Here is one of the latest announcements: Prof. E. 1). Cope of the University of Pennsylvania is writing a book which is calculated to create a sensation, not only in the world of science but among people who arc content to believe that C d created man in His own image. The book will be called " Primary l:-tois in Involution," and Professor (.' claims that it will, for the first rinu-, contain a genealogical history : m ui brought up to the litest date. He goes far beyond the theory of I 'r.vln, that man descended from the n m'uv, and actually traces the deve! . tn-nt of the human race back to fi-he . Tiik editors who visited Morehead were the guests of our townsman, Col J. S. Carr, and while there he made their stay a most pleasant one by his courteous attentions. Of course they dipped themselves in the surf, and the up-country fellows who kept the top of their columns open for other matter, got a surfeit of saltwater; they caught many fish, and this leads ns to say that editors are continually drop ping lines and ought to be good fish ermen. Morehead is a splendid sum mer resort and the press had a delight ful time there as those present will testify. Durham Sttn. 1 1 w 11.1. r.K interesting to his many friends in North Carolina to learn that (Jen. James H. I .ane, a Virginian, who so faithfully and gallantly commanded an excellent North Carolina brigade, has been made statistical agent for the States of Alabama, Mississippi and Louisiana, for the Agricultural Depart ment, the three States having been grouped as one division and numbered seven. The C.eneral has been for several years the statistical agent of Alabama. Of this selection the Mont gomery Ad: ft User says that the "ap pointment is a just recognition of his splendid services in that position. Gen eral I. ane is eminently fitted for the position, and his promotion is well de served." Wilmington Messenger. Tut North Carolina Press Associa tion discussed two very important questions pertaining to the present laws in our State. One was a reform in the present jury system relative to criminal cases. A resolution was adopted with this end in view. The idea is to give the State an equal chance in a murder case with the de fendant something like the same number of challenges in the selection of a juryman as is now givsn the de fendant. This will open up an inter esting and important discussion upon our jury system and no doubt bring about some improvements along this line. The other question was upon our present libel law, which is a sweep ing measure, and needs remodeling so that justice may be given both sides. These are very important questions, and concern the whole people. Durham Sun. Commencing with the August number. Home and Country. New York, enters upon the 11th year of its publication. Its immurement marks this period in its existence by announcing a reduction in price to IO cents a copy, and 1.0 a year by subscription. The wonder is, how can they do it? As n popular monthly magazine, one for the homes of common every-d.-iy people, Home and Country lias no superior and few equals. In illustrations it is a revelation. The change in price decided upon will 110 doubt meet popular approval and an in creased clientele, which is deserved. GREAT BATTLES are contin ually going ou in the human sys tem.

The editor has always been very partial to Greensboro fircens i.oro people. Not a great many years a'o w hen he was young and sentimen tal there were special attractions there for him. There were more pretty girls there perhaps than any town of its size in the State. And while manyoftheru are now married others have taken their places and altogether the average is kept up. So (Jreenfehoro has lost nothing of its charms on this score, and has gained in various other re spects. One mu.-t needs go there and frtay awhile and mingle with its people, visit its educational institutions, inspect its industrial enterprises, study its lo cation and realize its importance as a railroad and commercial centre to fully appreciate its superior advantages. Thin we did last week and the result is we are more in love with Greensboro and deeper impressed with the culture and hospitality of its citizens, the pro gressive character and public spirit of its business men than ever before. The editors were entertained in a manner most agreeable. Nothing was left undone to contribute to their com fort, pleasure and edification. The committees were untiring in their cllorts to give the newspaper men a 'good time,' as were the citizens and business men generally. Kvery cour tesy ond attention possible was ac corded them and when we were not holding our sessions we were in the hands of our friends being shown around town, taking carriage drives, going on an excursion to Guilford 15at tle ("rounds, enjoying a musical con cert given for our especial benefit, being dined at a banquet or something of the kind. The editors were enter tained at the two leading hotels the Penbow aud McAdoo. It was our pleasure to stop at the former, and we can emphasize what we have had oc casion to remark heretofore that there is not a better equipped or more excel lently kept hotel in the State. It is lirst-elass in all its appointments and the table fare all that could be desired. The owner, Capt. 15. J. Fisher, is a liberal-hearted, generous-pursed gen tleman of ample means and his ambi tion is to have the best of whatever he undertakes. The