As in a terrific convulsion of nature

death of their loved ones. First

ter arithmetic by analysis and not by
the mere dogma of rules. There are
actually only four essential elements in
this branch of learning : First, whole
numbers. Every child should learn
how to add, subtract, multiply and di
vide. Each process should be taught
by-the use of snutit numbers rather, than
large, as it is the simple principle that
ought to be known. Second, fractions.
These should come into tbe work of the
sshool just as soon as whole numbers.
Every child can be easily taught, that a
fraction is only tbe part of a whole
namber. And provided small fractions
are used, that is, easy and not difficult
ones, hard problems may be handled
by the child with great facility. Third,
measurements. Let these also be taught
early. It is not necessary to crowd the
mind with liquid measures, apothecaiies
weights, and others that every child
knows from tbe milk cart and the
store, that two pints make a quirt, and
can easily grasp tho principle of these
things. And fourth, there is the essen
tial of per-cutae, which is the appli
cation of tho principle of fraotisns to
tbe details of business.
The whole of today will be taken up
with the examination of applicants for
tbe three year' certificates.
Tbe whole of Thursday was taken up
with the examination of applicants for
the three years certificates. Tbe larpe
majority of tbn teachers, as a mere
matter of intellectual exercise, partici
pated voluntarily in certain parts of the
examination. A few entered resolutely
into the contest as a serious matter of
business. But so very few of them ex
pect to teach out of Craven, and can
have their certificates renewed from
year to year, they did not consider the
examination of the highest importance.
The work of the Institute today will
oe a continuation or antnmetic ana an
earnest discussion of history. The room
will probably be crowded when this
last subject is taken up.
To learn arithmetic is to acquire a
knowledge of numbers. There are four
things to be learned about these. They
should be understood as a whole, that
is, from one to ten and from ten to
twenty. Next, they should be taken
apart by the exercise of eimple analysis.
Take any number, such as eiht, and
eeeho-v many different numbers com
bined together will make eight. Do
this by the method of object lessons.
Select any familiar symbols, such as
blocks, cards or marbles, combine and
separate until the mind becomes thor
oughly informed of the relation of
things. Then drill the intellect in
rapidity of exercise. If numbers are to
be united together or separated, it can
do no harm to train the powers in rapid
ity of execution, quickness and dispatch
often necessary and beneficial in the
handling of figures. The child might
as well go quickly as slowly. Then
t?icb it to work problems by the appli-
c.t.on of pnnciplPS already acquired,
Su8zeatlon9 were offered in o'ther
aPPlicatIotl of the le8S0E of analysis in

side of the brain. The mere memory of

such a method of instruction. Slowness

higher regions of tha mind, and often

I of thought. Thought grows out of the
effort to find a reason for things. And
this reason may always be discovered
by placing facts together, and studying
the logical relation between them.
What is History? It is the record of
a people's life. Out of this it is soon
made manifest that no people can live
together without wars, legislation and
commerce. These make up historical
progress. What is history taught for?
To give the child knowledge, character
and the love of such learning. It should
be taught with constant reference to the
homes of men and the localities of
events. It is better to learn by reading
than by struggling to remember its
successive pages. Let many authors be
examined. Uniformity of textbooks in
other studies, but not in this. Study it

we may well imitate them. The lives
of distinguished men and women
chronologically arranged make up tbe
developments of a nation. Do not bur
den the mind with dates, settlements
and unnecessary details. These can be
at any time obtained from books of
reference. Do not oumber the brain
with seditions, wars and outbreaks, bat
rather seek for the motives and causes,
the main progress of events, and the
facts of final adjustment. And in the
study of administration and govern
ment, omit difficult terms, and strive
rather by biographically studying the
subject to master its facts.

It appears that Lieutenant Winslow.

