"My mother is a great suf
ferer from rheumatism, and Dr.
Miles' Anti-Pain Pills is the only
remedy that relieves her."
Royccfield, N. J.
The pains of rheumatism are
almost invariably relieved with
Dr. MilrV Anti-Pain Pills. They
aKo overcome that nervous irri
tation which prevents sleep be-c;u:-c
they soothe the nerves. To
( IiromV suffers they are invalu
:iiIj. W hen taken as directed,
t!n relieve the distress and
mivc the weakening influence of
pain, which so frequently pros
trates. Many sufferers use them
whenever occasion requires with
the greatest satisfaction, why
not you? They do not derange
the stomach nor create a habit.
Why not try them? Get a pack

according to directions, and if
it does not benefit he will return

Miscarriage of Justice.
Comments of the State Press
on the Verdict .in Biggers
Murder Case of Meckelen
burg County A Travesty
on Justice and a Judicial
Abortion Under the Forms
of Law Time to Call a
Halt and Take Our Bearings
Upon the Tendency Toward
Failure to Punish Crime
Dangerous Precedent.
Albemarle Entt-rprittv.
The verdict of uequtittal in this
ease is a dangerous one. It is making
justice a faree, and giving erime a
vindication in the foolish plea of
every man who trots mad enough to
lose his mind to everything else ex
eept t lie ohjeet of his worry. If such
is elassed as insanity that excuses
the erime of murder, then the man
who ets drunk and commits murder
is almost on the same ground, if not
entirely. P.iggers committed murder.
If he was insane when he did it, he
is subject to thesamekind of insanity
everytime he gets mad. if the Meck
lenburg courts want to see justieeen
throned, then Diggers should do
service in the penitentiary, say the
penalty of first-degree murder, orelse
he should be made to keep company
with such men as Harry Thaw, and
he compelled to make some atone
ment for Ji crime for which there was
no sane excuse. Our prisons or peni
tentiaries should have special depart
ments for the care of such patients if
this form of acquittal from capital
offenses is to become popular. Charlotte-should
hold its head in shame.
Ilowevar unpopular was the dead j
man and however respected the
slayer may have been ami is now, the
verdict of acquittal iVf's justice
in North Carolina u back set, while
men will be encouraged into getting
mad, pulling their hair, gritting their
teeth, and shooting down their fel
lows. Our courts cannot afford such
wild abortions of justice.
Ktat8ville Landmurk.
The acquittal of Biggers in Char
lotte on the irround of insanity has
forced on public attention an absurd
situation. While a very
large number of people do not believe
that Diggers was insane at any time
except in so far as one is insane who
broods over a grievance orimaginary
grievance until he works himself up
to the point of committing murder,
even if it be conceded that the man
was insane prior to and at the time
of the murder, it must be admitted
that to allow him to go free is a
grievous wrong to society, for no as
surance can be given that he will not
again become a victim of "confusion
al insanity" and repeat his perform
ance if the occasion arise.
The result of the Biggers trial can
but give impetus to the already
shocking prevalence of homicide.
One who gives way to feeling and
makes no effort to control himself
may be insane in a sense, but if he is
not held responsible for his conduct
under such circumstances it is easy
to see what the result will be.
Mt. Olive Tribune.
The acquittal of Biggers on the
plea of insanity has caused a great
deal of comment as to what will be
the solution of this vexed problem
of convicting murderers when they
plead temporary insanity, homicidal
mania, "confusional insanity," etc.
And it is really a problem thatshould
greatly interest every one. The best
and most sensible solution so far
offered comes from Solicitor Heriot
Clarkson, of the Charlotte district,
who prosecuted Biggers. His plan is
that all slayers of their Wlowmen
shall be subjected to the same punish
ment meted out to second degree
murderers, which is two to thirty
years' imprisonment, "but in an
asylum for the criminal insane for a
period in the discretion of the court"
when such defendants plead insanity,
at the time of the killing, and are
found not guilty by the jury on this
Greenville Uefleetor.
In the matter of the insanity plea
the North Carolina courts seem to be
falling in line after New York. It
seems to us that if wp are going to
turn our murderers loose on this
ground we had just as well do away
with the courts entirely, as one who
commits a crime of any kind is insane
to that extent. No sane man will
walk deliberately up and shoot his
fellow being down. Such an act is
directly against the nature of a
normal man, but that is no reason
they should be turned loose on the
public to possibly do the same thing
under similar circumstances.
Those who are in position to know
say the evidence against Biggers
would not justify his conviction. As
for that we know nothing, but we
know the insanity plea is no plea
and think our lawyers are carrying
things too far.
High Point Enterprise.
The verdict in the Biggers trial was
unexpected in a community like Meck
lenburg, whose people for genera
tions nave been taught obedience to
authority and whose newspapers
have preached the pure doctrine of
law and order almost to the point of

