The trustees finding themselves without 1
funds were compelled to limit free '
tuition to the 1st and 2d grades. Under
these difficulties the success of the
school has exceeded the expectations
of many. It is hoped to extend free
tuition up to the sixth grade for the
next session and thus largely increase
the number of pupils.

to a female academy
to do what is called graduating, and by
some styled "the finishing touches of

as competent toachers in New Berne as
t can be found in Raleigh, Goldsboro.

' in the State of North Carolina. The
best educated and most accomplished

On rrimsoned couch, the sun once more
At evening's gate lay dying:
Above the sad sea's sullen roar
The grieving winds were sighing;
A barque shot from the lonely shore
With all her broad sails Hying.
And they that sailed upon that ship,
No more they wept nor smiled:
No tearful eye, no trembling lip,
No supplications wild.
No sorrowing for the lessening lands,
No dread of coming ill;
They stood with folded, cold white hand
And heart forever still.
On that illumitable sea
The ghostly vessel sped ;
Out bearing to eternity
The world's unnumbered dead.
1 But on the shore so dark, so fair
rom which they swiftly parted,
Where piercing cries and mute despair
Of mortals broken-hearted.
, , . ,t . . . . .
And silent souls that only gazed
With steadfast, hopeless eyes,
But when the great celestial pyro
For each dead dav is lighted.
Then, looming on the wall of fire
That breathless ship is sighted.

Louisiana lies tue largest pro
general manager, J. B. Watkins,
an interesting account of this
gigantic plantation, which throws
aia into tne suaae completely.
"The 1,500XMl acres of oar tract,"
i t'i.; ' 1 , ,
Mr. U atkins said, "w;is purchased
in 1883 from the State of Louisiana
and from the United St ateHGovern-
meni. ai tnar time it was vast
grazing land for the cattle of the
few dealers in the neighborhood.
When J took possession I found
over 30.000 head of half wild horses
and cattle. My work was to divide
the immense tract into convenient
pastures, establishing station
ranches every six miles. The fen c
ing alone cost in the neighborhood
f0,0H. The land I found to be
best adapted to rice, sugar, corn
and cotton. All our cultivating,
ditching, etc.. is done by steam
power. We take a tract, say half
a mile w ide, for ipstance, and place
an engine on each side. The en-
gines are portable, and operates a
cable attached to four plows, and
under this arrangement we are able
plow 30 acres a day with only
the labor of three men. Our har-
rowing, planting and other cultiva
tion is done in a like manner; in
fact, there is not a single draught
horse on the entire place. We
have, of course, horses lor the
herders of cattle, of which we now
have 10,000 head.
"The Southern Tacific Railroad
ruDS for .36 miles through our farm.
We have three steamboats operat
ing on the waters of our own estate,
upon which there are M00 miles of
navigable waters. We have an
ice house, a bank, a shipyard, and
a rice mill." St. Louis Republican.
