ESTABLISHED x88i. BY THAD R. MANNING. THURSDAY. SEPT. 2, 1909. As the Darham Herald well says one of the best arguments in favor of good roads is that no county that Las once started the work haa seen fit to give it up. There are others beside the Wrights f ho seem to have "cut a flger" as flying machine men and Glenn H. Curtiss is one of them. Hurrah for America genius and dar- iDS- , This from the Durham Herald with regard to the tariff legislature, about expresses the situation: The Republicans did about what we expected them to do, but we did not expect to see Mr. Taft so easily pleased. A uaby boy with two faces was born in Western North Carolina the past week, but it died. Politicians are not born that way, but they have a hand for everybody that comes along. Wilmington Star. But some of them become "two faeed" after they enter politics. Pebhaps Americans are no smarter than other folks but they have a way of getting there. In the Mara thon races in England an American was the winner, and in the flying machine contests in France, another American carries off the honors. Great is America and American gen ius, daring and endurance. But nobody ever heard of pellagra until we had prohibition and maybe it is a lack of the essence of corn that is doing the business. Durham Her ald. Joe King must put up a better ex planation than that. The women are not generally addicted to the use of corn in the liquid form and yet they are no more immune from at tacks of the dreaded disease than the male population some of whom on occasion are. We all feel proud that an American came out ahead in the flying machine contests in France. Glenn II. Curtiss, an aviator whose exploits in New York and New Jersey attracted some attention about the time the Wrights were making this governtnent tests at Fort Myer, was the man who won the Gordon Bennett trophy. This means that the contests next year for the prize will be held in the United States. A few years ago the Democrat who accepted a job under the Republican administration was looked upon as a traitor to his party, but dot they are asking for them as if they be longed to them. Durham Herald. The poor fellows want office and they see no prospect of ever getting it from their own party in National affairs. If they don't get a job from the Republican administraton, how else are they going to get it? And if they don't a9k for it they are not likely to get it, eo there you are. Of Mr. Thomas M. Hufham whose ad and sudden death was chronicled recently, the Charlotte Observer said this: Thomas M. Hufham was one of the most valued of the Sunday Obser ver's contributors. His wide knowl edge of men and affairs, a brilliant mind, and polished, entertaining style were appreciated by those who read his writings, which were much sought after. Unfortunately for those who read after him he was a busy man and his contributions were re ceived infrequently. His article on political conditions, past and pres ent, are among the best The Obser ver has been privileged to publish. We are asked to publish the anti trust law as enacted by the late North Carolina legislature. Our private opinion of the anti-trust law publicly expressed, is that is a farce and a fraud political grand stand play which amounts to nothing. We may be mistaken in this of course, but we are basing an opinion upon the effectiveness of this law what has not been done to enforce it. If this anti-trust law has "teeth," then why not enforce it? If it does -not mean anything why keep up the agi gation about it? Business is one thing and political deraagoguery is another. INDEPENDENT COMPANY MAY MOVE TO DURHAM. A special from Durham says the Khedival Tobacco Company, of New York City, with a quarter million dollar plant, is contemplating mov ing to that city where it will start a large independent company for the manufacture of smoking tobacco. With an independent tobacco com pany thinking of moving to Durham, it does not look like there is such a trust on tobacco at last. $100 Reward, $100.

