It seems that a short interview
between President McKinloy and
Admiral Dewey caused an order
for five war vessels to proceed to
the Philippines on short notice.
They are the Brooklyn, Nash
ville, .'ew Orleans, Bancroft and
rr. I no reasons lor uiebo
' so's of 'good size and power
t") that the smaller vessels are
expo I to the late of the Ur
daneut. They must do a good
amount oi patroling alone and
the larger vessels only only are
safe. It seems Dewey's ideas and
th..v conn'; with every body now.

The Twentieth Century.
The Scientific American con
considers it necessary to advise
its readers that the twentieth
century begins with January 1,
1901, and not with Janury 1,
1900, as some of them suppose.
The Scientific American is un
doubtedly correct, but it is
strange how many persons and
intelligent persons, too, will
stand you down that the
nineteenth century will end with
the last day of December, of this
year, and that the first moment
of January, 1900, will be the be
ginning of the twentieth century.
The fact that the great Paris
exposition is to be held next
year has increased the errone
ous belief that the twentieth cen
tury begins with the year 1900,
but the Paris exposition will cel
ebrate the close of the nineteenth
century, rather than the opening
of the twentieth.
The twentieth . century will
open on a Tuesday and closo on
a Sunday. It will have the
groatest number of leap-years
possible for a contury twenty
four. The year 1904 will bo the
first ono, then every fourth year
after that to and including the
year 2000. February will three
times have five Sundays; in 1920,
194S and 1970.
The twentieth century will con
tain 30,525 days, which lacks one
day of being exactly 5,218 weeks.
The middle day of the century
will be January 1, 1951.
Several announcements are
made of changes to be inaugu
rated with the opening of the
new century. The first of im.
portance is that Russia will
adopt the Gcogian calendar.
This will be done by omitting
thirteen days, the amount of
error that will have aeeu.. uh.'ted
after the close of February IDuO.

The Fayetteville correspondent
to the Charlotte Observer says:
It is not unusual' to see in
stores the cold, crude printed
announcement, without ' 'frills,"
that you must "down with the
dust" if you wan,t the goods; but
it is refreshing to the customer
to have this injunction softened
by the liquid rhythm of poetry.

Yvo thought she would die. I
tried everything I could think of.

paper that Chamberlain's Colic,

was highly recommended and
sent find got n bottle at once. It
proved to be ono of the very best
medicines wo ever had in the
house. It t:oTed my little daught

Charlotte from the Philippines,

one i i the shoulder and ono a
compound fracture of the hip.
He is honorably discharged.
Mr. Everett was in the thickest

talk very interestingly of Phillip

stead of both, according to the
dual -yslem now in vogue in
that country and in Greece. The
other important announcement
is that it is not at all unlikely
that the astronomical day, which
now begins at noon of the civil
day, will begin with the civil day
at midnight. The present
method of having the astronom

after tho beginning of the civil
