C. mm SOME FERVID ORATORY. COMMENCEMENT ADDRESSES AND PO LITICAL SPEECHES COMMENTED ON By Dr. Kinjrsbury, Who Has Heard Many Notable Ones in His Day A Few of the Most Striking Examples of Fervid Oratory as He Recalls Them After The Lapse of Years. .Wilmington Messenger. This is the season of college endings called commencement. The "orator" is on hand all around the State. We agree with our gifted contemporary of Richmond, Va., the Christian Advo cate, that it is a good time to consider the length of speeches. Dr. Lafferty says pointedly: "The summer solstice approaches. Would that the torrid air might sim mer speeches into essences. An obese, dropsical, waddling oration, with the mercury bubbling, is punishment of the public without indictment or ver dict. Boards of Trust ought to dis courage wearisome unwindings in warm weather." Our observation through fifty years of school entertainments is that almost invariably the addresses and sermons are too long. We do not recall one on a commencement occasion that we did not feel satisfied when it ended. A speaker, especially if he is not intense ly magnetic and finely imaginative, who is not a true orator, is in his own way to reputation if he fires at his crowd a long, dreary, platitudinous talk, interspersed with much verse, that leads the cultivated part of the audience to conclude that he had been "at a feast of the poets and stolen the scraps," to quote the greatest poet from memory, as we have no copy of his works at hand. A twenty-five minutes, or half-hour address spoken with stirring fervor and kindling with inspiring and noble "thoughts that breathe" because clothed in "words that burn" (how expressive is that word "breathe" and highly poetical!) will arouse and interest and hold a promiscous audience, on a hot day, when an hour's speech or more apt to be more of drooping, limping rhetoric and rounded common-place delivered in a drowsy monotone with out gesticulation or emphasis, will simply invite dissipation of mind, and cause gentle sleep, "tired nature's sweet restorer;" to fall pleasantly upon the hearers. The most animating and eloquent political speech we ever heard was by Judge John Kerr, in 1852, in the court house at night in Oxford. Next to that, the most vehement, passionate and stirring political oratory we have heard was by Judge Fowle at Raleigh, in 1S76, delivered also at night, after Vance's nomination for Governor. H )th these splendid efforts were com paratively short. The most eloquent speech we ever heard before an assem bly met to express sympathy and se cure aid was by Henry W. Miller at Raleigh in 1S45 or 6, when Ireland's potato crop had failed and the people met to aid the sufferers. The most felicitous and admirable speech we ever listened to were by George E. Badger at Raleigh, in introducing Ed ward Everettt who was to deliver his celebrated "Washington Oration." This was in 1859. Col. Duncan K. McRae said in our hearing that Badger's little speech was the only eloquence he heard that night. The scene was the Commons Hall, in the Capitol. The other introductory of surpassing felicity was by Col. McRae when Vance 1. ade his masterly speech in Wilmington in 1S80. We said of it in a newspaper that it was the best political speech we ever heard. We have had no occasion to change the statement. Col. McRae held the same opinion, we know. These introduct ory speeches were short, pointed, rich, inspired. The highest oratory we have ever heard was not at the bar, not on the hustings, not in deliberative assembly, but in the pulpit. In fact by all com parison the noblest eloquence of the modern world, with perhaps few ceptions, has come from the ambassa dors of God. If we were writing an essay we would particularize and il lustrate. We have heard public men of great renown Clay and Webster and Everett and Winter Davis and Alex Stephens and hosts of others and we have heard distinguished preachers from New York to New Or leans. The noblest and most com manding eloquence in our hearing has come from the preachers of the Gos pel. The most beautiful sermon extemporized we ever heard was twenty-five minutes long. It was preached before an ignorant congrega tion (not more than three fairly edu cated people present) in 1S64 in Hal ifax county by Rev. Thomas G. Lowe. The most overwhelmingly impressive, most excoriating in invective, most in tensely passionate, most sur-charged with a rhetoric that corruscated with absolute brilliancy and shone with im aginative splendor, was preached in this city in our hearing by a man of about 32, and but ten years or so in the ministry. It was only some twenty minutes long. It was terrific, it scorched, it was like red hot lava, or, rather, like sheet lightning. We shall never forget it. Just now everybody is beginning to take a Spring Medicine. And it isa good thing ; to do provided you take Simmons Liver Regulator the best Spring medicine.

