Now is the time to subscribe. very prominent minister there was induced to head what he thought was a petition for a charitable purpose, and on the strength of his signature the name of almost every reputable citizen of that place was signed to the document. It was then presented to the county court, and, being in regular form, passed, as a matter of course, without any attention being paid to it, and the first intima tion the minister bad that a joke had been perpetrated was when he received notice that his ap plication for license to keep a saloon had been granted and would be issued as soon as pay ment therefore had been made. Of course this was only a joke, but cases of this kind happen all oyer the country when prominent men recommend dif ferent objects without knowing what they are doing and in this way the public is swindled. "KILE Oil KCIX." The motto of gold men is rule or ruin. They would split their party to pieces if they could not rule it. This fact was demon trated at the recent Democratic State Convention, which nomi nated almost the weakest set of men they could find to lead the party. It was impossible to nomi nate men in favor of gold so the agents of the Wall street crowd went down to Raleigh deter mined to nominate men that would split the party and while they were well tangled up Mc Kinley might capture the State. Kope Elias, from the western part of the State, boasted while in Raleigh that Mr. Cleveland bad told him not to let things go wrong down here and that he had come to the convention With TWEKIV-TWO KF.VEM E OF- ftCERS AS DELEGATES. Now isn't this a pretty state of affairs? Mr. Cleveland, a "gold bug" telling Mr. Elias, another "gold bug," not to let things "go wrong" down here, and be making this kind of a boast. A set of gold candidates could not be nominated, but this agent could assist in nominat ing men who could not be elect ed, and thus throw in men who favored a single gold standard. The people of North Carolina, the south and the west, have teen slaves long enough. It is now time for action. Vote for men who cax be kleoi tu and who are in fator of sii,vf. as a money. This is the final strug gle. Will they lorn or win? CAKK MHOl l.lf UK TAKE. It is getting fco that our nH citizens will sign almost any petition that is handed them without even knowing what it is for, and in that way a great may unworthy objects is coun- tenced and encouraged by men, who, if tbey would take the seconed thought and entuire in to the matter, would not think of doing such a thing. , A popular illustration of a case of this sort happened in an Ohio wn not loDg since. A "OX TO 1UCHMOXD!" The famous and well-known cry of "On to Richmond" has again passed from lip to lip, from one old war Veteran to another, wbo fought four years in tl e "Lost Cause" a cause they believed right and a cause for which they were willing to lay down their lives on the altar of their country as they hur aied on yesterday to the Capital of our Southland during the late and desperate struggle be tween the States. This time, though, thank God, it is a cry of peace and not one of war. It is a cry raised when the North and South stand hand in hand and ready to de fend each other against all comers. But "peace hath her Vitiras, no less renowned than war," and today the eyes of the entire country are turned t Rich mond, where the corner stone of a $2000,000 monument will be laid in memory of that gal lant leader whom we all love Jefferson DavK May it stand until "Time is no more," ever telling the tale of love for one who believed he was right and who clung to that principle as as long as he lived. ' Durham is well represented in this grand gathering. The "R. F. Webb camp of confed erate Veterans" left yesterday about two hundred strong These old patriots looked as happy as if they were boys go ing on their first excursion. Let them be happy. They deserve it. The Herald wishes them one and all a pleasant trip and safe return to their homes. And when the last long roll is "called yonder" may they all answer "here!" and again be united under the command ot their old and gallant leader. TIIKllK IM NOTHING NKW. Changes on "the new woman" are still being rung with' weari some iteration, and often in an offensive manner. It makes us tired and it seems now that it is time to call a halt. The appli cation of a New York lawyer for a divorse fiora a tyrannical wife is the latest occasion for this sort of pleasantry. It appears, from a slight in spection of this hew York law yer's complaint, that he is a pusillanimous creature. No manly man would endure such treatment as be sari he has borne. And a man who would submit to it for a week would desere it for a lifetime. He complains that he was compelled to find his unshared dormatorial accommodations in the garrief that when his wife had com any he was not