The fireman of the lumber
plant went to the boiler room to
replenish the fires In readiness for
the work of the day- He had
thrown one load of shavings into
the furnace, and while gone out
to get another load some of the
the burning shavings fell out and
set fire to things around the boil-
In a few moments the room

much blowing of whistles here

people are less liable to observe
a whistle alarm at such an hour.
The fire alarm gone at the mar

even this did not awaken people
far from it Still fire-
men and citizens heard the
alarm to hurry to the scene and
do effective work. A line of
hose was quickly run from the
nearest and the fire
was confined to the boiler house.

caught fire several times but by
good worK was put out and the
valuable plant saved.

An Old Knife.
Mr. Jesse L. Smith, of
Dam township, on Tuesday
showed us a very old pocket knife.
Mr. Smith says the knife war
given to him some years ago by
Mrs. Eliza Phillips, who was then
years of age. Mrs. Phillips
told him the knife was owned by
her grandmother who died during
the Revolutionary war. The
knife has a slightly curved
die and the blade has worn down
keen and small- It is well
served and stronger now than
most modem knives after they
have been used a little while.

Death in a distressing manner
came yesterday morning to
18-months-old son of Mr. and

child's head became caught
tween two of the upright rods at
the head of the iron bed In which

about o'clock, by an older sis-
he was dying and although a
physician was summoned his;
forts were unavailing. Death re-
from strangulation.
Unusual features of the affair
are the facts that both of the
parents of the child are deaf and
-dumb, while possessed these
faculties. Whether or not

The Charleston News and
is the organization of cotton
banks The proposition to he
placed before the farmers and
business men of the whole South
during the month of July, the
special says, is the organization
of what may be called cotton
In other words, it is
proposed to do a banking
with cotton as capital. In
the language of E D. Smith, cot-
ton is the South's currency and
there why it should
not be utilized as a basis for
banking as well as silver or gold.
In any community where the
and local business n
can secure or
as capital it is planned that they
shall organize a company and
erect a warehouse, which must
be according to regulation,
plans. Then they will be ready
for bu and will propose that
any farmer or any number of
farmers deposit with them their,
cotton, just as they might de
posit money with a bank, Sup-;
posing that bales of cotton;
are deposited in this way and
placed in the warehouse, with
insurance guaranteed by the
company and no storage charged,
the company would proceed to
utilize this cotton just as
bank s the y deposited
by its customers.
Taking the warehouse
for bales of cotton, the com-
would go to a bank, or any
other concern or prison
money to lend, and borrow money
upon these receipts at the cur-
rent rate and the current price
of cotton. With this money so
borrowed the company would go
into the local market
chase other cotton, say Dales,
which would be placed in the
warehouse Then upon these
bales the company would
r, in go to the bank and borrow
i and with this money
go into the local market
i-. id purchase other cotton, say
i bales. These bales would
I in be placed in the warehouse,
upon them the company
would borrow money with which
again to enter the market and
purchase other cotton, say
bales. This operation could be
kept up the borrowing cap-
of the cotton was exhaust-
ed, but this would hardly be
at any time, and it would
be possible to return the original
bales whenever the owner
made demand.
All of this reads mighty well
on paper, but to our mind the
