Col. Bennett H. Xptliig, who recently travelled through your State (N. C.) in at tendance upon the commencement jxercisea of Davidson College, says here will be at least 25,000 people aere from North Carolina alone." "How about accommodating so manyguests ?" Kibv there will be no trouble about that. Five large new hotels have been built, and several others have been enlarged so as to almo3t double their capacity . That matter is all in the bands of a special committee, and they have systematized the mat ter so tlrat there will be no trouble in connection with it whatever." "What inducements have the Railroad men offered to get the peo ple to come ?" "They have been very generous. f bey have reduced the fare on all roads in the South, east of the Mis sissippi, to one and one half cents per mile, and ou Northern roads the round trip is offered at one and one third the regular fare. Arrangements are now pending for the x Southwest It's about 650 miles from the centre of your State (N. C.,) isn't it ? Well, people can come and go back home make the round trip for $19.50. That's little enough, isn't it ?" "Well, I should stutter. But what are you going to do to interest them after they get here ?" "They'll find enough in the Expo sition ; but if that doesn't, there will be no lack of amusement.

Well, I have an appointment to meet the Machinery Committee at 1 1 o'clock I'll have to leave you," and the Judge walked off, leaving your correspondent as tonished at the magnitude of the proportions which the Exposition has assumed.; How many of the 25,000 North Carolinians will be from among the readers of The Commonwealth ? 'V P " Saved By a Stocking. A TRUE STORY. "Father will hav done the chimney to night, won't he mother ?" said lit tie Tom Howard, as he stood waiting lor his father's breakfast, which he carried to - him at " his work" every morning.-' , "He said he hoped all the scaffold ing would be down to-night," answer ed Lis mother, "and that will be a fine sight ; for I never like the ending of those great chimneys, it's so risky. Thy father is to be the last up." "Eh, then I'll go and see him, and help 'em to give a shout afore he comes down," said Tom. "And then," continued his mother, "if all goes right, we are to have a frolic to-morrow, and take our dinners and spend the day amongst the woods." "Hurrah !" cried Tom, as he ran off to his place of work with a can of milk in one hand and some bread and butter in the other. His mother stood in the door watching him as he went whistling down the street ; and then she thought of the dear father he was going to,and the dangerous work he was engaged in, and then her heart found its sure refuge, and she prayed God to protect and bless her dear treasures. Tom with a light bart pursued his way to his father, leaving his break fast went to his own work, which was 6ome distance. In the evening, on bis way home, he went around to see how his lather was getting on. James Howard, the father, and a number of other workingmen, had been building one of those great chimneys which, in manufacturing towns, almost supply the place of all other architectural beauty. This chimney was one of the highest and most taperiog that had ever been erected: and iom. shading his eves from the rHys of the 8iantin sun, looked ud to the toD in search of his fathe his heart 8ank within him at the appalling height. The scaffolding was aimost down. The men at the bottom were removing the last beams and les Tom,8 falher 8tood alone on lhe top He looked all arouad to see tnat everything was right; and then waving hia hat in the air, the men below answered him with a long, , d h Httle Xom shouting as heartily as any of them. As their voices died away, however, they heard a different sound a cry of alarm and horror from above "The rope i" .The men looked around, and coiled upon the ground lay the rope, which before the scaftolding was removed should have been fastened to the chimnev for Tom's father to come -rQe scaffold had been taken down ith t th i rememberin2 to take the rope up There was a dead 8ilence Tla 0iibaw imnnoaihla t.n throw the rope lush enough to reach Lhe cf the chimnev, or if they could it would hardly have been safe.

