will be washed eat but there is no doubt
that the Woodburg will be pat en the

Items from Pender.
From a gentleman who reached the city
yesterday from our sister county of Pender
we gather the following facts and incidents:
On Sunday evening, the 4th inst., the
residence of Mr. W. W. Lark ins, near
Reilley's Creek Church, in Pender, was en-
tered during the temporary absence of Mr.
Larkins and family and a considerable
number of articles of wearing apparel and
bed clothing stolen and carried dff. The
thief or thieves also broke open the jewelry
box of Mr. L.'s wife and succeeded in es-

When printed in roman. letters it is neither
tbe best nor tbe only paper, bat is usually a
very good one, notwithstanding. The iht
gives the population of every town and the
circulation or eyery paper, IT IS NOT A
CO-OPERATIVE LIST. IT 18 NOT A
