The Indians scalped American troops but we never knew of American officers resorting to a similar mode of retal iation. o- Timorous persons are urged not to put their dependence in lightning rods so much as in the thought that the chance of being struck ia ex tremely small, about one to each 200,000 inhabitants in a year which is a much' lower rate than in almost any other of the natural ac cidents. o -The impression prevails that Gen.

There must be when the losers claim that from five to ten millions of dollars are involved. And yet these fellows will go in and be fleeced some more taking others with them. o "Whom the gods would destroy they first make mad." This old saying would seem applicable to Senator Pritchard, who, seeing the handwriting on the wall, and sniff ing hia approaching defeat in the air, is making a very large spectacle of himself, and seeking notoriety, by making it appear that cruelties are practiced in North Carolina, while he is discussing the Philippine question, lie cannot throw sand in the eyesQof the people, with the 'sand cure" be has discovered, which is based upon the unsupported testimony of one negro witness.

Charlotte Observer: It is of con sequence that the President of the United states should have a good opinion of North Carolina and he has certainy been deeply impressed with representatives of the State as he has seen and heard them abroad within the past month. He was quite captivated at Charleston by Governor Aycock and . appears to have been equally impressed at Annapolis t rid ay by Dr. Winston and after his address at the gradua ting exercises of the Naval Acad emy, to which Dr. Winston is a visitors, congratulated him and showed him marked attention.

Frank Lindsay, of the King's Mountain Military Academy, were drowned this afternoon about three clock. The shocking tragedy oc curred while the boys were bathing a Black a pond, two miles west of Yorkville. Immediately upon hearing the news me uoserver correspondent urried to the scene and found Drg. Walker, White, McDowell and Bar- ron, assisted oy dozens oi anxious citizens, trying to resuscitate the unfortunate young men. From eye witnesses the details of the tragedy were gathered as follows: There were sixteen cadets in the bathing party and only a few of them weie able to swim. The pond is a shal- ow sheet with a deep channel in the centre. Stevens, who was a strong, vigorous young fellow, ventured to wade across, heedless of warnings. He stepped beyond his depth and began to flounder. Nichols and Lindsay, neither of whom could swim, plunged to his rescue and all went down together. Mr. Fred Black, the miller, and Cadet Marsh Morrow, of Gastonia, both good swimmers, went to the aid of the three drowning boys and became en tangled in the death trap to such an extent that they barely escaped with their lives. Although much ex hausted, they continued their efforts until they recovered the bodies of Stevens and Nichols by diving. This as after the bodies had been down about 20 minutes. The body of Lindsay could not be found until the pond had been partially drained. t was at least an hour after the boys had gone to the bottom before the doctors arrived and all four reaohed the spot within a few minutes of each other. In the meantime, how ever, acting by direction of his mother, who had had a previous ex perience, Mr. Fred Black had al ready succeeded in getting the drowned men pretty well relieved of water, lhe doctors devoted their efforts to restoring respiration and worked two hours without success. One of the doctors thought he de tected a slight heart action, but was not certain. Dr." Walker opened a vein in Stevens' arm and got a flow of blood, but it was black and show ed no sign of oxygen. After the first excitement Cadet Morrow succumbed from shock. "Tt seems that before the final tragedy, he had taken Nichols out of the very same danger and was lying down resting at the time Nichols and Lind say plunged in after . Stevens. He was in the water for the next half hour under heart breaking circum stances. Then he took a chill and at this time is in a serious oondition. The physicians are with him. Cadet Lindsay was the eldest son of Capt. J. K. Lindsay, of York ville. Cadet Nichols was the only son of Mr. T. J. Nichols, a promt nent farmer who lives near this place, and Cadet Stevens was brother of Mr. John T. Stevens, a leading merchant of Kershaw S. C. While hurrying to the scene of the tragedy on horseback t rank C. Kiddle, aged about 12, fell and was seriously hurt. At first it was thought he would die, but the doo' tors now say he will recover.
