rHE DUKHAM DALLY ttLOBE, THUKSPAY, DECEMBER 7.
THE SOCIAL CLUB! The Fourth Meeting Was a Grand Success. A Globe Reporter Gives an Account of It in Detail. IT IS AN ENTIRELY ORIGINAL FAD The t Meeting Will Be at the Home of Col. I.eo 1). Hertt, Tues day Evening. A number of Durham's society people met a few weeks a0 and organized under the name of the "Social Club of Durham." The credit of tl.is pleasant innovation i? due principally to Miss Mamie Heartt, who called the first business meeting at her 1joum and, with the assistance of half a dozen others, detailed plans for the winter's amusement. Two subse quent meetings of the club were held one at Mrs Wall's, which was denomi nated a "Literary Salad," and which, ac cording to the customary charming hospitality and thoughtfulness of the hostesH, was a success throughout; the other a "Progressive Euchre" party at Mrs. Thomas Martin's, an entertainment as pleasant and congenial as familiarity with refined social usages could make it Tuesday evening the club had its fourth meeting at the residence of Mr. George Watts, the feature of the occasion being an "Auction Party" very ingeniously originated and carried out successfully in detail by Miss Loose and Miss Beall, the guest and sister-in-law, respectively, of Mr. Watts. To one who makes the asser tion that modern society is at a loss with out its card-playing and dancing this event would have been a revelation. An air of gracious and courteous abandon characterized those who received and tended to make all feel pleased and wel come, as always is the case with the re ceptions given by Mr. Watts. "The auction to begin at 9:15" were the significant words written above the library door and speculation grew rife, until finally the time appointed came and a bag of beans, representing money to the amount of $20 , was given each one, dispelling a little uneasiness inci dent to the belief on the part of the male portion of the crowd that the money might have to come temporarily from some other source. Out of a large pile of bundles a mysterious looking parcel was selected, and after some high bid ding, became the property of Miss Beall. Its name I forget; but the contents proved to be a miniature toy with a de cided penchant for exhibiting the wo manlike characteristic and caused a good deal of amusement. "A crying need" was labelled on the next package, and Authur Lyon grew red, excited and nervous in his attempt to bid it in. He succeeded and upon opening the pack age grew redder, more excited and more nervous ; for a small red cradle was a tritle more than he had bargained for. Will Willard lost some of his facetious nesa and indulged in tears that were hardly sentimental when he eagerly pro duced two onions with age warranted, guised under the name "A cure for love." "An old maid's comfort" was the next ; there w:is a long ami deathlike pause, aud then a young lady, whose name I refrain from mentioning, stepped for ward and with courage "writ large" upon her features spent all her wealth upon the coveted article, which turned out to be a teapot. Memory fails me and I cannot give the names and contents of the other packages. Some of these were well worth purchasing, the handsomest being a souvenir spoon bought by Fred Green and "A strapped tag" by I. E Avery. Laugln'ug comments calling forth i(uick repartee were the order of the day and "Nods and becks and wreathed smiles" were in abundance. The last purchase was made, and then the guests were ushered into not the hackneyed "sumptuous repast" nor the still more tiresome "elaborate supper"; though, as a matter of fact, the hostess combined the nicer (iualities of both. It was a quiet, rerined ami elegant supper, and, presided over by Miss Loose and Beall, was, of course, a perfect success in every particular. The ladies pres-ent were Mesdames Walts. Carr, Martin and Murray, Misses Heartt, Matilda Heartt, Klutz, Wall, Beall ami Loo-e; the gentlemen were Messrs Kramer, Wiley, Willard, Green. Foushte, Lyon, Yenrby, Sneed and Avery. The next meetiug of the club will be at Mr. Hearlt's.on Tuesday uight. "The latest fad"' will be its very suggestive name; the idea beiug that every persoa present will attempt to dress and talk so as to impersonate their newest hobby. LIVE LOCAL LINKS.

