ADAMS DRUG COMPANY "Get Tie Yellow Picki(e" Tie Nyil Store TTSV rjiiome The, Gastonia Gazette FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 5,1815. Yes, a Sorry Excuse. Under the head of "A Sorry com" The Raleigh News and er rery fittingly says: 'The Highlander, published at Shelby, with Mr. R. H. DePriest as . editor, announces that it has changed from an 'Independent' . paper and Is bow (or 'Republican Protection and Prosperity.' In giving its reason for , a change of politics it declares: 'low tariff proves disastrous to prosperity setting forth as its proof for tne assertion that it had gone into debt luce Wood row Wilson became Presi dent. . We have heard many amusing reasons for a change in political position, but it strikes us that this Is bout as amusing a one as we have come across. Let's look into the matter and see.

That continued in the South until the conditions brought on by the war In Europe cut to the bone prices of the cotton crop, and money ran short in the South. : -Because of this there was a large redaction in advertising, and papers throughout the South especially had to economise.

"The tariff has had nothing to do with the newspaper business, or witn any business since the war began, for imports have been shut out rrom many countries and the business interests of this country have not felt any effects of foreign competlton In a degree to hurt. If Editor DePriest's Highlander loBt money it did it because it did not receive patronage enough to run it, and his low tariff excuse for a change of politics a-mounts to nothing. "That the Highlander is in financial difficulties is stated by The Cleveland Star, also published at Shelby. But the Highlander is not the only paper which has owed money, and its friends regret that such difficulties beset it. But to lay its troubles upon a Democratic revenue tariff, which admittedly has never had a chance because of the war, is an attempt to shift the cause of the Indebtedness of the Highlander, whlcn no Democratic paper can let go unchallenged, for the tariff is as far removed from the difficulties of that paper as the assertion that the moon is made of green cheese is removed from the truth." SERVED THE COMMUNITY. Man Who Established First Free Public Library in State. It has been mentioned from time to time that one of the best public libraries in the State is located at Ledger, a rural community in Mitchell county. The donor of the library, Charles Hallett Wing, died recently and this fact has brought the matter of his donation before the public a-gain, and these facts are from an unknown writer, says The Statesville Landmark : Becoming interested in the mica industry, Mr. Wing went to Ledger in 1885 and lived there for over 20 years. A native Bostonian, a graduate of Harvard, and former professor of chemistry at Cornell University and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, he was well equipped mentally for community leadership. Mr. Wing's wealth made it possible for him to express his altruistic spirit and broad sympathies in a very helpful way. His simple friendliness and unaffected nature soon won for him the esteem and affection of the hospitable mountain folks. Realizing that freedom of mind and spirit comes from contact with books, Mr. Wing built and equipped a free public library, which was opened in 1887. The library has 12,-000 volumes given by northern libraries and friends of Mr. Wing. On the second floor in an assembly hall for civic and social gatherings of the community. Nearby is a cottage for the librarian. The library is free to all the people of Mitchell county and cases of traveling libraries are sent out wherever there is a call and a need. No one can estimate the Joy that the books of the Good-Will Free Library have carried to the isolated homes of the people of Mitchell county. , The library is now the property of the board of education of the county by gifts of its founder, and it is administered according to the plans laid down by him. A few years after completion of the library, Mr. Wing erected a school house. He employed local teachers to carry out his ideas and Boh of made the school free and public. He also furnished all school supplies for the children. In addition to the usual academic studies, the boys were taught carpentry and the girls sewing. Not only did this man maintain a keen interest in the educational welfare of his adopted home, but he found time to teach the people many things of practical value to everyday life, such as a new method of salting pork. He was in constant touch with his friends in Ledger and took great pleasure in gathering sr number or them around his table for dinner on frequent occasions. "Owls Rest," the home that he built in Ledger, is a model of rural beauty and comfort. He had all the conveniences there, and a carpenter and blacksmith shop on the grounds. Several years ago, when his health began to fall, Mr. Wing gave the library and the school to the county authorities and went to live at Brighton, Mass., where he died. The library he established at Ledger was the first free public library in the State and the third county library Id the United States. 'CAPTAIX BOB," Cozy Theatre to Present Popular Ilay Made at Asheville. Capt. Bob Reynolds' production, "Captain Bob of the National Guard,' a scenario designed by the only Bob in the world, and with Governor Craig, United States army officers and others in the various roles, will be put on at the Cozy Theatre next Tuesday, November 9th, by Manager Estridge. The films were approved by the war department and passed by the board of censors and Asheville and North Carolina are very much in the electric light. The majority of the scenes of the picture were taken in and around Asheville which ofcourse will give it a peculiar interest to all the movie fans of this section. The plot is based on the importance of the national guard and its primary aim is to increase the public's interest in the national guard organizations in the states. A love story is also interwoven with the action of the plot. Captain Reynolds assumes tne leading role, that of "Captain Bob" with Elsie Doughty in the principal feminine part. Appearing in the picture are national celebrites including Maj. Gen. Leonard Wood, of tne United States army; Gen. A. L. Mills, of the United States army; Secretary of War, Lindley M. Garrison; Secretary of the Xavy Josephus Daniels and Hon. Locke Craig, governor of North Carolina. Asheville people VIIYYOUAREIMOUS The nervous system is the alarm system of the human body. In perfect health we hardly realise that we have a network of nerves, but when health is ebbing, when strength is declining, the seme nervous system gives the alarm in headaches, tiredness, dreamful tlerp, irritability and unless corrected, leads straight to a breakdown. To correct nervousness, Scott's Emulsion is exactly what you should take; its rich nutriment gets into the blood and rich blood feeds the tiny nerve-cells while the whole system responds to its refreshing tonic force. It is free from alcohol. Scott & Bowse. Bloom field. Vt. J. Featuring Robt R. Reynolds - h Iff f . . ... h -4 v .a Admission tfii are also in the picture among whom are Col. S.

Twelve convicts at the Rankin State Farm, seven of whom were serving life sentences, were pardoned by Governor Brewer today as a reward for having risked their lives in what is said by public health officials to have been a successful experiment to learn the cause of pellagra. Dr. Joseph Gold-berger, of the United States Public Health Service, said today that the tests had proved the correctness or his theory that the disease is caused by an unbalanced diet and that he Is convinced it can be cured by a balanced ration. The experiment was begun February 15 with 12 prisoners, each of whom was promised a pardon if he would strictly follow the diet Dr. Goldberger prescribed. The diet excluded milk, fresh lean meat, eggs, peas and beans. A diagnosis today by Dr. Goldberger and four Jackson physicians showed, it was said, that six of the prisoners had developed pellagra in a pronounced form and that two others showed symptoms or the disease. They will be placed under treatment with a balanced ra tion. Governor Brewer having urged them to remain at the prison to be nursed back to health. Hones for European War. Statesville Landmark.
