Mr. C. P. Sidet, of Salem, is ahead on a big pork yield. Last Fridav he killed three hogs averaging fourteen months old and the net weight was 1063J lhs. Good sized porkers. The Colored Methodist Episcopal de nomination, of this city, we learn, has pur chased a lot near-Belo's pond, upon which they will begin shortly the erection of a church building. Mr. Wiley Gibson now sports a bicycle which he purchased a few days since through the agents, Messrs. Simmon3 & Coley. Several others speak of giving the gentlemen orders. It did the editor good to grasp the hand of Mr. J. L. Crews, of Sedge Garden, Forsyth county. His was the third name put down on The Sentinel's list when it was founded in 1S52. Messrs. F. & H. Fries shipped Tuesday twenty-five bales of their cotton goods to Shanghai, China. This was the first ship ment of a 100 bale lot, an order for which they received a short while since. Rev. II. A. Brown, will preach to the Forsyth Riflemen, at the Baptist Church, next Sunday morning, the annual sermon to the company. Each member is earnestly requested to turn out on this occasion. Steps are being taken by r. number of the young men of Winston-Salem for the purpose of organizing a Bicycle Club in Wituton. A meeting will be called within the neTt few days looking to its organiza tion. The Union Grove Reform Club will hold a public rceeling next Saturday night and on Sunday morning a Sabbath School will be organized at the Chapel. Every body Las an invitation to attend both meetings. Tuesday and Wednesday were "field days" for our warehouses. Every ware house was packed to its utmost capacity with the weed. Prices are good and the farmers are all happy who sell their tobacco in Winston. Capt. Jesse Thompson, the veteran fox hunter of Guilford conaly, who is well known throughout Forsyth and adjoining counties, died last week at an advanced age. It is said tlrut he was present at the capture of 733 foxes. Rev. G. P. Bostick, of Concord, is as sisting Pastor Brown in a very interesting aeries, of meeting at the Baptist Church. His sermons are able and instructive and with the interest manifested, much good promises as a result of his and the pastor's earnest labors. An invitation has been signed by the pastors and official members of our various churches, and was on last night forwarded to the noted evangelist, Rev. Mr. Pearson, who is now conducting a' glorious revival meeting in Raleigh, inviting him to come to Winston to conduct a similar meeting. The large well being dug by the Wins ton Water Work ' Company .at Belo's pond, is now thirty feet in depth. There is now a good supply of water running in, but the company propose to continue in the work until a supply of water, rating at 200 gallons per minute, is secured, if possible. At a meeting held at Church Street M. E. Church, South, last week in Charlotte, Mr. J. T. Bagwell was recommended by a rising vote to receive license to preach. The quarterly conference gave him license, and the otbcial board of the church request ed the Presiding Elder le put him on that station for 1838. Fifty-four hands, are now shovelling dirt on this end of the Wint-ton-Wilkeaboro Railroad, while in few days the number will be largely increased. A gentleman in forms us that the winter quarters, which are substantial and creditable buildings, are nearing completion, and everything is indi cative of the work being pushed rapidly forward. ' ' The series of meetings at Union Grove Ch.ipel, conducted by Kev. E. J Winkler, closed last Saturday niht with sixteen cul verts. Mr. Winkler has purchase 1 a lot near the Chapel up m which he tfi!l have erected., shortly, a church of hi deno:nim tion, (Xortbern Meih-wiist ) Several per sons have connected themselves with his church. In cruising around Wt-dnesday, we dropped in to see our clever marble man, Mr. I. W. Durham, whom we found quite busy and reporting business brisk. He shown us a neat pieoe of work, to be erected over the grave of Ralph, son of Mr. and Mrs. A. B. Gorrell. In design and work manship it cannot be surpatsed, We note Mr. Durham's success with pleasure. Last Sunday was the first Sunday in the Advent, the beginning of the Church year and was observed by Ihe Moravian Church in Salem. The text was Matthew 29:19. The Salem Orchestra accompanied the choir in ''Lift up your heads, O, ye gates," beautiful and sweet. The solo by Mrs. Ebert was especially fine and the whole service was beautiful and interesting. A meeting will be held in the Annex of the Centenary M. E. Church, at three o'clock this evening, csmposed of ladies of different church denominations, whose pur pose it will be to organize a charitable asso ciation for Winston-Salem. The move is a noble one, and all ladies interested in benev olent work are earnestly requested to meet the contaittee at the time mentioned. Mrs. Laura