Passed Awav Monday Sketch of an Honored and Useful Lilfe. On the afternoon of Sunday, May 15th. while ijerforminsr his duties as teacher of an advanced class in the Salem Home Sunday school, he com plained of an illness which increased in intensity during the afternon and night of Sunday. The faithful and efficient physician in charge soon found that the disease had developed a complication of heart trouble and called in consultation with him the best medical talent of our community. All that human skill could' do to re lieve suffering and cure disease was tried, but Mr. Fogle continued to grow worse until the afternoon of May 22, when about 4 o'clock he quietly passed away, surrounded by his imme diate family and numerous friends. He is a man who will be sadly missed throughout the entire com munity; he was a devoted father and husband, a devout and consistent member of the church, an energetic, patriotic and exemplary citizen, a just and sympathetic employer; no death in reeent vears has affected so large a portion of our community, and for this reason we hereto attach a brief outline of his comparatively short but very useful life. j He was born in Salem on Aug. 30th, 1846, in the old Fogle homestead which was situated near the present location of the Norfolk & Western depot. His boyhood and early youth ' were spent in Salem. At the age of 17 he responded to the demands made upon the young men of our State and went to the war as a member of the 21st regiment band. He continued in service until the surrender at Appo mattox and then with other compan ions returned home, having walked a good portion of the way from Appo mattox to our town. The interest which he and others, during those trying times, took in church work was clearly demonstra ted by the fact that those who were returning with him, carrying their musical instruments, were so greatly fatigued that they left their instruments some miles below Ker nersville, feeling that they could scarcely be able to reach home with that additional burden. The party arrived here the Thursday preceding Easter Sunday, and found there were not enough instruments in town to continue the original custom of an nouncing the Easter morning to our citizens throughout the community. He and others decided that the un broken custom of the church should, not now be disarranged, and although weary and foot-sore they deefded to go below Kernersville and secure the instruments which they left behind them. For fear that the better horses of the community might be stolen from them by passing bands of soldiers, they took inferior stock. The horse which they had broke down, so that they were not able to return to Salem with the instruments until about 1 o'clock Sunday morning. Without sleep, he and his companions started on the regular rounds about two, and by his energy and devotion the cus tom which has existed for nearly a century and a quarter remains un broken. In 18(55, although but 19 years of age, at the request of Major Malone, of Alabama, he gathered together a large number o'f Major Malone's for mer slaves and undertook the perilous task of taking these former slaves and much valuable property through the country, privately from here to Ala bama. This trip was successfully ac complished and after remaining in Alabama for some years he returned, and carried to Major Malone a second delegation of his former slaves who were dissatisfied with their surround ings here and longed for the scenes of their master's old plantation. He re mained with Major Malone until 1870, and on his return took a position with Messrs. F. & H. Fries which he held for some time. His connection with the above firm was brief, but ripened into a true and undying friendship. Jfrevious to his return, his brother Mr. Chas. A. Fogle had formed a co partnership with Mr. J. G. Sides and had started a small contracting busi ness in the old shop which still stands on the former tan yard site. In 1871 Mr. C. H. Fogle bought out Mr. Sides' interest and soon thereafter the new firm of Fogle Bros, was established in the location where they still continue business. He was married Oct. 25th, 1872, to Miss Emma A. Reich; their union was blest with two children, both of whom survive their father. The community has always felt a great gride in the constant growth of the enterprise which the brothers established in '71 and noted with great interest the enlarge ments which have taken place in their plant from time to time. The con tinued success of the various enter prises has been very pleasing to their numerous friends and mrfny of the prominent buildings will still for many ages to come bear testimony to the faith and conscientious work which Fogle Bros, always performed. He, as well as the entire community, was greatly grieved by the death of Mr. Chas. A. Fogle, which occurred in October, 1892. After his brother's death he still retained the original firm name and, in addition to the duties which devolved upon him as proprie tor of so large a business, he found time, to interest himself in all other en terprises which tended to the