Iy-Sold by Druggists, 73c WINSTON ALDERMEN. POLICEMEN AND OTHER OFFI CERS RE-ELECTED. The Board Decides Not to Pay the Old Democratic Force-The Grave Yard Case Motion to Ex tend Corporate Line. The Winstou Aldermen met in reg ular session Monday night. Mayor Crutehfleld in the cbair. Aldermen Cligifs and Vance were the only m ru bers who failed to answer to the roll call. Tbe Street Oommittee reported some work done on a washout on First street, near Ellis' factory. The force was at work the remainder of the time, when the weather was favorable, on Fourth street. Chairmau Gaits said the committee hoped to complete tbe street and have a report on same at next meeting of tbe Board. Chairman White, of tbe Police Com mittee, tiled an application from tbe policeman and recommended that Sec retary Wilson cast tne vote or the Board for tne re-election of the pres ent force. Tbe repj.-t, addressed to the Board, reads as follows : "The undersigned respectfully ak your honorable body to reelect to the, same positions they now hold on the police force of jour city. We feel that we are more comp-tentto fl; said position than when Hist -lect.ed. If elected will faithfully discharge said duty according to law to the best of our ability. Signed, M E Teauiie, chief; I. E White, J. F. Frazer, J. W. Burge, D G Allen, J Iv Hen ning, B L. Poindexter and G W. May. The recommendatiou of the committee was accepted fy the re election of the present force. Tbe time for electing the policemen is ou J reason tbey were chosen last Dili lit, it is said, was to prevent tbe C'.miuiitee and Board from being troubltd with applications from parties wh j might wih positions on the force. The Police Committee reported that City Attorney Ilolton stated that the Board bad the right to rtduce tbe salaries of policemen. The commit tee acting on the Ldvice of the City Attorney, reported against the Board paying the extra salaries claimed by the old Democratic police force. The report evidently means a suit against the town. The committee appointed at the last meeting to investigate tbe white and colored grave-yards, recommended that b"tb be allowed to use what ground they now have but tbat neither should purchase more land. The report recommended further that a committee be appointed to have the charter changed so tbat land can be purchased outside of the city, for a cemetery for both, whites and col ored Alderman Gales suggested that the charter oe changed for extending the corporate line in West W inston to tbe creek: also to draw in tbe Nortn Win ston line, leaviag out that section known as "Mosstown." Mayor Crutch Held appointed Aldermen Pollard, Wilson and Gales as a committee to investigate the grave-yard report and suggestion regarding the extension of tbe corporate limit. The committee is to make a report at tbe next meet ing of tbe Board A. C. Snipes, street boss, Martin Peoples' uuard, and Alexander Rights, sauitary officer, were re-elected. Their salaries remain as before. Charley Hunt, colored, made appli cation for the contract to look after the sanitary wagons. lie offered to do the work for $70 per month Alder man Pollard asked if Hunt was now in the employ of the town. Alder man Tavis replied that be was and is receiving $1 per day for feeding the town stock. It was also brought out that Hunt does not do the work him self but sub-lets it. Mr. Tavis did not know what tbe "eub" received. Some say be gets 50 cents a day. Hunt's application was voted down Alderman Carter, colored, thought t he Board ought to have tried Hunt for one month at least to see whether or not his proposition would save the town money. Tbe Board granted a franchise for running wires in the city for the transmission of Yadkin river power into Winston by electric current Alderman Hopper was opposed to granting tbe franchise until he learned tbe Board bad a right to grant tbe same-privileges to any other corpora tion. Alderman Mills was also op posed, at first, to any ten year con tracts but after hearing tbe matter fully explained he seconded tbe mo tion to grant tbe franchise. Tbe vote was unanimous in favor of the appli cation. Tbe Board adjourned without a word being said about tbe lease of the North Carolina road to the Southern A Peculiar Stone. In Patrick county, Va., there is found a peculiar stone much sought after by superstitious people, who be lieve that tbe possessor of one of these queer stones is perpetually endowed with good luck. The stot-es vary in size, and many of them are in shape of a cross. This is perhaps tbe cause of a legend tbat is related about them It is told tbat fairies were sent all over tbe world to carry tbe news of the birth of Christ. After the glad tidings bad been spread tbe elfs fashioned the stones into crosses, as mementoes of their services. An enterprising jeweler has taken ad vantake of the superstition and tbe legend, and is doing a thriving busi ness in the fairy stones, as tbey are called. -.There is No thing bo Good- These is nothing just so good as Dr.Kink'a New Discovery for Consumption, Coughs and colds, so demand it and do not permit tbe dealer to sell you some substitute.

