Made and Merit Maintains the confidence
of the people in Hood's Sarsaparilla. If a
medicine cares you when sick; if it makes
wonderful cures everywhere, then beyond
all question that medicine possesses merit.
That is just the truth about Hood's Sar
saparilla. We know it possesses merit
because it cures, not once or twice or a
hundred times, but in thousands and
thousands of cases. We know it cures,
absolutely, permanently, when all others
fail to do any good whatever. We repeat

The Hospitality of the Young Hostess
Atlords an Evening of Great Pleas
ure Miss Abble Caldwell and,
I. H . Blair Win the Prizes.
The Bachelor Maids' Club and in
vited guests were entertained Tburs-
j day by Miss Mamie Gray, at her
! beautiful home on Cherry street, this
I being the third of the series of the
i Club entertainments.
! That the occasion was one of great
pleasure to the participants is the
universal verdict of those who were
so fortunate as to be present, and to
say that the fair young hostess fully
sustained her justly earned reputa
tion for hospitality will convey to
others, in some measure, and idea of
Ibe genuine enjoyment of the event.
This entertainment was entitled a
Menu Party aud the principal diver
sion of the evening:, and one which af
forded a bountiful store of merriment,
was what we would term a menu of
object riddles. Each truest was pro
vided with a menu card, upon which
was written the heads of the different
courses, and the description of the
different dishes was to be guessed and
written in blank spaces, the guessing
being based upon objects placed be
fore the guests.
For instance: "Oysters" was the
first item In the course and as an in
dication that they were "Blue Points,"
wooden toothpicks with one end stain
ed with blue ink were displayed. Un
der the head of "Entrees," was shown
a piece of earth and a pin, denoting
"ttrra-pln."Under"Game," was shown
a curly lock, and those who guessed
correctly said it was "hare." And so
on, throughout the list
Prizes for the largest number of
conect solutions of the riddles were
awarded Miss Abbie Caldwell and
Mr. D. H Blair.
When the mock menu bad been
disposed of, then followed a genuine
menu of substantiate and delicacies,
which added another enjoyable fea
ture to the pleasures of a very pleas
ant occasion.

and gentlemen comprising Miss
Gray's guests last evening :

Will Appeal to Salem Brotherhood
for Assistance.
A number of Moravians and their
friends, residing io Raleigh, are very
much Interested in the mat
ter of organizing a congregation
and erecting a church building in the
capital city.
The Tribune says there are about
sixteen adult Moravians residing in
and close around that city, most of
them having come from Salem, the
Moravian stronghold of North Caroli
na, and it is to the Salem churches that
the Raleigh Moravians will look for
very much financial assistance if they
undertake the proposed organization.
The Tribune says: The Salem church
owns, In the name of her trustees sev
eral hundred thousand dollars worth
of real estate in Forsyth county, much
of it being situated in the twin city of
Winston-Salem. Besides, the church
has large sums of money out on inter
est and otherwise invested, and em
ploy a secretary and treasurer, who
devotes his entire time to the manage
ment of the congregation's affairs.
The famous Salem Academy and Col
lege is also the property of the Mora
vian Broterhood.
They have already erected a num
ber of commodious church edifices at
various points In Forsyth and adja
cent counties, and the Raleigh con
tingency are quite hopeful that they
can be interested in the capital city.
There is a splendid field for such a
church to flourish.
One From Spach Bros, and Another

ers, for a site to enlarge their plant on
South Side. The consideration was
The second was a deed from Spach

The Sentinel learns that it la
quite probable that a new enterprise
will be established at an early date on
the last named site.

