V. h, ! A Wreckless Statement. The -Morganton Herald of Oct. 25th says etli to rally: North Carolina has no truer son than Charles Manly Bus bee. A man with a soldierly record and statesman; one whom the State of North Carolina is proud to honor. Mr. Busbee undertook to manage Chairman"" Simmons cam paign in the senatorial contest, but our latest advices are that he has resigned or h is been superseded by Alex Stronach, a talei-.ted young attorney, of Raleigh. Well you ought to read Mr. Stronach's circular! is evident to our minds that the campaign has grown too strong, and that Mr. UusbeJ will not be a parly, or lend his aid to the methods resorted to by Chairnan Simmons'1 friends. There is no excuse for mak ing such a statement when the truth could have been soeasily j obtained. As soon as report was learned Mr. CM. Busbee was wired and he immediately answered: Any statement that I have resigned as manager for Simmons is false. He will be elected Senator, notwithstand ing the unfair assaults that are being made ujxn him, by a majority of thirty to fifty thousand. ' (Signed,) C. M. Busbee. Such reckless statements without any attempt to find out if true can but injure the party making them. Letter from Marion. Correspondence of The News. Catawba river, after being- sick and in bed for two years, was able to be out of her bed1' yesterday, doing heavj' damage to the farmers.

Democrats here will have a treat alTorted them in the visit of Hon. R. B. Glenn. He will address the citizens here to-day upon the political issues of ! the day. Marion is vi le awake and is in the midst of a first-class boom, with the music of the hammer, saw aud jack plane; not the weak-kneed, dishrag kind of a bm, but a healthy boom, caused by its many industries. (Jus Martin, who is emploj'cd at Thermal City, this State, some days 'ago shot and stunned a huge hawk. (Jus placed a small bell about the hawk's neck, giving his name and ad dress. The next day after turning the hawk loose (li:s received a card from Columbia, S. C, stating the bird had been killed near there. Mr. M. C. Shaping, our enterprising lumberman, who came here some years ago from the live town of Morganton, has done much good to McDowell county in giving employment and good wages to the working class.

We have not yet hail a killing frost here this season and the katydids yet give us music, though not so gaily as they did some weeks ago. With the first approach of cold weather the male L- observed to cease his love song, grows melancholy, droops and finally expires and tumbles from the tree tops. The female, in the meantime, is busi ly employed in making ruts in the trees with her sharp, curved pierces, and having deposited her 'eggs therin, she. too. declines, gives up and drops after hex mate. The katydid, as he i nicknamee, or to give him his cor rect name, is cyrtophyllus coneavus. R. N. M. Marion, N. C, Oct. 25, 1900.
