THE BATTLE OF THE BATH HOUSE.
Atlantic oysters don't agree,
But 'tie a sadder sight
When sea ide Pernwinkles clafli
And at the bath house tight.
i The oysters had a peppery stew
i And freely epoka their mind
When Democrats to "tale a dip"
With Radicals declined.
, One platform could not do for both.
And so, to make things equaro,
This Radical refused to dross
If Democrats were there.
Cut lo ' upon the rising wave
Our hoet at once poured oil.
For when he built a dre.-inp room
The stinr was not a broil.
liut Perry winkles wre not wiso.
And dos- are all in water hot.
For daily does tho question rise
t Of who shall bathe and whoshull not.
In ivn7i' they should not let
Such angry noughts prevail:
Both champions, it is true, are stout.
But only one is i i.Y.
But should the oysters broil and stew
Until the season 's o'er.
Their squabbles are but shuttle -co.k
I'nto this battle dour.

the matter was dead now. and needed
no further action, but submitted a let

now of San Francisco, which asked that
the indictment be not dismissed, and
stating that in addition to crimes
charged against him, Kissane has also
committed murder. The letter
"Kissane, by llight and change of

prominent man in th State, and has
great wealth. Una of his brothers is a

He has never offered restitution to the
many he has wronged. In haste.

yesterday reported great damage

Keports indicate that everything in

With reference to the intere.-tiiig

which we reproduced trom the .New

would say that the difference be
twei n the climate of Alabama and
that of onr own State should not
be lost sight of in considering the
experience of Farmer Terrell. In
Alabama the cotton plant matures
readilv. With us it is necessary to
force maturity, so to speak to en
courage boiling at the expense of
the growth oi the plant itself.
Bearing this difference in mind we
believe the article will be found to
contain many valuable hints to the
farmers of North Carolina.

He plays upon the reader's feelings as
with an enchanter's wand, at one tim
fiiliDg his heart with gladness, at anoth
er blinding his eyes with tears. At Ins

strong men. as well as sensitive women,
weep tears of compassion, are aroused

able laughter in spite of every off -ti
to control their feelings.
Its illustrations are the b;st we have
