About 7 o'clock last night a kerosene

H. Breedin, an alarm of fire was sound
ed and large numbers of people rushed
to the scene to render assistance,but be
fore many of them reached there, the
word "all over" was the welcome re

bale was examined by them. they dis
covered it was "salt packed," and they
shiped it back to Mr. Sellers who was
reimbursed for the cotton and all ex
penses by McLeod-Wilkins-King Co.
The bale was reopened at the Oil Mill
in and about 12-> pounds of salt was
aken out. The-salt had been put in be

Our National authorities are now
very much agitated over the Panama
canal questionand as nearly everything
these days becomes an epidemic, we
hope the malady will strike the mem
bers of our town council. and arouse
I them to the necessity of repairing
the canal fast being made on the street
leading to the depot known as Railroad
Avenue. There has been a great deal
of sickness in that region this year
which may be attributed to the sobbed
condition of the ground around the ar
tesian well, the matter has been report
ed tv different members of council and
attempts at patching have been made.
It is now about time that council have
this much needed work intelligently
done.as those people living in the vicin
itv of the well are taxpayers and enti
tled to conisideration,-whether they are
special favorites of council or not.

Ran Them Out. P. D. Q.
We bad hoped it would be unneces
sary to call the attention of the author
ities to a class of creatures in this town
which should be ordered to "move on,"
but we have waited patiently for some
action to be taken and as yet, so far as
we know nething has been done.
There are a number of wenches here
almost daily, they come and go, and we
ask our town authorities to relieve this
town of the presence of these strumpets
who shamelessly, diked out in finery
walk about our streets.
It has been suggested that citizens
get togetber and~ take "Dogtown" by
storm and drive these moral lepers out,
but we are opposed tolawlessness,when
we have entrusted others with the wel
fare of our affairs; these officers are
sworn to abate nuisances, and give pro
tection to taxpayers. The council em
ploy police, who, we are sure _will do
their. duty by carrying out the instruc
tions of thie council, and if they are or
dered to clean out the nasty kennel they
will do it. Order the police to run these
harlots out of town and lock them up
every time they put in appearance.
Gentlemen of the council, these ca
tures are a temptation to women, white
and colored; they walk about our
streets dr'essed in silks and fine linen,
covered with handsome jewelry, and
look prosperous without having any vis
ible means of honest support. Poor
honest women of both races who have
to toil in the kitchens or over the wash
tub. or in a factory to earn bread and
scanty clothing are confronted with the
prosperous air of these scabs of society,
and the temptation to give up honest
labor and take un the methods of these
creatures of hell'is not small. It is ofte~n
the case young men are tempted to visit
the abodes of these women,and debanch
ery and ruin follows. These creatures
are regarded nuisances and obinoxious to
society in cities,although many contend
they are a necessary evil, yet the city
authorities realize their demorahizing
influence and drive them from the prin
cipal thoroughfares and out of sight of
decent families.. ,
Members of council, what will you do
about it? Will you give the police the
rush-them-out-Order? All of you have
families and for their sakes, as well as
for the general public white and black~
these immoral carbuncles should be
scraped from the town.

of lexicographers. In a volume issued

words by actual quotations from the1
literature of a living language seems to
have lieen first put in practice by Grif

Wales, who died in 1564. It was not
till the days of I4 Johnson, 200 years
later, that a similar idea took root in
English soil. An abbreviated copy of

of this climate is the cause of it. The dispesition

form, which, if permitted to continue is likely to
get much worse. and finally offensive. For this
