Kenny Craven, aged fifteen years, made and I raited nine thousand bags in one d.-iv. The work was, of course, done entirely by machinery, but it seems marvellous that such a number could even be handled in that time. This is the largest number ever put through in one day. Tlmt I'antM Factory. The Standard some time ago said something about a pants factory for Concord. Without using names, there is a movement on foot for the estab lishment of such an enterprise here in Concord. Figures and statistics, &c, are being gathered. The Stan dard hopes to Chronicle the consum mation of this scheme at no distant day. lie 1'hotographcd Them. Kev.

Seeing Mr. Misenheimer and recognizing him, the "cooter" turned on his back and exhibited his mark. Mr. M. brought him to town. Rev. Tom IHxon'a Lecture. Pen and ink cannot describe the beauty and charms of Tom Dixon's lecture on "Backbone." The Stan dard would not dare undertake it The house was indeed a good one. That all thought the lecture (one huiir and a-half) too short, shows that the audience was intensely en tertained. Tom Dixon is a genius; he is a scholar, and he is an orator. Mr. Dixon will be no stranger to any Concorder after this. Lie is a son that North Carolina is proud of, and with perfect right. 4June to Oregon. Earnest A. Thies, the second son of Capt A. Thies, of the Phct'Lix mine, left Saturday evening for Cor nucopia, Oregon. One of the richest mines on the Pacific coast has not yielded great returns for operations on a'-couut of some foreigu ma ter in the ore. A proposition that in volves au immense sum of filthy lucre was made Earnest, who, by the way, is thoroughly skilled in mining, if he succeeded in planting ma chinery that would work the ore successfully. Having had a ton shipped here, Mr. Thies tried his piocess on it and extracted 1)9 per cent, of the gold and over half or the silver, for which he was not working, fie goes now to superin tend the placing of machinery at that mine. Across the continent our genial friend is gone. m Will Support a 31 iNHionary. At the close of the morning Ser vice in the First Presbyterian church on Sunday the gentlemen of the congregation were requested to re main for a short time. They did so, and in response to an appeal from their pastor, Dr. Payne, increased their subscriptions to the cause of foreign missions so that their church will give annually more than $000, which is sufficient to support a worker in the foreign field. This shows a remarkable increase f i ... :.. . i.. 1. i"kl 01 interest in me work, vuiy year ago an attempt was made to rai e $ 1,000 iu the four Presbyterian churches in the county but failed.

EXT THAT IS IMPORTANT When the management of this pa per reduced the subsciiotion price to $1.00 per annum, it was understood to be cash in advance. We are en deavoring to establish the cash sys tern, and such will be better for both. We cannot afford to send out as large and full a paper as the Stand ard is for one dollar, ON time. Our subscribers, the vast majority of them, are from several months to one year behind. This cannot be and secure the $1.00 rates. We hope all who are not certain about their subscription will call. We hope to be able to make some radical changes and improvements iu the Standard at an early day, but cannot unless our friends every one of whom is a colonel heed this call. Remem ber that oue dollar is not much, but D and that of other3 help to as sassinate obscaclep, kill the bear and do wonders. We expect many calls soon and many names to go into our sewing machine box. SHORT LOCALS. Everybody talks wet weather. Travel is brisk, but business frightfully dull.

It is a matter of great convenience that the omnibuses and dummy now leave for the depot a 12:20 and 12:30 p. m. to meet the 12:50 train. This allows time for eating dinner at 12, and 20 minutes is plenty of time for checking baggage, &c, at the depot Heretofore the waiting three-quai ters of an hour for the train bas been a source of great a in yance to the traveling public.

Miss Annie Cannon, Will Morris, Miss Dolly Gay and Howard Cannon went to Davidson College this afternoon aud will remain until the commencement is over. This cool, damp weather is ad mirably suited for the festive scenes at our various commencements. We congratulate the weareis of dainty dresses upon the absence of dust. On such days they can walk or drive without a misgiving. From every side we hear: "Tremendous crowds," "Boys covering themselves with glory." The Public Roatl. Oh, my Masters! Powerful Goodness ! The public roads of Cabarrus county, if not the worst in the State, they are at least worse than ever known. They look like hopes, life, sweetness and other 6tuff had emigrated forever.

