Mr. Dixon in his speech before the curtain rose declared that the play treats in a bold objective simple way of the dangerous and grow in power of socialism in America. The people of the South declares tht author knows little of socialism yet.: It is the darkest cloud on the horii m of this nation and its -adherents will de cide either directly - or indirectly who is to be our next president; I have sought to strike this threatening power a blow in this drama in an evening's entertainment speaking in the simple language of laughter and tears.

New Bern, N. C. Dear Sir.- ' 1 Here's a tale with three or four tails to it ..Professor Irvine has an Academy, Uercertburg, Perm. He pinta the floors in summer vacation. It used to take 90 gallons of paint There were two paint stores there, and he used to buy (one year of one, next year of the other) 90 gallons yesr after year. Now be paints Devoe; 60 gallons; and the diZerence is a saving of $ 1 50 a year. H. C Fallon was one of those deal ers, good man; but he wouldn't take up Devoe; so we turned to the other, J. A. Boyd. But Fallon has found it neces sary to get a good paint . to compete wkH Devoe. He got one of the eight honest paints. He has a big bard ware store snd is doing an excellent hard ware business; but Boyd of course, his the run on paint he's a little hardware man. . We don't care how little or big a man is, if he wants good paint and is active and sound. Yours truly, 10 F W DEVOE & CO. New York. P. S. E. W.

Special Correspondence. 1 Greensboro, North, Carolina Oct 2 At the conclusion of hia charge to the Grand Jury in the 'Federal court yes terday, Judge Boyd gave notice that the civil docket would be called ' on Thursday at ten o'clock. In his charge fc the Grand Jury Judge Boyd left the beaten track of enumerating the several specific offen see against the laws. He devoted most of his time to a discussion of the funfla mental principles of 'good citizenship,' showing that if these were respected and preserved the re'gif of lawlessness would cease. " He declared that after all, it rested with the! people to prevent or to punish crime, paying that prose cuting officers and courts were in a sense helpless, if jurors and witnesses reflected only the sentiment of their environment or a depraved moral stand dar, instead of the great bed rock prin ciple of primitive but ternal justice as between man and man, and man s re sponsibility as a member of organized society known as government In this connection he referred to the recent railroad freight law, and to the evils of Trusts' charging the jury that it was its duty W investigate and see if there were any infractions of the law in this jurisdiction. He said' hat the rights of the railroads should U)iairly and hon estly respected, but these corporations should also respect the rights of the people or be restrained and punished if those rights were, trampled upon. Speak ing of trusts, he said that not only a constitutional but a natural right was the pursuit of happiness .by every in dividual. . " ', . It is no doubt only an accident or one of thoBe strange co-Incidents, that contrary to the custom for a long time in the Federal court here several lead ing reuuSlican politicians are on the jury panel of this court ' The foreman of the grand jury, Mr. Jesse Walsh, is not only the republican postmaster at Elkin, and chairman of the Township Executive Committee, ' but stranger still, at the meeting of the convention of that township last summer to elect delegates to the State convention, he was the chairman, and the only Black' burn man in the fight against Adams for State Chairman. Another member of the jury is John A. Hodgin, repub lican candidate for sheriff of Guilford county: Another is Mrr Shlplett of High Point, republican candidate for for Clerk of the Superior Court of Guil ford county. This candidate for a highly responsible office, excused him self from the grand jury, and was regulated to the petit jury, because he saH he did not think he had paid his taxes .for the previous year. Still another politician on the j jury is Mr. Bradley, ex-republiean Clerk of the Superior court of Orange bounty. ' Yesterday two young boys aged 9 and 10, were taken up by policemen here as estrays. They ! gave their names as Hobart Adams an-1 George Calicart They said they had walkid j from ricgah, 14 miles below Asheboro to High Toint on Saturday. Returning j tlio had taken the wrong road, and found themselves in Greensboro. The officer did not believe this story and , upon further investigation, they ad ' mitted they had run away from the Orphange Asylum at Thomasville, but their nann-s were properly given and they went to the Orphanage from Pis ' gah. They were returned to Thomas ville today. Liver at the Oaks Market ' (jymnaatics alone can nevor give that elaHticity, ease and graceful figure which comes by taking Hollifcter's Rocky Mountain Tea.

