"I was troubled with chronic diarrhoea for eight years and tried everything I wag told was good for it, but no medicine did me any good. I kept up all the time but was so weak I could not do anything. If I walked a few hundred yaroa I would be out of breath. My feet and ankles swelled very badly and I had about given up all hope of ever being well. I read about Hood's Sarsaparilla, and, knowing my blood was out of order, decided to give it a fair trial. I have now taken nine or ten bottles of it and several bottles of Flood's Pills, and I am perfectly well." Mrs. S. A. Ward, Battleboro, N.

An Important Correetlon. E.litors Sentinel. Having lieen confined to my home by sickness my attention was recently called to a statement made in the Union llepublican of July 28th, in which that paper charges that the convention of July'.ith, over which I presided, was held in the oflice of a Democratic lawyer and that only eight jieople were present, boin ot these statements are entirely false. The convention was attended by dele gates from nearly every township in the county, and was held in the oflice of Mr. 1'. T. Lehman-, a llepublican Justice of the l'eace. It was central and public, and was 0en to specta tors as well as delegates. The Jte- publican was asked to make this cor rection in its last issue but for some cause failed to do so. , August 17, 18i8. Respectfully, J. G. Blackburn. More Rock for the Fort. It is learned on good authority that the hauling of rock over the C. F. & Y. V. llailroad, for the fort near Wil mington, which . has been suspended for the last few weeks, will be resumed shortly. After completing the em placements for the twelve-inch rides, the government will build a number of mortar batteries for which large quan tities of rock Will be needed. Ihe Mt. Airy Granite -Company will furnish the roek as usual. It will be trans ported down the river from Wilming ton by contract, it is thought now, in stead of by the government boats and scows. Will Go to the U. S. Supreme Court. D. Schenck. Jr.. counsel for the commissioners of tstanly county ins the bond suit, says it will now go the Court of Appeals in Richmond and no doubt will reach the Supreme court of the United States before it is through. Kerr Craig, of Salisbury, is appoint ed receiver by Judge Simonton to re ceive the taxes which will be collected and hold them subject to any further action. Improvements to Salem' Water Mill Mr. D. L. Shore, the enterprising proprietor of the Salem Water ; Mills, is arranging to make some improve ments to his plant which will double the present pressure. He will take out the old pen stock and put in a four foot steel trunk and add three new turbine wheels. The proposed im provements will cost $1,000. J. L Nissen has the contract.

Supt: O'Brien, of this division of the Southern railway, has in his poss ession a few specimens of what is known as "Fairy Stones," said to be found only in Patrick county, Va. They are curiosities, every one of them being in the shape of a cross, but different sizes and shapes. Some of them are imjjerfect as regards design, but the cross is there, plain and un mistakeable, on every one. ' The only resemblance, one to another, is in the color, a dark red. Mr. O'Brien first ran across them in Danville, where a man was selling them. They are small and make nice watch charms. There is a legend connected with them, however, which is interesting, but of course is a big tale, though could one hear the vender repeat the story as it has been handed down from generation to generation, he would be amused if not impressed. The story is that when Christ was crucified the best means of disseminating the news was by the fairies all over the country and the story that Christ had died to redeem the world was first learned through the fairies. The legend goes on to say that when the news reached the fairies over in Patrick it of course created a profound impression, as it did eveiy where, but that country went it one better, for immediately after it was known some of the old ferrymen found along the shores of the river and in fact in divers places, stones in the shape of a cross. The first 'find' con tained a half dozen or more and soon the whole populace was engaged in the search, and the stones were found in abundance and are yet to lie found there, but the demand is about over, though an old fellow yet visits Dan- ille and other points and finds an occasional sale. One's first impression is that the stones are manufactured to order, but f they are the process has riot been iscovered by an outsider, in- fact it is hard to see how such a thing could be done, for it is said no two have ever been found alike in shape or size. A HOSPITAL TRAIN. It Carries ISO Sick Soldiers to Hos pital Near Washington. A hospital train passed through Greensboro at noon Thursday. It was from the South and was enroute to Washington. There were aliout 180 ick soldiers on the train. The seats in the five coaches were taken out and beds put down for the sick. Each car was provided with two trained nurses. The soldiers will be placed in the gov ernment hospital near Washington. On this train was U. a. Myers, of Wilkes county, who volunteered seve- al weeks ago and joined the sccodq North Carolina Regiment. He has been at Fort McPherson, S. C. He was able to go home and secured a furlough for thirty days. Myers came up on Capt. Stagg's train that after noon. He could not reach home until Friday, as no freight went up in the afternoon. He had his gun and other equipments with him and had the appearance oi a soiaier m every par ticular. Statement from Secretary Nichols. The Board of Agriculture is being criticized for not making an appropri ation to the State Fair, so as to in crease the premium list. Some excuse the action by saying mat "juagin from the past Messrs. J. S. Carr and Vanderbilt and a few others would have cotton the money." Secretary Nichols of the tstate t air answers this assertion by saying that only twice has Vanderbilt exhibited at ?he fair; that in 18iH he lost the prem ium to a r orsytn iarmer ana mas in 1897 he did not received premiums enough to pay , his freight bills to and from naleisrh. That as ior Air. vjarr. while the premiums have been awarded him. he has never drawn a cent's worth of premiums f ronrthe Fair As sociation, and they still stand to nis credit on the books.

