Dr. Capehart makes all people who come in contact with him enjoy themselves and has taken special pains to be accommodating and pleasant to the Newspaper fra ternity. The reason we take an interest in the upbuilding of these resorts is; they attract the attention of northern people with means, who come down to spend a few weeks of pleasure to regain health, and great numbers of them are attracted by our mild climate, cheap lands and opportunities for manufacturing enterprises, invest their money, become permanent set tlers and are thereby aiding our peo ple. The aid that you extend will not only be the means of giving you a place where you may spend a few day of recreation and pleasu.e, but you will be aiding in development of the entire State and especially the Eastern section which without any question needs the assistance of our Newspapers more than any other secton of North Carolina.

Let them not be forgotten. Wrrn pleasure we note that the Carteret Oyster, Fish and Game Fair, held this week in the town of Beaufort was in every way a success. The exhibit was immense and has never been equaled. The opening address was delivered by Hon. C. R. Thomas, Jr. Rev. E. M. Forbs, the venerable Rector of St. Pauls P. : E. church offered up an impressive prayer. Sorry we could not attend. The Roanoke News, in its last publication, contains the -following : "Senator Vance has introduced in the Senate a bill to amend the civil service act. It provides that the commission shall have no power to make any rule or regulation exclud ing any applicant for examination and appointment by reason of age, or dropping any. one from the. list of eligibles because of time limitation. It further provides that at the request of any appointing officer of the gov ernment it shall be the duty of the commission to send to him the names of all who have been examined and found competent from which to make his selection. We hope this amend ment will be incorporated in the law, as the commission now have more power than they ought to have if the principle or civil service reiorm is right." 4 JAKE'S" LETTER. yond the Petersburg: crossing. :o: WRECK.

Dear Sir: We are enabled through the liberal disposition and public spirit of Dr. W. R. Capehart, of Avoca, to offer a few of our Edito rial friends of this State a Rockyhock, Dec. 20, 1887. Editor Fisherman & Farmer. Dear Sir: Allow me to congratulate you on the great improvement of .your very readable paper. May its future be as bright as its Columns are interesting. Would you allow me to make a sugges tion? Suppose you give one column of your paper to the children. I am sure that it would be much more', eagerly read by them than by us older ones.' I remember, just one year ago, that the Enquirer loaned one of its columns to the little ones just for a Christmas spell, and I'll venture to say that it met with more universal favor during those few weeks than any other time of its history. If you desire to make your paper a sue cess just get the young people interest ed in it. ' A GOOD household newspaper wield a potent influence in shapeing the destiny of the uprising generation. I am glad to see that the Enquirer has awaken from a spell of inactivity; hope that it is now established upon a firm basis. Large quantities of produce is being shipped every boat day from Rockyhock' aureiy tne otr. unowam is getting ,a large patronage from our section.. Our boys find a ready market among its crew for all of the 'possums, coons, squirrels and rabits which they are able to cap ture. I am very sure that they have al- ready realized, this season, about 50 or $75 from that source. The young people of our community are beginning to feel Christmas lurking in their bones. Already the merry songs and jovial pastimes Are beginning to be shared among them. We expect a grand time at Rockyhock Church next Sun day. Our Sunday School is to partake of a feast of good things, besides appro priate recitation will be delivered. Wishing you a merry Christmas, I am yours, Jake. Thanks, write again. Your sugges tion is a good one, and we would be glad if the children would use a column in each issue. We willingly extend it to them. Ed. :o: THE FIRST WHITE SHAD.