The subject of this notice was a man
of more than mediocrity in whatever he
was engaged. ut a stout, rigorous
body and well disciplined mind be
never went half way in any under
taking. He espoused the art of ship
building in early life, and was the
trusted helpmate of the late Thomas
Sparrow of this city, who was one of
tbe leading shipbuilders of his day. At
one time of his life be was down in
Mississippi and Alabama engaged in
constructing the cotton presses then in
use and becoming greatly in demand.
About '1845 or '6 he for s time aban
doned mechanioal pursuits and engaged
in merchandising at a point just oppo
site the present Cotton Exchange build
ing. Fiom this be returned to bis more
favored calling of a mechanic, and en
tered upon tbe than advancing business
of railroad building. He waa engaged
in the construction of the A. 3t N. C. R.,
tbe Charlotte & Atlanta, tbe Norfolk &
Southern, and tbe Smithfield branch of
! the A. & N. C. B., and at the time of
bis decease was preparing to go on the
Onslow railroad. He was for many
years connected with tbe A. & N. C, R
in bridge building, track laying, etc.
A more competent man in this line of
work is but seldom found.
Mr. Roberson was of decided views
on all subjects of popular discipline,
and in politics a firm and pronounced
Democrat, but in the political field be
seldom sought anything for himself,
but was always glad to aid a friend in
He had been Justice of the Peaoe in
this county, and in tbe memorable
campaign of 1870 no one worked harder
to accomplish the results of that cam
paign than he. For this be was honored
as Sergeant-at-Arms of tbe State Senate
and as such was the officer in charge of
the court of impeachment whioh tried
the charges against his old-time friend
and co-laborer, W. W. Holden.
Mr. Roberson was well and widely
known during the war as a ship builder,
and was busily at work on the various
gunboats constructed in this State.
He was a firm friend, a loving hus
band and devoted father. He has gone
from us, and while the untimely death
must grieve, let us cherish his memory
and cast the mantle of charity over bis
faults whatever they may have been.
CONTAGIOUS BLOOD DISEASES.
Ulcers, sores, pimples, itch, salt
rheum, etc., are evidences of contagious
blood disease. It is manifestly a duty
to eradicate blood poison from the sys
tem by a use of B. B. B. (Botanio Blood
Balm), thus enabling the sore places to
heal, and thereby removing all possi
bility of other members of the family
becoming likewise afflicted. Send to
Blood Balm Co., Atlanta, Ga., for book
that will oonvince.
J. H. Outlaw, Mt. Olive, N. C,
writes: "I bad running sores on my
shoulders and arms. One bottle B. B.
B. cured me entirely."
L. Johnson. Belmont Station, Miss.,
wiites: "B. B. B. has worked on me
like a charm. My head and body was
covered with sores, and my hair came
out, but B. B. B. healed me quickly."
W. J. Kinnin, Butchens, Tex., write
B. B. B. has cured my wife of a large
ulcer on her leg that doctors and all
all other medicine could not cure."
M. J. Roesman. a prominent merchant
of Greensboro, Ga., writes: "I know of
several cases of blood disease speedily
cured by B. B. B. Two bottles cured
a lady of ugly scrofulous skin sores."
W. C. Blrohmore & Co., Maxey. Ga.:
write: "B. B. B. in curing Mr. Robt,
Ward of blood poison effected one of
the most wonderful cures that ever
came to our knowledge."

It is said that any ore wbicb shows gold

of this kind, however, in Concord, for

considerable gold was taken.
Raleizh News and Observer: Tbe
Richmond Times of Sunday says: "Prof.
James Dinwiddie, of Gordonsville, Va.,
will succeed John B. Burwell, of Peace
Institute, Baleigh. Mr. Burwell suc
ceeded his father as principal of the
Charlotte female Institute, which in
stitution he resigned control of about
the year 1870, to take charge of tbe
Peace Institute in Raleigh, which under
biB charge became one of the leading
schools ot the South." We are in
formed that Prof. Dinwiddie has leased
Peace Institute from Mr. Burwell and
will conduct it as at present. He is an
exceptionally scholarly and polished
man and is an able and distinguished
educator, bearing a high reputation
among Virginia educators.
Pneumonia in New York.
Tbe worst treatment ior a heavy cold
is "letting it alone," and tbe next
worse is dosing with drugs and crude
mixtures. The great want then is, a
particular specific to allay fever: arrest
congestion and inflammation and pre
vent extension of - tho disease of the
lungs. Now, since reports from various
parts of the country are to tbe effect
that the above disease is on the increase,
and to prevent its assuming a malig
nant type if attacked, we would recom
mend two of .the most highly endorsed
remedies in the country, Humphreys'
Specifics Nos. One and Seven. Hun
dreds of people taken with cough and
influenza (and symptoms of what are
now termed "La Grippe" and Pneumo
nia have been speedily and permanently
cured by them. No. One allays tbe
fever, pain and inflammation, while
No. Seven gets in its good work upon
the cough, hoarseness and sore throat.
Hundreds of publishers, having found
these Specifics of priceless value in their
family, never hesitate to recommend
them to their many readers. Ex.
