As the royal automobile reached a

archduke and princess.

At the town ball the burgomaster
began the customary address, but the
archduke sharply interrupted and
"Herr Burgomaster, we have come
here to pay you a visit and bombs

together an amazing Indignity."
After a pause, the archduke said:
"Now you may speak."
On leaving the 'hall, the archduke
aiid his wife announced their Inten

Dight by a tire 'that caused an esti- J

sand buildings were destroyed, in
cluding'a score of manufacturing es

the 4 5,000 residents homeless.
The fire originated in the Korn

the city, about 2 o'clock this after
noon abd swept through the shoe
and leather manufacturing district,

path two miles long and more than,

Burning embers, carried by a ?

The oil tanks blew up with a terrific
report ?nd showers of sparks fell
threateningly on a part of the town

checked . after it had destroyed the
oil company's plant and 13 houses.
When the flames were believed to

landmonks had escaped destruction.
These included the Peabody Museum.

where. Nathaniel Hawthorne did
much Ofj his literary work, and the
"House pT the Seven Cables," made
famous Ly the novelist.
Sevenal buildings were dynamited
and laURto-nlght lt looked as though
the fire^had been checked. No fatal
ities had been reported up to mid
night, but in the confusion it was
impossible io estimate the casual
ties. Some 5 0 Injured persons were
removed to hospitals.
Thousands of homeless were
camped im Salem common ^to-night

The great destruction was due to
poor vwater pressure.
Late to-night fire brands carried
into the business section started a
second tire at North street. A little
later a tank of the Standard Oil
Company in the extreme northwest
of the city was ablaze and presently
a third fire was leveling the build

The burned buildings include the
plants of a score ot manufacturing
companies, among them the big fac
tory of the Naumkeag Cotton Mills,
twice as many lins!ness places, St.
Joseph's Roman Catholic church, re- ?
cently erected at a cost of a quarter
of a million dollars, the orphan asy

and tenement buildings. Among
these residences were colonial houses

A determined effort was made to
stop thc fire at the Posion & Maine
railroad station close to the center
of the city. Several garages were
dynamited after a tower in the rail
road yard had burnell. The entire
district occupied by the Italian and
Creek colonies was devastated. Most
of the 2,000 persons who hud homes
In that district were housed tempo
rarily at the Y. M. C. A. building,
the State armory, police station ami
other public buildings.
The blaze was started by an un

the Korn Leather Company.
At the start the water pressure
was low and when the light had be

the firemen virtually helpless. Mean

sent to nearby cities and an enorm

cities sent apparatus and details of

KEEP CULTIVATING SHALLOW.
No Time Now U> i^uit Because Sen

Walhalla, June 30.-Brother Far
mer: This is a very unusual year.
While there are a few crops that
look good, the most of them are very
small and irregular. Where the
crops got up In time, in many in
stances tibey are being "laid by."
This is to your loss, if cultivation
will produce a stalk there is no ques
tion but that it will produce fruit.
I see corn "laid by" with a half
shovel and sowed to peas in the
northern part of the county. Now
the sowing of peas is the thing to
do, bet you have cut off the yield
hal." by quitting the corn so soon and
leavl ig it in that condition. I have
laug'it frequent but shallow cultiva
tion from the very start. Continue
to cultivate frequently, but shallow,
until silking -more especially in a
rt ry season.
Sow forage? crops; plant corn,
molasses cane, peas, turnips-any
thing lo eat or to feed the animal
I am planning a large acreage of
dovers and grasses this season. I

have been approved by the govern
ment at a reasonable Uguie, al
though tin' price ls advancing very
rapidl.v. I can get lime f. o. h. Wal

ton. I feel quite sure that all par
lies who want seed and expect me
to get them would do the right thing
to make the necessary arrangements
it an early date, for prices on these
?eed will advance very fast.
We must hope for a brighter day,

Was Made Yesterday.
Ten years ago to-day (July I.
1904.) Oeoneo county floated a bond

.etlrable In three installments of
M 5.000 eaeh at ten-year intervals,

>f f? per cent per annum, payable
;emi-annually. Tho first ten-year
teriod was completed yesterday, and
he county oflleinls mailed out a
?heck covering the first payment on
irincipai ($16,000.) and interest for
lix months, up to .lune 30, 1914. On

Up to the present time tho Inter
?st on thu total bond issue has been

There may be many who do not

lt will be recalled by all that some
years ago Oeonee suffered great loss
by reason of the freshets, when prac
tically every bridge in the county of
any consequence was swept av: y.'
These bad to be rebuilt, and this I n
usual expenditure was called for at
a time when tibe county was already
in debt. Hence lt was deemed ex

by issuing bonds in a sum sufficient
to pay off all claims with the pro~
