Men have most of the principal-

because the salaries are higher,

better paid positions. In high

many men still. Some schools
pay the men more than they
pay equally capable women for
the same work, and thereby
maintain a fair balance for men
and women. If the standard is
high enough to attract men, the
women arc gradually displaced.
If it is lower, the men are dis-

any sort of work which women

quiet covert in this neighbor-

she was joined by a thrush, who
also laid four eggs in the same
nest Owing to the sheltered

dares with conviction that is
infinitely better to have property
assessed at its true

but as a matter of policy-and
have a low tar. rate, than to
have a low valuation of property
and a high tax The
Landmark holds that an actual-
value assessment would make a
difference only to the large tax-
payer, who as it truly says-
does not bear his proportion of
the burden under the system
now generally prevailing and
would consequently have no just
cause for complaint

North Carolina is

but they want a stop put to it. It
is results and not talk they are
after. When goods are hauled
through the State to a point be-
for less than the rate would
have been to stop them in the
State, there is good ground for a
kick North Carolina wants her
rights. She needs every cent of
money, f r education, for

and it is but right that our
people should seek to get justice
for the old North State in the
matter of freight rates.
