The weather is in the ex
treme of changefulness. The
present influence of Jupiter
and Mars on ihU mundane
sphere has its equal only in
that of a sugar trust lobyist
on the United States Senate :
It has chilled and dampened
everything save the fervor of
a woman suffrage advocator and .the
aidor of a Fusion Legislature. As
for me and my house we are hoping
that the heg aLd hominy, inter-
spersed here and there with that
hirsuite appendage, in common par-
ar.ee known as rabbit, will prolong
its stay until the fitful season ia
over. Hog and heminy, unless in-corp-M-aled
with some culinary vege
tal;1!', i: very monotonous diet. My
oft repeated failures to exchange at
uuy!h'.!g 11' e an cqiul value car
rriu - and partri.l oes precludes the
possibility of decorating my menu
card with that delicacy, quail pie.
This inability, v hich on my part is
neither wilful nor pi emed Hated.
subti;!Cts f"om this otherwise appe
tite persuader, all its economical
and homelike aroma : so we are
prone to resort to the domesticated
barnyard fowl for our lumaged
h:xuri'. The,, difference between
Trie two I may venture to say is about
a .i'.ii Mr. Cleveland's dis-t::.-'t!on
between gold and silver,
loth as to quality size. And I
might -dd taat the gold is ah out as
far out of my reach as the partridges.
Sometimt-s our plain, homely fare
iVIs in nloase t eu or charm the
palate. It even pulls upon our
uiucculo-membranous reservoir; then
we ha've Kcourte to that most nota
caticf )i:.g tscuieht, ihe
::!-ek ;a.dle apptudagtd opossum.
Lim- a opulistic campaigner this
mar.- quadruped is a nocturnal
r-rami.ulator and gathers his sus
v aatif- whilst others are wrapped
in th- Lams of Morphein or in,bed.
The procuring of this epicurian

-i-fiULCal and invigorating and
interesting. We smilingly boycott
tLv powder a: d lead trust meander
irth just after supper and the twi
light has disappeared, with no other
; paraphernalia than those necessary
i; xurits that adorn every well regu
iated householdan axe and a
hound then in the wee traa' hours
we return iadened with a noonday
m?al dangling from a split stick.
This trophy is as dear to us as a
senatorial seat is to a populist or the
ro Id reserve to Mr. Carlyle, not
merely for its intrinsic worth, hut
as an exponent of our discernment,
sagacity and expanded judgment in
dealing with the obstruse question of
supply and demand.
I begin to think we Tar Heels are
as changeable as this weather. We
have change on the brain. It has
become epidemic. Our heart throbs
'jome welling up from our in'most
recesses panting for change of diet,
change of 'air, .change of scenery,
change of climate and pocket change.
Last fall an attack of political
change permeated every nook and
corner of our governmental anatomy
and benold! that change hath
changed or abolished almost all
things. If as premeditated Thanks
iying day is annulled, . Stanly tur
keys will be a drug on the market.
"With fear and trembling" I am
looking for the introduction of an
act to change Sunday to a more con
venient day or congenial clime. I
sometimes think that even I ain,
Felix like, "almost persuaded' to be
a changling at least I have gone so
far aa to agree to give the boys a
helping hand in their infatuation
for change and giye the old common
wealth another political somersault
in..lS96. We will see many changes
ere then, but finance and tariff will
be to the f oi e. The, world will still
go round with the whirligig of time
and rich and poor, (one of which
ego sum) will hang on grasping with
many a heart ache for change.
"This troublesome, tangled skein of life,
With its longing and vain regrets,
Would blissful be if a man could live
Un the interest of hi9 debts."
I see that Mr. Parsons, of Hyde
county is the popular Populist poet
of the State Senate.
The l?cp and Pop collusion,
Was the office sector's dieam;
Now, the meiry song of fusion,
Is the poet Parson's iheme.
With petitions and counter peti
tions for a higher rate of taxation
for .raded schools and streets the
kicking about our fire fly lights

corporation out to grass of electing
commissioners by wards and sundry
other little things too tedious to
