entertainment of humor nnd pathos at

tioeuisued lecturers appetred under the
auspices of the Y. M. C. A. and a Krge
aod appreciative audience was offered a
moat clel.gutful literary trial. Mr Bur-
bink introduced tbe programme, by way
of an explanation that tbe authorized
programme was chasing the lecturers
about the county somewhere, and in
view of this tbe protiramn.e in tbe bands
of the audience would not be strictly ad
hered to. Mr. Burbank recited a brace
of numbers, tbe first being a dramatic
poem by Rudyard Kipling. "A Ballad of
tbe East and the West," and a French
dialect recitation, "The Wreck of the
Julie Pian." When Mr. Nye appe ared
he was greeted by a perfect ovation and
be entered at once in his peculiarly
original and droll way in to a discussir.n
of tbe "Pecularities of the State of North
Carolina." This recitation, as was tbe
remainder of the reading given by Mr.
Nye during the evening, teing selections
from bis own worta, while those of his
colleague were selected from the pro
ductions of standard authors, Dxkens
and Irving, and were a blending of pathoa
and wit, interspersed occasionally with a
apicy. original selection, both speakers
being obliged to respond to frequent re
calls. Keen at th. Ho-el.

Stnalce Predicament That Andrew
Kite lite la la It Keinalaa to tie Settled .
A peculiar case, and one that happily
is not often found is j jst now in Mag
istrate Wivill's c nrt for settlement. As
stated in Thb Aboos yesterday, Andrew
Ritchie ia under arrest, charged with a
serious crime by Minnie Johnson, a girl
not yet of age. As a natural consequence,
when young Ritchie was arrested he ex
pressed his intention of doing what is
proper in such cases, namely, have a
marriage ceremony performed. To do
this be, being under age, sought the con
sent of her parents, wbich was readily
ottained, and yesterday morning was set
for the time. The girl appeared at the
time set and 'was willing to have the
ceremony go on, but her parents did not
appear uor would they consent to the
marri-ige of their daughter with young
Ritchie This put & decidedly different
appearance to the case and it was again
postponed until this morning in hopes of
inducing tbe girl's parents to allow the
young couple to be marred. Today
fonnd tbe matter in the same condition as
yesterday, tbe young man was brought
up to Magistrate Wivi.l's office, but the
girl's folks did not appear and he was
again taken to the armory He has now
been locked up 49 hours, wuile he is
willing and even anxious to amend
matters as best be can ind yet is not
permitted to to so.
Tbe mij -sry or the" law is a
great thing at times, but here is
case where both parties are willing to be
married and vet are prevented hy a
branch of the same law that seeks to
have the young man make amends for
his wrong aoine.
