Here's a genuine North Oiolinn poem, written on Ijeorpia soil : He was born in North Carolina, Among the long-leaf pine : He chewed the ros-i-ar.a And drank the turpentine. " He talked about the Tar-Heel Matr, And the North Carolina reels : How he danced with all the girl-, so late. With tar upon his heels !" Atlanta Coontitutn. " The Democracy is Immortal." A LAST INTERVIEW WITH SENA TOR VANCE. What lie Said on his Deatlilx d of the Party he Loved so Well and Served so Lon Inquiries of his North Carolina Friends. Asheville Citizen. J During my visit to Washington la-t week I had the melancholy pleasure of a long personal conversation with Senator Vance. As I now feel that the utterances to me were perhaps the last that fell from his lips to any person outside his own immediate family, I think th-y should be recorded, ami handed down to prosterity as the words of North Carolina's greatest son, when his leet were actually laved by the waters of that dark river across which his noble spirit was wafted only a few hours later. It was late Wednesday afternoon, when I reached the Senator's residence on Massachusetts avenue. !t was dark, dull, rainy, c heerless day, and there was a hush in the street that im pressed me as 1 hurried along. The Senator was sleeping when 1 anived, but Mrs, Vance welcomed me to the sitting room. Her face showed the she had suffered, and the catastrophe she feared. She gave minute description of the Senator trio South, and the changes in his con dition during his stay. How the balmy sunshine ot Tampa had revived him, and how, fir a few days, he .--mel almost his old self again. How a sudden recurrence of the intense pains in his chest and stomach led her to think that something else was nee essary to relieve what they both that time thought to be intcicostal rheiim.it ism. How thev hastened to Suwanee Springs, in the hope that the hot sulphur baths would bring the relief so essential to the Senator comfort. ( )f the flood in the river at the time of their arrival, which over flowed the pools, making the takii the baths almost impossible. ( l im .i journey to Jacksonville, and down ' St. Augustine, with little imj r..e ment and less of hope. How, at 1 -t. the Senator's limbs gave way, so !h n he was unable to walk. Of the ..n clusion ol physicians that former .1.. g noses of his condition had n t correct; that it was enlargement liver which caused his suftenr not intercostal rheumatism. ' ionrnev to Washington and the ' pec n i :l,e : I : si L' r i e - ment of the physicians tin:- that enlargement of the liver .js ;:. trouble. During all this recital there was apparent a nervous anxiety which showed me, before words conveyed the impression that hope had almost gone from the heart of the Senator's devoted wile, and my own was heavy when I mounted the stairs to where the sick man lay. His voice was clear and full, how ever, when he greeted me. 1 le lay at full length in the bed, with his head and shoulders upon a bank of pillows. His hand grasped mine with a firm pressure, but as my eyes caught the expression of his countenance, the thought forced itself on my mind, " He will never leave this bed." The lire of strong intelligence was in his eye, the ring of conscious mastery of all his mental faculties was in his voice, but over it all came the instinctive conclusion that he was in the valley of the shadow of death. He enquired minutely concerning friends in Asheville, anil as to the effects of the recent eld weather upon the fruit in North Carolina, and expressed the hope that his "(lom broon" orchard had escaped by reason of its altitude, saying that the season was fully two weeks later up there than at any point immediately East of the ridge. The Senator then turned his face full upon me and asked, " How is the Democracy in North Carolina?" I replied that political matters were more or less unsettled with us, waiting tor the final action of Congress upon questions now being discussed. The Senator lay perfectly still for a few moments, ar.d I could see that his mind was at work preparing words for his thoughts. Presently, raising both hands, and his eyes to mine at the same moment, he said : The Democratic party is immortal. I have not recently arrived at this con clusion, but since I have been lying here on my back I have thought pro foundly of many things, and among them this idea of my earlier manhood has become a steadfast conviction. Frr thirty years of my life I fought, as a Whig, the Democratic party, and sometimes when it wa. overwhelmingly defeated 1 thought it could rise no more, but from its wrecks and disasters it would come more mightily than ever before and sweep away all opposition. The word Democrat stands for human liberty and human freedom and can not die. The people believe in it. and when freedom is menaced and liberty jeopardized, at one blast of that magic name men will come from the mountains and from the valleys and place the Democratic party in power. In the ancient days the little gladi ator, with his simple shield and short sword would tep into the arena before the assembled thousauds. The tierce aud raging lion would be turned in upon him. By his skill the mighty brute would be slain. Another mon ster would be turned in to meet the same fate. Another aud another would follow only to go down beneath the apparently puny strength of the gladiator, until the people would cry he is a god, the supernatural is with him." In some sort this represents the idea the American people have of Democracy. There i attached to the name a Kin". 