A Winston Lady Tells What is Going on There -That New Bridge. A Winston lady, who is at Moore's Springs, writes Tiik Skntixkl as fol lows: Our quiet, life has been broken for the past few days with charming music, wielded by the carpenters' tools, floating sweetly upward toward the hotel, from the ripling stream which divides us from the life-giving water of nature's wells.

THE TOBACCO FAIR. Will be the Biggest Attraction In North Carolina This Year. This year's tobacco crop in the Piedmont section promises to be fine and the leaf exhibits at the Tobacco Fair the first week in November will no doubt be full and of the choicest selections. As the. Tobacco Journal states, the planters are required to pay no en trance fee, and, besides, are ottered liberal money premiums. Our manu facturers, who had such exceedingly handsome and unique displays of their goods before, are determined to outdo their former efforts. Manufacturers of tobacco from other towns and mak ers and dealers in tobacco machinery and supplies will likewise be well rep resented, and contest with the home people for the honors. Arrangements are being made for a full assortment of meritorious auxiliarv attractions, including a Midway, races, gorgeous street parades, theatrical performances and the like. Ample accomraodatious will lie provided for the thousands of visitors. This will be unquestionably the greatest fair of any kind in North Carolina in 181)8: more, it will surpass any that will be held anywhere else in the South. All persons interested in the tobacco industry throughout the United States are invited to attend and will be well repaid for the journey and the expense incurred. Bobbed the Grave.

As I have seen in your paper the names of several men suggested "for positions on the Democratic ticket, and living in a section of the county that has had but little representation on the ticket in years, I desire to offer for the consideration of the Conven tion the name of J. M. Guyer for Reg ister of Deeds. Mr. Guyer has been a life-long Democrat, is a high-toned gentleman and would fill the office with credit . to the party, and I don't think the Convention could do better than to nominate him.

Here is the latest proclamation is sued by the "Duke of Summerfield:" Castle of the Duke, Aug. 29, '98. Whereas, Mv war is over and my .people have been blessed with fine crops, and nave grown prosperous and happy, notwithstanding the devil ment in high places, and, Whereas, The Duke of Summerfield, by and through the strictly white men's organizations the Farmers' Mutual and the Carolina Benevolent Association have protected my sub jects against fire, wind, lightning, death, old age and total disability; therefore it is ordered, by the power vested in me by myself, that a politi cal party be organized on the same line, and that none but white men need apply. No Democrat or Popu list who "has been white-washed by Judas Iseariot Butler can be admitted without first taking calomel and an emetic. No Republicans who have slobbered over the mountain stomach chief shall be allowed within sixteen nautical miles of headquarters until they have repented in sackcloth and ashes. "Good government" shall be the cry, and the man who says gold or silver, shall be exiled to one of my new islands. Poli ticians and ordinary fools shall retire and allow us, the common people, to give ourselves good law. Property must be protected within my realm. I shall allow no more fool, class legis lation. At an early day I will, therefore, assemble my people together in the cities of Greensboro and Winston for the purpose of forming a party as above described, and also for the pur pose of insuring their property and their lives. My general orders will now regularly appear, and I forbid any duel between Adams and our Tom, or between the learned Clark and the kicking Kilgo until then. The neirro paper in Wilmington is outside my realm, as I do not govern, Africa, but the leaders of the insurgents in i.m nev's district shall be advanced in rank as many numbers as shall be de cided upon after McRinley consults with me. Given under my hand and seal this, the 29th dav of August. His Duke X of Summerfield. Mark. Witness: Buddie Joe and Walt. Steele. SALEM MISSIONARY SOCIETY. Letters Sent to the Members by a Committee.

"We learn that the communicant Moravians in Germany, England and America number, all told, 25,000, and there are 37.000 communicant mem bers in our numerous missions.

