Conflagration Narrowly Averted
The stillness of Sunday afternoon
last was broken by a fire alarm,
which, notwithstanding that at the
time the streets were practically
deserted, called forth several hun
dred ppople in a few minutes. About
six o'clock great clouds of heavy,
black smoke were discovered corn
ing from the roof of Mrs. Ida Shep-|
pard's home, and as the fire was in
the attic the building at first seem
ed to be doomed. However, several
young men, forgetful of the danger,
scaled the roof even without the
aid of a ladder, and cut a hole
through the shingles. Mr. Vaughn,
one of the electricians at the mill,
who apparently possessed the nerve
and ex, e ience of a veteran city
fireman, defied the heat and smoke
and plunged down into the attic
where the fire was spreading, fol
lowed by several young men of the
town. While tbe bole was being
made in the roof, a bucket brigade
composed of all colors,<>izes,ages and
sexes were rashing water to the
roof in buck its pitchers, saucepans,
tubs to be poured upon the I
flames. After access was gained to
the fire it was soon gotten under
control and the splendid building
saved. This residence was erected
by Dr. W. E. Prescott in 189U, and
being constructed of the best heart
material that the county afforded at
that lime the fire could not have
bten (cntiolUd Lad it i.tt Utn
The origin of the fire is unknown.
Possibly due to "rats and matches."
It caught beneath the roof but not
njar the chimney. Besides the dam
age to the building, Mrs. Sheppard
sustained some loss through the re
moval of a portion of her furniture,
all of which is covev.*d by insurance.
While regretting the misfortune,
Mrs. Sheppard's friends rejoice with
her over the fact that the configura
tion, which at one time threatened
the total destruction of her home,
was not greater.

Got Their Guest Guessing.
An Episcopal clergyman, of Chi
cago, is reported to have been help
ed out of a bad break the other day
by the quick wit of his wife.
On the day in question he saw a
lady about to call whom he was
anxious not to meet. So he said
to his wife: "Now I'm off, ray dear,
PH run upstairs and escape till she
After about an hour he quietly
toptoed to the stair landing and lis
tened. All was quiet. Reassured,
he began to descend, and while do
ing so he thoughtlessly but em
phatically called out over the balus
ter: "Well, my dear, has that old
bore gone at last?"
The next instant a voice from be
low caused the cold perspiration to
bedew his ministerial brow and
rooted him to the spot.
Then there came a response
which sounded inexpressiblysweet to
him. It was the voice of his wife
who, with womanly tact, replied:
"Yes, darling, she went away over
an hour ago. But here is our good
friend, Mrs. Halls, whom lam sure
you want to meet."

Salting Farm Animals
Mo(>t farmers fully realize the im
portance of salt to the farm ani
mals, but they too often forget to
supply it at the proper time and in
;>roper quantities. Possibly sheep
dtould be treated a little more cau
.ously than other aniro?js in this
aspect, and small quantities doled
ut to them daily. The other farm
mimais can safely be trusted with
i lump of salt in the manger to
vhich they may have free access.
Even the swine will do better if a
?ump of rock salt is put in the cor
ner of the trough, although it is
usually the better plan with them
to season the slop given them with
:nore or less salt. This is also the
lier plan of furnishing salt to
'owls-putting it in the mash each
day, but in small quantities-just
about as much as the housewife
would use in seasoning a mixed dish
'or the home table. Don't forget,
owever, that salt creates thirst,
?;d that animals freely salted must
. given clean fresh water in abun
tnce if thesalt is to be of benefit?
to them.-bouthern Cultivator.
