Apparently the contest la already almost given up. ex cept in Maaaachusetts, which hold tenaciously to ail of Its textile industries, which constitute more' than a Ctth of the annual value of Ita ir.n'i factured product of ail klnra. Tbe South is giving more and more atten tlon to the production of finer cotton roods, and no Inconsiderable amount of Northern capital has been Invested here for thla purpose. When It come about that th factories of North Carolina are turning out aa elegant fabric as are those of Massachusetts, then will tbe New England manufacturer be found shutting up tbeir mills In th North and rushing to th South, where thev can put their machinery down In sight or the cotton fields, find nlenty of contented tabor and cheap ftiel and the ftnest climate in the world for cotton spinning. It is a movement that must Inevitably come In course of time. Some Things Lumbtrton May JNyt Have Though! of The Lumberton -eoTreipondent of the Charlotte Observer sends it tbe follow - Druggists In this town have been forbidden by the town authorities to offer Peruna for aal. This action has been taken because of th testimony of some parties wbo slated that they had been Intoxicated by this medicine. livery effort Is being made to uproot drunkenness here. Thus step by step the Temperance Vones are advunclng on the Morally Stunted, t would seem from the above that not only are juice factories to be run oat of the rural district and booxe mills to be uprooted in tbe towns, but there I to be also a rude Invasion of drucstores where exhilarating "winks" are wont to be given and Jag-producing "bitters" and "nerve-tonics" are found on tap. I'eruna Is to be put on a par with Pike' Pur Rye, and the finding of a flask of either In your clothes la to Ire reraded as a crime In Iimherton,- at least; and Lumbar-ton' example Is likely to be extensively copied In those towns where it Is r-rded as no more respectable to get drunk on Peruna than on straight whiskey. Hut is this ban upon Perunn not cal culated Ut produce a heavy Jar in cer tain unexpected uuartersT One of the chief dellkhla of the big Sunday papers are the pi gea devote! to the enthusiastic endorsement given to Peruna and kindred "remedies" by prominent men, especially ministers of the gospel. Are the people of" I.uinbertoii uwtire that bv their law they nre putting these estimable gentlemen In the position of aiding the Infamous liquor traffic slid contributing to the tide of Intem-lentnce? Don't they know that such of the sons of temperance as occasionally feel the neet of a quiet "nip" ste a unit In (ivor of Perunn. because It in no wny onfllfts with lodge utilisation, and tills In s mo it satisfactory manner, a OMR-felt want? ' - Sulelv the I.umberton fulk mmhl 'n have remembered that there is uot s lirtihlbltWvi state In the country In which I'eruna - and similar "ciilirrh-. urea" t'o not hnvo an linmeme sale! This, of court-!', Is due to the fuel that t liesls that deep purple thirst nore siieedlly than It does civtanh; and In such localities the people are much more generally, afflicted with the thirst ailment than uny other. - If the Lumbcrton law-makers had. given th matter the consideration that a public rdutut ought to have before enactment. It would lme occurred to them as the moat natural thing in ihe world that the sale of Perunn should meet with a. large ami constantly growing demand In "dry towns." By reason of their very dryness, th Inhabitants suffet from weak nerves, and Peruna lielng so highly recommended for that disorder and experience having provej thst it never misses a shot, It Is not th least hit Strang that the drugglHt sbeuld recommend It tff alLJnqulrers. Or It may -happen that a friend Is spending a uulet evening with you, mid there Is nothma nl hand to enliven th occasion. In this Instance, also. It Is stld. Perunn will be found u valuable thing to have about the house. Has Lumberlon thought of that ? A Louls-i (..t,.-r"s testltins to Its value on such occasions: - '-Bevernl years ui-o we lingered with n devoted friend and a lumie or-reru n otts evening In it country town.

Those who visited the On New Kngland building nt Buffalo n III understand what IJi.OuO will do. We ouU not double that sum to ad- vantHre. The demand for $100.000' Is simply preposterous.

That sum was to be refunded to her after she had completed her work for the firm. - A copy of the letter to be written wa Inclosed. It consisted of about ten line, suiting that the letter wa written with the particular typewriter In question, and that she regarded It as a good machine. A photographwas also inclosed, showing aJarr- looking machine. The woman sent her 12.50 and received ajwbel on a board. In the circumference of the wheel were the letters of the alphabet and the figures. She was Instructed to write her letters by whirling the wheel around until the proper letter crime to the desired place in the line, and then she was lo press it down to that it would print.
