The crops arc fairly good, but arc lat
er than usual and are suffering from the
cold weather and too much rain. The
stand is generally good, but little work
can be done and “chopping out" is slow.
There is complaint of scarcity of labor
caused hy the exodus last fall, and the
gravitation of able-bodied hands to the
trucking centres where wages are thought
to be higher. ,
Summer visitors are already beginning
to arrive for the benefits they derive
from I’anacca and Shaws Springs. Mr.
Pullen says he has received hundreds of
applications for board, and will have both
his hotels full. Others can be accommo
dated at private houses.
Mr. J. L. Shaw is putting up a two
story brick building, or rather adding a
story to the one already erected. It is
the only brick building in the place.
A contract hits been made for the
chapel of the Female college. It will be
32x(S0 feet and when completed will
have cost $.5,000. It will bu fiaislied in
natural pine, oiled. The seats will be

will be completed in two or three montbi-'.

There is a good deal of dysentery in
this section, though none of it has devel

coutined to infants and children.
The price of cotton is not cneouraging
to farmers. On Saturday a small quan
tity sold for the low price of 87.00 per
hundred, less than could have been real
ized for it lust fall.
Nothing has been heard lately of the
handsome hotel to bu erected at Paoicta
Springs and the projected railroad to
that place. If the company has any
movement of the kind in contemplation
it has not been made known. In the
meantime it is pushing the sale of the

TIIEIR I>R00RE8g AND IMPROVEMENT
IN THE STATE.
The people of Whitakers are taking
steps to secure a branch of the Hitch
road which runs between Hamilton and
Tarboro, having a deep water outlet at
the former place. They want competi
tion with the Coast Line. The road, if
built, will run through a fine agricultural
scction and would also rcach largo quan
tities of timber of various kinds.
The Wilmington, Onslow & Eastern
Carolina road has been equipped and put
in operation to Jacksonville, and the com
pany has about agreed to extend the line
to New Bern, a distance of forty miles.
This road has already developed consid
erable interest in the section through
which it passei), and bids fair to be no
small factor in the development of that
The Atlantic Coast Line has perfectsd
arrangements by which through trains
with Pullman sleepers and buffet cars
will run from Charleston to Cincinnati,
making the distance, 700 miles, by the
new schedule, which has already gone in
to effect, by way of Columbia, Asheville
and Knoxville, in twenty-six hours. This
schedule gives through Pullman cars to
Spartanburg, Saluda, Flat Rock, Hen.
dcrsonville and Hot Springs. The new
departure is regarded as important.
The extension of the Atlantic and
North Carolina road from Goldsboro to
Fayetteville, and thence to Charlotte, has
been brought to the attention of the pub
lic since the aiJjunrniueiit of the Legis
lature, but no Jetinite acili>n has been
taken io regard to it. Hetween Fayette
ville and Charlotte it would puss through
some exceedingly fine country rich in
mineral deposits and timber resnurees
while between Goldsboro and Fayette
ville it would penetrate a fine agricultural
section, which has none of the advantages
of railroad transportation.
The Wilmington and Weldon road
has adopted the “Quick Acting Automa-
tic Brake" which is operated much moic
rapidly than those now in use and is not
considered dangerous. It has also adopt
ed the “Frost Dry Carbonator Light,"
which is fed by compressed air stored
underneath the oar which is forced up
thtough gasoline and gives a bright, clear
liglit equal to the electric light and far
superior to it so fat as simplicity of man
agement is concerned. This is the only
road of the Atlantic Coast Line between
New York and Jacksonville which has
adopted this new and improved feature in
The Cape Fear and Cincinnati and
the Charleston and Norfolk are other
projected enterprises of considerable mag
nitude. The former is to run from
Southport to Cincinnati, and the latter
from Charleston through North Carolina
to Norfolk, crossing the Carolina Cen
tral between Maxton and Cronly, the
C. F, & y. V. near Black river and the
W. & W. about Dupliu Roads or Burgaw
and thence to Norfolk by a route not
yet determined upon.

At the home of Dr. J. T. Graves last
Sunday we were shown a hickory cane
that was cut in Union county (we believe)
by President Andrew Jackson, who pre
sented it to bis old friend, the father of
Dr. Graves. It is mounted in silver and
engraved suitably. It is in an excellent
state of preservation, and should be sent
to the World's Fair in 1893, as a part of
North Carolina's exhibit. The Dr. is
justly proud of this memento of a good

LOVE MAKING IN MEXICO.
AMERICAN WOMEN VERY POPULAR
BECAUSE THEY ARE APPROACHA-
Baron Straus said that American wo
men were so popular in Mexico that it
interfered with the wheels of justice in
that republic. “The American women,”
he said, “go about Mexico as they would
in this country, while the Mexican wo
men are caged up like birds. The only
wav to make love to them is to stand
off some one hundred yards and stare.
“The pretty scnorita sits in her room

