- of the terrorists still continues unabat

awful cruelty of the Radicals toward
their captives. ' Jews are being hauled
to prison by thousands, many children

continue the massacre. In some cases
the revolutionists employ children to
assassinate officials as they are gener
ally unsuspected and are easy to obtain
places of advantage where they can do
their deadly work. ' ;
Rushville, Ind., Sept. II. -Three
men were killed in a peculiar manner

Dogs. Start A Runaway. -
Yesterday morning Mr. J.1 E. Hawk
fastened his horse in front of the
Stewart building on Pollock street and
two dogs engaged in a fight right un
der the horse's heels, The horse not
being used to this procedure naturally
became frightened and broke aay leav
ing a part of the harness attached to
the post The horse ran up Middle and
Griffith streets to the Pine Lumber
Company's office where he knew he
had friends. .On his .way he struck a
transfer, dray and telephone pole and
got to his destination with the carriage
quite badly damaged. It is a question
now which is .the more valuable, curs
that wander around town fighting every
dog they corns across and keeping up a
general turmoil fuss and more or less
anxiety for lives and property. These
worthless dogs are not only responsible
oftentimes for damaged property but
they destroy rest at night by their ia
cessant barking; they nronopolize the
sidewolks and pedestrians either have
to step on them'or go around them via
the middle of the roid. It is not a veiy
pleasing proposition to contemplate,
when wa take into consideration that
we can do without dogs, and that with
which they interfere is valunble.
We are glad to say that the police
are thinning out these useless curs but
still there are too many. The time wiil
como when the dog will be an issue jn
politics if it becomes much more obnox
ions Already it's as Lad as tLe trust.

The Revenue Service, ; like the busi
ness world, is. getting permeated with
lady officers, A broad ew. officer, in
the lovely person ot Miss Maude Baker
of Reidsville, was here last night, en
route from Raleigh to Reidsville, Miss
Baker was yesterday commissioned by
Collector Duncan as a deputy collector.
She will not go raiding 'after blockade
stills, but has been assigned to office
duty as stamp clerk, f vh v ; .;..?
Deputy Collector Baker is the daugh
ter of a prominent republican of Rock
ingham, Mr. G. W. " Baker, who is at
present serving as a juror in the Fed
eral Court here, in tho Hardin trial, ,
The Federal Court 'itself, shows a
commendable partiality for lady officers
The Deputy Clerk here, is Miss Hatty
Causey; and she is one of the best of
ficers in the United States. - The court
stenographer, Miss Lula Sherrill, is so
efficient it makes even old men's heads
swim to watch the . lightning speed of
her nimble fountain pen. Another splen
did officer of feminine charm and man
ly efficiency is Miss Nessie Myrick, a
deputy marshal in marshal Millikan's
department Another deputy collector
is Miss Williams in the collectors office
at Asheville. It is remarkable how
quickly the ladies catch on to the run
of official duties how officiant they are,
and wonderful how quick the men adopt
themselves to their presence and im
prove accordingly. . v i ', . ;
There was more or less activity In
blind tiger circles , here yesterday judg
ing from the arrest made,. which num
bered seven. Two of the parties were
a little out of the ordinary, one being a
cork legged negro named Gus Brown
who arrived from his home in Winston
with a plentiful supply of liquor, was
caught and locked up, and his whiskey
confiscated before he had sold more
than a pint - The other-was Albert
Chavis, a well . known licensed public
carriage driver and owner.' .. Chavis, it
has developed used his carriage as a
kind ' of perambulating bar, ' selling
drinks and bottles of the .ardent all
about town: But he is not as bad as
that water wagon driver in Wilmlng'
ton, who got drunk Saturday and from
his perch on the very pinnacle of the
water wagon, came near drowning six
policemen who were innocently stand
ing on the sidewalk of the principal
street which the water wagoner was
trying to sprinkle, but persisted in
driving next to the curbing instead of
keeping in the middle of the road.
The sheriff of Randolph county came
here this morning and carried away
two prisoners arrested here yesterday.
One was a white man, Grover Cleveland
Blaylock, who is wanted at Liberty on
a charge of breaking in two stores
there and doing some wholesale steal
ing. He was tried before a magistrate
two months ago and default of a $200
bond was being taken to' jail, when he
broke loose and running from the con
stable escaped. The $S5 reward offered
for his capture, will be claimed by
policemen Stedman of this city, who
located Blaylock in a restaurant. ' Tom
Cox, an escaped convict from the mad
force, was also caught here last night
and the Randolph officer took him back
along with Blaylock.-.
