Sntwvill? !,atiiJrn;irk.
Dr. Archibald Johnson, of Charity
und rii'dr-ii, carries a club for hon
or irv military titlen. He in opposed
to p.j.sMnir out captain and major
and colonel to m-ri rthoii'-vernmeiled
powder in actual Her vice, and in the
lat iyMje of his pnper Iwfore ChriHt
iriHs he took a fall out of this prac
tice. A- soon as the article wan read
in The Landmark office we thought
of Col. Wade Harris and t he colonel
himself has taken notice. In the
Chronicle of Saturday he says:
"We are goinjr to awk him John
hoii to pass us. Hang it all !
Doesn't he know that if Ashley
Home had been elected Governor,
we would have been a full-fledged
colonel on his utaff, gold braid, braes
buttons and all?"
That's it! Once before when Dr.
Johnson Ml upon the rasjorsand the
colonels with his club The Landmark
cited Col. Harris' case to hira und
asked him to moke a npecial excep
tion. When Ashley Home failed of
the governorship and Col. Harris
failed of direct appointment as col
onel, his friends, feeling that he had
fully earned the title in thestrenuous
warfare he made for Home, proceed
ed to place him on the list; and we
must again ask Dr. Johnson to ex
cept Col. Harris by name when he
goes after the colonels, for every time
lie takes a shot Col. Harris jumps as
if the doctor was aiming directly at
him. The doctor may intend to ex
cept his friends but he should say so
and not leave them in doubt, and if
he is a friend of Col. Harris he will
hereafter bear his case in';mind. The
Landmark has a special interest in
this case be -ause it helped to make
Harris a colonel, and moreover if Dr.
Johnson keeps up his war on the
honorary titles he may next fall on
the folks who are called judges by
The Mid Winter Press Meeting.
Concern Tribune.
The mid-winter meeting of the
North Carolina Press Association
promises to be one of unusual inter
est. It will be held on Tuesday and
Wednesday, January 24 and 25, and
on the morning of January 2G the
editorial party will be taken on an
excursion to Florence and Charleston
and will receive courtesies at the
hands of the people of each city. Of
course, Winston-Salem will provide
ample entertainment, and it is not
expected that time there will hang
heavy on the editors' hands.
Dehorning Calves.
I.ini-oltitun Nt-WH.
Dehorning is such a simple opera
tion that it is difficult toexplain why
it is ever postponed until the calves
are fully grown and necessity arises
for sawing them off. To dehorn, se
cure a pencil of caustic potash at a
drug store. When the calf is three
days old locate the little knot that
indicates the young horn, wet it and
rub with the pencil, held in a gloved
hand. This is alj there is to the
operation. It constitutes but a few
minutes' work and causes no pain to
the animals.
Better to Have Resolved and Fail
ed Than Not to Have Resolved
at All.
StatpTille Landmark.
New Year resolves are spoken of with
more or less flippancy because so few
are kept, but the beginning of a New
Year is nevertheless a time for reflec
tion, a time to set our faces to the
front with new hope and courage and
an earnest purpose to do bet ter in the
future than in the past. The resolves
should be few, and having made them
there should be an earnest striving
to live up to them. The New Year is
a good time says Orison Sweet Mar
den, in Success Mugaiine, 'to drop
the yesterdays, to forget bitter mem
ories"; and further:
"Resolve that when you cross the
line between the old and the New
Year you will close the door on every
thing in the past t hat pains and can
not help you. Free yourself from
everything that handicaps you, keeps
you back and makes you unhappy.
Throw away all useless baggage,
drop everything that is a drag that
hinders your progress. Enter the
door of the New Year with a cleau
slate and a free mind. Don't be
mortgaged to the past, and never
look back."
That is worth thinking about,
worth striving for.
Negroes Condemn Crime.
Stiit-vill Laixitnurk.
Colored citizens of Oxford, in mass
meeting last week, passed resolu
tions condemning the horrible crime
committed by one of their race in
Granville county, (near Hester) and
pledged their support to law and
order. It is well. The better element
of colored people do not, of course,
sympathize with the criminals of
their race, but as a larger part of the
colored people are usually disposed
to stand by their color under all
circumstances, it is not only proper,
but will have .a good effect, for those
who do condemn the criminal class
to stand up and say so.

