NOT MUCH INSANITY.
Edward Flanagan, a pris
oner 'r. Atlanta jail and con
cern ;:t.-d io bo hanged for murder,
made a bold dash for liberty last
Saturday morning as tho guard
him his breakfast.
:d rotten hold of a knife,
taking up a little child
ol the sheriff's, held it to his
busom with one hand while he
flourished the knife with the
other. He had to pass the room
of the sheriff and his wife, who,
iitria-iiig the, screams, of their
chiiii. j an out not standing in
tiwe of tho knife under parental
soli ... iv. They held Flanagan
whow: s then driven to his cell at
;lie ( ' o! tho sheriff's pistol.
He lias been respited and his
o.xecu' 'U dlp.yed on account of
a plea of insanity. This rather
spoils the insanitv niea.
m il S"r;jIEHS Nal SAVAGES.
Gen. Fredrick Funston, who is
oy tlie way going hack to the
.Philippines on a commission as
HrigLc . jv General, said in a lec
ture recently in Chicago:
''Some people returning have
spoken of the brutality of our
soldiers in the Philippines. I say
to them that the v are unmitigated
liars. Our soldiers never
touched the wounded enemy
except to drag them lout of the
fire into the shelter."
Wo have- never believed that
our soldiers would turn savage
so quickly as some would have
it. Brave fighters are usually
humane, truthful and honorable.
Our friend, the Salisbury Sun,
qotes what the Standard said
about no opportunity to see ad
niral Dewey tomorrow. It heads
the squib "Poor Concord" and
adds "Our little neighbor should
move about twenty miles north
of its present location." Now as
we understand it, Salisbury
vrould do as well to move 22
miles south so far as getting to
see Dewey tomorrow goes and
infinitely better on other ac
counts. We commend our stal
wart sister, however, to whatever
comfort there is in "something
just as good."
The Scientific American says
that in British Columbia there
have been found a natural soap
mine and paint mine. The soap
mine yields a washing compond
containing borax and soda quite
equal to the ordinary washing
powders. So old mother earth
furnishes the dirt to make us, the
pain, to beautify half the race at
least and with it all the soap
with which to annihilate us.

following to say of a famous na
tive of Cabarrus:
"J N Ingram, a well known

is the strongest Natural Lithia
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 dl ;i icl use of Har
ris Lithia Water prompts me to
the statement that 1 regard it as
one of the best if not the bestr
Lithia Water knovn 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 yours,
JOHN HEY WILLIAMS, M. D.
Wo guarantee that one glass of
Harris Lithia carbonated wrater
will relieve any case of indiges
tion in one minute or our agent
is authorized to refund you the
money, or if taken after each
meal will cure tlie most stubborn
case of indigestion. Why suf
fer when you.have the guarantee?

THE RACKET STORE!
The Richmond Dispatch gives
an account of a holiness meetincr
in Kent county of that State
which was begun on -Sunday
by -the holiness, sanctified
preacher abusing those who did
not take his way till a Methodist
preacher present called him
down. A serious affair was
narrowly averted. We'd rather
risk getting along with a man
who does sin than one who does
not in his own estimation.
