shining star on the Western hemisphere with her model form of government and marked degree of civilization Her light of gospel and intelligence shines upon the islands of the great Orient with equal brilliancy as that of Great Britain with her Stanleys andLlvlng 1900 when Manchuria China Russia Germany and nearly all of Orient together with the United States were bordering upon interna tional warefare the United States tervened with statesmanlike reconcil iations of peace and silenced the inter national difficulty In 1898 a cruel war had raged noto riously for some years between Cuba and adjacent islands and Spain Then and there again the United States manifested her power in war as well as she had shown her potent Influences in reconciliations o f peace and with such a man as McKinley at the head of the Nation and Dewey Schley Shatter Hobson and Theodore Roose velt to execute his commands the United States with these great He roes uplifted her hand in alliance to the suffering Cubans and after one hundred days conflict won Cubas dependence The effect of this war seem to unite the sympathies of the North and South When the news came flashing on the wires to the ears of the Ameri can citizens that on the 16th of Feb 1898 the U S Battleship Maine was blown up in Havana harbor with 268 of her citizens on board the sympathizing pain of irritation struck the heart of the father and son of the gray alike that of the father and son of the blue and together they walked side by side after the call of 126000 of volunteers by President McZiuley And now since this great event the motto EpluribusUnum could more fittingly be applied to the United Re publics of America The beginning of the 19th Century round these United States hopelessly in debt caused by a long and bloody war for liberty and freedom and with a weak constitutional government founded by Washington Adams Jef ferson Lee Hamilton and a number of other great statesmen But when Alexandria Hamilton was chosen Secretary of treasure under Washingtons administration the government took on a different face and has been wear ing it ever since with two exceptions It was said of that great financier by Daniel Webster that He smote the rock of National resources and abundant of revenue burst forth he touched the dead corpse of the public credit and it sprang upon its feet The dawning of the 20th Century finds the National treasure full hand ed with a surplus of about 8160000 00000 During the previous century Uncle Sam was continually borrowing money from Great Britain and issuing government interest bearing bonds The present century finds conditions reversed England is now looking to the United States for money loans and a few months ago a ship took sail from the harbor of San

professional buslnes and Miss Lettie went io by millinery and to see Ben Dur t TRIBUTE TO WOMAN No more beautiful tribute to woman nor one more aosolutely truthful can be paid her than this extract from a recent sermon delivered by Rev J Kinsey Smith of Louisville The modern demand is ideally just teat the man ought to be as good and as pure as the woman But considered apart from the standards of Ideal righteousness and as a morally econo mlc fact a womans honor is more or precious to the home and to society than that of a man A mans downfall Involves often only his own character and that of another but a womans downfall carries with it a far Wider series of disaster Not unjustly then has this superstition If It baa superstition been rooted In universal human opinion Nor will it ever be el wholly uprooted or It It is tit will be to the fatal detriment of human society The womanly woman moreover estimates this pearl of purity not for its prudential but for its essential to value This heavenly flame glows In her heart it is a quality of her blood it shines as a light upon her face it so distills as a fragrance from her presence it is the life and breath of her being There is a divine something in mere outward contact with an Instinctively modest woman which onmen like a spiritual tonic my They are made ashamed of their low thoughts and course sins by the very sacrament of her presence The influence of such a woman in the home and in society is as pervasive as light as purifying as goodness itself One such woman moving about her little world in the quiet beauty of character is worth more to the men women who compose that circle of than all the sermons that were ever preached or all the conventions for social purity that were ever held no POINTFD PARAGRAPHS Some men go to bed too late ever to wake up famoussThe chief end of man is the one with the head on A woman is as young as other women think she looks Some men owe more to their wives than they ever get paid A man is seldom as smart or as foolish as his vife thinks he is Strenuous pursuit of the Impossible begets activity minus the reward It is easier to get a modiste to scat a gown than it is to get her to cut the of may not make the man but that doesnt prevent the man from in trying to make money A third party may be all right in politics but when it comes to courtship its different The average woman can detect flattery every timeexcept of course when It is lavished upon herself GORDONS EAREWELL ADDRESS The following farewell address o Gen John B Gordon to his corps a the close of the war will be read with interest by every veteran of the Lost Cause who are so proud of the Comb manderin Chief of the Confederate Veteran Association and also by every rightminded citizen for the good

mall matter WED MARCH 25 1903- ANNOUNCESIENTS For State Treasurer are anthprired to announce H H BEN NINGER Wayne county a candidate for tho ice of State Treasurer ubjcet to the action of the Democratic partr Mr N B Hays of Pineville is a candidate for the Democratic nomination for Attorney General He is making an active canvas- and wherever he speaks he make- friends who will stand with him till the fight is over His speech in Greensburg last week was strong convincing the Democrats of that section that Mr Hays is the logical candidate measuring up to tho requirements of the of fice in every particular He is proving to the Democrats outside of the Eleventh district that the Eleventh has rights in common with other sections of the State and that no district in the State has truer supporters of party prin oiples and party uomijigej Jthan the Eleve91hthe cutoff of four or fiveaTstrictfl made so to make others safe We desire to say that Mr Hays is not missing the mark in his speeches He is calling at tention that the Eleventh is a part of the State that the 17000 Democrats within its borders are not whooping for the Democratic par ty for policy but for principle and that they are a part of the great brotherhood contending for the principles of a true Democracy without the fear of punishment or the hope of reward It is evident that the Eleventh is a potent fac tor in a State election for it has voted enough to save the State in auy close contest and yet the Democrats who have heretofore asked nominations from the party haveI been overthrown by the ambition and strength of stronger districts The time has come when the party should not measure a man wholely by his surroundings It is of worth to the party and to the Stat that every section should be repre sented and any policy adverse to this will inevitably lead to weak ness and not to strength The Eleventh does not seek to dictate it has never crowded its claims on the party hut we ask recognition We know Mr Hays We know him to be an able man and a true Democrat and as a matter of jus tice to the Democrats of this Dis- rict he should have the nomination In this section we are all for him No day has ever been too cold no fight too warm nor no precinct too remote for him to shun when called upon He is a gallant game able Democrat worthy the honor he seeks Dem ocrats remember your duty to a mountain man Henry E Thomas a Baltimore iegro and Elizabeth I Lundgren a comely white girl of Sweedish nntecedents were married in the First Ppresbytenan church Wash ington DO last Thursday by the

In this Chief Statistician Austin makes comparison between the record of January of the present year with that of the same month of the two preced ing years to show that judged from the standpoint of traffic operations the level of national prosperity manifests no tendency to recede The figures upon the live stock movement in the west show a total for cattle calves hogs and sheep slightly less than during 1902 and 1931 but this Is due to the marked falling off in the number of hogs transported there has been a continuous increase during the three years in the other Items Comparison of the wheat receipts at eight principal wheat ma kets for three seasons to the end of January shows that this year the receipts were considerably in excess of the two preceding seasons Trunk line shipments of all kinds of grain from Chicago for the first five weeks of the present year show a very decided increase over the corresponding periods while the provisions shipments from the same great center illustrate in a marked degree the same general upward trend in business Receipts of grain and flour at the Atlantic sea board are much in advance of those for January of last year the total fo the

and that is the arbitrary raising of the prices of the peoples necessities Since the beginning of the coal strike the price of oil has been advanced in all 3k cents per gallon an advance of nearly 50 percent The demand for oil has enormously Increased At this time owing to the scarcity of bard coal thousands of homes are using oil ex elusively for both heating and cooking purposes Is this advance
