A Helsble Baptism. , I listing Com
.n'i . ' pletca, . .- ,
June 28 A very notable baptism took
place near Zorah June 30. Freak Wright
a very honorable old colored man who
has been aa Invalid for . several years,
desired to he baptised and join the
church, consequently he sent for his son
A F Wright, to converse ' with him oa
tbe subject, tbe arrangements were made
and the' preacher, Simon " Moore, of
Blounts Creek, a very prominent colored
Missionary Baptist preacher, was sent
for who respoaded at once aUd came to
the old man's house,, took him In his
baggy by the assistance of A T Wright
and rode to the water and baptised him.
The age of this subject Is not definately
known, hut from his own statement he
must be atar one hundred yean of age,
he says he waa large enough to pick up
Ughtwood and go errands during the
war of 1818, and remembers the came
very distinctly. He waa a slave before
the war and came from away back out
of the Wright family. He hu ' been a
very Inoffensive hard working man all
his life as long u he wu able. In his
young days and middle age he wu
noted u a great hog bear killer. His
baptism wu attended by a large crowd,
about u many white people as colored,
after which he wu taken to the church
and Initiated and took communion. He
stood It all remarkably well, considering
his feebleness. ,
We are having nice showers and crops
never looked more promising. Corn
hilling wilt soon be at an end.',
It la getting quite sickly.' Mr A B
Tunstall Is very sick with malaria fever
and catarrh of the bowels, also Mr L L
Toler's bsby bu the malarial fever. We
hope they wlIT be better soon.
Messrs O C O'Neill, Ju. O'Neill and
Claud Wbllford are home near Zorah,
from Lenoir county, ' where they have
been timbering, the mill being shut
down for a week or two.

transcribing the list. We poor corn
buyers are looking forward for tbe time
when we won't have to pay 75 or 80

" FOURIER THE PROPHET.
Saw B SoUc Bla PM41tloBa ky
l,-xxi,.,l,,fMmm Imto Detail.
It.la aald of Fourier, tbe socialist,
that he had all the qualities ot a proph
et ercept vagueness. His era re for pre
cision spoiled his predictions for us.
Spl&lSpeaker quotes Charles Glde, the
economist, as, cleverly showing what
Fourier lost by. this:
"Thus if writing before the advent of
railways he had confined himself to
staring- that a man would IS a single
day. be able start from Marseilles,
breakfast la Lyons and dine In Paris
hbnprevlalon .would have been consid
ered most remarkable, but aince be
adds that the Journey will be accom
plished upon he back of a supple and
elastic ' porter, , who ..will be tbe 'nntl-
Mon,' yrp roar .with .laughter. "
rOr again if he.had aajd simply that
people would some da? be able to com
municate) Instantaneously with each
Kther from one end of the world to tbe
other Fourier .would have been credit
ed ;,wlth a rare; degree of Intellectual
foresight, but as he thought best to de
ceixt to the particular, 'A certain ves
sel lea vine London arrives In China to
day; tomorrow the planetMara, having
been advised of the arrivals and move
ments of ships by tbe astronomers of
Asia, .will transmit the list to the as
tronomers of London,' we again roar
With laughter and forget that be has
arrived by the fantastla machinery of
the Imagination at the same results as
the telegraph and the telephone."

When General Meigs died, his body
.was Incased In 4 handsome casket and
conveyed to the cemetery. When, bow-

casket In tbe sarcophagus, . it waa
found to be impossible, and the under
