Skckktaky Thai y urges cogent rea sons in support of the policy of con structing a navy adequate for defense and for the protection of our commerce on the seas. Great progress has been made in this direction during the pres ent administration, but as yet only a good beginning has been made, and it is important that the work shall not be obandoned or allowed to halt. There i9 danger, however, that the present con gress, in its anxiety to make a record for economy, will neglect this matter and permit the construction of a navy to stop with the completion of the vessels already authorized. J TIIH GLOBE FOR 1891 AS THEY COME. Ellis, Stone k Co. and the Dur ham Supply Company have taken full pages in The Globe, and they have paid good prices for what they Ot. Following A. E. Lloyd carried a half page for some issues, and to day Proctor, the grocer, comes be fore you in a similar space for a time. This is evidence that advertising in The Globe is worth the money that it costs, and we are glad to an nounce that The Globe has more than double the number of sub- m scribers than any paper in the city. This we will prove at any time. THE WORLD'S FAIR FUND STANDS TO-DAY Durham Daily Globe, $ 2oO Black well Tobacco Co., 1,00 And there is nothing contingent about it.

The Old Man yesterday passed another mile stone in his journey of Life in his aimless wandering which commenced thirty-one years ago, and will end ? It has been our opportunity to many times remark that there are no days like the old days; no dreams like the old dreams; no faces like the faces we once knew and which we will know no more forever and in this brief twilight hour as we write and look back upon the old paths, more deeply are we impressed with the truthfulness and the cruelty of our belief. , Green has grown the grass for years upon the little mounds beneath which lie the forms of those whom we knew and some of whom we loved; strong and bright men have fallen upon the way and we, well we feel as young to day as we did feel ten years ago. What we hare lived for let the idle winds whisper to you; what we have not done all men know and what we have done has been a sad and sorry parcel of the who e which we should have com passed. The ten years which have passed from our majority until to day have come, some of them full-handed; and others were not only empty-handed but were beggars beside. To the begging years we gave gave our time which could have been better employed to those which came full-handed, we took but little where much was proffered. But what we have done and what we have not done is but little concern to those who read these lines but even youth strong impetuous and ambitious will at times sit down by the last mile stone passed and cast a backward glance a glance a-down the path from which there will be no returning. Did you ever- seriously figure it out that j'ou were getting old? Ilave you ever felt that time was not to be mon keyed with, and have you watched the wrinkles as they come upon your face and brow ? If not my boy, stop and look back. How long ago was it, say this Christ mas time, that you were impatiently awaiting the coming of Santa Claus? How long ago that you implicitly be lieved in that jolly old elf and how long ago was it that you were blowing horns and admiring in awe-struck amaze ment the gyrations of the wooden jump ing jack which to you was a marvel and a triumph of mechanical s-kill and ingenuity ? It was long, was it ? Ah, yes it was It is longer my boy than any of the years which are yet to come will be and yet it seems but just a little time ago. To da you are through with the tin horns and the jumping-jack you are out sparking your father's neighbor's daughter or you are walking the cold floors singing lullabys and pouring pare goric to your darling, squalling brat and yet it does not seem long? How long ago was it that you sat upon the knee of a visiting cousin or a visiting uncle or upon your mamma's knee, or upon papa's, and had related to you this narrative, substantially as follows: "One time There Was a Big Bear. A Little Hoy went into the Woods and the Big Bear caught the Bad Little Boy and the Bear Ate Him Up." It was long ao, was it? And how you listened and how you believed ! And to day as vou comb vour Chin Whiskers other men are telling you Bear stories, and you still believe. And yet you are not old. No, not very. But t ike the man at thirty one and he has lived full half his time anil maybe more and still he pursues phantoms and still he listens to the older bear stories of older men, and still he allows jumping jacks to amuse though constructed dif ferently and so he walks down the road, looking eagerly for what rosy jjryw along his path until the next mile post is reached. Then when he gets back to that sec ond childhood he lives ajain in fairy land, and other Little Bed Riding Hoods amuse him, and Cinderilla with her glass j slipper comes to bim again and then the grave with its worms and its obliv ionand then for the first time and the last time one realizes what we cannot believe to night- That we are growing old ! WORSE THAN REPORTED. The Raleigh correspondent of the Wilmington Messenger says that the stories coming from persons who live in the locality of where Abkunetfiy was administering spiritual aid and comfort to the wearied and woried Mrs. Grim sley, were worse than reported. The probabilities are that this is true. When pious parsons go round kissing the sisters of the flock in the absence of trusting husbands it i3 safe to imagine considerable. It may be a question as to whether old man Gkimsley did right in peppering the body of the divine with bird shot, but the rules of society in a general way, should be something of the sort. When Colonsl Tasso remarked that some parsons borrowed the livery of the court of heaven to serve the devil in, he drove a long wire nail and clinched it on the other side. The faith cure, in which the laying on of hands is the principal sport, is bad enough; but when it comes to the laying on of the lips, as in Aberxethy's case, it is a question which needs but little discussion to determine that Colonel Grimsley did his part very well when he drew a bead and emptied a dose of shot into the anatomy of the gay and festive cuss. Colonel Abernetuy may or may not endorse this sweeping proposition, but Colonel Grimsley will endorse it. So will honest people generally. BEAUTIFUL. Bill Nye's new verses, "A Pair of Lines to a Horse," are printed herewith, and we wish to add that Colonel Bill should now be made the poet lariatt of this country. The verses are really rav ishing: When the cowboy lights out o'er the alkali plain With a skin full of rum and remorse. You'll find him most always, in sun or in rain. Outside of what he terms a horrse. And up in New England, with abdomen blue. The Puritan, frescoed with moss. Puts cod liver oil on his wagon so new And tew it re hitches a hoss. Hut here in Kentucky, where, nature is kind And betting is middling close, You'll find the fair girls and elongated men Admiring and loving the hoce. Mr. Nye will perhaps sell county rights on these universal jobs of song.

