The liuniau lody I a machine.
Food ha for it purpose the devel
opment of energy, force or power
to enable the machine to do the
work necewinry for the existence
of the indwelling individual. A
simile often used is to likeu the
food to the fuel which ia necessary
to keep the fire for boiling the
water to make the steam in un en
gine. It nerves to illustrate the
condition a well a any. In order
to maintain the health of the body
the process of uutrilion must go on.
liy this is meant that the supply of
chemical constituents which com
pose the body must be kept at just
such an amount aud in just snch a
proportion, the one to the other.
The chcmisry of the human body
and of food is, indeed, an intricate
one, the discussion of which, how
ever profitable, would take us into
deep waters, leading out into un
known depth which even the wis
est have not fathomed. When the
many problems ure solved, doubt
less there will result uot only in
creased powers of the individual
but also increased length of life.
Kouglily speaking, the foods
which are suitable for the human
being are divided into three classes:
the starches which include bread
stuffs, potatoes, grains and sugars;
the nitrogenous foods, which in
clude meats, nuts aud some few
vegetables, such as beans and peas,
aud fats. It ho beeu proved that
man cau live boat on a diet which
is composed of a mixture of these
substances. If one were to eat only
tarchy food, such a bread and
most of the vegetables, there would
not lie enough nitrogenous food to

tion Powders are fed to horses
and mules, marked improvement
will be seen after the first few
doses. There is no doubt about it.
The Powders, acting directly on the
digestive organs, first thoroughly
cleanses the stomach and bowels,
correcting all disorders, and then
good healthy appetite comes nat
urally and surely. It is the most
powerful tonic and appetizer on
the market to-day, and when once
used horsemen will have no other.
Ashcraft's Powderi produce that
silky sheen of coat and hair so
admired by horse fanciers. The
Powders fatten but never bloat.
Always high grade and put ui

