' r ; ... .. i Next Tuesday , the North Carolina Teachers' special train, running from the mountains to the sea, will arrive At Morehead City. Present indications are that this train will carry down Bix or seven hundred teachers. They will find everything ready for their reception at Morehead. The great Atlantic Hotel has never before been in such elegan preparation as it is now. For two months past, the Messrs. Foster Bros, have beenjooking after everything, and now they have the gratification to' see that absolutely nothing is wanting or lacking to make the hotel all that the most exacting guest may demand or wish for. ; ; " .. Everybody Will Eat. A knowledge of what has been done by the Atlantic Hotel management with reference to the daily table supply, car ries with it a suspicion that whoever goes there this summer will find eating one of 'the chief delights. This is not usually the-case at summer hotels; but notice these facts: ' The head cook is one whose reputation is extremely high With people who spend the summer at the greatest resorts and watering places in this country, and his assistants are trained to realize that a man, and woman, too, want their food cooked, and cooked right. The Messrs. Foster Bros, have ar ranged for lightning shipments of the choicest western beef in refrigerator cars, and nothing but the best quality of inspected meats is to be used this season. There are arrangements for daily shipments of fresh Jersey butter, packed in ice, from the piedmont ancP mountain sections of the State. The ran of big game fish at More head is nnprcdeatedthis season, and -the hotel management have officially de clared that they would include in this season's cusiue nothmg but game fUsb -such as the blue fish, mackerel, (&c. 4 -Yes, sir," said one of the management to a Chronicle man, 4 'we are deter mined that our guests shall eat the finest food that the sea products. We have arranged for an unlimited supply of soft shell crabs, and these who like them shall luxurate in them here this season." New Sulphur Springs. A new sulpbur spring has recently been found ne?r Morehead, and the citizens of the town are preparing to make it an addition to tbe already many attractions of that delightful place. The sprj is' about one mile above tbe townrarfd gushes from the ground about fifty feet irom Bogue sound on the north side. It is a delightful walk up the beach from the village to the spring. The f pring has: been : brick-walled and co rner .ted, aud a very handsome pavilion is now being built over it. A wharf is also being built near the spring and this will be oue of the delightful boat trips and fctops in the future. The Teachers' Assembly. The Teachers' Assembly building will be a delight and pride of every North Carolinian this session. Numerous educational exhibits are to be made, and in fact thev are all now about ready. , Last Saturday the express office and depot at Morehead had stored in them great piles of boxes and school furniture all for the educational exhi bit. It is all being put in position this weefc. Peace Institute and the A. and M. col lege will both have special exhibits, each occupying an entire room on the lower floor of the Assembly building. The Model School under the supervis ion of Miss Annie Burke and Miss Mary Marsh, will be in session daily and will be open for visitors at all times during session hours. Tee teachers and their friecds and everybody who shall go to Morehead this summer must enjoy the trip. Every thing is arranged that way and nobody can neip it. The Baccalaoreate Watkins' Sermon nating Class. - (Special Cor. State Chronicle.) Baccalaureate Sunday at Davidson College dawned full of sunshine and breezes. Commencement weather is proverbially hot, but if the week fulfils the promise of its opening, we can al most dispense with fans and ice cream. Saturday evening's train was crowded with visitors, and the town is already astir with the social gayety and the spirit of general hospitality and merry making which characterize commence ment week. The Baccalaureate sermon was preached by Rev. G. B. Strickler, D. D., of Atlanta, to the gradnating class in the handsome church, built five years ago in the southwest corner of the campuB. Long before the church bell rang the streets were alive with junior and senior beavers. Even the Freshmen caught the contagion, forgot for the mo ment their struggles with Newcomb and Olney, and escorted 4 'calico" to church with a zeal and pleasure born of long deprivation. The graduating class numbering 17, sat in a semi-circle