Interesting Papers- p...Tn Meet in li irhaiti Tho last business session of tho Y. C. A. convention opened wich til 3 same vigorous interest that characterized toe entire meeting. The first business was the rcpor.s now. the chairmen of the Sve districts in the State. There reports excited an inter esting discussion, which was led by Cap tain Wm. Black, of Maxtor.. A resolu iion was adopted requesting tho district committees to bo diligent, and to organ ize if possible at least one association in every county. It was shown that the membership ha increased about 1,000 during the la nr, and fourteen new associations v organized. The reports were encouraging, and showed substantial growth. After these reports followed papers on "Secular Agencies,'' Hans. P. Anderson, General Secretary at Asheville, and "Claims of the Association on Business Men,' by W. A, Blair in the absence of Mr. J. S. Carr, who was to have taken this topic. The Young Men's Monthly of Wilmington was adopted as a State organ, and sub-editors will he appointed from each district to assist in getting the association news for its its colurns. It was resolved to take some steps towards opening a reading-room tit Wrightsville during the entrapment cf the State ti oops, and Mr. J. b. Allen offered to deed to the committee a lot for a permanent building. The offer was accepted by a rising vote. Durham was unanimously selected as te;l With Interesting -It .to And Some i:c ot Honor.

The Sherill ot W ilson Hot Alter a Forger. Mr, Jonas W. Crowell, the popular and vigilant sheriff of Wilson county, was m Raleigh yesterday. On tho 17th day of February, 1887, a man namec Y. R. Lynch falsely made and forgei a promissary note payable to John Hutchinson, cashier of the First Na tional Bank of Wilson, for tho sum o $ 00. Sheriff Crowell read a telegram that "Bill Lynch was in tho Raleigh tiail for illicit distillery." Always alert, sheriff Crowell, ried with the neces sary papers in. the case, thinking that this 'Bill Lynch" was the "Bill Linch" who had defrauded the Wilson Bank, came to Raleigh after him. An examination showed that the man in jail was named W. J. Lynch, aud that ho was born and raised near Apex He was forty years old, whereas the forger from Wilson is only about twen ty iivo or six. There was not the slight est resemblance in tho two men. Sher iff Crowell had to go back without his prisoner. This caso of mistake recalls a hu morous incident in Wilson court a few days ago. A man was indicted for stealing a goose, and when the case was called for trial requested a postpone ment because ono of his witnesses wa ahseut. "What," inquired the judgn, "do you expect to prove by the witness who is absent. Tho reply was, "I ex a a a 1 a -w- poet to prove mat tne gooso l am nifirpeu with stealing is not the ijoosk I DID STKAL." sf7 1.4.3, was taken up for his relief The afternoon was devoted to work.

Wills, of Oak Ridgo Institute, rea l a paper on "The Use of the Bible in College and General Work." G. C. Worth, of the University, on "Winning men." At night C. K. Ober, the luternational College Secre tary, addressed the convention on "Tne Col'ege Movement." Mr. L. A Coulter, State Secretary, held the farewell services in the Opera House ou Saturday night. On Sunday there was a delightful programme of meetings, all well attended, and then the convention adjourned after the greatest and most enthusiastic meeting in its history. It makts iio pretention to good looks, and compared with modem chairs it is sadly wanting in the attributes of solid com fort. There's not a graceful curve or turn about it. It has not even such an appendage as the "rocker." It sits stillly and squarely on the floor, is turn and scrawny looking, and is, among chairs, "the lean and slippered panta loon w sans everything." But parts of its history are interest ing. It was first own' 1 by Mr. Wm. Audertou, of Halifax county, Ya.