Some mornings ago the accommo dation train from Greensboro arrived here a little behind time ana remain ed an unusually long time, eo the passengers thought Quite a number of pupils were aboard from Elon College and perhaps a dozen or two visitors who had been there toaltend commencement, many of them from Virgina and anxious to reach Raleigh for fear they might miss connection. Finally after their patience was almost thread-bare they enquired of the conductor the cause of the delay and he told them that he was waiting for one of the officials, who was aboard the train, to finish shaving. Durham Sun. The Town Hoiids. The proper authorities are in cor respondence with a number of houses as regards the engraving of the bonds to be issued. It is determined to have a pretty design. Just whose portraits will beprintrdon them has not been decided. The Standard thinks the picture of the town bull, cart and driver should be at one end t show the past, and the dummy and graded school buildings and the factories as background to show us now. The depot posts shall not be honored with their picture. The posts are to stay four feet iu the ground. Already hungry nun are after the bon is. They declare that it is pain ful to wait much longer. Concord bonds will sell above par, mark you. m ill TIiouihk Concert. The free (?j entertainment Tues day night in Caton's Hall drew a considerable crowd, but we under stand that financially it was not a success. The niu.-ical performance was quite creditable, however, and one feature which was unexpected, and is rather new for Concord, af forded a good deal of amusement. Before the exercises closed, and after the collection was takeu up, 1 nomas announced two articles were to be given away: a silver cup to the prettiest and most popular young lady, aud a pipe to the ugliest man in town, the parties to be elec ted by the votes of those present, ten cents a vote. A good many votes were cast, and the election re sulted in Miss Lai Hill's receiving the cup, and J. F. Nt well, of the Concord Times, is the happy posses sor of the pipe. We hear that Arthur Faggart and the Standard man also received honorable men tion in this contest. The Cold .nines in o. . The writer ha3 recently visited some of the gold mines in No. 9 township. The first we come to is the Wiley Dry mine near Cold Springs, and about eight miles from Concord. This has been developed by Lefler, Beatty & Co. These gentlemen have a boiler and engine and mill already in operation. Other ma chinery will be placed at an eatly day. Wesley Cassel has several gold bearing veins on his place, but so far has been only partially developed. The ore is said to be very good. The next mining property is that of Charley Bost, which is now being developed by Barn hard t & Isenhour. These men have considerable ex perience in mining business and will make it pay. They have been working but a short time and al ready have taken out about twenty tons of ore. The ore is said by ex perts to be worth at least $20 per ton. Machinery will be placed on this mine soon. There is a great deal more mineral property in this town ship that ought to be developed. No. 9 certainly has more gold mines and more mineral property than any other township in the county. The first 'gold ever discovered in the United States was in this township. The noted Phoenix not at work at present but which has been per haps the most successfully worked and the bebt pjying mine in the State, is in this township. The amount of mineral property in No. 9 is immense, and with enterprise and capital this township will be the ecene of active mining industry. Hcstlek.

Dr. Law, superintendent of American Bible Society work in North and South Carolina, addressed a crowded house on the great need of Bibles in every land and country. His talk was listened to with interest by all present. At the close of his remarks Mr. J. A. Sims, president of the Concord Bible Society, took charge of the meeting and declared the election of officers for the ensuing year in order. Mr. J. C. Lippard was elected president, and Mr. D. C. Correll secretary and treasurer. The same executive committee was re-appointed, Mr. Mack Fergu son taking the place of Mr. Vaugh an, removed. The storm becom ing more violent every moment, the audience became very restless and exercises were greatly hurried at last The secretary and treasurer reported about jCO.OO and a number of books on hand. He also stated that in a canvass of the town, 430 families were visited and only two found without some portion of the Scriptures. These two were at once supplied with Bibles.

A correspondent writing from Trinity College to the Charlotte Chronicle says: On Sunday morn ing, Juue 7th, Dr. Bays, of Concord, preached the annual sermon before the Theological Society. His text was, " For no man can do these mira cles that thou doest except God be with him " Ilia sermon was an able effort, aud contained much of pecu liar power, not only for tie divinity students, but to all his hearers. He reached the heart of every hearer and made a lasting impression. His very manner seemed to command the attention of his audience. The Orchestra Vone. J" oon County Father C. D. Barrin ger, of No. 8, drove into town for the orchestra, which engaged to fur nish music for the commencement exercises of North Carolina College. The boys never did ride behind a pure, genuine, iron-gray team, draw ing a spring wagon, but they did this time. Father Barringer was proud of his load of strings and brass, and those who could make them talk, so to speak. The " spank ing" grays caught the inspiration, so to speak. The crowd was happy jn the weeping clouds. Closing of Virginia Dare Institute. The closing exercises of Virginia Dare Institute consisted of recita tions, music, &c. That the perfor mance was far above the average there is no doubt, and that Miss Atwater, the music instructress, has succeeded most admirably with her class is attested by the earnestness and manner of musical execution by her pupils. The hall was 60 intensely hot, and the order consequently so miserably bad, that the exercises were not as pleasant either to per formers or audience as they would have been under other circumstances. The Virginia Dare has had a pros perons session, and the enrollment was very large. Mrs. Ervin, the principal, and Misses Maggie John ston and Atwater are well pleased with the manner in which their school was sustained.

