Mr. Jones va3 dressed in a full suit of black, with Prince Albert coat. He wore a standing collar and a white sai.i-u bow cravat.

The iron ore is of the best quality of brown hematite and other qualities. There are also largo deposits of talc which is used for many purposes and is quite valuable. The county has unexcelled water power, consisting of Iliawassa, Valley. and Nottla rivers and many smaller streams. They afford sufficient water po wer for machin ery aud mauufacturiug purposes. The location is near the Southern travel, and will be easily accessible to Northern travellers. Its climate is perfect, and is destined to rival Asheville as a resort for Northerners in winter and Southern ers in summer.

Very respectfully, W. H. II. Miller THE FLOOD SUFFRERS. Immediate and Active Effort Towards their Relief. Washington, April 2C Secretary Proctor, since Congress yesterday plaeed at his disposal $150,000 for the imme diate relief of tho sufferers of the Mis sissippi river Hoods, has been exert ing himself to carry into immediate effect the wishes of Congress and at the same time not distribute tho money in a wasteful way. He to-day instructed Major Robinson, quar termaster, U. S. A., and Capt. Wes ton, commissary U. S. A., at New Or leans, La., to take immediate steps for tho relief of urgent cases and to furnish such persons with the necessary pro visions, clothing, covering, etc. Ue has also telegraphed the Governors of Ten nessee, Louisiana, Missippi and Arkan sas to designate State officials who will act in conjunction with U. S. army who will be assigned to duty in Men and women of the highest repu tation and success in our State, repre senting every department of education, will bo present to meet you aud give you their best thoughts and views in professional work. The meeting will be one cf unusual educational value, such as ambitious and progressive teachers cannot afford to lose. It will bo a time to make most pleasant and valuable acquaintances, renew and strengthen old friendships, exchange professional experiences with those who are working in lines like your own, and to get broader, deeper and more practical conceptions of popu lar education. There will be full and free presenta tion and discussion of such methods of teaching as are adapted to the peculiar conditions of our educational s stems. Teachers cannot be too strongly urged to be present who desire to become more efficient in their work; to know why the most successful members of the profes sion succeed; to secure a good school po sition or a change of location for the fall term; to gain a new iducational in spiration, or to recover from the fatigue of a school term by the unfailing influ ences of the refreshing sea breeze and the exhilaration of an ocean bath. The expenses of your trip will be ex ceedingly light a two weeks' visit to the Assembly, including round-trip rail road fare from the most distant portion of the State and first-class board at the famous Atlantic Hotel, need not cost over $25. The total average expense of attendance for the entire session, includ ing railroad fare and board, will not ex ceed $18. The professional aud social value of the meeting to a teacher will be many times greater than the slight expense of attendance. The annual fees for membership in the Teachers' Assembly are 82 for males and 1 for females. Upon payment of the fee, to the Secretary or Treasurer, a 'Certificate of Membership" will be furnished, which will entitle the holder to all special railway and hotel rates and every one of the various urivilecre of the Assembly session. large, soultui eyes, and a mischievous chin, he presents the appearance of a happy and busy Christian. His nose is plain and direct of shape as the man is of purpose. It is not long and thin, nor yet is it fleshy; it is like Mr. Jones him self, a plain every day nose with a keen scent for sin, whilst his eyes beam with tender sympathy for the sinner. He is a Preacher lor the People. There is no dress parade about Mr. Jones. Illustrating his own methods, he said that he throws his fodder on the ground so that the giraffe and the goat alike can get their fill. That's Mr. Jones all over: he's never above the people. He is down among them, elbowing sinners, and gently nudging them towards the right direction. He doesn't point, but he leads ; he preaches, but4ie preaches practice not theory. His Sly Pathos and Humor. From constant practice, his voice has grown deeper, richer, mellower. The sharper intonations of his earlier yezrs as au evangelist are gone. Never rant ing, he yet moves by the homeliness