A Practical Farmer, a Successful Law yer and a Strong Debater In 1891 He Wiped out a Republican rlajority of 78,000 in Iowa. The name most prominently men tioned in connection with the Demo cratic nomination for President is probably that of ex-Governor Horace Boies, of Iowa. Because of this prominence anything relating to his life is interesting. The following sketch, written by Mr. J. M. Leach, a North Carolinian now located in Washington City, for the Charlotte Observer shows the manner of man he is: Horace Boies is a fibrous man. He was born 18 miles from Buffalo, N. Y., 69 years ago. His parents were American born, his mother being distinctively English. The ancestry of his father was remotely French. He met President Cleveland at the Buffalo bar, and was at one time a member of the New York Legisla ture. He commenced studying law when he only had 3.00 in the world and no influential friends to help him. He moved to Waterloo, Iowa, in 1867, where he has since resided, except dur ing his two terms as Governor of Iowa. He has been a successful lawyer, and is a practical farmer, owning two very large farms, and it is his boast that there is not a step in farm work which he has not performed. He has only been a Democrat for the past sixteen years, having left the Republican party in 1880 when the extreme protection plank of that party's platform was adopted, and when Iowa Republican ism was championing sumptuary laws in regard to which he said: "The proposed laws will substitute the un popular power of legal coercion for those great moral forces on which the cause of temperance, like that of relig ion, must continue to rely or cease to exist." He is 5 feet 10 inches tall, weighs 190 pounds, wears about 7 hat, has broad shoulders and deep chest. He is Romanesque in the rugged outlines of his face, and in personal appearance reminds one somewhat of Ambassador Thomas F. Bayard. While not a great stump orator, he is a strong debater, and has as strong a personal following in Iowa, almost, as the late great Sen ator Vance, of blessed memory, had in North Carolina as shown by the fact that in one of his campaigns in Iowa, in a little town of 430 inhabitants, he had bet wen 5,000 and 6,000 people to hear him. But his greatest triumph was in '91, after the Republicans had in '86 gerrymandered the State until they considered 10 to 11 districts staunchly Republican. Horace Boies was then a strong friend of the white metal, but he made tariff reform the chief issue of that campaign, and in a Republican State of 78,000 majority he won by 8,216 plurality, on the largest vote ever cast in the State 420,000. Senator DuBois, silver Republican, of Idaho, says if the St. Louis Conven tion straddles on the money question or declares lor gold and the Chicago Convention .nominates Horace Boies on a free silver platform he will vote for him and "thousands of other West ern Republicans will do the same thing." Referring to the regret expressed by the Macon Telegraph that "a fair test of the silver question will not be had at the next election," the Wil mington Star thinks that with a strad dle or a gold declaration at St. Louis, and a free silver platform at Chicago the issue would be sufficiently clear cut for all practical purposes. Mr. James Perdue, an old soldier resid ing at Monroe, Mich., was severely afflicted with rheumatism hut received prompt re lief from pain by using Chamberlain's Pain Balm. He says: "At times my back would ache so badly that I hardly could raise up. If I had not gotten relief I would not be here to write these few line. Cham berlain's Pain Balm has done me a great deal of good and I feel very thankful for it." For sale by M. Dorsey, drugg hi The latest use to which electricity has been applied is as a local anaes thetic in dentistry. Dr. Shuhmaun, a German scientist in Chicago, has dis covered, it is said, that the invisible force can render numb any nerve in the human mouth and permit the am putation ot a live tooth, if necessary, without the slightest pain to the pa tient and without making him uncon scious. The secret has not been made known, but it is said to be the diffusion of cocoaine and the benumbing of the nerve centres, by electricity. If success ful in dentistry there seems to be no reason why its application should not be extended to surgery in general, and in connection with the Roentgen rays the possibilities of relieving humanity of suffering may be almost infinite. Flattery and fun are not found in the Bible. HONEST MEN NEEDED. OFFICIALS WE HAVE AND THOSE WE SHOULD HAVE. Rev. Sam Jones Writes