J no. Kerr, one ot tne great est Baptist preachers of North Carolina and Virginia, went to baptizs them, it appears that he hesitated somewhat on account of their great size aud weight. But the diiliculty was overcome by call ing in the services of this chair. First, r. Audertou took his. seat in it, and strong arms carried him into the water, when the preaclier immersed both can didate and chair. Mrs. Anderton was baptized in the satno manner. The chair, alter this, had various ex periences. Years later it was brought into North Carolina, to Union Camp Ground, in what was then Rowan coun ty (now Davie), and m 1835 it was occu pied by President Dockery aud J no. Kerr during the sittings of the Baptist State Convention. In 1834 it was the during a Ground. that Rev, SMALL SALES. THE IGASKKTliOLDS ITS OV, INCiiEASCIN SUPPLY. New York. M.rch 17. -Messrs.

I. lortou--V!io Was Murdered by J. P. Davis. Mr. II. D. Mason, of Chatham coun ty, writes the Chronicle as i'ollowa : At the strong solicitation of Dr. L. A. Hanks, Count' Physician of Chatham county, the relatives aud friends of J. D. Horton, who was murdered by J. P. Davis, consented to have his body ex humed, and on the loth of March the citizens met and took up the body. Three leading physicians of the com munity made a searching and thorough examination, and the following is their certificate, fully endorsed by the niauy citizens present : "We, the undersigned, practicing physicians, do hereby certify that we exhumed tho body of J. D. Horton on Saturday, the 15th of March, and thor oughly examined the wounds iutlicted by J. P. Davis, and find as follows : One smooth cut, two and a half inches in length, through the cranium into the brain substance; another cut, one a half inches from the long cut, also into the urain, an incn or men and a nait in length. There were also two blows from a blunt instrument, which cracked the cranium from the long cut on the mould of the head to the right temple bone, aud also a crack extending from one cut to the other; and we hereby certify that the wounds were iullietel by a sharp edged steel instrument." A. Tueo. Cotton, M. D. J. M. O'Kelly, M. D. W. D. Young, M. D. Mr. Mason expresses the hope that the result of this examination will satis fy the dissatisfied relatives of Horton of Davis' guilt. It will bo remembered that Davis in his defense said that ho killed Horton in sell-defence, and that in defending himself he used a boot jack and not a sharp edged instrument. THE FERTILIZER TAX. its There is a now grocery firm in the city. Mr. T. B. Moseley, better known as ''Tom Moseley," has bought a half interest in tho grocery liouso of J. R. Terrell and these gentlemen will con duct the grocery business in Raleigh. Now, tho moro mention of these two names is synonymous with attention, caro and reliability. They extend a cor dial invitation to their friends and the public to visit them, and the Chroni cle now affirms that any call made there will bo both pleasant and profitable. A Robust and Lively Octegenai iun. Mr. Robt. E. Harris, of Wake Forest, celebrated his eighty-sixth birthday on Sunday, the 10th, inst. nis health, ap petite and color is about as good as when he was fifty years old, and it is a great ploasuro to him to walk four or five miles any pleasant evening to see and talk with his friends and neighbors, which ho very often does. He is quite fond of reading the papers, and believes from all tho signs of the times, that Vance will succeod himself in tho Sen ate; that Cleveland will be the next Provident and hopes to live to voto for him.

