Hillsboro Recorder. TUBUSHED BT C E. PARISH. F. N. STRUDWICK J Ed's. fcPropr's THURSDAY, - - AUG. 11, 1887. Salutatory. v To day, Ihe 11th day of Aogust, A. ' D. 1887 we enter upon the broad field of Journalism, not entirely without gome misgivings of what may bo our fate in the future, nevertheless, wo take the etep with a Bteady and deter mined purpose of mind to give to our patrons a Newspaper worthy the pa tronage of an intelligent people, we therefore hope that our little paper may find its way into every house hold and meet with a favorable and cheerful reception by all. In marking out the policy and de fining the principle which shall gov ern the conduct of this paper, we fihail endeavor to avoid the "extremist" on the one side and the dull indifference on the other, to speak plainly what we mean, and take a firm and conser vative sUnd on all matter effecting the public welfare, recognizing and conceeding to others the right to think, aet and speak for themselves. To our brethern of Ihe Press we be speak for ourselves their courtesy and favorable reception as members of the Craft, and it will always be onr plea sure to extend to them the right hand of fellowship as co-operators in tho grand and noble purpose of elivatiug bis fellowrnan. From the well known position we cave always oocnpied in private, as- well as in pnblic life, it is needless tell the people of North Carolinthat we are Democrats, aud thatfhis pi per, upon all questions ofPclities will be thoroughly Democjarljc, but niton this, as upon all things elee, tempo rate. . We have giVen to it that familiar appellation,'''" Uilleboro Rxcobdeb and thus; in name at least, revived one ofthe ancient landmarks of Ilills- bovff a same fur more thin sixty even years venerated and esteemed as a louse-hold treasure; and may we hope to continue for it the justly earn ed reputation of truthful and relia ble," which it had while edited by that rentable and good man Dennis Heartt. With charity to all and malice to none we hoist our sails and launch our bark upon the troubled and di Tmified reas of public opinion . J Our Condition Financially. The Treasury at Washington now holds about 225,000,000 in gold and nearly or quite the same in silver. This ia two much money for any government to have, and it is not tin reasonable to suppose that wild and extravagant legislation will be the result. This is not all, under and through the Internal Revenue there is annually collected from the peo ple about S 150,000,000. If the necessities of the Govern ment required the ctllectiia of this vast sum annually from the people, they would not complain, but it dos not The obligations of the Govern moot Lave been all paid ranch faster than necessary aod much faster than the good of the country required. Wlile the Treasury u full to over flowing with these hundreds of mil lions lying idle the people of the country have been deprived of many safe investments, aod more straitened than ever before. Then we think a reduction, or rather an an abolition of the national taxes is imperatively demanded. Down with the war tax, down with the Internal Revenue. The Railroad lrom Clarksville Ya., to Oxford N. C, is now under full Lead way and it is corfilontly expect d thm oy December next will reach the latter place; then in the language of the 'State' "Push the Road to Dor. ham,' this short link.connecting, these jrat line of the U. aud D. mast be iad, it will give to our people a ahor ter and cheaper route to Richmond aud the Northern cities and a il m terially to the wealth and prosperity ot parham as well as to the city by the 'James.' That abort line of only 28 miles must Le bnilt, our neigh bors pf Durham will be as ready in this, as they have always been in all other matters i f great importance, to dance, to the mutic uamo the a-mount. We need and mast have a Good Vale School in FillshoroV . This old town for almost a century past and np to quite a recent period, enjoyed the reputation, aud was justly notod for its Ads Male Schools. Many a man of to-day occupying high place of pnblio trust and usefulness in the country received bis pre paratory training nnder the skilful hand of the lamented William Bingham, oa the kill at the Academy." Bingham tu suc ceeded by Dr. Alex, Wilson, at the Load of'tlie "CalJwell Iuatitatj;" than earns Col C. C. Tew, sud bat for the lute war be tween the States, would have been a flour ishing Military Sohool to-day. Bat tuess grand institutions of learning have poasod away and we have had no Male School only for a short time siuoa their d y; then we repeat: we need and must have a good live Male School. If any one will take the pains, ho can count np between thirty and forty boys in town of the propor age, and who ought to be at school. Will oar peo ple tako tome iaterest in tho nutterf We call upon the parents to consider it Will it not be much better to have a gor d School at homo than to be co upelied to send oar boys from home for an education? Iu regard to Female Schools, we are par ticularly fortunate, we have two, one nnder the control aud management of the Mioses Nosh and Miss ICHock for young ladies, the other conducted by Miss Alice Heartt and Mrs. Maty Bragg for girls aad small boys. These schools for hluieucyuud thorough trainiug cauuot be surpassed any where in the South. . We iutend to agitata this nutter until we get the School. We have conversed with gentlemen in the country, as well as in town and fiud that they arc Ukiug a deep inte rest on t':e subject gad will be ready to frrVard it Some Old Papers. We' sec from onr contemporary the "To hrfeco riant" that ha has baon favored by a friend with some old papers ot the year 1854 among them the "Spirit of the Age," once published in Raleigh as a temperance orgin.

