The Morally Stunted Com Up 5miling. rhartttltf Ohrnn, You uever know how the Moral ly Miiuted are going to look at a thing or what they are really think inc. Here iu North Carolina when the Watts liquor bill was Intro dtieed in the Legislature and while it was under dinrtuwion they tu-reanied as if they were being half killed. Since it has pavied and the legislature has adjourned yon ran see one of them grin a quarter of a mile. .higntwt philauthrophy. Yet the ! general feeling toward Mr. Carne- u nw uuv oi gratiiuuv or auer tlou or even esteem. Ou the eon 1 1 trary. the reports of his bra-far tioiM seem to create diatinet irrita tion among all clawa aud eoudi- tions of men. We don't know whether Mr. Carnegie appreciates this fact or not. He is pretty well rurtinca behind a considerable self esteem which, in its turn, is guard ed by secretaries and by small vol nnteer bands of lesser millionaires, Itut it ia the well kuown truth. nevertheless, that people are rather anuoyed than pleased by Mr. Car negie and his gill. It would hard ly be going too far to say that the man w ho hangiven more money for the benefit of the public than any philanthropist of ancient or mod ern times is one of the mut nnpop- niar men In America. V e uote this fact with sincere regret, for we believe Mr. Carnegie honcKlly spires to benefit his race with his millions and that his desire to ei ploit his own name is secondary to uis main onject.

