Although not well enough he preached in the morning the Sunday previous, but suffered in consequence of coming out so soon. His pleasing presence and kindly greet ings on the streets and in the homes of our people are all the more agreeable since their enforced absence. One of the finest - wild turkeys we have seen in a longtime was displayed in front of Capt. Jones' printing office Tuesday afternoon. It was a 23 pound gobbler, seut him with the com pliments of his friend Mr. Peter Stal lings, of Macon, Warreu county, by whom it was killed. The bird was a remarkably fat and handsome one, with beard about six inches long and at tracted much attention. It need not be added that Capt. Jones was justly proud of his possession.

The last Legislature passed an act the provisions of which may not be generally known, and as it is a matter of public interest we call attention to it now. It was a law requiring a three nch board on top of all barbed wire fences along a roadway, as a protection to Block. The law went into effect Jan uary 1st. it win oe a joo to put tnem on iu many places, but the law requires t to be done, and where this has not been attended to already we suggest that further negligence or delay may involve extra ttoubleand expense. Watkins is offering great bargfiitiM in men's boys' ami children'selothing. Good goods, that fit and wear well. 4 A Great Treat. The Schubert Svm phony Club and Lady Quartette have made arrange ments to give a concert at Burwell Hall Thursday evening, February 13th, when our people will be given one of the musical entertainments which have made the company so famous. We are fortunate m being among the favored few who secure this attraction, and should show our appreciation of high class concerts by giving them a crowded house. We have not space to write of the artists severally as they deserve, but all of them are highly- praised by the press. Seats on sale at Thomas' drug store. Do vou want shoes? H.

Wortham, who lives near Ilen- lerson, surprised his friends last week by going over into Warren and taking to himself a wife. The Warren ton Record gives the following particu lars: Yesterday afternoon at Mr. E. P. Al a's residence in town, at 4 o'clock, Mr. Bela Wortham, of Vance county, and Miss Puttie Wiggins, n highly respected and accomplished daughter of our es teemed countyman, Mr. Win. Wiggins, were united in marriage. Rev. P. L. lb rman officiating. The marriage was an exceedingly quiet and unexpected one, no one, save two or three friends, knowing anything about it. Our best wishes follow them. Cloaks $1.00, $2.00 and $.1.00 at WATKINS'. Allison & Addison's Special Tobacco Manure for plant beds, at J. H. LASSITKH & CO S. The Baptist Missionary Rally. The program of the Missionary Rally at the Baptist church, which began Sunday morning, was well carried out. The exercises were of an interesting nature, the address edifying and the topics instructive. The Bibical Re corder, whose editor was present and delivered an address on "The Silent Iluuered Thousand" Sunday night, says. The Henderson missionary rally start ed off well Sunday. The excellent, pre pared program was carried out with the exception of the address by Associate Secretary Mullins, who had to postpone his coming until Tuesday. Secretary White preached tin inspiring sermon Sunday morning, and delivered an able address at night. Bro. T. M. Pittman also made a well-eonceived speech at night on the ".Moral Basis of Missions." We enjoyed the meeting very much and were delightfully entertained by Rro. Lassiter. It is good to see people so fond and proud of their pastor tm the Henderson people are of Bro. Millard. The meeting was continued through Monday and Tuesday, Elders Taylor of Warretitoti and Hardaway of Oxford taking part. Blessings are not always sugar-coated. No, neither are pills but Dr. Tierce's Pleasant Pellets are, aud they are genuine blessings in (sugar-coated) disguise to the sufferer from billiousness, constipation, indigestion and all derangements of the stomach, liver and bowels. Buy them and try them, Y o'u can't make a mistake. They're powerful, yet painless. And pleasant to take. 'A very appreciative audience greeted the appearance of the Schulbert Club aud Lady Quartette at Porter's Opera House Friday night. The mu sic was very fine. Every member was an artist, and the renditions of the music could not have been better." Bowling Grec i, Ky., Sunday Bee. At Burwell Hall next Thursday eveniug. - .

