A Boiler Explodes Killing
Twenty-Six People and
Detroit, Nov. 27.-Twenty six
men are dead, five of them uni
dentified and so terribly burned
and blackened that identification
is almost impossible, and twenty
four of the men are lying in the
various hospitals in the city suff
ering from terrible cuts and burns
and other injuries, all results of
the explosion of one of the boilers
in the Penperthy Injector com
pany's large plant at the center
of Abbott street and Brooklyn
avenve, at 9:30 o'clock yesterday
The awful crash came without
the slightest warning. Those in
the front building said it seemed
like the concussion of an immense
cannon. The floors and roofof
the rear building bulged upward
and then cashed down with their
heavy loads of machinery and
foundry apparatus. Walls,roofs
and all dropped into a shapeless
mass aof debris. Windows in
houses for a block around were
broken by the concussionand fly
ing bricks filled the neighboring
yards. A dense cloud of dust
arose and as it settled and was
succeeded by dense clouds of
smoke and steam,agonizing cries
began to come from the heap of
tangled wood, metal and brick.

The Gentry Show.
The Gentry pony and dog show
arrived yesterday morning, and
our citizens. especially the small
boys and girls, were in high
spirits. The afternoon and night
performances were largely at
tended. There is always some
thing in the Gentry exhibitions
that the public never get tired of.
It is simply wonderful how hu
man genius can train the dogs,
ponies, etc., in such a way as to
make one feel as though a human
being was performing. Take the
whole performance as a whole, it
was pronounced by all a grand
WORTHY OF CONSIDERATION. .
The Raising of Flax Seed Will Get
S. L. Cary is in receipt of the
following, which is self explan
atory, and well worthy of perusal:
Illinois Central Railroad Co.,
Chicago, Ill., Oct. 31, '01. 4
Mr. S. L. Cary, Jennings, La.
Dear Sir-I met your son at
Memphis about three weeks ago,
and told him that I was then re
turning from a trip over this
railroad, stopping at different
points to induce some planters
and farmers to put in an experi
mental crop of India flax seed,
which I have discovered can be
produced in the Southern lati
tude only as a winter growing
crop, sown say up to Nov. 15th.
An experiment was made some
time ago at Starkville, Miss., 0
agricultural college, resulting in
producing the seed in its original i
purity, and about 18 bushels per
acre-something that unpreco
dented in cultivation of foreign '
I have been to Lake Charles h
and got Prof. A. Thomson to take
three bushels, and your son told n
me to send you a sack, that you
would assist in the experiment,
which I am propagating over the
South this season-on our rail
roads, the Southern Railway and 0
Southwest Louisiana. Assistant
Freight Agent, Mr. Fay, of the "
Southern Pacific railroad said he e
would send it to you and Mr. 0
Thomson free of charges, as we
deliver it to Southern Pacific at h
New Orleans, and the seed is a
donated by Mr. F. W. Rockwell,
manager National Lead Co., Chi
cago, with the only condition
that same amount shall be re- c
turned to him from resultant s
crop, and he will take crop at T
Chicago market prices, unless a
you prefer to retain the seed for it
replanting the next season on e
more extended scale.
Mr. Thomson of Lake Charles, d
said he thought the raising of
flax seed as interval crop would C
clean out the red rice, which is
proving somewhat detrimental «
to you growers. S
India flax seed is the richest in S
linseed oil of all tiax seed, is
grown only in India and used
only in England, but when India
has her frequent recurring C
droughts there is none raised. n
But in the Southern States of -
United States,there is no drought s
and this will prove a sure crop, b
sown in rotation of other crops. s
You will readily see what a great
thing this will be for the South. r
Yours truly, c
J. G. PlmRTT. a
Homes in The South.
There was never a more oppor- r
tune time or season to reiterate C
the wonderful advantages pos
sessed by the south or to pro
claim its more wounderful possi- t
blities. Now that storms aret
ravaging its coasts, snow drift
ing down, and blizzards freezing
the very marrow of the bones,the
north casts a longing eye at the
flower-laden south. Already itsi
people are arriving and as they
come they break into chants of
rapture. Every portion of thei
southern states is receiving at
tention, and Calcasieu, the
beauty spot of Louisiana, is get
ting her portion. But her por
tion is a large one and it is our
bounden duty to see that she is
properly advertised. Her broad I
bosom can maintain many thous- 1
ands. Everyone who comes
bringing with him industry,
morals and health is welcome.
If he also brings wealth, he is
still welcome, but let him come
with the three first named, and
this land, blessed by the Creator,
* will give to him the fourth.
Admiral Schley and Wife
Visit Philadelphia and
Philadelphia, Pa., Nov. 27.
Rear Admiral Schley,who with
Mrs Schley, arrived here yester
day to remain until tomorrow as
the guest of Colonel A. K. Mc
Clure, was the center of attrac
tion at the Broad street station
of the Pennsylvania road when
the Washington express rolled
into the train shed. More than
a thousand persons were there
to cheer the ad mire! when he
stepped from the train and it
was with much difficulty that the
police opened a passage way for
him to leave the station. Last
night the admiral, Mrs. Schley
and party occupied a box at the
Chestnut Street opera house as
the guest of Sir Henry Irving,
who appeared in the "Merchant
The cro(wd at the opera, house
was one of the greatest ever
present in the place, hundreds
of persons being turned away
long before the curtain rose, it
having become known that the
admiral would attend the play.
He was enthusiastically greeted.

The Big Store Opening.
Carloads of goods are being re
ceived and un!pac!ked by tihe big
new store of A\. D. \cFarlain.
A reporter of the RE tco I was
shown thi'on gh the new store
building this morning and was
surprised to see to what extent
Mr. McFarlain had gone to ar
range things conveniently for his
customers. The grocery depart
memrt will be open tomorrow
morning. A large stock of dry
goods are enrouto and will be
ready for the public's inspection
early next week.
A Good Suggestion.
Mayor Sweet has suggested
that owners of lots in tlhe ceme
tery should cut the grass and
weeds from same and rake up
and burn it. Care should be
taken that the tire does not
spread. If everybody who is
interested will assist in this mat
ter, the cemoetery can be greatly
improved in appLiearance. This
is something that all should take