Local forecast for Raleigh and vicinity to-day: Fair weather; warmer with southwesterly winds. A Suit Begun for tionality The American Company the Mover. The contest about the Fertilizer tax has culminated in an action for a man damus, commenced by the American Fertil izer Co., of Norfolk, Va. , against the State Treasurer and the Commis sioner of Agriculture, to compel them to issue a license to the company, al though it pays under protest. The position taken by the company is, that the tax in question is not only unconstitutional, but that it is unjust and unequal in its operation, compelling small dealers to pay as much on a sin gle brand as large dealers. The company claims that a tonnage tax, of so much on each ton sold, is the only way to tax fertilizers, aud dealers would not object to it. The American Fertilizer Co. intend to contest the validity of the $500 lieense tax to the court of last resort, and in case they shall be successful, they in tend to refund to each farmer who pur chases their "Peruvian Mixture" this year, twenty-five cents on each aid every ton purchased "Preachers' Chair" at meeting at union Camp Uu this occasion it is Known Mr. Kerr preached a sermon three hours long, commencing at eleven o'clock and preaching till two; but the great congregation of listeners never wearied, and when the preacher stop ped they rose up and begged Lim to "preach on ! preach on !'' The chair was recently bought by Mr. E. Frost, of Davie county, and present ed to the rooms of the State Mission and Sunday School Board of the North Car olina Baptist Convention. And there it will rest and remain as an object of rich interest in its connections to the denom ination. 1 1 0 W T O Ciller L A T E 31 0 X i ! Y . The Point Illustrated by a Italeigh In-st:tuion--a Well Known Fuel Used a a Pointer. Tho Ciikoxicle hud the pleasure of a chat with ono of the brainest business men in Raleigh yesterday, and the talk turned on money and how to circu late it. "There's no want of knowledge," said the gentleman, "as to how money can be circulated in Raleigh. Every body knows how it can bo done, but the trouble is, there is not enough utili zation of the knowledge we have. And, Fm not going to talk about what Ral eigh business ought to do. They al ready know what is needed as well as anybody. But I vould like for some body to continually emphasize the fact that the way to circulate money and to have plenty of it is to furnish work for people. Raleigh is already moving handsomely in this line, but she can't do too much of that kind of thing. lo go over all the particulars and minutiae of a matter of this kind would be tedious; so I'll just illustrate mv point by saying that the Raleigh k Gas ton railroad shops in this city pay uot to the employees who work there about one hundred and twenty-five thousand dollars per annum. Nearly all of this money is spent in Raleigh for clothing, provisions, fuel, house rent and the general necessaries oi life. Did it ever occur to you what a fearful "slam" it would bo to Raleigh to lose that circu lation ? And to reverse the situation, have you ever thought what a gcod thing it would be if two or three more institutions should be put up here, all three of which would pay out another aggregate of one hundred and twentv five thousand dollars? There's where the business lies. It would pay the business men of the city" to work and scheme for these establish ments, even though they should not be financially interested in them to the amount of a cent. They are beginning to realize this tact, and I tell you now' that they will be doins:some noble work along thut line before the city is much older." traders loot ior mo expumunu demand in tho appearance of buyers for export from our small stock, lhis stock, however, has been slowly in creasing of late and will doubtless con tinue to bo so during March, as many of the purchases from the interior have been delayed. The morning count of Cfn,.i.- shows an increase of lo,0U0 bales, supposed to bo caused by the stoppage here of cotton reported for New i ng land upon anival. The deficiency between the consolidated stocks will therefore be reduced to about 215,000 bales. These together with the increase in port receipts were tho bearish feat ures, while a partial settlemement of the colliers' strike in England eucouraged those who looked for a strike in Man chester when the difficulty is tiuaiiy settled. Receipts at ...few Orleans to morrow are estimated at 10,000 bales. Receipts at ports to day estimated at 11,000 bales. Midland uplands 11 7-10. Sales iG2 bales.

It not only shows the way to ad vertise a business By telling about it but it tells of somo interesting scientific facts. The great problem of killing disease microbes without killing tin man, has been solved, by tho discovery of Radam's Mickobe Killek. Yon should know about it. When that remedy is applied to bacteria diseases it never stops till it is victorious. No it, never stops short of that, though there was a big stop (period) after the name of tho big "ad."

If there is any one thing well estab lished it is the fact that tho better the food a man eats the better the man. It is therefore tiie essence of follv to cat meats which offend and irritate that portion of the anatomy when meats that will cheer and comfort are attainable under the same conditions and at the same cost. This is just precisely what Mr. J. Schwartz, tho "veteran old meat man" thinks. He believes that common sense is largely predominant in Raleigh people, and that they will Lave good meats if they are procurable.