The Industrial News makes a spec ialty of printing speeches or interviews from its two most active . directors, Judge Adams and. Marion . Butler. These two gentlemen, including "broth er George Butler" seem to have the right of way to such a notorious de gree, that it is said President Rollins is getting decidedly disgruntled, and other prominent Republican . speakers, including Hon. Thomas Settle, Hon. Spencer Blackburn and J.' J. Britt are expressing themselves in no uncertain tones at the failure of the "orgin" to feature" their speeches or even print em. A carping, but misused Kepnbltcan speaker said yesterday, that the "News could fill up on proclamations from "Daddy" Douglas . interviews and speeches from Adams and Butler day in and day out that nobody read, while giying no attention whatever to live Republican Speakings and events in the eighth and tenth districts where the battle ground was". . ' ; Had this complainant waited until this morning when the paper had a vari et in the shape of sixorseven columns from George Butler instead of Marion and an "interview" instead of a speech with Judge Adams, he would probably have marred or embelished his critic ism with profanity The board of aldermen at a recent meeting . prohibited ' the sale of any thing on Sunday except necessities, in structing the mayor to define "necessi ties." . This morning the mayor issued ukase to the chief of police, which de fined "necessities" but goes further, and permits them to be sold only at certain hours on Sunday. He cuts out ice cream, soft drinks, and the street sale of Sunday papers entirely 4 but ad' mits the sale of cigars, tobacco, lunch es, newspapers at stands as "necessi ties," while confining them to certain hours of the day.'

The latter has expended a large sum of money at Raleigh. The Seaboard Air Line is very great ly adding to its track capacity here and is branching out. in many ways.

At first it would break out only in winter. Then, it finally came to etay. I had three good doctors to do all they could, but none of them did any good. I then used one box of Cuticura Ointment and three bottles of Cuticura Resolvent 'and was completely cured. My hands were raw all over, Inside and out and the eczema was spreading all over my body and limbs. Before I had used one bottle of Cuticura Resolvent, together with the Ointment, my sores were nearly healed over, and by the time I had used the third bottle, I was entirely well. I had a good appetite and was fleshier than I ever was. To any one who has any skin or blood disease I would honestly advise them to get the Cuticura Remedies and get well quicker than all the doctors in the State can ewe you." Mrs. M. E.

(Special Correspondence.) . Raleigh, Oct 4. A letter from Sec retary T. K. Bruner, of the Agricultur al Department, who is at Boston in charge of the North Carolina exhibit at the great food fair there writes your correspondent under1 date of Oct. 1st, the day the fair was opened: We had a glorious opening, great many thousands of people being pres" ent and I have never seen such enthu siasm as marked the affair. Lieutenant Governor Winston, who made the open ing speech was at his best and captiva ted the thousands who heard him, af terwards a large number of prominent people came to see North Carolina's exhibit and took the trouble to look up Mr. Herbert Brimley or myself, in or der to express their gratification that our State had come to the fair, and that it had done the thing so handsome ly. The visitors saying that we would find responsive and generous apprecia tion in all New England. I have ever felt gratified at the reception given to me personally and to the State through me. There was much regret at the ab sence of Governor Glenn and many in vitations came to him. As Lieutenant Governor Winston had to leave at once it was unfortunate that no social atten tions could be officially extended tl.i State. I am sure all this will be wel comed news to those at home who love to see our State pushed to the fro.-.t and advertised at its true worth, e ; -e- cially in a land of wealth and in Ju - like this. I am sure the good r , will come to the State from this el it of the State Board of Agriculture.
