Greensboro is entertaining the edi tors this week. That the City of r lowers will treat the pencil men so handsomely as to make them want to go there again is evident from the program arranged lor their entertain ment and pleasure. Attention is called to a card announc ing the opening, on August 20th, of the Littleton High School and Business Institute. Prof. liagley, its principle, has met with high and deserved success as an instructor in the past, and the school has our best wishes for the future. Mrs. Virginia II. Watkins, of Rich mond, Va., -gives notice elsewhere of having qualified as executrix of the estate of the late Charles Watkins. All persons holding claims against the estate are notified to present the same before July 10th, 1896, and all indebted to said estate are asked to make imme diate payment. This from an exchange contains more truth than poetry: When a man has to curtail expenses the first thing lie iunnis on is the town newenaner the organ that devotes its lime and en ergies to the upbuilding of the town in which it is published. But when it comes to economizing they forget the free advertising it does for said town, and the local paper is- the first to feel the effects of ecouomy('r') An exchange gives the following recipe for making scaudal, which some folks kuow too well how to do already: Take one grain of falsehood, a handful runabout, of same quantity of limber tongue, six sprigs of backbite and a spoonful of " don't tell it." Add a few drops of envy and a little discontent and jealousy, strain it through a bag of misconstruction, cork it in a meddle some bottle, hang it on a skein of street yarn and shake it well before taking. Mr. ltichard Marstou has employed his versatile pen in a new direction, running into poetry. This may be a surprise to his friends, but we will vouch for its beius a meritorious bit of rhyme. It is a reply to some Hues entitled "Dear Husband, Come Home," published in the Gold Leaf June 27th, and is supposed to be the lan guage and sentiment of a member of the last North Carolina Legislature. We will publish it next week. Don't fail to read it you'll enjoy it, we are sure. Boys, don't be idlers. If you have no regular employment take up some study and read good, healthy books, but do not loaf about the streets in the company of idle, shiftless and vicious companions. There are more boys ruined by evil associates than through inherited criminality. Bad company tends to blunt the finer feelings, cor rupt the morals, and invariably brings the innocent to look upon wrong with itwlilVerence. When a boy gets to this stage he is at the critical point of his life. Exchange. Wherein We Take Our Leave. The editor packed his collar box and left town Tuesday. He chose the day time fcr his going and by so doing avoided any suspicions concerning his movements. His departure was not generally known, however, which accounts for thebsence of brass bands, military and prominent citizens at the train to see him off. Some men leave town for the town's good, but he goes for his own good pleasure. He has gone to Greensboro to meet his brethren of the State Press who hold their annual conclave among the cultured and hospitable people of the City of Flowers this week. From there he will go to Morehead and listen to what the wild waves are saying and incidentally acquaint himself with the fare of the Atlantic Hotel. Mucli as he may need rest and change, a dearth of "change" about him will make his stay necessarily short. It requires great sacrifice to tear himself away from the sacred precincts of Henderson, home, and minding the baby, but he will try to stand the painful ordeal as he hopes his friends will do until he returns. The paper is left in good hands and they are not the sheriff's. He does this because he has no desire to take it with him, one of his principal reasons for leaving being to get rid of it for a short while at least. lie sincerely hopes things will run smoothly during his absence and that Ma)ror Southerland will not be com pelled to call on the police to disperse any mobs. In that event Henderson's "hnest" might get their new uniforms messed up. Any donations of houses and lots, carriages and horses, or other evi dences of loving regard may be left at the office with the man in charge. He will also cheerfully receipt for all money paid as well as accommodate in dividuals who call to whip the editor. Unlike the Father of his Country who gave his people a farewell address, the father of the Gold Leaf only gives his an au revoir. University Catalogue. The University catalogue for 1894-95 shows 471 students, as follows: 317 in the College, 78 in the Law School, 26 in the Medical School and 59 in the Summer School for Teachers.

