Persons calling for any ol above lot
On tho morning of Friday last ju6t
as the clock announced tho end of the
old your the ulurm of fire was sounded
and it was found that it had mado con
siderable progress iu tho rear of tho
store of Mr. L F. burns in the Trayn
ham A Dial block. ThU is ouo of tho
handsomest blocks iu tho city on the
public square and West of tho Court
tlouso. Mr. Burns rooni with a largo
stock of furniture and general mer
chandise valued at $8,0(30 and a vacant
rootn adjoining were consumed. Mr
Burns has $5,000 Insurance which will
hardly save him harmless. Messrs.
Traynhara <fc Dial lose about 87,500 on
their building which Is covered by In
surance. Messrs. Davis A Roper occu
pied an adjoining building on the
South und only separated by a wall,
which being in greut jeopardy, their
splendid stock of clothing, hats and
shoes was removed with incalcubaLlo'
damage. Their loss is- very heavy, but
It is understood that their insurance is
considerable. We hope for an early
adjustment of matters and that these
enterprising business men of the city
will soon be supplying the wants of
their great body of customers The
Mendel la Hotel was ill great danger
?and (.'apt. Clarke, the occupant Buffers
a small loss from the removal of furni
ture. Ho Is Insured. Dr. II E. Martin,
the owner, is also injured, while tho
injury to the building is not serious.?
Duly by the greatest efforts and skil
ful work of the liremen, white and
colored, was a disastrous conflagration
avoided. To Mr. ,J. T. Crews, head of
the (Ire department and Chief of Po
lice LnilgSton, much credit is due. The
male population of the city was largely
in evidence at tho lire.
150 Pooplo Leave Hnrlsvillc for
The Ilartsvillo Messenger has the
following account of the Darlington
pooplo who reached here hist week to
take places in our cotton mill. Lt will
be noted as to the high character given
them, at their old home:
A BCOUO was witnessed at the Elarts
ville depot yesterday morning that
was never witnessed lu re before?that
of 150 people (possibly more) leaving
to make their homes in another por
tion of the Stato.
Last week we mentioned the fact
that Mr. W. 10 . Lucas, president of the
1,aureus Cotton Mills, was in town?
He remained here only one day and
two nights but it was long enough for
the faet to be made public that he
wanted a number of respectable fami
lies to move to Laurons to take posi
tions in the cotton mill. The news
spread and applications were received
for places from all directions. Ml*. T.
0. Lucas took the inattor in hand and
soon arranged to take thooperatives
to Laurons in a special ear and at re
duced prices Yesterday morning it
was found that ono ear would not hold*
the crowd hut there was ample room
in the regular passougcrcar and not
iess than 150 persons left, bound for
Laurcns. The special car took its oc
cupants through to Laurons without
any eh tin go.
Among those who went wore quite a
number of honorable, hard working
people and we trust that their venture
ma)'prove both pleasant and profita
ble. It i.'j quite probable thai othor
families from this seotlon will moyo to
Laurens for the purpose of working in
tho largo cotton mill there.

very udvuu in their curriculum,
that a teach ' almost any kind will

a teacher w i not thoroughly posted
on euch ancory branch which ho
undertakes each, can only do his
work in a I handed way, and not
oidy wastes) parents' money, but
likewise tin ldrens' time. There is
an old ra which reads: "Any
