bigotry and unrestrained by discip

wants by tbe sword, liTin at tbe

tbe harvests of tbe peasants and
tbe merchandise of tbe citizens.
More than three-fourths of the
landed proprietors bad been des-

tbe sack of Rome by the Vandals,
tbe European world bad never
mourned over a national disaster so
wide in its eztent or so fearful in its
character." Such was the spirit and
work of tbe Church.
If the free spirit of Christ and its
moral influence had spread equally
with tbe theology of the Church and
its ruthless power, tbe Church would
have aided instead of retarding tbe
progress of human freedom. ''While
the religion of the world underwent
a total change," says Milman, "tbe
Church rose of the ruins of tbe tem
ple and the establishment of Pagan
ism became gradually extinct or
suffered violent supprexsion: tbe
moral revolution was far more slow
and far less complete. While they
swept in converts indiscriminately
from the' palace and tbe public
street, while the emperor and the
lowest of the populace were alike
admitted on little more than the
open profession of allegiance, they
were satisfied if their allegiance in
this respect were blind and complete.
The common, vulgar incentives of
action were infused into the ex
panding Christian body. Men be

Clovif, King of the Franks, for in
stance, was converted in 490. "His
conversion made no alteration in the
policy and conduct of Clovis: he re
mained the same mixture of cun

sensuality." There followed the
wholesale conversion of his people,
who carried through their baptism
into the Church their heathen super
stitions and their barbarous notions.

tides. When tbe moon is at the times
of the first and last quarter, each of
the two attractions raises a tide at
tbe expense of the other, and these are
known as tbe neap tides.
On the 9tb the moon will be in peri

may not be amiss to remark here as to
what is meant by perigee end apogee.
That point in the moon's orbit nearest
to tbe earth, is railed her perigee, and
that point furthest from the earth her

moon with Neptune on the 2nd, with

minutes past 8 o'clock p. m., at which
time the sun enters the sien Capricor-

which he will again turn his face

they relied with the greatest confi

We have been favored with the
brief of Dr. Thompson's connsel in
the contested election ease of Thomp
son vs. Shaw, from tbe 3rd Congres
sional 'district. We have not had
the time to give it, which its import
ance demands, but from the exami
nation which we have given it, the
fraud alleged by Dr. Thompson is
In Onslow county it is shown that
at one precinct the registrar kept the
registration books up to the night
before the election, and then rode
twenty miles to Jacksonville to rt-
SURRENDER HIS BOOKS
to the clerk of the court. This was
done of course to 'prevent any elec
tion being held, as this precinct
Sumersill was largely Populist,
and to give the county returning
board, a pretext to "throw out" that
vote; at Jacksonville precinct, Dr.
Thompson was allowed thirty-two
votes, while one witness, Mr. Bar
bee, testified under oath that he
SAW FIFTY VOTERS
cast their ballots for Dr. Thompson.
At Swanaboro the election was held
in the vpper .lory of a Iricl ttore, where
it was never held before, and no au
thority was had for holding it there,
except the arbitrary will of tbe Dem
ocratic registrar and judges.
In Craven county, at Riverdale
precinct Dr. Thompson received
eighty-one votes, while he was al
lowed only twenty-four. At Fort
Barnwell precinct, while Dr. Thomp
son received mnety-six votes,
NONE WERE ALLOWED
him by the returning board.
In Jones county, the precinct
chosen by the county returning
board to be thrown out, was Beaver
Creek, where Shaw got twenty-five
and Dr. Thompson one hundred and
tixtcen tote The vote as cast gave
Dr. Thompson a clear majority of
seventy-six in Jones county.
But it was in Cumberland county
that the crowning infamy and frauds
were committed. In one precinct it
was proven that the Democratic
judges in counting the ballots were
seen to call out tickets voted for
Thompson for Shaw; and when this
was objected to and denounced an
other Democratic judge so placed
himself as to
PREVENT ANY ONE SEEING THE JUDGE
who was callincr out the votes this
was clear fraud, and here they were
caught in the act, and this evidence
was not contradicted or denied by
bhaw or bis friends.
In tho townshio where Favette-
ville is located there was only one
election place, the township having
a population of 6,012, and Fayette
ville 4,222 according to the United
States census (11th), while the local
authorities of Favetteville claim a
population fer it, of bttween 6,000
anu 4,vvv, and yet only
ONE VOTING PLACE
for this entire territorv.
Clerks wero appointed by the
chairman or the Democratic county
executive committee previous to
the election, to hold it. The Demo

"Many invalids believe that remedies
necessarily imply medicines, and med
icines only. This is a serious mistake,
for it not only leads them to be content
with such limited effects as drugs are
able to produce, but prevents them
from acquiring a proper knowledge of
the remedial resources which exist
within the organism itself the very
agencies by which in health, the vital
powers are developed and maintained.
"In the compilation of these Reports
we have ascertained that the nature of
these physical agencies, as adapted to
remedial purposes are at easy com
mand, and we have no hesitancy in
saying that after a careful investiga
tion, at the hands of trained represen
tatives of our Secret Inquiry Bureau,
that these remedial methods obtain
their development and achieve their
greatest results through using Im
