Youth' Com pun ion. M. Casimir-Perier, the new President of the French Republic, had shown himself, in his public career, very little covetous of official honors. More than once he had sought to avoid public employment ; but his character, his ability, his discretion and the modera tion of his opinions marked him out for the succession to M. Carnot in the emergency in which the late President's assassination left the republic. Rut the friends of several other men were pressing them for the great place, and were to forward their chances, making personal attacks upon M. Casi-mir-Ferier. He declared, therefore, when the chiefs of the various Repub lican groups waited upon him and asked him to accept the presidency at the hands of the National Assembly, that he was not a candidate, and could not accept the honor. He was pressed to change his deter mination but remained steadfast. The leaders of the parry did not know what to do. They were unable to unite upon any other man, and they believed that Ca.-imer-Eerier was emphatically the man for the emergency. In this case they did what perhaps none but Frenchmen, among the best of whom filial obedience is one of the strongest motives, woidd have done. They went to Casimir-Eerier 's mother, induced her to come in, and begged her to intercede with her son to change his determination. She listened patiently to their argu ments, and also to her son's objections. Then she turned to him and said : "History is in my mind, and inspir ed by my affection for you, I declare that your grandfather, if he were here, would tell you that, in the circumstan ces, it was your duty to stand and to accept the mission w hich may be con fided to you by the Congress." Then M. Casimir-Perier gave way, and was chosen to the presidency. One cannot but admire the spirit of the mother; for although the. presidency of France is a great honor, it involves at the present epoch ot dynamite bombs a great personal risk, which the new President deems it beneath his dignity to regard. To keep butter from sticking to the churn, the latter should be thoroughly scalded. SCOTLAND NECK, N. C, THURSDAY, AUGUST 30, 1894. IMPTJSITIZS IN FOOD. They are Not as Common as Many Persons Suppose. Selected. Singularly exaggerated ideas concern ing the adulteration of food are very generally held, according to Dr. II. W. Wiley, chemist of the United States department of agriculture. Sand, for instance, is not sold with sugar at least in the United States. The granulated 0xdc lump sugars in the market are almost absolutely pure powdered sugar sometimes, though rarely, contains a little flour or starch and low grade sugars are impure chief ly through the molasses and water they are made to absorb in manufacture. Xot as good a report can be given of syrups. There is very little of the pure maple syrup, most of what is sold as such being a mixture of glucose or cane syrups, with a small proportion of the product of the maple, while in an imitation actually protected by a pat ent the maple flavor is given by an ex tract of hickory bark. Liquid honey is largely adulterated with glucose. Of comb hoflfcy, however, only that in hot ties and jars is impure, the old impres sion that comb honey on the frame is adulterated having been pioved to be erroneous. Ground coffee is so largely adultera ted with chicory, peas, Ieans, etc., that it is rarely found pure, and even the unground berry is .imitated. Tea is rarely mixed with foreign leaves, but frequently has its weight increased by the addition of salts of iron and cop per materials quite prejudicial to health. Cocoa and chocolate are large ly adulterated with starch and sugar, and products claimed to be greatly im proved as to indigestibility may have little of the virtues of the original co coa bean left in them. A danger in canned goods is the use of adulterated tin, which may contain as high as 12 per cent, of lead, the or ganic salts formed by the corrosion of the lead being always poisonous. The common practice of coloring canned peas with copper is very objectionable. The use of preservatives, such as sali cylic acid, is not without risk, while an occasional source of danger is the development of nitrogenous bodies call ed ptomaines in preserved meats. The above are illustrations of the principle food adulterations, which, though bad enough, are insignificant in compari son with the startling reports that have been published. Much the greater part of foods we eat is pure and whole some. The Camphor Tree. Scientific A merican. While camphor was formerly pro duced in Sumatra, Borneo, and other parts of the East Indies, all now known to the trade comes from Japan and Formosa. The camphor tree is a large evergreen of symmetrical proportions, somewhat resembling a linden. It bears a white flower, which ripens into a red berry. Some oi the trees are fifteen feet in diameter and live to a