It seems there was vry little Editorial in the Recorder'' of that date, bat many ex trees and advertisements interesting to the people of this day. We eopy only a few: THE ELECTION. Clonal v.

We are undoubtedly for Mr. Cleve land for President in preference to any other roan in the United Btates, and we feel snre that Mrs. Cleveland is a most excellent, nice, pretty and bright lady, but we are utter'y dis gusted aud nauseated at the many lit tle silly pieces we see in the papers in rei'ereuc. to her toilet, ber walk, the shoes she wears, bow she tits, how she talks and laughs a thousand oth er things utterly simple.

Easbeeaud Speir Wnitnker sold the Atlantic Hotel property to the highest bidder, says tho Newt and Vbtemer ot a late date, et noou to nay. A syndicate of North Carolina gentlemen, headed by Julian S, Corr, Esq., the others being Messrs. A. B. Bruuuh aud Ed win Barnes, of Wilaou, and Dr. Blacknall. become the pnrohosera. The syndicate propose making the "Atlantic" the popular resort of the South, by beau tifyiutf the premises, adding all the mod ern eouvcuieuces and comforts, putting in ehrttric lights, erecting improved bath Jfjonses and p'aoing the property in charge oi tue not caiere in mo country: Xiie "summer capital" in the hands of these na tive Korth Carolinians is going to be made to blossom like thj rose. The event of the season transpired to day, Mr. and Mrs. Julian S. Carr gave oneot their charocteribtio surf parties. More than 221) persons were entertaiued at the pavillion upon the beach.

Wo copy from the Niicsand Obser ver the following items of news: Expulsious, seizures and " reprisals continue on the border land between Germany and Franco. Such a course is not likely to lesson the ill feeling existing between the two countries. Mt. Holly, where the Grange En campment is to be held, is a tittle town on the right bank of the Cataw ba river In G teton connty, and on the Carolina Central .Railroad, near Charlotte" It is the'eeutre ot one of the richest agricsltnral regions in the State. It ia beautifully situated aud is beautiful in itself. Nine persons it seems, were victims of the murderer near Macon, Ga, A whole family wss destroyed with the single exception of one member, that exception being the man who com mitted the crime. What punishment could be too severe for such a crimit nal ia a rjnestinn that occurs to every mind. The forfeit of but one life seems altogether iuadeqtute to the butchery ot nine innocent people There i no more awful deed in the annals of crime. There seems to bo conclusive proof ot the guilt of the eldest sou of the murdered head of the family. " A good corn crop is promised in Kansas, Missouri and Iowa, but small yields in Illinois and Indiana. The newspapers have been trying to deUue the word "kiss" lately. The medal nhonld be given to the man who sai l " kiss is a noun and at the same time a conjunction." Gently we now turn to the contem plation of cool waves. Cold blasts will follow and blizzards are not far oir in the future. It is all in a life time. m REGAINS HIS BRIDE. Waxeboro, Ga., August 4. Last night Mr. Charles Elrod, accompan ied by a dozen armed men, went to the residence of William Stoddard, where EIrod's young wife was held imprisoned by her father, and after a sharp brush succeeded t in capturing the girl. Elrod is eighteen Tears old sod the son of a substantial far mer. Fr a year lie has been enam ored of Mie Lucy Stoddard, the fourteen year old daughter of a con tractor of this place. Stoddard ob. jected to Elrod as a son in-law and forbade him the house. The lovers met in sncret. bowevoi, and planned a runaway marriage, which was so lemiaed by Ihe Rev. Mr. Zimmerman. Mr. Stoddard, as soon a be heard of it, sued out a warrant against El rod for abduction, and disturbing the ynnng conpje at midnight, he drag ged Klrod to jil and took the young bride borne, where she wss put under lock and key. Elrod was discharged from jail on a technicality, when he at once org t nixed his friends and pro ceeded to Stoddard's house, intent on bloody work if necesary. The gnards there showed fight, bat no appeal to firearms was made. While one party engaged Stoddard and his friends in conaultation anoth er prty stole into the house through the tank door, soenred the girl and fled. Several parting shots were fir ed by the discomfited guards. For thh Reoobder. THE GISLS. . DEDICATED to MISi F. C. 8. ' ' Anions the manv thoughts, that doss through winds most clear in youths fair prime, Are those that do not seem to lati -Beyond a few brief hours of time. We think of times that we have had With girls we love, not less, but more Than wheu we with them, theu, were g'ad, because we'd nothing else in store. 