The Freak Period.
Thomasville Charity and Children.
We have readied it in North Caro
lina. Let no man become alarmed
or discouraged. There is a feeling
among a coterie of small minds -that
the thing to do now is to belittle our
good State and discredit the progress
cnat nas been made, liut like the
frogs in the bottom of t he pond their
noise is greater than their number.
We are roundly abused because we
glorify our State. This is the way
with the freaks. They are as con
scientious as men of their mould can
be. They imagine they are suffering
persecution and that thj.v are the
victims of their own heroic convic
tions; but nobody is hinderiug them
and they are enjoying all the liberty
they could ask of rushing into print.
To be sure they are being roasted
alive, but they have all the oppor
tunity they could desire of defending
themselves. They, no doubt, fall
back on the assurance that they are
the only men brave enough to tell
the truth, when in fact they are not
telling the truth at all; but they think
they are, and so it is all the same to
them. The freak is a curious animal.
He is so very self-confident. He
smiles at Satan's rage and faces a
frowning world.. He bares his bosom
to the storm and invites the darts of
the malicious and ignorant. He is a
daisy all around. However, the staid
and sober sentiment of North Caro
lina remains unchanged and urn
touched, by the freaks. Our people
majT not be the best, but they are as
good as the world holds and they
know it. Thej' are going serenely on
their way, unmindful of the tempest
in the teapot, and when they need
advice they will turn to some other
source than the freaks to get it. Mr.
John Bassett Spencer, or whatever
his name is, who holds down a little
professorship at Trinity College, 1m
agines that he is the faculty of the
Lniversitv of Chicago, the storm-
centre of freakdom, and that his
voice will be heard through all the
lan l. So it will, but not in the way
he expected when he wrote his opinion
about race equality. The parent who
will allow a son to remain for
moment under the influence of such a
man who holds this gentleman's sen
timents deserves exactly what he will
get. Let. the freaks have their day. It
does them lots of good and will hard
ly harm anybody else whose mind is

for the United States. He la
big enough to satisfj some of
the material craving of even the big
game hunter. He eludes the still hunt

gives the cross country rider, coursing

often is equal to fox hunting. The
wing shot finds him equal to the occa
sion. He is the finest game bird In the
world. Not even the royal auerhahn,
sole living representative of the an
cient big game world of Europe when
the huge aurochs crashed through the
forests, can compare with him.
Hunting the wild bird with hound
anil horse is sport for the very select
few. for not only is it necessary to find
the birds first, but they must be found
in open country where they cannot es
cape too readily by flying into cover.
Therefore, coursing is limited to open
country where the turkey, not having
been hunted too fervently, is Incau
tious enough to feed in farm lands and

The South and the Negro.
It is painfully apparent that the
press throughout the country is con
tinually awaiting in breathless ex
pectancy an opportunity to laui'ch
forth in sensationally headed edito
rials upon the race problem. It is
even more noticeable that the petty
politician and the sensational stump
speaker grasp with avidity the slight
est pretext to belch forth their worth
less opinions upon a question which
invites the careful consideration and
deepest thoughts of our brainiest
etatesmen. To the Southerner who
is thoroughly cognizant of all the
characteristics of the negro race, and
who understands his nature, disposi
tion and idiosyncrasies, the sugges
tions and remedies by which this mo
mentous problem is to be solved, as
offered by the Northern politicians
and biased editors who have never
been thrown in contact with a dozen
negroes at the same time, is too ridic
ulously absurd to be seriously con
sidered. There are men of the South
who in moments of excitement put
forth the impossible suggestion of
deporting the negro to the Philip
pine Islands or to some other dis
tant shore, when there is about as
much likelihood of this being done
as there is of sending him to Mars
or some other terrestrial planet.
There is, in cur humble opinion,
but one solution of this condition,
and that is to accept the situation as
it is, and use our brains to intelli
gently adjust a condition placed upon
us by the Creator. The hand of des
tiny has at all times been clearly
shown in connection with the exist
ence of the African in America. He
was brought here unwillingly, by
force, in chains and irons, and as
such we gladly accepted him. What
he has been since that period we made
him, and what he may accomplisn in
the future we are directly responsible
for. The negro is as much a part of
the South as are its cotton helds, and
he is more closely identified with its
history than any product which maj
be found within its boundaries.
The true Southerner knows the
negro, appreciates his worth, and is
at all times ready to extend to wor
thy members of that race the right
hand of assistance and is the first to
encourage his efforts and to praise
him for the successful termination of
6ome undertaking. The negroes
those worthy of the respect of man
kind, know this, and we lay down
the gauntlet and defy the most pre
judiced of our Northern critics to
point to a. single instance where a
worthy negro has ever Peen reiusea
assistance in any part of the bouth
On the other hand, the Southern
man, worthy of that title, under
standing the emotional temperament
of the negro and his inclination to
follow an intelligent leader, looks
with a feeling of repulsion, disgust
and abhorrence upon the contempti
ble efforts of unscrupulous politicians
to play upon the susceptible feeling
and trusting confidence of the negro

