3 he Success Of Declare That Alamance Man Has Never Been Guilty of Improper in Office. Asfieville, June W. Scott, of Alamance, appointed Governor Locke Craig to succeed" himself as a member of the Board of. Agriculture, has the confidence of his associates on the board, according to resolutions adopted by fellow members of the v. board which were made public hcr-Saturday by Governor Craig.

The resolutions were adopted by. the board following the filing of charges against Mr. Scott in which it was charged that he had been guilty of improper conduct in office. In their resolutions to the Governor the other members of the board declare that the attacks on Mr. Scott are unfair and unjust and that they Vuld not be held against the man who has served so well.

Mr. Scott's associates declare that while they hav differed at times with him, they have "pund that he is upright and honest and has performed his duties as a member of the board in most satisfactory manner. The resolutions set forth that Mr. Scott has never been guilty of improper conduct in office; on the other hand, it is stated that he has been a faithful and efficient officer and has done the State excellent service. To refuse to appoint him to membership on the board to succeed himself because of the charges which have been made against him, the resolutions declare, would be doing a good man irreparable injury.

INCOME TAX PROFITABLE. $82,000,000 is Estimated Tax Derived From That Source in Years. Washington, D. June 17. Firs' estimates of return from the person al and corporation income tax have been revised upward by treasury department officials, who now anticipate more than $82,000,000 during the present calendar year from this source Estimates made in May promised a return of $80,035,000.

is now apparent, officials say that there will be sufficient money from this source to wipe out a large part of the deficit which appeared early in the year and which steadily increased until a short time ago. This fact is counted upon to silence for the present talk of the issuance of Panama canaLbonds to replenish the treas- i ury's balance f1 UV-UAl. Clean-UD davr i spring has become a custom iri- mafc unicipalities. We commend tb idek.mnd urge its continuance in those coiimunities where it has been practiced and further urge its adoption in others where it has not been instituted. It- must be evident to every fair- i minded person that such a day is of inestimable value to every municipal-' ity, not only from the point of fire pro- tection and improveing the appearance of the city or town, but from that the general health of the public as well.

I Our special interest is, of course, along i the lines' of fire protection. We urge the municipal officers, boards of trade, village improvement associations, pub-. lie organizations, as well as all public- spirited citizens, to unite to make a special effort for such a day. The per- sonal inspection of your own premises, removal of rubbish and examination for hazards may be a very fitting observance of such a day. Maine Bui i letin.

A STRONG OPINION. The London Daily Mail has expressed an opinion of the President of the United States which might as well be put on record right now. "It is because no man in a compicuous position of the democratic world today," it says, "is so entirely governed by principle and by moral sanctions that President Wilson is. not merely the first citizen of the United States, but the first citizen of the world." That is fine testimony and it comes from aii important source. We hope The London Daily Mail will abate in it not one jot or tittle when the note Death Follows After a Period Declining Health at Advanced Age of 79.

A MOST GLORIOUS CAREER He Had Been Minister to Brazil, United 'States Senator, of "Great Service to State. if. June 17. Weakened by the weight of the years which had brought him countless honors and the love and veneration of the entire Commonwealth which he served with singular ability and' wholly unselfishly, Thomas Jordan Jarvis, former Governor of. North Carolina, once Senator for the unexpired term of Vance, died here at his home tonight at 9 o'clock, aged 79 years.

For several months he had been in failing health, but during the past few weeks had rallied and so brought hope to his friends that his life' was to be spared perhaps for years to come. A gradual decline, however, further -enfeebled him and tonight he became a part of the State's most prjdeful history. Tne story oi nis me is a-succes- sion of periods of great usefulness Born at Jarvisburg, January 18, 1836, the. son of Rev. B.

H. and Elizabeth Jarvis, he graduated from Randolph- Macon College in 1860, joined the Army of the Confederacy lebl as a private and fought his way to the rank of a captain, and stayed at the front until his right arm was shattered by a bullet in 1864 and he was forced to leave the servic. He was a member the State Constitutional Conventions of 1865 and 1875, early gaining the confidence of those who were regenerating the Commonwealth. He was admitted to. the bar in 1868 and at once began the practice of his profession.

In 1868 and 1872 he was presidential elector. December 23, 1874, he was married to Miss Mary Woodson. He became member of the General Assembly and served throughout the terms of 1868-69 and 1870-71, and during, the last term was Speaker of the House. Elected Lieutenant Governor in 1877 he became Governor when Governor 1879. He was elected Governor for, the next term and served until 1885.

From 1885 until 1889 he was Minister to Brazil. In 1894 he was chosenate Vance's death to fill the unexpired term, and so was Senator for a year. In 1896 he was delegate at large to the J)emocratic National Convention Since that time he had retired from office, but not from public life. During the last 20 years his chief est has been the cause of education. Quietly as he did all things, he set to work for the.

East Carolina Teachers Training School at Greenville, a splendid institution that now has an enrollment of over 300 and would have more if there were adequate facilities, and more to him than to any one else is due its success. Before the faculty and students, rwho in January last helped him celebrate the anniversary of his birth, he gave expression to some of his-hopes for the advancement of his State and said that education was the cause closest his heart. The remains were Intered in the cemetery at Greenville Sunday afternoon, the population turning out en masse to pay last respects to this honored citizen. $20,000,000 DAGE. Moscow Suffers Much During Anti-German Demonstration.