She was always busily employed for her husband or children in some way or ... t.dav he had been hard er at work than usual, getting ready for the holiday to-morrow. She had just finished her prepara tions, and her thoughts were silently thanking God for her happy home and for all the blessings of life.when Tom ran in. His face was,white as ashes, and he could hardly - get the words out ir 1f.'i I' "Mother! mother! he cannot get down!" . -Who, lad ? Ttiy father f'l asked his mother, .i s . ; . - : "They've fforgoiten lo'. leave him the rope," answered Toai, still scarce ly able to speak; - . Hismother'started np horor-struck and stood a moment as if paralysed . Then, pressing - hier liands ; over her face, as if to ahnt oat the horrible picture, and breathing a prayer to Clnd for helrj- she rushed bill of the "V - -Mh house. . jV. -t.. - j When she reached the' place where - her husbnnd was at Work, a crowd j had collected around the foot of the I chimnev. and stood there with faces full of sorrow. "He savs he will throw himself . ; down," exclaimed tlHy. as Mrs. How ard came up. v "He in going to throw ' himself down.,' ' "Thee mnnna do that, lad?" cried the wife, with a clear, hopeful voice. Thee munna do that. Wait a bit- ake off thy stocking, lad, and un ravel it, and let down the thread with bit of mortar. Dost hear me, Jem?" The man gave a sign of assent, for seemed as though he could not speak, and taking off his stocking, unraveled the worsted thread, row after row. The people stood around in breathless silence and suspense, vondering what Tom's mother could be thinking of, and why she sent him in such haste for the carpenter's ball of twine. 'Let down one end of the thread with a bit of mortnr, and keep fast hold of the other," cried she to her husband. The little thread came waving down the tall chimney, blown hither and thither by the wind ; but at last it reached the outstretched hands that were waiting for it. Tom held the ball of. twine, while his mother tied one end of it to the worsted thread. "Now pull it up slowly," cried she to her husband ; and she gradually unwound the string as the worsted gently drew it up. It stopped, the string had reached her husband. "Now hold the string fast and pull it up," cried she, and the string grew j heavy and hard to pull ; for Tom and j his mother had fastened the thick rope to it. They .watched watched it gradually and slowly uncoiling from the ground as the string was drawn higher. There was but one coil left. It had reached the top. "Thank God! Thank God!" ex claimed the wife. . She hid her face in silent prayer, and tremblingly rejoiced. The rope was up. The iron to which it should be fastened was there all right ; but would her husband be able to make use of them ? Would not the terror 3f the hour have so unnerved him as to prevent his taking the necessary measures for his safety ? She did not see the magic influence which her few words had exercised over bim. She did not know the strength that the sound of her voice, so calm and steadfast, had filled him witli as if the little thread that carried him the rope-of life once more had. conveyed to him some portion of that faith in God which nothing ever destroyed or shook in her true heart. There was a great shout. "He's safe, mother, he's safe!" cried little Tom. "Thou hast saved me, Mary," said her husband, folding her in his arms "But what ails thee? Thou seem'st more sorrv than glad about it." But Mary could not speak, and if the strong arms of her husband had not held her up, she would have fal len to the ground. The sudden" joy, after such great tear, had overcome I her. " "Tom." said the father, "let thy mother lean upon thy shoiilder, and we will take her home." And in their happy home they poured forth their thanks to God for his great goodness, and their happy life together felt dearer and holier for the peril that it had been in, and for the nearness that the danger had brought them unto God. And the holiday next day was it not iudeed a thanksgiving day ? The Examin er. . PROJECTS OF WOMANHOOD. ; We observe a statement in a late number of The Nation (New York). that "women householders have every vote in Great Britain,, and . Ireland, except the Parliamentary Iranchise, which, by the by they did originally possess. The agitation to regain this right is everywhere allowed to be in creasing,, and meetings grow more and more earnest every year. In local elections the proportion of women voters names on the reg isters is usu ally as high as among men. Women aira poor law- guar diaiis and as members of school luUrriaL So hicrhlv are their-services appreciated and' so ju liciously have! L canlidate be chosen.' that j few fail of election while their re-j this ua been changed by the Penn election is practically certain." It isj sylvaniati discovery. Now all classes ,fof,i th.t .fho.immoo ladies-prominent in the; movement" are speoially "striking by-tbabeauty of their family life." Such represen tations have been so uniform that we take it for granted they are facts uni versally acknowledged, and, if so, it would seem to be time for some per sons amongst us to wake up suffi ciently at least to suspect the wisdom of their opinions as to the woman's movement. As to the political status of women in America, we have no disposition to enter into the contro versy. In our judgment, it stands apart from the real question at issue, and may be left to time for adjudica tion. What we do contend for is, that inside of this particutar discus sion as to political privileges a very broad space is open, clearly open, and that it is the interest of every man, not to hinder, but to help our women to occupy it to the full, and secure all its advantages. No excuse exists for any other opinion than a favorable one on the point we have specified. Women have won their way to recognition as teach ers, editors, writers, managers of business, conductors of large enter prises ; and they continue to work on official positions, no less than in art and science, to the approval and even the admiration of all unbiased obser vers of their progress. Assuredly it is high time to accept these facts, on less stupidity be a virtue, and if such be the case, the