a Strong Ar ticle on the Subject of Honesty in Politics. Important Questions to Be Settled by The Christian Voters of America. America is a great country for offices and officers. Every other fellow you m.eet is an official in something. . He is a national, State, county, city, church, lodge, convention, board of trade, club or some other official, and every fourth woman is an officer in something. She is president, secre tary, or the proud holder of some office in club, society, league, card party or something. Most of those who have no office are hunting one, and many of them playing bootlick to those who have offices to distribute. When a fel low begins to show you extra cordiality, you may know that he wants to sell your real estate or stocks, negotiate a loan, write you for insurance, or get ycu to beg for him in securing some office: One of our seculiar papers no ted the fact that when ex-Governor Taylor made his first lecture in Mem phis no one called on him. When he came to Memphis a few days since his ropm was crowded. On the first visit it was generally believed that this pop ular platform man would never again quit the lecture platform to distribute offices, but on the second it was clear that he would again be Governor. See? This bootlicking, office-seeking, office trading and honor-swapping business is cutting the grit from under our statesmanship and our manhood. Offices depend on boodle, wire work and swapping honors, and the pander ing to the powers so much that it is no longer a question of who is fit, but who can win. The question with the officer is no longer what is duty, but what is popular or what will secure this or that other office for me when my pres ent term expires. The people, dis couraged and hopeless, have turned the politics of the dbuntry over to the professional bosses and government pap-suckers, and are looking on in amazement to see the end 'vox pop uli, vox Dei" but the voice of the politician is the voice of the devil. THE HOPE OF THE COUNTRY. The hope of the country lies in the purity of her officials, and the only reason that we have not gone to utter rot is in the fact that we have a few honest, true, unpurchasable officials. Some of the best men of our country have filled our offices, and these great good men have been our salvation; but the work of these good men has been largely checkmated by the vil lainy of the corrupt professional poli ticians in office. The moral and finan cial condition of this country for the next halt century is now going on. The catostrophe is now on, and in this political upheaval the great con tinental mountains will be found whose awful caverns of magnificent heights will destroy or delight for years to come. No surer did the great catas trophe centuries ago form the AppaU achian and Rocky mountain systems than that the agitation now going on will fotm great fundamental systems in our country that will last one hun dred years. The advance of scientific discoveries, the advance of machinery,, and the consequent change of labor, the settlement of our whole country and the occupation of all our westerni lands, the discovery of the resources of our whole country, and the adjustment of our manufacturing interests and labor problem, the settlement of our foreign relations, the settlement of our monetary basis, and the settlement of the saloon question all these and more are in the present upheaval, to say nothing of the new woman and tights nnd bloomers. The next ten years are to be stormy years full of earthquakes in the civil, social and religious world. I am hopeful of the outcome, but everything depends upon our intelligent leaders. And, first of all, we need intelligence and indepen dencein the rank and file of our citi zenship, for the people first lead for a leader, and then he leads the people. The leader is the product of the ballot in the hands of the common people. Give us a pure, patriotic, honest Presi dent, the balance of Senatorial power lying in his veto or signature and the proper manning ot many omces Deing in his hands, we may be hopeful of our chief official. PL RE HONEST LEADERS NEEDED. Let us have wise and good men for our United States Senators, and we may hope for much in national legisla tion; but in drunken carousals, ink stand battles, boodle hunting lobbyists, self-seeking politicians to quarrel and fight and kill time in Washington, things look dark. The most hopeful signs of the times is in the judiciary of our country. This has been the great bulwark between us and anarchy. What we need above everything is for the voice of