It is for theeauae reason that negroes are appointed to office in Eastern North Carolina. It does not "hap pen." It is done to get the negro vote and the negro is ambitious of the honor of having white men under him as he works the public roads. North Carolina Leads. Wilmington Messenger. North Carolina is the leading man ufacturing State in the Soutb and some idea may be had of the growth of the cotton mill industry when the statistics are examined. The statis tics up to August 31, 1807, show that North Carolina has 1,018,303 spindles in operation, the second largest number in the South. South Carolina has a few more spindles but North, Garolina has more mills than any other Southern State. She has 186 mills, including those under con struction, out of 491 mills in the South nearly 40 per cent of the entire factories in the South. Organ Iz- Wilmington Messenger. Again and again has the Messenger nrged the White Men to organize in every township. Let all the counties be perfectly organized.

Ueiiry Ward Beecber. Not Surprtbtpg. Raleigh News and Observer. It ought not to surprise anybody that Populists in all sections ol the State are renouncing that party. It is not because they have deserted the original princit les upon which the Populist party was organized. It, is because they see that, iuHtead of con tending for ficaucial- reform, the Populist irachinery is in th bands of the Republicans and their party is being used to strengthen the gold standard and continue corrupt and low government in North Curolina. It is a surprise that any man, not origii a'ly a K-publicai', except thorn who make money by celling out thtir principles, continues to affiliate with a party t hat here in North Carolina is controlled by the Republican party.

The New York Journal of Monday says; "The Rev. p Peyton II. Iloge, of Wilmington, N. G., whois regarded as the probable successor of the Rev. Dr. John Hall as pastor of the wealthy Fifth Avenue Presbyterian churcn, preached to the congregation of that church yesterday morning. Tne text of his sermon, which was essentially doctrinal in its character, was from Jeremiah xv., 10: 'Thy words were found and 1 do.eit them, an1 Thy word was unto uie the joy and rejoic ing of my heart, for 1 am called hy" thy name, O Lord God of Ilosta.' " If Dr. Hall is replaced, the event will be a climax ot troubles in the church which began with Dr. Hall's championship last year of Hermann Warswiak, the converted Jew, who under Dr. 1 fall's tutelage, conducted missions among Jews in this city. Dr. Hall was born in Armagh, Ire land, July 31, 1329, and was edecated at Belfast. His salary as pastor Is $15,000 a year besides the use of the tine hou-e ad joining the church. His income has been enlarged by bequests in ide in the wills of his parishioners, and it is said he received $j0,000 in marriage fees. Mr. LUiney at Boone. Boone Democrat.

Why has Mr. Linney fallen so low ii his morals? A man who has been elevated by his people, to a seat in Ooureaa ought to hate respect enough lor his ovu party even, not to engage in such low vulgarism as Mr. Linney did.

Kerr writes in a letter from Newbern to the Asheville Citi zen: "That the negroes have no other object than to get control of the government is manifested not only by their actions, but by their words as well.

In pillows used by fashionable. th: applique cushion seems to take the lead: a combination of different material well worked either in complementary tones or in tints of corresponding hues. Among the novelties blue denim is ex ceedingly attractive," a dark and lighG happily combined, the tint of pale blue appliqued on, and then worked in dif ferent shades of this color with rope floss in long and short stitch. As a fin ish there is a deep rufflo four inches wide and edged with two toued blno ribbon. The back of this pretty affair is 6imply made of plain denim un adorned. Linen of every well known 6hadfl holds a never tiling charm. This season j light green is peculiarly the favorite. It has a tender and inviting look, and if well outlined or worked iu a good strong floral ornamentation the plan is sure to be decorative and pleasing. For good tones, poppies and chrysanthemums are excellent. Bold and decided patterns of flower effects present, when completed, all the necessary elements of good cush ion making. Of course, for everyday pillows the darker linens are advisable, but when a mo-e delicate showing is needed then th pure white should be utilized, and ca.efully embroidered in conventional foris, in which flowers particularly take tbe lead. With whit linens a finish can be given of lace a raffle of deep hamburg or a plain liucy slightly gathered in form of a ruffle, tha edge prettily scalloped and in each scal lop a tiny blossom. Denims are a great resource for summer piilows, in what ever tones preferred and of ornamenta tion simple or otherwise, as desired. For the hammock nothing is better man a gooa substantial cretonne, a flowery affair in which thero is bright ness and tone, and in material which will not fade, show dirt or soil. Cre tonne pillows for this purpose are bet ter when plainly made without orna- LIGHT GREEK LINEN. mentation of any kind of medium tints, yet with an all over design in which an effective plan stands out and looks well. Serviceable pillows like the graj linen are admirable admirable not only as a fabric, but for good, steady wear and everyday use in any place where it fills a need. To mako this plan charm ing in appearance the white silk ol white linen floss can be given to thi decorative scheme, either in strong floral effects or in conventional forms, big patterns in long and short etitch, requiring but little trimming. Often for pillows, plain for use and hastily made up for the summer wear, the big bow of ribbon on one corner can bo used as the color bit desired, the selec tion made to suit the simplo furnish ings of any room. Another texture of equal quality bat thicker is the colored duck, which for coolness is unrivaled. The same treat ment either in embroidery, outlined or in long and short etit;h, can be given ; or in a good make np, devoid of all or namentation, as a useful necessity for warm weather days, says The Decorator and Furnisher, from which tho forego ing timely suggestions and illustration? are reproduced. v " Tomatoes a la Carolina.

Cook a cup and one-half of Car olina rice in a quart of well seasoned broth, with half a green pepper cut fine. When the rice is nearly tender, but not broken, add half a cap of but ter. Mix it in well, but carefully, so as not to break the rice. Fill the tomatoes with the rice. Put back the pieces of tomato cut out. Set them in a baking pan, brush over the outside w ith a lit tle olive oil or melted butter and bake for half an hour in a modevate oven.

A boy should be taught from the start that hi health is his most Tjrccious endow- tnei.t. Without health, all the talent, ajl the (fenius, and all the ambition in the world are worthless. A boy should be taught that success in any walk of life, that happiness, and life itself, are dependent upon his care of his health. When a man feels that he is losing his health and vigor, when his cheeks no long er glow, his step is no longer clastic and the sparkle of health is no longer in his eyes, he should work less, rest more and resort to the right remedy to restore his bodily vigor. Dr. Pierce's Golden Medical Discovery is a natural medicine a scientif ic medicine. It does no violence to nature. It works with and not against . nature.
