. Asbevillc Sun: Several trestles
have been washed away on the Mur-
phy Branch of the Western North
Carolina Railroad, beyond Balsam.
- The train which left here Wednes
day morning is on the other side of
these trestles and is not likely to
return to the city for sometime, in
fact, we hear that the damage is so
great, that it will take at least three
or four weeks to repair it.
Asheville Citizen: Mr. N. R. Tweed,
a deputy sheriff from Madison, ar
rived in the city yesterday after
noon, for the purpose of obtaining
, from Judge McRae a bench warrant
for the arrest of Ruff, the Haywood

shot and killed Gaither Reese in
Madison. Ruff is aid to be secret

be made to effect his capture.
Raleigh Visitor: Our journalistic

summoning him to the bed side of
his little girl, who is very ill, and as
the telegram states, "no better."

Mr. Todd is yet active and spright
