Only thoee who knew her best in all lift's relations can realize whit the community in which she lived, this church and the dear ones that so much loved her. have lost in the death of this devout Christian and loving wife. We know how much she will be missed from among us; but we must submit tj the Divine Will, knowing full well that our sister has parsed from this life of trial and suffering to one of peace and happi ness. Our hearts go out in tender sympathy with the dear ones left behind. May the gentle spirit of our departed friend lin ger lovingly near us and whitp -r to us sweet words of comfort ar.d hope tea con us onward to a nobler life here be low and upward to that home not made with hands eternal in the heavens.

Jas. H. Young ; therefore, be it Resolved by the colored people of Johnston county, in mass meeting as sembled. Do now humbly petition the General Assembly, in session at Raleigh, the capital of the State, through our Representative, Hon. E. S. A bell, to urge the passage of the education bill, offered by Hon.

The entertainment given under the management of Rev. James Deans, Pre siding Elder of the A. M. E. Church, was a very creditable one, indeed. The solos sarg by Miss Annie Malone and Mrs. Mag gie Cook were excellent indeed. The duet by M'-esrs. Stephen Bullock and Thomas Alston was very catchy. They deserve great praise. The essays by Mrs. Hettie Bullcck, Mrs. Nester Eison and Miss Theodosia Home were very pointed and ii btructive all through. Miss Carrie Ar rington rendered a very nice recitation, as also Mrs. Frazier read a very nice se lect reading. Mrs. M. M. and Miss Ara Col b rendered some excellent music. Rev. Deans was organist, and he per formed with great ease. He is an excel lent musician. Rev.

Mr. Cowpey L. Ed wards was doorkeeper, and you could not even get a peep inside without a ticket. When some of the Republican Repre sentatives return to their constituents down east how will they explain to them the failure that they have made. Sup pose they may be asked a few questions like these : "Mr. Representative, did you not prom ise to offer every possible bill thas would bring relief to Tour people?' (Rep.): "Well, yes, so I did." (Conat): "Well, why did you fail to succeed to pass any of them?" (Rep.): "Because I was too extreme. My associates declared war against me and I could not get a bill of any kind through." (Const) : " Why did you not, after see ing you had made war upon yourself, seek to restore confidence and secure the influence of those who opposed you and still carry out your promise to your pe j ple?" (Rep.) : " Well, I am not of that kind." (Const): " Djjou think that such men as you are, whom the whole people, or ratber all of the Representatives, are op posed to, should be returned again? Do vou think you could ever succeed if re turned?" (Rep.): Yes; no one else is worthy. I am the only one fit, and if I don't go I'll split the party." (Const): "But the people will not have this split business any more, from the fact that they know,unle8syou use Democratic money 3 ou cafi not get far on this line, so you may get left." (Rep): 'Ob, no; lean foci them just as I have done heretofore." Const): "Mr. Representative, you promised too much to do nothing. You should crawl under the cover and say to your people, 'I did not mean it; oh, no, I did rot; forgive us, please." W. S. A. Memorial. Victor Fire Company. March 3, 1897. Whereas, The Great and Supreme Ruler of the universe has, in His infinite wisdom, removed from among us one of cur worthy and esteemed fellow mem bers Robert W. Williams of the fire department, of which he was so long a member; And whereas, long and intimate rela tions with him in the faithful discharge of his duties makes it eminently befitting that we, as firemen, record our apprecia tion of him: therefere be it Resolved, That the wisdom and ability which he exercised in the aid of our or ganization by service and counsel will ever, be held in grateful remembrance. Resolved, That the removal of this brother fireman from among us leaves a vacancy and shadow that will be deeply realized by all the members and friends of our organization. Resolved, That in deep sympathy with the bereaved relative of the deceased, we express our hope that even so great a loss to us all may be overruled for good by Him who doeth all things well. Resolved, That a copy of these resolu tions be spread upon the records of this organization, a copy be printed in the Gazette, and a copy sent to the bereaved family. J. J. Alston, - Wm. H. Palmer, R. H. Sorrell, Committee. Prof. L. A. Whitted. Chapel Hill. N. C, Feb. 23, 1897. . Pursuant to a call by Hon. Nelson Cald well the citizens of Chapel Hill met at the Congregational Church to hold memorial exercises in honor of our late friend, Prof. L. A. Whitted, who. departed this life a few days ago. Rev. L. II. Hackney acted as chairman of the meeting, and George W. Pearson secretary. The services were opened with music by the choir, " Thy Way, Not Mine," and prayer by Rev. Anthony Peden, of Oaks, N. C., after which the audience and choir sang very toucbingly, " Come ye, Discon solate." The chairman, Rev. Hackney, then spoke of his very pleasant relations with Mr. Whitted, both as students in Shaw University and as citizens of Chapel Hill, after which Rev. Peden was intro duced to the audience as the first speaker of the evening. He spoke of Mr. Whit ted as a teacher and uplifter of his race. Prayer was then offered by Rev. John Caldwell. The choir agin sang, '"When Peace Like a River." Hon. Wilson Cald well then addressed the audience. Among other things, he said: "We shall miss Mr. Whitted on the streets, in the school room, and in the homes, for. he was the best man he had ever known." He was followed by Prof. P. L. LaCqur, who spoke in very high terms' of his friend and co worker. Ago in we were favored with music by the choir. At this juncture those of the audience who desired were given the privilege to speak. Among those who re sponded, were Messrs. Amos Anderson, John Caldwell, J. J. Jones, E. D. Allen, William McDade and William Flanner, who made very timely remarks in respect to the beloved dead. The committee on resolutions was then appointed, who submitted the following: Whereas, God in His wise providence has seen fit to remove from our midst our friend and fellow-citizen, Prof. Lon don A. Whitted; and whereas we, the people of Chapel Hill, shall feel deeply the loss of so excellent a man; be it Resolved, That we, the people of Chapel Hill, have lost one of its best citizens, whose place it will be hard to fill, and that his influence for good in this com munity has been an inspiration to both old and young; be it further Resolved, That we extend to the be reaved friends and relatives of our de ceased friend our heartfelt praj ers and sympathy in this hour of affliction, and that we point them to '.hat One alone who is able to heal all our sorrows; be it also Resolved, That a copy of these resolu tions be sent to the family of the deceased, and also that a copy be sent to the Ral eigh Gazette and Hillsboro Recorder. . P. L. LaCotjr, Anthony Peden, Wilson Caldwell, E. D. Allen, Basil Jones, Committee. A motion was then made to erect a monument over the grave of Mr. Whit ted, and a committee to solicit funds for this purpose was appointed. Committee: Rev. L. H. Hackney, Messrs. Wilson Caldwell, Jesse Kirk land, William Mc Dade and William Flanner. The services were ended by singing, "I Shall be Satisfied." The music was beau tiful and soul stirring. The music was furnished by the three choirs of the city, Miss Lucy Cordal pre siding at the organ. As the music rose upward and our soula caught the inspiration we thought of the boys and girls into whom he had infused the principles of womanhood and manhood. We thought as Ingersoll, " That if each bright face were to pass, if each loving hand cast a flower, he would rest tonight beneath a wilderness of flowers." Rest on, thou sainted dead. We, too, have joined the innumerable caravan, and ere long hope to draw our mantles around us and lie down to peaceful slumber. Until then, we say, may our lives be as bene ficial to those by whom we are surround ed, as unassuming as helpful, as grand and glorious. G. W. Pearson, Secretary. Halifax, N. C. Mr. M. W.

