Big Fire at Metz. ;
A dicastrious fire occurred at
Metz last Thursday morning, ac
cording to the Mcts Times, and
destroyed and damaged proper

The G. H. Compton stock of
hardware and general merchan
dise way destroyed. J. J. Stark
owned the first floor, which was
insured for $000.
Odd Fellows' hall on the sec
ond floor was owned by the I. O.
O. F. Building Association. It
cost about $1,500. Insurance,
f.KX) on building and $100 on fix
tures. The I. O. O. F. lodge
charter, paraphernalia, books,
etc., valued at perhaps $100 was
a total loss. The charter and
paraphernalia of Metz Camp No.

was also a total loss. The char
ters of the llebekah, Royal
Neighbor and Modern Brother
hood lodges that meet in the hall
were also destroyed.
A number of buildings were
damaged by heat. Among these,
the building occupied by the
bank suffered most. The awn
ing was destroyed, glass broken
and plastering cracked.
Ain't It the Truth?
The Butler Times has this
say about fake advertising:
Merchants in a town the size
of Butler and smaller are con
stantly being worked on fake ad
vertising schemes, that never
realize a dollar to the merchant
or good to the town. Among
them is the free balloon ascen
sion to attract a crowd. We had
one in Butler Monday evening,
liberally advertised, and if it at-1
tracted a farmer or customer to
the town, no one could tell it. It
was a great treat to town kids,
and from that view was a suc
cess. When next we want to
furnish diversion for the kids,
lets don't work it in th name of
advertising. It tends to lower

Now that the country is trem
bling on the verge of what may
be the biggest telegraph strike
in its history, it might 6eem a
good thing from the view point
of the ill informed outsider, for
the industrial arbitration com
mission that has been establish
ed with the President's Peace
PriM money, to take a band in
the discussion. So little lias
been heard of this commission
since it was appointed, that
many people may need to be re
minded of its existence. Presi
dent lioosevelt was awarded a''
little less than $40,000 last year,!
as the Peace Prize from the No
bel Fund, of Sweden. This mo
ney he declined to use and turn
ed it over to a board of industrial
arbitration for the settlement of
strikes and disputes between la
bor and capital. There were
two cabinet officers, the Chief
Justice of the Supreme Court,
representatives of labor and cap
ital, and of the general public on
the board. The board has no
permanent home, not going to
the trouble of renting quarters,
but makes its headquarters, so
far as it has any, in the office of
the Secretary of Commerce and
Labor. Since it has been ap
pointed, the President has had
nothing more to do with it offi
cially. He simply furnisned the
money and the idea, both of
which were good, and left the
board to do the best it could for
the country. But the board up
up to date has done nothing.
Both the Sec'y. of Agriculture
and the Secretary of Commerce
and Labor were asked this wct?k
if they were not going to see if
they could do something with
the telegraph situation. But
they replied that it did not seem
to be a matter of enough national
importance to warrant their tak
ing a hand. If the situation is
allowed to continue and the
strike spread as it is very likely
to do, it may develop, into a situa
tion that will not only be plenty
large enough for the commission
to take notice of, but may be en
tirely too big for them to handle.
Most new men who come into
the upper branches of the gov
ernment service bring ideas with
them, and this is the case with
Second Assistant lostmaater

were two things of which the
Department stood much in m-;d, j
cither of which would make the
fortune of any inventor who sup- j
plied them. One was a simple
and inexjver.sive substitute for
rtring and the other was a sys
tem for dropping and taking up
loaded mail sacks by moving
trains. Mail pouches weighing
200 pounds are thrown o3 the
moving trains every day at sta
tions where there are no stops
for the maiL The bags are near
ly always injured by this treat
ment, and sometimes they go
under the wheels of the train and
they and the mail are utterly de
stroyed. There is a sort of hook
arrangement that is supposed
to reach out from the mail cars
and pick up empty sacks from
an arm in front of the station,
but this cannot be used at high
speeds, and even as it is, a mail
clerk occasionally gets kiiled
with it. A train going sixty
miles on hour will smash any
pick-up device that has yet been
tried. It would seem that the
only thing capable of handling a
200 pound mail bag at that speed
would be something with a buf
fer, to it like the glj-cerine piston
of a high power gun carriage.
Something satisfactory may be
invenU-d, and when it is, the ,
Potoffice will be only too glad to
try it. The string problem
would seem to be simpler, but
uses hundreds of thousands of
dollars worth of string each year
in tying np letters in the postof- i Jhe baaJ concert, ana moo&IIstat

sorts of patent ties for bundles
or. letters have been invented,
but none of them have been as
simple and speedy for fastening
and unfastening as the string.
A tie that can be quicy adjust-,
ed and unfastened is in great de-
mand, but the proper thing has.
not yet made its appearance.

A preacher came at a newspa
per man in this way: "Yoa

truth. If you did, yoa coaiJ cot
live: your newspaper wocld be a
failure." And the editor resiied:
"Yoa are right. And the minis
ter who will at all times and cn
der ail circumstances tell the
whole truth about his members,
alive or dead, will not occupy his
pulpit more than one Sundjy,
and then he will f&d it necessary
to leave town in a hurry. The
press and the pulpit go hand ia
hand with whitewash brushes
and pleasant words, migify tc s
j little virtues into big ones. The
pulpit, the pen and the grave
stones are the great saint-making
triumvirate." And the minister
went away locking thoughtful
while the editor turned to his
work and told of the surpassing
beauty cf the bride when ia
