Groat has Right to
Make Regulations.
By Cable to The Reflector.
The Hague, Sept. award in
the fisheries dispute between Eng-
land and Canada against the United
States, was signed this morning. This
was a triumph for arbitration. It
holds that the British have absolute
rights to form regulations
in New waters, but re-
commends that two notice be
given on the whole. The award is re-
in the diplomatic world as
satisfactory. The decision is
on all questions but one, this
being the question of defining bays,
which the commission refused to do.
By the award the dispute that has
lasted almost a hundred years,
has twice nearly brought England and
the United States to war, is definitely
settled. An Industry of a million
a year Is beyond dispute and com-
questions, which have been
wrangled over since 1818, are solved.
The agreement of British and
can Judges is complete, the only ob-
beg made by Senor
the Argentine representative. The
agreement, it is believed, will prove
satisfactory to all three
countries involved.

That He be Given a Trial in Regard
to by Grand Jury.
Greenville, N. C, Sept. 1910.
Mr. J. P. Chairman,
Board if County Commissioners,
Greenville, N. C
My attention been called to a
report made by the grand jury of Pitt
county, at its recent session. I quote
from this
That we visited the home of the
aged and infirm, and found everything
clean and apparently in good order.
We further find that the
of the county home and the
superintendent of health are at en-
towards each other; and that
the superintendent of the home and
some of the inmates are also
That the superintendent of the
home has failed to visit the Camp-
bells for at least a month.
We that the
of the home raise a
amount of vegetables to
his family and patients.
We further recommend most em-
that the superintendent of
health be removed at once. This
seems to us the most advisable way
of settling this dispute or difficulty
and we recommend that the county
commissioners attend to this matter
I am addressing you, for the
son that I know of no other person
that I can address a letter on this
subject in order to present my view
of these conditions to the public, and
I will furnish the Greenville
tor a copy of this letter for
perhaps before you have even
seen the same.
I understand that the superintend-
of health is elected conjointly by
the action of the county commission-
and a physician appointed by the
chairman of the county board of com-
missioners, and the mayor of the
county town, and this board
by a physician appointed by the
mayor of the county town and a
appointed by the board of com-
missioners, together with the county
commissioners, constitute the board
of election for a superintendent of
I was elected to the position of
of health of Pitt county
on the first Monday in May, The
board electing me consisted of, under
the regulations recited, Dr. W. W.
Dawson, of Grifton, Dr. J E Nobles,
of Greenville, and the board of county
commissioners then comprising of J.
P. Quinnerly, N. T. Cox, Dempsey
land, B. M. Lewis and J. J. May. At
the election, I received the votes of
Commissioners Lewis, May, Holland
and Cox. and was declared

I have honestly endeavored to dis-
charge the duties of the office and

and hope this has not incited any
jealousy from any source. I certainly
would do no one any harm and I am
sorry to believe that some enemies of
mine have instigated this, won't Fay

It is not my desire to make any

But Thinks Should be Modified from
The Law.
Some days ago I noticed in a copy
of your paper that Mr. the
mayor strongly
the Torrens Land System for
North Carolina, and urged upon the
Democratic voters of Pitt county the
necessity of sending Mr. R. R. Cot ten
to the senate to make this
setts law a law in our own state. At.
time Mr. published this
article, I knew very little of the Tor-
Land System, so replying for In-
formation, I a few of his
points and asked that a clear and con-
explanation of the system be
I have been both surprised and dis-
appointed, that a man of Mr. Bar
wick's intelligence and ability has not
rendered to voters of Pitt county
this much sought information. How-
ever, I noticed in Wednesday's Re-
an article taken from the Pro-
Farmer, and I am glad to
see that Mr. Cot ten or Mr.
have at least secured some
for us on this subject, although
they were not the authors of it. It
docs seem that if Mr.
us to accept this system upon his
advocacy he would have explained
the same; and that if we were ex-
look to Mr. Cotten to pass
this law for us, he would have point-
ed out for our benefit the advantages
of the system, and not waited for the
Progressive Farmer to do this
Now, in explanation of the position
I have taken, I wish to state, that, in
so much as I now believe the Torrens
System is to the advantage; of the ma-
of the people, I am heartily
in favor of it; that is when it has
been so modified that it will fit the
conditions existing here in North
Carolina, and not copied from a bill
devised for a state like Massachusetts.
I do object to sending a man
to the senate upon this sole issue of
so little immediate importance, or of
pledging our legislators to get
through this foreign law, as the Pro-
Farmer would have us do.
It is indeed painful to note the gen-
opinion the Progressive Farmer
has of the profession called law, and
the pessimistic view it takes of our
legislature when composed of a ma-
of lawyers. Yet who have we,
not of the profession of law, who has
made a study of the laws governing
read estate, and is capable of con-
a law for North Carolina,
upon the principles of the Torrens
System, and with a mechanism equal
to that of the law
If we arc to have a Sys-
in our state or county, and it is
to be hoped we will have one, let us
have an adequate law, made by com-
honest lawyers of which we
have plenty.