A. Winston, of Greensboro, haying recently returned from her mission school in Mexico, will deliver an aderess on "Mexicr," in the Reform Club Hall to-morrow (Friday) night, under the auspices of the W. C. T. U., and the proceeds ten cent6 admission will be given for that cause. She will also exhibit some Mexican curiosities and her daughter will sing in Spanish. About ten o'clock last night, Bob Ad ams, a "pinhcoker," who is well known among our tobacco men as a fine judge of the weed, was found dead in the bar-room ofllartmon Bros. During the evening, we are told, he indulged pretty freely in ardent spirits and went in the back room and lax down on a sofa, where he was found dead by Mr. Hartman at the hour mentioned. Such a death is to be deplored and should serve as a warning to those who are in the habit of indulging in strong drink. . A Grand Combination Concert will be given at Brown's Opera H;use to-night by the Saiem Orchestra, assisted by Prof. Gus Rich, the Wizard of the Blue Ridge and the Comedy Conjurer of the Twin-City. The enteitainmeut proinit.es to be the most in teresting one ever given by the Orchestra and a "rip-roaring" good time is in store for all who attend. New selections, new music, new tricks, and an enjoyable time for every body. It is home talent and Tub Sbstinel ! bespeaks for them a rousing big house Tickets now on sale at Brown's drug store Don't forget to go. Shot His Brother. We learu that last week, two son3 of Mr. Erwin Tedder, living near Neatman, Stokes county, went out limiting, and the oldest one being in the ho! low, attempted to shoot a squirrel as it ran down the tree, when he accidentally shot his brother, who happened to be in range on the hill. One shot took effect in his forehead, two in his neck, and one in his shoulder. His recovery is thought to be donbtful. How Al out It f A correspondent writing to theArchdale Leader, under the signature of "O," has this to sav : "A Winston policeman was heard to re mark this morning that 27 arrests were made in that town Saturday night and that liquor was at the bottom of every case. Also that under the "dry" regime from May 183G, to May 1887. there were 551 cases before the mayor, while since last May here have been 5S3. Yet 'Local option does no good some say. it is bad enough lor voters to love whiskey ; worse lo 'lie for it. QOS-ilP PRi))I GItS5SSBOKO. A Ureezy Bituh of Sews From tlm-C'ty of Flower."

The various es-t:ib!i--hriir;nts which are supposed to be the headquarters of Santa Ciaus are resplendent with all the gorgeon decorations an 1 tri pings of the holiday season and the town has alieady costumed itself iu full dress for the approaching Christmas festivities. Sev eral competing establishments in the holi day line are vieing with each other in the exhibition of the most elaborate displays and Greensboro is aglow. Ai for years past Caldcleugh's is the acknowledged center of attraction, and old and young may be seen daily flocking to feast their vision on the gorgeous array there displayed. The usual program of Christinas entertainments is also in course of preparation and from present indications Christmas week wiil be vocal with concerts, cantatas, etc. It seems that something definite has at last actually been anived at regarding water works for Greensboro. A bond for 20,000 signed by TV. W. Taylor and Chas. Hinch man, of Philadelphia, and F. B. Hubball and T. A. Howard, of Baltimore, has been filed v.iih the Board of Aldermen for the construction of w;Uer works according to ccutrr.ct. This practically makes the natter of water works a cer taint . A man named Cohn, who lives ia the country, came to town Saturday and during the day imbibed ireely from tima to time of "red eye." Late in the etening he started for home but was too far gone to know what he wse about, and some one meeting him in South Greensboro, tied his mule to a tiee, leaving Cohn in a drunken stupor in the wagon. On awaking in the morning, he found that some one bad unhitched his mule and departed to parts unknown with him. Cohn is now mnlelcss. The woods are full of northern hunters, a number of whom are stopping here, finding excellent sport in shooting birds in the sur rounding country. Forty large carp, the size of shad, were caught in the Nauce pond near town a few days since. They had grown to that size since March, 1S3(5, when they were placed iu the pond. The cultivation of carp is growing popular in this section and there are in this county not less than five well kept ponds. The county cwurt-hutise building here has just been renovated and repainted inside and out, and now presents the appearance of a new buildiug. It is said, with one ex ception, to be the handsomest county eourl house in the Stata. Lee Hall, Esq., or "Red Hall," the fa mous Texas scout, a son of the late Dr. Jas. K.

