BISHOP KILGO Bishop John C. Kilgo, whose death occurred in Charlotte early yester day morning, was a dominant spirit in the lift' of his timvs. His was n personality and mentality that, ba lieving the things he advocated right, pursued them t with relentless vigor that swepl opposition aside or fell before the store wall of n stronger force. Such a character nloej,,tnov,aUvuys stop to reason clearj$t$ml .jftrfnr matters some times loom largcl n,s mind. Little incidents that'"" men stronger or not as strong would over look caused this admittedly able man to commit errors of judgement that could not be explained. Ever a fighter Bishop Kilgc waged his fight for both large and small things and it seemed to those watching that he at times took the smaller things too seriously. We cannot account for dif ferent intellects. That Bishop Kilgo was a power ful force in the religious and educa tional life of ,'this state there is no question. He rebuilt and share i thn destines of Trinity College, one of the best equipped 'educational institutions in the south; to that he gave the bet ter part of his active days. We have seen peculiar traits in our great men. These traits which appeared large at close view receded as the perception lengthened. So in tho years to come Bishop Kilgo, whb was a stjfrm center during many years of a vigorous life, jvili b? measured by I his achievements. His family and friends can afford t J reft on the. verdict of history. m, ; A GOflVSELECTION The electiontfof Harry W. Link, for mer Hickory "Vitizen, as secretary of the Chamber yt Commerce will meet with general approval among the peo ple who kncwiim and he will win the approval of thVse who have not come in contact with him. As secretary of the Greer Chamber of Commerce, Mr. Link brought a company of Spartan burg faimers jto Hickory and Cataw ba county several years ago. Among newer residents of Hickory he made decidedly fayorable impression. This impression has strengthened as his work has become better known. For several years Mr. Link was city editor of the Spartanburg Herald. He is a capable newspaper jman, a, goqd( mixer, and anan capable of putting across big idejas. ' In calling lim homethe directors of the Chamber of Conime'rce "per formed a gcjpd service to .thisr cn?7 munity. Every nowand then we hear some thing about vhe cost of school admin istration, wlfSch probably is high enough. But -there are other adminis trations which cost more than they vised to. The churches have redoubled their efforts 'in all fields, and require money. Nobody objects to that ser iously; in fact, most people like to see it. To run a newspaper or any oth er business requires from two to five times as much capital as was the case a few years aigo. To furnish and main tain a home requires far more than it did a few years ago. It is everything that costs. The Soldiers' reunion at Newton, always an event in the life of the county, will be on a larger scale than ever before, judging by the program. The reunion '-'committee has provided several prizes'for best floats, the pret tiest girl and the ugliest man. Qther prizes will bc'awarded, but these will attract most', attention. The reunion will be held jjext Thursday. It was a mere pretext that caused trainmen to abandon passenger trains in the far wetit. The troops were need ed to protect 'the property of the rail roads and the,1 lives even of the men who deserted'.their jobs. ., .

Allen of the American Aeronautical Engineering , Society, who is representing with three asso ciates the United States in the glid ing competition at Clermont-Ferrand, yesterday kept the air for 55 setonds, which battered the French record of :7 seconds made the day before Ly Boussoutiot, but falls far short of tho German record of 21 min utes. The Germans, indeed, have got a long start in this important field as a direct result of the provis ions of the treaty of Versailles which for a time forbade the manu facture of engines for air craft. Ger man aviators reflected that gliding, in which their compatriot Lilibnthal was killed not long before the Wright brothers achieved their success, was a good soprt and that it offered op portunities for practice which for 20 years had been neglected. Making the best of the situation, they took to glid ing with such success that their re markable achievements last year made a great impression on British experts who went to Germany to see an exhi bition. The present contest in France is a natural sequal. A glider can of course be made much lighter than an engined aero plane, and the one used by Mr. Allen weighs but 80 pounds as against . 300 pounds for the type used by Bous soutrot and 149 pounds for the best German machine. Mr. Allen has but one machine, and therefore has to use it with discretion, waiting for good days. At Clermont-Ferrand on Monday. , a. Farman biplane piloted by Louis Paulhan was smashed against the side of Mt. Combegras.se, though the pilot was fortunately uninjured. Simultaneously the Germans are holding a competition near Frankfort in which Mr. Allen was invited to par ticipate, though a request from the French aerial federation foir permis sion to" enter a glider was refused. The results achieved, however, will be keen ly watched by the French. At Clermont-Ferrand about 60 competitors are taking part, inspired by prizes which total 100,000 francs. Consideration is given by the judges not only to the distance covered and the duration of the flight, but to the altitude attained, the rate of descent, precision in landing, freedom from accident, and the merit of the model. The American model is a monoplane with 16-foot enclosed body and a tail of the Farman type. The four Americans, all from the Massachu setts Institute of Technology, are Ed mund T. Allen, formerly a test pilot in the United States air service, Har ry C. Karcher, Otto C. Koppen, and Lee A. Agnew. Their work will be watched with interest in this country. Aside from being an exciting sport that must make yachting seem rath er tame, gliding has substantial value as a means of improving the art of aviation. That the Wrights were able to make so many flights without mis adventure was no doubt due to their having, acquired, skill in manipulation by their practice in gliding over the sand dunes of Kittyhawk before they attempted flight with engine power; it is probable also that the art of soaring by. making use of air currents as the big .birds, do is still in its., infancy. But quite apart from the development of personal skill, the practice of this re vived art is considered important as a means of improving the designing of aircraft, and it is said that the Ger mans have already learned some val uable lessons in this way. As a sport it is relatively inexpensive and free from danger, and it might well be tak