A VERY AGREEABLE SURPRISE.
Sometime since, tlie llev. R. L. Hi own
married -a couple of some pecuniar' stand
ing, for which he expected to receive, at
least, some comiMinsuion. At the time
ofthe marriage the license wis handed to
him folded, with the names of the parties
on the biick. The" wedding all passed
over, and not aword said about any tee.
The minister returned home with the sup
ination that he had made another water
haul. But, more than two weeks after,
when the' attached certificate was to be
filled the license Was opened -and a beau
tiful V fouud inside. Mr. Browu is much
obliged; aiid affirms that all such parties
shall be furnished with a beautiful guilt
marriage certificate. He would uot care
to be surprised again.
This was better fare than a certain
Prosbvterian minister we wot of had for
renderiug a similar service. He received
his fee in the dark, just before mount
ing his horse to go home. It was
a coin, aud he dropped it into his pocket
without knowing- its value. The bride
: 5100m was a dressy,"Bplurging fellow, of
- some considerable standing, and the par
don had no doubt he had done a clever
thing for him. His fingers touched the
piece next morning and he hauled it out
to inspect it, and tbunjl a iftlcer quarter.
A Lotcer Class of Government Iionds.
It is now. urged in financial circles that
the government, iu order to secure a wide
distribution of its bonds . in the hands of
most thrifty citizens in all parts of the
'country, and as a measure of security for
the people themselves, issue bonds bear
ing four or five per. cent, interest, and of
small denominations ranging from ,25
upward. This ijdea was oue of the most
judicious features of Hie late message of
Mr. Hayes. A" very large amount of
bonds would soon be absorbed through
this scheme, besides giving to a uumeroug
class of citizens an interest in the stability
ot the government hitherto unknown to
them. Charlotte Observer.
vtv von- much vo'Tct the attacks of
The Greensboro Xew State upon Senator
Merrimon. We were present in Raleigh,
during the Senatoral struggle of 1872, and
we know that no bargain wa3 made be
tweeii the Republican members of the
Legislature aud Judge Merrimon. There
were leaders of the Republican party who
preferred Gov. Vance, and used all their,
influence to have the Republican vote cast
for him. Republicans voted against Jov.
Vance because they thought by so doing
they could divide arid distract the
Democratic party. They expected no other
benefits than this. Therefore, we regret
that Senator Merrimon should be de
nounced as au ingrare when lie was elect
ed without any effort on his part. So far
as gratitude is concerned, we know that
Senator Merrimon acknolwedges that he
owes every man that voted for him for
Senator, a debt of personal gratitude,
which he is ready and auxious to discharge
whenever a fit opportunity presents itself
to do so.
Senator Merrimon is -it part of North
Carolina. . So far as his reputation and
character as a public man representing
hir State is concerned, that which tends
to destroy standing as Senator, does au
injury toJ the .State. While the beuator
is not of onr political faith, we feel it our
dnty to uphold him as far as we can, and
thus enable him to lie of all service possi-
li1 tit h St.itp. and neonle. A man 01
greater purity of character than Judge
Merrifnon, has never represented North
Carolina iu any public capacity. Being
si self-made man. aud havinjr risen to Jiis
present high position by his own exertions
we should regret the occurence ot any
thinir tpndinir to iinnair his usefulness as
a man and Senator.
It is not probable that the Republicai
members of the next Legislature will be
called upon to decide the contest for Sena
tor. If there should he no chance of elect
ing a Republican, It willJbe the impera
tive duty of the Republican members to
cast their, votes for the man who can be
of the most service to the State without
regard to party. Raleigh Register.

OUR LADY LAWYER.
At the beginning ofthe present term ot
the Supreme Court,- Miss Tabitha Aune
Holton, of Jamestown, iu Guilford county,
applied to be examined for licence at the
same-time as the other applicants, but
the Court declined to so examine until
the point as to whether the law ofthe
State woultT admit women to practice at
the bar had been decided. Accordingly,
yesterday morning was selected as the
time for hearing the argument in the case.
At the hour of 10 a. m., she made her
appearance iu the Court room, accompan
ied by Hon. A. W. Tourgee, her couusel,
who began the argument of the case be
fore the Judges. In the course of his
speech, which lasted about an hour and a
half, he took the following grounds in fa
vor of permission of examination being
"ranted: The Statute does not debar
women from practicing the legal piofes-
sion, as the "person" is used, nor is the
sex anywhere specified. The Court had
so extended the meaning of the word
person" as to include colored people,
when at the time the statute became a
aw it was never contemplated that its
provisions could or would be so construed.
The word "person" is always used to
designate persons appointed administrv
tors or executors. The law .further Rays
that any persons who may Invve obtained
license to practice iu other States, shall,
on producing such license, lie permitted
to practice iu our courts, so a woman ad
mitted into the profession in one of those
States, would of course be received here ;
we could not debar her. Five States ad
mit females to practice by statute, three
by construction of a law similar to ours,
while in the District of Columbia and in
nearly or perhaps all of the FederalCourts
in the Northwest they have the same
rights iu this respect as are accorded to
At tbo Rnme. time of the enactment of
the statute of this State 011 this subject,
the Legislature never thought ot a wo
man's making application for admission
into the profession, but 111 the great pro
gress of events woman's sphere has be
tended that the sex is now
represented in almost all the professions
In the United States one woman is a presi
dent of a bank, while two banks have
lady cashiers. Many women have risen
to eminence in the profession of medicine,
and at this moment one of them is a mem
ber of the Medical Society of this State
Continuing his remarks he referred to the
wife of Earl Russell, who, when that no
bleman waa arraigned on a charge of trea
son, prepared hi defence. Citing other
instances of her ability to master the in
tricacies ofthe law, be concluded by as
sertiug that no man can give any reason
why a woman cannot undertake any hon
est work for her support.
After this hearing of the case, the Court
decided to permit the examination of the
lady applicant, and this at one began.

severe Coughs, Pneumonia and other diseases
ofthe Throat and Lungs, giving the American
people undeniable proof that German syrup

A. Very Good Reason.
The reason why onlv one sample liottle of
Mekukl's Hepatine for the Liver will be sold
to the same-person, for ten cents, by our Drug
gist, Theo. F. Kluttz is because of the enormous
expense of importing the Hepatine into this
country : but as there are fifty doses in the large
size hollies, it seems two cents per done ischeap
enough afterall for a medicine that cures dys-
nevsia and liver complaint. All who have not
had a sample bottle are entitled to one for ten
cents at Theo. F. Klultz's Drug store. Three
doses relieves any case of dyspepsia, constipa
tion, indigestion or liver complaint, in the
world. Regular size boltles.lifly do?es, 1,00.

Now and Then.
It is only now and then that such men as
Hon. Alex. II. Stephens, Ex-Gov Smith and
Ex -Gov. Rrown of Ga., endorse a medicine for
the throat and lungs, and when they do it is
pretty good evidence that the remedy must be
good'for the cure of coughs, colds and lung af
fections. They recommend the Globe Flow
rr CniTftit Syrup, and their testimonials are
to be seen round the ten cent sample bottles of
the Globe Flower Syrup, for sale by Theo. r.
Klntti. A sample bottle relieves the worst

bottles, fifty doses, $1.