01 upcrii:iiui.u jmj-ci. tnd when all else tails the people wnl turn to it as an lnvnicioie champion. m imfailinir friend. The Senator's hands dropped, r.:s yes were taken from mine, but when 'rljr.ped "ni-i hand at parting, and expressed the hope that lie would soon be better, the words he uttered rang in my ears and are ringing yet : DEMOCRACY lr l.M.MUia.i.: - THE WORD DEMOCRAT STANDS FOR II l. MAN J.llifciti AND -HUMAN I I'hKDU.M. JAN NOT DIE :' And though the voice that uttered hem is still in death, I have laith in he years to come they will urge, with omnipotent force, Nortn Carolinians and Americans to do their duty. John 1. Kkkk. l'( LLA RD-RR ECKI S III IM i E S I.' I T 1'uhlic Lessons of til'- Verdict. The whole country feels relieved that the Pollard-Ereckinridge trial is ,-er. The verdict of the jury, while it will not be unanimously approved no verdict would have been, fbr that matter was, we think, quite generally anticipated and will not give any considerable dissatisfaction. People may and will differ as to the degree of t'..? plaintiff's culpability and the exact extent to whicn she shared with the defendant the moral responsi bility for the shameful relations so long maintained between them. lut there will be no difference of opinion as to Colonel Breckinridge's behavior in the matter from first to last. He stands confessed, judged entirely out ot his own mouth and wholly apart from anything the plaintiff said against him, he has been one of the gravest offenders against society. In a broadly moral view of the case it seems to us that his own account of how his unlawful relations with the woman were first established, con tinued and finally broken is more j fatal to his reputation than her version of them. The jury evidently declined to believe, as he told them, that he never had stood in the relation of a lover to Miss Pollard, and never had a thought about her that roe above the level of passion. In rejecting his assertion to that effect the twelve good men and true have really done him a service. Their verdict says, in effect, that he is not so bad a man as he made himself out to be ; that there was once between him and this woman something more and better than lust. Because it will always be true that love, unlawful though it may be, has a redeeming quality. The divine words spoken to the Magdalene dis tinctly assert this: "Her sins which are many, arc forgiven, for she loved lined. Nathaniel Hawthorne's splendid tomance, "The Scarlet Letter," has In. en written in vain for those of its :, adcrs who have failed to learn from it the great moral truth that the daikest moral transgression is palliated if t lie impulse of a sincere, though for bidden, affection underlies it. When Hester Prynne and Arthur Dimmesdale met in the forest to speak to Roger Chillingworth the wretched minister -aid: "That old man's revenge has been blacker than my sin. He has violated, in cold blood, the sanctity of a human heart. Thou and 1, Hester, never did so!" To which the woman replied: "Never, never. What we did had a consecration of its own. We felt it so! We said so to each other! Hast thou forgotten it?" "No, I have not forgotten," said the minister. It is this fact that through all their sinning this guilty pair had really loved winch Hawthorne holds up to us as the redeeming line in an otherwise wholly shameful story. So we repeat, the vernict ot the Washington jury has given back to Colonel Breckin ridge something ot substantial value by declining to credit his statement that no tie stronger or finer than that of mere sensual pleasure ever existed between Madeline Pollard and him self. The verdict in this case, however, is not the really important point ot it It does net change its moral lessons nor effect the great social truths which it ought to enforce upon the commit nity. The severest punishment that could possibly fall upon both the principal parties to this suit had al ready fallen upon them before the ver diet was reached. . Poth their charac ters had been wrecked long before the case went to the jury. Much was said by the lawyers on either side as to the relative amount ot injury and suffering inflicted upon the plaintiff snd delendent. In one view of the matter it is certain that the woman is the heaviest loser. The verdict just rendered cannot restore her. Her so cial status is hopelessly lost, for how ever inherently unjust it may be, yet it is true that Colonel Rreckinridge may possibly regain a larger measure of respect and recover in a fuller degree his forfeited position than Madeline Pollard can ever hope to do. On the other hand, his reputation is in a widely different sense irreparably injured. He may recover much but not all of what he has lost by the trial of this case. His counsel reterred at length to the numerous historical parallels to his offense. Many of them, cited from past centuries, were of no value whatever in this age, when the standards of morality are unquestion ably higher than in any previous time. It is useless to cite Solomon, C.vsar or the first Napoleon to au American jury impaneled in the last decade of the nineteenth century. Perhaps, therefore, the chief and best public lession of this deplorable case is that the American statesman of