.Salisbury tub Place, We think
there can be no doubt that Salisbury
is the most suitable point to hold the
Democratic Convention to nominate a
State ticket. .True it i a little West
of the center of the State, but when
the'advdntagesj the East has over the
West in railroad facilities arc taken
into consideration, it must be admit
ted the most equitable arrangements
that could be made for both sections.
Our Charlotte friends very naturally
desire that it should be held iu their
city and! Charlotte is quite as acces
sible as Salisbury, but then we should
not lose sight of the tact that the peo
ples favorite for Governor is a ctttzen
of Charlotte, and if he should be notn-
nated at Jits, own home, disgruntled
asprirants might raise the cry of local
influence, i Vance could cret-thc nom

tliere is ho use in furnishing food for

A PROPOSED ItEDUCTIOX OF FIVE
MILLIONS IS GOVERNMENT EXPENSES.
Secial dispatch to tbe World.")
Washington, Jan. 25. The work
of retrenchment in the direction of
millions was inaugurated to-day in
the House Committee on Appropria
tions, where, bv a party vote, the
items of expenditure for the legisla
tive, executive and judicial branches
of the Government were reduced
largely. The salary of the President,
after March 4, 1876, was put at $25,
000. The salaries of Senators and
members are reduced 10 per cent, and
three officers of the House are abol
ished. The salaries of all officers of
Congress are not only put down from
the increase of last ' session, ' but are
reduced. 20 per cent., as are all the
clerks and bureau officials in the vari
ous departments. A sub-committee
on the appropriations was apjointed
to confer with the Senate committee
regarding these reductions, which are
estimated at $5,000,000. The Mili
tary Committee also had a meeting
to-day on General Bannings's bill to
reduce the pay of the army, but took
no action in detail. N. Y. World.
A Terrible Accident Probably Fatal
Result. On Friday, while a young man
named Jff Dupre was attending upon
the saw at Myatt's mill in Panther Branch
township in this county, he was accident
ally .caught by the lower saw which runs
in connection with an npper one for the
purpose of sawing logs of Urge diameter,
aud was drawn between the two, and
hurled on the mill floor behind then. He
was terribly lacerated, his back being cut
open the wh ile length of the trunk, his
right arm split from the shoulder to the
hand, his right elbow' dislocatt d, and the
hVeh of the right ancle cut to the bone.
How he escaped instant dea'h seems
miraculous. Accounts received of his
condition on Saturday afternoon represent
it as very critical. Ilnl. Aeics.

admits of few pauses fur broathingspells. How
frequently ond hears the phrase "driven .o

exhaustion aud mental excitement. Among
artificial rectperant of exhausted energy,
there i uot one that so p iwerfally couuteracts
the effects of fuigue as Hostettir's Stomach
Bitters, ahd next to that natural rest foi
which nothing can wholly compensate, it is
the bo.-t.and safest resource of thosewho are
obliged, or thiuk that they are, to undergo an
excessive amount of labor. Against tbe hQrt-
lul effect of exposure upon the sensitive or
gans, the Bitters are likewise in efficient pro
tective. A dose or two will often counteract
the effects which a severe wetting might
otherwise prtdnce, and tbo danger arising
from unhealthy or fatiguing occupations is
materially lessened by tbe daily use of this
most reliable fortifying cordial,4 which iposscs-
ses the additional recommendation of being an
excellent ahtisep'ic.or means of retarding bod
