The gentlemen who have the work in charge are going to close it up sOon and it will not be their fault or ours if Uny concern or individual is left out. It does not lie ia the mouth of "Walter Wellman, braggart and bom bast and self-advertiser that he is, to charge Dr. Cook or any body else with beinir an impostor when he claims to have discovered the North Tole. Wellman has shown himself about the biggest fake on record in connection with the North Pole dis covery. Beyond gainiDg a little cheap notoriety for himself and the news paper he was supposed to represent he did nothing more than to create comment and ridicule by his proposed aerial dash to the Pole. Wellman ought to get quiet and forevee here- , r . . . . after remain hu uuoui umtieni per- taining to the conquest of the North Pole or any controversy concerning it. Boosting a Town. It isn't necessary to have a popu lation of a million, or even ten thou sand to make a town a live centre for business developments says an exchange. It is possible for every in corporated municipality to be dis tinguished from its neighbor, even though its fame extends but a com- Earatively short distance from its orders. That a town has some thing to distinguish it beyond its immediate neighbors is athingworth possessing for the food of the busi ness of that town, therefore it is up to the business men of every town to noise abroad something for which the town may be distinguished, or to bend efforts to produce something out or the ordinary that shall adver tise the town and bring people to it for other reasons than simply and only to do necessary and unavoid able trading, says an exchange. Using Cotton Seed Halls. This from an exchange is worthy of consideration by farmers and truck raisers: "Chemical analysis has shown that cotton seed hulls contain nearlythe same percentage of digestible con stituents as good timothy hay. The latter costs about ir a ton, while cotton seed hulls may be bought for hall that amount and often less. xne nay, however, good as it may De, is almost sure to contain dust, dirt, or other foreign matter that is not only useless for feed but really harmful. On the other hand, cotton seed hulls, in the process of ginning the cotton, are thoroughly cleaned. Both cotton seed meal and hulls are unexcelled as a feed for stock. If you have a horse that does not ap pear to thrive or that will not iret fat, give him half a pound of cotton seed meal mixed with threo pounds of hulls, well salted, every day for about two weeks and you will be able to note a marked improvement in nis appearance and capacity. Sensible Utterance on Worm. the Hook- Tbomnsville Charity and Children. The most sensible utterance on the Hook-worm fund that we have seen is from the Lexington Dispatch, one of the most sensible papers in the State. The Dispatch says: "when a doctor came along and remarked casually that we had hook-worms we naturally reached up to the forks over the door and took down the trustv old crun. Editors thnnilprpd and demaeoires denounced, and vet right then two million people in the South were Buffering with this hook-- woraa disease and didn't know any more than the editors and the riVnm- gogers did that a few cents worth of Epsom salts and thy mo administered by a physician would cure any case. and that a few simple sanitary meas ures would prevent a spread of the infection. That's all there is to it and Rockefellers million will go far towards removing the evil in the! feoutn. e do not recall anything I quite 60 absurd as the tirade of the newspapers against the deacon for trying to bring relief to the afflicted.

Will Be Observed by Public Schools of the State December 17. The State superintendent of public instruction has appointed December 17th aa North Carolina day in the public Bcbools for this year. The pro gram deals with the history and re sources of the sixteen mountan coun ties. It was prepared by request of the State superintendent by K. D. W. Connor, secretary of the State histori commiagion; The table of con. tentg gn0W8 tne following subjects for study: Gaston's, "The Old North State:" "The Land of the Sky;" "His- (a' TSr. imn P.

In the preface to the pamphlet, Superintendent Joyner says: rtAs many of the public schools are not in session as early as October 12, I have taken the liberty allowed un der the law of fiiingthedateof North Carolina day this year and hereafter on the last Friday before Christmas. It is earnestly desired that all the public schools of the State shall en- cage in this celebration on the same day. This pamphlet has been pre- Pnr al sent out to aid busy teach- ers ia the proper celebration of the . . tftiPft;,A noPtfnspfnr ffiiline- J n to celebrate it. "The consecration of at least one day in the year to the public consid eration of the history of the State in the public schools, as directed by the act of the general assembly printed on the preceding page, is a beautiful idea. It is the duty of every public school teacher to obey the letter of this law. It will, I know, be the pleas ure of every patriotic teacher to obey the spirit of it by using the opportun ity of North Carolina day to inspire the children with a new pride in their State, njiew enthusiasm for the study of her history, and a new love of her and her people."

