HAKES THE DIFFERENCE
TELLIKn TUB BEES.
Out of the house where the slumberer
Grandfather came one summer daj.
And under the pleasant orchard trees
He spake thus wise to the murmuring
"Tha fflnvp hlrv-im that kissed her
And the posy bed where she use
- to play.
Have honey store, but none - so
As ere our little one went away.
O bees, sing soft, and bees, sine
For she is gone who loved you so."
A wonder fell on the listening bees,
Under these pleasant orchard trees,
And in their toil that summer day
Even their murmuring seemed to say :
"Child, O child, the grass is cool,
And the posies are waking to hear
Of the bird that swings by the shad
ed pool, "
Waiting for one that , tarrieth
'twas so they called to the little
J one then, .
As if to call her back again.
O gentle bees, I have come to say
That grandfather fell asleep to day,
And we knew by the smile on grand
father's face, -He
has found his dear one's biding
So, bees, sing soft, and, bees, sing
As over the honey fields you
To the trees abloom and the flowers
Sing of grandfather fast asleep;
And ever beneath these orchard
Find cheer and shelter, gentle bees.
ELEVATORS SAVING DAYS' WORK.
Pignrpit of an Old Man Who
- Climbed Weary Stain.
Recently nn old man stood in the cor
ridor of n big office building, with watch
in hand, making figures from time to
time on the back of an envelope. - There
were many who wondered what he was
lie was computing how much time the
modern elevators in our high buildings
save to men in a iny. and to one who
spoke to him he 'told how for years,
-away back in the sixties, he had worked
in the sixth story of a building which
was .then one of the highest in the city
or the country either, for that matter;
how. though youirg and spry then, he
had drraded that climb up six sheer stair
llights; how the men in the place would
draw lots to see who at luncheon time
should make the journey to the street to
buy cakes and pie for the noonday meal,
and how ho had at times gone without
hia lunrtu'on rather than use up so much
strength in clirnbing the stairs. It took
a minute and a half then for a young
man to go up, he said, but the manager
of the factory, who was more than 50
years old and somewhat rheumatic, al
ways spent four minutes in the upward
"I was just figuring on the. time saved
by this modern appliance," the old man
continued, "and I calculate that it is at
leust four minutes for every young man
who goes to the twenty-fifth floor and ten
minutes for your 'elderly gentlemen.'
These express elevators, stopping only
above the thirteenth- floor, average 45
seconds in reaching the top. Of course
we wouldn't have 20 or 30 story struc
tures if the modern elevator manufac
turers had not kept pace with the archi
tects and builders, but I am arguing from
the other side." And he showed an ar
ray of figures (o prove that in a day's
average business, in which 2,500 passen
gers are carried, two whole working
days are gained. His young" friend did
not dispute him.
It is in New York of course, with its
score of buildings iliat are 14 stories
high and overvtat the elevator has
reached its greatest development. In the
master of speed the makers have vied
.with one another until 800 feet a minute
is the rate at which the cars can be pro
pelled. This means to the twentieth
floor of a building in 30 seconds, a veloci
ty that is gained by a multiplication of
gear wheels over which the car cables
run. New York Post.
Why He Was Successful.
The fact that success Is mainly due to
hard work has beep expressed in many
different ways, but one of the best was
that recently employed by a very success
ful commercial traveler. He was talking
with a companion, n rather lazy fellow,
when the latter exclaimed:
"I declare. Jack. I can't understand
why you always succeed In selling so
many more goods than I do!"
"I'll tell you why it is," replied Jack.
"But." he added, "it's a trade secret, and
you mustn't tell it to everybody."
"Of course I wouldn't do such a thing,"
was the answer.
"Well, then," said Jack impressively,
"I succeed because when I'm doing busi