Tbe Church and Home, published at Elkin, by Presiding Elder Blair, of the Mt. Airy district, contains this Item: - "Rev. T. H.

No one moves mure promptly or generates more en- thustasm than he. tils people love him, because his ministry does them I good." I THE BROAD STREET MEETING. A Synopsis of Rev. Paul Price's First . Sermons. The series of evangel M i meeting s to be bold at Broad Street Baptist Church b.'nan iSuoday morning, at 11 o'clock, with an able sermon by Rev. Paul Price, who is so well and pleasantly remembered as assisting Evangelist Fife in a meeting here, in November, 1895. Pastor N. S. Jones presented the Rev. Mr. Price by saying tbat he did not think Bro Price needed an intro duction to the people of Winston, and said that he bad come a long distance to bold tbe meeting and asked tbe Christian people to pray for the Lord's blessing on it Mr. Price chose for his text 2d Kings 7; h chapter. He said he was very giad to be able to speak to this people again, for if he has any friends in the world they are In Winston Salem He also spoke encouragingly of clearing the debt of the church He knew of the difficulties under which the congregation labored. . The chapter read told of bard times in Samaria, and of how within one day the Lord promised that flour should become plentiful and so cheap that all might have it in abundance. It is tbe same here today, said Mr. Price, but the Lord is able to bring about great changes "in a day" if the people will only turn to Him in faitb aud trust. The trouble with tbe peo ple is that tbey aredrifting from God. It is easy to H at with the tide but hard to row in the opposite direction. What, we need is men aud women that will battle against the great currents of evil that, are in the world today. Our faitb is too weak and bence our works are not strong. If we have strong fait h we will do strong work It is our own fault that we do not grow in (Trace. We miss great bless ings hecauf we do not take them God's way. We mu-tt make a total self-surrender if we would receive the fulDess of saivatlon. We are willing to do what God wants us to do so lone as it i what we want to do. We bave too muchdignity in these matters. We should desire and be willing to be used of Him. THE NIGHT SERVICE. At night Mr. Price preached an other powerful and very practical ser man to a crowded house from 2nd Samuel, 17th chapter tbe story of David slaying Goliatb. This world represents two great armies of God on one side and Satan on the other going to battle with each other. There is a great work for each other. There is a great work for each of us to do. We were, doubtless, all brought into the fold through the instru mentality of some friend and God ex pects us to bring some one else. He uses natural means to bring His will to pass and His Spirit is always be hind us in duty and He will use what ever we have if if. is only consecrated to His service. So many of us begin to make excuses, saving that Satan is too strong for us to fight and all tbat sort of thing but it is none tbe less our duty to fight him. Another great failing we have is measuring our duty by what some ioconsistant church member does. If tbat fellow gives so much to the pastor's salary, or to for eign missions, yon will; but if be don't, you won't. A great many men are worthy of copying after but as a rule we should not imitate. The great trouble with humanity is that we want to play with Satan see how far we 'can go without being hurt. My friends stay as far from him as possi ble We all have influence over some body if we would only use it for tbe right At tbe close of the sermon Mr. Price sang as a solo "Gathering in The Sheaves," recently composed by himself. The meetiog at Broad Street will last at least ten days, services being held from 3 to 4 o'clock each after noon and at 7:30 p m. Mr. Price will go from here to Tallahassee( Fla , to begin a meeting February 28th. A LIVELY RUNAWAY. The Team Belongs to Mr. A. E. Con rad, of Lewisville. There was a lively runaway at 10:30 Tuesday. A two-horse team belonging to Mr. A. E. Conrad, of Lewisville township, were staudiog in front of the market house when tbey became frightened and rushed off down Fourth street. The wagon struck an electric light pole near Mr. Jacob Tise's old home place wbich resulted in throwing tbe bed off on tbe side walk and uncoupling tbe wagon. One of the bind wheels was demolished. With tbe runoing-gear of the front part of the wagon, the team turned up North Chestnut street, crossing tbe bridge near Bailey Bros, factory. Tbey made good time until they struck the hill between Fftb and Sixth streets. Upon reaching tbe latter street tbey