'Twos pleasant then to sit and chat And while pleasant eve away . And when 'twits late wa d tnka onr haL And come again some other day. We Utile thought in those bright years, That memory's casket, filling yet Would recall to na the times and ways That now we cannot well forget. Sweet lips were those we asked to kiss, On plea that we were soon to leave, And might not theu secure the bliss, That we might now obtain with ease. It seems that there ia always one Whose memory fills a louging spot When absent ; while we know that we When out of sight-are soon forgot. v . ht Edlooo. Sunday Night, Aug. 7, 1887. A WARItEN COUNTY GIRL'S PLUCK, The Warren ton Gutetlt says: Our friend and neighbor, Mr. W. O. Plummer, escaped a horrible death the other day by the presence of mind and bravery of his fllteen year old daughter, Hiss Sue. Sue was milking one of the oowa and her fath er was standing by her. Iu the pen was a fine three year old Jersey linlL .Before he was aware of what had happened, the bull had knocked Mr. Plum mer down from be hind, and when Miss Hue saw him, the en raged animal was standing over ber father with one of bis horns ou his throut, pre Earing to goad him. Without a mowuts esitation she seized him by the horns, and with super natural atrVsugth, minaged to pnll the suimal's head a little to one side, wheu Mr. Plummr seized him by tue nose, mm nose ana nora noit they managed to stop him until his son, Wal ter, (who was iu aa adjoining lot) ran np and bout him off with a stick, it was a narrow escape and Mias 8ue is a heroine. Mr. Plummer was badly bruised. We take from the " Richmond State the following items : Chicago, Aug 3. The Time's epe cial from Evansville, Ind , referring to me sinicing oi laua in i ngg coun ty, Ky., since the earthquake Monday night, says: "About midnight every body was awakened by a sharp shock and bad barely gotten to their feet when the earth, with a shaking, dizzy motion, suddenly sank five feet, car tying houses and terrified darkies with it. 1 be scenes that ensued baf fie dissolution. The negroes tell on their knees, and in freuzied tones, 'prayed to the Lord to save them.' Utners began shouting and praising the Almighty, and ever and anon caating an upward glance to eee if the chariots of fire were not descending. Added to this pandemonium was the intense darkness which prevailed, the moon being completely obscured by heavy black clouds which bung very low and like a pall over the doomed district. Rumblings were heard from tbe depths below, which gradually be came fonder, and numerous springs bidden for years suddenly fouud an opening and began to bubble upward in constantly increasing streams The terrified inhabitants, not pausing for the household goods or chattels, gath ered their offspring and rushed away from the doomed pot, and some of them are still putting a much dis tance between them and the sinking land aa pooeible. The loss to proper ty ia incalculable. A large area of corn and tobacco is a total loss. Newport, Ark., Aug. 3. A mob of one hundred armed men rde into Jacksonport about 1 o'clock yester day morning anj took Leonard Doyd, the stianected wife murderer, from jail. They started fqjr the snburba, but Boyd snatched a nSe from a man riding beside him, and running about ten yards, then turned and fired twice, bitting one man. The mob fired a volley at Boyd and then rode over him, firing into his body until their guns were unloaded- More than 200 bullets entered his body. Equinoctial Stormi. X. T, Baa. The so called Equinoctial atorm is one of the things that most people never lose faith in. It is compara tively rare for heavy rains to fall just at tbe time when the sun crosses the line, and yet if tbe weather happens to be dry at the autumn equinox, as it Las been this year, many persona appear to think ;that the order of nature must nave changed, n is true that we commonly have much rain within a few-woeks'of tbe equi iiox, but a glanc at any weather record will show that September is quite aa remarkable lor its droughts as for its rain fall The apparent fruitless efforts of the heavens to furnirh rain, as indicated by the winds and clouds of the last week in this vicinity, have, however, been Interesting phenomena, and many amateur prophets have, as a consequence, sadly shaken the confi denne ot their friends by predicting that the rquinnotial tempest was sure ly about.
