A BROOKLYN RESIDENCE BURNED.
The Hume of Dr. Lucas Swept Away by
Early Morning Flro.
At five o'clock Monday morn
ing the residence of Dr. T. C.
Lucas, located on East Main
Street, was destroyed by fire, to
gether with all the household
furnishings valued at $2,000, on
which, it is understood, there
was $1,000 insurance. The house,
the property of the Laurens Cot
ton Mill Company, was worth
about $2,000 and was insured.
Dr. Lucas was the only occu
pant of the house Sunday night,
Mrs. Lucas and their little daugh
ter being absent in Columbia, vis
iting friends. When he was
aroused the whole top of the
building was in flames and fire
was falling through the ceiling in
some of the apartment! It is a
mystery how the fire originated
as there had been no fire in any
of the rooms except the doctor's
sleeping apartments for two weeks
The alarm was promptly rung
in and the fire department re
sponded with all possible haste,
but the fire had made such head
way it was beyond control when
the laddies reached the scene.

THE DOWNFALL OF POLAND
By Thomas Campbell
IN October. 1793, tbo third and final partition of Poland among Prussia,
Russia and Austria took place This event wiped out i'olnn I us a sep?
ainte notion. Heforo thin. In October, it:m. ibo Poles under Kosclusko
wer? totally defeated by the combined Itusslnn und Prussian forces,
tbo patriot lender bolng wounded and captured. Afior two years' lm
prlsoiimont ho wan released by the lOmparor Paul, who offered him his
sword, which Kosclusko refused, baying "ho hud no need of a sword,
slnco ho had no longer a country."
SACRED Truth! thy triumph censed a while,
And Hope, thy slater, censed with thee to smile,
When leagued Oppression poured to Northern wars
Itoi- whiskered pandours and her fierce hussars,
Waved her drend standard to the breeze of morn,
Pealed her loud drum, and twanged her trumpet horn; j*
Tumultuous horror brooded o'er her van, $
Presuglug wrath to Poland?and to man!
Warsaw's last champion, from her height surveyed,
Wido o'er the Holds, a waste of ruin laid;
"O Heaven!" he cried, "my bleeding country save!
Is there no hand on high to shield the br/.?
Yet, though destruction sweep these lovely plains,
Rise, fellow men! our country yet remains!
iBy that dread name, we wave the sword on high*
And swear for her to live?with her to die!"
'He said, and on the rampart heights arrayed
His trusty warriors, few, but undismayed;
Firm-paced and slow, a horrid front they form,
Still as tbo breeze, but dreadful ns the storm;
Low murmuring sounds along their banners lty,
Revenge or death?the watchword and reply;
Then pealed the notes, omnipotent to charm,
And the loud tocsin tolled their last alnrm.
In vain, alas! in vain, ye gallant few!
From rank to rank, your volleyed thunder flcwl
O, bloodieBt picture In tbo book of time,
Sarmatia foil, unwept, without a crime;
Found not a generous friend, a pitying foe,
Strength iu her arms, nor mercy in her woel
Dropped from her nerveless grasp the shattered spear,
Closed her bright eye, and curbed her high career;
Hope, for a season, bade the world farewell,
And Freedom shrieked?as Kosclusko foil!

On the afternoon of November
3rd, 1904, just before the slanting
rays of the setting sun was hid
behind the Western horizon,
God entered the home of Mr. and
Mrs. G. J. Lanford, near L,anford
Station and claimed as His own,
Ethel, one of their precious chil
dren, a beautiful daughter of
fourteen summers. Before she
had reached her fifteenth birth
day she had fallen by the way.
Kthel was a noble, sweet girl?
intelligent and industrious. She
was a great comfort and pleasure
to her parents and friends. "To
know her was to love her." She
was always quiet and unostenta
tious. She drew friends to her
and fastened them there with
cords of love.
She had always been so strong
and well that it is hard to realize
that she is no more. Yet, stricken
by a malignant form of typhoid
fever, which refused to yield to
medical treatment, the brittle
stem which held the precious
blossom was broke assunder and
the soul went back to the God
who gave it.
All that loving hands and
medical skill could do was done
for her, yet it availed nothing.
Her earthly career had ended?
God wanted her to live with him.
So we must not murmur nor com
plain for we know that He doeth
all things well and that some day,
sometime we'll understand why
she was taken from us, why the
bright, beautiful star that had
scarcely risen was made to set so
Amid a large concourse of sor
rowing friends and relatives, she
was laid to rest in the qiiiet ceme
tery at Lanford Baptist Church,
there to await the Resurrection
Morn. She has joined others
gone before and together they
sing in the great choir invisible,
and watch for others to come and
jojn them. , .
only gone on a little before and
now she awaits your coming to
the beautiful city, not made with
hands, eternal in the Heavens.
Some day we will meet our
friends not changed, but glori.ied.
May God bless and sustain you
The r lin Is falling where they he
But the cold, November rain
Calls not from out the gloomy
Eanh tbo lovely ones agi in.
And then 1 think of one who
In hor youthful beauty died,
The fair, meek blossom that
Grow up and faded by my side.
In the cold moUt earth we
Laid her when the forest cast the leaf,
And wo wopt tha? one so lovely
Sho.il l have a life so brief;
Yet not unmeet it was that
Ono like th?t young friends of ours
So gentle and so beautiful, should
Perish with the flowers.
