The apointinei of Hon. A,
S. Merrimon to be an Associate Jus
tice of the Supreme Court vice Hon.
Thomas Ruffio, resigned, is a wise
one anil seems to give entire satis
faction. An editor in Georgia says :
"Gold i fouud in thirty-six counties
in this State, silver in three, dia
pyonds in twenty-slf and wbitkey in
all ot thorn, and the last getH away
uith all the rest." k
We thank Secretary William,
( f the North Carolina Agricultural
Sicioty, for a ticket to the Annual
Fair to be. held in Raleigh from the
l.')th to '20th of October. The' pros-
pec's for a fine exhibit are good, and !
no doubt a large crowd will attend. !

quake in tbe ;sland of Java are slow
in reaching this country. It if, so to 1
peak, at me other end ot the world, j
and the means ot communication are
not reliable or rapid. But it is
known that the first reports of the
loss of life fell far short of reality.
It in now thought possible that 60,
000 persons may have perished.
Two inhabited islands sank under
wnter, and the sea swept over large
town- m.l a long Hue ot coast
There will, no doubt, be intense suf
fering among tbe survivors, whose
cultivated lands have been devas
tated either by the action of fire or

Probabfy the fastest train in
America is the afternoon express on
the Canada Atlantic Railway, which
leaves Coteae Station at 5.35 and
reaches Ottawa, dnttrot 78 miies, t
7.09, having made one stop of three
mi tin les at Alexandria. Thia ia al
most exactly fifty miles an hour.
The fastest train in the world is
probably the "Flying Dutchman,"
which runs without stopping from
London to Bristol, , a distance of
11811-4 miles, in just two hours a
rate, of 59 1-8 miles an hour.

Courage is; a noble trait 'With
some it requires greater courage, to
live than H does to die. When dis
ease racks lb frame,, whenf sores
cover the person, when aches are in
every joint, when the muscles are
soft and flabby, when the least exer

The Mayor had Albert Satter-

ored, before him last week for fight
ing. Satterfield paid 810 and Free-

have caused the difficulty.

Mr. D. W. Whitaker has sold the f
Person County News to a company
of gentlemen from that county who
propose to publish it to the very
best interest of its patrons. We
wish them much success.
Reidsville Weekly : Our farmer
friends in this section have been
sorely pressed this year; first' with
the drought which prevented the
full growth ot their crops and now
the latter rains which prevent tbe
saving of the little made in spite of
When you get to talking about
raising children, always look to
North Carolina. The Hickory Car
olinian says : Mrs. Bryant Huffman,
of Onslow cocnty, has a babe whic
weighed only -two pounds, clothes
and all, soon after birth. At one
month it weighed 2 1-2 pounds.
Mr. Huffman has married twice and
has been blessed with 23 children.
The Wilmington Star tells us that
in that city there are two , girls and
a boy who are perfect albinos and
their parents are negroes. The skin
of these children is perfectly white.

Beaufort Telephone : We have in
this town a colored man who is as
much of a prodigy as the veritable
"Blind Tom." His name is Zacb.
Taylor, born in Carteret county, of
parents who were slaves, is thirty
three years ot age, never went to
school in his life, and yet he can
build a mill, repair a watch, tune a
piano, or print a newspaper. The
most remarkable gift he has, how
ever, is the ability to repeat Scrip
ture, which he can o for hours at a
time without making a mistake.
There isn't bis equal in North Caro
lina'or in tbe South, for that matter.
. , Morganton -Mountaineer : Among
tbe convicts who are at work on the
Ducktown branch of the Western
North Carolina railroad ia. an .old
negro named Joe Hicks, whose time
has expired long ago, but who likes
the fare and treatment he gels there
so well that he sticks to bia post and
does the same amount of labor that
he did before he bad served out his
term. -KHd Joe,w as they call 'him,
has built an odd looking, hark hut on
the mountain side near the works,
where he sleeps; his only-companion
being a 'peV bear ; tba. 'shares hh
meals , and his bed. He keeps 'a
flock of. chickens and turkeys, and
makes-a little pocket money by sell
ing these to ' tbe railroad men. He
likes) bis business, and is as happy ias
if he were Governor of .the State.
ADVICE TO MOTHERS.
Are you disturbed at, nigh Land
broken ot your rest by a sick child
suffering and crying with pain of
cutting teeth ? If so, send at once
and get a bottle of Mrs. Winslow's
Nothing Syrop for Children Teeth
ing. Its value is incalculable. It
will relieve ihe poor little sufferer
immeaiately. . Depend upon it,
mothers, there is no mistake about
it. It cures dysentery and diarrhoea,
regulates the stomach and bowels,
cures wind colic, softens- the gums,
reduces inflammation, and gives tone
and energy to the whole system.
Mrs. Window's Soothing Syrup for
Children Teething is pleasant tolbe
taste, and is the prescription of one
of the oldest and best femsle phvui
olans and nurses lh tbe UhTted States,
and is for sate " by all druggists
throughout the world. Price 25
ceaU a bottle. :
The most diusiiuj ihing we ,
know of is the use of profane lao
fiuage, jn other word, cursing,
sweariug, tfcc. ; yet it in heard on
the streets every day, and it is be-.
w""s common mat n is tnara.y
thoogbt that a man can tell a good
yVjbile qm .this subject there is one
ether .thing we want to condemn,
sd that is tbe repeating orinde-
cent anecdotes. It is bad enough
tipr men in the ordinary walks of
Jife to do this, but when a church
member, one who ought to be an
example for bis fellow man, calls bis
eompamons anu the youth of the
land around him and tells them such
things as would shock the modesty
of any decent man, we say it is
ridiculous. Let there be reform in
