should be AROUND THE TOWN (S). Ue scribe has just com
pleted fc blitnkriefiT tour of tHp eastern portion of the old north
state and will herein repot the conditions I saw them. Kin
ston and Wilmingrton are suffering’ sKshtly from soldier-

ment, This is a notable step • n
the part of the ministers of the
