Some of the farmers are eoniplainin"
of the dry weather. They think it will
injure the corn and cotton.
Col. U. Partin and Cajit. Georfja A.
Heptinstall went over—oh, no, started
over—to Whitakers last Thursday night
to see some young ladies. They got to
the swamp about two miles
from town 'when thu horso tho'ijiht of
somethinf; he had foi:ntten. Ileatopp-
ed'aod turned over in his mind what to do.
The Capt., who was in command, did not
like it, so bo got down in the mud to ar
gue with tbe horjo, but eould not oon-
vinoa him that it was best to proceed. Then
the Ool. thought he'd have more influence
so he began first to argue, then to plead
and then to coax him, but no go. Col.
p. then went to the corn field and got
him a few blades of fodder. “George,
I'll bet he’ll go now,” said he. fie put
the fodder over his shoulder, went to the
horse's head and started slowly. The
horse made two stops then stopped, and
looked meaningly at Capt. IT., as if he
wanted to say. “you can't fool me.” They
eould do nothing with tho horse, .so they
had to como back. When they left town
they looked like two dudes, but when
they came back they looked like—well,
I'll say two muddy individuals. M.

UEAKNESS CAN'T BE CURED
by local applications, as they cannot reach
the diseased portion of the ear. There
is only way to cure deafness, and that is
by constitutional remedies. Deafness is
caused by an inflamed condition of the
£ustachian Tube. When this tube gets
inflamed you have a rumbliug sound or
imperfect hearing, and vfhen it is entirely
closed, Deafness is the result, and unless
the inflammation can be taken out and
this tube restored to it4 norninl oondition,
hearing will be destroyed forever; nine
oases out of ten are causod by catarrh,
which is nothing but an inflamed condi
tion of the mucous surfaces.

his eventual reiloration to health are

favorable. He says that “tho Senator

snake’s rattle is like tho sound which

Dumber of peas in a paper bag. This
repre.scnts the slightness of the sound.
Wo are accustomed to pictorial represen

look very angry and energetic, the tail
erect in a manner to suggest a loud alarm.
Accordingly when one hears it for the
first time one is so surprised to find the
noise so slight. Tho sound, instead of
being a rattle, is rather a tinkle, and per
haps it has a rather more metallic charac

A cai:i! Homnwhat out of the ordinary
was that of tho State vs. J. H. Summtr
for iissaiilr, in the Criminal Court on
Thursday, heard by Judge II. Base lu
Carter. Tlio pro.secuting witness in li e
case was.I. H. Lance, who testified that
tho dnfrndant assaulted him with a roek.
lu answer to this Mr. Summer set up a
plea of self defense, in that this witness
had first assaulted him with a deadly
Weapon, to wit, a mule. .Judge Carter,
knowing tho general reputation of tho
mule kind, whether by expurienee or not
deponent saith nut, iniiuired which end
of the mule was coming towanl Mr. Sum-
lU'-r. The witness rejilied that the rear
portion of the mule, generally adjudged
tho business end, came first. The court
tbereupfin held that the luulo was a
deadly weapon and in.structed thejuiy to
find accordingly. Mr. Summer was

A gentleman in Richmond wanted to
purchase a pocket knife, and was shown
one of the Roger’s two bladcd kind
which, befor.' tbe McKinley tarifl', cost
fifty ccnts. On offering to pay that sum
for it he was told that tho price of that
knife now was sixty-five cents, but that
there was a yankee knife made to look
exactly like it which was sold for fifty
cents. On examining the latter ho found
it was not worth half the money, and so
he paid tho extra fifteen cents and took
the Rogers’anicle. Here is a practical
home illustration of how McKinleyism

worthless goods on a helpless purchasing

CAN THIS HE TUUE.
Tho Shelby Review says ; There is
an old man in No. f> township who some
time ago deeded his property to his son
upon tho agreement that the son should
care for him what little time ho had to
live. After getting possession of tbe
property he drove tho old man away.
Some days ago tho feeble old man went
back to beg for bread. It was refused
him and he turned back. Feeblo from
want of food, bowed down with sorrow
and humiliation, he fell exhausted by the
way.side, where ho was found by neigh
bors who took him to a house near by
and ministered to his needs. When
driven from home by his inhuman son
the old man was given an asylum by a
daughter, who hud been deserted by a
worthless husband who left her destitute.
A LAMP STORY.
Wo tell the story as it was told to us.
Avery reliable gentleman named Mr.
Jones who lives near the Raleigh and
Gaston depot, on yesterday afternoon
during the storm, noticed that his lamp
was burning. Ho extinguished it, but
in a moment there came a vivid flash of
lightning and the lamp was again lighted.
He concluded that the better part of
wisdom was to remove it tho yard, which
he did in quiok order. Perhaps tho visi
tation uf Murs hud sontothing to do with
it. At any rate, it beats “Aladdin and
his wonderful lamp"—I’sleinh Visitor.
