Mr. Bourke Cockran, of New York, says there are not more than 2,000 out of the 15,000 of his constituents who would come within the provisions of the income tax. As a representative of the minority Mr Cockran seems to be a success. Some of the papers are poking fun at the people of Paris for being scared at bogus bombs. But how are the Parisans going to tell what the the things are stuffed with until they go off? They do the sensible thing in going off themselves without wait ing for the bombs to Gen.

Rivera, the discoverer of the medicinal qualities of the Mexican plant "Jtcama," pins his faith to it and insists that it will not only cute typhus, but will cure small-pox and yellow fever. The General seems disposed to invade the patent medicine domain, although he is claiming no patent on Jicama. It is said great discoveries of manganese have been made in Russia, which will enable the Russians to ship it to our Atlantic ports and sell it for a little over half the present price. This discovery was probably made just in time to play against the Wilson tariff bill, and help the fellows who want protection on Melvin Grubb (who seems to have a healthy appetite for his name) is the looming curiosity of Wytheville, Va. At the age of ten he weighed 410, at fourteen 450 and now at the age of fifteen he pulls down the scales at 535 pounds.

He's a whale; but he is active and can get around nimbly, although he does not aspire to fame as a pole climber. There is no tax on weather prophets in Missouri. Between prophet Hicks and prophet Foster they always keep us on the ragged edge. We don't know whether Fos ter caught on to the last blizzard, but if he dida't he proposes to make up for it by predicting the most severe storm periods of recent years between March 7 and April 13. Gov.

McKinley, of Ohio, is financially solid again. A lot of his friends got together, chipped in, paid his debts and returned to him the property that he had assigned, un incumbered. It is a good thing to be in the swim sometimes. The men wno aid this little favor are the fellows who are engineering the Governor's Presidential boom. If by chance he should be nominated and be elected these gentlemen will have the pull on Mr.

McKinlev. Miss Lay, of Carlisle, wants Mr. Jackson to pay her $5,000 because he had been courting her for ten years and has been going right along ever since until the other day he informed her that he couldn't make her Mrs. Jackson because his children were raising a racket about it. Miss Lay has been figuring on it and thinks the amount of her time which he consumed and the amount of fuel and kerosene consumed during the ten years' courtship ought to be worth at least $500 a year, not to speak of missing the chance of being a step-mother to a numerous family.

The Washington correspondent of the Richmond Dispatch of yesterday says The River and Harbor bill will not be completed until after the return of Chairman Blanchard from Louisiana. Mr. Jones says there is very little work yet to be done on the measure, but until the finishing touches are made, the aopro-priations for Virginia and North Carolina water-ways will not be made public From what can be learned tbe Senate Finance Committee will probably not take up at the meeting to-morrow the nomination of Mr. Simmons. Collector of Internal Revenue for the Eastern District of North Carolina.

They are too busy just now with tbe tariff, and the other matter will be held up possi bly until after tbe return of Senator Vance. The latter is not expected earlier than tbe middle of March, and he may remain in Florida until April 1st. He has been steadily improving in health, and his physician thinks he ought to re main in a genial clime until he is fully restored to health The Raleigh postmastersbip is another North Carolina matter that will soon have to be settled. The friends of Mr. W.

C. Stronach are making a hard pull on him. and tbe backers of Mr. Busbee continue to do all they can for him, with the chances that if the fight becomes too warm a compromise candi date will be taken up. An Important 8uit.

Sheriff Smith has given the Charlotte Observer the leading points in an impor tant case tried in Richmond Superior Court last week. It was the case of ex-Sheriff Thread- gill, of Anson county, against the Com missioners of Anson, removed for trial to Richmond. The suit has been pend ing for 13 or 14 years. It was for the payment of coupons of bonds of the county of Anson, issued before the war to aid in the construction of the Wil mington, Charlotte Rutherford Rail road, and tbe amount involved is be tween ana He trial was begun last Monday and was concluded Friday night, resulting in a verdict for the plaintiff for the amount sued for, Defendants' counsel took an appeal to the Supreme Court. Burning the Wind, Tram 78 on the Norfolk and Carolina Railroad made the run, a day or two ago, between Rocky Mount and Pinner's Point, in two hours and four minutes.

The distance is 116 miles. It is good enough to make 116 miles in 124 minutes; but the run between Rocky Mouni and Tarboro, a distance of seventeen mile3, was made in fifteen munttes.

March, is to be the Worst Month of tbe Year-Application of Hick's Predlo- tions to tbe Cout Counties of Eastern North Carolina. A writer ia tbe Newbern Journal gives the following as tbe sum of his researches into the weather predictions for the month of March, 1894, made in tbe almanac published by Prof. Hicks, the famous weather prophet: Until Sunday's snow storm Eastern North Carolina has bad very little winter only about eight freezing or frosty days, while the record, during a series of years' observations for the State Geologist, shows an average of twenty-seven; the lowest twenty-two and the highest thirty-five; this would leave not less than fourteen freezing days to be expected between February and, say, April 5th.

Tbe equinox of Mars, central February 18th. will causa disturbances the balance of February and its influence will domi nate tbe whole of March; in addition to this, March weather will be governed by six other equinoxes that will cause the 'oldest inhabitant to search well back in bis recollection of severe winters for as severe a March as March 1894 will prove to be; the most recent one having been March 1864, when tbe trees in tbe Episcopal church yard were broken down and almost entirely destroyed by the load of sleet that formed upon them. twigs no larger than ordinary strings being built up to the size of a man fin ger by the deposit of sleet upon them, causing great limt3 to fall. Freezing will follow the storm period of the 3d to 5th, the freezing being at the time of new moon on the 7th to 11th. Tne full moon on the 21st, earths equinox on the 22d, with tbe influence ot the equinoxes of Vulcan, Venus and Mercury, lntensehed by tbe equinox ot Mars, will cause the 17th to 22d to be particularly severe, and heavy sleet may be seriously feared at this time.

