Uut my heading is geiieialihis

about travels. "Would you not like

j ever3- day fare!
I was strongly ail
vised to buy -'hotel coupons' tor
my journey. Mv adviser had just
retnrned from a European tour, and
his ejcoerienee endoiseil the com
1 fort atui cheapness of that plan;
for he said he was "fleeced" every
time ne where he could not use
"conpoDS. ' nils is a system oi
tickets, good for lodging aud board
at a large number of specified
hotels, aud costing from 2 to $2.50
per day. Another gentleman, of
experience, also iu travel, as strong
ly advised against the whole sys
tem, and claimed that any judicious
person could travel more cheaplj-.
I have tried both: very little of the
''hotel coupons," however, nud
don't want any more.
This differs from ours. In (Ireat
Britain, to a large extent, four
meals are taken daily. I?ut gen
erally a light breakfast; a lunch at
1 p. in.; and an elaborate meat and
vegetable dinner at f! p. m. is the
practice. In Paris many take only
two meals; "dejeuner" at 12 m., and
a large dinner at 7 or 8 p. m. The
traveler's plan should le to take a
simple breakfast at X a. m. of coffee,
chocolate or milk, bread and butter,
with honey or marmalade, which
will cost from twenty-five to thirty
seven cents; then catch somewhere
in his rambles a lunch for as much
more; and finish with the '-table d'
hotr"1 in the evening at sixty cents.
TABLE D' IIOTE.
This is a grand institution. I
was told that a man would get up
hungry from it. Mark Twain said
that he knew some Americaus, who
said they had gotten enough; but
he also knew some Americans who
lied! If I had had the management
of Mr. Mark for a while, be would
have written differently! If a man
cannot enough in one or two hours
at a table from a dozen different
dishes, he deserves to be hungry.
Just think of one's opportunity for
gastronomic distinction. First al
ways an artistically folded napkin.
a gTeat mystery, holding a piece
of bread; then a plate of potage a
laKinkum Flnidaster i'neuuoteckie.
This is usually nothing to boast of,
but it helps to till. Then "Poisson

du Shonemaker;" and these fish are
good. "ow come Cotilbon Kricard

It may begin with simple icecream:

It was good too. Perhaps then
fruit, cakes or 'con lections ot variety:
and nuts and raisins. on may
think this a burlesque, but it is not
except in the outrageous names
these folks give to simple things. I

Kockingliam county is to have a
neat anil attractive exhibit. Its
section is nearly completed.
Wake will have quite a handsome
department- It is near the engines
at the western portal, aud has a'
fine light. Mr. Fred. A. Watson, !
who has charge of the papering
aud general decoration, proposes to
do all with his usual good taste.

In each hundred feet of spa,ce in

and convenience of the public. The
ice water which is to be so liberally
furnished by the exposition com
pany will certainly be refreshing.
There will be large reservoirs of
ice water at each entrance.
The toilet rooms for the ladies are
being neatly fitted up. Careful i
servants will be in attendance.'
The ladies will be pleased that pro-;

The road to the exposition
grounds must certainly be put in
order. This is a matter of such
special importance as to interest;
every citien of Ealeigh who will
have to use the road. Convicts
ought to be put at work there at
once. No pnins ought to be spared
to have the work thoroughly aud
carefully dune. A reporter made a
careful examination of the road and
found dozens of bail places iu it.
The matter is called to the special
attention of tho exposition authori
ties and the people of Kaleigh.
The Raleigh and Gaston railroad
will make special preparations for
the transportation of passengers be
tween the exposition grounds aud
the city. The trains will be larger
th. lit usual and will run more fie
queiitlv. The depot accommoda
tions at 1 Iargett street station are
ceitaaily to be tine. The large
shed there will accommodate many'
pet.; de. There is a general belief
that this depot will be retained for
perm alien r use a passenger station.
It will certainly be gratifying if this
bea fact. A depot at the end of
I Iargett street possesses all the
ml vantages. It is nearer the city
and will save the railroad and its
pa-sengers much trouble. Hargett
street is practically level ami a far
better thoroughfare than Salisbury

Crin ford t o, inly, oi . Inch Gice.;
boio is the capital, was elected
from liowan and Orange, and was
so named in compliment to Lord
North, who was heir to the litle of
I Guilford. This section, with Kan
dolph and Rockingham, was set
' tied iu 1700, (ten vears before Guil
ford was elected) the south and
: west portions by Quakers from
'Pennsylvania and Nantucket, and
the north and east by Prosb teriaus
i and Baptists, and r he influx of im
migration has not materially dis
turbed these ecclesiastical divisions.
The principal and business street
in Greensboro, northeast from (he
railroad depot lias a number of
handsome stores of brick; the dry
goods trade is well represented and
i there are two wholesale houses in
that line. There is great room for
improvement, however, in flu
street. The grade might be im
proved, and in a rocky country like
this it is a matter of surprise to
strangers that it is not paved with
stone or macadamized. The street
west of the court house, though nar
row, Is beautifully shaded, and has
many pretty residences. Gen. A.
M. Scales, the Democratic candi
date for Governor, has a fine resi
dence surrouuded by beautiful
grounds at the southwest end of the
main street. On the opposite side
there is a well conducted commer
cial college. There are several
hotels here. The principal one is
the Ben bow House, kept by Dr.
Benbow.a member of the Society j
of Friends. It is well furnished
aud the Doctor spares no pains to
make his guests comfortable. One
of the special features of the house,
is, that passengers by train going
north or south are conveyed to the
hotel for meals and returned to the
train, all for the, small sum of lilty
Greensboro would have appeared
to better advantage had the site of
the city been southwest of the rail
road. No doubt in the course of

