Col. Fred Grant
The nomination of this gentleman
for Secretary of State of Ntw York by
the Republicans shows the desperate
ttruits of the Grand Old Party in the
Empire State. The only qualiticatioti
he poaMew for this clerical office iS in
the fact that he is a son of General
Grant. This Ire himself proclaims iti
n is apeech in New York last Saturday.
Here is the entire speech i
My ppeech will be very short. I want
to thank you fur your cordial reception.
tMrovId i tie detected in November 1 will
try d show that I have inherited the
ability of ray father, and be faithful to
thetrttst that you in me. I again
lhank you for your cordial reception.
The young man has left us in the
dark as to the particular kind of ability
he desires to snow the people he has
inherited from his father whether his
magic power as a soldier, his original it v
as a statesman, his unparalleled Execu
tive gifts, his intuitive knowledge of
l&eiH or his brilliancy as a financier.
It mast hare been the last, as the old
General was more distinguished as a
financier than in any other capacity.
I tllot Mountain.
This isolated but remarkable moun
tain is likely to loom up in the world's
attention far beyond anything hereto
fore known of it. A railroad is now
completed from Greensboro, via old
Germantovvn, to the base of the moun
tain,, so that it is now a comparatively
pleasant trip to visit it. It was recent
ly visited by two Methodist Sunday
Schools of Greensboro and several other
schools along the route who joined the
excursion, making a party of GOO men,
women and children. Quite an inter
esting account is given of it by a cor
respondent of the Raleigh News-Observer.
Only 150 of the party reached
the top of the pinnacle, of whom 39
were ladies. The ascent to the top is
difficult and somewhat dangerous, as it
must be made by ladders. Of course
those who reached the top were
- m - m
abundantly rewarded by the lnagnm
ceiitTscenery, which is described as very
grand and impressive.

Tin Plates.
The Scientific American says a patent
has recently been granted to Mr. Wil
liam H. Hrowu, of Jersey City, for a
novel process of manufacturing con
tinuous fin plates. The plates are
made of steel, and the process consists
of producing a sheet of steel of any
continuous length and required width
by first rolling the metal hot and af
terward rolling it cold, until a proper
thickness and perfectly smooth surface
is obtained; it is then scoured, and
passed through a bath of molten tin.
and again between the rollers. It is
employed for all the purposes for
which ordinary tin phites are used,
though the jnventor claims for the
phites made by this process greater
superiority ht durability over those of
any other.
-The Western Carolinian of Hickory.
Kpudcs in pleasant terms of the success
ful working of the prohibition law in
Yancey county. It has been in opera
tion for two years, and many of its
opponents at the election are now its
friends and supporters. Only one man
was indicted at the last Court for the
violation of the law, and he submitted,
paid the cost and gave a bond of $500
not to violate t! e law again. The ef
fects of the law is, easily seen on the
Court dockets of the county by reduc
ing indictments, &c. They are also
evwVncedby more liberal attention to
schools, and religious matters.
The editor of the Carolinian has re
cently visited Roan mountain, tie
was profoundly affected by the scenery,
and jots down his impressions and
thoughts on the occasion. He con
cludes his remarks as follows : 'The
men who beliere in God should go
there to feel more than ever before
that they are iu His presence, and the
men who don't believe in God should
go there tk feel as they never felt be
fore and come away asking themselves,
uHow curi these things be?'

"The value of the taxable property of
the county is about one aud ouc-half
million dollars ($1,500,000.) There has
not been a public building erected or a
railroad subscription voted since the war,
and at the time the Democratic party,
under the present Tory system of county
government, took control of the liiianccs
of the county it was out of debt and its
scrip was worth 100 cents on the dollar.
Last year the tax ou property was 67 i
cents on the $100 and $2 02 on the poll".
This year4 notwithstanding the General
Assembly reduced the State tax 5c on
the $100, Yadkin will have to pay 88
cents on the $100 worth of property and
$2.65 on the poll. An increase of 26

A Word to Young Men.
If young men wish to succeed in busi
ness, they must not spend their time and
money in having simply a good time.
They must not be discontented with the
little place they are in, because they
think they are too big for it. The Avav to
get into a large place is to outgrow the
one you are in grow until it is so small
that it will not hold you any longer. A
man who simply sits shrunk up and
worthless in a little place, because he
thinks it is not worth while to grow
enough to fill that, has little prospect of
getting into a larger one. Fit! the place
that you are in. Study ahead of where
you are. Fit yourself, for higher useful
ness, to do that, you must do something
besides play, though that mav be inno
cent in itself. Jlcv. M. J. Savage.