just in front of the pulpit. Dr. Strickler's text was Psalms cxix-18, Open Thou mine eyes that I may behold wondrous things out of Thy law. On the pulpit platform were Rev. Chalmers Moore, class of '84, Rev. W. W. Pharr, class of '53, Dr. J. S. Wat- AN INCREASE OF ACREAGE NEARLY EVERY STATE. IN Fair Prices Stimulating the Planting The Efieot of the Floods and Over flows in Some StatesThe Crop Blooming in the Far South. t By United Press.1 Washington, June 10. The statisti cal returns for June to the department of agriculture show an increase of acre age in cotton in nearly every State. The area, as compared with acreage of 1889, is reported in this preliminary investiga tion as follows: Virginia, 98: North Carolina, 102: South Carolina, 103; Georgia, 102; Flor: ida, 103; Alabama, 102; Mississippi, 102; Louisiana, 95; Texas, 105; Arkansas, 99; Tennessee, 100; average, 102; average condition, 88.8. The percentage of Virginia is 90; North Carolina, 98; 8outh Carolina, 97; Georgia, 94; Florida, 92; Alabama, 93; Mississippi, 85; Louisiana, 84; Texas, 84; Arkansas, 85; Tennes see, 87. The fair, price prevailing with low prices for other products stimulates the extension of planting. The over flows in Arkansas and Louisiana delayed planting in those States and prevented the increase which otherwise would have been made. There are locations where kins, of Raleigh, and the pastor, Rev. R. replanting to perfect stands injured by d. uampoeii Dr. 8trickler is a man of striking appearance and decided oratori cal power, and a clear and forcible thinker. His address on the 4 4 Wonders of the Law" was a most powerful and im pressive strmon, . and for an hour held the close attention of a crowded house. His closing appeal to educated young men to value, revere, and teach to oth ers the Word of God was peculiarly ef fectivo At night Dr. J. S. Watkins, of Ral eigh, delivered the annual sermon be fore the Young Men's Christian Associa tion. Dr. Watkins' text was a double one 1 John, ii:14: 441 have written unto you, young men, because ye are strong;" and Phil., iv:13: 44I can do all things through Christ, which strengthened me." The sermon was peculiarly suitable to the occasion and the audience. He dis cussed tne naturalness ana ngat or a love of power, its perils and limitations, the benefits of a sanctified ambition, tbe comparative valne and dignity of different kinds of power; the source of fKa Vttfvliaat f oil fTma rf nAnOf 1 a moral and spiritual, found in Christ; the elements of Christian power, faith, single ness of aim, enthusiasm and prayer; the great need, of rightly used pow.kr irf our social, political, civil and religious world to day. It was an inspiring and eloquent address, a good example of power of a high order consecrated to a noble pur pose. rrof. Maclean, the director of the Charlotte Music Festival, has been here practising the Davidson College chorus for their part in the exercises of the 13th and 14th. Pi of. Maclean is one of the class of '82 and feel3 at home in our Davidson parlors. He seems highly pleased with the preparation and ability of the chorus. Lois. cold nights is still continued, and will be, m extreme cases, to' the 15 th of J une. Stands are generally very good in the Carolinas with exceptions in low areas where frost or cool nights have destroyed plants. - In the Mississippi valley and in Texas heavy rains and lo cal floods and inundations have caused an unusual amount of re planting and oh the Mississippi and other great rivers delay of planting un til the waters recede. In such cases the seed has been dropped in the mud and the plants have appeared promptly, some times in four days from planting. Ex cept on the Atlantic coast the excess of ram has retarded chopping out and cul tivation, leaving the crop somewhat grassy, thongh recent fine weather has done much to secure clean cultivation. In more southern latitudes the plants are beginning to bloom. While the en tire breadth as a rule is late, the plants are healthy and growing rapidly. M LOTTERY GAINING GROUND.

Resolved. That we mourn with them in their bereavement aad tender them the sympathy that emanates from hearts which beat in unison with our 44lost n cause. Resolved, That whilst subordination necessarily is the duty that devolves up on the greater part of mankind, yet he is not less worthy of the gratitude of the people of his native State because not called on to do more, and that his mem ory, as a private soldier, is as worthy of veneration as that of him who led her armies in battle or her counoils in peace.