The weather is now delightful.
The backbone of summer has been
broken and the recent rains have
benefitted the crops, and especially
has the travelling public appie
ciated the'moisture in allaying the
clouds of dust that have prevailed1
during the drought.
A few miles west of Greensboro
there is an extensive nursery, wheie
I saw thousands of choice varieties
of peach and apple trees, aud the
place is furnished with an ample
supply of water in case of drought.
This whole country needs com
peting lines of railroad to develop
it. It was a grave mistake when
the State paitcd with her interest
in the N. C. Railroad for a long
term of years. The corporation
now controlling considers the inter
est of Virginia more than that of
North Carolina. I was in one of
the local depots a short time ago
aud there saw ready for shipment a
large number of bales of domestics
and plaids, the products of North
Carolina mills, to points throughout
the Western and Souther n States.
Fruit is shipped iu large quantities,
but the prevailing rates of freight
are such as to discriminate against
the East and force the merchants
there to purchase the products of
our own State in a foreign market,
at more reasonable terms than they
can be obtained here.
The consolidation ot the A. .X N.
C. liailroad with the N. C. Railroad
would have been the wisest policy
for the State to pursue, and in order
to have separated the road from
political manipulations leased it to
a North Carolina syndicate, and if
there was not enterprise eo:-gi.

The change that has taken place iu

phenomenal. If the election had come
on then it is known to our friends that
we had the gravest fears that Cleveland
won! 1 be defeated. But the outlook is
very different now. It is positively
bright and growing brighter (-very day.
We sincerely believe that unless there
is a reaction before November unfavor
able to the Democracy that Cleveland
and Hendricks will be elected. New
'fork is all ri.ht now. The 6''tr. Tam

ABSTRACT OF LISTKD TAXABLE8.
The following is an abstract of the
taxablea listed in Craven county for the
Acres of land. 314,911 S 577,912
Town lots 1,048,048
Horses. 1.063 61,143
Mules, 528 31,385
Jacks, 1 10
Jennies, 2 151
Goats, 440 743
Cattle. 5.753 34,553
Hog. 9.542 11,196
Sheep. 2.032 2,234
Farming utensils 108.786
Money on hand 47,785
Solvent credits 149,819
Stock in incorporated comp'ys 15.985
Other personal property 249,809
Total . .
Net income $15,498
Bank stock 30 915
White polls 984
Colored polls 1,084
Compared with last year we find a
shrinkage in values to the amount of
140,430. The shrinkage does not ap
pear to be ou any particular class of
taxabk s, but seems to be genaral. The
number of acres of land listed is 9,816
more than last year, yet the total valua
tion is $41,300 less; the valuation of
town lots is 818,050 less than last year;
the number of horses is three more thnn
last year, yet the valuation is $9,405
less: there are seven 'less mules listed,
but the value has decreased $3,588;
goats have more than doubled in both
number and valuation, being, it ap
pears, about the only profitable thing in
the county during the last year; cattle
have fallen off both in number and val
uation; hogs have decreased about one-
fourth, which is attributable to thechol
era: sheep have also decreased in num
ber. the dogs must be held responsible
lor this; there is a falling off in the val
uation of farming utensils of $5,138,
caused, no doubt, by the short crop lost
year; there is $8,023 less money report
ed on hand than last year, and $6,850
less solvent credits; under the bead of
all other personal property there ie a
railing on of i!l,te24, and ot Btock in in
corporated companies $13,577.
The shrinkage in farming utensils and
personal property is undoubtedly caused
by the short crop of last year. Many
I farmers were compelled to ran the old
I plow one year longer, and the old furni-
ture about the house and kitchen had to
be dusted off and made to answer until
times softened under the pressure of a
heavy crop and good prices.
But really we can Bee no cause for
depreciation in the value of town lot
come together, holding their interest in
common, and investigate tbe cause of
such depreciation and inquire what is
necessary to give the city an upward
These figures furnish food for reflec
tion to the business men of New Berne.
, We desire to call special attention to one
item, and that is the amount of bank
i btock listed. Is it possible that the city
of New Berne owns less than one-third
of its banking capital? True, if we
; haven't got the capital we are fortunate
i if some one else will put his money here,
j But where is the $50,000, money on
1 hand that is usually listed?
I There is one other thing we wish to
call attention to. It has been referred
to several times by the Journal since
we located in New Berne, and we in
tend to continually refer to it until
there is an alteration sortie way or
other. The number of white polls listed
in 1883 was 1.029, in 1884, 918, a falling
off of 45. The colored polls listed in
1883 was 1,078, in 1884, 1,084, a gain of
6. While there is a slight improvement
in the list of colored polls, still the list
is small when compared with the voting
population of that race. They list only
one hundred more polls than the whites
while they poll nearly double the votes.
This simply proves that a large number
of the colored people do not care enough
about taxes to even list, notwithstand
ing a lailure lo list is maae a misae-
meanor by law. This poll tax is applied
to the support of the poor and for edu
cational "purposes, and every able bodied
man within the prescribed age should
be made to pay it, or the poll tax fhould
be abolished. It is a matter that the
next Legislature should seriously con
sider. Provide more effectual means
for compelling persons to list their poll
tax and for collecting the same, or
abolish it entirely.
