Washington, N. C, Dec.
Four Russian emigrants arrived
in a few days ago- These ,
men could not speak a word of
English and were almost starved
when they arrived. Through an
interpreter they told of the many
hardships they had encountered
since their arrival in North Caro-
According to their story
they were taken to some point,
the name of which they could not
remember, by a railroad agent to
work on a railroad. On arrival
there they found all the vacancies
filled and the agent discharged
them, without a cent of pay and
n in the way of food. Next
they applied to a captain of an
oyster boat for work and went
aboard, but after a day or two of
this the captain finding them not
acquainted with the work, put
them off on an island, presumably
Indian Island, at mouth of
Pamlico river, about forty miles
from this city.
Without a scrap of food and no
money their condition grew
and finding an old
dated row boat on the island, all
four embarked, hoping that they
might be picked up by a passing
vessel Without any oars and
no sail they drifted a out for
forty hours or longer until finally
a current carried the boat upon a
beach, which they found to be
the main land. They then
walked until they reached a
road and followed it until they
arrived in this city.
When they arrived here they
were well nigh had not
a cent of money and were unable
to speak a word of English,
to communicate signs,
an interpreter could be
found, when through him I hey
told their pitiful tale. The four
men were given lodging at the
city hall and a collection was
taken up among the city officers,
and they were given enough for
meals. The spokesman
of the party says that they would
like to settle here if they can
obtain work. Tn men are all
men of pleasing
and no doubt u make
good laborers.

Money That is W
This morning Mr. P. J.
cashier of the National Bank of
Greenville, showed us some bilLs
of money, in denominations
from SI to that were in
pretty bad condition. Portions
of bills were eaten away by
iron rust and mold, showing that
they had been hid away in some
place unfit to keep them. The
bills were not in condition for
circulation and had to be sent to
the United States treasury for
redemption. It shows the
of people keeping money hid
away in any kind of an old place
regardless of its safety. The
owner of the bills in question
had kept them hid until they
were almost worthless and while
hid were doing nobody any good.
