Building of ' the Railroad to
When the railroad line from Mocks
vllle to Mooresville is completed a
project will have been consummated
that was first begun nearly 20 years
ago, says the Statesville Lancftoark.
At that time it wa9 proposed to
build a narrow guage railroad from
Winston to Mooresville. Grading
was begun and a good deal of work
was done between Mocksville- and
Mooresville, some sections of the
grading being entirely completed.
Then it was proposed to make the
line a broad guage, an extension of
the Virginia Midland, and the late
John is. Barbour, of Virginia, at that
time President of the Virginia Mid
land, came to Mooresville to look into
the matter.
The question was agitatfd, Coddle
Creek township, in which Mooresville
is located, voted $10,000 of bonds to
the road, one or more townships in
Rowan voted a subscription, and an
election was held in Davie
By and by, in 1881, the Virginia
Midland road fell into the bands of
the Richmond and Danville, the pre
decessor of the Southern, and that
ended the project for the time being.
"All things come to him who
waits," but in this instance it has been
a long wait, and many of those who
expected to see the early completion
of the road when it was begun 20
years ago have since then passed into
the great beyond. '

It May Come When the Present Rainy
Weather Terminates.
There was hardly ever a time when
the people of the South were more
anxious to see a frost than right now,
when the yellow fever Is working its
deadly mission.
We have bad a few light rrosts in
this section, but they did no damake.
The average date on which the nrst
killing frost occurs in Autumn is
shown from the Weather Bureau's
records for the past 26 years to be
November 8. So that if it comes on
average time this year, its beneficial
effects wil be felt In a little over a
week. The earliest frost of any kind
in the past 26 years was October 9.
1889. The latest frost of any. kind in
the same period fell on the 23d of
November, 1871. There is a good
chance for a frost of some kind when
the present rainy spell breaks up.

Henry George was not old. but was
of an extremely sensitive nature and

was overworking himself. At times
he has been incoherent during the

Astrologer Thornton, of Greensboro,
Makes This Prediction.
The Sentinel was informed this
afternoon that Astrologer Thornton,
of Greensboro, predicts, from certain
signs of the stars, that the Spaniards
are to have some bad luck very soon.
He says the planet Saturn was this
morning in the sign Sagittarius, the
ruling sign of Spain, aud as Saturn is
what is known by astrologers as a
malignant influence, the Spaniards
may look for serious trouble.
Mr. Thornton adds that "in all pro
bability there will soon be a Carlist
insurrection, and probably the Span
ish monarchy will be overthrown. It
is also more than likely, as this sign
is exactly the opposite of Gemini, the
ruling sign of the United States, that

The Senator Leader Has Lost

News and Observer, Oct. 23.
Many men there be in the Populist

that they may do it; men who are
governed by their own conscience and
sense of right, rather than by Butler,
Skinner or any other individual in the
These men, though they have never
given their freedom of speech into
any man's keeping, are slow to find
fault, but once their mind is made up
that there is "something rotten in
Denmark," they speak out in open
meeting and care not if the whole
world hears them. These men are
getting mighty tired of negro rule and
Butler's negro trading policy. They
are kicking over the traces everywhere
and demanding that be be deposed as
leader of the party.
Ana the man whom they propose to
put in his place is Dr. Cyrus Thomp
son, Secretary of State. He is said
to be a man and the only man who
can bring all elements of the party to
gether. He is objectionable to neither
the Butlerites nor the Skinnerites.
Then, of course, he likes himself,
Otho Wilson likes him and Hal Ayer
likes him aud that is all the party.
One of the Stockholders of the N. C.
The statement is made that one of
the stockholders of the North Caro

for a receiver for the road, on the
grounds that the Governor is squander

They say Governor Russell is hiring a
large number of lawyers in the State

It is learned that Mr. Robt. T.
Joyce, one of Winston's former citi
zens, now of Mt. Airy, has secured aod
will loan to the library of Trinity Col
lege, one of the seven copies of the
hymns of John Wesley, written by
the latter in 1730. It is said to have
been handed down from Wesley to
John Wesley Potts. When Wesley or
ganized his tirst class in England, he
made the seven copies, all beautifully
written, as he was not allowed to do
any printing, lialph Potts brought
this one to Washington, this State.
After a fire at Tarboro, the bonk was
found by John Shackleford. Mr.
Shackleford consents that Joyce shall
loan it to Trinity College. Those who
have seen the book say that the writ

