Fire Saturday Night.
About 12.30 Saturday night a fire
alarm was sent in, which was very
quickly \responded to by both the reel
teams. Some cotton in transit in a
box car was found to be on fire, the
burning bales were soon thrown from
the car, and the fire extinguished.
Ten bales were damaged by fire and
water to the amount of $200 which
sum, however, is fully covered by in?
A Special Cotton Train.
A special train loaded with cotton
was sent out over the Southern Rail?
way Friday. The social was made
up of eighteen or twenty flats and
carried about -4, GOO bales. The ship?
ment was made by several of the local
buvers who are finding it increasingly
dirait each day to obtain prompt
shipment of the*cotton they buy. The
railroads haven't sufficient cars to
move the cotton, and for that reason
are resorting to the use of flat cars.
On each flat sent cut on the special
yesterday there was plaited a barrel
of water and a sufficient number of
bands were sent with the train to
guard the cotton against ignition by
sparks. Another precaution that was
adopted was to place tte engine at the
rear of the train.
There is an immense accumulation
of cotton at the depots and on the
weigher's platform and each day the
congestion grows greater for the re?
ceipts are up in the hundreds daily.

ges against him and set bim free on

violation of the law, however, showed
that he was not deservinp^of consider?
ation, and a3 each time bis offense was
more serions, Recorder Hurst decided
that be needed a severe lesson, so he
was sent to the gang.
