A trip that will always be remem bered by those who had the pleasure of taking it was tbe recent one to tbe Luray caverns and Natural Bridge of Virginia. From tbe moment tbe train steamed gaily out of Winston to tbe time of its return tbe spirit of thorough enjoy ment seemed to pervade the party aboard which was one of tbe most select that ever left tbe city. As is unusual with excursions, a most excellent time was made on tbis trip. No lay-overs or delays, but a fast and breizy run to Roanoke, where the passengers left the cars to refresh themselves in a little walk; then "all aboard" for a solid run up through the beautiful Shenandoah valley, through miles of golden grain, with the mountains rising 1n their grand eur on either side and the graceful flowing rivers sending back ripples of laughter to tbe merry party aboard. It was indeed grand. By five o'clock tbe party had reached Luray and by seven bad refreshed themselves, eaten supper at tbe hotels and had arrived at tbe cave entrance, a mile from tbe hotels. The entrance is covered by a neat building witb porches all around. Here one could "drink in" the mountain scenery in all its grandeur and beauty. The Winston party was conducted through the cave in six groups of about twenty each. Each group was numbered and was accompanied by two guides. Tbe groups entered at intervals of about fifteen minutes. A group being completed the guide led the way down a flight of stone steps and before one could realize tbe fact the sublimity and grandeur of the entrance ball surrounded him. It is useless to attempt to describe the cave. It must be seen in order to be appreciated. It was lighted up witb electricity and had paved walks with iron railings leadiDg through a maze of tbe most beautiful walks and avenues. All along tbe way were beautiful alcoves, rooms and recesses. One of the most remarkable things was tne large numoer or natural for mations that so closely resembled things in ordinary life, and others that were themselves almost perfect pirces of statuary. Among those most easily remem bered were jumbo, tbe camel, tbe mammoth tooth, tbe wet blanket, Helen's 6bawl, tbe fish market, the duck market, the hanging basket, tbe frozen fountain, tbe skeleton, tbe leaning tower of Pisa, tbe tower of Babel, the castle on the Rhine, Plu to's chasm, the white spectre, the double column, the ball room witb tbe graveyard by it, tbe Empress column, the Angel's wing, Christ blessing the children, tbe crystal spring, tbe coral spring, Uveruns Grotto, Dianna's bathroom, the Swiss cottage, tbe Cathedral ball and the organ and chimes. Tbe music made by tbe guide by striking tbe stalacite reeds of the or gan and chimes was strangely sweet and clear. Four couples in tbe history of tbe cave have been married on tbe ball room floor. It took over an hour and one half to make the tour, but one would be so enraptured with tbe scen ery tbat fatigue was hardly noticed. By ten o'clock the party was back at the hotels. At seven o'clock next morning Lu ray was left behind, and at ten o'clock Natural Bridge station was reached The Bridge was two and one-half miles distant. Tbe party at once took con veyances and safely reached the charming spot. Not a few bad tbe novel experience and pleasure (.-') of riding in and on top of an old time stage coach. The Natural Bridge is one of tbe most romantic spots imaginable, and was so much greater and grander than many expected. Here description fails again, for tbe artist cannot do the subject justice witb bis brush. Tbe magnificent span, 190 feet high, with the great walls, is indeed a grand and inspiring sight. On top of the bridge lookiog down below into tbe vast deptb under tbe bridge, witb tbe crystal stream fl iwlng among tbe rocks and tbe ferns, grasses and shrubbery waving in tbe sunshine; then glanc ing off in the distance to the forest- covered mountains, one would feel as he turned and looked into the eyes of bis best girl, tbat this was Indeed par adise. At four o'clock tbe train started for home. A stop was mde at the Crystal Spring in Roanoke long enough for everybody to drink from this noted fountain tbat supplies tbe water for tbe entire city. At balf-past ten tbe party reached home without an accident, mishap or delay. Every one voted the trip by far tbe best tbey bad ever taken. The Knights of Pythias are due tbe thanks of tne community for affording sucb a delightful and instructive means of recreation is the opinion of the writer of tbis brief sketcb, who bas not yet had the pleasure of being a Knight. Preparing for the Mass Meeting. The Executive Committee, appoint ed to arrange for the great County bunuay school Mass Meeting, met at the- Y.M.C.A. Monday and appointed a Committee to Investigate tbe cost of fitting up Brown's warehouse witb benches, just like those for the Sam Jones meeting. Tbe Mass Meeting will be held at tbe warehouse, on Thursday, Aug. 26th, the closing day of the State Sunday School Conven tion. Other committees are at work along other lines. Let all tbe people comoioe their efforts and make this tbe greatest day in tbe history of Winston and Piedmont N. C. Monday Might's Earthquake Shock. Many of our citizens are confident tbat tbey felt another earthquake shock Monday night. D H King says be was sitting up reading and tbat tbe shock occurred at 11:25 and lasted sev eral seconds. Ex-Sheriff Bover was so badly frightened that be got up, put on bis clothes and waited for the sec ond shock, wbich did not come. Tom Watson thought be felt tbe shake but be did not say anything about it until somebody spoke about it in his presence. He says all the folks at home ran out of tbe house. Dr. Wheeler in Washington. The Washington correspondent of the Charlotte Observer' says: "Dr. Wheeler, ex-postmaster at WinBton during tbe Harrison administration. was at the capitol today to consult witb Senator Pritchard and tbe other members of the North Carolina dele gation. He is willing to preside over the postoffice at Winston again." 9400 Reward. Governor Russell offers a reward of $400. wbich is the limit, for tbe arrest of the unknown person or persons who, on tbe night of June 23, mur dered Mrs. A. A. Springs at Lexlng ton. Tbe reward is payable upon coo yiction. Tbe offer of so large a re ward is unusual, but it is recognized that this is an extreme case. The Crack Military Company. Sunday's Chattanooga Times says: "The Forsyth Rlflemen.tbe crack mil itary organization of the North Caro lina State Guards, arrived in tbe city yesterday morning from Nashville and remained until last eight, when they left for Winston, N.

