Lincoln, the great emancipator,
whom the assassin shot, drew large
crowds to look upon his cold re
mains. Of him the newspapers had
declared "he died."
At the City Hall in New York,
crowds were trying to get a last look
of him, who received the surrender
of the great and christian Lee,before
his body was put out of sight till the
morning of the resurection. What
an active life Grant had led, yet the
time came when it was said "he
died' When I first became old
enouqh to notice I knew hundreds
of men fifty years old. Now it can
only be eald "and he died." The
human race is born to die. Die
they will, die thev must. Though
they haye nothing to do with their

Life is too :hort to quarrel; too

In the words of the text "she died.''
The dead are in the majority. Those

Every citizen knows well how. they
have heretofore been entertained by
the Minstrels the Tar Heels. Their
gags are all new, their. songa and
choruses new and pretty and the
orchestral part of the show is un
usually good. We say this because
we know it to be so. Go out Jo

laugh. It is worth the price of ad

Miss Steva Dodson, a returned
Missionary toChina, who is spends
ing some time in the city, made an
interesting talk Sunday afternoon at
all Saints' Episcopal church. Miss
Dodson told of the customs and
peculiarities (to us) of the chinaman,
how the boys and girls were sepa
rated from birth until of marriage
air e age, when the young men would
be allowed to peep through a curtain
or partitioQ to select from a number
the one he wished for a wife, and
how all the females of humble par
entage that were i.et adopted by per
sons able to rear jn, were thrown
into a ravine and ' .,;. away vw.h.
