Jack Dover, the victim had dared to face the boys, and tell them they were infringing on his rights by pulling down fence and allowing their cattle to -range in his field. For this 1 assumption lie was shot down. The Densons, four in num ber, fled to the mountains. The governor issued a proclamation, cal ling on all good citizens to assist in their arrest. Men turned loose their plow handles and rallied to the support of, . the. law. It reminded one of the beginning of the" war, when farmers suddenly became sol diers.

It was known that the Denson boys had friends in the mountains, and that a desperate resistance would be made. Quite a number of men who were eager to serve the state, became dis couraged when the excitement had died awav, and finally Sheriff Guil din", just as the posse was enter ingthe defiles, stood high up m his stirrups, and exclaimed: 'I want you fellows to understand one thing. There is going to be some music round here, and a cow ard has no business in the gang, if anybody wants to go back, now's the time to git". The appellation of coward had ef fect, ami for a time no one was dis posed to accept the humiliating terms of discharge. Finally old Cornstalk rode from the ranks, and said : I know as well as I know my name that some o' yon fellers are skeered I don t want to see no man hurt, an' some of you need a leader what is got the moral 'jack bone. Jis'letme say: 'Mr. bheriff you can count me out o this unuer takin'." "Shame on him!" exclaimed sev eral voices. Coward! traitor!"

Two men fell from their horses and were borne away by their comrades. Each man sprang from his horse and took refuge as best he could. The surprise was complete though it might have been expected, and several minutes elapsed before the sheriff's men returned the fire,- and when a shower of bullets and - shot was sent up rattling animg the rocks, behind which they -, e'onched. Duke Denson, leader of "ihe; out laws, recognising the uselessness of firing under such circumstances jcrawled from his niche of conceal ment, braving the fare irom below and posted "himself- behind a, rock overlooking nearly every - position taken by the pursuers.

The other fellers will kill you before you can reach shelter' ' Duke Denson cooly surveyed the situation, and selecting another mark he fired. Old John Patter son turned over 'dead. Duke was preparing for another shot, when, far up -in thw i.tmnntainc,--va -.ri&f cracked. Duke writhed from be hind the rock, and fell on the sharp rocks below. The sheriff's men shouted. Jack Denson sought his brother's position, but the ritle, far up in the mountain, cracked again and Jack rolled out and joined his brother.

Queen Elizabeth, of Ron mania, is one" of the most literary ladies of European courts. She writes pleas ingly and much too much, indeed for her own reputation. Her great theme is woman, her joys and sor rows, for she has suffered much. Some of her thoughts are worthy of transcription: "If a woman is bad man is gener ally the cause therof writes the Queen. "Do not trust a man who does not believe in thy happiness in thy home." . Among the savages the wiies an animal of burden, among the Turks a luxury, among the Europeans she is both. . "The woman of the world is sel dom the wife of her husband." "An unhappy wife is like a flow er exposed to the blast; she remains a bud for a long time, and when she develops to a blossom she quicklv f ades." ' "The virtue of a wife must often be very great, for not unfrequenil y she must have sufficient, for both her husband and herself." "If one forgives one loves no lon ger, for true love knows nothing of forgiven ess. "The jealousy of those who love us is the grandest flattery' "Man and wife should never cease tn do a little courting, no matter how old they may be. F AETTiS VIMjE Dr. York's Seeofa.

" If Dr. York had controlled the Democratic party, theWestern North Carolina Railroad would never have crossed the mountains, but would have stopped at Old Fort. With the yearly appropriation of $70,000 the road has been built, and at no cost to the State, as every dollar of the appropriation has been paid back into the ..State Treasury, and we have no State taxes this year. S In February 1S70, Dr. York was a member of the House of Repre sentatives, and thaf body passed the bill authorizing" the consolidation of the Western Railroad Company with the Mt. Aairy . Railroad Company and merging both into the Yadkin Railro'std Company.'; When the roll was called on the passage of this bill Dr. York failed to respond. fHe dodged, although the building -of this road would afford rail way, facil ities tothe county he represented. :To Chatham, the building of this road was ot vital importance. Dr.r York voted, squarely against the compromise, of ,the old bonded debt.-; He also voted against ex changing old North, Carolina Rail road Construction's Bonds for new one;?.