not be subject to colic or any dis

eupply the demand, or such a bulk
would have to lie eaten tbut it
would unbalance the system. (Sci
entists who have experimented say
that the proportion for tbe animal
system should lie i nine of fat,
twenty two of llesh forming sub
stances and sixty nino of starches
aud sugars. 1 be housekeeper dww
not stop to reason much about these
matter, but follows tradition in
regard to cookiug and adds the fats
of butter, bacon, pork or oil to en
rich tbe substances destitute of fat;
the bread is spread w ith butter, the
ham is filed with the eggs, and to
the hominy is joined the hucou. If
meat with its nitrogen is not plen
tiful, this is supplied by cheese or
peiut and beans.
1 he element which are to tie de
rived from the food must be, as ha
already been pointed out, in a cer
tain ratio to each other iu order to
supply the waste in the tissue.
An excess of meat will tax the or
gans to carry olf the surplus nitro
genous product; an excess of vege
table (the starches ami sugar
which come from a vegetable diet)
will leave a deficit in llesh-forming
food utiles takeu iu such large
amount as to dilute and overload
the stomach. Again, if excess of
fat be taken the fat is deposited in
the tissue and impairs the nse of
the muscles, eveu shortening life
when the depuxit is in tbe muscu
lar tissues of the hem t.
Mo, too, if the time of the meals
is uot properly regulated the health
may lie impaired. If t hey are in
freiiicnt, the hunger may cause the
taking of too much at a time, and
the stomach may thus become en
larged. It taken too often, the food
of the previous meal may still lie
in the stomach when the new rood
will mix with it and cause decom
position aud fermentation. Then,
too, tbe organ constantly employed
is like a Jaded or overdriven horse;
tired and worn out, it become un
able to perform its duties naturally,
the gland of the stomach being
unable to manufacture tbe digea-
live secretions fast enough and in
sufficient quantities to digest, the
WHY FOOD IM COOKKD.
The first use of cookiug Is to
make the sulistance cooked more
digestible. Tbe great distinction
between men and animals is that
mail must have hi food cooked.
Kven with the savage and barbar
ous tribes, cookiug is almost uni
versal. Cooking ulso develops
flavors aud creates a variety where
by tbe appetite is tempted. Tbe
higher the civilization the more
complex and extensive tbe meth
ods of preparation of foods.
In view of tbe recent scientific
discoveries ot germs and bacteria
which exist in all varieties of food,
the value of cooking is shown, for
It U by this means that the gernis
and poisons ran be destroyed. It
ia unsafe, especially in travelling,
to eat uncooked vegetables. Hul
ads often carry tbe germs of typhoid
or tbe eggs of parasite and should
be avoided unless one ia sure that
they have been most carefully
cleauaed for the table. The same
is true of fruit. Those which can
not have the outer skin removed
before being eateu should be either
cooked or to scrupulously washed
that one may be sure that they are
freed from all Imparities. The
heat of cooked foods promotes di
gestion. The different kinds of
rooking, the boiling and stewing,
baking, roasting and braising, fry
ing and broiling, each have differ'
ent objects ia view, and these
If the object is to rook and retain
, the flavor of nieats, the beat should
be great and its application imme
diate, or the juices aud Haver will
vanish ; the heat coagulate the
albumen and euranea the meat
with a crust through which these
cau uot escape. If tbe meat is old
and tough aod tbe object is to ex
tract tbe nutriment, leaving the
fibre unused, then the meat should
be placed in cold water aud the
beat applied gradually, the process
of cookiug being carried on slowly
and for a long time. Cooking ia a
1 promt which reuders mastication
I The way to escape dyM'wia is
,by constant and conscietitiouscliew
ling. N'o tough, fibrous substance
should enter the stomach. The
teeth are the sentinels w hich stand
on guard aud should be made to do
their duty. If it is uot possible to
masticate a substance thoroughly,
do not swallow it, for it will rciuaiu
in the stomach for hours, a foreign
body as irritating to the membrane
of the stomach as a speck in the
eye. Meat fibre, stringy and tough
lobster, the rubbery mass of au im
properly rooked Welsh rabbit, are
some of the commonest cause of
rank indigestion. If the stomach
is very strong, it may dispose of
these indigestible after a time, but
it powers are weakened una a
chronic dyspepsia will result.
Another reason for thorough mas
ticution is that starchy substances
uecd the saliva for their digestiou
and should not be sent dowu to the
stomach unless no prepared.
Iu the broadest acceptation of the
term, all drinkables, water, etc.,
coffee, beers, wines and liquors, are
clashed as foods. In a previous
article it has Is-en ixiinted out how
essential to life and well being is
pure drinking water. The rxteu-
tive use of tea and coffee has much
to do w ith the ill of tbe people.
Much indigestion and heart dis
turbance is brought about by their
habitual use. The effect of these
are what is known as cumulative.
A small amount taken day after
day and year after year may nut
show its deleterious effects imme
diately, but in the course of time
will result in tbe breaking dowu of
the individual. Aside from the
principles of temperance which are
involved, as a mutter of health it
is a great mistake to make use of
stimulants daily, for when the need
comes for them iu time of sick ueas,
they will uot have the same bene
ficial effect as upon one who has
not liceu in the habit of taking
them, aud often so much more is
needed to obtain the desired result
that the stomach, weakened by in
dulgence and disease, is unable to

These gentlemen, being the uncles
and nearest male protectors of Miss

drove to the home of Mrs. Archer,
where they spent the night. They
found Mrs. Archer and Mis White
iu great distress. This morning.
shortly after 0 o'clock, they went
to the home of Mr. Sberrill, who
bad seduced their uiece under
promise of marriage, and after
wards refused to man v her, and
conversed with him ou the porch.
They asked him to keep his prom
ise of marriage and he answered
that be would die fiist. They still
insisted that lie marry her, and he
started towards Mr. Chalmers
White in a threatening attitude.
Both the brothers retreated to the
end of the porch and told him to

At Mt. Vila, liowan county, at (i
o'clock this morning, Mr. Mussel I
Sberrill, aged uboiit 22 yeai-s, was
shot down and killed ou bis moth
er's front porch, by two brothers,
Thomas aud C halmers W bite, A
report of tbe tragedy was brought
here today by passengers coining
in on tbe Moorcsville tram. It
appears that the two brothers went
to the Sberrill home and called
Russell out, saying they wished to
speak with him. The latter was
accompanied by his mother. As
soon us Mr. Sberrill reached the
porch she saw there was going to
be trouble and she Ix-gan pleading
with tbe W bite brothers not to kill
her son, but her words were iu
vain. Each brother bad a pistol
and both licgan firing. One ball
took effect just above SherrlU's
chin, going through his head,
He fell on the porch aud died al
most instantly. The two White
brothers walked off, going toward
Salisbury. It was reported that
tliey iiroiHised to sui render to the

that they killed Sberrill for ruin
ing their niece, Miss Annie White.

