tickets for the round trip at r the low
rate of $8.10. These tickets are good to
leave on Monday, Sept. 1st, and return
on any train up to the 10th of the
month. It is likely that many will
ake advantage of this rare opportunity.
As will be seen by the card published
in another column, Messrs. W. H. Al
derman & Co. have purchased the
stock and good will of the business
heretofore conducted by Messrs. F.
M. King & Cov and will continue it in
all of its branches. Mr. Alderman,
the senior partner, is a gentleman of
excellent business qualifications and
iarge experience, and is well known in
a large circle, and will doubtless suc

Itself. He left this morning on the
boat for Fayetteville.
To Mr. Horner, as much as to any
man Who ever lived in the State. North
Carolina owes as much of her intelect
ual development and progress. He
seems to possess that remarkable fac

ing upon the minds of his pupils that
he is not only a great master in the
science of teaching, but that there can
be none greater.
