Try to F.ntcr a Bed-Room of
Kcne Tucker Residence by
JIcanH ol n Ladder.
"We hear of another attempted burglary
and a pretty daring one. It was an at
tempt to enter the residence of Mr. Eugene
Tucker. The down-stair windows were
all fastened and the burglar or burglars
by nuans of a ladder found on the prem
ises, after trying below attempted entrance
through an upstair window, which opened
into the ljeil ro.-m occupied by Mr. Tuck
et's daughters Misses lnl'tha and Maggie
and two small ehildten.
Some of tliein being awake the noise of
the window being raised was noticed. On
looking in that direction the window was
sien to bo rai-e. 1 and one of the young
ladies gave a call for her f.ithir.
'Ihe burglar then dropped the window
and h urrie-dly escaped. Mr. Tucker rush
ed to the window but he was goue.
Those have been small burglaries in
some of the towns in the State recently
and it seems as if New Berne is now to
have hej turn; any how, in view of the few
attempts that have already been it will be
well enough for our citizons to keep some
liind of a shooting iron convenient so as
to give the burglars a loud should, they
receive a visit from them.
90 Per Cent Hatched.
As is generally known in hatching
chickens by incubators, testers are used
! socm after the eggs are placed in the ma-;
! chines which determine what eeus are I
fertile and eapab'e of hatching and what
ones are not, and all are then rejected ex
cept those that show up aright. In the
recent uial with the Homer City incuba
tor at the Oak's Poultry liirm 90 per cent
of the fertile egos left were hatched out
successfully and the others were found
upon examination to contain yoene;
chickens. Mr. John K. Henry who at
tendee! to the machines, believes that tin so
also would have been hatchid all right
but lor the Ir. quent opening of the incu
bator to .-how visitors how it worked

Situation and Art Accordlnirly.
We recently made mention of some very
line tobae co raised by tenants of C. II.
t Foy in Jones county and told of the rapid
increase of attention to tobacco culture ,
and its successful results in Lenoir county. ;
' ILo-mau I.. Woolen was in to see us Tues- :
: day. and Irom what lie tells us this county
aUo lias maele a gooj start in the matter.
. He gives us the following list ot fanners
w ho put in small acreages of tobacco this
'season and what he thinks the crop of,
each one is: :
At Fort Barnwell thcr--, are the follow-j
ing grow ers, fl. P. liartlcy;! acre-, 2.000
i pounds; another additional acre, l.tNM);
p0ulJ(j.. jj c. Davis. 20 acres, 10,000
,)ouu,)s; J. L. Gaskill. 3 acres, 2,000
pounds. Besides those at Foit Barnwell,
he kDOWS nf the following: Terrace West
. ... o nnil ioimrls- ttidinrd White 4
2.0(H) pounds; Murphy Taylor. 4 1
acres. 2,000 pounds a toUil of 21,000 I
Air. v ooten nad tne suiiervision oi cur-
ing Mr. Hartley's tobacco anil he speaks i
ot it as remarkably tine. None ot it has
. i.'.i.i.. xt c.-.
been sold yet but he says that intelligent
judges of gooel tobacco says it was ahead
of any that was sold at the Kinston tobac
co market opening.
This tobacco is of some special kind
but Mr. Wooten did not remember the
name ot the variety. It is of large leaf
and is line and silky, well adapted to
making cigars. Some of it has been tried
in that way anel found to work easily.
One of the leaves measured was two feet
and eight inches in length and a foot and
a half m width.
i Such re-ults as these show what we
'. have claimed before that we have lands
! tinely adapted to the raising of tobacco
j and it only requires properly directed
j effort to add that product to the others
that are grown here.
Now that the value of our lands for to
bacco crops has been thus practically ele
monstrateil, we look for its culture to
increase rapidly. If New Berne business
men are wise they will, before another sea
son, erect a large warehouse and prize
house here, and send out encouragement
to the farmers to plant tobac:o and mark
et it here. Instruction as to varieties, grow
ing and turing can also be sent out.
We are satisfied that Craven and ad
joining counties are just on the eve of
devoting their attention to this industry
to a pretty large extent. Much of it will
be raised where New Berne will be the
handiest market for it. If opportunities
lor marketing it here awe afforded, it will
bring thousands of dolh.rs in, and the
bulk of the money will be spent as the
tobacco is housed.
If the market is not provided here the
farmers must, perforce, seek a tOivn that
does have buyers and selling conven
iences. We put the matter before our mer
chants plainly and look for something to
grow out of it. It is a matter in which a
board of trade could do splendid work.
ATLANTIC HOTEL WtXT SEASON.
To be Ran by Two Wilson Men To
Keep tbe ItfaniMrenient In Home
Hands Is Commendable.
-Tt is understood that Messrs. Geo. D.
Green and Frank W. Barnes, of Wilson,
w ho are big stockholders in the Atlantic
Hotel at Morehead City, will be the man
agers at that rtsort next season. This
will insur; that the hotel will be better
kept next year than ever before."
The above item is from the Xews and
Observer We are always glad to see the
Hotel in charge of our own people. The
mere lact that they are men who are here
with us continually irspires a confidence
at once on the part of intending guests
that is not felt when some unkQown dis
tant manager (who is most likely to be
simply a bird ot a season) is in charge,
although his coming is heralded with great
Possibly there is an idea, on the part of
the directors anel stockholders that when
a man is secured from some other S:ate,
he will most likely, influence and bring
outside patronage to the hotel, but we
doubt this. Tlie hotel W there, its super
ior location, huge size, abundant conven
iences and ever-present cutside enjoyments
are widely known and we believe a home
management, changed as little as possible,
will create an abiding confidence both
throughout our own State and in others
that will be conducive of tlie hotel's high
est prosperity. There have len no better
seasons at the hotel than when just such
men as are proposed for next season will
be in charge. Another reason for feeling
peifectly satisfied that Messrs. Green and
Birnes will do everything possible to
please everv guest, is that they are stock-
holelers and will have the future good of
the hotel at In art as well as the patronage
ot the running season.
TIIK IMPROVEMENTS FINISHED
At the New Berne Water Works -The
ClianircM MaUe antl What They Will
1 he improvements at the water works
arc now completed. The changes that
have been made are as follows:
Air-clnmbcrs have been put in every
where that they can be of use and the
main pipe has been lowered to a depth of
three to fourjieet in the ground.
The object of lowering this pipe is to
make it so that the water w ill flow of its
own accord from the Willi to it, thus
' ketnintf it full all the time, and making it
j s0 that instead of having to to pump out
I of the wells when pump pressure is wan-
i ted at unv time, the water will be-alreadv
in the main line waiting to be pumped
out and thus save the time in starting I
a i.i .k ....oi, - i. .,,i. i !
.iiih.'UkII woi 13 vlo a uiiuiiicu auu llieiiu
feet in depth the water rises in fourofthem
almost to the top. This makes it so that
the lowering of the main pipe and the
corresponding depression of the pipes
leading from the wells to it, gives the
! now 0l water Uiat ls desired,
I TT,.rptofoi-fi nir chambers have lon used
i only at the oumos. There is now one at
every well and one on the suction line.
The main one is twelve feet long and 13
inches in diameter; the others are si in
ches in diameter and and vary from about
four to seven feet in length.
There is air inwater. Now, what
ever air is in it will pass into the air
chambers instead of into the pumps and
enable a larger volume to be thrown with
a given amount of work.