Now Memphis Tias on foot a project to erect a monument to Dan brnmett, the author of "Dixie " Noting: this project the Washington Herald gives the following interesting sketch of Emmett: "'Uncle Dan' Eemmett, while of Southern parentage, was born in Ohio. He became a minstrel and drifted to New York, where, in 1859, he joined Bryant s minstrels. One of his tasks was to compose comic negro melodies and plantation songs One Saturday night Mr. Bryan asked him to prepare a new plantation 'walk-around,' one with a lrvely, oatchy chorus, that the boys could learn quickly and sing through the streets, so as to make it popular As it rained all next day, Sunday, 'Uncle Dan was forced to remain in doors, and it was then that he com posed 'Dixie' as it is at present sung. "it was farst produced in Mechan ics' Hall by Bryant's miustrels, Sep tember 19th, 1859, fully 18 months before it was snng in the South. On the other hand, it first appeared in print in New Orleans, and spread like wild lire throughout the Southern States. n 1 II I .

The University sermon for November was preached by Eev. Neill Anderson, of Winston-Salem, before a large audience in Gerrand Hall. , His sermon was a forceful exposition of the place of the supernatural and miraculous in religion. The Varsity football team held its annual banquet last week iu honor of the recently chosen winners of the covet ed right to the North Carolina sweater. Speeches were made by Dr. R. B. Law son, physical director of the University, and Dr. D. H. Dolly, brofesaor of Pathol ogy, both premier athletes in their col lege days. Coach Arthur E.

Rubbing an aching back may relieve it, Rut it won't cure it. You must reach the root of it the kidneys. Doan s Kidney Pills go right at it; Reach the cause; relieve the pain. They eure, too, so Henderson people say. L. Y. Holloman, 412 Andrews Ave., Henderson, N. C, says: "I cheerfully Tecommend Doan's Kidney Pills, for I re ceived great relief from their use. A sore ness across the small of my back both ered me constantly and prevented me from sleeping well at night. The kidney secretions were also too frequent in pas sage, highly colored and failed with sed iment. Learning of Doan's Kidney Pills, I obtained a box from the Kerner-Mc- Nair Co.'s drug store and after using them a short time I was freed from the backache and other annoyances.

This Offer Should be a Warning to Every nan and Woman. The newspapers and medical jour nals have had much to say relative to a famous millionaire's offer of a million dollars for a new stomach. This great multi-millionaire was too busy to worry about the condi tion of his stomach. He allowed his dyspepsia to run from bad to worse until in the end it became incurable. His misfortune should serve as a warning to others. Every one who suffers with dyspepsia for a few years will give everything he owns for a new stomach. Dyspepsia is caused by an abnor mal state of the gastric juices. There is one element missing Pepsin. The absence of this destroys the function of the gastric fluids. They lose their power to digest food. We are now able to supply the pep sin in a form almost indentical to that naturally created by the system when in normal health, so that it re stores to the gastric juices their di gestive power, and thus makes the stomach strong and well. We want every one troubled with indigestion and dyspepsia to come to our store and obtafn a box of 1'exall Dispepsia Tablets. They con t.in Bismuth-Subnitrate and Pepsin p-epared by a process which develops t!:eir greatest power to overcome di g stive disturbance. Rexall Dyspepsia Tablets are very p easant to take. They poothe the irritable, weak stomach, strengthen and invigorate the digestive organs, relieve nausea and indigestion, 'pro mote nutrition and bring about a feeling of comfort. If you give Rexall Dyspepsia Tab lets a reasonable trial we will return your money if you are not satisfied with the result. Three sizes, 23 cents, 50 cents and 1.00.