I'n-.livlrrtan atan.lard. It may 1 just as well to put a pin right here and say that the de cline of temperance sentiment in Vermont is due to t tic decadence of that NUtc throngh the emigration of the best and immigration of the worst elements. While the ad vance of tem prance sentiment in the Mouth is due to the fact that a body of Anglo taxon freemen have the ballot in their own hands, thank you. The Cry for Much Legislation. R.trklnh'ham AiiKlNai-in. Kvery phase'of questions, from moving a court house to Pembroke, regulating tho hatching of turtle eggs and the catching of "wnall" mullets, clear on up in the order of their dignity and importance to amending the Federal constitution, conies before a legislature. There is a disposition! lol regulate every imaginable thing by law. Home people seem lo think that the rem edy for every inconvenience or fol ly is to put somebody in Jail. One wants to make it a juilable oflcuse for a tenant whose landlord has driven a hard bargain with him to leave his crop; another, to pick goose berries in tho Hlite Kidge mountains; another, to practice mental healing, christian science, ostconathv or corn doctoring; an other, if a man doesn't have the walls of his kitchen chimney foot thick, etc., etc. If the thing keeps on we will have as many miade- . i . w a nieanor statutes as tney useu io have capital felonies iu England, aud that would be intolerable. Legislation against fools is contrary to the genius und spirit of our in stitutions, and the laws should uot dog a man's every footstep. Honey or Sympathy. Ciller's Weekly. Young Mr. Kockefeller has arous ed a great deal of derision by a snecch before what we may call, for lack of a Itetter description, a ret rich o nick Stludav school Class, by declaring his opposition to gin of money. Byuipatny, ssjs an. Rockefeller, is what people ueed, and be proposes to deliver any part of the deck-load of sympathy that he carries to any person in need of assistance. People have luugneu at young Mr. Rockefeller anu inej have matlo no mistake in laugning Itut soniethinirmiclitbc said In de fence of his scheme. It is right to thin eitenf. that nnor people do need sympathy. They need mon . too. contrary to Mr. Rockcfel ler's penerous theories, but the money without the sympathy does not go far. This 4s proved in the can of Andrew Carnegie, air, Carnegie has given away millons in pursuit of what, from superficial appearances, seems a plan of the How Mr. Carnegie Does It. Ciller'. Weekly. Now, the American people are not strangely lacking in the virtue ol gratitude. They have as much of that quality as any other people. They seldom fail to reward with their esteem a millionaire who give away his money freely even when self advertisement sticks out all over the gift. Whv is Mr. Car negie an exception' hy do hid princely gins annoy and irritate list We imagine the reason may lie found somewhere in yonng Mr. itocketeners self helpful maxim. There is no apearance of svmpa puthy, of pity, of affection, of heart in Mr. Carnegie's gifts. Thev come nut of his pocket, not out ol himself, lie has confessed to s luxurious indifference lo the needs of tlio poor ami unfortunate. His secretaries destroy the appeals ol the losers In tiie liattleof life. And that is the Haw that every one un consciously detects in his lienefae tions. They arc cold, methodical, statistical. They consist in a trans fer of certain millions of dollars, or certificates of stock or bonds from the bank account of Andrew Car negie to the bank account of the trustees of a library. No human pulse was ever made to beat faster by such an act of calculated nltru ism. No contact with suffering hu manity is required; no tears for the sorrowing; no comfort for the sf tlicU-il. The philnnthinist sits III home safeguarded from the throng ing woes of humanity and writes u check which enables a certain group of men to build a brow nslone building with the name of Andrew Carnegie on the cornerstone. The world may be the better fortius, but we cannot blame people who refrain from applauding a lieuefac tiou so chilly and remote. They are froneu by the nature of the gifts and offended by the patron!, ing manner of the giver. Money is not everything in this world. It is sometimes easier to give a dollar than to give a word of good cheer. Apparently it is impossible for some men to give both. Mr. Rocke feller's henefaction warm nolmdy's toes and Mr. Carnegie s lieuefac tions warm noliody's heart, lie tween the two spendthrifts Mr. Rockefeller pouring out his rich surplusage of sympathy, and Mr. urnCL'io Inundating small towns ith his money we might find the true rationale of a system of giving. As it Is we can hardly blame pen ile for more or less ridiculing tin one and resenting the other. Declared In a rU&s-Miting Last Thursday Night by Representa tive Citizens Call Issued for a County Organization County's Representatives Thanked for the Passage of the Law to Prevent Illegal 5ale of Whiskey and the Meaning of the Statute Ex plained. A larire mass meet ing of citizens of Monroe was held in the court not- ..i-i iimnuiav nmlit. under the auspices of the Auti Whiskey league, ami a war of externuna tion was fully, emphatically and finally declared upou the blind tigers of the town and county. These hard-skinned law-breakers were held up before the public gaze in their true light, and the people expressed a determination to have their scalps let it cost what it might iu hard work aud vigilant perseverance. The days of the blind tiger are utiuihercd, though be possess the usual niiuilier of lives claimed for animals of his kiud. The gathering was of those persons w ho mean w hat th,.y gay and will keep on meaning it. Mr. X. S. Ogluirn, president of the league, presided at the meeting, which was opened w ith a reaclinir of the Scripture and a praver by Key. . . Iloiievcutt. lr. II. 1. Stewart, one of the most active and earnest foes of the liquor traffic, was caned upon to explain the oh ject of the meeting. Iu part he said: IR. KI'KWAKT'H spkkch. Yon all are aware that we have some blind tigers. We have met ior me purpose .-i manning our representatives for civinn us a law hy which we cau break them up. We are proud of our representa tives und we have met to show hem that we expect to carry out the law. The fellows who want to sell liquor are denouncing this law. we have a list ol thirty-five blind tigers, twenty live pollers or car riers of liquor, mill ultoiit seventy- live of their customers. These cus tomers feel that they are obliged to have liquor and the tigeis furnish it to them. There are several kinds uf blind tigers, and they are all striking nt the foundations of soci ty. The difference Is-twecn the men who run these tlunas and those who steal is that you catch the latter easier.

