ELM CITY NOTES.
Ed's. Times: We were pleased to receive a copy of The Wilson Times and noted -with pleasure the excellency of the first issue. We are glad The Times affords us a paper so clean and creditable. We wish for the child (of the press) an early growth to vigorous manhood, wise in small thines. but above all truthful. As an introduction, Mr. Editor, we will first say we are all well. We claim a health record surpassed by no town in Eastern North Carolina. Not withstanding our geographical location and local environments I think in point of health, if not in picturesqueness we could compare sheets favorably with most excellent Brevard of Wes tern N. C. We noted in your former issue the death of Mr. A. W. Rowland, formerly of Wilson. The writer knew him well and wishes to attest his high regard of his many noble traits of character. He was a manly, courteous, courageous gentleman, and in his death humanity lias lost a generous friend and his as sociates the comradeship of a noble character and the impress of a worthy life. Yesterday was pleasant and spring like, but today the weather is cold, and drifting snowflakes promise a heavy snow. Mr. and Mrs. Ed Travis of Halifax are here on a visit to Prof, and Mrs. J. W. Hays. Miss Gussie Britt of Rocky Mount is visiting her sister Mrs. E. G. Williams. Mrs. Bell Haynes of Tarboro is visit ing her parents Capt. and Mrs. W. L. Grimmer. Jno. J. Pridgen of Baltimore spent Sunday in town. Mr. F. M. Draughn of Rocky Mount was here yesterday. Mr. Draughn is one of our former citizens, and we are glad to know he is doing well and one of the leading merchants at Rocky Mount Rev. B. R. Hall preached in the M. E. church last week to the great de light of all who heard him. His ser mon was indeed a fine effort and was pronounced by many as perhaps the best they had ever heard. We hope soon to see the telephone line between I'oisnot and Wilson com pleted. e need the exchange and think it will prove of mutual advan tage. Wilson Personals Continued. Hon. F. A. Woodard who has been here a few days returned to Washing ton last night. Mr. Ed Rawlings left last night for Tarboro on business. Mr. Geo. K. Denmark of Washing ton D. C. is visiting his relatives Eld er P. D. Gold and family. Mess. Geo. D. Green and Judge Connor returned from a business trip to Goldsboro last night. Gratifying. , Our canvass for subscribers has been very gratifying, as also the com pliments concerning our first issue.' We have not as yet been to see everyone, but hope to soon. In the meantime we trust those we have been unable to see will drop in and give us their names. THE WILSON MARKFT. Corrected Weekly. COTTON.

Rice has killed fifty hogs this winter, the net weight being lo,?8o pounds, an average of 204 pounds. Who can beat this? On Sunday last Squire O. W. Spivey united in marriage Sallie Dew to John Edmundson, a colored couple. There were perhaps one hundred peo ple in attendance. The Mapiy.fr: les for this township were in iestiuu Saturday to receive the reports of the road overseers. They appointed Saturday, Feb. 22nd, to let to the lowest bidder for repairs to the Black Creek and Great Swamp bridges which were damaged consider ably by the recent freshet. There has been considerable stealing in this section recently. The Post office, (no valuables taken), the store of Mr. J. B. Paschall, the smoke-house of Mrs. J;.T. Pittman, O; W. Spivey and HenryRaper's have been entered and a large amount of goods and meal taken. All efforts to apprehend the guilty parties have been of no avail. A safe, sure, and affective remedy to put a stop to so much steal ing would be for the County Commis sioners to buy blood hounds and have them in readiness to be on the spot in a few hours after a robbery had oc cured. It would be a paying invest ment for the tax payers. Let the County Commissioners of Wilson fol low those of Wavne in this matter and buy the dogs at once. X. X. X.