"No Stae in the South is increas
ing more rapidity in population and
material wealth than North Carolina.
When i he o-n-us figures were an
nounced last wvek many were sur
prised to find that its population
had jriowa in ten ye ars from 1,8'J3,
810 to 2,200,287, ranking next to
Kentucky and not far lehind Geor
gia. Hut the growth in population
by no tri'-aiisequals the rapid develop
ment of its industries. Cardinal Gib
bons who lived in that State and
served his first bishopric there, was
surprised to find on passing through
that territory a few weeks ago au
almost continuous line of factories
from South Carolina to the Virginia
'Congressman Charles K. Thomas,
of New I.ei n, N. C, in his address be
fore the North Carolina Society of
Baltimore Friday night gave some
facts that duliiihted the natives of
that State who now reside in this city.
The educitional movement, started
let-s than twenty years ago, has re
sulte.l in the. erection of large normal
industrial and agricultural colleges
for both men and women, expansion
of the State University uiidthedozen
denominational colleges, and one
modern public! school house is now
leing built for every day in the year.
From 1800 to 1905, as the census
h'gufvs show, the wealth of theSouth
increase.! 1,000.000,000, and of
this increase $i;i7,000,000 was in
North Carolina, lieing exceeded only
bv Texas. The State now raises
nearly 700,000 bales of cotton a year,
and her more than ,'00 mills consume
thousands of bales raised in other
sections. The remarkable develop
ment of the manufacture of cotton,
tobau-o and furniture has been ac
complished largely with homecapital,
and nearly all the factories a re owned
by local investors.
"'The immense water power genera

the sa is now being developed. This
is estimated at 3.500,000 horse
power. Congressman Thomas pre
dicts that this water power will in
time transform it into one of the
greatest manufacturing sections or
the I nion.
"The census statistics prove that
in nearly every Eastern State which
shows a notable growth in popula-
tion the increase has been largely
due to the immigration of foreign
ers. This is not so in North Carolina,
which has fewer foreigners than any
other State, practically is entire
population being of native birth.
She has furnished many thousands
of good citizens to other States, es
pecially to the cities of t he North and
the new common wealths of the Union,
and yet in ten years has added 323,
277 to her own population, which is
evidence enough that the North
Carolinians are prolific as well as en
terprising. It is a country of homes
and of big families, a State with no
big city but plenty of lively towns, a
commonwealth peopled by sturdy,
patriotic Americans, who hold to
the"faith of the fathers,' and who

people can do with their own re
sources on their own soil."
Such an article as this in the Sun
is appreciated. It does the State
good by attracting other people to
the State. It shows them what the
State is doing and presents its re
sources to a large field. It is grati

know that others are taking notice
of what is being done.
Appeals to Law Instead of Wield
ing a Stick.
Stntesville Landmark.
Arthur Brown, a former resident
and former member of the city coun
cil of Fredericksburg, Va., now of
Philadelphia, hasentered suit against
Judge Alvin T. Embrey for $10,000
damages for alleged defamation of
character by Judge Embrey in his
argument before a jury in a case in
which Brown was a witness. This is
unusual. It is not uncommon for
lawyers to abuse often without ex
cusedwitnesses and litigants for the
purpose of beclouding the issue. But
usually the party who is abused
without stint has no recourse. If he
attempt to take it out of the hide of
the lawyer he may lose in the scrap
and get punished in court, for the
court being a lawyer, naturally sym
pathizes with lawyers. When called
to taw the lawyer will usually explain
that he meant no harm, but that is
poor consolation to the man who
has been held tip before a public as
semblage and pictured as a horse
thief, or worse. The result of the
damage suit as the remedy will be
watched with interest. The plaintiff
will be handicapped, for the court
and lawyers generally will naturally
be out of sympathy with him and he
need not be surprised if he finds the
law interpreted contrary to his con
tention. His only hope is in the jury,
where he would naturally have sym
pathizers, but if he gets a verdict the
Supreme Court composed of lawyers,
may prove his undoing. J3ut Low