great age. A group of trees in the province of Toosa, about a century old, are esti mated to be equivalent to about forty thousand pounds of crude camphor. The camphor is extracted from chips taken from the roots or from the stem near the root, the wood yielding about o ier cent, of camphor, and the root a larger proportion. The annual export of Japan camphor averages about 5,000,000 pounds. The forests in Japan owned by the people are now almost denuded of timber, but the government still possessess large woods of camphor trees, which, it is estimated, will main tain a full average supply of the gum for the next twenty-five years. Plan tations of young trees are also making and are well taken care of, and, although camphor has not hitherto been extract ed from trees less than seventy or eighty years old, it is expected that under the present intelligent management equally good results may be realized in twenty five or thirty years. The Japanese Department of Forests, which has the control of these woods, is under good management. 'EXCELSIOR" IS OUR MOTTO. Mr. Eixcn Calls Bsth. Hill and Cleve land 'Teannt Pcfiticians." Netr York Herald. The Rev. Thomas DLron, in the pre lude to his sermon yesterday at Ajso- ciation Hall, Twenty-third street and Fourth avenue, took occasion to crit cise the United States Senate in un measured tones. After briefly sketch ing its origin he said : "It is an evil to-day, m that its uj?e fulnesa has ceased, and it has deterio rated from the high but aristocratic plane upon which it was built to a tool that is used by selfish and unscrupu lous politicians for corrupt purposes The class of men chosen are in many ways unqualified to hold so high an office. Wealth and strong political faith in machine politics constitute the elements necessary to gain admiasion nowadays to that high and edited bod'. "The Senate has indulged in a great deal of peanut politics of late," contin ued Dr. Dixon, -'to the utter disregard of the most important interests ot the country at large, which alone has suf fered from the obstructionist policy lately resorted to. "Hill and Cleveland are the lest examples of peanut politicians, for while the country at large is in the throes of commercial bankruptcy they haggle and dispute over trivial collateral issues. "It is the prerogative ot the Senate to obstruct only such legislation as will work irreparable injustice or injury to the country, but it is the duty of that body to relieve all crises by prompt and immediate action that will relieve the situation until such time as letter measures may be passed. "The sugar scandal is proof positive that Senators are not beneath degrading themselves for their own political and pecuniary ends. They are not beneath utilizing the secrets of the committee room for their pecuniary good." Mr. Dixon closed by saying that until the Senate was elected by the people so ong would the corruptions of its mem bers be the rule, not the exception. Meat Eating and Temper. Scientific American. Airs. Ernest Hart, who accompanied ier husband in his recent trip around the world, apjears to come to the con clusion that meat eating is bad for the temper. In the Hospital she says that in no country is home rendered so un- lappy and life made so miserable by the ill-temper of those who are obliged to live together as in England. If we compare domestic life and manners in England with those of other countries where meat does not form such an in tegral of diet, a notable improvement will be remarked. In less meat-eating France, urbanity is the rule of the home ; in fish and rice-eating Japan, harsh words are unknown, and an ex quisite politeness to one another pre vails even among the children who play together in the streets. In Japan I never heard rude, angry words spo ken by any but Englishmen. I am strongly of opinion that the ill-temper of the English is caused in a great measure by a too abundant meat dieta ry, combined with a sedentary life. The half-oxodized products of albumen circulating in the blood produce both mental and moral disturbances. The healthful thing to do is to lead an ac tive and unselfish life, on a moderate diet, sufficient to maintain strength and not increase weight. LucX. I never had any faith in luck at all, except that I elieve good luck will carry a man oyer a ditch if he jumps well, and will put a bit of bacon into his pot if he looks after his garden and keeps a pig. Luck generally comes to those who look after it, and my notion is, once in a life time, it knocks at ev erybody's door, but if industry does not open it, a way it goes. Selected. Paper Hcrse-shses. Faper horseshoes, w hich were intro duced into the cavalry service of the German army a few years ago, have proven very satisfactory, their light ness and elasticity enabling the horses to travel faster and farther without fatigue than w hen shod in the ordinary wav.

