How time does fly! It seems but
while since we, sitting at tbi yery
place, wrote some parting re
"about spent, never to return. "
" There is a sadness about the part
ingyear. Why should we jubilate
over its death? If it was bad with
yoo why should you not wish to
change the bad to good before the
year dies; if ii was good with you
why should you not desire it to re

the good better and accomplish more,

qoajntance foceyer if he proves at
all endurable. Wby then glory over

We know what 1895 is many
haye prospered ; many haye suffered,
" but thate is not one who can 6ay
that it could not have been worse,

many a blessing and show him many

With ub as a town and . county,
blessings have been showered npon
the people as never before. The
county people have been happy, or
ought to have been, with peace,
plenty and health ; in Concord evi
deoaes of growth and improvements
haye multiplied as the days went by.
The health has been better than
common. And right here some of
ub pause as the thought comes with
its burden of sadness, but not with
out submission, that there is a miss

be hard to understand why the All

it were, and transplanted it in a
dime into which our eyes refuse to
Bee or which our minds fail to un

we had at the beginning of 1894.

Representative Rhuford, of North

which it is safe to eay new will
never be passed. It provides for

nice, bright young man to write
their letters, mail their books and
seed, yisit the departments and make
himself generally useful and agrees
able. Then, too, the 100 per
monh is simply sent direct to the
Congressmen, and even if his clerk
is sick for several months at home
the pay must go on. The Congress
man cau't help it; the Sergcant-at

to him. So it is generally conceded
that so long as this measure of re
form is left to Congress it will stand

The modern idea of teaching
school and governing it entirely by
"moral suasion" got a dull and sick
ening blow in a school on Long Is

notions in school teaching. A young
American cocked his heels upon the
desk and proceeded to be comfort

about the biggest fool notion we
have ever heard of is the effort to

If Butler should be successful the
State would not only be a big loser,
but priyate stockholders also, where
as the Southern Railway people
would probably be better off in the
long run than they are now, fcr if

that he considered the ship more ap.

-A Devers was killed and Mrs. T J
West burned to death by a mob in
this, Marion county, last night.
A few months aao T J West was
killed by Will . Devers. The men
met at the house of Beaver Green.
Devers was accused of intimacy
"with Mrs. West. West d?ew rt pistol
to fire at Dovers bnt it. would not
work and before he could shoct De
vers had killed him.
Since the death of ber husband
Mrs. Weest and Divers have been
living together- The community
was outraged b this state of affairs
and especially bo that Mrs. West's
little child was an unwilling witness
to ber mother's conduct.
Saturday night the mob was de
termined to go to the " house where
the couple lived and chastise Des
vers. 1 hey had previously warned
tbe couple to leave tbe country.
The leader of the mob called for
Devers. He did not come out. Mrs
W8t, fe ling he was the object of
the rcob, Tattempted to leav?
the place with her child. A half
dozen rifle shots wore fired at her
and she ran into the house again.
The mob. then set fire to the
building and waited for 'Devers to
appear. Yhea the roof was falling
in he ran out, his clothing on fire,
.and attemoted to conceal himself
behind a haystack. The mob fired
on him and be fell dead before he
had gone more than tec paces from
Wb place of hiding.
As the house fell the body of Mrs,
West was seen lying on ihe floor.

the mob departed.

place took Mrs. West's little child,
who was so excited that she could
tell little or nothing of the occur
An inquest was heid here today
but no evidence was given that
would disclose the identity of any
of the perpetrators of the crime.
Devers came here a year ago from
Knoxville, Tenn. Notwithstand the
fact that he had a wife and children
he became deeply enamored of Mrs,
West, and it was on account of his
attentions to that woinnn that West
applied for divorce. The suit was

fo lowing verdict:
"That Charles Poe and other
miners came to their death by tn
explosion :n the . umnock coal
mine, December 19th," 1895, by ex
plosion of gas, the cause of said ex
plosion being to u unknown, it be
ing shown to us that the mine was
in better condition than usual and
was well ventilated."
Closing its account the Record
"It is said that twentyseight wid
ows and over one hundred father

this sad catastrophe. And not only
are their hearts grief-stricken at the
loss of their loved one, but with

them in the face. They were en

bands and fathers for their daily
bread, and now their only earthly
support is gone. Unlesc timely re
lief is afforded them, tbeir lot will
be hard indeed. In order to illus
trate their pitiable condition, one
case was cited. It is that of Mrs.
Michael Bently, an English woman,
whose husband and only son were
both killed, leaving her with a
seven-year-old daughter aloue, far
from her native home, without any
relative whatever to comfort or to
support her- This family had ar
