Last Sunday night between nine and
ten o'clock the barn and stables of Mr.
J. L. Milam. a farmer residing five
miles south east of the city, were com

and a quantity of fodder and other pro
vender. Mr. Milam estimates his loss
at $1,000 to $1,200 on which there is
$640 insurance in the Carolina Mutual
Insurance company of Spartanburg.
Tho fire had made considerable head
way when discovered by Mr. Milam,
too far to be extinguished by the means
at his disposal, and his efforts were di

which attempt he was seriously burned
:ibout, his face, neck and hands, ilia
horse and six head of cattle were thus

Under Auspices of Laurens Cotton Mill
Management"-Will be Put on in Oct.
The management of the Laurens Cot
ton Mills have arranged a Lyceum
Course for this Fall and Winter, the at
tractions to be given in the Auditorium
of the Laurens Cotton Mill School build
ing.The Course is primarily fortho ben
efit of the Mill village, but the co-opera
tion of the city and surrounding county
is desired and solicited.
The Course will be equal to any pro?
viously given in Laurens and the price
of Season tickets will be $2:00 instead
of $.'}.00 as heretofore for two tickets.
The price is given thus low for the pur
pose of putting the Course within the
reach of a greater number of persons
and the additional number of sales is
expected to make up for the difference
in price. The school auditorium will
seal 100 person* and is ideal, for such
purposes. The attractions are:
Dr. Frank Dixon, for October.
S. M. Spedon, for November.
Montauk Ladies Quartette, for De
E. Maro & Co., for February.
Southern Trio & Mart King, for

ability and of wide reputation and no
one in Laurens should fail to take
advantage of the opportunity to see
and hear them.

New Oi leans Fever Situation.
Cool weather had a depressing effect
on the yellow fever situation in New
Orleans through Sunday and Monday,
Ihough the Federal authorities seem to
have a firm grip on conditions. This is
the period which is usually the most
critical in fever epidemics, but there iB
no indication that those in charge will
lose control. The medical forces are
succeeding well in the treatment of
cases reported promptly and where the
patients follow the advice of the doctors.
The majority of the deaths appear to
be confined to the foreign population.
Tho whole number of deaths up to
Monday night, 260; total number of
