Concord, N. C, Oct. 2.
A Rowan correspondent to the
Charlie Observer says he is
going to have a hen at the Stale
fair that is white on one side and
black on the other and challenges I
the world to equal it.
What's the matter with Hanna?
Why nothing if that Philadelphia
dispatch is reliable. A locomo

twenty feet into a field and did
not hurt her.
Gen. "Wheeler got a little taste
of war at Porac but there was
no opportunity of distinction as
tin1 enemy did not stand. We
shall expect little from him ti l

Many a man boasts of being
self made when other people

which to be proud.
Col. Carr a Candidate.
The Richmond Times gives
out an interview with Col. Julian
S Carr in which the latter leaves
no dou'jt as to his aspirations.
"Yes, I am a candidate for the
Senate to succeed Butler, and
am in the race to win," said Col.
Julian S Carr, of North Carolina,
at the Jefferson last night. ' 'I
have some fine men against me,"
he -ontinued, "there's P M Sim
mons, chairman of our State
Democratic Committee, and a
thorough-going, astute politic
ian; ex-Governor Jarvis, twice
Governor of North Carolina,
and a former Senator, and Mayor
A !1 Waddoll, of Wilmington,
who has also served in Congress
and whose part in the late trou
bles give him a good place in the
hearts of the white peoplo.
"If I win, I shall feel that I
have been greatly complimented,
for all the other aspirants are
high-toned Christian gentlemen,
who .nand well with the people.
"Our campaign will not be
characterized by a display of
acrimonious feeling certainly
so far as I am concerned. My
opponents are my personal
r.OBBED THE GRAVE.
A startling incident, of "which Mr.
John Oliver of Philadelphia, was the
subject, is narrated by him as follows:
I was in a most dreadful condition. My
g.kin was almost yellow, e3Tes sunken,
torque coated, pain continually in back
and Fide?, no flppetite-gradually grow-1
ing weaker day by day. Three physi
cians had givan me up Fortunately, a
sriend advised trying Electric Bitters:'
and to my great joy and surprise, the
first bottle made a decided improve
ment. I continued their use for three
weeks, and am now a well man. I know
thoy saved my life, and robbed the grave
of another victim." No one should fail
to try them. Only SOcts., guriateed, at

Statistics in the War Depart
mcut at Washington show that
the foreigners and negroes alone
in the Federal army during the
war largely outnumbered the
whole confederate forces from
hrst to last. The figures are:
Union army, 2,700,000 men, of
whom 500,000 were foreigners
and 178,000 negroes, the for
eigners and negroes combined
making 678,000. The Confed
erate army numbered less than
Commenting on this the Alex
andria Gazette well says :
''The more that is known
about the war the more glorious
appears the magnificient heroism
and endurance of the men who
wore the gray. That they should
have defeated in so many bat
tles and withstood for four
years an army so large that even
the foreigners and negroes in it
outnumbered thorn, leaving out
lion native born soldiers, is al
most incredible, but facts cannot
be successfully refuted."
This is all the more striking,
too, when it is remembered thai,
j according to the Pension Office
; statistics over 600,000 Northern
soldiers were disabled, thereby
showing that every one of the
600, 000 left his mark. Richmond
The Tegroin Southern Illinois.
Rev. R P Howell, presiding
elder of the Murphy sboro Dis
trict, in a private note to the ed
itor of the Advocate, speaks of
the recent troubles in which six
negroes were killed at Carter
ville in that State and says:
"There is great excitement all
over the county, and while I
write this the blue-cqats of the
State Guards are on guard here
in Marion. Only the last few
years have negroes been al
lowed in Carterville at all There
are several towns here in South
ern Illinois where they are not
allowed to live. When Bishop
Lane came to our Conference at
Nashville we could not get a
place for him to stay, and the
pastor of the M. E. Church,
South, had to take him." If
these things had occurred in the
South, they would have been
blazoned abroad Jwith scare
headlines in all the Northern pa
pers. As, however, they hap
pened "beyond the Tweed," they
aro not receiving any groat
amount of attention. The
"Northwestern Advocate'' ol last
weok does not even allude to
them. But if they do not escape
the notice" of the oditor, we shall
expect that journal to speak out
in thunder tones this week.
Thirteen Women Drowned on Shipwreck
A Montreal dispatch of the
29th tells a sad story of the
loss of the "Scotsman" on the
shores of the straits of Bell
Isle. The ship struck rocks and
was destroyed. One boat load of
woman capsized and thirteen
The captain and crew, it is
said, behaved gallantly, but there
was on board a set of toughs that
robbed and plundered while the
work of rescue was going on
with might. Much suffering was

Filipinos Bring in Fourteen.
The Filipinos made good their
promise last Saturday morning
in delivering fourteen American
prisoners under flag of truce at
Augeles. Gen. Alejandrino and
and two other officers entered
tiie American lines and were es
corted to Manilla. Strangely
enough the men say they were
well treated after a short period
at first. They came in wIl
dressed in dight blue Filipino
uniforms with canvass shoes and
hats. In prison they received
rice only at first but upon their
complaint they were given cof
fee, hot rolls, chicken, pork, veg
etables and wine. Beside they
received an allowance of twenty
cents a day for tobacco and
luxuries. On Sept. 17 there was
a feast and AgninakTo gave each
prisoner 4.00. Eater each re
ceived 3.50. They were not
required to work.
The truce party said that
twenty-live more would be re
leased soon. Gen. Otis tele
graphs that Gen. Garcia, the
commander of the troops in
eastern Mindanao in a commu
nication dated the 12th expressed
a desire to turn the .government
over to the United States and
surrender the insurgent's arms.
A MOTHER TELLS HOW SHE
SAYED DAUGHTERS LIFE.
I am the mother of eight child
ren and hare had a reat deal ot
experience with medicines. Last
summer my little daughter had
the dysentery in its worst form.
Wo thought she would die. I
tried everything I could think of.
I saw by an advertisement in our
paper that Chamberlain's Colic,
Cholera and Diarrhoea Remedy
whs highly recommended and
sent and got a bottle at once. It
proved to. be one of the very best
medicines we ever had m the
house. It saved my little daught
er's life. I am anxious for every
mother to know what an excellent
oiediciDe it is. Had I known it at
first it would have saved me a
great deal of anxietv and my
little daughter much euffering.
