He was de lighted to get such a clear ami clean copv. He knows the paper it came from." While our friend was about it we wish he had also riven the President the article printed on the fourth page of the same paper l eaded "Taft's Vaudeville Show," h:u ing to do with the Eastern District judgeship, in which the Washington correspondent of the Richmond Times-Dispatch speaks of the matter as having de generated into a regular vaudeville jerfortuance. in which there appear ring-masters, horse-traders and po nies, describing Messrs. Wiokershnm and Taft as being the showmen, the friend of the candidates the jockey and the applicants the horses. We think the President would have en joyed the humor of this even if he could not feel delighted at the sorry spectacle that has been made of the whole affair.

If suffering from a lame, weak or aching back they think that it is only a muscular weakness; when urinary trouble seta in thev think it will noon correct itself. And so it is with all the other symptons of kidney disorders. That is just where the danger lies. You must cure these troubles or they may lead to diabetes or Bright's disease. The best remedy to use is Doan s Kidney Pills. It cures all ills which are caused by weak or diseased kidneys. Henderson people testify to permanent cures. Mr. A. T. Karnes. Rowland St.. Hen derson, N. C. says: "Doan's Kidney Pills proved so satisfactory in my case that I do not hesitate to speak in their favor. As a result of my kidneys not performing their functions properly. 1 was annoyed a great deal by dull paius through my back and loins. The kidney secretions were an added source of an noyance on account of their irregularity in passage and plainly showed that my trouble arose from weak kidneys. See ing Doans Kidney Pills advertised, I ob tained a box from the Kerner-McXair Co.'s drug store and after using them a short time I was entirely relieved." For sale by all dealers. Price 50 cents.

Eastern Judgeship Matter Still Unsettled Now Thought that Decision Will be Made this Week and the Appoint ment Will Go Eithei to Judge Connor or District Attorney Skinner President Getting Very Tired of Scramble. Writing about the Eastern District Judgeship Thomas J. Pence in his Washington correspondence to the Xews and Observer of yesterday says this: .Iii(l--e II. Vs. Connor, of the State Supreme Court, or District Attorney Skinner will succeed th late Thomas R. Purnell as District Judge in Eastern Carolina. That was the Hiithorit.ative word that came from the White House today, and it rep resents the attitude of .Mr. laic at this time. For two months the President has had the politicians of the State guess ing as to what he would do in tillint' this Federal judicial vacancy, and today for the tirst time ne maae L-nowMi the fact that he has elimi nated ail the twenty-odd candidates save two and is about reaay to an nounce theaDDointment. Judg Con nor is Mr. Taft's first choice and will get the appointment unless the Re publican leaders who are opposing his nomination succeed in knocking hint out. The fact that Judire Connor is the Proswlpnt's choice araonir the Demo crat ic candidate i no news, the fact h;ivirnr fK-en oublished m this corres pondence two weeks ago. Rut the fact that Harry Skinner is the Presi rlprit.'rt selection amonr the Republi cans comes as something of a sur prise. Mr. Taft has remarked a nan dozen times that he would riot ap point to the Federal bench any man who had leen a Populist, and this situation, it had been thought, elimi nated Skinner. Again, it was thought that Duncan s opposition would keep the District Attorney out of the running, but. according to a man who is closn to Mr. Taft he is not going to be influenced by any of the bosses in .nakimr the aouointment. In fact, the President is quoted as saying that he did not care about this kind of approval. lesterday T. T. liicks and ireOHi MwiitH were looked unon as the most available of the Republican candi dates, but today's authentic infor mation from the White Ilous- puts them way back in the race on an equality with the other starters. It is felt certain now that tin ap pointment will be made this week. The President is tired of the scramble. The- .S'fars.iid this afternoon that the North Carolina judgeship isaregular niirhtmare to the President every time it is mentioned. National Committeeman Duncan went to New York last night, and was not on the scene today. That Mr. Duncan will not