At recess a little fellow came up and spoke to the teacher. As he turned to go down the platform the master said, " This is tbe boy I ' can trust; he never failed me " I followed him with my eye, and looked at him when he took his seat at recess. He had a fine, manly face, I thought a good deal about the master's remark. What a character had that boy earned ! He had already gotten what would be more to him than a fortune. It would be a pass port into the best firm in the city, and wnat is better, into the confidence and respect of the whole community. 1 wonder if the boys know how soon they are rated by other people ? Every boy in the neighborhood is known, and opin ions are formed of him: he has a char acter either favorable or unfavorable. A boy of whom the master can say, "I can trust him; he never failed me," will never want employment. The fidelity, promptness and industry which he shows at school are in demand everywhere. He who is faithful in little will be faith ful in much. Band of Honor Review. IST"G. W. Cater, an employee of the Atlanta Exposition, was killed in that city Monday by a trolley car. Cater was formerly from Greensboro, .N. C. He was standing on one track, waiting for a car approaching on another. It took the wrong switch, struck Cater and dragged him fifty feet. i t Old People. Old people who require medicine to regulate the bowels and kidneys will find the true remedy in Electric Bitters. This medicine does not stimulate and contains no whiskey nor other in toxicant, but acts as a tonic and alterative. It acts mildly on the stomach and bowels, adding strength and giving tone to the orga:is, thereby aiding Nature in the performance of the func tions. Electric Bitters is an excellent appetizer and aids digestion. Old people find it just ex actly what they need. Price fifty cents per bot le at Burwell & Dunn, wholesale and retail, drug store.

DlBXCTOB Animal Super miens. To kill a martin in tli olklore is con sidered unlucky. ln all lands ravens an crows have been considered birds of evil men. In South Italy there is a belief that tbe chameleon takes no bod but air. The natives of India fcelieve that ele. phants have a religion i id form of wor ship. A hundred years ag all naturalists taugbt that tbe pelican ft 1 its young with its own blood. A great many country! people believe that tbe screeching of an owl indicates impending calamity. J In the mountains of Italy there is a superstition that young vipers eat up their own mothers. In England it is believed that hedge hogs foresee and by their uneasy actions oretell a com ing storm In Dalmatia it is an exceedingly aun picious omen for a cat to sneeze when a !ride enters her new home. German children in the mountains of Silesia devoutly believe that beetles are both deaf and blind. In India there is an idea that a lion cannot be induced to attact a prince or anv scion of a royal house. In Wales it is believed that if anyone kills a wren he will fall down and break a bone before the end of the year. In France there is an idea that if a fisherman counts the fish be has caught he will catch no more during that day It is said that among the Mexican populace there is an idea that the lizard warns men of the approach of a serpent. In England, Germany and Rtssia tbe country people generally believe that to meet a weasel is an extremely unlucky ac cident, Many common people of England be lieve that the guinea pig has no ears. Its ears are very small and lie very close to the head. In Egypt the natives believe that croco diles cry and moan like men in distress in order to attract and make a prey of the unwary. In almost every country the howling of a dog is regarded as a bad omen, gen. erally predicting death to some person of the household. In France it is believed that when a white pigeon settles upon a chimney tba incident betokens speedy death for some inmate of the house. Among the country people of England there is an idea that to touch food which has been nibbled by a mouse will result in a sore throat. It is a common belief in the rural dis tricts of all countries that when hogs carry straw or sticks in their mouths rain will soon follow. iVTew York Corns mercial Advertiser. Mr. Atkinson's Views. "In a review of a trip through the South and a visit to tbe exposition, Mr. Edward Atkinson writes to the New York Post as follows : 'A stop at Charlotte, N. C, will bring to the eye a complete epitome of the growth and disposal of the cotton plant. One may pass through an excellent mod ern spinning mill making such yarns as the cotton of that immediate neighbor hood is suitable for, and from the win dows of that mill may watch cotton-pick ers gathering eotton in the field. He may examine the flower, the partially open boll, which is one of the most beautiful objects in nature, and the ripe cotton waiting to be gathered. He may then pass to tbe gin stand, not yet up to a true standard, where the cotton is mangled on the saw gin, which we may hope may soon be invented out of existence by tbe substitution of an effective rollersgin which does not injure the staple,but which does not yet turn off an adequate quans tity. He may then pass to tbe cottonseed oil mill, on of the largest in the United States, intelligently managed by its sole owner, witnessing there the saving of the lint left on the seed by the gin, the conversion of the kernel into oil and oilcake, and he may pass from there to tbe fertilizer factory, in which many pro cesses of interest will be found. Finally, he may pass to the cattle sheds a little way off, where last year the owner fat tened 2000 head of Texas cattled on the hulls and other refuse of tbe cotton seeds oil mill, mixed with oorn ensilage, send ing them in the best condition to tbe New York market. But being dissatisfied with the quality of the Texas cattle, he is now moving out from the North Carolina mountains large droves of cattle graded with the short horned Durham breed, which will be stall fed and prepared for market in tbe next three months, then