The Herald and Advertiser pro-
i fers against the News a grave
charge in reference to this paper's
mind. The News waives argil -
[ ment and admits that the II. and
A. has a corner on all the mind in
this section of the country. At
this point, however, the difference
, is plain: The News is always in
condition to make the licst list* of
its limited mental capacity; while
tin* Herald and Advertiser, more
often than otherwise, is so befud
dled that even its boundless men
tality cannot enable it to deter
mine whether it is right end up or
wrong end down.
THE HAND HOLDER OF THE HOME
to wrest it front Hoke Smith.
The Herald and Advertiser’s
latest and greatest effort in this
direction is the manifestation of
its sudden and ardent attachment
for Dr. Nunnally. Without en
tering into a discussion of the
various phases of this unaccouut-
aole attachment, the News charges
that the Herald and Advertiser’s
ostensible support of Dr. Nunnally
is merely one of those political
games which that journal prides
itself upon being able to play with
the most finished machine made
The Herald and Advertiser is
still for Howell; and its support of
Dr. Nunnally is, either a ruse to
divide the Smith vote and enable
Howell to carry the county, or an
attempt to throw the county to
Dr. Nunnally and indirectly give
it to Howell by weakening Smith.
These are the charges. The
Herald anil Advertiser is cordially
invited to meet them and defend
itself. The News is prepared to
prove its charges; and whether the
H. and A. squirms and dodges
and equivocates, as it lias done
l heretofore, or attemps to defend
! itself in a fair light, the News ex
pects to give the public the facts.

Seethe Heroic Agonizer, fairly
swelling with local pride, patriot

the hands of good Dr. Nunnally
in “the brave light he is making

naivete and admirable aplomb it
assumes the new role of apostle of
civic righteousness and reform!
Isn't it lovely
The Herald and Advertiser, the
faithful, zealous, enthusiastic pur
suer of political pie for the past
twenty years with its insatiate
appetite for pie yet unsatisfied
wrenches itself away from such
base things as pit* and henceforth
and forever declares itself the
meek, humble, lowly hand holder
of good and great preachers of
civic righteousness and reform.
Such unselfish conduct impress
es even a bold, bad newspaper like
tin* News; and if the Heroic
Agonizer holds its new course
long enough, possibly its shining
example will effect a reformation and 8at dowu to the work . nnd nex ,

Ma li IWork.
Stockholm's public library contains .;
wonderful work which is called "The
Devil's Code" and which. In addition
to its extraordinary name, is said to be
tin* biggest manuscript in tin* world.
Every letter is must beautifully drawn,
and the magnitude of the work is s i
great that it scents Impossible l'or any
single monk to imve done it.
The story of tin* origin of the manu
script, however, not only gives it a;
tin* w ork of out* man, but also states it
to tie the work ol' a single night. The
story runs as follows:
”A poor monk had been condemned
to death, but was told mockingly by
his judges that if he was able to copy
the whole ‘Code’ between darkness and
i dawn lit* would be saved. Belying up
on the Impossibility of the task, those
who sentenced him furnished him with
the original copy of the 'Code.' with
pen, ink and parchment, and left him.
"Death must have been as little liked
iu tlte middle ages as it is now, for the
monk, forgetting the hopelessness of
his task, commenced it. Before long,
however, he saw that he could not save
his own life by such weak exertions,
and, fearing a cruel and horrible death,
he invoked the aid of the prince of
darkness, promising to surrender his
soul if he were assisted In the task.