Mr. Blaine tells us that the coun try has increased its wealth thirty thousand million dollars ($30,000, 000,000) in iwo decades from 1SG0 to 1SS0 which mark the reign of his party; and he intimates that this large growth in wealth is the pro duet of the protective tariff policy which his party inaugurated in 1801 and has maintained up to the pres ent day. Mr. Blaine's figures are not correct; they are enormous ex aggerations. But let us for ;the present admit them; will- he please to tell us where this thirty thousand millions of increased wealth, pro diKV. i-.i the last twenty -ears, is to b- l ii:id ;j Who owns it? It is i-'Z, lor every adult laboring man in the country. Do the laboring men of the country own it? They certainly produced it, if it exists; but do they possess it? The inces sant strikes among the laboring classes, their hourly protests against low wages, and the chronic discon tent that has prevailed among them for over half half the twenty years embraced in Mr. Blaine's review are the most effective answers to this questionThere is not one working man in a hundred who is worth $3, 000. If this vast wealth has been produced somebody owns it not they. Let us see if we can trace it up. The aggregate amount of capital employed in manufactures in the United States in 1SS0 was $2,700, 000.000; total number of hands em ployed was 2,737,000; the total wages paid was $04.7,000,000; the total value of material used was $3. 300,000,000; and the total value of finished products was S5,3(0,000,0'OO. Divide the wages paid (047,000,000) among the number of hands (2,737, 000) and we have as the yearly earn ing of each hand $340 less than a $1 a day. Now add together the amount the manufacturers paid out in wages ($947,000,000) and the amount thev paid out for materials ( 3.3i'0. 000.000 and the sum is $4,343,000,000. Sub-, tract this from the total finished product ($5,309,000,000), and we I have their net profit $1,053,000,000 I which is 3H per ' cent." "On their capital ($2,737,000,000). The census figures tell a curious story. They show that the manu facturers made more money than they paid out in wages to their hands. The amount thev paid out in wage .5 was $9-19,000,000: the net profits were $1.053,000,0.00. Thev made a proiit of $!.

If these seif-sancfi tied followers of Re publicanism were as particular about their support of Democratic journals, we imagine that things would take a different shape; or should Demo crats be so mean and low as to at tempt to swear every Negro against Republicanism, there would not be a single Negro paper in the State, for, if Democratic patronage should be withheld the last one of them would be compelled to suspend, which would be just what these lat ter day masters desire.

An old man came driving up the street. His cart was a queer vehicle of an ancient type and had evidently been used a great many years. All at once the iron-gray mule came to a standstill. He refused to move. He wouldn't go. The dilapidated speci men of a long departed past beat him vigorously with a club. Tlie old man pounded him unmercifully. But that mule refused to go. He would not move. -By this time a great crowd had gathered about and strange to say alny$t every one knew how to make that mule go. "Unf i his belly-band' said a man with a pug nose. The belly-band was made loose. "Put a rope around his neck and tie him to a great street car," said a man who was smoking a big cob pipe. A rope was put around, the ani mals neck and tied to a street car. The mule moved almost a block. The crowd followed. He was un tied but refused to move. "Tie a string to his ears and pull' said a man with long red hair. It was done. The mule remained stationary. "Put some dry sand in his mouth' said a little man. Another failure. "Tie up one of his front legs," said a swaggering fellow. The leg was tied up. The mule didn't move, and apparently didn't miss the leg. "Blow in his ear," said a clerk. The mule winked his left eye, and throwing the other ear back, looked as if lie would be blowed before he'd move. The old man began to show signs of discouragement, Trouble, and labor had told on him. At last a man came up wearing a smile, a Roman nose and a blue shirt. "I can make that mule go," he .sae.i. ou can t liuthcr. said the old nu Bet a doll at 1 can said the young The man. rooaey was put up. The young man tooi: a railroad torpeao and placed it under the mule's tail. Then he took a long stick and punch ed the mule in the flank, and well it was fun to see the sight. The mule was thrown off his guard, his tail went down with a bang, and away went that mule like a flash up the street at a rate that would make Jay-Eye-See blush with humiliation. The old man looked up the road a moment at his rapidly disappearing out lit, am!, turning to the young man. said : "Say mister, have you got anoth er one of them things?" ...1 liirniiiir to the "Yes, 1 guess fel'mw."' o said the young "Well here's another one under my dollar, coat tail riease on ami 1 il try ana eaten my uuhim mule. i-.. . i . -j. i. i ..i A Congressman's Story. I had arranged with friends that they should be on hand to help me out, and felt so sure about the whole business that I went out and telegraphed the parties in interest that the bill would certainly go throuoh that day. About 2 o'clock I concluded I would go down and get some lunch. I suppose I had been sitting in the restaurant for about half an hour wheji I heard an awful scurrying of feet, and going to the door I saw a great throng of members pouring down the stairway with their hats, overcoats and pa pers, evidently clearing out for the day. With my heart in my boots I dashed out and collared my colleague. "Good God, Mack! why in the world has the house adjourned?" "Adjourned" said my associate; "there has been no adjournment. John D. White, ofJKentucky, is back on his postern jints and going to make a speech We ve got to pro tect ourselves, so we just mizzled." It was a regular stampede, I tell you, and my bill frozen out along with the Kentuckian.