of his illustarations, by the sly pathos of his half humorous, half tearful, always soultui voice. A Pale Cast ol Thought. His face has a pallor denoting labor and confinement indoor?. In these years of labor in the vineyard of the Lord, he has thought much. There is an intel lectual protuberance above the eyes and forming with the upper lids, that gives Mr. Jones a more thoughtful appearance thuu the currency of his witticisms would lead a stranger to suspect. There is ah.) n l him that "pale cast of thought" that arrests attention, and commands iuterest. A Mighty Giant of the Gospel. At all times he is master of the plat form and audience. Never losing self con trol, apparently never self conscious, thv, migiity giant ot the gospel seems per meated more w.tu the grav-j of the gos pel, than with a consciousness of bis in telleetual sway of men. His First Sermon. His first sermon was on the text, 'Brethren, if any of you do err,11 Ac. We make a synopsis from the News: God, with all His omnipotent power is utterly .powerless to save any man with out human agency and aid. The devil with all his tchemery and cunning de vices is utterly powerless to damn any man without human agency and aid. You might ask any Christian man or woman in this audience to-day who it was that brought them toChrisi and the answer would ba a mother, brother, father, friend, minister, or mavbe a child. What can the devil do without hu- man agency; tie can trunastui-nouseor barroom. But he can get some man to run the still-house to make the whiskey, another to sell it and a fool to drink it, and then he's uot this machinery work ing right along. Every man and woman is either a co-worker with God in doing good or a co-worker with the devil all are on one side or the other. And let me say to you that the most degrading, the meanest job any man or woman ever engaged in was to co-work with the devil. It is. I want you Christian folks to co-work with us preachers and help bring Charlotte to God. You have been depending on your pastors to do all the work and run the devil out of town. No doubt they do their best, but, they have been running the devil like I once saw a dog running a hog tho dog was in front. Someting must be done, so let us get down to it. I don't want you to imagine that 1 am personal in any remarks 1 may make. I am never personal in anything I say. I just "hew to the line" you know, and if you get your head chopped off, or lose a foot or toe it ain't because I am personal at night and morning, visited the sick and been working for - God and the right when he goes into church he can wear a smile a mile broad. But let a ! fellow rob an old widow woman, never pray with his family, cheat and do meanness generally and when he goes to church he 11 look powerful solemn. If anything makes me sick it is to see a preacher vomiting out tombstones with out any inscriptions on 'em. I don't know what pretentions you people make to elegance and culture, but I'll tell you how I first heard of North Carolina: Some years ago I saw an old man driv ing a yoke of oxen to a covered wagon with a half starved dog following along under the wagon. I asked him where ho was from and he said: "North Car olina, Buncombe county, Tare river." When I go away from here I don't in tend to ask you for a certificate of good behavior. In the first place I don't want it. and in the second place I don't think it would do me any good. If you would give me one and rdpullitoutathousicd miles from here the people would say they never heard of such a place as Charlotte, North Carolina. So you see it would do me no good. My success here will depend on the manner in which you Christian people co-operate with me in these meetings. I want your help, your co-operation. I understand most of the pastors haye already joined in, and I'm mighty glad of that. But of course there are always some who wont co-operate can't agree. That's perfectly natural, and I don't fall out with any oody for that. If you see me dipping down in grammar you needn't go off and say Sam Jones is an ignoramus for I ain't. I am just trying to get down on a level with my crowd. I always put the fodder on the ground and then it can be reached by a giraffe or a goat. You hear everybody talking now about "going to hear Sam Jones." That's the way all talk for the first day or two then they change aud say "Go ing to meeting." Some old fellows say they are going every time. Others say they ain't going at all.If you meet any of this last named sort tell them that 1 say for them to please do come; that I don't see how in this world we can run