Well enough. - - Since Captain Ashe has endorsed hoopskirts, Postmastek General Bis sell has relented in favor of the news paper profession and says an editor may, in some isolated anil exceptional cases, have a postolhce if he can get it. When the hoopskirt gets fairly along on the streets as well as the fashion plates, Colonel Bissell will no longer have occasion to blush for the room he occu pies in an already over-crowded world. Will call SHOULD liE REWARDED. Even were there no other reasons why Col. Buck Blackwell should receive the appointment for the Durham post office, there i one real and righteous reason which the people shoula ever bear in mind. In Buck Blackwell' s palmy days the days when for him gold grew on trees and wa3 to be had for the gather inr. Buck Blackwell did not use the power of the Yellow Stuff to oppress the needy but on the other hand his purse strings were always open and favors were freely granted for the asking. But, as intangibly as the restless tide slides from the arms of the longing beach reverses came and Buck Blackwell dis covered that he owed money and ha not the wherewithal to liquidate his honest debts, lie had property, ample and suflicient. to sa'isfv every claim that could be brought against him, and, honest and sturdy as he is, he turned over every penny that he had in the whole world became reduced from a prince to almost a pauper, and the result is, that every creditor will receive their dues, even to the last farthing. That is the history of a millionaire im poverished the history of an honest, an upright and a deserving man. And this man, in his reduced circum stances, asks of t'ne people of Durham to see to it that he receives an appointment which will make him postmaster of the town of which he is the faithful and fond father. There is no use for The Glof.e, which prints only the uews, to make any con trast between Honest Buck Blackwell anil a despised and despicable creature who fuiled in business, beat his creditors and endorsers, and who to day, without visible means of support,, lives like a prince and enjoys all the luxuries of an heir apparent to a throne. Let every man and woman in this city sign the petition now being circulated for Honest Buck Blackwell. ELLIOT F. SI1EPAKD DEAD. As will be noticed in the dispatches to day, Col. Elliot F. Siiei'akd-, who was the rabid and rampant editor of the New York Mail and Express, is dead. As the news is meager concerning the deep laudation of his taking off, it is im possible for us to give anything in a biographical way. The most remarkable achievement in the life of Sh epaud was his marriage to a daughter of Comodoke Vandeubilt. This seemed to have everlastingly turned his head and caused him to imagine that he was distinctly a Chosen One. lie was a man whose cheek was inex haustible, whose views were narrow, and whose grammar was harrowing. His brilliancy consisted chiefly of his dia monds, lie courted notoriety and gained notoriety which a person with any degree of modesty would have felt was unenvia ble. He used his newspaper to assist him in many municipal schemes in which he was a beneficiary. His rabid talk about the South, and his intense loyalty to republican princi ples caused him to mechanically make an ass of himself at divers times. But as it hath been said we should let the dead and the beautiful rest. His going out will be regretted by no living man. He had money and he tried to dictate he tried to be something which nature did not intend him to be. He issued checks which were never cashed at the counter of Appreciation he signed notes on his shape which De cency cared not to accept. It is well that the end has come. The man was too large for his trow sers and that tells a world of historv. MAJOR RAOLAND DEAD. Yadkin Valley News says: "The to acco men throughout the country will regret to hear tint Ma.i IJ. L. Baoland, the pioneer of the golden weed producers, is dead. iip parsed away at his home near Ilyco, Halifax county, Ya., on Sun day morning lat. Ma.jok Ka;land had reached the ripe age of seventy years. Most of his life was spent in Halifax county, near the place of his birth. "in early life he was a merchant and lived a few year in Mississippi, but re turning to Virginia before the breaking out of the war, he engaged in agricul ture, which persuit he has followed with success to the end of his days. "Many years ago he began to cultivate and improve the varieties of tobacco, and established his tobacco seed farm, the reputation of whose seed for purity and reliability have gained high favor wherever the weed is cultivated. In this he took great interest and spared no pains to bring it to perfection. On all subjects, but especially on the subject of iUJS UUliUJvAi DAlLiX UAAJ15.E, SATURuAi!, MA It OH agriculture, he was a clear, strong, forci ble writer, and his opinion carried great weight. About twenty years ago he served in the legislature as senator from Halifax, where he was the special cham pion of the agricultural classes. "But politics were not suited to his tastes and he retired to the farm, and, al though often urged afterwards, would not ran again for office. He wa3 ap pointed to make the special report on to bacco for the census of 1880, and visited all the leading tobacco centres and made a report that was exhaustive on the sub ject. "As a man he stood well among his fellows. Warm in his friendships, re fined and cultivated in his tastes, he de lighted to entertain his friends around his hospitable board. He was a Virginia gentleman in the highest sense." The Sunday schools teachers' insti tutes, conducted by Pp.okessou Hamill, of Illinois, in the Presbyterian church at this place, are being attended by good audiences. Every one interested in Sun day school work should attend these meetings, as Professor Hamill is one of the leading men in the country en gaged in this important work, and can not'fail to interest and edify.

We agree with The Durham Gloee that every printer in North Carolina should at once tile a protest with Mr. Cleveland against the appointment of J. A. Harrell, of Weldon, as public printer. He is what is known to the profession as a '"blacksmith Drinter" and would be as much out of place in the government printing office, or any other decent print ing office, as a hog would be in a hen coop. Hood's C i! res Terrible Headaches Distressed and Discouraged Health all Broken TTuoroxiglily Built xip by Hood's Sarsaparilla Mr 8. Eva Covert Of Bath, N. Y. " I am glad to have my experience with Flood's Sarsaparilla widely known, because the medi- cine has done me so much good, I think it will benefit others who are out of health. I was in a very distressing and discouraging condition. I had no appetite whatever; could not sleep well; suffered with excruciating headaches. I felt Tired and Languid, Ilad no ambition and seemed all broken down. After I had taken medicine prescribed by two of our best physicians, a kind neighbor advised me to try Hood's Sarsaparilla. I followed her advice, and the result is. I aui perfectly wall. I do not have the headacnes now, sleep well, that tired feeling is vanished, and I am bright and ambitious. I can eat heartily at every meal, and have gained in weight from 94 to 105 pounds. I do not have any distress in my Sarsaparilla stomach, and epileptic fit, to which I was formerly subject, never trouble me now. I cheerfully recommeud Flood's Sarsaparilla and do not wish to be without it." Mrs. Eva Covert, Bath, Steuben County, N. Y.