manager, Mr. XV. S. Jessups, is a thorough business man and experienced hotelist and knows how to cater to the traveling public. The Convention was the largest in the history of the Association. There were 27 new members the attendance altogether numbering about 75. It was a representative body of earnest, aggressive men bona tide editors aud publishers who love their profession and f-eck to elevate the standard of journalism, enlarge the field of useful ness and increase its rewards for their labor. President W. C. Krvin, of the Morgan ton Herald, presided, and Sec retary J. 15. Sherrill, of the Concord Times, was in his place as usual. The sessions were characterized by a spirit of business a dcterminniion to ac complish something for the hettermeut of the profession and fraternity. The papers read were thoughtfully prepared and ably considered, the discussions animated, the same interspersed with good humor and sallies of wit, and upon the whole the deliberations were edifying and instructive. We cau not undertake here to speak in detail of the work of the convention. Perhaps where there was so much "shop talk" this would not interest the general reader. Wednesday night the Broekmann School of Music gave a grand concert complimentary to the Press Associa tion. This is an institution of which Greensboro has just cause to feel proud. Kach number was well ren dered, but the singing of .Miss Mabel Hill deserves especial mention, as does the cornet playing of Master Claude Klam. The young lady has a rich voice, strong and llexible, assweet as the soft cadences of a murmuring streamlet. With a charming presence, simple and unaffected in manner she captivated the hearts no less than she pleased the ears of her auditors. Mas ter Klam is almost a prodigy with the cornet. lie has a perfect mastery of the instrument and evokes the most pleasing melodies and performs the most ditheult feats with apparent ease. Prof. I'rockmann is a fine performer on the violin and showed himself to be a skilled instructor and gifted orches tral organizer and leader. Miss Brock mann evinced high powers as piano aeeompauist and pleased every one by her superb work. It being customary to have the oration and poem on the evening of the first day's session, after the first two numbers of the programme had been rendered Hon. John 11. XVcb p r, of the lleidsville Weekly, Associa tion orator, was introduced. lie de li v ered a line address taking for his subject '-The Old North State." He s,oke of North Carolina's part in the war of the Revolution and in the late civil conflict, of her place in history, 1 cr great men, her present aud future, a-id fruitful as was the subject he treated it well. Mr. Webster's speech was enthusiastically applauded and when he had finished he was warmly congratulated by many of his friends. Thursday night the editors weie given a banquet at the lienbow House. It was an elegant and enjoyable affair in every way. The bill of fare was elaborate and temptingly served in the highest style of the cooking art. One notable feature of the banquet and one that received favorable comment from many present was the absence of wines. It has before been demon strated that a successful banquet may be had without champagne, and this one was not an exception. The toasts were well selected, the speeches all being of a high order of excellence above the average on such occasions. Mai. E. J. HaVe of the Payctteville Obtrrer. was toast-master, duties of which office he performed most admirably. We will not attempt to speak of them singly, but give the subjects and the speakers.

We have already alluded to the car riage drive visiting the State Normal and Industrial School for white girls, Greensboro Female College, the Agri cultural and Mechanical College for colored boys, the finishing mills of the Cone Export Company, and other places of interest in and about the city. It was our pleasure to be assigned to a carriage with Mayor Nelson, an ac complished and agreeable gentleman, to whom we were indebted for much of information concerning places and objects of interest pointed out along the route. In this way the editors were given an insight into the growth and progress of the city taught a prac tical object lesson as it were that they could have got in no other way. There were gratifying evidences of a steady upward tendency, indicative of pros perity, on every hand, nandsomenew residences were going up, mills and factories were in operation and others in course of construction, commodious store houses were being erected aud trade and enterprise were forging right ahead. Thursday afternoon the editors went on an excursion to Guilford Battle Ground. For this purpose the C. F. & Y. V. railroad had kindly placed two coaches at the service of the com mittee. These were hitched on to the regular train, left at the grounds and an engine was sent out after us just before night. The vieit to this historic spot was enjoyed by every one, and many were surprised to learn that so much had been done toward beauti fying the grounds and marking them with monuments, statues, &c. Judge Schenck was there to welcome the editors and his reception was aa cor dial as the pleasure of meeting him was sincere on the part of the news paper men. The following officers were elected for the ensuing year: President, C. L. Stephens, Southport Leader. Vice Presidents 1st, W. F. Mar shal, Gastonia Gazette; 2nd, W. W.

