"All right," reply ed ye Merchant, "and we will see.' So ye Eddytor pvtte ys line in his papyr : WANTED A DOUGE. JOHN JONES, 2153 Old Street.

TliR strike of the coal miners in Kan sas is spreading gradually. The zinc smelters of Pittsburg, in that state, have been c ompelled to shut down and distress and privation ate rapidly beginning to assert themselves. Popular sentiment continues with the strikers In THESE qtliet, sweltering days when basinets of all kinds is at a gener.il stand still, it is gratifying to note that the doctors are idle also and that the druggist! have time to close doors on Sunday daring church services and en joy the day. In this respect Durham is unlike the great cities, where, when others are not enjoying their enforced leisure the undertaker gets in his best work. Thk death of Sknatok STANFORD, the California multi-millionaire, closes one of the most remarkable careers in the history of a nation w hose really great men have, almost without exception, come from humble beginnings. His so cial and political triumphs no less than his wonderful success a iinancier, show what brains and energy can ac complish in a country w here resources are not wanting and furnish an example which all young men should emulate. VANDALISM. Washington Duke, with all bis money, is an unhappy man and carries the sign of it on his face. As the years creep on he feels more and more the burden which he has placed on the tobacco growers of his native state. And when his life goes out, what a picture will come up before the old man of poverty stricken homes, of mothers and children in want, and the cries of their misery will make unwelcome music for his dyinir hours. No wonder the old man wears a troubled look. Harman's Winston Tobacco Journal. The above is the most infamous, brutal, fiendish, diabolical and ghoulish attack which we have ever read in a newspaper But it is Harman writing with his pencil over a new made grave. A jackal, with his brute instinct, would have more re spect for the dead, and more considera tion for the living, than Harman has displayed. This miserable vulture, who sees on a father's face the indellible lines of sorrow traced there by the King of Terrors of grim and relentless death the demise and burial of a daughter all the world to him comes out in his slimy sheet and desecrates the grave and ma ligns the living. But Harman thinks that because ink is black it is made to blacken. When death took from Uncle Wash Duke his only daughter, Sorrow struck him its greatest blow. While all thought that it could well deal gently with him now, here comes a miserable cur and tries to prove that a great grief for a daughter dead, was on account of the fact that a man had not paid three prices for to bacco. If there is any glory in such wretched attacks ; if there is any honor in disturb ing the sanctity of the hearthstone ; if there is any justice in brutality and in villainous vileness emanating from the craven heart of a cheap ass who lives in Winston, then Harman should be happy. But The Globe says that such an attack, at such a time, has no precedent, and that the garbage which would utter such things is a despicable scamp who would hesitate at nothing and who mocks the name of man. Were hell industri ously raked with a fine-toothed comb, the combined production would be a gentleman compared to the man who so heartlessly and wantonly talks about an honorable gentleman whom Grief and Sorrow have overtaken. A CHANGE IS COMING. The Sunday Advertiser, of New York, has set a new pace. It proposes to do away with anything approaching a blanket sheet. I It wants but two cents for its Sunday issue, and it gives all the news in sixteen pages. This may be a death blow to space writers, but it is a happy relief to those who read Sunday papers. And what's the logic? A busi ness man who would go to much trouble to buy goods at "bottom figures" has been paying high prices for an adyertise ment in a forty page paper a paper whose pages are never read. When business men learn that a half page ad is lost in forty pages and that it is read in a sixteen page paper, then the triumphs of padded sheets will end. All is progression these days and we are glad to note thai the Sunday Adver tiser has set the pace. Of the new de parture in Sunday journalism, the New York Herald sensibly says: "Colonel Cocr brill is to be congratulated on his new departure. He has sent forth the Sunday Advertiser reduced in size and reduced in price. Colonel Cockekill believes that the people want a smaller paper on Sunday, lie also believes that with a small pnper the public want a small price, and lie therefore i educes it from live cents to two cents. We feel assured that the colonel understands the needs of his constituency and that this enterprise is not in the nature of an ex periment. How ever, should the readers of the Sunday Advertiser at any time de sire to return to the old form and the old price they can be readily accommodated. Colonel Cockekill has our best wi-hes in his new undertaking."' PLENTY LEFT. Notwithstanding that most of t lie ara ble land in possession of the government open to citizen