Shall Nothing Abide?
Some days ago we heard a patri
otic citizen complaining that the au
thorities (we use this word for the
lack of more definite information
had sent to Pennsylvania after oak
trees to put in the place of the old
trees which had been removed from
the capitol grounds. We thought he
had good cause for complaint, and
think so now. The thing that makes
the whole thing laughable is, that
some specialist in dendrology has
discovered that the physical condi-
j tion of the soil in the capitol grounds
, has so changed that it will not pro-
duce now a natural North Carolina
We would like to see an elaborat ion
of this idea, for we are at a loss to
guess whether it is to be accounted
for from scientific causes or whether
it is to be referred to social or politi
cal influences. At any rate the peo
pie will be interested to know just
what has taken place to change the
nature of this particular soil at the
capital of the State. Just think to
what we are coming! We thought we
were first at Bethel, but they say we
were not. We thought our record at
Gettysburg was safe, and that has
lightened the burdens and softened
the disappointments of many an old
soldier; out now the race is to be run
over again to see who really did reach
the goal first. When the ragged and
foot-sore North Carolinian turned hi
back upon his great leader and start
ed to his home of povertv and deso
lation, the thing that gave him joy
and hope was, that he was the last to
give up the struggle; but lo and be
hold 1 altera third of a centurv has
passed, others have risen up to claim
this distinguished honor. And now
to cap the climax, our soil refuses to
grow our own native oaks, and we
are forced to import a foreign species.
Next thing we know our title, which
we have heretofore regarded as safe,
to the "Tar Pitch and Turpentine,"
will be ruthlessly claimed by another,
and the world-wide fame of "North
Carolina corn" may yet pass away
and not leave so much as the aroma
of its former excellence.
Why should Mr. B. R. Lacy be ex
pected to preserve the traditions of
Mosely, Macon, "Wiley and Vance by
wearing genuine North Carolina jeans
while the rest of us are asked to rest
under the shade of Yankee oaks?

TTASPER PEYTON was a stranger
In a strange land. The fact was
most unpleasantly brought home
ti h:ai at every opportunity by
the good people of Oreville.
He was a sweet temiered fellow, and
it disturbed him mightily when his ef
forts at sociability were Ignored. "How
can 1 Help it that there was trouble at
the works and that my predecessor
was fired?" he exclaimed ruefully to
Maria. "I didn't know it when I ac

Maria sniffed. She had her opinion
of people who failed in appreciation of
her young master. Had she not come
all these weary hundred iuile6 for the
sake of his sunny smile?.
But Maria did not know that most of
Jasper's irritation was caused by the
house nest door. No, not the house. It
was a pretty little frame dwelling, em
bowered in vines and. banked iu scarlet
sage. It was the girl. She had a scorn
ful mouth, an aggravatingly tilted nose
and a pair of dark eyes.
He found out that her mouth was
scornful when he met her outside the

She passed on without a word.
Jasper stared after ber in astonish
ment and then cursed the custom that
some small towns have of aping city
conventionalities. Later he found out
his mistake. The girl's name was Carl
ton, aud her father was the man whose
dismissal had made room for Jasper.
There was a L'uhIi on the young man's
cheek as he realized that the girl held
him accountable for the change of fam
By dint of carefully veiled inquiry
he found out much more. Mr. Carl
ton, it seemed, had obtained an in
ferior position in a town fifty miles
farther south. But as he hoped for a
better opening In the near future he
had delayed moving the family goods
and chattels. There was much not

