TUM SX2VATORIAI. CONTEST.
The contest for the Seuatorship.
which will be decided by the State
Assembly early in 1S97, is the polit
ical issue just now, and it will con
tinue to provoke considerable dis
cussion in North Carolina, until the
question is definitely determined by
the election of a Senator.
The usual political inconsistency
seems to eoatinae in thte contest ae
in all poHtkal fights in North Caro
lina, the 2i etc-Observer, strict Dem
ocratic party organ, and the Cau
casian strict Senator lit. tier's or
gan, both opposing the reelection of
the present Senator, J. C. Pritch
ard. Why a strict Democratic party
organ, such as the Xe t-- Ubscrrer
claims to be, should exhibit any in
tense personal interest in the defeat
of an opposite party man, while its
Own party is in a minority, mnst be
a question to all Democrats, es pec
iallv as Senator Pritchard's return
to the United States Senate can
prove no worse to Democratic inter
ests than the election of any other
man of opposite party views.
The Caucasian position eimph
voices Senator Batler, who is striv
ing to continue in control of North
Carolina politics for his individual
political advancement, regardless of
all' else, and it is his purpose to
drive the Populist members of tne
next State Assembly to follow his
dictatorship in this Senatorial mat
ter. While the Democrats are a minor
ity party jn the next State Assem
bly, yet they can win for thems. '.ye
an enviable reputation, and do very
much for their party's future, by the
coarse they pursue, and their politi
cal action ought to be along purely
Democratic lines, with no deah.

A HAD SHOW I i
The recent r. p.n t of
urer Worth for the rise.i
nine December 1st last,
the farmers of North Carolina have
purchased t he i nornious am on n t of
l.il.t'.t o tons of com mei c;a! fertili
zers. It is in this one item alone, fertil
izer?, that the farmers of the State
show a woful lack of economy, for
it cannot bo denied that a very large
amount of expense could have been
saved to the farmers by a little work
on their part by making their own
The very convt nitt.ee of the coir.'
mercial fertilizer makes it a danger
ous foe to the farmer who is at all
procrastinating, for after delaying
in the fall and winter to make his
compost heaps, with spring work
engaging his attentiou, the farmer
at once turns to the manufacturer
of fertilizers and orders what he
And then the commercial fertili
zer is such a stimulant to the soil,
that only the steady, thrifty farmer
turna resolutely away from its pur
chase, and is satisfied to make his
soil productive by means of his own
manufacture which he lias always at
Not only does this immense pur
chase of commercial fertilizers di
tuiuish the profit on the farmers' la
bor productions, but it takes away
from the State a vast sum of money
nearly four millions of dollars
which is sent beyon 1 the bounds of
North Carolina never to return.
While it cannot be expected that
the farmers of the State will do
without commercial fertilizers, yet
there can be no question that with
industry now and during the winter
months, the farmers of the State
conld save, and by very little extra
labor, hundreds of thousands of dol
lars to themselves by mak ing their
own compost heaps.
The purchase of over I.t0o0 tons
of commercial fertilizers in a year
is certainly not indicative of thrift
on the part of North Carolina far
mers. too nrncxx hanna.
While there are a few matters of
November 3rd, which are not fully

that the public is becoming ex

Se Monk Was Loose.
A monkey who lives in a Boston
bird store escaped from his cage
earlv Sunday evening, and as there
was nobody nigh to hinder, he pro
ceeded to have fun with a fine col
lection of parrots, canaries, goldfish,
rabbits, and guinea pigs. Some of
these pets lie killed, a few he ate, and
the rest lie tossed about the shop in
wild hilarity. The exciting sport
! -or.tinued for hours, but finally two
policemen drifted that way, decided
that the tumult they heard was the
result of some unusual cause, broke
down the door, and after much diffi
culty persuaded the monkey that he
had better retire to his prison.
Morning broke on a scene of awful
ant complete de astation. The mon
key was the only creature or thing
in the place that ha:l not suffered
injury. Not a parrot could show
more than two tail feathers, the
goldfish lay amid the fragments of
i heir globes, the canaries were
buried under avalanches of bird
seed, the disconsolate rabbits were
weakly trying to digest the frag
ments of puppy cake that had been
crammed down their throats. The
owner of the store intends to kill
the monkey as soon as lie can decide
whether the crime committed was
breaking the Sabbath or cruelty to

over their deads, moving rapidly in
the direction of San Francisco. The
night was dark and stormy, so the

distinctness, but the voices of
her passengers were heard. Some

very recent exploration and study
that many of the more significant
of these places and monuments have
been certainly identified, and not a
few of them have never been pic

editor of McClure's organized a con
siderable expedition, and, accom

skilled and experienced in such work
made a tour of nearly the whole of
Palestine, and took photographs of
whatever of importance the latest
and most authoi itative investigations
have definitely corrected with Bibli

attention was given to the great
ancient highway leading from Dam
ascus to Jerusalem and ou down
through Bethlehem to Hebron; and
many views were obtained to locali
ties and objects of the first interest
that will be entirely ik-w to the
public. They have been produced
with great care, and will make one
of the most attractive features of

A Borrowed Umbrella Returned.
The latest and biggest umbrella
story is toid by one of Farmington's
merchants. Four years ago he
loaned an umbrella to a lady, who
failed to return it. (as usual.) and
in time the loan was forgotten. One
day quite recently, however, the
lady walked into the store with an
umbrella and said: "Mr. , here is
an umbrella which I borrowed of
you some days ago. I thank you
very much, and I guess it is all
right." Suiting the action to her
words, she opened the umbrella and

anything the merchant could say,
the umbrella was sent to the city,
where it was newly covered and
