own a -yaller dog." By having a
dog of that color, lie will take in
more wild meats, such as coons,
'possums, squirrels, rabbits, Sec,
than any other kind of doe ; and
that is the way he will have to get
bis meat.
Secondly The head man should
be cross eyed, nnd if not already
so, he should get an oculist to cut a
small cord on the inner side of the
eyes, so as to turn them out an
angle of about forty-five degrees,
lie should also be a good gunner

cotton farm should own mules that
are crop-eared, blind in both eyes
and bob tailed. The object in hav
ing mules of that kind is this: he
can buy them in for two dollars and
fifty cents, for that is all the money
be can put in mules.
Fourthly The cotton planter
should have bis own force and
never let his children get of age ;
as their birthday rolls around,
move np the dates. The boys
should be freckle faced and red
headed, and should wear chip hats,
with the tops out, so as to ste the
'bar;" also copperas pants, cut so
as to come about halfway between
the knee anoT ankle, and should
go bare-footed with one suspender,
and that fastened on with a wooden
Fifthly The head man 6hould
consider it a part of his religious
duty to keep his children in igno
rance and work them 10 to 13 hours
per day, and never visit the towns
or cities except to sell produce,
then keep in the middle of the
streets to prevent being tempted to
buy anything from the "land
sharks :' and if a guano agent
should mention fertilizer to him, i
stretch him out at full length with
a club that he should carry along
with him. Sell his coon skins to
pay his taxes, live at home and
board at the same place. Follow
out these instructions to the letter
and there is money in cotton at the
present prices.
Should the foregoing instruc
tions catch the eyes of tobacco
planters, don't feel stuck up, for
the same rules and regulations will
apply with equal force to them, only
I think a little more so, for whilst
he is catching one "wornim"' he
could be looking for another at the

Thomas Edison, the electrician,
when asked by a newspaper inter
viewer what he thougLt of the
Keely motor, replied: "I have
never seen it, so I have no opinion
about it. But ail the results he is
said to have obtained can be got
from compressed air. All the air
in this room can be condensed into
; a liquid that coald be carried in a i

ten hours ot wort as ins lamer
could fifty years ago. tor the
first time in the world's history, a
skilled mechanic can buy a barrel
of flour with a single day's work.
The machinery in the United
States represents the labor of a
thousand million men,

,' believe that the unskilled laborer,
if sober and industrious, can have
a house os his own and a horse and

ct is terrible stupidity that leads
some laboring men to suppose
the thing that giyes them indepea
dence and even fieedom. With
out machinery society would drift
into the conditton ol master and
, slave. The multiplication ol
machinery means for every worker
more food, better clothes, better
house, less work. In fact, 1 believe
that the indefinite increase of
machinery is going to solve what
, ,t. , , .. ,
tolkscall 'the labor question-
that is, the desire ot hand workers
to eet a bigger slice of the margin

A Reported Quadruple Alliance.
The intelligence that England
has in some sort joined the triple
alliance renews the interest every
one must feel in this great combina
tion. As entered into by Germany,
Austria and Italy the alliance is
said to be primarily defensive, hav
ing for its aim the maintenance of
peace on tne oasis oi existing .
treaties. But the alliance provides i
for offensiye action, in concert, on j
land and sea, against any power I
which alone or with allies under
takes by an aggressive act to break
the peace of Europe. Any act
looking to a forcible disturbance of
the existing distribution of power
in Europe or in the Mediterranean
would be an "aggressive act" with
in the meaning of the compact. The
territorial modifications to be
achieved by the combined action of
the three powers is stipulated. The
powers obligate themselves to pur
I The inclusion of the Mediterranean
in the area under the care of the
I alliance shows that it is aimed
chiefly at Russia, with France as a
j possible ally. It is not asserted
that Lord Salisbury has brought
j the British Empire into the alliance
I without some reservations. Prince
Bismarck would probably insist
npon limitations upon his responsi
bility for Kussian attacks on India,
or lor French proceedings ia the
New Ilebrides it that was still an
opex question. But he and Salis
bury have common ground in Bul
garia and Egypt, and EQgland, it
is supposed, eugages to act with
Germany, Austria and Italy only
in questions affecting English in
terests on the Danube and Zs'ile.

The Remedy For Social Ills
The advocates of the new theory
j of property, in their revision of the
Bible, would giye ns an improved
i version of the parable of the Good
j Samaritan. They tell us that when
the proud Levite and the selfish
priest had passed by the wounded
man, a Kind communist came down
that way, and began to whisper in
the sufferer's ear: "My friend, you
have been much in error. You were
a thief yourself when you were
amassing your private wealth; and
these gentlemen who have just re
lieved you of it with needless
violence have only begun in a hasty
and unjustifiable manner what
must soon be done in a large and
calm way for the benefit of the
whole community." Whereupon,
we are to suppose the man was
much enlightened and comforted,
and became a useful member of
society. But Christ says that it
was a Samaritan, a man of property,
ridiQg on his own beast, and carry
ing a little spare capital in his
pocket, who lifted up the stranger,
and gave him oil and wine, and
brought him into a place of security,
and paid for his support. And to
! every one that reads the parable
he savs: ''Go thou and do like-
; wise.'' Here is the open secret of
the regeneration of society in the
, form 0f a picture. And it we want
it in the form of a philosphv we
may get it from St. Paul in hve
words: "Let hin that stole steal,
no more (reformation), but rather !
let him labor (industry), working!
with his hands that wheih j
is good (honesty), that he may ;
have (property), to give to him
that needeth (charity. "-Forum.

