Joseph Kropkern, of this city, today sued for the amount of a mortgage he had upon theaf fections of Miss Joeefy Wassal, because she married another man after being promised to him. He and the girl's brother are great friends and a match was arranged be tween them, although the girl was in Aua tna. Kropkern paid $45 to bring her here, bat when she came he failed to propose, thinking, as he said today, that the brother bad made, the proposal for him and that the marriage was understood. N The girl, after waiting several weeks, a couple of days ago married another man, whereupon Krop kern today brought suit for the $45.

Yesterday afternoon, on turning sudden ly the corner of a street I ran into a little negro lad of perhaps 11 years. . Some half dozen articles which he probably was car rying home from the store, were knocked from his arms by the collision and scatter ed In as many different directions upon the pavement, a newspaper which I carried in my hand when we ran together was also dislodged by the contact. ' Tipping the ragged excuse for a cap that he wore, bowing and looking very regret ful and with "scuse me sab, I'se berry sor ry,' he proceeded to restore to me my pa per in utter disregard of bis own half-dozen bundles scattered hither aad thither upon the sidewalk. Then gathering up his pack ages one by one, and "giving his ragged cap Another tip, tnis time with his ebony face wreathed in smiles, hurried on his way. . I stood still for u moment and watched him as he trudged down the street. His head was thrown back and he whis tled a tune a merry, happy tune. He was conscious perhaps of having repaired his fault, (no more his than mine) and done his duty as a gentleman? Ah, no. He was only a ragged negro boy, and could not do a duty "aa a gentleman:" Yet, methinks, there are many who boast of their blue blood, claiming by birth, the title of gen tlemen, and many others whose claim to the title depends upon the size of their bank account, who might learn a much needed lesson iirtrue gentility and polite ness, from this little ragged urchin, de scendant of Africa sable race. As I watched him go down the street I thought. "How strange! Have the years rolled backward and the . old days come again?" But no. Here comes another negro. Panama hat on back of head, patent leather shoes, cigarette between his teeth, bristling with self importance and with the brand of A. D. 190 apparent all over him, who al most pushes me into the street and keeps straight ahead with a jaunty, self-satisfied air." And thus I am reminded , that the year 60 was 45 years ago and this is an ae of equal rights" and "liberty." But that first little negro he of the lad ed ragged cap and the cherry Mnile-what of 'him? I do "'not "know his name iffever saw him before. But . I'll wager that he received his training from one of the south 's truest types of gentlemen the old faith ful ante bellum negro his father or grand father, probably.

Walker, a painter, swore out a warrant this afternoon for the arrest of Rev. A. G. Garr, who is at the head of a sect of religious enthusiasts, known as the Holy Jumpers, on the charge of en ticing his wife to leave him and for se creting his children from him. Walk er's wife has for tho past eight months been attending the services of the Holy Jumpers and has by degrees been con verted to their religion. On . last Sun day night she joined the Church, de spite the protests of her husband. One of the doctrines of the Holy Jumpers is that it is wrong for any member of the flock to mary a non-member. Mr. Walker says that Mrs. Walker has been under the influence of Rev. Garr since 9he--beganattending the services, and has not for several, months been 'a wife to hm. When the man went home to dinner today he found his wife and two children missing, as well as all their belongings. Walker discovered that his wife had taken refuge in the Holiness House, a large building occupied by the Holy Jumpers. He went to the house, and when he asked for his wife and children Rev. Garr told him that he could not see them unless he became converted to the faith. Walker is indignant over the affair, swears vengeance. He believes that the Holiness preacher has exerted an evil influence over his wife, and this is at the bottom of her deserting him. Over a dozen of the Holy Jumpers, in cluding many women, recently served terms in jail because they persisted in yelling and screaming during their ser vices on the streets, in defiance to the mayor's orders to them to stop. The night service of this sect attract many people, who come for curiosity. The members of the congregation dance under hoisted umbrellas, women preach while holding crying babies in their arms, and other strange antics form the part of a ceremony that is ridiculous in the extreme. . ; A number of complaints have been made by husbands to the police that their wives have either deserted them or gone crazy as a result of joining the Holiness Church. Schoof for the Blind. The North Carolina School for the Blind in Raleigh will not open until September 20th, this fall, on account of impossibility of completing the repairs that have been in progress some weeks, $7,500 being expended in this work prin cipally for cement floors in the base ments of all the buildings and the doub ling of the capacity of the laundry. Sick wards are being prepared also. It is a notable fact that although the institu tion is sixty-five yeare old there has been heretofore no provision made for the separation of the sick from the gen eral student quarters. Superintendent Jno. E. Ray says the enrollment this year will exceed 350. MPOIIiED HER BBAUT1T.

