to the 4'ily Suburbs
A few more names have been added to
(he list of subscribers to the telephone
service, increasing the total number to
sixty. About time-fourth of the houses
taking the service so far ate business
The construction of the system is going
forward w ith all dispatch possible under
the charge of Mr. H. Hawkins of Fayette
ville. It will reach even to tho city limits.
Moody's mill, the wattr works, H. S.
Huion's residence and Wm. Dunn's
farm, ate among those that will use it.
The rates established are thirty dollars
per annum for business places and fnteen
dollars for residences. The payments
will be collccud quarterly.
It is earnestly desired to secure all the
names poss'ib'e at once, so that all can be
included iu the line us first run. The
rales are lower than nmst towns have and
while the list seems p-etly lair for a first
start, we hope to se other names spiedily
added. It would not take many walks
of a servant, employee, or ofa housekeeper
or business man himself iu a month's time
to morn than offset the small rental that
ischaig. d. Time is valuable and a good
le'i-phonc service is a an admirable time
The system is expeeUd to be in oiera
tion about the first of October.

the construction of good roads will ma

Tiie above is an extract from the Fi
nancial and Industrial Kecord. It contains
good sound, hard, common-sense. If any
one wants an illustration of the way a
good road attracts travel and a bad one
repels it, he has but to notice the pleas
ure drives taken by our citizens. One of
the favorite drives at any time is the one
by the tnacailami.; I road out to Messrs.
Hackhuru & Willett's Oiks Farm. About
the time the volunteer work on N uise
road was per'ormod the farm would gen
erallyjlie reached by one of the roads ami
the return made by the other, but. at that
time the work upon Xeuse -road was not
finished while the latter built by Messrs
Ilackburn & Willett was. The result is,
onejis a good road today while tho other
is again geltin; bad to travel over, es
pecially durug rainy spells. The conse
quence is the good road is generally used
both in goim; and coming-.
UnUss the giading and draining work
that has been done on Keuse road is fol
lowed up quickly by proper macndainiz
ing, what has already be' n accomplished
will largely be lost. There has been too
much delay already. The fact that t he
portion of Xeuse road beyond the A & N
O 11 R. though far from being up to what
we would like to see ir, is nevertheless
fairly good as compared with the natural
condition of the part upon which con
templated improvements have been half
made, should be an additional incentive
fjr its completion. Awake on the subject
lii:ll.E PROFIT IX UOOD ROADS.
They Save Time and Team. Make a
Neifrhborlioml More Desirable to
Live In unit Increase tbe Talne of
Feople, as a rule, but little realize how
much is lost, not only in pleasure but in
profit, by bad roads. Before Messrs.
Hackburn & Willett macadamized their
road, from six to eight hundred pounds
would have been a good load per horse.
Xow Irom fourteen hundred pounds to a
ton can be as easily taken. This saves at
h ast one driver, one cart and one horse.
And when the wages of the man, the
keeping of the horse and the wear of the
vehicles is counted, how long would it
tiike a mau who is using a public road to
get back the portion of expenditure that
falls to his share in getting it iu prime
condition and maintaining it so? It can
le borne iu miud that once having been
put in first class order the after expense
will be comparatively light.
Again, roads should be kept in uniform
first class condition throughout their
length. As the weakest place in a chain
is the correct lest of its strength, even So
the worst place in a road is the correct
standard of its condition, If a road is
twenty mihs long and two miles of it is
in such condition that only half a load
can be hauled over that portion, that hall
load is all that can be carried in making
the journey of the road's lengths, no mat
ter how good the rest ol the way raav

If people would but stop and calculate
and consider the worry and li s-i and cost
had rciul- are to them, and what a pleas
ure as well as saving good road- would
be. a road tax would bo one ot the taxes
they would pay most cheerfully.
It is a patent fact," says the New
York World "that the Cubans are in
every sense belligerents, making the same
struggle for f reedom and independeiK o
that Americans made in 177C." If this is
ttue, w hy should Americans be arrested
for trying to assist them ! There are
many lure in Xorth Carolina who would
be glad to help the Cuban iusurgeuts if
they could be recognized as belligerents.

TIIK ROAD TAX LAW.
Some ot lip Tilings lor Whiili it I'ro

Elerliou on it.
On Tuesday, November 5th. th.; first
Tuesday in the month, the voters of Cra
ven county are to have an opportunity of
saying wheller they will continue the
present system of working the toads by
the labor of those living alo.ig them, or
whether they wll change the system so
that hercalter there slia.l lie a tax levied
of not over 45 cents on the poll
and not over 15 cents on Hie one hundred
dollars worth of taxable property to be ap
plied to keeping up the roads. We are,
glad to see that the law if canied provides
also for working convicts on the mads. If
a given amount is taken and applied to
the support and guarding ofa loice of
convicts while they are at work more be
expected to be accomplished with a given
amount of money than if expended on the
road in any other w ay.
The act providing for this election was
originally dratted to apply only to Jones.
Hyde, Wake, Polk and Pamlico counties.
It was afterwards made to apply to i
Craven by a section a ided at the end j
of it. " j
A very curious provision of the portion j
relating to Craven county is that the peo-1
pie of Xew Heine are to be allowed to'
vote m the election and yet they ate not '
to pay any portion of the tax either or, f
poll or property. It givrsthem the right
to vote a tax on others which they them-1
selves do not have to shoulder. This is 1
uottaxition without representation, but!
a reversal of it ; it is ie;iesci,talion with-I
out taxation ! It docs not seem to be a j
fair tiling to do, but that is the way tho!
legislature tixed it.
The reasons given for exempting t lie
city from taxes is that those living in town
are taxed to keep up twenty two miles of
streets and that is road tax enough for
theui and the reason rendered fur allowing
them to vote is, that many of the people
living in the city own country properly
aud consequently are (liivetly interested
in every question pertaining to it.

Oh, it was a dream I had
While the musician played
And here the sky and here the glad
Old ocean kissed the glade.
And here the laughing ripples ran,
And here the roses grew
That threw a kiss to every mau
That voyaged w ith the crew.
Our silken sails in lazy folds
Drooped in the breathless breeze,
As o'er a field of marigolds
Our eyes swam o'er the seas.
While here lh eddies lisped and purled
Around the island's rim,
And up from out the underwold
We saw the mermen swim.
i And it was dawn and middle day
And midnight lor the my mi
On silver rounds across the bay
Had climbed the skies of June,
And here the glowing, rhuions king
Of day ruled o'er the realm.
With stars of midnight littermi;
About his diadem.
The seagull reeled on hu did wing
In circles round the inasi;
We heard the songs the sirens sing
As we went nailing past,
Aud up and down tbe g"lden s.ihds
A thousand fairy Huongs
Flung at us Irom their Hashing hands
The echoes of their songs.
