Turner SjmiIic Lots or Cotton to Pick Yet. Tiaa ia cooler weather than we ' have had so far. tb is fall. Lots of cotton to pick yet and this weather is hard on it When two farmers meet their greeting is : "Mcst through sowing wheat " Mr Sam L Hood has returned from the eastern part of the Stale. All of his friends are glad to eee him. Hon. Jjhn D. 'Inrcer was here yesterday and made a fine speech. Many of the crowd said that it was as good as any speech they have heard this year, end some that'it is -best they eyer heard. His plan of argument was about the as thatof Senator Jarvis. He spoke for two hours and the crowd wanted him to speak longer, but he sloped to give Mr. Puryear time to speak, after sliich Mr. Shinnmsdeatalk. There will be another speaking here Sat- urdayEernoon by Mr. GlenD, one of the- finest orators in North Carolina.? MecklenbnrK County Has n Biff Day 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 terday were through dispensing the 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 procession in Charlotte and the in spiring oratory of Ham of Georgia were over, it was nndonbtly "fully presented. At least 800 mounted men were in the procession. Between 5,000 and 6,000 were in the auditorium to hear the ojte-tCv ingot. A Very Karrow Escape, Friday night when returning from Piney Grove church, in No. 11 township, Messrs R Will Johnson and L D Duval met with hard luck They had teen out to a political Yeting and the terrific nda set in bef ore they started back. It rained so hard that in a short time the streams were considerably swollen. They did not stait to town until about 11 o'clock, and when they reached the usually small branch jnsfc bck of Mr. Sandy White's, they then realized how terrific the Burging little stream wa3. As they descended into the water, the buggy turned over, throwing them both out and washed the buggy and horse down stream about thirty-five or forty feet. The unfortunate men swam to shore and gave the alarm and in a s.hort while, Mr. Frank Bost ar rived with a lantern. Owing to the intense darkness, it was some time before the horse canld be found. After finding the buggv the horse was unhitched and taken- out, . leaving the buggy and ;ess to the mercy of the stream, he horss was pretty badly hurt, ng, somehow ran a stob into his Bide. It wi'l not result seriously though Messrs Johnson and Duval being a little damp and stiff, in order to get proper exercise, walked to town, reaching home about 3 o'clock tbie (Saturday) morning. It was indeed a very unfortunate occurence, bat it might have been worse , Hrs. Cleveland to Christen the St. lrfnis. Washington, Nov. 3. Mrs. Cleve land has accepted the, in vita tion to christen the American Line steamer St-Louis, which will be launched at Philadelphia on Monday, November 12ih. The President will not at tend i he ceremony, but Mrs. Cleve land will leave Washington on a special train Monday morning, ac companied by a party of her own aelectiOD, including the wives and daughters of the cabinet officers and a number of personal friends, res turning to Washington " the same afternoon. DREYFUS WILL BE SHOT. That Deserved fate Is tn Reserve Tor The Treacherous French Captain. Paris, Nov. 1. A special cabinet council was held today to consider che case of Captain Albert Dreyfus, who is now under arrest and confined in the military prison oa a charge of high treason in having sold inform a tion in regard to the plans of tLe frontier fortification to the agents of the Italian government and also dU vulged the plans for mobilizing the French army in the event of war, it is the general opinion that Captain Dreyfus will be shot after the for mality of a court martial has been gone through with. It is aleo charged that he has sold to foreign agents information simi lar to that supplied to the Italian government, and, further thafc.be has given to Austria and Germany the names of al the French officers who have lately been sent abroad on 60s cret missons. Dr. Prltchard Encouraged. Rev. Dr. Pritchard held services nightly in Concord last week. Ho came away feeling a little discou. aged. Not that there was a lack of interest or small congregations for the church was filled at each service but few came out boldly for Christ and His cause. Yestcrd-iy the doctor received a letter from tho pastor in Concord telling him of a number of additions to tho church Sunday, of many reclamations, and of a general spiritual swakening. Charlotte Observer. Vnlcss the Weather Changes Bnck Won't Go It. Ciipt. Kitchen said at Monroe on the 9th of October that it would have to be snowing in hell when he voted for Faircloth and Furches, As the weather continues moderate and th'.re is no immediate prospect of a snowfall in bell or elsewhere next Tuesday, it appears as if the noa partisan iudioal ticket will have ?o get elected without tho vote of the esteemed KitcLtn.