The school opens on the 16th of September. Mr. and Mrs. J. C. Thomson and their daughter Mrs. M. J. Pemborton are spending the summer in their mountain home at Blowing Rock. A great many people through out the State look upon Dr. W, C. McDifiie, of this city, as the man to succeed Dr. Grissom, as superintendent of the Insane Asylum. Dr. McDuffie is an ex President of tho North Carolina Medical Society, and is one of the most highly cultured and brainy physicians in the State. He has a reputation, superior to most any, for the treatment ot insanity. Here inJiis own home he is loved for his kindly and sympathetic nature, his genial manners and towering intellect, and well-known ability as a phy sician.