upbuild ing and success of our communfty. He was prominently and intimately asso ciated in the management and building of the lioanoke & Southern Railroad, leading from this" point to Roanoke, Va. His efforts were not confined to this community, but the substantial buildings erected at Mayo Mills and those at the Yadkin River Power Plant will for all time bear testimony to his careful judgment and honest work. Although scarcely oz years of asre. he has accomplished more than many men nave done in very much longer periods. For four years he success fully administered the affairs of Sa lem, as its Mayor, and for nearly fif teen years has given almost continued, uninterrupted service to the affairs of the town as a Commissioner. At the time of his death he was a member of the Board of Trustees of the Moravian Church and also a mem ber of the Board of Commissioners of Salem. Since his brother's death to present time he has been Superintend ent of the Salem-Water Supply Co., and the Saturday previous to his ill ness spent quite a while superintending some improvements looking to the en largement of this plant. He was also Director of the following institutions: The Wachovia National Bank, the Wachovia Loan & Trust Co., the Win ston Development Co., of Winston: the South Side Manufacturing Co., the Fries Manufacturing & Power Co., of Salem, and the Mayo Mills, at Mayodan. The entire community will greatly feel his loss, but not more deeply than the many employees who , with their families have felt that they were de pendent upon him during all the troubled times through which we have recently passed. At a direct loss to himself he diU work and took con tracts in order that his men might make an honest living for themselves and their families, and it would seem that for many years this community will not be able to recover from the shock which they have sustained in the death of our esteemed friend and neighbor. - - The funeral services were con ducted from the Moravian Home Church in. Salem, Tuesday afternoon, at 3 o'clock. . Most of onr misfortunes are more supportable than the comments of oar friends npon them. Col ton. GENERAL FITZHUGH LEE LEFT FOR TAMPA TUESDAY!

In its report of the commencement exercises of Greensboro Graded Schools, on Saturday, the Record says: The exercises were - brief, but none the less interesting, the main feature being the address by Dr. Rondthaler, of Salem. He was hurried, having to leave on the 1 o'clock train, yet it was a most timely address in every sense. The Dr. has a most musical voice, knows how to size up an audience and he never fails to please. Then, too, he is always abreast of the times, but not a particle of sensationalism en ters into what he says or does. He hit it today when speaking words of encouragement to the young grad uates, referring to Admiral Dewey. At another point he paid an eloquent tribute to Ensign Bagley, but these references were used, not for applause. butrto illustrate the advice he was giv ing. Congressman Liinney Passes.

The venerable Moravian Home church was packed Sunday morning withlovely school girls and patrons and friends of the old Salem Female Academy and College, the occasion being the opening of the happy 95th annual commencement season. The thirty-eight young ladies com posing the graduating class, occupied seats on the rostrum, facing the pul pit. The class was equally divided, one half sitting on the south and the other half on the north side. Between them was a lovely bank of water lilies, which added greatly to the beauty and attractiveness of the restrum. The congregation- joined Bishop Rondthaler in reading the church litany, a part of which referred to war. l-iev. A. 1J. Ihaeler read the scrip ture lesson and after a beautiful selec tion by the choir Bishop Rondthaler presented Rev. Dr. H. A. Brown, who preached an earnest and inspiring sermon, filled with excellent advice not only to the class but to the entire : congregation. He announced his text from a part of the 28th verse of the 11th chapter of St. John "The Mas- ter is Come and Calleth for Thee." Some one has said that there are two great ideals in life, said Dr. Brown. The first thing is to find what we need and then to apply it. He referred to the work beinsr done i by . the various organizations com- posed of young people, saying that he believed that through them Cod wants to evangelize the world. He gave four reasons why God wants young people. First, because of their powers of endurance. This age re quires aggressive muscular Chris tianity. He quoted Dr. Stock as say ing that he believed the world needs more attractive religion. Aggressive Christianity will make it attractive, said Dr. Brown, who added that Christianity might be summed up in two words "Come and Go" Come to Christ and go out and work for Him. The need, of this age is men who will do right though the heavens fall rather be right than President. It pays to . have convictions and to stand by them. He admonished the class to take Christ with them at all times and to make preparations be fore temptation comes. The second