On Sunday about uoou about thirty

within the corporate limits of .Vinton
within sight of the public highway and
within plain view of a number of resi?
dences. Mark Weaver, a citizen in the
near vicinity made complaiut and Jno.
W. Jones, the town sergeant, weut over
to the creek to ruu them away.
When he approached the creek the boys
ran away in a naked condition leaving
their clothing on the bank. When they
ran the ollicer fired his pistol in the air
and ordered them to halt. They were af?
terwards induced to come bnck for their
clothes and ordered to leave with the
promise of arrest if ever caught there
Many of thom scampered away, but

to the ground. It wns at least ten min?

in a semi conscious state and has been in
that condition ever since.
Bystanders say that the negro, whose
name is James Mead, struck the officer
with a rock which he held iu his hand.
The authorities have the rock in their
Mead made his escape, notwithstanfl?
ing the fact that a posse of about thirty
citizens was soon~organized anil started
in hot pursuit. They followed him In the
direction of the stock yards. A 'phone
message was sent to~police headquarters
and OOicers Griffin and 'Johnson started
for East Roanokc. In the meantime the
posse were searching for him iu the
vicinity of the stock yards hotel. He was
soon found hiding in a clump of small
bushes and statted to run. One of the
citizens in pursuit fired three shots at
him, but he kept coming towards town
and ran directly into the arms of the po?

He was brought here and ^lodged in jail,
where he will beheld subject to the action

Mr. Jones is still in a very serious con?

the brain, may yet be a very aggravated
case. It is very similar to the wound ro

the effects of it several years ago.

The Populist convention at Roanoke
has selected Captain Kdinund Randolph

It seems to "bo settled.^however, that

select Captain Cocke, but wtll nominate
a regular silver Democrat. This would
leave only Mr. Merritt T. Cooke and Col?

chances largely in favor of the latter. At
the election held i l Charlottesville one
delegate was also Instructed for Mr. Elly

Cumberland county, where he resides on

The Two Men Who Turned the
World Upside Down.
THE SUNDAY MORNING- DIS?
COURSE OP REV. H. I. STE?
PHENS?SIN TURNS EVERYTHING.
WRONG SIDE UP WHEREVER IT
TOUCHES?CHRIST CAME TO
TURN THIS WORLD RIGHT SIDE
UP?HE CAME TO TEACH US
HOW TO LIVE, NOT HOW TO DIE.
Rev. H. I. Stepbens, of St. James M.
E. Church, preached as follows Sunday
morning from tho text:
"These men that have turned the world
upside down have come hither also."
The persons referred to in the text are
theltwo missionaries, Paul nud Silas.
Thessalonica, a city of some eighty thou?
sand inhabitants, was the place where
they had been preaching. For three weeks
Paid and Silas held a protracted meeting
in this city which resulted in the conver?
sion of many souls. The effect of Paul's
preachiog was so powerful that the Jews
determined to get rid of hl??, and so,
moved with envy, they organized a mob
o' certain lewd fellows of the baser sort
and assaulted the house of Jason in
which they were staying. Not. being able
to flud Paul and Silas in this house, they
took Jason and certain other brethren to
the suburbs ^of the city, crying, "these
men that have turned the world upside
down have come hither also." "Turned
the",world"upside down" is a phrase used
by the mob to express what they con?
ceived to be the effects of the Gospel
which Paul peached.
It is said that a man who drinks thinks
everybody drunk but himself. So these
people whose heads bad been turned by
their false 'religions thought that these
missionaries were under the influence of
an evil spirit which assisted them in up
settiug the established order of things
and throwing everything .into confusion.
Let us notice -
I. That when God made this world
everything was right side up. In looVing
nt the history of creation we learn that
after God.had finished his work that He
looked upou the^different objects which
his own power had brought iutoexistence
and pronounced them good. He saw a
young wot Id swinging down iu the warm
fresh air of'heaven, bathed in'the bright
rays of a new made sun. Not being able
to find a defect in its movements or con?
struction,He gave it his blessing and'said
that itjwas good. Then He 1 joked at the
different creatures which He had made to
dwell upon the land,sea and forest. After
considering each of them and their fitness
to fill tho places for which they were
made, He pronounced them very good.
He looked at the man and woman whom
He had made In His own image as].they
walked together amid the hanging brows
of their paradise home; He pronounced
them good and "gave them his blessing.
Everything God made was good. Not a
single mistake had been made. Not an
error could He detect. Everything was
as near perfect as He could make it.
II. When sin entered the world it was
turned wrong side up. Sin has cursed
this earth and 1 everything it contains.
Wherever it has touched the effects of its
blighting power can be seen. The young j
world brought forth thorns, thistles and
briars after the fall instead of flow er?.
The animals that were the playmates of
Adam and his wife before sin touched
them were their most dreaded enemies
afterwards. The happy couple that dwelt
together in their paradise home were
driven out into t^e world, under the sen?
tence, "In the sweat of tly face ?halt
thou eat breail, dust thou urt and unto
dust shalt thou return."
Sin turns things wrong side up wher?
ever it touches. If it touches the life of
a man, it turns that man away from God
and truth and down to ruin. If it touches
a home,its deadly effect are seen for years
afterwards. If it touches a community or
ajchuich the awful ? fleets of Its touch re?
main to *ell the story.
III. Christ came to torn this world
right side up by teaching men the true
science of right living. He didn't come
to *each men how to die, as some people
think, but for the more uob'e purpose of
teaching them how to live.
Hefore Christ came the people had been
taught that It was right to love their
neighbors nud to hate their enemies.
Christ came and said, "I say unto you
love your enemies, bless those who curse
you." The people bad been taught that
they should not kll', and that any one
wno took the life of a man was a mur?
derer;" but Jesus said, "Whosoever is
angry with his brother without a cause is
a murderer," whether he has killed any?
one or not. '.IWoro Christ came the peo?
ple had been taught that it was right to
demand an eye for an eye, or 'a tocth for
a tooth; but Christ taught his disciples
that this spirit of retaliation wns wmng,
that we should not return evil for evil,
railing for railing, but that we should do
good to those who despltefully used us.
There', were people who had been taught
that it was "more blessed to receive than
to give." Chris1'' taught them that such
statements were untrue and "that it
was more blessed to give than to re?
Then theie were people just like there
is to day whose chief ambition was to get
rich,and so they were busy all the time
in laying up treasures upon earth. Christ
taught, that this wob wtong; that the life
of a man was too precious to be spent in
the low occupation of making and laying
up money, but that they should by good
deeds and nets of charity l>y up treasures
In heaven, where moth and rnst do not
corrupt nor thieves break through and
There was a class "of people who would
fast with a 'very sad countenance. To
these people Christ said, when thou fastest

upon street corners and in the market
