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. fin iJSN'r suit the Cabarrus who want to attend the i;ur that court comes at the ji - time.

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. will the: wr.- Te!l it Softly. 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. In an upper Hay street store is this legend: Since man to man is so un just, I do not know what man to trust; I've trusted many to my sor row : So pay to-day I'll trust to- THE RACKET STORE! morrow. 5 The Atchison Globo tells of a wife who has bluffed her hus band into the belief that she has heart disease, and is liable to drop dead if crossed in her wishes, and adds that she is the envy of all the other wives in town. .d A MOTHER TELLS HOW SHE SAVED DAUGHTERS LIFE. I am the mother of eight child ren und have had a great deal of experience v .lm medicines. Last summer my little daughter had tiie dysentery in its worst form. Yvo 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 Dinrrhoea Remedy 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 er's life. I am anxious for every mother to know what an excellent :nedleirc it is.

He is honorably discharged.

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 ical day to begin twelve hours after tho beginning of the civil day is nptto bo confusing.

There are three cases of small pox in Halifax County, says the correspondent to the Char lotte Observer, with a good deal of danger of a spread of the dis ease unless vaccination becomes goiiei:! and many had such bittei expe-'ionce with it last win ter as to claim that it is as bad as the disease. The disposition to look on the worst instead of tho best side of our fellowmen no doubt accounts in a great degree for the distrust we have of one another. What a good thing it would be if wo could have a correct balance struck every now and then be tween the good and the bod in order to see just how our several accounts ought to stand, and then, perhaps, more correct esti mation might be placed on men's character. -r-Durham Sun.