For August of last year the sales

The smaller number of pounds this

this year the market did not open

corn which have originated in various
places to the dry western counties of

the experiment. These are now being

In addition, crosses are to be made
this summer between the Western
Dent varieties arid an extraordinary
variety of Chinese corn obtained by
Professor Roberts from the United

This corn has similar drought
characters which enables it to
grow and make a crop where all other
varieties fail.
The grain of the Chinese corn is
inferior, but the effort is being made
to combine tho drought resistant char-

Post Offices New Money
Announcement has been made that
the post office department will in the
near future issue a new form of do-
money order. A principal
of the new form will be a de-
coupon to take-the place of
the advice on the present slips, and
which will be presented with the
money order by the payee or en-
at the paying office.
It is stated that the names of the
and payee will not appear
in the body of the order, but tho
sending of the coupon with the order
will serve to acquaint or remind the
payee of the name of the person en-
titled to credit for the remittance.
The order and coupon together are
somewhat longer than the order
in use, but may be handled
with commercial paper by
banks and business houses. The width
is the same as that of the present
Beginning with the earliest date at

supposed that the old forms now on

ones are requested. The latter will

be Exhibited at The State Fair
in Raleigh.
Mr. J. F. Evans, agent for the farm
demonstration work in Pitt county,
dropped in to say that Pitt county
ought to an exhibit of her re-
sources at the coming State fair. With
this suggestion we entirely agree, for
there is no use of the farmers in Pitt
shutting themselves up and not let-
ting the outside world know what
they are doing.
Mr. Evans says that a number of
farmers who are engaged in the
work this year have
did crops, and they could well afford
to put them on exhibit in competition
for prizes at the fair. In addition to
crops of various kinds, we are sure
that Pitt county also make a
creditable showing in the way of live
stock and poultry. Let the farmers
take hold of and work
now getting something in readiness
for exhibit at the fair.
Bird With Face.
Mr. N. M. Plummer, a prosperous
farmer of Mount Ulla, was in
ville a few day ago exhibiting a
strange freak in the shape of a bird
with human face. It was evidently
of the owl species, but unlike any that
has ever been captured in these parts.
For several years along the back
creek bottoms in that neighborhood
Mr. Plummer says people working in
the field were often startled by a cry
like a human voice, giving signals of
distress, but upon investigation
could be found The bird was
captured last Saturday, having been
discovered by Mr. Plummer while cry-
like an infant, having slipped
upon it unawares. The bird would
not eat, and while exhibiting the fowl
on the streets, the human-like thing
died in his arms, crying Its
voice was clear and could talk plain

His Act Believed to be Due to
Brought on l Collapse
Greenville was greatly shocked
when it became known, late Monday
afternoon, that Mr. Frank G. Perkins
committed suicide. The tragedy
occurred a little before o'clock In his
office at the plant of the Cabinet
Company, of he was

When they entered Mr.
Perkins was lying Oil the floor near
his desk. A pistol near him on the
floor and a blood stain on his left
breast told the story of the dreadful
tragedy that had occurred.
Dr. Charles Laughinghouse was tel-
for at once and he hurried
to the factory, but Mr Perkins had
passed away when he arrived, death
resulting In a few minutes after the
was fired. An examination of
the body showed that the ball had
passed directly through the heart.
The body was turned over to Under-
taker E. G. Flanagan who embalmed

