Paris, lie in a critical condition in the
Good Samaritan Hospital, in Lexing
ton, and if thpy recover they will owe
their lives to the bravery and rare
presence of mind of Cash Strong, a
young farmer of the same neighbor
hood. The distressing accident occurred
yesterday morning about 10 :30 o'clock
when the Burden home was destroyed
by fire. Mr. Burden had gone to his
work of stripping tobacco a short dis
tance away from the residence and his
wife, leaving the children in the house
went to the home of a neighbor some
distance away for some milk.
Left alone in th building, the chil
dren, it is supposed, began playing in
the open grate, igniting the carpet on
the floor and the flames were rapidly
consuming the building when discover
ed. The mother, who was returning
to her home, saw the flames brust
from windows of the building, and in
the moments of her intense excite
ment and anixety for her little ones,
fainted before she reached the house.
Cash Strong who was passing, was
first attracted by the smoke issuing
from the roof and windows, and know
ing of the absence of the parents of
the children, supposed they were in
the butning building. With all haste
he hurried to the scene, reaching r
only a few minutes before the roof
fell. Hering cries from the children
wi'hin Strong bravely entered tne
bu 1 'ing and made his way through fire
and smoke to the room from which
came the cries of Ihe children. Reach
ing them he gathered them in his arms
and with great difficulty retraced his
steps to the yard, where he tore from
the little bodies the burning clothes.
Strong wa& painfully burned about the
hands and arms.
Dr. Elmer Svveatvan was summoned
and administered to the injured chil
dren, until they could be removed to
the Good Samaritan Hospital in Lex
ington. A message from that institu
tion last night as to the effect that
there was but a slight chance for the
recovery of either of the children.

James Jones Was Not Killed.
James Jones, fugitive from justice,
charged with the shooting of Sam
Custard, colored, in this city, on the
night of D-cember 10 at the livery
stable of Martin Bros , on Eighth
street, is not the same man as report
ed to have been shot to death at a
dance at Finnell, in Scott county, last
Friday night, December 23. by Claude
Griggs, and the pnlice of this city hope
within a few dajs to have the would
be slayer of Custard in custody.
Reliable information received by the
officials here follownig the killing of
the Jones in Scott county, lead them
to the belief that that man who met
his death in the dance row was a
brother of the man who is wanted
here. This information, it is said,
was received by the police from resi
dents of the Jacksonville neighbor
hood, where the Jones family reside,
and is to the effect that the man who
is being sought visited in that section
following the killing in Scott county.
Acting upon this information Chief
of Police Elgin has instituted a I
thorough search in this and other coun-!
ties and believes he has the man lo
cated. A warrant has bean issued and
sent to an adjoining county, where it
is said Jones is hiding. Chief Elgin
is momentarily expecting a message
announcing his capture.