take kindlv to the suggestion of Skinner's appointment gots without saying. He would much prefer the appoint ment of Judge Connor. But the fact that the President has picked Skinner as the best of the Re publican material for the judgeship shows that he is paying precious littlr attention to the Republican bosses. Skinner has made his fight for the judgeship independent of every Re publican leader in the State. He couldn't get a Republican of any prominence in the Stat to back his candidacy, and had to rely on his own efforts in furthering his cause. Closing Day at Bobbitt School. Contributed. The teachers of the Bobbitt School, District No.. 8, are to be congratulated on the delightful day they planned as a close to a most successful school year. Pupils and patrons alike spent a most happy holiday. Instead of thecustomary children's concert there was an address in the morning and a picnic in the after noon with "dinner in the middle," as some youth put it. Everybody enjoyed the wholesome sandwich. Rev. J. Marvin Culbreth, of Smithfield, but whom this community claims as its own, was the speaker of the occasion. His address, delivered at 11 o'clock iu the Plank Chapel church, was a fine ef. fort it was most fitting in every re spect. Being a preacher, he took a text, which was familiar to all: "'A thing of beauty is a joy forever." But so did he clothe it with new beauty and fuller meaning that it seemed as a new saying. He held up before the young people of the school a new ideal of preservative and constructive beauty, which will bear fruit in the community life and that ere long. The choruses by the school before and after the address were very pleasing. The morning exercises over all repaired to the school house, where a most bountiful dinner was served. The picnic spirit was abroad in the land. Ball games and various field sports had been arranged for the entertainment of the young people, but the rain forced all in doors where ice cream and fruits were on sale. The authorities were accused of having put in a special plea for the forced entrance to the ice cream parlor. At any rate they were like Riley's farmer philosoper, who says: "Why, if the Lord sends rain, then rain's my choice." A neat sura was realized for the library and other school improvements. After an hour or more of social pleas ure Mr. Culbreth again addressed us, but this time under the auspices of the Sunday-school Missionary Society. His sub ject wan "Missions in Korea." Our hearts burned within us as he talked with us by the way on this subject of Missions, which is so near his own heart. His visior yf world-wide Missions is clear and sane. And go ended another chanter in the history of the Bobbitt School, one of the lest equipped (we think) in Vance county. The teachers, Miss Willia tiavis, -Miss Minnie Ross and Miss Ethel Young, have done faithful and efficient work. They have the reward of the hearty "Well Done" on the part of all concerned. NETTIE M.

Cling man to the Widow of the Gallant Confederate Relat ing the Circumstances of His Death, While at the Head of His Command Near Kinston, N. G, Feb. 1st, 1864. Kittrell, X. C. May 3. 1909. Eimtok Gold Leak: I found the fol lowing letter in an old war-time paper, the Raleigh Confederate, of Feb. 18, 1864. I send you a copy of it for publi cation in order that Col. Shaw's grand children, who live in Henderson and Oxford mav see it. 1 much regret that I did not find it during the lifetime of my friend. Major W. B. Shaw. I am told that the family does not possess the original letter. Probably it never reached them. Col. Shaw was killed before daybreak, on the morning of Feb. 1, 1864. His regiment, the 8th North Carolina, formed part of the force with which Pickett was advancing against New Bern. While seated on his horse at the head of his regiment he was instantly killed by a random shot coming from a force some 200 yards distant that his advance guard had engaged in the dark. Col. Shaw ranked with the ablest and most gallant officers that the State produced. O.W. BLACKNALL. Following is the letter referred to: Camp near Kinston. Feb. 4, 1864. Mrs. Henry M. Shaw, Madam: The most painful duty has devolved on me of communicating, to you the death of your brave and noble husband. As we were riding together at the head of the Brigade on the morning of the 1st inst., about three o'clock, he re ceived the wound, and his death was immediate and seemingly without pain, while