The Durham Sun has been shown three old relics an old pewter pint measure, copper coffee pot and can teen, all captured from the British troops, at Savannah, Ga., in 1778, and since that time 117 years they have been in the possession of the Ross family, and are now owned by G. Q Ross and bis mother. They were brought home from the Revolutionary War by Thomas Ross, grandfather of G. C. Ross, who enlist ed when a boy seventeen years old. The British troops were in Sa vannah, which was besieged by tbe American troops for some time, and when tbe British evacuated their forts the Americans entered and Mr. Boss got the aboye mentioned articles which he bronght home. They are well preserved, with the exception of the historical old can teen, which was accidently broken about 40 year, ago, when Mr. Ross was a boy. The canteen Is made of earthernware and is the exact shape of a terrapin. When captured it was filled with rum and gunpowder (which, we suppose, was given to the British to make them fight). The -- coffee pot is of copper and will hold about three a u arts. The pint meas ure, Mr. Ross says, was used by his grandfather and father to measure brandy with, and he says thousands of gallons of "apple jack" had been meas ured with this old relic The care of Rheumatism has often taxed medical skill, bat it's d retention has been erv easy by an occasional nse of Simmon's liver Regulator.

'I have used it for years for Indigestion and Constipa tion, and also found it gives one relief from a touch of Rheumatism." N. Hughs, tJOTQMDUIf, ii. M. WITH THE MORAVIANS. Mom Than 300 Professions Reported During the Past Pew Weeks The services in the Moravian church and chapels Sunday were of a spe cially interesting character. In the Home church an early prayer-meeting is held an hour before the regular service in order to pray for a blessing on the meetings that follow. Bishop Rondthaler preached an earnest and eloquent sermon in the Home church in the morning and Rev. Mr. Thaeler in the evening. Members will be received in the Home church on Sunday, Decern oer 29th, in connection with the communion service. The Bible class of men, in connection with the Home church Sunday school, is in a particularly flourishing condition. Forty-three men were present Sun day and the numbers are steadily increasing. The class is under the care of Rev. Mr. Thje'.er. Calvary church had a day of special interest. Ten members were added to the list and 112 sat down to the communion table. This branch of the Home church, under the direction of Rev. Mr. Thailer, is in a very pros perous condition and is growing into a strong and flourishing congregation. Centerville church is also a branch of the Home church and is under the care of the Rev. Mr. McCuiston. A revival has been in progress there for some weeks and as a result more than fifty persons made a profession of religion. Of this number 30 joined the Centreville church Sunday night. Bishop Rondthaler received the mem bers in each instance. Very successful revival services have been held in a number of the neighboring Moravian congregations, and the total number of professions that have been made within the last ix weeks in the various Moravian churches in our neighborhood, we learn, exceeds 300 Of these, quite a umber will connect themselves with other churches, as is generally the case with young people whose parents belonur to other denominations. In general this denomination has had an nusual blessing during the past weeks. Rev. J. H. Clewell preached at Odk Grove at 3 o'clock Sunday after noon. THE FORBES CASE. Wachovia Loan & Trust Company are the Plaintiff. It looks now like the special term of Forsyth Superior Court will not con clude its work and be ready for ad journment before the middle of Jan uary. There are a number of "knot ty" questions to be disposed of before the ciyii docket is cleared. The case of the Wachovia Loan & Trust Company, of this city, against W. S. Forbes, of Richmond, was taken up last Monday. It required an haur to select a jury. The plaintiffs ask the jury to render verdict setting aside the sales of some stocks in the Cumberland County Mills, Motley Tobacco Company, of Reidsville, and the High Point Cotton Mill. Col. J. W. Alspaugh sold his inter est, it is claimed, in the several enter prises to Mr. Forbes for $7,000. The atter claims that he loaned the Jolonel money and took the property in exchange therefor. The Trust Company will argue that the property changed bands for no other purpose but to defraud the creditors of Col. Alspaugh. Mr. Forbes says it was a straight