Iiord Randolph Churchill, being asked
what he thought of Irving, said: "I

and always Hamlet in private life."
The increased severity of the admin

Success of a Pender Boy-
A competitive examination was held
last Saturday in this city for a clerkship
in the Auditor's department of the
Wilmington & Weldon R&ilroad Com
pany. A number of candidates pre
sented themselves in accordance with
an advertisement calling tor a young
man for a clerkship in said department.
The examination, fair and impartial,
was rigid and protracted. The choice
fell upon S. S. Satchwell, Jr., as haying
passed the' best examination. He is a
lad of only sixteen years of age, and is
the son of Dr. S. S. Satchwell, of Pen
der. The creditable success of this
lad, over so many older applicants for
the desirable position thus won, is
complimentary to Pender and to the
Warsaw High School, ot "which he has
been a pupil for the last twelve months.
This notable individual is wanted.
-He is lost to sight,' although 'to
memory dear,' and there seems to be a
determination to hunt him up. to as
certain his whereabouts and bring him,
will-nilly, within the hands and power
of the law. Officer Strode this morn,
ing was busy in serving summons upon
50 good and true white men as a posse
comitatus to go and assist in searching
for the aforesaid Pompcy and each
person was warned to appear with
'sword and pistol by his" side' or ia
other warlike ai ray. None wanted to
go; they had no relish for the job I and
they had so mdeh business to attend to
that to leave would send
everything' to . the "demnition
bowwow." The officer was in
nearly every instance inexorable and
they were compelled to put themselves
in 'martial array" and "root hog or
die," which means that they had to go
or run the risk of being defendants in
contempt at the next term of court
They went and whether they "saw and
conquered" remains to be ascertained.
Among those summoned was a well
known gentleman who is in such feeble
health that be has made all his arrange
ments to leave for New York on Sat
urday next, where he wjll be treated
by an eminent physician. His excuse
of li'-hcalth didn't count worth a cent,

from the noise last night and they

is a lively creature and the kazoo is
his latest inspiration.
In the New York Naval Stores and
Tobacco Reporter we find a list of the
officers of the Naval Stores and To

names of Messrs. G. W. Baily and
Harry P. Russell, both well known,
names in this city. Both occupy im
portant and trust-worthy positions on
the different committees of the Ex
change, places for which they are emi
nently well qualified. Mr. Baily ap
pears as a member of , the Arbitration

Chairman of the Committee on Fi

Registration of Druggists.
It is a fact not generally known that at
the last session of the legislature thephar
macy act was amended so as to apply
generally throughout the State. Here
tofore there was a clause exempting
towns of less than five hundred inhabi
tants from the operation of the law. It
is now necessary under this law for all
druggists to be registered. All having
three yesrs experience and those now
in business on their own account are
entitled to such registration. Applica
tions can be made to the secretary of
the board of pharmacy, Mr. Simpson,
of Raleigh, who will furnish the
necessary blanksfor registration. Such
registration can oe made within ninety
days by simply applying and remitting
the fee, which is nominal. After the
ninety days have expired registration
can only be effected by applying for
examination as to qualifications.

was in the city to-day.
Mr. George Harriss,' Jr., has been

city, but now the Manager ot the
Bortsmoutb, Va., Telephone Exchange,
has' been elected a member of the
American Institute of Electrical Engin
eers, and is now in attendance at the
Electoral Convention of Electricians,
which is in progress at Philadelphia,
having obtained a leave of absence for
that purpose. Congress has made a
liberal appropriation for the convention
and good results are expected from the
deliberations of the body. Mr. Prigge
has prepared a pamphlet, upon the sub
ject of the use and nature of telephones.
He has had considerable practical ex
perience in the management and work

that his pamphlet will be an interesting
