;Tlie cotton men have begun to pay

Uranine An Interesting Experiment.
The substance known as uranine is
said to be the most highly fluorescent
body known to science, and it very
ikely is. We have specimens of it from
Messrs. Munn & Co., publishers of the
Scientific American, New York, and
rom Messrs. Stafford, Caldwell & Co.,
of Hairisburg. A most interesting experi
ment, which anybody may try, consists
in sprinkling a few atoms of uranine
upon the suface of water in a glass
tumbler. Each atom immediately sends
down through the water what appears
to be a bright green rootlet ; and the tum
bler soon looks as if it were crowded
full of beautiful plants. The rootlets
now begin to enlarge, spread and com
bine, until we have a mass of sott green-
colored liquid. Viewed by transmitted
lght, the color changes to a bright
golden or amber hue: while a combina-
n ot green and gold will be realized,
according to the position in which the
glasses held. For a dav or evening ex
periment nothing can be prettier than
these trials of uranine, which are es
pecially entertaining for the young
folks. The editors ot the Scientific Am
erican are sending out specimens, free
of charge, to all their readers. The sub
scription to the paper is $3.20 for a year,
or 351.60 halt year, and a better invest
ment for the money could hardly be

Mr. F. C. Bangs, the most renowned
actor of the classical-historical charac
ter of Marc Antony of the "English
speaking stage, will certainly appear in,
this city in a short timer either during
the present month or next. Mr. 'John
Ford, under whose management Mr.
Bangs is traveling the present season,
writes to Mr. H. C. Eccles, proprietor of
the Central Hotel in this city, convey
ing this information, and enclosing cir
culars. There is no play more grand
than Julius Caesar; there was no char
acter m wrhose mouth Shakespeare put
such grandly eloquent speeches as in
that of Marc. Antony.
Julius Caesar has never been present
ed here, It will draw immensely. By
Mr. Ford this season it has been power
fully cast. Mr. Thos. W. Keene, who
las distinguished himseir in that part,
will give us his interpretation of Cas-
sius ; Marcus- Brutus will e represent
ed by Mr. R. 1 , Downing ;and Julius
Cfesar bv Mr. Geo. Hoev. TheDiav will
be produced here with appropriate cos-
tumes, special scenery and historical
insignia, and notwithstanding the first
class talent that has been seen on our,
boards this winter, this promises to be
the dramatic event or the season.

New Year's Day How it was Obser
From a meteorological point of view
the first day of the new year was as dis
mal and dreary as it is possible for a
winter day : to ; be, vX socially it was
one of the gayest and most delightful
Charlotte society has ever known.
Gradually the very pleasant custom of
social visits of gentlemen among their
friends and acquaintances has come
into vogue until it is now fully estab
lished.; Almost all of the young gentle
men and several married men, wrho
have not evidently abandoned the fe
male friends of their younger days, were
out, and the day was given up to social
pleasures. The gentlemen went out in
parties of two and four and extended
the round of their visits far into the
night All of the handsomest livery
turnouts in the city were whirling
through the streets all day, and among
some of the special features was a team
or four-m-hand and another hitched
tandem. Many elegant private resi
dencesand Charlotte is noted for the
elegance of its private residences were
thrown open to receive one after anoth

tlemen went irora one house to another
in groups, so the ladies received in par-

Every body must talk about some
thing. The poor fellow who was told
not to talk for fear that the people
would find out that be was a fool, made
nothing by the experiment. He was
considered, a fooj because h , did . not
talk on some subject or other. Every
body must have something t to say, or
give up society. Of course,' the topics
of conversation will relate to the sub
jects of knowledge. If a man is inter
ested in science he will talk about
science. If lie. is an , enthusiast in
art he will talk- talk about artv
If he is familiar with literature, and is
an intelligent and persistent reader, he
will naturally bring forward literary
topics in his conversation. So with social-
and religious questions. "Out of
the abundance of the heart the mouth
speaketh." That of which the mind is
full, that with which it is furnished,
will come out in expression.
The very simple reason why the world
is full of gossip is that" those who in
dulge in it have nothing else in them.
They , must interest themselves in some
thing. They know nothing but what
they leam from day to day in inter
course with and observation of their
neighbors. What these neighbors do,
w hat they say, wrhat happens to them
in their social and business affairs,
what they wear, these become the ques
lions of suprera e interest. The person
al and social life around them this is
the book under constant perusal, and
out of this comes that pestiferous con
versation which we call gossip. The
world is full of it, and in a million
houses, all over the country, nothing is
talked of but the personal affairs of
What is the cure for gossip ? Simply
culture. There is a great deal of gossip
that has no malignity in it. Good-natured
people talk about their neighbors
because, and only because, they have
nothing else to talk about.
Gossip is always a personal confes
sion either of malice or imbecility, and
the young should not only shun it, but
by the most thorough culture relieve
themselves from all temptation to in
dulge in it. It is low, frivolous, and
too often a dirty business. There are
country neighborhoods in wrhich it
rages like a pest. Churches are split
inlpieces by it. Neighbors make ene
mies by it for life. In many persons it
degenerates into a chronic disease,
which is practically incurable. Let the
young cure it while they may.

Ease Attainable by the Rheumatic.
Yes, although they may despair of relief, it is
attainable by rheumatic sufferers, for there is a
remedy which carries off, by means of increased
activity of the kidneys Important .channels for
blood purification the acrid element to which
pathologists the most eminent attribute the painful
symptoms a theory completely borne out by urin
ary analysis. The name of this grand depurent is
Hostetters, a preparation likewise celebrated as a
remedy for constipation, which causer contamina
tion of the blood with the bile and a certain
means of relief in dyspepsia, fever and ague, and
nervous ailments. It is, perhaps, the finest tonic
extant,- and is highly recommended as a medicinal
stimulant by distinguished physicians and analysts
who pronounce It to be eminently pure and very
beneficial. The press also endorses It.
An Astonishing Fact.
A large proportion of the American

DvsDeDsia or dis
ordered liver. 1 he result oi these diseases upon
the masses of Intelligent and valuable people is
most alarming, making life actually a burden In
stead of a pleasant existence of enjoyment and
usefulness as it ought to be. There is no good rea
son for this, If vou will only throw aside prejudice
and skepticism, take the advice of Druggists and
your friends, and try one bottle of Green's August
Flower, jour speedy relief Is certain. Millions of
bottles of this medicine have been given away to
try Its virtues, with satisfactory results In every case.
You can buy a sample bottle for 10 cents to try.
Three doses will relieve the worst case. Positively
sold by all druggists on the Western Continent.