Latta Unsversity will be closed during the Christmas holidays for all the session for the purpose of rebuilding the build ings that were consumed by fire last May, and also additional buildings. The Uni versity is located in the village of Ober lin, N. C , one and one-half miles west of the capitol building in the city. The lo cation is the very best for a school, being out of the busy city, but within easy reach by means of the electric streetcars. It is enough to say, that there has not been a single case of serious illness since the establishment of the school. Each dormitory is heated by stoves and hearths, so every necessary comfort is secured. The terms are very reasonable $7.50 per month. Those desiring to reduce their expenses by work will be taken at the lowest possible rates: young men $6.40 per month ; young women $5.40 per month; day students $1 per month.' A small incidental fee will be charged. The school will reopen on the 7th day of October, 1897. Our purpose is to make it one of the largest schools in the South for the race. Law and Medicine will be added. The institution is wholly non sectarian in its religious instruction or influence. Yet earnest attention will be given to Bible study, applying its truths to daily life and conduct, that a. thorough Christian character may be obtained. It is open to all students of either ' sex. None but competent teachers will be em ployed. For further information, address the President, Rev. M. L. Latta, D. D. I will leave for the North and Europe the latter part of December or the first of January, and will return time enough to have buildings completed by the re opening of the school. The University will contain eight buildings. dec. 5 6 m. "Father Bruin AND HIS Little Son."

Side lines and Pinhook prices do not indicate a prosperous business. We do not advertise Cheap Goods. We have them in stock and sell when asked for, but in the language of Uncle Moses Salter, "It flings a -dampness" on us to show them. We would rather sell one dollars' worth of nice stock than two dollars' worth of poor stuff at the same rate of profit. We rely upon the quality of our goods to build up and keep trade. We have the best of everything in our line, and it is a great satisfaction to exhibit it. Our prices are as low as such goods will afford, and we are not afraid to compare price lists with any house, North or South.
