He spent Monday in Washington and Tuesday in Baltimore. At 2 o'clock Wednesday he sailed on the steam ship Rheiu, of the North German Lloyd line, and is due to land at Bremen next Friday or Saturday week. From Bremen he will go by rail to Aarau, Switzerland, where he expects to remain for a year and a half or two years. He will go to a school of designing and take a thor ough course in this aud allied branch es, and also work in a large damask mill where they make linen instead of cotton goods to better perfect him self in general textile mill work, dye ing, handling machinery, etc. It is not necessary to go out of the United States to study designing or do the work that William Manning aims to do in the business of life or profession he has chosen, but there were certain reasons which operated with him in favor of goingto Switzer land. He had two or three good positions offered him, one to take charge of a lighting and power plant in a flour ishing North Carolina town, but these came after his plans were made to go abroad and pursue his studies further. He hopes to be prepared when he comes back to capably fill any position iu his line his ambition being to be able to do something toward the fur her upbuilding of North Carolina in textile manufac turing and the development of her vast water-powers and their con version into electrical energy, in which he sees a great future and a more prosperous Vind progressive Commonwealth.

Newman will retire from the work at Ilendereon, N. C, at the end of the present conference year. This will leave a vacancy in the pastor ate of Henderson, Liberty and Fuller churches, one of the most important pae to rates in the Eastern N. C. Conference. We sincerely trust that a good man will be secured for the field, as Henderson is a new and very promising work and Liberty near by is one of our oldest and best country churches. Fullers though small in meraberphip is also a live and active church. We have not learned as to Bro. Newman's plans. He is one of our best preachers and most beloved pas tors, and the field that secures his ser vices may count itself fortunate and hap py indeed. Bro. Newman's address is Henderson, X. C The Christian Sun. The above will be learned wi(h re gret. Mr. Newman has a great many friends in Henderson and the terri tory surrounding who will deeeply regret his removal from among us. He is a good man and most excellent citizen, beloved as preacher and pas tor by his people and others, and his dep'arture will be a loss to the com munity. Saint John's Day at Oxford Or phanage. There was a big crowd at Oxford last Friday, celebration'of St. John's Day at the Orphanage.

Bal lou delivered the address of welcome Which was fittingly responded to and Rev. Plato Durham of Concord, was the orator of the day. He was introduced by Grand Master Hackett. Mr. Durham's address was asplendid effort of the kind reflecting high credit upon the talented young man and gifted speaker that he is. The exercises by the children, sing ing, recitations, &c, were very good and proved a most interesting feature of the day to those who heard them. Kept the King at IJome.

Fire Saturday Afternoon. Fire broke out in the cleaning and pressing rooms of J. II. Pralt, next to Dorsey's drug store on Main street, Saturday afternoon completely gut ting that part of the. building and burning up everything in it. Pratt lost all his furniture and fixtures and quite a number of persons lost from a pair of trousers to two and three suits of clothes. Several hundred dollars worth of goods were,, burn.nl one man alone putting his loss at f 130. He was a visitor and had ar rived but a few days before with three or four nice 6uits packed in his trunk. He wanted them pressed and while he was about it he s?nt tie whole lot along at one time. Hence his great er loss. How the fire originated is not known but it is supposed to have caught from the stove on which the irons were heated. Pratt and his wife were at work in the front room, up stairs, and when the fire was discoved every thing back of them was in a light blaze and escape through the only door and down the steps was com pltfely cut off. The alarm was given and when they could stay no longer escape through the windows was at tempted both swinging themselves down and holding on to the windo.v sill. Defore help reached her the wo man fainted or her strength failed and she fell striking on the stone steps below. She was badly shaken up and bruised by the fall and her thigh was broken in two places. Pratt was able to hold on until a step ladder was pushed up to him and he was let down in safety. It was a narrow escape for both and much sympathy is felt for them. Pratt and his wife are among the most worthy and respected represent atives of the colored race in Hender son. And they are two of the most in dustrious and hardworking. Attend ing strictly to business, polite and re spectful, they have built up a good patronage andserved theircustomers with entire satisfaction. The fire awl its attendant misfortune falls heavily upon them but the people of Hender son will not let a worthy person .suf fer and Pratt will establish himself in busines? again and recover from his loss. His greatest concern at present is for his wife, who Dr. Pendleton in forms us is getting on as well as could be expected. Interesting Exercises at theBaptist Church Sunday. Contributed. At the First Baptist church on Sunday last at 1):45 a. m., during the Sunday school hour, Prof. J.