the people to be heard and the yoke of political bossism to be broken. Our officers are supported by our taxes, and when the citizen fails to pay his tax the officer takes his property, but when the officer fails to do his duty the citizen meekly suffers. Why not demand of our officers the execu tion of the law or the surrender of the office? If the policeman, sheriff and prosecuting attorney do not properly arrest and bring to trial the violators of the liquor law, the Sibbath law, and every other law, let the voice of the people be heard. If the grand jury and other juries do not find true bills and make honest and speedy convic tions, let the voice of the people be heard. If the judge does not do his duty, let the voice of the people be heard. The old politician has lost the cracker off his whip, and it is rav eling: the steers are taking to the. woods and some of them have thrown down the whip and -are howling, "Sook, sook!" in the most conciliatory terms. The present political round-up reminds me of a Texan corralling his ponies. The politicians are running the people in the convention corner of the field, but it is very uncertain whether they will jump the fenci in front, break ranks behind, or stand and take the lariat. PEOPLE TIRED OF BEING CORRALLED. I think the people are getting tired of being corralled like Texan ponies, and there are going to be some old political tricksters lying in the fence corners, with the blood running out of their ears, before the convention or cor ralling season is over. The office seek ers hardly know where they "are at," because it is so hard to locate the dear people now. Sam Jones. Original Observations. TOrange (Va.) Observer. 1 Words are not always the evidence of thought. Men often'begin to rise when they begin to lie. A load of vexation is lifted by strength of character. When heart-strings are tuned to love life is full of music. Out in old Kentucky is where the blue grass widows grow. The prettiest thing in the new spring hats is our girl's face. The remarks of a blunt man are sometimes very pointed. Pride has two seasons a forward spring and an early fall. Love seldom goes where it is cent if there are dollars in the way. A kiss is the fragrance of love when in its. richest and sweetest bloom. Don't praise a woman's complexion too much, it may be all put on. Those western cyclones are like a new broom they always "sweep clean." Youth sucks the sugar coating and old age chews the bitter pill of life. It is a novel thing now-a-times to find a person who is not a novel reader. Who ever heard of a woman who was heartless enough to step on a mouse? If ignorance is bliss, we know a lart'e number of people who ought to be su premely happy. Divorces are becoming so numerous that one term marriages are no longer fashionable. Some actors are born, some achieve poor houses and others have poor houses thrust on them. The bicyclist may not have very much money, and yet he frequently comes down with the dust. -The young-" nan who is an adept at sowing wild oats is the very one who would scorn to be a farmer. There is a class of joiners who are not at all affected in their business by labor strikes. It is the minister we refer to. Orange has a man who is so lazy that his friends say that it is impossible to cut him to the quick, since he hasn' t got any. In this world of almost universasial failure it is pleasant to note that the man who sets out to make a fool of himself generally succeeds. Honesty, in these times is regarded much in the same light as an article of merchandise, its value is determined by the extent to which it will pay. Mothers will find Chamberlain's Cough Remedy especially valuable for croup and whoopingcough. It will give prompt re lief and is safe and pleasant. We have sold it for several years and it has never failed to give the most perfect satisfaction. G. W. Richards, Duquesne, Pa. Sold by M. Dorsey, druggist. An Iowa saloon keeper has applied for an injunction against the proposed bvllding of a church near his shop on the ground that it may injure his bus iness. According to the law in that State a saloon cannot be located within 300 feet of a church' and this vender of wet goods contends as he was first located he has a pre emption on the 300 foot range. Museum Confidences. "My husband," said the wife of the bearded lady, "is such a trial to me! He knows exactly what my clothes cost." " He's a dear compared to mine.'.' said .the uv 'al the petrified man. "You can't guess how hard he is to get along with." She Couldn't Wait. Lady "I want to sit for a picture."

