The Opinion of The Editor and the Opinion of Others which we Can Endorse on the Various Topics of the Day. Higher! higher!! go the prices of ihe neces-?a-ies of life under the McKinley bill. The luxuries ot the rich are not raised in price. A careful canvass of the city of Philadelphia indicates that there has been a fraudulent registration of nearly forty-five thousand there. The whole McKinley bill is ex plained by one sentence in the ad dress tf the New England Tariff Jte l'orni League : "The mtn by whom the new schedules have been at range:! have goods to sell." The Argonaut has moved from Nashville to llocky Mount. It is n w an eight page paper and shows enterprise anil gtt up on the part of its editor and managers. Brother Long has our wishes for the continu ed prosperity of The Argonaut. The advance in tin under the Mc Kinley bill is causing many contrac tors to lose money. The motto of the Republican party should be, "Down with the laboring man and up with the capitalist." About the only scripture that the party ol eys is to "Give unto him that hath and take away from him that hath not even what he hath." Col. Polk believes the Northwest and the South will come together. The people of the latter section want speakers from the South and nothing so touch their hearts a appeals for fraternity and unity between the sec tions. Therefore tnere will be an interchange of speakers between the Northwest and the South, for which Col. Polk is now making arrange ments. Ral. Cor. Messenger. The Raleigh correspondent of the Messenger interviewed a prominent Alliance man a few days ago who said this : "The Alliance has no enmity to lawyers. It is doing a great work in the political, social and industrial education of North Carolina. There is a great deal more discussion at its meetings earnest and valuable dis cussion, than the outside world knows of. This broadens the views, urticularly of the young men. It develops them and in just the right way. Of course there are some ex- rt mists in the Alliance, and yet those are honest of purpose, but the great mass are practical, conserva tive men. wrho are doing their State great good." Six million dollars went into the big Government building at Chicago. Now the building is going down in to the mud-hole over which it was erected. It is to be hoped that a similar fate will not overtake the World's Fair, part of which is to be built upon the lilled-in land of Lake Michigan. At any rate, this should be a warning to the Government not to put any more money into the Fair. If the millions that Chicago is beginning to ask from the Federal Treasury are granted, they will go into a deeper hole than the big Gov ernment building is falling into. New York Star. Gov. Campbell, of Ohio, was cen sured bv the Duckworth Club of Cincinnati, of which ho was a mem ber, for demanding the abolition of the old Board of Public Charities. The resolutions were mailed to the Governor, who sent the following reply : "Gentlemen, I have heard with susprise aid sorrow that the Duck worth Club of Cincinnati has formal ly censured ine for performing an official duty of the gravest nature. No self-respecting man desires to be affiliated with those who could per petrate such an indignity upon him. I therefore tender my resignation as a member of your club. (Signed) Jas. E. Campbell An Administration postmaster in Indiana has refused to aUow a peri odical published by the Tariff Re lorm Club in Indianapolis to go through tho mails at second-class rates on the pretended ground that it isn't a regular periodical althouglr a bona fide subscription list was shown. So far as we have heard the Post Office Department stands by this decision. But a Pennsylvania postmaster refused to allow a news paper that contained the New York World's exposure of Quay to be mailed at his office on the ground that evidence of Quay's criminality wa9 indecent or blasphemous matter, and therefore not mailable. In this case, however. Mr. Wannamaker recognized the fact that the decision might prove embarrassing and he reversed It. SOUTH KIYKIC ASSOCIATION. fSfx-cial Corr-).KrMli-iit. The fourteenth annual session of this body was held at Hickory Grove Oeiooor 23th .'loth. The Introduc tory Sermon was preached by Elder W, iv. Johnson.

