The following meteorological summary for the month of April, 1896, is taken from the records of the United States Weather Bureau station at Charlotte: Mean atmospheric pressure 30.152 inches; highest pressure 30.484 on tbe 9tbl lowest pressure 29.866 on the last; mean temperature 65; highest temperature 94 on the 17th; lowest temperature 36 on tbe 10th; least daily range 14 on the 6tb; mean temperature for April for 18 years 59; accumulated excess of daily mean temperature during the month 152 de grees; average excess of daily mean terns perature during tbe month 5.1; pre vailing direction of wind south; total movement of wind (in miles) daring the month 5.127; maximum veolcity of wind 28 miles west on tbe 2d; total precipita tion 1.90; number of days on which one hundredth of an inch or more of precipe tation fell 8; average precipitation, tor April for 18 years 3:45 inches: total defi ciency in precipitation during tbe month 1.64; total deficiency in prcipitation since January 1st, 6.97; number of clear days 20; partly cloudy days 7; cloudy days 3; dates of light frosts 3d and 4tb; dates of thunder storms 1st, 17th, 21st and 24th; date of solar halos 30th. An unusually hot spell of weather pre vailed from the 12 to the 21st, during which on the 17th maximum tempera ture reached 94 degrees, this being the highest ttmperature -by three degrees ever previously recorded at Charlotte during the month of April, the highest previous record being 91 on tbe 29th in 1888. The mean temperature for the month, 65 degrees, was also the highest mead ever previously recorded during April. The Safest Place. Harper's Round Table. General Lee used to tell a story about a darkey that served in the war. It seems that during the heat of the battle the General and his attendants were posted od a small knoll watch ing the course of tbe action. They descried a colored soldier racing toward them, leaping over obstacles in his path, his face showing great fear. He rushed up, and fell headlong on tbe ground in front of Lee, crying, "Oh massa General, let me stay." Lee saw at once that tbe man was al most frightened to death, and useless as a soldier. It disgusted him somewhat, but his curiosity was aroused, and he asked. "Did you come here to get out of the way of the bullets?" "Yes, massa; where de generals am is de safest place on de field."

Headers of the Democrat will perhaps be interested to bear something about the events transpiring in and around Washington as well as immediately within the balls of Congress: ' While Congressmen and Senators were wrangling over tbe Venezuelan question. over the finance question and over the 1 . I jL .i v viuuan question, me gaueries ot each nouse were tnrongea with numerous spectators anxious tu see the rights of America protected m tbe one case, or, m tbe other, to see some legislation enacted that might bring about a better condition of affairs throughout the country and, in tbe case of the Cuban discussion, to eee some action on the part of Congress which might encourage and aid a strug gling people to throw off the oppressive yoke of a mother country and to inscribe their name among the free and independ ent republics of tbe world. How well the people have been satisfied I leave it for you to judge from the action of Congress on these respective questions. Tbe next thing outside tbe two houses of Congress that attracts the attention of visitors to tbe capitol is tbe Supreme Court room. The Supreme Court occu pies tbe old Senate chamber. On enter ing this room one is struck with a feeling of reverence when be looks upon tbe nine venerable judgeB of tbe law, robed in their black silk gowns, expounding the law and establishing irrevokable deciss ions. Tbe seating capacity of the room is very limited. So much so tbat at the opening of a session or when some im portant decision is pending it is crowded to overflowing and that many anxious spectators are unable to gain entrance. A bill has, however, been recently intros duced into the Senate by Mr. Morrill pro-, viding for tbe purchase of a location and tbe erection of a different building to be devoted exclusively to tbe interests of the Supreme Court. Should that bill become a law, than the legislative and judicial branches of tbe national government will be in separate buildings, and the capitol will tben be devoted exclusively to the legislative branch of the government. Several efforts have been