There is no pleasure in printing
the news of the horrible crime that
was committed in Cabarrus county
last Friday night. The 'black fiend,
having assaulted a def endless woman
in her own home in the dark of
midnight and committed .his foul
deed, now lies behind the bars in the
county jail. Our people are law
abiding, eyen under gross insults
from foreigners as has been recently
demonstrated. The law will be al
lowed to take its course. But where
are the people who would wait the
glow proceES of the law, were such
a deed to be committed several times
in the same section, as has been the
case in other sections of the South ?
The great North itself has its
lynching bees, and subjected to Buch
insults and crimes as occur in the
South she would rse up aDd Burn

Mrs. Amelie Kive3 Chandler hae
dropped the last name, by virtue of a
"Incompatibility" was the wedge
that broke the marriage yews of
Amelie Eives and John Armstrong
Chandler. She applied and he made
no resistance. "Incompatibility"
that big word comes in and breakr
marital vows, and adds two more ti
the divorced columns, one that it
too large now or indicates that there
are too many rushings in where tn.
gels fear to tread.
Amelie Eives' alpha and omega,
eo far as the public is concerned,
are sensations. She suddenly be"
came famous about eleven years ago
when she thrust upon the public t
'feverish volume," which she was
pleased to call "The Quick or the
Dead." Of it a critic said :
"The book was well written, f airlv
plotted, but succeeded rather for the
flavor of fever in it than o! any merit
whether of the story itself or the
atyle of the English employed in
telling it. Altogether, it was not of
the sort a cold or careful judge
would describe as "healthful litera
She's made several attempts since
at noyel writing, but her efforts
never produced the excitement and
attention as did "The Quick or the
Dead." Her first effort reached, at
one bound, the zenith of her career
as an authoress.
John Armstrong Chandler is said
to be 35 years of age, large, athletic,
frank, intelligent, handsome, and
wealthy and yet the record says in

' UTERATCRE AXD MATRIMONY.
Eight on the heels of the an.
nonncement of the marital infelici
ties of Amelie Kives-Chandler, many
newspaper wricers are giving long
dissertations on the folly of
authoresses in taking upon them
selves matrimonial vows. To these
- writers there seems a wide cashm be
tween literature and conjugality, so
far as the females are concerned.
But these two women, among the
many female writers of note, can
hardly establish beyond question the
txistence of "incompatibility" in
marriages where the women are
writers of literature. Domestic dis
agreements occur in all clatscs, and
the records can not show more cases
of "incompatibility" between mar
ried literary women and their bus
bands than exists between men and
their wives, who have never written
or read a "Quick or the Dead."
; If these articles continue, the ef
- feet upon the matrimonial alliances