the meetings without 'em, Now I want you Christian people to get down to work and help save souls. Some of you have been church members for twenty years and have never saved a single soul. A young lady told me once that she had a dream that aroused her. She dreamed that she died and her spirit went home to God and to heaven. While iu that great throng of heavenly spirits she noticed that every spirit had upon their head a crown and their crowns were bedecked with shining stars. "What do these stars mean?" she asked and was told that every star represented a soul that the spirit wearing it had won to Christ on earth. Then she took off her own crown and looked and it was starless, and right there inheaven she became miserable. When she awoke and found -it was all a dream, she thanked God and went to, work to win stars for her crown. You can talk about your celebrations and fairs and they are all right when properly managed, but let me tell you the biggest day Charlotte ever witnessed will be when we all join hands in bring ing the town to God and save tho people from death and hell ! Some of you peo ple will go on and say you agree with me in what I say but don't like the way I say it. Why, bless your soul ! the N. CAROLINA IN NEW YORK. THERE ARE TIIRFF! Tll?nnrn THOUSAND SOUTHERNERS IN tiOTHAM. Rev. Thomas Dixon, Jr., Hiniselt One of the Brightest aud Biggest, Tells What Some North Carolinians Are Doing in the Metropolis. ISnecial Cor. State Cfironu'le. New York, April 25. I have been promising for six months a letter. 1 will give it this morning, if I have to strain a point. I thought I had been a busy man before moving to New Y'ork; but since coming here I know what it is, I think, to be busy. I promise myself to do a thing, and find, six months later, that it had slipped my memory for that short space of time. There are thousands of Southern peo ple in New York city. There is no city in the north in which there are so many Southerners. There are perhaps nearly three hundred thousand Southern peo ple in New Y'ork city. North Carolina has her share. I can only mention in this letter three or four names, reserving others for a future letter. CHARLES F. DEEJIS. In thinking of North Carolina in New ork, the first name that naturally oc curs to us is that of Dr. Deems. He is a man of national reputation, a man of in ternational reputation. He is a scholar and an orator. His iniluence in New York is wide-spread and wholesome. He is one of the New Y'ork cslebreties. As President of the Institute of Christian Philosophy, his iniluence is ever broad ening, lie is the author of several very successful books, a voluminous and suc cessful writer. It is curious to remember the success the nftifprs. connection with affording relief to the Friends of education, upon recommen peoplo in tho afflicted districts contig- dation of county superintendents, are nous to the Mississippi river. permitted to attend the Assembly on same terms as teacners. The various railroads of the State have made specially for the Assembly a very liberal rate of about one and a half cents a mile each way. Tickets are good to return any time within six weeks, and permit stopping over on the return trip. The great Atlantic hotel gives first class accommodations to all who hold certificates of membership at a uniform rate of only $1 per day. The boatmeu make reductions for sailing and fishing parties so that these delights may be constantly participated in by all It will be necessary to show your cer tificate of membership to the railroad agent at your station when purchasing the teachers' ticket to Moaehead City. Bo sure that your baggage is checked through to Morehead City. The sec retary will furnish special labels for it upon application. A cordial invitation is extended to teachers and friends of education of other States to visit the Assembly and MURDERED FOR WHAT? A Nfro Kills a White Mantor no Known Motive or Reason. By United Press.! AttiUSTA, Ga., April 26. While John Nash was sitting in his store at McAr thur, Ga., on Thursday evening, a negro entered the store and asked him to step outside as he wanted to speak to him. Mr. Nash went out. As he did not re turn his partner went in search of him, and found him on the road dead with his head almost severed from his body. No one knows who the negro is or anything of the motive for the murder. way l "say ii" is an i nave a patent right on. I say it so it will stick. Now you church people that wron't co-operate with us, and want to shoot on your mouth about the meeting, just keep your carcass out from under this build ing.

