We think that the postoffice depart
ment is not giving this Fectioa of the
State all the mail facilities to which it
is entitled. The whole department is
not to blame, however; it i3 some one
into whose charge these matters are
placed and Avho is expeete l by the post
master general to look after" the inter
ests of this section. 'We have never
taken any stock in the unjustifiable
abase of Postmaster General Wana
niaker, which characterize so many of
our southern journals. We think
that he has done a gr?at deal of good
in the past and that Le wishes to put
his department upon a business basis,
and we are confident that if our lack
of postal facilities be brought" to his
attention he will improve them.
First: All our business men wish
a postal service put on the night train
of The Charlotte and Augusta line.
Letters after letters have been written
about this matter to the proper postal
authontie3, and twice Superintendent
Terrell, of the Atlanta division, ha3 rec
ommended that this service be piit on.
We have gone to some trouble to as
certain the amount of mail handled on
this road by the night train, and we
haye it from the railroad authorities
themselves that from two thousand to
twenty-five hundred pounds of mail
matter is handled on each trip. Tins
mail is made up, we. are informed, by
thqclerkson the V ashmgton and Char
lotte line for the large offices along Inc
line of the southern road, undisplaced
in the lianas ot the baggage master who
puts it -ft at the proper stations. This
is known amongst the postofHte people
as "expressed" mail, and while it is
little better than no service aft; all. it

a slight benefit from this iervice, the
mailer towns receive none. To show
the absurdity of this service we have
to mention th:t mail for this place
from all points along the lina of the
Augusta road arrives. here in themorfi-
at 1 o'clock in closed pouches for the
Washington and Charlotte line, liie
clerks on this line open and distribute
(when they can) tins mail and send it
back to us by the noon train, a delay
of thirteen hours to our business men
of this mail. If it should happen, as
it undoubtedly does, that the clerks
cannot distribute this mail before they
meet the noon train at Reidsville it
will be delayed twonty-fVur hcur.
The night train on the Augusta Toad
mak.s connection witli the one from
Washington that brings the daily pa
pers from the north; these papers then,,
by reason of the fact that there is r.o4
service over the Augusta road at night,
are delayed twelve hours to their sub
scribers. s Second: Postal service is also needed
on the night train of the Western Nort h.
Carolina railroad. While the section of
this State through which this 1 oad runs
has increased wonderfully in the past
year in wealth and population, the pos
tal arrangements on that road are the
same now 'as then. The same old,
narrow, dingy curs and the same num
ber of men. There are tens of thou
sands of visitors every summer in this
section from all parts of the United
States. Large and growing towns are
springing up all along the lino; the
volume of mail is inerea-ing every year,
-and yet from some cause or other there
is no corresponding increase of the
postal facilities, 'the railroad author
ities state that they have been trying
to get a postal service on the night
train of this line for a number of years
past but so far with success. Twenty
pouches of letters of the like number
of canvasses are "expressed" on this
train in the care of the baggage master
amounting to about two thousand
The same condition of affairs exists
on the line from Goldsboro to Greens
boro. Only one train, the "day Hup,"
carries a postal ckfk. Only tw clerks
run on that line and they are on duty
every day in the week without .any
rest whatever. A thousand pounds of
mail is expressed every night over this
line and as before only a few places re
ceiving the benefit.
Ftnirth: Over the short line from
Hh'h Point to Randleman is aUo ex
pressed a large lot of mail. This hue
runs across an important manufactur
ing Ki'r.rion and it is important that
thev, as wll as the rest of u-, should
have their mail delivered and dispute n-cu
All tins "expressed" mail for the
four roads above mentioned amoant-in-'
to nearly sixty pouches of letters
and ninety canvas.- or papers and
weighing from four to five thousand
pounds is made up and dispatched ')
the clerk on the Washington and
Charlotte line. This line is already
congested with mail, as was. shown by
reports last fall of a large amount of
u n worked mail which was brought by
this line into this office. If clerks
wee put on fhe night train of these
roads, the line from Washington would
be greatly relieved, being then com
pelled to make up one pouch and can
vass where they now make up fifteen.
They would have more time to work
their mail. All this "express" inaii
has to be made up and distributed after
the clerks leave Danville, Va.
1 We have here on the two most im
portant lines in the State only half a
lack of pioper jnail facilities; business
1 'tiers requiring immediate ans.vers
have to wait until the day train before
they can be dispatched. The popula
tion lai increased on these liurs
three-fold and jyet no increase made of
facilities. Towns have sprung up as
if hy niagic ahjng the lin of the West
ern North Carolina railroad, business
is booming, sunimer travel is immense
and yet the mail facilities, which
should keep pa ;e with the industry and
development o the cmntry, lag far
behind. We vou!d like to know who
is responsible f r the d feet. The pos
tal authorities cannot plead ignor.iikce.
The nattrr has been brought to their
attention f. time and again. They
answer they have no money with
which to put it on. Why do thfy not
get the money? Is not sufficient
money.. 'appropriated? The general
superintendent of R. M. S. was granted
for the year ending June 30, 18D2, the
sum of 0400,()00 for the payment of
p.istal clerks, an increasa of half, a
million dollars on estimates for last
year. The ex'ense of having no money
cannot be given any longer for failure
to put on Increased service on the lines
above indicated And we respectfully
suggest t6 Congressmen Henderson,
Alexander,. Crawford and Williams
that they could do no higher service to
their constituents than to have in
creased nijii! facilities given them.
They would th-.is benefit not a few
people in their respective districts, but
eveiy man woman mid child, rich and
poor, white and i black, who writes a
letter. The appropriation for the year
ending Jnhe, in all p obability,
has not yet been apportioned to the
different divisions of The railway mail
."crvico of this country. Now is the
time to strike for if. We need these
increased facilities and must have
L- t's examine this and see how much
the additional cost would be if postal

The traicsare already running, the

JThe programme of the third soiree
of the Neave iMiisic School was pre
faced by these rational remarks:
The musical sky is so much obscure!
by the pompous j arrogance aud dicta
bt: pedantry, and the insincere, rhap
sodic vaporihgs of affectation, that fre
quent gales of common sense are needed
to dispel the dense and suffocating
clouds thus created, which impede the
advancement of true musical education,
darken appreciation, and beget the in
sincerity' of -morl cowardice in many
well-organized, genial people, making
them feel ashamed to confess that they
keenly enjjy melodious music; that,
they prefer musical expression to har
monic form devoid of it!
Life -work is embodied in two main,
self-respecting oblig i! ions; cue is cul
tivated ability to support lite, the
other, to make life worth living; the
latter is largely achieved through at
tractive accomplishments which give
social value to their possessors. But
both obligations should be as one and
inseparable, in the application of at
tainment, making each an aid to the
other. In this respect, a true educa
tion implying, at least, fine perform
ance and fluent, reading of muic at
first sight is the; Alpha and Omega of
all practical ' edubat'ou; for as the
Alpha it is the (jnry exercise in this
life that trains the mental faculties to
absolute concentiativjii, thus insuring
efficiency in idl other skillful work,
earnestly undertaken; and as the
Omega it is chief of social urn lineiits.
Piimariiy, then, the chief end of
musical education is the promotion of
social value, iu the home circle, the
church, the concert room, et al. and
uot us till indiscriminate production of
quasi teachers of music, nor of ponder
ous, automatic executants in eiocity,
as imitation artists. "Mu-ic is the
affectionate ait;" hence, at the outset
and onward, the study and practice of
it must be made attractive to pupils
