A physician's advice: "If I could say only one thing to every girl and woman in the world for their health and ap pearauce, it would be only this: 'Never stand when you can sit.' Exchange. The average man does not need any advice of the kind. He always sits for comfort regardless of appearances. The men's meeting at the Young Men's rooms is now made attractive by an amateur orchestra of seven pieces . which leads the singing. Two violins, two tlutcs, a horn, organ and guitar furuish the music. The topic for dis cussion next Sunday will be Paul's question, "What shall I do. Lord?" Acts 22:10.

The second lecture of the series to be 'iven under the auspices of the young men of the Baptist church, will be de livered Friday evening at 8 o'clock by Uv. Thomas Hume. I). I)., of Chapel Hill. His subject will be "The Bound Table," and the lecture, as its name inmlics. will be strictly literary. Those who know Dr. Hume need not be told merit will be riven them. The public are cordially n - invited. The paper read by Dr. F. U. Harris, to men only, at the Y oung Men s v niuht was listened to W -' p O by quite a large number of persons maiiv rtoeole from the country bem nresent. He talked ou a timely sub iect. which was intelligently considered. "it was full of valuable suggestions and formation calculated to do ood. It is well to discuss such mat ters .is Dr. Harris spoke of otteu we think. Another of those Double Numbers which the publishers of the Youth's Companion seem to delight in offering as a pleasant surprise to its reauera, comes to us this week. A careful reading of one of these special numbers makes it easy to understand why this favorite paper rarely loses an old friend and gains so many thousands of new admirers every year. Half a milliou copies of this,"the March double uum berf are published. Mr. S. H. Allen has taken a position as travelling salesman for A.J,. Jordan, manufacturer of the famous "AaAI" brand of tine "cutlery that will cut." We have examined Mr. Allen's line of samples and are free to say we have Been no goods to surpass them. A judge of such articles himself and well acquainted with the business, having hpen encraed as a hardware merchant for a number of years, we predict for Mr. Allen good success in his new undertaking. Fair Warning. Each arid tv.ry account due. remaining unpaid on March the loth, will be put in the hands of an officer for immediate legal collection.

Since the exlensfve rains many of his old cus tomers have expressed a desire to get the water now, hence he is bringing it in earlier than usual. For the present he will deliver it only every other day at ten cents a bottle. This water is so well known and has proved so beneficial in cases of aggravated dyspepsia, scrof ula, rheumatism and other diseases that nothing need be said of its merits here. and lodged him in jail until the train left that evening when he proceeded on his way home with his prisoner. Bishop was wanted for highway robbery and murder, having assaulted and robbed a man named Hugh Hammock, a promi nent farmer residing at Mellville, Not toway county, Va., while passing along the road. The negro was ar rested but afterwards made his escape, fleeing across the line into North Caro lina. Officer Moxie, from whose cus tody he made his escape, followed in hot pursuit and traced him to Bidgeway, on the Baleigh & Gaston Bailroad. There he learned that Bishop had gone in the direction of Palmer's Springs The officer pushed on and that night captured his man and brought him through Henderson en route home Bishop was a burly, mean-looking fel low and had but recently been released from serving a term in the Virginia penitentiary. Monday morning about 4 o'clock he was taken out by a mob and hanzed to a tree not far from the scene of his crime. , : Printer Wanted. Again -we find ourself in need of an other nrinter.

C, Dear Sir: Permit me through your columns to thank the citizens of Hen derson for the many courtesies and kind attentions given my salesman, Mr. YV. S. Forster. who was sick so very long a time at the Massemburg Hotel. "Friends iu need are friends indeed. and never more strikingly true the adage than in the case of the experience of Mr. Forster while at your town dur ing the past few months, stricken by fever, amoncr strangers, hundreds of miles from home and friends. How lonesome and anxious the moments must have been, and death doubtless would have been the result ot a very serious illness but for the kind and svrnoathetic care and attention given him hv vour citizens. But Mr. Forster was in a Christian community and among friends, who, like the good Samaritan, stopped their work to min ister unto a brother in distress. How warm and hearty the good people of your town were in their expressions of friendship, and I write to express my appreciation. Yours very truly, J. 13. Lewis.

The greatest discovery of the age. Old in theory, but the remedy only recently discovered. The MICROBK KILLKft is prepared on scientific principles. It starts at the root of all disease, and cures by removing the cause of the disease. Do you suffer with Catarrh ? Have you inherited Consumption ? Have vou any Kidnev Disease? Are you afnicted with Rheumatism ? Are you troubled with Asthma ? nave you any disease that causes you anxiety or inconvenience? Have you any disease that your doctor nas pronounceu incurable ? Give tie Mierole Killer a Trial. It is no experiment nor an untried rem edy. Hundreds of persons in this city have used or are now using this medicine, and the cures effected in many cases arc miracles. It has cured thousands who have been pronounced INCUItAULE. Sold in one gallon jugs. Price three ($1.00) dollars. A small investment, when life and health can be obtained. Beware of fraudulent imitations. They are usually cheaper, as they use that method of imposing on the public. One of them held their price at ?2.50 per gallon for nearly two years. Not being able to get their medicine in at that, they have now reduced it to 81.50, which is evidence enough that it has not met with success. A good medicine sustains itself in all com munities. A cheap medicine is, the last thing on earth a suffering man wants. The genuine sold only by M. DORSEY, Druggist, HENDERSON, N. C, Sole Agent for Vance County.

Dexter, X. C, Feb. 23, 1S91 It is my painful duty to record the particulars of a very sad occurrence which has cast a gloom over this com munity. On Saturday last about 4:30 o'clock in the afternoon, Mr. J. T King was killed by a falling tree He was at work cutting on Mr. Jas. II Hicks' dace, and in the excitement ran under the tree, then turning in the direction it was falling was caught be neath it and crushed in a horrible man ner. His head was split open, his neck broken, shoulders and chest mashed to pieces and both legs broken. In its mashed and bleeding condition the body presented a sad and ghastly sight. Mr. King was an industrious and kind hearted youg man, possessed of mauy of the noblest traits ol char acter. His father died when he was quite small leaving him as the main support of his widowed mother and younger listers, and nobly has he per formed the duties aud responsibilities thus resting upon him. Deceased was about 27 years of age. His death, so sad and unexpected, so tragic and hor rible iu its nature, removes one who will be greatly missed in the commu nity in which he lived. P.