short though it is, meant nothing

There was a sensational arrest
and trial at Burlington yesterday
of Mr. George W. Anthony, oue of
the wealthiest aud most prominent
citizen of the town, ou the charge
of cruelty to animals.
Before Justice of the l'eace Rob
inson, Mr. Anthony wo bound
over to the next term of Alamance
Superior Court, under a bond of
100, which he promptly gave. The
warrant against Mr. Anthony was
sworn out by Mr. W. J. Weatherly,
game warden of Guilford county.
Last week, it is alleged, during a
storm, a great quantity of martins
took refuge in the chimney of a
house belonging to Mr. Authnuy.
Tbe occupants, it is charged, asked
Mr. Anthony how to get rid of
them. He advised the placing of
a wire cap over tbe top of the
chimney and setting a fire of straw
in the fireplace. This was done,
mid 210 martins, by actual count,
fell to the floor suffocated and
burned. There Is said to have been
givat indignation in Burlington
over the arrest of Mr. Anthony.

Sunday. He was a traveling man,
and on hastily catching a car for
the depot that morning wished to
give a bell boy ut tho Berkeley a
dime. Ho found he had no dime
and threw to the boy what he sup
posed were two penuii'tt. On the
train was Sheriff Iteed, who was
going to Greeuville with a prisoner,
Sol Norton, and to him the traveler
told of his giving away ten dollars.
The man returned here witti tlie
sheriff and Monday night they went
to the Berkeley where the sberifl
assured the man he would get the
money, n Frank Lough ran would
uot have any one except honest em
ployes iu tbe house. Tho sheriff
asked the boy where the two pen
nies were, aud ho replied iu his
trunk at home. He and the sheriff
went to tbe bouse and sure enough
u the trunk were the pennies
which the sheriff turned over to
the man. The employe said he did
not know they were five-dollar gold
piece, but thought tney were
bright penuies. Sheriff Reed say
that a boy who will lock up pen

There was a story receutly print
ed in tbe Raleigh paper concern
ing tbe recovery of the two one
thousaud dollar bunds stolen from
the safe of Watson & Godfrey, in
Joneoboro, last November. It seems
that the partieeiu Kuleigh connect
ed with their return are uot "talk
ing for publication," and conse
quently the manner in which they
were returned seem to be a mys
tery so far aa the public is in
foimed. The bonds were North
Carolina 4 per rents., aud were the
pros?ry of Mrs. J. I Godfrey of
Joueslsim. Thev, together with
about I..VK) iu rxsh belouging to
at sou & Godfrey, were stolen the
night before last Thanksgiving dav.
All eflbits to trace the perpetrators
of the theft were futile, and Mrs.
Godfrey had about given up hojie
of recovering her projierty. A few
days ago, so the story current in
this community goes, Mr. J. L. God
frey, busUud of the lady who
owued the bonds, received infor
mation from au attorney iu Raleigh
that be could secure the return of
the bonds upou payment to him of
1,000 in cash. The attorney sub
seqneutly refused to divulge the
name of tbe party in possession of
the Itouils, merely stating that a
elieut of his bad come into posses
siou of them and had learned that
they were stolen. Mr. Godfrey ac
cepted the proposition, paid the
money and received the bonds, aud
so tar as I know ha uo idea as to
who stole them or bow they turned
up. The matter was kept quiet
and out of tbe puers for some rea
son, aud their return was not gen
erally known until the coupons
were presented to the State 1 reus
urer for payment.
In an article in Tbe lMinenitor
for October ou the education of
Girls as future W ives aud Mothers,
Mrs. Theodore V. Birney dcsrrilirs
a practical auu very suggestive
plan which was adopted by one
mother in the instruction of her
own children and some little friends
of their. She ha organized a club
to which she will give a portion ot
every Saturday, for the instructiou
of the youthful uiembersiu cookery
aud other housewifely duties. To
lay the foundation for a thorough
training in matters that pertain
to wifehood and motherhood, each
little girl will be given a doll, pre
sumably s few days old, which she
will be taught to bathe and dress
and to do the hundred other little
thing necessary in the cure of iu-
fants. The members of tbe club
will follow the babies through the
various sicknesses to which chil
dren sometimes succumb, and as
the imaginary baby grows older,
an interesting feature will lie the
introduction of queetious of oliedi
euce and punishment, etc. This
training will doubtless prove of in
estimable benefit to the children,
stimulating an interest in home
matters and giving them an under
standing of things which every
woman should possess. More clubs
of this kind should lie organized.
