" WHICH It) THE EIGHTH COMMAND-
The Standard is not near so good
a theologian as are some other Jay-
men in this section. It will stand
corrected any time when proof is
given, bat it must protest against
the correction and the waygiyen,
by one who is so ignorant as not to
pay for his subscription for four
years and then believe the editor
. able to live on promises of wood that
The Standard referred, for prayer
f al consideration, the Eighth Com
mandment Thon 6 halt not bear
false witness against thy neighbor
to the authoress of a mean and
slanderous article about this section
of the moral vineyard, an article
against which every patriotic and
truth-loving citizen must protest
silently, if not publklv. It is grati
fying that allourpeople, who fear
and love God, condemn the spirit
that prompted the writing of those
ai tides and know the contents to be
a concoction of, lies, except this
vzod promising subscriber.
It is amusing, however, to know
that seme very wellt informed men,
on other subjects, did not know that
the "Ten WorJs,"oi Ten Command
ments, are the same in meaning the
world over but that the numbering
' f them has been different for years.
One part of the .Christian church
makes the 1st and 2nd command
ment oat of what another part of
the Christian church makes the 1st;
ad the former the tent'i out of
.4whaiihe latter makes the 9th and
Those who have been greatly
..J amused at what they considered the
Standard's "slip up" will find our
use of "Thou shalt not bear false
witness etc" as the eighth command
ment to be correct, by reference to
the Hebrew Bible; and if they can't
read Hebrew, their pastors can. The
English translation of the Bible is
such that either system of number
ing can be maintained,
Tha number division of the com
mandmehtB precipitated a contro
versy way back before Reformation
' days ; and, if the decalogue is obs
served by men and women as it
should be, all will be well, be the
; division as it may. Sinners cannot
themselves from the penal
ties of violation of the commands
jpent;. because they did not under
stand the numbering of them as did
other people.. The whole law is
If we had no other reason for the
cambering we nsed, we could not
feel lonesome because of the fact
that two-thirdB of the Christians in
the world adopt that system that
makes "Thou shalt not bear false
witness etc" the eighth command
ment; and 53,000,000 Protestant
communicants, a majority of such in
the world, observe the division that
make it the eighth commandment.
But if there be further conten
tion about the matter and they still
insist our eighth is the ninth, we
accept their eighth and declare
that it is not Christ-like and just to
steal the good name, peace and hap
jrinesa of our people and substitute
otnera for them in a section . of
country that haa Hffe ignorance,
more suffering and ' ten thousand
times more vice than can be found
in this section of the South.

COIN'M FINANCIAL, SCHOOL.
The Louisville Courier Journal in
writing about the pamphlet, called
"Coin's Financial School," says this:
"The man who devotes " his dayB
and nights to the study of this
book will accumulate a larger stock
of ignorance and misinformation
than is procurable in any other way,
eyen by reading tne Arabian Mights
and believing it all. Compared with
the 'Financial School,' Baron Muni
chausen's airy reminiBcenses are a
study in systematic theology.
The Standard has not had the op
portunity of reading this book,which
has already reached the enormous
sale of 500,000 copies and the pres
ent demands are now greater than
can be promptly met.
Parties .that have read it and
spoken complimentary of it even
extravagant in praise of it in our
presence, were those who know no
more ahout the financial problem
than we do.
That is one thing we know next
to nothing about, and in this pre
dicament we have the company of
about 1,648,267 North Carolinians,
more or lees.'
The condition now is nnenyiable;
and, if the effects of studying this
new excitment be what the Courier
Journal declares, our condition
would be deplorable in the extreme.
Hence the delay.
But here comes the Raleigh
News & Observer, whichjdeclares the
Courier-Journal "Extreme as usual"
and says "the main statistics, relied
upon in Coin, have not been dis
puted." See how the doctors differ !
Its value, however, may ba ques
tionable from the fact that its great
est friends are those who believe and
advocate nothing more than a year
at a time, and then howl about
something just as contrary as is
There is some truth iu it, no
doubt ; there is a little particle of
truth in most any writing, even an
atom in those articles to "Over Sea

A Most Awful Affair at Smith's Ford.
One night a party of white boys
about four in number were angling
in Rocky river, on the western bank
somewhere between Garmond's and
Turner's mills. Discovering that
four colored bors were fishing on
the same bank, at a short distance,
they determined to give the dusky
gentry a surprise. Accordingly,
they filled hats and pockets with
small stones, and, -with noiseless
tread, proceeeded to where the party
was stationed ; on reaching which
they threw their missiles with great
rapidity, thereby frightening away
he unsuspecting blacks,one of whom
sustained several painful bruises
about the head. Halting where
stones were in easy profusion, the
fugitives soon unanimously resolved
to retaliate. The whites were giv
ing vent to their mirth in prolonged
guffaws, and were congratulating
themselves as being unspeakable
"busters," when, suddenly, they
were furiously assailed by the enemy
and driven, routed, from the strong
hold. The fugitive whites fled in
rank disorder to a protected spot,
to rest themselves and mature plans
for a second escapade on their part.
Assuming a very warlike 'attitude,
each armed himself with the ever
futile stones, and rushed oa to the
blacks, ponring volley after volley
into their lines, until the missiles
were exhausted, then the aggressive
party retreated tumultuously, and
after some deliberation decided to
cease hostilities and go home. To
doco, cne had to cross the riyer.
Being apprehensive for his own
safety, he prevailed on the others to
accompany him in a boat and see
him safe on the opposite bank. The
stream was crossed without a single
presentiment of danger, but just as
the boat touched the.bank, two col"
ored personages appeared with the
avowed purpose of revenge. They
were provided with a lioeral supply
of fragmentary rocks and a fierce
looking cudgel for each. Uttering
a savage execration by way of in
troduction, one of them ominously
vociferated: "You rascals hev ben
rockin' us, now we's got you." And
with a flourishing grin he reiterated,
"We's got you."
Instinctiyely, the youth in the
front part of the boat gaye it a
vigorous push from the tank; ob
serving which motion, the negroes
began hurling their rocks at the oc
cupants of the boat, who prostrated
themselves and were piotected by
the sides of the vessel. When about
mid-stream one oi the youths be
coming desperate, threw himself
into th s water and swam for the
shore, without receiving any injuries
except the sad loss of a shoe. Reach
ing the bank, he did not tarry long
to ruminate on the sad vicissitudes
of terrestrial life, but hastily loco-
nioted toward home, sweet homo.

clung to the boat as a forlorn hope,

A Touching Might.
In the eastern part of North Caro
lina a nan had a fine etock farm.
But a few weeks ago a fire broke ont
in the barn and burned not only the
building and the hay, bnt most of
the animals also. After the fire the
owner walked oyer the ruins. It
was a ead sight to see th-' charred
bodies of his flue Jersey cows and his
high spirited horses. But at tbe
end of the barn he saw a sight which
touched him more than the rest,
Tbtre sat an old black hen. He
wondered that she did not move her
head to lool at him as he came near
but he thought she must be asleep,
He poked her with his cane, and to
his surprise the wing he touched
fell into ashes'. Then he knew she
hau been burned to death. But out
from under ter wing came a faint
peep, and pushing her aside with his
cane the man found what do you
think ? ten liva yellow chickens.
The poor hen bad eacrificsd her own
