The Most Recherche Reception That D

Duke's last evening, from 9 to 12 o'clc -to
meet Mr. and Mrs. B. L. Duke wak
most brilliant affair. The guests wP-e
almost numberless, and during the tilci
mentioned a continuetl throng poured In
and through the house. Carriages
most 'locked wheels a3 they came anil
went. The vestibule was filled with
mellowed light that was moat enchant
ing, while the salon was all a glory of il
lumination. On the very threshold a
most hearty welcome was tendered the
visitors, and then they were escorted to
the reception room where they were
most graciously received by Mr. and Mrs.
B. N. Duke. Next the guests were pre
sented lo3I r.amTM7s?' 13. lJ.TTuTEFHWll
the hearty handshakes lacked everything
of formality and showed genuineness as
the words "I am glad to meet you," were
said. Mr. Duke's dignity and cheery
smile were very becoming to him, while
Mrs. Duke, in her elegant toilet, looked
just as pretty and happy as could be.
As each couple filed by to make room
for others, a merry conversation filled
the rooms, and the beaming face3 gave
plain evidence that all were enjoying
themselves. In due time each guest
found his way to the refreshment room,
and a thing of beauty it was too. In the
centre of a large table was a miniature
lake, around the edges of which ferns
and water lilies seemed to grow. This
was the feature of the room, but the
other decorations were of corresponding
richness. Here ribbon water ices, cream
and other delicacies were served in the
cutest souvenirs. All this time grand
strains of music filled the whole house,
and made all hearts joyful.
A look over the crowrd showed scores
and scores of middle aged ladies wearing
neat evening caps and becoming dresses;
those younger yet, wearing lovely bon
nets and costly garments of finest texture,
and blooming maidens, with uncovered
tresses, wearing gowns of rarest beauty.
A pleasing picture to look at. The gen

and each man wore his best looks and
his best clothes.

. Cured Dyspepsia and Renal Colic.
Amelia C. II., April 5, 17.
1 have been a sufferer from Dyspepsia
from my childhood, not being able to eat
greasy food of any kind, and recently
raboift Januarv, 17), bad a most violent
attack of renal colic, caused by passing a
stone from the kidneys. I suffered so
intensely that a half grain of morphine
was administered to me at onetime with
out relieving the pain, and chloroform
had to be administered. I believe that I
was at death's door. My physician, after
relieving the pain, prescribed the Otter
burn Lithia Magnesia Water" for me,
and I have used it ever since with marked
benefit. I have suffered no recurrence
cf the colic, and can eat pork or anything
else with impunity. G. W. Anderson.

