Case of Poisoning
Hood's Sarssparilla Drives the Poi
son from the System, Quiets
the Nerve?, Relieves Dyspepsia
and Catarrh.
" While in the army I was poisoned in
wardly with poison oalc, and I did not get
well for 15 years. My blood became bo
affected that I was taken with a hacking
cough, and I was thought to be goinjj
into consumption. I took many different
medicines without avail, and finally re
solved to try Hood's Sarsaparilla. When
I had finished taking the first bottle the
pimples beeran to disappear Horn my
bo J v- and af tt-r I Lad taken three bottles
I was well. I have also suffered with ca
tarrh in the head and have been taking
Hood's ParsapErilla for this trouble, and
it helps me. In fact I take it for all ail
ments and believe it has no equal as a
blood purifier. It quiets the nerves and
gives refreshing sleep. It has relieved
me of dyspepsia and built me up." J. I.

and proter-ting- against the bombard
ment of Candia. Finally the 1'oite
announces its refusal to withdraw the
Turkish troops from Crete in spite of
the decision of the Admirals that sueh
a stop is absolutely necessary. The
circular has made a bad impression in
diplomatic circles.
Candia, Sept. 14. There are no
now developments in the situation
here, which is peaceful. The Mussul
men say they have decided to accept
the ultimatum of Admiral Noel calling
for disarmameat of the populace if the
Admiral is sure he has suflicient force
to overcome the Uashi Hahouks.
Hherwistj they beg him to wait until
further reinforcements arrive.
Candia, Sept. 14. The Uashi
ilahouks have consented to disarm,
provided their arms are delivered to
the Turkish authorities.

I'KK.-Xii, Sept. 14. Marquis Ito, re-
conUy I'remier. of Japan, has. arrived
at Tien Tsin. It is believed Ins pur
pose is to establish an offensive and
defensive alliance. He is charged to
examine into the possibility of the re
coverv bv China of what she lost and
becoming useful as an ally.
No doubt there is strong bias lately

In a Mudd e Over Tax Hooks.
It appears that the Commissioners
and Sheriff of Wilkes county are iu a
"muddle" over the tax books, which,
it is claimed, were irreurularl y turned
over to Sheriff Call. The delinquent
taxes had not been run up on the
books, as was ordered to be done sev
eral meetings ago. However, the
books were turned over to the Sheriff
and an order to that effect apjeared
on the minutes, though three of the
Commissioners say the order was put
on the minutes without their knowledge
or consent and they entered their pro
test on the minutes. There will proba
bly be trouble over the matter yet,
says the Chronicle.

Hotel Normandie was destroyed bv

room on third floor of the building and
the flames got up under the roof ano

The Golf Club held a business meet

A. D. K. Wallace, the chief clerk to
Secretary of State Cy Thompson, has
been discharged for drunkenness. Mr.
Wallace,- it will be remembered, was
in Winston several days during the
spring of 1897 .helping the Public
Printers distribute the laws and pub
lic documents. As an extenuation it
is claimed that Mr. Wallace is suffer
ing on account of his wife's recent
misfortune of having lost her mind in
so much that she has been confined to
the Central Hospital in Kaleigh.

Made a Speech After Adjourn
ment of the Convention.
The Republican County Convention
was called to meet at 12 m. Saturday
but it was 12:.r)0 when it convened. The
delay was caused by the bosses havinr
to caucus with a few of the "faithful
in the witness rooms.
"Brother John" Reynolds was the
"ring-master" and chairman Jessup
received his instructions before calling
the convention to order.
There was a bir crowd present but
many were there as spectators Demo
crats as well as Republicans. A few
Populists were also in attendance.
The bosses and delegates occupied
seats within the bar. Several colored
brethren were on hand. This is all
the recognition they get in Forsyth.
Chairman Jessup, not feeling equal
to the occasion, called upon Mr. J. T.
Benbow, of the law firm of Benbow &
Hall, to act as temporary chairman.
It might be stated that Mr. Benbow is
a native of Yadkin and that he spends
most of his time in that county. He
stated the object of the meeting to
nominate candidates for General As
sembly and county officers.
The Secretary called the roll of town
ships. He then stated that all were
represented and that there were no
The Chairman stated that this being
true he did not deem it necessary to
appoint a Committee on Credentials.

