Those keeping horses should, twice a

ashes. Mix them by putting in three
narts of salt to one of ashes. Horses
relish this, and it will keep their hair

"Mild form of Pxocription The
Contest in Iredell. .
Messrs. Editors: A little incident
occurred in this usually quiet burg,
which so well illustrates the animus of
the Ku Klux Democracy that I cannot
refrain from giving it to'you. It was
just after the election for Governor.
Several young gentlemen- of the Re
publican faith, who had quietly listened
to the hearty rejoicings over Judge
Merrimon's supposed election, under
took to celebrate the real election of
the present : honored executive. Gov.
Caldwell. They paraded the town,
cheered lustily and called out Hon. D.
M. Furches and Dr. Mott for speeches.
No feature of malice or resentment
displayed itself. It was simply the
usual outpouring of zealous partizans,
when it was known that their candi
date had carried the election. For this
seemingly slight offense to the party

further we desire to see its exhibition.
We tell the gentlemen who saw fit in
their disloyal indignation to suggest
their procedure to the authorities that
they will be thwarted in their ill laid
plan of revenge. !
We learn that Wm. II. Bailey that
plucky little attorney, has already suc
ceeded in having the case removed to
the Federal Court. Howl on ye evil
doers ! Uncle Sam with keen solicitude
notices his children the good as well
as the bad. The good people of the
State will remember that it was out a
few weeks prior to this occurrence, that
E. B. Drake, the senior editor of The
American, was brutally stricken down
on the streets in this place to the great
delight of the Klan then, and there as
sembled. . Mr. Drake, venerable for his
years, his usefulness and his good con
duct knew nothing of the assault till it
was committed. One thing more re
mains to be said: A large part of the
men engaged in this Republican celebra
tion of victory, but one year ago acted a
mucn more conspicuous part in Hur
rahing for the success of the "Conven
tion" when the first returns of that
election came in. They have since
however concluded to "eat crow no

of South Carolina,, voted ; a Mr. Bose,

voted; a colored man from South Caro

crats. The colored man was pushed to
the polls and told by Democrats to
vote, that he should be protected in it.
One Democrat, whose wife lives in
Robeson county, was allowed to vote.
A Republican, whose wife lived in
Robeson county, was not allowed to
vote, though he had lived here twelve
months. Another Republican vote was
refused on the ground that his mother
lived in South Carolina ; he had lived
in this county all his life.
All the fraud committed here was on
the Democratic side.
If they contest
the election we must have all such
fraud and illegal voting brought

thank it for the handsome and well

ing attention to the matter in question.
This is as it should be. We are glad
to see this hearty response on the part
of our contemporary to our claims for

found The Era, as the central organ
of the party, manifesting the right
spirit, in the past, on these sectional
questions indeed -upon all matters af

and believe that, in the future, it will
not forfeit the good name it has so mer

people everywhere may still have cause
to recogniie in it the mouthpiece and
spokesman of tho Republicans of North