a Brutus who pronounced sentence
on his own son in order that the
majesty of the law might be upheld.
There was not even a woman in this
case to divert the attention of the
jurors from the main issue. There
must have been much sympathy for
the one-armed man who committed
the deed, and a strong feeling that he
had been wronged, because we are
told that an acquittal was exitec-ted.
The masterly conduct of the case by
Judge Osborne and his exceptional
plea for the man's life no doubt had
much to do with the verdict. But
all these brilliant features of the trial
do not lessen the significance of the
The Moral of Two Murders
Baltimore Snn.
Close upon the heels of the atro
cious murder by a Chinaman in New
York of a young woman, a mission
ary worker, comes the discovery of
murder in Talbot county, Maryland,
apparently no less brutal and re
volting in character than the crime
committed by the Oriental degener
ate in the metropolis. The victim in
the latter case was also a woman, of
good social position, talented and
attractive. The man suspected of
killing her is a man whose environ
ment was wholly different from that
of the Chinaman whose crime has
shocked and startled the nation.
But in respect to depravity and fe
rocity the Chinese murderer of Elsie
Siel and the American who killed
Mrs. Wood ill seem to be on the same
low level.
In these two crimes, it must appear
to all thoughtful men and women,
there is food for serious reflection.
Upon parents especially they should
make a profound impression, em
phazing the vital importanceof home
influence of training children from
t he earliest hi the wa v they should go.
Girls should be taught how absolute
ly essential it is for their own happi
ness and protection that they exercise
the utmost circumspection in their
choice of companions. Of the perils
to which they are exposed when they
depart in the slightest degree from
high standards in the selections of
their friends of both sexes they should
be franklv advised. It is no exag
geration to say that American girls
are allowed agreater degree of liberty
now than their grand-mothers were
permitted to exercise in their genera
tions, in making acquaintances and
receiving attention from men. There
was never a time when girls needed
more the counsels of parents, their
wise and tender and vigilant care and
guidance, than now. There was
never a time when for our own good
there was a greater necsssitv than
now for girls to surround themselves
with the safeguards of discriminating
exciusiveness, to maKe no friend

complaint was directed against the
Seaboard Air Line, the Itichmond,
I redencksburg & Potomac, the
Southern railway, the Central of
Georgia and the Pullman company.
It was alleged that the day coaches
furnished for negro passengers in the
Southeastern states were not equal
to those provided for white people;
tha,t negroes were denied sleeping car
accommodations; and that they were
refused food in the dining car solely
on account of their color.
At the hearing of the case the com
plaint as to the day coaches was
abandoned in view of the weight of
testimony to the contrary; and with
respect to the dining car facilities,
the allegations were modified by con
cession. Most of the complainants
and their witnesses testified that they
actually did ride on sleeping cars.
It is held by the commission, in its
decision, that undue discrimination
or prejudice was not shown apd the
complaint, therefore, was dismissed.

The Difference in Sewing Machines
It is a mistaken idea that sewing machines
are pretty much alike, when as a matter
of fact there is a vast difference
There is but one machine that sews better
than any other and that one is the Singer.
This is because the Sinr ,Jea is
tinctive every year shows improvement
in that idea.
This is because the Singer factories are not
only equipped with tools and machinery
better calculated to make good sewing ma
chines than any other, but this equipment
is unique and not to be found elsewhere.
This is because a half century has been
devoted to training and specializing men,
each to do one thing best in sewing machine
construction. The Singer's superiority
its lifetime-lasting value does not appear
on the surface.
One machine does sew better than any
other and that one is the Singer.

