TII ISSUE IX TI1E STATE.
The threecornered Gubernatorial
right in North Carolina is waxing
very interesting as it progresses and
speculation is rife as to what the
result will be. There are plenty of
people who are equally"confident of
the election of Watson, of Guthrie
and of Kussell respectively. For
oar part we would rather witness
the elpction of Hon. Cyrus B Wat
son as Governor of North Carolina
than that of any other candidate
before the people, whether on the
State or National ticket. We have,
however, apprehended that the Re
publicans, especially the colored
voters, will not stand by Russell,
but will at the final bidding of their
leaders, when Russell's eleotiou is
f j and to be an impossibility, goto!
Guthrie in order to defeat the Demo
catic candidate. We trust, bow
ever, that this wil1 not be the case,
and we also hope that the bare possis
bility of it will weld the Democrats
of the State closer together on Mr.
Watson, and that ;hey will let none
of their differences on the national
issues divide them on the State
ticket. If there is one thing ihat
we place above another it is the im
portance that the tff iirs of this State
shall be conserved by such men as
have for years past made Democratic
government a credit and an honor to
this commonwealth. It is higher
than free coinage and all other
panaceas, and we hope there will be
no halting or faltering among the
Democracy which has Heretofore
kept North Carolina in safe hands.
We clip the above with pleasure
and can say amen I to our contempo
rary's views aa to the importance of
our gubernatorial and legislative
tickets. And while we greatly de
sire Democratic triumph, we are
hopeful of the result of the Novem
ber election. The fusion of the
Populists and Republicans is very
uncertain and if effected the result
will be equally uncertain. The
combination stuck like a leach to
a fellows shin two years ago. Small
pieces of pie were thought better
than none ; but the greed grows and
there are dements of discord this
year that do not promise auch un
animity; in fact dishonorable, jeal
ous, spiteful, scheming combina
tions against a cause that commends
itself to all the better classes of good
citiz ens are apt to drop soon. We
know of no Democrats that are
going to the Populists or Republic
cans this year, while it is a certain
ty that some, at least, if not quite a
good number are going to return to
L)?mocracy. Then too, th2re was
a stay at Lome class two years ago
much larger than there will prob
ably be this year. With the fusion
record two years ago ana the great
national issues to ex site a full vo'e
we should win against any combi.

Mica I leitis of JforlSi Carolina.
The wild and apparently worth
less mountain region around Bakers
ville, N. C, is the main source of
mica for the United States. Mica
mining is one of the greatest indus
tries in North Carolina, and has
yielded fortunes to those engaged in
it. Mica is found in all sorts of
blocks, of various thicknes3ea and
shapes, and can be split up and re
split until it becomes the thin, trans
parent flexible wafer of commerce
This material is by nature embedded
in or scattered through the felspar
in masses large or small, close to
gether or fax apsrt, and is blasted
from the rock3 by means of dyna
mite, the purer veins being found
between the walls of siate. The
average size is about 4 by 6 inches,
although rare sheets of 2 by 8 inches
are sometimes found. The electrical
industries are large consumers of
mima, it being invariably used as an
insulating material on all the high
voltage armitures and for various
other purposes. Mining Gazette.

A well known business man lo
catedin the Columbia building in
Kansas Chy, Kans., has coined a
new explanation of the meaning of
1G to 1. The corner in front of that
building is the favorite spot for
would-be saviors of the country to
congregate and argue the financial
question, much to the disgust of the
tenants in the building. A few
days ago thi3 gentleman while pusho
itig his way through the crowd of
agitators, was stopped by one and
asked if he knew what 1G to 1 meant.
"Yes," replied he. 4kIt means 16
d n fools standing on the corner
tilkiug politics to one man trying to
earn an honest living."
The crowd caught on and in an
instant it moved to another corner.
Do YouUse It?
It's the best thing for the
hair under all circumstances.
Just as no man by taking
thought can add an inch to
his stature, so no preparation
can make hair. The utmost
that can be done is to pro
mote conditions favorable to
growth. This is done by
Ayer's Hair Vigor. It re
moves dandruff, cleanses the
scalp, nourishes the soil in
which the hair grows, and,
just as a desert will blossom
under rain, so bald heads grow
hair, when the roots are nour
ished. But the roots must be
there. If you wish your hair
to retain its normal color, or
if you wish to restore the lost
tint of gray or faded hair use
