THIRTEEN YEARS SILENCE,
Mr. Odell Loat Speech nnd Hearing
From the ElTcets of Disease IS e Re
J'frninad RothJ. Suddenly Yesterday
About three weeks ago a young
uian applied at Oates' Cotton Mill
for work. He made his request
known in writing, as he was unable
either to speak or hear. He was put
on Mght work, and was regarded by
those working near him as he silent
member. He took a room at one of
the factory houses on Sixth street
nd wns known to all in that row of
fiats as the mute. He w8 in the
habit of trading at Alexander's store
j and when he went there for anything
failing to make tbem understand on
Lis hands, he always wrote.
Yesterday about 2 o'clock he
complained of headache, and laj
down to take a nap. He dreamed
that he was no longer deaf and
dumb but could hear and speak,
and that be was at home talking' to
his mother. He awoke suddenly,
and t! e word ":other" was on his
lips. His dream had come trne In
tbe sleep his hearing and speech had
snddenlv come back to him, and he
ta'ked and could hear just the same
as other peoplp.
Overjoyed at the wondrous change
he ran to tell the neighbors. They
one and all looked upon him with
wonder and some could hardly be-
lieve that he was the same nun.
Later in the eveni ig tha Obaerm
hunted the young man np. He was
found sitting on the porch of his
boarding house reading. He gave
his same as N. C. Odell. He is from
Chicago, where - his mother r.- si.Ies
still. Thirteen years ago he had
scarlet fever, followed by smallpox.
Up to that time his hearing and
speech were, as far as he knew, per-
ftct. He suddenly lost both, and
for thirteen years ha8 neither heard
nor spoken. For the past eix months
he has been;able to wbtsper.Mf any
one came very near to mm. lie jb
now 26 vears of age. He went to
the mill yesterday shortly after rev
gaining speech aud hearing, but the
noise was so painful that he had to
leave. He complainedjn the after
noon of a roaring in his head, Mr,
Odell cannot account for the won
derfnl recovery. He says he had
long ago given up all idea of ever
regaining his hearing and speech.
His yoice is soft and well modulated,
and one could not tell that there
had ever been anj thing wrong with
him. Charlotte Observer.

A REMEDY AGAINST FLIES.

"I neyer use window screens,"
said a .wise hourekeepf r the other

keep the flics in the house equally
as well as out"
"But I never see a fly in your

you manage it ? For my pari, I
must confess that, screens or no
screens, my summer means to me &
battle with the little pests."
"My remedy is a very simple one'
said thegood housekeeper, "and I
learned it years ago from my grand
mother, when I used to sit and watch
her putting bunches of lavender
flowers around to keep the flies
away. My method is simpler. I buy
five cents worth of oil of lavender at
the drug store and mix it with the
same quantity of water. Then I put
it in a common glass atomizer and
Vspray it around the rooms wherever
flies are apt to congregate, especially
in the dinning room, where I
sprinkle it plentifully over the table
linen. The odor is especially dis-
ageeable to flies, and they will never
venture in its neighborhood, though
to most people it has a peculiarly

irinm Springs and its Manager.
A reporter of the Standard, ttv
gether with several preachers, Rev.
J Q Wertz among them, and others,
several daya ago visited Barium
Springs, N. C. It was the first and
a surprise to the rt porter.
The manager of the Barium
Springs property, which consists ci
90 acres, is Mr. W M Dayvaulr,
father of the Messrs. Dayvaults, of
Concord. He is the cleverest and
the most jolly-spirited man this re
porter ever met To go to his loveb
ly country home, where everything
ia neatness, order and cheerfulness
(one of the niceBt country homes
eyer seen) and to remain there sev
eral weeks would be health-giving
even without the use of the water
Mr, Day ault is the youngest old
gentleman we haye ever seen, and
his great hospitality is not confined
to his neighborhood no man goes
there that does not- receive one of
those cordial welcomes that he can
Between Mr. Dayvault's home and
the Springs property is located the
Presbyterian Orphanage, of which
we speak elsewhere.
This spring was discovered about
1775, It was formerly known as
the 'Toison Spring," bo called un
der a mistaken idea of the early sec-
tiers, who, because cattle refused to
drink the water, were led to believe
that it was injurins. Experience
and Chemistry, however, have dis
proved and entirely reversed this
supposition, and the water is known
now to be a valuable remedy for
As calling it the "Poison Spring"
tended to create a prejudice against
the nse of the water the name has
been changed to the Barium Spring.
The spring is peculiarly situated,
being on the top of a rocky knoll,
about fifteen feet higher than a
brook over forty feet distant, and
eight to ten feet higher than eight
other springs around the base of the
knoll, and about one hundred feet
It has no visible outflow, and the
water remains at a constant level,
never freezes, never stagnates, and
it will keep pure and retain its cum
tive efficiency indefinitely.
Tbeae remarkable springs are well
known to the Indians, and their
waters were so highly esteemed by
them for their potent curative
properties that they made the lo
cality a regular rendezvous, as is
proven by tradition and by numerous
fyidences of their former occupation.
The other springs all contain vary
ing mineral ingredients, sulphur and
iron being the most prominent ele
ments in lh-m. The use of their
waters are free to visitors.
Mr. Dayvault keeps the spring
under lock, though eight other
springs are free and open. He is
just as proud and careful about this
mam spring as wonld some Concord
men be of a fine girl baby. He ib
kept busy looking after the property
and ev. ry morning he goes driving
into Troutman's, one and a halt
miles distant, to make shipments of
water. These go to all parts of tLe
Sonth, in sealed jugs.
You have no idea just what this
property is until you see it. The
ownership is in the heirs of Donald
McRee, of Wilmington, and could
not be purchased for $6,000.

A ''raihoad hog" the other day
piled the space next to him in a car
seat with hiB bundles, and when a
gentleman asked him if any one was
to occupy it repiied that the bundles
belonged to a man who was tempor
arily in the smoking car.
"All right," said the gentleman,
I will Bit in the seat till he come3,"
and he proceeded to remove the bun
Pretty soon the own r of the ban
dies ai rived at his d stination, and
he started to gather up his effects.
Bat the gentleman at once put a
veto on this, with tbe remark :
"You can't take these bundles;
you yourself said they belonged to a
man in the smoker."
The fellow got mad and abusive,
but the gentleman was inexorable.
Finally the conductor was called in,
who delivered his dictu-n as follows:
"If the bpndles are not claimed
by any one on the train, then by
coming around to the depot tomor
row and identifying them satiefac
toiily we will gije them to you."
The man's face was red with rafje
but he could do nothing. So, amid
the laughter of the passengers, be
rushed out of the car just as the
train was pulling out. And he
meekly came around .to the depot
for his bundles the next day.

It is tnly by degrees that we learn
the character of the new Justices of

there were three who cught'to be in

1. B R Edgerton, who plead
guilty of larceny at the term of the
Superior Court next preceding his
2. John W Smith, who had been
convicted in the United States Cir
cuit Court for abstracting a letter
addressed to other parties, from the
3. Wm. Garris, who has been con
victed of obtaining money or
properly by false pretences.
These are only three. Eow many
more are of the same character is
not yet known, but if there are as
many such fellows in all the other