Bewstu The Kind You Have Always Bought
Rumor md. Pathoa of the Sarins
Bank la Great Citiea.
Writing of the sayings banks and their
depositors in The Century, Richard
Boughton tells of the embarrassment
sometimes caused to bank officials by dis
honest patrons. .
. The great bulk of depositors, perhaps
65 per cent, are of the laboring classes,
the weekly wnpe earners; then come the
middle and well to do class, say 30 per
cent, and lastly the very rich man and
the criminal in about equal proportions.
By criminal I do not mean to confine this
class to bank burglars, check forgers and
bank note counterfeiters you will see
all of these if you watch the line long
enough bat I include all those men and
women who avoid police notice when
they can and are occasionally "wanted"
at police headquarters, the rich keeper
of the fashionable gambling house, the
woman who is suspected of knowing the
whereabouts of a vanished thief or
forger, the man who never breaks into a
bank himself, but takes a friendly and
patronly interest in those who do, and
so on up and down the scale of cos
mopolitan vice. At one time or another
they all have savings bank accounts. It
seems incomprehensible, but people of all
these classes are frequent, even perma
nent depositors. I do not say this from
hearsay, but fiave seen examples of each
of them lodging their money even in
their own names.
What can you do with these people
when they come to deposit? It is not
criminal -to save money, and you cannot
arrest them. In some cases their ac
counts are closed by the banks, and they
are told to take themselves off, a hint
upon which they ' promptly and quietly
act, possibly from fear of the police, ac
customed as they are to obey when told
to "move on."
Some of them, however, are not easily
got rid of. A famous confidence woman
had her account In a New York bank,
and her quiet demeanor, amiable smile,
innocent, almost girlish timidity, quite
won the chief official in charge. He was
accustomed to call her aside politely from
the somewhat rough crowded line, give
her a chair in the anteroom and send her
passbook and money by one of the clerks
to the receiving teller. Her identity
was finally discovered through a police
inquiry at the bank, and the next time
she cajled the old gentleman offered her
not a chair, but her passbook with her
deposits in full. The "poor young thing"
swore at him like a trooper. It was quite
necessary to call in the moral influence
of the porter, displaying his "special
deputy"" badge, before Miss Innocent
made less noise and took herself and her
deposits out of the bank, giving the old
gentleman a parting shot at the doorway.
The president and managing officials
of a leading bank once debated long and
seriously whether they should inform
the authorities that just after a famous
t burglary three men and two women had
deposited $8,000 each in new bank Dins
that Dossibly were a portion of those that
hnd recently been stolen in transit be
tween the two banks. It was a question
whether the suspicion would justify this
action, -which of course would become
Dublic. nerhans get into the newspapers
and some illiterate depositors might hear
the story with a new twist given to it;
not that bnrelars had put money into
the bank, but had been in and had taken
some out. The result would be a run.
It was" finally decided to do nothing, at
least for the time. Soon afterward the
thieves for such they were relieved the
bank's perplexity. Two of the men and
the two women came in singly, but in a
hurry, drew thefull amount that was in
their names and made off. The fifth of
the party did not return until years aft
erward, when a man with cropped nair,
an unconscious lockstep halt in his walk
and other evidences of haying been tem
porarily retired from society called and
drew the deposit that had slumbered
while he was "doing time up the river."
HIS VIVID DREAM.
Part That It Played In Savins
Hia Brother's Life.
"I never had but one experience in my
life that verged on the abnormal," said
the colonel after the whist game at the
club the other night when the conversa
tion had somehow gravitated to queer
coincidences, strange premonitions and
similar unaccountable happenings. "It
took place several years, ago," he contin
ued, In response to a little pressing for
the story, "when I was living in apart
ments in upper Canal street and had a
buslnms office on the second, floor of a
building in St. Charles. At that time I
was very methodical. At 6 o'clock sharp
I would shut up the office for the night,
dine, spend awhile at the club and gen
erally reached home at abont 10:30. Then
I would get into a dressing gown, turn
up the lamp and proceed to read myself
"On the night I have in mind I follow
ed that programme to the letter; but,
contrary to all my habits, I fell asleep in
my chair and had a vivid dream or,
rather, a sort of swift, flashing vision. I
thought I was standing at the head ot
the flight ot stairs leading np to my of
fice in St. Charles street and that my
door was ajar about a foot, showing a
pitch dark interior. I seemed to have
jnst arrived for some purpose or other,
and I was conscious of a strong feeling
of surprise that the door should be open,
but before I could form any conjecture in
regard to the matter I awoke.
"The picture was absolutely common
place, but it was so extraordinarily dis
tinct that for a moment or two I could
hardly realize where I was. It seemed
certain that I had just been standing in
the office hallway, and the impression
was so firm and clear I thought at first
1 mast have been walking in my sleep
My watch showed that I had been dozing
less than five minutes, however, and
somnambulism was plainly out of the
"As yon may well believe, the inci
dent left me wide awake, and I tried in
vain to reeompose my nerves over a
book, but in spite of all my efforts I
found it impossible to get that gaping
office door out of my mind. I had a
feeling, which became stronger and stron
ger every moment, that I must have
accidentally left it open when I went
away the preceding evening, and, seeing
that sleep was not to be thought of until
1 settled the matter one way or the oth
er, I finally got up, dressed and started
down town. By the time I reached the
stairs I was so firmly convinced that the
door would be open that I called a po
liceman to go up with me and was not in
the least surprised to find things exactly
as l had seen them in my dream.
"But the strangest part of the story is
to come. Inside the office was my broth
er. It seemed that he had been passing
the stairs an hour of so before, when he
was suddenly 'seized with an attack of
vertigo and went up to lie down. He is
a very large, heavy man, and the seizure
assumed a sort of apoplectic form which
had already rendered him partly uncon
scious at the time I arrived. I sent' for
a carriage and had him taken to his
house,-where he was ill for four or five
weeks. What would have been the con
sequence.'but for my opportune appear
ance I don't pretend to say, and I have
absolutely no theory to advance in regard
to the circumtances that led me down
that night. The- episode occurred ex
actly as I have related it, and I have
never allowed-myself to waste any time
in speculating over the matter. I have
simply relegated it to the category of
things that can't" be explained." New