which we can . look up to in time 6f

are entirely disconnected from our sec

a faint idea of what the white Repub

Aullville .Toper Cured A
.: . Practical, Joke.
From the Sedalla (Mo.) Bazoo Sept. 14.
There has been hanging around the
quiet little village of Aullville, for some
ume, a man by tne name oi xtogers,
Who is verv much addicted to drinking,
and in fact, to such an excess that he
became a bore to the town. In order
to get rid of him. a plan was devised
by some of the fun-loving boys of that
place, and it was decided that when
next found drunk he should be placed
in a box and shipped by express.
They had not long to wait for the op
portunity, and he was given the fit of a
very neat pine box, which contained a
few holes, sufficient for ventilation.
He was placed aboard the train and
billed for Lexington, " this, side up
with care." - '
To see the joke carried out, and that
nothing serious happened the box,
about half a dozen or more of young
Auvillians went up with the box on
the train. But proving a little indis
creet in showing too much attention to
the box, the conductor "smelt a mice'?
and had it put off at the ; little village
of Higginsville. lAnyxy, the -hoy
were not to be defeated in' having their
fun. jThe night was lovely and fair
Luna was lending her mellow rays to
the solemnity of the occasion. Several
chairs were sent for. and the box coffin
was placed upon the chairs on the plat-
form, and all arrangements speedily
made. The lid was unscrewed ana
slipped back sufficient to show his face.
The men stood around with heads un
covered, and the scene was as quiet as
the tomb. There he lay, the sleeping
beauty, placed in the role of a " live
corpse." The band of faithful follow
ers then began in a solemn and trenlu
lou3 voice with the sacred song of
"Unveil thy bosom faithful tomb,
Take this new treasure to thy trust." j
The corpse moved, opened his eyes,
then smacked his mouth. A' moment
more and he was fully interested.
Yes, he was brought a sitting the first
effort singing still going on he eyed
the crowd and then his box, he grew
pale, and began to shake.- " Boys,
what's the matter ?
Am i aeaeir" imo
answer, and singing
"Ansrels. where am
cold and dismal tomb," came from a
deep and solemn voice. "Let us pray,"
was said, and at these words the coffin
went one way and the subject the other.
Up the street he went like the d 1 was

thought it for every cuss of them took
after him with all the unearthly yells
that ever greeted mortal ears. He call

in the wind, and with looks as wild as
It happened that he got on the road
that led back to Aullville, and the poor
fellow on arriving there was so scared
and exhausted that he required close
attention until his nerves could be re
crained. He has since made up his
mind to join the Good Templars and
study for the ministry.
A Mighty Hunter Among the Cats.
From the Lebanon (Ky.) Standard.
A certain lady was recently very
sick, and, owing to the nature of her
disease, (acute dyspepsia) she could eat
no kind of meat except wild meat.-
Her brother engaged a certain boy to
keep her supplied with squirrels, but,
as advancing civilization has almost
driven that species of rodentia from our
midst, and the boy not being an expert
at the business, the supply became ex
hausted. This necessitated an extra
exertion on the part of the family to
procure a fresh supply of wild meat,
and while they were devising ways
and means, a domestic cat belonging
to the family brought in a nice young
rabbit, and, with an air ol great satis
faction: laid it by the bed of -the sick
ladv. This was repeated by the cat
several times afterward during the la
dy's illness, but never except when the
supply of. wild meat was exhausted,
It never did the like before, and ceased
to de so as soon as the lady recovered.
These facts are vouched for by all the
members of the family, which is as re
putable and respectable as any family

Married Divorced Twenty-five
Years Later Married Agrain.
On Monday evening Justice Rolfe
married L. D. Wells to Agatha Gibbs.
The parties were married some twenty
five years ago In tiie East, and after a
year and a half the husband came to
California, where has since been "drift
ing about." The Wife obtained a di
vorce, and in course of time was mar
ried to another man. After some years
her husband died, and she became a
widow. A short time since a corres
pondence was commenced, the old
flame of love, which had slumbered for
more than twenty-three years, was re
kindled, and resulted finally in an offer
of marriage, which was accepted by
the lady, and she came tT California.
Nearly a quarter of a century after
their first vows were given, the cere
mony was again performed on , Mon
day night, as above stated. Another
example that the reality ,of this life is
frequently stranger than romance.
Will. M. Coleman;' whom the Re
publicans of North Carolina forced to
give up his office of Attorney-General
because of improper conduct, and
whom Grant removed as Consul to
Stettin because of incompetency, has
come out for Greeley. He is now in
Washington ' City waiting for some
thing to "turn up," and has issued a
low appeal to the "Ultra Radicals of
North Carolina," signed "Red String."
In this he says " that the interests of
the Radicals and the Democrats are
identical. ' The Radicals have
nothing to take back. The Democrats
CAME AL.li THE WAY TO THEM."
When it is remembered that Gree
ley, Sumner, and Coleman all believe
in negro social equality, and that Cole
man "knows the ropes," it does look
as if the Democratic leaders, for the
sake of office, have, in truth sold out
the masses to the extreme Radicals.!
They could not stop at the safe and sure
ground of Republicanism, but must go
to the extreme of all the issues.

