r,f h s I. or more a tale has been
dotting over the city to the pflect
that a white man, assisted by his
f- :iu wife, arrived here from
Gin ncboro, who have been meeting
-Ait!: i he class ot negroes that com-p-e
the Holy Diciples . denomina
cf Chr'stmns and who observe
nd ncrship or. Saturday instead of
Sunday, 'ir. d who, when greeting;
their brethren and sisters salute them
with Christ-like caresses, sucking
from their large, juicy lips the
ve..-l essence cf love and preach
that the day was not far distant
when whites and negroes would
make a common practice of marry
'.. -o;d i;. Lei mingling ith one an
other and h. aching social equality.

membership of the

that there is a kissing game m their
religion or that he teaches or

Whether the statement of Hamp

reason I am here in your city. I am
not here to contend with anyone
about what they belieye, but simply
take the good old Bible and follow
it and teach it. And, although
may not see and believe a3 others in
all things, I realize that others have
as good right to their opinions as
myself. I would be glad to have a
good friendly talk with any or all

Mt. Tleasaxt, June 24. The
departure of the students of the
College and Seminary is never
wished for. Truly, if we could pre
vent it, we would not haye it thus;
fo'r it cuts short our association with
th'ose whom we almost regaid
asja part of U3, It also makes us
feel quite lonesome for atime, but
this feeling gradually wears away
when work begins to press upon us.
From circumstances, which we
know were not deceptive, we feel
confident that the hearts of some
will be made glad quite frequently
Master Gurley Moose is a busy
little fellow these days. He is
hauling brick for hia father, who
will in a short while, commence
building a drug store. We hope
nothing will interfere with his plans.
Col. Shimpock has not been do
ing eo well for several days pst.
He was troubled with nausea, which
considerably weakened him. He has
borne up well under bffliction, baling
a degree of vitality of which he
t e-ms not to be conscious.
Two of the professors of North
Carolina College have been highly
and deservedly honored
Southern Colleges Rqanjoke and
Newberry. Roanoke conferred the
degree of D. D., on President J D
Shirey, who as preacher and theo
ligian, has ! no superior inNorh
Carolina Synod. Newberry con
ferred the dlegree of Ph. D., upon
Prof H T J Ludwig, whose ability
as a mathematician has long ago
been rcGOgnized beyond the limits
of his own State. We are proud of
haviDg the privelege of calling these
gifted men doctors.
The following is almost a dv!!y
occurrence, and always a courct of
like playing to-day. My mind is on
Doc "!et the board. I can beat
you two best out of three."
W, Cr.--You can't do it. I am
not interested in checks to day, bu
am not afraid to play with yon."
W. G. gets the board end he r.r d

blocks are rapidly moved, the object
of each being to trap the other :nd
reach the kingdom. Thug th game
proceeds, till at length W. (..
somewhat excited, makes a bad
iiioye and the doctor jumps to the
kingdom. .W. C. now begins to be
doubtful as to the result, and occa
sionally cries out "What shall I do
to b-j saved?" One of the onlooks
er?5 sympathizing with him, points
out la move .hich gives W. G.
The doctor as desirous of win-1

"TVes it hurt

these cause general laughter in
which W. G. tokes part, and it
usually has the tffect cf breaking up
the game. It u b ird to say which
of these two is the better player.
We an co did dream tne following:
TluU Bryan i'ji hh I'.Nwers
Had all the jrold biurs driven
From t ity, lown and country,
To some more peaceful haven.
They swore eternal vengeance
Against the yellow metal;
And it was lawful only,
To use the silver shekel.
They made this Bryan president.
In him all power was vested;
And on a chair of silver
His corporosity rested.
He married a silver woman.
It was a siiver marr'alre;
And all his silver babies"
He rolled in a silver carriage.
Just hre my dream was ended.
I did my pillow hug;
For I was strangely worried
Bv a cranky 'silver-bug."
