comments on several gentlemen of the Press
at the recent State Fair.
The show of trotters was slim and unin
teresting. But the show of newspaper men
was large though not pretty. Woodson
was the ugliest and your esteemed reporter
the cleverest. Stamps would have been
the best looking, had he not taken his august
features out of repose in trying to smile on
a girl on the grand stand. She was look
ing at another fellow, and disappointment
soured his visage. The most philosophic
was Avery of the Piedmont Press. He is
the man who, on the retreat from Peters
burg, told his servant to throw away his
overcoat, knap sack, everything, lint rtick

Orn Dhama. The second appearance of
the Tarboro Thespian Corps for this sea

grand success of the first effort augured a
full attendance, which was realized when
the doors were opened.
The piece performed was " The Nick of
the Woods," a piece of rather too heavy
metal for an amateur troupe, but the for
men successes of our Thespian Corps has
given it boldness, which also counteracts
and generally ensures success. The prin
cipal character, the Jibbenainosay, was
played by Mr. W. It. Ricks. It was one
of exceeding difficulty, being on the heavy
tragic order, but was earned out in a very
happy style. Mr. Ricks, though a new star
upon our boards, is rapidly becoming one
of the public's favorites. The lady ac
tresses were the same as in the last piece
and, we hope, fully sustained the stand
they have gained in the estimation of the
The only new character of note in Tues

Essay, clearly demonstrates, from a thirty
years' successful practice, that the alarming
consequences of self-abuse may be radically
cured without the dangerous use of internal
medicine or the application of the knife;
pointing out a mode of cure at once simple,
certain, and effectual, by means of which
every sufferer, no matter what his condition
may be, may cure himself cheaply, private
