Yesterday was a rather quiet day in

of Roanoko county, presented to tho

again triod. Tho prisoner entered the
plea of "not guilty." It will be re?
membered that this case ha* bad two
hearings, and In each Oase the jurymen
were unable to agree. At this trial,
however, additional evidence was Intro?

tho conviction or Lowrlo and imposed
upon him Iho fine of $20 or thirty days'
imprisonment in the county jail In de?
fault of payment of said fine.
TuKitr. is more Catarrh in this sec?
tion of the country than all other dis?
eases put together, and until tho last
few years, was supposed to be incura?
ble. For a great many years doctors
pronounced it a local disoate, and pre?
scribed local remedies, and by constantly
failing to cure with local treatment,
pronounced it Incurable. Science has
proven catarrh to bo a constitutional
disease and therefore requires constitu?
tional treatment. Hall's Catarrh Cure,
manufactured by F. J. Cheney & Co.,
Toledo, Ohio, is tho only constitutional
cure in the market. It is taken inter?
nally in doses from 10 drops to a tea
spoonful. It acts directly on tho blood

At present silk cords in black and dark

To understand the relation of Mussul?
man rule to religions and intellectual
freedom wo must note the influence of
the eonqiv\st of Persia on the Arab
mind. When tho invaders took the cap?
ital city ?if Khosru, they did not know
tho value of booty. Sinne offered to ox
change gold for silver, and others mis?
took camphor for sulphur. They came
like swarms of half starved locusts to
devour tho land. They were banditti of
tho desert, with no culture but tho in?
spiration of the clans. Tho only idea of
government in these tribes was tho
leadership of ape and valor, ns repre?
sented in tho slunk, with a natural mix?
ture of hereditary respect. On the death
of Mohammed they broke into rebellion.
Islam really came on the world like a
fierce descent of desert clans on their foes.
Mohammed's ideal of government
was just to send his governors through
Arabia to establish Islam and then to
collect tribute from the poor in camels
and sheep; also as plumb r to meet tho
expense of his campaign. 1'inter these
circumstances it was an absolute neces?
sity for the founders of the Mussulman
empiio in tho east to adopt in tho main
tho financial and administrative experi?
ence of their more cultured subjects.
Arabic names, customs, language, rites,
penetrated tho empire, but under their
external forms appeared the native
ideas and met bods. Persians were tho
leaders and simpers of Islamic culture.

Fishermen have queer customs. A
few years ago tllO fishermen of Preston,
Lancashire, used actually to go fishing
on Sunday. It seems incredible, but
they did. A clergyman of the. town used
to preach against this Sabbath desecra?
tion and pray that they might catch no
fish. And they did not! But they found
out how to make bis prayers of no avail.
