[Raleigh, N. C. Dec. 21.?Yesterday
Moss and Goodwin, two desperate
white men, who escaped from the peni?
tentiary here last summer, In com?
pany with five other convicts, and who
were recaptured In Georgia, were taken
from here to the Columbus (Ohio) peni?
tentiary. An official here said that
the Department of Justice ordered this
?transfer, and 'that 'it appeared the de?
partment regarded the penitentiary
here as unsafe. Moss and Goodwin
were ring-leaders in a projected mutiny
of prisoners last spring, nnd made
complaint to Washington that they
were cruelly treated. They, however,
toegged to he sent back here, prbably
with the expectation of escape. They
are now under sentences of sixteen
years each. A white convict named
Wright, who. esp/used Saturday, was
one of their "pa!?g" A United Sttt'tes
official said to-day that the penitentiary
authorities did not yet know in what
manner Wright escaped.
The Mormon missionaries here are
now very bold. They have rented
rooms at a prominent hotel, and say
they are ready for argument with per?
sons of any religious denomination.
All their work is done among the
ignorant. They never succeed in doing
more than getting contempt from the
?better class of people or those tvt all

TILLERY WANTS CALEDONIA.
Mr. J. R. Tlllcry, of Halifax, has
great faith in the Caledonia farm, re?
cently purchesed by the State, and in
the possibility of its being made to pay
when worked by convicts.
"I will take that farm and -100-con
vlcts for ten year3 and give bond to
guarantee ?payment to the State each
year of $5.000. The State must fur?
nish me, in addition to the 400 convicts,
with tools and 150 mules. These I
will guarantee to replace at the end
of the ten years, in as good condition as
I received them."
The penitentiary authorities say that
the crop gp.thered this year will not be
short of the estimate they have been
milking, viz: 2,f.00 bales of eotton, 30,000
bushels of peanuts, 100,000 bushels of
corn and 100,000 pounds of pork.
The crop will not be quite gathered

two and one-half miles from here, was
waylaid and shot and robbed by two
young negros at 2 p. m. to-day near
the bridge at the Falls of Tar River.
Hester was returning home after sell?
ing his tt/bacco. The negroes who did
the shooting had been seen near the
spot, evidently ?waiting for their vic?
tim. When Mr. Hester came up they
pointed their pistols and demanded his
money. He threw his pocketbook con?
taining $10 to them and begged them
not to shoot. After getting his money
the robbers shot him three times and

found by a neighbor, who secured med?

aroused and a determined effort to
apprehend the felons is being made.

The case of these two young ladles
was especially pathetic. They were so
much devoted to each other that It was
the subject of comment, and the
younger more than once made the re?

have nothing to live for. When the
elder sister died the fact was scrupu?

Ripans Tabulcs : " Ever since I can remember I have been troubled^
with constipation in its severest form. So acute, in fact, at times, as
to produce dreadful headaches that, notwithstanding all the outdoor,
work afforded nie by my vocation, and the latitude it allowed me to
test my pedestrian abilities?which is supposed to be a successful
manner of displacing constipation?I was very often compelled to
forego my pursuit of 'business.' Constipation with me seemed to
be hereditary rather than due to accidental causes, therefore much
harder to relieve. In my extremity I often resorted to most drastic
measures, but found no cure to be permanent In 1892, while con?
nected with the Times of El Paso, Tex., Ripans Tabules were brought
to my notice, and I used them with marked success. Nowadays I
never suffer from such severe cases of constipation, and the violent
headaches I formerly experienced never worry me in the least. ' Some?
times, though, when I allow myself to lapse for a period into irreg?
ular habits, I become slightly constipated, but by taking the Tabule?
according to directions, my bowels again perform their functions in a
highly pleasing manner."
