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 early day.

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 itssuperiori'v over thnm is acknowledged, as is attt'H«l bv >ht leadini; newspaper* of the ocMiniry, wiiiuh h.ive colnwns of matter tueiuini* with oumplimaatary no- tioea of tha abuw.
