WHILE STROLLING OUT ONE
While strolling out one lovely eve,
With my love, my Genueve:
To promise rue her hand and heart
I asked her ere we two did part.
Then sweetly gazing in my eyes,
She pointed upward toward the sky;
Pointed to the evening star
That shines so brightly from afar.
"Do you see that star,'' she said
"That shines so brightly overhead?
Till that star shall cease to shine
All my love, yes all is thine. "
Five long years have passed away
Since, to me, that happy day;
But keep her word, I know she will,
And the star is shining still.
Soon the path 111 travel o'er.
That I walked some years before
And I'll claim my little one
Whom five years ago I won.
WHAT A FARMER AND A FISH
ERMAN IS DOING.
Everybody has heard of the great
fisheries on Albemarle Sound at Avoca,
and vho has not heard of the hospitality
of one of the fisheries men, Dr. Win. R.
Capehart? Well, the continued and
increasing interest in that sec ion and
the growing number of visitors has
compelled the enterprising owner of
one of the finest water views of the
lovely bay to build a hotel for the
good people He has finished it, and
on the 16th, 17th, 18th and 19th days
of April, is going to throw it open to
his friends A trio of Governors,
headed by His Excellency and flanked
bv Vance and Jarvis, and Senators of
the United States, with Ramsom as
spokesman, and editors from a distance
and at home, Grandy, Ashe, Daniels,
r'olk, Creecy and others. Lt. Gov
Holt, Speaker Leazar, the distinguished
agriculturist, Sid. B. Alexander, the
fish authority, Col. McDonal, Col.
Skinner and other distinguished citizens
will honor the occasion There is to
be sailing, fishing, yacht racing, fox
chasing, seining, gunning, horse racing.
The ladies will be out in full force, and
boats will run every hour to Eden ton
and Plymouth. Oyster bakes and
clam bakes, music and dancing and
moonlight picnics on the water Such
is a part of the programme which the
Progressive Farmer will print in due
time. We predict that it will be the
most superb and the most thoroughly
enjoyable eutertainment ever given by
a private citizen in our State.
COURTSHIP AND MARRIAGE.
Belva Lockwood says the great
trouble is that we have been educating
the girls to get married. They have
been taught that their sole aim in life
should be to catch a husband. As a
consequence, young girls marry com
mercially; in fact, almost any kind of a
marriage is made, the purpose seeming
to be to get some one to support them.
Such a system is mere prostitution and
decidedly immoral. There should be
no excuse for marriage, except a strong
and pure love.
If some of you would get ten dollars J
an hour for every bit of time you had
put in at doing good work for God, I
you would't get enough, on a square
settlement, to buy a cake ot gingerbread

NO FALSE APPEARANCE FOR
Ihere is said to be an
law of New Jersey, passed
State was a British colon", which
provides "that all women, of whatever
age, rank, profession , or degree,
whether virgins, maids, or widows.
who shall after this act impose upon,!
seduce or betray into niatrunonv any ot
His Majesty s subjects by virtue of
scents, cosmetics, washes, paints, arti
ficial teeth, false hair, or high-heeled
shoes, shall incur the penalty of the
law now in force against witchcraft
and like misdemeauors " Ex
How glad the average American
girl, resident in other States, should be
that they are not in New Jersey. If
the law existed in some sections the
trial dockets in all our courts would f;e
burdened with charges of "witchcraft"
aud other li e misdemeanors. Oh! the
women, the women, how fond of the
artificial and how fair they appear
under the brightening influence of
factitious adorn met is. 'Twould be
hard for them to surrender their arti
ficial adornment for, to io so, would
be to say "Behold me as I am auu
mark with cure my wrinkles."
TYRRELL COUNTY'S MENAGERIE.
Gum Neck We have read of the
beasts with seven heads and ten horns,
in fact we have seen on canvass a
panorama of scenes in the old and new
testament, but we have seen to day one
great freak of nature; it was a calf,
well developed in every particular,
with two heads; the heads being twin
or grown together, having three eyes,
two ears, two mouths and t-wo noses,
with one blazed face and one face solid
color. T. J. Norman and A. F. Jones
have got the hide stuffed, and it still
looks natural. The calf was killed by
dogs, or at least it is supposed to have
been so killed, as the dogs had eaten
its hind legs off when found.
Mr. A A. Combs has a calf with only
Mr. F. L. W. Cohoon has a cow with

There is a negro 16 or 17 years old

That lively Kentucky veteran, Gen
eral Cassius M. Clay, took occasion
during a visit to Indianapolis, the other
day, to express himself as to the South
ern question, which the Republicans
are now doing their best to foment.
Unlike some of the hot and hasty mem
bers of his party in the North, he has
no legislative panacea to offer for the

"I think it wise," he says, "that in-
' ' .
asmuch as the States where these diffi
culties exist, are most interested in
good government, they are the best
judges as to what should be done. I
don't propose myself to dictate any
special action. In matters of this sort
time is everything", w e must
