DUELLISTS OF WAR TIMES.
Yankee and Confederate Meet for
First Time Since War.
Richmond. Va.. November 4.?
Standing in the lobby of a hotel during
the visit to Richmond of the
Pennsylvania's who attended the unveiling
of a monument at Cold Harbor,
several days ago, was Captain
E. D. Christian, a well known Confederate
veteran of the Forty-first
Virginia regiment, who was enter
taining a number of the visiting Federal
veterans with an account of a
duel he had in 1862 with a Pennsylvanian
near what is known as "The
Cowpens." now the Mechanicsville
Pike.
"In some way." said Captain Christian,
"we were coming through a field
cut apart by a long line of rail fence.
As we approached the fence we sawcoming
towards us a line of bluecoated
soldiers. Before I knew it I
was face to face with a Yankee who
was sending balls at me, but luckily
aiming wrong. I loaded my musket
time and again and we had it there
face to face. Presently the Yankee
mounted the fence to get a better
whack at me for I was as bad a shot
as he in the excitement of that duel.
Well, gentlemen, down came the rail
fence and down came the Yankee,
sprawling on the ground. He managed
to get up as my old musket
banged away, but the ball never i
touched him.
"Wait a moment," interrupted one
of the visitors, "and I'll tell you the
rest of the story." All eyes turned
toward the military form of Captain
W. H. Rauch, a Philadelphian, who i
was the center of the listeners to :
Captain Christian's story.
""Well," continued Captain Rauch, <
"the Yankee just took to his heels
at that and you after him. You fired s
as long as he was in sight and he ran i
as long as his legs would hold him
up. The only reason he did not fly 1
50 i was because he was a man and not a i
bird." 1
"That's about right," said the Con- <
p?' federate and then the two men faced i
each other with eyes glued on the !
rl' faces that had seen the changes of i
nearly half a century. i
"Hell, man," Captain Rauch I
^ cried, finally breaking the intense;
stillness, "are you the Johnny Reb
that had that duel with me and came j
near making me a prisoner or put-1
/ ting me out for good?"
"If you are the man who jumped !s
on that fence and fell, and then got (
up and ran while a Confederate solV
.dier sent bullets after you to help ]
move, I guess we have met before."
"If any other man had been in my 5
it place and had not put up a good (
gv run," replied Captain Rauch. "he|{
would have been a fool. Why that j1
|gU old thing you were handling looked j]
t. as big as a cannon and sounded like' i
two or three of them."
f . Following this the veterans shook 1
hands and Captain Rauch took Cap- \
tain Christian in tow to introduce
him to his wife. Then Captain and J
' Mrs. Rauch had to get into Captain ?
Christian's automobile and the end \
was that Mrs. Christian got a tele- phone
call to have dinner ready for *
two extras. The party spent the 1
!><.- evening in the handsome home of (
Captain Christian, who had to prom- (
s&j ise a visit to the Rauch home in 1
Philadelphia. 1
Before leaving Richmond Captain \
i'-y Rauch declared that he would not
have missed meeting Captain Chris- {
tian for all his worldly possessions. ^
"I have never forgotten that rebel," 1
? said he, "and I see him now in my 3
mind's eyes with his big old-time 1
musket plugging away at me as *
though I were of no more good to the '
world than any ordinary animal."? ]

Suicidal Policy of the Lumberman, j
The lumbering industry is destroy- <
ing itself by allowing fire to follow
its operations. In all of the great ]
lumber regions of the country, the <
saw mill has taken the cream of the ;
forest products, fire has taken the ]
rest, and in no case has any State or ]
region long held supremacy in the <
great business of lumber production, i
me iourin greatest, interest ui tiie i
country. Under rational forest man- :
agement and protection from fire ,
there is no reason why a State naturally
endowed with forests and occupying
a high rank in the production
of lumber should not continue to i
hold its position. But the history of
the lumber business of the United
States has been, from the beginning,
a repetition of exploration, exploitation,
and exhaustion. The sequence
has been due primarily to fire.?Bristow

