While some hands were chop ping timber a short time ago at Tillerys. a team of mules, belonging to Mr. J. R. Fillery were driven too near a falling tree, the top of which crushed them to the ground.

On last Saturday evening John vVebb, colored, while trying to throw a aiiie open, let it slip and the blade enter ed his leg just below the knee, svering an artery and inflicting a very severe wound A physician was summoned, who rendered the necessary medical aid. and at last accounts the wounded man was doing as well aa could be expected.

One of our enterprising eountrj- friends (the one who shot the black sheep for the deer) capture 1 a i old fashioned screech owl the other day. He brought trie animal to town an 1 did his best to sell it to one of Scotland Neck's best mer chants for a parrot. He said it wa young an 1 ha 1 not learned "PoU"' yet. But the mercaant was too well up to be taken in, and so the grin was tnrael upon the gamester. We know a Metho list preacher who was severely interrupted in a sermon somewhat thusly : A drunken man en tered the church, took a seat near the stove and of course soon got sick. The preacher observed it. asid feeling rather irritated said quite audibly to a brother near by -Take that d.jg out." The good brother complied with the minister's re quest ; but just before he reached the loor, the drunken man remembering what the minister had said about him, turned back a second and retorted to the minister, It's 'nough to make any dog sick to bear you preach'" The District Conference of the Washington District M. E. Church South met at W illiamston on Thursday last. It was a harmonious and profitable session. The chief term of interest to the general public was the turning over o. the District School, located at Greenville, to the offi cial body of the Methodist church at that place, to be operated and controlled bv it. i ne preacauig generally was of a high order. Ine forcible sermon of Kev. S. V Hoyie, of Greenville, on Sunday morning is especially worthy of muntion. He kept his congregation intensely interested for more than an hour. The next session will be held at Toisnot. The closing exercises of Vine Hill Male and Female Academies will begin on June 7th, at 8 o'clock, and will continue two nights. The exercises will consist of Declamations. Recitations, and Music. The programme is varied and in teresting. On Friday night there will be a contest for the Decanter's Medal. Misses Smith and McDowell will, after the exercises of each evening, give an ice cream supper, the proceeds of which are to be appropriated to the improvement of tne emale Academy. These young ladies are untiring in their efforts to improve the school buildings and establish their school on a farm basis. We hope, therefore, that the public will favor them with their presence at the supper both for the pleas- ure oi me occasion and to aid their worthv enterprise. We have reasons to hope that the closing of the present session will not oe less interesting than it has been h. lofore. The public generally are invited, and we hope that all interested in the ed ucation of the town and communitv will tavor us witn their presence on both even ings. y,i r?

On this case, when he was sixteen vears oi l he wrote, that ..y wn trv from nOW to make, a man of myself " How tar this resolution was cat ried the history of North Car olina will tell. Thi is a striking il lustration of the adage, Where there is a will theue is a way." Durham Recorder. What My Lorer Said. One of Barton Hill's Recitations Was Horace Greeley the Author? By the merest chance, in the twilght gloom. In the orchard path, he met me In the tall, wet grass,' with its faint per fume, And I tried to pass, but he made no room. Oh ! I tried, but he would not let me. So I stood and blushed till the grass grew red. With face bent down above it. While he took my hand as he whispering said How the clover lifted each sweet pink head To listen to all that my lover said ! Oh ! the clover in bloom I love it ! In the hieh. wet zrass went the oath o a - - - o hide. And the low. wet leaves hung over, But I could not pass on either side, For I found myself, when I vainly tried, ! Ip the arms of my steadfast lover. And he held me there, and he raided my head, While he closed the path before me, And he looked down into my eyes and said How the leaves bent down from the boughs overhead To listen to all that my lover saidf Oh ! the leaves hanging lowly o'er me. Had he moved aside but a little way, . 1 could surely then have passed him, And he knew I never could wish to stay, And would not have heard what he had to say, Could I only aside have cast him. It was almost dark, and the moments sped. And the searching night-winds found us; But he drew me nearer and softly said How the pure, sweet winds grew still in stead. To listen to all that my lover said. Oh ! the whispering winds around us. I am sure he knew when he held me fast, That I must be unwilling ; For I tried to go, and I would have passed As the night was come with its dews at last. And the skv with its stars was tilling ; But he clasped me closer when I would have lied, And he made me hear his story. And his soul came out from his lips and said, How the stars crept out when the white moon led. To listen to all that my lover saidf Oh ! the moon and the stais in glory ! I know that the grass and the leaves will not tell, And I'm sure that the wind precious rver Will carry his secret so safely and well, That no being shall ever discover One word of themany that rapidly fell From the eager lips of my lover. And the moon and the stars that looked over Shall never reveal what a fairy-like speil ight They wove round about us that ni in the deli, In the path through the dew laden clover, Nor echo the whispers that made my heart swell.
