DRY & WAD3WORTH.
Dry & Wadsworth, the leadiDg
furniture men of this section of the
State, are successors to the firm of
Cannons, Fetzer & Bell, and have,
for the past fourteen months, ac
commodated an immense trade in
this city, county and neighboring
counties. They have received orders
from the most remote regions of the
State for furniture, so well is their
business known and advertised.
They carry a S12.000 stock, and do
business to the tune of S35 000 per
annum. They also handle under
takers' supp ies in large quantities,
from the cheapest plain coffin to
the most elaborate steel and metal
lic caetets. Messr?. A E Lentz and
V L Bell are up-to date in the em
balming department and are known
to an appreciative public for their
promptness and efficiency when
called upon. The firm is enjoying
a specially favored custom, which
is due to the manner in which the
busings of the concern is conducted.
They are obliging to their install
ment patrons also, who would be
deprived of many servicable pieces
of furniture were it not for the easy
terms which this firm allows them.
Their business is of great propor
tions and is one of the most neces
sary establishments Concord has.

A, L. SAPPEXFIELD
If there is anybody in town who
don't know and like "Doc" Sappen-
field he must haye come in on the
last train, for he has been doing
business at the "same old stand" for
fourteen jears, and a thriving busS

bottom figures. Mr. Strhker is an
oUtimer here and his friends are

Tne Salisbury World contains the
following account of a bold robbery
in that place Thursday evening:
One of the boldest robberies that
has ever occurred here, happened
yesterday evening about 6:30 o'clock.
Old man Zake Bro vri, who runs
a restaurant on Council street, went
to Moyle's bar at about the hour
mentioned and got a drink. He
took the money m payment for it
from a purse and placed the puree
in bio upper coat pocket.
Tom Shedreck, one of the most
dangerous negroes in the community,
watched him and followed him out
of the ba. When Brown had
reached tbe corner of Main and
Council streets, in front of G W
Scoti's, Shedreck stepped up behind
him, and catching him m the throat,
brought him to his knees. In an
instant Shedreck. had run his bands