That's the trouble with some people, they have no time to wait for results. Some women will take a dose or so of Dr. Pierce's Favorite Prescription and expect to feel well immediately.

This Condition of Things as He ' Nobody that ever had the pleasure Reads the Signs. of knowing general Fitz Hugh Lee, " our consul-General at Havana, will be Lieut. C A. L. Tottten, U. S. A., surprised to learn that he is hypnotis whose interpretations of the B.ble ' ing General Weyler into a heretofore and prophecies have won him fame '-unknown degree of gentleness and in the past, thinks that the end of the complaisance. In his debonnair pres age is at hand, and that the St. Louis ence, before his amiable and cheerful tornado, the political situation and demeanor, in the hearing of his heartv other present conditions prove that he laugh and with the cordial grasp of is right. In a statement of his views, j his hand even such a nature as Wey which he has just issued he says: j ler's must melt. It is quite easy to "It will not be denied that if a 1 conceive that after a hrief amnain. magnet revolves in a circular orbit about a central core that is in con nection with a register, the register will indicate no variation during the the revolution, while, if the revolu tion, be eccentric, as, for instance, in an elliptical orbit, the register will inevitably indicate maxima and mini ma, as the outward magnet draws near to and away from the central core. Now the earth is just such a magnet, revolving about the sun, which is an other, rotating about its own axis, j Hence the needle points to the north, because of the thermo-electric action 1 of the sun upon the whole magnet. As the earth's orbit is elliptical, it is a well-known scientific fact that we( have periods of maxima and minima in electrical phenomena, during both the diurnal motion and the yearly revolution, as well as a secular rise and fall. "So with all the planets. When they are at their nearest to the sun, or in perihelia, we have a maximum and the reverse obtains at their aphelia. When two or more planets are in coin cident relation the comic resultant is increased. "Let it now be noticed that we (human beings) are the denizens of our own terrestrial magnet, its subjects,. so to speak, and are bound to show forth the influence in our collective capacity. And not 01 ly we but the atmosphere and the sea, aye, and the depths beneath, yea, and the physical currents in the human body and all that this implies must and will and do respond to the varying influences of the solar system, as a whole, and as ex pressed at the solar centre, and then telegraphed outward to all of its ele ments. "Now, I am advancing no new theory, but one founded on the works ot no less authority than Noah Webster, whose disquisition upon storms, pesti lences, their history and periodicity, was considered important enough by our ancestors to be published at Gov ernment expense about 100 years ago. He was followed by Dr. Knapp, of Chicago, who, in 1882, propounded the perihelian theory, and anticipated all that is now going on in the solar system. So, also, Benner, famous among all stock brokers, financiers, and grain merchants for his prophe cies as to the cycles of Irade, the rise and fall of prices, elaborated the idea from another standpoint, and a host of other specialists hive treated it alone, the whole ran f religion, politics, business, crime, insanity, life and mor tality. "Twice in the Christian era three of the greater planets exterior to earth have been in coincident perihelia, in the sixth and sixteenth century. They were famous eras of plague, pestilence, and perturbation among men, and now for the first time in the history of nfn all of the planets, exterior as well as interior, superior as well as inferior, are approaching a coincident period of ominous and I cannot but believe mulific influence. It will culminate only at the very end of this century, and may extend well over into the next. At that time all of the planets will be in line, conjunction, tugging together at the sun, while the earth upon the opposite side of the sun, will be subjected to their united action. I speak in general terms and upon premises that have been broadly pub lished in standard journals. From the physical standpoint alone this con dition of affairs cannot but result in widespread disaster, expressed in all the terms that nature knows, cyclones, eaihquakes, tidal waves, etc., and among men, such an unbalancing of the normal condition as will try to their deepest foundations the institu tions upon which the false system of modern society lives and moves and has its being. "Already we can hear the mutter of the cosmic powers that are con spiring against us. I would have id difficulty of convincing a St. Louisian of this. I probably will be branded as a bald-headed fool by some Eastern paper, whose locality! is reserved for parallel disaster in due time.