Atlanta, Jan. 14. Dr. J. . B. Haw
thorne, the well known - Baptist
Ereacher, has gone to Florida for his
ealtb, which is poor. On Sunday,
at the First Baptist church, Dr. Lan
drum read - a letter from . Dr. Haw
thorne, stating that he was In badly
broken health, and that his trip to
Florida was to regain his health. For
more than a year Dr. Hawthorne has
been In bad health. Before he left At
lanta for Nashville, his new charge,
his health was failing. . Since bis
residence in that city It has not Im
proved, in fact, it has grown worse.
New Process for Making; Better.
Mr. Benj. R. Hand, of Goldsboro, Is
the inventor of . a machine to obtain
the butter from milk fresh from the
cow, and without the necessity of
separating the cream or souring the
milk. The butter Is secured in from
two to two hours and a half, and the
yield is greater than by any other
nrocess. He is also the inventor of a
steel railroad tie that Is said to be
I superior to a dozen or more that hava
J been invented in this country.
"Uncle Jake" Hicks and "Bill"
Swan, of the Southern.
The familiar faces of "Jake" Hicks
and "Bill" Swan, the veteran locomo
tive engineers, who have hauled daily
the passenger trains for the past
thirty years, on the North Carolina
road, between Greensboro and Golds
boro, are no longer seen by the citi
zens along the line of tbatidivision of
the Southern.
Both men have rounded up their
three score years and the laws of
nature demand and the authorities
that rule the Southern Railway have
decreed that they give place to Young
er heads and stronger arms.
Mr. Hicks has been given and is now
pulling the throttle on the short line
between Winston and Mocksville,
while bis friend Mr. Swan is filling a
similar position on the short division
between Chapel Hill and University
"Uncle Jake," as Mr. Hicks is
familiarly called by railroad men,
pulled the first train over the road be
tween Winston and GreeDsboro and
there are many citizens in the Twin
City who have pleasant recollections
of the man who excited the curiosties
of a number of people when Winston
Salem was first put in railroad con.
nection with the outside world.
"Uncle Jake" was interviewed by
the Argus just before he left Golds
boro for his present run. In reply to
a question asking him how he liked
the change made by the Southern, he
said :
"It suits me very well. I am now
getting old and the long runs I had
been making daily for the last thirty
years was getting to be too much for
me. Of course I felt deep regret at
giving up my place because I had been
on the line so long and felt more at
home there than anywhere else. I
have been asked by several people if I
could be contented off the road. 1
have no desire to ever pull another
throttle after leaving my old run and
if I was able to live without it I
would never mount a cab again."
He says be is now 64 years old. He
went to work for the North Carolina
Railroad in 1857 and during the 39
years service was only off the road
four months, and that was a few years
ago when the regulations required
that every engineer should read train
orders and sign his name thereto. As
he could do neither he had to quit
work and learn to read and write. Up
to that time be could only tell the de
nomination of a wood check by the
color it bore. In all tbe years he bad
hauled the passenger trains be never
ut a wheel on the ground and never
isobeyed a train order.
He was taught to read and write by
his good wife and as soon as he became
qualified to fill the requirements his
old run was returned to him.
When the Yankees invaded the
town of Burlington Mr. Hicks was
delegated to guard the company's
valuable property at that place and
now boasts of holding conferences
with such men as Gen. Johnson, Gen.
Wade Hampton and others, as one of
bis fondest recollections.
"Uncle Jake" has three 'children
two sons and one daughter. The
sons, like the father, are noble men,
good engineers and hold first-class
positions. The daugbter married a
railroad engineer and he too has a
good job which proves that he is a
thorough "throttle puller."
Greensboro is tbe home of the
father and one of tbe sons, but if the
former continues to run the Mocks
ville vestibule he will doubtless
become a citizen of the same town
where the genial Capt. Hawkins re
sides when be is at borne.
Mr. Swan, "Uncle Jake's" old part
ner, Is said to be a quiet, unostenta
tious, unassuming gentlemen, of
moderate habits, and has for the
greater part of the time made regutor
trips over the North Carolina road
every day for the past 35 years.
It is a custom on some roads to
retire from service on full pay old
engineers who had rendered long and
faithful service. Tbe officials of tbe
Southern Railway could not find a
more worthy pair on which to exer
cise such a philanthropic spirit than
the veteran locomotive engineers
named above.
The lot that befalls the average
engineer is a ;hard one at best. His
fiathway is uncertain. He places his
ife in jeopardy every trip he makes.
While passengers are taking their
ease on velvet cushions and watching
with pleasure the picturesque land
scapes as they are brought to view,, or
sleeping in palatial Pullmans., the
brain and nerve of the engineer at
the throttle are undergoing the heav
iest strain and deep anxiety weighs
on his soul. This is tbe case at night
more so than in the day. Plunging
through the darkness at a rate of 50
or 60 miles an hour at a time when
deep trestles are uncertain is a risk
that not many of us care to take.
This is what these aged engineers
have done times almost without num
ber and this willingness to sacrifice
their lives Id the service of the public
is tbe cause of the deeprooted venera
tion in the hearts of their many ac
quaintances. Their lives have been
devoted and almost spent In tbe
cause they espoused, and now as the
shadows are lengthening for them tbe
world should deal very; gently with
them. Soon the Great Train Dis
patcher will send His orders by tbe
white-winged messenger to take them
to the golden roads in the Celestial
State Council Jr. O. V. A. M.
The State Council of the Junior
Order United American Mechanics
will meet in Greensboro February
Tbe order has made good progress
during the past year and tbe reports
from the various councils will no
doubt be both 1 encouraging and In
teresting, Will Walk All the Way.

To The Editors of The Sentinel.
: In your issue of tbe 13th you
copied a notice from the Raleigh Tri
bune, which incidentally refers to the
great wealth of the Moravian church.
As the Moravian cause suffers great
injury from such notices, you will al
low me to make the following brief
1. With regard to the real estate of
the Salem church, no reliable estimate
can be made. It owns several hun
dred acres of land in or near Winston
Salem, which lie in the shape of
woodland, field or meadow. Tbe most
available parts of it, in the so-called
Winston reservation, have been offer
ed for sale, but have found no pur
chasers. Even the land companies
with better located lots, are doing
very little. To estimate Moravian
church wealth by unsaleable lands is,
therefore, a very precarious under
taking. It is counting chickens
which may never be batched.
2. With regard to invested funds, it
may be said that, along with the sub
scriptions of the members of the
Salem congregation, tbe Income
barely suffices to meet the expenses of
its religious, educational and chari
table work. In fact, there is, in some
years a deficit.
3 The Moravian Bishop draws no
salary for bis episcopal services,
which are often of an onerous charac
ter. If be did, there would be no
income, at all, available to aid in
building Moravian cbapels. He sup
ports himself solely by means of pas
toral and other labors. If friends of
the church would kindly mention this
fact, it would probably go farther
than any other means to quiet erron
eous rumors of Moravian church
4 The Moravian church, we are happy
to say, is moving forward, but it is
doing it on precisely the same prin
ciple on which other churches are
progressing. Many of the members are
working hard and are giving liberally
out of their own pockets Such pro
gress as has recently been made, has
been determined by the liberality of
members and friends.
Edward Rondthaler,
Bishop of the Southern Province of
the Moravian Church.
A Wilkes County Man on the Inaugu
ration Punch.
From Daily Sentinel, Jan. 14th.
Republicans who went to Raleigh
to attend the inauguration and make
a bid for an office, are returning to
their respective homes. Henry Ker
ner came in last night. He is not an
office seeker he simply went down to
see the new officials sworn in.
News comes from Raleigh that Ruff
Henderson is still there and is in
rather bad humor. They say he is
"cussin" right and left because there
is no good "pie" in sight
"Ruff" is still in Rtleigh. He
wants to be Raidroad Commissioner
and says he must have it but a Re
publican who has been in Raleigh says
"Ruff" will never remember get
ting it.
A Wilkes county man passed up the
road yesterday on his return from the
inauguration. He expressed himself
as being disgusted with a portion of
the program at the Governor's recep
tion Tuesday night. Why be left so
suddenly and before the festivities
were over he explained to a friend at
the depot in Greensboro.
"Why, they had 40 gallons of
punch," he exclaimed.
"Never beard of a Wilkes county
man objecting to such a thing," said
tbe other.
"Of course," said the Wilkes man,
"I didn't object to the amount, but to
the quality. Why, that stuff was so
weak it made me tired drinking it.
A whole barrel of it would not make
a.fellow even feel good."
"Not if he was from Wilkes coun
ty," retorted the other, and then the
man's train came along and be left
for a place where he said be knew he
could get something at least stimula
Factional Contest Over Sherman's
Successor Threatened.
Cleveland, Ohio, Jan. 14. Sim
ultaneously with the announcement
that Senator Sherman will be the suc
cessor of Secretary Olney comes the
report that Senator-elect Foraker is
sharpening bis knife preparatory to
resisting tbe attempt of Chairman
Hanna to seize Sherman's castoff Sen
atorial toga. Silas Merchant, a prom
inent Foraker Republican in this sec
tion of- Ohio, made thts announce
ment last evening: "I have just re
ceived some information which rather
frightens me. I have it from a good
source that the fight between Foraker
and Sherman over Mark Hanna's can
didacy for the United States Senate is
on in earnest. Foraker is determined
to prevent Hanna from going to tbe
Senate, and the fight is going to be a
bitter one."
A Bill Agreed Upon.
The committee from tbe Teachers'
Assembly appointed to present a bill
for the better supervision of the pub
lic schools, which met in Raleigh,
adjourned last week. It has agreed
upon a bill to be presented to the
joint meeting of tbe educational com
mittee next Friday, deeming it not
practicable to have the bill considered
oerore me senatorial ugnt la over.
The general features of the bill agreed
upon are division of the State into
educational districts, with an average
of two ot three counties, each district
to be In charge of a superintendent
who must have experience in teaching
and whose duties shall be to examine
teachers and grant certificates; hold
educational institutes and instruct
teachers in the subjects taught In the
public schools, etc
Norfolk & Western Earnings.
The estimated gross receipts of the
Norfolk & Western Railway for the

This is an increase of $16,914 over the

Made so by the Regular Populist Leg
islature Caucus Early This Morn
ing The Situation Becomes
More Confusing.
Raleigh, N. C, Jan. 16. Dr. Cyrus
B. Thompson, the new Secretary of
State, is the nominee of the majority
Populist caucus against Seter Pritch
ard for United States Senator.
'He was named by t'je Populist cau
cus which adjourned at 1 o'clock this
Thompson was waited on by a com
mittee, which escorted htm to the
caucus. He made a short, but stir
ring speech accepting the nomination,
which was made unanimous.
Senator Butler is in high spirits
over the nomination and the work
accomplished last night.
The nomination Is claimed by But
ler's friends to be nothing short of
brilliant uniting the Democrats,
Populists, part of the bolters and some
of the Republicans.
The Pritchard forces are confused,
tbough they will not admit it.
Another point claimed for Thomp
son, who, as a Populist was electeJ
Secretary of State, is that his office,
which pays $4,500, will be filled with a
Republican, tbe appointment to be
made by Governor Russell.
Notwithstanding Russell is Pritch
ard's friend, it is thought that tha
office is not without weight in the
whole play. Some Democrats may
find it bard to support. Thompson,
who was bitter against them in the
recent campaign, but it is thougue
that they will stand together against
Hardison Parker, of Randolph, and
Harris, of Hyde, have returned to the
regular caucus. It is known that
other members of the minority will
return. It Is intimated that in ah
seven will return.
Populist State Chairman Fountain
says: "1 name Thompson as the win
ner. All tbe Populists in the State
love him The populists of North
Carolina will have no patieuce with
fi'puusts who rail to support him."
At noon yesterday Senator Butler
met the committee of Populist bolt
ers. A dramatic Incident resulted.
Butler told tbe committee that if tbe
minority did not return and abide by
the majority caucus the latter would
crush it to atoms and drive it out of
tbe party. Butler was then asked the
question, "Suppose the majority cau
cus will not take this step?" and his
instant reply was: "Then, I will
take steps to do it myself."
Senator McCakey, chairman and
spokesman of tbe bolters said to But
ler: "If we are not given teims suita
ble to us, we will never go back. If
these are your terms w-3 will never re
enter tbe caucus."
Some of the Bills Introduced Ad
journed Till Tuesday.
Special to the Sentinel.
Raleigh, N. O, Jan. 15 Amoi g
the bills introduced in tbe House this
morning, were the following:
To ask Congress to rebuild the Ar
senal at Fayetteville.
To require the amount of purchase
money marked on railroad th kets.
To prohibit the existence of trusts
and combines which will tend to les

The Doctor's Speech Before the State
Electoral College.
Dr. Tyre York made one of the
Bryan nominating speeches in the
State Electoral College at Raleigh
last week. It is stated that the Dr.
was given a hearty welcome and that
his speech did not disappoint his
many admirers.
After paying a tribute to Hon. W.
J. Bryan, Dr. York said he bad a mule
in Wilkes county that had gone
through all the campaigns for the last
quarter of a century. The doctor said
bis mule, who bad a national reputa
tion, was known far and wide as "Gin
eral" Jackson and was a free silver
mule. Sometimes in the night you
can hear tbe "Gineral" as he paws the
earth, bray out, "Free silver, free sil
ver, free silver." I hope the prayers
of every one here will be that "Giner
al" Jackson will live through another
Dr. York spoke flippantly of the
McKinley wave of prosperity. "Up
in Wilkes county, tbe bub of tbe uni
verse," tbe doctor said, "we have been
awaiting tbis wave, expecting its ar
rival daily.but as yet it has not struck
the Biue Ridge."
Mr. Spaugb, of Frledburg.Weds Bliss
Kirby, of Kentucky.
Mr. E. J. Spaugh, of Friedburg, tbis
county, arrived home Friday with
his bride, nee Miss Mary E. Kirby,
of Bowling Green, Ky.
Tbe marriage, which was quite ro
mantic, was celebrated at Cleveland,
Tenn., on the 13th Inst.
The Sentinel is Informed that Mr.
Spaugh is 58 years old, and met bis
affianced for tbe first time the same
day of tbe nuptials. He is said to be
supremely happy, notwithstanding
some of the groom's relatives are not
very well pleased, -
The Sentinel Is told that Mr
Spaugh was never known to stay away
from home a single night prior to his
trip, this week, to Tennessee. .
N The Office Goes A-Begging. .
It Is announced that Attorney-General
Zeb. Vance Walzer is unable to
find a desirable person to accept tbe
position of clerk in his office. For
once an office has gone a begging. Tte
position only pays $600, and as long as
there are any of the other plums in
night, Mr. Walzer's clerkbhip will
want for a man.
Delivered Before the Legislature
January 12th.
In his inaugural address, Governor
Russell said :
"There are many matters of do
mestic concern which demand your
thoughtful attention, such as the in
crease of the tax rate fur the common
schools and improvements in their

His Speech, After Taking the Oath,
In the Senate.
Lieutenant-Governor C. A. Rey
nolds, after taking the oath of office
in the House on the 12th inst., re
paired to the Senate Chamber when
he jvas presented by Senator Smothers
as the new presiding officer. Mr.
Doughton gracefully turned over the
gavel to his successor. Mr. Reynolds
spoke as follows:
Senators: In assuming the duties
of presiding officer over your distin
guished body, I do so with the single
purpose in view, to know your wishes
and serve you to that end to the best
of tuy ability and I shall hope always
for j our kindly assistance in making
the duties of tbe office as light as
For my predecessor I will say that
if I can avoid criticism and retain
the esteem of this body and my fellow
citizens as he has always done, 1 shall
consider myself mure than fortunate.
I do not know that it would be be
coming in me to call your attention
to any special line of legislation, but
I may be permitted to hope that the
course of thts Legislature will be
such as to encourage immigration
and invite capital into cur State.
We think of the boundless wealth
hidden in the storehouse of our Wes
tern mountains, the wasting energy
of a thousand streams, 'jur unrivaled
woods, the splendid possibilities of
our Eastern gardens, our fisheries
wonderful, though undeveloped, our
magnificent climate and matchless
scenery, and what an opportunity is
Let us forget all party lines and
remember that we are sons of Nort h
Carolina. If we do this we can give
such a feel in of security to all kinds
of investments, such hope and en
couragement to labor, sucu an empet
us to new enterprises that will insure
the opening of mines, the develop
tnent of our water powers, the im
provement of our public reads, the
building of railroads aud turnpikes,
and in fact will secure every kind and
character of development that is pos
sible in our State. Blessed as we are
by heaven with such possibilities it is
your province and 1 feel it will be
your pleasure to make North Carolina
a most inviting field to capital aud
the Paradise of the workingman.
A part of this great work must be
the encouragement and improvement
in our free school system, until it
reaches that point when the humb
lest citizen can secure an education
that will fit bim fur any calling in
the State.
I will not detain you longer except
to assure you that if wisdom prevails
in your councils, you will see the be
ginning of such an era of prosperity
as our people have never dreamed of,
and for which your children's chil
dren will rise up and call you blessed,
and your constituents will greet you
on your return home with tbe plaudit
of "Well done thou good and faithful

Exposure to Disease - :
Does not necessarily mean the contraction
Of disease provided the system is in a vigor
ous condition, with the blood pure and all
the organs in healthy action. When in such
a condition contagion is readily resisted and
the disease germs can find no lodgment.
Hood's Sarsaparilla is the best medicine to
baild up the system because it makes pure,
rich blood, and pore blood is the basis of
good health. In cold weather it is espe
cially necessary to keep up the health tone
because the body is subject to greater expo
sure and more liable to disease. Hood's
Sarsaparilla is the safeguard of health.

They Differ in Their Reports for the
Past Week.
New Youk, Jan. 16.- Bradstreet's
today says: Except at a few Southern
cities, as reported last week, whole
sale merchants throughout the coun
try report no noticeable change in
trade relations, and few indications
of improvement In the near future.
Mercantile collections continue slow.
Some jobbers at Chicago, St. Louis,
Baltimore, and other large cities re
port increased demand for dry goods,
hats, shoeb, hardware, and groceries
for spring delivery, but that in other
lines business is very dull.
There have been 478 business fail
ures in the United States this week,
compared with 488 last week, 412 in
the second week of January, 1896, 378
in the like week of isy,, and 404 in
the corresponding period of 1894.
Messrs. R. G. Dun & Co. say in their
weely review of trade: The greatest
growth and prosperity the country
had ever seen -came suddenly in
1879, after several months of disap
pointment, because specie resumption
had not then brought tbe benefits ex
pected. It tai:e times for new con
fidence to reach through easier money
markets, larger orders, resuming
mills, expanding employment, and a
larger distribution, to the results
which make still greater and lastiug
gain nossible. Such Lrrarliial and
steady improvement has been in pro
gress ior more man two months.
The failures for the week have been
455 In the United States, against 395
last vear. and 71 in Canada, against.

on This Subject.
The Sanctificatiorjists have closed
their meeting at Fayetteville. Evange
list Fife preached in their tent
Wednesday night. The Observer says
bespoke from the platform, surround
ed by nearly a hundred sanctified per
sons, who went in ecstacies over bis
The Evangelist opened his remarks
by saying that he had been criticized
by people fur having anything to do
with the sanctiilcationlsts but that
they were as good and sincere as any
other religious body and even if they
were humbugs there were souls in that
tent to save and he was fcoing to aid
in their salvation.
"The Second Coming of Christ," was
the subject of the Evangelist's dis
course. During the course of his re
marks he said that the people need
not look for good times, that they
were not coming. He said that Mc
Kinley legislation can not give us
prosperity, neither would we have
prosperity if Hryan was to be the
next President, good times were gone
and gone forevtr, banks and business
houses would continue to fail, wars
multiply, and general destruction, un

and that lite Hible says that when

event by the newspapers and great
men everywhere."

Digestive Cordial for many years, and it is
medicine that lias helped to make the
Shakers the healthy, long-lived people that -they

mode of life, partly to the wonderful prop