Romance of tho War.
An Ohio Soldier's Kindness . to JaTen
nesseean Recompensed with a Fortune.
From tbo Cleyel&nd Plaindealer. ;
Our neighboring city of Tiffin is just
now. deeply interested ih ,the sequel of
a war episoaer wmcu snows now - ro
mance sometimes creeps into the events
of real life. JSarly in the war Tithn
and vicinity had a sort of itinerant Al
bright preacher named Downey. Up
on the outbreak of the war Downey en
tered the service as a Captain in. one of
the Seneca regiments, and when tne
government decided upori employing
negro troops, he became Colonel oi a
colored regiment. ' During the cam
paign in Tennessee, ' his regiment
chanced to be encamped upon the es
tate 'of Colonel.Washingtoh, near Nash
ville.. The regiment seems not to have
been under the best discipline ; and its
black desperadoes were dispose to give
free rein to their brutal instincts. They
seized Colonel Washington and threat
ened him with instant death, and also
set about destroying the:? elegant fami
ly mansion. Colonel Dowrie r, by great
exertions, and at the 'imminent risk of
his own life, succeeded in rescuing Co
lonel Washington from v death, and in-
saving the mansion and other property
from destruction. Colonel Washing
ton felt profoundly grateful at the time
for Colonel Downey's 'brave exertions
in his behalf, and-promised never- to
forget them. There the matter rested,
and the wild scenes yith which Downey
was surrounded soon drove it out of his
mind. He remained at the head of his
regiment till the war was over, and
then returned to Tiffin ; and settled
down into a quiet domestic life. Not
long ago he died, leaving his family in
straightened circumstances. Mrs. Dow
ney was driven to her needle lor support.
Sheand her children lived in their hum
ble way, with little thought that a great
change was soon to be wrpught in their
condition. Recently Col Washington
died, when it was found - that he had
willed his property, consisting of $10,-
000 in bonds and greenbacks, and three
hundred acres of improved land situ
ated a mile and a half from Nashville
the whole valued at $100:000 at least.'to
the heirs of Col. Downey. Israel J . Dow
ney, a son of the deceased Colonel, has
ust returned from Nashville, whither
he went to see about the bequest. He
found everything concerning the will,
as stated above. The executor of the
estate was in Tiffin on Monday, arrang
ing details of the transfer.
The history of the rebellion contains
few more romantic episodes than this.

Dear bir : I hare just, seen an extract from
your paper refernnff to the Gold Mfcues of
Mecklenburg county in your State. In that
article you ass tne question, 'lean the,ty
fractory ores of out quartz veins ba assayed
with similar results on a laree scale?" . To
which JT say y es. . . :
I iiai one of CVe gentlemen who have pur
chased the patent for the United States of
the wonderfurxjisco very of Professor Cros
by, of Maine. I have lost largely by- stain p
mills and other methods, though interested
in a mine in Virginia which assays 40 per
ton, but being sulphuret ore we could" not
save it.' The process of Crosby saves 80 per
cent oi mine assay oi any kind of ore . at a
cost of 3 per ton. and it is adapted to every
description of gold ore, while the machin
ery is comparatively cheap. "We are just
auous siarung a ton mill in Virginia
which costs, all told, $20,000. i
Mr. Crosby spent SSOO.000 and nearlv ten
years of time in Colorado perfecting his pro
cess, and the problem is now solved how to
save gold from sulphurets.
We have now on the wav a lot of nm
from King's Mountain Mine in your State,
also another lot from California, and we
will be happy to put through 10 tons of the
Wilson Mine in the presence of Mr. Clark,
the Superintendent. We hope to enable
every miner to get the full value of his ore,
and thus give value to a branch of industry
bo important to all gold bearing sections.
win you please show this letter to Mr.
Clark and have hira communicate with me
wihen I tinvarrango for a test of his ore at
our Virginia mill and satisfy him of all
hero stated.' r:';. " . ...... .
Yours respectfully, - r I
