April 28. The Ellsworth tronpe came
over last Friday night and presented a
very creditable performance at the Beech
Grove HalL Their main act, "The Turn
of the Tide", Is a good temperance piece,
and was fairly rendered by most of those
taking part in It. A few of the farcical
acta were very good, but in a few in
stances had some tinges of vulgarity that
should have been left out. With this ex
ception they deserve patronage and com
mendation as their cause is a good one.
They are trying to raise funds to finish
the Ellsworth church, between Streets

It Is getting somewhat dry and a nice
rain would be welcomed by most of the
farmers. Cotton planting is nearly fin
ished, corn is up well in some places
and poor stands are Indicated In others.
Some early planted cotton Is coming up,
and as the frost seems to be past per
haps it may not be killed. Tomatoes
are growing and blooming. Oantelopes
are very slow coming up. Bermuda
grass pastures growing finely, and the
cows that can find one now are rejolcr
lng with renewed life and giving, more
and better milk. Many farmers are
afraid of this gras?, even in a pasture,
but a few acres of it will pay more real
profit year by year than the same land
la any other crop, whon the expense is
taken into consideration.
Theirull crop seems thus far to be
unhurt by frost, etc., and the peaches
and plums are growing finely, appletrees
are not yet all out of bloom, but gener
ally seem to be fruiting sufficiently ,
This Is beautiful weather for farmers
and the beauties of Spring on the farm
are so ennobling, cheering and encoura

Eye Strain Cause of Sore Eyes.
Inflamed eyes, styes, and headache are
symptoms which point conclusively to
eye strain, and to cure yourself you
must seek thejeause, correct it and then
your trouble will disappear, you can
stimulate and help nature in curing the
symptoms by various ways, but still the
cause is there and liable at any moment
to break out again; it seems like pouring
water on the smoke to pnt out a fire, to
pursue any other course than the proper
adjusted glasses to correct the strain. 1
A normal eye Is one which when in re
pose the rays entering It are brought to
a focus on the retina, when they are not
this way an extra amount of nerve force
is demanded to make them focus correct.
y, the result, an overflow of blood caus
ing congestion, styes, the leakage of
nerve force, the headache; It Is not hard
to understand how a severe strain can
soon exhaust enough nerve force to
cause a general breaking down of the
whole nervous s stem.
By the aid of the latest Instruments
we can adjust glasses to any one, child
ren especially, letting them go about
their studies without being seriously
handicapped on account of eye trouble.

Raleigh, April 28. The Btate super
intendent of public Instruction is pre
paring figures to show the amounts paid
by this Btate for negro education. The
suma paid negroes and whites were not
kmpt separate until 1873. From then to
18wthe amount for negroes was $596,
OOOfrom 1880 to 1890 it was $1,916,000;
from 1890 to 1900 It was $1,848,00. For
1900 It was $255,000 and for 1902 It will
be $250,000. All this is for the rural
public schools, not Including graded
schools, or normal schools, the estimate
for these for the past 20 years being
f,000. The grand total Is $5,381,
000. The annual reports of the officers of

The receipts are in round numbers $11,

but few members know the secret work
and urges that officers be not Installed

A cestaln little Flemish watering
place much frequented by English and
American visitors has two attractions,
a Presbyterian church and a roulette
table, At a recent service in the church
it occurred to one of the "pillars" that
it might be lucky to play the number
of the hymn after the sermon at the
roulette table. So he stole out of the
church and did so. It happened that
the number of the hymn did turn up,
and the lucky coup became the talk of
the village for the rest of the week.
Next Sunday tbe church was cram
med to the door. The pious pastor was
rejoiced in heart After a powerful ad
dress he gave out "hymn No. 2T." The
moment the words left his lips, to his
consternation, there was a rush to tbe
door, and he was left with a faithful
handful to upraise their agitated strain
As for the rest they made a bee line
from the house of prayer to the house
of play. It is said that their little ad
venture cost them all very dear.
