Services were held at the home by Rev. J. N. Higgins. Mr. Harvey was about 61 years old. He is survived by Mrs. Harvey and ten children, all of whom wer& present when he died. He was familiarly known "Bob Harvey" and was liked by every one. J. F. Nance, of this place, cap tured a very curious spider recent ly under unusual circumstances, and he brought the beast into the i- office TFriday, where it was in- 7"ipected with fear and tremblings! ;vHegotit out of a pear over in Randolph county. It had bored into the fruit and had eaten pretty much all there was inside. The thing had a shell on its back after the style of turtles, and traced on the shell is a beautiful design of a butterfly. It isstrong and vicious ' and no doubt poisonous.' Saturday morning a white in fant was found in a well in the mill settlement across the South ern railway from the Nokomis r cotlon mill, oh the property of Daniel Smith, who owns half a : jlozen houses" there. The child n.ad been thrown in the well at birth. It was well-developed and would have weighed probably twelve pounds. The general opin ion was that it had been in the well something like two weeks. Decomposition had partly set in, and, when taken from the water, the body began, to decompose rap idly. The first intimation that any one had that there was some thing in the water, was on Thurs day, when 0. H. Hindale, whose house is nearest the well, drew up . a small piece of skin. Six fami lies had been using the water op to then, Saturday morning the Italians who work on the railroad had gotten some water there, as was their custom. When well cleaners came to clean the well . out, the child was discovered by - means of a glass. Saturday after noon the coroner, Dr. Julian, held : his inquest and the verdict was : left open, 'there being no evidence brought out that pointed to the guilty person or persons.

While out fox hunting Satur day morning, Capt. P. C. Carlton found a dry land terrapin with the date of 1806carved on its back. The inscription may have been placed on the terrapin in recent years as a joke, but Capt Carlton says it had the appear ance of being very old and as terrapins have been I nown t? live many years there are reasons to believe that this one has reach ed its 100th year.

How to Gore a Cold. mm m -m . Mm The question ot how to cure a cold without unneceesary loss of time is one in which we are all more or less interested, for the quicker a cold is gotten rid of the less the danger of pneumonia and other serious diseases. Mr. B. W. L. Hall, of Waverly, Va., has used Chamberlain's Cough Remedv for yean, and says: 4 firmly believe Chamberlain's Cough Remedy to be absolutely the best preparation on the mar ket for colds. I have recommend ed it to my friends and they al agree with me." For sale by James Plummer, SuHsbury, and 1 Spencer Pharmacy, Spencer, N. C A SEVERE STORU. Severarof the Coast Cities are Daraag . ed to tbe Extent of Millions. The dispatches of last Friday gave an account of severe storms which raged along the southern coast Friday night. Pensacola, Florida, and Mobile, Ala., suffer ed great damage. The dispatch from Pensacola is as following : The worst hurricane to visit this city in its history and almost equaling the Galveston disaster, raged here furiously all last night and this morning, and today. with a gale still blowing, the city presents a ' wrecked appearence and the damage is estimated at $5,000,000. The loss of life will be heavy among the mariners, but so far only ope body has ben recovered, a man named George Morgan, a fisherman. Other bodies are reported along the shore, but have not been recover ed. Commencing at 7 o'clock last night the wiud blew at 50 miles or three hours, then increased to 75. From that time until 5 o'clock it remained about 80 and 90 miles an hour. The tides, rom the bay packed into the citf; for blocks, destroying homes and making rivers out of streets. When the gale was at its highest this morn iLg women and children were running frantically about the streets in darkness. Every house along the water ront for a distance of ten miles has been destroyed and the won der is that the loss of life is not greater. The tracks of the termi nal railway to the navy yard and barracks have all been destroyed, as also the trestles and bridges. The Mobile dispatch, same date is t a similar effect. Loss of lite, variously estimated at from five to 50 persons, many people injured, 5,000 houses damaged, the business quarter devastated, and a property loss of fully $3,000,000, is the effect of a tropical hurricane of the last 48 hours. on the city of Mobile. The storm struck Mobile at midnight and raged for many hourB, the wind reaching a veloci ty of 90 miles an hour. Water from Mobile Bay was blown into the- city by the gale and for a time stood seven feet deep in the wholesale quarter from Royal street to the Alabama rivr The loss of life is believed to be mainly among the negroes, al though conditions are so chaotic that information's indefinite. Mobile has been placed under control of the militia. Nobody is porrflitted in the streets except newspaper men and persons wear ing badges. . j Rochester Pape s Bolt.

The resolution was introduced by Rev. Geo. H, 3(?rnelisont of Con cord. He spoke in its. favor, and Rev. J. A. Scott led the debate on the other side. The. resolu tion was adopted by a large ma jority. On Thursday night Rev. Rob ert Coit preached his trial ser mon. His text was "Create in me a clean herat, O God ; and re uew a right spirit within me," Psalms 51-10. The matter of Mr, Coit's sermon proved him a close student and a deep thinker. The statement of his propositions, his arguments and his peroration were all systematically arranged and delivered in an earnest, elo quent manner. The Presbytery voted unani m6usly to accept Mr. Coit's trial sermon, It should be borne in mind that while the sermon was. all which could be expected, any sermon preached under, similar circum stances, by a beginner in the min istry, ought not to be taken as a test of the ability of the .preach er. Mr. Coit's position on this occasion was a somewhat embar rassing one, he had many disad vantages to contend with, which it is hardly needful to point out, and it is geatly to his praise that he more than met the expecta tions of his friends. A brief service iu memory of the late Dr. J. Rumple was held. Rev. J. M. Wharev read a short biographical sketch of the de ceased pastor, who was so loved by his congregation. Rev. J. C. Kennerly and Rev. W. W. Pharr both spoke briefly, tenderly and feelingly of their personal rela tions with Dr. Rumple. Rev. F. M, Beatty, of Moores ville, was ordained, and he will leave shortly for Cardenas, Cuba, where he will engage in mission ary work, J. E. Robinson, of Yancey county, read his popular lecturer, this being part of the require ments for candidates for the min istry, After some routine business, Presbytery ad j urned to meej in Hickorv in April next." Rev. W. F Holliugsworh remained over Sunday and preached at the Pres byterian churoh. ALBEUARLE AND STANLY COUNTY.' Coiernor at. Ricbfield. Uore Ataut v ' That Road 4latter;s .

Jilter Meets His Match. Some women are broad enough to be president of these United States. One of these is Miss Ma ry McDonald, of Brooklyn, N. Y. She was engaged to be married to a young man named Thober. A day or two before the date of the wedding she discovered Thober was a scamp but she kept her counsel. On the wedding day she appeared, in her bridal outfit and at the proper moment, in presence of all the guests, the she drew back the folding curtains ff the room and in walked a young woman with her mother; the young woman had been ruined and deserted by Thober. The minister was on hand. "Marry her, she does not want you, but she wants your name," said Miss McDonald, and Thober had to walk ud to the rack. When the ceremony was over Miss McDon aid took Thober by the arm, es corted him to the door and told him to go and go quickly. Then the guests had a big wedding re past; but Thober got none of it. This is the neatest and . most sen sible j )b we ever heard of. In stead ot marrying the mau to re form him, this young lady had sense; she was not even content with decliuing to wed him, but she made him atone, in so far as she could, for the wrong inflicted on another.
