The Law's Delay and Too Frequent Miscarriage of Justice Responsi ble in Great Measure for Lynch- ings Lawyers and Judges Are Criticised for Failure to do Their Duty Toward Society. A writer in the AVadesboro Messen ger and Intelligencer takes the late lynching in Anson county as a text, and says the failure of the courts to convict the guilty is the cause of lynch law: After "striking back" at those who criticised and con demned the lynchers in question, de claring that unjust or uncalled for criticisms never have and never will reform an evil or correct ar. abuse, this writer says: The lion enforcement of law, or too tardiness in its enforcement, lead to acts sometimes seemingly in contempt of law, which in reality is not true; it is the peo pel's contempt for those whose duty it is to see that the law is enforced. The tardiness of our courts in acting, their willingness to have the time of our people fritted away in irrelevant nonsense, con suming a week's time in trying a case that should be disposed of in a few hours. In this matter our judges are at fault, and unless there be a change there is al ready ji revulsion there will be a revo lutiou. In another particular we have a grievance, and our lawyers make too good a t.se of it for the good of our law abiding citizens. It is this: The law breaker or criminal has all the advan tage over the State in his peremptory challenges. This la w should be amended to the extent, at least, of placing the good citizen on an quality with the criminal before the law. The criminal having already the advantage of every reasonable doubt, the burdon of proof being on the State, no lawyer who practices before our courts would likely be willing to have the law amended. If this law cannot be amended 1 think it would be well to have criminal cases car ried to some other county where the lawyers are not-so conversant with the sentiment of individual jurors. This not because we would be afraid to trust our good citizens, but to protect such. Our people have submitted to one innovation after another until our courts have so degenerated that our best people do not have that respect for law that all good men should have. Then why brand our people as brutes or uncivilized because they want their grievances righted? If the courts'will not come to their rescue and protect them as the law intends that they should be protected against the vicious, why be so bitter against the wronged ones who are endeavoring to do what the courts failed to do right their wrongs? Let our judges see that justice Is me ted out to the criminals; that the ones who have violated no law but have the taxes to pay, also have consideration; that every man in the court house on business be accorded the right and privi leges of a gentleman, not allowing any petty lawyer to abuse his betters, and try to restore some of the lost prestige of our courts. When this has been ac complished you will hear no more of men taking the law into their own hands. Our best people do notfrequent thecourt house as in the past. There is a reason for it; let the courts look around and see for themselves why this is so. Of course people who think do not respect our courts as they would like, and no sane individual w ould have far to go to find the cause. When a lawyer condescends to use abuse rather than argument he has missed his calling, lost the respect of our best citizens, and the sooner he gets between the plow handles no, I take that back, for I am a farmer and would not like such recruits in our ranks in some other calling the better it will be for our courts and the people he misrep resents.

Only thirty years ago was the first telephone operated in Philadelphia. Its growth has been wonderful. Peo ple had the telegraph, we believe, only a little more than thirty years then, and when the first words were heard over the telephone doubtless no one thought that by this time people would be able to talk to each other in nudible voice, known and recognized, from lakes to gulf and from sea to sea. We need wonder no longer at the great strides science and human effort are making; and we need not try to foretell the limit of these things. Recently a man sail ed about Washington City in a flying machine with as much ease and directed it with as much certainty as a man can drive a gentle buggy horse over the best roads in Halifax county.

Parker's Two Give the Children a Chance. Mothers should not allow their love to interfere with the best interests of theirchildren. The career of many a man has been mined by his mother whose love would not let him leave her when the best opening for future success came to him. Many a girl has refused the man who would have made her happy and comfortable be cause marriage to him would have taken her far from home, and her mother was not willing to let her go away. Too often girls have married men near home because their mothers wanted them to do so, and have ruined their lives, and men have been kept in a condition of lifelong pover ty because their mothers objected to the way which would have led to prosperity and usefulness. Mother love is one of the very best and most precious gifts of life, but mothers should be careful that their love does not wreck the lives of those whom they would not harm for the world. As a rule, fathers, .although they may be as reluctant as the mothers to part with theirchildren, take a larger and more unselfish view of their pros pects for life and will not stand in the way of their best interests, but moth ers too often fail to look beyond the limited circle of the satisfaction of themselves.

In each of these homes there is neither want nor suffeit; and the inmates of each especially the wo menare dedicated, but dot sacrificed to the care of it; they ara its votaries, not its victims, and their love of it makes it a precious, beautiful thing to all who may chance to go about it. When the children go away they miss it, and when the father goes i). way he dreams about it and wants to get back to it. But these happy homes in Sanford do not exist of themselves; thev exist from the moth er's love, the father's wisdom, the mutual good will of the family. One associates the idea of these homes with permanence, but a railroad car may be home to the family that travels initupon these terms; and the mere body of it may be almost any sort. Home is not dependent upon time or place; it is in the heart and it remains there through every change. In these happy homes in Sanford are husbands who recognize the obliga tions of fatherhood, and in them are wives and mothers who hold all to gether by their own inner loveliness and make their homes seem the first good of life. Out of these homes are coming children, some of whom will be ornaments to the community. You can see the poison Pine-ules clears out of the kidneys and bladder.