Gales and high winds will whip to shreds such of the pea vines as may escape the freezing they receive; March, 1891, besides beint the coldest, will be noted for the severity of its tornadoes and hith 'winds throughout the entire month, of any March, within tbe mem ory of people now living. Only three equinoxes occur in April and alter the first week mild weather may be looked for. Many of our truckers have planted too early in fact they might almost as well have planted peas in the fall, tor their spring crops. The leaders plant bv tbe date and not by the condition of the season and many plant because "everybody else is planting." In studying Hicks almanac many things have to be given weight, particu larly altitude and latitude, as the same temperatures cannot exist in Canada and Florida; nor in Craven county and the Blue Ridge counties. THE LOW PRICE OF COTTON.

The Weekly Beview of the 8itution by Biordan In the regular cotton letter of Riordan of New York, issued last Satur day night, they have the following to say regarding the situation of the mar ket: "To-day ends the most depressing week that tbe cotton market has known lor a long time. The movement, though somewhat larger than was expected, has not been excessive and Liverpool bas followed rather than led our decline, but the continuous selling out by the bulls day after day involved larger offerings than buyers cared to take, aud tbe forced liquidation of March contracts was the last leather that broke an overweighted market. Tbe unprecedented fall in silver, tbe uncertain and discouraging aspect of trade, the delay of tariff legislation in Congress, and tbe lingering doubt whether the crop may turn out to be lar ger than has been expected, have all helped to lower the price of cotton. But the sharp decline of tbe last few davs has, we think, been more largely due to tbe overwrought condition of the mar ket than to all other causes combined. The tremendous liquidation that bas taken place has certainly lightened the load that bas been tbe chief obstacle in tbe way of a healthy and lasting im provement.

Whether there is still any considerable amount of cotton held upon slender margins that is liable to be thrown upon the market is, of course, uncertain, but whenever the last of the weak longs have sold out, there ought certainly to be an advance and perhaps a sudden and very sharp one, The amount of cotton that has come into sight this week is about 11.000 bales less than during the corresponding week last year. But tbe disparity should greatly increase if the anticipations of short crop men are to be realized. Maxton Personals. The Maxton reporter of the Robesonian gives the following personal paragraphs "Captain J. T.

Elmore and family will moye to Henderson to day, wbere be goes to take charge as road master of tbe Raleigh Gaston and tbe Durham Northern railroads. Regretting Max ton's loss we commend them to the good people of Henderson and wish them increasing prosperity. Captain A. A.

Successor to BROWN RODDICK! No. 9 NORTH FRONT ST. fb tf BROWN LADIES' FESTIVAL. Entertainment at the City Hall by the Social Circle cf Grace M. E.

Church-To be Repeated To-NiRtat. An entertainment of the most enjoyable character was given last night at the City Hall, under the auspices of the Ladies' Social Circle of Grace Methodist Church Sunday School. It was a success, both financially and socially. "Tom Thumb's Wedding" was the first number on the programme. It was a unique and laughable little play, filled with wit and humor.

The costuming was perfect, and as presented it delighted all present. The many singers on the programme were accompanied on the piano by Miss Fannie Corbett. Tbe characters in "Tom Thumb's Wedding'' were represented as follows Bride. Gussie Jacobs; Groom. Earl Webb; Maid of Honor, Marie Clawson; Best man, Hankins Hall; Bridesmaids, Bes sie Craft, Julia McLaurin, Jenny Cor bett, Carrie Thompson, Mercy Newkirk, Ethel Hopkins, Edith Craft, Lizzie Kirkham; Bride's mother, Mary Ja cobs; Bride's father, Murr Hali; Eldest son, Harry West; Groom's mother, Janie Dudley; Groom's father.Edmund McLau rin; Ushers, Osborne Ford, James Craft, Ashley Bowdea, Jeff Moore; Guests, Jenny Stanton Grace Rone, Zon Hall, Mary Lewis, Edna Rittenhduse, Mel vin Dent, Belle Darden, Clarence Craft.

Sue Boone, Bessie Harley; Rector, James Post. Mr. Alex. S. Holden sang a bass solo.

which was loudly applauded. The rendition of a cornet and piano duet by Mr. E. C. Craft and Miss Fannie Corbett was superb and elicited much praise.

A special feature on the programme was the Empire or sheperdress drill. executed by sixteen young ladies, dressed in gay colors. Their move ments were magnificent, and praise for their graceful mirching was showered upon them from every quarter. Miss Lautha Twining was captain, and her company, Misses Mary Borden, riattie Orrell, Blanche Chad wick, Addie Davis, Daisy Woodberry, Louise Corbett, Mamie Daniels, Nellie Thornton, Mary Shepard, Annie Dudley, Henrie Shepard, Lucy Craft, Nettie Davis, Daisy King, Lillie Walker, Bessie Fillyaw. After the drill the company present after moving around the hall, partook of refreshments which had been furnished by the ladies.

The hall was brilliantly lighted and the decorations were fine. There was a row of booths on one side of the hall and tables on the other side, where all kinds of delicacies were sold. These booths and tables were presided over by nimble and handsomely dressed waiters, who could supply one's wants in little or no time. Each booth was tastily draped and many of them decorated with oil paintings, etc. The ladles presiding at the booths were dressed to represent a decade (of ten years) beginning with 1850 and extending to 1890.

Tbe following ladies were in charge of the 1890 booth Mrs. Geo. G. Lewis, chairman; Mrs. E.