Smith, pastor of Wesruinister Presbyterian Church, lias had a call from a Baltimera congregation with a salary of $2,500, but has declined. Mr. L. W. Andrews has gone on atrip to Florida, where he will spend part of the winter in the famous Indian River orange section. Col. John N. Staples, of this city, has re signed his position as Attorney of the R. & D. R. R. and will practice law in Washing ton Citv. G. O. A. Just So,Brother, We noticed a good deal of tobacco going to Winston last week. The farmers all re port good prices. Germanton Tunes. Just so, brother, and the farmers of Stokes and other adjoining counties, after trying other markets, have concluded that Winston stands head and shoulders above any other market for high prices and those who have sold elsewhere regret their action and now advise their friends to "Steer for Winston with your tobacco, the leading market in North Carolina." Let our farmer friends come on and The Sentinel will assure one and alljthat a hearty welcome awaits them here, besides the biggest kind of prices will greet them at the sale of their tobacco.

We were glad to meet him. Dr. Burkhead left Tuesday morning lor' the M. E. Conference which is now in"ses sion at Fayetteville. Bishop Key is pie siding over the assembly. - Hymenlal. The Sentinel's reporter and foreman, Mr. R. E. Carmichael, at seven and a half o'clock last Wednesday evening, sererejl his connection with the "life of single cussed ness" and joined the great throng of those who have lately entered into the life of "wedded bliss." At the hour mentioned, he bade adieu to his fellow workmen and was united in marriage to Miss Alice Miller, youngest daughter of Mr. and Mrs. J. C. Miller, at whose residence the ceremony was performed by Rev. L- S. Burkhead, D. D., and was witnessed by at least forty rela tives . and friends, all of whom extended their most hearty congratulations immedi ately after the marriage. The Sentinel force was among the large number of well- wishers and with them enjoyed the occasion most delightfully. At about half past eight the merry party were shown into the dining room, where was in watting a sumptuous supper, such a one as did honor t the occa sion.' ' The event was a pleasant one, and the bride and groom were the recipients of many handsome and useful presents. None can wish for Mr. and Mrs. Carmichael a brighter, happier and more prosperous fut arealban does tut Sentinel and its entire The Methodist I?. Conference. Delegate J. H. Pegram returned Tuesday night from the Methodist P. Conference at Fl it Rock, which closed itssession Tuesday evv-uin. Mr. Pegram dropped into our office yesterday morning and informed us that the Conference was the most interest ing and business-like of any session held by that body before. Rev. T. J. Ogburu was re-elected President. The Conference ap pointed.Rev. E. Swain to the pastorate of the Winston cnurch, while Rev. W. F. Kennett was appointed to the Flat Rock Circuit, and will make his home at Kernersille. Rev. Mr. Swain will occupy the pulpit of his church here next Sunday mornins and night. He will then be absent two Sabbaths arranging his business affairs at his recent field of labor. The next session of Confer ence will be held at Henderson. Dwelllnsr Burned. About two o'clock Monday morning, the fire bell pealed forth and soon our peo ple were running from every direction toward the Gr:i!d Sohool. mar which place a small cottage house, the property of Mr. Cicero Tise, was disc ered to be on fire. It was far advanced when discovered, and when reached by the fire company, their hoso was found to be insufficient in length to reach the nearest hydrant. An extra hose was gotten from the Salem Company, but by this time the flames had gotten be yond their control and the building was burned to th gro io 1. It was occupied1 by Mr. John Hicks and his son-in-luw, Mr. R. H. Hopkins. The household property was covered by ins'iranoe, we learn, while Mr. Tise's loss, with no insurance, is eslim-ted at between five and six hundred dollars. WHAT "THE ST ATE OP WILKES" IS. The Gaotl OM County is a Hidden Uins of Wealth, Waiting for the Capitalist. EujTott Skstixel: To more clearly unde: stand the inducement Wilkes offers to capital, it is bast first to take a bird's eye view of the county. The whole county is a large valley, over-shadowed oa the North by the mineral ribbed heights of the Blue Ridge and by the less imposing, but still beautiful and parallel range of the Brushic-s on the Soutn. The Yadkin liver enters the county on its western bouniry, sixteen miles above Wilkesboro, and flows east 40 miies