as well as of the two wells added are

TIIF. NEW WOMAN.
The shade of night were falling fast.
As through the crowded streets there
' A er. ai ui'e not to be described,
Wlio bore aloft a shield inseTiled
'The new woman."
! Her trousers were a litlle wide
I And just a trille short lieside,
j As forward on her wheel she dashed,
i While on the startled vision flashed
j Tlie new woman.
I Her brow with evening dew was drench-
i Yet tight the handle bar she clenched,
And never dropped the banuei bold
u Inch showed alike to young ami old
The new woman.
Oh. stay," the young man said, "and
Vour weiry head upon my breast.
You surely cannot further go!"
A voice replied, "You do not know
The new woman."
''Avoid this path,-' the old man called.
"IU danger have strong men appall-ed.'-
Again a proud cry Hoa'ed back,
"Y'ou can't keep in the lieaten track
The new woman."
"Beware the politician's fate
And turn back ere it is too late.''
Rut ever high above the din
"Come w hat come may, this vote
The new woman.' ''
The timid crowd bewildered sat,
Antl many sighed, "Where are we at?"
One man was bold enough to try
To follow where Ixfore did fly
The new woman.
All night lie rode through darkness
And ever anxious glances cast,
ut sped of his could not avail
To catch upon her dia.y trail
The new woman.
And when at last tlie morning broke
In bitterness these words he spoke,
'Tis plain I'm distanced, and the race
Is hers by right of rapiil pace,
The new woman."

What if the merry maiden goes a-riding
on the wheel.
And wears a graceful costume that is
short above the hre
Can any one gainsay it, that though chan
ged in mode of dress.
She's of the gender feminine, anel not a
whit the less?
Aud it she does the bloomer or !he knick-er-bocker
Is not her person just as sweet as any
What if the college maiden rows a shell or
sculls with oar,
r takes a goal in fooihall-field or !owl
Is she any less a woman if her skin is very J
Than when she trailed her skirts in mud j
nnel wore a high-necked gown? !
And if she boxes out her foe or lem e - like
Iacks she any fascination, wliate'r her
schemw or plan?

For every ten of marriages nine are full
The very latest woman, with her muscle,

May bring new joys to wedded life and
give us better luck.
Of one thing I am certain, from the widest
range of view
Old-fashioned types must stand aside and
make way for the new.
The kissy girl, the hnggy girl who, must
lie loved or die,
The modest girl, the too sweet g!rl, have

She is my only girl.

For all unfinished was love's jeweled
Till set with this soft pearl.
The shadow time brought forth I could
How pure, how perfect seemed the gift to
Oh, many a soft old tune

And suffered not the slightest footsteps
Lost she might wake too soon.
And hushed her brothers' laughter as she
Ah, needless care! I might have let them

That tliia one daughter might not speak

How willingly deceived.
Vain love was long the untiring nurse of

For one short hour till I her tongue might
To call me mother in the broken speech
That thrills the mother's ear!
Alas, those sealed lips never may 1 stir
red To the sweet music of that holy word.
My heart it sorely tries
To see her kneel with such a rev'rent
Beside her brothers at their evening
Or lift those earnest eyes
To watch our lips, as though our words
Then move her own, as Bhe were speak
I've watched her loolriDg up
To the bright wonder of a sunset sky
With such a depth of meaning in her
That I could almost kope
The struggling soul would burst it3 bind
And the long pent up soul flow forth in
Tbe song of bird and bee.
The chorus of the breezes, streams and
All the grand music to which nature
Are wasted melody
To her, the world Of sound a tameless
While even silence hath its charm de
stroyed. Her face Is very fair;
Her blue eyes !eiiutifui, of finest mold,
The soft white brow, o'er which in waves
Ripples her shining hair.
Alas, this lovely temple closed must

For joy to enter and for love to usel
