Advertisements are Read.
It is a fact, .says the Waterbury Repub
lican, that newspaper readers do not
slight advertisements. They have come
to realize that advertisements in a news
paper represent the goods which the mer
chants have for sale, and they take pains
to familiarize themselves with what
storekeepers have to offer." Moreover,
the constituency oi a paper are very apt
to be governed by what they read in their j
own paper. If tne paper is accepted in
its political, moral and intellectual tone
as ourfhome paper, its advertisers share
the respect aud confidence bestowed upon
the paper itself. This is an important
fact for advertisers to remember.

I It is a good thing for some of our peo

Then too we are afraid our butchers

He was born in Guilford county, near
Greensboro the 15th of May 1846; En
tered the Confederate array at the age of
fifteen, but was ""discharged in a short
time on account of his youth. He then
removed to Kernersville Forsyth county.
In May 1864, being then eighteen years
of age, he was assigned to duty at the
garrison in Salisbury where he remaiued
till the close of the war.
In 1870 he returned to Salisbury-and
was employed as salesman by McNeely
& Walton, subsequently becoming a
member of the firm of Walton & Ross,
Ross & Greenfield, and the last two years
of his mercantile life, did business alone.
He was enterprising and successful,
and a more popular merchant never did
business here. But misfortune overtook
him, and he was forced to give up met
chandising five years ago, since which
time he bought aud sold cotton, contrib
uting largely to the increase of the col
ton market of this place. Mr. Ross had
numerous friends all over the state who
will regret to know that he is no more
on earth. The bereaved family, wife aud
fjur children, have the heartfelt sym
pathy of the entire community. The re
mains were taken to Kernersville for
interment in compliance with a request
made before his death.
The Pension Law.
. Mr. A. H. Boyden, having had occasion
to write to the Secretary of State, Mr.
Saunders, in regard to the effect of the
late amendment to the Pension Act, pass
ed by the last General Assembly, his let
ter wa handed to Mr. Sanderliu, the
Auditor, to answer. The point forming
the subject of inquiry was as to whether
the payment of pensions would be made
this year under the new or the old act.
To this the Auditor answers as followsr
" I enclose herewith a copy of the said
Act for your information in the premises.
By reference to sec. 19 you will see this
Act does not go into eilect until after
the' year 1889. (See first proviso of said
section). Pensions for the present year
will be paid out under the old law.
Those who have formerly drawn a pen
sion under the old law will not be re
quired to renew their application under
the new act, although certain inclina
tion at the proper time may be required
of them in order to accomplish the clas
sification required in section one. In
addition to a copy of the new law I also
enclose a copy of the old, and would
again repeat that the pension to be paid
out the present year will be paid accord
ing to the provisions of the old and not
the new law." ' '
In addition to this we copy the 19th
section ofthe new law, referred to above,
as sustaining the answer given by Mr.
Sanderliu, as follows:
Sec. 19. That all laws and clauses of
laws coming iu conflict with this act are
hereby repealed : Provided, that uotbing
in this act contained shall be construed
to repeal or in any wise interfere with
the appropriation and payment of pen
sions provided for in chaptertwo hun
aud fourteen of the laws of one thousaud

uAu act for the relief of certain soldiers
of the late war between the States," as
amended by chapter one hundred aud
sixteen of the laws of one thousand

year one thousand eight hundred and
eighty-nine : Provided further, the appro
priation made by the present act shall be

ter two hundred and fourteen of the laws

amended by chapter one huudred and

A fight in the streets of oar town ' has
got to' be a rarity. It was far more com
mon yeaM ago, when the population' of
the town was cot half 'what it 'it; now.
The prfieut generation Is certainly an.
improvement on preceediug ones in this
respect. It may be due, and we think it
is, that there Is vastly less drunkenness
n o w than in former times. The whiskey
and brandy of . those days were home
mode products free from all of kinds of
adulterations and doctoring; cheap, and
and not so deadly in their effects as those
of to-day, but yet produce drunkenness
and fights. Almost everybody then
drank, and a much larger prportion of
the population drank to excess, and
hence came the frequent fisticuffs on
ojr streets, especially on public days
at General musters, political meeting?,
election aud show days, &c. But all
this h.is changed. The covered wagon
with the hind gate let down and serving
as a table or couuter, where men could
buy a pint or a gallon of whiskey, bran
dy, cider-royal or sweet cider, and stand
aroaa 1 a:i J dria, a i l e.it guier bread,
is gone gone glimmering iu the almost
forgotteu past; and those who now want
"a little" must go into a licensed retail
shop and get a single drink, nnd pay as
much for it as he paid for a quart in
former timts villianous liquor at that
bad enought to burn out his ''copper"
iu a few years. This change iu the cus
toms of the people, has doubtless pro
duced the change in their habits. Public
sentiment iu respect to ' drinking has
changed, and instead of condoning the
offense of drunkeuness has put upon it
its condemnation. The habitual or even
occasional iuebriant cannot now com
mand postious of trusts aud confidence.
He is looked upon as a leprbues crea
ture, a subjest of pity, and is never
thought of when a reliable man is want
ed. If a church member, as some of
them are, his name on the church book
is smirched with records which will go
down to future generations and tell his
character. If of a belicose nature when
drunk, the records of the Courts perpet
uate the memory of his deeds and char
acter. Public sentiment, made up from
facts like these, is far stronger than it
once was, and is a' powerful factor, iu
restraining drunkenness, and institut
ing safe-guards for the protection ofthe
young aud thoughtless. It should be
strengthed by the cheerful support of
every muu aud woman iu thtjland; for iu

this the tide of war turned south and

Mi. Pleasant has become what she is. Is the
beginning of his early residence here, the
building of N.C. College was conceived, and
he was one of the first men who "gave it his
heaity support. Not only did he use his influ
ence and genius for the grand olo cause of ed
ucation, tut cheerfully did he reach down in
bis full pocket and from thence pull out thi
thousand dollars at a time, and gladly donate
it for the erection and suppart of X. C. College,
upon which the pro3peritr of this place has

He was elected a Trustee of .his college at its
founding, and remained In this nnsitirtn until
he tendered his resignation at a call-meeting
of the N". C. Evangelical Lutheran Svnod at

officer closed his life of truly devoted attach

was a tedious trip through the country
to the home in Randolph county, where
her noble husband was murdered. As
the country was still unsafe, Mrs. Balfour

over-worked eyes, and have tried vari

well pleased with the result.

cravats, &c., aud utter having gotten fit

"grab it" and if you ain't got cents "enougU to know a bargain
when you see it, git yur nabur to come wid you and see how she
will buy as long as she has cents. Oh! I tell you we can paral
yze you on our prices and the;rush still goes on. - ; .

Said Sal to sister Lou;
And with but little cash to 'spend,

And Jots of these D. G. men

They'll lie like sixty, any laOwv
About how cloth is made.
And some they stick the dollars on,
AncLthen you have to Jew
Till they take off what they put on
Whispering, Just for you. -
Now I don't like that kind o7 way,
And darn me if I know
With just the little cash I've got
Where 'tis best to go.
Says Lou to Sal, I know your fix,
For I've been thar, too,
But you'll get over that right quick
If you trade where I do.
Just try Van Wck, andyrou can tie
To every word he says, '
And lay your money out with him,
And you'll be satisfied it pays.
His prices are way down. below
The prices others ask;
The folks that try to sell "with him
I tell you has a task.
Low prices, quality the best,
Large stock and goods all new,

To sell to me and you.
