Geii. Otis should be superseded.
We have too much of a sense of
fairness o engage in popular

that we know whereof we speak.
Whi!- not always agreeing

RAILROADS FOR MT. PLEASANT.
The Manufacturers' Record for
October 20th, says that Messrs.
AC Wilcox & Co., 332 Drexel
Building, Philadelphia, are pre
paring to float bonds to extend
the Moore County and Western
Railroad from its present termi
nus to Concord. The extension
will be seventy miles in length
and the bonds will represent
815,000 per mile.
The same issue of the Record
says, "The people in Cabarrus
and Rowan counties have made
a proposition to the Southern
Railway Co. to give the right of
way and grade for a branch line
between Gold Hill and Mount
Pleasant if the railroad company
will lay the track. The line will
be about nine miles in length
It wTill be seen from this that
Mt. Pleasant has two roads in
fair prospective grasp, for it has
alwavs been understood that the
Moore County and "Western will
run a branch track to Mt. Pleas
ant. The necessity for a railroad to
Alt. Pleasant is growing more
apparent since it is to be well in
the line of manufacturing towns.
Let both roads come. Even as
wTe write, we see learns loauea
with cotton to supply the Kindley
mill, and soon there will be an
other mill there.
MAKES A STAR IX TI'EIR CROWN.
Henry Smith, of Coffee county,
Georgia, is in jail in Winston.
He has a card in the Sentinel
thanking Mrs. Cozart and Mrs.
Fultz, and others for such mani
festations of Christian spirit in
their ministrations to him that
ho is won to the cause and will,
at the expiratian of his in

water on the market and has
the endorsement of the most
noted physicians of the country
as to its superiority over all
others. Read what the noted
Dr. John Hey Williams, of Ashe
ville, has to say for Harris
Asheville, N. C, April 24,. 1893.
An extended clinical use of Har
ris Lithia Water .prompts me to
the statement that I regard it as
one of the best if not the best,
Lithia Water known to the pro
fession. In the condition of
Phosphatic Urine, its action is
marvellous. Its use in the Rheu
matic and County Diseases afford
me more comfort than either the
Buffalo or Londonderry Waters.
Very truly vours,
JOHN HEY WILLIAMS, M. D.
We guarantee that one glass of
Harris Lithia carbonated water
will relieve any case of indiges

is authorized to refund you the
money, or if taken after each
meal will cure the most stubborn
case of indigestion. Why suf

M L Marsh,
Airent for Concord.
Put in a word for the Consti

opportunity presents. It is one
of the most important questions
ever brought before the people
of North Carolina. Let's give it
the biggest majority ever rolled

Young Lady Drowned.
A Wilmington dispatch of the
17 tlx says Miss Katie Cause was
stx'olling with a group of chil
dren. At the bank of a mill pond
some miles from the city, she
dropped her purse and returning
from a little way off was sepa
rated from the children. They
heard a splash, and found the
lady drowning in 15 feet of wa
ter. It will never be known how
the sad affair occurred. She was
very much beloved.
