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-

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

and demaeoires denounced, and vet

Epsom salts and thy mo administered

and that a few simple sanitary meas

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

newspapers against the deacon for

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.

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

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."

Recently Alleghanv, Pa., has erect

author of "Old Folks at home."
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

before it was snng in the South. On

ONE MILLION DOLLARS FOR A
GOOD STOMACH.
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. Remember you
can obtain Rexall Remedies in Hen
derson only at our. store The Rexall
Store. W. W. Parker, Druggist.

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. If any
man can ever unlock or find that se
