Something Novel The Hennett
Place Itcauiifully Engraved.
Ilist'io places dot the south, iu
every flection, as a result of the
conni t iome thirty eight years aito,
when tue red fligs of war were fly
ing, and they are now of peculiar
interest to those who participated In
the events of that time. Many cit
ies and towns boast of their historic
places, and Durham is not without
one. It is the "Bennett Place,"
where General Johnson surrendered
to Sherman. This place is now
made more interesting by a beauti
ful souvenir, which has been gotten
up by Durham gentlemen, and it
will recall the memories of that
place to all who are left that were
there in '65, and to the descendants
of the two armies. It is a Bouvenir
spoon of silver with gold bowl, be Hir
ing the North Carolinaooat of arms,
vignette of the American eagle, and
the name of the State in raised let
ters on the handle. In the bowl is
an engraving of the Bennett House,
with the old tree at the corner, a
perfect representation of the place,
K natural as life. Another style of
t lis spoon gives you a scene with
two bouses, the Bennett House be
ing one. These spoons are made in
the beet style of the jewelers' art
and engraved equally as well. They
are made by S. M. Snider, the Dur
ham jeweler, and are for sale at his
store in this city. The prices are
$l,$2and $2 50 and their quality
is guaranteed. Persons wiahiug to
preserve a picture of the historic
"Bennett Place," made famous by
tie war of the states, should get
one, and they are nice presents for
I he picture of the place was taken
wUh a kodak by Mr. W. G. Bram-
ham, of this city, and he and Mr.
Snider conceived the idea of repro
ducing the same on these handsome
spoons, which was a happy idea.

PUBLIC SCHOOL MATTERS.
Schools in the County Get Thirty
According to the report of Supt.
C. VV. Massey, of the public schools
in Durham county, there are 9,139
children of Bohool age in this county,
and of this number 6,367 attended
school last year. The average length.
of white schools is 31 weeks., an in
crease of about one week over the
previous year. The superintendent's
report states that it is thought now
that there will be sufficient money
to run the schools the same length
of time next year. Every white
school in the county now has a li

The Board of education has in
augurated another move that will
doubtless become very popular.
They have decided to establish a
central graded or high school in each
township. . One of these has already
been located in Mangum township.
During the coming year it is the pur
pose of the board to locate others.
By the location of such schools,
children can get a higher education
than offered by ordinary publia
schools, and at the same time the
money intended for the education of
the children is not curtailed.
Educational matters in the county
were never in better condition than
Friday and Saturday Nights.
An old time festival will be given

There will be all the delicacies of
the season, served in the most
tempting manner. The attractions
and amusements will be varied and
interesting. Go out and help the
firemen, and at the same time you
cannot help but enjoy yourself.