deal. Messrs. Jones & Patterson, Arm- field, Turner, Holton and Griffith represent the plaintiffs, while Messrs. Glenn & Manly, Watson & Buxton and H. R. Scott appear for the de fendant. It it thought now that the trial will not be concluded before Thursday night. JAMES B. PACE ASSIGNS. Prominent Business Man and To bacconist of Richmond. The failure of James B. Pace, presi dent of the Flanters' National Bank, of Richmond, was announced Satur day afternoon. He has made the bank secure by deeding to it 8280,000 worth of real estate which will cover his lia bilities to that institution. The total liabilities are about $1,000,000, and the creditors are in five classes. The Vir ginia Trust Company, of which Mr. Pace was also president, Is preferred. His son is a creditor of third class in the sum of $100,000. In the fifth and last class are Northern creditors in sums aggregating $600,000. Mr. Pace resigns as president of the bank and director. Mr J. J. Monta gue succeeded him the former position and Mr. 1. u. w imams in tne latter. The bank is made absolutely secure and has plenty of currency to meet all demands, besides all the other banks have pledged any assistance that may be needed. Mr. Pace has been sick and his business suffered by his absence. The direct cause of the failure is inability of friends, whose paper he held, to meet their obligations. He has, too, been unfortunate in speculation in cotton. The property transferred by Mr. Pace to secure the bank, includes his $100,000 mansion and the Pace block. Mr. Pace was looked upon as one of the wealthiest and most solid business men in the city of Richmond. He was interested in many concerns and is a large tobacco manufacturer. A few years ago he gave $60,000 to erect Park Place Methodist church. LUGGED OFF A HOT STILL. Being Closely Pursued by Revenuers, the Owner Skips. Messrs. Mofflt, Tate and Whitting ton made a raid in the Southern part of Guilford county, Friday, where they captured a large still, 1,900 gal lons of beer and about 50 gallons of low wines.- Tbe still was in full blast, but when tbe men got close to it they saw the still had been carried away, though the fire was yet burning. Knowing it must have been very hot and not see ing how it could be carried very far away, a detail went out in search or it. About four hundred yards away they found It, still red hot, setting in a clump of bushes. The owners, finding it too difficult to carry It further, hid it, but as it wax hot it. set up a big smoke among the leaves ana ousnes. io one was arrested. but the outfit was destroyed. ; Mr. BrougntonpUay be the Man. The Sunday School Board which was recently created will elect a sec retary at a salary from $1,000 to $2,000. He will work In the Sunday school field and have charge of the Baptist supply and bookstore, which is at present situated in uaieign. jar. jn. B. Broughton, of Raliigh, who is here attending court, is mentioned in connection with tbe new orace. The Sunday School Board will elect their secretary at tbe time they see fit. Hood's is Wonderful. No less than wonderful are the cures ac complished by Hood's SarsapariLa, even after other preparations and physician's precriptions have failed. The reason, how ever, is simple. When the blood is enriched and purified, disease disappears and good health returns, and Hood's BaiparUla is the one true blood purifier. . . Hood's Prxi are prompt and efficient and purge, pain r grip. 3, MADE A FINE IMPRESSION REV. DR. W. S. ORE AST AT TEN ARY 6 UN DAY. CEN- A Graceful Introduction and Practi cal and Eloquent Sermons by the New Pastor by Large and Attentive Congregations. 3 A large congregation greeted the new pastors of Centenary church, Rev. W. S. Creasy and Rev. A. W. Plyler.at Sunday morning's service. Introductory to the sermon, Dr. Creasy stated that it was his pleasure and his privilege to introduce to the membership their pastors for the en suing year. He had peculiar sensa tions at that time. He had just left faces with which he had been familiar for four years. He knew them In their places. He felt at home there as he does here, although he knew not more than one in fifty before him. He is In the family at home. He hoped soon to know all in their homes and when he should meet them. He prayed God's blessings upon the year's work. After this graceful introduction, Dr. Creasy proceeded to deliver his first message, which was an appropriate and practical and eloquent effort and made a fine impression. The text was selected from Revela tions 22:16: "I Jesus have sent mine angel to testify unto you these