Petrograd, via London June 21i Moscow suffered damage to the amount of $20,000,000 during the recent anti- German demonstrations in which nearly 500 stores and factories and more than 200 private lodgings wrecked. The infuriated mobs turned the city intowild disorder, according to eye witnesses. From music stores, pianos and other musical instruments were hurled into the streets until the piles of wreckage made traffic impossible. The rioters, heated with liquor, found in the demolished wine stores, became reckless in their, pillaging, burning many stores and apartments, the owners of which were Russians Of the total number of buildings destroyed only 113 belonged to Austrc German subjects. The demonstrations beginning e-on June 9, lasted more than 24 hours Uuildmgs burned; and crumbled to ashes, and the fire departments, al though active throughout the disturbances, found it impossible to cope" with the flames.

Is it not a sufficient political achievement for woman that future rulers nurse at her breast, laugh in her arms and kneel at her feet Can ambition leap to more glorious heights! than to sing lullabies to the world's greatest genuises, chant melodies to master minds and rock the cradle' of human destiny?

Why this longing for civic cower when Cod baa made her ruler over all? Why crave authority when man bows down and worships her? Man has given woman his heart, his name and his money.

I folIo.wUhe plow for a living and my "vie may have in them the smell of the soil; my hair is turning white under the frost of many winters and perhaps I am a little old-fashioned, but I believe there is more moral influence In the dress of woman than in all the statute books of the land. As an agency for morality, I wouldn't give my good old mother's homemade gowns for all the suffragette's, constitutions and by-laws in the world. As a power for purifying society, I wouldn't give one prayer of my saintly mother for all the women's votes in Christendom.

As an agency for good government, I wouldn't give the plea of a mother's heart for righteousness for all the oaths of office in the land. There is more power in the smile of woman than in an act of congress. There are greater possibilities for good government in her family of laughing children than in the cabinet of the president of the U.nitpd States The destiny of this nat'on lies fcQ the home and not in the legislative hafts. The Tiearthston a.nd He fam of our inspiration and the Acta of the-Apostles will ever shine brighter than he acts of Congress. This country is law-mad.

Why add to a statute book, already groaning under its own weight, the hysterical cry of woman? If we never had a chance to vote again in a lifetime and did not pass another law in five years, we could survive the or-1 deal, but without home civilization would wither and die. God save these United States; from coming a hen-pecked nation; help ua keep sissies out of Congress! and forbid that women become stepfathers to government, is the prayer of the farmers of this country.

A. Rice, D. D. Pastor St John M. E.

Church. South, St Louis. Mo. Some years ago, the question was asked: What is a college? The attempt to answer it shodk the educational world in America from centei to circumference. Another question la now beginning to be asked: What is a church? Without undertaking to give a definition of it, let me ask, in this initial paper, what the church is for? The New Testament reveals three distinct tasks to which it is committed.

First, that of evangelization. The church is divinely commissioned to reach for the lowest and the least man in the least land and offer him sonship to the Eternal God; offer him a -divine power, which lifts him out of the bog and places him upon the i highest levels of human life, where I God and the soul are in fellowship, i This alone were an immense priv ilege. Teaching the Art of Living. i The church is commissioned also to teach and train those who are I rich with its evangelistic message. The term, Religious Education, has I come to mean a specific thing in our country, namely, the training of the people in the local church in those deep matters which pertain to the art of living.

I am not now speaking of the work of education in schools. colleges and universities, but the work of education at our doors, in the con-j gregation. Every agency in reach should be employed to the utmost in this important mission. Indeed, the ml iocai cnurcn coma do maae a son oi university for all the people, in which the simple, practical arts and virtues I of everyday life should be taught and Only recently has this special phase of the church's work received anything like adequate attention. The New Testament word for it is Edification.

School of Religion Needed. Of course, the Sunday School is the center for all this work, although the dav School should cease to be so named. It should be called the School of Religion or the Church School or something else that indicates It to be an all-the-week activity. During-this time various and sundry clubs, classes, musical organizations, culture courses, as well as distinctly religious meetings, should be held. Thickly settled neighborhoods, as we shall see, offer fine opportunities for the development of things spiritual.

The third task to which the church is committed is that of Christianizing the social order; that of infusing the spirit of Jesus into every nook and corner of our life. Nothing Is foreign to the interest of the church. Neighborly Love Essential. If religion pervades and colors the whole life then ours is serious business, for it will let no corner of the world escape its influence. The sooner we learn that Christianity is not a thing to be practiced in a comer the better for the world.

The Question of the eighteenth century, touching Christianity, wag, can It be made to Square with the human reason? Of the teenth, Can it be made to square wigi. the results of scientific research? Of che twentieth, What can it dot We must learn to enforce not only love of God, whom we cannot see, but lQVeto our neighbors, with whom we are living in constant contact. Neither without -ne other is Christianity whatever else it may be. Everything that interests his neighbors must interest him, if he is a genuine follower of the Christ.1 It is the mission of the church the rural as well as the city to eyange-, lize the whole world, to train to the highest degree of efficiency those whom it evangelizes and to seek to make the spirit of Jesus the absolute rale in all human relations. It is an admitted economic fact that there can be no permanent prosperity without a permanent agriculture.