Lee and Weyler. tance "Our Htz," as they call him down in Virgina, so completely im pressed himself upon the captain gen eral that the latter just told him to do as if he were at home and help him self. Hence, we hear of the United States consul general visiting Cuban prisons, having access to such captives as he desires to see, getting permission to visit the Spanish lines and even going beyond to the insurgent's 'camp; in fact we obtain the impression that Valeriano Weyler is General Fitzhugh Lee's most obedient servant. From all this the happiest auguries may be drawn for the personal inter course between Gen. Weyler and Gen. Lee, but it is not safe to prognosticate from it a change in the Weylerian method of administration or conduct ing war. 1 he insurgents and their sympathizers will be shot and butch ered just the same, either in the Ha vana fortresses or in the cane fields or the country roads. Gen. Lee will have no trouble in ascertaining that there is a vast difference between the sort of fighting he used to do in the late unpleasantness and that carried on by Weyler and his subordinate gen erals. However gracious Weyler may be to Lee in his palace at Havana, out side of its wails he is the blood-thirsty monster yet and ever will be. But the insurgents have two power ful allies just now; one is the sickness that now attacks the Spanish troops in Cuba, the other is the prospect of a revolution in Madrid, the possible re sult of the disclosures which General Campos threatens to make in the Cor. tez as to the conduct of the war on the island. Even now Madrid is in a ferment and the most trifling cause may serve to produce an explosion. Cutting Acquaintances. There are some acquaintances we would be glad to cut. They do us no credit and draw too largely upon our kindness and our cash. Other acquaintances there are that drain our life s blood and sap our vitality. Dyspepsia and its accompanying evils, impure blood, mental depression, night-mares, fear and nervousness are ac quaintances to be d:sposed of with all ce lerity. Heed this, ye sufferers! Take Dr. Pierce's Golden Medical Discovery and your unpleasant acquaintances will soon be gone, for this sovereign remedy drives out all the impurities from the sys tem. Send for free pamphlet. Address World's Dispensary Meeical Association, Buffalo, N. Y. Carr or Brown. r Morgan ton Herald. The Herald has been and still is for J. S. Carr for Governor, provided of course that Mr. Carr either desires or will accept the nomiuation. We feel that there is a very general sentiment over the State favorable to his candi dacy and a very strong concensus of opinion that he can be elected by a handsome majority. There is no man in the State who has done more for her material development ;no man in the State who has been as liberal and catholic in his charity; no man in the State who has a warmer place in the affections of the people; no man who has done more for Democracy; no man more entitled to its just and grateful consideration. If he will accept the the nomination we are for him against the field. If he will not, we have a second choice, and the fact that he is second in no wise detracts from his sterling worth, his intellectual strength, his splendid public, record, his ability as a forceful speaker, and his unflinch ing Democracy. We refer to Judge Geo. H. Brown. The judge, like Mr. Carr, is faithful in his espousal of the cause of 16 to 1, yet we have no quar rel with him on that score. He is a true and loyal son of North Carolina; an eminent and impartial jurist, who has presided over her courts with great acceptability to the public, and who, at no time, has allowed anything to be placed in the scales of justice but what ought there to have been weighed. Fearless, bold, aggressive, he would thrust his keen, trenchent scimiter into the corpulent rotundity of Russell's venom and disembowel and annihilate that virulent defamer of all that true North Carolinians hold dear and sa cred.

Sickness can usually lie cured In cases of dyspepsia, heartburn and sour stomach always take "Ripans Tabules." This good remedy b com pounded largely of Rhubarb and Soda. The one acts gently on the bowels; the other sweetens the stomach. "Ri pans Tabules" are sold by me for 50c. a box. Being Well is impossible if the drug you buy are not reliaba) and jure. Besides coming here for BJTpAm Tab ules," you should come also when the doctor writes a prescription for you. The doctor's advice ami my pur. drugs are pretty sure to make sick people well.