things in the churches. I am the root and the offspring of David, and the bright and morning star." The preacher said he proposed brief ly to call attention to "these things." In these days there is a sort of soften ingan effort to get rid of the fiery things, so tospeak.in the Bible. Some have tried to put away the idea of punishment, but the Book shows God as clear in His declarations as to what will become of the sinner as what will become of the Christian. If any man can argue hell out of the old Book, at the same time he puts heaven out, with all its joys. It is a pleasant thing for a preacher to talk about Heaven and being led by liviog waters and pastures green, but it is equally necessary to tell that in disobedience there is ruin and punishment and death. The preacher applied the term "an gel" to ministers, as messengers of God. Preaching is often looked upon as a literary production instead of as a message from God to help all to wards Heaven. We need to realize that the messenger from God brings a message from God. Of course, the message must be from God's word. Dr. Creasy spoke forcefully upon other divisions of the text, as follows: Jesus, the Saviour; Jesus, the root and offspring of David; Jesus, the bright and morning star. To another large congregation, at night, Dr. Creasy preached another fine and thoughtful sermon, taking as his text the 16th verse of the 15th chapter of Genesis: "And it came to pass, that when the sun went down, and it was dark, behold a sinking fur nace, and a buring lamp that passed between those pieces." This, like the morning sermon, re ceived warm commendation from the hearers. WANTED ANOTHER WIFE. A Yadkin Farmer Did Not Want His H ife Brought Back to Life. The Sentinel is advised that Mrs. Bullock, the lady physician, of Chi cago, who has been stirring up Yad kinville, on the claim that she can cure all kinds of diseases, is now at Tobaccoville, this county. One of her patients in Yadkin, the wife of a farmer, died a few days ago. The Sentinel's informant tells It that the bereaved husband appeared to be greatly grieved over the death of his wife, especially after he had gone to so much expense in trying to restore her to health. Mrs. Bullock, it is said, decided that it would be to her interest to do or say something to the husband. Sitting down by his side, she gave out this comforting message: "Your wife was so low when she be gan taking my treatment that it was impossible to save her; however, if it is your desire, I will raise her from the dead !" The "grieved" husband did not speak for a few moments, but when his reolv came it was to this effect: "No, she is dead now; I don't be lieve I care to have her brought back; I believe I want another wife, any- hcw." ROCKED A TRAIN. Luther Grubbs Brought Here from Walltertown. The incoming passenger train on the Norfolk and Western road was rocked last Sunday near Walkertown One of the Crocks went through a window of the second class car and came near striking a passenger, who was coming to Winston to serve on the jury during tbe special term of court. ' ' The train, which was in charge of Capt. Johnson, was stopped. In com pany with one or two members of the train crew, the captain went back and captured the fellow who threw the rocks. His name is Luther Grubbs, and he is now registered at Jailer Ziglar's hotel. Grubbs is a white man and appears to be about 22 years old. He resisted arrest, but Capt. John son is too good an officer to let a guilty party get away. Grubbs denied that be was tbe man who threw the rocks, but some of the passengers on the train saw him when he let them fly. It is said that his sweetheart was standing by his side and plead with him not to rock the train, but Grubbs refused to heed her request. It Is also claimed that be was drinking. Grubbs can figure on a free trip to the State penitentiary. His crime means several years in this State. Marble Court House Burned. A special from Murphy, the county seat of Cherokee county, the wester most part of the State, says the new court house there was burned Fri day at 5 p. m. All the records were saved. Loss, $40,000. No insurance. The court house was notable, because made of marble, presenting a beauti ful appearance. The fire caught from the flue of a chimney, thus communi cating to woodwork. Capt. Reynolds Dead, Capt. Pryor Reynolds, one of the oldest citizens of Rockingham county, died at hia residence, in Leaksville, Friday. Captain Reynolda was a near kinsman of tbe late Governor More head and tilled many places of honor and trust. $100 Reward, $100.