The work of Missions within the bounds of the Association was prose cuted successfully during the year. About $220 having been expended for this object during the year. The Executive Board a.ked for ?3-j0 for the next year. The delegates pledg ed about ?240 of thissmount. Pledges were made for State Missions and Foreign Missions. The report ,n Education recom mended the churches to raise funds for Ministerial lulucation. Also to aid in raising !?.j0,M00 for th-: Edow ment of Wake Forest ( k)llege, and recommended tho establishment of an associational school. After a spirited discussion the re. pott was adopted. Capt. J. L. Au trey proposed to give a lot at Autrey ville on which to build the school, or to build the house himself and employ the teachers and call it a Baptist ; chool. The Association en couraged the latter plan, and advised the brethren to give it their patron age. It was then announced that the school would open in January under the principalship of Elder F. It. Underwood. A cash collection of $6.41 was made for the Education Fund for Wake Forest College. The Missionary Sermon was preach ed by Elder W. M. Page the ab est sermon he ever preached.

A vote of thanks for hospitality was extended to the community. "The attendance was large, atten tive and orderly, and hospitality abundant. The Association was a success in every rer-peet. By request of the Moderator, the closing exer cises were conducted by Dr. W. B. Harrell. The time of meeting was changed from Tuesday after the 4ih Suuday In October to Thursday be fore tho second Sunday in October. Delegate. A correspondent of the Wilming ton Messenger, speaking of Senator Ransom's speech, at Beaufort, says : His plea for the great Senator v ance was strikingly unselfish and touchingly sincere. Though a Sena tor of the United States himself, he told the people that no greater ca lamity could befall North Can lina or the Nation, than the defeat of his illustrious colleague, who, if he had any fault, was in sometimes espous ing the cause of the peoole more hastily than the judgment of his calmer moments would sustain. The name of .Vance was invariably greet- ed with an aoDlause. The reflex ef feet of which was to inspire Hansom to say more of Vance's thorough ness as a statesman; and it-ore fer vently to urge the election of legi latois, who, in returning Vance to the Senate would token the grati tude of the people and further dis iinguish the illustrious annals of our State. God speed his unselfisa mis sion to save the State and re elect Vance. Our highest joy comes when others rejoice with us HIS FLEETING IDEAL The Great Composite Novel.- Tlic Joint Work or I. T.

By MASY EASTLAEEL Illustrated by Miss E L SYLYE3TES. Copyright. All rights reserved. It is the nature of a man to pursne. He regards he whole world as a hunt ing' ground, aad anything that pleases lis fancy, whether it be a bird, a pretty woman or a brute, as his lawful prey. lie may not care for the game or know why he pursues it, but the chase is irresistible, and, like the child with the butterfly, he will spoil his pretty clothes, stub his toe and get his feet wet running through brambles and puddles as long as the winged thing is in .sight. If woman only knew it the could win her lover by eluding him, for man ever wants what he can't get easily, and prizes most the fruit that hangs highest. To him no beauty is so entrancing as that which smiles and blushes beneath the inystic web of a gauzed veil, and donbly lovely is the loveliness that turns and flies at his approach. Henshnll knew neither rest nor peace of mind. Ths throbbing, sobbing note of Edna's violin were as sweet to him ap the mu.siv- cf the rolling pphores to the old phile. xt .her. lie had eyes for no! blag but the soft browns of her h;ir, lashes, complexion and dress. He thought of her through the day and dreamed of her in the night, and cov.'-l thoy have been vocalized ev ery sigh would have uttered, "I will tindlier." And r.j he followed this small woman with his thoughts and his soul his bride Lena first !. "came moody, then tearful, and finally despondent that she threw herself in the arms of her companion and begged her to tell her what to dc. There was not any too much nectar in the make up of Mrs. Smith, and no dan ger of her sharpening the todge cf Zlrs. Hcnshalfs sensibilities. Instead f put ting her arm about her neck, arril.etri fying ber medulla spinalis with the magic of her touch, she took a hairpin from her coiffure and proceeded to loosen the cuticle about the girl's finger nails. "And so you are disappointed with married life already? Well, my dear, you have only made the common error of expecting too much. You have fool ishly invested the field cf wedlock with the couleur de rose, and studied your hero tluxragh the magnifying lens when you should have reversed the glass. "And