An exchange relates the following good
stories of candidates who thought they had tl
received calls to preach the gospel: ! a;
A young man of African descent offered ! u
himself to the church as a minister, stating
that he had a dream in which he plainly saw tl
p : G. P. C. in large letters, which he interpre- sj
ted to mean, go and preach Christ. A ven- j si

corn and go pick cotton. That settled the w
matter and the church advised the young as- ai
pirant for ministerial honors to follow the u:
vision as interpreted by the venerable brother, sr
A good many years ago John Smith, famil- c<
iarly called "Raccon John," was pastor of
a church in Eastern Kentucky. A half wit- ct
ted enthusiast applied for license to preach, tl
and all the persuasions and efforts of the dea- It
cons and members failed to induce him to Ix
abandon the idea. He honestly believed that (I
he was called. The church was sorely per- tr
plexed when the pastor arrived on his month- tt
ly visit. When the matter was stated to 1c
him, he advised the brethern to let it come
up in conference. At the proper time, the ol
young man, who happened to have large feet, ui
presented himself as a candidate for the min- bi
istry. "My brother," said the preacher, if I tc
prove by the Bible that you are not called to
preach,will you withdraw your application ?" g]
"Yes," he answered without hesitation, n
Opening the Book at Romans x, 5, Mr. Smith jf
read: "How beautiful are the feet of those hi
who preach the gospel of peace." Pointing n<
to the pair of number twelves before him, he ai
added, "your feet cannot be called beautiful,
brother." The argument was conclusive c?
and had the desired effect. Sc
A Physician's Tall Yarn.?On one occasion,
when several physicians had met, the w
conversation ran to the extraordimary things
which a human being might swallow and w
still live, says Youth's Companion. ^
The familiar stories about swallowing silver
dollars, sets of false teeth, and so on had CJ
been related, when Dr. Longbow began to Ql
speak. fQ
"Two years ago," he said, "I was called C(
in great haste to attend a carpenter in my
tAwn t.hnnch the message said that beyond
doubt the man was already dead, for he had ^
while holding a large gimlet in his mouth at ^
his work, suddenly been taken with a fit of
hiccough and swallowed the gimlet. ^
"But when I arrived at the man's house I
found him 'very comfortable.' The gimlet,
gentlemen, gave him no trouble at all to di- L.
There was silence for a moment. Present- jg
ly one of the other doctors remarked :
"With you for his physician, Longbow, C
the man was lucky that it was only a gimlet
that he undertook to swallow." i
"What do you mean ? Jti
"Why, if he had tried to swallow one of ^
your stories it would have choked him to h
death." |V
The Old Judge's Second Marriage.?
An old farmer of Shelby county, a life-long ?
friend and admirer of the judge, met him
some time since on the road as he was returning
home from his law office in the city. The
judge knowing his friend's pronenesa to talk
out in meeting when John Barleycorn was *>'
at the helm, retreated into a portion of the to
coach occupied by a number of ladies, but ai
the old man followed him, and standing in
the aisle, addressed the judge as follows:
"Judge, I want to live 2,000 years."
"What for?" asked the judge.
"Well,""said the old granger, "I want to
vote for you for governor of Tennessee every
two years for 2,000 years."
"But," replied the judge, "I do not wish
to live that long unless my wife can be with
me all the time."
The old man studied a moment, and a
bright idea seemed to strike him by way of P*
"Well, Judge, said he let's give the old i"
woman 1,800 years. You'll want to marry

congressman once lost the vote of an
entire faSnily by his carelessness. He had a
way of saying "I would be glad to have you ai
do so," and one day a constituent, with his
family, paid his respects. The congressman <1*
was biisv. and after some talk the visitor
said: "We will remain in the city several
day8." "I should be glad to have you do y<
so," replied the member of congress as he ra
fumbled a pile of papers on his desk. "We
will come in and see you every now and ai
then," chirped the visitor's wife. "I should
be very glad te have you do so," said the in
congressman. "And bring around our little
boy you haven't seen," suggested the hus- b<
band. "I should be glad to have you do m
so," still said the congressman. Then they bi
arose. "Well, Mr. Blank," said the visitor, bi
extending his hand, "we must tell you good- E
bye and go back to the hotel." "I should be ei

