When the lamented Jind beloved
Vance was a candidate, for Governor,
in 1876, he and Judge Fowls were
not even on speaking terms, yet that
great orator and lover of constitu

Vance, and all the way down from
the lofty peaks of the blue lidge to
the sandy beach of old ocean his
splendid voice was heard in favor of
Vance, Democracy and constitional

Here is ;somethingf about politics
that the good ladies of Surry-county
can appreciate. Flannel which were
sold three months ago at twenty-
fiye cents a yard can now be bonght
for twenty cents. This is a saving
of five conts a'.yard. The Baying on
all qualities of flannel is twenty per
cent or one fifth. ' Flannels which
heretofore have sold at fifty cents a
yard can now be bought.at forty
cents. In buying ten yards of
flannel which has heretofore sold at
twenty five cents a yard there is a
saving of fifty cents. 'All this is
the result of the new f Democratic
tariff. In hundreds of other ways
the people will save many dollars
which have heretofore gone to
satisfy the greed of an extravagant

Sunday night by thieves and a num

things taken were three quarter sacks

broken out and the store entered in
