The following recipe for this disease has been furnished us, and it is claimed that it has proved infallible for 30 years in the family of our informant : 1 gill of apple brandy, 1 gill f apple vinegar, 1 gill of spirits turpentine, and 1 gill 01 honey. Thoroughly mix, and take tea spoonful each hour for adults, less for younger persons according to age. . . ; Fire. " .' " This morning shortly before 2 o'clock the alarm of fire was sounded.

A Model Farm A Goon Sized Melox Patch. "-. v , ' . We spent a few hours a couple of days since at the farm of Col. Thos. B. Long, on the Swannanoa.' This farm is "tle ligbtfully locat. d, with the beautiful Swannanoa running "through it, and the mountains looming up in every direction. Col. Long has been successful in bring ing his land to a high state of cultivation, and now grows almost everything need ed by man or beast. We looked at a thirty racre field of as fine looking tobac co as is doubtless to be found in the Western counties, and we walked through fifteen acres of watermt-lons and cante loupes, of every variety, character and quality; Col. Long has made a specialty this year of his melon crop. He has used for their purpose a sandy bottom, and we don't remember to have seen any finer growth in what has been supposed to be the more favored melon sections. These melons are daily placed on -the Asheville market, six hundred having been brought- into town on Monday. This is comparatively a new enterprise in this section, . and we hope 'it may prove a profitable ono. : ' .- Col. Long and his estimable lady have for years entertained a large number of visitors every summer, but this summer they 1 concluded to rest. He intends, however, -erecting this fall a large hotel on the south bank of the river and im mediately on the railroad, , having se lected a place beautiful by nature and possessing the advantage of innumerable springs of splendid water on the hills immediately behind it; gcod mineral water is aJso in the immediate - vicinity, This will only add another attraction to Western Carolina.

J; ; heclimateTia nrild," -erfpiciall y jIeas ant in summer, the water pure and cool, the atmosphere bracing and invigorating. So! favorably -impressed ; am I with the city and surroundings, that were I ever to change my mind and conclude to live east of the Mississippi I should be great ly tempted to make Asheville my home. ; The country surrounding the town is so cut up.and broken that it is impossible to run a railroad into tb.e town, hence the union depot is situated about two miles distant. Hacks and carriage meetvery train and carry passengers at a reasona ble, rate.; Asheville is the county seat of Buncombe count- and is one of the most important, ci des of Western N: though it has lost much .of its trade and influ ence since 1877 owing to the springing up of so many small towns along the lines of the newly built railroads. , -: , ilf I every) business - has lost in propor tion to' the repotted' loss of the hotels, railroads certainly are a curse to this sec tion of our country. The proprietor of the Grand Central Hotel told me that his register at ; the end of 1877 showed an average ol over 77,000 guesta, while for the past seven years it averages not more than 30,000. -. This is a pretty big tale to swallow: but as the old fellow told it to me with every semblance of truth I must believe it. . :';. , . j Probably, if any of you rader3 have ever heard of Asheville, they have also heard the dreadfully high priced board spoken of; but they should guard against being misled,. It is true that there are some "high, places," and it is equally true that . there are some "low places." iN ear the depot is a hotel which charges 16 cents per meal; up town is a private residence in wuicii iour persons can ub i . .1 A .4 4. ikA . e Offr monrn, eacn. xne tnree noteis, owan- 1 mi . ... r- nanoa.

The government, every year, appropriates a certain amount to pay the expenses of such an encamp ment in each State; but the South has been very slow to avail itself of the ap propriation. This encampment is called Camp Scales. in honor of the present Governor of the State, ,Who will be here m a few days to hold a grand review. There are only. 12,000 soldiers on the ground, but there would have been more had it not. been for the sad accident which happened on the first day. The train which was bringing in the Golds boro Rifies became unmanageable at the head of a fearful down grade and in its downward course threw two of the middle coaches off the track smashing them com pletely to pieces. On these two coaches was the Goldsboro company, and out of thirty-five. only two escaped unhurt none being killed.: To-day the streets present an appearance somewhat like I imagine they did during the war one can hardly look around without seeing a bandaged head, an arm in a sling or a limping leg." One or two statements need a little comment, by way of explanation. The correspondent -was misinformed as re gards the loss ef . trade in Asheville on account of the building np of surround ing towns. This is wrong information. While the whole section is rapidly im proving, Asheville continues to take long strides ' forward-the railroad helping each and every place. The trade of this city the' fmst- six' 'months the severest period of depression ever Known nas been larger than for any corresponding periodin the history of the towiu So far as the fall-off in -the average atten dance at the hotels is concerned, this is easily explained. The immense increase in the number j0f excellent boarding houses in and around the - city has un questionably' tended to reduce the large average enjoyed by the Grand Central and other hotels in 1877; still all enjoy, evidently a large and increasing patron-; age; 1 Some other matters could be ex- filained. but we have not space. : We hank the writer fori his or her pleasant letter, however. : . - ' '!'-r- .... ; v 1 I Elder T, A.

Prominent among the mental traits of Mr. Shuford, and perhaps those., which were most conspicuous, were earnestness and fidelity. .With him school life had a purpose too important to be ignored, and in proportion to his estimate of,, the im portance - of mental training waff, the earnestness with which he pursued this . -T? : - . -11. -1 1 i purpuoe. -livery circumautuce Lxiai cuuiu contribute to his success was carefully appreciated unless forbidden by honor. while the many accidents which so of ten, divert the mind from its original de sign were neither allowed to impede the earnestness with which he labored to consumate his purpose, nor to embarrass his efforts in its ultimate attainment. Earnest in the pursuit of his studies. he was likewise faithful in the perform ance of every duty and m the observance of every obligation of friendship. If the results of the recitation revealed to the teacher earnestness with which! he had pursued his studies and the fidelity with which he had received and appropriated every suggestion, thesocial amenities of the campus revealed in a manner eauallv striking the high esteem in which his friendship was held by his classmates ana companions. ... with mm mere was a sacredness in friendship which in spirea tne same nign ana generous im pulses of fidelity to its claims, as under sterner development led to earnestness and zeal in the discharge of duty. : iew. perhaps, could . look on his face without being impressed with the belief tnat his was a nature too much given to pensive reflection to derive much happi ness irom tne ordinary pleasures of vouth. and to his six companions acting as pall bearers at his obsequies, who had often oDservea the . habitual calm of his tem per, uniformly mild and serene, and the quiet reserve of his manner, must have come the reflection that he could ex tin guish self in . deference to others, and that he could rise to the diemitv of mak 1 ing a real sacrifice for the happiness of hjg friends ; Wo looked on that face, : As each took his place.

Day, met Geronimo's camp, northeast of Nakoc, on Aug 7th and killed three bucks, a squaw and Geronimo's son, aged 13 years. ' He cap tured fifteen women and children, and among, them three of Geronimo's wives, and five of bis children. Geroni mo 'was wounded. Besides the Chief himself only two buckaacd one. squaw escaped. Everything in the camp was captured. On July 29th Lieut. Day am bushed a party of four Chi3k.asaws and killed two of them and captured . their horses and supplies. A few weeks later a Piute Indian was killed by a rnemberOf Washau tribe-. At the time it was be lieved that the affair -would certainly lead to-a war between VUe Lubes. -The matter was amicably arranged. A few days ago a relative of the Piute who was killed, was beaten to .death in a fight with a Washau brave. The excitement among both tribes runs high, and a san guinary outbreak is expected at any time. ' . " JTete l'orfc Stock Jtlarket. . ! . New York, Aug. 18.