Mr. Theo Stallings, well known to the trading people of Henderson, has accepted a position with Davis & Rose. A good man and a good house, the two will go well together. It is hardly necessary to say more than this. Mr. Stallings is too well known to need either introduction or words of com mendation. He had been with W. W. Rowland seven years, first with Row land & Powell and continuing with Mr. Rowland when he succeeded to the bus iness, only leaving when the latter closed out and retired from merchan dising. There is no more popular mau in the trade than "Uncle Oflie," and uo more polite, accommodating, capable salesman anywhere. He has had large experience behind the counter, knows how to please his customers and counts nothing a trouble when he can serve them. Honest and straightfor ward in his dealings he has the confi dence and respect of the people in an emineut degree. In his new position Mr. Stallings will be able to serve the public to best advantage and invites his friends to call and see him. Guano For Plant Beds. One car load Star EJrand Special, just received. People who have used this guano say it is the quickest they know. J. II. LASSITER & CO. Railroad Accident. A disastrous wreck occurred at Man ly on the Raleigh & Augusta division of the Seaboard Air Line last Thursday night. The accident was due to an open switch causing a through freight to run into a local on the siding. Two men were killed outright and engineer Thad Pleasants was badly scalded, but will recover. Twenty mules were also killed and the damage in wrecked cus was great. One of the men killed was Walter Flanuigan, colored, who belonged iu Henderson.. The body was brought here and buried Saturday. He was fireman on Mr. Pleasants' en gine. The other man who lost his life was a colored brakemm. Mr. Pleas ants lived in Henderson a few years ago, when he was engineer on the shifting engine, and is known to many of our people. The train run into was iu charge of Mr. Joe Dunn, of Henderson, as con ductor. The accident was a deplorable affair and was much regretted here on account of Mr. Dunn's connection with it. He had been a Tiard working, faith ful employe and was striving for pro motion, and when the outlook seemed encouraging to him all is lost in a moment. Pending an investigation be was suspended. ' - The responsibility of the accident has not yet been fixed, that is who left the switch open. , The remaining stock of Blankets, La dies' Underwear, Muffs, Furs, and Knit Goods will be sold verv cheap at WATKINS'. Schubert Symphony Club. The Wilmington Messenger says this of the Schubert Symphony Club, which will appear at Burwell Hall next Thurs day evening: The largest and most appreciative audience of the season greeted the Schu bert Symphony Club at their entertain ment in the Y. M. C. A. auditorium last night. The varied and splendid programme was carried ont in a most excellent man ner and every number was encored, the members of the company responding ac commodatingly to all the flattering de mands of their appreciative audience. The singing of Miss Grace Dyer, a so prano with a marvelous voice and culti vated vocal talents, delighted every body and was given the special favor of the audience. Mme. Lovie Zendt Purcell, a contralto singer of splendid accomplishments, was one of the favorites during the evening. Master Tommy Purcell, a little boy artist, rendered a song and violin solo and also a song story, w hich were well received. The singing of the lady quartette was superb, and altogether the concert was one of the finest and most enjoyable ever given in Wilmington. Wilmington, N. C. ftle$enger.

I. II . Bui doe ns, Supt. Death of Mr. A. W. Rowland. A telegram was received here Sun day, conveying intelligence of the death of Mr. Alex W. Royvland, which occurred iu Chicago on Saturday. He had gone there in company with his brother Mr. Parry Rowland to have a surgical operation performed, but this had not been doue. Mr. Rowlaud was a native of Hen derson, being a son of the late H. II. Rowlaud. Until his health gave way a few years ago he had beeu for a long while successfully engaged in the drug business in Wilson. Disposing of his interests there he came to Henderson and again made his home here living with his brother Mr. I. C. Rowland. Later he moved to Tyler, Texas, where his other brothers were living, aud it was from there he went to Chicago for the purpose above ineutioned. Mr. Rowland was a man of genial temperament, polished manners aud splendid address, and was popular and esteemed wherever known. He was a brave soldier, a true friend and up right Christian gentleman. His death will carry sorrow to the hearts of many persons in Henderson and elsewhere. Mr. Rowland had been married but lost his wife ten or twelve years ago. They had no children. He was 55 years of age. - The body was brought to Henderson for burial reaching here Mouday after noon. The fuueral was held from the Episcopal church, of which d -nomination deceased was a member, at 4 o'clock, the rector Rev. Julian E. Ingle conducting the service. The in terment was made in the family square in Elmwood cemetery. Threw Away His Canes. Mr. D. Wiley, ex-postmaster, Black Creek, N. Y., was so badly afflicted with rheumatism that he was only able to hobble around witli canes, and even then it caused him great pain. After using Chamberlain's Pain Balm he was so much improved that he threw awav his canes. He says this lin iment did him more good than all other medicines and treatment put together.

