THE TIMES KODAK. Items of News Gathered About Town. J. M. Rollins and family loft Salem in tho fall of 1800 for Osaka, Japan, whero ho was stationed as a missionary for tho Mothodlst Church. Evidently bo must havo had quite a gay time over there with the natives, for tho St. Louis Ad? vocate, an organ of tho M. E. Church, in its last issue, makes tho following stato mont: "It is with very great pain that we announce that J. M. Rollins, formerly of tho St. Louis Conference, and for several years a missionary of our church in Japan, has returned homo in disgrace, having boon gu.lty of gross immorality Ho has surrendered his credentials, and is no longer a minister or momber of our church." Early Wednesday morning, as Thomas Shanks was driving a wagon loaded with cordwood down a hill near his homo over on the Stoolton property, tho wagon capsized, and Mr. Shanks, in jumping, broko his leg and dislocated his ankle. Dr. Killian was summoned to attend the sufferer. Last summer E. W. Taylor, whoso homo is in Richmond, but who came here from the Standard Oil Company's oflice in Lynchburg, obtained a position as bookkeeper and paymastor at the Salem Furnace. On Monday afternoon he mysteriously disappeared and his accounts are reported to be four thou? sand dollars behind, including a draft of two thousand dollars which was sent from tho Philadelphia oftlco to pay the employes and which is bolioved to be missing. A warrant has been sworn out for his arrest for ombezzlomont. Studonts of Roanoke Collego wanted a holiday Thursday and to obtain it on Wodnosday night locked a cow in the chapel, littered straw through tho col logo building, turned the supply pipe to the steam-heater boiler into a lec? ture Toom, flooding tho latter and cracking the boiler. They got the holiday. Capt. Frank Hoard has purchased Miss Martha Doyerlo's farm near Fort Lewis (a part of the Josoph Doyorlo es? tate), paying between six and seven thousand dollars for it. Tho steel oage from St. Louis for Roanoke county jail arrived yestorday. The annual celebration of tho Domos thonian Literary Society for Roanoko Collego took place last night in the town, which was well filled with friends. Tho programme, whioh was Incorsporsed with delightful music, commenced with an address by President C. E. Hirsh berger, of Virginia, who took for his subject "Tho pearl of thought," and was followed by E. 11. Copenhaver with an oration on "The heirs of ages." A debate then onsuod upon the question, "Resolved, That college fraternities aro commendable organizations," J. W. Lamm, of North Carolina, ably support? ing the affirmative against S. J. Homer, of Indian Territory, a natural born orator, who has boon solected to repre? sent tho Domostbenean Literary Society at the State oratorical contest to be held in Richmond in June. The final oration, "Tnough'ts victories" was de? livered by C. W Caesol, of Virginia. Tho celebration was thoroughly enjoyed by those present who considered it the equal in every respect of any of those which have gone before. Mr. Phillip Reed, who has been quito Indisposed for some days past, is some? what better. In Roanoke county circuit court yes? terday afternoon the jury brought in a verdict in favor of O. VV. Bethol ?fc Co. vs. the Salem Improvement Company for 81,0 10 duo for brick manufactured by tho former for tho lattor. The law? yers for the defense made a motion for a now trial. Colonel Hansbrough, counsel for N. Hockraan in the S10.000 damago suit against tho Norfolk and Wostern rail? road, decided at this term In favor of tho company, will probably movo to havo the verdict set aside. Denit & Webbor, ownors of the Times Register.havo recently purchased the Crabtreo building, next to tho Presbyterian Church, now occupied by tho Dillard Brothers and Puckott's butcher shop- This makes tho soventh bull ling owned by this firm, who thus show their faith in Salem real es? tate, having invested their "spare cash" in it. Lewis Shanks is at home for a few days. Cape B. Tamblvn is negotiating with English capitalists to tako hold of tho Salem Rolling Mills and put thorn at work, with every show for suooees. A few daya ago Luke Sears found oa the farm of James McCray, on Back crock about eight miles south of Salem, the battered remains of a large red, white and blue fire balloon which 1b be liovod to be the one sent up on tho night of tho 20th of December by the Disciples Sunday school, of this place Owing to there being non-connection of trains from the North Wednesday morning, some beautiful floral offerings of estoom from Witz, Biedler & Co. and their employes, to the momory of their friend, W. W. Patton, did not arrive un? til yesterday. Capt. J. C. Langhorno took them in his carriage and laid them tondorly upon the new-made grave yes? terday aftornoon. r>>ii< ?i Court News.