rosebu.-dsen coaxed to splendid size and
bloom through untoward frosts and
protracted drought, turtledoves that
whirred and cooed and sunned them
selves on the fiat rcof of the ban to,
and the tine nock of turkeys. Marion
Carlton refused to part with one of
these. Had she not triumphantly
reared The entire hatching when the
spring winds, p'p. tats and other ene
mies of ttu keykind had dashed the
hopes of neighboring raisers? If any
one was to least on fat turkeys, lying
peacefully on snowy pillows of mashed
potatoes with garlands of parsley
round their necks, it should be- the
Carlton family. And as the Carlton
family had but two members, Marion's
will was generally law.
The frost bad turned the scarlet sage
to black, aud the vines no longer
screened the house next door. But
every falling leaf seemed only to add
to the rampart that the girl's pride had
raised. She was evidently a favorite
In the town, for in the evening the
young folks trooped to her door, aud
through the partition walla came
bursts of laughter and snatches of mu
sic. That they all followed Marion's
example in leaving him strictly alone
was partly Jasper's fault. After the
first few rebuff's his free and easy
manner changed to one of aloofness.
Maria sighed as she noted the
change. "And it's the hard hearts
you're all after bavin'." she said as she
6at in Ler kitchen and listened to the
laughter from the house nest door.
Just thin Jasper dashed into the
room, crying joyfully: "Hurrah. Maria!
We're in luck: Here's Aunt Jane writ

have a line Thanksgiving turkey, and
so she is sending us a live one. I can

some of your prime dressing."

Jasper went to the freight office the
oexl evening and escorted the turkej
home In person. When it was tethered
to a stak m the back yard, Maria
could not hut declare that IS was the
fiuefet turkey she bad ever seen, Infi
nitely finer than any belonging to the.
house next door.
Iiut. alas, there was no chance for
comparison. Others besides Marion bad
evidently watched the growth of her
turkeysand took an interest, a proprie
tary Interest, in them. The next morn
ing her turkey house was empty.
Marlon cried. Here It was only two
days to Thanksgiving dinner and her
father's long expected visit, and there
was a dearth of turkeys In Oreville.
She was at an upper window gazing
disconsolately toward the empty poul
try house when her glance happened
to stray to the yard of her neighbor.
She saw the turkey" tethered to the
post. Instantly she thought she recog
nized It as her favorite gobbler. It was

la much of a sameness in turkeys.
Ah. so he wna the thief U Rut where
wer-the others? Doubtless he had
made way with them. Here her tears
flowed again. It was a melancholy sat
isfaction to think how perfectly she
had diagnosed the strauger's character
at that chance meeting so niauy weeks
before, but it was not a material com
fort. Meanwhile there was equal distress
in the house of Peyton. Maria's sister
was ill. and she must come at once.
She had departed with many tears and
Jasper after seeing her off had re
turned home in a melancholy frame of
mind. No Thanksgiving dinner for him
now. lie must eat at the hotel. And
Just then a most brilliant Idea came
to him. He had heard of Miss Carl

key? But a very astonished face met him
next door. Was his conscience nlready
troubling him? Marion's cheeks were
scarlet with anger as the unconscious
young man presented the turkey In his
most polite manner.
He had scarcely finished when the
avalanche fell. His turkey! For how
long had it been his turkey? Since last
night. It was adding insult to Injury

Jasper's bewilderment had changed
"You accuse me me?" be exclaimed
incredulously. "But it is only on a par
with your previous actions. Permit me,
madam, to inform you that the turkey
arrived by express last night. You can
get the express agent to verify my
words. 1 can only hope that you will
enjoy my turkey as much as if it had
been one cf your own." Aud before the
girl could speak he had bowed ironical

It was the next evening that there
came a timid tap at Jasper's door. It
was the girl from the next house. Her
long lashes hid the dark eyes and the
scornful month trembled. Only the
nose still tilted aggravatingly. "I have
come," she said in a very small voice.

The Mighty Huntsman.
It chanced one day that Col. Nim
rod, the huntsman, was out with hid
double-barreled nhot gun and noth
ing but bird shot for ammunition.
While he was ecannitifr the bushes
for his feathered quarry his ears were
assailed by fierce, angry screams.
Looking up, lie beheld a tremendous
eagle swooping toward him.
Instantly bethinking himself of his
lack of suitable ammunition for
coping with the eagle, he threw him
self into a posture of defense and
awaited the onslaught. The eagle
was an immense bird, measuring ten
or twelve feet from tiptotip and with
strength in proportion.
It neared ( ol. Ximrol, but he did