A special train of 8 coaches passed through Henderson yesterday afternoon conveying a party of United States ma rines from Xew York to San Francisco. It was the crew of the battle-ship Texas going to man the new coast de fence vessel Monadnockt which has just gone into commission. There were 187 men in the draft, Lieut. Roper be ing in charge, with Lieut. Miller, En sign Douglas ancTSurgeon Steele. The coaches were decked with miniature flags on top, the sides aud ends being draped with bunting while a large flag floated to the breezes from a staff at tached to the rear coach. There were 5 sleeping coaches of the Southern Pacific Railroad (which had beeu brought east for the purpose) a Pullman and two baggage cars. The sleeping cars, although not of the reg ulatoin palace car order, are similar to the regular Pullman, with mattresses, blankets, bed linen, and contain all the accessories, such a3 lavoratories, stoves, ice water and everything the men may need to be comfortable. A Pullman porter was iu attendance on each car, to attend to the wants of the passengers. This mode of transferring men to the Pacific is au experiment with the government.. Heretofore the plan adopted was to seud them by water to Aspinwall, Panama, across the Isth mus, and again by water to SarrF-ratr Cisco. The expense of land travel it seems has been the only thing that has kept the Department from making the experiment before. And in this case it was only through the intelligent arid persistent offices of Capt. T. J. Au derson, General Passenger Agent of the Seaboard Air Line, that it was done. The outcome of the innovation will be watched with interest. The men will go through without change of cars, the route takeu being via. Raleigh, Atlanta, Montgomery, Mobile, New Orleans, Houston, San Antonio, El PasoYuma, Los Anegles, Valejo, Fresno, and to San Francisco. Our people are growing more and more in the habit of looking to M. Dorsey,Druggist, for the latest and best of everything in the drug line. They sell Chamberlain's Cough Remedy, famous for its cures of bad colds, croup and whooping cough . When in need of such a medicine give this remedy a trial and you will be more than pleased with the result. Kind Remembrances. There are many pleasant features in the life of a Methodist preacher. The love of our people, so often exhibited in kind words and practical deeds, ia a source of much joy. Not long since, our people brought many gifts of lov into our home. In the early part of last year, I was made the happy recipient of a handsome suit of clothes and other useful articles. Such acts of kindness are always ap preciated, and inspire an Embassador of Christ to do the best work possible for such a noble people. With implicit faith in God, and with love for souls for whom the Lord Jesus died, I enter upon this, my second year. May the Lord abundantly bless this people, and may He make me not a mere "hand-shaker," but a faithful Shepherd. Affectionately, M. D. Hix. To the Ladies. Still a few Cloaks and Capes remaining.