The Merino slier p of which there are several varietics--tlie Saxon, the French, and the Spanish came originally from Spain, and were no doubt known to and appreciated by the Greeks and Romans. They have the finest wool of the whole genus, and a great quantity to the weight of the carcass. As mutton they are epiite nice in flavor, though inferior to many other breeds as flesh bearers, being deficient in the fine points of the carcass "The fi ner t he wool the finer the mutton," an old saying, does not seem to be contradicted by the Merino, the quantity and not the quality being deficient. And al though the Merino ha j in the last century doubled its weighty of car cass as" well as of wo !, tlie increas ing demand for mutton must give it a second place. The facility of transporting wool is so much great er than that of flesh th it wool grow ing must be more and more confined to distant and comparatively bar barous lands; whilst the mutton sheep must take their places near the centers of population aud con sumption. America can claim the credit of having made the greatest improvement in this fine breed of sheep; and New England among the States up to this time perhaps has a claim to pre-eminence in this culture. But there is still room for advance and the end is not yet. When to Cut Grass. The analytical chemist of the De partment of Agriculture, summing up the results of analysis of nearly all the cultivated grasses, says it is apparent that in most caves the time of bloom, or thereabout, it is the fittest for cutting grasses in order to obtain the most nourishment and largest relatively profitable crops, and for the following reasons: The amount of water has diminished, and the shrinkage will therefore be less. The weight of the crop will be the largest in proportion to the nutri tive value of its constituents. The amount of nitrogen not present as albuminoids will be at its lowest point fibre will not be so excessive as to prevent digestion, and the nutri tive ratio will be more advantageous. If cut earlier the shrinkage is larger, although the fibre i.? less and albu men is a little larger. The palata ability may be increased, but the to tal nutriments to the acre will not be so large and the nutritive ratio will be more abnormal. The disad vantages of lute cutting are evident in the increase of fibre destroying the digestibility of the nutriments and the falling off of the albumen by conversion into amides. This is not made up by the larger crop cut. Test for Butter. "Every housekeeper should know how to tell oleomargarine from but ter," said a Washington market dealer to a New York IFeraltf re porter. "The market is full of bogus butter, so skilfully made that it cannot be told from the genuine ariicle by the eye or the tongue. To detect it market men draw the blade of a knife across the suspected but ter. If it is oleomargarine the place where the knife was pressed will look white, and tack of the blade will be marked with little beads of water. When the test is made with the genuine butter the white look does not appear, but the butter holds lis coiur. Another test is to drop a piece of the suspected butter into a well heated frj'ingpan. If it is oleomar garine it will sputter, because of the water in it. If it is real butter it will melt and bubble or boil but not sputter. Any housekeeper can tell the difference. A full and varied supply of fresh vegetables during the fall months, i ii i i is a luxury not always enioyea uy farmers. And yet it is about as easy to have them late as early, and some times more so. A good, rich soil, worked fine and kept moist by fre quent stirring, is the essential fea ture. Ground from which early vegetables have been taken is always available. Bear in mind at this sea son that seeds require moisture to germinate and grow, so first steen in warm water several hours, plant deep and keep the soil from baking about them.
