A TRAIN'S RUN
FOR NEGRO'S SAFETY
Judge Anderson Tells ?tory
of How Man at Coving
ton Was Protected.
Judge George K. Anderson, of Alle
ghany, who presides over the county
Court of that and several adjoining coun?
ties, and who, after February 1st next,
will preside over the Circuit Court for th'J
district of Alleghany, Bath, Highland and
Bototourt, Is In the city on legal business.
Speaking of the presence of the two ne?
groes, William and Otho Green, who shot
Harry Rudlslle, a white man on a James
R|..-cr division train, in Clifton Forge, and
of the subsequent developments 111 con?
nection with the case, Judge Anderson
said that the troops had been ordered to
Covlngton to protect the negro nnd to
deliver him safe at Lynchburg by the
Sheriff who had authority to do so without
culling on the Governor In an emergency
suoli an that presented.
"The negroes committed the offense
In Bedford county, were arrested on a
train of the James River division of tho
Chesapeake nnd Ohio road by a special
Officer, and turned over to the sheriff of
Rockbrldge at Buena Vista. It seems that
they were then taken from Lexington to
Clifton Forge and carried to the Chesa?
peake and Ohio Hospital, where tho
wounded man was for identifica?
tion. The man had Just been operated on
and was under the Influence of chloro?
form and could hardly have identified
any one. By what authority tho bringing
of the man from LexltiRton was done or
by whose orders I do not know. This was
done, however, and the negroes were af?
terwards started for Covlngton. The fast
train No. 1 was flagged by a mob, and it
was then that all of the windows of tho
car wore shot out In the effort to get
the negroes. The engineer coolly pulled
out while the mob was Interested In the
shooting, nnd the negroes were thus land?
ed In safety In Covlngton Jail.
The military were sent from Clifton
Forge to Covlngton Saturday night, and
a telephone message was sent to Superin?
tendent Carlisle, of the Chesapeake and
Ohio road, to send a train to take the
negroes to Lynchburg. At 2 o'clock the
.negroes and the troops were hurried
aboard the train and the run begun. The
train went through Clifton Forge at good
?peed, having a clear trftck nnd being
shifted to the James River division track,
continued its run without a stop. It was
the first time for many years that a train
has been through Clifton Forge without
stopping, but it was the only awy to get
those prisoners through In safety. They
were taken to Lynchburg and sent thence
to Bedford City.
Special Grand Jury Charged to Look
Into it Closely.
(By Associated Press.)
JEFFERSON CITY, MO., Aug. 3.?A
special grand jury to inquire Into legis?
lative boodllng was cm'pannelled to-day
bv Judge Hazell. In the course of his
charge to the Jury. Judge Hazell said:
"Ths Impression widely prevails In thin
State that dishonesty was practiced in
certain measures pending before the Leg?
islature; that "sandbagging" w*as in?
dulged In; that hold-up were common;
that legislators resorted to questionable
methods and criminals acts by ncceptlng
money from those who were financially
interested In certain legislation. It Is fur?
ther the Impression that these matters
have not been probed to the bottom.
"Wo now charge you to make a thor?
ough Investigation of these charges
against the legislative department of our
State government, as well as against all
bribe-givers, and if any one Is believed
to be guilty so ns to warrant a convic?
tion you should bring a bill or an "indict?
ment against him. No good citizen should
submit tamely and quietly to such pro?
ceedings as are charged against the re?
cent General Assembly and others."

MADRID, August 3.?The threatened
general strike commenced to-dav In sev?
eral centers, including Barcelona, Mur?
cia, Cadiz, Ronda and Atcoy. Tho gen?
eral unrest Is largely attributed to bad

"I am anxious to show my gratitude
for what Peruna has done for me, and
hope this will reach the eyes of some
woman who has suffered as I did. For
two years I had Intense pains regularly
every month, had headache and back?
ache. At such times I was hardly able
to be about, and felt very weak and worn
out. I am now feeling very well, but
would not be without Peruna In the
house. When I see my children are not
feeling well and have a little cold, I at
once give them Peruna, and they know
It does them good, so they take It with?
out any trouble. I am a new woman since
I began taking Peruna. My friends say,
'How well you look!' and I tell them what
made me well, so some of my friends are
going to try It themselves."?Mrs. J. P.

cures catarrh of the pelvic organs (female

cures catarrh of the nose or throat, or
the many other catarrhal ailments of
