Tke Teachers' Extrati to Europe,
Those who have iu charge the
manageuient of the N. C. Teachers'
Assembly, deserve much praise for
the efficient manner in which they
have always prepared for the pleas
ure and entertainment of the mem
bers of the Assembly. But they
have fairly eclipsed themselves, and
the teachers of every other state, in
providing what promises to be a
most enjoyable excursion to Europe
It will a six weeks trip, leaving
Morehead City July 4tb, and return
ing abwtit Ai g 20th. They propose
to visit Ediuboro, Glasgow, Belfast,!
(aud the celebrated Giant's Cause
way near there), Ayr( Bum's. home)
Loudon and Paris. At each of the
two last places, they will remain six
days, taking in the great Internation
al Exposition at Paris, which is
of iitatlf amply worth what the
whole trip costs. The cost for the
entire trip will be only $150K which
will include all necessary expenses.

Perhaps in no other direction has
the fancy of rich Americans reached
so extravagant a point as iu the con
struction of 6tables. A few days
ago a man in one of the smaller
citie3 of New York State gave a
dinner party in his stable, to cele
brate the completion of that struct
ure, lie is a rich man, but not par
ticularly well known. There is no
lack of old-fashioned and uncon
ventional houses in the town where
he lives, but perhaps no one building
in the place will ever achieve such
notoriety as this stable is destined to
attain. Everylody has been jiiore
or less amused at the common spec
tacle of a ten thousand dollar house
and a fifty thousand dollar stable,
but few 6tables hae reached the
proportions of the one which has
jnst bestowed a new distinction upon
Syracuse. The fact that it cost con
siderably over five hundred thousand
dollars is of small consequence com
pared to the ineffable grandeur of
detail of the establishment When
the groom steps back from cleaning
the harness, he will stand at ease
upon a soft and thickly woven Turk
ish rug which was bought at a great
bargain, we are gravely informed,
for a thousand dollars. Many of
the portieres which divide the dif
ferent compartments of the stable
were quite as expensive as this rug,
and the draperies throughout are of
the most valuable- sort More wor
thy of note, however, than any of
these details, is the fact that, in the
small blacksmith's- shop which is
located in one corner of the building,
the ffistheticism of the owner has
reached such a point that att of the
tools, including the forge and the
anvil are either nickel or silver

Is Mr. Flagler, the proprietor of
the Ponca Jde Leon Hotel, of St
Augustine, Florida, if we may
judge from the following taken
from the Baltimore Sun:
"Curious stories come from the
Ponce de Leon Hotel in St Augus
tine. Mr. Flagler's expenditure
there, now amounts to nearly
$6,000,000. Early in January thin
were only twelve guests in the hotel.
At the same time two bands . vv tre
engaged in the hotel. One was a
Spanish band that played during
the dinnfr hour on mandolins aud
sang quaint Spanish songs. The
other was a famous New York band,
which played in the courts at the
morning ana evening concerts.
Mr. Seavey, the manager of the
hotel wrote Mr. Flagler and sug
gested as there were only twelve
guests in the house, he dispense
with one of the bands. Mr. Flag
ler wrote back that he didn't want
any sugestions from Mr. Sevey as
to how expenses could be decreased,
but that if he had anything to say
as to how the attractiveness of the
hotel could be increased, he would
be glad to hear from him. Mr.
Flagler does not seem to be dis
couraged. He has just bought the
railroad running from St Angus
tine to Palat&a and from St. Augus
tine to Jacksonville. Last Sunday
he changed both of these to broad
gauge roads and shortened the
schedule more than half. He is

will cost $200,000. This depot he
will surround with a superb park.
He is paving every street running
to the hotel with asphalt at his own
expense) to make St Augustine tlx
grandest pleasure spot on earth.
His Russian baths iu the Alcazar
cost $300,000, and are luxurious
beyond description. He says he
will spend $20,000,000 before he
has completed hi3 pleasure plant to
meet his ideas."
Why is the United States known by
the name Uncle Sam, and when was
the name given ?
It was during the year; 1812 that
this hrase originated as a title for
the United States. A large amount
of provision were-brought at Troy
N. Y., by Elbert Anderson, a Unit
ed States contractor. The goods
were inspected at Troy, by two
brothers named Ebenezer and Sam
uel Wilson, the Itater of whom was
known among all the workmen as
Uncle Sam. The packages of goods
were marked E. A. U. S. A witty
workmen was asked what these let
ters meant, aud jocosely said it must
be Elbertt Anderson and Uncle Sam.
The latter term soon came to be in
current use for the United States.
