concerned tnoy could go to the dovil.
General Lewis states in substance
that ho was present and that the most
that Mr. Mackey said was that If there
were such persons in tlie church they
should give up their infidelity or quit
the church; that a nolo from anyono
to hhu within tho next ten davs ask

the rolls would meet with a prompt re
spouse. Your reporter was not pres
ent, and ho Is not prepared to say
whether the Examiner quoted Mr.
Mackey correctly or not, but we have
heard good and truthful men say that
the Examiner did quote him correctly
and that ho classed men holding such
views with Judas, and said in sub
stance that the sooner they went to
their own place the better.

afternoon a thin column of smoke was
noticed arising on tho southern side of
the building, and a moment later tlio
flames rushed upwards. The engines
turned out promptly, but the sand
holes and bail place retarded progress.
When they arrived tho pavlllion was
anittss of whirling smoke and blaze,
and several buildings opposite ami
along side had been sucked into the
spreading conflagration. IRobcrt

been asleep In the tower and seemed
dazed at the danger. Three times the