THE BUCK DIAMOND It Is One of the Curiosities of the Mineral Kingdom A PUZZLE TO SCIENTISTS. Nature Has In Some Peculiar Way Produced This Rare Form of Carbon and Then Thrown Away the Secret of the Process Found Only In Brazil. The term "black diamonds" Is some times jokingly applied to ordinary coal which we burn Iu our furnaces, but the real "black diamonds" of com merce are among the most unique min eral products of the world, find they ; serve a purpose in the industrial world ; that makes them of great value. The i black diamonds are pure carbon and yet In no outward appearance resem ble the diamonds which we are accus tomed to wear as ornaments. They are slightly harder than the crystal or gem diamonds and. In fact, about the hardest substance known. Black diamonds, or carbons, are mineral kingdom. Tbev are without! crystalline form and are found in ir regular pieces, ranging in .size from half a carat up to three, four and five i hundred carats. They are daiik gray, black or brownish in color arid opaque. The real diamond of the jewelry tradt is also pure carbon, . but translucent and crystalline In form. Two objects so alike in composition could not be found so opposite in appearance as these two forms of carbon. Another peculiar thing about the black diamonds Is that, they are found only In one locality in the world. They come from a very small section of Bra zil not more than 225 miles square in area. Outside of this limited territory no pure black diamonds have ever been found. What peculiar freak of nature caus ed the deposition of the black dia monds in this section of the world and nowhere else is one of the mysteries which science has failed to explain. None of them has been found in the great Kimberley diamond regions, where the crystal form of diamonds heve for so long been mined. The whole origin of the black dia mond is, therefore, a scientific enigma. Naturally the question is raised, 'Of what use is a black diamond V" No one would care to wear one of these diamonds, which resembles a piece of coal more than a real diamond,;and so far no one has popularized the ack gems as the black pearl has been. Nevertheless the black diamonds serve a most important and useful function in the industrial world. This pure black carbon is not only harder than the real diamond, but tougher and not so brittle as the gem. Consequently It is of great value for many mechanical purposes and partic ularly for boring with diamond drills. In diamond drilling the tips of the drills are studded with carbon, or black diamonds, and when the bores are deep the pressure is so great that the gem diamonds would be crushed in the process. But the carbon resists this continued pressure and slowly eats down Into the rocks. , In diamond drill work the carbon ia set in "circular pieces of soft steel or iron, called bits, and these bits are at tached to tubing. Armed with these black diamond teeth, the drills push their way down under severe pressure to a depth of five and six thousand feet, cutting through the hardest kind of rock. Some black diamonds are much harder than others, and there is no way to determine by the color tbe difference In the degree of toughness. Black diamonds or pure carbou are not by any means cheap, aud the own ers of the mines iu Brazil where they are gathered are making a good thing out of their monopoly. There is no known substance that ,can tako the place of carbou in drills iu boring for gold, sliver, copper and other mineral deposits. Before the black diamonds of Brazil were discovered it was im possible to make borings. When the carbou was first 'introduc ed in our industries it was used in diamond saws for cutting stones, mar ble and similar substances. Then the price advanced so that the carbon was found too costly for such use. and bort was substituted for stone cutting. Bort is really au imperfect crjvtal or gem diamond, but it is too bri for use In drills. Consequently be has tak en the place -of black diamonds for stone cutting, and the inter have been restricted almost entirely to diamond drilling purposes. The average size of bhick diamonds used In the drills ranges from two to five carats, but the larger secimens give much better results. They, cost more, but they last longer. Conse quently there is a greater demand for the larger pieces of pure carbon, and the 'price is sometimes run up to pre mium figures for unusual specinieus. - The fear that the supply of H.-n-u diamonds may sonic -i.-iy give but :ul paralyze the diamond drilling industiy has stimulated proseitrs to syste matic search for new deposits, but so far they have not been successful. On the other hand" scientists have been making a close study of the chemical conditions which have produced the black diamonds, but their manufacture is apparently about as difficult 'as , the making of the gem diamonds.' It is possible under certain conditions to make either, but in;t in si'es sufficient to he or any commercial valued .Na ture In some peculiar way has made these raj"e products ,1 then thrown the secret of the pro nwny.