Now if a fellow's down there, he'll come cut. And I have seen 'em come out chck full of shot and then swenr they hadn't been in the hole. I never preach on regeneration. That h the divine side and I let God take care of it. I always preach on tho human side and it takes all tue sense I've got to handle it. I have understood that you folks claim Charlotte to be a "peculiar town." Now it's all false at the bottom. I ex pect you've got just the same meanness and muleheadedness here as they have at other places. One thing certain; I ain't going to put on any airs while I am here. I am going to preach just as I can; say just what I please, go where I please, and I ain't eroiner a way until I please, too. Some of you folks may not like my style and want to drum me out of town, but I've got the drums and won't loan 'em, and if you fool with me I'll drum you out. You may think think there's too much levity in my ser mons, but if you will take my joks home with you and crack 'em you will find a hornet in every one of them. But my! you don't need solemn preaching to save this town. If solemn preaching would save it, Charlotte would have wings right now. Why you've got some preachers here that when you meet them you think you run right on a burial ser vice. Let me tell yon; when a fellow has paid his debts, prayed with his family ship Line and Mrs. Thorpe, a youug and highly respectable widow were married on Thursday under very strange circum stances. Mrs. Thorpe says that they were out riding in a carriage when Hub by proposed marriage and was refused. He immediately became greatly excited, and drew a pistol and threatened to kill her if she did not consent. Overwhelmed by his threats she consented. He told her that ho would shoot her down at the altar if she did not keep her promise. They then drove to Hubby's residence. An Episco palian minister was called in and the mnrriage ceremony was pertormed. The minister says that the lady made all the responses but fainted away when the ceremony was finished. She after ward managed to escape from the house and fled to the Egmont Hotel and in formed her parents, Mr. and Mrs. Col. E. B. Brink, of what had happened. Col. Brink threatens summary vengeance on Hubby. Mrs. Thorpe remains with her parents at the hotel. Mr. Hubby makes no explanation. DURHAM DOTS. Sale of a Factcrv Personal and So cial.

To my amazement, I found there were only twelve or thirteen people in the audi ence. I cculd not but recall tho old saying, that "A prophet is not without honor, save in his own country." The Doctor laughingly took in the situation, anu aujourned tao meeting to some oth er day. . it seems somehow necessary for a man to leave home, in order to become the highest of which he is capable. Henrv IIOJ 1 II. . . ai. oiamey, me man wnose name is now on the lips of the world, kings, princes, and common people, alike doing him honor, when he was in America some years ago, was sometimes greeted with au audience as hmall as seven. Dr. Deems reflects great honor upon his native state aud church. He is a broad gauged man, built on a broad pattern. thinks big thoughts and lives them in his life. What a pity it is that thero is no career for such a man, or there has not been, as yet, at least, in North Carolina. One reason, of course, is that North Carolina is a rural state, has no cities while the field for modern genius mus inevitably be the city. It is useless, for tins reason, tor us to eneve over tho de parture of such men. The development of the modern city is a development of the country. It is the highest work of the civilization of the age, destined to mightier influence in the future than it has ever had in the past. Such mpn will inevitably find their home in these centers. WALTER II. PAtiE. The man I see most of perhaps is your old f riend,the founder of t he Chron icle, Mr. Pago. He is now the manager of the Forum. His office is not far from my church, only across Madison Square, two blocks up Fifth avenue, and I man age to drop in to see mm every tew days. He is a busy man, on whose shoulders now rests the entira business of this great magazine. He keeps a half doz3n clerks and stenographers busy at the work. The magazine has shown the touch of his talent since he took hold of its management. The volume of itsbus ness has vastly increased. Its advertis ing patronage increased without prece dent. The dividends to the stockhol der have increased accordingly. Mr. Page has good reason to be proud of what he has achieved, thu? far in this short time. The Forum is the strongest magazine published in New York of it3 character, stronger than the North American Review, or than any others that compete in this field. The position he occupies is one of importance and of honor. Mr. Page is a member of the Southern Society and of the New York Reform Club. In the latter, he takes considerable interest. His influence is being felt as a practical power in Amer ican political life. As a writer, hi3 ar ticles are eagerly sought by the metro politan press and well paid for. We have, in Mr. Page, another illustration of what a man can do away from home, that could not be done at home. The reason for this is very simple. There was no field in North Carolina for such a man, at the time he undertook his work. The great city, with its rush and roar and busy life, could furnish the only field for the capacity and peculiar genius of such a man. Such men find their place as easily as the water finds its level, if they only make up their mind that they will not rest content with any thing short of the highest things they may attain. It is laughable, when I re flect upon the estimate that some good friends put upon Page while in Raleigh. I remember I heard it said by several, that he was visionary, not practical he did not have practical business talent a good fellow; but lacked business fore sight, business tact a good writer, good thinker: but could not succeed from' a business point of view. Y'et he has suc ceeded in the most difficult kind of busi ness, in the most difficult field on the American continent. These talents he undoubtedly poss?ssed, while he was at hrme. It was not a question of talent; it was a question of opportunity. We are proud that he is a North Carolinian. His life is before him, not behind him, and you will hear more of him in future than you have in the p tr. DR. J. H. PARKER. The President of the New York Cotton Exchange is a North Carolinian, Dr. Parker, who hails from the town of Wil son. He is not an old man, though get ting a little bald. He is a conspicuous example of a successful business man. He worked his way up from small thinga to the front rank. He is a man of fine business talent, a man cf wide iniluence m the business world, a man of brains and capacity. He has a home tin in the aristocratic quarter Murray Hill a home that is a poem in furniture, car pets and frescoes, and his charming wife, who is also a Southern woman, makes you feel at homo when you go there. How much he is worth I do not know but his fortune is well established. He and his family, although not Baptists, attend our church pretty regularly. JAMES W.

