The red rose whispers of passion
Aiid the white rose breathes of love :
Oli. the red rose is a falcon,
And the white rose is a do,e. ..
But I ?end you a cream-white rosebud
With a flush on its petal ftp:
For the lore that is pure.-t and sweetest
Idas a kiss of desire on the lips.
No one is so accursed by fate.
No one so utterly desolate,
Bnt some heart, though unknown.
Responds unto its own:
Responds, as if with uusecn winirs
An angel touched iu quivering strings !
And whispers in its song.
" Where hast thou stayed so longtv
Tne Yellow Year.
The yellew year is hasting to its close;
The little birds have almost suug their last.

Of oozy brooks, which no deep banks define,
And the gaunt woods, in ragged, scant array,

Yet she'd shirk no household dutv,
And she even had a heart.
O'er her face sniilechnscd each other
Like the sumbeams in the rose
And she never let her mother
Sweep the steps or wash the clothes.
Every night the grand piano
Sang responsive to her touch
And this maid of charming manner
Oft made bread and pie and such.
She was fair of form and feature.
Diamonds paled beneath her glance

Used to mend her brother s pants.

We hope our people will discuss the
feasibility and the justice to wuck con
victs in each county where they are
convicted on the public roads and in the
swamps and other works, which will
take some of the burdens off the peo

weighedrit should be thought wiseand
judicious to adopt this plan, instead of
sending to the State prison, thejr let
the Legislature so order? or if it should
require a change in the constitution
let the work be begun at once. But
we think the Legislature can accom

The Returns By States.
INDICATIONS THAT THE NEXT HOUSE ;
WILL BK DEMOCRATIC BY 21 MAJORITY
Washington, D. C Nov. 8. The
latest returns at hand make it appear
that the Democratic majority in the
next House will be 21, including the
two labor men, whoit is understood will
both vote with the Democrats. It now
: seems that the Ilepulicans have elected
x four Representatives in California and
the Democrats two. The Democrats

North Carolina district, and the offi-
j eial count in the Seventh Ohio district

jority. The table of State Itepresenta-
! tives is as follows:
Secretary McPherson, of the Repub
lican Campaign Committee, says that
if the Republicans have a majority on
a vote by States in the House they will
filibuster to the end of both sessions
before they will allow the Democrats
to change result by a contested election
case. The only places where a change
of one vote would affect anything, he
sayi, are where the votes are too divir

"Mr. Long hits been elected to the

and to restore virility to superanuated

ised that if elected he would furnish a
special train to all who voted for him
to take them to Raleigh to witness his
inauguration in the legislature. He
said he did not want the voters to think
he was trying to fool them; for lie gave
it as his opinion that neither he nor
McAlister were fit to represent the

to say he will make a good member.
Kr Morrijson's Defeat.
The Democrats must pull themselves to
gether and not only nuike the b ft of
their Congressional leaders but learn wis
dom from it. The people are disgusted
with unfulfilled promises. What with flat
refusals to reform the tariff, with jobbing
River and Harbor bills and demagogic oleo
margarine bills, the people can see no dif
ference between Democracy and Republi
canism. A pushing, vigerou-t. reiorming
Democratic party is what the people want,
and not a mere bucket shop for speculating
on office. Tuesday's elections should teach
bolh the Democratic Administration and
Democratic Congressmen a valuable lesson.

Sunny South published a spicy article
on the subject of the outrage, lament
ing the sad lack of patriotism and com
mon sense on the part of this benigh

city" agreed that the law as interpreted
here was an imposition so far as it is
related to neir simpers; and the Council
some time ago struck the word "news
papers'' from the ordinance. Thursday
Miss Bligh again appeared in Lynch
burg and began a canvass for her paper:
but before she had' proceeded far Otiicer
Pendleton felt obliged to warn her to
desist unless she should first take out a
license. The young lady was indig
nant, and visited Judge Latham, asked
that functionary to grant her relief
from the State tax: but the Judge ex
pressed regret that he could not oblige
her. Miss Bligh then, to save further
annoyance, paid the license tax.

Baltimore Manufacturers' Record.
Gne of the most potent factors in
the present activity m the iron trade
is the very large railroad construction
in progress. A few months ago, when
it was predicted by the Itailtwy Agt
that the newrailway mtfenge of 18S6
wonld not fall short of 0,000 miles,
there was considerable donbt as to the
correctness of this statement, inasmuch
as the entire new mileage for 1885 was
only 3,131 miles. It is already proven
however, that instead of .stopping at
0,000 miles, the total will probably run
up to at least 7.000 miles, and possibly
more, or a larger mileage than in any
preceding year except in 18S1 and 1SS2.
The returns to the Ruiltmy Age show
that during the first ten months of the
3'ear there were 210 lines under con
struction and that 5.439 miles of new
main track were laid. As a large
amount of preliminary work has leen
done in the way of grading, bridge
building, &c, preparatory to actual
track-laying, which is now going on in
many State and on many roads, the

With th" exception of Texas, Honda,
North Carolina, Mississippi and Sooth
Carolina,- there has been rather le8 ac
tivity in the building Of new roads than
had been efpgeted. However, many of
thejinost important lines on which
track-laying was expected to have com
menced, are now getting into shape for
more vigorous work. The outlook for
railroad construction in the South
during the coming year is very good.
A number ol very important hues will
soon be under active construction and
within V year or two the railroad
mileage of the South will 1 largely in
creased. Miss Winnie Davis impresses New
Yorkers as a graceful and gracious,
sell-possessed, cultured and attractive
young lady. The idea that any person
of good sense or good' taste, least of all
the wife of the President, would avoid
meeting her on her father's account is
absaird. X. Y. Star.
Last year I suffered greatly from a Cold,
which 'had settled on my Lnngs. My
physician could do nothing for me, and
my friends believed me to be in Consump
tion. As a last resort, I tried Ayer's
Cherry Pectoral. It gave immediate re
lief, and finally cured me. I have not
the leant doubt that this medicine
SAVED MY LIFE.
I am now ruddy, healthy, and strong.
James M. Anderson, Waco, Texas.
Ayer's Cherry Pectoral cured me of
Throat and Lun troubles, after I had
been seriously afflicted for three years.
The Pectoral healed the soreness of the
Lungs, cured the Cough, ami restored my
general health. Ralph Felt, Grafton, O.
Twenty years ago I was troubled with a
disease of the Lungs. Doctors afforded
no relief, and said that I could not live
many months. I commenced using Ayer's
Cherry Pectoral, and, before I bad finished
one bottle, found it was helping me. J
continued to take this medicine untH a
cured was effected. 1 believe that Ayer'e
Cherry Pectoral saved my life, SaiuueJ