permitted to fume to the table, and that he was forced to take care of the babies his own and the callers' while his wife entertained company in the parlor. All this was bad enough, but it was not the fuii measure of this man's wo's. Jie might have borne his solitary vigus in the garret. might have found life endurable even to a man shut out of the diningroom and compelled to tend babies in the kitchen, but a greater indignity at last aroused his anger, and be fled to the court. The crown ing out rage was reached when he was compelled to hand over"aII mon. eys and property" to the head o the family. These are thereas ons why this limb of the law wants divorce and alimony. The chances are ten to one that there is another side to this story, but, supposing it to be true, it presents no , novelty This wife is not a new woman but one of an ancient type; aud this husband is a fellow who needs bossing. TWO OP1XIOX8 OP CV WATSON, Senator Butler, in speaking of the nomination of Cy Watson for governor, among other things said: "Two men who have struggled ten years for a place on the State ticket de clined to be put in nomination They see no chance for victory, As for Watson, he is a good man. He has been hunting long enough for an office." Judge Russell, the Republican nominee for the same office Mr. Watson hopes to get, paid him a compliment, as follows: "I know Mr. Watson very well. 1 have met him at the bar an 1 tried cases witn nim, and I re gard him as a strong and able lawyer and, one of the brainest men in North Carolina, .vhich is equivalent to saying that he has one of the best minds in the United States." A SITCCESSFL'Ij COLLEGE. Trinity College advertises in this issue. The past year has been a year of great success in college work. Trinity College is reaching and influencing the in tellectual life of North Carolina to a marvelous degree.

BKGl ILED A LOVER, A unique violation of the pos tal laws has been developed at New Orleans, rostoffice inspec tor in charge of that division, re ceived a complaint against Mrs, Sophie Hoffman, a widow of Aus tin, Tex, charging that some time ago she beguiled a young man of another state by letter writing to fall in love with her. Photographs were exchanged and marriage agreed upon. Pro bally unaware that she was vio lating section 331 of the postal laws, relative to using the mails for improper purposes, she re quested her fiance to send railroad fare and a sum for other neces sary expenses so that she might meet him and be married. The money was sent and from that moment, the young man claims, the widow was "as mute as the harp that hung on Tara'i wall. The deceived man put the matter in the hands of the poctoflice authorities and Satur day Mrs. Hoffman wos arrested at Austin by In.ector Woods and is now in jail. Ll!ATIO All IXVKXTOIM. A Londer letter to the St. LouU KepubJic myt: "A lunatic asylum is about the last place try one would search in for ingenious and valuable in vention, in't U 7" said the resi dent physician of one of'the larg est of these institutions. "We have a patent in the asylum now who believes he is shut up in the old fleet prison for the national debt. In the Lope of raising the money to pay this Irifls off and obtain bis releese, he has for the last two years devoted his poor hrain to inventing things, fctrange to say, among a ' host of , utterly absurd ideas, he actually has produced two which are really practicable. His friends and I have supplied him with such harmless materials as he requires, and he has just finished a simple automntio contrivance for the head of a lawn tennis racquet, to pick up the balls and abolish stooping. It acts perfectly well, and: I'm so -convinced there's money in it that I've advised his friends to secure a patent for bini incase he becomes cured. His other invention is of a different kind, beiug a really efficacious preventive of seasickness. "It's very simple; two of its components are iu every kitchen and the rest in every chemist's shop. I have successfully tested it myselt on two occasions recent ly, when crossing the channel in every stormy weather. ' 'HK XEEIW XO HELP." The annual baccalaureate ad dress lefore the graduating class at Trinity college was delivered oyDr. J. C. Kilgo at "the com mencement this year. It was a grand address and since that time his words have been continually going the rouud of the press. The following paragraph (delivered at that time) has been copied and commented on by papers through out the length and breadth of North Carolina and we reproduce it for the great thought it con tains: "I was born a poor boy and expect to live a poor man. The hope of the world is in the poor boy and. he needs no coddling at the hands of any one. He has made the old world. lie has written our poems, cirved our sculpture, constructed our cathe drals, thought out