these times, however brilliant his intellectual endowment and however great his gifts as a political leader may be, must respect himselt, the honor of his house, the sanctity of his family obligations, the good name of his Slate and country and the ordi nances by which the honor and purity of our social life are guarded, or he can not hope to keep his place in the front rank of the men of his time. This case has been flippantly treated by too many Northern newspapers, as if the one salient point in it was that Colonel Breckinridge was a Southern gentleman. No smaller view of a social calamity that is not only national but world-wide in its moral teaching, could be possibly taken. The North and the South have at least I a common interest in upholding the standards of rectitude and virtue among their public men. The Beecher scandal was not a Northern, nor is the Breckinridge scandal a Southern matter. All such disgraceful exposures of men of the widest national reputa tion, prestige and influence are national misfortunes. And it is of the first national importance that a common American sentiment should support the demand that must be everywhere made that American leaders shall be worthy of their position as such. This whole case is full of the saddest suggestions. Its trial has been a vast misfortune because ot the harm done by the inevitable publicity given to its unwholesome details. Meantime there is some satisfaction in knowing that, as a result of this demoralizing suit, it is clearly established that, before a Southern jury and at the bar cf Southern public opinion at least, no public man can plead in excuse of flagrant immorality that he has only done what many other great men of the past did or that he was too weak to withstand the arts of a tempting woman to whom he was old enough to be a father and hope to have his pleas accepted. It is only of late years that rheumatism has been treated as a blood disease. But that this is a correct theory is proved by the extraordinary success attending the use of Ayer's Sarsaparilla, in this paint ul and very prevalent malady. It seldom fails of radical cure. FINE POULTRY. Union Piont Poultry Yards, New Berne, N. C, Supplied With Fine Stock. From a recent i.s.suo of the New Rente Courier we take the following in reference to the I'nion Point Poultry Yards, of tliut city, an advertisement of which ap pears in this paper. The junior member of t he firm is our voinifr. friend Mr. Fred ;. Mitchell, late of Henderson. The mrier says : A Courier reporter yesterday visited the moil Point Poultry lards, Mlis A Mitchell, proprietors and saw what was in some particulars a finer displav of fine breeds than was even exhibited at I he recent fair. The arrangement of the yard was made after much care and thought had been expended and will serve as a model tor the most pretentious breeder. The place is admirable, each breed being separated from the rest. In yard number one is kept the P.lack Iauigshans, t he cock being so tall that he easily eats corn off the top of a, barrel the rooster, of course, standing on the ground. In number two is found a splen did lot ot Fart ridge I ochins. 15. A. fox, the well known breeder and poultry judg id Kicliinond, a., says this is the best pen of Partridge Cochins in North Caro lina and he's com pet en t to speak. Wliite Plymouth Uocks are Iiixnrating in num ber three. These three breeds are espe cially notable for their immense size and truly beautiful appearance. Number four contains a number of our native Partridge Cochins, though in size and quality they do not compare with num ber two and three. When biddies are epiite young and foolish they arc kept with their cackling mothers in number five. (Irass is abun dent here and the way the young ones scratch is indicative of their splendid health. The shipping department is (routined to yard number six. Pure White Wyan dot tes beautify yard number seven. This breed is an especially good layer and en joys a vigorous health. Number eight contains a coal-black breed called Indian (lames a medium size hen but very pro lific. II ack Minorcas are found in num ber nine. This chicken is without a doubt oik." of the prettiest, proudest fowls on earth. Number ten is full of P.lack Coch ins and number eleven contains the re liable Plymouth Itocks.thebestall-round chickens in existence. Light lirnhmas adorn number twelve. They are hand some and unusually large. P.arred Plymouth Uocks are in number thirteen. The I'nion Point Yard is equal in point of equipment, facilities for breeding and ship) ling in good order to any yard in North Carolina. In fact, in in any res pects, the yard is better appointed' than many whose owners are more pretentious. Their business grows larger each day and the owners contemplate putting in an addition at an early date to accommo date the demands made on the yard's resources. The exhibit they made at the fair was in no respect over-shadowed by a better one. In truth the display at the yard is a fair in itself. The iJest lor the Family.

Few people, especially it the South, have the same opinion of Senator David P.. Hill that they had a few months ago. His position on the tariff question has put him far back with the people generally. He made a Southern tour a few years ago fishiug around for the nomination to the Presidency, and we set him down then as a smaller man than he got credit for being.

