neart-Droken nusoano,
six children, one sister, (Mrs.J.C. McCraw
of Warrenton, N. C.) one brother, (Rev.
Dr. .1. B. Solomon, of Chicago.) und a
multitude of friends to mourn their irre- j
parable loss. So calm and peaceful was i
the ascension ot that gentle spirit to
Heaven that it left a sweet smile on
every feature which seemed to say: "It
is well with my soul I am at rest and
happy with my Saviour aud loved ones
gone before." This no oue could doubt
when they gazed on that placid lace,
beaming with the joy of her Heavenly
Father's welcome which, even in death
as she had always done in health, was
pointing souls to Jesus. Mrs. Judd was
a nativepf Franklin county, North Caro
lina, the youngest daughter of the late
Jeremiah and Elizabeth Bridgers Solo
mon; was graduated with highest distinc
tion at the Warrenton Female College,
in her 17tb year, and was in early life
baptized into the Warrenton Baptist
church by her brother Dr. J . B. Solomon,
and has ever since led a most active
exemplary Christian life, never failing to
utilize every appropriate occasion to
'say a word for Jesus." Of her it may
be truly said: "She hath done what she
could." All who knew her can attest her
Christian activities and endeavors; all
her influence, both by precept and
example, was on the Lord's side. She
had no doubt of fier acceptance with uod
and often so expressed herself, but her
love for her family was so deep and in
tense that she did not wish to go hence
and leave her loved ones, yet would say:
What God does is right not my will
but Thy will be done." Her's was not a
spasmodic Christian life for she was at
all times in close touch aud warm fellow
ship with her Saviour. To the poor she
was always charitable and never failed
to relieve suffering humanity whenever
within her power to do so. As a mother
and wife she was a model ever faithful,
true, self-denying, self-sacrificing, and in
defatigable in her attentions and devo
tions under all circumstances to her loved
ones. Often on awakening in the morn
ing during her illness and also in health
she would sav: "I had such a sweet
communion with Jesus last night. I felt
His very presence and Oh! it was so
sweet. Frequently amidst acute pain
she would have the family kneel around
her raising her feeble white hands to God
in prayer, and these humble, earnest
praj'ers will never be forgotten by God
or those who heard them such beautiful
words of faith for relief if His will to
grant it if not for strength to bear the
excruciating pain. .Not one word of her
sufferings being unjust was ever uttered
by those dear lips, although through
those long, weary months she was unable
to use aught of her body save arms and
head. Most of the tune she wore that
sweet, contented smile which conies only
from '"Sweet Peace, the Gift of God's
Love." She ofteu said: "There is no
comparison between the pleasures and
happiness of aChristian and sinful life"
that she so much preferred the former to
the latter, even if she knew there was no
future state of rewards and punishments
Could the willing hands that so tenderly
stood around her bedside watching her
day by day, and through the long, weary
hours of the night availed, our dear sister
would have still been a joy and a comfort
to her loved ones. But God in llis in
fiuite wisdom aud goodness saw best to
remove the shining mark from a troubled
and sorrowing world to the mansions
above, where pain and death are felt and
feared no more. May we all so live that
we mav meet her in Heaven. Farewell!
dear sister.
"Here thy loss we deeply feel,
But, 'tis God that hath bereft us;
He can all our sorrows heal."
I shine in the light of God.
His likeness stamps my brow;
Through the shadows of death my feet
have trod,
And 1 reign in glory row.
No aching heart is here,
No keen and thrilling pain,
No wasted cheek where the frequent tear
Hath rolled and left its stain.
I have found the joys of Heaven,
I am one of the angel band;
To my head a crown is given,
And a harp is in my hand.
I have learned the songs they sing,
Whom Jesus hath set free;
And the glorious walls of Heaven still
With my new born melody.
No sin, no grief, no pain,
Safe in my happy home,
My fears all quelled, my doubts all slain,
Mine hour of triumph eonie.
Do I forget? Oh! no;
For memory's golden chain
Still binds my heart to the hearts below,
Till they meet and touch again.
Each link is strong and bright,
And love's celestial flame flows softly
Like a river of light
To the world from which 1 came.
Friends ot my mortal fears,
The trusted and the true;
Ye are walking still through the valley
of tears
And I wait to welcome you.
Do you mourn when another star
Shines out from a glittering sky?
Do you weep when the raging voice of war
And the storm of conflict die?
Then why should your tears run down
And your hearts be sorely riven?
For another gem is in the Saviour's crown,
And another soul in Heaven.
Lovingly inscribed by one who knew
her long, aud loved her well.

is veir much like the blossom
ing of a flower. Its beauty and
perfection depends entirely
upon the care bestowed upon
its parent. Expectant mothers
should have the tenderest care.
They should be spared all worry
and anxiety. They should eat
planty of good nourishing food
and tike pentle exercises. This
will go a long way toward preserv
ing their health and their beauty
as well as that of the little one to
come. But to be absolutely sure
of a short and painless labor they
should use

is to bs applied externally. It gives
strength and vizor to the muscles and
prerenta all of the discomforts of preg
nancy, which women used to think
were absolutely necessary. When
Mother's Friend is used there it no
danger whatever.
