Stated the Facte. The editor of an Indiana paper become tired of being called a liar so he announced that he would tell the truth In the future. The first issue thereafter contained the following: "John Bonln. the laziest merchant in town, made a trip to Bellville yesterday." "John Coyle, our groceryman, is doing a poor business. His store is dirty, dusty and noxiously odoriferous. How can he expect to do much?" "Rev. Styx preached last Saturday night on 'charity.' The sermon was punk." "Davie Sonkey died at his home in this place. The doctor gave It out as heart failure. The fact is, he was drunk, and whisky is what killed him." "Married?Miss Sylvia Rhodes and James Conhan, last Saturday evening at the $aptist parsonage. The Driae Is a very ordinary town girl who doesn't know any more than a jackrabbit about cooking, and never helped her mother three days in her life. She is not a beauty by any means, and has a gait like a fat duck. The groom is well known as an up-to-date loafer. He's been living off the old folks all his life and don't amount to shucks. They will have a hard life." The paper had no sooner reached the public than a committee was sent to him bearing a petition asking him to continue in the good old way, and stated that they believed him to be a truthful and honest man.?Burlington News. Talks op Marriage Fees.?Contrary to the habit of most bridegrooms, this one sat talking to a curate who had Just performed the marriage ceremony in the rectory of a church that has a reputation as being a haven of refuge for those who wish to become husband and wife in a hurry. The bridegroom kept an anxious eye on the $20 bill he had given the curate and which the clerg/mar. '?ad left on the table. Finally the couple departed. "What was that man waiting for, Henry?" the clergyman asked of the old caretaker, who had witnessed the ceremony. "His change, sir." "His change? I don't understand." "I told him the fee would "be $15, sir, and he was waiting for the five." The curate, who was temporarily attached to the church for the summer months took his tip from this, and the next time a prospective bridegroom asked him what the fee was the curate replied: "What did Henly tell you it would be?" "Ten dollars, sir. But I've only got Ave." "Oh, well," broke in the bride-to-be, "rather than be disappointed, I'll go the other Ave," and she promptly produced It from her stocking. Delicate Discouragement.?A Cortlandvllle (N. Y.) man recently said of the late Col. Daniel S. Lamont. who was born there. "Lamont had always a pleasant and tactful way. I once applied to him for a Job for my son. He couldn't, do anything for the boy, but he put me ofT delicately and told me to break the disappointment delicately to the lad. "This talk of delicacy and gentle, kindly putting off reminded Mr. Lamont of a Cortlandvllle happening. He said there was once a poor young chap in our town who fell head over heels in love with a farm girl. The young chap's love making was very seriously conducted. Sometimes it seemed successful, and he was gay. Then it would seem rather hopeless, and he would get a fit of the blues. "In a fit of the blues one night he confided to a friend. " 'I'm afraid there's no chance for me,' he said. 'In a delicate way that girl is discouraging my attentions to her.', "'How Is she doing it?' the friend asked. " 'Oh, mighty delicately. She told me yesterday that she was a twin, her mother was a twin and her grandmother was a twin.' " Bund Justice.?The late Captain "Joe" Nicholson, to memory dear in Detroit, used to tell of a long time prisoner who had been in the house of correction while the captain ran that institution, says the Detroit Journal. JUsi oeiore nis term expuru mc convict called the captain and told him that justice was now done and that an honest man would start fresh in the world. "But you have told me several times that you were innocent of the charge on which you were sent here." "So I was, Capt. Joe, and I can prove it. Here are the names of three witnesses. Get their statement and see whether I'm lying." Just as a matter of curiosity the captain compiled and found convincing evidence of the man's Innocence. The convict was called In and indignantly asked why he had not used his evidence in getting a new trial. "I'll tell you, captain. In my time I was acquitted three or four times when I was guilty, so when I was convicted of something I never did I Just thought I'd even things up by taking my medicine without kicking. Besides that, it sort of tickled me to find that justice had missed me at every shot." All Happy Birr the Lamb.?At the dinner which George Harvey gave In New York in honor of M. Wltte and Baron Rosen, a young Russian officer was seated beside H. H. Rogers. "I admire your country," said the Russian, "because it Is so peaceful. Politicians, financiers, the laboring classes, business men, ministers?all dwell amicably together, one happy family." Mr. Rogers laughed. "One happy family," he said, "Yes; such a happy family as P. T. Barnum, our great showman, used to exhibit. "This family consisted of a lion, a tiger, a bear, a wolf, and a lamb, all penned together in one cage. " 'Remarkable.' a visitor said one day to Mr. Barnum. 'Remarkable, impressive, Instructive. And how long have these animals dwelt together in this way?' " 'Several months,' Barnum answered, 'but the lamb has occasionally to be renewed.' " When Labor Did Not Tell.?A home missionary who visited Sing Sing prison took occasion to have a heart to heart talk with one of the convicts. "Don't you know, my friend." said he, "that crime never brings success? It is only achieved by hard labor." "I did six months of It at a stretch once, said the convict, "and I didn't come out no richer than I went in."? Exchange. iHisceUanrous ilfadmfl. IN COUNTIES ADJOINING.