sent in prime condition to tbe North. Bearing in mind that this whole cotton seed-oil industry and tbe saving of the waste products of the oil mill itself have been developed from and since the At lanta Exhibition of 1881, one may com prehend what benefits may be derived from such undertakings' DISSOLUTION. By mutual CONSENT OUR firm is this day DISSOLVED! The business will be continued as in the past, by Messrs. S. S. MeNinch & Co., For whom we bespeak the patronage of our for mer friends and customers. ALL NOTES AND ACCOUNTS DUE US MUST BB settled promptly so as to close the BUSINESS We sincerely thank OUR MANY FRIENDS AND Customers for iheir past good will and patronage, Respectfully, E. B. SPRINGS & CO. Charlotte, N. C, Nov. 1, 1695. Nov. 8, 1895. The Wealth of Nations. The United States is tbe richest coun try in the word, according to M. G. Fran cois, the eminent French statistician, who has been making a careful study of tbe wealth of 19 of the principal nations of tbe globe. It will interest penniless peo ple to know that tbe calculator estimates the riches of this country at 314,000,000, 000 francs, or, reckoning 5 francs to the dollar, nearly $63,000,000,000. England is the next with 265,000,000,. 000 francs, and France the third in line, being the possessor of 225,000,000,000. Germany's fortune is considerably less only 161,000,000,000 and the Russian Empire, though far more vast, is consider ably poorer, with but 12,000,000,000.. Three States possess more than 50,t 000,000,000 and less than 100,000,000,000 each. Austro Hungary, 82,000,000,000 Spain, 63,000,000,000, and Italy 54,000,- 000,000. The fortunes of the ll other countries vary between 3,000,000,000 and 34,000,000,000 francs. The actual amount ot money passed by the various nations bears but a feeble porportion to the above figures of na tional wealth. Tbe Bank of France, for example, is responsible for only about 6,500,000,000 francs, or a little less than 3 per cent of the total fortune of that coun try, while other countries have still less cash in their pockets and strong boxes, for France has the greatest per capita wealth than any country in the world. New York World. They Are Children. Don't expect too much of them; it has taken you 40 years, it may be, to make you what you are, with all your lessons ot ex perience, and I will dare say you are a faulty being at best. Above all, don't expect judgment in a child or patience under trial. Sympathize in their mistakes and troubles; don't ridicule them. Re member not to measure a child s trial by your standard. "As one wnom ms mother oomtortetb, says the inspired writer, and beautifully does he convey to us the deep, faithful love that ought to be found in every woman's heart, the, un failing sympathy with all her children's griefs. Let the memories of their child hood be as bright as you can make them. Grant them innocent pleasure in your power. We have often felt our temper rise to see how carelessly their little pi ma were thwarted by older persons, when a lttle trouble on their part would have given the child pleasure, the memory of which would last a lifetime. Lastly, don t think a child hopeless because it betrays some very bad habits. We have known children that seemed to have been born thieves and liars, so early did they display these undesirable traits, yet we have lived to see those same children become noble men and women and ornaments to society. We must confess they had wise, affectionate parents. And whatever else you may bo compelled to deny your child by your circumstances in life, give it what it most values, plenty ot love. Let Us Quarrel Tomorrow. My wife is one of the sweetest little women in the whole world, and I am not considered peculiarly cranky, but some times differences would arise, beginning with the most trival things, which, hows ever, being duly nursed, become oi momental proportions and often threatN ened tbe peace of the family. Of course, 1 was commonly the one to blame; in fact as I look back on it now, 1 am sure I was always to blame, for I should have had the wisdom to giye way on the nonessen tials, and by a little retramt and gentle talk win my little wife over to my way ot thinking. But instead of that I feared I should sacrifice my dignity, (1) as head of the family by yielding. So sometimes I went to my business without my good bye kiss and two people were miserable all day. Bqt mv little wife had an inspiration (most women have when things come to the breaking point), and the next time our argument was arming near tne danger line, she turned aside the collision by this womanly suggestion, "Howard, dear, let's quarrel tomorrow 1" This was a proposal for an armistice. What hus band could refuse? "All right," I said, "we will put it off for tomorrow;" and we laughed and talked of other things. But tomorrow did not come. Indeed, tomorow never comes; it's always ahead; and if we only keep our quarrels till then, there will be no more heart-broken little wife at home and fewer ''blue" husbands at the store or office. "Let's quarrel tomorrow." The Congregationalist is author. ity for ' he following : A Sunday-school teacher who desired to make praotical application of the eth ical teachings in a given lesson, sug gested to the young ladies in her class that on Sunday mornings they assist the housemaid by taking care of their own rooms. The proposition was received with blank surprise, and one pupil frankly declared that if she attempted to make a bed, she would not know what went on first. This ignorance concerning the simplest process in housework is by no means uncommon among young women today; and yet, when married, they ex pect one servant to understand all the mysteries of a house, and find fault if she does not keep it in immaculate order. And these same girls, who would not lift a finger to ease the burden of a servant in their father's house, will spend hours of time and no end of money in arrangs ins tableaux and other entertainments to help along general causes of benevoi Ience.

