today In the total destruction
of the Middlesborough Foundry aud

o'clock, and tho mammouth plant was
burned to the ground in less than two
hours. The building was erected at
a cost of 11,000.00 and was
tilled with Une Iron-working
machinery at a cost of nearly half a
million dollars. No fire protection
was provided In the building or vicinity,
and nothing could be done toward

The industry was owned and operated
by English capital and bad been running
for about fourteen months.

Gnino Oyer From Illinois Very 111
Yesterday. Had Itolatlve In
Webster County. It Is Supposed.
A strange man dropped dead last
evening at tbe restaurant of "Catfish"
Joucs.ono South Second street.
All efforts to determine his identity
beyond a question of a doubt have
been unsuccessful. It is thought,
however, that ho is J. W. Sammory,
of Webster county, Ky.
The stranger came here yesterday
and went to "Catfish" Jones' res
taurant on South Second street. Ho
said ho had been at work for Henry
Linn, of near Stringtown, 111., and
was ill. His physical condition, in
fact, was what prompted him to give
up work. He asked for a room and
was directed up a stairway, Wm. Mc
Clanc, an employe, following him up
to show him the room. The stranger
fell on tbe stairs and expired before
he could be carried down.
An inquest was heln and developed
the fact that he came to his death
from heart failure superinduced by
He had a shoe box with the name
'Jos. W. Smith, Dexter, Mo.," on
it, and in his pocket was a note-book
containing tho name of "J. W.
dated November 3rd, and
in which was an entry that the writer
was out of money and trying to get
back to his home in Webster county.
On the inside cover the words "J.W.
Sammony's Day Hook" were found.
Two other entries indicated that be
had picked forty-three pounds of cotton
for a man named Henry Frailer,
and that he had "paid John Dyn one
The nolo was torn from tlio book,
and said the writer was forced to beg
for the first time in his life, and that
he was 30 years old, and had always
tried to treat ever) body right.
Tho note said further, that he was
endeavoring to reach relatives in
Webster county, Ky , and if be ever
got there he would remain.
John Dye, who lives in Mechanics
bum. viewed the remains today for
the purpose of identifying the man,
but stated that ho did not know hiai.
Thorc is another John Dyo in Illinois,
and as that is where the man came
from, tho Dye in Illinois is doubtless
the one meant.
Coroner Nance today embalmed
tho remains and will hold them until
tho relatives of tho deceased cau be
found and heard from. He has
written oiie or two persons in Web
ster county, and is confident tbe
man's name is Sammory.
