DU1UIAM, N. C, THURSDAY EVENTN'Gr, OCTOBER 8, 1891. PRICE FIVE CENTS. i f ' 5 HE WILL RECOVER ! The Doctors Say Wright Will Get " Well. A Very Doubtful Siege, bet All Is Passed. ALL ARE GLAD TO KNOW OF THIS People Who Come and CSo Hrlef Brevi ties of Interest to All Headers of Tlie Glohe. It is now tlic fourth day - since the op eration which deprived Mr. II. II. Wright of his left foot, but which gave 'him a chance of life and health, wds performed in this city. Four days are a very brief period under some conditions brief when the body is free from pain, when the heart la light and the world all ours. But when a large, vigorous and active man is suddenly stricken down by some un fortunate accident which compels him to lie for weeks helpless in his aflliction, to remain for long, weary hours in one po sition with the brain running at the rate of a hundred miles an hour w hich the doctor commands him to keep quiet and "not think," it is, well, to say the least, Pretty tough. Vir. Wright is a large man and an active man a man who has plenty of business on hand, and who is always laying plans to give himself more. He is interested in many enterprises to which he gives his personal attention and which takes him often away from his office. Knowing all tin's his friends over the state have wondered how the confine ment consequent upon such an opera tion would go with him, wondered if he would bear up under the physical suf fering and meet his misfortune with the nerve and resolution he has exhibited on former occasions. To satisfy and anticipate such inquiries The Glows interviewed the attending physician, Dr. A. G. Carr, and gained from him the gratifying intelligence that his patient was not only holding his own but improving steadily from day to day. lie thinks it will not be long before Mr. Wright will be quite himself again, and apart from the inconvenience caused by losing a limb will feel no further effects of the wound. In the meantime he is accepting the situation with his usual courage and finds consolation in the society of the many friends who call daily at his apart ments. The Globe hopes to be able at an early day to record the news of his complete recovery. DURHAM DOINGS. The Iy' Record of Current Events In the City and Vicinity.

They stopped at the Claiburn and took a look at the town. Colonel Robert Emmet Carr was engaged to do the trapeze act on the loth. Wait for the loth. Merchants who have gossamers to sell were disappointed that the Long Wet Spell did not last longer. The fellow who has no overcoat is glad. And so is shown the necessity for sometimes vary ing the temperature. The matrimonial season may now be considered to be fairly open. The Bach elor's Club is getting ready to reorganize and check the growing' evil. Colonel Walton Busbee is at the head of the movement. One parent who is a father called to-day and explained that his festive kid had been one of the fellows who pro posed to run away. Tue Globe printed The Depth of Love.

Truth. no moonshine about the boys. It was all solid facts, and some one had better look out if they expect all the boys home at roll call. A Charlotte special of yesterday says: Mrs. George B. Hanna, the wife of one of Charlotte's best citizens, dropped dead on Seventh street this afternoon at G:00 o'clock. The husband and wife were re turning home from another portion of the city when suddenly without the least warning Mrs. Hanna fell dead. Much sympathy is expressed for the bereaved husband. Professor Hanna is the assayer at the United States assay office in this city. Notwithstanding the number of houses going up in every part of town they are not enough by several hundred to supply the demand. The number of people who want to rent houses and who can't find them would suggest to some of the boom ers who have money that a number of neat but in expensive houses put up to rent would prove just now not only a safe but a profitable investment. If you doubt this put an advertisement in the city papers and see how many applica tions you will have before night. Those who have tried it have had to take to the woods.' COMING AND GOING.

While we always like to print the the news, the news to daj' is of such a character that we will not print them. It is told that a dashing oung man who only recently was married, at the court house, eloped to day, because he was about to be arrested for getting goods under false pretenses. His wife is here but the 3'oung man with a brief honey moon has gone. Well, it may be best for the girl that he has gone. Let us hope that it Is. Particulars in detail will come later. Sickness Among Children, Especially infants, is prevalent more or less at all times, but is largely avoided by giving proper nourishment and wholesome food. The most successful andYeliable of all is the Gail Borden "Eagle" Brand Condensed Milk. Your grocer and druggist keep it. l I If Mwi - V i : V U !U il 111 11 AS IT NOW GOES UP !