There has been a good deal of fric tion and misunderstanding relative to the establishment of election precincts as required by an act of the last Legislature and the Caucasian in its current issue presents views taken by ex-Judge Spier Wbitaker, which were coincided with by members of the Supreme Court and others as to the Intent of the act. The clerks of the Superior Court, who have the matter of locating the precincts, seem to be non-plussed, as very few agree as to tbe meaning of the law. The matter is one which affects the entire voting population of North Carolina These places of election must be established by tbe clerk of the court by the 8th of March, 1896, one year from the rati fication of the act of the General Assembly. Judge Whltaker and the other law yers in elucidating the law, state that there should not be more than 350 electors in each precinct; that clerks should not be guided by voting books, but by registration books. In establishing voting precincts, sub-divisions of counties into town ships, cities, villages, etc , must be considered. In other words, bound ary lines of wards and precints cannot be disregarded. If there are 450 voters In one ward and 250 in another, a part of the 450 voters cannot be added to the 250 voters. The 250 voters re main, but the 450 voters j,are divided into two precincts. Clerks are adtised to attend to this matter without further delay, so as to prevent undue baste and confusion. A QUIET HOME MARRIAGE. The Cox-Pay lor Nuptials at Newborn Visiting Groom's Parents. Mr. Herbert Lee Piylor, formerly of Winston, but now of Goldsboro, and Miss Marie Frank Cox, of New bern, were married Tuesday morning, December 10, at the home of Mrs. E. J. Cox, mother of the bride, in the latter city, Rev. R. C. Beaman, pastor of St. Paul's M. E. Church, Goldsboro, officiating. The Journal says they were, married by gas light in the darkened parlor which had been nicely decorated with flowers for the occision. A ring was used In the ceremony. It was a private marriage, no one being nresent except the immediate family and near relatives, except one Intimate friend of the bride. The bride was attired in white organdie with satin trimmings. She carried a bouquet of white roses. The groom wore a black dress suit. The bridal party left immediately after the ceremony for High Point, the former home of the groom's pa rents. Mr. and Mrs. J. D. Paylor. Mr. and Mrs. Paylor,. will, upon leaving High Point, take apartments at Hotel Kennon, Goldsboro, in which the groom is chief clerk. , , Books for Deaf and Dumb Mates. At a recent term of Wake county Court a library, which had been be queathed to the deaf of tbe State, was nnntended for bv the institutions at Mnreanton and Raleigh. The Su- rtrema Court finally decided that the books should be divided between the two schools, the division to be in nronortion to the number of pupils in each school. It ia not unlikely that one of the schools will sell its share to the other, so that the library may re main intact. :.-.Jv-::. ..." - - - . i The body most be well nourished how, to prevent sickness.

DTJN'd IR1DK REVIEW. A Qaiet Week Without Any Disturs bances Failures. New York, Dec. 14. R. G. Dun & Co. say today in .their weekly review of trade: Failures for the first week of December show liabilities of $3,- 104,831 against $4,036,806 last year and $4 761,409 in 1S93; in manufacturing $1,157,760 against $1,427,415 last year nd $1,730,044 in 1893, and in trading $1,892 821, against $2,401,451 last year nd $2,o91,36) in 1893 Failures for the week have been 338 in the United States, against 349 last year, and 54 n Canada, against 40 last year. It has oeen a very quiet week, with out any disturhurauce. Prices of manufactured products slowly recede froui the high water mark of specula tion, and no material increase in de mand is now expected until after the holidays, but there is general confi dence that greater activity will then appear. speculation in products is very brisk, and in stock decidedly inactive, except in a few industrials. Tbe outgo of gold does not expand, and the out ward movement ot products is a shade arger. Clearings are 10 4 per cent. more than last year. AT WEST END. The First Preaching Service Was Held Sunday Night. Rev. A. W. Plyler, the assistant pas tor of Centenary church, preached to Winston congregation for the first time Sunday night, at the West Eud Sunday school room. He was greeted by about as large an audience as the space fronting the rostrum would accommodate. Mr. Plyler took as his text, the 12th, 13th and 14th verses of the 3d chapter of Pbilippians: "Not as though I had already attained, either were already perfect: but I follow after, if that I may apprehend that- for which l also am apprehended of Christ Jesus. Brethren, I count not myself to have apprehended: but this one thing I do. forgetting those things which are be hind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before, 1 press to ward the mark for tbe ,pnz-i of the high calling of Gud in Christ Jesus " The discourse was short and point ed and all were impressed by the earnestness and zeal of the young preacher whose special mission among us is to further the interests of the proposed new church in thj Western part of the city.