"Then he can pull himself out again. You'll ej

Turpentine is an article so widely used in
le arts and easily obtained that its virtues
3 a domestic remedy have, in a great ineasre,
been overlooked, says the Boston Globe.
In the early stages of croup or almost any
iroat or chest trouble it is well nigh a
jecific. Rub the chest and throat until the
tin is red, then tie a piece of flannel or
>tton batting over the chest moistened with
iw a drops of the oil, and inhale the vapor,
y rubbing on sweet oil, irritation of the
tin may be avoided.
For burns it is invaluable, applied either
ith a rag or in a salve. The pain vanishes
id healthy granulation soon begins. Its
se is at first attended with considerable
narting, but the permanent good more than
>mpensates for it.
Turpentine in which is dissolved as much
imphor as it will take up is preminently
le dressing for laceration, bruises and cuts.
a antiseptic action is equal to that of cardie
acid; it speedily stops the bleeding
lunter says "it is the best, if not the only
ue]| styptic") allays the pain and hastens
te process of healing. Few, if any, ulcers
>ng resist its continued application.
As a liniment, turpentine with equal parts
f laudanum, camphor and chloroform is
nsurpassed. Sprains, rheumatic pains,
:uises, and sometimes even neuralgia, yield
> its magic influences.
As an inhalation turpentine has proven of
eat service in bronchitis, pneumonia, pleusy
and other throat and lung affections,
you have a cough, sprinkle a little on a
mdkerchief and hold to your mouth and
>se for a few minutes, breathing the vapor,
id note the relief.
Internally turpentine has enjoyed for a
sntury the reputation of being a specific for
iatica. Its mode of operation is unknown,
it that it cures stands as proof of its virtue
en drops three times a day in sweetened
ater is the dose.
As a remedy for the bane of childhood,
orms, it is well known. A teaspoonful
ven in a half a glass of sweetened milk,
flowed in an hour or two by a full dose of
istor oil, seldom fails. The practice of
ir grandmothers in giving it to us on sugar
r coughs and sore throat was based on
immon sense.
A bath in a half pint of turpentine and
vo pounds of sal soda in an ordinary bath,
tree-quarters full of water, at 100? Farhenjit,
will cure the itch when other remedies
il. Three or four baths, one daily, are
iually sufficient.
Cotton soaked in olive oil and turpentine
it in the ear often stops earache of the
ost painful kind.
In the hands of the physician turpentine
of great value in typhoid fever, and of
te is used in yellow fever with great suc!SS.
And last, it is a sure antidote-tor piiosiorus,
such as children often swallow when
ley lunch on match heads. Five or ten
:ops floated on water should be given every
>ur till the danger is past. No oily or mulaginous
substauces should be taken. If
le stomach is unable to retain it, it may be
ven as an enema in double the quantity.

