Scrofula, Salt Rheum
And All Other Blood Diseases How
They May Bo Cured.
Speaking simply from what Hood's Sar
saparilla has done, not only once or twice,
but in thousands of cases, we can honestly
6ay that it is the best remedy for all dis
eases of the blood, whatever the cause.
By its peculiar Combination, Propor
tion and Process, it possesses positive
medicinal merit Peculiar to Itself.
It has cured the most virulent cases
of Scrofula and Salt Kheum, even when
11 other prescriptions and medicines
have failed to do any good.
Blood poisoning, from whatever ori
gin, yields to its powerful cleansing, puri

Tbe Sad Affair Occurred at the Chat
bam County Coal Mines A Pitiful
Scene -"Women and Children
Cr ing Heard for 20 Miles.
From the Greensboro Record, Dec, 19
A report, considered authentic,
reaches us this p. m., that there was
an explosion in tbe coal mines at
Egypt this morning-, whereby forty
three men were killed.
Egypt is not a telegraph station and
further particulars cannot be learned.
It is on the G. F. & Y. V. Railway,
not far from Ore Hill.
The following was sent us by con
ductor W. G. Dodson, of the G. F. &
Y. V., who passed there this p. m. on
his run:
"This a. m. between 8 and 9 o'clock,
the coal mine at Cummock (formerly
Egypt) blew up. Sixty miners went
down to work early this morning and
only nineteen were tatten out after the
explosion. Mine is five or six hundred
feet deep. There was a large quantity
of dynamite in the mine. Cannot
loarn the cause of disaster, probably
tire-damp. A large force of men are
at the shaft, trying to rescue the en
tombed miners.
'There is little hope of taking out
any of the men alive. Those who sue
ceeded in escaping are badly burned,
some fatally."
Gapt. Campbell passed Cumnock at
1 o'clock today and says the exact
number killed was thirty-three.
The News and Observer prints a
telegram from Sanford, N. C., regard
ing the terrible explosion. It says:
At 9 o'clock a. m. Thursday, shortly
after a day force numbering sixty
seven men had gone on duty at the
Cumnock coal mines, 6 miles west of
here, a terrible gas or Are damp explo
sion occurred with fatal effect.
Upon hearing the report the people
of the village and relatives of the en
tombed miners hastened to the scene,
but for some time they were unable
to gain any tidings from below. After
pumping fresh air into the shafts for
some time several miners were pre
vailed upon to venture down and in
vestigate. They found and brought
out twenty -live men from slopes num
ber 2 and 3.
Five or six of them were badly
wounded and some of them will prob
ably die; others were slightly wound
ed. A mule and two men were killed
in slope number 2-
After considerable delay the search
ing party entered slope number 1,
where they were greeted with a most
horrible and ghastly sight. Dead
men, fearfully mutilated, were found.
Some of t hem were partly covered up
with pieces of coal, timber and other
The searching party came up and
reported what they had found. At 4
o'clock ten or twelve miners went
down to bring up the dead bodies, but
at last accounts none of tbe dead men
had been rescued.
It is believed that 43 men were kill
ed. Their names are not obtainable
at this writing. Several of them were
negroes and foreigners and the rest
natives of North Carolina. Several
bad families living at Cumnock.Eight
of the dead miners were from Penn
sylvania and expected to return to
that State tomorrow to visit their rel
atives. A quantity of dynamite was in the
mine and exploded, wrecking coalcafs
and splitting missive pieces of timber
nto kindling wood.
Mothers, wives and sisters were
around in the mines all day, wetping
and wringing their hands with grief,
expecting every minute to see the life
less form of some loved one brought
up. Excitement runs high.
Oar State Gets the Best of Viginia In
the Boundary Dispute.
Raleigh Press-Visitor.
Dr. Watson, of Warren county, a
member of the commission appointed
by Gov. Carr to settle the boundary
dispute between this State and Vir
ginia, is in the city on a visit. Dr.
Watson is just from the boundary linef
where the commissions from the two
States have been working jointly in
locating tbe line.
Dr. Watson reports very severe
weather in tbe Eastern section of the
State, where they have been engaged
lately. The commission has located
the line bordering the counties of
Hertford, Northampton and Warren
in JNortn Carolina, and iNotaway coun
ty in Virginia. They are now running
the line between Vance county, North
Carolina, and Mecklenburg county.
Virginia.So far the line has been loca
ted for a distance of 80 miles: 30 more
miles remain for the commission to go
Dr. Watson says North Carolina has
got the best of the division so far. At
the present rate the voting population
of the State is being largely augment

St. Louis, Mo., Dec 17. A meeting
was held at the office of the Business
Men's League yesterday, at which it
was finally determined to make a spe