Mr. Perkins was a native of Boston.
He first came to Greenville prospect-
about four years ago. and liking
the section and finding much raw ma-
here, he was soon at work to
organize and locate a large cabinet

similar plant at South Bend, Ind., and
was thoroughly familiar with that
line of business. The plant was mod-

start is was a success. He also

He really did more than his
could stand, and a year ago
suffered almost a complete collapse,
physically and mentally. He was
sent to a sanitarium and was away
about a year, returning to Greenville
a few weeks ago. While his
seemed better, it was noticed by his
close friends that he was alto-

much depressed.

cheerful than he had been recently,

V. Social Life In the
Copyright, 1510, by American Press
social life and amusements
of the country are essentially
different from those in the
city. have heard people say
that, there is no such thing as social
life the country, but inquiry dis-
closed the fact that they never had
spout much time in a modern, wide
awake farm community. The
of all social life is in the home. It
is in the country that the home is de-
to the highest extent, and it
follows that it is in the
country that the strongest basis for a
healthy social life exists.
The social life of the so called
people of the city does not exist
in the country, and it is a blessing to
the country that It docs not. Such a
social life is unnatural. Social life Is
primarily for amusement, recreation
development. Where is the amuse-
or the recreation in the struggle
for social recognition by a clique
whom a turn of the wheel of fortune
has brought uppermost Where is the
development unless it be the develop-
of heartaches on the part of the
wife and poverty on the part of the
husband Such a where
are measured by money
than by their worth, is
rather than social life.
Outside the circles the so-
life of the city consists largely of
Island and Its
theaters public dances.
Some of these things are all right In
their way. They furnish amusement
recreation. But they do not fur-
Here Is where the great advantage
of country serial life comes It is
not furnished ready made to those who
have the price. Social diversions In
the country are made to order. That
is the reason why some people do not
like them, and that is why a person
who once really gets Into the spirit of
country social life Is never afterward
satisfied with social affairs in which
he cannot have an active part.
The social possibilities of the country
are not taken advantage of in all com-
it is true. In too many
places each family Is content to live
by Itself, with as little Intercourse

With I be general waking up of
the farming districts is coming a
broadening of social life. In some
places the local church Is the social
center, but too often there are some
members who consider so harmless n
thing as an ice cream supper to help
pay the preacher a sin. As a result
the Importance of the church as a so-
factor is not what it should be.
The most Important centers of social
life the country are organ-
of kinds. Probably
the most important of those, because
the most extensive. Is the grange. The
grange has been in existence for for-
years and numbers present
more than members. those
communities where It has obtained a
strong hold it is very effective in bring-
the people together. In the older
states a grange neighborhood can be
told by the looks of the farms and
The plan of the local grange Is to
hold meet lugs at regular intervals,
usually a week in the winter and
sometimes as as once a
month In the summer. Generally these
meetings are held at the home of one
Of the members. The whole family be-
longs. As u rule, there Is a literary
program in connection with the meet-
where the boys and girls learn to
talk In public. Part of the program Is
devoted to agricultural topics, as one
of the objects of the grange is
In farming. There is always
enough amusement mixed in, how-
ever, to keep the children interested.
In the winter the meetings begin in
afternoon, and the men look over
the stock and talk over their problems
while the children play and the women
In addition to the there are
many local farmers clubs that arc
doing a great deal to bring their
together socially. The only
son that there are more such or-
is the lack of some one to
take the lead. The cities have so long
been the best blood from some
rural communities that many places
there Is precious little left to build
upon. With the changing conditions
that are restoring the farm to u lead
log place our national life there
will be no lack of lenders, and the
time will come when every community
will have its club or grange.

they could do would be to stand on

will be foremost in the agricultural
communities of tomorrow. One of the

tern of and corn clubs.
There are a few in Iowa and Illinois,
and more are being organized. The
members of these clubs each have
their plot of corn. They meet around
from place to place, get better ac-
with one another and study
corn growing. Often an experienced
corn grower meets with them and
gives them some practical lessons. In
some cases these clubs are under the
supervision of the agricultural college,
which out letters of instruction
to the boys every two weeks or so. In
the winter a corn contest Is held at
the agricultural college. Some of the
counties have local contests. There
are prizes for the best corn and for the
best corn judging. Often the boys who
do the best work the local contests
have their expenses paid to the state
contest at the agricultural college.
Similar contests In cooking and sew-
are held for the girls. Work of
this kind is an inspiration to the boys
and girls. They begin to see some of
the real enjoyment of farm life.
This work is being extended to the
boys of the cities by means of summer
camps, where the boys are for a
vacation, at the same time getting in-
and object lessons In
culture. Many a boy who otherwise
would have spent his life in town
working for somebody else is thus