Saving Pea Vine Hay.?A Mississippi
>rrespondent gives his method of saving
sa vine hay. Two or three hours after the
ines are cut he has them heaped in piles,
,rge enough to heat. "It will take about
vo days to heat good. You can tell when
ie heaps are hot enough by running your
and in, much better than a doctor can tell
ie conditien of a patient by feeling his pulse,
on't wait until it moulds. When it gets
ot thrpw it out and let it cool one-half of
a hour, then haul and pack it in the barn.
"That is really the only sensible way to
ire pea vine hay. Whenever a man advoitesjetting
it stay in the hot sun until the
aves drop off, and the vines get black and
ack with mould, he simply does not knowhat
he is talking about, and ought to be
lade to sleep with that well-known old fogy
ho goes to mill with a rock in one end of
is bag, and a bushel of corn in the other.
Starch and Starching.?According to
emorests's Monthly, "the most simple,
Fectual and in inexpensive addition to
arch is kerosene, a dessert-spoonful of
hich stirred in two quarts of starch immelately
after the boiling water is added will
revent sticking and be conducive to a fine
uish. The gloss which distinguishes prossional
laundry work is produced by vanis
processes, one of which is to coat the arcles
again and again with thick boiled j
arch, ironing it in as long as the material
ill absorb it, and then polishing with irons
ade specially for the purpose. Collars,
lffs and shirt fronts may be treated in this
ay. Other garments usually require but
ttle starch. Table and- bed linen should
ive just enough starch to be smooth and
ussy, but must not be at all stiff."
To Prevent a Piano from Drying
p.?A piano tuner, who says that pianos
equently deteriorate, because they are aliwed
to become too dry, prescribes this
?medy : Keep a growing plant in the room,
id so long as your plant thrives, your piano
light, or else there's something wrong with
. Just try it, and see how much more
ater you will have to put in the flower pot
i the room where your piano is, than you
>e in any other room. Some people keep a
uge vase or urn, witn u sopping sponge in
, near or under the piano, and keep itmoisticd,
just as a cigar dealer keeps his stock,
hey keep this up all the time the fires are
A Fukjhtnkd Cow.?No man who owns
cow can afford to have a cow afraid of
iin. It is a loss to the owner everytimc she
frightened. To run a cow from the pasire
is throwing money away. The cow is
milking-machine, and should be kept in the
est working condition, and the condition is
tie of quiet. A cow in anyway worried
ill not do her best. Make pets of the cows
nil they will make money for the owner,
lie milk of a frightened or abused cow is
Foit Dandruff.?The Journal of Health
jcoinmends as quite infallible the following
jmedy for curing the tendency to danruH*.
Take borax, half a teaspoon ful; coinion
sulphur, one heaping teaspoon ful; pour
ver it one pint of boiling water. When
doI, pour into a bottle ; agitate frequently
>r three or four days; then strain. Moisten
ic scalp three or four times a week; it is one
f the most reliable preparations known.

Rev. \V. M. Hunter, In A. K. Presbyterian.
This school situated in the town of Huntersville,
N. C., is the steady growth of a
small beginning organized in the sessions
room of the A. It. P. church. The church
was used, as the school grew, until 1882
when a large frame building was erected,
60x25, one story high with rostrum and
three movable partitions.
The enterprise was a joint stock company,
$50 being a share.
It was found that this was too strait. A
new company was organized and a commodious
brick* building projected. Shares
were placed at $100. Stock was taken by
friends in and away from Huntersville.
Commencement exercises were held in
this building in the summer of 1887 and the
recitation rooms were nrst occupied inai
fall. The building is in a retired part of the
town on a lot of two acres of land. There
arc six large recitation rooms three on either
side of a wide passage running the entire
length of the house seventy feet. These
rooms are comfortably ceiled and furnished
with stationary blackboards, much necessary
school furniture has been provided and
additional needs to meet the growing wants
will be furnished from time to time.
The whole second story of this building,
which is filly feet wide, is one large well ventilated
auditorium, with a rostrum eighteen
feet wide stretching across one end. This
hall is well seated and lighted, and is used
for daily chapel services, the declamation exercises,
concerts and commencement exercises.
A double stairway opens to the auditorium
above. This stairway is covered by a
projected roof supported by four large brick
Taken as a whole it is a well proportioned
building, a structure well adapted to tlie
purpose for which it was intended.
The cost of the whole building was not
less than $(>,000 dollars. The school has
the following departments fully organized
and under the care of a competent teacher.
Primary, intermediate, classical, musical,
art, business, military; prizes are offered in
all these departments for the highest grade
thus awakening dormant energies and stimulating
to greater exertion.
Quarterly examinations, written, are held
and a system of daily marks is the basis on
which distinction of scholarship is placed.
The discipline of the school is kind but
firm. Pupils who persistently violate the
law are promptly dismissed.
Young ladies during school hours occupy
a separate room under the eye of a teacher
and are carefully watched over while entrusted
to our care.
The religious advantages are mauy. Daily
reading of the Scripture and prayer in the
school, attendance on which is compulsory.
The village church has a Sabbath-school,
prayer meeting both for the congregation
and young men and preaching every Sabbath.
There are no spirituous liquors sold within
thirteen miles of this place, and there is peritonei
im !n thnro nre mnre liinns
young persons.
The design of the High School has been not
to assume the name of a college nor its functions.
But to act as a feeder to the colleges
of our land and to prepare young persons
for the active business of life. The Huntqrsvillc
High School has made a record of which