A Thousand Bushel of Lettuce. Wllnlsabia Dlaialrh, lh. Today t!ie Southern KxpressCom nanv handled Its lirst solid veg etable train of the season out of Wilmineton. Theswcial consisted of five express cars and nearly one thousand baskets of lettuce were shipped from Wilmington alone, It was expected that between nere and (loldslMirothe tram would pick up over 1,000 more packages. 1 he principal points or sinpmcut were llaltiuiore. I'hiladelpnia and .ew York. Superintendent W illiams of the Southern Express Company told a reporter that the shipment from Wilminglou this morning was the largest ever made by his company for any one morning. Not only has the crop beeu a success, but the acreage is larger this season than ever befoie. That accounts for the increased shipments. The ex press company also handles vegetables on the Seaboard train leaving here at 4:: 10 p. m., putting them on the Northern markets the following day. This is an advantage to the growers, as they get off two ship menta daily. I at once ami you can try them for it. This traflic, legal nod illegal, is the grcatc-d evil on earth. Our liject is not to create sentiment, for we already have that, but it is to punish these persistent violators of the law. I here are people noii'h in this town w ho have seen iiml felt these evils lo put a stop to it with the help of this good law." WAYS' I'KX Hit s AM) HI IITI1.K Rev. Dr. A. M. Croxton spoke next, explaining the law. He said that the meeting wxs not a prohibi iou or temperance one, though perhaps nil present would like to uiiiige in one of that sort, nut it was to endorse tne act ion oi our representatives who gave us the law, which was made possible by the righteous actum of onr aider men in refusing to grunt license. This is a blind tiger law; let us call it so. We come to give the officers our co-operation in enforc imr the law. title there may be a variety of sentiment as to prohi that it almost enforces itelf. The day it was published many of the blind tigers weut out of business. and so we ratify this law which, if half earned out, will suppress the blind tigers. I nderthe old law there was great temptation to men to lie Is-fore the grand jury, and they did it. This does away with (hat by making the place of deliv ery the place of sale and the man w ho delivers it, no matter where he got it, is the seller. The law gives sufficient safety to good men. It has lieen said that persons may maliciously swear out warrant against some oue. This is not likely ever to be the case, and if it is the case would tie promptly dismissed as a malicious prosecution and the injured man could indict the pros ecutor for false arrest. There must In evidence that a mail is selling liquor, and this evidence must be sworn to Is-fore a si'arch warrant can liegiveu. Prima facie evidence is evidence that is sufficient to con vict unless it is rebutted, ami no mau w ho is uot i-elliug liquor would have any trouble iu showing that he was not. This law touches no man who docs not violate the law. We have the sympathy of th alder men and tho police, nud we want all good citizens to support them. The question just conies down to this: -Do you want ten or fifli-cn outlaws to hike your community by the throat !' A blue Iswik ha been made, and the man who doesn't want to go to the chain gang had Is'tter stop selling liquor. It must stop. We cannot stop it all tonight, lint just so sure as officers and other men cau do it, it w ill be stop ped. ' mii. iii.aki:m:y's kink kpkkcii. Mr. W. S. Rlakeuev, president of the Rank of 1'iiion, was the next penker, hiN subject being the ".Ne cessity of the supremacy of law and uder.

Mr. lilakeiiey has achieved promi nence nt the bar in South Carolina ami served four years iu the State fore"a MoiiYoe sTriie'iliV'tt'as'a''li'cS!i pleasant one. He said that while he hail no desire to thrust his views forward, he deemed it his duty to respond to the invitation of the committee, as no good citi zen ought to refuse to speak a word at any time for law nnd order.

We do not need to give al the reasons why Scott's Emulsion restores the strength and flesh and color of good health to those who suffer from sick blood. The fact that it is the best preparation of Cod Liver Oil, rich in nutrition, full of healthy stimulation is a suggestion as to why it does what it docs. Scott's Emulsion presents Cod Liver Oil at its best, fullest in strength, least in taste. Young women in thci teens M are permanently cured of the peculiar disease of the blood which shows itself in paleness, weakness and nervous ness, by regular treatment with Scott's Emulsion. It is a true blood food and is naturally adapted to the cure of the blood sickness from which so many young women suffer. pared a circular letter to all county superintendents asking for in for mat ion as to sentiment in their counties as to local taxatiou, rou solidation of school districts and improvement of school houses, the special pnrxie being to ascertain the best localities for coneeutrat iug agitatiou on these subjects to the best advantage.

But all lliii ia changed now. Voder the leadtrahip of a few thoughtful men ho have done battle ia aeaton and out in behalf if the free achoola, it may be aaid that we have at laat come upon the time that the State haa a definite and con structive ayatem for primary edura lion. The laat three tetiiona of the general aasenibly have giveu earnest effort to thia work and have finally succeeded in laying the miH ailla of a permanent primary system. The work of each of these sessions waa better lhao tl.e preceding one. Of the ses siun of 190 Governor Aycock says: The work of the session just closed baa been the best of any year in this espect. the policy ol securing al least a four months term in every school distiict haa beeu firmly and finally established.