LANCASTER. Ledger, Sept. 30: Mr. E. K. Hines, the venerable father of our esteemed townsman, Mr. H. H. Hines, died at the home of his son on Cemetery street Thursday afternoon, September 28, at the advanced age of 76 years. Mr. Hines has only lived here about two years, but during that short time he has won the highest esteem of the community. He was a gentleman of the old type, high-toned, honorable, dignified, courteous in manner, withal a fine character of Imposing attraction. He was a native of Dublin county, N. C? and was married in 1861 to Miss C. L. McMurray. Three sons were born to tiiem, all of whom, with his widow survive him. His sons are: Messrs. J. L. Hines of Dunn, N. C.: H. H. Hines of this place and Ed Hines of Roland, N. C. Mr. Hines served in the Confederate army as quartermaster through the war and was the special courier to whom important papers were turned over at Fayetteville to be conveyed to Raleigh to the governor. His remains were interred in Westside cemetery yesterday afternoon after funeral services conducted at the home by Rev. Chalmers Fraser and Rev. R. E. Turnipseed. . ...On Wednesday afternoon, September 27th, at 3 o'clock, at the home of Mr. and Mrs. L. C. Lazenby. Mr. J. Walter Culp, formerly of this place, but now of Gastonla. N. C.. was married to Miss Lily Miller, daughter of our late esteemed townsman, MaJ. B. F. Miller. The impressive ceremony was performed by Rev. R. E. Turnipseed, pastor of the Methodist church, in the presence of the immediate families of the bride and groom and a few special friends. After receiving cohgratulations. Mr. and Mrs. Culp left on the L. & C. train for an extended bridal tour north Mr. J. E. Creed's store and stock of goods at Heath Springs were destroyed by fire about 3 a. m. Wednesday morning. The fire was of incendiary origin, and the supposition is that the store was robbed and then burned to cover the crime. Some goods, Identified as goods from the Creed ?iu re, were iuuuu luiiLfuitu in ?. thicket near the toVn. A negro who stole a cow from 3111 Rutledge the same night of the fire is suspected as the incendiary. Mr. Creed's loss is fully $5,000, with only $1,500 insurance. Only a few months ago Mr. Creed suffered heavy losses by fire which destroyed almost the entire business portion of the town. We are told that this is the seventh time he has suffered loss by fire. Since the above was put in type the negro. Wm. Drakeford, Jr.. who stole a cow from Bill Rutledge the night of the fire, has been captured and on his person was found a pistol, some smoking tobacco, matches, etc., identified as being from the Creed store. The negro, seeing he was trapped, confessed to both crimes and implicated a young white man and another negro in the burning, but later exonerated both and they were released. Both, however, could establish an alibi. Drakeford is now in jail. He says that he wanted some candy and prized open the back door of the store to get it; but failing to find any he ate some sardines, helped himself to tobacco, matches, etc., and was going out when he noticed a pile of papers near the door and applied a match to them. There is strong suspicion that he is the party who set fire to Mr. Creed's store several months ago, causing the disastrous fire which came near destroying the entire business portion of the town Mrs. Ida Broom, wife of Mr. T. W Broom, of this place, and a daughter of Mr. H. A. Scarborough, of Dee county, died here Thursday. September 28th, after an illness of about one month. She was about 32 years of age.

Mr. Feltham resided here a year or more while the big cotton mill was being constructed and was one of the architects who supervised its construction. He made a great many warm friends here.