en up on a large scale by amateurs in this country. As an international .re creation it might easily be put on a footing with yacht racing which holds its own despite the advent of the fast power-boat. AUGUST ' Statesville Landmark. ( August! There is grandeur, stato liness in the word. We don't get it with the usual pronunciation Aug ust, with the accent on the fiirst syllable; If we change it to Au-gtst, with the accent on gust, we catch the idea of stateliness, grandeur, fullness, increase. And August is a grand month, no matter how we call it. The fruits of the earth are abund ant in garden and field and market place. The growing crops are magni ficent, imposing. They are coming to the full and a little later the green, which presents picture of strength and beauty through the countryside, will begin to fade and the crops will ripen Then vegetables, melons and other fruits of the season have reach ed their fullness. They wh.r planted and cultiavted in season arc reaping the harvest; and some are gathering where they did not strew and reaping where they did not sow. August is vacation time too. There is. a little slack in the field work between the need of cultivating and the beginning of harvesting. It is a time' of picnics and "big feel ings" at the rural church. It is a time when the urban dwellers seek connections in the rural regions that they may profit thereby. But August is not a month of unalloyed pleasure or leisure to the thrifty housewife. It is probably the busiest' season of the year to thi3 always busy soul. The picnics, the big meetings and the company, which mean leisure and pleasure to so' any cithers, usual lyl mean extra work for I.er. She has to manage the rush time in car.ning, preserving and pickling; laying by in store against the time of need next winter and spring until fruits and vegetables come again. The work must be done now or it is too late. The busy housewife probably doesn't see the grandeur and the glory in Au gust when she can see cnly urgent work to be doner But the glory and grandeur ave there. August is a great month. Is there another in the calen dar that compares to it? ALREADY FINISHED "Would you be interested in some thing to finish your furniture, ma dam?" asked the salesman at the door. "No," said the housewife sadlv. "We had a home-brew party, here last ight."r Philadelphia Retail Ledger. 1 PREACHER HELPS LAND ALLEGED BOOTLEGGER Practicing the doctrine that he has been preaching for some time, that it is the duty of everyone to do his bit in enforcing the law, Rev. Wr. C. Lyerly, pastor of Trinity Reformed church of this citv. joined with the prohibition forces late yesterday af-J ternoon, and as a result cf his activi ties a half -gallon of "white lightn ing" was- destroyed and a man giving his name as T. II. Honeycutt is lodged in jail charged, one city offici al stated, with having liquor in his possession for the purpose of sale. The fact that Mr. Lyerly was not on a raid and that lie was not look ing for rum runners when his es canede started does not change the fact that when an opportunity arose, hp met the situation squarely and without delay. According to the story told at po lice headquarters, Mr. Lyerly was headed toward Concord on the Gold Hill road lato yesterday afternoc-n when he was stopped near the Catho lic church by a man who asked for a ride to Concord. Mr. Lyerly was alone, he had a five passenger car, k he gladly stopped .The stranger got in the car, placed a package between his feet, and started an animated conversation with his time-beint? be nefactor. Valgus subjects were discussed, according to Mr. Lyerly's statement te the police, and finally the min ister's companion told him' that ne had liquor in the package. Mr. Lyer Iv showed no particular interest in this confession, he told the police, and drove on as though he cared nothing about what the man had in his package. When the.U'dge of the c'ty was reached, the 5pastor did not a?k hi. traveling companion where In. want ed to go. , Instead he drove strnigl to police headquarters, told the of ficers what had happened, and tokt them to arrest Honeycutt. The oi ficers started to do this and Honey cutt immediately grabbed the half gallon jug and smashed it on the ground, the aroma cl its? contents bringing back to those per-50'is stand ing near memories of open saloons and the brass rail, according to ont present at .the extemporaneous christening of the asphalt street. The officers were unable to gathei; the liquo'r evidence whlvh ..hey w.;ilci have used against Hom.'.veutt, but they collected the bottom anil top of the jar and lodged Honeycutt in jail He will be tried for having liquor in his possession for sal.?, one city official stated this morning ' . One police officer this mo'rning stated after a conversation with Honevcutt, that the latter, claimed the liquor was in he car when he got in. When asked why he was so particular to throw it out of ..the car when the 'officers approached, when he din't even know whar. it was, he replied that he "smelled., it, and didn't want to get mixed up in a liquor case. Conccyd Tr ihu ric. THE LITERARY FLAGMAN New York World. The truth about J. Cleve Dean ap pears to be that he is r. serious minded flagman at some crossroads o-n the Alabama Great Southern rail road, with a gift of rhtetoris and an intensely democratic concept of his own importance in the world. Any other flagman in the United States might have sent President Harding a telegram denouncing the attitude of the administration toward the .'hop strike, but probably there was no oth er who could make use of high-flown English and a column-long answer couched in the best of White House prose. This is a real distinction, and Mr. Dean earned it by sheer genius. It. is enough to' make Mr. Gompers, Mr. Jewell and all the shop-craft presi dents green with envy that a non entity in a' backwoods organization should cover himself with glory by dra ing the presidential fire over theiv heads. The promulgations were evidently considered moi-e or less neg ligible, but when Mr. Dean threw dev a his gantlet, Mr Harding rec ogrized an equal in the lists; a foe man worthy of his steel. To one hot paragraph 'prfcerning the bulling blood of "labor he l-eplied with a dozen almost equally hot. ' . In some quarters it is said that a mistake has been made, that ; the TiTPcirlpnt should have inquired m to J the status '6f his challenger. This is nonsense. Mr. Dean may well say that he cares not at all who conducts the railroad strike so lo'ng as he makes its literature,. ... . TODAY Dorothy Dalton in her latest Para mount picture, "The Crimson Chal lenge," heads a cast of really popular players. She has for her leading man Jack Mower, who played one of the princinal parts in Cecil B.'DeMille's "Saturday Night." .
