The exhibit of the State of North
Carolina is. a very rich and remarkable
one. It is without doubt niore varied than
that of any other State, embracing as
it does the products of .almost eVery sec
tion of the Uuion. t
.The exhibit is thoroughly classifled,
aud is arranged with mucli taste and ar
tistic skill. It is divided into the several
departments ot geology and uuneraTogy,
agriculture apd fruit growing forestry
aud botany, manufactures and iudditries
and fisheries and taxidermy. - J
In the centre of the uiinernlogical
division stands one of -Jhe most -peculiar
and beautiful j structures in thl entire
exposition. It is an ornamentiil pagoda,
some twenty feet higlt, designed in the
Persian; style, with a swelling dome sup
ported jon pillars which stand on aii oc
tagonal foundation. The ebtire structure.
roof, pillars, and pediment.'are covered
completely with thi plates' pf mict. laid
ou in patents, and presenting. a brilliant
aud glittering effect. The building is
unique. . J j
Inside of it, displayed in -glass show
cases, are the gems and rare and precious
minerals which tho State affords. ProniU
ii cut among thm i (Jie Hiddenite, a dew
gem discovered in 183, In the cases iu
the pavilion are to be seen such stones
as emeralds, bery Isi , garnets, - topazes,
kayauite, rutile tourinaliue, quartz, crys
tals and gold uUggets.
Passing out of the mineral department
a lofty Gothic ' structure, with slcuder
columns, poiuted' arches and tall and
tapering spire pinnacled aud chocketed
hi due form, is reached. To all outward
appearauces it is constructed of straw, of
the stacks of wheat rye nod oats so arti
ficially disposed as "to conceal entirely
the wooden frarnework on which it is
laid. The ceiling is lined with blue
merino cloth, andjlijs is theouly material
used in its construction which does not
show the prmlacts pf the soil. I u-this
temple of Ceres are exhibited in the glass
jars samples of tho grain products, such
as wheat, rye, oatf, barley, - rice, Indian
corn and the scads, of sorghum and all
.the grasses. " '"
Banged reond 'Jt are cotton and hay
in uaies; the celebrated tobacco iu the
leaf and manufactured,, for which the old
North Stateisdjiflluguised; jute, peanuts,

The corner stone was laid July 4, 1848
when Robert Win throp, then Speaker of
the House of Representatives, made the
principal ' address. The cap stone was
put in position Dec. 6, 1884. It was
ogrignally intended that Mr. Winthrop,
who still lives, but is iu very feeble
Health, should ueuicate the monument.
Mr. Wiuthrop's health prevented this,
but he prepared! a speech and Congress
man Long, of Massachusetts, read it du
ring the ceremonies Saturday.
The entire cost of the monmncut was
$1,1 87,710,' aud of this sum Congress con
tributed $900,000. At its base the obelisk
measures 55 feet; square . aud the walls.
are 15 feet thick aud at the roof 7 inches
thick. The pyramidal top begins at the
500 foot mark, where the dimensions are

