A Counterfelr Blind Tiger.
A fake blind tiger, it is said,
did a thriving business here last
Saturday night. The tiger would

thirsty one would whisper, 'Don'
you want to buy some coru?" I
"the man approached expressed a
desire to investhis ciQ n "corn'
and they do say that there were
many corn buyers runniug at large
last Saturday night the purchas
er was told to meet the seller at a
designated place and time the
time being mighty soon after the
deahwaB made. ; The seller showed
up at the appointed place and
time named with a pint or a quatt
of com and got his money for it
at the high price of 50c a pint.
There was not so much fake about
the transaction after 'all, for it
was not corii juice that was sold,
but just plain cornj sound 'and fit
for use. , And they do say further
that there was no cheating as to
quantity, no short weight or meas
ure, full and fair measure being
given. A pint of gcod clean white
corn for a half dollar. The price
was high sure, but those who bar
gained for pure corn have no kick
coming, because they did not get

The South Will do as It Chooses.
"The fcouth. tin section that
haa eiven more or leas trouble in
politics for a good many years, is
again being brougnt to tne iore
ground in the hope of changing
its political complexion and nav
ing it otherwise mend its ways.
The Tradesman has nothing to
do with politics further than urg
ing all those who have vested in
terests to exercise their franchise
rights and thus insure a safe ad
ministration, whether local or
national. At the same time th
haroioff again on the "Solid
South" is not to our liking, nor i
it. we believe to that of the maSU
jority of our citizens. If on
national administration canuot
do any given section of the coun
try full justice without stopping
to inquire whether the section is
'Solid or otherwise," it is time to
look after the . national end and
not the Bectional.
The South, like the North, East
and West, is going to do just ex
actly what it believes is rjght and
neither threats uor promises is
going to change it politically or
any other way. It is a section
that has worked out its own sal

Child Burned to Death. Needed an Ex
pert Lock Picker.
Concord Times, Feb. 4th.
On last Saturday the six-year-
old daughter of H. M. Lefler, of
he Bala mill, was burned to death.
Her mother had just stepped out
of the house, when during her ab
sence the child's clothing caught
fire while she" was standing in front
of the open fin-place warming her
self, the weather being very cold.
he child's clothing was burned
entirely off and her body so badly
burned that she died the next day.
he sufferings of the little one
were terrible, and death was a re-
ief. Everything possible was
done for her, but to no avail. The
bereaved parents have the deepest
sympathy of all who know them
in such a great affliction.
Several days ago something got
wrong with the lock of the safe iu
the Cabarrus having Bank at Mt.
Pleasant, and the cashier, L. J.
oil, took the combination off to
have it fixed. Capt. Jonas Cook,
also connected with the bank, did
not know this, and shut the door.
he lock was thrown by force of
gravity, end the door could not be
opened. An expert had to be se
cured from a distant city, and he
worked at the lock for two days
before 'ha could open the door.
This was done last Monday, to the
great relief of those interested,
aud everything is now all right.
