FROM CAMP GRIMES. Mr. Will Shepherd Writes an Inter esting Letter. The Sentinel received a letter last week from- Mr. Will Shepherd, a member of the Forsyth Riflemen. He writes that the boys regretted very much to see their Winston friends leave Raleigh on Friday evening. After their departure it was a com mon thing to see many of the boys in tears. The camp has been quite lively with friends and strangers since May 17th. Every visitor makes a compli mentary remark about the. Riflemen's 'K. J. ii. Avenue" sign, continuing Mr. Shepherd says: We don't know exactly when the government will order us to Tampa, Fla., but we are inclined to believe that we will get transportation orders this week. Three companies of the d regiment broke camp and went home Sunday, owing to their not being able to get the required number of men to comple the companies. Aiondav was a saa aay tnrougnout the camp, owing to the arrival of En sign Worth liagley's remains, which were buried with military honors that afternoon. Ail flags were Hying at half mast during the day. It was a grand and impressive sight to see all the troops march out of camp over to Raleigh. After the departure of the troops, I went over to the city to see the body which was lying in state in the rotunda of the Capitol. The love ly casket was all draped in National and State nags and great banks oi flowers were on all sides of it, in every conceivable shape and form. At the head of the casket was a lovely nag made of red, white, and blue flowers. Near the head was his dress uniform, in the center was his sword and belt,- while the hat and uniform that he wore when killed were lying at his feet. On the hat was plainly visible spots of blood. And in the Capitol and Square and streets and almost as far as eve could reach, was one great con course of people, all honoring the dead North Carolina hero. It was a grand, but solemn sight. And I believe that every man whose eyes gazea upon that silent form ana casket, there buried in his breast the fire of patriot ism to such an extent that when the opportunity presented itself, he will shed one gallon of Spanish Dioou ior every drop that fell from our noble comrade, and may every son of North Carolina honor the ship, whose deck carries the stain of her hero's blood, the first blood shed on our side in the American-Spanish war."

The May number of the Wachovia Moravian has some interesting "Chips from Historic Timber" by Miss Ade laide Fries. The following extracts are given from it: On the 14th of May, 1865, the 10th regiment of Ohio Volunteers began a longer stay in Winston-Salem. Col. Saunders established his headquarters in the house of Mr. Edward Hege ( now Dr. Hunter). They left again on July 13th, and "although upon the whole they had conducted themselves tolera bly well as a body still little regret was felt at their departure, inasmuch as it bad appearea very plainly that their presence was anything but neces sary or pleasant, and their moral in fluence was anything but beneficial." On the 29th of May of the same year W. W. Holden was appointed Pro visional Governor of North Carolina, to hold office until the "loyal people of that State should be able to restore it to its constitutional relations to the Federal government, " which restora tion was not accomplished until June 25th, 1868, when Congress passed an act receiving the State once more into the Union, the State Legislature hav ing ratified the Fourteenth Amend ment to the Constitution of the United States, whereby suffrage was extended to the former slaves. . - The year 1866 was made memorable to the inhabitants of Winstou and Sa lem, by the coming of the 100th anni versary of the founding of the latter town, the day being appropriately cel ebrated in the Moravian church by a large company of people. tanortly after this festival a strong movement was inaugurated to stop the sale of liquor in Salem, and an ap peal was made to the County Court to refuse to grant any further license, if by their votes the community declared that to be their will. To this the court agreed, and on the 17th of March "81 votes were cast in favor of the prohi- A bition of the sale of intoxicating drinks" within the corporate limits, and "only 15 persons could be pre vailed upon to vote the other way." Prohibition was, therefore, establish ed in Salem, and has been the rule ever since. Toward the close of .the year the community was startled by an out break of smallpox in the Academy. A piece of flannel cloth had been sent from Richmond to one of the pupils; a few days later she was taken sick, and before the disease was recognized it had been communicated to a number of others. In those days the facilities for a complete quarantine were not great, and quite a number of the girls were ill, as well as various people living in the town, but throughout the entire epidemic not a single death oc curred. FIFTEEN VOLUNTEERS. Two of lhem 'Wanted to Stop In Winston.) C. F. Caffey, who went to Wilkes May 16thin search of volunteers for Capt. James Holt's company, in the Second Regiment, passed down - the road next evening with fifteen men.' They rode in the second-class coach and red, white and blue bunting float ed from several windows. Mr. Caffey said he started with about thirty men. but half of them backed out before the train left North Wilkesboro. Two of them, who re signed their positions as clerks in stores at wilkesboro, wanted to stop here and it required much per suasion to get them to go on to- Ral eigh. Christian Endeavor Business Board. Rev. T. M. Johnson, pastor of Grace M. P. church, Greensboro, and Miss Ruth- Worth, of Guilford Col lege, arrived here Friday afternoon to attend a meeting of the Business Board of the State Christian En deavor Union. The other members of the Board are Rev. A. D. Thaeler, R. A. Spaugh and IL A. Pfohl. They meet several times a year to formur late plans for aggressive and success ful Christian work. '. Believes In a Straight Fight. A Forsyth Populist, who has been one of the leaders in the party since it was organized, was in the city last week and made the remark that while he believed in Populist principles he had washed his hands and proposed to" vote hereafter iust as he pleased. He has realized that the State bosses are willing to fuse with anything for "pie." This Populist believes in a straight fight. Looks Like No Fusion.