POYTHRESS. A Thought for the Day. The best things iu the world do uot come to us ready made. Truth must be searched for with patient toil. Beauty must be wrought out with painstaking devotion. Food and rai ment roust be wrested from the furrow and woven in the loom. And all our social and political institutions must be fought for on the field of battle, defen ded in the forum, and vindicated in the courts. Even our religious faith must be thought out anew in the soul-con flicts of each generation, or they become mere forms of words, devoid of life and power. William DeWitt Hyde. To Young Men. There are a ereat many vouug men iu this world nice young men who are coming ou to take the places of the older ones. They are coming ou rapidly, too. Young man, hear a word. Learn to walk before you try to prance. Don't hunger and thirst after a boudoir car while you are junior clerk and have to sweep out the store and run errands. If you are a young physician, don't expect to make it all in the first year. Your father, perhaps, rode four or five horses to death before he was able to put Brussels on the floor, and lean back in his easy chair ana announce that he would answer no calls aftar six p. m. If you are practicing law, remember that the old attorney whose office you are sweeping out, wore white hair, and not much of that, before he began taking whole farms for single fees in small cases. And bear in mind, too, that they didn't spend every cent of it as fast as they got it. Durham bun. Nice lot of very pretty Dress Goods just received by H. Thomason.

An honest and fearless newspaper some time pays pretty dearly for ex pressing its convictions. This in the way of loss of patronage subscriptions and advertisements. But no editor who is fit to occupy the position he does, is ever deterred from doing his duty as he sees it by a little thing like that. Satisfied that he is right the true editor takes no account of the probable losses or gains that will fol low his course. These thoughts are suggested by the following paragraph from the Wilmington Star. It says: When a rich merchant withdraws his advertising and subscription from a newspaper because irs convicuonn uu not permit it to agree with him as to its financial policy, he uses a strong argu ment, and one which, if universally adopted by the extreme gold standard advocates", would crush or cripple many newspapers owned by poor but honest men. it may oe uouoteu, uuwevei, Mr. and Mrs. D.

Shannon, the popular travel ling man who has perhaps sold more shoes than any one else on the road, is home for awhile. Thomas Gooch. the popular and whole-souled clothing salesman, W. II. Nelson, who is in the drug business at Kingville, Mo., has so much confidence in Chamberlain's Colic, Cholera and Diarrhcea Remedy that he warrants every bottle and offers to refund the money to any customer who is not satisfied after using it. Mr. Nelton takes no risk in doing this because the remedy is a certain cure for the diseases for which it is intended and he knows it. It is for sale bv Melville Dorsey, druggist. . .

The trentleniau who represents the Fifth North Carolina district in Cou- gress makes no blatant culinary preten tions. Bat when a party o! his colleagues were discussiDK the subject of cornbread he surprised them by going down into the House kitchen and cooking what was afterward said to be the most deli cate corn pone they had ever tasted. Mr. Settle recommends trie use oi tne freshest but coarest ground flinty corn meal; a stiff dough being made witn salt water and meal. These three ingre dients are all that are needed. The dough is shaped intocones, then wrapped in cabbage leaves and buried in the not ashes. The secret of the formula lies in the fact that the hard, flinty particles of the corn burst open something in the manner of popcorn in the process of cooking renders the bread delicious. I find in the JSew xoric sunuay Herald of April 21st, among the Hon orable Connoisseurs of cuisine, or, in other words, practical cooks among Congressmen, that Hon. Thos. Settle, of N. C, is alluded to as an expert on cornbread. While I am neither a congressman nor chef, I know corn bread, as I have in my boyhood days in the old North State handled corn from planting, through all of its rami fications, till it has been ground into meal, mixed and cooked. Now, I pre sume you have misquoted or misrepre sented Mr. Settle. As regards their preparation of the dough that is correct, but as to the baking your printed ac- What you had him This For the Young Folks.