Another big factor In rural social life
Is the country literary society. This
reaches more people than a grange or
a club can reach. Its disadvantage is
that the membership Is so large that
only a few can appear on the pro-
grams. But a great many
and they eagerly avail themselves of
the opportunity. The country literary
society when rightly managed com-
both the social and the
features and is a great uplift to
the community.
Along with these other social factors
come the local lecture courses. The
talent Is not always the best, but usu-
ally it Is surprisingly good. there
are Ice cream suppers, picnics and
fishing excursions in the summer and
oyster suppers in the winter. The

a fraternal order or two, where they

During the last few years the Y. M. C.
A. has been extending to the country
and a groat deal of good work.
Often clubrooms and a gymnasium
are established, where the neighbor-
hood boys can meet and try their
skill. Where such rooms have
taken the place of the grocery store as
an evening meeting place for the boys
and young men there Is a noticeable
improvement the community.
During vacations, when the young
people are home from school, there Is
no lack of social diversions that

Young Pitt Visits It and De-

Los Angeles, Cal., Aug. 1910
Having just returned from my mid-
summer vacation, which I spent in
the Yosemite valley, and being so
pressed with its natural
scenery, I will write and give your
readers, many of them whom I have
the honor of claiming as friends, a
slight description of the valley.
The valley is situated in

middle of the State of California, and
between the eastern and western foot-
hills of the mountains. Formerly
the valley was for

in that region fell with so much

passage over the highways,
at present a railway line goes to El
Portal, which is distant only some
few miles from the valley, this dis-
being covered by stage coach
over a highway con-
by the Federal government,
under whose control is the valley,
thus eliminating the obstacles Which
formerly made the trip so disagree-
able. Now the valley can be visited
at any period of the year.
The railroad goes from to
El Portal. It traverses the
valley of the river and
crosses it at various points. On reach-
the foothills of the mountains,
the railways follows the course of the
river, which at times is at a very
great depth below the road, and at
others almost on a level with it. The
line from El Portal to the Yosemite
is traveled, as has already been said,
by means of a stage coach, and is
very comfortable as well as

Erst Carolina Teachers Training
school this morning to learn how the
is starting its second session.
He found President Wright and the
faculty Just delighted with the pros-
and all were as busy as could
be registering pupils and getting them
properly assigned. Today was de-
voted to registering the old students,
those who attended last year, and It
was gratifying to see so many of them
ready to take up their work again
Tomorrow is the day for registering
new students, a large number of whom
are also present and more coming in
by every train.
The regular school work will be-
gin Thursday morning, at which time
it is safe to that students will
be present. The number of
of rooms for hoarding students
has already reached to say nothing
of the local who will live in
town Instead of the dormitories. This
record, compared with the opening a
year ago the number was is
enough to make everybody rejoice at
the splendid growth of the school.
President Wright says he looks for-
ward to a year of fine work.

Opens Fire on the Preacher Who
Proves Ready to Return In Kind
Both Bound Over to Court.
There was much excitement among
colored people here, Monday afternoon
over a shooting affair that was en-
gaged in between Herman Cherry, a
young colored man, and Rev. Martin
Butler, the pastor of the colored
Methodist church. The trouble grew
out of charges against the preacher
of wrong with a sister of Cherry.
Relatives of the girl for two or three
days have been on the track of the
preacher, had warned him that he
must leave town by a certain time, end
some of the preacher's sympathizers
had been guarding him at night
through fear that he might be attack-
It seems that Herman Cherry, the
of the girl, did not live here
but being advised of the trouble came
to Greenville Monday. Late in the
he was on Reade street, saw
Butler, the preacher, sitting in the
door at the home of Sherman Fore-
man. Cherry pulled out a gun and
began trying to use It on the preacher,
and the also drew a gun and
began firing it. Some say that Cher-
gun would not fire and others
say that it did. At. any rate there
were several shots fired but none of
struck anybody.
After the shooting Cherry came up
town and surrendered to the sheriff
and Butler was arrested a little later
and both of them were taken before