REV. THOMAS DIXON DELIVERS AN
Meeting of the Democratic Executive
Committee The Soldiers' Home to lie
Opened Two Grim Relics of the War.
- - Tile. Globe Bckeau,
Raleigh", N. C, June 11, '00.
The class day exercises at Wake Forest
college Monday were interesting. There
were some inaccuracies in the list of
speakers as published. The address was
delivered by President G. W. "Ward ; the
oration by J. E. White, of Apex ; C. L.
Felt, of Emporium, Pa., being the class
poet; J. O.Atkinson, of Raleigh, the his
torian; J. B. Spilman, of Wfldon, the
-aras the secretary. The trustees ot yCt
college met yesterday morning, and last
evening. - Associate Justice Merrimon
delivered the address before the alumni.
To-day at 11 o'clock Mr. Dixon will
deliver his address, while at 8:15 this
evening Rev. Dr. W. W. Landrum, of
Richmond, Va., will preach the sermon
before the graduating class. Mr. L. S.
Cannon, of Burke county, is the valedic
torian of the graduating class ; Mr. J. S.
Hawkins, of Danville, Va., delivering the
salutatory. There will be only seven
EXECUTIVE COMMITTEE MEETING.
The meeting, of the Democratic state
executive committee yesterday was an in
teresting one. Some of its members fa
vored the immediate choice of a chair
man, while two thought the selection
should be left to the convention. It was
soon seen that those w ho held the first
view were in an overwhelming majority.
No nomination was made save that of E.
C. Smith, though mention was made both
of Jarvis and Skinner. Some of the com
mittee favored an early convention, but
those who desired a late one carried the
day. It is a good plan to have a short
and active campaign, particularly in an
off year. By and bye there will always
be short campaigns and the stumping of
the state will cease. It is too great a
strain to be put upon any candidate.
Your correspondent had quite a chat
yesterday with Mr. William C. Stronach,
who is beyond doubt one of the most
puWicpiritMjSjid . jrejiexouii- men- inthl
state. He and Col. A. IS. Andrews are
seeking for a suitable building for use aa
a home for ex-Confederates. When they
find what they want they will rent it.
Their belief is that it is best now to do
this. Mr. Carr, the president of the asso
ciation, has the same view. He says that
if a suitable building is not found here he
will provide one at Durham. The idea is
to begin in an humble way, and not lon
ger let the state rest under the disgrace
ful imputation of neglect of soldiers.
There is $3,500 or 4,000 available. The
committee can, if the home is located
here, give it personal daily attention. It
can be more economically and satisfac
torily conducted, with the means now in
sight, in this way, than at Ridgeway.
Anyway the home will be at Raleigh and
the people here will do their part by it.
The step is positively decided on now,
and there will be no turning back.
TWO WAR RELIC!.
In front of the statue of "Washington
in the capital square are two fifteen inch
shells. Thousands of people see them
daily, but very few know whence they
came. After the first bombardment of
Fort Fisher Governor Vance sent for a
couple of shells fired by the federal fleet,
as souvenirs of the gallant defence. An
ordnance sergeant went, with a negro
and a mule and cart, after shells. One
was picked up and exploded, killing sol
dier, darkey and mule. However, an
other attempt was made and two shells
were procured and sent here.
LOOKS LIKE A FAT YEAR.
Mr. Charles W. Raney told me yester
day that the Vance county farmers are
in better spirits than he ever saw them
before. For years past the weather in
May has been wet and the water soaked
lands were full of grass when June came
This year there is a happy change. The
ground is dry and mellow, there is no
grass and the crops are clean. The pros
pect is glorious. Some pessionists fear
that a season of sorrow w ill follow this
one of joy, but really it looks like 1S00 is
going to be a fat year.
A force of laborers is at work remov
ing the stains from the exterior of the
capitol, and the discolorations are very
hard to obliterate
Raleigh has a good representation at
the Grand Commandery of Knights Tem
plar at Ashevillc. A banquet at the Bat
tery Park hotel will be one of the features
of the assemblage
W. II. Pace, of this city, will be one of
quite a number of people who will leave
here for Europe this summer. He will
haw snecial medical treatment while
abroad, for a throat affection.
The United States circuit court ad
journed yesterday, having disposal of
the business before it, and Judge Sey
mour returned to New Berne. He said
he 'would soon file his opinions in the two
important suits involving the state's right
to tax Pullman sleeping cars and com
mercial fertilizers. Both of these ques
tions are interesting ones.
Much interest is developing concern
ing the Fourth of July celebration. It is
probable that there will be a $500 display
of fireworks. It is proposed to have
special trains on all the roads.
Simmons will be the nominee for con
gress in the second district, and he will
make a fine canvass. His election, it is
claimed, will be a certainty, and those
who say so ought to know what they arc
The press of the state ought to give
wide currency to the prosecutors in the
federal court of Democrats charged with
making false affidavits regarding the last
election. Jt will be a bomerang for the
Republicans, no doubt." V
Lw'niorninat St. Mark's one
of the graduates -is to marry a wealthy
young South Carolinian. This is quite
an interestinc and certainly unusual
event at a commencement. Lovers will
probabl3r make a note of it.
Rev. Thomas Dixon, who is so popular
everywhere, lectured here last evening,
and had a flatteringly large audience.
His theme was "Playing the Fool." A
wag said that the witty preacher took the
same topic in his pulpit in New York on
the 1st instant, and that Elliott F. Shep
ard was his particular illustration.
