Address all communications to THE BURKE COUNTY NEWS, MORG ANTON, N. C. FRIDAY, FEB. 23, 1900. THINGS SAID BY ME. BRYAN. "The Republican party begins to form society at the wrong end. Building a house on their principle you would build the roof first and hang the house to it. It is a false principle, but the Republicans go on it, thinking that they can legis late for the well-to-do, and that their prosperity will leak through on the man below. There can be no permanent prosperity where the poorer classes are ignored. When you legislate so as to give the poor man prosperity then you legislate to make all classes prosperous." "I wouldn't place one Amer ican boy on the block and sell him for the trade of the world. Let the men who want to pur chase trade with blood go out and purchase it with their own blood." "The Republicans have amended the commandments to read: Thou shalt not steal on a small scale. ' We can punish petty larceny, but we find it difficult to punish grand lar ceny," "I believe as present condi tions are the young man doesn't have the chance in this conn try that he ought to have or that he once had. The oppor tunities open for young men now are too narrow. I want them to have something better to look forward to than to being clerks of trusts or of corpora tion attorneys. I want it to be in the future as it was in the past that when a child is born into the world he will have something to live for- that he can be free and think free and act free." "In an hourof peril thisgov eminent can take the son f ron his mother, no matter how much the mother needs him; in an hourof peril this govei u ment can take the hnsbam from his wife; in an hourof peril this government can take the father from the children; m an hour of peril the father the son or the husband can be made to stand up in, front of the enemy's gun; but in an honr of peril this government could not lay its hand upon the property of the rich and make them bear their share of the burden." A Mystery of the Sea. A mystery with which every sailor is familiar is the forma tion of dust at sea. Those who are familiar with sailing ships know that no matter how care fully the decks may be washed down in the morning and how little work of any kind may be done during the day, neverthe less if the decks are swept at nightfall an enormous quantity of dust will be collected.

Its Coming is Looked Forward to With Both Joy and Fear and its Safe Arrival is Hailed With Pride and Delight by AIL Pay Up and Start Anew. The arrival of the first baby in the household is the happiest and most im portant event of married life. The young wife who is to become a mother delights to think of the happiness in store for her when the little one shall nestle upon her breast and latterly she shall hear it lisp the sweet and holy name, "mother." But her happy anticipation quickly van ishes when she realizes the terrible pain and suffering through which she must pass while bringing the little one into the world. An indescribable fear of the danger attendant upon the ordeal soon dissipates her joyfulness. Thousands of women have learned by experience that there is absolutely no necessity for the sufferings which at tend child-birth; they know that by the use of "Mother's Friend" a scien tific liniment for a few weeks before the trying hour, expectant mothers can so prepare themselves for the final hour that the pain and suffering of the dreaded event are entirely obviated and it is safely passed through with com paratively little discomfort. All women are interested, and es pecially expectant mothers who for the first time have to undergo this trial, in such a remedy ; for they know the pain and suffering, to say nothing of the dan ger, which is in store for them. "Moth er's Friend is woman's greatest bles sing, for it takes her safely through the severest ordeal of her life. Every woman should be glad to read the little book "Before Baby is Born," which contains information of great value to all. It will be sent free to any one who sends their address to The Brad field Regu lator Co., Atlanta, Ga. WAXTED.-To men to sell and collect. Small bond required. Will pay a commission and salarv.

Eight months ago we started anew in business at Morganton, at the bottom of the ladder, and it seemed that some of the biff fish would swallow us whether or not; but we managed to keep our head above water and are slowly coming to the front, and we account for it from the fact that we give full IG ounces for a pound, don't sand our sugar or water our kerosene, nor talc our flour; besides we have hundreds of frends in this county, all things being equal, who come to see us when they are in need of anything in our line.