Carelessness in little details will soon show in the conditions and pro ductiveness of the fowls. If the poultry are to be left coutiucd especial care must be given to cleanli ness. With chickens more especially, the question of breed must be determined by the iancy ot the person. In confinement a greater variety is needed than when given a good range, but good care must be taken not to over feed. Use all reasonable care to keep the poultry house dry, as a damp house is productive of the roup and many other diseases to which poultry are subject. A cross of Wyandotte and Plymouth Hock, or lirahma or Cochin hens makes a good combination for early broilers for market. Because others have failed in the poultry business is no reason you should, provided you are willing to give the fowls proper care and attention. When the fowls are confined, one of the best means of affording exercise is to put straw or coarse litter on the lloor and feed small grain upon it In nearly all cases in fattening geese for market the work can be done taster and better if they are given a cooked ration at least once a day, and twice a day will be still better. Scattering air-slaked lime over the floor of the poultry house will aid ma terially in keeping the air dry, pure and wholesome, while at the same time it will destroy all lice in which it comes m contact. While there is no question but that many who keep poultry fail to receive the profit they should, yet they keep right on iu the same way of manage ment year after year. The lien. I Helen E. Pailey, in Western Rural. J While others are engaged in mission work, temperance reform and woman suffrage, I will lift up my voice in be half of the neglected and much abused hens of my acquaintance, hoping that now as cold weather draws near, these faithful maid servants"' may be a little looked after. Now provide some sort of shelter for the poor things, set up some fodder and brace it with poles, if nothing better is to be had and not expect them to roost about the trees, and then complain that they are "poor as Job's turkey" when you waut to dress one for the table. And if they happen to pick up a half dozen grains with the hogs don't go into an epileptic fit about it, shoving and driving them off, with ill matured remarks to the woman folks, why they have eaten their heads off three times over and not an egg do they lay to show for it either, so they don't. Why, my dear growler, your hens are entitled to a proportion of care aud will repay you as well as will any other of your farm stock if you will but try it. Most people in the world have to work, and if you go at it right you may find that "fussing with a few chickens" to be just what you are cut out for who knows. You feed your hens twice ,a day, giv ing plenty of milk or warm slops for drink and comfortable place to sleep, and they will not be the ragged, peaked looking, bluish beaked things they are parilla Is superior to all other preparations claiming to be blood-purifiers.

The writer was "lad to notice in the American Fanner ancZ Farm News for the account of the Sebright bantam lien. We have one that has been a member of our family for four years, and she is the most intelligent bird we ever owued. Like all bantams she takes naturally to petting and comes into the house to lay if given a chance She hatches a brood each year after laying a large number of eggs. Hav ing no mate for her last year we put live Leghorn eggs under her and she hatched all of them, clucking to them long after they were larger than she was, and going to roost with them regularly after they began to go into the poultry house with the older fowls This year she has niue little Sebrights and has taken care of them so wel that she has not lost a single one. Bantams should not be hatched until late in the season, if they are iutended for showing, as they will not grow above standard weights if hatched late and nesrlected. We never think of feedinr our bantams as our object is to keep them as small as possible mere are those wno tiunK there is no money iu these little fowls, but the one who has good Sebright, IJlack Breasted Red or Pekiu bantams is certain to pet a good price for them, aud for the amount of feed they consume they lay as many eggs as any other breed The Sebright hen we have been ottered six dollars tor, aud live dollars many times, but she is worth more than that to show, for we have won as high as twelve dollars in premiums on ner in one winter. For those who have but a limited space and want eggs for their own use, a flock of bantams will do better than almost any other breed, as they can be kept closely confined and lay as well as if they had a farm to run over. FEEDING FOR EGGS. The namber of eggs a flock lays de pends more on the feed that is given them than on the breed. This matter has been the subject of endless dispute among poultrymen for years, and with in a few years a number of poultrymen who wanted to get at the truth of the matter have been experimenting along this line until now the facts are pretty well established. Last Spring we began trying the effect of feeding for eggs on a trio of Light Brahmas, and the result has been very encouringing. Though this variety like all others in the Asiatic class are naturally persist ent siters, we have fed the hens in this trio so carefully, and to such good purpose, that they have not yet 20,) goue to sitting but have laid through the season as well as our horns, and the prospect is that a (July right Leg- they will continue to lay, for their combs are as red now as when they first be gan to lay. It has been established as a truth that when a hen is fed until she becomes over fat she will become broody, and we have Leghorn hens that have set and hatched broods this seasou, aud one that is within three days of hatching the second brood in succession, having been reset when she hatched the first clutch. We know that our hens are pure blooded for we have bred them for more than twelve years, using only the best new blood when necessary, and at every show that they have ever been exhibited at they have wou their share of the prizes and stock from our yards has been awarded prizes in several States. With careful feeding every day in year it is possible to have eggs every day, and hens that are well kept will supply eggs almost as well in the dead of winter, as at any other season, and the breeder who has eggs to sell when the other fellow's hens are resting is the one who knows of a certainty that poultry pays better than any other kind of stock.