The North Carolina farmer has leen practicing economy dunng the hard times ; he is -not a heavily in bebt a heretofore, and the close of the crop season finds him in comparatively easy circumstances, with the promise of well-filled barns and the prospect of independence in the coining year. The majority of the men who till the soil laid their plans well at the lgi li ning of the season ; they planted more corn ; they gave more attention to stock raising ; they lived hard and worked hard ; they saved where once they had squandered, and it goes without saying that they will reap a rich reward from their honest toil and self-sacrifice. X'ot so much money is going out of their pockets, now, to the Xorth and West for articles that they can produce at home ; they are cutting down e.xjien. ses ; theyr are economizing in little tilings utilizing their timler and their soil for all they are worth. At last they have struck the keynote to the situation ; they are following the right lines, and what is benefitting them is adding, also, to the welfare ol the State. They are alive to their individual interests, and the' are mak ing a record which is worthy ot wi:le emulation. As the farmers prosper, the State prospers ; w hat afTects them is felt by all. Let them continue as they have begun, and they w ill do good to themselves and good to Xorth Caro lina. To Settle in North Carolina. Norfolk Virginian. A dispatch to the Xew York Kvcnimj Post from Raleigh, X. C, says that a great influx of Westerners is looked for in Xorth Carolina during the next three months. It says that II. II. Stoddard, of Kearney, Neb., has just arrived at Raleigh as the advance agent of a large colony of Xebraskans w ho intend coming in the fall, most of w hom will follow the dairy business. The.se Ieople'say it is too cold out there, and that they have become satisfied that they can do better in the South. George K. Sherwood, of Kearney, Neb., writes to the Xorth Carolina Commissioner of Agriculture: "You have no idea of the number of farmers in this section who have decided to go South. We have had a failure of crops out here for three years in succession, and the failure this year is complete. If our Western farmers could buy some of your Southern farms on easy pay ments, you would be surprised at the large number that, would go." Xorth Carolina, like Virginia, is an inviting field to all classes of settlers who want to letter their condition. Land is plentiful, the soil fertile, cli mate good and the hospitality and con servatism of the people unquestioned. Cheennlness. Durham, Sun. Don't sit in the corner and moje be cause things are not going ju.-t as you would like. A disagreeable face will not alter a disagreeable fact. Try to extract some grain of comfort out of your adversities. Xever despair. Un der whatever circumstance- le cheer ful and hoje on. There is nothing so philosophical as a smile. A merry heart the height of wisdom. The greater part of our griefs will disappear when viewed through the lenses of cheerfulness. Let the dark past sink out of sight. Look toward the sunrise. Shout with merriment as f you saw the dawn kissing the hills. Fill your souls with the visions of morning and the song of the lark. Then all will become suffused with daylight all the gloomy places will pulse with sunshine, the clammy rocks will glisten with dew. Would you like to know the key to unlock the doorway to a happy life? It is cheerfulness. SUBSCRIPTION PRICK Si.oo. NO. 30. 2 . Trv;T t?.w, 'of horMV.

The most ghastly deathlnxJs on earth are the one where a man dies of delir ium tremens, and the other where a woman dies after having sacrificed all her faculties of body, mind and soul in the worship of fashion. My friends, we must appear in judgment to answer for what we have worn on our Ixtdies as well as for what repentances we haw exercised with our souls. On that dav I see coming in Beau Rrummel of the last century, without his cloak, like which all England got a cloak, and without his cane, like which all En gland got a cane; without his snuA box, like which all England got a snuff box. He, the fop of the ages, particu lar about everything but his moral, and Aaron Rurr, without the letter that down to olu age he showed in pride to prove his early wicked gallan tries, and Absolom without his hair, and Marchioness J'ompadotir without her titles, and Mrs. Arnold, the 1-elle of Wall street when that was the center of fashion, without her fripferics of w-t-ure. A nl in great haggardne they shall go away intoeternal expatriation, while among the queens of heavenly society will e found Ya.-hti, who wore the modo-t veil lofore the palatial baccha nalians, and Hannah, who annually made a little coat for Samuel at the temple, and Grandmother Loi.-, th ancestress of Timothy, who imitated her virtue, and Mary, who gaw .le-u-Chri.-t to the world, and many of you. the wivos jiiid mothers and -i-!erj and (laughters of the present Christian church, who. through great tribulation, are entering into the kingdom of Cod.
