Evangelist Sainre" Archer, former
editor of the Revolver, ( deceased.) is
laboring as a missionary in Buncombe
onnty, and has been figuring in the
meetings of the Reps and Pops. He
failed to attend the convention at

July, but we suppose he sent them
greetings, ami urged them to keep a still

In future all communications ad
vocating candidates for otlice will be
charged for at the rate of 10 cents per
line unless the candidate advocated has
his card in the Rkcoki, which costs
only $5 in advance. After ample expe
rience we have come to the conclusion
that the only way to keep a newspaper
alive in Marion, is to charge a reason
able price for all the work we do.
a-s- Every body ought to know that
newspapers do nor publish comiuniiiea
tious unless the editor knows the party
writing them. Xeither should you
think that because a sheet of paper has
two sides, vou are obliged to write on
both of them. We will not publish any
communication unless the name of the
author is known to us. and the man
who writes on both sides of the pape
can call around next week and get his
communication out of the waste basket.
The concert given on last Monday
night by the Old Fort Mutual Im
provement Club, consisting oi uui
Fort's mdst talented young ladies and
gentlemen, was enjoyed very much by
a large and appreciative audience. "A
Morning in China," was well rendered.
The costumes representing the differ
ent nations were well gotten up. A
recitation by Miss.Tressie Westermann j
entitled, "The Polish Roy," shows she
has talent as an elocutionist. Miss

to perfection. Most of t he club returned
to Old Fort by private conveyance af
ter the concert.
A tramp about 50 years old, badly
disligured, but still in the umbrella
business, was in town Monday. He tells
a story, which if true, is disgraceful to
our county; he pays that while coming
along the road above oiu on, n
met by two young men, who without
any provocation, assaulted him with
rocks and beat him unmercifully. He
says he layed in the woods in an insen
sible condition from Saturday evening
until Sunday morning. The villains
who committed this deed, may never
be punished in McDowell county, but
from the deviltry that is going on, it
would seem that it is not far from here
to a place where they do punish such
rascals by feeding them on melted lead
In another column we publish a
communication from a prominent Dem
ocrat in Rurke. From the tone of his
letter we infer that our Uurke county
friends who realize the situation are
anxious for harmony in the party. This
is essential to success. This county
and Yancey are clearly entitled to
name the nominees for senators, and
we will coiue forward with good men,
and let us work together in harmony
for success. Judge Bymim is Burke's
candidate for the nomination forjudge.