JARVIS TAL.KS. He Urges Personal Work by Demo crats Populists Returning. Hon. T. J. Jarvis, ex-Governor and j ex-United States Senator, arrived in Winston last Friday on the train from Greensboro. He is doing some ; telling work for the Democrats. j He speaks encouragingly of the poli- ' tical outlook. The Democrats are gaii.- i ing new friends every day, he says. He has been through most of the east, as far as Rockingham county on the Virginia line, mchmond county on the South Carolina line and as far as Charlotte through the centre of the State, and says with absolute certain ty that in all the sections where he has been Populists who voted against us two and four years ago nave re turned to the Democratic party and will vote with us this year. I In many sections numbers of Popu- . lists have gone into the Democratic primaries and conventions and others j .1 ..,.1 ..... .,1 V, .i , Kaw will vntA U'it.t, ' have declared that they will vote with the Democrats. . Gov. Jarvis says that in his travels he finds the Republican party disorga- J mzed and in poor condition to mase : au active campaign. He adds: I 1 believe if the uemocratic people i in the State will be conservative but earnest and active, making good nominations, as thev have done, we can win back many of the Populists by personal intercourse and earnest wort, and secure a legislature mat win give us good laws and be an honor to the State. I have never seen a campaign in which the individual efforts of the Democratic people will tell as much as in this. I would therefore earnest ly urge every man who loves his State to become an earnest worker in the Democratic ranks." Gov. Jarvis came here to look after some private business. Hooked by a Cow. The wife of Mr. John Sutherland, living about eight miles northeast of Winston, was nooKea Dy a cow w euues day, Aug. 17. She was attended by Drs. tJynum and uaiton. w une nw injuries are serious, the attending phy sicians think she will recover.- It ap pears that Mrs. Sutherland led the cow out in the lot to graze and while in the act of driving a "stoD" in tne ground, with which to hold the cow, t.h animal became ansrry and rushed upon her, knocking her down ard cut ting gashes several, inches witn tne cow's horns." - - . . , Alexander Appointed Referee. ' Forsyth, Stokes, Yadkin, Surry, Alleghany ,Ashe,Wilkes and Watauga counties constitute one of the" bank ruptcy districts ' and J. Alexander, law partner of District Attorney Hol ton, has been appointed referee. , It is stated that he was endorsed by the entire bar of Winston. - The law part ners have been well . provided for by the Republicans.: ... v: y INSURGENTS ! and not otlice, bearing a true and faith ful allegiance to our glorious govern ment and her institutions and believ ing that the great Republican party will be in the future as it has in the past a great factor in upholding and perpetuating those institutions, we therefore feel it our duty to see that it is purged of the errors and misman agement of the political tricksters, office-hunters and bosses who have ar rogated to themselves its control; therefore be it Resolved, 1st, That we oppose" and condemn the system of gag rule that under the management of these self constituted bosses has obtained in this county by which the will of the people has iieen thwarted, the party disrupted and the city government of Winston turned over to the Democrats, not withstanding a Republican majority of from three to five hundred. 2nd, That we detest and deplore the disgraceful and dishonorable conduct of these self-appointed leaders in their mad contest for place and position and we hereby pledge ourselves to rescue the party from these adventurers and renegades, gathered from the Democratic and Populist parties, and from the four corners of the earth to prey upon the party, a motley crowd of aliens, traitors and foreisrners, ever ready to sell to the highest bidder and to prostitute the party and its princi ples to the accomplishment of their own selfish ends. ;5rd, That we pledge ourselves to rid the party of these traitors and to act in every honorable way in co-operation with other good Republicans in restoring the old time reputation and wise management of the party. To this end we are opposed to the re-elec-tidn of R. Z. Linney to Congress from the 8th district of North Carolina and that we will use every honorable effort to accomplish his defeat, because he has proved himself an unworthy and unprofitable servant to his constituents, as a member of Congress having re ceived more than $20,000 of the peoples' money and accomplished absolutely nothing for their benefit. 4th. That we are opposed to the pay ment of any portion of the debt incur red for the building of the court-house, contracted in opposition to the ex pressed wishes of the people and that we condemn the misappropriation of a large amount of the school fund to pay the interest on said debt. ;"th. That we earnestly ask that the salaries of all oliicers be reduced in proportion to the services rendered and that we ask for such legislation as will place the laboring classes of our people upon an equality with other favored professions and vocations. HITTKN BY A MAD-DOG. Kx-Congressmaii Cowles ani Ijtttle Daughter Gone to New York. Col. W. II. II. Cowles, ex -Congressman from this district, passed through Winston last week Wednesday even ing. He was accompanied by his little daughter, Miss Essie. The two were enroute for NewYork to receive treat ment f jr mad dog bites. A reporter talked with Col. Cowles at the train. The back of his right hand is badly lacerated. His daugh ter was bitten or scratched on the face, which has several ugly scars on it. Col. Cowles lives near Wilkesboro. He and his family were sitting on the porch, after supper, Monday, Aug. 15j when the dog ran up and juiujied at Mrs. Cowles. To prevent his wife from being bitten, the Colonel grab bed the animal, when it turned upon him, biting his hand. The dog then jumped upon the daughter, Miss Es sie, and bit or scratched her faee. Dr. White, of Wilkesboro, was summoned at once. He advised Col. Cowles to go to a hospital with his i daughter at once. The Colonel stated to the reporter that he felt confident the dog was rabid. After leaving Col. Cowles' house, the animal went to the home of a man ! named Johnson and bit his dogs and geese, and then went in the house and tried to bite the family. It then went to the home of a man named Joe Davis and tried to bite him, but Joe succeeded in killing it. The dog be longed to a negro named Tom Nichols. TKACIIERS' CERTIFICATES.

