It is said that James Gordon Bennett

The Health of Burgaw.
We are glad to learn , as we do from
Dr. W. T. Ennett, that the 'health of
the thriving little town of Burgaw was
not as bad as reported to us a few days
ago. Dr. Ennett says that it is really
good for this season of the year, better,
in fact, in proportion to population,
than it was a year ago. The town
seems to be on a boom, there having
been an increase of about 25 per cent,
in the population during the past twelve
months. They should build that taik-ed-of

see how last the place will grow.

Registration of Voters.
Editok Daily Review: In your
issue of 20th you say that voters will
do well to remember that there will be
an entirely new registration this year."
By the law (the Code, sec. 2,675) a new
registration is not required, unless
the County Commissioners so order.
Probably the Commissioners ot New

that; if not, it may cause some confu

It can safely be laid down as a rule in
these days ofuniversal advertising that
the man who don't advertise either has
uothing for sale which will bear talk
ing about or be is so old and fogyish in
his methods of business that he has got
so far behind the times that he will
never catch up. There is no surer evi
dence of snap and energy in a business

ing. In the stor or warerooms
of a large advertiser the purcbas-
finds the latest styles,' the best ma
terial, the most approved patterns, the
most reliable goods and the most ad
vanced business methods. Advertising
pays, not only in the matter of attract
ing customers, which is the legitimate
aim of all advertisements, but it enables
the reader to see who are the really live
and energetic men in any business, and
by keeping them constantly in mind
the reader of the paper can avoid- the

Cupt.W. H. James of this CIfy
Dies by his Own Hand.
At about 9 o'clock this morning
the report of a pistol was' heard
on the Eecond floor of the brick
building on North Second street,
between Princes? and Chestnut, occu
pied by Capt W. H. Jame3 and hi3 as
sistants as an oflic3 ot enquiry, and by
himself as a residence, and in a mo
ment of time a young man came rushing
down the stairs for a physician, stating
as he hastened along that Capt, Jame
hadshot himself. A crowd wascollecte
at the cnterance almost instantly. and
few went up stairs to find Capt. James
prostrate upon his back, the blood
oozing from a fearful woud in the
back of his head, about on a line with
the bottom of the right ear and half
way between that organ and the centre
of the skull. The pistol lay upon the
floor a few inches from the right band,
from which it had evidently fall
en immediately upon being discharged.
Drs. Love, and Hartsfield were in
attendance in a few moments, and
were with Capt. Jame3 until he died,
which was in about 15 minutes after
the wound was inflicted. Officer Allen,
of the police force, was also present
and took charge until the arrival ot the
Coroner, who had been at once notified
of the occurrence- Upon the arrival
of the latter, which was in a few mo
ments, the charge was at once trans
ferred to him.- The weapon Was a
Smith & Wesson six-barrelled revolver
of 32 calibre, and an examination
showed that five of the chambers were
loaded and that the other was empty.
The Coroner immediately summoned
and impanelled the following as a jury
of inquest: L. J. Otterbourg, foreman;
John Nutt, W. H. (lerken. Henry
Middleton, E. M- Green and G. W.
Sheridan. The jury proceeded at once
to take testimony, the first witness
being Dr. J. A. Hartsfield, who, being
duly sworn, said that he was called
upon at a little after 9 o'clock this
morning and hastened immediately to
the scene. Found the deceased prone up
on the floor as already described, breath
ing hard. Ceased breathing in about
five minutes, although the pulsations
continued four minutes longer, when
they also ceased and life had become
extinct. He thought that the shooting
Dr. F. W. Potter, being duly sworn,
said that the ball entered the back part
of the head and passed clear through
the brain, lodging just behind the right
eye. The wound was necessarily fatal
and in bi3 opinion the shooting was
Lewis Beldeei, a young lad who took
care of the room for Capt. James, be
ing duly sworn, said that he entered
the room between 7 and 8 o'clock, at
which time the deceased was asleep on
the bed. That he soon after went for
ice, and while he was gone the shooting
took place, and when he returned ho
found a crowd gathered and the captain
dying upon the floor, and was sent im
mediately for a physician.
Messrs. J. C. Lodor and Mr. J. N.
Blauvelt, two assistants in the office,
testified that they were at work at their
desks in another room when they.heard
thejreport of a pistol and the fall of a
body, upon which they rushed to Capt.
James room and found him as already
described. They had heither of them
seen aim during the morning until after
This closed the testimony, and upon
this the jury rendered a verdict .as fol
lows: "That the deceased came to bis death
by a pistol shot wound inflicted in the
head by his own band."
Capt. James came here in 1863 and
entered at once upon duly in the Con