our philoso phy, written our literature, de veloped our science, and con structed moral and religious sys tems. He needs no heln." LIVE WHILE YOU LIVE. The following is from the pen of A. M. Lord and well deserves the space that we give it: "Live with all your might, ith al your mind and heart and soul Live to the utmost of your power up to the utmost verge of life, Make your life rich, strong, wise, happy; take into it all that nature or books or friendship or tender memories of great hopes can give you, and then let it pour out as freely as it pours in. Live as if life were exhaustless. and vou shall know its exbaustlessncss, Live for others, and from others, and you shall know how God lives in you, for you, with you and yours forever." "As an instance of the clever ness of lunatics, it may interest you to know that a very valuable improvement connected with ma chinery, and now in daily use everywhere, was inventor by the inmate of an asylum well known w every one oy name. As he is now quite cured and is a some what prominent man, I won' mention any details; but his in vention, designed and modeled as diversion while absolutely insane, has since brought him in thousands of pounds." The surest way for a man to be robbed of a good name is to write it on his umbrella. We are constantly being asked when and wbete will the judicial republican convention meet. We would thank the chairman for the above information. There is nothing in the South . . . mat is more conducive to its growth and progress than the press, says an exchange. Like great beacon fire, it furnishcj the intellectual light by which the public can discern that which will ultimately promote its best inter esls and general welfare. Tnc stork is one of tLo most faithful birds to her young that is known. In fact she is more faithful than any other creature living to her off-spring. It is aid that a stork will perish in the flames of a burning build ing rather than desert her young and seek her own safety. ' The first crematory wns estab lished in this country in 1876, There are now twenty-six in ae tive operation. The number of bodies incinerated up to this time is reported at 3670. ; Dan Roberts, colored, who was to have been hanged at Aiken, S C, last Friday, cheated the gal lows and did not hang. By some means he procured a knife and committed suicide by cutting his own throat. ' Frof. Starr, of Chicago, on a trip to Gautemala discovered a species offish which haa four eyes. The fish swims with one pair of eyes above the water and one pair below, thus being able to see in both elemcnti. The largest grape vine in the world is located near the old town, Carpenterit, Cal. The trunk is at least, three feet in di ameter near the ground and the limbs are as large as the noted vine in Montecito. ( As attempt was recently made at Elsenthal, Germany, tosee how soon a part of a tree could be con verted into a newspaper. The tree was felled, reduced to pulp and paper, and after two Lours and twenty-five minutes the news paper made from it was ready for the readers. There was a good deal of sound human nature in the unexpected reply of the dying old woman to hr minister's leading question, "Here at the end of a long life which of the Lord s mercies are you most thankful for?" Her eyes brightened as she answered Myvituals." , A newspaper published in an Oklahoma town, where the wo men recently carried the elec tion, sent the following order to a supply bouse: "Pleas send us one small cut of a hen. Women carried the election here, and suppose we will have to swing out a hen instead of a rooster.'' There arc two ways of attain ing an important end force and perseverance. Force falls to the lot only of the privileged few. says Mme Swetchine, but austere and sustained perseverance can be practiced by the most iusignifi cant Its silent power grows irresistible with time. A condemned murderer iu H Louis the other day utilized lit gallows on which he wa to be banged before the sheriff iot ready to officiate. Toe night be fore the execution he crawlti through a sewer to the scaffold climbed that, jumped to the brick wall, from that to the ground, and lit out. The Richmond Times, gold standard paper, advises the silver men to drop silver and take up state banks. Drop nothing says the Wilmington Star. Stick to free silver and state banks, too, The gold men Lave no more idea of giving us state banks, if they can help it, than of giving us free silver, nor as much. The Raleigh News and Obser ver says if anything could fully show the earnestness of the North Carolinians for free silver it would be the performance of those people wbo listened for three hours to Senator Butler last Thursday night in Wil mington. They had evidently made up their minds to die for their cause. Mr. Butler ought not to ask too -many sacrifices of his followers.
