Anotrrr Freight Train Needed.
—With the approach of fall tbe movinj;
of ths mopf requires more f(eight service
on the railroads, and it is to be hoped
that the authorities of the Wilmington
and Weldon road will put a daily freight
train on the Scotland Nook and Green
ville road. L'lat season it was found
neccssary to ran a daily freight on this
branch, which was rcdoced to a tri
weekly during the dull season. It should
again be run daily. Tbe mail train ought
out to be rci|iired to do freight business
every other duy. It is an unnecessary
inconvenience to the travelling piiblie and
tho travelling public baa some rights. Wo
have no doubt, however, that another
freight train will be put on the road at an
Sbnt on for Housebrbakino.—

The Great John Robinson Show
to be in WELDON ON OCTOBER 7TH.—
It is seldom that tho people of this town
have an opportunity of witnetsing such an
intoreeting and instructive attraction as
the John Robinson show, which will ex
hibit bore on October 7 th, afternoon and
night. There are many alleged or so-
called mammoth shows traveling over tbe
country preying upon the credulity of tbe
people, but of them all there is none that
comes to any city with such an undeniable
and profuse array of recommendations
and flattering press noticcs as that of
John Robinson. Its sixty seven years of
existence and fair dealing with the people
has won for it a reputation that is unsur
passed both for leliahility, quantity and
quality. In presenting its claims before
tbe critical public the Robinson abow
uses none bnt cold facts and conservative
statements. It will therefore be impossi
ble for tbe casual reader of the triumphs
of this great attraction to imagine with
any degree of thoroughness what a re-
markable and entertaining show it is. It
is the primaiy aim of all connected with
this show to strictly adhere to the policy
of honesty in all its dealings, and this
instruction is particularly applied in tbe
matter of advertising.
The advanoe agents are energetic and
bard workers, and through tbeir efforts
every honorable method of n>aking known
to the po‘>ple of Weldon and the surround
ing country tbe numerous features of tbe
show have been adopted. It it aa nuob
better advertised tban anv other show u