Now it is going up again and again that ends it. With good weather and nothing ( to hinder, the college will doubtless be opened the first of January as was finally suggested and printed by Dr. Crowell. All of Durham is hopeful and will be glad to see the magnificent building open its door on the new year, and all of Durham will do its share toward en tertainment and toward making the school what it should be. ' The misfortune v. hich befell the col lege was the misfortune of Durham and so ail would be glad to see the doors thrown open from a completed building which w ill do so much. . Y. M. C.

Thornton Gilbert is in the city in the interest of The Young Men's Era, the authorized organ of the associ ations, and it is hoped that many of the members of our association will sub scribe for it. BUSINESS ANNOUNCED EN" Important to Those "Who Do Not Pay Bills Promptly. A number of bills are due us on sub scription and advertisements, and many of them are worn out in being carried around for a year or more and still they are not paid. The editors of both The Sun and The Globe have turned over a new leaf. They expect pay for value received. Un less these accounts are paid, after a rea sonable number of presentations; or sat isfactorily arranged by calling on the editors of the Durham dailies, a list will be made of names and amounts and pub lished in the respective papers. This matter must be attended to at once. A TRAGEDY. What Colonel Some One Wrote to Colonel John McWilliaras. It seems that Col. Johu Scales tried to choke our own boy, Col. John McWil liams. It seems that Colonel John tried to drown Col. Rev. Scales by pouring much ice water down his shirt. Tite Globe, which always prints the stun, gives this letter frcm Johu'i girl: "I said tell Will to tell him that I said if I had been there when that negro said if John had been down there, he would hav-hurt him, when John handed him the ice water and it only drowned him, I would of knocked him flat the negro." Gallant Rufus Choate. On a pretty girl saying to Rufus Choate, lI am very sad-you see," he repKed, "O, no; you belong to the old Jewish sect; you are very fair-I-see !" Nothing adds so much to the beauty of a fair girl, as a clear, bright, healthy com plexion, and to secure this pure blood is indispensable. So many of the so-called blood purifiers sold to improve a rough, pimply, muddy skin, only drive the scrof ulous humors from the "surface to some internal vital organ, and disease and death, is the inevitable result. On the contrary, Dr. Pierce's Golden Medical Discovery strikes directly at the root of the evil, by driving the impurities entirely out of the system, and with a fresh stream of pure blood flowing through the veins, nothing but the softest and fairest of com plexions can result. The first symprom3 of heart disease are short breathe, fluttering, faint and hungry spells, pain in side, swollen ankles, for which Dr. Miles' New Heart Cure is a marvelous remedy.

An Interesting Case In Which Promi nent Tarties Figure. MouxtAiry, N. C, October 7. Mr. Rafus L. Haymore, a young attorney of this place. has just returned from Ashe county court and brings news of a trial which stirred that coanty from centre to circumference. It was the case of Jno. W. Davis, who was tried for bigamy. Davis used to live in Surry county and wa3 married in 1877 to a Miss Marshall, who lived near Westfield. Later Davis went to Ashe county but never took his wife. After living there several years hewasmar- i wtnA "rr tit .. . i i.j a .jxijss uarren wnois.a rjeauu- . , , . ful younsr ladv and well connected. This year the fathers and mothers-in- law of the two wives swore out a warrant for the arrest of Davis and he was thrown in jail. At the court last week his trial came off. Thomas Settle, Jr., of Rock- plngham, GeorgeBower, of Ashe county, and R. L. Haymore, of this place, were his counsel. Davis claimed that he thought his .wife was dead when he married Miss Warre'n. The counsel for the defense proved that his first marriage was unlawful, but the jury decided "guilty" and he was sentenced to seven years and four months . in the.state peni tentiary. His counsel took an appeal to the supreme court. The trial excited supreme interest and feeling wa3 bitter against Davis. A BIG CONVENTION. A Durham Township Sunday School Con vention Soon On.