CHIME IX WEST VIRGINIA.
Trio of Negroes Strip and Whip Farmer
and Attack his Wife.
Sutton. W. Va.. Nov. 4.?Two organized
parties of men are scouring
the hills of this countv searching for
two negroes believed to have aided
Charles Lewis, also a negro, in a dastardly
assault upon Mrs. Mary Lockhold.
wife of a prosperous farmer,
today near the small settlement of
Exchange. If the negroes are caught
lynching is not improbable.
Lewis, the only know a member of
the party of three, who are thought
to have been implicated in the deed,
is dead, having been shot and killed
by a posse of men late today while
endeavoring to escape, near this
place.
According to Deputy Sheriff Williams,
the three negroes late last
night went to the home of George
Lockhold, living but a few miles
from this place and after tying the
farmer to a tree and whipping him
on his bare back with willow switches
attempted an assault upon Mrs.
Lockwold. Persons who happened
to be passing the Lockhold farm
heard the screams of the woman and
the negroes fled at the approach of
the passersby.
A posse of farmers was organized
within a short time and after a twenty-four
hour hunt, Lewis, one of the
supposed trio of negroes, was apprehended.
As he turned to flee from
his pursuers, after being ordered to
throw up his hands, he was shot and
instantly killed.
Late last night news reached here
that one of the pursuing posse surrounded
the two negroes in a swamp
near the scene of the crime. The
courier who brought the news of the
imminent apprehension of the men
said lynching could not be averted
if they were caught alive.
At midnight a telephone communication
was received from Gassaway
stotirnr that npprnps fhmicht tft
have been implicated in the assault
an Mrs. Lockhold had been captured
near that place and placed in jail.
Men with rifles are said to be guarding
the jail against a possible lynching
party.
Beaten for Demanding Wages.
Greensboro. N. C., Nov. 4.?A
special from Wadesboro. N. C., says:
"As the result of an alleged assault
upon Guy Madden, employed as
;ook for a construction gang on the
Winston-Salem Southbound railroad,
working about 10 miles north of
Wadesboro, warrants have been issued
for C. E. Smith, superintendent
af the gang; Walter Young, Smith's
assistant, and another man going by
[he name of 'Dago Sam.' According
:o Madden's story he was discharged
ruesdav and demanded his wages,
tfe says that Smith drove him from
:he camp with a shotgun and threatened
his life. Madden came to
Wadesboro and after reaching here
eceived a telephone message from
Smith that if he would come back to
:he camp he would receive his wages.
Madden says he returned to camp
md was attacked by Smith, Young
and the other man. He was knocked
down he claims, beaten and kicked
and then carried off in the woods
md left. Madden states that they at:acked
him because he had attemptid
to collect his month's wages.
When he was lying on the ground, he
jays, he heard one of the men ask If
ie was dead and then he says they
Lighted a match and after an examilation
decided that they had killed
lim and, he charges, carried him to
:he woods. He claims he heard one
>f the men say that they had better
iide the body.
"The sheriff has gone to the scene
>f the alleged assault to serve the
warrants."

There is only one way to cure deafiess,
and that is by constitutional
emedies. Deafness is caused by an
nflamed condition of the mucous linng
of the eustachian tube. When
;his tube is inflamed you have a rumbling
sound or imperfect hearing,
md when it is entirely closed, deafiess
is the result, and unless the inlammation
can be taken out and this

learing will be destroyed forever;

catarrh, which is nothing but an iniamed

Knoxville, Tenn., Nov. 3.?Professor
P. P. Claxton, of the University
of Tennessee, a member of the
tiook worm commission, has returned
from a business trip to Wisconsin.
Asked concerning the John D.
Rockefeller gift of $1,000,000 for the
eradication of the "hook worm?"
Professor Claxton stated that he does
not kow just what character of campaign
will be waged against the disease,
but he is confident that it will
eventually be wiped out. He declares
that the "hook worm" disease
is the "real problem of the south,"
and that 2,000,000 southern children
are suffering from it. He says a
meeting of the commission will be
held at an early date to take up consideration
of plans for the work.
