We offer a complete line Then trJ’ VICTOR, MEEKINS MAN’S WASTE OF TIME IN PURSUITS VAIN Mankind lives in an endless race to keep ahead of the Jones’. The human race craves things it doesn’t need, more than the things it needs. We are now concerned about get ting to the moon ahead of any other nation. We are behaving as if we believed there is not enough of everything here on earth for us. Imagine other vain pursuits of mankind. We read where much con cern is expressed over a project in Beaufort where some would-be scientist is studying the love life of the fiddler crab. With infinite patience and electronic recordings, attempts are made to capture the mating calls of the creature. Great store is placed upon saving, for God knows what, the tinny, rasping noises made by the crab’s claws. Who knows whether the crab is singing a love song or merely growling for lunch. We always thought the old “he-crab” ran down and raped the lady-crab while she was in the moulting stage and soft and helpless. As a small boy, we always enjoyed the dividend when on our rambles with dip-net along the shore, we would catch a big old “channeler” and his “wife,” as they were called. It is no small wonder that adult persons cannot find something more useful and helpful to do, than to capture sounds made by crabs. The world is full of people who go to great lengths to avoid work. Last week there died in New Bern a Gypsy Queen who was a full blooded Cherokee Indian, bom in Oklahoma. She married into the useless Romany tribe and mothered 15 offspring. She became the queen. From distant places a throng assembled for her funeral. There was much feasting, and ser vices were held by the Catholics for her soul. Like the recordings of the raspings of the sand-fiddler, we never could figure out the value of the Gypsy tribe. It may be, of course, as the poet says: “they al so serve who only stand and wait.” Over in Greenville, a fifth day dragged on, and a court was unable to find 12 men with sufficient back bone to face their duty, and serve on a murder trial which could have been followed by the death penalty. Here in a county of 70,000 people, by one excuse or another, they evaded jury duty and the exercise of stamina and courage required to pass upon the guilt or innocence of a man charged with a grave offense. Finally, they had to send to another county for a jury. If it becomes necessary to hang a man, he should be hung, and any citizen worthy of living in this blessed America bought for us with blood and toil, and resolution and courage, should face his duty and serve where needed. If this country ever falls, it will be due to the loss of spine and devotion within it self. Big money everywhere. Daily the papers report that fortunes have been left by old people who by a lifetime of penny-pinching and money grabbing have become mil lionaires. Persons already rich as well as relatives who never had a square meal in all their lives are sometimes left with fortunes to be come the prey of sharks and schemers who are skilled in the wiles of outwitting the witless. We see this week where one former North Carolina woman almost 90 left two and a half millions ... In Pittsburgh, a 46-year-old woman with two years to live has been left a two million dollar estate in Scotland. She is dying of cancer, and is unconcerned because she has always had money, all her life, she says. Pity it couldn’t have been left to some worthy cause whereby as a living endowment, it could have continued through the ages to do good. The Lost Colony may now be winding up its last season. It was said early in thd year, the show couldn’t open unless $15,000 was raised. A movement was started to raise the $15,000 as most people considered it would be better to give away the $15,000 than to lose the show, even for one season. The movement got off the track, got lost in a rattle-brain scheme to raise a half million, and was soon forgotten. Barely more than $7,000 was raised, some of the pledges haven’t been paid, but the show has been run -on tick. It has had no promotion, nor show business ex perience behind it, isn't advertised beyond the local area, and has had attendance no more profitable than last year. Unfortunate indeed; for most all who see it say it is the best show in many years, due to some improvement in cast, in script and in direction. It would be a ca lamity indeed to let the Lost Colony die. It would be a damning THE COASTLAND TIMES, MANTEO, N. C. SALVO PERSONALS Zion B.

Burtis Hooper, who is employed in Hertford, spent the week end with his family. reflection upon the leadership of this locality. It would be a black mark pointing to the greed of our home folks, so many of whom say no one else should be allowed to run the show. But we should adopt this course: “What does it matter who runs the show, or who are its actors, so long as it creates for us and the state, the benefits material, moral and spiritual which its foun ders envisioned in its beginning?” Labor Day Week End Red Hot Saving Specials GENERAL SUPPLY CO.
