Find Out
i3 nothing suspicious in the town of
Hampton. There were no new cases
and only two deaths at the Home Fri
day, according to a report from Dr.
Vkkery, the surgeon at the institution,
eent to the surgeon general. Dr. Vick
ery expressed the opinion that the im
mune help on the way there bhoulJ be
sufficient, as the epidemic seems to be
checked. The cordon around the Home
and the immediately adjoining village
of Phoebus, Surgeon White says, !s as
tight as he ever saw it at any place.
Surgeon General Wyman, In syeaklng
of the f ituatlon, inferentially uttered a
word of caution against too sanguine
views of the checking of the erldemic
at this time, which might rcault in a
relaxation of the precautions which
Khould be maintained against the
spread of the fever. He said:
'There are certain factors in the bit-
uaticn which make it encouraging and
they are, first, that the disea&a was dis
covered very promptly, conpared with
usual outbreaks In an institution where
all the inmates were under good con
trol. It was recognized much quicker
than it would have been in a commer
cial community, because all the cases
and all the deaths were brought to the
notice of one man. Another favorable
factor Is that the latitude is not ex
tremely South. Nevertheless It should
be remembered that in Brunswick, Ga.,
iu 1S93, a little more than two week3
alter the last reported death othsr
case? appeared.'"
In response to an inquiry a. to the

swimming over he was seized with

Who Shall Appoint Counsel?
There Is. an interesting clash be
tween the corporation commission and
the Governor over the employment of
counsel In the assessment cases which
come up bsifore Judge Simonton at
Asheville. The commission ha3 select
ed coyasel; Governor Russell claims
thcit he alone can pay or select, and
that he will do the selecting. But the
commissioners know perfectly well
that the next Legislature will pass a
bill to iay the fees of the counsel the
commission may employ. The com
mission it -is true, has no fund for
counsel fees. It will go ahead. Of
course the Governor will get the
"short," as he always does in State affairs.

Are They Living Too High?
Havana, By Cable. Considerable
comment was caused here by the pub
location of a disjMitch from the United
States, embodying tha charge made
by a leading New York newspaper,
that Governor General Brooke, Briga
dier General Ludlow, military gover
nor of Havana; Collector Tasker Bliss
and Major Davis, sanitary officer at
Havana, have been receiving extra al
lovnnces out cf the Cutxin revenues to
maintain themselves in luxury. The
feeling among Americans in Havana is
that this charge is based upon a eexi
ous miaappreh&naion of the facte. The
suggestion of luxurious living per
plexes the Cuban-3, who are in. a pasi
tiom to contrast the democratic way in
wbkih men holdiing the high rank held
by General Brooke and Ludlow con
duct 'their establishmeats with the pro
digal habits of the old Spanish regime.
Should be RedeemaMe.
Gardner Bros., of Cherryville, Gaston
county, writes the State Treasurer that
the trade checks they are using are
transferrable and therefore not prohib
ited by law. The evident intention of
the Legislature, however, was to com
pel the person or firm issuing these
checks to redeem them in money when
not used in the purchase of goods. That
this is not done is the charge against
Gardner Bro3. The Treasurer ha3 re
ferred the matter to the Attorney General.
A Generous Gift.
Mr. A. F. Page, of Raleigh, has re