--Statesville Land mark. The Bet tingbtills Favors Morton and Strong. , ' New York, Nov. 2 Betting on tfce State and city results continue to favor Morton and Strong. On the slock exchange $500 to $315 was wagered today that Strong would be elected mayor, and at much more was offered without nnowg takers. One bet of $1,000 to $400 was made oa Aiortoa tor uovernor, whicn is an increase of odds as ihey have heretofore been conceded by tin backers of the Republican nominee. . Euss y,Inirncfc -theer: . Thursday evening as Mr. Wiil Morris and wife were returning from town homeward they came near meetirg with a serious accident They were on the fill in the new cut road just back of the Fenix floor mills. Tho off horse shied at some thing pushing the other one into the ditch. After pushing its com panion into the ditch it fell in upon him. Mrs. Morris wa3 thrown out on the two harass and the buggy turned over on her. It wa?, indeed, not anl envious position for a man, saying nothing of a lady. Mrs. Morris es caped however, with a few slight bruises about the face and body. Mr. Morris did not f all in the wreck as it were. Theology and Syntax. The Rev. Dr. Charles H Park hurst Bays : "I am so much of Pres byterian that I belieye it is written down m destiny thfc victory is to transpire." If this be true, it is not oniy writ ten down in destiny, but in extreme ly bad English, Speaking at o. 6, At Rimer's Friday night a torch light procession and a grand Demo cratic rally took place in which about 200 or 300 hundred people took part, a great many going from town. Speeches were mnde by Hon. W G Means, H S Puryear and Col. Paul B Means. Citizens in that section of the county are all Democratic and enthusiasm Friday night ran high. Yes, We are Beared. Mr. Sim 8, in a circular under the caption "A Campaign Fact" has thefollowing to say about the Daily Standard : " "P. S. The Ddi'y Standard is yery much alarmed lest some one votes for me not knowing it. Those tickets are already in the hands of my friendd and you will not find them among the other tickets on the day of election, Johk A. SiM3." Did you notice, that he says "they will sot be fonnd with - the other tickets on. tbe day of election f'.Most any intelligent man 'would know that, especially when the count com out. KORNER WRITES. Korner hns not 6aid any thing in a long time not since the county canvass of candidates began." But ' I am sail m the fight. Politics are raging just at this mo ment, but when the war is over Tuesday at sunsdown, you will hear a wailing ia the land the Populists will be crys ing: "I have bad the yoke about my neck; now, oh Lord, let me die, that my name will soon be forgot ten." Had the thought ever oc enrred to you how soon one is for gotten when his career is ended and laid beneath, the cold, cold ground ? That i'.'ene whom has notand never will gain the confidence of our peo ple. So it will be with the Populists. Buck . Ki'chjn was received here n few weeks ago by the Populists anil Republicans p.a au Bdvocate of a fusion agreement between the two parties, but, alas, his leaders anu some of hia followers were too tough far him. He had to "jump the gang" that was making such a harnm scar um over the State without the slightest foundation""&fprinci plcs. No honest, intelligent man can support a fusion or co-operative ticket, and claim to liaye principles. Oil and water won't mix neither will Populists and Republicans. It is "Hon. Buck Kitchen" once again. t didn't take the "fuse" a great while to "strike a knot" in his conscience. The Pops and the rad Will feel mighty bad When the sun goes down toworrosv, They'll not smole a smile, In their late bland style, But crawl in their holes in sorrow. 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 commune with the spirits and that 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. Korner can't sing, but he did aps preciate the music rendered to Con cord's music lovers by those who ap peared in the "beautiful" little opera, the "Merry Milkmaids." It was truly a group of merry maids; and the young men were equally as merry, although they were not so ex pressive or impressive. Korner cnjDKS LOncora should , organize a Dramatic Club. She has the talent and her citizens would give it good support, provided the benefits were qiven in the proper way as the "Merry Maids" was to the orphans and needful. - ' ' r : .-. ... - earner, in conversation with, a popular young lady in the "ciy, learned that the daily Standard' was very highly appreciated. She said she "always wanted tc see the p'per before tea; that she believed it helped her appetite," Her father, who is a kind old gentleman, stepped op and said, in a grave tone and with a downc8t eyes : "Thank the Loid she doesn't get two." Korner knows a man in Concord who, beats the record on stinginess. He strains every pint to save, ' and j he actually etrairf kia buttermilk. We are sure of b access an d victory. Thanksgiving turkeys arein tli market. This November wind is catting. Look out for sore lips. Korner comee today and tells of the spirits and witches that are close to the city. v Our devil chased himself around a block this morning after a rabbit. Your attentions called to the new advertisement of Ludden & Bates. It was suggestive of the good things past peaches in town Fri day. The political situation all oyer the State is in favor of Democratic vic tory, far surpassing that of two years ago.