went west until tbey were stopped. There was no one in the wagon when the animals started. The driver was delivering some fresh meats and was in tbe market bouse at tbe time One dressed porker was in tbe wagon bed and was not thrown out when tbe bed was set off on tbe sidewalk. A prominent citizen remarked this morning that tbe Aldermen should pass a law against people leavingtheir teams standing alone on tbe streets. The Sentinel is of tbe opinion tbat such an ordinance was passed several years ago. It slould ba enforced. - Mr. Jones in a Dilemma. Representative H. F. Jones, of Al legbany county, is badly bothered these days, says the Raleigh cor res pondentof the Wilmington Star. .His constituents are writing him letters by tbe dozen, which furnish unpleas ant reading for the gentleman from Alleghany. Tbe people of Alleghany are disgusted at Mr. Jones' course in the Senatorial matter. Jones, it will be remembered, did n-t vote at all aid the Republicans openly said that he bad agretd not to vote at all and tbat if it became necessary be would vote for Pritchard When Jones' Democratic constituents organ to write these letters JoDes arose to a question of personal privilege,- and now he is trying to get the newspa pers to publisb bis remarks, so that be can send papers to his constitu ents. - Charlotte's Delegation.

The Deal Completed Saturday Even - Ins People's Moves to First Na tional KuIIdlng Statements of Officers and Directors. The People's and First National Banks, of this city, are now one. The former has purchased the latter, the trade being closed late Saturday afternoon: The Sentinel has known for some time that a deal was on foot but was requested to make no mention of it until the trade was consummated. The People's began moviniz Satur day night into tbe First National, building, wbich is one of tbe hand somest in tbe State, where it opened business Monday morning The officers and directors of tbe First National bave Issued a circular which explains itself. It reads as follows: "We desire to announce to our cus tomers and friends - that we have formed a business arrangement witb tbe People's National Bank of tbis city, which Institution will hereafter occupy tbis Banking House. We re turn our thanks for your patronage and earnestly request that you con tinue to do business here and to aid us in every way. Under tbe new ar rangement you will receive all the courtesy and accomodation which any conservative institution can give you. and we desire your interest and hearty co-operation. The liabilities of the First National Bank will be paid up in full on demand." The officers and directors of the People's bank also make a statt ment on the same circular, in which tbey solicit tbe patronage, support and in fluence of the patrons of the First National. The amount of money required to make tbe transfer is not known. The People's becomes owner cf the First National building, while the stock holders of tbe latter take tbe building formerly owned and occupied by the People's. The First National was organized in 1876 and for a number of years did a successful business in the building now occupiedby The Sentinel Col. J. A. Bitting was President and Col. J. W. Alspaugb Cashier of tbe insti tution up to about 1889, when several Charlotte capitalists purchased the stock of Col Bitting Mr. J C.Bux ton was then elected President, and with the exception of about two months, has been at the bead of tbe institution ever since. Tbe bank was moved to its new home on March 19tb, 1892. The People's hank began business tbe first day of June, 1890. under the Presidency f Mr. W. A. Blair. He held that office until about a year ago when he was succeeded ty Mr. J. W. Fries Mr. Blair is vice-President and Mr. T. A. Wilson Cashier. The old force will continue with the People's. It is quite probable that Mr. W. L Pittman, who has been with tbe First National for a num ber of years, will take a position with the People's. Mayor W. P. Crut ch field, who has been with tbe First National 11 years and three months today, loses his place, and so do Messrs. Charley Shel ton and Thomas Glenn. It is under stood that the Mayor will now devote bis time to his office and looking aft r his candidacy for the Winston post office. FORSYTH SUPERIOR COURT. Verdicts of the Jury in Three Cases One Defendant Guilty. Monday afternoon's session of the court was engaged in the case of State vs Jim Pitts and Floyd Agee, charged with being connected with the recent shooting scrape at Dicey Nichols' place, nortb of Winston. The Sen tinel published the particulars of the row. It will be remembered tbat Pitts was shot and for several days it was