made in this di rection heretofore, but so far ihey have all failed. THE NEW CONGRESSIONAL LIBRARY. Tho new congressional library building. situated just east of the capitol, is nearlng completion. When completed this will be one of the finest government buildingB in tbe city. It is a magnificent structure in every respect. STATUARY HALL. Washington is truly a city of statues. Almost every park is adorned with a statue of some famous statesman or war rior. Statuary Hall is, of course, given up exclusively to tbe statues of ex-Presidents, famous statesmen and noted ex plorers. Tbe most recent addition to this vast collection of statues is that of James Marquette, donated by Wisconsin, and to whioh there was for awhile such bitter opposition that the capitol police were cautioned to keep a special eye on the statue, in order that no opponent to its erection might have any opportunity to inflict any possible defacement upon it. But the feeling of opposition has died away and the statue seems to stand as securely as any of those surrounding it. THB HANCOCK STATUE. The statue of Gen. Hancock recently erected will be unveiled on the 12th inst. President Cleveland will preside on that occasion. There will be a procession, a s.al,ute from tbe monument grounds and other exercises customary on such an oc casion. A PROPOSED MONUMENT TO GIN. GRANT. A movement is on foot to erect a mon ument to tbe honor Of Gen. Grant some where within thecitv limits. Tbe move ment wl inaugurated by the Grant Me morial Association last September and through the insumentality of that asso ciation it found its wa7 into Congress, and n appropriation o $250,000 has been wired for out ol the b.ti0Dal trea8" u'ry.

The ladies interested in this movement will give an entertainment this week, the proceeds of whieh will go to this building fund, whether the build, ing be erected in Washington or else where. Of courso Washington is not tbe GDly city contesting for this honor, but apart from all local claims it would seem that Washington has some superior ad vantages, being tbe nation's capital.

Write for particulars to JACK80N & HAY WARD, April 24-tf Proprietors com The Real and theSpurious New Woman. Baltimore Sun. Is the "new woman" a myth? lio-l emphatically no, is tbe answer of Mrs Morgan-Dockrell in tbe current number of the Humanitarian. Mrs. Doekrell draws tbe line between tbe genuine and BDurious "new woman" with keen di6s crimination. "The cause of emancipation of women' she Bays, "bas come to be a sort of Cave of Adullam for a whole host of restless and discontented women, many of whose hearts never quicken for any cause outside the narrowest of mean self- interests, whose only aim in life are ex citement. license or notoriety, but all of whose idle vaporiA&a, silly exaggerations and absurdities ar iaid at tbe door of the new woman." Mrs. Doekrell oetods tbat no sane mind could for a moment entertain the idea that benefit could accrue to any man or woman, or to humanity at large, by acceptance of tbe doctrine of woman's en tire independence of and antagonism to - . r f I X men, ot renunciation oi wueaoou ox, in fact, a stand-up fiarht between the sexes for supremacy. "Dr. Mary Walker," says Mrs. Doekrell, "may found her Adamless Eden; she and her disciples for a time may defy tbe laws ot nature, tor which, be sure, nature will sooner or later exact her compensation, but :as it was in the beginning so it will be to the end man and woman must stand or fall together. It is love, the love of man for woman, of woman for man, with its se quence of domestio love, love of home, of kin and kind that makes tbe worw go round, that is under Heaven tbe good liest and loveliest heritage ot humanity. i As Mrs. Doekrell takes so healthy and sensible a view of the relation of tbe sexes, it is not strange that the picture which she draws of the ideal new woman hood is refined and attractive. Before this ideal can be realized, however, and woman be emancipated, before man and woman as peers, tbe complement ot each other, can go forward abreast and hand in hand for tbe world's regeneration, woman must first of all and of necessity work for woman. "This work lies not altogether along smooth roads, says Mrs. Doekrell, "but over mountains of prejudice and convention, not seldom through foul sloughs of calumny and willful misrepresentation, and always amid the jeers and jests of tbe unthinking mob. The genuine new woman