J C Cook preached two splendid sermons In the morning the subject was Angels as Ministering Spirits Heb 1st 14 He advanced the idea that we were con stantly under the watchcare of our guardian angels who were swift pow erful and interested in the affairs men f and always ready to do Gods will and commands In v the evening he t preached to only a small congregation on the scripture How shall we escape if we neglect so great salvation He showed who were the truly repentant and that repentance is a condition of mans salvation hence the man who dies without it is lost And while re pentance and faith are mans acts yet it is only by the grace of God that he can repent and have faith in the Lord Jesus Christ Every man who repents is regenerate and every man is regenerated who repents No man can truly repent with out faith They cannot take place at once yet they are inseparable The brethren and sisters who were so unfortunate as to miss these two dis courses lost a perfect treat as they were deep and eloquent and showed a study and an insight into the scriptures that all the members of the church should hear and be benefitted by I wish to say to our brethren that we have a shepherd who is watching the flock and who will guide us into pastures green if we will be up and doing Br CHURCH TOLBE REMODELED Plans by Mr Wood Judd of Cane Valley for the remodeling of the M E Church of this city have been received carefully considered and adopted by the committee in charge As the plans show it will hardly bear any resem blance to present appearance and will be one of the neatest and most conven ient churches in town As we understand an addition 13 by 31 feet will be built on the East side and will be used for Sunday School classes The pulpit will be placed on the West side of the present building and modern circular seats placed in main as well as the addition Large sliding doors between the new and old structure puts the addition in close touch with the pulpit and directly in front of it The door to the present church will be supplanted by a large window of chipped glass and the en trance to the building will be through vestibule of addition The house will be heated by a furnace and when com plete will be one of the most comforta ble as well as the most modern and will seat 400 people This improvement has been under consideration for more than a year Quite a number favored the building of a brick church while others clung tena ciously to the present building but fa voring remodeling At any rate it is now settled and work will begin about the first of April The

simonious Folks Who Refuse Their Finan cial Supportthe Trials of the Country Teacher Airs His Views on the Rail road Question BY CORN CRACKER This is to inform all and sundry that your unregenerate scribe still hath a being at this place It is further reported that he teaches five days each week chops cord wood tilllate bedtime each nignt breaks mules on Saturday takes pictures and teaches a Sunday school class on Sun day At other intervals he plays the fiddle and half soles shoes Certain of the ribald are telling that in order to keep busy he should milk churn and build fires where he boards Verily the untutored look on the teacher as a hopelessly lazy mortal pro vided for with the remainder of the lame and the lazy But Cliffside has a large school and the nicest and best arranged building for the purpose in Ruthford county Today I was at Ruthford in a teach ers meeting I learned that on May 10 1907 that his Excellency Gov Glenn and Hon J Y Joyner are to meet the people at Ruthefordton and besides having memorial exercises and observance of old soldiers day the school children are to be present and an educational rally is to be pulled off l that will warm every educational mans heartWhile on the subject of Education it is surprising how little moral support a teacher gets in some communities My own experience has generally been sat isfactory but some timid girls have been shamefully treated I took occasion last summer or fall to call atten tion to how a coterie of capitalists em ployed two young ladies to teach and instructed them to ware em out if they didnt mind and then made the first and last appeal of despicable cow ards and busy bodies to the law because the unruly were punished While the State solicitor justly kicked it out of court not even allowing it to go before the grand jury it required no prophet nor yet the son of aprophet to foresee the demoralizing effect it had on dis cipline of schools Two young ladies in knowledge of writer have failed to govern schools and three in all have been asked to resign- A modest young lady shrinks from being hauled before some magistrate whose name should be necessity and then either pay a fine for doing her du ty or appeal and be cited to a higher tribunal before a morbid crowd andgSPingI In many counties of this Rutherf ordis of the number the teach ers of the publics are nearly all ladiesi Ilia community where people lightened young ladies are ideal in structors Nobody can get the goodwill of a little impressionable child like awinsome young lady But in a region y where they dont know the war is over and where some loud mouthed bully u I 5 the ideal citizen they need a prize fight er with a fist like a ham of meat a stroke like the piston rod of a mogu engine and a build like a burglarproo safe The only trouble is that a prizefighter would not consider the salar and is therefore not available Plenty of men in Rutherford and Cleveland counties would chreefully pay 10 to see Jeffries and Fitzsimmon swat each other that would raise a wai taxesithree more mills on the hundred dollar worth to enhance the cause of popula educationIn communication I adverted to fact that each child in the Common wealth of Kentucky has set apart for education an annual fund of 340 per capita Be it further known that it an inviolate fund for any other purpose Not a cent of it can be used for buying wood or building houses and yet fue is furnished and buildings are erected The houses are as well heated and the buildings are as well equipped as they are in North Carolina The State of sayIwere a house of worship and provide fuel for warming the congregation a righteous howl of indignation would be raised beIshrieker against taking the pittance set apart to pay teachers for any such pur poses He thinks that the building fund is better than what we had before its beneficent provisions Ihave known many districts to do witnout the money for one and sometimes two terms of school to build a house This was an outrage on children of school age in that graftino regard to light