-Heath concluded ■be would take bis
dogs and look altar one that had bean
killing his huge, and bad not gone far
before hia dogs struck a trail, and soon
run two cubs up a Ires. As the first
on* went up be shot it off, the mother
bear being at the foot of the tree at
once took it off, In a few moments the
other started op and be shot it off,
when it gave a squall, tbe old bear re
turned and carried .11 away. Not ex
pecting the returo of the mother bear,
Mr. Heath bad been in no knrry to
load his gun, but to hie astonishment
She shortly appeared iu a few feet of
him, showing considerable sums of
fight. Mr. Heath was not very much
frightened, hut, wanted to be at home
about this Lime. To run waa impossi
ble, and to climb a tree would have
been useless, as the bear could have
eon* up faster than he. Tbe does fi
nally came to the rescue, and drove
her sway, which relieved the situation,
Mr. Heath found ooe of the cobs be
bad killed and home. The next
time be goes into tue pocosin to hunt
boar he will not go alone.

At the close of the above exercises
Mr. Thos D. Warren, on* of tb* rrof
assort of the New Berne High School,
to a few appropriate remarks Iniro
doetd to the audience itev. Mr. John
who had been selected to deliver th*
Mr. .John bad happily selected as
bis subject, th* effect of the abolition
of slavery upon southern society.
Tbe speaker contrasted tha condi
tions existing in tha south prior to tha
war. with the conditions of the present.
Then there were two classes, the typ
ina* southern gentleinau with his scores
and hundreds of slaves, living tha life
of a fndal lord and regarding all man
ner of work as disgraceful; then there
was tha non slave holders or "Poor
Buckra,” as they were contemptuously
called, eking out a miserable existence,
an object of contempt lor tha slaves
themselves, and entirely at the mercy
of their more powerful neighbors.
With the abolition of slavery a change
of standards coins. The wealthy slave
holder bad hfa property taken from
him and waa forced to toil or starve.
The Kiignia attached to work disap
peared aud a field of unlimited oppoi
tunity was opened.
Today instead of regarding with con
tempt, those who seek by honest labor
to make so honest living, they are en
couraged and pointed to as examples
worthy ot emulation. Mr. John waa
very emphatic in his denunciation of
those who inveigh against existing con
ditions and “pine for th* good old day*
of long ego.” In conclusion he said
that this change of ideals is far better
in every ins ane* except one.we are in
imminent danger of toeing that genar
ous hospitality for which th* old time
southerner was so widely noted.
Trenton baa jnet cause to fell proud
of her school, for it is one of the beet
equippsd in the State. With commo
dloua buildings, conviently arranged, a
thoroughly competent principal,
healthy location, alt combined to make
it a most deaireable school, and we
hop* to see a large number of scholars
at the beginning of the fall session.
Let Trenton go earnestly to work to
boi d up her school, for she could not
foster an enterprise that would prove
of greater advantage or add more to