The Law Unconstitutional. Asheville, N. C, Aug. 14. Special. Judge Fred Moore this afternoon signed an order compelling the county commissioners to turn over the making out of the tax list and the annual county statement to Regis ter of Deeds Fortune instead of Auditor Stokeley. The decision of Judge Moore was in ef fect that the auditor's office, created bytbe last legislature, in so far as it effected the emoluments of the office of register of deeds was unconstitutional. The salary of the auditor was fixed at f 1,200 a year, the major portion of his work being the tax . lists and the annual state ment, heretofore made by the register of deeds who received several hundred dollars for the work. When the office was created Mr. For iune decided to contest that portion of the act affecting his salary with the result that the decision was in his favor. It is said that the constitutionality of the office audi tor as whole will now be tested, that the commissioners will refuse to pay the audi tor his salary since he does not perform all the duties set out in the act and that the auditor will sue for his pay.

Hunter THE OLD NORTH STATE. Pride and Devotion of North Caro linians to Their State Justified by her History and Achieve ments of Her Sons. Houston, Texas Chronicle. There is something admirable and in spiring in the state pride of the people of North Carolina, and their pride in and devotion to their state is justified by her history and by the achievements of North Carolinians from the period of the Revolution until this good day. As one of the thirteen Colonies which re belled against British tyranny she was the theatre of bloody war, and her sons bore well their part in that memorable struggle. . Recent historical investigation has proved that upon her soil was framed and proclaimed at Mecklenburg the first Declaration of Independence, and in the conflict which followed upon the latter declarations at Philadelphia many a son of North Carolina sealed with his blood his devotion to the principles which her people had been the first to proclaim. . When independence had been achiev ed her sons stood as peer of the proud est in the halls of legislation, and were potent factors in shaping the policy and destiny of the young republic, for the existence of which they were in such great and honorable measure respon sible. During the formative stage of the na- ilonar government, when there was a struggle between intellectual giants re presenting the respective contentions for a strong centralized government on one side and a government wherein the autonomy of the states and their, unsur rendered sovereignty should be the guiding and controlling policy and prin ciple on the other. North Carolina statesmen stood always for the latter contention, the true faith and the basic principles of the republic conceived and created by the patriotism and genius o Jefferson and Madison and their great compatriots. - North Carolina always, adhered to lofty political ideals. Her representa tive in Congress and her senators were men of the highest intellectual and moral sunward, ska swit to- jrepr-. Beht her in the ' national councils none busmen worthy of her historic and lofty political and social traditions. It would have been as impossible for a man with a tainted record or upon whose name there rested even the suspicion of dis honor to have secured a seat as repre sentative or senator from the Old North State as it would for an unpardoned sin ner to have entered heaven. In that old state there have always been and are yet maintnined the loft iest social standards and traditions. The meretricious and demoralizing com mercialism which so dominates other sections has found no lodgment there. Money there is not the measure of merit" No man buys his way into society there. The people hold to the honorable, ex alted, ancient social faiths and there is to be found an aristocracy not of wealth but of breeding and grace and. culture. The people of North Carolina not only profess devotion to the true principles of republican government, but are ever ready to make good their professions, and when their rights were disregarded and aggression upon the soil of their beloved state was threatened, they rose as one man to defend their homes and firesides, and historical statistics prove that North Carolina sent more soldiers to battle in proportion to population than was ever furnished by any state or nation in all the annals of human history. Great as was her contributions to the armies of the south in numbers, the quality of her soldiery was equally as remarkable. Her people cherish with pardonable and imperishable pride the record of North Carolina's sons from 1861 to 1865, and on a monument recent ly erected in that state In perpetuation of the memory of their matchless deeds there is graven the inscription, sustain ed by historical records: "First at Beth el.' Farthest at Gettysburg, and last at Appomattox." ' To read that inscription thrills every man capable of appreciating heroism and devotion to duty, like a bugle call. First in the opening battle, f artherest in the advance up the historic heights of Gettysburg, and last to yield when the great drama closed in gloom, but yet in glory at Appomattox is a record upon which North Carolina may well rest through all the changing years. It stands and unmatchable, and the impar tial historian of the future will write North' Carolina down as she deserves.' " The devotion of her . people to which they testified by their blood in time of war was not more remarkable and scarcely more admirable than has been that displayed in the well-nigh as trying times of peace. Though her fields were laid waste, the homes of her people de stroyed, her Industries prostrated, and anguish, sorrow uuspeakable and pov erty dire kept watch and ward by every hearthstone, yet her children did not forsake her in the hour of Her darkness and desolation, but facing a future that seemea nopeiess, out of verv love of their old mother they have redeemed and de llvered her from the hand of the spoiler and she is now a land of prosperity in peace and plenty smiling. Grand old state! The home of a brave, faithful, glorious people, who love lib erty better than life, who hold unseduo- ed to the Dolitical and social teach ings and traditions of their fathers, who have in council hall and on battle field made luminous the pages of history, whose sons in her defense have ."trod the road to dusty death as to a festival, ' and watered the roots of the tree of constitutional government with their heroic blood. Admitting no political guilt, asking pardon of no man or no power, with con sciences void of offense in past and trust ing yet in the God of their fathers, they have rebuilded their waste places, re stored their broken fortunes, regained their political supremacy and glorying in her past, rejoicing in the abundant prosperity of her present, with the song of the husbandman, the roar of the fur nace, the hum of the spindle and the whirr of the loom, they are heralding the triumphant march . of North Caro lina toward a future which shall be worthy of her richest and noblest his toric and heroic traditions.

