Delicious, effervescing, ice cold ginger

- In the notice of Mr. J. C. Echard, gen
eral agent of the Virginia Valley Mutual,
we stated that the assessments would not
cost more than $12 a year. It should
have read that there would not be more
than twelve assessments. - v

Gen. Johnstone Jones and other gen
tlemen delivered addresses to-day at the
closing exercises of Prof. King's school.
This evening Dr. Bays will deliver a
lecture in connection with the Bame oc
casion. Mr. Jasper Smathers, who resides on
the west end of Patton Avenue, is. well
prepared to accommodate either families
or individuals with board. The very
name of Smathers is suggestive of good
feeding, and the public should note this
fact. , ,
- Nothing of importance could be ob
tained at the Courthouse this morning.
The Register could not even give us a
marriage item except that he refused
a license to a youth under 16 years of
age, the law prohibiting such marriage.
The boy said he would not be outdone,
and would seek the south Carolina
line. , ' , . ' v
The many friends of Capt. James M.
Gudger will be glad to learn that he is
recovering from the severe injuries he
received recently. He was badly knock

and the ministration of friends be is now
doing well.

We invite especial attention to the
card in another column of Mr. Thos. W.

for many corrections -of wrongs, and

We regret that it was utterly impossi
ble for any of the . Citizen staff to be
present at the exercises of Mr. King's
school at Beaver Dam to-day. .. It would
have been an occasion of great interest
to us, but only two of the staff are pres
ent for duty, and the- demands on their
time are imperative.
- The arrivals are not noticeably large
at piesent, but judging from' the number
of inquiries addressed to the pioprietors
of the Swannanoa, and we may presume
of other hotels; there may be expected a
heavy innux of visitors from all quarters,
and that very soon. - .

large crowd at the opera house last night,
and the same displays o her wonderful
and mysterious powers were witnessed.
Miss Lula's fiercest and most obstinate
customer was Doc Hortbn, and Doc gave
her a pretty good turn, hut she sent him
to grass in the end. Capt. Harry Johns
ton tried to hold her chair and she tum
bled him oft the stage. - Among others
whom she vanquished were Capt John
It. Irwin, 200 lbs; Prof. William R. At
kinson, .Esquire Hilton, and peverai
others of our heftiest citizens. All were
powerless to cope with Miss Lula and 15
of them put together could not push a
chair to the floor, she merely having her
hand upon the seat of the chair. . She is
a mystery, certain, and since her last
appearance here seems to have gained
new powers, or whatever else it is.
The City Tax Collectobship.
In reply to a suggestion made in the
Citizen some time since that Captain
Patton, te present tax collector of the
county, be appointed tax collector for
the city, our neighbor, the Advance, asked,
"What has Capt Patton done to deserve
the position?" We do not care to dis
cuss the question of personal deserts.
Every competent officer earns his salary,
and we presume gets his pay; and so the
question of desert does not enter into
the discussion, nor in any way interest
the public The only question to be dis
cussed is, what is most conducive to the
public cood ? In answer to this, we find
that the levy of tax made on last Mon
day for Buncombe is 42. cents on the
flOO worth of property; whereas, the
levy in McDowell county is $1.35, nearly
three and a half times as much.' How
much of this difference is attributable to
the results of the exactness with which
the county tax of last year was collected.
We leave for the Boaru of Aldermen to

Death to Insects.
We gave a trial yesterday to the Per
sian, Dalmatian, or Insect powder. It is
an inpalpable yellow dust, made from
the pulverized flowers of the pyrethrum
roseatum, a plant largely cultivated on
the eastern coast of the Adriatic It is
death to flies and fleas an? almost every
other insect. It is death to the Colora
do beetle, as we proved. 'Bat from the
lightness of the powder, it is somewhat
difficult to apply it, the faintest breeze
wafting it away. Indoors, it is best ap
plied by "means ' of the same kind of
syringe that is used, with the inbalator.
For flies, close the doors of rooms, and
jet out a few puffs of the dust. In a short
time tne piesent brood win an tumble
to the ground. . Other insects can be
reached directly with the same appli
ance. Death to insects, it is perfectly
innocuous to human beings, safe and
perfectly cleanly. We find it at Pel
hams, and perhaps all the druggists here
have it. We recommend its use; and
the time has come when the fight with
flies and fleas is the hottest. ,

