Methods of Courting.
Among the ancient Assyrians all
marriageable young girls were assem

put them up for sale one after another
says a writer in the Epoch. The mo
ney which was received for those who
were handsome, and consequently sold
well, was bestowed as a wedding por
tion on those who were plain. JVVhen
the most beautiful had beon disposed

trees in the public walks and up6n the
leaves of books.? He would decorate
the door of her house with garlands,
and make libations of wine before it,
in the manner that1 was practiced in
the Temple of Cupid. j
According to Dr. Hayes, courtship
among the E-qnimaux has not much
tenderness about it. The match is
made by the parents of the couple.

does not get her to his hut before she

damsel is a vigorous one, and may have
reasons of her own for object. ng to his
attentions. The lover may then be
obliged to "club her again, and as that
is considered to be somewhat of a re
flection on the ardor with which his
earlier effort was made, he h apt to
put as much soul and muscle into his
first love pat as he can summon.

tribes insist upon a foot race between
the bride and bridegroom, to decide the
question of marriage, and others re

some sections of Asia the lover must

auspicious month, and on the first Sun

other out of countenance, and then re
tire to make up their minds on the
second Sunday, which is c tiled decision'
day. The young men go up and pay
their compliments to the fair ones of
their choice, to learn if they are re
garded with favor. On the third Sun
day, or day of purchase, the swain is
expected to snatch the pocket-handkerchief
of his adored one, and if she sub
mits to it with good grace he under
stands that his chances of winning her
are flattering. The captured pledge is
restored to the fair owner on the
fourth Sunday, the -"Sunday of taking

the damsel refuses the lover for whom
she has indicated a preference. On the
Sunday following the suitor, according
to custom, calls at the house of his

Lt Got. Holt ;
Hon. Thomas M. Holt, of Alamance,
our new Lieutenant Governor, is a citi
zen whom the people of the State have
long delighted to honor. He is a repre
sentative of what is most progressive
in manufacturers, in agriculture and
otherwise among us. He is an earn
est, patriotic son of the .State success
ful as a farmer, successful as an officer
of the-State. i- He has hewn his own
way to more than one high place in
the public life1 of the State and has ever
maintained the positions gained with
credit to himself and practical advan
tage to Js orth Carolina. He has proven
the possession of ability not only in
the management of his private affairs
but of the affair. of the State. He is
one of our most reliable conservatives,
solidly progressing men of to-day.
Col. Holt was, before the war, a mag
istrate and a member of the special
court under our old county court sys
tem. He was twice elected by the peo
ple of Alamance county Commissioner
and served as chairman. In the fall
of 1876 he was elected to the State
Senate from Alamance and Guilford,
and in 1882 and in 1884 and 1880 he
was elected to the House. In Janu
ary, 1885, he was elected Speaker of
the House and presided with ability.
Twelve ye.irs he was President of the
North Carolina Railroad Company and
he has long been an influential mem
ber of the State Board of Agriculture.
Eight years he was President of the
North Carolina State Agricultural So
ciety and rendered conspicuous public
service in that position.
The following further sketch of his
life we find quoted from the "New
South" in "Dowd's Sketches of Prom
inent Living North Carolinians:"
"Col. Thomas M. Holt, of Haw Uiv

Emily Holt, of Alamance county, N.

was prepared for college at Caldwell
Institute, Hillsboro, and matriculation
at the University of North Carolin e in
1849; but so strongly was he imbued
with the spirit of his father, and being
more fond of his factory than of col-
lege fame, he left Chapel Hill iu 1851,

Haw Kiver, near Ilaw River station, on
the north side of the North Carolina

are the largest and best equipped mills
in North Carolina, and rank with any
in the Southern States." They contain
8,524 spindles and 434 looms, and give
constant employment to -izo men.

Stanly at Bonalya. !
Brussels, Jan., 10. Last night's
post brought, from the Belgian Govern
ments representative at Zanzibar a
letter from Henry M. Stanly, written
on Aug. 17 hist, to Sheik Hamed-ben-Mashomed
( Tippo Tib), whom it fouud
at Stanley talis on the Upper Congo,
on Aug. 18. Tippo Tib immediately
sent the letter by message to Zanzi
bar, where it hsis been ever since.
Bonyala, from which place Stanley
dates his letter, is an entrenched camp
on the Aruwhimi, seventy miles north
of Stanley Falls, which the explorer
uses for his base of supplies.
The announcement of the arrival of
the letter at Zanzibar, with an outline
of its contents, was published on Dec.
21, and its publication now adds little
to the information already received
concerning Stanley s fate. The date
of the reported capture of Stanley and
Emin by Osman Digna was OctlOth,
long subsequent to the date of the let
ter. The letters which are said to
place the safety of Stanley beyond dis
pute are yet to be published. " A num

London, Jan. 10. Concerning Stan

explorer's previous dispatches aud fur

He expects that further reports from
Stanley will shortly be forthcoming.
A great deal of speculation is rite as to
why the letter to iippo lid was for

yet no theory has been arrived at

Inauguration of Fowls.
Raleigh, Jau. 17. Daniel O. Fowle
was inaugurated as Governor of North
Carolina in this city to-dav. The inau
gural address vr s delivered at S ronch's
Warehouse, and the Governor was sworn
iu by Chief Justice Smith. r7"
- After the reception at the capital of
the Legislature, and before reaching the
warehouse, the military were reviewed
by the Governor and his staflUn front of
the Yarborough Hotel.
The proceedings at the warehouse
were opened with prayer by Rev. John
S. Wat kins. The house was handsomely
decorated and presented, a splendid ap
pearance. Gov. Scales introduced tke Governor
elect in a few well-timed remarks.
THE IN AUG UK AL ADDRESS
was delivered in Gov. Fowle's usual hap
py style and was received with every
demonstration of indorsement. It was
a plain straightforward statement of the
policy that would characterize the ad
ministration of his high office.
The Governor places himself on record
in no unmistakable terms against the

A correspondent of the New York
Evening Post gives a graphic account
of the way in which money was spent by
both parties to carry ew Hampshire at
the last Presidential election. He de
scribes Senator Chandler hastening from
Washington to the rescue of the imper
illed State, and how, when he saw the
manner in which things were going, he
hastened back to Masachtuetts, where
he obtained such large sums frm the
manufacturers' that "he returned laden
with fat." The Democrats also, he says,
were well supplied with money, and the
contest depended on the longest purse.
"In one of the large villages in the
northern part of the State the price of
votes was openly run up in the town hall
to $225 apiece. In another of the back
tcrvvns the vote for Representatives "was
a tie on the first ballot, and ou the second
ballot the price of votes was bid up to
$95 each. In Manchester the overseers
iu the mills-stood on the streets, mouey
in hand, and bought votes openly." He
adds: "The worst of it was that the
money was given by men who knew per
fectly well the uses to which it was to be
put. They were the large Republican
manufacturers' and merchants of the
Northern States. They were the promU
ueut members of our churches, and they
have done more to demoralize our poli
tics than Tweed ever did in New York."
