Getting Ready for the Fourth.
We hear that there will be the
biggest time at the Hammocks and
Wrightsville Beach on the Fourth
that has ever beeif known in the his
tory of the road. At least, such will
be the case if an attractive pro
gramme can ensure, it. This pro
gramme has not yet been fully made
up but Capt. .Nolan is giving his
spare time now to the perfection of
the details. It should not be delay
ed, however, as our friends in the
country will want to know what we
are going to uo about it and takes
some little time to disseminate news
outside of the city.
The Work of the Waves.
Now, who was that young man
who suddenly parted company with
his bathinjr suit in the surf at Caro
lina Beaqh yesterday? It was really
a ludicrous thing. Some strings or
buttons gave way; while a party of
gentlemen were in the surf and the
victim of the disaster had a hard
tfme of it getting back into his in
teguments. He succeeded eventual
ly, while standing in the water up to
his chest, but not before the sharp
eyes of the girls on the beach had
spied out his sad plight and had ex
tracted a great deal of amusement
Another Hlgii way Outrage."
Alex. Moore, a venerable colored
man, a good citizen anu an indus
trious farmer, who resides about
four miles North of the city, was. re
turning from market yesterday
about noon when he was suddenly
attacked by a highwayman and only
his cries for assistance prevented
him from.being robbed. He called
in to see us this morning and gave
us the particulars. He says that he
was on his way home 'from market
and not far distant from it, and was
riding quietly along in his cart, with
his head bent down, when suddenly
without any previous warning what-
ever tne oiow or a cuugei ieu upon
his head with terrific force. It was
as though he had been struck by
lightning.. In a moment or so he
was unconscious but recovered and
began to cry tor help. His horse
started and threw him out of the
cart and then he ran a short dis
tance up the road, but knowing that
his assailant could easily overtake
him he halted and faced about, as
he did uot want to be struck again
frombehipd. The scoundrel soon'
came up with him and aimed blow
after blow at his head which was
warded off by the old man in throw
ing up his left arm to protect his
head. With each blow the high
wayman demanded his money .and
the old man continued to scream for
assistance. Finally, the robber, evi
dently fearing that his cries would
bring help, sprang from the road
and disappeared, without having
obtained the money. The old man
received a very severe blow on the
back of his head and his left
arm was very much bruised in his
attempt to ward off the blows.
All this happened on the public
highway, a much traveled road, only
four miles from the city, in the mid
dle of the day.
The assaulted man cau only de
scribe his assailant as a young and
vigorous colored man but he says
that other parties who passed up the
road just ahead of him savr the man
lyiug near the road with, a stout
cudgel under his head and that they
could identify him..
And now let us ask the county
authorities if any effort is to be
made to stop this business and to
apprehend the scoundrels. The
facts cannot be any longer ignored.
The people cannot afford tq be ter
rified by a few miscreants, who set
at defiance all law and order, re
gardless of the fact that a halter is
dangling before their eyes. Tbe thing
can be stopped and the'man caught

The Family Grocery at Carolina Reach.
Those who go to Carolina, Beach
and drop in to see that clev r gen
tleman, Mr. Hans A. Kure, akthe
store he has opened there will be
surprised to find what a large "and
extensive stock he carries. He owns
the lrge club house building and
he has filled it full of saleable iirtH
cles. The beauty of it is that he sells
them, too. The venture has proved
thus far very successful.
Mr. Kure has just completed the
erection of stables there. He has
his own horse and buggy, the first
ever carried to the Beach, and is ar
ranging stables for a number of
cows, so as to supply fresh milk to
the residents: He owns a consid
erable tract of land there and next
season he proposes, toclear it and
ley ut a truck garden. His family,
are resident at the Beach during the
season, he last year having erected
a handsome house south of the pa
vilion, which is the largest cottage,
by the way, at Carolina-Beach.
And Still Another.
Since the report , published . else
where relative to the attempted
robbery yesterday afternoon near
the city we hear of another incident
which cannot with exactness be
called an actual attempt at robbery
but 'something which, was plainly
pielimtnary to such an attempt. The
facts are these:'
Mr. James Epps, a well known
citizen, who is frequently employed
on Mr. Frank Gause's lighters, has
recently none some wont on a
tank for the Standard Oil Co. and
tins morning, aoouu o ciock, was
paid off. With n part of the money
he purchased a pistol and a box of
cartridges and then taking with him
his breech-loading shot gun he in
vited a Triend, Mr. Frank Knox, to
go with him outside the city limits
and have a shoot, Mr. Epps offering
to lire the pistol ugainst the gun.
The offer was accepted-and crossing
Smith's Creek the two halted in the
road a short distance beyond the
bridge and not far from the Poor
House and each fired twice at a
target on a- tree. Mr. Epps had
then left three shots in hi pistol and
had two cartridges for the- gun in
his pocket. On being asked by Mr.
Knox if he had any more balls he
jokingly replied that he had not.
Soon after these words "escaped him
a white man anil two colored men
emerged from behind some thick
bushes lining the road, - where they
had evidently been in hiding, and
one of the latter advanced on Mr.
Epps and asked him for change
for a dollar. Being willing to
oblige him,. Mr. Epps ran his hand
into his pocket and produced some
loose change. Just then he noticed
that tlie white man had got around
to his right and that, the other man
was edging around nervously to his
left.- Turning suddenly Mr. Epps
demanded what they all meant .by
trying to surround him in that way
when the reply came: "We will let
you know that directly' Thus was
plain enough for Mr. Epps, who
stepped back and cocked his pistol
and told them he would first present
them with a little cold lead. As he
cocked it tire men seemed to think
that there must be a few balls left,
despite the lire viousj assort ion and
they broke and ran.' The white mair
and one of the colored men made for
the railroad track, through the Poor
House field, aud the other jumped
the fejice into the Sans Souei plan