Mr. William Newton, of the Barnum &
Bailey establishment, could, we think, give
points, as far as the care of elephants goes
to the head equerry ofthe King of Oudo. We
know now that the elephant ranges over a
wide area, and thrives in fairly elevated
lands near the snow levels. In this country,
and in all zoological collections, lie attains a
fair old age. Their trouble, Mr. Newton told
us, was a tendency to chills. "You had to
be careful how you watered them. If the
water was too cold, they were taken with a
colic; generally a good stiff drink of rum
brings them round."
"And what might you call a stiff drink?"
I asked.
"Oh, a gallon."
"Show any signs of jollity ?"
"Not a bit. As sober as judges. I have
had to blanket serious cases of cramps. I
take as many blankets as I can get, and steep
them in hot water, and bind them round
the elephant; and when he's swaddled up
that way he looks huge. An elephant will
take a gallon 01 OH, or wie sumu ihcubuiv ui
linseed oil. He may be a sensible animal in
some respects, but not in all. If hcipicks up
a nail in his foot, which happens pretty often
he will stop right away and show you his
trouble, and let you take it out for him, and
seem sort of grateful, but he doesn't hanker
after medicine. The way we work him is to
make him open his mouth. The oil we put
in a galvanized iron bottle, and we place
that on his tongue, force his head backwards,
and down goes the oil. No harm ever is
done him with the prods. It takes four or
five hands to make an elephant take his medicine."
I have always remembered a very clever
book of Charles Keade's, Jack of all Trades,
which gave a rather sinister view of an elephant,
and I recall too a great deal of nonsense
written about the cruelty of elephant
prods. It would be absurd to try and manage
an animal of such prodigious powers?
the strongest that we know of?with a riding
switch, and prods are necessities. An elephanticnows
his keeper and obeys him ; may
show a kind of respect, with some little affection
for his master, but he has no liking
for strangers. If I were left alone, with any
show elephant, the keeper being absent, I
should at once want to beat a hasty retreat.
Never, through curiosity or carelessness, get
yourself between an elephant and a wall, or
you may have the life crushed out of you.
The upshot of which is the Oriental mahoots
or American keepers must have prods;
and it is also fortunate for man that elephants
have sensitive ears.
"Quarreling among elephants is not common
but we are careful not to put the males
together. Their tempers differ; the females,
however are rarely cross. Tn certain seasons
we watch the males very carefully, for they
become dangerous. There is an elephant
we cured of a broken leg. It was a long
job. We slung him and used splints and
plaster. Elephants run down in flesh in
summer because we work them, and they are
a good deal knocked about, but in winter I
they pick up. The tusks of the female, which i
are short, have ragged ends, and inflict ugly
wounds. When they are scarred we use
carbolic salve. When they stand for a long
time, we have to cut their toes and the soles
of their feet. We use a rasp and a chisel,
and do not have any trouble."
When at Central Park, Mr. Conklin asked
me to guess the circumference of an elephant's
foot. I was ten inches out of the
way. Taking the tine brute Tom in the
menagerie, the keeper passed a cord around i
one of the forefeet, and its circumference
was 4 feet S inches. ''That,"said thesupci-j
intendent, "ought to represent, when multi-j
plied by 2, Tom's greatest elevation."
Thereupon a second measure was taken, and
Tom's height was !) feet 4 inches. I have
had a circle with this circumference drawn
in chalk on the lloor, and it occupies about
the room of an ordinary teatable. The!
greatest diameter is only obtainable when !
the elephant is on his feet; then there |
is expansion of the massive toes. The books \
give the foot circumference as one of the j
rough ways used in India to get at the height
| of an elephant.?Harper's Weekly.