It is a magnificent property, costing, grounds and all, $225,000. Too much cannot be said of the service and fare here. While the capacity of the hotel was taxed to the utmost, the service in the dining room and elsewhere was almost perfect. It is a fact that during our four days stay at the Mecklenburg I did not hear a single complaint about the manage ment or the service. Col.

The cuisine was richly deserving of the high praise it received, being pre pared by chefs as skillful as a Lucul iees, anil the fine lithia and calcium waters tire delightfully refreshing and invigorating.

Paper from Cotton Stalks Company Formed to Develop New Industry. Baltimore Manufacturers' Record. Mr. W. A. Gibbs, Pennsylvania Building, Philadelphia, Pa., writesj the Manufacturers liecora that the organization of the Cotton Stalks Product Co. was completed last week, the company having been chartered under the laws of Maine with a capi tal stock of $3,000,000 7 per cent, preferred and 12,000,000 of com mon stock. Mr. Harvie Jordan, president of the Southern Cotton As sociation, has been elected president. Among the directors are M. W. P. G. Harding, president of the First National Bank of Birmingham! Mr. W. H. Hassinger, until recently vice president of the Republic Iron & Steel Co., and a number of other leading Southern business men. This com pany has been organized for the pur pose of manufacturingpulp and paper from the cotton stalks under patents of M. W. Marsden, Philadelphia. Sam- Eles of pulp in the natural color and leached and samples of paper made by these patents indicate that it will be possible to make a very high grade of paper out of the fiber of cotton stalks. It is stated that the by-products of alcohol and fertilizer ingred ient made in the process of manufac turing pulp will reduce the cost of pulp and paper to such a figure as to make it possible for cotton-stalk paper to control the market as against wood pulp. If this be true it will not only be of immense ad vantage to all users of paper and of immense advantage to the South in adding to this section a new industry consuming a hitherto waste product, but it will at the same time be a great blessing to the country in lessening the destruction of forests for paper making. If this enterprise be carried out in the lines indicated it ought to very greatly add to the development of the South by the utilization on a lai ge scale of a product hitherto ab solutely without value, and at the same time complete the circle of ntil- linir rv nai rf tlio enttnn nlant ' and its pfoauct. Treat Them as Vagrants Fathers Who Work Their Children in the Mills and Live in Idleness Off of Their Wages, Should be Treated as Vagrants Along With the Idld and Dissolute Class of Negroes. Wilmington Messenger. We are glad to kuow that our mayor and the chief of police have begun a diligent weeding out of the vagrants in the city. There should btmo idle men nr women having no visible means of support allowed to remain in the city. Every one of this crowd of vagrants should be made to work either for the county or voluntarily. When vagrancy has been proven against a defendant in the courts we do not believe iu the practice some times followed of suspending judg ment on condition the vagrant will leave the city. It is true that such course will relieve the city of that per son's baneful presence, but only to inflict it on some other community. It does not force the vagrant to do better in the future or punish him for his conduct in the past. It does not check the violation of the law and is an injustice to other commun ities, often subjecting the rural dis tricts to the annoyance of the pres ence of such characters where there is not the same police protection against their pilfering and greater crimes. Persons convicted of va grancy should be put to work. That is the law and it should be enforced. There is another class of idlers who should be attended to by the officers of the law. These are to be found in the factory towns and the villages built up about cotton factories. They are the men who move there with their families, put their- children to work in the mills and spend their lives in idleness, liviug off the work of their children, whose minds are being stunted and bodies dwarfed by the long hours of labor in the mills. These men form a more despicable class of vagrants than the worthless negroes who hang around the streets of our cities and towns. Any able bodied man who will put his children in a mill and spend his life in idleness, living off their hard earned wages, merits the contempt of all decent people and deserves the full penalty of the law against vagrancy. towns there would not be so much complaint against child labor in our mills. 1 he children who are now supporting their worthless parents would be going to school fit least part of thej'earand perform ing much healthier labor at other times. The mill owners are not as much responsible for the child labor condi tions in their mills as are those vag abond fathers. Many of them will tell you they do not want the chil dren iu the mills. They would prefer the grown members of the families. They build school houses where the children of the families who move to villages to work in the mils can get a common school education. Some of them provide pleasure grounds for the children; but the schools are not patronized; the play grounds are empty, because the heads of the fam ilies assembled there to supply the mills .with labor will not work, but place their children in the mills in stead. Let part of the energy being devo ted to preventing child labor in the mills be expended in forcing the va grant parents to take the childrens' places and much good will be accom plished. If it cannot be done in any other way then as a last resort com pulsory education will surely be re sorted to. We know that many mill owners would like to see such law in force. We do not exonerate the mill own ers from all responsibility for the conditions of child labor in the mills, but we do'say that all the blame does not rest on them not as much as on the idle, worthless fathers. Enforce the law of vagrancy as to them and there will be a wonderful change for the better in the condition of the children iu the mill towns. These are the vagrants who phould be taught that if they will not work voluntarily they will be made to do so by the law. Only 82 Years Old.

