Race friction is. to be deplored and it may grow worse, wo hope it will not, but will soften as po litical irritations become less marked. Separation and isola t'on hardly promises much for the negro and we do not think the world can complacently look on the retrograde of any people. As 4o .o negro's aptness for .;Mf jrovcrnment and advance-; mout along tho Mnes of general progress Tlie New Bern Journal's history of James City, a negro settlement across the river from that city, seems a poiuter. The Journal says : ''Jam?:-; City became the resi dence of negroes when New Bern fell into the hands of the Federal army, drrinsr the Civil War, in 1 :0l "From Unit day until the pres ent time it has been solely in habited by negroes, with no white inlluence nearer than New Bern to effect their material or social development. "James City is not an incorpo rated town, but is under County government rule. Attempts to! secure a charter and make it a town have proven iauures, as the wrangle amonc: the negroos for 'first places' broke up all such attempts. 4iIi:s officers, constables, mag istrates and postmaster are re groes. Its population all told, has always been from two to three thousand. "As a result of the war, many of its people becc me pensioners upon the government, and it is estimatod that the pensions paid into James City by the govern-' meat Lav'o amounted to $100 000 .-rince L.ie war.

An exchange says: "Oeorgo Kniglu, who has served forty imniv nf m life sentence in the Maine penitentiary, has out lived every one who had any thing to do w-th his trial, tho judge, i uomeys. court officers -and witnesses, all being dead. He is now eighty yca-s old and hale and hearty for one of his years." This would seem to say, if you want to live long, get into the Maine penitentiary. . If that French court-martial wants to gel beyond censure it must get off the earth. Gov. Goebel seems to be amid distressing ojvironments. Senator Blackburn has cut stitches with him and Brya i, Altgeld and Stone have come to the understanding that they will stay out of the Kentucky polUics. A Paris dispatch of the 11th says Drey-us w;il be pardoned by ac, ion of the French cabinet on next Tuesday, the 19ih. Par- don, which implies forgiveness :or crime seems about the next best ihrg to jus. ce lor an in nocent prisoner. As there has been a good deal of discussion in the papers as to the correct proxunciaJc i of the name of tne Hebrew martyr, Drey -us, Mr. J P Caldwell, -the editor of the Charlotte Obse.wer, whoso mot o is to find out what is right above everything and stick to it, has gone to France to seit.ie the maiSe T5rs is r:ght and we wish hhn a pleasant Q a d 1?nio ,v!;lo T, f , .

I am e mother of eitrht child ren HDd nave had a ioat deal of experience with medicines. L it summer my little daughter had the dysentery in its worst form. We thought sho would diu.

My brother Will, ho use to be The nicest kind of girl,' Ho wore a little dress like me And had his hair in curl. We played with dolls and tea sets then, And every kind of toy; But all these good old times are gone W.U1 turned into a boy. Mamma has made lvm liUle suits, Wiih pockets in the pants, And cut off his yellow curls And sent them to my aunts, And Will ho was so pleased, I belie vo, Ho almost jumped w.'th joy, But I must own I didn't like Will turned into a boy! And now he plays with horrid tops I don't kuow how to spin, And marbles that I try to shoot, But never hit nor win, And leap-frog I can't give i 'back" Liko Charlie, Frank or Roy. a Oh, no one knows how bad feel Smce w 1 has turned a boy! I havo to wear frocks just tho same And now they're mostly white. I have io sit and just be good Wh' 'e W'U can climb and fight, But I must keep my dresses nice And wear my hair in curls; And. woi'se oil, worstest thing of ai' I have to sdiy a girl! Selected. We can't understand it, that all of a sudden, dispatches say that Dreyfus is hopelessly ill and are measuring the limit of his life to a few months. It comes with such suddenness that unless the great strain upon him has produced a fearful collapse, we feel hope oil that tho dispatches are in error. We wan I him to live to see himself completely ex onerated from the treacherous charges made by bad men. gS3 Tartar Has Sailed.
