mr, munroe LiinKer, a rmpectd 1
citizen of No. 10 township, this
county, was seriously shocked by
lightning during an electrical Etorm
last Friday evening. He is about
all right now except an occasional
twitching of the mufcles and pros
tration of his nerves. He is about
50 years old.
Ephraim Means, a 12yearold
negro boy, of No. 10 township, while
playing with a mate over in Meck
lenburg county some time ago,
threw a rock at him, the rock strik -ing
the little negro on the haad,
from the effects of which the little
fellow has since died. Eph. is now

The Veterans Tomorrow
It was very little information we
could get today in regard to the
Confederate Veterans reunion and
picnic, which is to take place to
morrow at the fair grounds. Many
of the old soldiers are yery much
and justly disgruntled over the turn
of affairs on the day set apart for
their gala day. It is generally un
derstood, however, that a big dinner
will take place between 12 and 1
o'clock, to which all good soldiers,
soldiers' wives and children of sol
diers are invited to attend and bring
with them welKfilled basket?.
About the Oxford Asylum.
Supt. Lawrence, in a recent speech
about the Oxford asylum, had these
words to use: "The number of
children there at present is 200, 103
girls and 97 boys. These are fed,
clothed, educated and learned to
work, the total cost of maintenance
being about ?13,000 a year. Of
this amount the State giyes $10,000,
the Grand Lodge of Masons $3,500,
and the remainder is derived from
individual donations and such tours
as are now being made. Since the
establishment of the asylum in 1872
the number of children enrolled has
been 1482, and of them all not a sin
gle one, so far as known, has ever
worn thestripea of a convict "

Bad Case in Statesvllle.
A Statesvllle correspondent of the
Charlotte Observer says tnis :
Court has been engaged all the
afternoon with an incest case. G W
Mullis, apparently 55 or 60 years of
age, the father, and Rebecca Mullis,
aged 21 or 21, the daughter, both
hailing from Eagle Mills township.
It seems Mullis prosecuted some
neighbors for trespass and won the
suit at the last term of court, and
now comes what seems to be a cross
fire. The defendants are both pale,
thin, care-worn respectable looking
people, and any one would think
while looking at them sitting side by
side in the bar, whispering to each
other occasionally, that the awful
crime with which they are charged
was yery far from their hearts.

A 4 -year old daughter of Mr.
Milton Rogers, of No. 4, had a very
narrow escape Saturday. The little
girl got hold of a vial of carbolic
acid and swallowed something like
a spoonfull. Its screams attiacted
tbe family and what had taken place
was soon discovered. Dr. Lafferty
was called in and removed the bad
drug. The child's mouth and
throat were badly burned. The
child is safe unless inflamation