THE COl'XTY H03IE Visited on June t It, Jennie Casseday's liirthday. It was the writer's pleasure for the first time to be one of the number who visited the poor at the Home on Tuesday. About 2 p. m. the party, consisting of ladies, gentlemen and children twenty-one in all started from town, and after a drive which would have been enjoyed except for the frightful condition of the roads, reached their destination a little be fore three. The visit was expected, aud every thiug had b:en put in readiness for the occasion, which is looked for ward to with so much pleasure every year. Soon after the arrival the ladies, baskets in hand, retired to the dining room, where a feast of good things was spread upon two long tables. A better picnic dinner is rarely seen. Meats, pickles, bread, fruits, butter, and the greatest variety of -sweet things and a quantity of iced lemon ade, were provided. The tables were then carefully covered, and every one ou the place gathered in the hospital cottage, which two invalids now occupy, and Rev. W. G. Camp bell held a short service. His address was in every way appropriate, and abounded in words of comfort and fraternal sympathy ti all. The hymn, "Jesus, Lover of My Soul," was sung, the 27th Psalm read, and the pleasant and edifying exercises were closed with the long metre doxology. The white inmates were now in vited to the tables, and waiters car ried to those who are confined to their rooms. The colored persons were served in an adjoining room. Those who witnessed the pleasing scene and heard the grateful ex pressions of delight on the part of the recipients of these gifts will not soon forget the day. Good readiug matter and flowers, with Scripture texts, were also distributed and re ceived with apparent pleasure. We must not omit to mention the excellent order which seems to exist on the premises under the manage ment of Mr. Cook, his wife and Mrs. Dollar. We think the poor of our county are kindly and w:sely cared for. There are twenty-six inmates, eight of whom are colored ; six are canfined to their rooms, though not dangerously ill ; three of these are colored. It may be a matter of interest to Eome to know why June 9th was selected for this visit. It is the birthday of Miss Jennie Casseday, the originator of the flower mission work aud the present superintendent of it. This lovely Chistian woman i3 an invalid, now living in Louis ville, Ky., and though she has spent more than half of her life within the four walls of a sick room, her influence and her labors have been a benediction to thousands of earth's weary ones. For several year3 her birthday has been observed as Floral Mission Day all over the United States. A Well Known Woman Worker. The ladies of Concord W. C. T. U. are expecting about the 20th of June a visit from Mrs. J. K. Barney, National Superintendent of Jail and Almshouse Work.

It is said that Mrs. Barney has visited and spoken in more jails and almhouse3 than any other living woman. Highest market price paid for but ter, eggs and chickens at G. E- Fishkb'b. A VERY SEVERE STORM Occurred in Yndkln County on the Evening of the 5th. Mrs. Ja3. C. Gibson and others are visiting at'Shallow Ford, Yadkin county, and writes Mr. Jas. C. Gib son about a very severe storm that occurred there on Friday evening. It must have been a cyclone and water spout combined. Two cloud3 met (coming from opposite directions) over Shallow Ford plantation. For one-hulf hour the wind raged, the thunder roared,, the lightning Hashed and water poured at a fear ful rate. Large native oaks were jerked up by the root and others twisted to splinters around the house; the entire orchard was com pletely destroyed; 240 panes were broken from the windows; the rooms as wet as if the house were un roofed; and the grain crop cut flat to the ground. The letter says: "The trees are entirely stripped" of their leaves, many of them as bare as in mid-winter. As the sun came out, calm and bright after the storm had passed, it shone upon a strange ly beautiful scene all over the park and grove the grouud was cov ered to the depth of several inches with the hail and leaves, looking like a splendid carpet of green and white; but beyond, the fields lay in un broken glistening whiteness with out one vestige of vegetation left visible. I think we must have had both a cyclone and waterspout, for once we saw the rain and hail writh ing and whirling through the back yard as if in a terrific whirlwind, and the old meadow part of the upper bottom is washed bare down to the hard clay soil (we understand that thi3 was still meadow and the grass and about two feet of soil were literly torn up. Ed.) the sand being piled in heaps and ridges so as to completely obstruct the road below. Richard Janet and Elizabeth drove down after the storm but could get no nearer to the river than that place. They had a strange little experience while there. They had stopped in the road because they could go no furth er when the horse suddenly threw up her head, breathed hard and turned her eyes with a fright ened look back to them, and in a mo uent they distinctly felt upon their backs aud necks a strong puff of almost hot air followed instant ly by a cold one this was repeated several times." 'COLU-llLOOllED Ml'KDER ' Committed by W. S. Talbirt of Crbar wuh County.