Since the first of January, to say notning oi a "new arrival'"' in every household on the plantation, Mr. Stogner's cows have each given birth to a calf, his mare to a fine colt, his sows to large litters of pigs, his Shepherd dog to puppies, his sheeD to lambs, his goats to kids, and the end isnotyet insight. About the only things on the place that nave not contriDUiea anyiumg w the wholesale "increase" are a Tom cat and a time piece, but they may be heard from later. . . It has caused more laaghs and dried more tears, wiped away more diseases and driven away more fears than any other medicine in the world. Hollister' Rocky Mountain Tea. 35 cents, Tea orTablcts. Parker's Two Drug Store. A Generous Proposition. Thoiuasville Charity and Children. No class of men in North Carolina have shown a more generous spirit toward the orphanages of our State than the dentists. On three separate occasions we have had visits from busy and successful dentists who gave a week's work to the children of the Orphanage, making no charge whatever for their time or material. The other orphanages of the State have been favored in the same way. At the Dental Association in High Point, a resolution was unanimous ly passed providing for a fund to de fray the expenses of volunteers who are willing to. do this btsnage work; thus distributing the uurden instead of letting it fall on one man. The resolution was supported by several splendid speeches breathing a beautiful spirit toward the orphan homes in North Carolina which are maintained by the voluntary offer ings of the people. there is no danger but that there will be plenty of volunteers who will be glad to give their time to this noble work; and these excellent gen tlemen who freely give this unselfish service to those who are unable to procure it otherwise, will not lose their reward. In behalf of our orphan homes we extend to our good friends, the dentists, our heartfelt apprecia tion of their thoughtful kindness in making so generous a contribution to our work. Tho doors of our Or phanage stand open to any member of the profession, not professionally out personally, and all friends of the orphanage work will feel kindly to ward them every one. The Dental Association, without a thought except to rendef help to the helpless, has won legions of friends for itself. It is always more blessed to give than to receive. lakes the Liver Lively.

This year for the first time a complete WFMT oragrlcuTfural Wuea-riail t8 the A. & M. College. Notwithstanding the fact that the building was not ready for occupancy last year the number of students at the institution was greater than ever before. With the building ful ly equipped this year and opened from the start for active work with an in creased faculty inefficiency and strength, with a large farm in fine condition of cultivation and with the opportunity for observation work afforded by the expe riments being conducted by the Lxperi nient Station in close proximity, it can without hesitation be predicted that the number of agricultural students to be en rolled this year will be larger than ever before. The course is a popular one with the boys who enter college. Agriculture is fascinating; the science upon which it rests are always facinating to the stu dents, and the wholesome spirit of com- radeship.sympathy and love which exists between the agricultural students and the agricultural faculty endears this course to the hearts of the siudents. Hundreds of neonlefrom n erv nortion of the State have examined the equip ment for agricultural instruction in the College and have been astonished at its completeness and the opportunities for giving instruction in this subject. 1 he new athletic Geld at the College will be graded by the end of the coming week. In the grounds there will be a baseball diamond, a football field, a quar ter mile track, and tennis courts. A box- bush hedge will be planted around the outside of the fence which will surround the field. Kaleigh then will have a mod ern atheletic resort, complete in every re spect, with grand stand, bleachers, and a club house with hot and cold baths. It will bring a National or American league ball team here every sprint for practice, and will encourage the forma tion of a .State league. Prof. Thos. Nelson, head of the Textile School, is making a collection of home made clothes. Some right interesting pieces are found in the collection. The most recent additions to this collection are some pieces brought from a borne a few miles from Islington. There are nine samples, all made by one family, and all woven within fifteen years ago. Nearly all are cither jeans or linsey and the wool was grown, spun and woven at home. Not the least interesting fea ture of these goods is the dye stuffs, which are madder for red, maple bark and copperas for purple, peach leaves and alum for yellow, walnut root bark and walnut hulls for brown. One of the recent pieces of good work in the Textile School is a piece of fancy coverlet goods made in imitation of home made cover let, woven near Kaleigh. Prof. Nelson says that he finds the study of home manufactured clothes in North Carolina a very interesting as well as instructive investigation. During the Teachers Assembly and Summer School, the Textile department was open for inspection. Many teachers took advantage of this opportunity to visit the department and examine the work of the students. Alout one hun dred samples of fabrics were on exhibi tion, these being produced entirely by the students, both as to coloriug and weave, as well as weaving of, the same in looms. This shows at once i be practical nature of the teaching. The teachers were surprised and pleased that eoch work was being taught at the A. Sc. M. College, and this to many of them was entirely new.
