row Escape From Fire.
Fire was discovered in the office
of the brick warehouse of the Edge
field Warehouse company near the
station Friday morning about
o'clock. The alarm was given by Mr
Hamp Smith and as soon as hose
could be rushed to the building a
strong stream of water from the re
cently installed municipal water sys
tem was turned on and the fire was
extinguished without damage to the
warehouse proper in which was
stored about 1,500 bales of cotton
From the office the flames spread to
a small adjoining section of the
warehouse in which a large quantity
of seed oats and feed stuffs belong
ing to J. D. Kemp & Co., were stored
Their loss was about $4,500 with in
surance of $3,500. The owners of
the warehouse will sustain a loss to
the property of two or three thou
sand dollars, which is fully covered
There is strong suspicion that the
fire was of incendiary origin. About
4:30 o'clock persons in three differ
ern homes near by were aroused by
a noise as if some one wer? breaking
in a building, this noise being follow
ed by the sound of an automobile
being driven away from the place.
The lady who first saw the flames
and gave the alarm was awakened by
this noise and a little later saw the
fire from the window of her home
across the street from the warehouse.
Serious Results from Colds.
Colds not only cause a tremendous
financial loss but are also a serious
injury to every one, who contracts
them as they lower the vitality and
prepare the system for the more
serious diseases. It is not at all un
usual for people who have serious
lung trouble to say "I had a hard
cold last winter." Why not take
Chamberlain's Cough Remedy and
cure your cold while you can.

There never was a time when farmers needed to sow a
larger grain crop. Owing to the scarcity of labor and the
gathering of the crops, it will be impossible for mai>y farm

You can do this effectively and cheaply with a F?EDS0N.