National Convention io 1896. Signed
pledges from five National Commit

Tbe Wife ot Nathan Shores, of Yad
kin County.
The Tilden (Yadkin county) corres
pondentof the Statesville Landmark
writes to that paper as follows:
Mr. C. G. Ct lvard, whose mill was
burned some time ago, and who is re
building, always thought that the fire
that destroyed his mill was incendiary.
Atilast the secret is out, and In conse
quence heretof ire honored citizens
are in t rouble. Mr. Col vard has been
tracing this matter for some time
but quiet'y, so other parties thought
it had completely died away, when
papers were issued for the arrest of an
aged lady by the name of Mrs. Rhoda
Shores, the wife of Nathan Shores,
mother of Eii Shores, the latter the
great liquo dealer of this neighbor
Mrs. Shores was triven a preliminary
hearing and bound over to the Super
ior court of Yadkin. In default of
bond she was committed to jail. On
Saturday she gave bond and was re
leased until court. Eli, her son, it is
thought, started to run away and got
as far as the railroad and heard of his
mother's trouble and returned to aid
her. It is not thought that she did
the act herself, as there is good evi
dence as to others, and other arrests
will be made as soon as possible.
The cause of the burning is thought
to be on account of sickness, as the
mill pond covered several acres and
consequently caused chills and fever
for several miles around. But burning
the mill had no effect on the health of
the community, for since the burning
the pond has been there and still re
mains, and as the new mill is nearly
completed, it is evident that the pond
will remain for some time yet.
Many Vanderbilts to Help at tbe
House Warming
Mr. George Vanderbilt, says Town
Topics, seems at last to see his way
out of the woods. After years of
work on the part of the quarrymeD,
masons, plasterers, carpenters and ar
chitects, he is to have a house to live
in on his North Carolina estate a
comfortable, snug little box to which
he can ask a friend for a week's shoot-
ine. with the distinct assurance that
the friends can have a room and a bed
all to himself. Christmas time is to
see the formal opening of the house
n the presence of a grand conclave or
all the Vanderbilt clan. When Santa
Claus makes his midnignt visit and
tumbles down the multiplicity of
chimneys, he will have his sleigh
drawn by golden shod deer. Dasher
and Prancer and Dunder and JbJixen
will have their dainty little antlers so
brilliant with gold that the Tarheel
natives, seeing it pass overhead, will

are to be glorious rubies. Each branch

She Passed Through Winston on Her
Return Home.
Mrs. May Bullock, the "cure all"
lady physician, who claims Chicago as
her home, passed through Winston
last week.
A Sbntinel representative met her
at the; depot. She declined to give
the number of cures she had made du
ring her stay in Yadkin county. When
asked for a statement she replied that
she had nothing to say further than
that if any one desired to learn any
thing of her cures they could call on
the people she had treated. She re
ferred to Mr. Phillips, at x aoKinvine,
and Mr. Wolf, at Tobaccoville.
She said she had been in this section
five weeks and was then on her return
If Mrs. Bullock is not a "humbug"
her general appearance is deceiving.
She said to the reporter: "You will
hear a great many complaints about
me, but all I ask is for the people to
call on the two gentlemen where I
No Compromise Made.
The Greensboro Record quotes Dr.
Lash and Dr. Benbow as saying that
there is no truth in the report regard
ing a compromise between the securi
ties of the North State Improvement
Company and their creditors. Dr.
Benbow admits, however, that an
effort was made to adjust matters,but
there were no creditors present ex
cept those who claimed priority of
their debts.
The cases against Dr. Lash aDd
Benbow were to have been tried at
the present term of Guilford Court,
but owing to the crowded condition of
tbe criminal docket it will doubtless
be postponed.

Mr. George D. Ramsay and Miss Mary
D. Cowles the Contracting Par
ties and tbe Presbyterian
Manse the Place.
From Daily Sentinel, Dec 19.
"It is whispered that a marriage,
around which clusters much that is
romantic, will occur in the Twin-City
tonight. If there is no break in
Cupid's arrangements tbe particulars
will be given in tomorrow's Senti
nel." The above announcement, which ap
peared in last evening's Sentinel,
was read with intense interest and
aroused the curiosity of those who are
fond of reading about "how the
couple fooled the old folks."
Before the issue was printed the
event referred to above had taken
place. The ceremony was performed
in the parlor of the First Presby
terian parsonage by the pastor, Rev.
Robt. E. Caldwell.
Miss Mary D. Cowles, daughter of
Capt. O. D. Cowles, of the United
States Army, recently located at
Washington City, and Mr. George D.
Ramsay, son of Admiral T. M. Ram
say, of the United States Navy, Wash
ington, are the names of the lovers
who created the surprise and joined
hands and hearts.
Miss Cowles has been here several
weeks, visiting her aunt, Mrs. Dr. H.
V. Horton, Main street, Salem. Mr.
Ramsay arrived last Saturday to com
plete the arrangements for the
Dr. Horton, by some means, was
given a hint that the marriage was to
take place yesterday without the
knowledge of Miss Cowles' parents.
Not knowing whether or not Capt.
and Mrs. Cowles would be willing to
the match, tbe doctor wired the father
a message at Wilkesboro (where the
parents are visiting relatives) advising
him what might be expected. A re
ply came . It read about as follows :
"Prevent marriage if possible. Will
arrive there tonight."
Dr. Horton sent another message
stating that he could not change the
program unless he (Cowles) would
agree not to interfore with the mar
riage after his arrival,
c Capt. Cowles wired his consent and
asked that the ceremony be postponed
until after his arrival on tbe eveining
The couple were unwilling to take
any risks fearing that perchance the
"old gentleman" might change his
A carriage was ordered, the couple
were driven to tbe parsonage, and at 5
o'clock, in the presence of Drs. H. V.
and P. E. Horton, P. H. Lybrook, R.
G. Galloway and Miss Abbie Caldwell,
the preacher pronounced them hus
band and wife.
After the marriage arrangements
were made for the trip home. Capt.
Cowles, father of the bride, arrived
from Wilkesboro on the same train
that the happy couple bearded for
Washington. Just as he stepped off
the car steps he was happily greeted
by his daughter and son-in-law. He
forgave their disobedience and extend
ed a cordial invitation to his children
to remain here over night and today
go with him on a visit to the other
members of the family in Wilkes.
Tickets to Washington bad already
been purchased, therefore, father's in
vitation could not be accepted.
Before the train moved off, Capt.
Cowles opened bis money purse and
made a most liberal contribution to
his daughter who was then the smil
ing and happy bride of Mr. George D.
The groom holds a position in tbe
office of tbe Southern Railway at
Mr. and Mrs. Ramsay left for Wash
ington carrying with them tbe best
wishes of not only Capt. Cowles, but
every one who had been made ac
quainted with the event which was
full of love and romance.
A Bill Passed Appropriating $100,000
for a Commission.
Washington, Dec. 18. Mr. Hitt
(Republican, of Illinois) rose in tbe
House this morning as soon as it had
been called to order and and asked for
unanimous consent for the considera
tion of a bill to empower the Presi
dent to appoint a commission to con
sider the Venezuelan boundary
question and to appropriate $100,000
for the expenses thereof. The text of
tbe bill is as follows
"Be it enacted by the Senate and
House of Representatives of the
United States of America, in Congress
assembled, That the sum of $100,000,
or so much thereof as may be neces
sary, be, and the san.e is hereby, ap
propriated for the expenses of a
commission to be appointed by tbe
President to investigate and report
upon the true divisional line between
the republic of Venezuela and British
A scene of considerable excitement
followed the request of Mr. Hitt for
unanimous consent to consider the
bill, which had been read by the clerk
and loudly applauded.
The bill was passed without oppo
sition. Married Wednesday.

Wilkes Leads.
Up to a few years ago the county of

the State. It Is now claimed that in
the county of Wilkes alone there are
more distilleries than in this entire
revenue district.
He Makes the Sweetest an A Most
Toothsome Meat.
One of Winston's well-known busi
ness men, who for marry years resided
in the Eastern part of the State,
where the old-fashioned razor back
hog roams, remarked not long since
that the improved stock porkers were
not in it for sweet, toothsome meat.
His views are endorsed by Dr. Kings
bury, of the Wilmington Messenger,
who says:
The best way, as the Messenger has
more than once urged, is not to raise
tae huge porkers, but good average
bogs. It has gone farther and favored
the old-fashioned razor back breed,
v ell fattened, and because they make
tUa Rweetest, most toothsome meat.
North Carolina there has been a
decided advance for two or three
years in hog raising. This fall and
winter our State exchanges have
given encouraging reports as to the
hog crop. It looks as if the farmers
and others had done better in 1895
in this business of raising home meat
than la any previous year since the
great war ended. That is right It
is one of the ways to independence
and prosperity. Make your own hog
and hominy, and plenty of it, and
when you tire of it try "bacon and
greens," and after that the delicious
jowl and turnip salad. To increase
the variety try to learn to prepare
Boston beans, but do not omit to add
the piece of pork.
Legality of the Lease of the North
Carolina Railway.
The State Farmers' Alliance has at
last taken the step of instituting suit
to test the legality of the lease of the
North Carolina railway to tbe South
ern railway. It is a most important
case. When the Alliance was in ses
sion last August, at Gary, the direc
tors of the JNorth Carolina railway
met at Burlington, made the lease.
and ratified it within twenty-four
hours. The Alliance at that time
desired to institute injunction pro
ceedings to prevent the Jease, but was
nformed by a lawyer that it would be
ten days before the ratification would
take place, so nothing was done until
t was too late. Ex-Judge Schenck,
Spier Whitaker and Charles A. Cook
now appear as counsel for the Al
liance, and file a motion for the use of
the Attorney General's name in the
nature of a quo warranto to annul the
lease and repeal the charter of the
North Carolina road. The matter
comes up before the Attorney General
at Raleigh next Monday, as be must
pass upon the question of the use of
ma name, it is not thought he will
do this unless Governor Carr, Presi
dent Alexander, and the directors of
the North Carolina railway are rep
resented before him. The action the
Alliance takes is a proceeding against
the Southern railway.
Pledge Themselves; to Raise a Com
pany "in New York in Case of War.
New York, Dec. 18. The officers
of the Confederate Veteran Camp of
New York, met in special executive
session last night aud unanimously
adopted the following resolutions:
Whereas.the message of the President

