Observer says: Six hundred young men represent ing the ounsr Men's Christian Associating of the State of Xew York, met in annual convention in the First Presbyterian church of Auburn, February 18-21. In the personnel of the men, and the earnestness shown in their participation in the delibera tions of the conveation, they presented without exception as five an example of young man hood as could be gathered to gether. From the report of the but Committee it was shown that this organization, now grown to a magnitude of almost unlimited power for the reach ing of yeuug men, has a mem bership in the Empire fctateof nearly forty thousand. Of the one hundred and forty-eight organizations, forty-one build ings have been socially erect ed or provided for their Ub, and the total valuation of these aid other property amounts to $3,307,474.

Is it any wonder some of the farm ers are melancholy. What is the value of hog-raising in this I age? Some seem to think that it is cheaper to buy western ba con, but there never was a greater mistake. Our people will never ,be independent and ; happy until they ratse their own supplies. The cause of hard times is plain. There are to day hundreds of farmers in this section whe do not raise enough t to dd them six months in twelve, i and as a consequence they are : in a poor condition! Some bay I. lM Kkcokdeii is silly on the quts of farming knowing no more about farming than a I cow knows of the binomial the i went. Well, that U too awful : but we do know what w talking about; we get this in formatiouJromthttirnirn lirm right here, in our 'dice, on the street and in the country. In saying these thingi it is not in . tended as a blow at the farming interest, far from it; we can't I live without the farmer they f are the salt of the earth, So frCity, town er community can , I exist wUhout the farmer; and f we inquire after their interest 4 , when they call upon u, and be- sides we have friends in dilrer i ent sections that will keep us posted in the future.

' "Wake snakes! and come to taw." We thought there must be something coming last Thurs day night it was a fearful night Our coon, the boy that turns the crank in this office bought some "love powders" in the evening, Friday morning it was very cold, the boy looked sleepy; and when asked what was the matter, he answered in a hoarse whisper, "Take out dem love powders, deys enough for me; (lis nigger couldn't lib wid 'em." The following picture is a good representation of . the boy on Friday, as he sit hugging tne stove. The Caswell News savs: The thunder-burst last Thursday morning seems to have aroused the torpid creepers from their long wintry nap. A colored ac quaintaace informed us that he Lad already killed four, one of them, a "powerful bigmoccasin that showed fkht." to use the darkey's descriptive phrase. Several others have been re- Eorted this season, although it as not been a rood time for snakes either. The same in formant reports cutting down a tree in the woods few davs ago which had no visible sign of a hollow near the roots, but in cutting up the tree a hollow was struck inside of it. when out leaped a frog as "large as life and just as nutural." .Now. the question arises. How did it get there, and how long had it probably been imprisoned there? Verilv. "There are more things ia heaven and earth, Horatio, than is dreamt of in our philosophy." Cliauee for Everybody to Make Money No man objects to monev. but there are but few who seem to realize that to acquire it de mands constant attention to ev. ery detail. of expense and ex penditure. I arm products are low, in fact prices for every thing the farmer has to sell is discouraging. Labor is scarce and hard to command, end when had must be paid crop or no crop. The stringent state of monetary affairs, it seems grad ually grows worse. disaoioint. ment year after year is heaped upon our farmers, until a good crop at paying prices is a thing that now-a-dars rarelv comas. If the crop is good prices are low. If prices are good, there is but little to sell. Since such is the stato of affairs, the people have but one resource, that is to make up in economy what is lacking in receipts. If the hand that reaches out to take comes ia almost empty, let the hand that disburses the hard-enrned dollars be cartful what it turns loose. A little system and fore thought in thifc matter will turn many a man' "cloudy days" bright and full with bows of promise. Everything bought should be bought at the lowest possible prices. Low prices should not govern without ref tsrence to quality, for that would . H,K. t'cono,nyi but tho two should be combined.

Simpson Copley Killed Sand Mangled by raln. , Another man sent into eternity, by a running train, while under the influence of whukey. Simpson Copley lived about threei miles from town, on the Bigsbee place, not far from the O. & C. rail road. ; lie was in town, yesterday, and from the testimony at the inquest, he imbibed pretty freely, and start ed home on his wagon. When near the railroad crossing he full from his wagon and his horse, with the vehicle, proceeded on down the road. Mr. Copley crawled across the track on his knees, and when last seen was sitting up against a telegraph pole. This was about three quarters or an hour before' the Keysville freight went out from Durham, and it was then getting dark. The freight went out about 7:30 or a little after, and when they reached that point, the train was suddenly stopped, having air brakes it was so sudden that some of tne paasen gera, in a coacn attached, were knocked out of their seats and one of the train hands, so we are inform ed, was thrown from a car, but not injured. The engineer discovered that be had run over a man. The discovery was too true. Simpson" Copley was found on the side of the track dead; the engine, tender and one box car had passed over his legs, mangling them in a terrible manner. His back was also mangled. His neck was dislocated, and his face split open. Coronor N. M. Johnson was notifi ed and summoning J. II. Atkins, W. E. Young, W. H. Holt. W. A. Mark- ham. J. B. Lowery and W. D. Strick land, as a jury of inquest, went out on tho O. & C. train to the xue of the terrible accident. After e.xaniin- itig several witneoseaf from the testi mony of whura we gather the above facta, the follow vi rdict was ren dered: The verdict of the jury is, Copley was very drunk and came to his death on account cf being uncon scious by whibkey and was killed on the R. R. track was run over and killed by a train. No blame is at tached to any one. This verdict was signed by the jury and the coroner. Mr. Copley's remains were interred this afternoon, at 3 o'clock, at the f Aiivily burying ground of his" uncle, Wm. Copley, deceased. He was about 44 years of age, and leave a family of several children, the youngest Uir.g about two years old. He was a hard-working man, and his ncighlmrs and landlord had the greatest confidence in him. His only fault was that he would get on periodical sprees, and be had bwn warA-d time and aguin about travel ing along the railroad. IU JRecalrrd Ilia Model. Maj. W. A.