Friday morning the editors bade farewell to Greensboro and friends and took their departure. Many of them returned to their homes, a few went to the mountains and springs for rest aud recreation while between 35 and 40 went on au excursion to Morehead. This had been previously decided upon and anticipated with pleasure, but when a telegram was read before the convention from Dr. Blacknall invit ing the Association to visit the sea shore as his guests for a couple of days, it put quite a different aspect upon the whole question. They felt assured that with so gracious and clever a host as Dr. Blacknall, ably seconded by that prince of entertainers and most agreeable of gentlemen, Col. Julian S. Carr, their stay could be uothiug short of one round of pleasure. And so it was. From Friday evening till Monday morning the editors en joyed themselves as only one can at Morehead City. They sailed and fished and bathed, inhaled the salt sea air, danced and promenaded with pretty young women, feasted on the excel lent bill of fare served at the Atlantic Hotel, and in various ways spent the time most pleasantly. But our space is exhausted and we must stop. Our State University. Editor Gold Leaf : It is very pleasing to an admirer of our leading educational institution, situated at Chapel Hill, to note the progress and enterprise she is exhibiting. AH indications now point to an enrollment of GOO students. The University comprises the Academic, Law and Medical schools, and the Summer School, now in session, primarily for teachers. The Summer School has a corps of efficient teachers in manv branches aud loud are the students iii voicing its praise. It is an aggressive move, hearty appreciation of which is evinced by its deservedly large patronage. The faculty of the University numbers thirty-five professors and instructors and assistants in laboratories. Thev represent the leading universities of America, Germany, England, Franceand Greece. No college in the South cau boast of a superior teaching force. The best sanitary conditions exist at Chapel Hill, good sewerage and drainage and the water works afford both hot and cold baths. The Infirmary, recently built, is a com modious structure, well appointed, and insures good medical attention to students. It is the twelfth building to be erected. An electric light plant is now in course of construction, which will supply all the dormitories and lecture rooms with lights. Theplant will cost over $7,000. Athletics are a feature of college life and while undue prominence is not given them at Chapel Hill, yet the students find ample time to indulge in all inanlv sports and games. The foot ball and base ball teams will try hard to wrest the Southern championship from Vir ginia, and prospects are that Carolina's hopes will be realized. The Y. M. C. A. will erect a building to cost $20,000, much of it having been already subscribed. An effort is also on foot to raise $50,000 for "Alumni Hall," and the friends of the Universitv will be glad to learn that nearlv ha'lf of this amount has been raised. It will contain ail the lecture rooms in one building, and the lecture rooms heretofore used will be converted into additional dormitories. The University is on a boom. The moral tone of the Universitv is exeeptionably good. The spirit of the studeut bodv is manlv and self-reliant. Students who intend pursuing a colle giate course can not find better instruc tion than at the Universitv of North Carolina. Student. Williamsboro, A'ance county, N. C. Mr. A. B. Hepburn, President of the lhird .National Bank of New York, has written for the August numlter of The Forum an article fully explaining the operations of the Bond Syndicate, point ing out the excellent results which have followed its work. Bright Tobacco. How to Cure and Manage the Crop. I'RIMINO AND TOPPINO. As soon as the plantsarelargeenough, a few of the bottom leaves are broken off, usually from three to six inches above the surface of the hill, and the bud is broken out, leaving from ten to four teen leaves on the stalk. The former proeesN is called "priming,'' the latter "topping." Too high priming us well as topping delay the growth of theplant, and as early maturity is all-important to successful curing, the general practice is to prime low aud top at not exceeding ten leuves, unless the plants promise to be very large, in which case more leaves are left to prevent too coarse a growth. If the season is wet and the plant luxu riant and vigorous, higher topping will be required, and if dry, lower. It is the practice of some planters to top high, early in the season, and if afterwards it be found that too many leaves have been leU it is easy to remove them. Upon the good judgment of the topper depends the crop, and none but skilled hands should undertake this work. It requires experience to be able to tell from the appearance of the plant how many leaves should be left, and nothing save practice can give this. Generally there is but little topping done till the cultivation is finished. It is then continued from week to week until ail the plants are topped. As the season advances the number of leaves left must be less and less in order to bring the plants to maturity. Thetoppingshould be finished by or before the 10th of August. If any, but few plants should be allowed to remain untopped after this date. Successful management at this stage of the crop depends greatly upon the good judgment of the planter, who must be governed by the appearance and the early or late seasons; the great desidera tum being to bring iu as much weight of plant as can be matured in time for curing. WOItMlNO AND Sl CKKItlXG. The worms are not usually plentiful or troublesome till the topping begins. Sometimes, however, they make their appearance soon after thecrop is planted. Worming is slight work and can be done by girls or boys, who will be apt to keep them off if prizes are given for thelargest number caught, or some plan adopted to create rivalry among the catchers. The crop should be gone over at least once if not twice a week. As long as it remains in the field the worms will con tinue to cut and eat the leaves, and nothing but the most untiring watchful ness and labor will keep them down. Very soon after the topping is com menced the plants will begin to put out suckers. These