"Resolved, That tbe President has
taken a position heartily endorsed by

no step backward. And be it fur
Resolved, That we, the Confederate

The Ten Thousand Dollar Suit Against
the Street Car Company.
The case of T. J. Wilson, Jr., against
the street car company, for $10,000
damages, has been continued to tbe
February term of Forsyth Superior
court, to give the defendants time to
answer tbe complaint. We under
stand that tbe application of the
defendants for removal, upon tbe
ground that they cannot secure jus
tice in this county, was not passed
upon at this term.
She Died of Bright's Disease, and Not
of Inhuman Treatment.
Dr. Joel Hill, of Lexington, says he
attended the wife of Henry Raker, of
Davidson county, during her illness,
and that she died of Bright's disease,
and not from injuries iDfiicted by her
husband. The Sentinel is pleased
to learn that the report published re
garding Mr. Raker's inhuman treat
ment to bis wife is a mistake.
Of Interest to Hunters.
It is said that when the sun is visi

compass. This information will be of
value to anglers and other sportsmen
in emergency. Point the hour hand
of a watch to the sun, and tbe South
is exactly balf way etween tbe hour

example, if it be 4 o'clock point the
band indicating 4 to the sun, and the

If it be 8 o'clock in tbe morning
point the hand indicating 8 to the
sun and the figure 10 on the watch is

Don't Like 'Em.
Bro. Kingsbury, of the Wilmington
Messenger, evidently, is not not a
great admirer of evangelists. Refer-
ing to Bill Fife, he says:
"Rev." Wm. P. Fife, the "Drummer
Evangelist," tbe papers continue to
all mm, (he ought to enter the min
istry) has had a big work as reported
at Front Royal, Va. He had 225 re
ported conversions. It was the big
gest meeting ever held in that county,
Warren. He went from Front Royal
to Alderson, W. V. "Of the-morethan
900 reported conversions at Winston,
N. C., only some 150 or less, have join
ed the churches.
A Novel Escape.
A prisoner on the chain gang , of
Guilford made his escape in a novel
fashion. He told a guard that in the
woods near by he saw a cat chasing a
rabbit. The guard went to see this
sight and the sly convict fled.
There is nothing that causes greater dis
comfort and misery than the constantly re
curring Headache. "My wife's health was
very-inilifferent, having Headache contin
ually, and just two packages of Simmons
liver Regulator released her from all Head
ache and gave tone and vigor to her whole
system. I baVe never regretted it's use."
11. B. rierd lit. Ysrnon, Ky.
Mr. Liney Introduces a Bill for a
$75,000 Appropriation.
Congressman Linney has made a
movement towards a public building
for Winston.
Last week he introduced a bill to
appropriate $75,000 for this purpose.
Mr. Linney was altogether too mod
est in the amount named, but con
certed and vigorous action on the part
of our people, with a full statemeut
of the situation, may succeed in rais
ing the amount.
At any rate, let our citizens pull
with Mr. Linney for the building even
if we cannot secure more than the
sum named.

An Old English Custom That Has Not
Entirely Disappeared.
A custom at one time prevalent in
England, and still observed iu Konw

country, is that of plac-iutr an im

root ot a great tree in the wide
chimney pltee. This log is otrn
called the Yule log-, and it was on
Christmas eve that it was put on the
wide hearth. Around it would gath

rejoicing, while the one authorized to
light it was obliged to have clean

Our Sunday Nitfht Train.
"See what Sam Jones and Fife have
done? We used to get a good rest on
Sunday, running only one train to
Greensboro. Now we have to make
two trips same as any other day." So
spoke a railroadman last night. Ot
