The "bolting" idea iseo sanctified
now that true-blood Reformers should
be ashamed to dig into the ribs of
brother candidates about what they call
Haekolllsm, Teller took the advice of
Tillman and away he went and Tlllman
is a friend of Teller, while Tlllman
put up a first-class argument in favor
of his own going in case Free Silver
should fall to go. Now all good Re
formers swear by Tlllman and there
should be an end of scolding about
bolters. Now, Democrats (sooallod)
in this State have but one candidate to
ohooao from In the matter of a Comp
troller, a State Treasurer, Secretary
of State and Attorney General. So the
good orthodox voter must swallow
these slated gentry for another term,
good, bad or Indifferent. There are
other Instances of such Washlngtonlan
worthiness that none daro oppose tho
aspirants. For tho lofty places?the
positions of Governor and Senator,
however, there is in oaoh case a trium
virate of giants before us. Wo have
returned thanks before this, notably
for Whitman, but surely wo arc blessed
in the matter of a field full of aspirants
for Governor and Senator. While or
dinarily there might bo complaint
that we have not tho State to choose
from, the severe rules by whioh wo are
"oablnncd, orlbbed, confined" to tho
two fields of illustrious competitors
should glvo no body unbrago. They
will prevont wabbling. And thon
where there is only ono to choose from
the voter Indeed Is saved all troublo,
the ehoieo Indeed, as It were, bolng
made for tho voter. We should bo
thankful for this. Wo would still have
further reason to thank somebody If
the Senatorial and Gubernatorial can
didates could bo sifted down to one by
some convonlont slight of hand, and
tho voters saved tho trouble of making
a oholco. Besides It would, ollmlnato

Mr. T. Cunlngham Is a candidate for
the office of Olork of tho Court for
Chester county. On Thursday last he
gave a great barboouo, to which the
entire public was Invited. Four thou
sand pounds of barbecued meats were
nerved, and six thousand participated.
Up among the Tar Heelers, Zeb Vance
acting as Solicitor, prosecuted a sinner
for tho larceny of an ox; the evidence
was overwhelming, but tho man was
acquitted. Tho great North Carolinian
asking the foreman about it, re
ceived answer: "Zeb, don't you know
that overy man on that Jury got a part
of that boef." The moral Is plain and
the other fellow who Is running for
that office should havo his congratula
tory remarks in readiness.
The law of gravitation Is Inexorable
and Invincible Per consequonco you
will not see tho pending campaign with
the ponding porsonel assume a moro

gravitating will bo recorded as the
campaigners gradually recodo from
sea levol and approach the crest of tho
Blue Ridge. Fortunately they cannot
level that by assimilation.
And now a chorus of sympathy goes
up for poor Bon Tillman on his "bust"
at Chicago. You may kill a cat
with your sympathy. Men should be
made of sttrnor stuff, but thoy aro not.
The Populists assemble in National
Convention at St. Louis on to-morrow.
They will swallow Bryan and Bewail,
with a platform of their own.
And now Senator Tillman's apologists
say tho galleries wcro packed with
Gold Bugs to hiss democrats. Bryan
was not hissed; therefore what is Bry

The first result of tho Chicago nomin

Nobody would risk Tillman's coat-tail
at Chicago. - It was "bob-tail" without
rag and tag.

announced at Rabun Creek church

sired. In,the afternoon, Col. J. H.

Harriot Beochor Stowc's Last Letter.
The last thing written by Mrs.
Harriet Stowe, only a few daysbe
| fore her death, was a loving
acknowledgement to the public for
fond remembrances and tokens
and expressions of affectionate es
teem, on hor 85th birthday, which
she sent to The Ladies Home Jour
nal. In the next issue of this
magazine it will be published in
fac simile. It reflects the beautiful
nature of the glftod authoress and
by her death has become her last
message to the American public.
Last Wednesday Henry T. Butler
rode out in a top buggy towards
Glenn Springs. He carried a negro
with him. As he was returning he
received a severo electric shock
while passing under a telephone
wire that was hanging low. The
top of the buggy came close to it.?
He heard no loud report but a sort
of whizzing, rushing, rasping sound
and then he knew nothing for a
short time. When he came to him
self tho horse bad gone about 150
yards and stopped. The top of the
buggy and tho seat were considera
bly shattered. The iron franco of
the top was bent in several places.
Mr. Butler was severely hurt in
ono leg and on tho opposite side,?
It was a remarkable freak of
electricity and a very narrow es
cape for Mr. Butler. ? Carolina

MEN, who hold the purse strings, often deprive women of articles
of inestimable value. The wife pleads with her husband for
a Piano or an Organ, which is tenfold more essential than the
cigar and other luxuries in which he indulges. The daughter
asks father, or guardian, to buy an Instrument to enable her to
cultivate that beautiful talent, music. Does any sane man not
relize this a reasonable right to plead and ask for? Rellect a minute !
Think of the means expended for instruction, and the many tedious
hours employed in* practice by wife and daughter, and of their glowing
anticipations subsequently to be realized.
Now, father, husband, or guardian, are you going to blast all
these bright anticipations by denying them of this merited right?simply
the gift of a Piano or an Organ?
Give your wives and daughters their merited rights in the home,
which is "Woman's Kingdom," then she will cease to clamor for politi
cal suffrage. Don't plead inability when such liberal terms and prices
