happening to pass that way next morn

hear the music and dancing still going
on. He entered and found a few
couples keeping lazy time to the sleepy
music. The eyes of the fiddler were
closed, and his head lay carelessly on
the fiddle he was sawing. The visitor
touched: him. His-eyes came slowly

hitched their horses in the vacant lot
in rear of Beall, Bost & Foard's Tobac

er was driving a buggy. They had
some trading to do, and when they

they hacfc been stolen. The horse and

some four miles from town on States

Took it for the Jail.
An intelligent gentleman, and a
prominent Presbyterian, by the way,
was in Salisbury last week and very
naturally rooked up the church. When
he got in the neighborhood he thought
he must be mistaken and so enquired:
"This is the jail, I suppose? point
ing to the little square session house in
the corner of the church yard.
The passing citizen replied : "No, sir,
that is the session house.
"I thought it must be the jail, as it
is so near the court-house'
It does not require a streteh of im
agination to conjecture the Presbyteri
an church building a court-house, for
its exterior is anything but churchly in
appearance. There is considerable
talk among the members of the con-
gregation tavonng tne building or a
new church. Why not? The church
should keep abreast of the progress of

and that it is likely to become a farm
er s movement. The idea now seems
to be for the farmers to take the whole
matter in hand. Some prominent farm-
er in eacn townsmp will oe requested
to open lists for enrolling stock, and
wjjen enough is taken, these farm
ers will meet and organize, electing
proper and skilled persons to take
This looks like the right way to do
it. Mr. McNeely invites farmers who
are interested to call and see him. He
will gladly talk the matter over with
them, giving them the advantages to
be derived in detail. The advanced
price on stained cotton alone, he says,
will pay a good percentage on the
amount invested. The mill would use
up all the stained cotton in making
unbleached goods, and would save the
tanner the sacrifice he is obliged to
make in disposing of this grade of cot
ton. Mr. McNeely says that he has already
an offer of five or ten acres in the edge
of town as a gift, on which the factory
may be built. There is something in
this scheme, and the farmers of the
county are the menrto work it up, since
the benefits must accrue largely to
The commissioners of our lively
neighboring town, Winston, have pass
ed an ordinance making it obligatory
on property owners to pave with brick
the streets in front of their property,
in the central part of the town. If
the owner does not do it in a TrPsnn'K
ed time, the work is done by the town
at tne expense of the owner, and should
payment be refused it is collected out
of the property.
That looks like something! Real live
men have a good hold of Winston and
they will make a town of it. Why
not lay holdJiere ? The town of Salis
bury is not burdened with debt, and
the property owners, as a rule, are am
ply able to lay a brick pavement around
Good judgment is displayed in select
ing brick for walks. They make a du
rable, easy walking pavement, and when
laid with care make a beautiful street.
The centre or business part of town
should always be paved, and brjck is
better than stone for this purpose, be
cause of their yielding, or seeming elas
ticity. The fact that the streets of Salisbury
are being repaired with dirt, quasi
gravel, where once there were brick
pavements, is to be deplored. The ma
terial that is being used is good for the
side streets, and makes a fair walk, but
in the business part of town, (and it is
sufficiently compact to justify the work )
neat, durable pavements should be laid.
Winston is right in making the laying
of good pavements compulsory. Will
the commissioners of Salisburv in mi cm-
rate the work ? Will they take the
lead in this important matter?

"This metal can take the place of al
most every other metal in the world, and
very largely that of wood also. In the
first place it is very strong. Its tensile
strength is more than three tons to the
square inch greater than those of the best
Bessemer steel. In fact, it is by far the
strongest metal known. A cannon made
of it would be three times as strong as one
made of steel or gun metal. It is very
stiif or rigid, too: three times as .rigid as
the best of bronze. Another important
thing is that it will not tarnish. Neither
air, nor water, nor salt, nor acids, nor
corrosive gases have the slightest effect
upon it. Neither does intense heat change
its color. It is the best conductor of heat
known in the world, also of electricity.
It would make the best telegraph wires
in the world, having twice the conduct
ing power of copper, with only a third of
its weight, and lasting practically forever.
It is very ductile, and can be drawn into
wire more easily than almost any other
metal. Moreover, it is easily worked,
either hot or cold. It is suitable for any
thing that iron or steel or copper or brass
or bronze or gold or silver is used for,
from the wheels of a watch to a monster
steam engine. In weight, compared with
other metals, it is by far the lightest;
lighter, indeed, than many hard woods.
It is little moreihan one-third the weight
of cast iron. To be exact, a cubic foot of
aluminum weighs only 166 pounds. The
same sized block of cast iron weighs about
451 pounds; of wrought iron, 487 pounds;
of copper, 554J pounds; of lead, 709 pounds;
of bra?s, 528 pounds, and of gold about
1,200 pounds. In brief, it is the lightest,
easiest worked, strongest, most durable,
and generally most valuable of all metals."

SALT? RHEUM OR ECZEMA.
In April, 1884, there appearaed on my
feet and legs what the doctors called Salt
Rheum, which produced intense stdferrng.
1 tried a great many remedies, and had the
attention of one otour best physicians, but
received no permanent relief. The dis
ease continued to grow worse and my
limbs were greatly inflamed. I was finally
induced to try Swift's Specific, aud after
taking four bottles relief came! I contin
ued, however, until I had taken seven
bottles, and am now sound and well, and
not a sign of the disease left. Mygeneral
health has greatly improved, and I most
cheerfully recommend S. srSras being the
best blood purifier that I have ever known.

I have been afflicted a nnmler of years
with cancer, and have tried-all the reine-
dies suggested for this terrible disease '
without any benefit. Six bottles of the
Swift's Specific has done me more good
than all the medicine I had taken. My
strength has. returned, and I can walk
farther and take more exercise than' I have
been able to do for years, ffs effects have
been wonderful and the cancer has greatly
improved. W. Shiesliuc.

Swift's Specific is entirely vegetable,
and seems to cure cancers by forcing oat
the impurities from the blood.
For 25 years I have suffered from the j
effects of Mercury and Iodide of Potassium.
I was salivated in a most fearful way, and
was given up to die. I havp had no relief
from anything I have taken for it, and I
have tried everything, until now, that I
have taken a course of Swifts Specific, It
has entirely cured me. It also cured me of