He said the cer tificates will tie sent out next week to the white teachers who passed exami nation last week. Only about five failed to pass. Only five colored teachers were examined. They all passed. Their certificates will go out in about two weeks.

The next examination will begin on the first Thursday in September and the Supervisor says it will be much hard er than the first one. He has not been authorized by the County Board of Education to hold any private exami nations. His advice to the teachers to be ex amined is this: "Be sure you know the Common School branch.'

The dispute is thus settled to , Italy's satisfaction.- j- DID NOT NOMINATE. BUT ADJOURNED UNTIL TEMBER 37TH.

RIgglns' Experience While Re turning from Blowing Roek. It appears that Capt. II. L. Riggins, while returning to Blowing Rock last week with Mrs. Riggins and her sister, Miss Lucretia Gorrell, had had quite an unpleasant experience near Wilkesboro. Just this side of Cub Creek ford his surry and horses mired up and were stuck in the mud for some time. The Chronicle says that the animals went n up to their necks and had to be taken lose. Mr. Riggins and Miss Gorrell had to get out and walk to the bank in mud knee deep, it required considerable help and three hours time to get the horses and surry out. The Chronicle adds that Capt. Rig gins will bring suit asrainst Wilkes county for damages, and somebody is going to have trouble. It is time the county and overseers and supervisors would do their duty about road mat ters.

Land, who moved from Wilkes county to Oregon in May, 1891, passed through Winston a few days ago on his return home to stay. Col.

Land is a great gatherer of curios and among the things brought home with hi 111 is a pair of elk horns, each over live feet long, and were taken from au elk which he killed 20 years ago when he was out there.

About five years ago there was a cut in wages of train men and the men take the view that business has increased and that wage's should therefore be restored, it is said that the officials have indicated their willingness to grant an increase of probably from two to five per cent., but the employees want a larger in crease. Committees nave had the matter under discussion in Washing ton for two weeks, so it was learned Thursday. Death of Miss Lillian Martin. Miss Lillian Martin, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. G. W.