The Public Reception Friday
Afternoon and at Night Largely
Attended, Attesting Public In
terestThe Art Exhibit.
The Historical Society, which has
been organized in Salem and has
bouse taken up its abode in the
formerly known as the Boy's
School House, is a very impor
tant organization. For some time
a number of persons have been collect
ing the various articles of interest and
storing them in the building alluded
to. Many valuable articles connected
with the history of the last century
have disappeared, many others are
rapidly disappearing. To save these
articles the organization was found
ed. The building has been Dlaced in
first-class condition and some four or
five rooms used to store the articles.
The list comprises almost eve-v ar
ticle imaginable. Valuable papers.
old books, articles of iewelrv. house
hold utensils, furniture, and in fact a
host of other things have been gradu
ally gathered together. The work
has been very great but the efforts put
luriu nave resuitea in success.
Friday the building was thrown
open to the public and both afternoon
and evening a large number of visitors
thronged tbe rooms. A large number
of interesting sketches could easily be
written aescrioing one or another ar
ticle in the collection and we hope in
the future to do this.
The Society now numbers about fif
ty or more members and it will grow
and Increase in interest as the years
go by. Our community has much that
Is historic connected with it and each
year will make these facts and mater
ial specimens more and more valuable
and Interesting. The Society should
be supported In every possible way.
Too much credit cannot be given to
tbe young men and ladles who have
worked thus far in connection with
tbe organization and from the large
number of person in attendance yes
terday and last night we feel assured
that they have the support of the
communities in their good work.
A very interesting evening was also
held in the Rooms of the Men's
League, one dour north of the Histori
cal Rooms Here a large collection of
tine pictures was displayed. A small
fee of 10c. admittance was charged
and afterwards the pictures were sold.

He May Visit Winston lu January or
The Y. M. C. A. has been trying, for
more than a year, to get Gov. Bob
Taylor, of Tennessee, to visit Winston
and deliver one of his inimitable
lectures. Mr. E. E. Gray received a
letter last Friday from his managers
which says :
"It has been Impossible for Gov.
Taylor to answer the many hundreds
f letters that are written to him
from all over the country requesting
an engagement to deliver lectures. We
beg to say that we hope some time in
January or February to arrange a
short lecture tour in North Carolina
for Gov. Taylor. In that event we
will advise you and hope that we may
be able to make such arrangement to
have lecture in Winston."
The Penitentiary Farm Crops.
The estimate now is that tbe peni
tentiary corn crop will be 100,000
bushels. It requires about 60,000
bushels for the use of the convicts and
tbe stock. This will leave 40,000
bushels for sale, worth say, $16,000.
The estimate is that tbe cotton crop
is 2,700 bales. Last year Superinten
dent Leazer made, 2,600 bales and
500 were lost by the great freshet in
tbe Roanoke, which also destroyed
60,000 ousbels of corn.

After meals you should have simply a
feeling of comfort and satisfaction. You
should not feel any special indications that
digestion is going on. If you do, you have
indigestion or not-digestion. This may be
tbe beginning ol so many dangerous dis
eases, that it is best to take it in hand at
once and treat it with Shaker Digestive Cor
dial. For you know that indigestion makes
poison, which causes pain and sickness.
And that Shaker Digestive Cordial helps
digestion and cares indigestion. Shaker
Digestive Cordial does this by pro
viding tbe digestive materials in
which the sick stomach is wanting. It also
tones up and strengthens tbe digestive or.
gans and makes them perfectly healthy.
This is tbe rationale of its method of cure,