ing Infatuation for Yonng Lady is '
Declared Insane. v
Because be has a rather peculiar
and mad infatuation Jor - several
young ladies whom he has lately
met and insists upon imposing his
company upon them whether desired
or not, T. H. Bobbins, aged 85 years
and a sashmaker at the Fore & Foster
factory, was the principal in a rather
sensational investigation by a com
mission of lunacy in the office of Col.
Jno. D. Taylor yesterday afternoon.
The physicians in attendance were
Drs. D. W. Bulluck, Jos. C. Shepard
andC. D. Bell.
The proceedings grew outpf a dis
turbance which resulted from young
Bobbins approaching a young lady on
her return home from Grace Church
Sunday afternoon and insisting upon
accompanying her home, notwith
standing that she had company in the
person of her first cousin, Mr. James
Davis, and that the young lady was
not desirous of receiving attentions
from him. Bobbins insisted upon ac
companying the young lady and was
dealt a severe blow by Mr. Davis, who
had knowledge of Bobbins' persistency
in paying attention to the young lady
The case originally came up . in the
police court yesterday morning I and
Mayor Waddell sent the young man
over for tne lunacy commission. He was
represented at the hearing by Marsden
Bellamy, Jr., Esq., and L. Y. Grady,
Esq.,. appeared for the prosecution.
He was adjudged insane after hearing
a number of witnesses and the opinion
of the medical experts, who said that
he was perfectly conscious of wrong
doing but was powerless to prevent it.
Mr. Bellamy intimated that if there
was any further legal step to take to
save his client from the asylum, he
would do so as he is perfectly confi
dent that the young man is sane. He
has a brother and two sisters living in
the city and is regarded as one of the
most skillful and well paid employes
at the sash factory.
Several years ago he is said to have
become so infatuated with a young
lady who scorned his attentions that

he had since dropped from public

recommendation which may result in
very serious consequences for an
officer of high rank. Major C. H,
Lauchheimer and Colonel F. L. Denny
charged Colonel Bobert L Meade with
drunkennes on duty, while an inspec

Denny with reporting against him

The court of inquiry acquitted
Major Lauchheimer and Colonel Den

sustained the charge against Colonel

an extraordinary event in the fact that
on the 15th day of the trial Command
er West, a member of the court, was
challenged by Major Lauchheimer and
required to withdraw from member
ship by his colleagues. The reasons
for the challenge sent out by Major
Lauchheimer was that Commander
West was, by friendship for Colonel
Meade, unable to act impartially.