The Brightest Spot On Earth.
A happy home is the brightest spot
on earth that the eye of God looks
down upon, says a writer. Love and
peace in his home sends sunshine
around the man wherever he goes;
but let there be disorder and trouble,
' and there is misery every where. There
are few worries of life which a man
cannot now und then --bake off, but
who can shake himself free from the
skeleton in the closet, from the worry
f of the household, a blister on the
heart? A day will tell how nanr a
man carried that with him without
wincing down to Ihrf grave When
husband arid wife are helpmate to
each other in the best sense; when
order and love and goodness prevail
in the house, then the man who has a
hard battle in life to fight can leave
his struggles behind him when he
enters there. With all our faults we
are the most home loving of people,
and that is the reason why we are the
greatest of people. Whatever helps
home life is a national blessing;
whatever hurts home life is a national
curse, and the greatest curse that
can touch these blessings is what
would tamper with the peace and
blessedness of our homes.
Oh The Pity of It !
Stutesville Landmark.
The joys of the Christmas season
are always n.arred by the crimes and
casualties, always apparently more
numerous at this reason than any
other. The Landmark carries today
a sad record of both crimes and cas
ualties for the past week and by no
means all are included in the list.
To our mind, the saddest occurrence
in the State was the killing of the
little girl in Wilmington by an auto
mobile. Just as the child was show
ing to a companion the toys sh- had
gotten from a Christmas tree her
brains were dashed out. Oh it was
Foodstuffs First.
Greensboro New.
We have tried our hand at advis
ing a diversity of crops co often and
so persistently that some may think
us cranks on the t-ubject, but let that
go, we still insist that it is one of the
most important problems confront
ing a large number of our people.
In the spring when cotton or to
baeco promises large prices the
temptation for a farmer to devote
almost his entire time to these money
crops is strong, and, sometimes, in
fact, altogether too often, he yields
to that temptation.
But now, when winter is coming
on, when he finds that he must sell
his money crop at whatever prices
he can get for it because he has not
the means to live and pay his debts
while he holds it, when he awakes to
a realization of the lamentable fact
that he has paid so much attention
to his own main crop that he has
not provided foodstuffs for himself
and his stock during the winter, the
question assumes a different aspect.
We do not care what may be the
price of cotton or tobacco or any
other crop which must be sold to be
of any service to its producer, we
still insist that no mau can have the
greatest possible amount of success
as a farmer who does not first and
foremost provide himself with all his
own needs from his own farm as
nearly as he can and then devote his
secondary and not his primary at
tention to a crop which is for sale
and useful only when sold.
Good Bye, Old Year.
(). H. in Charlotte Chronicle.
Oood-bye Old Year! You have brought us
tears we know.
And long, dark days, aad winds and snow
Days when onr hearts were filled with cow
aid fears,
When we could claim no answered prayers.
But ah! the sunny days you brought us
When earth was green and skies were blue,
And just to live and breathe thesun-warmed
To watch the glory everywhere
Was luxury, and hearts grew strong, and
Revived, nor will we fear to cope
With veiled possibilities that stand
Laden with gifts for us on either hand
Like sentinels about your dying day.
For now we lift our eyes and hearts and say,
"O. Father, God, while Thou art nar
We trust in Thee we will not fear."
And so to the Old Year we say good-bye,
Since 'tis God's will that thou should'st die.
Who knows? Perchance upon the other
We'll meet again where time is o'er
Till then good-bye, Old Year Ood -bye!

Our experience with Rexall Dys

them to be the greatest remedy
known for the relief of acute Indiges

one of the greatest digestive aids
known to medicine. The relief they
afford is almost immediate. Then

were darkened by the taking away of
loved ones, while the death angel
recognized the marks on the lintels of
other homes and passed them by.

All in all, 1910 was a good year.
