'defeat of the Hon. W. F.

Kibn& as the Populist candidate
Tor Corerees is a "complete -victory
for the Republicans and Pritchard
Populists. And it seems somewhat
strange and surprising that the
Pritchard Populists, who were in the
minority in t he last Legislature and
were then denounced as traitors,
should now be carrying everything
before-them in tha Populist party.
But is it eo surprising, when it is

speech. Did the colonel "happen to
be appointed Assistant Attorney
General? No. It was done because
he is a leading politician in his party.
It is for theeauae reason that negroes
are appointed to office in Eastern
North Carolina. It does not "hap

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.

Wilmington Messenger.
Again and again has the Messenger
nrged the White Men to organize in
every township. Let all the counties
be perfectly organized. That means
house to house work gettiDg all
who are against negro rule to unite
to save civilization, to secure good
government, to restore law and
order, to rid the whites of negro rule,
which means degradation, corrup
tion, oppression and if continued,
revolution. Organize! Organize 1 1

Reports are daily to the effect that
Populists are returning to the Dem

When it comes to the question of
white supremacy the people seem to
be all one way.

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.

H. Hoge Preaches
York City.
The New York Journal of Monday
"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.
Oa Saturday last, during the
Republican county t-onventiou, Mr.
Unney appeared and mad a char
acteristic speech ol about 40 min
utes. The best element of the
Watang Republicans and a number
of Democrats were in attendance ex
pctiug to hear our Congressman
d'seuss the issues of the coining cam
paign in a respect ful manner, but to
our disgust and a-itonisament we
were treated to the most vu'gar,
Slthy sarcasm that we ever listened
to. 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. We have heretofore
had respi ct for Mr Linney, especial
ly his talent. We have never said
ny unkind thing of him.

composed chi( fly of negroes and the

Monroe Journal.
At the speaking in Waxhaw Tus

would not waste time in trying to
jonvince th colore 1 men that he was
their friend, for it would ba a waste
of time But, he siid, that it they

Hadn't Heard of the War.
Louisville Evening Tost. ,
A party of fishermen found a man
and bis family up the Tennessee river
who had never heard of the war with
Spain. The man wouldn't believe it
until a newspaper with reports from
the battlefields was produced and
read. The poorly informed native
said his lack of information was doe
to the fact that he hadn't "bin over

" .Triinc to Get Control.
Mr. John P. 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. They openly, boldly,
poblicly and defiantly declare that
they intend to negro'za North Caro
lina." ,
dnck, cretonne and denim really being
the fabrics employed for summer wear.
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-
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?

Tomatoes a la Carolina.
Select a dozen round tomatoes of the
some size, says the Boston Cooking
School Magazine, remove a pioce about
an inch in diameter from the blossom
end of each tomato and take out all the
seeds. 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.
Remove them carefully to a platter and
pour around them a cup of tomato sauco
highly seaarnod.

health is his most

upon his care of his health.
When a man feels that he is losing his

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

It works with and not against . nature. It
promotes the natural processes of secretion
and excretion. It imparts vitality and
power to the whole system. It gives
plumpness and color to the cheeks, sparkle
to the eyes, steadiness to the nerves,
strength to the muscles and the animation

appetite keen and hearty. It is the great
blood-maker, flesh-builder and nerve-tonic