Mark Twain's Advice to Young Lady
A year or so ago when Mark Twain
was crossing the Atlantic he mude
the acquaintance of a voung woman
who was a pupil of St. Timothy's
Hchool at Catonsville, Md., a suburb
of Baltimore, and promised her that
he would attend the commencement
at her school when she graduated.
Last week Mark made his word good
and following is the advice which he
gave the graduating class:
"There is nothing for me to do but
to tell you young ladies what not to
do. There are three things that you
should never do on any occasion:
"First Don't smoke that is, not
to excess. Xaia 73 and have always
smoked during my seventy-three
years to excess.
"Second Don t drink that is, to
"Third Don't marry that is, to
"Now, if you vouns: ladies refrain
from all these things you will have
all the virtue that auy one will honor
and respect.
'Another thing I want to say, and
that is that honesty is the best policy.
"I remember when I had just writ
ten 'Innocents Abroad,' when I and
my partner wanted to start a news
paper syndicate. AVe needed f'l and
did not know where to get it. While
we were in a quandary I espied a
valuable dorr on the street. I picked
up the canine and sold him to a man
for $3. Afterward the owner of the
dog came along and I got $ 3 from
him for telling him where the dor
was. So I went back and c-ave the
$3 to the man whom I sold itto.und
I have lived honestly ever since."
If anybody elseexcept .Mark Twain,
or some other celebrity, had talked
that way at a graduating commence
ment of a young ladies' institution,
he would have been criticised and de
nounced as a cheat especially if they
had paid his expenses there (they
would not have cared whether he got
back home or not.) But as Mark
Twain said it, it was all right. It
was excruciatingly funny if it was not
smart. And when a thing is funny
and causes people to laugh they enjoy
it and are satisfied . The lesson taught
is to be good natured, to look on
the bright side of life and as far in us
lies to spread sunshine and laughter
as we pass nlong the way.

Charlotte Papers on the Biggers
StatpHviHe Landmark.
It is gratifying lo note that the
Charlotte papers ar speakinsr out
against the verdict in th Higt-rs
case the acquittal of W. S. Biggers,
on the ground of insanity, for the
willful and premeditated slaying of J.
G. Hood. The gratification
in the matter of the Charlot te papers
is the fact that they have the nerve
to speak out against what they be
lieve is a miscarriage of justice. The
Observer of Sundaj-, the day after
the verdict was rendered, said:
Human life, quite cheap enough al
ready, must become much cheaper if
worked-up and perhaps half-feigned
irresponsibility or hysteria is made a
ground of acquittal for crime. Self
control is certainly placed at an
enormous discount in human rela
tions. The conscience and sober
sense of this community have been
shocked by a verdict rendered in
the Mecklenburg Superior Court yes
terday. Expressing the opinion that Big
gers was sane at the time of the
shooting, the News says:
The danger in such verdicts as that
rendered in the Biggers trial is the pre
cedent established. lias it come to that
pitiable pass in the administration of
justice when a murderer, his hands reek
ing with the blood of his fellowman, ig
to be allowed to go scot free of punish
ment if be is able to prove that at some
time prior to, or the moment when he
he committed the crime, he was mentally
unbalanced for a brief period? Jiwt
where we are to draw the dividing
line? Just where will the courts be able
to stop at this rate? Is it .afe
to turn loose a man upon society who
has established bis ability to fly into a
fit of Insanity?
Whenever the newspapers begin to
denounce the prevalent and con
stantly increasing custom of freeing
men who commit murder, we snail
have hope that a change will begin
and that justice may triumph in the
end. Especially is there hope, as in the
Charlotte case, when the newspapers
have the courage to condemn wrong
m their own homes. Speed the day
when the press shall speak as one
man, in thunder tones, against the
murder lust which is a broau ana
practically unrestrained.