OPINION DIVIDED. 8. C. Adams a fanner belonging to the Farmers'jAssociationin a speech at Danville, Va., last week praised the American Tobacco Company de manding the elimination of the mid dle man and urging farmers to sell their tobacco direct to the American Tobacco Company. The American is being encouraged and praised by Vir ginia farmers and lambasted by some North Carolina newspapers. Better bear awhile longer the ills we have rather than fly to others. Supply and demand at last are the great arbitors of values, and we should counsel the kindest feelings between seller and buyer at all times. Those who would deliberately array one against the other is not a friend to the commercial and industrial in terest of the State. Let's all pull to gether, it would be to the mutual in terest of both sellers and buyers. A NORTH CAROLINA AIRSHIP. A North Carolina man has come to the front now as the inventor of an airship. The Wilmington Star says that a resident of its city has invented a flying machine which it declares will fly. The Star man has seen it fly, or rather the model, as the inventor has not yet built a machine large enough to carry a man. According to the Star this machine has the characteristic which Edison said would have to be adopted before aerial navigation could be made suc cessfulthat of going straight up into the air before beginning a for ward movement. No wheels, runways or other starting devices are needed. The inventor, who is an old citizen of Wilmington, has faith in his machine and believes he has discovered and brought into play the right principle. "KENTUCKY TOBACCO WAR. Independent manufacturers have filed suit against the Burley Tobacco Society, claiming heavy damages, 135,520, on the ground that they were overcharged on tobacco they were obliged to buy from the said Burley Tobacco Society. An Associ ated Press dispatch says: "The suit is filed under the Sher man anti-trust law, and the Burley Society is charged with being a mo nopoly in restraint of trade. "Nineteen Kentucky tobacco grow ers and two Ohio growers are named as party defendants. The Burley Society is charged with entering into a conspiracy with these growers to coutrol the' white burley tobacco market in the United States." What is sauce for the goose is sauce for the gander. The tobacco trust is not interested. "Sick 'em, tige." North Carolina's late great rail road "baiting" governor (wasn't that what be was distinguished for?) continues to keep in the limelight. Not long ago he attracted attention to himself by his gross misrepresen tation of the "mountain whites" of his own State, a slander which he at tempted to repudiate afterward when his words were resented by the press at home, and now the discovery is made that New York and Chicago are modern Sodom and Gormorrahs that stand in jeopardy of a visitation of the wrath of the Almighty and being destroyed without remedy. There are ways enough in the world for every man to have one of his own and the inventive genius of some folks for drawing attention to themselves is amazing. A Faithful Pair. Mr. I). N. Hunt, of Oxford, sends the Gold Leaf a souvenir card photograph of himself and his horse Benbow, the animal with a record of having carried the mail 27,000 miles. The likeness of Benbow and the bug uie are true to nature but the pic ture of "D. N." is a bit flattered, and makes him appear good looking. Mr. Hunt is president of the Rural Letter Carriers' Association of Granville, Vance, Warren and Halifax counties, and is also chaplain of the State organization of carriers. lie has been in the service nearly six years. Benbow carried the mail the first day he went out and the last. They are a faithful pair. Card of Thanks.

A. Thomas. Raleigh News and Observer. In the passing away of Editor J. A. Thomas, of Louisburg, the State has lost one of its most loyal and patriotic sons, a distinct loss to bis church.his county, his profession and to his community, besides that oth er keen and beart breaking loss which comes to those of his own family circle. Editor Thomas, for it is as the ed itor of the Franklin Times that he became a power of uplift to bis town, his county and his section, was & man who did not spare himself, his time or his means when it came to the question of helping others. He was a big hearted man, loyal and true to every interest, broad-minded and level-headed, a staunch friend and a valued adviser. He had that fersonal quality that tied men to im as with hooks of steel and the death call to him has found an echo in the grief of many who esteemed and loved him, and who in the famil iarity of friendship from man to man affectionately called him "Dolly." There was a hard struggle made to save his life, but his disease went be- yond the help of medical ekiTl and! he was called hence. In his town and county there is deep grief among ' all classes, for he naa won a piace in the hearts of his people, a Christian gentleman ever ready to lend a help ing hand and to give support to a good cause. His people had honor ed him, for three times he had been a town commissioner, four times the mayor of Louisburg, and for three terms the treasurer of Franklin county, filling every position with credit and honor to himeelf and to the people. As a party leader of the Democ racy Mr. Thomas stood as one of its best and truest members. In times of conflict he was a champion of its measures and its principles. For fif teen years the chairman of the Coun ty Democratic Executive Commit tee, for years a member of the Con gressional and State executive committees and a delegate to the National Democratic Convention, his influence was strong. At the last State Convention he was continued as a member of the Central Executive vj Committee, his services proving al ways of value to the Democratic party. As a newspaper-man he had made the Franklin Times a power in his county and section, one of the ablest of the exponents of Democ racy and one of the best of county papers, having been its owner and ed itor for thirty years. His co-laborers of the State press, recognizing his worth, elected him as President of the State Press Association, a posi tion which he held in 1908-1909. His death is a loss to the editorial forces of the State. Asa man among men he had won a place, and as a true man, a true son of North Carolina he will be mourned. He gave freely as God had given him to give, and the best tribute that can pe paid to him is to say that he is mourned. Many hearts have been saddened by the news of his death, many tears have been shed, and the flowers that are spread in all their loveliness above the new made mound in the cemetery at Louisburg will whisper the message of love from many, "Good night, true and tried friend; good bye, loyal son of North Carolina."

