Ashevillo is to have a dispensary election April 0th, and the campaign is already on. It will be warm enough. At McAdenvillo, X. C, near Char lotte. Sunday morning, the sate of the AIcAden Cotton Mills was robbed of $1,S00 to $2,000. The Legislature has renewed the rural free library law, so as to allow six new and six supplementary li braries, the supplementary one to be based upon those provided for and establish two years ago, live hundred of each being allowed. There are now S0 libraries which the State has aided and lit) sunnlementary ones, the latter being basil upon the acts of U01. Over 100 libraries were pri vately established so that the number is over 1.000 in all. In 1003 $140,405.47, and in 1004 $170,08 1.150 were spent for building and repairing school-houses, making a total of '$310,570.80 for the .two years for these purposes. The total spent for these purposes during the preceding two years was $145,751.S3, showing an increase of $103,825.03. In other words, the expenditures for new school-houses and for improving and enlarging old ones during the past two years are more than double those for the same purposes during the preceding two years. Raleigh Cor. Charlotte Observer: The sales of commercial fertilizers continues to fall off as compared with last season at this time, showing the very sharp reduction in the pro posed acreage of cotton, though it must be taken into account that the weather, up to within a very few days, has been so bad that farmers could handle very little fertilizers. The farmers are almost unanimous in declaring that they will reduce acreage. Those of them who are sell ing cotton now are not the ones who have signed the agreement or pledge to hold. Poth the cotton dealers and the farmers say these pledges arc be in very well kept indeed.
