Never Thought Him Ureal. C.ttits.rtl Trunin. . We never thought Mr. I'l itt h;.rd u "great limn," do not yet so con sider him, but this is one Demo cratie paH-r that has always reeog lii.ed and appreciated his worth as u true, patriotic North Carolinian, fully believing in liupublicun prin ciples and ever faithful to the best interests of the State. We do not think the Democratic paicm of the State have said too much altout Mr. I'ritchard now that he is out of the Senate, or more than they grautcd U-fore his defeat. Murders Increasing. Sll. ll Star. From the report of Attorney (ieueral tiilmer it apK-ain that murder tire on the increase in North Carolina. After reading the State papers for the past year and noting the unusual minuter oi mur ders the public was fully prepared for this statement. The question of vital concern is "how shall the number lie d.-creiwcd t " Some go to the extent of arguing that the law passed ill ls'.KI dividing mur der into first and second degrees ought to lie repealed, but thi will hardly lie accomplished. The ten dency of the law is not in Unit di rection. Two Booms In North Carolina- NltMl Kulrrprl'M'. There are two quite picturesque presidential Ikmuiis ii launching in North Carolina. Kaeh is begin ning in a newspaper oflice. The Fail-hank boom in City and Hie Hearst boom in Kdenton. Fairbanks is a Republican I'uited State Senator from Indiana and is the man the anti R.ioscvelt Repub lican in the State have centered on to oppose Ihe I'rcsident with. The iiicu in charge of the movement are making frequent trip to Washing ton to confer with their caudidate, and it i given out that several other Fairbanks iiiiH-r will lie started at other place in North Carolina.

Klb. Iu a freny of mania Mrs. James Mrowlirnlge of t.uyauoga village. five miles from here, today killed ber daughter, aged -K and tier mother, aged no, and alter setting lire to the houx- in which the Uslies lay, deliberatelv entered it and perished iu the flames, Fxactlv how the women killed is not known. The first in tiiuatiou the Heights.! had of the tragedy was this afternoon, when Mrs. Strom bridge home was found to lie on fire, and immediately utter she was seeu to set fire to another house acrosM the street, iu which her daughter lived, and also to two barns iu which were IN head of! rattle and three horses. When party of men attempted to break oM-n the tiarn to release the am luals, .Mrs. .Mrowl.riilge, who was standing in front of her blaing home, brauuishing a revolver, tired at them reiM-atedlv. Several of the men mane a rtisti Hoping 10 close with the mad woman and disarm her, I nl she held them at bay with the revolvei. While tlu-v were h-sitating she suddenly cut her throat, filled a pail ot water ut the well, thrust a quantity of hay and straw into it, and placing the whole mass on her head, rushed into tin blaing house, in which her charred IkhIv and the IsHlicsof her dailgh Icr and mother were found alter the lire had burned itself out. The three women lived a hermit life, working on the farm like men and often wearing men's clothing. They are supixiscd to have la-en well to do. Mrs Strowhridge is be lieved to have gone suddenly mad. For several day she nppcai-ed to Is-acting strangely, but her method of life was hiicli that none of the ueighlHirs had any communication with her. A suit recently brought against Mrs. Strowbridge for wages may have aggravated lu-r trouble. SKINS IN THE WHITE HM.'5li. 1'rorn Over the State. i Three divorns were grafted in A LOU-UED PEOPLE.
