yule a useful and pretty lesson is to be learned It is sad indeed to profit by others exporie c3 and especially in death but lessons are daily taught in thus manner when all other efforts fail John Bibb was au engineer and it means a whole lot to bo an engineer Bibbs was killed in a wreck Saturday at Lenoir while at IJQilwas found pinioned ieneatlrtlic twisted iron of the locomotive hiving remained faithfully to bis post 1t was impossi ble to extricate the dying man Just before he gasped his last a physician thinking ho would relieve his Buffering offered him some brandy ifo h Intro never touched it yet and caVt begin to drink it at this stagobfthd game said the dying engineer as ho made a feeble attempt te wave aside the ox tended flask of liquor I am dying he continued weakly So go and look after the women ana ohildron IP the coaches Saying which Engineer Bibb died having fulfilled ft promise which ho made to himself ninny years ago that he would never touch u drop of intoxicating liquor as long as he lived Ho had often remarked too that ho might die at his post of daty but that if such was his fate it would not be because of any blunder duo to a befuddled brain Howl much better the world would bo and now happy all homes jvonld be il all men would bo as true to promises as was Bibb Engineers as a rule arc the bravest of men but few people realize what it means to be an engineer These men who wear thftr tins out at tho throttle are naturally brave They measure duty above all things oftimes they havobeeu roasted scalded and torn to pieces be cause of a desire to save the lives that have been instructed in their care Heroism caut be bought It comes from the heart It is a gift and not one in a thousand appreciate the real worth of an engineer They should receive kind words from everyone Not The Negros friend A llarge portion of the negroes not all haye been led to believe that Teddy Hoosevclt was their friend buTiliis isi not the case and the darkies will sooty find that instead of their friend he is their worst enemy Already they are beginning to suffer as a result of this belief And their actions since tho champion has favored them A negro entered a plantation store near Clarksdale Miss brandishing a dagger and threatening the life of al young white man who was behind the counter I have got Roosevelt behind me screamed the negro with an oath Yon white people cant bother me Ho was orderod to leave tho store but ho became more enraged and made a llunge for the young man with dagger Whereupon ho was fired upon and killedRoosevelt is alone responsible for this negroes death This is only a forerun net of the many similar acts that will bo attempted by the colored race which Teddy has seen fit to urge on and like this all will result in the death of the negro The negroes of the south have been taught that their position is in ferior and they will never be recognized by the white people as socially equal andall Teddy does will oulcauso trouble for the negro and they all should recognize this fact and control themselves accordingly and prevent trouble As long as the negroes keep in their places they will always receive f fair treatment by tho Southern people Parkertrt The Parker movement is assuming i considerable proportions News from New York has given it fresh and sig nificant impetus It comes in

well known farmerU We1 used to take a lot of pains our selves about shellingfevery kernel from both the butt and the tip of the seed ear but lately we have planted everything that grew on the ear and have had as good luck in getting a stand and good crop following us we ever had We cannot see that it makes an atoms difference with the regular dropping of tle plan ter with the variety of corn we LllOW raise although we have raised varieties that grew the 1 kernels at each end of the ear altogether out of shape for even dropping in the planter the tip arid the kernels being too small and those at the qther end too large When tlmI grams are such as to not hinder the even drop ping of the planter we tall see t nothing that is gained by going r4 to the trouble of shelling oil the end grains Others howevert do not agree with us hero but i tire know there is a great diiler- encet in the varieties of corn Whether hatchinga in an incu bator or under hens the eggs examineda1 on tliI= fifth or