It is the fashion to "cuss out" the American Tobacco Company and many a politician has sailed into of fice by doing so. Some of the tobacco farmers, however, now seem to be seeing another side to the matter a nd have actually gone on record as favoring the trust and adopting a whereas and a resolution to sell to it direct in preference to selling in the tobacco warehouses. This action was taken in Danville, last week, at a meeting of the Mutual Protective As sociation of the Bright Tobacco Growers of Virginia and North Caro lina. According to the report in The Danville Bee, the vice-president of the association of BrightTobacco Grow ers in his speech outlined a policy of friendship nnd good faith with the American Tobacco Company, which in the prist has been arraigned and criticised nt practically every gather ing of the organization. He declared that it was not the intention of the association to destroy the American Tobacco Company's business, but to build it up. He said that in this cor poration the farmers found the greatest and best methods of hand ling tobacco ever devised; that in their dealings with the trust, they "have been met with fairnes3 and straightforward business methods by the American Tobacco Company and every demand has been granted." If this doctrine is endorsed by the to bacco growers in general there is go ing to be a good many headaches in political circles.

Greenville Reflector. Elsewhere in this issue is an article taken from the Southern Tobacco Journal of Winston-Salem, relative to the loss of trade in leal tobacco between America and Japan. The article is based upon figures in a re cent government report, and is there fore accurate. Any one reading this article carefully will see that the pres ent low price of common leaf tobacco is not without reason. A buyer can not be expected to purchase an arti cle for which he cannot find a sale. . In the early years of the tobacco industry in Eastern North Carolina the farmers did not trouble to save much of the low grade under-prim-ings, but when it was found that a demand had been created for low grades more attention was given to saving every leaf that could be cured. While there was no domestic demand for any manufactured product from these low grades, a sale was found for it in Japan, and that country be came a large user of it. The figures in the report referred to show how rapidly this demand grew, until Ja pan was purchasing nearly seven and three quarter million pounds of this tobacco in a single year, and also that bv the Jananese Govern- ment going into the cultivation of . V 1 . 1.1. toDaeco ana mating a graae max. took the place of the purchases made in America, resulting in the Ameri can trade falling back to a little more than two million pounds in a year. -.. It is also a fact as The Reflector learns from reliable sources, that Eastern North Carolina alone pro- duces about eight million pounds a jyear of this common tobacco, and Iwith Japan nowusing only about two million pounds of this, and prac tically no demand for it elsewhere, it is seen at a glance that there is a great overproduction of it and the price cannot be other than low. It is folly to abuse anybody because the price of an article is low when there is no demand for it. There is a remedy for this, but it lies mainly with the farmers them selves. They must stop saving this u common tobacco and give attention only to better grades for which there is demand at profitable prices. Time and again the farmers of Pitt and surrounding counties have been ad vised to prime off the lower leaves of their crop and throw them back to the enrichment of the soil, as there was no profit in curing and market ing it. In this connection it is not amiss to refer (in addition to what this paper has said editorially) to articles written by Mr. E. B. Ficklen, and especially to those by Mr. O. L. Joyner, president of the Farmers Consolidated Tobacco Company. The latter, in keeping with the prin ciples of his company to always pro tect the interests of the tobacco farm ers, has not only been a liberal user of newspaper space but also, at large expense, sent out thousands of circu lars advising farmers to curtail their crop and to strive to produce the higher grades. He has repeatedly urged the farmers that the only rea sonable way to control the price of i 1 i . til n I tooacco is zo control tne price oi pro duction, and make tne quality reH quired by the trade. The farmers must make up their minds to act upon the advice of such men who are la boring so earnestly in their behalf, or else continue to sell their crop at less than it costs to produce it. No relief is going to be obtained by a contin uance of overproduction, and then listeuing to a cry of abuse of others and misrepresentation of the real facts. We hope that every tobacco farm er into whose hands this paper falls will turn to the article referred to and give it a careful reading, and from it get an insight into tions. existing condi- HIDDEN J)ANGERS.

Dull nagging backaches and pains in my kidneys annoyed me for a long time and I was also bothered by frequent passage of the kidney secretions. I always felt tired and languid and had so little energy, that my housework was a burden.