This exhibit, in the Mineral and Forestry Building, at the Exposition, Ats lanta, has been planned by Dr. Holmes, under whose charge the State Geological Survey has accomplished such excellent work, and is a practical one throughout. The following data concerning this cols lection has been furnished through the courtesy of Dr. Holmes, and givos an ex cellent idea not only of tbe exhibit itself, but also of the parts of the btate in which the various minerals are found: In corundum, of which more is mined in JNortb Carolina than in any other State, the samples represent the famous deposits at Corundum Hill, in Macon county; Buck Creek and Shooting Creek, in Clay county, and a number of other localities. The chrysolite and rock in which these corundum deposits occur, and the more common associated minerals, are also exhibited, from Corundum Hill. These specimens are supplemented by a series of samples of ground corundum and emery prepared from tbe bapphire corun dum mines. Among the iron-ore deposits repre sented in the collection are the magne tites at Cranberry, the red and brown hematites at Bessemer City (Ormondand Little Mountain ore beds), brown hema tites at Ore Hill (near Greensboro) and in Cherokee county, and the large but un developed magnetite deposits in Ashe county. North Carolina baB not heretofore at tracted any attention as a coal producing State, but the Cumnock mines, formerly tbe old Egypt mines, are now shipping more than 100 tons per day. in this North Carolina exhibit there is a section showing the structure of the coal forma tion there. The monazite exhibit is exceptionally complete, and illustrates the educational value of this kind ot exposition work. A map on the wall shows where the mona zite occurs in North Carolina. Nearby is a long box containing a section down through the gravel four feet thick in which the monazite is found in the valleys and along the small branches, overlaid by four feet of loam soil from the Latimore mine. Near this is a large glass jar of the hillside and red loam in which mona zite of the best quality is being mined at the Pheifer mine; also near bhelby in Cleveland county. Standing by tbeso sections of soil is a sluice box in which the monazite sand is washed and concen trated by a stream of water that is con. stantly passing through it On the top of the mineral cases, in the centre ot the exhibit, is a row of jars containing the different grades of soil in which the mona zite sand has been found, tbe different grades of monazite sand and the tailings which result from the washing and con centration of the monazite. In a window directly above this exhibit are two large glass transparencies, one of which shows the method ot mining and washing mona zite sand in the lowlands, where it is mixed with the gravel, and the other, similar operations on the hillside, where the monazite sand is scattered through the red loamy soil for several feet below the surface, and even scattered through the underlying rock. Nearby is a fine exhibit of the new Welsbach burners and illustrations of their manufacture from the monazite. At night the entire build ing is illuminated by these lights a practical illustration ot the use of the monazite sand. The phosphate collection illustrates also how these expositions can be made of decided educational value. So much has been said during the past few years about the Charleston and Florida phos phates that but little attention has been given to these deposits in other States. Phosphate has been found in a number ot places in Eastern North Carolina, and in one point, Castle Haynes, it is being worked constantly on a commercial scale, and tbe crude material is being shipped to Wilmington, Charlotte, Baltimore and other places. It occurs mainly as a fine gravel from one to tour feet in thickness and at a depth of from three to eight feet below the surface. It is overlain by sand and underlain by shell limestone. The pebbles usually vary from less than a quarter of an inch to an inch in diam eter, in tbe North Carolina exhibit is a section showing the character of this for mation from the surface soil down to the base of the phosphate gravel, and near this is exhibited, in addition to the crude ground phosphate rock, a number of samples ot the manufactured acid pbos phate and other commercial fertilizers, exhibited by the Navassa Guano Co., and the Powers & Gibbs Company, of Wil mington, and the Charlotte Oil & Fertili zer Co., of Charlotte. Adjoining this also is an exhibit of pyrites from Uaston county, N. C, showing the crude material in large blocks weighing several hundred pounds each, and tbe pulverized pyrites and sulphuric acid manufactured 1'om it by the Charlotte Uil & .Fertilizer Co In a window above this exhibit is also a large glass transparency, illustrating the methods of phosphate-mining at Castle Haynes. The more important gold, silver and copper mines are represented by speci mens, a few of which weigh nearly 1000 pounds each, though the majority are much smaller. There is one splendid block of auriferous py rite from the Rudis sil mine, Mecklenburg county, which weighs about 800 pounds, and has an assay value of $160 per ton. Another fine block of ore from the Conrad 11 ll mine, which may be considered as both of copper and gold ore, is of nearly tbe same weight. Perhaps the most attractive features