the placid smile that rested oh his countenance after death struck the be holder as implying a satisfaction that he had fallen in the discharge of duty. No more exemplary officer, no truer and more patriotic man has fallen in this bloody conflict, and no one more sincerely lamented by all to whom he was well known. As the ranking Colonel of my Brigade for nearly eighteen months, my associa tions with him were constant and inti mate, and I can say with perfect truth that he was more attentive to all thedu ties of his position than any officer I have ever been in contact with, and the drill and discipline bis Regiment made it the object of the highest commenda tion wherever it was peen. I have, too, seen him in positions of the greatest danger, and when under the heaviest fire his courage, his coolness and his self-pos-ession were not sur passed by any soldier in the army. I can bestow no higher praise on him than to say that his merit as a public man and officer was equal to his worth in the social relations of life. For such an irrepanble loss, that you may receive consolation from Hiin alone who can give as well as take away all that is best in life, is my sincere prayer. With sentiments of the highest inspect, I am, Verv truly, etc., t. L. CLING MAN, Brigadier General. The publication of this letter in the Raleigh Confederate and the doubt expressed by Mr. Rlacknall as to whether ir evr reached the family of Col. Shaw, is explained in the follow ing which accompanied itn trans mission to the Raleigh paper: , Camp near Petersburg. Va., February 10, 1864. Mit. EditoI:: The above letter having been handed me by General Clingman to be forwarded to the wife of the lamented Col. Shaw, and owing to the fact that she resides in the enemy's lines, and the uncertainty of its reaching its destina tion. I request that you will give it a place in your columns. Respectfully, etc.. C. W. G It ANDY. In Meraoriam. The following appreciation of the life and character of Mrs. Arena Ed wards is apart of t he remarks of Rev. J. AY. Frank. her pastor, made fit the funeral at Union Chapel last Friday: Arena Nash Edwards was born August 27, 1841, and died at her home near Henderson April 30, 1!H)9, aged 67 years, 8 mouths and i$ days. She was the daughter of Robert Vatkins? of War ren county. She was married to McDon ald Edwards March 23, 1857. They lived in this covenant relation until his death several years ago. Mrs. Edwards was the mother of ten children, four of whom preceded her to the grave. The following children survive her: Ken neth V. Edwards, Register of Deeds of Vance county; Prof. Luther B. Edwards, of Florida; Ernest E. Edwards, of Vance county; Mrs. Margaret E. Floyd, of Vance county; Miss Ilosa Q. Edwards, of Bona Vista Graded School, Vance county, and Miss Lois M. Edwards, of the Raleigh Graded Schools. Besides these she leaves a sister, several grand children and a large circle of devoted friends. She became a Christian when about fourteen years old and joined the Chris tian church. After her marriage, two years later, she transferred her member ship to Union Chapel Methodist Protes tant church, where it remained till her death. For a half century she had quiet and pleasant fellowship with a noble band of disciples, some of whom have gone before and others are left to miss her stately stoppings iu the sanctuary. As a Christian, she possessed a sincerity questioned by none. She was quiet and unostentatious, yet firm in her devotion to truth and righteousness. With such a record of unswerving fidelity to Christ she had naught to fear as she went into IIi9 immediate presence. As a mother, we have seen what man ner of love she bestowed upon her chil dren. And in reciprocation of this every child responded with a full measure of love and filial piety. As a sufferer, she drank the cup to the dregs. In her suffering patience wrought a perfect work; and her chastening helped to sweeten her soul. Forty-five years ago she was given up to die'with a fatal malady. Dr. Gill's skill and at tention through these forty-five years doubtless had much to do in repelling the grim monster, Death. His devotion is on record on high, and will be in evi dence when it shall be said by the Lord Himself, 'I was sick, and ye vkited me." "What are our crosses? Footsteps to Heaven! What are our longs'? Eternal gain!" "Who can find a virtuous woman? for her price is far above rabies Herchildreu rise np and call her blessed.''
