It is a fact that almost eveiy- body has a pet remedy for almost every disease ot ailment of man or beast. Let a man get some thing the matter with him, and about every (ellow he meets is ready to further afflict him with some old forgy remedy. If all these old lofty remedies were printed, they would fill the aver' age Carnegie library chock full But when a man is bad sick or is suffering from severe pain, he is usually ready to jump at any old remedy that is offered him with the promise of relief. Not only so with reference to himself, but if he has atsick cow or horse, he will do as much in behalf of the sick animal. Mr. M. M. Tillman, of this place, who farms in Van Wyck section, would doubtless bear out the above statements. A few days ago he had a very sick cow on his farm and was naturally very anxious to do something for it, so much so that he was perfec-ly willing to try any prescription that might be offered. First he was advised to lead the sick cow into a horse stable, turn it around and lead it out again. This did the cow no good. Next he was told to give it a bundle of stolen fodder. He at once dispatched a negro to steal the fodder and give it to the cow, but no improvement wjs noticeable. He was then inductd to go down on the creek and pather an armload of green leaves from a certain tree and give them to the poor, suffering animal. It minced at a I few of them and grew worse. This was all very disheartening, but a Tillman never gave up. Our friends continued to inquire of every passer-by what was good for a sick cow. Some advised bleeding, others cunjuring. Salt was good, other things were better. Anything, everything was done to relieve, the cew's great suffering ere death should claim it as a victim. Nothing did any good, ! and hope began to die a direful, J sickening death. ' At the last moment, just as the j cow was about to totter and fall! dead, some one arriving on the' scene jusst in time to save the' day and the cow, too, suggested 1 that if the cow could be induced to eat some schorched leather all ; would be well. Like a drowning! man grabbing at straws, Mr. Tillman hastily raked up some old' worn-out shoes, kindled a fire and roasted them to a crisp. The cow, ' like an intelligent and obedient patient, ate one or two of the old shoe-soles. In a few minutes it walked out upon a green lawn and began to eat grass with a ravenous appetite. All was over and well. And this storv is vouched for bv a Presbyterian elder. At least he vouches for the fact that Mr. Tillman told it to him. She Couldn't Lend Either. Philadelphia I.eilirer. Hetty Green of New York had a way of taking care of her own, even in her youth. A Vermont neighbor tells that while she was living on her. New England farm she had for a neighbor a particularly unneighborly old bachelor One day while the threshers were at work on her wheat crop, the winnowing-fan broke and she sent over in great baste to borrow ber neighbor's machine. . "Certainly, was the reply, "Mrs. Green may use the fan, but I make it a rule never to allow my implements to be taken from my farm. The machine is in the barn, and she may bring her grain there to be winnowed," an offer it was manifestly impossible to accept. Mrs. Green had not forgotten the implied refusal when the old bachelor sent his hired man over one morning to borrow her side saddle for the use of a visiting re lative. "I shall only too glad to favor him , was the word sent back by the astute Mr. Green, "but I never allow anything I own to be carried off the farm. My saddle is banging across a beam in the barn loft Tell Mr. Bromne to send his aunt over. She may ride there as long as she likes." Believed in Mm Home Treatment, In Ohio as in several other States, persons condemned to death are taken to the State can. ital' for execution. Recently in the Greene county court, a jury was being chosen -to try a murder case. One member of the panel had been asked the nsnal questions, and had given satisfactory answers, until the lawyer for the defense inquired: "Do von believe in canital nnn- ishment?" "No sir," was the prompt reply. "I believe in hanging them r 1 1 here et home." WHY PROHIBITION HA5 FAILED The Battle )nly Begun W hen a Prohibitory Law is passed. Biblical Recorder. The sooner we realize that in dealing with the liquor traffic we we are not dealing with an ordinary evil the better. If we thought that the present effort in North Carolina was going ta be abandoned as soon as elections have been carried, we would repudiate it now. Impassioned as they are, the people are not