Good Roads Movement Which
Has Taken Hold Upon tVye
Country The Man Who is
Directly Working for Good j
Roads, is Directly Working!
for the Betterment of Man-
kind He is Working for!
the Advancement of Educa
tion and Religion and for
all that Makes the Highest
Baltimore Manufacturers' Ueeonl.
The good-roads movement which
has taken hold of the country will Ix
very far-reaching in its effect. We
are entering upon a period in -which
there is to Im a revolution mightily
affecting social conditions and edu
cational and religious advancement,
a period in which the loneliness of
farm life is to be banished by the
closer intercommunication between
the people of the agricultural districts
with each other and with adjacent
towns and cities. Bad roads have
meant more than simply an enor
mous loss, a wastage of time and
effort in getting tlie products of the
farm to market and the merchandise
which the farmer buys from the de
pot back to the country place. The
aggregate cost of bad roads runs
into the hundreds of millions of dol
lars annually, and the farmers and
people away from the centers of pop
ulation are the ones who have had
to pay the cost.
The automobile, the use of which is
helping to stimulate an interest in
good roads is only an expression or
exponent of new conditions upon
which all civilization has entered. We
have come upon a time when the gas
or internal combustion engine has
started a revolution equally as far
reaching in its effect, as thafc of the
locomotive, which for the last three
quarters of a century has been the
greatest material power in human
advancement. The internal-combustion
engine makes possible t he lessen
ing of work on the farm. It makes
possible the pumping of water for
use in country homes and for stock.
It makes possible many things
around a farm and in connection
with farm life heretofore impossible
except by hard manual labor. It
makes possible tLe motor boat,
which is found on every river of the
land. The development of this great
engine for human progress will ne
cessitate a very oroau and rapid
building of good roa'ds, for the auto
mobile in its present uses for pleas
ure is but the forerunner of the auto
truck, which soon will le found in
use t hroughout thecountry wherever
good roads and good streets make
feasible the hauling in this way rath
er than by the slow and costly wagon
of the present.
When one begins seriously to con
template the changes which are be
ing brought on us by the develop
ment of the internal-combustion en
gine, the benefit of the motor boat
und the motor cur, the small farm
engine, the facility of travel which
these things and good roads will
bring about, the imagination is apt
to almost stagger us with the limit
less possible advancement of the ter
iod upo.i which we have entered. The
man who is working for the building
of good roads is directly working for
the betterment of mankind. He is
working for the advancement of ed
cation and religion and for all that
makes the highest civilization. Of
what use are schools and churches in
country districts if for five or six
months of the year country roads
are so impassable that they cannot
be attended? Of what value to the
grower are the products of farms
which can only reach the market at
a cost of transportation by wagon
which eliminates all profit? The
charm of country, the beauty of na
ture are pictured as reasons why
farm life should appeal to the peo
ple, but when farm life merins drud
gery and separations from friends
by reason of bad roads, it is not
to 1 wondered at that the eo
ple of the agricultural districts,
young and old, crowd the cities
in order to get a plac where mod
em conveniences are available.
The construction of good roads will
change this. It will add a thousand
fold to the charms of country life. It
will be the most powerful factor iu
stemming the movement of popula
tion toward the city, and making
the country boy and girl happy at
home. The gosel of good roads
ought to be preached with the zeal
of the missionary, and the farmer,
the merchant, the manufacturer and
the banker, and above all else the
women of the country districts
ought to be incessant workers forth
building of good roads. Let us not
leave unto future generations that
which we should do today.
The South, which ha? lingered co
far in the rear in this work, should
take it up with greater energy than
any other section, and in this way
overcome the deficiencies of the past
and take the lead in the construction
of goods roads. It should be born
iu mind that good roads are not
a luxury only, but a necessity, and
that the cost of their building is not
extravagance, but simply a wise in
vestment. It may probably be sta
ted without contradiction that the
cost of the buildingof any good road
anywhere in this country will bring
about an increase in the value of
adjacent property, and this increased
value will be based on increased earn
ing possibilities, greater than the to
tal cost of the construction of the
road. In view of this fact no town,
no community, is too poor to build
good streets and good roads, for
spending money for such a purpose
if wisely spent, "is the makintr of an
investment that immediately is re
paid to the community by the en
hancement in value of property, and
this enhancement t'ontinu-s on jer
petually. Iet the good work go on.