At eleven o'clock Prof. Ilighsmith made an excellent address on "The High er Life." I'rof. Ilighsmith is a talented orator, and it was with much pleasure that the people of Henderson heard him iu his twTo fine addresses. On Sunday evening another feast was in store when Rev. J. 0. "Alderman, of Edenton,N.C, brother of our townsman, Prof. J. T. Alderman, preached a tine sermon, his text being, "Go Forward." This was a delightful day for the mem bers and friends of the church and also a day for rejoicing, as the property belong ing to Mrs. J. H. Tucker on Garnett street has been purchased for a new church building, and the idea now is to put a handsome edifice on this lot, to cost without furnishings about f 30,000. Mr. W. 13.

Dunn Comes to Abrupt End In Warreo Court Yesterday De fendant Submits to Plea of Murder In Second Degree and is (liven Lim it of tbe Law. The trial of E. E. Powell for the murder of Chief of Police Charles W. DuDnr of Scotland Neck, at which time State Senator E. L. Travis and Rep resentative Paul Kitchin, were alao dangerously wounded by Powell, was bejjun at Warrenton Monday. There was little difficulty in selecting a jury this beinjy done within a little more than two hours time. It will be re called that Powell was arraigned at the March terra of Halifax court and a rerdoval was granted, altfer the special venire of 150 had been ex hausted. Warren court was chosen as the place for the trial and the case wus set for the 27th, the second week of the terra. The defense will be in sanity. Former Governor Aycock of the la v firm of Aycock & Winston, Raleigh, and Gay and Midyetteof the Northampton bar, represent the de fendant. Ex-Judge It. W. Winston is not present to take an active part with Mr. Aycock. Solicitor John II. Kerr is assisted by Walter E. Daniel of Weldon, and Congressman Claude Kitchin, of Scot land Neck. Following are the jurors who will pass upon Powell's fate: S. J. Clarke, W. J. Ball, W. E. Hicks, Foster Jones, C. M. Foard, J. C. Bauer, G. S. Tuck r, T. C. Reavis. T. II. Aycock, J. A. Shepard, T. R. Blacknall, Henry Rus h11. The last named is a negro he being the second man called Jn the regular panel, the first two being ac cepted. POWELL GETS :50 YEARS. Tuesday one of the jurors Juror Hicks was taken sick and it looked like there would be a mistrial (with drawing of a juror) and continuance of the case. In view of this possible outcome there was suggestion on both tides defense and prosecution to agree upon a compromise. Wednes day morning a plea of murder in the second degree was entered and ac cepted and Jude Ward pave Powell a sentence of '60 years, the full limit of the law, in the State's prison. This is virtually a life sentence and maybe the ends of justice have been met how ever much the aged murderer may have deserved the hangman's noose or the electric chair. When this disposition of the case was announced to the court Judge Ward stated that he approved the ac tion of counsel, saying that it was his opinion that the jury would not take to plea of insanity advanced by the defense and acquit the prisoner, and that while there was soinpevidence of premeditation and deliberation, he had no idea that a verdict of murder in the first degree would have been secured. A proposition to settle the matter on a plea of second degree murder came from the defense at the March term of Halifax court, when the case was removed to Warren county for trial, but this not acceptable to the State. Notice to the Daughters of the Con. federacy. Vance County Chapter, United Daughters of the Confederacy, and W. A. Class Chapter, are requested to meet at the residence of Mrs. C. M. Cooper at a quarter to eleven o'clock Sunday morning, July 3rd, and go in a body to the Baptist church, the occasion of a special sermon to be preached to the Confederate Veterans by the pas tor.
