Foxes. Our friend of the Milto Chronicle
tells a story of a fox race of sixt, miles or
more. He ought to advise the unters to
get better dogs, for instance, slue of the
Edgecombe stock. A party oi entlemen

Morals. Two gentlemen wre on our
streets a few days ago discussing the vexed
question of ethics, when one ngaarked that
he always taught his son both 4des of the

This is to a certain extent correct, for
every citizen should endeavjr to sustain an

Edmondson's big hogs.
Mr. G. G. Gill of FrUiklln County has fed
21 persons every yur since the war and
has not bought a pourd of bacon or a bush
el of corn, during the while lime. He has
not sold a bale of cotttn la 4 years and has
his entire 4 years crops rn band. He says
farmers who wish to he independent, should
raise their own supplies.
We are inclined to think Mr. Gill would
have made more monty if he had sold his
cotton while prices weie high and bought
pork at almost any price. His raising his
own poik is, however, to be recommended.
Bests. We would call the attention of
property holders to the rents demanded in
our community, ranging from 10 to 30 per
cant, upon the valua of the property. The
great desideratum In real estate is its secu
rity, and nowhere is it expected to pay
such profits as temporary investments or
where the capital is subject to various risks:
Hence, if money is bringing 8 per cent, on
loans with personal security, it should not
be expected that real estate would realize
more than six after deducting insurance,
taxes, &c We hope this subject may meet
with consideratien from property holders,
for we have no doubt that persons are de
terred from settling among us an account
of rents beyond their power to pay.
Duel Stopped. Our readers wiH recol
lect, that more than a month ago cards were
published in this paper by Capt. Wm. Biggs
and Dr. L. L. Staton in reference to the al
leged purchase of the Southerner, in which
personalties were freely indulged. It seems
that since that time a correspondence had
been kept up between the two gentlemen,
and on last Sunday both, with one or two
gentlemen as friends, were missing from the
community, nnd their object being surmised
a warrant wes issued upon affidavit and a
specially appointed officer set out to arrest
them. He succeeded in reaching Rocky
Mount, whore the parties were waiting to
embark, and arrested Capt. Biggs, who was
taken before a J. P. and recognized. Dr.
Staton having given him the slip, but return
ed home that night. Thus the duel, if any
was intended, has been stopped, and peace
reigns in W ai saw.
" Have a Drisk 1" This is such an an
cient and venerable way of showing gener
ous hospitality and sociability that it is a
pity to be compelled to forego its askiug or
acceptance, as cold water men are forced to
do. We therefore suggest a plan by which
every one can ask his friend to take a drink
without violence to his conscience, or to his
stomach in the way of 'aimmon beer. It is
this : let it be known that there was a place
in town, where a person could go any time
of the day and get a good, No. 1, hot cup of
coffee, Mr. Spragins' for instance, and, our
word for it, it will be abundantly patronized
by drinkers of spirits as well as temperance
people. There is more genuine and lasting
stimulating effects, without intoxication, in
coffeu than almost any other beverage. Let
some ons try the experiment of a coffee-house
pfer rather than take nauseous
medicine; and this is not to Le wondered at,
as ijrie remedy is often worse than the disease.
Sufferers from coughs, colds, influenza, sore
thtfoat, or tendency to Consumytion, will

A Complihest. 'Though often used In
terchangeably, we hold that there is a radi
cal difference between a compliment and
flattery, the one being a friendly commenda

is sweet to every one. And especially is a
compliment to be prized when it is from

two papers have been united under an Edi

We hope our friends in .Edgecombe and
the surrounding country will now rally to
the support of their paper, thus enabling its
Editor to eive them an organ, such as he is
competent to edit, and which will be at once
a source of pride and an honor to them.
Give the combined paper the patronage of
both the old ones, and more, and we are sure
that the Enouirer-Southerner will return in an
hundred fold In substantial benefits all that
may be done for it.
We congratulate our friend upon the
strength which the combination gives him to
labor for the advancement of his people, and
we trust be may do so successfully for them
and for himself, knowing that he appreciates
the responsibilities and will improve the ad
vantages devolving upon him.
