Under thejeaption "Democracy is
Immortal," in the Charlotte Ob
server of this (Saturday) morning,
we read of the grand Democratic de
monstration and barbecue at Shaion,
afewmiles from Charlotte. Speeches
were made by Csborne.Lockhart and
Glenn, and Ham, of Georgia. The
Observer tells this as an effect:
"A certain original character who
kept a tavern in the good old happy
days gone by in Salisbury had a
method of grading and gauging the
various stages of "j ig" gedncsg of
the customers who partook of the
mellow hospitality he dispensed over
hia bar. When any of the s:iid cus
tonSJfeohed the point of hilarity,
he was "in ambush;" when he hud
gotfcon to the point of whooping
things up he was "fully presented."
Before the speakers at Sharon yes

life giving elixir of Democratic
doctrine, the Democracy of Mecklen
burg county may be said to have
been "in ambush" with eptbnsiatn;
and by the time the torchlight

were over, it was nndonbtly "fully
At least 800 mounted men were in
the procession. Between 5,000 and
6,000 were in the auditorium to

nothing of a lady. Mrs. Morris es

bruises about the face and body.

Now I am not superstitious one
bit, but seeing accounts in your
paper of so many runaways on the
"fatal hill," better known as the
Fisher Hill, just beyond the depot,
it recalls to memory the time when
I was quite youthful and my dear
old father would take me to stroll
on a Sunday afternoon and tell me
of the historic rock that is on that
hill the rock that turns oyer every
time it hears a train blow. That
rock has never been removed and
probably that is the cause of so many
accidents. But there is something
else to consider, and that is the
lonesome graveyard at the top of the
hill. There is a rabbit-sea- ia ahe
gravevard and whenever one of these
skipping little fellows cross the road
you may lookout for an accident.
A graveyard rabbit is a great deal
more unlucky than an ordinary pine
field rabbit, unless you can get its
left hind foot. One old colored man
who was witness to a rabbit coming
up out of a suuken grave out there
says they go into the coffias and

the spirits of the deal, although in
visible in daylight to the human
eye, an animal can see them, and he
claims that this is the cause of many
horses to shy and run away and so
many accidents over there. He also
claims that some of thesj rabbits are
witches. He knows of where three
witches range out there near the old
camp ground and showed me their
hiding places. They cau talk and
run and cau't be killed.