aware of the real character of the task they have undertaken. Prohbition is by no means sufficient. Prohibition is only'the begining of the battle. Those who are shouting over prohibition are proclaiming nothing so much as their own ignorance and incompetence to deal with the drink evil; an evil deeply entrenched in modern civilization. Tennessee's danger in this hour lies in the ease with which her elections are begin carried. If this leads her good people to think that they have no battle on their hands, there will come a revulsion that will establish the saloons in Tennessee for half a century to come. Look at the record. Prohibition has been carried to twenty-seven States, and twenty-four of them have abandoned it! It has been carried in thousands of towns, and likewise abandoned. Why? Because it was not properly followed up. It was not enforced. It was not defended. The people (ell back and "whiskey rings'comes to the front in politics. Moreover, nothing was done to reach the drunkard, nothing to cure him, nothing to relieve him, nothing to supply his social need. It is not that prohibition itself has (ailed, but that the prohibitionists have (ailed. Now is this history to be repeated in North Carolina' If so, let us not waste time and money and blood. Let us give our energies to other things. The Petrified Man in Trouble. Ashi' villi' IN.iTesitodem-t'or rliarlolti' o!.Ti-r. The Pristine Petrified Phenomenon Company is in a quandary. Neither the railroad authorities nor the express company care to assume the responisbility for handling "the mysterious body of stone," with the result that the corporation has been in executive session almost contiuously during the past twenty-four hours. It was the purpose ol the managers to make a tour of the object of petrifaction, but this decision of the express and railway companies interferes with the programme. It seems that since the incorporation of this impressive concrn a valuation of more, than $10,000 has been placed on the petrified man, and it is this valuation that has caused the common carriers of the country to hesitate.

Voung Wife Kills Her Baby and Almost Kills Herself. rviiPTshunt. Va., Mimtch, lath. Mrs. ; Jasper F. Gwaltney. a 17-year-old wife and mother, crazed by jealousy, to-day killed her nine-months-old infant with morphine and then attempted suicide by the same means. The attempt failed, and to night she arrested by the police and is in jail awaiting the result of the coroner's inquest. The tragedy-is the work of gossips who told Mrs. Gwaltney that her husband had been seen walking with a former sweetheart. A desperate street duel took place at YaiJoCity, Miss , Saturday between T. A. and E. M Kelley, on one side, and R. F. Birdsall, editor of the Yazoo Sentinel, and his two brothers-in law, Gibbs and Doyle Dorsey, on the otht-r. T. A. Kelley was instantly killed by a bullet through his heart, and his brother was dan gerously wounded. Doyle Dorsey was also fatally shot and died later. The editor was the only-one in the crowd who didn't get shot and tie is now in jail. "Stnngth and vigor come ol good food, duly digested.

Yours for business, 11 r - Wireless Telegraphy in Charlotte. Charlttt News, Hla. Charlotte, first in pretty much everything else, is the first city in this section of the South to witness practical demonstrations of the utility of wireless telegraphy and that under the direction of former well known Charlotte citizen, CapL K. 8. Fincb, who is now eoo-necied with the American De Forest Wireloss Telegraph Company. Capt. Finch is accompanied by Mr. H. E. Athearn and Mr. H. J. Uugliea, electricians and operators, who come from the headquarters of tbe company at 100 Broadway, Xew York. These gentlemen rigged up their apparatus today at K. H. Jordau & t'o.'s drug store and the Davidson building next door and have been sending and receiving ''aerograms'' throughout the day, while all sorts and conditions of people hare been crowding around to witness the demonstrations. The outfit used is portable and very simple, considering the great advance of this system in the electrical world and its superiority over the Murcoui system. Sim plicity is, iu fact, one of its strong points. Mr. Hughes, who was stationed in the drug store, touched the key with the hand of a swift and skilled Morse oiwintor aud sparks began to leap betweeu two copper wires connecting with the electrie coil. Next door in the Davidson building, with thick walls between, Mr. Athearn receive! the messages with eift trumpets over bis head like those '"central" wears.
