Are you disturbed at night and broken of your
rest by a sick child suffering and crying with the
excruciating pain of cutting teeth ? If so. go at
once and get a bottle of MRS. WINSLOW'3
SOOTHING SYRUP. It will relieve the poor little
sufferer Immediately depend upon It : there Is no
mistake about It There Is not a mother on earth
who has ever used It, who will not tell you at once
that it will regulate the bowels, and give rest to the
mother, and rellefand health to the child, operat
ing like magic. It is perfectly safe to use In all
cases, and pleasant to the taste, and Is the pre

They may relieve, but they can't cure that lame

a remedy to act directly on their secretions, to
purify and restore their healthy condition. Kid

to Kt sick- but get a package to-day, and cure

but, since Intoxication becomes a di-ease, it re
quires a remedy or no unusual activity. Those
who have taken Simmons Liver Regulator declare
that it sets the liver In action and invigorates the
system In such a way as to destioy the craving for
strong drinks. The shaky, nervous and distressed
should resort to the Regulator as a tonic to arouse
the torpid liver to action, to regulate the bowels
and remove the feeling of general depression and
wi h It the craving for liquor.
The ladles who sometime since were unable to
go out, having taken Lydla E. Plnkham's Vegeta

on their way rejoicing.

E3The occasional snaps of sunshine
yesterday had a perceptible effect on
all animated nature. Even the mules
on the street relaxed the usual rigidity
of countenance, while a large dog gave
a manifestation of his joy by galloping
around the square in front of a tin pan.

J. C. Freoland, a citizen of Char

his home yesterday morning about nine
o'clock. The funeral will be preached
at the residence of the deceased this

years old, and leaves a wife and two lit

From a Newark (N. J.) paper it is

The first jury case set for yesterday
was that of Elsie Britton vs. the Atlan-

Two cases came before the city court
yesterday morning, the first of which
was a pluin drunk, the party being a
stranger in the city $2 50 and C03ts.
The other case was against Daniel
Mann, white, for the offense of drawing
a pistol on a little boy some five or six
years old, and making him kneel down
and say his prajers. The offense was
committed on :t Sunday some two
months ago, but Mann succeeded in
keeping out of the way of the officers
until the other day. lie was fined $5
and costs for using profane language on
the Sabbath, and required to give bond
for his appearance at court to answer a
charge of carrying concealed weapons.
Lizznrds and snakes continue popu-
ar as designs for bracelets, and neck
aces, and it is said that one of our
young men has ordered a circlet for the
tiny waisl of his intended. It is to be
made in the form of a snake, of pliable
gold and enan.eled in green, with em
erald eyes. Two curled needles were
put in the serpent's mouth to rep
resent the fangs, and this is the suspi
cious part about the affair. In olden
times men were assassinated by Judas-
es who wore a ring with a poisoned
claw, and when the wearer shook
hands with his enemy he could, by a
dexterous movement, scratch his palm
with the poisoned claw and produce a
speedy and horrible death. It is not
he intention to intimate that the nee
dles in the circlet have been dipped in
po.ison, but the design hasja decidedly
green-eyed look about it, and was no
doubt concocted by the donor with the
deliberate intention of poisoning some
other young man, by scratching his
arm instead of I. 3 palm.
Yesterday morning's edition of The
Observer failed to get off on the
morninar train North, owing, it is air
legec, to the mail carrier (whose busi
ness it is to take the mail matter to the
depot,) being drunk and failing to call
at the postoffice for the mails. And
notonlv TnE Observer, but every
other parcel of matter that should have
gone North, was left lying in the office,
and thus delayed, perhaps to the serious
injury oi many, wnen mere is no
reasonable excuse to be offered for the
delay. Such negligence should not be
tolerated by the postmaster, for aside
from the disrepute it is calculated to
bring the administration of the office
into there is no telling wnat injury ana
loss business men are liable to sustain
by such delays in the transmission of
important papers. The route agents
are not expected to shoulder the mail
bags and march to the depot with
them, but it is stated that one of them
attempted to hire a wagon yesterday
morning to carry the mails to the train-
but was unable to do so on account or
the short time allowed.

The boaroYof directors of the North
Carolina Railroad Company met at the
Central hotel in this city yesterday.
The only business transacted of interest
to the public was the declairing of a
dividend of six per cent, which will
be payable 3 per cent, on the 1st day of
March next, and 3 per cent, on the 1st
day of September.
Day before yesterday a gentleman
approached a prominent railroad man in
the city and handed him a silver dollar,
remarking that he wanted to pay the
railroad the sum of 80 cents. When
the r. r. man asked what the payment
was for, he was informed that about
five or six years ago a certain individual
had made two trips over fhe railroad,
the fare for which was 25 cents each
way, and that on each of the trips the
party gave the conductor the slip and
escaped paying fare. Recently the man
made a calculation of the interest on the
amount he had beat the road out of, and
adding it to the principa.1, placed the
sum in the hands of a friend with the
request that it be paid over to the
road.. Inquiry revealed the fact that
the party has recently professed a
change of heart and entered a calling
in which it would not be at all consis
tent to beat even a railroad, and it
seems that the regeneration has reach
ed further back than the day of its tak
Gone to Washington.
Postmaster Jenkins left the city
several days ago for Washington,
whither he has gone on post-office busi
ness strictly, and thre is no one after
his place just now, either. We make
the latter statement, as it is generally
believed when an official picks up atid
suddenly makes a trip to headquarters
that some outsider has touched a spring
which caused the pilgrimage. It is
more likely that the visit is made with
the view of securing an increase in the
allowance of this postoffice for clerk
Shortly after Postmaster-General
James went into office the amount alw
lowed for clerk hire at the Charlotte
post office was reduced from $2,400 to
$1,759, by which reduction it became
necessary to dispense with one clerkt
and even now the postmaster is said
to be paying a considerable sum out of
his own pocket in the way of clerk
hire, in order to keep the service in
the office up to a satisfactory state of
efficiency. It is to be hoped that Mr.
Jenkins will be able to get an increase
in the allowance, as it is alike due to
him and to ths public service that he
be given the necessary force to admin

A Uandnomo Tribute.
Rev. N. M. Woods, who was recently
called to the pastorate of the Second
Presbyterian church of this city, re
ceived a testimonial of the esteem in
which he was held by his former
church, which we publish below. Mr.
Woods was formerly pastor of the
Presbyterian church in Galveston, Tex
as, and the cause of his removal was
the health of Mrs. Woods, whose phy
sicians pronounced a change of climate
absolutely necessary. His ministra
tions at the Galveston church were of
short duration, but that his loss was re
gretted by his people is evidenced by
the following resolutions, taken from
the Galveston News, which were adopt
ed after he annnounced his intention
of changing bia location:

TO THE PUBLIC.
ON last Saturday, January 7th, a man calling
himself J. W. Holt, bought a bay mare from
me, at my home near Snow Creek, in Iredell coun
ty, and palmed off upon -me a worthless check for
one hundred dollars as part payment. He after
wards left the county and when last heard from
was traveling towards South Carolina, having
passed through Charlotte.
The animal was a blood bay mare, seven years
old, dixtsen hands high, and a first-rate traveler.
The man was apparently 22 or 23 years old,
five feet eight lueses high, lair complexion, light
hair, without beard and very well dressed.
I hereby forewarn any person from trading for
the mare, and will pay a suitable reward for her
recovery, or for any information that will lead to
the arrest of the scoundrel.
