A SENSATIONAL TRIAL.
There was a decidedly sensational
trial 'here yesterday afternoon. It
seems that Mr. Moses Cone had bought
the property of the North Carolina
Steel and Iron Company, Including n
street railway that ran for 2,000 feet
through the land of Capt. B. S. Fisher.
Mr. Cone transferred the railway to
his brother, Mr. Caesar Cone, and one
nlffltt Innt month the latter entered
upon the land with about 100 laborers
and removed the iron rails. Yesterday
Capt. Fisher had Mr. Cone arrested for
the larceny of the rails, or, to use the
more polite term, for "statutory tak?
ing." The hearing was before 'Squire
Eckel, who bound Mr. Caesar Cone
over to court. The maitter will now
be settled bnfore Judge Brown.

At Hudnut's Pharmacy, 201 Broadway, New .
York, the young man who sold Ripans Tabules to
a customer was asked whether there was much de-^
mand for them, and said:
" There's nothing in the store which sells as well
as Ripans Tabules do. The demand is as regular(
and steady as for anything we carry in stock. Young
and old, male and female seem to buy them. In fact,
they seem to be in general demand. Not only that,
but the demand seems to come from all classes.
The advertisements create the demand, but their
merits back it up."