Latest Fashion Notes Carefully Glean* ed By One Who Knows, From the Most Approved and Authentic Sources, For the Special Information and Instruction of the Lady Readers of The Enquirer. ? Smart white linen coat suits for autumn wear have collars and cuffs of black velvet. ? Embroidered waists are to be used again largely this winter, both in the lingerie effects and In silk and satin. j ? The Empire coat varying In length from waist length to full length Is the most popular model for a separate coat. They are made of velvet, broadcloth or satin, and eyelet embroidery often finishes the collar, cuffs and even the border of the deep yoke. ? The Empire style of skirt which Is fitted up above the waist, making a corselet effect, is much seen in the new models. Over this Is to be worn for the street a short jacket which completes the costume, a waist of chiffon or lace being worn for the house with such a skirt. Many of the long coats are also In this Empire style. ? How many of the women who bought dainty hats of lace, mallne or chiffon for summer wear will think to use them for afternoon reception and evening wear this winter? There is little difference In the chiffon evening hat for winter and the chiffon hat for summer, and if the latter has been little worn and is fresh enough It can be made to do double duty. ? A velvet collar Is a foregone conclusion upon almost every coat, whatever be the general nature of the coat. The long coat, the Empire coat, and the bolero vary widely in line, but all have this one feature in common. The waistcoat showing above a coat cut rather low Is much liked by French makers and Is used not only with coats, but also with draped bodices, while the basqued coat has a decided vogue. ? Exquisite little collar and cuff sets are found in numbers in the well-selected summer outfit. One of the most noticeable features of the new cuffs is the increased depth, due to the change of the modish sleeve. English eyelet, Irish crochet, Irish point and filet come in a variety of shapes and all so attractive that one scarcely knows which to choose when the number to be owned must be limited. CufT pins of lavender enamel are new and wonderfully pretty for such little things. Some of them have pearls sunk In the middle. The green ones? the enamel is transparent, which lets the gold glow through?are even prettier. New gold cuff pins come in odd twisted shapes some of them made In lmitatiotn of the old English hand-engraved styles. ? The Directoire style of loose effects in the coats is much in evidence when one considers the street jackets or wraps belonging to suits. Few are exactly close fitting; they have often the cut of a yoke with gathered or pleated lower part. Little capes and broad collars are fashionable, often with trimming of fur or of lace, on the evening cloaks. These long evening wraps are as loose as ever and entirely conceal the figure. The sleeve arrange merits are often merely drapery and very graceful and original. These cape like cloaks bid fair now to be about as much in favor as the shaped ones, especially for evening wear, when one wants something loose enough to go easily over an evening gown which is apt to be somewhat fluffy. They are delightful warm and comfortable. ? The length of the new veils varies from a yard and a half to nearly four yards. The width may average half a yard. Favored materials are chiffon. Brussels net embroidered, blond lace, Chantilly and, less frequently, expensive forms of real lace. In color the drapery veil conforms to the season's fashions. Since white hats are much the mode, there is an enormous output of white veils. Pale blue, lavender and other delicate colors are abundant, while the vivid tints of the autumn, the brilliant reds. purples, green, bronze browns and bright blues are copied not only in chiffon but in dyed laces. For black hats there are magpie veils, for plaid costumes there are plaided veils, and for the. numerous many-toned fabrics so much in vogue there are changing colors in veils and scafrs of blond and chiffon. ? Flowers are very much worn in the hair this season, and roses take, of course, premier rank. Clusters of two two or three blossoms are often fastened into the colls on either side. Ornaments of all kinds are, in fact, employed in coiffure decoration, and among the new combs the Jeweled and enameled varieties are increasingly popular. Wreaths of all kinds are much used for evening wear. For the hair, wreaths of tiny flowers, ending in two points in front, are favored. Larger flowers are also used. A wreath of scarlet poppies is most effective on black or dark brown hair. Holly will be popular later on, but this means very careful arrangement and should only be worn when the hair is abundant. It has, however, the advantage of looking well with dark or blond hair, and even with the dull shades. Combs for the hair are increasing in value, and elaboration and many most beautiful ones are being shown. For morning wear those made of plain tortoise shell are considered the better taste. The 1 wealthy number many beautiful combs, thickly studded with gems, but there are other combs infinitely more becoming and more within reach of most people. Tinted horn with delicate traceries of gold is shown in artistic designs. ? All sorts of supple cloths are high in favor for every sort of use. Wiry and soft finish alike are good, provided they are supple and have a fairly 1 smooth surface. Hairy cloths?zibelines and their kin?are used very , sparingly, and mostly for separate coats. The new herringbone suitings 1 are stunning, especially those of gray. Both the definite and indefinite herringbones?like the checks, only in the weave?are good. Mohairs have taken a vigorous new lease of life for shirt- 1 waist suits. Covert cloth makes hosts of separate jackets and coats, and ( whole suits as well. There's a darker