An immense gathering of the citi
zens of New Borne went to tho A.

ternoon to meet the Atlantic Reel
Team, which is still the champion
team of North Carolina. Tho boys
had covered themselves with glory
in the Salisbury races and in win

had reflected groat honor upon New

al hundred ladies, gentlemen and
children, should welcome them back
Amidst great cheering, waving of
hankerchiefs, hats and canes, blow
ing whistles and ringing bolls, the
members of tho team alighted from
the train and immediately a line of
march was formed as follows:
Miss Pearl Powell, the Mascot of
the Atlantic Reel Team, wearing
the championsnip belt; W. W.
Clark, President of the Reel Team;
and D. L. Ward, Esq., the orator
of he occasion in the first carriage".
In the next carriage were seated

North Carolina, followed by long
line of citizenp.
Along the line of march great
numbers of citizens had assembled
to cheer the heroes. Flags were
waved from windows as the proces
sion passed, and during the whole
parade the caliope whistle of the
New Berne Ice company could be
distinguished amongst the din and
confusion of the other whistles and
bells, and noise of the drums.
Cheer after cheer rent the air
during the march, but when the
procession reached A. M. Baker's
store, nothing could be heard but
the popping of thousands of fire
crackers, which that clever mer
chant had touched off in honor of
Three cheers for A. M. B;tkcr was
proposed by dipt. McCarthy, ami
the boys responded lustily.

Chief Barrlnrloa Interviewed.
Talking with the JoL'it.ww. about
the Salisbury trip, Chief Barrington
said, i st night :
"I don't b iieve that the S.i! i.-'onry

and upon inquiry at their respec

they regretted their leaving. In
fact, taking everything into consid
eration, it was the most gentleman

proud of them.
"A goodly number, members oi

About the C learing House.
The Ix'St illustration cf how millions
of dollars' worth of commercial transac
tions can be conducted with the actual
trnnsfer of very little cash indeed is
probably to be seen iu the operations of
a clearing house in a great city. The
greatest part of its work of course con
sists in the balancing, exchanging and
reconveying to their original senders
bank checks and other certificates of in
debtedness and readiness to pay.
A. owes B. f 1,000. A. does not carry
so muc h money around with, hiru as a
general thing. So he gives B. a check on
his bank for the money. It is not con
venient forB. to go to A. 's bank and col
lect the money. He simply deposits the
check for $1,000 in his own bank, which
may be 100 miles distant from A. 's
baDk. B. 's bank lets him have the ac
tual money if he wants it, either all in
a lump or in installments. But B. 's bank
sends A. 's f 1,000 check to the clearing
house. There, where all the accounts of
all the banks belonging to the clearing
house are . squared up, A. 's check is re
ceived and 6ent back to A. 's bank whence
The check may not be cashed so soon,
however. It may be handed by B. over
to somebody to whom he in turn owes
money and put by that person into his
particular bank. Sooner or later, how
ever, it returns to the clearing house. A
few of the largest cities of the Union
have clearing houses of their own. Such
houses in the west send checks, certifi
cates, etc. ,. to the clearing houses of the
eastern cities and those of the east re
turn, western accounts in like manner.
Before the clearing house methods
were adopted banks used to settle their
accounts with one another by sending
from one to another messengers loaded
with bags of money and commercial pa
per. It was a clumsy and risky way of
doing business, and now they simply
send their commercial paper either on
tbe debit cr credit side to the clearing
house, where the accounts arc rapidly
balanced between banks and each re
ceives back its own paper.
The largest clearing house in this
country is in New York, where paper
representing $120,000,000 sometimes
changes hands in a single day, that, too,
with tho exchange of verv little cash
money. Sixty-six banks belong to the
New York Clearing House association,
and during the panic of 1893 they made
a compact that they would support one
another when an inconveniently large
demand was made on ihe deposits of
any one of them. They did this by
means of the issue of clearing house cer
In the Fall.
We observe that some hypercritical
individual is again objecting to the
word "fall" to designate the time of
year which our British brethren usually
name "autumn." The hypercritical in
dividual is simply Billy. If there is one
word which ii rightly u?ed in the Eng
Jish language it is the term "fall" tc
denote the mcuths cf September, Octo
ber and November. It is a whole poem
in itself, thut word "fall," thus used.
It means the time of the fall of the leaf.

