' THIS PAPER
WANT OF CAPITAL.
|Vp have said before thai while North
Garolipa nocda capital, her greatest
want it enterprise, ami, we see it no
place more manifest, than in our sifter
cities Greensboro, mid Winston, (no
doubt but they will think us quite pre
sumptive to say so,) both aie prosperous,
growing, young eitics now up to the
'' in (iiost tilings, but as it seems
to us do not look far enough ajiefd, but
#eem content, to vie with each other.
What docs Winston, Greensboro, Dur
ham, Charlotte, and such growing places
expect to do in a few years, with their
rapidly increasing population' railroads
are passing out all aides, small towns
are springing up on every road to carry
pff their trade, their tobacco factories
are good so far as they go ; but do not
j£ve employment to their many hands
ioag enough in the year, other smaller
markets will take off a part of these in
pUininer. What we want (in onr opin
ion) is for these places to look a little
further ahead, start other industries,
that will give employment to our our
tens of thousands of idlers twelve months
in the year.
We have the raw material here in
North Carolina for maniifaoturios that
will give employment not only to our
pwu tens of thousands, but thousands
from other States. Come, you man with
big, hard dollars, locked up in your
•afe.o, cot loose, throw open the doores,
and tee if you cansot do something with
yonr money, that will pay you, and at
the same time, benefit your city, or
State. Wo want to live to see one real,
live, wide awake, manufacturing city
>■ N, r th Caq>lina. where the small boy,
fir girl, and the gi ay headed inafnuiy, or
daddy, may have employment every
month in the year, not leaving out the
able bodied of either sex, or color. Sal
em-Winston, Greensboro, Durham,
Charlotte, not forgetting Raleigh, eith
er have the location, being something of
central points between cotton and tobac
eo, both powerful staples, while each
has the coal-cu ouc side, with the very
finest iron ores on the other, fwc only
had enterprise enough to get them to a
central point, Stokes is a siijsll county,
but she can furnish the magnetic ore, 50
fo 65 per cent metallic iron, hemctite,
and manganese, to manufacture all the
steels rails the whole State will need
for uiany years to come. Stokes has
the raw material, but hat) pothing else !
has not ppterprise to follow one of her
veins of coal twenty feet frirn the sur
face, or uncover her 3, 5, S, or 10 feet
veins of iron, that capitalists may sec
thejii, though it is known exactly where
they ape, just where their daddysof our
tpbaceo markets left them, when the
low priee* at which rolled iron som
menced selling, stopped the forges, and
pre only covered by the loose dirt which
the rains and freeses have thrown in.
We have been growling, grumbling,
fretting, fuming, saying that nature had
done is much for Stokes county, as she
had for any county under the sun with
the single exception of giving |)S a man,

lty}tcli|tfl«, JJoteheads, Grahams of old
are gone, gone over the river, and will
not return until the tide eomes id, when
we will not need great furnaces, rolling
mi Is, and cotton factories.
Many of our places have their local man
bat we want a Slate man, who will oea
ter his energies to one point, while he
reaches oat and grasps the four corners
of our great State and draws tbem to a
common oenter, ppak'iog every body feel,
that he or she is interested. We want
one greft manufacturing city. We want

Providence has certainly smiled on ,
the people of our lands this year and f
especially old North Caroling. The (
oldest citixens cannot recall a single ,
vear of their lives when a more abun- (
dart crop of every kind of veget'on has c
been gathered from the ground. Each j
and every season has not only been c
perfect for the growth of grain and all c
other products of the farm but has been ,
equally so for the harvesting and cur- ,
ing of the same. And now in return t
for these blessings why should it not be f
oar duty as a favored people to set ,
apart a day of thanks giving in the near a
future to Almighty God tor the rich t
blessings He has stowed upon as. We t
urge this matter and think it should be c
considered a very impoitant one. It ,
seems that we have almost forgotton the

FAITH CURE FAIRLY BEATEN.

For many years my wife had been
the victim of nervous dyspepsia, of the
chronic, distressing and apparently in
curable type from which so many of her
sex suffer, languish and die. It was all
j the worse because the tendency to it
wasinherited. She had been under the
systematic treatment of many of the
best physicians in New York andllrpok
lyn and elsewhere for twenty years with
only temporary relief. In f.tct, (here
were few, if any, kinds of food that did
not distress her, so diseased, sensitive
and torpid were all the organs of diges
tion. The usual symptoms of dyspep
sia, with its concomitant ailments, were
all present—bad taste in the mouth,
dull eyes, cold feet and hands, the sense
of a load upon the stomach, tenderness
on pressure, indigestion, giddiness,
great weakness and prostration, and fu
gitive pains in the sides, chest and back,
i have often risen in the night and ad
ministered stimulants merely for the
sake of the slight aud transient relief
Intermittent malarial fever set in,
complicating the case and making
every symptom more pronounced and
intense. By this time the pneumo
gastric nerves had become very seri
ously involved, am' she had chronic
Gastritis, and also what I may be al
lowed to call chronic intermittent ma-
Una] fever all at once. For the latter
the physicians prescribed the good, old
fashioned, sheet-anchor remedy, Quin
ine gradually increasing the doses, until
—incredible as it may seem—she actu
ally took THIRTY GRAINS A DAY FOR
DAYS IN SUCCESSION. Tllis Could IlOt
last. The effect of the quinine was,
if possible, almost as bad as the two
fold disease which was wearing away
her strength and her life. Quinine
poisoning was painfully evident, but
the fever was there still- Almost every
day there came on the characteristic
chill and racking headache, followed
by the usi|ai weakness and collapse.
About this time I met socially my
friend Mr. Norton, a member of the
firm of Chauncey Titus 4 Company,
btokers, of Albany, who, on hearing
from me these facts, said: " Why, 1
have been through almost the same
thing, and have got over it." " What
cured you?" I asked eagerly. " Kas
kine," he said, "try it for your wife."
I had seen kaskine advertised, but had
no more faith in it than I liad in taw
dust, for sucli a" case as hers. Mrs.
Hall liad no higher opinion, yet on the
strength of my friend's recommends
tion I got a bottle and began -its use
Now recall what 1 have already said
as to her then condition, and then read
what follows: Under the Kaskine
treatment all the dyspeptic symptoms
shewed instant improvement, and the
daily fever grew less and soon ceased
altogether. Side by side these diseases
vanished, as side by side they had tort
ured their victim for ten years—the
dyspepsia alone having, as I have said,
existedfor twenty years. Her appetite
improved from week to week until she
could eat and digest the average food
that any well person takes, without any
suffering or inconvenience. With re
newed assimilation of food came, ol
course, a steady increase in flesh, until
she now looks like her original self.
She still takes Kaskine occasionally,
but with no real need of it, for she is
well. I consider this result a scientific
miracle, and the " New Quinine " is en
titled to the credit of it, for from the
time she began with Kaskine she used
po other medicine whatever.
If you think a recital of these facts
calculated to do good you are welcome
to inakp them public.
