An immense gathering of the citi zens of New Borne went to tho A. oV; N. C. R. R. sation yesterday af 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 ning tho championship bolt they had reflected groat honor upon New Heme, and it was fitting that sever al hundred ladies, gentlemen and children, should welcome them back home. 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 Miss Lena Dail, Mascot of the New Berne Steam Fire Engine Company, Mayor Primrose and Editor Stevens, of the JOL'KKAL. New Berue Company's Hose wag on. Tho Atlantic Reel Team, W. T. McCarthy, Captain, Champions of 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 the Team. Three cheers for A. M. B;tkcr was proposed by dipt. McCarthy, ami the boys responded lustily. Upon arriving at the Chattawka Ilotc', the Champions lined up in the middle of the street, facing the balcony of the hotel, to which the beautiful youug ladies, who are the Mascots of the Fire Companies, Presi dent Clark, D. L. Ward, Esq., Edi tor Stevens aud Mayor Primrose had ascended. As soon as some of the bells and whistles had ceased ringing and blowing, Mr. D. I. Ward stepped forward and made an eloquent ad dress of welcome. The generous applause abating some, Capt. Mct Carthy and members of tho Team gave three rousing cheers for the speaker. President Clark then proposed three cheers for the Atlantic Reel Team. It is needless to say that the proposal met with the heartiest re sponse. The Reel Team and a few friends then proceeded to the City Had. where some light refreshments were partaken of. and a social time was passed. Mayor Pi im rose and the New Beruo Jorits'Ai. were each given three cheers by the crowd, aud a jolly half hour wa-J enjoyed. The city was in most exuberant spirits lust night, and the Reel Team boys had what they wanted, with out the asking. 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 people keew, hardly, that there was another Fire Company in Salisbury cioept the New Berne Company. Neariy every young lady in the town was wearing the colors of Now Berne, pink and white, and seemed to take New Heine's defeat as much tn heart as the boys did thetiHelve--. They seemed to realize the fit lhat New Berne's Team was the Yarn of the State. "The Boys even in defeat retained their courage and were light hearted and merry. "They had elegant boarding places and they were very enthusias tic in their praise of the place and people with whom they stopped, and upon inquiry at their respec tive boarding places I found that they were looked upon as a very quiet and gentlemanly crowd, and that they regretted their leaving. In fact, taking everything into consid eration, it was the most gentleman ly crowd that ever attended a Tour nament, ind New Berne ehoul 1 be proud of them. "A goodly number, members oi the Company, attended the Tourna ment ball giren on the night of the 21st., talcing with, them their little Salisbury Mascott, Miss Virginia Mauney, and were delighted to find at least four-fifths of the ladies at- PiDk Uow did you lose the quick steam ing contest!'' "On account of our desire to low er our own recLHtd. As for winning (i reensboro, that would have been easy enough, but for our over anxio-t- to li'-a". our own record, and that seemed to be generally known by all present, even Greensboro. "I think that the city should never spare pains or expense in keep ing the engine in good condition al ways, which has not been done for the last two years, I am wry sorry to have to say. 1 think at the next Tournament the quick (-teaming prize will come to New Berne again to never leave it. " 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 it started. 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 tificates. 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. In September the green of summer fades a little, the more fragile and tender ol the leaves begin to fall like flakes of an advancing snowstoiru. In October the tree8 turn golden and red and glorious, the leaf storm is full on, the dying foli age ce see i.i.s the cariii will in bit i in.

Waste material frequently proves to be worth mere than the thing it is the waste of. This is true of the by products of petroleum. At first refiners of the oil were put to their wits' end to know what to do with the dreadful refuse cast off in making the kerosene for illumi nating oil. It seemed to spoil everything it touched and filled the air with nau seous oelors besides. By and by they be came wise r. They learned to utilize one afteT another these waste products of kercscne. Now naphtha, benzine, gaso line, vaseline and a dozen or more much valued medicines are distilled from the once useless and unsightly rub bish. Everything is of use when its use is found. Even some useless people could probably be made of service if their right place could be ascertained. Don't lose your bankbook. A judge of the supreme court of Ne-w York has decided that when a bankbook is pre sented at the bank which issued it tbe mone y it calls for shall lawfully be paid to the brare-r unless there are circum itances accompanying the presentation if the book that lceik suspicious. This decision will no doubt be followed else where. Therefore if you lose your bank lxek, the cue who finds it may collect four money and the bank not be held responsible.

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 walked. "Waal, is tho corpse upthar?" asked Judge Watkins. "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. "Well," queried the man as I looked about, "things look sorter lonesome, eh?" "Indeed they do, sir. What's been the matter with your" "Billyus fever. " "Where is the wife?" "Inside the house with the same thing." "And the children?" ' 'Out thar behind that haystack shakin with the ager. ' ' "I see you've lost your mule. " ' 'Died two clays ago, sir. Can't rightly say what ailed him, but he's gone. " "I suppose you are dead broke on top of all?' ' I queried. "Haven't got a red cent, sir, and nuthin but cornmeal in tho house," he replied. "Well, I don't blame you for feeling blue over the situation. " "Who's a-felm blue?" "Why, I expect you are." "Then you make a big mistake, stranger. Things did look a leetle blue Made and Merit Maintains the confidence of the people in Hood's Sarsaparilla.

"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 ness. " "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," "What happened?" "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!" M. Qcad. 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 iarge, " She was his from that moment. Cleveland Post.