We copy from an exchange: A lady took a basket of eggs to town and upon being asked how many she had said: "If I take the eggs out of the basket two at a time I have one egg left in the basket; if I take them out three at a time I have one egg leftin the basket; if I take them out four at a time I have one egg left in the basket; if I take them out five at a time I have one egg left in the basket; if I take them out six at a time I have one egg left in the basket; but if I take them out seven at a time I have none left in the basket. How many eggs are in the basket? DUKE (SigarizttieS A horse kicked H. S. Shafer, of the Freemyer House, Middleburg, N. Y-, on the knee, which laid him up in bed and caused the knee joint to become stiff. A friend reeom mended him to use Chamber lain's Pain Balm, which he did, and in two days was able to be around. Mr. Shafer has recommended it to many otners ana savs it is excellent for any kind of bruise or sprain. This same remedy is also famous for its cures of rheumatism.

The Auirust (Midsummer) number of Frank Laliet Popular Monthly easily takes the lead of the seasonable illustrated magazines. It appears in a handsome new cover, of appropriate artistic design, which will be permanently retained. The new cover is embellished with a portrait of the late Frank Leslie, founder of the magazine, and the father of illustrated periodical literature in America. An ed itorial article on " The Traditions and Profrress of Illustrative Art" says: "Not only does the portrait of Frank Leslie adorn our cover and page, but his enter prising artistic impulse, exemplified in the motto Progress and the Spirit of the Age, has animated the making of this, as it wilt of every future number of this justly acclaimed 'Monarch of the Magazines.' " This promise is splendidly fulfilled in the Midsummer number, which presents a really unprecedented display of over a hundred charming pictures, in cluding a full page plate in colors, with wood-engravings, pen-drawings and half tones by the best artists of this country and Europe. These pictures illustrate more than a score of articles, stories and . . . . li. poems, au ot a timeiy ana seasonal) iu nature, contributed by some of the fa mous writers of the day.

This conviction has taken such deep root that I am unable to refrain from expressing it publicly, and inviting the criticism or co-operation, or both, as they will, of my legal brethren by caning to their attention a few of the evils and abuses which such an organization as I have suggested might, at least in a measure, correct.

Seeing that the colt was not drowned or got his neck broke efforts were made to get him out." This was done after a time by means of fastening ropes and chains around his body and drawing him up by means of a windlass. He fell back, when about half way to the top. two or three times, the ropes slipping so as to cause him to lose his balance, but he appeared to be none the worse for this when he did finally ani, fl.A ion asraiu. Mr. Fleming says there was considerable water in the well and the colt kept from drowu cr Uv sinndinsr on his hind feet aud putting his front ones on the side of the well. And then the water reached to his neck he barely being able to keep his head out of it. Mr. Fleming tells us that wo or three small scars about the co.i's legs and one slight cut on the head are the only marks to tell of the unusual ex perience he went through. But he says it was the worst scared animal he ever saw. Mrs. J. II. Lassiter and Mrs. M. Parham returned home Monday from a visit to Rev. R.

I answer, a State Lar Association could do much towards accomplishing the desired end. A Code of Ethic? adopted and promulgated by the who'.-body of lawyers of the State, in convention assembled, would certuiuly carry with it great weight, and would operate to the great advantage of the profession generally, and of its younger members in particular. The subject of legal ethics is but one of the many urgent questions which would demand the attention and call for the prompt action of a Bar Association. There are many others. The dignity and usefulness of the pro fession should be maintained and pro moted. It should be purged of unworthy members and should punish and discount enance unprofessional and dishonest practices which have brought a great profession into much disrepute. Itshould guard the avenues to the profession and should oversee legislation, in order to prevent the demoralization of its princi ples and to save its teachings Irom the hand of the spoiler and the inevitable effect of ill-considered laws. It should labor to secure for the bench the best professional talent of the State by pro viding better compensation, or other wise, and should, in all things, combine the voice and influence of the bar for the advantage of the profession and the good of the Commonwealth. These things need no argument. Every lawyer must see and recognize the crying need of the hour and the benefits to be derived from a North Carolina State Bar Association. I take the liberty of asking an expres sion of opiniou by my legal brethren as to the necessity for, and the expedience of, the formation of nn organized body of the craft lor the purposes i have orieny outlined and any others which might demand its consideration.
