Dr.-J. M. Curry.
' This distinguished . gentleman whoj
partly 'of us' in this section, is thus allud
ed to by the Nashviller Tenn., American
6f Saturday :' . v : . ',. - : '
Hon. J. L. M. Curry, L. L. wno is
to deliver the address at the Normal Col
lege commencement on Wednesday next,
has long been regarded as . one of the
most efficient and -popular speakers in
the South. He has moreJiian once held
our State .assembly entranced by nis
brilliant and fervid oratory, but the
coming occasion is the first in which an
opportunity to hear him has been afford
ed our citizens generally, one which they
will certainly regret to have lost
. Dr. Currv was one of the most promis
ing of "the young men of the South be
fore the war. Originally educated for
the bar, he - early - became a foremost
iswyerj a judge ama. memoer oi tne
Federal Congress: 'then a soiaier ana
member of the Confederate Congress,
and finally a theological professor in the
Baptist Theological Seminary at Rich
mond. Va. On the death of Dr. Sears,
the- well-remembered general agent of
the Peabody Education Fund, he .was
elected to the place, which he has since
nlled with such distinguished ability.
Prof. Walter H. Smith, president of the
Astro Meteorological Association, of
Montreal, sends through Mr. N. Plum-
adore the prediction of a general storm
area during the hist week or ten days of
June in which he says : "On June 24th
and 26th respectively the planets Mer
cury and Venus are at their perihelion
points. AS past records show'that some
tof the most disastrous toraadbetv .cyclones
seasons when only ono of thesb planets
has been nearest tne sun, l fear tnat there
is every probability of a recurrence oi
grave atmospheric disturbance this year.
An imperlect weatner recora at tne more
recent perihelion dates shows that on
August 3, 1883, mercury wasat perihelion,
and on the 2nd a cylone wrecked Snow
flake, Man.; 3rd, a great waterspout burst
at Shelby, Ohio, and a heated term with
auroral displays lasted from the 4th to
the 7th, followed by high winds, rain
and a cool reaction. On July 21, 1883,
with mercury at perihelion, a terrible
tornado wrecked Minnesota and adjacent
parts, doing $130,000 damage in Dodge
county alone, witn tornadoes as lar nortn
as Korel, Canada, nouses tnere being
wrecked on the 22nd. On August 22,
1883, Venus was in perihelion, and great
heat was felt over the Eastern States and
Canada on 20th and 21st, sunstrokes be
ing numerous. On 21st a great tornado
at Rochester, .Minnesota, tore up 135
dwelling houses and killed 26 persons;
22nd, hurricane at Ottawa, Ontario. On
July 7, 1884, mercury was in perihelion
and great heat was experienced on 5 and
6th; with heayy storms over Iowa, Wis
consin and New York States, and on 7th,
a waterspout drowned persons and swept
crops and houses away in Madison coun
ty, Arkansas. ' ' ' :
My special forecast for the last eight
or ten days of June, 1885, reads :.. "Op
pressive heat high - Winds, thunder
showers and. unsettled weather in the
North-Eastern United States and Canada,
Tornadoes probable in "tomato sections.
notably the Western ana boutn- western
States near the Mississippi Valley, fol
lowed bv a reactionary cool to very cool
period of high barometric pressure with
local frosts in Northern and Middle sec
tions. June ending cool. Tornadoes occur
most frequently between the . hours of
two and six p. m."