Trade this fall is good an i the merchants who advertise in tbe Standard receive a good portion. We'will have in onr weeirty edi tion this week a half-page adver tisement for the Lowa Co. This firm believes, in judiciou: advertising, therefore they are prospering. Salisbury's musical circle have in their possession the books preparing to render to their c.tizens "The Merry Milkmaids." We wish them success. Mrs. Dr. HN Wells, of Clvde.. Haywood county, is visiting at her father's, Mr. W A Smith, Her many friends here are delighted to see her.

Bci-tots KraaUS, MODIFIED PRESCRIPTION. A Kcinody Or.ly Good fur r.atlcr.ta TV he Aro Upholsterers. Mr. Oscanyan, in his book, "Tho Sul tan and Ills People," says thrit a Turk ish physician wns called to v?oit a mat who was very ill of typhus fever. The doctor considered the caso hopeless, but prescribed for the patient and took hit. leave. Tho next day, in passing' by, In Inquired of a servant at tho door if his master was dead. "Dead!" was tho reply; "no, he L' much better." Tho doctor hastened upstairs to ob tain the solution of tho miracle. - "Why," said the convalescent, T was consumed with thirst, and I drw.k a pailful of the juice of pielilcd cabbajro." "Wondcrfull" quoth tbo doctor; and out came the tablets, on which ho miwle this inscription "Cured of typhus lover, Mehemed Agba, an upholst-ercr, by drinking' a pailful of picUled cab bage jaice." Soon after the doctor wo3 called to another patient, a yag'hlifcg'eo, or dealer tn embroidered handkerchiefs, who war Buffering from the samo malady. lie forthwith prescribed "a pailful of pickled cabbago juice. On calling the nest day to congratulate his patient on his recovery, ho was astonished- to be told that the man wan dead. In. his be wilderment ot these phenomena, frs came to tho safe conclusion, and dnlv noted it In his me-noranda, that "Al though in cases of typhus fever pickled cabbage juice is an efficient remedy, it ia not to be used unless tho patient W by profession an upholsteivr." ADRIFT ON THE OCEAN. Tho F.omarlcablo Voyage of u Deserted Schooner. Some of the caprices of the ocean are Inexplicable. llarch 31, 1801, nn American three-masted schooner, the Wyer G.

WE ARE DWINDLING AWAY. fir' 4,000 A. D. Ojfiiy Lilliputians Wil! inhabit tha Eaith. A Trench .statistician, who has been studying tho military and other records, with a view of de termining the height of men at different periods, has reached somu wondt 'i'f ui resui 1 s. A Jjreijchman is naturally an artist, even in figures. A German mijcht content bim;eifwith v. dry arithmetical compilation; but thin artist carries his statistics into the realm of history and of poetry, end even of prophecy, lie has not only solved some perplexing prob lems in regard to tho rcat of tho human race, but also is enablod :o calculate its future, and to deter mino tho exact period when m.ic vill disappear from the earth. The recorded facts extend over r.."arly three centuries. It is found that 1G10 tho average height oi men was 1.75 metres, or say f. feet 9 mches. Jn 1790 it vras ( feet (J inches, in it was L feet 5 inches and a fraction. At the present time it is 6 f-et S is-i inches. It is easy to deduce from tacre figures a rale of -regular and grad ual decline in 'human stature, and then upply this, working kick wards and forwards, to tho pat and' m the future. i!y this calcu lation it is ecTrminod that the etaturc of tho first men attained tho surprising average :fj0 feet S inches. The race had already deterior ated in the days of Og, while Gol iath was a ouito degenerate off spring of the giants. Coming down to litter times wo find that at tho begimiiiig of our era the average height of man was U feet, and iu the time of Charlemagne it was S feet 8 inches, a fact quito sutlkioiii.to acv.j-Li'.ii; for aio heroic deeds, of tho IVuuiius. 33 at the most astonishing result of this scientific study comes i'rom 'the-application of tho same iiiexorabis mvr ox diminution to the future.
