Calling in Certificates.
The determination to call in
the clearing house certificates
and resume specie payment has
taken on very definite shape,
says the Atlanta Journal.
Chicago has already destroyed
twenty-five thousand dollars
worth of the certificates which
have been paid back into the
banks, and this will be continued
as fast as they find their way
bad- to the banks.
Chicago is not alone in her
to follow- this course.
The bank officials of that city
have sent out one thousand let-
to banks in the south and
west, asking their opinion of
calling in the certificates.
hundred and ninety-eight of
these have promptly expressed
their willingness to resume pay-
in currency, and only two
have temporized about the m it-
With the exception of the-e
two banks, they are one and all

way is a certain lack of
This cannot be restored
absolutely and completely until
the certificates have been called
in and the banks once more re-
specie payment
A significant feature of this
of opinion taken by
the Chicago banks is the fact
that the banks of the south and
west, where the scarcity of
money has been most deeply felt,
are as as those of any
other section of the country in
their consent to the resumption
of currency payments.
Facts like these cannot be dis-
counted. It is a substantial and
convincing evidence that the
worst of the financial stringency
is over and that business will
resume its normal sway as soon
as the people themselves make
up their minds completely that
there is nothing more to fear-

PRECOCIOUS CHILDREN.

All those with cart
of the young faced by a grave
problem in the case of children
who inherit or display precocity.
The to maturity of th
pimple, normal child, who passes
from stage to stage of its

easy matter. The trouble largely
that the nature of precocity is not
understood. Most parents, for
hail tho signs of it with de-
and do all they can to foster
them. They treat precocity as a
gold mine, to be for all it
is hut here they make a
great mistake.
There are several types of
children, presenting varying
degrees of peril to the training sys-
and this peril is greatly lesson-
ed by a capacity to classify the
types. There are certain
of healthy and intellectual
stock, with lino physiques. They
inherit usually very active nerve
centers, imply, among
things, quick and eager brain
These children hailed
with justice as tho legitimate flow-
of their heredity, and then all
concerned, including, of course, the
poor child itself, hasten to work
with tho fair prospect by a
cruel and shortsighted system of
forcing.
These children, being naturally
strong and well, can bear

While not a few of the people

the legislature saw lit to make it
lower, hence they believed as the

The governor has no
offer a compromise to the rail-
roads, nor a right to accept a
compromise, but if the railroad
should one that is deemed
consistent he has the authority
to call the legislature together to

Recently The Reflector printed
a news item taken from an ex-
change in reference to the con
the government postal
are having over the fact
that so few white men stand ex-

reason given for this, and the
authorities themselves should be
able to see it, is that the service
has been thrown open to

numbers that self respecting
white men turn from

The news item referred

of mail clerks, and under

retrograding. The postal
have only themselves to

they want to maintain the
of the mail sen ice they
must inaugurate changes in this
particular.
For some time one of the rail-
way mail clerks on the run be-
tween Weldon and Kinston has
been a and recently an-
other has been added.
This last one is an ex-preacher
who gave up the ministry to go
into the mail service.
Since the service has b en

It is time the congressmen
themselves were- interfering and
in some objections to this
condition, unless they want to
see the mail service further
crippled.
Now it is claimed that the
economy of the shopping women
who used to spend their pin
money more freely, is the real
cause of the panic. We knew
the men would succeed in putting
the blame on the women some
time-

The fact that the bonds to be
issued by the government were
over subscribed by people who
want to invest in them, shows
that there is yet money in the
land. If the money in hiding
was brought out and put in cir-
there would be no more
danger of financial panics.
Three hundred and fifty mil
lion cold storage eggs are to be
turned loose in Chicago, to offset
the supply taken from the hold
of the Atlantic liner, which aided
the British hen in becoming a
a contemporary of the American
hen.
For once Speaker Cannon's
of economy bubbled in
the right direction. He says
the parcels post matter is not to
be considered now. And it
should not be considered at any
other time, except to put it in
the pigeon hole and let it stay
there.
A young man in Mecklenburg
county shot and killed a young
lady, and after being arrested
confessed his crime- Yet when
the investigated
the verdict of the jury was
that the young woman was shot
by some party unknown. That
seems to about reach the limit.
The young man was certainly
taking chances his life to
ell such a lie on himself.
Perhaps the reason that Mr
Bryan does not want a campaign
committee next time he runs is
that he may be able to let down
Chairman K. Jones with-

The Cause of Indian Summer and

As the all know,
we usually have a season of
mild, hazy weather some
lime in November, to which has
been given the name of Indian sum-
mer. Familiar as the phenomenon
is, however, few people know what
causes it, chiefly perhaps because
they have never tried to find out.
Most of the scientists attribute the
mildness of the air at that time to
a change in the condition of the at-
which confines to the
lower strata the heat radiated from
the earth's surface. This
is not wholly satisfactory to a
layman, but it seems to be the host
that the scientists can do for us.
The hazy condition of the air at
that time is more easily explained.
It is due to the decay or the slow
chemical combustion of leaves,
grasses and other vegetable matter
under the combined action frost
and the sun. As to the name, In-
summer, several explanations
have- been given of that, the most
plausible being that the early set-
called it BO because they be-
that the smoky appearance
at that time n-as caused
and prairie fires kindled by the In-
Some people think that the
name came from the fact that the
Indians took advantage of that
