Advice to old and young: In so

as in the same proportion that you
pass that oiiit of increase, will cause
you further injury to the eye. Using
glasses of stronger power than is ne

There was a big fire" in Wadesboro

The May number of Lippincotfs
Magazine is a curious and interest
ing experiment. The number is a
No Name number, with" a tantalizing
note of interrogation after tne title
of each article on the table of con
tents. We are informed, editorially,
that the-number is; contributed to
by some of the most popular of
American authors, and certainly the
contents are good enough for any
body. The complete novel is en
titled uThe Old Adam," and is a
strong study of American life in
Rome, drawn with much dramatic
power and insight. ' An excellent ar
ticle on the progress of music is enl
titled ''From Bacon to Beethoven."
There are two stories, one a humor
ous sketch of Jewish-life, "Mr. Son
aenschein's Inheritance," and the
other, a ghost story, uThe Portrait
and the Ghost." "Among My Weeds"
is a pleasant little out-of-doors es
say. "Old Delaware" is an interest
ing sketch of an interesting State.
The poetry is exceptionally, good.
"Nebuchadnezzar's Vife" is an ef
fective Eastern narrative, full of
passion and color. And who could
have written that weird and power
ful fancy "The House of Hate?"
Who may answer all the queries as
to the authors satisfactorily? Cer
tainly they afford entertaining food
for speculation and as they are in
cluded among the 'One Hundred
Prize Questions," they, will undoubt
edly set all .the readers of Lippin-
cotC 9 agog." ;
The Festival of the Poets. , i
We heard a lady; of experience
and judgment who was present last
night at the "Festival of the Poets"
says that, with onefexception, it was
one of the most beautiful entertain
ments ever given in this city. And
she was right. -Tfieiioble hall, gaily
decorated, was a scene of life, ac
tivity and loveliness. It Was throng
ed during the. early part of the
night and until the closing hours
there were a great many present..
There were booths arranged in and
around the room and these were
presided over by the ladies dressed
to sustain " characters niadeji iui
mortal by the classic poets,
both ancient and jnodern.- On
these booths were offered for sale
various articles tha seemed to find
ready purchasers and which . were
thronged throughout the evening.
Not only were the cbstumes of the
ladies rich and tasteful but they
were appropriate. We would be
glad to publish all of the characters
bdt the space at our disposal forbids
it. The entertainment must be seen
to be appreciated. It were a facile
pen indeed that could begin to do
justice to the subject: The Festival
will be continued this evening and
to-morrow evening. - -. :