neither asks nor desires sexual superiority or su premacy, nor ia she ashamed or aweary of ber womanhood, one is ashamed ana aweary, though, of the poor puppet, too long her representative, who not alone must needs dance to tbe tune. set, for. her by others, but must not seldom pay the piper." What ia tne type ot tbe genuine "new woman" which commends dtself to Mrs. Dockrell's approval? Let her speak. for herself. "The new woman is she who, with some of tbe ablest men of tbe cen tury, bas awakened to the fact that the time has come when tbe work of the world in all departments has need of woman; that one sex cannot sufficiently cope with the business and affairs of hu manity; that in the intellectual sphere,: as in the physical, there cannot be healthy and natural creation without the co-operation and amalgamation of all the men tal attributes, male and female; the mate superiority in philosophy, science. inven tion and conception oi abstract justice blending with tbe lemale superiority in intuition, in altruism and in tbe fuller and richer flow of the emotional life, the two bait and incomplete individualities combining and forming the perfect whole. The new woman's faith is tbat as strength of mind and body, cou'rage and resolution are glorious in man, they are not the leBS but the more so in woman. She emphatically protests against the idea that her humanity, apart from wife and motherhood, counts for little or nothing. She claims her human right co-equally with her fellow-man to full and free development or every power and faculty, and she resents and cries out against the position of being shut out from taking part in creating the condi tions of life." In reply to the argument that as the majority of women are content for things to remain as they are tbe "new woman"is making much ado bout nothing, Mrs Doekrell says the contention might with equal force be applied to tbe status of wo man in Japan, where she is a little better than a servant where the wife dutifully kneels before her lord and master to feed u.'-n, and after tbat superior animal bas Batjged bis appetite is graciously per mitted aine. iuiwitusiaiiuiog wuivu state of UMDg9 8h6 Iook! ver7 nappy and a critic who ah? that "no true f riend of woman would .nrg hke.r J hp- -r from the pedestal w.h,ch. V5 w garments with the mi -e of the arena id toil for her," a ...... .. " Mrs. Doekrell pithly says: wn" lDeD' are the tens of thousands to do wb0 nave no one to fight and toil for them' ,n e arena for whom in such cases th 6 f. Z estal means degradation or etarva.,,on7 overturn her pedestal and all, what thei awaits such a woman but cruel realization i of the fact that the pedestal was a lie, and that she bad been cheated of ber Dirm right a free reasoning, thinking, everfor- ward, moving human souir Hundreds of thousands of men, con cludes Mrs. Doekrell, are willing lor women to remain the poor doll they call a normal woman the woman on the pedestal, decked in furs, feathers and jew els.hugging the gilded fetters which so apt ly By mbolize her degradation; "but which is the likelier to be the nobler human creature, tbe more useful citizen, tbe fit" ter mother of children, the sweeter, more loyal helpmate for a true man she or the new woman?" It must be admitted that Mrs. Doek rell crivee us an admirable portrait of tbe ideal new womanhood. As drawn by her skillful and loving hand there is no.bing to reoel or to shock us, or to arouse tr that tha standard or Quality of true womanhood will be destroyed, and tht. nn its rninR will be reared a new fabrioof womanhood inferior in all rMnecta to that which we now cherish and admire. Dismissing now the intellectual and spiritual side of the new woman, one of tbe innovations that she has introduced which can be heartily approved is the freedom and method with which she takes to open exercise. This is largely due to tbe general use of tbe wheel. It bas been of the greatest bene fit to women up to tbe present time, and eventually will lead not only to greater physical development but also to a more rational sgstem of dressing: "Common sense ideas," says tbe editor of tbe Arena "as tbey pertain to woman's dress, are coming to be recognized, not in tbe sense of a fad, but as tbe very antipodes of any desire for a coarse display such as long marked the votaries of fashion, and which conventionalism bus not only condoned but upheld. Trousers were first worn by women, and