old debate as to woman's fitness for higher occupa tions and a fail share of their immu nities and benefits might be properly remanded to antiquarian solitude Dead issues, however, are very fasci nating to certain minds, owing per chance to'the sympathy of their own deadness. Such people are peculiar ly insensible to public opiuion and its endorsement of anything, and their joy is "What care I how lair she be, So she be not fair for me.' And, furthermore,in this self-secured progress of womanhood, we have learned that every interest of busi ness, society, religion, she has touch ed has taken new life and purity and worth from her contact. This is per fectly certain. And, hence, it would seem reasonable to infer that contin ued advancement on her part would be a continued gain. On most sub jects this reasoning would be valid, nor can. we doubt that it would be admitted in the present instance if all our brains were large enough to accommodate a little of the present and the future as well as the much idolized past. This sort of logic in acknowledg ment of the vindicated claims of our new womanhood to sympathy and honor, would appear to be all the more rational since the progress it self has been singularly free from every sort of foil- and extravagance to any extent obnoxious to criticism. A few of the "strong-mindecr' have shown an extra amount of antago nism, but the great majority of the progressive women have been marvel ously quiet, modest, and lady-like io the whole affair. Bojd women are impossible on any considerable scale. Nature forbids that, since Nature has given boldness as a monopoly to men.. Our women have displayed courage, and courage is always the ally of beauty and delicate sensibili ties Courage never hardens. Cour age never lowers aims andaspirations. Courage is no brawler, and still less a bully. And, accordingly, our wo men have exhibited, in this matter one of their finest qualities, viz : the rejectinq instinct of tJieir nature, by which, under all circumstances of en litrlitriimeut and culture, they refuse "tS the coarser elements abounding in common life, while assimilating the better and the best. Ex. PETROLEUM. The oil production of the United States is full or interest to every householder. The discovery of petro leum in Pennsylvania some twenty three years sinca has worked a wonder ful change for the people. Prior to that time .the well-to-do burned refined sperm oil, the product of the whale.

EvrandaiLI- is this one, dcax." . . home can have its bright light and the student is allured to read books , by the soft light that falls upon the page. If kerosene light is not as cheap as sunlight it is next to it at present. The light of the future has not yet been perfected, but we may expect that before many years there will be light in the dwelling that will outrival in cheapness, safety and brilliancy our present light, as far as our best refined oils now surpass the tallow candles of war times when the writer was glad to get them at $10 a pound. At present the civilized world is interested very greatl y in the produc tion of petroleum. If the wells were to cease to flow the price of oil would go up at a tremendous bound and in a little while we should have to fall back upon the poor lights of a quar ter of a century ago. At present the production of petroleum is as great as it has ever been. Whilst thous ands of wells have become exhausted there are at present 20,000 in opera tion. No one can pretend to say how long the supply will keep up. Thus far the discovery of new supplies has mor than kept up with the exhaus tion. .There are sections in the oil region where there is now scarcely a vestige of it left. The production of petroleum in 1882 was greater than ever before, and amounted to 31,898,750 barrels. The production in 1881 was very great but some less than it was in 1883. Of the 20,000 wells, 13,000 are in the Bradford district in Penn sylvania. The oil region is mainly in Pennsylvania, but it extends a lit tle way into Southern New York. There is some oil obtained in Ohio and in West Virginia, and some in Europe, but the whole from these sources amounts to little when com pared with the production of Penn sylvania. The oil region is about 150 miles in length and from 1 to 20 miles in width, and covers about 1 80, 000 acres. It is not to be understood that petroleum is to be found through out this region. It is only found here and there at intervals, and sometimes at long intervals. In fact the oil sec tion covers but a small part of the area embraced within the limits given above. Until the "coming light" is in our possession we are all concern ed in the productiveness of the Penn sylvanian oil region. When a barrel of the crude fetches $1 then the oil men are' happy. It sometimes falls to 50 cents, and then there' are long faces in the oil region. Morning Star. OUR TEACHERS. The following handsome tribute to our teachers is an extract from a. . speech on June ith, by Rev. J. S. Watkins, .of Raleigh, in presenting Bibles to the young ladies graduating from Peace Institute: One of the greatest blessings to society is a faithful, successful teach er. Tlui.se who are charged, with the mental ' and moral training of tne young occupy a position of great re sponsibility. There is no secular profession more important than that of teacher. There is no calling which in the end yields a greater or more glorious reward. There are. other callings attended by more showy and glittering honors, but noue so neb in solid and permanent results. Our country owes as much to the teachers who have trained her youth and in spired them with ri -ltt sentiments, as to her atntussnen hu have direct ed the uffairs of the government. Manv of the emineut men owe their -oreatness to those who trained their minds and heart in early years. 1 he future interests of the church and of the country, depend upon the rising ; generation. The teachers who ,'iave tUem in hand, therefore, have much to do in determining the mental and moral status : of society. The labo rious, patient, faithful teacher is a very important factor in the eiviliza- tion and elevation of t he race, and is entit led t a larger measure of praise and estvem."