One bank president is a fugitive from ju-tice; another is in prison. Two bank cashiers are held on charges of a seriou3 character. The city treasu rer is in prison. The city treasury has been looted of nearly half a million do.lars, and state funds to the amount of nearly a million dollars have disappeared. And above all dark hints are thrown out that many other men in high place in the bus iness and political life of Philadel phia have had a part in this appalling misuse of public money, and that the half or quarter of the truth has not yet been told.

One of the sharpest, if not the strangest, cases ever brought to the attention of medical men in this section, is that of Sarah Nea?, who lives beyond the North Carolina line in Tennessee. Dr. T. E. Bale?, of Caney Branch, Greene county, Tenn., was 'in Ashe ville last week, coming here to vaifc relatives and also to attend the State medical convention. Dr. Bales is a brother-in-law of Alderman T. C. Starnes, of Ashevillc. The Doctor told the story of Sarah Nea3' affliction to several of the city physicians, and endeavored to call the attention of the conven tion to it. But he had come in just before the work closed, when everything was hurried, and that body could not take up the matter. Dr. Bales brought with him a small sachel, which was filled with small pieces of bone, with which to substantiate his statement, if any should doubt. Although the convention did not investigate the matter, Dr. Bales showed his exhibit to several of Ashe ville'e physicians who took great interest in the matter. Dr. Bales has had many interro gations as to the case of the Neas woman, and has written a full ac count of the case to Alderman Starnes, which gentleman has given the Citizen the letter for publica tion in full. Dr. Bales is one of the most prominent physicians of East Ten nessee, and his high standing in the profession is sufficient voucher for the truth of the story. Dr. Bales' letter, dated Caney Branch, Greene county, Tenn., is as follows : " In answer to your letter of en quiry about the case of Sarah Neas, who lives about two miles from this place, I will Btate that to me and other physicians who have visited her, the case is a very remarkable one, and as far as 1 know, something new in medical science. There has been a short sketch of her case iu several newspapers of recent date, but the accounts given of her case were very brief, and in some respects not altogether accurate. "As I have been her physiciiu for abcut two year3 I feel that I am able to state the facts of the case just as they are. Dr. Bell, of Par rotsville, Tenn., is an old and able physician. He was formerly her physician, and will state in sub stance what I do in regard to her case. Many others, neighbors and visitors, will do the same. Her cast is one of bone exfoliation. One sido of her body only is affected. She is about 71 years of age, of average height, weight about 120 pounds, and except the disease herein spoken of seems otherwise to be in good health. "About twenty-one years ago while ironing she scorched the end of the index linger of the left hand and on the evening of the tame day cut the end of the finger that waa scorched on a piece of broken dish. The night following it gave her great pain, so much so that she walked the floor all night. Ou tha following morning the finger was very much swollen, and the cuticle protroded from the end of the fin ger. This she cut off with a pair of scissors. This operation left ex posed to view three yellow pimples which contained all the pua that ever gathered in the wounded finger. She suffered pain all the time for about two months. At the end of thi3 time the bone exfoliation be gan. First it commenced in tho phalanges of the fingers, and and aa the disease progressed the forearm became involved. First the pha langes then the metacarpus, the car pus, the radius, the ulna, and of re cent years the scapula and inferior maxillary have been involved. The humerous has not as yet been affec ted. "The exfoliation take3 place spon taneously. About ten minutes be fore it occurs the- patient is seized with intense pain which continues until the bone is expelled. Thera is no hemorrhage, no suppuration or inflammation, and alway3 heals by first intention. "No pua ba3 ever formed in any wound that has ever been inflicted, by this disease, and what seems to be most remarkable in the case, is that the bone seems to be immediate ly replaced by some process of ossifi cation, which may be inferred from the fact that there is no disfigura tion of the part from which the bone is expelled. The bone does not always make its appearance on the surface instantly after breaking loose, but occasionally there ia one that will be some hours moving down the arm. They will move an inch or so very rapidly and remain at that point some little time, then move oa a little farther, and con tinue in thi3 way until they reach the back of the baud and thero make their appearance ou the sur face. The bones from the inferior maxillary make their appearance on the surface near where they break loose. "On one occasion I was called very hurridly to sec her. Ou my arrival I found a bone lodged in her throat. I removed the bone and she told ms she had swallowed two, previous to my arrival, and while sitting talking to her a bone about one inch iu length came from her left ear. The bone3 all look natural though some of them, look as if they had been bleached. "The number of bones expelled in pieces up to this timei3 520. There can be no deformity detected. She has until recently had good use of her arm, but it is now impaired to some extent She is the mother of one child, and is free from any disease that would haye a tendency to produce softening of the bone. She has been a woman of good con stitution otherwise, and during her life has taken very little mercury." Asheville Citizen. Send U3 your job priutin a'