1. A deed from an individual to a cor
poration will be good and pass the title
to the land, if it clearly appears. from
the deed itself what corporation was in-,
tended, although a mistake or omission
in the corporate name may have occur
red, and this rule is not changed by the
fact that at the time of executing the
deed, the grantor was ignorant that the
grantee was a body corporate.
2. If lands are conveyed to a corpora
tion aggregate, it will, from the nature of
Buch corporations, be understood as a
fee without any words of limitation.
3. Although the existence of a corpor
ation be limited to a certain number of
years, yet it is capable of holding estates
in iee. .
4. A corporation chartered for the pur
pose of promoting temperance, does not
forfeit real estate which it has purchased,
because it ceases to pursue, the objects
for which it was incorporated. .
5. A corporation cannot endure longer
than the time prescribed by its charter,
and no judicial proceedings are necessary
to declare a forfeiture for such a cause,
but for any other cause of forfeiture, a
direct proceeding must be instituted by
the sovereign to enforce the forfeiture,
and it cannot be taken advantage, of in
any collateral proceeding.
o. A receiver appointed under tne act
(The Code, section 670), to wind up the
affairs of corporations, can proceed to col
lect in the assets, and to prosecute and
defend suits, after the corporation has
ceased to exist by the expiration of the
charter. ...

advance of ten per cent is onered. APer
confirmation of the biddings will not be

fairness, or some other adequate cause,

in the exercise of his discretion, refuses
to open the biddings on an advance of

As there have been some- reports circulated
in Asheville, by the local agent of this compa
ny, that I have no right to solicit insurance
here, I make this statement to set myself
right with persons that don't know any better.
I am the Ajrent-at-Large over all the territory
this company does business in. Such Agent-at-Large
means anywhere and everywhere, I
shall make my headquarters here for some
ume to 10OK alter mo uiurrtmiB ui uub uuuipv
ny. whose new features now present to the
publio the most perfect life insurance in ex
istence. The company guarantees that "there
will not be more than twelve single or six
double assessments a year. Any one can toll
exactly what he will be called upon to pay
oa a policy during an expected life-time.
Every death has been promptly paid, and
doesn't coot more than one-half it takes to car
ry a policy in an old line company. Come one
and all, and make the best investment yon can
possibly mane during your 111 e. .

I regret the necessity which calls forth
the card, in reply to the advertisement
which appeared in the Citizen of the 4th
inst, signed J. C. Echard, Agent at Large
for the Valley Mutual Life Association
of Virginia, for Virginia, We6t Virginia,
Maryland, Kentucky, Tennessee, North
and South Carolina, which "means any
where and everywhere." lhat said
Echard, "Agent at Large, which "means
anywhere and everywhere," may possi
bly have the right to traverse the entire
territory, occupied by the association,
yet he is unmindful of the courtesy that
should always exist between Agents at
Large which "means anywhere and ey
ery where" and Local Agents. No other
travelling agent, of the association has
ever solicited insurance here without my

j - -r . . 7 o
whom our Age u tat Large, which "means
anywhere and everywhere," reports all
North Carolina business, does not work
in Asheville, save through my office, and
I take it, that in no department of busi
ness are Local Agents interfered with re
presentatives from Houses or Companies,
represented by the Local b. I have taken
in Asheville upwards of 5100,000 for the
Valley Mutual and: but for thestringency
of money matters, would have doubled
that amount lexpectalways to be with
you and ready at all times to explain
this most perfect safe and cheap system
of Life Insurance. "Before many days"
our Agent at Large which "means any
where and everywhere" "will fold his
tent" to traverse "over all the territory
this company does business in," and I
will be here to take care of the interest
of the association and - its members.
Thanking a generous public for their
patronage in the past, I now leave it to
them to choose between said Agent at
Large which "means anywhere and ev
erywhere" and one of your, citizens for
an agent for Life InBnrawce in the Val

. London, June 5.
Unofficial reports of the earthquake in
Cashmere are of such an alarming char
acter as to make it more than likely that
the earthquake will prove even more dis
astrous in its effect than the first dispatches
stated them to be. Whole cities and
towns in the Vale are spoken of as destoy
ed.. The absence of definite nemts attrib
uted to the demolition of telegraph lines in
the general wreck and chaos. In conse
quence, the magnitude ox the calamity,
and the numbers killed and wounded are
left for the imagination to supply.

The News-Obseiver says : Maj. James
W. "Wilson, of Morganton, yesterday told
a reporter some queer things in regard to
the distemper among cattle. If cattle are
brought east from the mountains . they,
die generally, in three weeks, of distemper.
There is no such thing a preserving their
lives. The "distemper line," which cannot
he crossed, is now, Maj. W. says, about
eight miles west of Morganton. Cattle .
brought from a point just west of that line
to one just east of it, die in a little time. In
1775 the line was as far east as Johnston
county. It appears to move westward with
the chestnut trees. A hundred years ago
these were abundant here.' ' They died a
