Mr. Rogers is a native f Dm ham County,

ber of years. His host of acquaintances
will join in extending many congratula
tions. The Winston Republican says: "A
gentleman from Rateigh informs us that
Jim Young, col., will no doubt get the
Raleigh postofnee. If so, the Democratic
clerks and carriers will certainly resign.
They are all white Democrats and of
course their self-respect would not allow
them to hold office, for even a day, under
a negro Postmaster. We don't bet, but
a fellow offers to bet us a hundred dol
lars that not one of them will resign."

Latta Unsversity will be closed during
the Christmas holidays for all the session
for the purpose of rebuilding the build
ings that were consumed by tire last May,
and also additional buildings. The Uni
versity is located in the village of Ooer
lin, N. C, one and one-half miles west of
tbe capitol building in tbe city. The lo
cation is the very best for a school, being
out of tbe busy city, but within easj
reach by means of the electric street cars.
It is enough to say, that there has not
been a single case of serious illness since
the establishment of the school. Each
dormitory is heated by stoves and hearths,
so every necessary comfort is secured.
The terms are very reasonable $7 50 per
month. Those desiring to reduce their
expenses by work will be taken at the
lowest possible rates: young men $6 40
per month ; young women $5.40 per
month; day students $1 per month. A
small incidental fee will be charged.
The school will reopen on the 7th daj
of October,' 1897. Our purpose is to make
it one of the largest schools in the South
for the race. Law and Medicine will be
added. The institution is wholly non
sectarian in its religious instruction or
influence. Yet earnest attention will be
given to Bible study, applying its ttuths
