M. de Lipman, represenigite
New York Jouraal, arrived from
Havana to-night. He is thoroughi r
convinced now that Maceeo is not
dead. The authorities there claim t o
have the dead body of Maceo, but for
some unknown reason they will not
Jiow any one to see the body. Be
fore leaving Havana, Lipman offered
$250 for the privilege of looking at
the body, but was refused. He then
offered $500 for th.. photograph of
the dead body of Mace'>, said to be
held. This offer was also declined,
an no plausible reason was given;
whereupon he says that he believes
that the whole story is a fake, and
that the reports .to the effect th i
Mace is alive are true-an opimion
that is shared by many people in Ha
vana, who did not think him dead at
first. People there now believe that

Anthony Comstock, manager of the

Bryan had been sold by Mr. McBlee at
an advance of $25,000 Mr. Mcltee,
who was here to-day, refused either
t confirm or deny the story. Tfhe

"It has been published that we give
Mr. Bryan $50,000 for finty lee urc-,"
said Mr. Comstock; "but the tiuth
about it is that we are to give him a
great deal more. It is a great ven

We are pained to chronicle the re
cent death of Mastcr David Crosby,
son of Mr. W. W. Crosby, which
occured on the sixth inst., after an
illness of two weeks. Our young
friend was in his sixteenth year and
had by his quiet, unassuming and
manly disposition endeared himself to
his mamy friends and acquaintences.
He,had not passed on life's highway
the mile post that marks the number
of his maturity, When an old man
after having passed his three Ecore and
ten years succcmbs to the invincible
Idversary, who disarms alike the
young and the old, his friends accept
the decree with more complacency.
They feel that his race has been run
and i[is li e's work is ended. But
when one di::s who is just enter:ng the
wornic g of i auhood we feel that his
death was two soon for his earthly
aspiration- and for his future nseful
ness to his Master and his fellowman;
but let us hope not two soon for Lis
heavenly felicity. It is alarmint that
so many or our young men die just
as they are entering manhood's cstate.
It is a warning to those who survive
and is but additional evidenco of the
un'.ertainty of life and the certainty
,f death. The deceased was a former
pupil of the writer and thus it is that
He is enabled to give a more perfect
delneatinn of his disposition. His re
.ains were ;onveycd !o Cool Branch
Church and in in the absence of the
pastor the funeral services were con
ducted by Mr. J. F. V. Legg, who
read some appropirate cbapters in the
Bible and made a very impressive talk,
after which the remains of our deceas
ed friend were carried to the church
yard where they were lowered to
their final resting place in the pres
ence of a sorrowing multitude of re
latives and friends. We tender our
sympathies to the bereaved family,
and trust that their loss will be our
dreaccd friends eternal gain.
Mr. Editor most of our farmers are
done picking and :ellii'g cotion. The
small grain is almost all up a nice
stami. Somc of our people have been
e earirg up !and and building, prep;r
atory fo'r anther crop.
DColeman and Messrs. J
hemflbstote at the forks of the
road ucar Miss Sallie Widner's,
they are now filling it up with

and make your purchases, they are.
hustler.s and we trust tbat they will
meet with suceess.
Mrs. Jane Wright who returned
from Louisana some time ago is now
staying at Mr. M. D. C. Colvin's, Mrs.
Wright is a native of this state and
and her many s.iends and relatives
are glad to have her in our midst.
Almost every body is done killing
.>tgs. Mr.*John Stone killed a very
large one not long since, its head
weighed sity pounds. Hle did not
weigh the whyle hog, but as a general
iule a bog will average one hundred
pounds for ev ry ten ponnds cf
w eight in the head. It was the largest
that I have seen.
Christmas will soon be here andi I exc
pect it will be ra..her dull, and ti e
scarcity of money is the great hue and
Iand cry among the people. If the
kind of prices we have had sice Mc
Kinley's election is an inde:x to the
much neede.l prospetity which the
Reublicans have so faithfully prom
ised if ela 'ad, then we cannct promise
ourselves . advance in priecs with
ii the next four y ears.
Mr. Mr D. C. Colvin has three milchi
cos from which he sells about eighty
puds of buttAr per mohtb and has
enough left for home uso. Mr. Co[
yin is one of our most enterprising~
farmers, and is a man of progressive
ideas. While in conversation with
him my mind was ca'led to the atuen
io of what one cow will make if
she averages 1 lb. of butter per day
sold for 20c. per pound which would
be 365 lbs. per year, which amount to
$73.00 per year, If one cow will vield
an income to that amount it is evident
that 5 or 6 would yield an income of
~or $438 per year.
