The existence of a gang of chicken thieves was proved and the mystery of the disappearance of nice table fowls is in a large part explained. The boy Willie Grady gave the police names of the three other boys and where they could be found and policemen Lupton and Bowden went to their homes at 4 o'clock yesterday morning and arrested them. They seemed impressed with the sense of their guilt to the extent that they were constantly endeavoring to put the blame on each other. The fact that they had several chickens which have been identified by persons to whom the fowls belonged was of minor importance.. ' The other three boys were Ed Lee, Jim Stevenson and Sam Wright Ed Lee was placed on trial first and Wil li Grady was called as a witness. He said hv was made to join them by threats of beating and that he really did not want to steal chickens. The boy said that the other boys stole the chickens and gave them to him to carry. -: y--:,v-.;;7-. -: ' 7 During the trial it was developed that not only the hen coop of Mr. Brooks had been visited but three or four others in different parte of the city had received attention from them Friday night. They plead not guilty to the charge and each one told a plausible story. - They unquestionably belong to a gang of thieves that have been stealing for a long time. They have acquired much smoothntsj in ras cality. Mayor Patterson bound them ' over to Superior court for trial under $50 bonds. Not being able to furnish the security they were taken to jail. W. H. Wilson appeared for the boy, Ed Lee.

I had been affected with eatarrh of the stomach about all my life, and was taken bad every Spring and Summer. "I used several kinds of patent medicines, but they did uie no good. I then toot a treatment under an M. D., which did me but little good. By this time I had come to Where I could eat nothing but a little soup. I had severe pains, had lost in weight and could not do anything. I began taking your medicines, Pernna and Manalin.

I at all I want to and my friends say that I look better than ever before, I will ever praise Peruna for its healing power." : Pe-ru-na Is a Systemic Remedy. If Peruna proves efficient for catarrh In one place, it will be equally potent in any other place, because it is a sys temic remedy. The people generally are very much misinformed as to the nature of catarrh. Catarrh is usually believed to be con fined to the head, nose and throat. Lat terly we sometimes hear of catarrh of the stomach and eatarrh of the towels. Seldom, if ever, do we hear of catarrh of any other organs. It is not because these organs are not subject to catarrh, nor that catarrh ol these organs is not a very common dis ease, but simply because it is not gener ally Known mat anections of utese organs may be due to catarrh. General Wheeler's First Meeting With Lee. "I found my way to the door1 of the office of the Superintendent of the Academy, The Superintendent's ordtr lyt whose duty it was to announce visi tors, was for a moment absent, and being ignorant of military , rules I knocked at the door. I heard the words 'come in.' As I entered, this re markable man, Robert E. Lee, who afterwards became a renowned warrior, rose from his seat behind his desk, met me as I approached, and placing his hand upon my shoulder, said with a welcome smile: 'A young cadet who has com to report? Never have I seen a form or face which so impressed me; his uniform was closely buttoi.ed, show tog his erect, well rounded and perfect figure; his manner was dignified and embodied modesty, kindness, benevo lence and all the characteristics which convey the idea of purity and nobility. He was in his forty-ninth year, mus tache faced, with slightly gray hair At that time he was a captain of engi neers, with brevet ranks of Major, Lieutenant Colonel and Colonel, which honors he won by courage and valuable service in the battles of Mexico. . So highly regarded was he that the Army and War Department considered him the logical and certain successor of General Scott as commander of the army.''; "In reply to the question I bowed to express the affirmative and after a few kind words he took me to the door of the Adjutant, Lieutenant L B. Fry, afterwards a prominent General, telling me that Lieutenant Fry would give me all instructions and .directions. - This kind, fatherly reception was different from my preconceived idea of military decorum; there was not a particle of austerity in the bearing of cither Colo nel Lee or Lieutenant Fry." ,.

The city of Wilmington was visited by one of the most destructive fires it has ever had; the worst since 18? 3. The cause is unknown but the genera devas tation was due to low pleasure from the water works which prevented ef ficient work by the firemen.

A New York Criticism of The Clans-?..- man. .;: : e Stage," a theatri-al magazine Publi shed in New York, has he follow ing to say of "The Clansman: ' "George H. Brennan brought ""The Clansman" to town: and some of the critics got out their biggest bludgeon) and proceeded to have much fun witlj it.' When all's said and done, however "The Clansman" comes mighty near to being one of the most remarkable dramas ever seen in New York. Thorn as Dixon, Jr., is author of "The Clans man." The play was dramatized from the same author's two books, I "The Leopard's Spots',' and "The Clansman.' It is a story of the South during the reconstruction period, and as such is a vivid and lasting picture of the condi tions that obtained during that painful period. .' ' '. -'. "Mr. Dixon does riot mince words or matters in his play at the Liberty thea tre. He proclaims the dogma that the negro is not nor can ever be the equal of the white man. Around this central idea he has wov.en a play of tremendous strength, somewhat melodramatic in spots, but strong dram all the time. 1 , "The author likewipe jut tifies the fa mous Ku Kiux Klan, and points out that is was organized for the distinct purpose of protecting the white women of the South against the black beasts whose crimes have for so many decades made the country's, blood boil with rage and resentment ; "Whatever may be said of "The Clansman" that it is, for instance, un couth in spots, and that is the truth it is a fibrous and stirring play of spier did story and bold, dashing treatment It is an answer to "Uncle Tom's Cab in." It has legitimately sensational episodes that go thundering into the brains and hearts of its audiences as few plays have done in recent years. ' At this writing it looks as if Mr. Brennan would finally make ."The Clansman? a dramatic institution that will last for years and be a standing reproach to those who would make the negro a full and complete equal of the Caucasian.

Preached to Pythians The Athenia Lodge, Knights of Pythias No. 8 attended the service at Christ Episcopal Church Sunday night in a, body and the sermon on the occa sion was most practical and inspiring. The text was taken from 2 Timothy 1:6 "Wherefore I put thee in remembrance that thou stir up the gift of God which is in thee." He made the duty of man to man of paramount importance and aptly illustrated his subject by the historical account of the friendship of Damon and Pythias with which the order is so familiar. : The love that was exemplified by those noble men is no more than can be and should be shown now and it is the exercise of suoh love as this that makes this woi Id a habitable place. The willingness of one man to die for another or to suffer for another has not been infrequent in the world's history and as our Saviour died on Cavalry , for all mankind fo ought we to love our fellowmen that should make some sacrifice even to the giving up of life itself. ,ilf Superior Court News The second week of Superior Court began yesterday with the case of Ab bott vs. the Atlantic Coast Line rail road.
