Friday morning a committee reported
November 14 as the date for holding
the next synod at Raleigh. A con
trolling interest in Peace Institute was
reported by a committee to have been
bought by Prof. Dinwiddle, which
pleesed the synod much. The commit
tee cn educational Institutions gave
a most favorable report of Davidson

the synod's control. There were a

An interesting talk was made by
A. J. MeKelway, editor cf the Pres
byterian Standard, showing the paper
to have Increased greatly in circula
tion, advertising and reading matter.
As ta future policy, he favored contin
uing the paper instead of selling out
to rival papers, as might be done.
The report of regents of the orphan
home showed that the institution to

President Richard II. Battle, of the

Adinhal Schley a special invitation to
attend the State Fair October 18th. A
letter received from Schley says that
he has already promised the people of
Frederick to visit them that day. He
then says: "As this ii to meet the
people of my home I am sure you will
appreciate the regret I feel in having
to forego the pleasure of meeting my

hope.however, I may have the pleasure

old North Carolina in the near future."
There is a queer ease, ou the docket
of the Supreme Court from the flf'.h
dictrict. A negro was wanted in South
Carolina for murder. The sheriff of
Cumberland county, this State, was on
the lookout for the criminal and near
Fayctteville a conductor on the train
painted out as the man a negro who
was arrested and jailed. But he prov
ed to be the wrong man and now ho
sue3 the railroad company for $3,000
itamaefa. It Is certainly a case in
which the liability of a railroad to
damages is strained to the utmost.
At the last session of the Legisla
ture Prof. Holmes, at the instance of
the "Good Reads Association," secured
the enactment of a road law which
applies to 47 counties. The Supreme
Court Is now called upon to pass on
the validity of the law, there being two
appeals for injunction cases.

"My Fellow Citizens: It gives me
very great pleasure to participate with
men of the North and of tne
South, in this glad reunion of heart?.
We are already united; uie pea..
which Grant and Lee made at. Appo
mattox has been Xept, not by law or
restraint, but by love and fraternal re
gard. The Union today rests not ou
force v.hica may fail, but rests in the
hearts of the people, a union that nev
er can be severed.
"If I have been permitted in the
slightest degree to help in the work of
reconciliation and unification, I will
esteem it the greatest honor of my life.
When I made the call for troops to
prosecute the Spanish war, men from
the North and South, without regard
to political belief or religious greed,
rmr to the standard of the Union.
The best men of the South came; the
sons of old Confederate soldiers. The
be3t men of the North came; the sons
f Hi. members of the Grand Army
of the Republic. All came together in
heart and hand to follow the flag of
their country wherever it might lead.
We have been reconciled; more than
reconciled for our reconciliation has
been baptised in the best blooi of both
sections of our beloved country. It a
Northern soldier put the flag up at
Santiago, a Southern soldier, the gal
lant Brumby, cf Georgia, put it up at
Manila. It rests with us to book to the
future, putting the past behind us.

Scotsman says. Is very rangulne cf th

correct, as Thursday night the War
office had news of a British advance
from Ladysmith. and was hourly ex

"A strong, noble column, under Sir

by General Sir Archibald Hunter,

has made no formal request for such

Track Tanks For Freight Engines.
The use of track tanks by which lo
comotives of high speed passenger
trains may take vater without stop
ping Is almost universal on the larger
Eastern roads, .where fast expresses
are the rule. The Baltimore & Ohio
railroad has a numben between Wash
ington and Philadelphia, and intends
to equip the entire main line in the
future. This decision was recently
arrived at through the use of passen
ger locomotives, equipped with water
scoops, on fast freight trains. It was
found that much time was saved, dan
ger from stopping being reduced to a
minimum and cost of running lessen
ed. The transportation officials made
some calculations ard the figures
showed a saving of no small sum, it
track tanks are used for slow freights
on the divisions where business is very
heavy. The extra stops for water
take mudh time and the wear and tear
on equipment is no small matter, and
if five stops on each train can be elim
inated between Cumberland and Balti
more where trains aTe the thickest,
the saving will be large.

Mr. Markham's most recent poem,
The Muse of Brotherhood, is one of
the few really great poems that the
close of the century has produced. In
it Mr. Markham voices a lofty optim

and more convincing than the notes
of hopelessness and despair that char
acterizes the Man with the Hoe. At
the same time he nobly sets forth the
principal of that universal brother
