TRAYNHAM'S DEATH.
Coroner's Jury Fails to Give the
Cause of His Demise.
(Special to The Times-Dispatch, i
l.YNCHBL'RG. V-.. February 27.?Ro?
bert Ij. Traynham. who was arrested late
last night in Roanoke at his residence,
charged with the murder of ^hls father,
former city sergeant, J. B. Traynham.
In his room In that city, and who was
l?elng brought to this city by Sergeant
Griffins, of the police department of that
city, who was accompanied by several
other officers, died nt tho Union Pas?
senger Station about 3 o'clock, shortly
after the nrrlval of tho train, No. 12,
trom that city. Heart disease, attendea
l>y tho intense excitement the man was
laboring under, was probably the cause
of his death, though there were Bymptoms
of strychlne poisoning just a few min?
utes before the young man expired.
An autopsy was held by Dr. Tallafcrro,
the city coroner, this morning, who was
assisted by Dr. George J. Tompklns. This
revealed the fact that Traynham was
suffering from a trouble of the heart,
nnd that it was not Improbable, but that
Ills sudden death was due to this.
The stomach of the dend man was re?
moved, and It will be held for the author?
ities of Roanoke, should they desire to
have an examination made In the dostro
to ascertain whether teh case -was one of
suicido or not, It being thought that It
was probablo that the authorities of that
city might want to know definitely
whether tho death was due to natural
causes or whether Jt was suicide. High
Constable Goode this morning, at the re?
quest of Dr. Tallaferro, convened a Jury
of Inquest, which was commenced at 18
o'clock and In an' hour the jury rendered a
verdict that the deceased had come to
his death by causes to It unknown.

and shrill, and by such of those whose
business kept them On the streets later
hi the night, the cold, piercing wind wn?
tho more keenly felt. On the street cor?
ners the poor beggars and blind menfll
ennts shivered ns with the ague in their
thin covering of rags and tatters. For
the blind, the crippled and the helpless.
the day was particularly harsh, and many
a poor, errant wanderer was driven to
(hid such shelter as he could. From pil?
lar to post the shivering mendicants were
driven by the howling wind and the blind?
ing, freezing snow, until they were for?-e?l
to ?eek refuge In the mission homes or In
the police stations.
Both the Bnllard Neighborhood Jlouse
nnd the Methodist Institute were com
pl.-tely filled by nightfall, nnd in the
crowded quarters many a man had to
sleep on a shake-down In lieu of a more
comfortable bed. But the refugees were
glad for anything that would nffonl
them shelter and a bite to eat on such u
bitter' night. At least fifty men and
women found their way to these homes
for the destitute and starving, and with
pinched noses and blue, tear-wet cheeks
bPKged for shelter from the dark, snowy
night and for a few morselB of food to
?luell the pangs of an acute, biting hunger.
At the Ballard House twenty-three men
aivl two women were given a Christian
refuge. Superintendent Buchanan let
down the bars to all who applied for re?
lief, whatever their condition, their posi?
tion or their history. On such a night
he said that he could turn none away.
So the rooms were lit nnd warmed with
glowing fires, a little food was spread
on the tables, nnd the gaunt, hunger
stricken crowd were given all the warmth
and cheer that a. Christian, charitable
humanity could demand. Besides the feed?
ing of these wanderers, Mr. Buchanan
had several calls from the outside for
food and fuel.
Poor Caught Unawares.
Many families, deluded with tho idea
that spring was nt hand, were caught
with very few of the necessaries of life,
and they all had to be supplied. Even
with tho work of the two city missions,
It is highly probable that many a poor
child and woman .went to bed with ach?
ing hearts and empty mouths.
At the Methodist Instituto the same
conditions confronted Superintendent
Sharp. All through the cold, wintry
day there poured fh tho doors of the
mission an unceasing tide of human
misery and want, and when at last the
CHAINED TO A CORPSE.
_I_
Doleful Punishment of the Ancients
Duplicated In Our Modern Life.
The Romans used to punish a murderer
by chaining to his body tho corpse of his
victim. Wherever ho went he dragged
behind him the debris of his crime, the
sleazy cadaver, revolting thing that was
once ? man.
Every dny you sen people dragging
around with them the corpse of their
sins. They can't get away from them.
And many of tbem have become so in?
timate with these corpses that they he
come corpses themselves. The misery
of these poor unfortunates has become,
constitutional with them. It fits them
ilk? an old shoe. They have become ac?
customed to It.
And there are thousands of humans
who are walking the earth to-day with
corpse? attached to them,?dyspeptic
stomachs they can't get rid of. They
have to get along the best, they can
with the stomachs thsy have. And the
owners of said dyspeptic stomachs ar?
to be found In every walk in life, suf?
fering from some form of Indigestion,
first cousin to dyspepsia.
They wear that forlorn appearance,
their energy at sero, nothing Interests
them, and they internst no one, their
faces are shrunk, their nerves are wilted
and their Shoulders sag. Are you one
of the myriads who dandle and grntlfy
thelr palates, at the sacrifice of their
stomachs? Are you one of those who
allow their senses to run riot, eating too
much, drinking too much, oatlng nt the
wrong time, eating tho half-cooked, the
queer and the Impossible?
Are you bloated after eating jtnd Im
aglne that It Is your food that fills you?
Do you have nausea when you look upon
this or that, rebel at one thing and be
hungry for It, too, at the sume time.
And have you got a whole lot of other
things tho matter with your stomach that
you know about but nobody else does,
and can't explain? It so, you have dys?
pepsia, real dyspepsia. And the chances
are you have had It a long time.
four stomach Is overworked, abused,
fagged out, The gastric and digestive
juices are weak, the muscles of tho
stomach are Jaded, and the whole busi?
ness needs new life. It needs something
which will take hold of the food as It
comes In and do the digesting, and lot
your atoinach take a' rest.
Stuart's Dyspepula Tablets do that very
thing. They contain a most powerful ln
grodlent which helps the stomach In the
process of digestion, cures dyspepsia,
sour stomach. Indigestion, heun-burn,
eructations, acidity or /'??rmiinlatlon.
They Invigorate the' stomach. Increase
the flow of g?stelo juice, and do two
thirds of what the stomach would hnvn
to do without ? theiii.- That glvo-J-tbe
?toiriHeh some rest, nnl a chance in ?ret
right again.
You will feel tji?. change (Irai ni your
mind and lienri and then over your whole
?liotlv. You'll fix?! rosy and sweoi. That's
the object.- You' can gat these effective
UltiH tablets almost anywheni on earth

hungered.
More relief could be afforded, said Mr.
Buchanan last night, if peoplo to whom
applications are made for relief would
direct the applicants to the Ballard
House; as all who go there can secure
a bed and food for the night. As soon
us the place Ig known there need be little
of the want and misery now existing.
Tho same may be said of the Methodist
Institute.
Notwithstanding the severity of the
storm traffic was very little hindered. All
the railroads reporte?! their trains as
being on time, or. If delayed at all, only
with an inconsiderable Iobs of time. The
telephone system worked without let or
hindrance all yesterday, and none of the
wlreft were out of order. The Western
Union Tlegraph Company was a little In?
convenienced by the high wind, but ex?
perienced no delay. Tho Postal Tele?
graph Company had one or two wires
down, hut, with the exception of a. little
delay with Chicago, maintained good con?
nection all day.
