from that Con-
prisoners the North
were treated worse daring the war
than were Northern prisoners in the
South, which publication bad called
upon him bitter denunciation
from Northern writers, who also
questioned his veracity.

It is to imped that other

treatment during the war may like-
wise give in their as
matters of history. Not for the
purpose or reviving old animosities
or keeping alive sectional bate, but
only that tho South may be
in the eyes of the world.
Ever since the war the South has
been sitting passively by, allowing
Northern writers and Northern ma-
to make her history for
her, and what is the result We
have been held up to the execration
of mankind as the most barbarous
of barbarians, treating Northern
prisoners like dogs and shooting
them down in cold blood upon the
slightest provocation. Libby prison
has been transported to and erected
in Chicago as a monument to South-
cruelty, while the falsehoods
have grown as they have been,
tune and lime again, reiterated by
the Northern press, Northern stump
and Northern Congress-
men. Yet it is a matter or fact that
the South treated prisoners of war
with more consideration than her
prisoners received, notwithstanding
she was unable even to take proper
care of her own soldiers
righting in the field to defend her
against her invaders. And more
than this, responsibility for the
death suffering nearly every
prisoner a Libby
and elsewhere can be traced direct-
to the n of Lincoln, Grant,
Si-ward and Sherman, who, despite
the appeals or Confederate
refused an exchange. This is his-
it is a damning that
poor was most unjustly hung
murdered for the crimes of
Northern authorities.
The South cannot afford longer
to silently suffer- being
or to have her history writ-
ten by her enemies. She must as-
herself for her own protection,
and in order that the oft-repeated
calumnies of her barbarity may be
silenced forever. t is necessary,
therefore, that the survivors of the
horrors of Northern prisons follow
the example of Captain
and let it be known what they had
to undergo at the hands of a Gov-
which bad ports of the
world open to it, and was
able to show them at least
common humanity.

in fact, that is being estimated at a

North was that Southern people
would not work; they were too lazy
to work; they were too proud to

slavery was extinguished then what

collapse. Therefore the amazement

Cotton keeps on getting lower
and lower. It has now gotten so
low that there is no profit in
it. It can raised in tho
Southern States so cheap that it
is useless for us this section to
try to compete with them in
it. As long as our farmers in
North Carolina undertake to raise
cotton and buy corn and pork they
will fill a poor man's place. Tho
South Atlantic and Gulf States is
the natural home for cotton.
Along the Atlantic Slope and
Highlands other crops will do
better, that is, is more profit
in raising other crops. This being
tho case, our farmers ought to
stop raising cotton and try things
which there is profit.

for beautiful work in this line is
second to no one in out country.
This window is made in two sections
according to the plan of church
The design upon each
section is strikingly beautiful and
impressive, and so fitly in keeping
with what it represents. One of
them contains a painting of the
Savior blessing little children, under
which is the inscription, little
children to come unto On the
other is an equally beautiful picture
of the Good Shepherd with a flock
and a sheep-fold in the back ground,

Now a word about the donors of
this window and how they managed
to secure it. The Infant of
the Baptist Sunday School was or-
nine years ago by Mrs. M.
M. Nelson and has long been the
pride of the school and church. It
was organized with five little boys
girls, and the teacher added to the
number by asking any little children
she saw who did not attend if they
would not like to go to Sunday
School and join her class. In a few
months the number had reached
teen and continued to grow until it
reached forty, that number now being
in her class. In the nine years one
hundred and fifty different children
have been taught her. In May of
last year She formed the happy idea
of Paving her class present a memo-
rial window to the church. When
mentioned to them the little

the amount of work she wanted each
one to do, telling them to make all
their money If possible
for them to do so. They set to work,
some selling flowers, some attending
to poultry, some running errands
and doing little bits of work that a
child can do, and in no great lime
they had brought together the
amount required for the window.
The was purchased some
months ago, but a combination

Late last Friday evening Coroner
H. F. Keel received information that
a colored man had been drowned
just before noon that day near Sum-
Hill, six miles below Greenville.
The Coroner drove down and viewed
the body, which had been recovered
from the river, and found it
profusely at the mouth, nose an
car;. He could not for
bleeding and returned to Greenville
to consult physicians about it. They
told him it was unusual for drowned
persons to bleed so, which led the
Coroner to believe there have
been some foul play connected with
the man's death.
Saturday morning he summoned a
jury consisting of J. C. Chestnut, W.
B. James, R. D. Cherry, L. H.
son, W. J. and S. N. Allen,
and went down to hold an inquest.
Upon investigation the Coroner
learned that the drowned man, WiN
Little, aged about while in
bathing with several was
drowned, it being supposed that he
had been taken with cramp. The
others reach him in time to
save him. They went up to Mr. A.
J. Moore's, who lives not from
the rivet, and told what had occur-
red. Mr. Moore assisted by a color-
ed man constructed a drag out of
some well hooks and went to search
for the body. They found it after
having been in the water little more
than an hour.
Dr. B. T. Cox, county physician,
assisted by Dr. W. E. Warren, made
a postmortem examination, but said
he could And no evidence whatever
of foul play. The jury returned a
verdict that the man came to his
death by accidental drowning.
When the doctor opened the man's
skull to examine the it was of
unusual size fiat ho weighed it
and found it to weighed ounces.

It la a hard matter to form any
idea as to what the result of this
year's crops in Pitt will be.
From what we gather it seems that
taken by sections general crops
on the South side of the river are in
better condition and show more
favorable prospects than those upon
the north side. Mr. Worrell Moore
told us Friday that he had been
at bis present home, near
Swamp Church, for nearly forty years
and that within of the twelve
miles from there to
he has never seen crop pros-
poorer than they arc year.

crops were good, that the
weather had brought them out
considerably and made prospects
much better. He thinks that the
cotton crop is doing than corn.