or ventilation at an outrageous cost Some man would get contract and build a hovel that didnt face the earth thesun moon nor sev starsThen in the name of sweet cavity he t would urnish wood In communities where wood was about all they had and could bo bought for 75 cents per load he would put down 90 cubic feet instead of 128 and charge two dollars a cord If any remonstrance was raised by teacher whom he was careful to see dayIfor 20 per pay him 8 for board he called for resignation of the biggity and ungracious wretch And if the ungrateful loafer suggested such an audacious idea as people voting a tax to supplement the school fund he wanted the ingrate to die without benefit of clergyIWhy is it that the fruits of the tariff never go into the school fund I am agin a high protective tariff anyway but if it is a necessary evil and promotes prosperity why does none of it find its way into the coffers of the poor devil who prepares the future ministers doctors lawyers statesmen and captains of industry The men of Ruther ford county except myself and a cripple or two have abandoned the calling of teaching free schools They saw that laying running at 35 per month laying brick at 52 to 75 per month manipulating jacksaw plane at 60 per month and just one man to cuss him beat teaching at 23 per month four months in the year and everybody cussing him Some of them are operating merrygorounds others yet we at the lucrative callings above me r tioned while others axe keeping store and respected by all I have beer teaching 29 years and not even an um brella laid up for a rainy day To compare members of the same family and how much they accumulate I have a brother who makes no claim to being well educated But he is one the best lumber inspectors in the lOf States and is paid 150 per month and all expenses He wears dia monds and tailormade raiment while I wear corduroy and use a wart for a collar button He rides in Pullman cars and I bump along in a smoker 01 in a caboose of a freight My only hope is when I become too infirm to teach that The Observer Yates Webb Bill Crawford and the Kitchin boys will see that I get a pension I dont expect anything very princely but certainly ought to have something If I did have a few millions Id certainly endow a home for superannuated teach ersThe army and navy retires its ser vants with good pay the North and South each have soldiers homes and the churches retire their superannuated ministers with fund to meet the chill penury of od age As I have never be en stingy with ad vice allow me to air my views on the railroad question It has been some time since I owned a road or even had a controlling interest in the shares of stock I tried to tell a railroad magnate once how to operate his road and he rung me off with the remark that his time was worth 60 per minute while mine was dear at fifty cents a week My opinion is that roads in North Car olina could carry firstclass passengers for 2 12 cents per mile and school teachers and other secondclass passen gers for 2 cents But I am further in clined to believe that railroads frequent ly have to pay exhorbitant damages When they broke my seventyfive cent corn sheller I felt that they ought to pay me 5000 for breakage and 10 000 for mental anguish But I had no money to put up as retaining fee and I have since bought a corn sheller at home The merchant from whom I bought it said he didnt know what in the devil I wanted with it that it re minded him of buying a pocketbook on time The crowd around seemed great amused but I saw nothing funny about it Speaking of railroads and cornshell ers naturally suggests cotton and the Southern Cotton Growers Association While some papers captains of in dustry mill men and a pack of blanked fools that know nothing and therefore talk more and talk louder than anybody else are inclined to wax merry at the granger I believe in the fight that Har vey Jordan and his lieutenants have put up Cotton is certainly king and rids the nations over to keep the peace To decry all rich men is arrant foolishness hut no reasonable man can object to farmers getting a good price for their labor and in products Since cotton has been from 10 to 11 cents farmers have bought more machinery for tilling the soil purchased better horses and mules and more of them built better and more elegant houses bought more books musical instruments sent more boys and girls to academies and colleges and taken more interest in popular education and good roads As a consequence mill men bankers merchants and in fact all have prospered If people have money they will spend it for the comforts and luxuries of life but when

the Columbia Postoffice as second class mail matter- c fWED1MARCH 13 1907 j r The Lower House of Congres f is now on record favoring a Ship 1 Subsidy but the Senate is yet unknown In our judgment more unfair measure nor a more open and direct attemp t at class legislation was never manifested and it is fortunate Ie for the country that the Senate was too slow to reach it No on ti believes that the Government ought to single out any specia industry or any certain class of jmen and grant special privileges in order to give a rapid growth and create enormous profits to the few engaged in it No Con i gressman would introduce i measure giving the farmers five 1cents per bushel for all the corn t marketed and no farmer would expect nor demand it yet the cShip Subsidy Bill meant to give to certain lines millions of dol t lars There is no necessity for such action and there is no jus tice connected with it The measure is rotten in principle discriminating and strictly class legislation It is a play into the hands of interests able to return political service when political emergencies arise Already the Government is having trouble with the tremendous corpora tions on land whose rapid build f ing and tremendous wealth have been acquired through ligislation and gifts from the Government c Millions of acres of valuable t lands in the West were given to corporations presumably as an inducement for developing that country by the building of rail roads The favored classes and interests on and have collected their millions through legal grants by National legislation and we cannot see any reasons why such a class or condition should be made on the waters The bill is not dead but just side tracked until the next meeting of Congress The adjournment of Congress last week brought some relief to the country but it shuts out a great deal from the city press It seems to be a difficult job for the Republicans find a can didate big enough for Governor who is willing to be offered f
