Th Lenoir Topic B&yat - There is great curiosity . anions the people to knilw "if anything has been heard of Ray and An derson, and we keep on the alert to learn the latest about them. Through a reliable but secret, channel we learn that a friend of Calloway's pretends to have received a letter from him about ten days ago. Calloway is reported to say in that letter that he and Ray are together and that in two days from, the time the letter was written they would be out rf the United States. Bat whether they were on the banks of Rio Grande, Saint Lawrence or Columbia rivers we could not learn. He knew nothing of Ander son and the . other -two fugitives.' This may, however, be only a blind and we give it for what it is worth. "Anchor Brand" Claims thb Prize. Swain county comes to the front with tobacco measuring 78 inches- from tip to tip of opposite leaves. This shows that old Swain is just trying to spread her self on the. new tobacco crop but then she had "Anchor Brand" .Fertilizer to help her.' The above tobacco grows on the plantation of Barnard and Penni niman, near Charleston. These gentle men claim, in addition to the "Anchor Brand," they also applied a good quantity of elbow grease. Swain promises to be well represented at the Fair. - . -..t i Here's Richness for You. The Burnsville Pioneer says : "By private letter we learn that a nugget of gold weighing two pounds was found re-, cently at the Vein Mountain Gold Min ing Company's mine.'in.McDowell coun ty, by Mr. B.

Worrock strikes the keynote in his BurnsviUe Pipueer.ia. tackling- the road question, and urging better roads. What he says for' Yahpey will apply to every other county in this section. ' The road from Asheville to Burnsville ought to be put in good conditionmade per manently good for, winter use as ; well as summer; and if Yancey would move in the matter we "believe Buncombe, or at least those of her citizens directly in terested in this road would cheerfully meet her half way". And it will hot take Such a great amount of money either; so little, indeed; that we believe it can be raised without special trouble, -and the advantages of the expenditure will be more the first year than the outlay can amount to.