Ho hi been there, now, five years, and is doing a good business. That a young lawyer should be able to make his bie.i l -av.a meat, within five years after settling on vv all street, is phenomenal There aro ten thousand vouncr 1 York city who are now working far nothing, with the hone of to pay board at a second class boardiuir house, at the end of an apprenticeship of from three to four vears. Thev aru graduates of Harvard, Yale, Princeton, Cornell, Columbia and all the great col leges of America. There are two or three of these young colh-go graduates iu the office of Shcpard & Osborne now, who are working away with might and main, in the hope of making enough to pay board within three or four years. There is no field perhaps iu the city in which there is such tremendous pressure as that of law, no field in which success is so hard to achieve. Unless a young man has a fund at home from which to draw, and does not want to statve, ho better not venture into New York as a lawyer. In view of these facts, Osborne's success is a conspicuous one. But ho comes of a family of lawyers. His brother Frank, of Charlotte, is to my mind one of the sharpest lawyers I have ever known, North South, East or West. I should like to see him pitted against Colonel Ingersoll in a jury trial in New York. He is one of the few men I know who could, to my mind, success fully stem the torrent of bunccmbe, of sarcasm, of invective, of pathos and of humor, that Ingersoll hurls at a jury. Frank Osborne could do it, I think, with a great deal better success than the thousand and one lawyers who try it. I think Jim Osborne is going to make a lawyer of equal power and as great or greater success in his work than Frank. It will take him longer to do it in New York; but when it is done, success will means ten times more. DR. Wr. B. PRITCHARD. Within about four years, Will Pritch ard has achieved in New York city a permanent and lucrative practice as a physician. Thi3 is a remarkable fact. He has made a living from tho first, which i3 more remarkable still. New York turns out doctors by tho score and by the hundred, ev ery year. It is the headquar ters for the doctor. Success is hard to achieve. Young doctors toil for years, in the hope of barely making both ends meet. Pritchard Las had a lucrative practice now for over two years. This winter he ha3 dono more than ever be fore. It has been a busy year, and ho has been worked almost to death; has had to take a brief vacation, recently, to recuperate. It amuses me, when I look back at our college life that wo spent together, and think of Will's waywardness and tho natural perversity of his methods of study and work, and think now of tho seriousness with which he grapples with the difficulties of Lis work, and the real progress that he is making as a student and practitioner. We cannot always tell by what a man does at college what he will do in life. Will had a good time, when he was at college, and refused to be hampered by the inconveniences of hard work; but lie is now one of the hardest workers you can find, happy in tho love of his little wife whom ho took from her Lome in North Carolina. He has only begun his career, and we trust and believe that the future holds great things for him, and that ho will reflect great honor upon his father and loved ones and his native state. He lives at No. 3 j5 West 58th St. His kitchen is presided over by a native of North Caro lina, who is just opening her eyes to the marvels of metropolitan life. Like all Southern people, who come North, he still clings to the negro and prefers their help to any other. When you come to New York, drop in to see him. He will be glad to chat with you; that is, unless you are like some who call, who want to raise funds to get back home. My advice and his advice, to all who come to such a place as New York, is to see to it, above all things, that somewhere stowed away in the pocket there is enough money to buy a return ticket.
