in the United States in 1800.
The condition of the American wages
class nearly a century ago is full of in
struction. In the large cities, unskill
ed workmen were hired by the day,
bought their own food and found their
own hnlgings. But in the country, on
1 he taruis or wherever a hand was
employed on some public work they
were ttd and lodged by the employer,
and given a few dollars a mouth. On
the Pennsylvania canals the diggers
ate the coarsest diet, were housed in
the rudest sheds, and paid $0 a month
troin May to November, and $5 n
mouth from November to May. Hod
earners and mortar mixers, diggnrs and
cnopper, who iroin 1733 to 1800 la
boreu 011 the public buddings aud cut
the streets and avenues of Washington
received 70 a ye..r, or, if they wished,
$00 for all the work they could per
tonn from March 1 to Decernler 20.
The hours of work were invariably
troin sunrise to sunset. Wages at
Albany aud New York were 3., or, as
money then went, 40 cents a day; at
Lancaster, $8 to $10 a month; else
where in Pennsylvania' workmen were
content with SG in summer and $5 in
winter. At Baltimore men were glad
to be hired at 18d. a day. None by the
month asked more than SO. At Fred
ericksburg the price of labor was from
So to $7. In Virginia white men em
ployed by the year were given 0
currency; slaves, when hired, were
clothed, and their masters paid 1 a
month. A pound, Virginia money,
was, in Federal money, $3 33. The
average rate of wages all over the
country was 05 a year, with food and
perhaps lodging. Out of this small
sum the workiuin had, with his wife's
help, to m aintain his family.
' Th.9 Credit System.
! The Nebraska Supreme Court has
decided th it a mortgtge on a growing
crop cannot operate as a charge on
corn in the crib, even if proved to be
product of the mortgaged crop.
; The decision rests on a sound
and healthy basis, which rejects the
idea ot predicating something on no
thing, establishing a debt upon an in
visible and uncreated consideration,
that is possibly to be, but. is not in ex
istence, and is outside of sound reason
and good judgment.
The system of predicating the pay
ment of money borrowed, upon the
uncertain outcome of labor to be done
and crops to be raised, dependent upon
the uncertainties of seasons and favor
able weather, or the successful control
of that labor, has been the most dam
aging element in retarding the agricul
tural growth of the South as well as
the demoralization of its laboring pop
ulation, establishing a false and ruin
ous credit system, which is always de-
trimeutal to the laborer. aicnez
The best way tb attract and to hold
th attention is never to weary an au
dience, but to always to leave off with
something still unsaid. It is a mistake
to tell all that one knows in a first ef
fort, for during an ordinary life time
thpn will lie amole oooortnuities to
uslTall the information any one may
possess. Amateuri who aspire to the
dignity of professionals, should culti

Baltimore Sao. ' ?
The Rev. E. O. Eldridge, past or of
Exeter Street Methodist Episcopal
Church, also preached in the morning
on "The Flood and its Lessons." He
said: "The first lesson is man's weak
ness, God s greatness. Man made the
dam God nin e nature; and it was
one of nature's foreei that of ansel
fisli utility as compared with selfish
pleasure eeking. The true end of
man w service and not pleasure. s:nd
while happines always follous in the
wake of service, when sought us an
end in itself it is always a failure.
Who built that dam and what the
motives? A few wealthy men in the
city of Pittsburg, and for the purpose
of pleasure only, and notwithstanding
the fact that vigorous protests from
the citizens of Johnstown and vicinity
were entered at the time the work was
projected. We are told so careless was
the manner of the dam's eonstrnctiim
1 thH' th? mMy precautions for such
H structure were neglected. Tlius was
constructed the largest reservoir in the
world, two hundred feet and over
above the villages and cities of 50,000
people; many of whom were constant
ly in dread of its power. We do not
propose to place the responsibility, but
wilt say that if the facts have been
carefully reported, culpable and crimi
nal neglect has been indulged in. It
is a fair sample of the sel.fish, pleasure
seeking spirit that is abroad to-day.
Numerous trusts and syndicates, like
huge dams, are concentrating millions
of money for the enrichment arid
pleasure of the few at the expense of
the many. It lays its covetous hand
upon all the smaller firms, compels
them to enter or forcibly destroys, aud
when it has the commodity under its
control inflicts upon a helpless com-
mun.ty the anomallvof want and often
starvation in the midsjb of plenty."
The indications point to a railroad,
and we have put our engine on the
track. Our people should bear in mind
that an election will be held in this
county August 15th next to determine
whether or not Stanly will subscribe
$100,000 to the building of a railroad
through the county, beginning, at Sal
isbury and going in the direction of
Wudesboro a scheme by the Yadkin
Railroad Company. We don't know
much about the project, but it appears
hopeful, as much so perhaps 11s any
scheme of recent years. One thing we
do know, this route is the most natural,
the shortest and cheapest that can be
built in the county, and our citizens
should stand not only re.tdy but anx
ious to vote the subscription required.
We have a good county, rich in both
mineral and timber, but we can never
realize our wealth, nor feel our im
portance until we possess railroad facili
ties; therefore it behooves us as a peo
ple to work for this end. We cannot
get a railroad that will pass every man's
door, so patriotism should rise above
self and every mm labor and vote
for the common good. Stanly Obser
ver. A Wronsr Word Saves a Life.
Strange results have before now been
brought about through accidents in
writing, but it is questionable whether
the anecdotes have recorded anything
more curious than the saving of a
man's life through a slip of the pen.
Such a thing has just occurred in Si
lesia. A wheelwright named Kontuy
was indicted at the Oppeln Assizes for
the murder of his wife in a fit of jeal
ousy. The jury found him guilty by
seven votes to five amd sentence of
death was passed in the usual form.
When, however, the convict's advocate
came to examiue the record of the
verdict as written down by the fore
man of the jurv. he found that by a
slip the word "studen" had been acci-

