Soap Caution

against using impure Toilet and Bath Soaps.
,/Vo one uses harmful soaps willingly, but
many use them unwittingly. Voa are most
((?it to get right soaps at a rel i attie drug store
---for instance, you never in your life star u
hit of genuine Castile sou/) sold anywhere hut

I (tn/, something of a crank in this mat
ter of purity, und guarantee the quality of
every soap I sell. The pri?e you will find
right, too.

David Marett Loses liy Fire.
South I nion, Oetober ll. - Last Fri

and cotton bouse ?iud their contents hy
Ibo. which was discovered botweon ii
and :'. o'clock by an aged colored mau
who happened lo be Blooping in the cot
ton house about lu feet from the barn.
The alai in was promptly e?Ven and Mr.
Maietl barely had time to get out his
hoi ses ami cattle, and in doing this was
bli-.tel ed about his hands and neel:.
lt will be remembered that the wind
was high, and everything being so dry il
was willi difficulty that his dwelling was
saved, it having caught repeatedly, and,
heine to the windward, its esi ape is eoli
sidorod almost miraculous. The woods,
perhaps 200 yards beyond the house,
took lire and were extinguished with
difficulty.

old !>. ll. (?lelil? homestead, thc dwell
lng of which was bumed several years

erected by S. s. MoJunkin in 1870, escap
ing to mark tho spot ?iud remind friends
of former days that here tho happy
(denn family-father and son-were
oiue domiciled. ?Jut Friday morning's
Conflagration has wiped out tho last
landmark, verifying the sentiment of
holy writ, the piaces that now know us
will soon know us no more forever.
Mr. Marett deservOB tho sympathy of
his friends. His loss is tho following:
ir>0 bushels cotton seed, 10 bushels
wheat, 60 gallons syrup, bushels cane
seed, $>">l> in farming tools, f,,7(>0 pounds
soed cotton, 6,000 bundles fodder, 18.000
pounds hay, *."><K) in buildings, AO gallons
canned fruit. Origin of lire unknown.
