The cornerstone of the Moravian
chapel at Centerville, was laid last Sun
day week.
Prof. Mclver leaves this week for
Raleigh to enter upon his duties at Peacfe
Institute.
Bishop Lyman will hold services in
St. Paul's church in Winston Sunday,
September 12th, and at Walnut Cove the
Tuesday following. ,
The Twin-City Daily now makes its
regular daily appearance, double its for
mer size and very much improved. Mr.
Snider is showing much energy and a
perseverance that is worthy of success.
Married. In Salem, at Mr. C. S.
Hampton's, Mr. M. L. Parker and Miss
Nannie J. Shelton. Also, Mr. J. B. O.
Briant and Miss Sallie A. Parker, August
26th, by Rev. E.P. Parker. All of Salem.
Mr. A. I. Butner, County Superin
tendent of schools, will be at the Court
House in Winston Thursday, Friday and
Saturday, 9th, 10th and 11th of Septem
ber, to examine teachers for the public
schools. Saturday will be devoted to
colored applicants.
Big Breaks. Last Wednesday was a
big break day in our tobacco warehouses.
At Brown's it was an all-day business,
and 68,599 pounds were knocked down
to purchasers before the floors were
cleared. It was the biggest day's work of
the season.
The shade trees along the streets in
Winston and Salem, and the fruit trees
in the lots, are festooned with caterpillar
webs, some trees being almost covered
with them, while the caterpillars may be
seen crawling in all directions actively
engaged in foraging. There's myriads of
'em.
The Ways op the New South. She
stood at the door as black as night, await
ing an answer to her rap on the door. The
mistress of the house appeared, when the
sable lady said: "Pa called to know if
you is the 'oman what wants to hire a
lady to do sum washin'." A thunder
ing slam of the door was the answer.
The Republican Judicial Convention
of the 9th district, and Congressional
Convention of the 5th district, will meet
in Winston on the 7th of September. We
are requested to state that reduced rates
have been secured for delegates on all
the roads.
Mr. R. L. Cox, our excellent County
Treasurer, made this year 660 bushels of
wheat. In reply to an inquiry he said
he thought the wheat would yield him a
moderate profit, "but," said he, "I ex
pect to get my profit from my crop of
clover. I manured the ground and
seeded it all to clover, and got a good
catch." This is the great crop for this sec
tion. When the tobacco craze shall have
subsided, and our people shall give in
telligent attention to grass and clover
and stock, then will the Piedmont section
'bloom and blossom" with genuine pros
perity. BUILDIXC, AND LOAX ASSOCIATIONS.
The Building and Loan Associations of
Charlotte have lent $200,000 to citizens
of that place, which money has been in
vested in erecting houses for the bor
rowers, thus not only benefitting them
individually, but contributing greatly to
the wealth and prosperity of that goahead
and thriving little city. There are build
ing and loan associations in Greensboro,
Raleigh, Wilmington and other towns in
North Carolina which have done much
toward? the growth of those places by
furnishing the means to build to deserv
ing persons who might find it difficult to
raise the means on advantageous terms
in any other way. They have unques
tionably been a great benefit where they
have been well managed, in the commu
nities where they have been established.
We have heretofore suggested the organi
tion of one in Winston, and refer to what
they are doing for Charlotte as an evi
dence of their usefulness.
A SPECIAL OFFER.

Farmer and the Patch Corn Sheller
(price $3)is offered to you for four dollars

Col. L. L. Polk: At your request I
took the Patch Corn Sheller, and Sepa
rator and tested it. I am so well satis
fied with it that I want; to keep it and
pay you for it. It is decidedly tho best
corn sheller r for the price that I have