feared tbat his wound would prove fatal. In prosecuting the case, acting Solicitor Dula termed tbe fight "Battle of Bull Run." The jury's verdict found Pitts guilty ana Agee not guilty. Two cases were disposed of this morning as follows: State vs. Clint Stewart and Clar ence S pease, for whipping a boy named Henry Brings, of Tobaccoville. Tbe boy testified tbat tbe defendants whipped him for not praying and then for praying. Verdict of jury was not guilty. State vs. Cbas. and Doc. Hall, of Davie county, for disturbing religious worship in a church in Forsytb. Not guilty. Our Pretty Court House. Mr. H. E. C. Bryant, the Charlotte Observer's traveling man, has a com plimentary article in Sunday's paper on Forsyth's new court bouse. He closes bis letter witb tbe following : 'Charlotte may surpass Winston in many respects, but it is hard to be lieve tbat she will have a better court house. The writer is satisfied tbat the Charlotte court bouse grounds are not half so roomy and beautifully located as tbe ones here. After all, it looks rather bard to allow such a building to be used by lawyers, juries, clients, etc. It looks more suited to a dignified preacher than a lawyer. "Winston can certainly boast of tbe prettiest court house in tbe State, and if a count was taken she could show up well with any ether town on auburn haired girls and gray horses."

Another full house greeted Mr. Price at tbe Broad Street Baptist church Monday night. His subject was Jericho, from tbe 5th chapter of Joshua. Joshua and his people stood before the high walls ami. strong gates of heathen Jericho. Satan and hi em misaries were strongly entrenched. God's people were to storm tbe cita del and take tbe city for him. Tbe great procession was formed. The armed men of Israel came first; the musicians next; the ark of the coven ant of the Lord third and the ureal host of Israel last. The7 obeyed God to tbe letter. He did the rest and the city surrendered. Today within the gates of Winston Salem there is anotber city. A place surrounded by walls of adamant and hinged with gates of steel. Satan and his army are apparently safely ensconced behind these walls. The Lord commands us to storm this re doubtable fortress. But bow can we scale tbese seemingly indomitable heightsof sin? We bave tried to sur mount them indeed, bave encom passed tbem, yet without apparent success. Many of God's children have ere this heaved sigbs of disappoint ment and discouragement and bave quietly retreated, saying it Is no use to try longer. Others of us are dis mayed and sit idly or stand helplessly by while these walls grow stronger witb'age and higber with lewdness, in temperance and greed. Your town is possibly no worse than any other city of its size, but it Is poor philoso phy and very cold comfort when we try to get consolation out of tbe fact t hat we are not wore than our neigh bors cGod commands us to storm the fort. How shall we go about It? Let us place tbe armed men first in tbe pro cession. If God has a body of loyal men' and women with the Bible in their hearts and under their arms to move 'round these walls of sin and shame which Satan has erected in our midst, he will need .no stronger armed force with wbich to rout the enemy. Next in tbe-procession, give us the musicians. Oh, for consecrat ed singers! If our songs were sung from the hearts as carefully as tbey are from the lips, what wonderful powers for good would they be? Third in tbe procession give us the Ark of the Covenant emblem to us of the presence of the Holy Spirit. When we as Christian workers (armed men) and consecrated singeis (musicians) move forward as a solid phalanx, planting and watering (cultivating) as we march, the Holy Spirit will surely be just behind us to give the increase Fourth in tbis great pro cession, give us the "reward" or. the great host of God's army to march in the rear, each one in his or her place, looking always ahead to where tbey see the Ark of the Covenant leading them on as it did tbe children of Is rael as a pillar of cloud by day and of fire by night shall we do this? If so, depend upon it, tbe Lord will do the rest and these walls so strong now around our boys and girls and hus bands and friends will surely be razed to the ground. Mr. Price (rave notice that on Thursday night next he would con duct a special service for men and added that as this day is tbe eve of the convening of the Youna Men's Christian Association of tbe State in our city, it would come in most ap propriately. He urged all and espe cially tbe ladies to bring out men to that meeting. Everybody is invited to all services, daily at 3 p m. and 7:30 p. m. MAJOR M'KINIiEY TIRED OUT.
