THE WORK OF MASKED MEN.
Two Barrels of Whiskey Seized ami
Afterwards Taken By Masked Men.
Revenue Officer Richard Harris,
of Concord, with all his experience
of blockaelers has yet a little to learn
ai he discovered this morning.
Yesterday afternoon Mr. Harris
was driving along near Ritchfield,
when he came upon a wagon in
which were two barrels of block.
The driver was gone and Mr. Harris
lost no time in seizing upon the
He took it to Ritchfield and had
it stored away in a house and hired
several guards to watch it during
the night. The wheels were taken
from the wagon so that the blcck
ader could not even recover this.
This morning about 2 o'clock the
guards became weary of the loDg
vigil of the night and repaired to
Shortly after the guards had re
tired several masked men came
upon the scene and removed the
whiskey from the house in which it
was stored. It was only the work
of a moment for them to remove the
whiskey, but then they found the
wheels taken off the wagon.
Nothing daunted, they set to
work, placed the wheels bacK on
the wagon, put the whiskey inside
and drove away.
And so it was that when Mr.
Harris arose this morning he found
the previous day's work as com
pletely fruitless of result as if it
hsd never been done,
Nothing has since been heard
of either the whiskey or men. Salis

There are about 1,300 colored
voters registered in Iredell county
and of this number about 450 more
than one-third are registered in
Stutesyille township. The Land
mark has said that there are many
illegal cases in Statesville. and there
are. Here is an instance of it:
In one ward in this town three
young colored men have registered.
In 1891, five years ago, when a
school census of this town . was
taken, these same boys or their paN
entB gave their ages aa 12, 13, and
15. There was no reason why
their ages should have been given
falsely at that time, and it la to be
presumed they told the truth about
it. That being so, the oldest of
these would-be voters is now only
20, the next 18 and the next 17.
Yet they are registered and expect
to vote at the coming election.

CONC01U, N. C. WEDNESDAY,
What London Thinks of the Nltua
tion in Wheat.
London, Oct. 27. The Telegraph
says, regarding the demand for and
supply of wheat: "The stocks of
foreign wheat at the principal Brit
ish ports are stated to be insufficient
to feed the country a fortnight.
The alight fall on American ex
changes Saturday gave the English
market a downward tendency, but
the opinion of one of the best known
corn factors, Mark Lane, is that
American wheat will speedily rise
with a bang, and the Christmas
price be much further enhanced."

this medicine has often averted

Many a nervous woman sits up all tn
Ipht and trie to read herself sleepy. Nine
to one she don't accomplish her purpose.
Nine to one, she gets more and more ner
vous. The slightest sound strikes terror to
her heart. The dark corners of the room
contain a thousand frights. She doesn't
know what she is afraid of, but she is afraid
actually, honestly, nervously, abjectly afraid.
Healthy women are not cowards. If a wo
man is nervous and sleepless and afraid ol
the ni9tle of her own dress, there is some
thing the matter with her. The most deli
cate nerves in her body are set on edge by
weakness or disease. Nine-tenths of the
nervousness, irritability and bad temper in
women is merely a symptom of ill health
ill health of the delicate and sensitive or
ganism that makes her a woman. If she is
overworked, or over-worried, the effect will
show its If there first. There is no use tak
ing harmful and deadly narcotics for ner
vousness and sleeplessness. It will leave
the bod- in a worse condition than it wa
before. The way to effect a cure is to cure
the cause. Dr. Pierce's Favorite Prescrip
tion will do it. It has cured tens of thou
sands of cases of female weakness and ner
vousness. It is a most wonderful invigorat
ing nervine or nerve food. It brings sound
healthy sleep and restores the glow and
bloom of health. It is the only medicine
now before the public for woman's peculiai
ailments, ac. , ted to her delicate organiza
tion by & regularly graduated physician
an experienced and skilled specialist ' in
these maladies. It cannot do harm in any
condition of the system. Its sales exceed
the combined sales of all other medicine
The story of its discovery and its
wonderful success is told in one part of

stamps to pay for mailing only. World's
