lat meeting of the Trustees of
the Agricultural College shews
that a majority of the members
of that board are suiFering from
the sum disease. The names
of two worthy North Carolini
ans were offered for the position
of President, one of whom is
the peer of any and certainly
superior to the majority of those
whose names whih offered. But
alas, lie was gumy or. being a
North Carolinian, which was
fatal to his chances. Out of the
whole faculty of the great ex
perimental Institution there are
now only two North Carol inians,
and they need must have left
the State for a while to be fit to
be called back.
A Tew days before, the Trus
tnes or the N. C. University
elected a man to fill the chair
made vacant by the lamented
demise of Prof. Craves. The
man, though a native Carolinian,
had shown wisdom enough to
leave the State a number of
years ago. If fie had in the
meantime remained in North
Carolina and put forth his ef
forts to build up his own State
ho would not have stood a ghost
of a chance. If Duplin's worthy
son, who was an applicant for
the place had remained in Tex
as a little longor, he might have
been the lucky man.
Would it not be a good idea
to import 170 men to fill our
next Legisture? For certainly
we are by ourselves unfit to make
our laws, if we are unfit and in

carry into effect our enterprises.

To Meet Again Next Saturday.
At a meeting of the Life
Members of the Sampson Coun

in Clinton on July 26th the fol
lowing resolution was passed:
"Resolved by the Sampson Coun
ty Agricultural Association that
there shall bo a Fair held in the Fall
of 1889, provided the citizens of the
town ot Clinton shall contribute the
sum oi two nunurea dollars to be
expended and used in improving the
Fair Ground property."
Acting upon the above, the
citizens of Clinton sent in a list
containing subscriptions to the
amount of $212.50 to the meet
ing of the Society .which was
held in Atkins' Hall on last
Monday, September 2nd, where
upon the Society unanimously
accepted the subscriptions ten
dered and resolved to take ira
mediate step toward holding the
proposed Fair. Upon motion
the body adjourned to meet next
Saturday, September 7th, at 10
o clock A. M., to organize as a
corporate body under the char
ter which has been granted for
the purpose aforesaid. Every
life member of the original as

to be present so as to facilitate

Mmnnii G. Ross, latelv Gov

dependence of character that
enabled him to resist immense
pressure and stand by his con
victions in casting the deciding
vote for President Johnson's
acquittal is evinced in his quiet
return to labor at his trade.
His administration as Governor
of New Mexico wai as able as it
was incorruptible, and during
his public service he has ac
cumulated no fortune. But he
does not consider himself a
poor man, so long as he is pos-
spssed of the always available
capital of knowledge of his
craft. This Cincinnatus of the

in every way.
We recently saw an extract
from a State paper, which said
that thousands of young white
men, of talent and brains left
the State every year. We rise
to ask is it any wonder that the
young men leave a State which
refuses to encourage them, by
giving all places of trust and
profit to outsiders, when there
are hundreds of competent na
tives, who could worthily and
creditably fill the positions.
They however "get left." They
make the mistake m early life
by concluding to remain in their
own State. We are led to these
reflections because of the action
of the Board of Trustees of the
Agricultural and Mechanical
College, in ignoring well qualifl
ed North Carolina gentlemen in
their aspirations for the Presi
dency of the College, and going
out of the State to get a man.
We confidently expected the
election of that practical scholar
and gentleman, Rev. J. L
btewart, as ne is a man
of versatile talents and would
have made a good one. Then
there was Prof. John E. Kelly,
of Moore, who could have filled
the place. We do not say any
thing against the gentlemen
chosen but we do pay that he is
no superior to dozens of Caro
linians. These things happen
every day, exemplyfying the
truth of "a prophet is not with
out honor, save in his ownxonn-
try," and yet people wonder why
our young mea go West or to
some other part of the country
where there is no absolute dis
crimination against them. We

The following article has been
handed us and we give it for
the benefit of our readeis, as
there is considerable fever
throughout the country :
"Typhoid fever is probably
the most preventable of all dis
eases, not excepting small-pox.
It i3 now known that, like chol
era and dysentery, the germ or
specific cause of this disease is
contained in the discharges from
the bowels of those sick of it,
and that while other methods
of introducing the poison into
the system are possible, it most
generally gains entrance
through the medium of an in
fected water supply -usually
the use of well water polluted
by fecal matter. This may be
direct, from drinking such wa
ter, or indirect, as by using milk
or otter articles of food or drink
from cans or vessels washed in
it. Ice, from an infected source,
Is also dangerous, since it has
been proven that freezing does
not destroy the infective prin
ciple. While water from all sources
of supply is liable to contami
nation, well water is especially
so, whether located in city,
town, summer watering place or
country. Thus, out of three
hundred and fourteen cases oc
curring iu Louisville, Ky., in
1884, two hundred and ninety
eight of the persons used well
water habitually, and some of
the other sixteen did so occa
sionally. In the now famous
epidemic at Plymouth, Penn.,
involving the sickness of 1,104
persons, the dath of 114, and
an actual outlay in money of
$67,100.16, the outbreak was
traced to the use of water pol-
uted by the fecal discharges of
one imported case of the dis
ease. Facts no less convincing
might bo multiplied indefinite-
y if space permitted. In a small
er way they are common in the
experience of most physicians
in active practice,
Usually the wells are sunk
near the kitchen, and in danger
ous proximity to the privy and
other sources of contamination.
The well draws its supply from
an inverted cone, having its apex
at the bottom of the well and
ts base at the surface of the
ground. In dry seasons this
base is often extended until the
well becomes the receptical for
the more or less pefectly filter
ed filth from all the sources
found in the average back yard,
and the water, often sparkling
in its apparent purity, becomes
a culture fluid for anv disease
germs finding their way into it.
Two methods of prevention,
having the same general object
view, are to be recommend
ed. The first involved the tho
rough disinfection from all dis-
chaiges from the bowels of ty
phoid fever patients. This is
best done by the use of a solu
tion of chloride of lime, eight
ounces to the gallon of water.
using & quart of this solution
for each discharge, and allow
ing it to stand in the vessel at
least one hour before emptying.
A solution of corrosive subli
mate, two drams to the gallon
of water, will answer the same
purpose, but requires to remain
longer in contact with the ma
terial to be disinf acted. Bed
and body linen soiled by such
patients, should be disinfected
by the use of the same solution
or by boiling.
The second method relates to
avoiding the ue of suspicious
water, and especially well wa
ter, and where this cannot be
done, to boil such water before
it is used for drinking purposes.
In the absence of a pure and
guarded public water supply,
properly stored cistern water is
probly open to least objection.
The effectual practice of these
methods will require intelligent
care and some expense, but it is
confidently believed that their
general adoption would result
in the practical disappearance
of a disease that is not only
a disgrace to our civilization, but
an annual scourge and tax upon
the people of Kentucky, in com
parison with which yellow
fever and cholera sink into in
significance. Muhlenberg (Ky.)

Teherefore when a hog once has
contracted a genuine case of
cholera it is generally cheaper
to kill it and bury deep under
the crround. If this is not done,
the hogs that show signs of
cholera should by all means be
separated from the other hogs
and kept m a pen or enclosure

it, for other hogs drinking from

treatment to prevent them from

be looked after. The food given
the hOgs should be cooked, the
water should have lime sprink
led in it, and tar freely used.
If one of these should show
