new life to the concern.

A meeting was held at the court house
last 8aturday with Col. N. a Whitfield
In the chair and C. C. Daniels, of the

was for the purpose of taking steps to

In the coming State Exposition. Col.
Bnj. S. Pardee, ot the Nfew Haven
Palladium, addressed the meeting,
. - pointing out the Importance of the Ex
position and giving some interesting
facte gathered by him in this section of
the State. A resolution was adopt
ed reoommending the county commis
skners and board oil justices to appro
priate $1,000 for the purpose of making
the county exhibit. A committee con
, austing of Mesara. J. C. Kennedy, J. M.
Wootea,. C. Wooten, Geo. E. MUler
. aad Dr. S. H. Lewie to submit a plan
. -of making the exhibit to the board of
Justices on the 1st Monday in March.
: isoma of the leading farmers and tax
payeca thiak a thousand dollars rather
'- aa extravagant outlay for the county.
Thsy org that a central committee at
S. yinafr"Ti to receive and store the articles
for exhibit is all that is necessary to
. make the eolUctton of material, as the
farmers would willingly and gladly
. - brine m pecimene of marl, timber and
farm products. This is the question the
. justices should consider well. It is
. within the power of the county to make
aa exhibit that wUl not be excelled by
any other county in the State, or if the
people are not ambitious to excel, then
an ordinary exhibit can be made with
lese money. It has been suggested that
Capt. W. S. Bird would be a suitable
person to take charge of the county's
- exhibit at Raleigh, and also a very com

ii Item from Hydr.
A friend just from Hyde county re
ports that a negro who was in jail es
. iped last Saturday night by heating a
his.-! and burning out the staple of the
1. ck on tha door. After getting out he
went to Rev. Mr. Heamau's and stole
hi- Hr." horse, with which he made his
. scape. He crossed Alligator river in
tiie neighborhood of Kilkenny, and
t bile crossing the m.,rsh the horse got
mired down. He went out to get help
to get him out. prom l.-ing the gentlemen
ivli i assisted him tive dollars. After
tiie horse was out he could not pay the
m..ney. This circumstance caused his
assistants to suspect that something was
wron. They sent over to Fairfield and
there learned of the escape from jail. .
and the boy and horse were returned,
the one to gladden thx heart of the min-
ister. the other to console the sheriff an j
"let the law take it; course. "
Our canvassing agent. C
his travels, has found one farmer
who uses Furman's formula in manur
ing. It is Mr. Jus. M. Kornegay. near
Seven Springs. He manured one acre
hist year as an experiment and made
ITaO lbs. ,if seed cotton nn it. doubling
that manured in the ordinary way. We
lid not learn the exact quantity of ma
nure applie 1 to this ;k re. but the result
was S.oO net profit
ire than was
made on any other acre, and the saving
of the cultivation of one acre
making the same amount of cotton on
me acre that is usual iy made on t wo. the
expense of cultivating one acre is saved.
This is a strong argument in favor of
the "intensive svstem."
We invite Mr. Kornegay. and hope
lie will respond, to give us a statement
. f his manner of rryinuring and culti-
vating this acre,
By doing so he will

The suggestion of our White Oak cor
respondent that several Eastern counties
join together in making a display at the
Mate Exposition is a good one. The
counties mentioned in his letter, to
gether with Greene and Pitt, could
make a display equal to any section in
the State. But how shall we get the
ball in motion'.' That is the question
now: and we haven't long to think
about it. Craven is so crippled
and burdened with debt that
we can hardly call on our county
commissioners for an appropriation, yet
w e believe the people had rather pay a
tax for that purpose than to let the
county be unrepresented. But haven't
we men who own real estate that they
wish to dispose of. and are they not
aware that the Exposition will be the
best advertisement they can get if they
take advantage of the opportunity .
Then why don't they make a united
effort to exhibit the products of their
lands, the timber, marl, lime rock,
phosphate rock. etc.

The State Exposition.
In supplementing our recent article
as to the mode of having this section
I properly represented at the State Expo
sition, we wish to impress upon our
I Riiril of Trud e an ,1 t hp I tor ton Kvrhnii : -e
the fact that New Berne is the metropo
lis of this section of the State: it is the
"hub" from whence radiates the spokes
of a wheel whose peripheny embraces
a radius of at least one hundred miles.
This immense territory tributary as it
is to our city, from which only gain is
received; that makes us the eutre l of
all its productions, is entitled to very
great consideration at the hands of our
busiuess men whose "weal or woe" is so
dependent upon these contributors to
our prosperity. The trade of New Berne
can be increased a hundred per cent, by
the exhibition and practice of the proper
energy. We have heie two regularly
organized bodies of business men. com
posed of our very best material who
frequently convene and intelligently
discuss matters of interest pertaining to
tlieh.iclr:$. Now the average farmer
living remote from his neighbor in
many instances has not the opportunity
to arrange for a concert of action in
order to do justice to his section, and
does and must rely upon his commer
cial factors to aid him in tin- proper rep
resentation of his locality.
Hence, it follows that organized bo i
ies. such as w e possess, should assume
th duty, and through a Joint commit
tee, by printed circular address,, i to
each of th"ir country business friers-!-,
solicit such articles as they may think
will materially add to tin- State display.
The articles as received could be 'lace i

A young white man walked into our