The bill to protect sheen comes up
on Wednesday as a special order. We
believe its chief feature is to impose a
tax of one dollar on dogs, provided that
any man who keeps two sheep may keep
one dog without paying any tax on him.
The operation of the law is, then, to
Offer a premium for a man to' keep two
sheep. Such a farmer may have his dog
and be exempt from paying his dollar.
We favor the bill square but There is,
it is true, an apprehension that people
will not pay a dog tax, j but we pay a
dog tax,- and others (can do the same.
There are nearly 400,000 families in
North Carolina, and if each family
keeps a dog, the dog tax would yield the
State $400,000 less! to be sure the
amount remitted as a set oft to "two
sheep." Under such a law the State tax
on land could be much reduced or the
people would become? thrifty and able
to pay their taxes with ease. If a man
started out to keep-two she he would
not stop there, lie would soon have a
flock of at least a dozen, and the wool
would be worth much more than his
entire county and State taxes would
amount to. jSuch a law; in three years
would add more, than" a million dollars
to the income of our people, and as soon
as they began to appreciate how valua
ble thewool crop is, they would go in
to the business largely, r We are terri
bly in earnest on this shevp question.
As the matter stands wool is highly
protected, and the tariff ! will never be
entirely abolished. Let the people of
North Carolina seek to avail themselves
of its benefits, as they have to be rob
bed by its exactions, t That is our phil
osophy. Jetcs and Observer.. .
! Female Tenacity of Life.
It appears from the gathered statis
tics of the world that women have a
greater tenacity of lif than men. Nat
ure worships the female in all its varie
ties. Among insects the male perishes
at a relatively earlier period. In plants
the seminate blossoms die earliest and
are produced on the weaker limbs. Fe
male quadrupeds have! more endurance
than males. In the; human race, des
pite the intellectual and physical
strength of the man,' the woman en
dures longest, and wfll bear pain to
which the strong man succumbs. Zi
m otic diseases are more fatal to males,
and more male children die than females.
Deverga asserts that the: proportion dV-
ing suddenly is aoout one iiundred wo
men to seven hundred !and eighty men;
one thousand and eighty men in the
United States in 1870 committed suicide,
to two hundred and eishtv-five women.
Intemperance, apoplexy, 'ut;Tiydro
cephalus, affections of t)ie heart, and liv
er, scrofula, and paralysis, are far more
fatal to males than females. .Pulmona
ry consumption, on the other ! hand ia
more deadly to the latteri Females in
cities are more prone to consumption
than in the country. All old countries
not disturbed by emigration have a great
majority of females in the population.
In royal families the I statistics show
more daughters than sons.: The Hebrew
woman is exceptionally long lived; the
colored man is exceptionally short lived.
The married state is favorable to pro
longation of life among i women. Dr.
Hugh proclaims that there are from
two to six per cent, males born than
females in the living population. From
which statistics we conclude that all
women ought to marry and that as
men are likely to become so scarce they
cannot be sufficiently; prized by the
other sex. - I 1 1 !
It was the policy of Great Britain
towards her American colonies to re
press mechanical skill and the planting
of manufactures here, l It was probab
ly wise to state o2 in that way as long
as possibte the time when America
would, by supplying herself, dose her
doors as ft market for British manufac
turers. But it probably did not enter
into the thoughts of the statesmen of
that day that America would some day
be competing with the manufacturers
of- England ; at their own '. doors.
Nevertheless such a time has' cornel for

After reaching the years of tuulei stand

John Huckaby was plowing near an old
dry well on the premise and happening
to look into the well, discovered the
missing billy walking around at the bot
tom, thirty-six feet below the surface.
Perhaps he was knocked by Master
White down in the well. The goat was
drawn out aud put on the grouud. Tak

for life, perhaps thinking that a danger

the combat and continued without inter

well eleven days without food or drink.

I was affected for nearly four years with
eczema. The doctors called, it at firt
erysipelas. I was treated by physicians.
I was cured by Swift's Specific. I used
about thirty bottles and have had no trou
ble with it since. I refused to take it, cTcn
after it was recommended to mu by others
for some time such was my prejudice; to
the name of it; but having tried it myself,
I now belivc it is the best blood purifier in
all my knowledge. It did another tiring for
me. I had suffered from piles for many
years. Since taking this medicine I have
been relieved, and believe it cured me.

The Swift Specific Company have the
most endubitable evidence as to the cure
of Cancer by their famous medicine, S.S.S.
Among others, John S. Morrow,, an old
and highly esteemed citize:n of Florence,
Ala., makes the following statement as to
the merits of this remedy: j
'I have been suffering with a Cancer in
my right ear, for about three years. I tried
various remedies and was treated ..with
Iodide of Potash, which produced rheu
matism. My feet and les were greatly
swollen, so that I could not walk. About
one year ago 'twas induced to try will's
Specific, which "Soon removed tlie trouble
in my limits, and my rheumatism is tiow
entirely gone and my Cancer is steadily
improving, being "better now .than at any
time within two years.' - This 'medicine has
done me more good than anything else I
have taken, and I feel that am on tlie road
to a speedy 'cure. Undoubtedly Swift's
Specific is the best blood purifier in the
Florence, Ala., Sept. 22, '84.
I have had a cancer on my f;ice for many
years. I have tried a great many remedies
but without relief. I almost rn-j; up hope
of ever being cured. Dr. ' Hard man, my
son, recommended Shift's Specific, which I
have takeii with yrcat results. My face is
almost well, and it is impossible tor me lo
express my thanks in words for what this
medicine has done for mc. 1 .