I always he found that those who do so are

j have nothing to do with horses. It is said,
and indeed with truth, that we are too apt I

as the dominion granted to us over the ani-j

If You area Subscriber to THE ENQUIRER,
We Offer You a Bargain that You Cannot
Duplicate in America?Plain, Straightforward
Business. No Quibbling.
WE congratulate our renders and ourselves
on an arrangement wo have just com- r
pleted with one of the most reliable wholesale "
jewelry establishments in the United States by
which we are enabled to furnish subscribers to
The Enquirer with reliable Watches, manufactured
by the leading American companies, at
Rrices never before heard of in this section,
ow, before going any further, we desire to impress
upon the subscribers of The Enquirer
tiie fact that these watches are not "bankrupt"
[roods, are not sold to close out or anything of
that style, but as we remarked above they are
strictly first class and just as represented. We
wish it distinctly understood that these watches
ire not offered as premiums, nor will they bo
mid to any one who is not a yearly subscriber
to The Enquirer.
This is purely and simply a plan on our part
to give a good tiling to our subscribers if they
want it, and at a reasonable price.
? -? i?j ?i.i 11.. i ,
? iiu vMiiuriL-un Minimum wuicucs, iu? num. umv
keepers in the world, are graded as seven, eleven,
thirteen and fifteen jeweled, full jeweled and
adjusted. Very few men?not one in five hun11?('arrJ'
either mi adjusted or even a full jeweled
watch. There is no reason why any subscriber
to Thk Enquiukr should not nave a
watch carefully adjusted to heat, cold and position,
nor why any subscriber should not have a
trustworthy time-keeper.
TnK Knquihku proposes to make "leaders"
of the five styles descrined below.
No. (i9.'l.?Is a nickel silver bassinc open face
case, which will wear equal to coin silver, fitted
with a 7 jewel American full nicklc plate movement.
This Watch is the equal for wear and time
of a watch many times its cost. The regular retail price
of the watch is $8.50, but we propose to
furnish it to our subscribers for $5.35. If a reliable
time-keeper is all you want this watch will
meet your requirements.
No. (>95.?Is an 18 Size, open face 10 karat gold
filled Montauk case, guaranteed to wear for 15
years and it will wear a great deal longer. It is (
litted with the same movement as No. (>93. The I
regular retail price of this watch is $19.00. We c
propose to furnish it to our subscribers for$12.25.
No. 802.?This a No. 18 size with open face. ?
It has a silver tilled case with screw back und r
screw bezel, which makes them dust proof, t
These cases are made by Joseph Fahys and are s
as durable in every particular as a solid silver
case, the outside or exposed parts being made of t
solid coin silver. This case is fitted with a 15 1
jewel gilt Elgin or Walthani movement, as the t
purchaser muy prefer. Tiie regular retail price i
of the watch is $22.00. Our price is $14.75. This 1
watch is the equal as a tiino keeper ofnny watch r
on the market, and is intended especially for
those who have heavy work to do. You can't i
make a mistake in buying this watch. c
No. 058.?This is a lady's watch. It is a No. r
G size, 18 jewel nickel Elgin movement, fitted to
a genuine "Boss 14 Karat" gold filled case guar- I
anteed to wear 20 years, and will wear much s
longer. If a Waltham movement is preferred to i
tho Elgin, we can furnish a 1 size Waltham t
18 jewel nickel movement fitted to a "Crescent" i
14 karat gold filled ease, guaranteed to wear 20 <
years. Tlio "Crescent" case is equal in every
particular to the "Boss," and tho reason for fur- c
nishing the "Crescent" caso with the Walthhm
movement is that it won't tit the "Boss" case.
The regular retail price of either of these watches
is $40.00. Our price is $24.50. These watches are, ]
indeed, beauties, and any lady may be proud to ]
carry either of them. The cases are what is ]
called a "double" or hunting. i
No. 524.?Is a No. 18 size, Boss hunting, 14
karat gold tilled case guaranteed for 20 years.
The case is handsomely engraved?it is a beauty. ,
This case is fitted with a 15 jewel nickel Wal- ,
tham or gilt Elgin adjusted movement, with pat- j
ent regulator. This watch is undoubtedly one of ,
best made in the United States, and the man who
buys one will have a watch which he can leave |
to his son when he no longer needs a watch. (
The regular retail price of the watch is $50.00.
Our price is $20.75.
For the information of those not familiar with {
gold filled cases, we M ill say that a 14 karat filled ,
case of either the Boss, Fahys or Crescent patent, r
is equal in appearance and M-earing qualities to (
a 14 karat solid gold case. There are probably
live gold filled cases sold to one solid gold case,
which proves very conclusively that a large .
majority of those persons who buy M'atchcs do
not care to pay a big price for the doubtful
satisfaction of OM'ning a solid gold case.
All the above described M'atches are stem
M'iiulers and stem setters, and are in every M*ay
just as represented. Their appearance, in beauty .
of design and finish, is far better than we can
describe. Remember, too, that they are sold to |
you at these low figures because^rou are a sub