The Asheville board of trade, desirous of ascertaining the number of visitors to Asheville at this season of the year, will undertake with the co-operation of the mayor and board of aldermen, a census of the strangers here. The census will proba bly be taken early next week. It i not proposed to take a census of those visitors who spent a time in Asheville this season or this year, but only those -sojourning here when the census man makes his round. It is conceded that there are - more visitors "here now, or wT!I1 wheja reM5'i&K:ett reach Asheville this week, than ever before in the city 'a history and the board of trade, in order to ascertain the num- . ber, will make a house-to-house canvass. It is proposed to take the census in one x day in order that names may not be du plicated to; send out a large number of canvassers with ballot boxes and slips of paper as ballots and to request ' each boarding house keeker to deposit with in the box in the hands of the census taker the number of guests in the house. In this way the prosperous or unprcs perous condition of the boarding houses will not be known. No, Mills River Declined. Asheville, Aug. 16. Upon the peti tion of the citizens of Avery's Creek township, the board of county commis sioners yesterday ordered that an elec tion be held in that township Saturday, September 16, to determine whether the said township shall issue $5,000 in bonds for subscriptions of that amount of stock to the building of the Appalachian In terurban Railway. Well informed citizens of the Avery's Creek section, in town this week take an optimistic yiew of the proposed road and say that there is little doubt but the bond issue will carry by a large majori ty. Avery's Creek adjoins Henderson county and in view of the fact Hills River, adjoining Avery's Creek on the Hendorson county side of the line, has voted bonds, as have also other town ships in Henderson, the people of Av ery's Creek are anxious that the road extend through their section and are willing to help the project alone in a substantial manner. If Avery's Creek votes the bonds, a bond election will probably be called for Lower Hominy. the township lying between Asheville and Avery s Creek, and the road pushed on toward this city. ' State Printers Improving Plant. Mestrs. . M. Uzzell & Co. have taken another step forward in their determi- nation to handle the state printing promptly, by putting in a new Smythe stitching machine. The state work has increased so rapidly during recent years that it is next to an . impossibility to meet the demands of the various depart ments without employing modern meth- -ods and realizing this fact, the state printers have set about the task. The recent addition of a folding machine, with a capacity of 20,000 32-page forms daily, and the rapid stitcher just put in. ' means that delays will soon be "things of the past."
