WeWler tells us that a gossip is a person "who runs about tell ing aDd hearing news." 1 But Webber was a chivalrous gentleman, uml times have chan ged sincc his day. His definition of a gossip has become weak and lackipg in descriptive force.' But common consent is more up to date? more accurate, and ju& in its verdicft? and by com mon Consent the professional gossip has been designaflsl&s a thing in human shape with more mouth than brains The small town gossip cab do more hinn in one hour than a wholo community of -people can overcome in a lifetime of ef/'ort,, The gossip is the breeder of scandal, the wrecker of repu tation* aud the blighter of hopes. The gossip is the btizzard of - society, the bane .of humanity and the advance agent of the devil. ' The gossip has but ono creed, and that is the crucifixion of in nocence and the perpetuation of infamy. The tongue of the gossip is so forked it would brir g the blush of "shame to the fu-e of that other reptile of the sprit tongue species ? the snake. The gosrip lives but to revel in the slime of Insinuations and innuendoes and calumnies. acauaat is tnc bread o( life to the gossip, and the greatest de sire and most intense longing 'of the' professional if for "more gossip." The $ock in trade of the gos sip is like the rainbow? it has no etfd. It juft keeps on going, and enlarging and crucifying until if blight: everyth'a;: It ccccu^lcrs. It is like the breath of hell upon the fair cheek of dh angel. The Ros'ip's tongue begins to wag in the morning,' wags all day, keeps on wagging iflto the night, and, like casparets, wags while you sleep. . The jpssip r jmHrues Xhc idle pastime of tbj innocent maiden into the intrigues of a subtle ind poisoned1 brain. If a man looks twice at a Woman, the gossip rips his char acter to shreds and nails bis hide , to the wall? <*/ obloquy. " The gossip meddles in Iho pri vate' affairs of everybody within reach of the victrolic tongue, peers behind the curtains of every home, nnd f redls skeletons in doseta?here none ; The <onguc of the gossip is the moft poisonous and deadly faftrument of tortue in cxiilenco, for it has no regard for truth, veracity, or for human suffering. The poisonous reptile strikes, and inflidt* a mercifully quick death. But the gossip mnimj, and lacerates, ane crucifies utHjl the 1 human sonl is seared with its burden of agony. Y\Vhen God creoted .tbe hea vens and the earth JIe inflicted humanity with the presence ci snakes nnd other slimy and oozy nhd pcOifcrOus and odorforious objects of loathing. | And lie also inflided us with the gossip? for what reason only He in His superior wicdotn cao tell. ' Is there a hereafter for the gos sip? And if so, where is it? > Heaven wot't have them, and bell don't want them. Arc they to pass down through the ages of eternity as a people without a final placc of. abode? Or arc they like the reptile, a thing without u soul? - The question is too deep' for the human mind to solve. ? But perhaps llic gossip can tell. WHY PEOPLE READ THE ADVERTISEMENTS. Suddenly nsk twenty people ?why they read the advertise ments in this paper every week, and fifteen out of the twenty .will probably hesitate, and ham mer, and become more or less embarressed before they can call to mind the real reason why they read the adj. People buy this paper and read it for two very Simple rea sons?they want to know the news of their home community, and they want to know of the commercial advantages that are placed before them each week in its advertising columnar This? paper goes out each week to an enlightened people? to a people who arc accustomed to ta think and a (51 for themselves ?to a people who know ex*dty what they want, and want to know where they can get it. Hence the natural course for them to pursue in their search for inrormatioa is to turn to the advertising columns of the pa per. ?'?'iv-f-:* . The live merchant knows ibis ? recognizes th? farfl that he 1? catering to a people of high mental attainments, and shapes his business policy to meet their commercial desires. Such merchants live and pros per, and grow with the com munity. Their advertisements arc con stantly placing, the desirability of their goods before the buyer, and. tho merchant ; is tbu3 brought into contaA with the buyer through tue medium of his advertisement. The information contained in the advertisemct saves the buy er the time of chasing from place to place in search dt some article of which he Sands in need. It thus becomes a time saver to the buyer;:*!>d an impulse which ?pur? bim on to a con flatat persuing of the advertising pages of the paper. Thft habit of reading the advertisements is growing upon the people day by day, ? for the public realizes that it is the one and only surq means of reducing the "killing of time" to a mini gium. 1 1 Theae are (Strenuous days, and time is money, and die well written advertisement becomes! a thici of great value to tttej consumer as well as to tl ^nd of lalo yean tl sumer has become edt to the Standard of . merchant who wants to talk to him through um of hivadverti .* > -V m VPomatt St>oul6 Vote* v '*;!'- ' >?

LIFE SUCCUMBS 10 SAD END. . .9 ' ' i MR. ZEB BYNUM DEAD. Found With Face Buried In Water In Ditch Near His Home. Had Been Shrubbing. The friends and relatives of Mr. Zeb Bynum were 'suddenly ruck with grief Saturday morn ing, March 13th, when news of the sad end of his life reached their ears. Mr. Bynum had been shrub ?bipR on the ditch bank on the toad side nenr his home, a few "miles South of Farmville, in Greene county, the evenine be fore, and as he failed to come up for supper.the family thought that he bad probably gotten up with some one and gone over to Farmville, as he had often done before, and would return later in the evening, so they were not uneasy about his whereabouts. But when day broke the next morning and Still he had not put in his appearance his brother, Mr. Ben Bynum, went out in seasch, finding him face fore most in the ditch where he was at work the afternoon before, with his head burried in the bot tom of ihfe ditah and his feet rest ing on the bank higher up. He immediately summoned the cor oner, Dr. J. H. Harper, of Snow Hill, to the scene, who, upon ex amination, found there had been no foul play, but a ease of heart failure or apperplexy.