Jones, is quite sick at his home on Morris street. And still we wonder who are the people but the answer is the echo of j our anxious cry. At the recent meeting at Charlotte liev. T. J. Gattis was re appointed col porteur for the Western North Carolina conference. To facilitate the loading and un loading of cars this winter, the Sea Board Air Line has built a shelter near the Duke factory. The lecture for the benefit of the or- phan asylum at Oxford, to be given at j the hall to-morrow evening, should oe liberally patronized. Hargis Farthing killed two Poland China hogs Wednesday which weighed over six hundred pounds dressed. That is what we call big hogs. These are the days when the de serving poor should be looked after and when the charitably disposed need not go far to find worthy objects. Col. W. II. Shelburn, who has been suffering for the past two weeks with a raging cold, says that this is one time in his life that he would like to lose his grippe. Miss Alice Lamont is back at her old place at Ellis & Stone's, and is wel comed by her many friend who are pleased to see her again behind the counter. Mrs. Bell, who has been so extremely ill at the home of Mr. W. W. Shaw for the past week, is, we are pleased to learn, much better to day and her recovery hoped for. The Baptist State convention meets to-morrow at Elizabeth City, Rev. Dr. H. II. Marsh, of Oxford, presiding, and Rev. J. W. Carter, of Raleigh, preaching the annual sermon. With the country roads knee deep in mud and the farmers having to haul in wood and tobacco, now is a good time to talk rock crusher to the patriotic 'squires who have at heart the public welfare and the county's interest. The new residence next to the L. & D. depot, and which has been in course of construction for several months, is now completed and the yard is being filled in, preparatory to ornamentation. And thus it is that Colonel Carr con tinues to pin his faith to Durham and emphasize his belief in the town's future. The Western Tobacco Journal says: The Durham Bull factory at Durham is having such unusual demand for their famous Durham Bull smoking and "400" cut plug that during December they will work a double force of hands. In these "hard times" this is an unusual proceed ing and gives the Bull good reason for "bellowing." Says the Washington Post: Repre sentative Settle, of North Carolina, the baby of the house, is not much above the age prescribed in the constitution and hardly looks that. He has a contest on his hands, too. The contestant charges intimidation and various otner offenses, but Settle smiles and says that it sounds queer for a republican to be charged with political intimidation in the South. His friends say he "can prove a halibi." The account of the auction party at the residence of Mr. George Watts Tuesday evening, and reported by one of the gentleman present, was unavoida bly crowded out yesterday. As the character of the entertianments indulged in by the social club aae an innovation in Durham society, the manner and style of conducting an "auction," as in the case of other novel amusements, makes interesting reading. Two Lives Saved. Mrs. Ph'rbe Thomas, of Junction City, 111., was told by her doctors she had con sumption and that there was no hope for her, but two bottles of Dr. King's New Discovery completely cured her and she says it saved her life. Mr. Thomas Fggers, 139 Florida street, San Francisco, suffered from a dread ful cold, approaching consumption, tried without result everything else then bought one Kutle of Dr. King's New Discovery and in two weeks was cured. He is naturally thankful. It is such results, of which these are samples, that prove the wonderful erlicacy of this medicine in coughs and colds, tree trial bottles at K.

On the 30th day of June, 1893, there were on the pension rolls 900,012 names, an increase of 89,944 over the number on the rolls June 30. 1S92. Of these were 17 widows and daughters of revolutionary iS0ldiers; 8G survivors of the war of 1812 ; 5,423 widows of soldiers of that war; 21,518 survivors and widow3of the Mexi can war; 3,882 survivors and widows of Indian wars ; 284 army nurses and 485,045 survivors and widows and children of deceased soldiers and sailors of the war of the rebellion. The latter number rep- ' resents those pensioned on account of disabilities or death resulting from army and navy service. The number of per. sons remaining on the roll3 June 30, 1893, who were pensioned under the act of June 27, 1890, which allows pensions on account of death and disability not charg able to army service, was 450,155. The number added to the rolls during the year was 123,634 and the number dropped was 33,G90. The first payments on pensions allowed during the year amounted to $33,750,549 98. This includes arrears or the accumulation between the time from which the allowance of pen sion and the time of actually granting the certificate. Although the law of 1890 permits pensions for disabilities not re lated to military service, yet as a requi site to its benefits a disability must exist in capacitating applicants "from the per formance of manual labor to such a de gree as to render them unable to earn a support." The execution of this law in its early stages does not seem to have been in ac cord with its true intentions, but toward the close of the last administration an authoritative construction was given to the statute, and since that time this con struction has been followed. This has had the effect of limiting the operation of the law to its intended purpose. The sum expended on account of pen sions for the year ending June 30, 1893 was $156,740,4G7 14. The commissioner estimates that $105,000,000 will be required to pay pen sions during the year ending June 30, 1894 Electric Hitters.
