CONCORD, AUGUST 15, 1895.

Colonel W C P Breckinridge an
nounces that he is out of politics.
U& will never again apply for or ac
sept a public position.
We have no desire to recall the J
siory of the colonel's downfall, says
Atlanta Constitution, but the

itafcon in it which should be heeded.

To he personal, the request was
that a street be opened through the
property of Mr. P B Fetzer. The
rown has already done much street
opening thre, and neglected other
parts of the town. But in this con
nection the Standard wants to say
ih&i Mr, Fetzer never makes an un
just request and his proposition was
fair and businessslike; and if there
is any man in Concord that deserves
special privileges, Mr. Fetzer cer
tainly does, for he has, in a great
That the board of town commis
sioners did not grant the petitionj
has been criticised by a few. There
are two sides to all questions.
The west end or Corbin street is
in a miserable condition now, and
winter will find it, as it did last
year, in a more miserable shape.
But the Board, through its authori
ties, does nothing to it nor can they.
There are other places that need at

for attention, not on account of the
lack of interest but for the lack of

the milk of the cocoanut.
Russet rubbers to wear over russet
shoes are a novelty.
Manners should bespeak the man,
independent of fine clothing. The
general does not need a fine coat.

The new bicycle ordinance is a be

seal the political fortunes of the
town fathers in doom But the
measure was prtcipiiated not by the
bicyclists but by a fkw of them who
rode reckless ana without tuich

a hardship on those who know hov

Concord is running ahead in the
cotton manufacturing business. She
comes under the wire always moie
than a nose ahead. Oar mills are
using about 55 or 60 bales daily,
and if the railroad gives the desired
encouragement the proposed, new
mills will increase this consumption
to 75 or 80 bales. There's not
another such town as Concord under
the heavens !
Little is heard nowadays of Wil
iani H English, of Indianapolis,who
was the Democratic candidate If or
Vice President on the Hancock
ticket in 1880, but Mr. English will
be heard from soon as the historian
of Indiana. He has been engaged
tor ten years in the work of writing
the history of that State, and has
expended $50,000 for historical docu.
ments and in salaries of assistants.
Mr. English being worth from $4,
000,000 to $5,000,000, can well afford
the out'ay. He is now 73 years old
and enjoys good health
Complete Recovery by the Use of
" Some years ago, as a result of too
close attention to busiiioss, my health
failed. I became weak, nervous, was
unable to look after my interests, ami
manifested all the symptoms of a de
cline. I took three bottles of Ayer's
Sarsaparilla, began to improve at once,
ami gradually increased my weight from
one hundred and twenty -live to two
hundred pounds. Since then, I and my
family have used this medicine when
needed, and wo ar all in the best of
health, a fact which we attribute, to
Ayer's S;irsaparilla. I believe my chil
dren would have been fatherless to-day
had it not been for Ayer's Sarsaparilla,
of which preparation I cannot ny too
much." II. O. ITinsox, Postmaster and
l lanter, Kinard's, S. C.