through its entire length ; increasing its volume at almost cverv curve, bv the influx of brooks, creeks and livers, that come gushing aaA gurlin down from the moun tain ranges on either side. The valley is a great reservoir into which the mountain gaps, like safety-valves, admit the warm air of the South and the cool of the North. These positive and negative elements meet, neutralize, and form an atmosphere of the very r'nest nature, not so changeable as oth er climates, and this togethrr with the puri ty of water and air make Wilkes one of the most healthy localities in the State. As to her n:iu:.il resources, there is a vein of iron ore north of the Yadkin, which has been traced from the lov er end of the county to a point north of Wilkesboro. Rich deposits of the same .metal have been found around Trap Hiil and along the loot of the Blue Ridge. In certain localities, rich mag netic iron ore is found. Messrs. Fiulcy & Blair have some specimens from lands which they have ou their real estate books for ssle. GoUi, silver and mica have been par tially operated in the county, and are now awaiting capital and railroad facilities. The varied soil of the county is capable of producing almost all kinds of vegetation as well as miuerals. It embraces every kind from the gravely clay tobacco land of the ridges to the fertile black loam corn land, of the numerous creek and river bottoms. The corn to be seen, up and down the valley, at this season of the year is immense. But the most-come-at able wealth of Wilkes is its timber. By making a jough calculation of our marketable timber, put into northern markets at reasonable freight expenses, I find that our timber alone will amount to enough to uy up at least two of our adjoining counties in ta-to. This vast source of wealth is standing on every moun tain top, platteau and rier bank, waiting for capital to come and utilize our dozen or more of inexhaustible rivers, to bring their timber into the commercial channels, by the means of furniture shops, spoke and handle factories, sash, door and blind mills, and wagon and buggy factories. There is money in it. Who will be the first to reap the benefit. We are on the eve of a Biij Boom, who will be the first to touch i- oH"? Wilkes. Wilkesboro, Xoc. 2Sth, 1837. force. And Anita - . the editor ayB, 'Amen t Thanksgiving Services. Our good friends of Salem celebrated Thauk3giving by a "Harvest Home" serv ice. In front of the pulpit were two pyra mids and a mound, built of sheaf wheat and oats, turnips, radishes, corn, pumpkios, beats, onions, appla-f, tomatoas, squashes, grapes, banauas, oranges, pepper, -flowers, and in fact every thing good to eat and fair to look upon that our bountiful soil brings forth. To the rear of the pulpit was a large festoon, composed of -fruits and edibles and "smellableSt" exteuding across the pulpit Dr. Rondthaler preached the sermon. Serv ices were held both in the morning and ev ening. At the Methodist Church Dr. Burkhead, preached and the attendance was vary lair.

A Ilirrlb!e Murder. The M t. Airy News of last week gives an interesting as well as a horriblo account of a murder committed about fire miles west of that place, and a half mile beyond the North Carolina and Virginia line, in Car roll county, Va., the deed of which was per petrated on the evening of November 17th. The victim was a young lady by the name of Lou Haynes, while Bob Leak Tilley is the accused murderer. Brother Lowery visited the scene of the murder while the Coroner of Curroll county was holding an inquest and learned the particulars. It seems that on the evening of the mur der, the young lady and Tilley, in company with several other young people, were on the road in the vicinity of the spot where the body was found, and that Tilley took away from the girl about $25, which she was coaxing him to return to her. Tilley was said to be intoxicated and begged Lou to g) with him to a neighboring house, threatening to throng rocks at the house if she did not accompany him. For some time she objected but at last consented to go with him (with a view it seems of getting her money.) The other party passed on and this was ihe last ever seen of Lou Haynes alive by any one save tha wretch who de stroyed her young life. It seems that Til ley shot the girl dead and than dumped the body among the branches of a fallen tree and set fire to it, with the hope that it would be entirely consumed, and thus con ceal the crime. The fire rapidly spread among the dry leaves, and was discovered by seveial who rushed to the scene to ex tinguish the fire, supposing that it had ac cidentally gotten