A Reunion at Mount Olive.
Raleigh News and Observer: Capt.
0. B. Denson has accepted an invita
tion to deliver an address at a reunion
of Confederate veterans to be held at
Mount Olive. The reunion is one of
the survivors of Company E, 20th
North Carolina, the company com
manded by Capt. Denson in the early
part of the war. Though it was a very
large company originally, there are
only thirty members of it now living.
It was at first composed almost en
tirely of cadets from a military school
taught by Capt Denson, near Mount
Olive. These cadets, however, were
soon detailed for duty elsewhere as
drill masters and the company was re
cruited with men from Duplin and
Wayne counties. It went into the
service fully equipped at its own ex
pense. VESSELS IN COLLISION
Schooner Helen Q. Mosely Run Down and
. Badly Damaged by a Steamer.
Bv Telegraph to tne Morning star.
New York, Sept. ll.-The coast
wise schooner Helen G. Mosely arriv
ed to-day from Fernandina with a full
cargo of lumber. She presented a dam
aged appearance coming into port,
having been in collision with the Ger
man steamer Albano, bound from
this port for Newport News. Captain
Burch, of the Mosely, said that the ac
cident occurred at 1 :30 on the morning
of September 10th. , The weather was
clear and the schooner's lights were
burning brightly when the steamer
came down on her, stove in her bow
and ripped her open down below the
water line. The bowsprit was cut out
of her, bringing down all the head
gear, and the foretopmast was broken
off above the foremast head and the
windlass was also broken. The steam
er stood by until daylight. Captain
Burch asked the steamer for assistance
but the Albano steamed away to the
southward paying no further heed to
Bnllfig-hters Afraid of Cows.
It will probably not surprise our
readers to hear that most Spanish bull
fighters object to fighting cows. The
real reason may, however, astonish
them. A sportsmanlike objection to
persecuting a female animal has noth
ing, whatever to do with it. The factis
that. the average toreador is sincerely
afraid of a cow.
And he has good reason. The cows of
the half wild breed used for the arena
are much quicker in their movements
than are the bulls. Their horns are
more pointed and more formidable.
They do not lower their heads to the
ground, shut their eyes and charge like
a locomotive upon the rails, but are
alert and ready to follow every move
ment of their persecutors. Their war
like tactics have been adapted not to
blind, bovine frontal attacks, but to the
strategy of active and cunning beasts
of prey, of which the human bullfighter
is only a feeble mimic. If these cheap
Idols of the Spanish populace would
face young and active wild cows which
had just been robbed of their calves,
they might perhaps forestall the butch
er, but they would, at any rate, do
something to earn their laurels. Pear

New York, Sept 11. Fire late to
night in the Red Hood storage build

done damage to the extent of 1100,000
and property worth $150,000 more is
in danger of being destroyed before
the firemen master the flames. The
building is filled with cotton and this
may burn for hours. The structure is
divided by fire walls into three

one of these had been consumed or
ruined and it was feared the great
heat would overcome the strength of
the remaining walls. .The ownership
of the cotton has not been ascertained

Austin, the ex-pre acher and labor agi
tator,, was last week convicted of lar
ceny in Rowan Superior Court and
sentenced to eighteen months in the
penitentiary. An appeal was taken
and Austin, in default-of-fSOO bond,
was committed to jail pending the ap
peal. When Austin was sentenced he
indulged in a harangue in which he
denounced almost everything and
everybody. He criticised Solicitor
Rush and Mr. B. F. Long, who as
sisted in the prosecution, and also
criticised his own counsel's conduct of
the case. A gentleman whose
yaracity is unquestioned was telling
last week of a man in Alexander
county who t ate a thirty-two pound
water melon a few days ago. The
circumstances which brought the
man's eating capacity to the test were
these: He was financially broke and
the owner of a load of melons wager
ed him a thirty-two rounder against
two days' work that he could not eat
the melon there and then. The hun
gry man ate the melon, and who will
argue that he didn't weigh more after
eating than he did before?