tbe Athenian critics and poets denounced men for adopting them as being a feminine costume." A woman writer in tbe Health Maga zine lays down the law , in this positive fashion: "The skirt is neither sacred nor eternal, and woman will no more always wear it than she will always wear crino line or bailoon sleeves. While the skirt and bloomers are waging tbat inevitable struggle for existence that comes somes times to all things of earthly origin, you can wear what you please only be sure that it is what you please and pray for the survival of tbe fittest." This is not exactly along tbe -line of Mrs. Dockrell's philosophy, but it is another form of tbe new womanhood which may develop something better tban bloomers or di vided skirts. It is not to be sneered at because it relates to such a trifling detail as dress. Jiven Airs. JJockreu s "new woman" will throw philosophy to the wiods.qn occasion and turn her cultivated mind to the consideration of such topics. And when it comes to a matter of toilet the old woman and the new will stand upon the same platform, and both will favor a plank declaring in favor of tbe most fetching dress. No Natural Antagonism Between Iabor and Capital. Public Opinion. The right relation between labor and capital and how best to maintain it is as vital a question in tbe domain of civics as any other possible to consider. It en ters into tbe very essence of securing good government through good citizen ship." This latter is impossible among a large class so long as tbey remain in bondage to an idea that another class are their natural oppressors. ine la boring classes of this country are being and. have .boon for more tban a generation systematically .taught that capital was their enemy,and that an irrepressible con flict was pending between capital and labor. :It is not possible to have a man appreciate the duties and obligations of citizenship who looks into tho faces of his loved ones . and ,feela that they have been deprived of life's comforts or ne cessities through the oppression and rob-i bery of his employers. And yet this ia tbe feeling tbat dominates large classes in labor organizations, and it is this that makes it possible, at the will ot one man, to inaugurate a strike, which at once violates tbe rights of the publio and des Btroys tbe fundamental obugattoas of citizenship.-' Demagogues find this sen- : timont a winning one, in order to gain office, while labor agitators make it their surest means ot obtaining a living. Is it not tbe duty of all who desire good gov ernment through good citizenship to cor rect this sentiment and remove the cause which produces it? That labor organizations do not bring the best results to labor is proved by an object lessson which I will present and which all classes may study with profit: The Cambria Iron Company at Johns town., Pa., has been tbe one leading in dustry of that city for a period of nearly 50 years. It employs from 5,000 to 7,000 people. It bas run almost continuously ever since its formation and practically without a shut-down or a a lockout. Through all the panics tbat have oc curred it has still paid a dividend, and through all labor troubles elsewhere it has been without a strike. 2io labor union bas ever been permitted among its employes, but tbe company early fostered tbe spirit of buying their own homes and making the terms as easy as possible with their men. The result is that more of these in proportion to tbe general population own their own homes than can be found in any other community in America, while there is less of crime and less of pauperism among them than elsewhere on this continent. It is a teem ing hive of industry, but it is likewise a city of schools and churches with less of class distinctions than in any other com munity I have ever known. There are very few rich people there,with equally as few very poor ones. The city govern ment is also practically out of debt, and the obligations and duties of citizenship seem to prevail almost in an ideal de gree. That such a state of facts exists is due very largely to the right relation between labor and capital, and tbe absence of tbe arts of tbe demagogue and tbe wiles of the walking delegate. Tbe true doc trine bas been inculcated that the com- pa.iy would give tbe men regular and steady employment if tbey would in turn s?and by tbe company; and tbe re sult haB been more money and better times for all concerned.