so you arc disappointed with married life already?" "Now let me advise you net to be un reasonable; don't tell me you expected to marry an angel. You are a mortal and married to a man, one of the queer est brutes that treads the earth. Y'es, men are queer brutes," she repeated, crossing her eyes in fancy; "enthusiastic and deferential enough before marriage, but an entirely different sort of breed af terward." t . "But Henry isn't; he's the same now that he was a year ago. He scarcely notices me, and never speaks unless I ask him a question. There's something on his mind. It isn't his work, for he hasn't finished a canvas this long time; and it isn't I, that's certain." "Now, Lena, don't be foolish. You get as much petting as the average woman has a right to expect." "Right? Am I not married to him, Lis lawful wife, and shouldn't I expect sone evidence of his affection?' "Xo, expect nothing; you can drive a horse to water, but you can't make him drink. Let him get thirsty; let him alone." "But I don't want to let him alone." "And there's just where you make a mistake. When you get your third hus band you'll know how to manage him. The trouble with you is this, you have too many feelings and too much heart. It is a bother to have feelings, and my ad vice is to get rid of your heart if you want to have good digestion and keep your youth. s - "A woman with a heartis in the power of her husband; a wifa who has none can do as she pleases. Take all, give noth ing in return that's the true philosophy of matrimonial peace if you can't find contentment; and you needn't hunt for happiness, for it is not to be found on this planet in quantities to speak about. This sort of advice was gall and worm wood to the honest, innocent young woman, but she knew well enough that her companion spoke from her bitter ex perience, and nauseous as the dose was she took it, dried her eyes and went to dress for a walk. They had been at the Palace hotel in San Francisco for a week, and the paint er had sought in vain to meet his ideal. The amusement boards were placard ed with bills for ber concert engage ment, every performance of which he had. attended. H, had cultivated the ; i ; i fi: i acqiamtar.iv ot tee theatre tuanagvr, t and thrvnga him scurei s.z introduo- j tion tr Uerr RaJUiJpa Opp-r, whom h had wined and diiit 1 at the hotel. He had Kiioked, walked aad driven with him, and ad a last resort to win his con fidence begged the impresario to tit for a portrait. "Now, I would like very much to havd you and Mrs. Henshall inwet my little star, but I have nothing to say about it. It rests entirely with her, and she has positively refused to make any acquaint ance. These professional women, you know, have to be luinorod, but MLss Neville, I am convinced, has a reason for ,-.ihmgto avoid people, and as she is not well, I feel compelled to respect her wishes." Henshall was pretending to portray the musician one morning when this conversation took pi: ice, and at this re buff his brows knitted, his heart rank and Lis brash fell from his hand. "Well, of course, Herr Opper. I don't wish to seem impertinent, but I met Miss Neville several limes in New York." "You did?" interjected the musician. -'That is, I saw her heard her play, and I have r-cen her every night during this engagement. My reason for asking to bo presented is that I wish to make a picture cf her for tho next Academy. !she is the most beautiful creature I have ever seen or dreamed of, and if I could only paint her I believe tho pict ure would make me famous." The model, who was playfully dove tailing his fingers, offering no answer further than a mild indorsement of tho compliment to the girl's beauty, it sud denly occurred to llenry that it might bo policy to tho assistance of Lena, and excusing himself he went to call her. While he was away Opper got up to stretch Ids legs, and in the circuit of the improvised studio came upon a small folio, which carelessly opened revealed a sketch done on a btisiness card that fair ly took his breath away. "Miss Neville!" he muttered to him self. ' Then this is the villiau she has been trying to avoid ever since wo left New York! My God! audi have been totting him about her. Another! Three! Two more! As I live, there is nothing else. And I was seriously thinking to have this man paint herfroii. life. Well, well, well! this is great luck, i must go; this i3 something remarkable!" A few moments later, when Henshall returned with his wife to propose an in vitation for a supper party, he was sur pii'icd to find the room vacant. There was no sign of Herr Opper in the hall, and as the elevator was at the bot tom of the shaft he wisely concluded that his visitor had gone. The next thing was to send a playfully petulant note after him by messenger, and urge the importance of an early sitting for the next