There is one chance in a hundred of
gettin^an opportunity to speak to one
while she is in church, but that is the
only place. Last summer a New Yoik
merchant and his beautiful daughter
stopped for a few days in the little town
where I was sojourning. The young
lady was one of the handsomest that I
have ever seen—light hair, eyes like bits
of Heaven's blue, classic form and all
that was lovely. Well, can you imagine
what a stir she created among the young
Mexicans, who are held so fur away from
the native women?
“The eon of a wealthy planter used to
stand for hours opposite the window of
this American girl. One day the father
went to the City of Mcxico, leaving the
girl unattended for a few hours. The
young lady walked to the hotel from the
station and was followed by the Mexican
admirer. As she was neatly home the
young fellow rushed up to her, and im-
pluDling a ki.s upon her forehead ran
away for dear life.
“When the father came home there
was a little excitement. He had the
young fellow arrested, and the next day
he was brought before the judge, who
gravely asked what the charge was?”
“ ‘Assaulting a woman,’ spoke up the
“Whiit (lid the prisoner dn?''
“ ‘He ran up to my daughter on the
street and kis.scd her.’
“He kissed the lovely young lady?"
asked the judge, os he left bis desk and
carefully scrutinized the fair American.
“ ‘Well, who wouldn’t?" remarked the
judge, as he left the court room. And
wnuld you believe that was all the satis-
factinn the New Yorker could get in
A Wonder Worker.
Mr. Frank Huffman, a young man of
Burlington, Ohio, states that he bad been
under the care of two prominent physi
cians, and used their treatment until he

nounced his ease to be Consumption and
incurable. He was persuaded to try Dr.
King's New Disoovery for Consumption
Coughs and Colds and at that time was
not able to walk across the street without
resting. He found before he had used
half a dollar bottle, that he was much
better; he continued to use it and is to

BABIES USED AS BAIT.
JEWISH INFANTS IN RUSSIA STOLEN
AND SHIPPED TO EUVPT AS BAIT
FOR CROCODILE HUNTERS.
V. M. Atkinson, an English traveller
who was at the Leland yesterday, has
recently visited Moscow and othei Rus
sian cities. He declares that tho Jews
are persecuted must cruelly, and portrays
a riot where a dozen Jewish infants were
torn from their mothers’ arms and thrown
in the streets. Mr. Atkinson says that
every stranger coming to Moscow who
has a long nose is obliged to go before
the Russian authority i^nd prow that he
is not a Jew. It appears that the Jews
cannot leave Moscow until* they have
signed a document stating that they have
no pecuniary obligations in the city.
Mr. Atkinson states that London philan
thropists are endeavoring to get the Jews
to emigrate to the Arabian shores of the
Red Sea, and negotiations have been be
gun with the Egyptian government.
“You have no idea of the cruelty in-
fiictcd iipon the poorer classes of the
Jews," related the traveller. “For a
year or so hundreds of babes have been
stolen and shipped to various ports on
the Nile to be used as bait by the croco
dile hunters. Of course, they are not all
eaten up by animals but now and then
one is caught. The ctocodile hunters
place a baby on the shores of the stream
and presently the lazy animals come out
of their beds after the infant. When
the crocodile get near the little one and
within shooting range of the hunters,
who are concealed in the bushes, they
are shot. The little babes serve as a bait
to bring the animals on the banks, and by
this means it ii possible to get many animals
which could not be reached in any other
way. It has been said that the hunters
have lot tho crocodiles approach too near
the babes before firing and theit first
shot being ineffectual the little one was
eaten up. At any rate they are used
for bait. You think it queer that a
wholesale kidnapping of babes is not no
ticed in the newspapers. That is not
strange. You don't know Russia. The
papers there can only print what the
government approves of. If an editor
gets any news that is sensational he must
first submit it to some official before using
it. That is Russia."—From the Chicago

the syrtem; it may be used as a tonic by
the most delicate woman; it may be given

or it may be employed to restore to

INO EXPERIMENT AT NAt'HAK-
Mrs. Cleveland, tho wife of
President, has a largo fund of httkt*

in connection with Mr. Cleveland’s V
to the South, where his wife accom|>
nied him. At the reception held
Nashville Mrs. Cleveland, while receivingX
tho public and shaking hands like a vet
eran office-holder, remarked in an under
tone to u friend; “How many do you
think I can shake in a minute?" “Don’t
know," was the reply, not more than a
dozen, surety. “Humph! More than
that; fifty, if one.'' “You can’t possibly
doit." “Well," was the reply, “you
just time me one minute. Ready!”
And tho next instant she was shaking
hands “for dear life.”
“Time?" called the friend.
“How many?" was Mrs. Cleveland’s
“Psbuw! I can do better than that;
give mo another chance."
And she smiled and shook hands with
the populace for sixty seconds more, at
the rate of sixty five to the minute.
“I knew I could do it," she remarked,
‘‘and I think if it wasn’t so crowded up
here I could make it seventy.—N. x.
The more sensitive nature of the fe
male sex renders women much more sus

which spring from lack of harmony ia