Etance the trustees of the Home have

Mr. Lincoln :d, "You my fool
ome cf the people, all the time yea
may fx9 ail the people some of the
fjtne, but you cant Ccol fool all the
people all the time." That's ao. I reck
on, but I will add that a man can't
fool bis wife at all. Sha catches np
with him bj lassinct. My wife has
been awsy to Rome and ao I took ad
vantage of her absence ai4 had two
tree cut down. One was dying at the
bop and the other w3 crowding two
other trcej and doing no good. But
she is ittterly hostile to cutting down
a tree and so I have to do It while she
I away. One of them was cut down
low to the ground and after every chip
and tw'.g was cleared np I had gras
nut over the placs where the tree was.
I was goLcg to do th otiher the same
way but I got sick and she came home
prematurely and there wan the stump
grinning with its fresh cut edges. I
wa3 getting bcV.er, but when I saw her
coming I took a horizontal attitude on
the couch and tried to look sick and
sad and melonoholy. It was two days
befsre she nomcel that stump and
when cm called my attention to it I
told her that it wa9 an old stump and
had been there for years. She never
said anything, tout there was a doubt
ful ey-pres3:on on her 'tranquil counten
ance. If there were no grandchildren
around here I could get alotg, but they
let the eat out of the hi every time
and I am the vkolm. I don't remem
ber even- seeing that stump before,"
said ciie, but I persuaded h?r that the
late rains had colored it. When she
found me out. I assured her that the
tree was hollow .cd wa3 bound to die
soon and that its proximity to the
other trees prevented thsir expansion
and that expansion was now the policy
of the country. "Yes," eaid ihe, 4'I
suppesp we must cut down the smaller
trees to that the larger oce3 can have
more roam. We must kill off the Fili
pinos for the same reason. I wonder
how many of the poor creatures they
have killed. If our people kill a black
brute down here, they make an awful
fuss about it, but they are killing thou
sands because they are defending their
native land. It is all very strange to
I don't like some of our governor's
late utterances. The daily paper
prints in big lines that he eaM the
man or men who lynched a negro were
v.s guilty in the sight of God as the
negro they lynched. Surely he didn't
sayit. The reporter mu5t have mis
quoted him again. It does not sound
like 'him. There is no such theology
in the books. If God had not have
put a mark apon Cain anybody might
have slain him. Moses had to provide
ci'Lles of refuge for those who accident
ally killed anybody, lest he avengers
of blood should pursue and overtake
and slay him. The avenges of bleed
were recognized factors in the admin
istration of the law. What would
have been the punishmenjt of these
black brutes in Moses's time for their
outrages we cannot imagine, for with
the Jews no such crimes were known
and to this day no t.uch crime is
knewn among them. As a raoe they
are the purest people in their domes
tic relations. Husbands are loyal and
true and kind to their wives and wives
to their husbands; children are obe-
dien't to their parents and affectionate
to one another. But here among us
are a numerous people who seem ut
terly devoid of ihose family virtues
bhat are the safeguards of all good
govercnaenit. Within the last thirty
years they liav3 grown from childhood
to meiahocd and have become infinite
ly worse than rheir fathers and moth
ers were while in slavery. There are
more bastard negroes in and around
this city than those born in wedfock.
They are not mulatoes, but thty are
negroes of full blood. The moral de
generacy of the race Is alarming. The
state convicts and county convicts now
aggregate over four thousand, and all
of them nave come to maturity since
the close of the otvil war. The morals
of these negroes gets worse and -worse
and their outrages upon white women
more frequent and more brutal. Our
people are sbscked and whisper to one
onotaetr, who will be the next victim.
When be eavaga Indians burned the
hemes and tomahawked the women
and children our forefathers pursued
(hem by day and by night and bad
fiielr revenge. We have a people
among us many Z whom are worse
than savages, ana every man among
C3 who is loyal to his wife or mother
or sister or dacg&ter is an avenger of
blood and should sever stop until the
brute is caught and slain. For such
there are no citdeo of retfuge and no
horns of the aar for him to lay hold
of. This Is one cr'axe tthait make.? a
man an outlaw and the people have no
more fear cf provoking tbe vengeance

The loo free nw of perfume alnnit
the inrson has been avoided for many
years, and held inadinissabl in good
society, the merest hint of a faint odor
leing all that was Kssibly allowed.
Recently this edict of good taste has
not been so strictly regarded, and such
perfumes as violet and sandal-wood.
both of them expensive ones when
pure, together with heliotrope, are
somewhat In favor again. It Is quit
likely that the very general wearing of
large blue violets has led the way to
It Is not easy to eradicate tle love of
perfumes anyway, for the nerves wade
to appreciate tbem will always demand
satisfaction; and since the race, civil
ized or uncivilized, has existed, the
love of perfumes has existed too.
Even animals are sensitive to per
fumes, and it used to be said that ono
of the helps of the great horse-tamer
Itarey was a bunch of violet.
Emperors, and prlets. and eplc
In power, have always leen lavlali In
their use of perfumes. Saladln wash

Omar with rose water, to make the
Mohammedan heaven more attractive.
Some of the liouris were declared to
hare bodies of pure musk. The Turk
has always been more fond of musk
than the Occidental is.
At a later period than that of Rich
ard's great foe one of the French
monarchs Ixuis Qulnzc, we think
used a different perfume for every
day in the year, although some of the
shades of variance must bare been in
finitesimal. It was a poetical custom
of the court at about that period for
two lovers to uxe the tame perfume.
Our grandmothers, and theirs before
thm. sometimes scented their balr
dresslnzs by means of an apple stuck
full of cloves and spices, kept a lodg
time in the pomade, - which was per
haps as simple a method and provided
as simple an aroma as could have been
invented. iTbey loved, too, the odor of
patchouli, with which everything com
ing from India or China in those rich
old days of the India trade was loaded
somewhat too powerfully for modem
tasfe; but perhaps they loved the scent
more for Its asoclatlon with the won
derful shawls and scarfs and stuff
which it accompanied than for Itself.