Dr. Matthez visited Winston in Oc tober, 1896, remaining four months. He brought with him letters of intro duction, credentials and endorsements from persons of the highest character and standing relative to his pro fessional attainments as an oculo opticist in the scientific adjustment of glasses to the eyes. His practical work at that time of four months fully verified all that had been said of him. Dr. Matthez had adopted the plan of visiting the different largest cities, introducing himself to the members of the medical faculty and clergy and demonstrating practically, by opening his office-and receiving patients, what he was able to do towards establish ing a name and reputation in the in terior " which would augment his partronage on permanently locating in New York. After leaving Winston he spent several weeks at Raleigh, and Dan ville, Va., going from there to New York, he where opened an office at 156 Fifth Avenue. It is the intention of Dr. Matthez to establish in the fall a regular Infirmary and Optical Insti tute. His first trip from the city, made several week ago, towards reviewing acquaintance in establishing the fact of his New York office, had led him to visit Winston for the same purpose. He will remain here for a very short time, and solicits his old cases to re turn for re-examination all of which is, done without cost. It is needless to say there will - be many who will be only too glad to take advantage of Dr. Matthez 's presence in Winston by consulting him about their eyes and glasses. His office will, be room 3, parlor floor, Hotel Phoenix. GRAND HONOR ROLLS. Session Distinction of Pupils of the Two Graded Schools.

Has Solicitor Mott Promised Wilkes to Two Candidates? Sam Marshall, of Surry, who was here May 17, went to Walnut Cove next day. Sam wants to go Con gress and he is out interviewing the politicians on the situation. He was elector two years ago for Congress man Linney and it is given out by one of Sam's friends that the "Bull of the Brushies" promised to stand aside this time in favor of Marshall. Lin ney has forgotten that promise now and announces that he wants the nomination again. While here Sam called on Chairman John Revnolds, who is said to be a Linney man. It is whispered that John told Sam that Brother Charley" would not be a candidate for Congress this time, un less it was seen that Linney could not get the nomination. A ourry man remarked to us that Marshall did not have the "ghost of a chance" for the nomination and he ought to know it. W. A. Bailey, of Davie county, who was in the city last week, is another candidate for Congress in this dis trict. It is told that he and Solicitor Mott have made a deal Bailey to get the Davie delegation in line favoring the renomination of the present Solici tor, while Mott has promised Wilkes' vote for Bailey for Congress. It is reported that Mott has been making other deals. They say that he promised. Wilkes to bam Marshall, with the understanding that Sam would bring the Surry delegates to the judicial convention in favor of the solicitor. The Wilkesboro Chronicle says It seems that Mr. Mott is to have considerable opposition for the nomi nation for Solicitor. Dee Davis and J. E. Alexander, both of Winston, each want the place. Davis says he is sure to get the nomination. It is very probable, . however, that the present Solicitor will be renomi nated."