Crowds" Assemble About the Court Room Expected That Jury Will Fail to Agree and That New Trial Will be Ordered. By Telegraph to The Sentinel. New Yobk, June 29. An exciting point in tbe trial of tbe American To bacco Company officers was reached this morning, when crowds hung around the Court of General Sessions to bear tbe jnry's verdict. After a bearing extending over twenty days. Counsel for tbe prosecu tion and tbe defense on yesterday de livered their last addresses. Judge Fitzgerald charged the jury, and at 6:15 o'clock last night the jury was sent out to consider its verdict. At 2 o'clock tbis afternoon the jury was still out. It is expected tbat it will not agree on a verdict, lr so, without doubt, there will be a new trial. MESSAGE OF LOVE- Introductory Sermon of the New Pas tor of the M. P. Church. Rev. J. W. Frank, the new pastor of tbe Methodist Protestant church of this city, preacbed bis introductory sermon Sunday morning and greet ed bis congregation witb tbe impor tant theme of "Love," taking as his text, 1st John, 4:18: "There is no fear in love; but perfect love castetb out fear: because fear bath torment. He tbat fearetb is not made perfect in love." The way along wliich every Chris tian must travel is different from tbe way tbe world travels. We travel tbe narrow way; the world travels the broad way. The Christian is govern ed peculiarly. Love is tbe guiding principle in tbe narrow way. We should serve God, not from a slavish fear, but because we love Him. We must practice self-denial, but self-denial does not mean long faces and sad hearts. It is easier to bear tbe burden of tbe cross than it is to bear tbe bur dens of tbe world. The burden of sin grows beavier, tbe burden of the cross grows lighter. At tbe end of each way we must be taken into tbe custody of God. The roads seem widely divergent, but eventually they converge at the day of judgment. There will be a vast difference then. Those of the world will stand before tbe Great Judge witb fear and trembling, but not so tbe Christian. Tbe preacber commented upon four conditions of humanity. 1. Profli gates, who have neither fear nor love. 2. Those deeply awakened on account of sin, who have fear, but not love. 3 Babes in Christ, who have both fear and love, and for wbom there is hope. 4 Full grown men in Christ Jesus, who serve God from love, without fear. Tbis is the class to which we should aspire. Love for God should be manifested by love for our fellow creatures. A distinction was drawn between servile, slavish fear, and holy, rever ential fear. THE TROLLEY PARTY. Caught in the Storm An Elegant Supper Served. The trolley party.given Monday even ing by Miss Ida Miller, complimentary to her guest, Miss MalTabb, of Hamp ton, Va , proved a delightful social event. There were 79 boys and girls in tbe party and it required two cars to handle tbem. Tbey started from the West End for the South Side pavilion about 9 o'clock and returned after tbe storm. The pavilion was beautifully decora ted and illuminated with bright elec tric lights. Tbe young people parti cipated in an informal dance, the music being furnished by two mando lin and two guitar performers. An elegant supper was served. It was prepared by Mr. George Wink ler. The storm came up while the happy party was en route borne and tbe cars were stopped on the Salem creek bridge.where they remained for some thing like an hour. Tbe curtains of the summer car were lowered, but even then several of the young peo ple were caught by tbe blowing rain. Notwithstanding tbe storm, tbe young people were bappy and appre ciate the delightful outing tendered by Miss Miller. BACK FROM LYNCH EURO. The Manager Lost Money Capt. Johnson's Accident. .

The Amount Said to Be $25,000. It is announced that two suits were institued in Raleigh Monday against Stewart Bros , State Printers, of this city.

We are under bond only to get out our work and have it accepted by tbe State. Tbat bas been done. Whoever may be at tbe bottom of this matter I con sider it bad policy and worse politics. If tbe motives whicb prompted tbis suit are inspired by malice or for tbe purpose of intimidation in order to influence tbe result of tbe printing question, it can only recoil on tbose wbom they wlsb to benefit thereoy.

The traffic is so great that the Southern was forced to the necessity of building a double track, or completing this. The extension of tbe Midland from Mocksville was deemed ni"8t advis able.
