The revival meeting conducted by Rev.
Mr. Pearson through a period of nearly
three weeks were brought to a close last
Thursday night. There was no loss of
public interest froin first to last, but the
contrary a constant increase iu the num

insufficient to accommodate them. It is
not known how many converts were
made, as a goodly number of them reside
in the country and will join country
churches; but it is estimated by those
well qualified to form an opinion on the
subject, that no less than three hundred
persons made a profession.
The beneficial result of these meetings
cannot be written in fiirurcs. Thev are
far reaching, and will extend through
years on earth and to eternity. They
cannot be estimated by any rule known
to finite beings. Only the infinite can
know them, and sum up the good

services for men at the Episcopal church

there are some remaining there without

This enterprise for Salisbury seems to
be a surety now. The committee ap
pointed to formulate a plan and solicit
subscriptions, received the first day and
a ha'f subscriptions to the amount of
$27,000. The list was then tni ued over
to another committee who propose to
subscribe enough more to hold a con
trolling interest. The stock is taken
mostly in small blocks and cyery one has
a chance to subscribe. The books will be
kept open for some time yet, sous to give
anv one from the country a chance who
wishes to put money in it.
The plan in a few words is : the stock
to be worth $100 a share, 10 per cent, of
this is to be paid the first day of June
next and the balance to be furnished as
called for. In copnection with this we will
say Commissioner Robinson has been look
ing up the cotton mill subject aud says
that mills iu North Carolina pay from 18
to 30 per cent, interest that's good
enough, don't you think?
He Got His Money.
A prominent farmer of Hopewell, Mr
J. N. Blythe, swore "Out a warrant this
afternoon against one of the ticket sellers
atthc circus. The circumstances were
these : When Mr. Blythe bought' his
ticket, the seller asked him to give him
gold for notes to the amount of $15. Mr.
lllythe handed over the gold and the sel
ler counted out two five dollar and five
one dollar bills. After Mr. -Blythe had
gotten the money he counted it over, and
there were but five one do'lar notes.
Constable Fisher went out to serve the
warrant but the man could not le found.
The money, however, was refunded bv
another party. 1 his was evidently theJ
"doubling bill game. Hornet,
The same game was tried here, and in

A CARD OF THANES.
in behatt ct the Young Hen's Christian
Association, I desire to tender thanks to
the citizens of Salisbury for the liberal
response made by them when ca'ded upon
to contribute money to defray expenses
incident to our recent religious services.
The young men feel encouraged in their
work when they have such conclusive
evidence of the moral and financial sup
port of our good people.

No rational man who wiy take the trou

fail to see that we have a great deal for
which to be devoutly thankful; and it is
manly and honest to give suitable expres

conscience for it. We commend the read

It has been an honored custom in the
Union as well as in the States, and one
sau ctioned by law, to have a day set apart,
once at lean iu every year, in which the
people shall assemble themselves for t he-
purposes of prayer and thanksgiving. In
obedience to this pious custom, and with
a siu cere desire to promote aud ner-
petuate it, I, Alfred M. Scales, by virtue
of the authority in me vested, do appoint
and set apart lhursday. the 24th of
November, as a day of thanksgiving and
praise to Almighty God, the Creator and
Redeemer of the world, for the goodness
and mercy that have followed us all our
days as a nation and as individuals; and

The Show. j
Any person not Knowing mat a circus
was to be in town, who happened on our
streets Monday morning, would never
have supposed that "G. H. Barrett's New
united Monster bhows" was about to
give "Amazing and Rapturous Revela
tions in the Realm of Entertainment,"
judging by the people in town.
Circus day, heretofore in the history cf
Salisbury, has always been a gala day
and marked by the people from the
country, almost pack iug our streets, but
this time it was very different, compara
tively few being in town and those most

quite the co'.urary. t
The circus performance was about the
same as is usually seen at a circus with a
few exceptionally daring feats. Three
clowns tried to amuse the audience with
their aged and mouldy chestnuts. There
semed to be more accrobats than is
usually seen with a circus, and most
wonderful to relate there was one quite
good looking girl connected with the
The juggling inside of the tent "dwin
dled down to a metaphysical insigi.ifi
cance" when compared with the juggling
done outsidp. There probably never was
a show in Salisbury before with as many
black -lerfs and gamblers connected with
it, and many a person went on the
grounds full fledged and came back
plucked. Many a person both white and
black was sorry to know that they were
going to leave Monday night and take
what money they had horded up with
them. All kinds of catches were ready
for the unwary. One fellow sold rings
for $1.00 and gave you a chance at either
one, two, fiv, ten or twenty dollars.
Another sold sticks of candy for fifty
cents and gave you a cnance at nnv or
one hundred dollars. It is needless to
say the chances you got were slim ones.
Another fellow for one dollar gave you a
cnance to win nve dv itnocKing down a
wooden pin with a ball.
Many were taken in, but it was not
altogether with the showman, it remain

sixty-five dollars and then have the
manager of the concern arrested and it
cost him twenty dollars as costs, and he
was made to disgorge the other sixty-fix e.
TT a WW m-
in our opinion tne j. 11. yi. was 111st as
guilty of gambling as the other fellow
and both ought to have been punished.
The attendance of the circus was very
slim, not more than five hundred at the
afternoon performance and probably not
more than one hundred and fifty at the
night performance. When it is remem
bered that the bills say "actual daily ex
pense $3,500," it will be seen that the
concern lost money here.

fact to any one who will accept a conclu

powerful and produced a deep and per

of many hearers. Their thoughts ou re

into new and unobscured channels, and

aud comparatively easy to mine and is
for the most part free milling. The
average gradeof the material is low, and
this fact is fully understood by the man

Mr. E. W. Lyon, general manager of
the Mann-Arrington mine, in Nash coun

where he has been purchasing the equip
ment for thi valuable property. The
purchase includes a twenty-stamp mill,
bolsters, concentrators, pumps and a
complete stock of goods. They Will ran
a store the mine being distant from sup
plies for the accommodation of the large
force of miners. The first work engag
ing the attention of the management will
be the setting of the plant preparatory to
working the miue to its capacity. It
will be remembered that the property
has already been fully exploited, and
proven by ample mill tests. Those en
gaged iu the work and those who have
made the investment share alike in the
belief that they have a property that will
yield good returns in bullion and that it
is of sufficient extent to keep the work
active for a lorg term of years.

FISH Kit MINE (CABARRUS CO.)
We were shown some very rich brown
ore from this property a day or two ago,
specked all over with gold.
This property is owned by Buis, Miller,
Smith & Co.. and consists of 30 acres of
land in a . long strip, with a length of
veins of one half a mile on the property.
The veins consist of two of brown ore
with an average of fourteen inches, and
one large quartz and one large slate.
This property has only been worked as a
prospect, a shaft thirty-nine feet deep
sunk on oue of the brown ore veins and
a level driven thirty feet at this depth.
