KORNER WRITES.
The weather is in the ex
trenie of chnngefulneas. Th
present influence of Jupite:
and Mars on 'this mundane
sphere hs its equal only in
that of a sugar trust lobyist
on the United States Senate
It has chilled and dampened
everything save the fervor of
tk womalMjffrage advocator and the
aidor of a !Fueion Legislature. As
for me and my house we are hoping
that the hog and hominy, inter-"
epersed here and there with that
hirsaite appendage, in common par
anceinownes rabbit, will prolong
its star nntil the fitful season is
over. - Hog and hominy, unless in
cooperated with some culinary vege
table, is very monotonous diet, 3Iy
of t repeated failures to exchange at
anything - like an equil value car
tridges and partridges precludes the
possibility of decorating my menu
card with that delicacy, quail pie.
This inability, Mob on my part is
neither wilful nor premeditated,
enbtrftcts from this otherwise appe
tite persuader, all its economical
and homelike aroma ; so we are
pfOSewreBori. iu iuu uuuirbbicairu
barnyardNillfor our plumaged
luxuries. The (finSrefifieJietween
the two I may venture to say iir&bput
on a par with Mr. Cleveland's dis
tmction between gold and silver,
both as to quality and size. And I
might add that the gold is about as
far out df my reach as the partridges.
Sometimes our plain, homely fare
fails to please the eye or charm the
palate. It even pulls upon our
muBCulo-membrauous reservoir; then
we have "recourse to that most nota-
' ble, hunger satisfying esculent, the
sleek candle appendaged opossum
Like a populietic campaigner this
marsupial quadruped is a nocturnal
peradtalator and gathers his sua
tenance whilst others are wrapped
in the arms of Morpheus or in bed.
The procuring of this epienrian
feast in its original simplicity is
economical and invigorating and
interesting. We Biniliugly boycott

-paraphernalia than thooe necessary
luxuries that adorn every well regu
lated household an axe and i
hound then in the wee ema' Lours
we return ladened with a noonday
meal dangling from a split etick.
This trophy is as . dear to U3 as a
senatorial seat is to a populist or the
gold reserve to Mr. Carlyle, not
merely for i8 intrinsic ortb, tut
as an exponent of our discernment,
sagacity and expanded judgment in
dealing with the obstr use. question of
supply and demand.
I begin to think we Tar Heels are
as changeable as this weather. We
have change on the brain. It has
become epidemic. Our heart throbs
come welling up from our m'most
recesses panting for change of diet,
' change of air, change of scenery
change of climate and pocket change
Last fall an attack of political
chaue permeated every nook and
corner of our governmental anatomy
and benold! that change hath
changed or abolished almost all
things. If ta premeditated Thanks-
giying day is annulled, Stanly tur

Prtterson.'Wiley Wedding.
Yesterday was a cloudy, raw daj
and in the afternoon snow began
to fall, which kept np to past the
hour set for the mairiage to come off
at Sheltcn Memorial church, but
large crowd was present to witness
the ceremony.
The contracting parties were Mr.
Edwin Milas Patterson, a popular
conductor of the Southern Railway,
and Miss Cadie Janette Wiley, -only
daughter of Mrs. M J Wilej.
The handsome church had been
neatly decorated. . On the pulpit
platform were plants and flowers
and shaded lamps. The platform
was also tastily covered with white
cottons, and the step leading to the
platform was covered with the same
material. .
The bridal party reached the ves
tibule of the church on the minu'e.
8;30 o'clock, and ai the organ, pre'
sided over by Mr. E L Keesler, of
Concoid, N. C, sout-ded Mendels
shon's wedding march, came in, in
the following order :
First, the usher?, Messrs. C W
Sublett, George Harvey, Harry Pier
son and Mortimer White, who
marched do-vn to the alter by the
right and left ais'ee.
Then came the groom down the
ight aisle and his best man, Mr.
Clarence Iyans of Chorlotte, N. C,
down teeltftailse.
Down the center aisle came the
ridearxin arm with Miss Delia
Man 4 Chiem of Lynchburg, the
maid of honor. . She wore in a most
J3eceffiing manner a gown of white
silk, en trame, tnmma wilu riboon
and lace. The conventional veil
fell gracefully from a coronet of
orange blossoms fastened with a
diamond ornament. She carried a
lovely bouquet of bride's roses.
The maid of honor wore white or
gandie, trimmed with lace and rib
bon, and carried a bouquet . of
roses.
On reaching the alter, the bride
and groom met and walked upon
the platform, fo!!ow3d by the best
mm and maid o' honor and the
ushers, who formtd a ha'f circle
around the bride -and groom.
Here thej were met by Rev. W T
Doggctt, who in a most impressive
manner made two loving hearts one.
The bride and groom during prayer
knelt upon hassocks which had been
placed upon the platform.
The ceremony over, the wedding
party left the church in reverse ors
der, while the, organ pealed forth
Lohengrin's march.
The leception which followed at
the home of the bride's mother on
Church street was a grand affiir. It
wa3 a real old Virginia wedding sup
per. The table was handsomely set
in the dinning hall, and fairly
groaned under the weigh that lay
upon it. There were twelve large
cak-s of different kinds, the bride's
cake occupying the centre; frui s
candies, nuis, chocelate, tea, coffee,
hams, seven turkeys, wines, jellies,
etc. Theie were a number of ia
vited guests, ana all enjoyed them--elves.
When time came to leave
the bride and groom stood at the
centre door and received congratu
lations and best wishes of their
company.
. There was a large nuaber of
presents, and all of them useful and
serviceable.
The brtde is a most estimible
young woman, aud has a large num
ber of young friends in Neapolis,
and other places, both in Virginia
and North Carolina.
The groom is a conductor on the
Southern railroad, id a native of
Concord, N. and is greatly loved
by the railroad employes and has a
large circle of friends in Neapolis.

Wants to know th truth, the whole truth, and
nothing but the truth. And be wants that
truth boiled down.
He has no time to waste In skimming about
the edges of a subject, he wants to ret at the
lst of the whole matter, an4 dor not can
for a hundred paces of opinions If he can get
It all In hundred lines of solid facts.
That ts to say he wants the Encyclopaedia
Britannic, for no other work will so
completely meet the busy man's needs. It
has justly been called "the knowledge of the
whole world compressed Into five feet of
book shelf."
Another Characteristic
Of the business man Is tha be has an eye a
the dollars. If his good Judgment enables
Mm to detect the actual merit of a project
before his neighbors get into line he "gets
In on the bottom floor, while his less shrewd
neighbor waits until alt the world wants H
and then he finds " the slocks have gone up.
It Is this characteristic of Carolina business
men that is leading them so generally to
procure th Encyclopedia Britannica while !t
may be had at introductory rates. A thorough
business mai sees how the EHtannica
publishers can afford to permit a great paper
like The Charlotte Observer,
offer their up-to-date edition at Introductory
prices for a short time u il the public
generally has become familiar with Its
surpassing merits. Then all will want It.
and they will have to pay th publishers'
regular price ; while the man who Was shrewd
enough to purchase during the Introductory
period has saved Just $i,co per volum oa
the price ef the work.
