Elizabeth Phifer Gibson, tu venerable relict of Dr. Edwin H Gibson died today (Thursday) ii o'clock a. m. at the age of years and some months, having been born in April 1812. SI u 4 was married in February 1533 and was bereaved of her husband after 37 years of matri HK.niiu! life. : She was the mother of six children. Her only daughter died in infancy. Two sons of manhood age preceded her to tln grave, viz: William and tleerge. Three sons now mourn the broken tie of a mother's com forting presence, viz. James C Gibson, J Phifer Gibson and Robert E Gibson. The deceased has on 3 living survivor of the parental home, a sister, Mrs. Bradshaw of New York. Mrs. Gibson was a devoted member of the Presbyterian church from early life and was regular in her attendance on the service tUl enfeebled by age. Of late years and up to Sept. 21st. 1698 there was a trio of aged landmarks in the town whose intellectual culture and congeniality of spirits drew them together and on occasions they Touhl sip the comfort there was ::i gi t ting together and rehearsing :) iiit'inorics of the past as such was seen in the light shining bright from the future through a :'u'ig and abiding faith. The people about them looked on in pleased meditation and in -creasing respect and veneration. On the date above noted Esq. R W Allison broke the trio and en tered upon faith's fruition. On April 8, 1S99 Mrs. Caroline Mc Donald entered the door to eternity's mystic domains while Mrs. Gibson was bidden to stay amid earthly environments till now. Who will say that today these kindred spirits are not again basking in the joys of a never endiug union while thrilled with the infinite conception of a triune God. The funeral will be held to-, morrow at 11 o'clock at the First Pr.hyterhm church by-Rev. W C Alexander, who will arrive to nurruw morning from Balti more. Bioivn Sells His Business.

On Wednesday there came near being a serious accident at what is called Crowoll's crossing below the railroad bridge. Dr. Pharr, Mr. Jno. Ervin and Miss Agnes Moss were in a buggy and were almost on the track when the northbound fast mail came dashing by them. While no one was hurt and no damage was done, it was an experience that makes one shudder to think of,: when death was so nigh. All of them jumped from the buggy quickly, when they realized how near the engine was to them. An Appeal Taken to Superior Court. On Wednesday afternoon be fore Esq. Pitts a case was tried wherein a party was suing the firm of R B Wilson & Co., of Richmond, which firm conducted the -bucket shop" here that made an assignment.

The Drummer Medium. Mr. George A Letford, the well known representative of II E Buck1 en, of Chicago, is again at the Orton. Mr. Letford is known as the "drummer medium," and last evening a representative of the Star saw him give a remarkable demon stration of his power as a medium. A well known Wil mington gentleman had a sitting and the medium told him of many occurrences in his past life, some of which he had for gotton but which he recalled after being given reminders that brought everything back to him. Ho even correctly told the gentleman certain things that he is contemplating for the future. Wilmington SLar. This is the gentleman of whom we spoke some time ago when he was here. Every newspaper office knows Geo. Letford and of his spiritualistic work. He is often consulted to foretell elec tions, dec's:ous, etc. by the aid of has spirits. What the Pounders Get. We see that the Jeffries Shakev prize fight pounded out about sSO,000 of wlrch 55 per cent weiu to the pugilisl , the tor ire! ;.ing 75 and the var- iquhslied 25 per cent. The I amounts stand 80,423 for the former and $10,141 for the latter. The smaller amount seems to pay pretty well for some brok- ribs and a banged, up coun- ( tenance i'Vllow endowed for C, THURSDAY, NOVEMBER" 9, May Find the Men TImt Blew nn the 1 Maine. Francis Atwater, the field manager of the Red Cross in Cuba, cabled to parties in Meri dian Conn, under date of the 16th saying: - "I have just learned from a well known' detective that he is now on the trail of the villains who blew up the. battleship Maine in Havana harbor, the wreck of which I can see as I send this dispatch. One of the scoundrels, according to : my in formation, claims he has not been treated right. He offers now to turn State's evidence if he is paid $15,000, to 20,000, so that he can live in seclusion in some foreign country the remain der of his life, as he well knows that in Cuba or the United States he never would be allowed to live an hour when it was known that he is one of tho dastardly cowards who caused the loss of so many lives. He claims that there were seven or eight in the plot, some of them now being in the United States and the others here. An Exchange of Plantations. It is not often that two men ex change their plantations in so short a time as did Mr. Ransom Blackwelder, who lives a few miles from here on the road leading to Cold Springs, and Mr. Geo.
