These vegetable parasites in
cotton, melons, cabbage, ma

observable only by microscopes,
but they produce a sickliness and
drooping in the plants where
formerly all was ?obust growth.
The discovery having been
made the remedy is being sought.
No cure has yet been found, but
the evil is almost certainly
traced to the contiuued cultiva
tion of the same crop. Agricul
turists are warned that not ro

inviting this disease of the soil,
and once lodged there is no rem

It will be hard, but it will be the
strongest and best stimulus to
general education that North
Carolina has ever known.

Ever and anon some one comes
along bearing the name of
preacher, possessing some nat

necessary for a pastor of a con

judgments of churches and pas

appetites gulp his rash censo

They are soon off, and when
they're gone the community is
only the harder to reach by reg

Such character, it seems, is
one John Dull, hailing from
Iowa, who dropped down rt
Southport recently and went to
preaching at the 'Tabernacle."
The Southport Standard says his
language was extreme and he
became so obnoxous that he was
a nuisance to the community,
which appealed to the mayor.
Seeing that disorder and violence
would follow if the intelligence
and refinement of the commu
nity were further insulted by
Dull, he was ordered to take his
departure promptly and accepted