Asheville and Its Connections.
After looking at the map . presented in
this issue by Gwyn's Western North Car
olina Land Agency the map drawn by
Mr. Gwyn himself the question need no
longer he asked "how is Asheville to be
reached ?" The map shows that Asheville
is already a veritable railroad centre, with
some spokes of the radiating arms yet to
be fitted in. The perfection of communi
cation already -attained is a surprise to
those even among us who have not looked
into the matter. No wonder it will sur
prise those abroad. . A study of the map
will show direct connection with all parts
of the country. Asheville is now Within
24 hours of New York, 48 of New Orleans,
22 of Louisville and Cincinnati, 30 of St.
Louis and Chicago, and soon will be with
in 12 of Charleston and ii of Savannah;
and in the winter and spring months will
be found to be in the direct line of Florida
travel by- the nearest and Quickest routes,
ifc-. .rryxir norc arci? e'trflSgeucea '
land agent, has made hiaryfiidely and fa
vorably known, merits favorable considera
tion for this new illustration of his skill
and enterprise. ' ';
The Way to Get Well .
Is not to try every new remedy that is
brought to your notice, but first aacertain
what is best suited to your case and
then begin its use, with a determination
to give it a fair trial, and do not throw it
aside to try everything you see advertis
ed as having wrought some . miraculous
cure, for in nearly every instance it will
aggravate the disease, but if you have
dyspepsia, indigestion, neuralgia, bead-
aches, chills and fevers, &&, give the
Seven Springs "Iron Alum Mass" a fair
trial, and unmistakable bencnts will be

. Dr.- J7 ,A. Burroughs. - in .a '"recent
visit to Virginia, was near" the scene of
the Jeter-Terry tragedy; 7His Informa
tion is interesting, but we can use : only
so much as refers -to the lynching of
young Terrjr. That atrocity was with,
out the participation of the Jeter family
and repugnant to their sentiments.' They
were ready, to leave the punishment to
be meted out, if any,-to -the law. But
they, in common with' the majority of
the community, were cognizant of the
irresponsibility of Terry, who. was known
to be subject to periods of insanity, a
man dangerous.to be at lirrge, but not
wicked from malice or premeditation
He had been in the Asylum, and it was
proposed soon to return him to the same
place of security. The indignation of the
people of the county in which the trages
dy took place is aroused, and will not be
appeased until the chief perpetrators are
arrnted. Large rewards are . offered,
botn by the State and county authorities;
and it is believed that the eye of justice
has fallen upon the guilty parties. .,.
The only extenuation made for the
deed is the acquittal of the slayer of Car
rington, very shortly before the lynching
of 7 Terry, lie" was acquitted on the
ground of insanity. The, same counsel
who had defended Johnson was engaged
for the defence of Terry. The populace
would not or could not discriminate be
tween real insanity and - feigned or tem
porary madness, and were determined
in a'purpose to permit no more judicial

; .The vast furniture factory of IL Iler

150 o'clock5 this tnorninsr.- It is l a five-
stry briet joiln8 aj Accuptpr-the
whole blocks fronting 200 feet on Delancy
and 150 feet on the other street. . It was
an old building, occupied by the Singer
Sewing Machine Factory, and. was satur
ated" with' oil. The whole building', is
surrounded by ' miserable tenement
houses, occupied by the poorest classes
in the city, The fire, was intensely,' hot
and nearly a hundred, families, were
driven'from their homes. They rushed
oul in their night clothes and were com
pelled to camp on the river side, where
they shivered in the chilly winds of the
morning. - At '. fpur o'clock . the whole
building was. in flakes and there was no
hope of saving any of the property; and
the .firemen directed their efforts to make
the miserable people as comfortable as
possible. ' At 4:80 a.' m, alarms were sent
out for 'extra : engines, ; and ' it lookred
as though the iwbole : sarrouhdinar
neighborhood .wonld be destroyed:
at p o'clock alarms were still beiiuj sent
out for extra engines. The reason ;the
flames eptead -so rapidly was on account
of the oil in "the floors. 7 The factory Vat
filled'.with furniture and It is estimated
that the loss will amount to more, than
one ' million . ; dollars. This is a
busy season of the year and the loss will
be still heavier for the company for this
reason, ' Qver three hundred men will
be (thrown out of employment The
streets at q:60 a. in. were crowded with
people, and the greatest excitement pre
vails in the neighborhood as everybody
in the surrounding tenement houses was
moving furniture and seeking to escape
from the flames which were fast spread
ing in all directions. .. Sup't Pinnon of
the factory said it was impossible to say
where there originated ; but it was be.
lieved that it had started in the engine
room. . At 6:oO a. ta. stciat calls for ex
tra engines were being sent out amd.it
was estimated that the loss would amount
to one million five hundred thousand
dollars. , , :
Though the entire available force of
the fire department was summoned, it
was two hours before the flapies M-ere
fairly under control; The ' flames are
