There, is no; doubt that window glass costs more ! , - i -. f than plain boards, but, on the ptherj hand, it is not so expensive as doctor's iilltt !m,1 medicine.

The people complain of colds, and no wonder r when joften ' t ' ! the greater portion of the light lias to . -i ' come through an open door, instead of a closed window. The .North" Carolina Exposition was a success, as were those held I in New Orleans, Louisville and Atlanta, in so far as the show, of products was con cerned. But financially all of them were" not a success .It turns out that the -New Orleans Exposition was a des perate ; financial failure, while the - . Southern Exposition at Louisville, after four years of trial,, winds' up' with a clear loss of a h If million dollars , The-.Georgia State Fair at Macon falls far below the; former exhibits.; Why this failure, to take a deeper interest in such useful and needed expositions? "We think it probable that if all the! counties would institute fairs, which is; certainly most desirable, and wohld i i -l j i ii j i ' i . i nom tnem ait ine same weeK m tne Fall to be known in the State, calen dar as the County Pair Week and from. these various fairslhe best spec-! imetis should be selected -and sent at onqe to. the Statje Fair at Raleign. to meet u-port the ..week following., that aT great display would, be made arid a creat impetus be given to both the!

He couldn't find anything in North Carolina that was good enough for him. He .was a f.-trmpr and he waxed very '-.sarcastic concerning the farming lands of this state. His pr neipal criticism seemed to be that land here is not exactly the same as what he had been accustomed to all his life. He was such an admir- i - ;. .

Thev had installed theinselvee in a carriage, occupied two seat with t e f Yer ons and the other two with their luggage for which there "... ' j . J .-. ' V was plenty of room elsewhere." When a lady anl gentleman were given seats in the same carnage, the ' male Snob objected audibly to being "so crowded'' and the female Snob seconded his ob jections. The lady and gentleman, having no liking for the society of Snobs, seemed glad to take refuge in another carriage. The -writer made diligent inqury,j but could not learn that these parties paid 'or more than two seats, although, occupying four. Carriages haven't gone entirely out of style yet, though the track for the new horse-railroad is b&rrg laid. It is to be hoped that after' this - enterprise gets well under; way it 'j. will be made BROOM CORN. . A new enterprise in North Carolina is a broom factory, lately established in Asheville by J. Straith & Co. These gentlemen distributed a great many seeds of the broom corn in that vicin- v ity with.ptructions how cultivate and cure the same, with a View to making a market" for the product. They state that on good ordinary land, farmers in that vicinity have realized from 30 to 80 per acre, As broom corn grows very; weU almost anywhere in thcstatc and the cultivation is both easy and profitable; it might be well for many of. our people to investigate the matter. .
