SHERIFF WILKINS FREED.
YEARS Off SLAVERY, AND HOW HE ESCAPED. • Talks About His Delivery Daily in Grati tude-Gains Fifteen Pounds in Weight Since His Rescue. TTrbana, Ohio.—(Special.)—This town is greatly exercised over the remarkable rescue of Sheriff R. P. Wilkins from one of the worst forms of slavery known to man. He has now fully recovered from the results of his experience, and talks freely and gratefully of hls-dellverer. In an Interview today he said; "I have been u perfect slave to tobacco for over twen ty-five years; I smoked from twelve to fifteen cigars a day. November 4 last I bought my first box of No-To-Bac from Anderson & Cramer. I had little faith, and to my great surprise, after using part of the third box, I was completely cured, and did not have the least desire for tobacco. Today I feel better, I sleep better, think better, and I have gained fifteen pounds in weight, and there is not a day passes that I do not recom mend No-To-Bac to many of the tobacco users who I know are destreying their lives and vitality by the use of the weed.” Further investigation revealed the fact that there nre 500 people living in this town and the surrounding country who have been cured by No-To-Bac. Anderson & Cramer stated that they were the first to start the good work here, as Mr. Anderson termed it. ‘Yes, we introduced No-To-Bac into this town about three years ago. The demand at the start \yas very light, the folks had no faith In it. but we sold to a few peo ple, and to our great astonishment every one reported a cure. Since that time we have sold hundreds of boxes, and every c s under a guarantee to cure or refund the money, and strange as it may seem, we have never had a call to refund money.” No-To-Bac not only relieves the nerv ous irritation and makes the use of to bacco entirely unnecessary, but at the same time builds up and fortifies the gen eral physical condition. As a natural in vigorator and stimulant we believe there is no preparation In America to equal it. "The public should be warned, how ever, against the purchase of any of the many imitations on the market, as the success of No-To-Bac has brought forth n host of counterfeiters and imitators. The genuine No-To-Bfcc Is made by the Sterling Remedy company, Chicago, Montreal and New York, and Is sold un der a guarantee to cure by all druggists and every tablet has the word No-To Bac plainly stamped thereon."

Collinsville, Dec. 27.—(Special.)—At his beautiful home on south Valley street, Mr. B. A. Nowlin gave a delightful re ception last night In honor of his son, Marvin. The parlor and reception rooms were beautifully decorated and arranged after the latest and most approved style. On arrival the attendants were re ceived and welcomed In grand style by the Misses Bertha and Lillian Nowlin. Refreshments were served, and a delight ful time passed. Numbered among those In attendance were Mr. Walter Newman and Miss Mary Hutchison, Mr. Willie Roberts and Miss Lizzie Kirby, Mr. Ross Roberts and Miss Fannie Kirby. Mr. William Wilbanks and Miss Carrie Reed, Mr. George Roberts and Miss Maggie Hutchison. Mr. Marvin Nowlin and Miss Bailie Hutchison.

The exercises of the Collinsville high scho<> will open up next Monday under the excellent supervision of Prof. Z. D. McWhorter, A delightful Christmas tree was en joyed at this place on the evening of the 24th. Th, negroes gave a supper at Porter vi..e Ala., on Christmas night and ru moi says a general row ensued In which a p.stol was freely used, resulting in one negro feeing shot through the arm. OPINIONS OF THE PRESS. Does England want Cuba? Is there anything in the real estate line that Eng land does not want?—Brooklyn Eagle. Despite all l\er boasted civilization and enlightenment, England is as barbarous as Persia Was In her worst days.—St. Louis Globe-Democrat. The rank and file of the people of this country would rather thrash the devil out of Great Britain than any other na tion.—Louisville Courier-Journal. If Mr. Cleveland had entertained the least regard for the feelings of the cuckoo newspapers, he would have wait ed until they all got themselves firmly committed against the Monroe doctrine. —Washington Star. The United States must at all hazards abide by the position taken in the presi dent’s message, but the calm judgment of the best men In both nations inclines to peace, and this gives hope that peace will be preserved.—Nashville Banner, Dem. Secretary Olney to Salisbury: ’’The United States is today practically sover eign on this continent, and its fiat is law ” Nothing equivocal or ambiguous about that, and Salisbury understands it. That man Olney is not an inverte brate.—Chicago Dispatch, Ind. An Irish patriot of the olden time ‘•thanked God that he had a country to sell to England." Mr. Bayard is in the same line of thanksgiving—that he has a country lo defame on British platforms for the delectation of British audiences. New York Recorder, Rep. It is quite evident from the action of the republican house caucus, as well as the declaration of the republican mem bers who constitute a majority of the ways and means committee, that the sugar-growers have nothing to expect from the republicans in the matter of the protection of sugar, or any increase of the sugar duty.—New Orleans Tlmes Democrat. It is none of our business. To make it such without a cause, and to ratse the specter of war over a false sentiment and a false conception Is something more than "a grave blunder.” If persisted in it will be a colossal crime.—New York World, Dem. If we are to uphold the Monroe doc trine at this time, it is not because Presi dent Monroe, or any other president, enunciated it or indorsed it, or because it has been approved by the people in the past. We are to Judge of It now according as it may or may not seem to be of use and moment in preserving the integrity of our institutions and in guarding against such near-by encroach ments of European powers aB will com pel us, in the words of Mr. Olney, to go armed to the teeth perpetually. That is the whole question. Whatever may have been the nature of it originally, whatever may be its age, the sole matter to be de termined now is whether encroachments of foreign military powers on territory in this hemisphere are a matter or not of sentimental but practical concern to this country.—Springfield Republican, Mug. nhllHrfin Crv for Pitcher’s Castoria. .

The inexplainable pleasure of a sur prise party was fully enjoyed last even ing at the home of the pastor of the Cen tral Presbyterian church. The good people of the congregation had planned--* ’’Christmas storm,” and, without warning to him or his busy, bustling little wife, bounded In upon them, laden with bundles, boxes, bask ets, bags, cans, etc., which would have put the traditional old Santa himself to the blush. There were crowds of young, crowds of middle aged (no old people), and for an hour or two fun and good cheer reigned supreme. There were mer ry games, cheerful words and hearty greetings and congratulations. Some of the "middle aged" had vivid pictures and memories of other days brought back when initiated Into the’mysterles of the games. x lit; rvfiiuifi arm uv. «-»v» .v.*.v..iwv.v« as one when a thoughtful people made the pastor and his family happy.

Charles Meyers, the white man who shot and killed Walter Williams, a negro porter at McMillan-Lee Company’s store on Morris avenue several weeks ago, was given a preliminary trial before Justice Charles J.

The trial of tke'tlase consumed the larger portion of the day, and each and every witness was rigidly examined. The prisoner was remanded to jail without bond. Quite a number of spectators, both ’ white and colored, were present at the trial. —— - SHOOTING AT EAST LAKE. Two Negroes Love the Same Dusky Maiden and Try to Decide Their Love Affair With the Pistol. A shooting scrape occurred at East Lake Thursday night about 10 o’clock, betwesfi Dave Williams and Terry Walker, colored, in which the lat ter was shot three times in the back and seriously wounded. The two negroes had been visiting the house of another negro and left the house together apparently friendly. Reports say that they fell out about a dusky maiden, whose hand they both were seeking in marriage. There were no witnesses to the shooting. Williams has been arrested, and WalkT er is nursing his wounds and will re cover. The right "ad” in the right place will always bring re sults.

Now with Pearline, the water is just as strong at the beginning as at the end. This is one of the reasons (only one) why Pearline acts so much better than soap, in all washing and cleaning.