the murderer had been found guilty
by "seven hours," instead of "seven
votes." Of course an appeal was im
mediately taken, and the Imperial
Court of Cassation, being unable to
make sense of the record, ordered a
new trial. The second jury was more
tender-hearted than the first, and Kon
tuy was only found guilty of man
slaughter, the penalty for which is
twelve years penal servitude. of.

Application, has been made by Jos.
Elias. formerly, government enginere
of the Lebanon, for a concession for a
railway from r:Haifa, on the Mediter
ranean, about -midway between Tyre
and Caesarea, by way 6f Lake Galilee,
over the river Jordan to Damascus.
Authority for the navigation of the
lake and priority of right for the exten
sion of a line over any other applicant
for three years is asked for. The line
is to follow the river Kifhon for six
milesrgoing within three and three
quarter Smiles of Nazareth, and then
ascending the valley to the watersheds
of the Jordan. The line will proceed
along the northwest of the lake close
to the plain of Genesaret, up the Jor
dan, crossing it about two miles below
Merim. ; From that point the line turns
toward the east to Damascus, a dis
tance of one hundred miles from the
coast. A branch line will go to Nao
va, the capitol of Hauren, with an
option to continue on to Bosra, the
ancient capitol of Ba-han.
The prac:ical part of Mr. Elias ap
plication is interesting. He estimates
the population to be served at 500,000,
or about 5,000 to the mile. Damascus
has about 200,000 inhabitants and
there are ten towns with from 1,000 to
10.000 inhabitants and about 5,040
villa. Although the district is
very fertile, only one-sixth of the ara
ble land is under cultivation There
is an abundance of streams, however, so

what he thought and said about stim

of giving counsel and administering

say, in a presence where such testimo

that they can do without. When I

A doctor happened to be telling his
family of an amusing scene he had
witnessed at a patient's house during
the day. "Mr. Brown," said the doc
tor, "was not seriously ill, but his wife
really made matters worse and herself
supremely ridiculous by rushing in and
out like a wet hen." The doctor's sonv
Bob, a very bright boy of six, was
present when his father said this, and
treasured his words. A day or two
afterwards Mrs. Brown called on the
doctor's familv. and when Bob came
into the room he sat down 011 a stool
and fixed his eves on the visitor. By
and by he asked very seriously, "Mrs.
Brown do vou know any thing about
a .vet lien ?" Of course she replied in
the negative, and Bob's face assumed a
very puzzled expression. After a brief
nause horrible to his sisters Bob
said: N"Well, it seems to me 3-011 ought

The prisoners in the Shelby j til who
are working on the streets have a rule
among themselves that whoever curses
or attempts to fight on the streets shall
be punished. On Tuesday Emanuel
Miller-broke the rules: on his return to
jail he was given ten blows with a
shingle by bacon us Lee, who wa ap
pointed executioner. The two new
prisoners who had just been put in jail
for sterrling, were punished with fifteen
blows each. Johnson Ithyne, who
acted as judge, told the new "prisoners
that if they had been put in jail for
fighting or selling liquor, they would
not have been punished, but as they
had been guilty of stealing they must
receive a good beating. The men bore
their punishment with bad grace.

- Bollingr Liquid Metal
Among the interesting and success
ful of-recent inventions is a rolling,
mill for producing sheet metal direct
from the molten state, instead of roll
ing it from a billet or bar. A ma
chine of this character has been at .
work for several months at the can
factory in May wood, near Chicago. It
is used for making sheet solder, six or
eight inches wide, and 15-1000 of an
inch thick, which it produces at the
rate of 400 feet a minute.
The app.1r.1tus consists of hollow
rolls with cold water running.between
them, The water is introduced through
the axles, and the rolls are of sufficient
size to at once change the jet of melt
ed metal into solid fprm as fast as it is
fed. The powerful compression is ex
erted by rolls upon the molten-metal
in forcing it between the two surfaces,
and at the same time changing it to a
solid body, tends to give the! sheet an
even an nighly finishe surface. The
inventors of the machine believe that
the principle could be successfully. ap
plied to the rolling of Bessemer j steel...
as well as to softer metals. Mr. 0. W.
Potter and other officers ot thaNorth
Chicago Rolling Mill Company recent
ly examined the machine and express
ed themselves as being favorably . im
pressed with its work.
