Snow was general in Montana to-day. slight flurries being reported from all over the State. The fall was heavy on the continental divide. The temperature has dropped to 45. Snow alternates with cold rains and great damage to crops is feared." Jury trials are discussed in North in the history of the State, perhaps. Sard to Bang. turns to the subject of jury trials, and the discussion is general. It does seem that it has come to be a hard matter to hang a person in North Caro lina. There have been some noted trials in which the accused have been regarded by the public as being worthy of death, but it is seldom that there is a hanging in the State. The reputation of the State seems to be suffer ing somewhat by reason of the many homicides, and thete seems also to be a general feeling that there is a little too much leniency towards those who commit such crimes. All's the pity that 'tis so. - Judge Parker, of New York, has been down to Atlanta to attend a ban quet, and the Charlotte Observer speaks of the occasion and Judge Parker as follows : banquet in Is Ee a Possibility ? State Bar Association, of Chief Justice Alton B. Parker, of New York, may be said to mark the launching of the boom of that gentleman for the Dem ocratic presidential nomination. Judge Parker is undoubtedly a nice man and a good' Democrat, and he carried his State, when he was elected Chief Justice of the Supreme Court, by a great majority. Whether he can do as much as a presidential candidate is another question a man may be able to carry his State or county for one office and not for another. It would be well to wait and see if the New York Democrats think he is the strong est candidate, and. not be too precipitate in the matter of committals, for it ii certain that the Democratic parjy must bare New York if it is to elect yiJlep1&i say that by reason of his lack of familiarity with active politics it would be injudicious to nominate him for President, then it would be in order to drop him out of the calculation ; if they say he can carry his State, be becomes a proper subject for consideration. But as yet they have said neither, and well, there is plenty of time." There has been no general State law enacted in North Carolina in a long time that has been watched with more interest than the Watts liquor Watts Law Effective. sitting of the Legislature and much hard work was done all over the State to have some good temperance law passed. The Watts law gaye fairly good satisfaction to the temperance people and it went into effect July 1st. It has gone out from Raleigh .that the liquor people are showing no dispo sition to disregard the law. Many distilleries that have been operated in the country will move to town. Attorney General Gilmer is reported as saying that the Watts law is effective in every way and seems to think that it is satisfactory. There has been one effort, it seems, by the liquor peo ple to evade the Watts law, which is given in the following item from Wil mington to the Charlotte Observer July 2nd : "Two licenses were granted yesterday to retail liquor dealers at Wrigbtsville Sound. The place is not incorporated and the applications were held. up for some time-under the provisions of the Watts act passed by the last Legislature. Wrightsville is a summer resort and resort hotels are exempt In the act, therefore the bars applying for renewal of licenses had to build extra rooms for the accommo dation of guests so they would come under the hotel exemption. The best legal talent was called in by the board of commissioners before granting the licenses even with the addition of the rooms." Strikes affect labor, labor affects money circulation, and money circula tion affects the comforts and wants of the people. There have been some Strikes and Labor. tain way gives expression to the conviction that strikes are not promotive of prosperity, but are the rather a hindrance to it. The Journal says on the subject : "A marked improvement in thejabor situation has taken place within the last month. Several large strikes have been settled and a number that were threatened have never materialised. Outside of the Philadelphia textile workers and the street railroad employes at Richmond, there are no strikes just at present which are worthy of any grave consider ation. The railroad employes are nearly all at work, and the iron and steel industries, together with the tin-plate mills, are moving along as usual. The National Civic Federation Review concludes that the labor situation has improved 75 per cent, during the past month. This journal regards matters in very hopeful light, from an industrial standpaint. It sees noth ing in the way now of a speedy; termination of the builders' strike and con siders the probability of a complete settlement of labor-difficulties for a time at least, as most encouraging. It is prophetic of continued prosperi ty that these strikes and lockouts aie on the wane. Prosperous times must soon come to an end if thousands upon thousands of workers remain idle I for months with Increasing numbers withdrawn from the great wheels of: industry. Now -.that the men are going back to work, the only cerious cloud on the commercial horison is fast dissolving." . PASSING EVENTS. Montana. But such was the case, according to the following item which appeared in the press Carolina now more than ever before There have been so many homicides in the State during the past year or two and so few people have been hanged, the public mind "The appearance in Georgia, at a Atlanta and in an address before the law.