Interesting Account of His Trip to Cuba Now at Montauk Camp of 7th Infantry, ry, ) O MILES FROM SANTIAGO - . ATJGCST 18, 1898. Dear Editors of Sentinel and Readers: After leaving Winston I made a very uneventful trip via Tampa for Cuba. We were chased once by a TJ. S. Block ading gun-boat, that mistook us for a Spanish blockade runner, but when it got close enough to see it turned off and left us. We entered the nar row "neck of the bottle," as it has been termed since Cervera was bottled up here, and passed close to Morro Castle. I supposed from what I had seen in New York papers, that after Hobson was removed from Morro that our guns nearly demolished it; while the fact is, it is but slightly injured. Just past this fort, and"Socapa" (the earth works opposite ) was the Spanish ship "Reina Mercedes" sunk by them after Cervera went out, to block up the channel; a little further in, was the smoke-stack and one mast of Hobson's Merrimac sticking out of the water. I took 4x5 kodak pictures of all these and hope to show them to you all sometime. My first duty here was with the 20th Massachusetts Regiment, but as their sick list was not so large, it was left to the care of one surgeon and I was detached and ordered to the 7th In fantry TJ. S. Regulars. This has been a sadly unfortunate Regiment; it lost 42 killed on field and 138 wounded in the battle on July 1st. Since that nearly 300 have died from yellow fever, exposure, starvation and lack of medi cines. When I came here the sick list was nearly 300. Thesurgeonhimself was sick, with yellow fever and the steward carried our whole stock of medicine about in an old hat. As I made my rounds, sick men were laying on the ground or on rail beds madeof bamboo, whieh grows here very tall and often eight inches through. These rails kept men off the ground and though hard were smooth and dry. Grass on the ground under one begins to heat and would smell, in a few hours, and is in itself an additional menace to health, so it can't be used. This is of course the rainy season; for a while the rain will fall like a cloudburst. accompanied with thunder and light ning, and then for two or three hours the trooical sun will pour down its heat till the rising steam and stench from the foul mud is almost suffocating. Then just as all is fairly getting dry comes another rain to be followed as before by sun; and this is everv dav's weather program. It is no wonder our men are all sick. If yellow jack spares them, they must fight malaria of most pernicious form, perhaps later sink with typhoid d3'sentery. Imagine my horror at finding so many sick men suffering so terribly, and for over half of them-not a dose of medicine to be had. Requisitions sent to medical headquarters would have to go through a two or three day red tape program for signatures and endorsements and then not get 5 per cent of whatl'd askfor. Of late ten or twelve regiments have been sent North to Montauk Point. Long Island, and I can get now near er what I want in drugs, but sick food is not to be had, the supplies sent of malted milk, beef extracts, etc., were used up long ago, and sick are dying from actual starvation: thev can en dure, if they could eat, the rations of hardtack and bacon. Fresh meat has been supplied about twice a week, but I dread to see it issued. It is mostly Chicago beef; has been killed for 4 to 6 weeks and shipped in refrigerators not tainted exactly, but in its trip from the city out to camp a change in it begins, and the next day's sick list is sure to be larger, with distressing bowel trouble and irritable stomachs. I have worked the hardest I ever did in my life, and put up with hardships that I did not think I could bear. I offered my services because I thought 1 was needed, and I certainly was. Am sorry that doctors did not respond more readily to the call for medical help. Of course it is much pleasanter to stay at home, but had the medical profession realized how great was the need for help, they would have offered themselves far more freely; for as a class, they are not cowards: they are brave and self-sacribcing and yellow fever, pestilence and hardships would not have frightened them from their duty. This regiment was nine hours under hot fire on July 1st and walked over the laying down ilst atone time to form tiring line further ahead. New York papers praised the 71st so, as it was their nobby regiment of the city's elite but they really did but little service. The Rough Riders however, in which were so many rich New York ers, certainly aid nght bravely, and so did the 12th and 10th ( Lieutenant Shipp's regiment) fight like demons. I have a kodak picture of the field where Shipp fell; also 3 views outside and one inside of that block house that- cost us so many lives to take. Relics have nearly all been picked up, but in this block house I picked up a few empty cartridges that had spent their force on our advancing lines. Our Colonel was a brave old fellow: he led, and on horseback most of the time; over one little rise of ground he tried to encourage his men to advance with him, saying: "Come on, boysi come on: don't bang back, there's a whole brigade benind us. ' and an Irishman in front rank said: "I wish they were before us, Colonel!" It made a laugh even at such a moment, and the regiment rushed over the ridge after their leader in a perfect hailstorm of lead poured into them from trenches and block house. From my tent door I can plainly see the block house and field. It is a beautiful picture spread out before us, in the distance are the high mountains with notches or valleys between them. the only passes being in these valleys. The slopes are covered with a coarse grass, mixed with yucca and fan palms, while every few yards cocoa nut trees and royal palms with their white monument looking trunks, fill in a fore ground that can not be appre ciated unless seen. This is a regular paradise, so far as nature has had to do with it. Any faults about it are ( like the original paradise ) the works of man. Fruits of a hundred sort almost grow here, very many that are not very attractive, others good but perishable so that they never get to the United States. Beautiful plumaged birds are abundant, also parrots and paroquets wild, but very few song sters. I have not heard one yet with even passable notes. Wild guinea bens, (like tne American tame ones, only brown ) and quail are plenty. Oh I if I could only have my dog and gun for an evening nere 1 would be able to smile amid all my surround ings. I don't believe I have smiled for a fortnight. I saw a hand glass lately and 1 believe l look more wrinkled and older than ever. I scared myself I looked so cross. I have been interrupted so much In this letter that I fear the line of thought is a little broken, but you, my friends, will not note this I hope, and I'll write you again ere long. yours, . "1JOC.
