Big Fire in Sumter. it
The Blanding stables were complete- a
ly gutted by fire Saturday night, every a
thing in the building being destroyed o
by the blae which was of short dura- a
tion, as it was confined to the one build
ing and there was nothing for the
flames to feed on after the feedstutts
and flooring had been burned.
Eight horses and one mule were last m
in the flames. The tire caught some- a
where near the center of the stables ks
and while it is not known what caused P
it. it was stated by Mr. Bianding that t.
it may have caught from spark from Ii
the chimney of a nearby restauraint, as W
this was the only known tire in the si
vicinity. T~he fire was discovered
shortly before 9 o'clock and in a few
minutes the whole place was a mass of
flames, the blaze h aving spread throubh
the hay and other feed stuff which was
piled ina the loft of the building. This q
-sent out a territic heat and vast, clouds e
of smoke s-i that it was impossible to h.
get into the stables and satve any of the C
animals in it. The brick walls of th.: p
fbuilding atded the tiremen in prevent- fc
ing the t-re fromn spr-eading to adjacent N:
buildings and it wm not long befor-e V
the tire w-s broua a under control. A

men had intended taking it out to the .ca

tice. The animal was bought to race
at firemau's tournaments and was a tl
handsome animal. The tiremen had b
paid $250 for it and had been offered ti
considerably more than that since they
became owners of it, but refused to

THE ROPES OF MAUI.
An Ancient Legend of the Sun From
the South Seas.
One of the most picturesque legends
connected with the solar beams Is that
told in the islands of the south Pacifie,
where sunbeams are known as "the
ropes of Maui." It is related that in
former times the sun god Ra was noi
so regular in his habits as he is today.
In fact, he caused the south sea Island
ers much annoyance by setting In the
morning or at noon or at other nop
portune times, just when his light was
needed for the daily tasks of mankind
The great hero Maui undertook tc
cure him of these erratic habits, and
the first step was to make the sun god
prisoner. This was accomplished b3
laying a series of six snares made 01
strong cocoanut fiber along the sun':
path in the sky. When the deity ner
rost from Avaiki, or the land of ghosts
the first noose encircled him, but slip
ped down and only caught his feet; the
second slipped, too, but caught the su
god's knees: the third caught around
Still Ra pressed on, scarcely ham
pered by these contrivances. Th
fourth noose tightened around hi
waist, the fifth under his arms, an,
finally the sixth and last caught hi
around the neck and almost strangle
him. Then the sun god confessed bin
self vanquished and in fear of his lif
promised Maui that he would in futur
adjust his daily journeys more in as
cordance with the comfort and convey
fence of mortal men.
Ba was then allowed to proceed a,
his way, but Maui prudently decline
to take off the ropes, which may st
be seen hanging from the sun at daw
and when he descends into the ocea
at night. Hence the islanders say, whe
they behold the beams radiating froi
the sun, "Tena to Taura a Maui"--Se

ECCENTRIC NORTH RIVER.
Curious Pranks of a Tortuous No
Westerners tell of the queer behavl

This is the North river in Massach

North river it is forty.
New Englanders aver that when t1
tide is coming in the North river ru

There are three ingredients in the

work: rosin, beeswax and tallow. The
proportions (by weight) are rosin four
parts, beeswax two parts, tallow one
part; in all, seven ounces or pounds.
They are to be melted slowly, in an
iron vessel, putting In the rosin ten
minutes or so before the beeswax and
tallow. Then all well mixed together
by much and careful' stirring.
When thoroughly mixed (in twenty
or thirty minutes) a convenient por

less than a minute-it will be cool
