The rich will exchange gifts and
in some instances the poor will be

should be happy days to all will pass
so swiftly by thai we will not haye
time to stop and think before Jani

the beginning of a new year.
In many important aspects 1895

puzzling events : War rumors, riots,
murder, suicide and a restless and
uneasy spirit , seems to exist every
where. The unprecedented revolu
tion in political sentiments in our
country, and now the pending crisis
between us and Great Bnttain all
combine to emphasize the statement
that there is evidenly a spirit of dis
trust and dissatisfaction that ia as
wide as the universe and as deep
seated as human prejudice, enyy and
Again: January 1st, 1896, will

As I write the names of several
prominent North Carolinians', who
for years and yeais have stood at the
very head of our leading financiers,
recur to my memory, with the ead
association of the fact that one uns
wise investment swept awa-y the ac
cumulations of a busy lifetime and
these men whose fayor and friends
ship were courted by people gener
ally and who were hell up to the
young as examplars of what thrift,
energy and enterprise would accom
plish, are now seldom thought of
and less frequently referred to in
public. I know men whom Brad
street rated a year ago at five hundred
thousand dollars, whom he now
rates as unworthy of credit.
But there is another side to the
picture, there have b:en colossal for
tunes made. Many who began 1895
straggling against tide, with an im
penetrable cloud overhanging their
future, haye with an indomitable
will and a determination that
nast experience rise rapidly in the
ladder of success, but for iad
meats, commercial agencies, etc.
I have seen comparatively few
clebta collected by judgement. In
most cases forbearance and a little
timely aid will obtain money from a
debtor, where proaecution and perse
cution would so cripple him that
the collection would be impossible.
At the cose of the year 1895 let
there go up from eyery heart an
anthem of praise and thanksgiving
for blessings received and enjoyed,
and petitions for mer:? in behalf of
tne unfortunate and distressed.

It is seldom one sees a wagon
running alorg the public rosd
without a horse or mule attached,
but Fiiday afternoon Mr. James
Blackwelder was going down the
big hill at Mr. R A Brown's on
South Main street, when his horse
became unhitched, waked out the
shafts and let the wagon have a run
all by itself. No one was hurt and
no serious damage done.

The inroads of measles upon the
