miles frbnVtlje city, when the scaffold
on which they were standing gave way
and Mr. James Pharr and ,Mx. MeKee
fell to the ground. They had a drop of
filteen feet and both were painfully in

sent for, found that neither of them
had sustained the breaking of any

Xbe Latest and Least.
The latest case of theft reported oc
curred Monday night,and the booty was
so small as to render it by odds the most
contemptible of the season. The mould
was stolen from a plow-stock on the
farm of John Schenck, near the Rudi-
sill Hill mine, the clevis pin taken with
it, and the plow-stock thrown into an
old shaft in the neighborhood. The
stolen property was worth perhaps 50
cents, and it is for such paltry sums
that men will run the risk of the peni
tentiary. 1 ' '

Wilhelm j. the great violinist did not
arrive in the eity until 7 o'clock last
evening, and consequently It was twen
ty minutes to nine when the curtain
arose on a small audience, but one
which, to use a much abused phrase,
was decidedly appreciative, being com
posed largely of musicians. The even
ing's entertainment was fhort, and the
usual programme must have been con
siderably curtailed. Of the wonderful
Eerformer himself, there is nothing to
e said in the way of criticism. He
has reached that degree of perfection
in his art which defies it, even at the
hands of those skilled in the art of
which he seems in a measure, to, be the
embodiment There Is a .softness and
purity in bis tones which few supposed
the violin capable of, while his playing
from begining to end is full of expres
sion. We have rarefy, if ever, seen an
audience in Charlotte wrought up to
a higher pitch of enthusiasm. At the
end of each piece he was called back,
but did not respond to any of the en
cores. The piano renditions of Mme. Carre
no were also much enjoyed, and were
encores in every instance. She seems
to be chiefly remarkable for her wort
derful technique, which could not have
been attainedlmt by the most arduous
and incessant labor.
It is a matter of general regret that
the two did not have the inspiration of
a larger audience.
A Legitimate Triumph in Medicine.
Dread and despair fall upon the community
when a terrible epidemic, like the cholera or yel
low fever, suddenly desolates our homes: yet, itfl
the while, a more insidious, but no less fatal foe,
enters thousands of households every year and
carries oft the flower of the family in the early flush
of manly youth and budding womanhood. People
call it consumption, or "decline." it is not, in
most cases, the tubercular phthisis or consumption
of the lungs, which is the peculiar malady in cli
mates luce those of the British Islands and New
England, but a general decay or arrest of the vital
processes of nutrition. All the doctors agree that
there is no remedy for this but Cod Liver Oil but
they are constantly met by the obstacle or Inability
on the part of the patient to swallow or retain it
This repulsion is entirely overcome by Scott's
Emulsion of the Oil with the HypophOBphites ef
Lime and Soda which is agreeable to the tastend
