At the Opening, Tuesday, 9:30.
Long before the hour for the great
opening at the Ameriean Cash Pur
chasing Co's. store there was a
large crowd waiting for the doors to
be opened, notwithstanding the cold
wind; and many a woman had cold
feet that day-,-whieh no doubt made
some of them fuss at their husbands
that night, on general principles.
The band played, and the crowd
waited on h - hard pavement and in
the chilly air; waited a little more
patiently than many of them would
have waited at a comfortable depot
on a late train, (such is hnman na
ture when there is hope of getting
something for nothing, or much for
little); wited like new-comers in
Okl'ahoma for the rush on lots. The.
whites 3rutered at one door and the
blacks at another, but inside there
was a general blending of colors and
other ingredients that go to make up
stich a close mixture. There was
pulling and pushing and jostling and
fuming and fretting. Seventy-five
clerks found difficulty in supplying
the eager demands of the hungry
multitude; the squeezing iass of
surging humanity, with suppressed
profanity on the part of a number,
found it hard to get their individual I
wants supplied. There were too
many ludicrous inicidnts to mention.
Twenty. minutes after the doors
were opened Tuesday morning they
had to be locked and were not open
ed again on the front until five in
the afternoon. The storerwaserowded
by entering from the back door and
a. long counter was placed in the va
'cant lot- in the rear of the store and
manliy customers were served fromi it.
IQnite a n'umber of'railroad fares
were refunded showing 1dat people

Negro Child Burned to Deathm.
On Monday afternioon, between
four and five o 'clock, a little' negro- 4
girl came to 'her death by seeidental
burning, near Mr. Jim Wyse's place,
on the Holly Ferry road, about sev
enteen mriles from .the court house.
It is the same old story--parents 3
leaving children alone in the house
with fire. Will Monts and his wife
left. their three smal.1 children to play
near the fire if they wanted to. There
was no reason why :: three-year-old
child, among other irresponsible chil
dren, shouild not play .dangerously
near the fire, when it had the chance. ]
Conseque.ntly and as a ' matter of'
course, Lucile Monts, thr'ee years
old, was caught in S'e flames and
burned to death w~e assistance
could possibly be rendered, although
her five-year-old sister .had presence (
of mind to do what she could, by
throwing water on the burning child
and calling to a negro woman pass
ing at the time; but it was too late
for help-tehe child was dead.
Word got to Coroner Felker Tues
day morning early and ini a halfl
hour after hearing ? the accident he
~started for the scene. After investi
gating, and speaking with the promi
nent men of the community, Mr.
Felker decided that an inquIest was
unnecessary, as it was clearly evia.
