St. Louis, Special.-At last nine men
were killed and as many more injured
in a fire which broke out Tuesday night
in the flv-story stone and brick build
ing located at No. 214 Chestnut street,
occupied by the American Tent and
Awning Comnpany. The building sud
denly collaps:d and although the half
dozen 4men' whb were caught in the
rash had not been'reached by their

they have succumbed. The dead:
August Thierry. rst assistant Phief,

Daniel Steele, foreman, caught in ru

inspector for the Imperial Electric
Light Company, badly injured by fall
ing through a shaft; Patrick McCarthy,
engineer, caught by falling walls, se
-iously hurt; William Julieb, driver
for Marshal Thielly, caught by falling
walls, seriously hurt.
The building in which the fire orig:
nated was located in the old business
section of the city and was about fifty
years old. The blaze, which proved a
master, had been brought' practically
under control when -suddenly. with ab
solutely no warning, the building col
lapsed and came down in a heap with
a noise that could be heard for blocks.

New Enterprises That Are Enriching
Our Favored Section.
An illustration of the possibilities of
industrial development in the South is
seen in the Slayden-Kirksey Woolen
Mills of Waco, Texas. This institution,
which was established in 1884, annual
ly consumes 1,000,000 pounds of wool,
which is obtained within a radius of
150 miles of the city. This company
employs 600 operatives, and from the
raw product carries the wool through
to the finished garment, making wors,
teds, cassimeres and pants, which are
sold in twenty-one States, twenty-six
traveling men being employed for that,
purpose. It is the boast of this com
pany that under one roof it carries its
work from the sheep to the finished
garment, having the ncessary facili
ties and machinery for treating the
wool through all stages of preparation.

Carolina Northern Extensions.
The Carolina Northern Railroad, re
cantly completed between Lumberton,
N. C., and Marion, S. C., a distance of
forty-one miles, it is reported, will
be considerably extended during the
present year. In a letter to the Manu
facturers' Record Mr. Augustus Mel
er, president of the company, wrote
that an extension from Marion was in
contemplation. It is understood that
this extension will terminate at
Charleston, while another line will be
built between Lumberton And Fayette
ville, N. C., forming a ntw route be
tween Charleston and Fayetteville,
and connecting' with the. Carolina
Central division of the Seaboard Air
Line at Lumberton. It has been re
ported that the Carolina Northern
Railroad was closely associated with
the Seaboard Air Line, and the Char
leston extension, if built, would give
the latter another outlet at tidewater. -
The total length of the road, it thus
completed will be 175 miles.
