On Tuesday night of last week
about midnight the store at Silver be

Champs was destroyed by fire. M1r.
David Lide was sleeping in the build- I
ing and he barely had time to get out
of the burning building before the
roof fell in. Nothing from the store
was saved. The DesChamps brothers
usually carried about a $2,500 stock i
and their stock was quite full when
the fire occurred. The building be
longed to 3Mrs. M. C. Briggs, and wsi
insured for $150 and the stock was in
sured fot $1,250. both policies in the
Nettlcs agency. The origin of t he fre
is believed to have b-een !e!endi ry
from the fact that th 'se arriving a the
,. place tirs discovered a door which
had the appearanCe of having been
broken open. If it was an incendiary
te, Iobbery was the object. This is
the secoend lire at Silver recently. A
short time ago a comparatively new
- dwelling house belonging to Mrs.
Briggs was burned, and some time
prior to that a platform scale belong
ing to MIr. T. B Owens was set on fire
and destroyed. If all of this mischief
is the work of fire bugs a little detect-.
ive work- would not be amiss.

Piedmont was the scene Wednesday 2
of an unprecedented event and a very
decided sensation. The town is I
blessed with sevetal lively boys who
have at various times earned substan
tial compensation by the disttibution
in the town of free samples of various t
wares bestowed for advertising pur- i
noses. A commercial traveler.repre-I
senting a large clothing house and
carrying an extensive assortment of
excess baggage made his first visit
there Tuesday night and next morn
ing encountered two of the bright1
young sample dispensers look-ing for
a job. A bargain was struck and he1
gave the boys a large number of pairs
of trousers, in structing them to carry1
those samples to stores where he in
tended to visit. The boys slightlyj
misunderstood instructions. They
gathered up all the pairs of breeches
they could carry and proceeded to
distribute them zealously andl con
scientiouisly, one pair to each family.
The P'iedmiont peoiple thought some
new kind of millennium or sp.ecial
variation of Leo had arrivetd. Attract
ed to their doors by knocks, they were
astonished and delighted by having
trousers of the latest designs and bcst
materials handed to them. The boys
were impartial. They distributed the
articles as they camne. A plaid loud
enough to cause deafness might be
left with a Baptist ergyman and tihe
soberest black might be bestowed
upon the fanciest of the mle~i popuila
t ton, a fat, short mnan might receive a
pair intended for. T he long andl lean
and a citizen of 1:2> pounds might -be
the astonished recipient of at waist

went. No discritination was made
against widows. For each family
tnere wvas a pair of trous rs regardless
of age, sex, shape or conditions.
Tuere were some hits and some mis

It is Time for Business
The fact that there was not a quc
-um of Democrats present at th
pening of Congress after th
)bristmas holidays was. far fror
reditable to the party. It was bay
ough to have sudh a recess brea;
nto so important a session at it
rery beginning, but it is ver
nuch worse to have mein
ers delaying their return so a
o have'members delaying their re
urn so as to prevent the carrying o
f public business when the holiday
re at an end. This is no time for de
y. The people want action, an
a hey want prompt and intelligent ant
atriotic action along the lines map
ed out in the Marty platform.
The people want to see the tariff re
rm bill passed without unnecessar:
elay. The debate has been elabor
te and exhaustive'all over the countr;
r the past four years. The debat
Congress will not charge the publi
ind. They are ready to try the ex
~eriment of tariff reform. If it is
ilure it can be rectified after a fai
ial has been had ; but the people ar
ady to accept the~ responsibity for
ir trial of the policy, and the soone
is inaugurated and the policy of th
ountry is settled the better it wil
e for everybody. It is not the fear o
rif reform that is paralyzing busi
iess, but it is uncertainty as to th
tent to wnish it will go. . The busi
ess men of this country can adjus
eir business to any settled condi
ons; but nobody wants to invest il
n enterprise to-day the outlook fo
'hieh mazy be entirely changed in
w months. it is not so much wha
~ongress will do as that it shall pro
eedl promplltly to do something. Tb
ecple are eager to get asettledpolicy
hauncey Depew is quoted as saying
"As soon as it is decided in 189
~-hat-vill be the policy of the Govern
ent on the tariff there will be an imf
riediate and universal resumption C

"The enormous accumulation of ut

rove their earnings.
"The year 1894 will certainly be al
normous improvement on 1893, be
'ause this country can not be key
tanding still nor the paC of its prc
~ress long diminished."
We endorse all that is said by M'
)epew, buit go a step fum ther and de
lare that these things will comet

es in -the tariff. The people are cont

oats, hogs, watches, organs and p:
nos, buggies, wagons and carriage:-.
ogs, merchandise, machinery, mo::
ys, notes and accounts, (above i;s
ebtedness) furniture, &c., which wi
save the taxpayer time, and enable
the assessor to progress in tjie work.
Taxpayers return what they own~
n the first day of January, 1894.
All property, both real, and pe

Every male citizen between tL

All returns that are made after tLe
wentieth day of February will have'
a )enalty of .50 per cent. added there:
to, unless prevented by sickness .