occupation has already been taken up there et remain nearly a billion acres which have not been dis posed of. To be exact ti e total number i 966,110,383 acres, of w hich about 969, 520,600 are located in Alaska and 576, "(?. ?S1 in the state and territories. These are the figures afforded by the Drovers' Journal in a late editorial. Or ta!u portions of this large area are well suited for settlement, a good portion of it is reclaimable either by irrigation or drainage, while other portions of it are inaccessible mountain regions A lanre portion of this is that yet unsurveyed in the Arctic cold region of Alaska. Of these public lands, exclusive of the mili tary and Indian reservations that may be within their borders, Montana alone has 74,533,148 acres, New Mexico and Arizona 54, 720,853 and 54,608,531 acres, respec tively, aud California has over 00,000,000. Colorado has nearly 48,000,000, and Ne vada something over that number. Wy oming has more public lands than Cali fornia, North Dakota has about 21.000,000 and Nebraska 10,790,332 acres unre claimed. South Dakota has 3,000,000 acres, and Utah and Idaho vacant space ranging from 3000.000 to :!S,000,000 acres. Minnesota, Oklahoma and Arkan sas have at least 5,000,000 each. Florida nearly 3,000.000 and Louisiana over 1,000,000. With the exception of Oregon, which has not so large an un occupied area as California none of the other states has approximately similar vast areas. But most of them have more or less unoccu pied territory. Mis.-issippi has 978,418 acres, Michigan 774,232, and Kansas, Mis souri, Wisconsin and Alabama areas be tween these figures. AS TO NEWS. The Globe, in its reckless, rolickint; way does not care to make much ado over its news when it is news. But this week The Globe printed exclusively the news of the Wilmington bank failure, it printed the verdict in the Lizzie Bokden case and yesterday, it printed ahead of this morning papers the death of Le- land Stanford As to the exclusive city news The Glohe has always gotten there, with both feet as ii- circulation will show. We are printing a paper for Durham people, and those who steal and borrow the paper should remember that now is the time to subscribe The Globe is printing the news for the most part and the files of the paper where the news was printed are offered in evidence. It is already apparent that the Ohio campaign this year will command general interest The prospects of the parties in that state are being discussed witli a more than ordinary manifestation of interest for an off year, and the possible effect of the success of one or the other on the future of the parties in the country is re ceiving consideration. The source of this interest is of course in the republi can candidate, who is regarded, perhaps to a greater extent than any other man in the country, as representing the repub lican side of the principal issue between the two great parties, and in this relation as a possible candidate of his party in the next presidential election. The Illinois legislature has submitted to the v oters of that state a proposition to call a constitutional convention. The Illinois constitution served as a model for the present constitution of Nebraska and in many respects it was the most comprehensive fundamental law that has been framed by any of the states after the adoption of the 13th, 14th and loth amendments to the federal constitution. The new liquor law of Michigan places drunkenness in the catalogue of curable diseases and every offender may, if he elects, be subjected to the bi-chloride of gold cure at the expense of the county in which he lives. The experiment will be watched with interest by the students of social problems. AT RANDOM. I would speak to you in quiet, What 1 say I will not rue Frankly.

I suppose, from some other paper : SHOT HIS WIFE And Th 11 Gave Himself a I of Buck bot for the Pan of It. Leavknw orth. Kan . June 18 A. S. Arnold, hook-keeper for Denton Iiros., commission merc hants, shot hi? wife to day and then killed himself, lie sus pected that his wife was untrue to him and wanted her to agree to a divorce, which she refused tod. Mrs. Arnold is still alive, but will probably die. She was a Miss Amelia Wise, of Louisville, and niece of Governor Wise, of Virginia. Now, as I am a nephew of the late ex Governor Wise of Virginia, I w ill state that he never had a niece by the name of Amelia. And if any of his relatives ever married a person by the name of Arnold or if any of them have ever lived in either Louisville or Leavenworth, Kansas, or ever in either of the states in which those cities are located, the kinship must have i been remote, as I have never heard of tbe ; fact. I would, however, ordinarily speak 1 ing, be only too proud to claim relation : shin w ith so brave a woman as the one I referred to. For. in another account which I have seen, and which does not aav that she was a relative of Governor Wise, it is stated that after she had "in I dignantly asserted her innocence," and when her "excited"' husband, with pistol in hand, had threatened to shoot her, "she coollv folded htr arms and dared him to carrv out his threat."'