I SKETCHES BY M.QUA1)
Nobody Was a Gentleman.
On1) day a stranger came into our
camp end looked around for awhile and
finally asked if we had a man of sand
among us. Judge Watkius promptly an
swered that we had a mau who wasn't
afraid of anything above or on or below
the earth, and sent a man down to the
"TOU Ali' WAX TIX A FUSS.''
creek after Bill Hopkins. When Bill
came up, the stranger looked him over
and queried :
"Ar' you a fighter?"
"I ar'," modestly replieel Bill.
"Hcv you got a record?"
"I hcv. I've lickeel every critter who
has dared stand before mo from Grassy
Valley to Ace High."
"But ar' you a gentleman as well as
a fighter?" persisted tho stranger.
"Of course I ar'!" said Bill, "and I'd
like to see the blamed galoot who says
I hain't! But what's that got to do
with it, and what's all this riot about?"
"I'm wantin to come across a critter
with sand," replied the stranger, in soft
and oily tones.
"You ar' wantin a fuss?"
"I ar'. but the feller must bo a gen
tleman, same as I ar'. No gentleman
ever fights with a loafer. "
"Waal, I don't see why we can't git
together, " said Bill, "but I don't see
the objick exactly."
"The objick is to lick you!"
"Oh, shear'! Well, fix things your
own way, and I'll be on hand!"
After consulting with Judge Watkins
and others, the stranger arranged mat
ters. He w anted to fight Bill rough and
tumble and ho wanted the two of them
to go up on the hill after dark and have
it out alone. The boys demurred to this,
aa they wanted to see the fun, but Bill
Hopkins said it should be that way. As
he understood matters, gentlemen al
ways went off by themselves to settle
disputes. If the stranger was a gentle
man, he couldn't afford to do anything
else. He'd lick him out of his boots in
five minutes, but he'd lick him as one
gentleman should lick another.
Thus it came about that the pair went
off together up the hill after dark, each
one bowing and scraping and trying to
outdS-he other in gentility. They were
to take position ten rods apart, and at a
signal from camp were to rush together.
When Jhe battle was over, the victor was
to hoot and we would go up and bring
down the mangled remains of the van
quished. The signal was given as agreed,
but at tho end of an hour no one had
hooted. We had just starteel to go up
when Bill came, down to us. There were
fears in his eyes, his back was humped
up, anel he dragged his legs as he
"Waal, is tho corpse upthar?" asked
"Nary a corpse. "
"Didn't nobody get licked?"
"No. The feller slid out unbeknown
to me before you gin the signal, and
thar was nuthin fur me to fight!"
"The durned skunk! Why, he said
he was a gentleman!"
"Yes, he said that. "
&xia we guaranteed him tnat you
was a gentleman. "
"Yes. I hain't had nuthin hurt my
feelm s like this fur 20 years!
"I should say not. Gentleman, the
meeting will now come to order. Now
then 'Wh'aras one feller who said he
was a gentleman has sneaked out of a
fight with another feller whom we all
know to bo a gentleman ; be it
"'Kesolved, That Bill Hopkins ar'
no longer a gentleman and hain't got
no cause fur feelin bad about it!' "
Tho preamble and resolution were
unanimously adopted and Bill wiped
his tears away, braced np his feelings
and was soon himself again.
Things Were Going: to Tarn.
Iii front of a Dakota sod cabin sat a
man about 50 years old, who was ragged
and forlorn and hungry looking. A few
rods away lay the dead body of a mule,
and beyond that was a wagon with a
broken wheel. There was no smoke
coming out of the cabin chimney, no
fowls or live stock about and no other
human being to be seen.

about, "things look sorter lonesome,

How Sam Met the Elephant.
"No; my son Sam didn't dio of no
sickness, " replied tho mountaineer to
my question, which was brought eiut by
his observing that ho had lost a son tho
year before. "What ailed Sam was sot
"Yon moan he was obstinate?"
"That's it; only niobbo a lettlo wuss.
He'd do what ho sot out to do if it killed
him, and it finally did kill him.
"Yes, sah. One day a cirkis was
passin up this yore road to go over into
North Kerrleeny. Sam he was up at tho
Co ners and had bin drinkin too much.
Bimeby ho made ready to start fur
homo on his mewl. Tho men at the
Co'nors knowed he'd meet the cirkis and
tried to hold him baek, but tho mo' they
talked tho sotter he got. It had got
around that thar was an elephant, and
Sam said he'd drive the critter outer the
road or bust hissclf. "
"And he mct the circus on the road?"
"He did, sah. That elephant was
marcbin in front, and from all accounta
he wasn't feelin very peart that day.
When them cirkis fellers saw Sam, they
hollered fur him to go back, but Sam
throweel off his hat and veiled beck to
'em to stanel clear anel see fair play.
Thar's whar his sotness cum in. Drat
him, but he ortor knowed that he'd be
licked. Ho hollered and cavorted till ho
got that elephant downright mad, and
then ho put spurs to his mewl and
"TIIEOWED 'KM TEN THOUSAXrj FEET HIGH."
charged him. He meant to sweep that
elephant right off the face of the airth,
but suthin happened to astonish him,"
"Waal, as nigh as I could ever make
out that elephant picked up both Sam
and his mewl and throwed 'em 10,000
feet high, and when they cum down ho
walked on 'em fur about ten minits.
The cirkis fellers got about a bushel of
mewl arter the fuss was over, but they
couldn't scrape up more'n a neck of
Sam, and that was most boots. What
we got we buried, and that's how Sam
cum to git underground. No, he didn't
die of any sickness not any reg'lar
sickness with a name to it. He jest
tried to run down an elephant, and if
he ever knowed anything arter he went
sky high he must hev bin painfully
hurt in his ieelm's to nnd out that he'd
bumped agin the hull Cumberland
mountings. Pore Sam!"
How He Caught Her.
He had begged her to be his, and she
had treated the request in a manner
that suggested frivolity.
"Why do you use rattrap pedals?"
he reproachfully asked her as she pre'
pared to mouMt her wheel.
"Why shouldn't I?" she exclaimed,
"I should think," he softly murmur
ed as he gazed at her dainty feet,
"that mousetraps would be amply