She prayed for him every day, and often a dozen times a day. Finally he was arrested as an accom plice in a burglary and sent to prison for two years. She did not give up then, but visited him often in prison, always finding him hard, sullen and defiant. ' t After his release from prison he dis appeared and no one knew where he went. Years passed and the teacher mar ried and went far from her native town to live. She had grown children of her own when she and her husband went to the Pacifiic slope to visit rela tives and friends. They found the town or city in which one of their friends lived greatly agitated over the the liquor question. "We are trying to elect a 'no license' mayor," said the gentleman they were visiting. "He is coming to dinner to night, and I'll be glad to have you meet him." When he came she saw a tall, fine looking man whom she would have said at once she had never met before. "Whv," he said, as he grasped her band, "are you now Miss M T" "I was Miss M ," she replied. "And you lived in Boston?" "Yes, I did." "And taught a class in a Sabbath school called the West End Mission?" "And there was a bad boy in tha t class named Roger Martin." "There was a boy of that name in the class. I have never forgotten him." "And yet you don't know him when he stands before you, for I am the same Roger Martin. "I tried to forget you and all your teachings, I tried to forget God I liyed a wicked life for fifteen years after I left my home, but in all those years of sinfulness I could not forget your lov ing patience nor some of the things you had said to me. I feel that I owe my final conversion and acceptance of God to you. I wrote and told you so when 1 was converted, but the letter came back to me through the dead let ter office. I wanted you to know that, through many days and years, God bed answered your prayers for me and that none of your efforts In my behalf weiv lost." Show Sim Tour Hands, Mother. Selected. 1 read a story the other day of a dying mother who felt her time hd come and she moaned of her life so full ofcare, so weary with struggles, and as she laid her hands on the head of a daughter, she said with touching pathos: "I haye nothing to show ft r it. : I have toiled and toiled and have done so little, my child. How can I meet the Master?" , The weeping girl clasped the tremb ling, dying band -to her bosom, and cried out in an agony of grief : "Show the Master your hands, mother !" Oh, those weary hands! What a lesson do they teach those whose live are sheltered and whose way is made easy for them ! - What profound respect J feel for the worn hands of the aged pilgrim whoso feet never faltered in the path of dnty and self-sacrifice and whose hands nev er shirked toil when the family expect ed it and whose tender heart, held pity and patience for the Wayward and the thoughtless to the very end.

Dorothea Dix was the founder of our present humane system of treating the insane. She came from a bumble home, and began to support herself when a child of twelve. At fourteen she was teaching school. While still in her girlhood she began her life ot philanthropy, opening in a barn a school for outcast children, at nineteen years of age. When forty-one -she be- gan her lite-work for the Insane poor. ? At that time, unless wealty, the insane were wretchedly treated. But Dorothea Dix, frail, alone in the world, often so ill that her life was de spaired of, conquered prejudice, won friends for her cause, and at last estab lished in twenty States publio hospitals and asylums for the insane, and saved from misery millions of people. When the Civil War broke out she became superintendent of women nurses. In the four years of her ser vice she would not take one day's fur lough, and moreover refused any gift from the nation except a flag of her country. At sixty-five she resumed her asylum work, in which she remain ed till she was eighty-eight. "The invincible powsr of a might purpose" made her a grand, inspiring example. "Her life was an epic ; cen turies hence it will find its Homer." The mural tablet in the Hall ct Fame can only record her fame. Her great, loying "soul is marching on," forever. Bnforca the Law. Knoxrille Journal and Tribune. The only safety to a State or com munity lies in a just and fearless en forcement of law. Give criminals an inch and they will take a foot. Per mit a minor law to be violated and it will lead to the violation of greater ones. Wink at the law against fgamb I ing, and in will encourage the crimi nally disponed to do something worse ; close the eyes to the elicit Sunday sa loon and those who may meditate lar ceny may 'conclude that the officials are indifferent generally. Steal an election and men conclude that the may steal other things, without com mitting a greater crime. Stick to the law. Enforce it and punish offenders without regard to their wealth or social position. Render law-breaking un popular and lawbreakers of every sort infamous. When this is done, there will be no such demonstrations as v. have witnessed in Breathitt county, and no more violations that bring ter ror to communities and disggrace to States and cities.

Busy people in hot weather frequently find themselves faint and thirsty, scarcely knowing what to eat and drink. It may be they have already drunk cold water freely, but it fails to satisfy. They will perhaps resort to a glass of beer and a sandwich, blindly stumbling around trying to find something to fill in the long space between meals. Now, what these people want is a glass of buttermilk. 'This answers the purpose of both food and drink. Peo ple who have had breakfast at 7 o'clock during the hot weather, will find them selves more or less hungry by 10 :-i0 Instead of taking a lunch, or getting a glass of beer, the very best thing in the world is a glass of buttermilk. The acid of the buttermilk quencher the thirst. The nutritive properties ol the buttermilk make a first-class lunch. If nothing is taken with the butter milk It will agree with almost any atomacb, and as it contains all of the tissue salts it makes, almost an Ideal food. Those who take dinner at 1 o'clock will find tbemselyes wanting something again by 4 or 1 :30. faeio is another chance for a glase of butter milk. Nervous people, thin-blooded people, people who have dyspepsia, had better give buttermilk a trial. Not too much should be drunk at any one time, not more than one glass. It should be at least two hours and a half after eat ing before the buttermilk is taken, and no other food should be taken for about the same length of time. Those who prefer can add a teaspoonful of sugar to the glass of buttermilk. As a tonic and nutritive there is nothing better in the world. v Colored 2aa Who Has Wealth. Greensboro Record.

We never feel sorry for the boy who has to work, even if it be to help make a living for himself and family ; bat we do pity the boy who has nothing to do, and whose parents are able to keep him from haying to labor. The boy who may work and get only a stttend of a dollar or even less per week, is learning a trade, and, what is more, is learning habits of industry. It is often the boys who begin early in the life of industry that como the successful men of the nation. The boy who waits until he is grown, or until he acquires an education, before be begins to labor or learn a profession, is apt to sart in life handicapped and outstripped by b's seemingly less fortunate competitor who started in ahead of him. If pays a boy better in the long run to work for twenty-fiye cents a week and learn a trade, with habits of application to business, than to do nothing and be supported at the expense ol his parents.
