ONE DEAD AND
Quick and Terrible Punish
ment for Thieves.
A better trnp could not have
been laid than the two colored
boys got themselves Into Saturday
morning when they tried to steal
a bucket of alcohol from the lab-
, oratory at M. V. C.
It seems they broke Into t)ie
main college building through an
east window about I a. in. that
morning and started away from
the laboratory but as it Was dark
they used matches to light their
way. In this manner their alcohol
became Ignited. Their clothing
must have been full of alcohol ns
as they Were set on fire and In or
der to save themselves left their
burning clothes behind them and
ran for home.
Fortunately W. F.McDanlels, who
has charge of the buildings, came
along about this time nnd seeing
the fire summoned the dormitory
Htudents to his assistance and with
the hose In the building soon had
the fire under way without serious
damage, but it Was a narrow es
cape for the beautiful building.
Mr. McDanlcls soon found a clew
to the fire when a doctor was tel
ephoned for to come to look after
several boys who were badly burn
ed. This told the whole story.
Everett Fields, one of the boys
died Monday morning after some
terrible suffering. He was about
18 years old and a son of Mrs.
(leorge Fields of near the college.
His reputation was not a good or.e.
His remains were laid to rest In