the county what he owed on the said

time he has failed to keep said appoint
ment and meet said committee.
Therefore we now bring the matter
directly to the attention of the Board,

I Commissioner Brinson offered the fol

Whereas, The commissioners of this
county have for a number of years seeti
j and felt the necessity of havicg a bridge
across the Neuso river at some point
' near the city of New Berne, but owing
i to the impoverished condition of the
j people and the heavy burden of tax
ation that they have been laboring
under for the past twenty years, they
i have been unable to build said bridge.
; And wherea3. the county of Craven
; owns shares of the capital stock of the
! A. & N. C. R from which said county
i has never received any return for the
1 investment made.
Resolved, That steps be taken at once
by this board to sell said stock of Craven
county in said road, and the proceeds
! of said sale be applied to the building
of a bridge across the Neuse river at or
near New Berne, and if after the said
bridge is built there should be a surplus
j then apply the said surplus towards the
liquidation of the bonded debt of the
county. Provided, that in selling the
said stock it shall not be sold for a less
price than twenty-five dollars per share
and not without sufficient guarantee to
protect Craven county.
On motion of commissioner Watson
the resolution was laid over until the
next meeting of the board.

on the railroad propositions was Egain
taken up when Hon. C. C. Clark and

I Mallison moved to postpone until ti e
first Monday in December. Commir
, sioner Watson moved to amend by
; postponing until Monday Nov. Mth.
Mr. Watson 'a motion was adopted.
The account of Silas Fulcher in favor

talent and views, and all se'etions of the
country. 1'ui what is the object of the
convention? It is t consider the mo
mentous an i peculiar problems, moral
and Bccia', emerging in the c;j--ing
years of the nineteenth century, and
bearing cn all forms of Christian works:
the planting of Christian institutions,
directing popular education, allaying
growing discontent among working
men, and effectually mteticg the great
conflict with tho saloon. This study
will center around throe questions, v;s. :
1st. What aie tho present perils and
opportunities of the Christian Church
kand of the country'
2d. Can any of them be met but by
hearty co operation of all Evangelical
Christians, which, without detriment to
any denominational interests, will serve
the welfare of the whole Church?
3 i. What arc the best means to secure
such co-operation, and to'awaken tbe
whole church to its responsibility V

American institutions and our Christian
civilization. While the sessions are to
be opened by selected essayists, the
meetings t: be practical confkr

and tbe police was ready for l;u. ini .p at
a moment's notice.
Th:? death-watch over the anarchists
in jiil was thanked at one o'clock this
morning. The deputy who waa-then j
re lieved reported that he had a long talk )
w:;h Sjees. who s'.iJ he had no reason to j
De afraid, and then launched forth in ;
vituperations against the courts. He)
assorted that ail the Judges who had 1
any connection with the case had reason i
io tremble, while tho anarchists could ,
hold up their heads and walk to
death with steady footsteps. The dep
uty also related the manner in which i
Rev. Dr. Bolton was received by Spies.
?olton asked him if he would not ac
cept spiritual consolation. Spies with
a haughty shake of tho head declared
he had no use for any clergyman. "I'll
pray for you all niht,"' 6aid Bolton'
Pray for yourself," returned Spies,
"you need it mere than I." !
At 9 10 o'clock thi? mornint; Chief
Deputy Gloaaon arrived at the jail with j
the fatal documents authorizing the exc-
cution. Capt. Black, counsel for the
anarchists, held a conference wilh Gov.
Olaaby this morning. The Gov. an-:
nounced his final and irrevocable de
cision not to further interfere. This
news was at once wired to Chicago and !
great bustie and excitement followed ,
in the jvil ofli;o. Spies was apparently
consumed by fever and drank wineand
water freely. He wrote a great deal.
Ho wrote many autographs. The other
anarchists were like Spies, entirely non- 1
SjOe after 11 o'clock a fioai lunch was
eaten by the condemned men; ten min- ,
utes later Spies, E.ngel and Fischer were i
in their shrouds standing at tho grated i
cell door and saying ood-byo to
friends in the visitors cage.
Dea'h warrant were read
in succession to Spies. Fischer, En
gel and Parsons. Parsons. Fischer and
Spies asked for twent- minutes each on :
the gallows for the purpose of making j
rpeeckes. but their requests were not
granted by the Sheriff.
At a quarter to 12 o'eloek the death
march to tho scaffold began: nine
minutes later the drop fell. Fischer's'
last words were, "Hurrah for Anarchy. "
The pulses of anarchists ceased to beat

coffins, were plain black ones, were
soon brought up and the bodies placed !
in them.
A3 an illuf tration of Parsons' wonder- ,
ful p'uck it may be related that this I
morning early he entertained his guard j
with the song of 'Annie Laurio. " Ho
sang it entirely through and then re- i
peated it. His fortitude was the won- ;
der of all who heard him.
Schwab and Fielden's sentences have i

Lingg ended his life by means of a
fumigating case nud not with a revol

his mouth and lit it with a candlo which
was burning in his cell. The explosion
was the first warning that the jail peo

tion on the case of the several con
