encouraged with the new prospect,
provided the citizens along; the line
will give the matter Buch encour

noticed from our advertising col

of the stockholders of the Concord
Southern Railroad Company called
tor the 29th, when it is expected
that matters will take a more defi
nite shape, and that-we can then
give more facts to the public.
The parties who are leading in
this movement, and who have been
here several times, seem to be thor-!
oughly in earnest, and it therefore
stands all parties in hand, who are
in favor of the movement along
the line, to put their shoulders 10

Should this road be built, it
would not be only of great service to
our town, but would be the means
of distributing money all along the
line from Aberden to Concord, as
the management assures us that it is
their intention and wish to give
preference along the line not only. to
local labor, but also to local ma

Under False Preieuse.
Last week a young man giving
his name as S P Fink called at the
shoeshop of Mr. J 0 Honeycutt, on
West Depot street, and gave an order
for a pair of shoes. When he had
obtained the shoes, he gave Mr.
Honeycutt an order on Superintend
ent Wilson, of the Cabarrus mill,
for $2, claiming that he was a mill
operative. Mr. Honeycutt presented
the order to Mr. Wilson, who re
fused to pay it, because Fink was an
unknown person to him. Saturday
Fink was caught by an officer aLd
in some way tffected a compromise.

B Blume were held in the Lutheran

to the high esteem in which the de
ceased was held and the deep sym
pathy felt for the bereaved. Mr,
Blume was an exemplary young
man and gave promise of great good
in leading a life of quiet purity and
model loveliness, but was called
away from loving ones in compara
tive youth, being 22 years, 10
months and 23 days old. He had
chosen for a life companion Miss
Ella Honeycutt, with whom he had
lived in domestic bliss less than two
years, and leave her and his infant
child together with other most enn
His remains were laid to rest in
the city cemetery. As has already
been noted, Mr. Blume was visiting
his grandfather, Esq. M A Ludwig,
when he took typhoid fever and
never again saw his home.
Miss Carrie L Walter, much
against her wn inclination, dropped
her efficient labors a week ago and
took her bed. For some days no
thought of danger was apprehended,
but symptoms late in the week told
of approaching dissolution and she
passed into the eternal sphere Saturn
day night at 12 10 o'clock. She
was a member of the German Re
formed chuich at Mt. Gilead and
her mortal remains were taken there
for interment. The funeral ser
vices were conducted by Rev. H A
Miss Carrie was intent on render
ing the greatest service to her par
ents ana the family and was a lover
of church, and especially devoted to
Sunday school work. So much did
her mind dwell on things sacred
that it was a source of Christian joy
to hear her sing praises to our Sa
viour and rejoice in his presence, to
her so vivid and so comforting.
Miss Carrie was just entering into
the stage of womanly maturity, and
the cutting off of a life so Christ-,
like seeina a strange providence.
She was 21 years, 3 months and 15
days of age, full of hope, sprighU
liness and good cheer. She will be
greatly missed, but her virtues in
life and her triumphs in death will
be a source of comfort long af er
the poignancy of grief is forgotten.

enter the week's duties with a new