I Scientific America. A phenomenon which, from its remark able character, has attracted much atten tion in Europe, recently occurred in the department ot Ciard, France, whera Mount Gouffro, a mass of rock 650 feet ib height, suddenly gave way at its base and began moving toward Gardon river, upon the left bank of which it was sit uated. The movement began on the lfith of February, and on the 23d the advance had destroyed the machinery in the pits of the Grand 'Combe Colliery -and nearly a mile of the Alais Railway, and had des fleeted the course of the Gardon 6$ feet. Six hundred persons were obliged to leave their homes at Grand 'Combe, and, a water famine having boon created, it became necessary to install an engine up stream to pump water from the river to supply tbe inhabitants of the mining cent tre. On tbe 29th tbe mountain came to a standstill, but it is believed by engineers tbat this state of reBt will be but tem porary, and that. tbe rocky mass will re sume its motion, cross the Gardon, and finally abut. against the mountain that skirts tbe opposite side of the river. Should this occur, very important-geological and topographical modifications will of course be made in the region, and it will become necoBsary to prepare new channels for the Gardon and Gard rivers. ' The cause of the accident is shown by the geological structure of the mountain, which consists of grit, green marl, lime stone ana triassic rocks resting upon a deep bed of clay. These different strata dip at considerable of an angle toward the Gardon. The mountain was there fore influenced by its own weight to fol low tbe slopeoffered it by this inclined plane. Tbe position was unstable and tbe danger imminent. Rain or the water of the Gardon must have infiltered and accumulated upon tbe stratum of imper meable clay, .and such infiltrations must have disintegrated certain points, of sup port of tbe mountain and led to its slid ing, which was prepared for by tbe very arrangement of the ground. The noise made by tbe mass while it was moving is described as having been frightful. The Woodland on the.Fara. From one-fourth to' ohevtbird of the forest lands of North Carolina are un productive of timber. Some of this land is waste land, clearly lying idle and pro ductive of nothing of value; but' far the greater part of it is Only noticeable as tbin places in tbe Woodland, where there is an opening in the cover of large trees, or wbero no young trees are to be seem beneath the old ones. Such tbin places as these are to be seen all through woods where cattle range or which are burned. It means tbat a certain part of the land of the farmer is yielding' the owner no return for tbe investment which the land represents and on which taxes' have to be paid. ' " ' - There is no denying tbat timber, lands in North Carolina, being at a great dis tance from the centres of consumption of their products, cannot ' return 1 a' high. rate of profits. Yet it is' equally as true that there is no part of the State where standing timber has not at the present time some commercial value. 1 Self-interest should make every one adopt any method of management which will en able an investment to increase its yield. The reason why more attention is not given to this evident loss from the wood land is because it is regarded as being small, and becauso it is considered a loss more of the future than of the present. There is, however, scarcely any land in the State from which, by managing it in the right way and that without extra cost, the product of timber could not be largely increased; and not only'is it capa ble ot being largely increased but tbe production could be of kinds of timber which are of more valne than much that now grows. This can be done by judi cious cutting; taking for firewood trees which have tbe least value, and leaving vigorous young white and post oaks .for ties, and pines, witb straight, bodies, lor the saw-mill. Such trees as are left, if they are fair-sized saplings, will in a short time become large enough for use. But tbe increased thickness of the growth does more than merely increase the yield ot timber; it adds largely to its value, if it is to be used at all as a building mate rial, in this way. The deep shade makes tho tops of the trees push rapidly upward to get at the light which is so necessary for all tree growtb; the lower limbs are shaded off before tbey become large, which pre vents the stems having knots in them. This gives the trees, by the time they have reached an average height, a long, slender stem, almost free from limbs and knots except at the top, and makes it suitable for fine lumber, capable of being riven into straight staves or clapboards, with little loss, or splitting straight for rails or posts. That tbe trunk requires more time to acquire a large diameter is evident, but the yield of timber for each tree will be larger; and the yield for each acre will be much larger. In fact the timbered land on the farm should be considered as much a part of the productive land of tbe farm as the meadow or wheat field. It should receive care and thought, too, for often it repre sents one-half or over of the money value of tbe farm and usually returns the small est yield in proportion to its value. But all care and attention given it should have this object in view: to make every foot of land productive, and productive of tbe highest class of timber which land of that character is capable of producing. It should be so managed that the greatest yield should be gotten in the shortest time and that there may be no interrup tion of the growth when the mature or grown trees are removed for use. Wm. W.
