I will tell a little story abcu' a
' hog killing time that 1 heard of in
Georgia once. It was on a bright
frosty morning, along about the
lirst of January on a very convivial
occasion, and thev invited in their
neighbors tojhelp at the hog killing,
and the women came in to assist
and be clever, and a tire was built
up with pine knots, and it was
blaing away and they came in
jovial and jolly to have a day of re
joicing. They cleared the hops and
hnng 'em tin, and they rejoiced.
Breakfast a little late and they
took more rejoicement.. Laugh
ter. They felt coyivial and kind
of hungry, and they commenced
broiling some pieces of liver, and
they were standing around in this
jnvons condition when consterna
tion and alarm fell upon the entire
community one of the hogs was
missing! How conld it come to
pass right here! llow could one
of those hogs be taken ivway ! And
they instituted an immediate sea rch.
and found that a cat had dragged
one of those hogs away. I.oud
and prolonged cheering No
wonder you men are spending mil
lions ot dallars for your meat when
we have snch hogs as that.
1 have a little remedy to offer
it is to reach the common farmer.
He does not take these papers. He
does not read anything. His home

have been there. I have stayed all

that was so weak it could not stand

Their homes are sad. There are no
tlowers there, no geraniums there.
The girls are skinny headed and
ugly. The boys are ugly; the old
woman was cross; the old man had
a sore tooth, and all was sad and
lonely. Now, cannot some hope

cloud into these places. You have

THE KOV -NOTHINGS
Propose to Filler the Presidential Can
vass of lsss.
The old war cry of the know-nothins;
party. "America, for Americans," will
again be raised in the presidential cam
paign of lSS by a new American party,
come forth, like Lazarus, from the tomb
of the old. The projectors of the re
newed movement say. however, that
the know-nothing movement never was
dead, and that, with its objectionable
features lopped olT, it still lives.
During the celebration of the consti
tutional centennial in this city a prepar
atory convention will be held, at which
delegates from thirty-eiht States will
be present. The call for this conven
tion has already been drafted by a body
known as the "American National Com
mittee." composed of some twentv or
thirty men. Although this committee
has been working very quiet
ly, they have been for
over a year in active corres
pondence with more or less prominent
people throughout the country, and
have laid the foundation for a solid
party of organization. Tho claim
among their numbers over 1,500.000
persons, members of societies whose
purpose is to inculcate purely American
ideas, some of which are a survival of
the know-nothing organizations of 1?44.
General Master Workman Powderly is
a prominent member of this new party,
and has given utterances more than
once to the principles this new party
propose to stand on. These principles
all start out from one central idea, the
restriction of immigration.
"The September convention will de
vote itself to formulating a scheme to
effect a thorough organization of State,
county and township committees, ncd
will call a convention to be held next
July, probably in this city, when candi
dates for President and Vice President
and State tickets will be put in the
field. " Philadelphia Express .

we get off at tho long pier

the hotel with gripsacks ia

burden. Wo have neglected to ir. :,

Though quite late, dancing is still its
progress. The crowd is larger than .. ..
had anticipated, but the clerk ii.f,
us that many of them were c.icurs: a
ists from Elizabeth City, and that !.:
was sorry he would be unable tu fur
nish us a room in the hotel on account
of the excursionists remaining over that
night and having engaged thc-m ahead
of us. He kindly olfered to do the best
he could for us, that was to take us over
to one of the cuttitQcx for that night.
The next day he would give us
a good room. .A servant took
our baggage, and in company with
friend L. we were escorted to a rude
looking house with steps running up on
the outside reminding us of going up
into a hay loft. There was not alight
to be seen at first, but a lantern was fin
ally found and we were led down a
passageway by the rooms. The first one
had no door and the second, opposite
the first, had scarcely anything in it.
The third we concluded to take. It
had two beds, or rather bedsteads, the
mattresses on which seemed to be tilled
with seaweed, pinebark or something
worso. The pillows were of the same
material. Due with all liiai n tired and
sleepy person can find repose. About
one o'clock found us dropping olf u
sleep in that state of happiness that only
tired manhood can properly appreciate.
In less than one hour a heavy knocking
and pounding was heard. A heavy
wind and rain was raging. I., was
standing on the floor trying to pr p and
wedge a window sash that had blown
out and was turning in the rain, lie
had drawn his bed across the room to
prevent a drenching from the rain which
penetrated that whole side of the build
ing. I found that myself had h.-en
given a shower bath unsolicited and un
beknowing. All thi kept iri awake
fully an hour longer, still we thought it
possible to get four or live hours sleep
by late breakfast, but fate was against
us. Our eyes were just closing in sleep
when some half a dozen boys who bad
been indulging rather much came up
and wanted sleeping quarters v.-ith
somebody they didn't care who. but
nobody wanted them. Tney tri.-d our
door but found it strongly faneiad and
the knob taken oil. Th.-y then pro
ceeded to where a poor fellow who was
so unfortunate a to get tho room with
no door at all and made a raid en him.
He reasoned, pleaded and did every
thing he could to get them to desit. but
no go. lie then tried rash measures,
but instead of improving, niatt- rs were
made worse. They set up a gent ral
serenade until about day when they
went down to the boat that brought
them there to the delight of many an
noyed persons. The next day we got a
pleasant room iu the I'.ottl arad inj.it up
for lust sleep.
