Arm Torn From Body.
Gaffney, Special.-One of the most
shocking accidents ever witnesse(d
here occurred with Montie Curry. a
young son of Mr. J. H. Curry, as the
victim. His condition cannot be de
termined. although it is thoughl.t to
be decidedly grave. The facts arc
about ts follows: Curry was wo!king
at a brickyard at the drum used for
putting up cars of dirt from the pit.
It was his duty to manipulate the levei
on the machine that pulled up the
cars of clav. He was to do this
when the signal, the ringing of a bel!.
was given. While waiting for the
signal he had apparently gone over
to the other side from his lever, near
a swiftly revolving shaft. and was
playing wxith a small piece of old worn
out belting, which lie had wrapped
around the shaft, supposedly to see
what effect it would have or to wait
for it to get too hot to hold. Strav
strings from the belting finally eau ht I
the shaft and, in turn, caught the
boy. At every revolution of the shaft
the body not only struck the ground
but struck a large piece of timber,
which was near by. His clothes were
torn entirely from his body. When
the frightened hands reached him he
was absolutely without a stitch of
clothing on, even his shoes- being torn
from his feet. One arm, the right
one, was torn from the body at the
wrist and was found some distance
away. The same arm was broken
above the elbow. Both legs were
broken above the knee, and it is fear
ed'that internal injuries were sus

Columbia, Special.-The trustees of

Miller came before the board and ex

complied with the request of the
board, which was embodied in the
following resolution: "Resolved,
That this board after a full c-onfer
ence with President Thomas E. Miller
in reference to his resignation and
believing said resignation was sent
in hastily and under a misappreheni
sion of the board 's action, is of the
opinion that it will be for the best in

that said resignation be withdrawn
and that Dr. Miller remain at the

Large Increase in Some Lines in
The Last Ten Years.
A special Washington dispatch to
the Bakimore Sun says:
The fact that exports of domestic
merchandise from the United States
have doubled within the last 10 years,
ooupled with the constant demand
tfor information concerning articles
in which that growth was developed,
has set the experts of the Bureau of
Statistics of the Department of Com
meree and Labor to figuring. The re
sult has been the preparation of a
special table showing, in the order of
magnitude. the principal factors in
the export trade of the fiscal year
which ended June 30 last. To this
they have added, for comparative pur
poses, a column showing the exporta
tions of the same articles in 1896.
The analysis shows that three class.
es-raw cotton. provisions and iron
and steel manufactures--had in 1906
attained each a total exportation of
more than $100,000,000, which in 1896
but two elasses-cestton and provis
ions-were entitled to that distine
tion. In 1906 the articles whieb
showed each an exportation of be
tween $50,000,000 and $100.000,000
were five in number-copper manu
factures, refined mineral oil, corn.
flour and manufactures of cotton. A
decade earlier, in 1S96, but two items
fell into this group-refined mineral
oil and flour.
In the fiscal year just ended 17 arti
cles or classes of articles showed each
an export value of from $10,000.000
to $42,000.000-cattle, leather and its
products. boards, unmanufactured to
bacco, wheat, agricultural implements,
oil cakes, bituminous coal, chemicals.,
oats, vegetable oils, timber, fruits and
nuts, manufactures of wood, crria
ges, scientific instruments and spirits
of turpentine-while in 1896 there
were but nine articles entitled to a
place in this class-iron. and steel,
corn, wheat, cattle, tobacco, leather,
cotton manufactures, copper manu
factures and boards
Clothe and Feed Other Nations.
Raw cotton still occupies first rank
and is eiititled to the title of "King
Cotton.'' whiich it has Lorne for years.
Provisions3 continued to rank in see
ond place. indicating that the United
States is .till doing business as a
storehouse that furnishes the food
prodnects fo3r many other countries.
Iron and steel manufactures have
taken rank in third place and refined
mineral oil has dropped from third
place in 1S96 to fifth place in 1906.
Copper manufactures have shown a
notable growth, having advanced from
eleventh place in 1S96 to fourth
place in 1906. While flour
shows an increase of $7,000,000
in the decade, its relative po
sit ion among the leading articles of
ransportation has changed from
fourth in 1896 to seventh in 1906,'and
wheat, whose exportation of $40.000,
000 gave it sixth place in 1896 has
receded to thirteenth place, with a
total exportation of $28,757,517 in
the year just ended.
Agricutural implements exported
are five times as great in value as in
1896, and this large increase has ad
vanced the poshion of that class from
twenty-third in 1896 to fourteenth in
1906. Exports of oats, which oc
cupied the thirty-first rank in 1896,
quadrupled during the decade and
advanced to eighteenth place last
Cotton manufactures, while small
in comparison with those of Great
Britain, Germany and France, especi
ally in view of our great supply of
raw cotton have shown some im
provement since 1896, their posi
tion among our exportations having
advanced from twelfth in 1896 to
eighth iri 1906, and the value of their
exports from $16,837,396 a decade
ago to nearly $53,000,000 in the year
Comparative Table of Exports.
The following table shows the value
of 32 leading classes of articles ex
ported in 1896 and 1906 and includes
90 per cent. of the exports of last
year, thus affording a ready means
of tracing the elements of growth in
our exports since 1896:
