conditions of awful desitution which
now exist in certain provinces of
China. Recurrent inundations by the
Yangtze and other rivers have de
stroyed crops and prevented the cul

man beings are now facing starvation.
An agent of the American Red Cross
who has recently traveled throughout
the famine districts reports conditions
of starvation of the most terrible and
Until peace is restored in China
and the fu.nctions of efficient govern
ment are established, these conditions
must continue, save as relieved by the
charitable efforts of other countries.
The Central China famine relief
committee has created a strong and
efficient organization with agencies
established throughout the affected
districts. The body, which comprises
in its membership Rt. Rev. Bishop F.
R. Graves, chairman; Rev E. C. Lob
enstine, secretary, and 20 or more of
the leading American, European and
Chinese merchants and missionaries
in Shanghai, will render assistance as
means may be available. Able-bodied
natives will be employed in 'repairing
dykes, canals and roads and thus en
abled to support thanselves until new
crops can be harvested.

RECORD OFFICE ON FIIRE.
Intelligent Action Probably Saved
Panic in Theatre-Did Not Delay
Columbia State, 31st.
A fire was discoveredt in the rear of
the Record office last night about 9
o'clock that might have been serious
in its consequences. .It started when
one of the largest audiences of the
year was in the Columbia theatre, and
the slightest intimation of the close
proximity of the fire, or had an alarm
been rung, in all probability a panic
would haviB started that would have
The fire was discovered by a wo
man, who gave the alarm to the po
lice station. Knowing the situation, ifI
an alarm was started, the information
was telephoned to the central fire sta
tion and company No. 1 responded.
No engines were used for fear of dis
turbing the people in the theatre. Plug
streams were thrown on the flames
and the -noiseless chemical engine was
pressed into service. It is doubtful if
but few in the theatre knew of the
closeness of the fire.
The fire started in a paper press in
he press room, which is in the rear
of the Record office on the ground floor
supposedly from a rat gnawing a
natch. The flames destroyed a large
quantity of paper, and ran up the!
elevator shaft into the composing1
room. The heat was so intense that
it melted the rubber rollers, and the
belts on the linotype machines were
warped and burned. While the flames
did little material damage, yet the
heat and the water destroyed material
a'nd property that will possibly amount
to approximately $1,000. All is fully
covered by insurance. It is not thought
that the machinery is hurt.
The full force of the Record worked
all night to put the offlee in seape, andl
it is not thought that there will be
delay, in the issuanc3 of the paper.
The patrons of the rural delivery
service in Laurens as well as New
berry are considerate and sympatbetic,
and on ocoasion show their apprecia
tion of the struggling carrier's efforts
n discharging his duty.