shade than the usual pale tan we're 1 most accustomed to which bids fair to i be wonderful popular, and a whole lot | more serviceable than the lighter shade, which shows every spot. Broadcloth promises to be first and foremost for I the dressier sort of clothes. Suits and | separate coats, evening coats and cloaks, and the prettiest of both afternoon and evening dresses?those ] with a little air or dignity about them i ?are made of it. As a consequence of j the present interest in broadcloth, new, ' beautiful shades of colors have come out. made still more beautiful by the 1 satin sheen of the finish. Of course, j all broadcloth used is the sort that was y achieved a year or so ago, robbed of all its old time stiffness, and made 1 supple and light in weight. t BURBANK THE PLANT KING. [Continued from First Page.] demand. He said the contract was worth hundreds of thousands of dollars, but he was compelled to decline it because It would keep him from other work that was of greater importance. Instead of accepting the fortune the Frenchmen offered him. he gave them some seed, and told them to raise their own flowers. Half in complaint, half In congratulation, he explained that it was Impossible to patent a flower or a vegetable or a tree or any kind of plant He considered this Injustice. Authors can copyright books, manufacturers can protect their inventions, but botanists have no way of securing: the results of their labor and study, and must share them with the world. But he said he did not care. The fame and satisfaction he enjoyed were all he wanted. His future has been provided for by the Carnegie Institute, so that he is perfectly free to work out his ideas without considering the important matter of bread and butter. Mr. Burbank says that he made an independent fortune In the nursery business before he went into scientific research. Then he began to run behind about $1,600 a year until his savings were exhausted and his home was mortgaged. He did not know what to do; he could not abandon the work he was engaged in; he could not go back to a commercial basis. The state university offered him a professorship, but he declined it. Then Judge Morrow of the United States district court, who is one of his most devoted friends, arranged with the Carnegie Institute to give him a subsidy of $10,000 a year for ten years. "At first I was disposed to decline it?it seemed such a large amount," said Mr. Burbank. "I feared that I would not give satisfaction and was afraid it would tie my hands. But the Carnegie people relieved me of my embarrassment. They give me the money?$2,500 every three months? without any strings attached to if and without any conditions. They do not restrict me or Instruct me, and do not even make an accounting, so that now I am perfectly free to work cut my experiments without thinking of the future. I have nothing to worry about or give me anxiety. "I have quite an expensive establishment. nine acres here and fifteen acres more six miles from town. I employ eighteen and sometimes twenty gardeners. I have correspondents all over the world sending me new things and keeping me posted as to what other men are doing. All that has to be paid for. I have to issue catalogues. The Russian government alone exhausted my supply of catalogues last year. My postage bill is $50 a month. I receive an average of 150 letters a day, asking all kinds of questions?how to raise children, how to preserve fruit, what kind of windmills I use begging for seeds and slips and flowers, asking for all kinds of horticultural information?and, of course, most of them want my photograph and autograph. It would take a large sum of money to supply photographs to the people wno ask for them. But the money Is not so important to me as the time. Every moment Is precious. I have been fifteen years trying to get a few days' vacation, and the greatest favor you could do me would be to ask the readers of your paper not to come here or to write me letters." And that was the last word. As we bade him good-by at the gate I Inquired If there was anything I could do for him. "No," he replied, In a tired voice, "except to tell people not to come here to see me and not to write me letters. I'd like to see everybody and write to everybody, If I could, but I can't. It would take all my time." That is strictly true. It Is also true that Mr. Burbank could make ten and twenty times the Income allowed him by the Carnegie Institute If he would put his affairs in the hands of a competent business manager to stand between him and the public. His garden is filled with novelties In plant life, fruits, berries, vegetables and flowers, which would command big prices. He could get anything he asked for them. But he is thinking of something else. He showed us an empty bed In his garden, and a pile of withered plants, which had been rooted from it the previous day. "Those plants might have been sold to nurserymen for thousands of dollars" he said, "but they had been cultivated purely as an experiment which had not resulted to my satisfaction, so I rooted them up and threw them away." He tries to conduct his affairs on a business basis, but he does not know how to do it. He is easily Imposed upon and is as trustful as a child whenever he encounters an interesting person or problem. Hundreds of people break through all the barriers by which he has tried to protect himself and defy the warnings he has set up. His secretary or his servant, who answers the doorbell, requires every visitor to fill out the following blank: I Visitor No Date I What Is your business with Mr. I I Burbank? For whose benefit is this interview? Your name? I Your address? I ) Remarks All visitors are limited to five I Minutes unless by special appointment. Mr. Burbank's work Is of such a nature that he cannot well be interI rupted. I But that does no good. It is perfectly