.Too Gray, the colored man who was
captured Wednesday night by Thomas
AlifT while iu the act of taking lumber
from the canning factory on Roanoke
river, was tried yesterday before Magis?
trate Camper and the evidence was of
such a nlain character that he was sent
ou to the gl and jury and returned to the
county jail. Rolrort Jackson, colored,
who was with Gray at the time and who
was shot in the side bv John Bowles
while trying to escape, could not on ac?
count of his wound appear in court and
his case was postponed until the 13th of
November. Dr. W. A. Anrstrong states
that the wounded n.an is doing fairly
welljto-day. The ball, which is a 8!2-cal
iber size, has not yet been located "wing
to its peculiar deflection after it entered
the flesh, though tho presumptive evi?
dence is that the bullet is in the cavity.
Had the pistol been oue of larger caliber
it would doubtless have been a fatal shot.

Roy Blown, the young son of William
A Brown, had the misfortune to break
his arm while playing football Thursday
sfternnon near Hotel Salem. This young
mnn about one year ago broke the same
arm at the same point just below the
elbow. Modern football seems to possess
a strange fascination for the average boy
and young mau, and the game, as it is
played, isbiutaland dangerous. It lacks
the dignity of the pr.7.3 fight and is a
relic of barbarism without the test of
Bkill and courage which was required in
the Olympic games, It has beeu proven
by comparison that the football players
of our colleges arc not the meu who
stand at the head of their classes and
are rarely ever honor men or medal
wini.ers. On account of the many deaths
yeaily on the gridiron the game will
probnl ly one day be forbidden by the
legislatures of the Stales and already
several American collpges have cut this
dangerous game from their list of college