about the gold exhibit are the two gilded casts of tbe nuggets found during the past summer at tbe Crawford mine, id Stanly county. One of these contained Latest U. S. Gov't Report (5? eight and the other ten pounds of gold. The mica exhibit shows the clear cut and the uncut mica of various sizes, and also ground mica, prepared from what was formerly the scrap of waste atout all the mines. The kaolin eample represent only a half-dozen or more important deposits in the State, mainly in Jackson county. The most important of these is that near Webster, which is being operated by the Harriss Clay Co., and from which kaolin is being shipped to a number of factories at Trenton, N. J., and other places. There are samples of both crude and tbe washed kaolin from this mine in the collection. There is here exhibited also a case which contains a lot of beautiful Belleek pottery-ware prepared from this Jackson county kaolin by tbe Ceramio Art Co., of Trenton, JN. J. In tbe same case with this pottery are placed samples of fine white kaolin -om Jackson county, feld spar from Mitchell county and pure white sand from Wayne county. The building-stone collection is probi ably the most impressive part of the North Carolina mineral exhibit. It con tains blocks of polished granite from some two dozen different quarries, showing a great variety of colors, from the white Mount Airy granite to tbe "black granite" (or norite) from Anson county, on the Carolina Central Railroad. These gran- tes represent every variety of texture, rom the fine grained, compact material ike the monumental granite of Moores- ville, Iredell county, to tbe coarse por- pbyritic Scotch red granite found on the Atlantio Coast Line Railroad m Wilson county, and on the Carolina Central Rails road in Anson county. There "IsTalso a handsome cottage monument cut out of the Iredell granite from Mooresville by the Charlotte Granite Co., which shows how this stone is adapted for monu mental purposes; an excellent oxbibit of Belgian block and curbstone from the Kirk Mountain granite quarries in Rowan county, which shows, the excellent works ing qualities of this tougb, durable gran ite, and a beautiful shaft of nearly white Mount Airy granite, which at a little distance resembles marble. A magnifi cent slab of this latter granite, twenty- eight feet long, seven feet wide and eight inches thick, stands near tbe front en trance of the Mining and Foresty Build- m a a. a m . m I t ing. Tbe deposit ot granite trom wnicn this slab and shaft were taken near Mount Airy is bare of trees over an area of forty acres. In quarrying, the rock peels off nearly parallel to tbe surface in immense sheets, often nearly 200 feet in diameter, and slabs and shaft nearly uniform in thickness and more than 100 feet in length can be easily secured. The magnifientslab on exhibition here illus trates the excellent working qualities of this 6tone. One oi the handsomest pieces of brown- stone and work ever exhibited from a Southern quarry is a carved doorway and vase, which form a part of this North Carolina buildineBtOBe exhibit. These come from the quarry of the Go- nella Brothers at San ford, and are ex hibited by them. Another interesting and attractive feature of this exhibit are tbe large blocks of black granite or no rite, which is really an eruptive igneous rock, and is foand in considerable quan tities on tbe Carolina Central Railroad in Anson county, near where the railroad crosses the Pee Dee river. The collection contains also several blocks of marble of black, pink and nearly white color from Swain and Cher okee counties; of a beautiful, fine grain, black serpentine, from near Patterson, in Caldwell county, and a mottled, serpen tine, from Wake county. The North Carolina mineral water ex hibit is another one of the attractive fea tures in this building. They are brought together here in half gallon packages from nearly all of tbe more prominent mieral springs in tbe State. Showing the pratical uses of stone material in an important way, there are placed on tbe west side of the North Carolina exhibit a number of photographs and one large . r . t i n a ! transparency in toe wmuow, liiuutrunug the macadam or stone roads which are now being constructed in Mecklenburg and a number of other counties in the State. Tbe specimens are all carefalfy label led, so that a stranger in passing through the exhibit may get an intelligent idea of the State's resources as far as they are represented in this exhibit without hav ing anyone on hand to explain tbe situa tion to him. Nile Figures for 111 Years. Tbe figure 9, which came into the cal anderon January 1 1889, will stay with us 111 years from that date, or until De cember 31. 1999. No other figure has ever bad such a long consecutive run, the 9 itself has only once before been in a race which lasted over a century that in which it continously figured from January, 1,1889, until December 31,1999 a period of 111 years. The figuras 3 and 7 occasionally fall into old combinations but neither of them has ever yet served for a longer period than 100 consecutive years in our calender since the present mode of calculating time was established It is also clear that from their relative position among the numerals it is an im possiblity for either of tbem to appear in date reckonings continuously for a longer period than a century.