useless as a protection. If a caller gets Mr. Burbank interested in explaining anything he is an enthusiast; or if he can tell Mr. Burbank something that the latter wants to know, the interview may last for an hour or two or for all day. Mr. Burbank is a Yankee. He was born in the village of Lancaster, near Worcester, Mass. His mother's family named Ross, were nurserymen, and his uncle. Luther Ross, had the most famous grape vines in Massachusetts in his time. Burbank's father was a mechanic, with a good deal of inventive genius, and the boy Luther inherited it. At 16 he was placed as an apprentice In the shops of the Ames Plow company at Worcester, and made rapid progress. He invented a laborsaving improvement in woodworking machinery which Is said to have been valuable. But his health was delicate, and the doctors" told him that if he vanted to live long he must get out of he shop and work in the open air. He ook refuge in his uncle's vineyard. where he found joy as well as occupation, and within a few years invented the Burbank potato, which you can now buy In any market in the United States. His health did not Improve much, and the cold winters were too severe for him. So with the money he got for his potato in 1875 he came to Santa Rosa, in the heart of the Sonoma Valley, one of the most beautiful and fertile sections of California. Here he has remained ever since. He bought a little piece of ground and started a nursery, which turned out to be very profitable. He made money rapidly. uio ovmiuthv with the hntunlml klnar dom was such that he could do almost anything with seeds or cuttings, and he became a plant breeder. His first Important production was the Burbank plum, which is now grown all over the world. It Is a combination of the best Japanese and the best American plums; It is more hardy, produces better and has a finer flavor than any other variety. Cecil Rhodes bought 10,000 trees from Mr. Burbank and transplanted them to South Africa. Then Burbank revolutionized the prune business. He found the California people growing the common French prune, which, when dried, was chiefly pit and skin, tough and often tasteless. By grafting and crossing and other processes familiar to nurserymen he produced the largest and finest prunes ever known to the world, and 160,00 000 pounds of them are now shipped annually from Santa Clara valley and other parts of California. He has accomplished many other results of great commercial value In berries, flowers, vegetables, and fruits, and, as Mr. Aiken said of him recently In an article In the Sunset Magazine; "Wherever 'the round world over" men know flowers and fruits; know of their origin, their development and their creation, there Is Luther Burbank recognized as a man of wondrous power. He has done things. Like that soldier hero, who, at the outbreak of the Spanish War, carried this nation's message to Oarcla. Mr. Burbank, without flourish of trumpets without asking for fame, has been quietly at work for years at his home farm near Santa Rosa. Cal., developing and making fruits and flowers. Patiently, tenderly, enthusiastically h# has worked with such results that all men who know them give him the highest honor and praise." William E. Curtis. Magic Tree In Burmah. A banyan tree, it Is said, has been discovered In the village of Chaung galay-Opo, In the Pantanaw township, Maubin district, very unlike any other banyan. First of all, it grew up In one night and not from the ground but from the trunk of another tree, a lelngbin termlnalia blalata. It is as big as a man's arm and Is rapidly growing round and round the other Just like a creeper. We are told that it Is of gold, or at least has all the appearance of pure gold, so much so that all the persons who came to see It, wishing to make more of the fact, cut little bits of it with small knives or scratched It with their finger nails, and always with the same result?that Is, that the interior of the trhoo tho qqmo cnlrlari blip nfl the bark, but the little bits cut oft soon become white. Near Its upper end, or summit, there Is a cavity, and from It Incessantly flows a continuous stream of pure water. ' It has Indeed been discovered that It can cure all the diseases humanity Is heir to, of which the Burmese reckon ninety-six principal ones, branching off Into many hundreds. The news of wonderful cures was soon all over the district, and believers from every town and village came to see and worship the miraculous banyan. The water is carefully put Into bottles and other vessels and stored up for future use. Although thousands of persons drink and take away the water every day, there is no sign of Its diminishing. On the contrary it Is said to flow more and more steadily. tr It Is the fool who sits down and cries for the moon. The wise guy gets busy, and tries to appropriate the earth. rt^When a young man proposes and is accepted he seems to walk on air, but shortly after marriage he discovers that he can't live on wind alone.

TOBER 17TH, and will include offers as liberal as have been made for sev- . eral years. The competition will be J open to all who desire to enter and on exactly the same conditions to all. The price of the paper In clubs is $1.75 per annum and clubmakers are expected to pay this sum for each annual subscription returned. It has been called to our attention that some clubmakers are offering the n paper for less than $1.75. When they do so It is on their own responsibility E and without authority from us. They are required to pay us $1.75 In all cases. E Where a clubmaker prefers to work for a commission instead of for a pre- " mlum, he must have a previous distinct understanding with us to that effect and he must agree not to accept any p subscriptions for less than $1.76. v The price of a single subscription at J this office to other than clubmakers Is strictly $2.00.