morning. The reply dumfounded him. Herr Opper would not be able to keep the appointment nor m ik-i another until his return to New York. At the concert that night tho manager could not be seen, and when he had been repulsed a third time Henrv fell to thinking with such fierce energy that he did not notice the burly detective in evening dress who followed him into the hall and occupied the seat adjoining his. When Dr. Watson reached Chicago and came face to face with his wife and his antagonist he was momentarily stunned. "Curse the luck!" he thought to him self. "There are four sleepers in the train, but only one dining car, and no matter how I calculated it would be awkward. There's no use figuring. I can't do it." And he instantly became solicitous for his patient. "My dear sir, what is it? fcJpeak," put ting one hand on the old man s shoulder and taking his pulse with the other. "You are pale, your eyes are glassy and you're chilled. Forgive me, dear Mr. Crawford, the run from New York has been too much for j-ou. We should have laid off at Detroit. But we'll make amends here." And lefore the astonished- old gentle man ccald recover his senses at this un expected burst of interest Dr. Watson signalled a porter to conduct him to the waiting room while he went to over take Miss Brown, who had already ar ranged her section for the journey. "My dear," he said, taking her by the arm, 'Tve changed my mind; come out on the platform, I want to speak to you," anxious to avoid the possible recognition of "his wife. "3Ir. Crawford is not well. and I have decided to stay over until to morrow, but you can go on alone. Here's the letter and the tickets, ami here's some money for your expenses. "Go to Miss Crawford at once, and $.300 spot cash if you catch the bird and hold her until we arrive. If any thing happens I'll wire you and sign the message 'Brother,' so as not to arouse any suspicions in the mind of Miss Edna should she chance to see it. That's all, I guess. Good-by, sister. Won't you shake hands? Well, have it as you like. Be good to yourself and look sharp." The bags and traveling blankets were hardly gathered up when the bell rang, the cry of "all aboard" was heard and the tnin steamed out of the depot. Dr. Watson called a carriage and or dered the driver to take them to the Pal mer house. . By way of sustaining his apprehen sions for the welfare of Mr. Crawford, who was in reality very much prostrated from the fatigue of the journey, the doc tor conducted him to the Turkish bath and had him steamed, rubbed and rolled until he was nearly dead. He had to be carried to his room on a stretcher, where he remained through the entire week. Message after message was wired to Miss Brown during the week 'without g itting any answer in reply. Suddenly one day the treachery of the woman flashed through the doctor's mind, and he dashed off a dispatch, and marking it "rush" he carried it down to the rotunda of the hoteL The dispatch was addressed to Louise Neville. It read; "Come at once. Your father is dying. - "De. Watson." X FISTS FLY". By J0HH L, SULLIVAN. Elastrated by H. E0TTH0F. " Copyright. All righto reserved. Baldwin s theatre was thronged with the beauty, wealth aad fashion of San Francisco. ;- :--if-i', ... . There, was not a seat vacant, and even standing room was at a premium. . Henry rnenehall, moody and discon- tented, occuptoa a proscenium box aun. His bride of a few days wa at tho hotel, forgotten by her husband. It was to ba ths !.i-.t appearance of hia divinity, and although be had tried every pu&ab! and kaponble way of m-vtang her, if only for a few xainMes, h had failed. That night be had dclennin.l to to her at all haxards. Ieak Early in the evening hs stati -med hira ilf at tbe btag. tut ranee, and there patiently awaited her arrival. It wanted but fifteen xninuts to H o'clock when ehe drove up ia a xnodtvt hansoia. Sh stejiped lightly oat, and glancing neither right nor left bolted for tho door. Her fame waa no great that there was a crowd waiting on the sidewalk to catch a glimpse of her face, and no one paid rny particular attention to the haggard young man in evening dress among them until he suddenly pushed forward and attempted to lay a detaining baud on the young lady's afm. She did not notice the movement be cause, quick as he was, there was another quicker, and before he could touch her a big, weU dressed man stepped quickly forward, and with no centle hand dragged He-nshall back Into the crowd, wying gruffly and fiercely: "Must not block the passageway. 