From passengers arriving in the city
to-day from the yicinity of Six Runs
and Stewart's Creek, in Sampson coun
ty, we learn that the crops were never
in a more prosperous condition. The
section spofen of contains some of the
best farms and most industrious farm
ers in East Carolina, and we rejoice at
the success which bids fair to crown
their, efforts, and hope that no unto
ward event may prevent them from
reaping an abundant harvest.

There is nothing new in saying tha
lemon-juice is good for malaria; or, in
other words, that it is useful to combat
intermittent feyer by the victims of that
disease. A French medical iournai
recommends a decoction of the fresh
lemon, that is, a lemon cut into slices
and boiled in a new earthen pot, making
practically, a lemon tie. It is to be
given four hours before the fever, and is
paid to be as serviceable as quinine,
without having any of its il' effects.
There are many industries which
have sprung into existence in this sec
tion within the last few years, which
had never before been dreamed of, but.
but which have proved a source of profit
to those engaged in them. The gather
ing of-dog tongue is among the most
important and lucrative of these indus
tries. The plant grows abundantly
throughout this section of "the State,
can be gathered with but little trouble
and a ready market is found for all
that can be procured. Our friend and
subscriber, Mr. A. H. Morris, at
Teacheys Depot, Duplin county, on
the Wilmington & Weldon Railroad, is
largely engaged in the purchase and
shipment of dog tongue. On Monday
the 14th inst.. he bought 3,680 pounds
of the plant, on the 15th, 6.742 pounds,
and on the 16th, 5.273 pounds, making
an aggregate for the three days' pur
purchases, amounting to 15,695 pounds.
Tbe above amounts will be about his
average during the season.
At about 1 o'clock yesterday morn
ing some tbief broke into the premises
of Mr. T. F. Tyler, on Dock street, be
tween Eighth and Ninth , under cir
cumstances of most reckless daring.
Mr. Tyler had been reading upon a sofa
in the fiont room of the house and had
finally dropped off to sleep leaving the
lamp burning and the window raised.
The thief took one of the supports of a
jeejoggle, which was on the piazza of
an adjoining house and used it as a
step to climb into the window where
Mr. Tyler was asleep. After gaming
an entrance he passed directly through
the parlor to the room where Mrs.
Tyler was in bed and asleep, taking the
precaution to close and lock the door
after him . He then opened a widow
in Mrs. Tyler's room which led onto
the piazza , after which he searched the
pockets of Mr. Tyler's clothing, which
was in the room, from which he stole
about $15 in money. He thensat down
on the side of the bed and placed his
had upon Mrs. Tyler's face, which
awoke her. She supposed that it was
her husband, but soon discovered that
it was not, when she screamed and the
thief fled through the window. Her
screams awoke Mr. Tyler and he at
once started to her assistance, but
found the door locked and before he
could effect an entrance the scoundrel
had escaped. It was a small man, but
whether white or colored Mrs: Tyler
could not determine.
Death oi'Capt. John J. Evans.
Our citizens and a large circle of ac
quaintances throughout this section of
the South will be pained to learn of tho
death of Capt. John J. Evans, which
occurred at his residence in this city at
about 5 o'clock this morning, from
malarial fever. He had been sick but
about a week and his death took our
people by sad surprise. Capt. Evans
was a native of Pennslyvania, bat came
to the South when quite a 'young man
and was a stage agent in South Caro
lina while the Wilmington, Columbia
& Augusta (then known as the Wil
mington & Manchester) Railroid was
in course of consrtuction. Upon the
completion of the road Capt. Evans
was made one of the conductors, a po
sition which he occupied until after the
war, and in which he became widely
known as a courteous, obliging
and pleasant gentleman and a
most agreeable railroad official. Soon
after the war he removed to Pittsburg.
Pa , where be was engaged for several
years with his brothers in the steam
boat business on tbe Ohio river. He
returned to Wilmington about seven
years ago, and subsequently removed
to Goldsboro, where tor a time he was
engaged in mercantile pursuits. He
then came to Wilmington again,, and
until a short time since was a conductor
on the W. C & A. road.
Capt. Evans married a daughter of
the late Mr. Owen Holmes of this city,
his wife and three children surviving
him. In ail the relations and duties of
life, whether as husband, father, citizen
or official, Capt. Evans was a true,
kind and noble-hearted gentleman. He
was about 53 years of age at tho time of
his death. -

Almost an . Accident.
" Thismorning just before the steamer
Passport started on her regular trip
down the river, the furniture cart of
Mr. D. A. Smith was driven down to
the wharf with some freight. The
driver fastened his horse by tying the
iclns to one of the wheels, which
answered very well until the steamer's
whistle bio wed, when he became
frightened and started. . This wound
the reins up so tight that it caused the
horse to back, and if it had not been
for some one who jumped to the
animal's head aud cut the reins he
would have backed into the riyer. It
is a careless way to leave horses, and
especially so in any locality where
there is liable to be unusual noise and
Language of the Eyes.
It is said that very quiet eyes that
impress and embarrass one with their
repose signify self-command, but also
much complacency and some conceit.
Restless eyes that cannot look one
steadily in the face denote a deceitful,
designing mind. Eycs in which the
white has a yellowish tinge and is
streaked with reddish veins, prove
much of strong passion and hasty tem
pers. Very blue eyes bespeak inclined
to coquetty ; grey eyc3 signify dignity
intelligence and excellent reasoning
faculties; greenish eyes, faslehood and
a fondness for scandal. A malicious
mind is often indicated by greenish
eyes. Black eyes show a passionate,
lively temperament, and oftimes a
most deceitful disposition; brown eyes
are generally tender and true, indicat
ing a kind and happy disposition.
A tree is a sort of community, each
part having its own duties to perform.
The root hair takes up most of tbe
nourishment. . Tbe young ones take it
to the larger ones, and they, in turn,
like the branches of a river, pour the
flood of crude sap into the trunk, which
conveys it to the leaves. Tbe assimi
lated or digested sap passes from the
leaves to all growing parts of tho plant,
and a deposit is made where most need
ed. If a branch is much exposed to
the winds the base of it has a certain
support or certain amount of nourish
ment. So with tbe trunk of tree. If
the base of a branch or the main trunk
is much exposed to tbe winds and
storms, a much thicker deposit of food
is made there. Tbe winds give a tree
exercise, ;which seems good to help
make it strong. Oar toughest wood
comes from trees growing in exposed
places. The limbs of a tree'are all the
time striving with each other to see
which shall haye tbe most J room and
most sunshine. While some perish in
the attempt, or meet with only very in
different success, the stron gest of the
