This week the Biblical Recorder
,t.s up its fight against Maj.
; ; .;;(' tor a statement reflecting
:: the Baptist den orri i n ati on ,
which ihe late Dr. Pntchard
tiiared hiin with making, bnt
which Maj. Guthrie denies.
TK Recorder savs :
It i far from our aim to inter
fore with any party. The readers of
tluic columns know that we are in
dependent. If any man rt fleets
upon the Baptist people of these
ohnrche3, if any man reflects upon
the principles for which they con
Mid, whether he is a candidate or
not, the Recorder cannot be trae to
the people who support it, cannot
re true to the Convention of which
it i the organ, cannot be true to its
-;illirg, and be silent. The time
calms when the Recorder must tot
rcunt the cost.
l)r. Britehard, who with Maj
riuihrie attended a banquet at the
University in, June, 1895, wrote of
the occasion in an account to Charity
and Chillren, the organ of the o
phan;ige aa follows :
"The addresses were generally
"on1, and in excellent spirit a d
t-iste ; but there was one which to
n:e personally was cilensiye and
certainly Dot calculated to do any
,;:cd. That was the speech or. W,
A Guthrie on the University and
the church. Lie charged that the
Baptists who opposed State aid to
higher schools of learning were
t-Lcmiea to the University and
sought to destroy it, and that they
wtr traitors to their country and
B-tiring to 03 fair, we sent a copy
'f the hitter part of this paragraph
to Mr. Guthrie before he was nomi
rated. lie denied it in a private
i,:tcr and also in the newspapers,
ia the latter suggested that we had
i low motive in bringing the matter
Br. Britchard cannot speak now.
Hut he would not have written, if
he h vl not known. It ill becomes a
ri3 who would lead the people to
'-cntrudict the statement of a minis
ter of God after he is dead when he
h:; i several months in which to con
tradict it when he was living and
-Id speak for himself. The state
-i ut had been in print several
months while Dr. Pntchard was
hve ; it was in print more than a
yar before Mr. Guthrie denied it.
-f further evidence than the word of
ft ffiau known and respected and
bved by the people of this State for
fcre than twentyfive years were
df d, we would cite the fact that
there was no denial until it became
latter of personal interest ; and
artber, the fact that the statement
has been confirmed by others ; and
rther, the. fact thatabeloyed mm-13t-
m this State is now ready to
rn that in a conversation after
account was oris ted in Charity
al Children Dr Pritchard reiter
ated the statement in his presence,
e denial, the insinuation as to
0ur mtive has been made ; and may
he made again.

Republicans, who elected delegates Fe" M
to attend the county convention
tomorrow. From what can be
learned, the nomination for Sheriff
to run on the fusion ticket will be
close between Mr. T C Strieker, of
this city, and Mr. M L Buchanan,
of Mt. Pleasant.
The meeting in Ward 4 was com
posed entirely of negroes, with one
exception. Caleb Boger was made
chairman of the meeting and en
deavored to conduct the pow-wow
on parliamentary rules. The meet
ing was amusing throughout. One
old darkey arose to address the
chair while another was speaking.
The chair said : "I can't hear you."
The old darkey got nearer and be
gan again, when the chair the sec
ond time told him that he couldn't
hear him. The old man drew still
nearer and began in a tone that
was heard more than a block away,
and not for a moment did he
realize why the chair couldn't hear
him. This precipitated a equabble
and it sounded very much like the
war whoop Indians give before
scalping a foe.

lives a few door3 below Mr. Cook,

whose home is at Danville, Ya ,
who runs as flagman on the through
freight conducted by Capt. Clark,
met with a horrible death at the
Charlotte Junction on the Southern

in the frog, he fell and the engine
and several of the cars ran over hie
body, cutting the man in halves, the
entire length of his body up to his
head, which was severed from the
body and rolled to one side. Myers
was on his homeward run, but the
young wife that awaited his coming
was overcome with grief and was
prostrate when his mangled form
reached her later iu the dav. It
was a horrible deatn.
Rev. Miller Called.
It will be remembered that Revs.
II JST Miller, ot t Did county, and W
A Lutz, of Winston, were in Greens
boro several weeks since, looking
after the Lutneran mission at that
point. They recommended to the
6)Ecd that this be made a regular
mission point. The members of this
oaarge have since extended a call to
Rev. MilJer, and it has been circu
lated amo- g the members of his
congr-gution at Salem Church that
he intended accepting thn call. We
are glad to learn from him that such

The Morgan A Wright Guarantee.
The guarantee of the "good tires"
is broad enough to cover almost any
kind of ailments and to satisfy the.
mo3t exacting rider, but the line
must be drawn somewhere, and Mor

known to riders every where that the
guarantee does not cover damages
resulting from the carrying of anti
leak preparations inside the tire.
By having as much air as possible
in the M. & W. quick-repair tire

right exercise vcill

Fresh air is a great
a great nerve tonic
if a woman be in
condition to take it.
A healthy woman

She can avoid the

she pursues the
same methods will
not cure her if she
be already sick
Taken under medical direction, in con
nection with the right medicine, they
will help effect a cure. No women who
suffers at all from so-called " female weak
ness' should attempt athletics of any
sort. She should first put herself into
possession of strong and hearty health by
taking Dr. Pierce's Favorite Prescription.
After she is thoroughly well, exercise and
diversion will help to keep her well. The
cure should come first. Dr. Pierce's Fa
vorite Prescription is designed and rec
ommended for only the one thing. It
acts directly upon one set of organs. No
matter what is the matter with them, it
will cure it. It will not cure r.nythinr
else. It is a wholesome tonic, an invig
orating ne n ine, or nerve-iood as well as
a. healing medicine, and thousands of
perfectly well wnv.ien have found that by
taking it regularly during the period of
pregnancy, the danger and pain of par
turition were much lessened, and in
many cccs, almost entirely obviated.