'Gainst the rules, see?" "What the devil I say, let me go, will you? I must see that lady. I know her. Do you hear? Who the devil are you, anyway?" gasped Henshall strug gling in the grasp of his captor. The latter sintled 6neeringly and held the young man easily until the fair vio linist had passed through tho stage door. Then he released him, remarking: "I know you know her, you bbvekguard, and I know she left orders that she wished to see no one, and least of all j'ou. If we could only induce h ;r to make a complaint against you I would take the greatest delight in putting you behind the bars, you scoundrel. As you have asked for my name I will give you my card. Here it is," and he handed the artist a plain white piece of paste board stamped: : JIM BURNS, : Detective foliee, Central Office. : To say that Henshall was surprised wouia 1x3 putting it mildly, lie was so indignant and astonished by tho big de tective's tirade that he could only Usten in helpless amazement. He took the card mechanically and asked stupidly: "She said she didn't want to seo me? Why, she don't know me. Burns laughed sarcasticallv as ho turned away, saying: "Remember, young fellow, I'll keep my eyes on you," and before Henshall could gather hiz wits sufficient to de mand an explanation Burns ha4 disap peared. The young artist found himself in a ridiculous position, the center of a guy ing mob, when he did recover himself. "Get on to the Johnnie P "Pipe de patent leathers!" ' 'He would be a mash er, would he?" and other such uncom plimentary allusions were showered on him, so he hastily went around to the front of the house and pushed his way to his box, determined at the first op portunity of having an explanation "with Mr. Jim Bums, detective." Two minutes after he had gone away from the stage entrance a red headed messenger boy shoved his way through the crowd that still lingered there. He rapped loudly at the door for ad mittance, while those around regarded him curiously, and many asked him, "What's up?" "Nuthin'," was his nonchalant reply. After a delay of several minutes the stage door was cautiously opened a few inches, and a portion of the good nat ured Teutonic countenance of Herr Op per became visible. Seeing the boy in uniform he admit ted him at once, asking: "Message? For whom?' Without any undue haste, and mak ing no reply, the lad unbottoned his jacket, shoved his left hand carefully into his inside coat pocket and pulled out a book. Opening this carefully he took out a message addressed to "Miss Louise Ne ville, Baldwin's theatre, urgent," and handed it to the impatient manager. As he saw the address the latter turned as if to hurry away, but the im perturable messenger caught him by the coat tail, shoved his Httle black covered book in his face and said: "Sign, please. And say, give a fellow a ticket, will yer?" With a smothered execration the wor thy Opper signed'for th3 message, and never heeding the boy's other request rushed off with the telegram to his star's dressing room. As he approached it he heard the low, sweet strains of "Home, Sweet Home" played with a touch on the violin which made it fairly seem to speak. The music ceased abruptly as he knocked for admission, and the door was opened by Miss Neville, who gazed at her manager in a startle! way. "Oh, Mr. Opper, is it time to go on? j I had no idea that I was late." j "You are not late. The curtain will ? not go up for ten minutes yet, but this , dispatch just arrived and I thought it best to bring it to you at once." Y The girl's face turned deathly pale. "Let ma have it." she gasped. j He hanced her the little yello v packet, i She tore the envelope hurriedly, and it !. needed but a glance to master the con- tents: "Come at once.

Five minutes later, heavily veiled, Louise Neville emerged from the stags door and entered tho cab awaiting her. As &he drove off Burns got into another cab, ordering the driver to follow tho first. Meantime Opjx r was going through tho most difileult ordeal known to tho theatrical manager, that of trying to account for tho non-appexrauco of his star.

He rushed into tb- depot and bought a ticket, and was told that a train would leave in two minutes. He jumped aboard and rushed hastily through the cars. At -last ms heart gave a tnvat lamp and then nearly stopped beating. He saw her in a forward ear, her shapely head resting in a pathetic way on one little gloved hand. Then indeed Henshall ktt hu reason, and knew that the woman before him was tho woman he truly love 1. Forgetful alike of prudence and com mon sense he walked rapidly toward him and laid his band on her shoulder. "Pardon me, Miss Neville.

The girl could not see his face dis tinctly. She feared all stranger. s she arose and said icily: "Please g. away. I do not know you, sir." She had no need to ear any more. Burns had been just a little lifglectful or else Henshall never would have got as near her as he had. But the big de tective determined to atone for hi neglect. He applied fist, boot and hi magnifi cent strength to tho painter's anatomy, and rushed him through the car like e whirlwind, and out on the platf orm. nenshall was not a coward.