should not be allowed to grow more than three or four inches before they are pulled off. Both worm ing and suekering can go on at the same time, and it is necessary to go over as often for one as the other. "Eternal vigilance" is not in this case the "price of liberty," but absolutely necessary to secure a good crop with whole leaves. The suckers make the leaves light and the worms make them ragged. (X'TTI.NO. Let youi tobacco stand on the hill until thoroughly ripe, bearing in mind not to cut any until a barn can be filled with plants of uniform ripeness, color and quality. Put seven medium sized plants on si stick four and a half feet long. Let the plants go from the cut ter's hands over the stick in the hands of the holder. After being filled the stick should not touch the ground for any length of time; in fact 'tis better for them to go directly from the holder to the wagon and from the wagon to the barn, where they should be tiered about eight inches apart that is if the tobacco is of medium size. 1IAR.NS. We think those that are seventeen and a half feet square are the best for curing successfully; a barn of this size with four firing tiers below the joists, will hold about four hundred and fifty sticks. TEMl'EHATURK. After filling the barn with ripe tobacco, start the heat at about ninety or a hundred degrees Fahrenheit and keep it there for thirty or thirty-six hours, which length of time is commonly required to yellow tobacco, some taking a little longer or shorter time. Right here is where a man must exercise his judgment, as neither the best theory nor the most minute directions will serve it is practice that makes a good curer. After finding the best leaves in the barn of a uniform yellow and the other of a pea-green, one can, as a general rule, begin to raise the heat from the yellowing heat at the rate of five degrees every two hours. When one hundred and fifteen degrees is reached, it is time to give the tobacco air by cracking open the door and making holes as large as a man's hand on each side of the barn near the bottom logs; which treat ment will be found to be of great advan tage, as the tobacco will commence drying off and the tails will begin to turn up. Continue to increase the heat at the above rate until one hundred and thirty-five is reached, where the heat must be kept for twelve hours, which is the length of time required to cure the leaf. Raise the heat now five degrees every hour and a half until it gets to one hundred and eighty degrees. This heat will in a short while cure both stem and stalk. As a general rule, by follow ing these directions, tobacco will come out of the barn a pretty uniform yellow. To cure it a bright, clear yellow, it must have all the heat it can bear until it reaches one hundred and thirty-five de grees. OHDEItlMi AND IIANDMNO. After tobacco is thoroughly cured, let it come in order enough to handle welh then move from curing barn to packing barn, or some tight house, and bulk down so that it will retain its color, as exposure reddens it. STIUIM'INO. When ready for stripping take as much bulked tobacco as one wants, and hang at some damp time in a curing barn, so as to bring it in order to handle. In stripping select leaves of uniform sizeand color, making about six or seven differ ent grades, and tie in bundles of six leaves. After tying the bundles should be hung on a stick, putting about twenty-five bundles on a stick, and the sticks put dowu in a bulk perfect lv straight. This will press the tobacco out fiat and cause it to make a bettv appearance on the market. It should remain in bulk for several days. And in many markets they bring it from home on the sticks and pull them out as thev lay it on the scales at the warehouse, keeping it always flat.

The Bell Telephone Company lias a force of men preparing their exhibit. This company will occupy over 1,000 square feet and their display will be very fine. It will comprise a complete central station, operating telephones in all parts of the grounds, connected with the main system in Atlanta, and with the long distance system through out the state. Their space will be fit ted up in a very handsome mauner and at heavy expense, aud everything will be shown that illustrates the growth and progress of the telephoue business. The Exposition is to be congratulated upou the manner in which the Bell Telephone Company has taken hold of this matter. The General Electric Company have engaged experts to design their display, and it will be most elaborate. Their 8 pace also will occupy considerably over 1.000 square feet and they may passibly require more. The design of their exhibit will be original and unique, and will create a decided sensation. They are going into the matter with an accustomed zeal and liberality. The Wesliughouse Electric and Manufacturing Company have also secured one of the large central spaces and will fill it with a varied aud inter esting exhibit, and there will be the usual rivalry between these two great companies as to which shall have the most interesting and instructive display. The Brush Electric Company and Fort Wayne Electric Corporation were also amoug the first to take a large amount of space, and they will not be behind any other company iu the size and beauty of their exhibits. From LaQrippe. How Dr. Miles' Nervine Restored One of Kentucky's Business Men to Health. No-DISEASE has ever presented so many peculiarities as LaGrlppe. No disease leaves its victims so debilitated, useless, sleepless, nerveless, as LaGrippe. Mr. D. W. Hilton, state agent of the Mut ual Life Insurance Co., of Kentucky, says: "In 1S89 and '90 I had two severe attacks of LaGrippe, the last one attacking my ner vous system with such severity that my life was despaired of. I had not slept for more than two months except by the use of nar cotics that stupefied me, but gave me no rest. I was only conscious of intense mental weakness, agonizing bodily pain and the fact that I was hourly growing weaker. When in this condition, I commenced using Dr. Miles' Restorative Nervine. In two days I began to improve and In one month's time I was cured, much to the surprise of all who knew of my condition. I have been in ex cellent health since and have recommended your remedies to many of my friends." Louisville, Jan. 22, 18Q5. D. W. Hilton.