SEND US YOUR INTENTIONS. THE GREEN GOODS MEN. The papers of the state are just now filled with statements concerning green North Carolinians who have saught to buy green goods. Reports come from several localities of where the urbane gentlemen have tru naled themselves off to New York and blown in hundreds of dollars in an effort to get counterfeit money and arrived at home only to find that they paid $300 for a pound of saw dust. Well such fools should be swindled and the law should make them guilty. In that event there would at least be less squealing. Ik it were not for the silly jealousy of some of the newspapers of the state, North Carolina could go to Chicago well represented. Will the boys fall in and have the exhibit a monument to the news papers of the state? AT RANDOM. It is a well settled fact That a man with some tact. Can keep on the buck of a mule. But the human jackass You should always let pass To ride him would show you a fool. And it might be remarked That the puppy which barked Never meant business a day. It you fool with the snare To bite he'll not dare Yet the very old Deviis to pay. And accordingly you should keep away from the human jackass and the human snarling puppies. And they are many in the iani. Colonel Whitaker predict? rain the 3d of July. This is news when news Is news, and the question comes Moating back, what are you sroinjr to do about it ': The picture of Col. Win. Yeajiby's hat which was printed Saturday, was life size yet it is true that there is no life iu it. The gentlemen who do bigbusiucs and who increase it, advertise in The Globe. The Right Truck. Oxford Day. Will North Carolinians be content for the State to be represented at the World's fair by the exhibit of the Agricultural Department only? We should have a building of our own, and we should make a show which will compare favorably with those made by our sister states. The Durham Globe iron the right road. The newspapers of the state laust pitch in and work to raise a fund. "" ...j n i i ft i We are THE CHEEK aooD DID WE HEAR YOU SAY YOU WANT A PIANO ? OR WAS IT R.TS ORGAN?

In writing us, say NOHTH gSTTM: JVOJIO OOIWEIPTY, CECIL G. STONE, Manager, RALEIGH, NT. C And we will get it sure, and you will get the points. Let the Governor Help! Asheville Citizen. The Duritam Globe proposes to give $250 to an exhibion at the World's fair and label it "North Carolina," if no other man or individual donates a penny. But The Globe hopes, and so do we, that there will be a great many more pen nies in the form of substantial checks contributed for this purpose, and that North Carolina will have an exhibit at the World's fair that will do the state credit. But how is this to be brdught about ? It occurs to The Citizen that the governor w.ould be the proper person to give the thing a start. A powerful ad dress from hira might awaken the peo ple to a full realization of what North Carolina must miss if it is not so gener ously represented at Chicago as to at tract the attention of a goodly percen tage of the visitors. At the present time we are not going to anticipate the gov ernor and point out the immense advan tages that such an exhibition as that at Chicago will be sure to afford. We are only going to remind the people of Asheville that it will be a curious com mentary on their good sense if they fail to see what the turtheimost nations of the earth already see, and are acting upon, that the fair at Chicago will cer tainty be the greatest the world has ever known greatest not only as a show, but as a means of making money, of ad ding to our population and to our wealth. It will not be anticipating the governor if we say that there should be an Ashe ville exhibition whether there is one for North Carolina or not, and it is also proper and timely to remind all who are interested and who is not ? that much more of delay means that we shall be shut out altogether, Already the fair managers have begun of necessity to re fuse more space to some foreign exhibi tors who see what if we see we have yet to act upon that the World's fair at Chicago is an opportunity- that comes but few times iu the life of any one genera tion. As to The Durham Globe's 2.j0,may it get three cyphers to it, and on the right side, too. More power to Fairbro ther's elbow ! The fund for the World's fair shows that $l,2o0 have been paid in. Let all people rally, and let us have an exhibit which will make North Carolina folks feel pood when they go to Chicago in '93, which is only a little over a year away.