the bachelor; or else, rather than be
literary and not marry or marry and

That rope to a students neck at
Butler University is pretty exciting.
It occurred way up yonder where
they don't have lynchings and from
a land of spotlessness. To us it
seems pretty severe, but then we can
not comprehend all the ways people
in those glorious lands haye of being
funny. That's the way they play
in Northern schools.
The sensation in Denver, Col., is
a "Messiah" who goes by the tn
poetic name of Schlatter. He drifted
there from New Mexico, and is a
man of comaanding presence, whose
long, flowing hair, parted in the
middle, and serious countenance
would attract attention anywhere.
He doesn't preach, but has the repu
tation of performing multitudinous
and miraculous cures by . blessing.
Thousands of people flock to him
to be cured, and they seem to have
faith in him.
Now that the organization has
reached its zenith in strength and
influence and is rapidly going down
the hill on the other side, it might,
with truth, be said that the Farm
ers Alliance "Our noble Ordei"
did not Iiyeaud flourish and begin
its now rapid decay without the
accomplishment of one thing:, it
knocked sillyj at one blow, the Jute
Bagg'ng TruEt; and the second blow
laid it out the deadest corpse you
eyer saw. Had the noble order
stopped there or even before its
schooling of large numbers made it
possible to have North Carolina
represented in the United States
Senate by the traitorous Butler, ail
would be forgiven. "
Te Chicago negro preacher who
advised the colored people of the
South to ply the torch to avenge the
lynching of negroes, gave , some very
unhealthy advice, and took , mighty
good care to give it for a loDg taw.
He would get his folks in trouble
while he-would be safaout of harm's
way. He might make himself very
nsef nl to his Deode if instead ol giv
ing such foolish advice he ..came
South and started a crusade against
the Crimea. which provoke lynching.
Conflicting influences are always
at or it for the control of the cotton
market." They are seen now engaged
in a mighty struggle. There are the
speculators-the bears trying to de press
prices, and the bulls trying to
raise them. The bulls may want
prices higher in order that they may
unload contracts at a profit, while
the bearers may want them lower in
order that they may buy in antici
pation of a raise. Thus the bull of
today may be the bear of tomorrow,
and yice versa. The manufacturer
is necessarily always a bear, as he
wants to buy for consumption as
cheaply as possible. On the bull
side is always arrayed the producer
and with him the great public,
which wants to see cotton high even
though it may have to pay higher
for cotton goods. At the present
time the bulls have the better of the
argument, and . it looks as if the
higher prices will be permanent. It
is well, in this connection, to look
the facts in the face and to realize
that there has been an adyance in
prices not because the speculators
willed it so but because the cotton
crop is universally believed to be a
Bhort one. If this opinion is conr
firmed, prices may be expected to
continue higd; if it should be nega
tived by the facts, a decline may be
looked tor. But the law of supply
and demand is regulating prices, as
it always does. From the advance
which set in some weeks ago and is
still maintained it ought to be ap
parent to anybody that the silver
question has nothing to do with the
matter. The same coinage laws
exist now that did last year when
cotton was 5 cents a pound. States
HOLD VOI R OITOX.
We believe it is now safe to advise
the farmers in the cotton belt to
hold their cotton as long as possible.
If you must sell, then put it on the
m rket slowly a little at the time.
Such adyice has not always been
safe, and we have hesitated, but
thiai ii is now settled that the crop
will not be over 6,000,000 bales,
probably less, and the demand will
be for eight or cine million bales.
The most liberal government and ex
pert reports show that the condition
is not above 65, and frosts and
storms may socn bring it below that
estimate. Progressive Farmer.
Thank the Good Lord! At last!
Shake, old boy, shake. In these
days when eyes are beginning to be
opened, it is the last thing on earth
to expect an old hardshell to come
out and declare a thing against
which he has howled . for months.
Supply demand, eh ! The supply
is six millions bales; the demand is
for eight or nine millions. Now
that the Progressive Farmer admits
that supply and demand regulate
prices, there will be no future
trouble on this score.

Typhoid fever preyails "to an
alarming extent," as the local news
papers say, in the city of Washing,

with October 5 th there were sixty
six deaths from this cause, and on

pressed the opinion that there were
at that time ''between 400 and 600
cases" of the fever in the city.

Mrs Armelia E arr, writing to
the editor of the Ladies' home Jour

will preach the gospel, and not
politics, prohibition, sanitary science.
Ministers who think to draw people
by preaching everything but the
gospel, make a great mistake. There
is nothing that draws like this old
fashioned gospel. People may be
temporarily attracted by these' out
side subjects, but many more are
grieved ard disappointed- - It is al
ways safe to preach the preaching
that is spiritual and old-f ashiaed. U
is the only; thing that satisfies."

Mrs, Amelia K'ves Chanler was

fifteen miles from Charlottesville,
and questioned as to the cause which
led her to secure a divorce from J no.

was really nothing to say beyond
what had already appeared in the
"Ihe public," Mrs Chanler
laughingly said, "will be grievously

"I must decline to answer," said
Mrs, Chanler. "I will not say

In reply to another question, Mrs
Chanler Baid that it was some time
ago that the divorce was granted and
that Mr. Chanler has been repre
sented at the trial.
"But," she added, "there was
really no defense he could make.
Later on she said :
"Mr. Chanler and I are the best
of friends, but we have seen very
little of each other for years. He
owns the place adjoining Castle Hill
and spends a great deal of time on
it, but I have never lived there."
Mrs Chanler said she had no
plans for the future.
"Just now I am living at Castle
Hill, riding and driving and enjoy
ing the country," she concluded.
Mrs. Cnanler said she did' Lot
know where Mr. Chanler was, but