On motion of John Reynolds, Edgar
Lineback was endorsed for the nomi

He eulogized McKinley and his ad

ing the recent war with Spain. He
complimented Duke for giving $400,

tell his hearers that Mr. Duke is a
member of a trust and the money was
made out of the poor farmers. He
also referred to the gift f Peck, an
other Republican, to the Vance monu
ment fund, but again he omitted to
state that the giver was a member of
the great oil trust.
" i ou may throw me out," said l.in-

Death of a Good Man.

order named.

two concluding paragraphs are given
The best and last speaker was Capt.
R. B. Glenn, of Winston. It is need
less to say to those who have heard
"Bob" Glenn, or who know him by
reputation, that he made a rattling
speech.. It was characterized by every
phase of oratory. Eloquence, pathos,
argument, stinging sarcasm, wit and
humor made up a combination that
carried his audience tiy storm. Gray
haired men, beardless boys arid
charming girls all joined in the cren-
erous and, at times, tumultous ap
plause that shook the Courthouse
building "from turret to foundation
stone. "
Mr. Glenn said that there would be
no election this year for Governor,
but he wished to God we had a Gov
ernor to elect, so we could get rid of
the present ineumljent who had brousrht
disgrace upon the State.

This Is Good News !
A Southern Railway official tells the
Raleigh News and Observer that he
has good reason to believe that the
Reidsville-Kernersville link will be
built at an early day.
The Ga3tonia-Mt. Mourne link, he
thinks, will not be built for sometime
yet, probably several years. Con
struction of the Reidsville link will do
away with the necessity for a double
track between Salisbury and Greens
boro, and will make the through line
a few miles shorter.

First Reports Were Not Kxaggerated
Impossible to Aggregate Dam
age at This Time Some Por
tions Completely Devastated.
London. Sept. 15. Advices this
morning show that the first reports
regarding the destruction of life and
property by the hurricane which
swept Barbudoes, St. Vincent, St.
Lucia and other Islands of the
Windward group, were not exagger
ated. Iudeed, as appalling as the de
tails are, they fail to present an ade
quate idea "of the terrible havoc
wrought by the storm. The estimated
los of life is believed to le far short
of the actual number killed, while the
number rendered homeless is greater
than at first stated.
The aggregate damage to property
cannot he estimated even approximately-
as the winds, rainfall, tidal
waves anu landslides have completely
devastated the country. It is believed
the dead at Kingston, capital of St.
Vincent, which was totally destroyed,
will reach three hundred and the num
ber of homeless will reach twenty
thousand. The British man-of-war

Why Not Invite Sportsmen from the
The bird hunting season will soon
be on and it is reported that there are
more partridges this year than usual.
This means that the sport promises to
be fine when the season opens.
If people who have comfortable
homes in good shooting sections
would let the fact be known through
out the Northern States, they would
attract sportsmen who would beard
with them, to the mutual advantage of
all concerned, bportsmen are good
fellows, too, and make the best of
good company. Some of these North
er men, wno come down ssoutn dur
ing the bird hunting season, with their
fine guns, can hardly hit a barn door.
It is the outdoor life and novelty of
the thing that catches them, and they
don't mind paying for the pleasure
oi it.

in the State. North Carolina grows
much more than half the bright to

Will Not "Sport" With It.
The Reidsville Weekly says that the
stealing of Rev. Dr. H. A. Brown's
baptizing suit and a collection plate
Irom tne .r irsi uapiisi cnurcn, recalls
the experience of Dr. B. F. Dixon,
when he was supplying the pulpit of
the Methodist church at Statesville
several years ago. A suit of clothes
was stolen from him and the genial
divine announced that if the gentle
man proposed to enter the ministry it
was all right, but if he took his clothes
to sport in he would kick. It may
afford "Mr. Brown some comfort to
know that the thief will hardly attempt
to sport in his baptizing suit.