reason why God wants young people is that they are strong in their enthusiasm. Young people are generally enthusiastic in what they do and this is why Christ wants them to serve Him The third reason is because they are strong in their power to adjust them selves to the task to be performed. There is enough in your environments tn make you all great, if you will take advantage of it, said Dr. Brown, ad ding that we must lie willing to be what God wants us. The philosophy in life is not how near we can get to temptation, but how far we can stay from it. The fourth reason is, woman can do things no one else can do. Woman is God's great masterpiece of creation. Woman carries the key that unlocks the most delicate position in life. Our daughters are the corner-stones in our homes. In the various departments of church work young womeiK can find work which will honor God. In con cluding his-beautiful and appropriate discourse, Dr. Brown asked the young ladies to heed the words of his text and commended them to the word of God generally. Dr. Brown then offered an earnest prayer for the institution, faculty, graduating class, etc., at the close of which Miss Settle, instructor in the vocal department sang a beautiful solo to the delight of the entire con gregation. The service was concluded with the benediction, pronounced by Bishop Rondthaler. Will Make the Trip on Ills Wheel. J. T. Skiles, who conducts a hotel in Florida during the winter and one at Linville, 20 miles from Blowing Rock, during the summer, spent Sat urday and Sunday here, the guest of H. T. Foueht. Ite was accompanied by his wife. They left Monday for Lin ville. Walter Foueht who will clerk in the hotel, also left Monday. He ex pects to make the trip on his wheel. A Smal Mr. A. H. Crausby, of 158 Kerr St.. Mem phis, Tenn., says that his wife paid no at tention to a small lump which appeared in her breast, but it soon developed into a cancer of the worst type, and no' with standing the treatment of the best physi cians, it continued to spread and grow rapidly, eating- two holes in her breast. The doctors soon pronounced her incurable. A celebrated New York specialist then treated her, but she continued to grow worse and when informed that both her aunt and grandmother had died from can cer, he gave the case up as hopeless. Some one then recommended S. S. S.,and though little hope remained, she begun it, and an improvement was noticed. The can cer commenced to heal, and when she had taken seven bottles it disappeared entirely, and although several years have elapsed not a sign of the disease has ever returned.

SCOTT & BOWNE, Chemists, New York. f mini "imi',i tm WW 1 Spot May be Ca "It was merelya mole at first, and for a long time was so insignificant that I gave it no thought whatever." These words of a recent correspondent contain an accurate description of the first symptoms of the most violent and destructive cancers as they appear in nine cases out of ten. A slight scab, a small sore, a lump in the breast a mere so, harmless as they appear for a time, have developed into cancers of the most dangerous and obstinate form. Cancer is becoming so prevalent that such symptoms as the above, which refuse to heal and disappear under ordinary treatment, may well be regarded with suspicion. Being a blood disease, it is folly to expect Cancer to be cured by a surgical opera tion. The knife never did and never will cure a blood disease, and every time it is re sorted to, a life is threatened with sacrifice. The only known cure for this dreadful disease is S. S. S. (Swift's Specific), as is shown by the indisputable testimony of the many whom it has cured. For this dreadful disease is a real blood remedy one purely vege 1 43t table, containing no potash, mercury, or other destructive mineral. 1. W S. S. S. is the only blood remedy which reaches obstinate, deep- seated blood diseases, and hence it is the only cure for Cancer. jfy. -g The disease can only be reached through the blood, and all local fl treatment, such as caustic plasters or a surgical operation, only VIH a(j(js to its tortures. Being often hereditary, Cancer, in some cases does not appear until middle lite, and it is ot greatest importance that its first symptoms be carefully watched and S. S. S. promptly taken. S. S. S. is purely vegetable, and is the only blood remedy guaranteed to contain no mineral or other drug; it is not a drug- but is made from the roots and herbs of the forests.

It grew rapidly, and shooting pains ran in every direction. I became alarmed and consulted a good doctor, who pronounced it cancer, and said that it must be cut out. This I would not consent to, having little faith in the indiscriminate use of the knife. Reading of the many cures made by S. S. S., I determined to give that medicine a trial, and after 1 had taken it a few days, the cancer became irritated and began to discharge. This after awhile ceased, leav ing a small scab, which finally dropped off, and only a healthy little scar remains to mark the place where the destroyer had held full sway. anuicsa. owm ci.iu, uuipany, .