out. While endeavoring to put out the flames, they found the half- consumed body of the murdered girl. The bady w:?s so badly burned that those who found it could not identify it. The news was soon spread and a description of tii3 suspected murderer was sent throughout the country. Upon close examina ion by the Coroner's Jury, it was found that the girl had been shot ia the top of the head, the ball passing through the briin, tearing its way through the head, breaking one jaw, and co.uiug out under th i chin. Several of her limbs were burned oft". The body wm 'readily identi as that of Lou Hayne3 by her breast-pin, dress-buttons, etc. Tilley, so far as we can learn, has suc ceeded in evading all efforts to capture him, but it is reported that Gov. Lee has offered a reward of $1,000 for his apprehension. We Gladly Note Its Success. It gives The Sentinel pleasure to note the success of the Schoolteacher, published at this place. It's manger and editor, Prof. W. A. Blair, is an energetic business man as well as a scholarly editor. Looking 'over the field, he found Maryland without an educa tional journal, and he immediately establish ed an office ia Baltimore, securing the servi ces of Mr. G. P. Coler, a graduate of Johns Hopkins University, whom the Baltimore and Ohio RaHroad Co., kept several months in Europe studying industrial education. It htft already captured the field three coun ties have adopted it as the official organ of the teachers, and more are to follow. We hail its- success right gladly. , Waal am I X ?

Catarrh destroys the sense of smell and taste, consumes the cartilages of the nose, and, unless properly treated, hastens its victim into Consumption. It usually in dicates a scrofulous condition of the sys tem, and should be treated, like chronic ulcers and eruptions, through the blood. The most obstinate and dangerous forms of this disagreeable disease Can be cured by takfn? Ayer's Sarsapariila. I have always born more or les troubled witli Scrofula, but never seriously until the spriii" of 1S2. At that time I'tooka severe cold in my head, which, notwith standing all efforts to cure grew worse, mid finally became a chronic Catarrh. It was accompanied with terrible head aches, deafness, a continual coughing, and with great soreness of the ltinjrs. My throat and stomach were so polluted with the mass of corruption from my head that Loss of Appetite. Dyspepsia, and Kmaciatioti totally unfitted" me for busi ness. 1 tried many of the so-called spe cifics for this disease, but obtained no relief until I couuueured taking Ayer's iv.irsuparilla. After usiug two bottles of thin medicine. I noticed an improvement In my condition. When 1 had taken six bottles all traces of Catarrh disappeared, imd my health was completely restored. A. Ii. Cornell, l-'uirfield, Iowa. For thoroughly eradicating the poisons of Catarrh from the blood, take Ayer's Sar saparillaV It will restore health and vigor to decaying and diseased tissues, when everything else fails. Prepared by Dr. J. C. Ay er & Co., Lowell, Mau. Catarrh Is usually the result of a neglected "cold in the head," which causes an inflam mation of the mucous membrane of the nose. L'nless arrested, this inflammation produces Catarrh which, when chronic, becomes very offensive. It is impossible to be otherwise healthy, and, at the same time, afflicted with Catarrh. When promptly treated, this disease may be Cured by the use of Ayer's Sarsapariila. 1 suffered, for years, from chronic Catarrh. My appetite was vorv poor, and I felt miserably. None of the remedies I took afforded nie any relief, until I commenced using Ayer's "Sarsapariila, of which I have now taken five bottles. The Catarrh has disappeared, tnd I am growing strong aud stout again; mv appetite has returned, and my health U "fully restored. Susan L. W. Cook, 5)09 Albany street, Boston Highlands, Mass. I was troubled with Catarrh, and all its attendant evils, for several years. I tried various remedies, and was treated by a number of physicians, but received no benefit until I commenced taking Ayer's Sarsapariila. A fe"W bottles of this medicine cured me of this trouble some complaint, and completely restored my health and strength. Jesse Uojfgs, llulnmu's Mills, Albirinaiic, X. C. If you would streugtheu and invigorato vour system more rapidly and surely than by any other medicine, use Ayer's Sar- sapariNa. It is the safest and most reliable of all blood purifiers. No other reniedv is so effective in cases of chronic Catarrh. Sold by all Druggists. Trice $1 ; six bottles, $. Kru.YAxEMF"tkCo.Y '8 Yankee. Dayton, Kentucky, Western and Michigan Patterns.
