DURRANT fOUND GUILTY.
- A Dramatic Kccno Between Blnusclf
'' and Mother aw lite Verdict is Am-
. Sak Fraxcisco, Noy. 1. Tbeo
dore Durrant murdered Blanche Lv
mont. Tbat was the yerdict of the
jury in the ens this afternoon. The
jury was ont 28 minutes. When
wordiOame into the court room that
theverdifit was ready, Durrant sat
beside his counsel coaversing with
his mother and several of her lady
friends As soon as Mrs. Durrant
learned that the jury was coming iD,
her demeanor changed from one of
" gaity and a lok of dread came to
her face which was not reflected in
that of her eon. lie stocially
watched the jurymen as chey took
their Beats aa if to get from, their
features the import of the verdict
which their early return portended.
. .When Foreman Dutton pronounc
ed the verdict of guilty of murder in
the first degree t he large audience
whcbhad listened in perfect Bilence
for thVworda he was to s ntter, rose
and uttered a yell which echoed far
out in the corridors. Most of those
in the audience were women. The
face of the accused's mother was
averted as she had nerved herself for
the ordeal; but though possessed of
marvelous courage a cry burst from
her lips, followed by an bjsterical
burst of sobs.
As he listened latently to the
words which sealed his fate, Dur.
rant partially rose fiom his seat.
The look on bis face was one of de
fiance and it was apparent that he
had it in mind to address the jury.
The first cry from bis molher
changed his mind, if he had such
intention. He sat down, turned to
his mother and took her fondly in
hie arms. She re-ted her head on
hieoulder and with his left arm
about her slender form he held her
ia a tender embrace, with his right
hand stroking her hair. He seemed
oblivious to the fact that a verdict
which meant death to him had been
returned, oblivious to everything ex
cept the . weeping woman who had
sat patiently by his Bide through the
long trial, cheering him with words
of hope. If his display was rjf
nerve, it was marvelous, and if of
.callousness to any . but filial sensa-
' tions, it was equally maryeloua.
Durrant takes the yerdict coolly
' and Bays he has not yet lost hope.
.'His a' tor ney will appeal to the Su-
;i. Durrant will . be sentenced next
Friday, and the time then fixed for
th) murder of Minnie Williams.

FOOLING OVER A MATTER.
A Tonnir Man Gets In Jnil tow Torg-
ing Check on i Bet.
'. Morgan ton Heraid: A young man
friv ng bis name as Charly Reynolds
from Lincolnton, who came to Moi
pan ton several weeks ago, on last
Thursday stopped into the store of
D B Mull & Co., sear tbe depot,
and became engaged in a canversa
tion with IMr- Lee Mull. During
the conversation he bet Mr. Mull a
dollar that he could draw a check
on the Piedmont Bank in the name
of O B Mull & Co., present it and
get the money on it. Mr, Mull took
tbe bet and gave Reynolds a blank
check. Reynolds drew the check
for $18.50, went to the bank and got
the money on it. He carried the
money back, offered it to Mr. Mull
and claimed bis dollar. Mr. Mull
refused to accept the amount of the
check and notified the bank that
the "checks had been forged. The
officers of the bank had Reynolds
arrested on the charge of forgery.
and after remaining in jail several
days he was tried last Tuesday be
fore Esq aire ETA Cobb and bound
over to the next term of 'Burke Su
perior Court. Failing to give bond
he was remanded to jail. It seems
from the evidence in the case that
there was no intention on the part
of Reynolds to forge the check for
gain, and it is unfortunate for the
fellow iu getting'into such a muddle.
Woman Arrested for Peddling Witn-
For tbe past seyeral months par
ties living around the factories in
this city have been ccmplaining of
being annoyed by peddlers, and the
matter was laid before the authori
ties, i nday morning Sheriff Sims
was notified that a strange woman
was peddling jewelry and other ar
ticles over the city and upon invest
ligation, he found her at Forest
Hill, and she having no license, ar
rested ber. He bad considerable
trouble in making her understand
that she was required to have license
furnished her by the state and
coo uty before she could be allowed
lo j.eddie her stuff, but with the aid
ot Mr. John Earnhardt, a yonng
carpenter of the city, he succeeded
in bringing the woman and her
parcels down town. After reaching
Esquire Hills' office, she was made
to understand tbat she would have
to produce $10 for license, forfeit
her goods or go to jail. The woman
stated that she had no money, and
that the goods were tbe property of
another and went to jail rather than
give them np. She is a native
Syrian and gave her name as Mary
Slurp. She hails from Charlotte,
ati'l : as often been seen in the city,
usually in company with a man.

Sheriff John A Sims wound up

of general good feeling and pros
perity, everybody bas more money
thif year and nre in better condition
than formerly ai that the country-
m-n, as well as tonmen, are hap
uier and more content. "When in
No. 10 towuship last Wednesday,'
saja the sheriff, "a very striking in
'ident occurrtd. It was the prompt
ness of a colored woman,
, 60 .years of ajje, who walked

rence of this kind in th s d.y und
time u singular indeed, for it ia Sel
dom, if ever, acyone walks that far
to pay a debt. This aged colored
woman deserves worthy mention for
her promptness and her custom, as
she does the same thing every year.

Her absence from the sleeper was
discovered soon after her jump from

about the head, but no fracture of

Thursday night she was sent home

Another remarkable thing about
the miraculous escape is that the
shock completely restored the young

time her mental troubles had given
ber relatives and friends serious
alarm, nu her restoration is regard

A Ciood Indication.
Charlotte Observer : If the pat
ronage of excursions and circuses
and the attendance upon schools
afford any test of tbe financial con
dition of a people, surely ours are
not aa poor as tome would hayo us
believe. There were never as many
excursions run in North Carolina in
any previous season as were last
summer and nearly all were largely
patronized. The circuses in the
State this fall have drawn great
crowds and the schools never opened
with as many pupils on their rolls.
People will give op money for
pleasure which they will not bun
render for more important things,
and the school attendance is. we

8. If the cartridge sticks, "the
stout blade of a knife will probably

Greensboro Christian Advocate:
Dr. Carroll has been investigating a
census of the churches in the United
States. The table of communicants
is aa follows :
Disciples of Christ, or
United Brethren 225,281
All Others 812.582
In studying these statistics you
must remember that Itbe Catholic
'communicants' include all mem
bers of families thirteen years of
age. it we should number tne
Methodist or Baptist churches on
the same basis, either of them would
largely outnumber the Catholics.
So there is no grounds for fear of
the Catholics at present, but pers
haps there is no other organization
that ia more diligent in cultivating
its field than these who claim to be
in the succession of Peter. They