muiio is on our books, or a year's subscription
conies with your order, in addition to the price
of the watch, we cannot and will not sell you
a watch.
Another point. These oilers must be accepted
exactly as we make them. As our profits are
very small, almost nothing compared to profits
made by dealers, we cannot lie bothered with
correspondence further than the filling of orders.
Select the style of watch you desire, send us the
money by bank draft, money order or registered
letter, and the watch will be promptly sent you.
In ordering the watches order by the numbers
given in Tick Enquirer. Then we will know
to a certainty just what particular watch you |
All watches are sent, as a rule, by registered j
mail, and in any event we prepay all charges. |
We do not keep any watches on hand, but |
every watch is sent direct from the wholesale j
dealers to the purchaser. It will take, therefore,
from one to two weeks from the time |
you write us before your watch can reach you. |
Each watch is thoroughly tested before being ,
sent out, and will reach you in good condition. ,

The Harrow With Seeder Attachmtont.
Kvery Corbin Harrow, whatever the size, i* arranged
ho that a Seeder can be attached to it.
The Seed box ajid its maehinery are of the moat
ample and eompaet character. All its metal
parts are of malleable or refined wrought Iron.
Its weight i? (of the size to lit the No. 7,12-diak
Harrow) altout eighty pounds.
The Seeder Attachment is removable at pleasure.
It locks itself tirmly to the Harrow mime
by simply putting it into position. Neither bar,
bolt, wedge, key, scrow or pin, is used to fasten
it. Therefore, 110 hammer, wrench or other tool
is required to attach or detach it. Half a minute
of time will remove and one minute replace it.
The Harrow and Seeder combined cost about
half as much as a Drill, and is a better tool. It
will sow grain as evenly as any drill, cover it better,
and place it at any depth in the ground. It
is two complete implements in one. It prepares
the tield in the best possible manner for seeding
imd then sows the rrop. It sows RED RUST
PROOF OATS capitally.
No improved tanning implement has ever
been introdueedlin this section that has received
such universal and hearty endorsement from
the farmers, and they are thoroughly qualified
to estimate its value. If you test it you are sure
to sing its praises too.
You need one to put in that big crop of wheat
and oats you have resolved to sow, especially if v
you want to get it in at a small cost and in a
mannerthat will insure a good yield.
The manufacturers of the Corbin Harrow recommend
the No. 7 12-I)isk Harrow us being
best adapted for general farm work.