Many of our newspapers are perma nent business enterprises and the edi tors are making a precarious and haz ardous living out of them. We all find it hard to get out ot the old ruts and harder stiil to educate the people up to the true value of a newspaper. But we are slowly but surely doing it. After awhile the leaven will leaven the whole lump, aud every family will realize that they must have at least one or two good papers, and they will not hesitate to pay for them. The people will soon learn that a good county or State paper is worth more than a great institution of learning in any county in the State, and we are notdetracting from the value of colleges. It costs from two to four thousand dollars a year to run a good county paper, and then the editor and printers only make a bare living, but if eight-tenths of the families in any county would subscribe and pay for the paper, the cost of it would be a mere trifle compared to its value. People should learn that it is just as important to pay for a newspaper as it is to pay for shoes or any article they buy. Progressive Farmer. If we could trace Dyspepsia to its source it would lead back to our kitchens. In fact, the secret of good health is good cooking. If well cooked, foods are partially digested. If poorly cooked, they are less digestible than in their raw state. If you are a vic tim of faulty cooking; that is, if you. suf fer from Dyspepsia, the rational cure must be looked for in an artificia l digest ed food, and a food which will at the same time aid the digestion of other foods. Such a preparation virtually rests the tired digestiye organs, thereby restoring them to their natural strength. The Digestive Cordial, as prepared by the Shakers of Mount Lebanon, is just such a preparation, and a t-Ingle ten cent bottle will convince vou of its value. If your druggist doesn't keep it he will be glad to get it through his wholesale house. Laxol is the best medicine for children Doctors rocomtaend it in place of Castor Oil.

In 1884 Eugene Field wrote a story which he called "The Werewolf." V hen it was finished he laid it aside and ayear afterward entirely rewrote it. In 188G he acain took it up and revised it, and during the nine years between that time and his death in November last, he re wrote it eieht times. His last revision pleased him and hedecided to print it, but death came too suddenly, and the story was found, unpublished, among hiseffects Mrs. Field, concluding to have the story- appear, gave it to the editor of The Ladies Home Journal, in which magazine all of Mr. Field's work, outside of his newspaper articles, was presented to the public. The story will be printed in the next issue of the journal, strikingly illus trated by Mr. Howard Pyle.

On the morning of Jan. 27th, the death angel entered the home of Mr. Al fred Paschall and again called for one of its members. This time he laid his hand on the youngest child, and Mttle Allie flew away on the wings of love to his Eternal Home, therejto join his grand father who was called away, last year. Little Allie was between four and five years of age, the pet of his grand-mother and parents. He was one of the most intelligent children I ever knew and his disposition was as sweet and loving as an angel's. He was particularly fond of visitors, and the writer loved him dearly. The grief of his young mother was heart-rending. The death of little Allie was a shock to the community, at it was almost sudden. He had an affec tion of the brain and had been complains ing for some time with headache, but aid not seem to be seriously ill until Sunday night at twelve when he waked from sleep in great pain. Four hours later the battle was over and death was triumphant. The burial services were conducted by Rev. Mr. Hornady, of Ridgeway. There was an unusually large concourse of peo ple to witness it. We extend our heart felt sympathies to the bereaved family, and commend to their consideration a life of more thorough consecration to the service of the Master, so that they may at last join their little boy in the home of their heavenly Father. The death of this child impressed us more fully with the uncertainty of life and the importance of preparing for the grim monster when he comes to claim his victims. A Friend. Middleburg, N. C, Jan. 31st. 'i The floral is Plain. A haggard down cast look he wore. His quivering lip told sorrow's tale; With heavy heart he paced the floor , There seemed no 'scape from the sheriff's sale. - Harsh fate had placed him under a ban, Because, forsooth, he was not wise; He did business on the back date plan In his local paper he didn't advertise.

SAMUEL WATKINS. The Woman of Washington's Heart. Mrs. Burton Harrison has written for the March Ladies' Home Journal an au thoritative sketch of Sally Cary, to whom George Washington, in his private let ters, clearly points as the passion of his life. Mrs. Harrison, who was Miss. Con stance Cary before her marriage, is a direct descendant of Sally Cary, as well as, on her mother's side, of the Fairfax family, into which the Southern beauty of Washington's day finally married.

Dear Sir In answer to your inquiry about the Orinoco guano I will say 1 used it under to bacco, planted on very poor lat-d. 1 used about 800 lbs. of the guano with a little cotton seed meal, and I have never seen sueh fine tobacco before one row through the middle of the field, by accident failed to get any guano, and while the other tobacco grew as high as your shoulders the skipped row was hardly 12 inches nigh. I did not have enough Orinoco for all my crop and finished up with another brand and the dif ference in favor of Orinoco was very great. The other brand was higher priced.
