His condition cannot be de termined. although it is thoughl.t to be decidedly grave. The facts arc about ts follows: Curry was wo!king at a brickyard at the drum used for putting up cars of dirt from the pit. It was his duty to manipulate the levei on the machine that pulled up the cars of clav. He was to do this when the signal, the ringing of a bel!. was given. While waiting for the signal he had apparently gone over to the other side from his lever, near a swiftly revolving shaft. and was playing wxith a small piece of old worn out belting, which lie had wrapped around the shaft, supposedly to see what effect it would have or to wait for it to get too hot to hold. Strav strings from the belting finally eau ht I the shaft and, in turn, caught the boy. At every revolution of the shaft the body not only struck the ground but struck a large piece of timber, which was near by. His clothes were torn entirely from his body. When the frightened hands reached him he was absolutely without a stitch of clothing on, even his shoes- being torn from his feet. One arm, the right one, was torn from the body at the wrist and was found some distance away. The same arm was broken above the elbow. Both legs were broken above the knee, and it is fear ed'that internal injuries were sus tained., Thos. E. Miller, President.

Large Increase in Some Lines in The Last Ten Years. A special Washington dispatch to the Bakimore Sun says: The fact that exports of domestic merchandise from the United States have doubled within the last 10 years, ooupled with the constant demand tfor information concerning articles in which that growth was developed, has set the experts of the Bureau of Statistics of the Department of Com meree and Labor to figuring. The re sult has been the preparation of a special table showing, in the order of magnitude. the principal factors in the export trade of the fiscal year which ended June 30 last. To this they have added, for comparative pur poses, a column showing the exporta tions of the same articles in 1896. The analysis shows that three class. es-raw cotton. provisions and iron and steel manufactures--had in 1906 attained each a total exportation of more than $100,000,000, which in 1896 but two elasses-cestton and provis ions-were entitled to that distine tion. In 1906 the articles whieb showed each an exportation of be tween $50,000,000 and $100.000,000 were five in number-copper manu factures, refined mineral oil, corn. flour and manufactures of cotton. A decade earlier, in 1S96, but two items fell into this group-refined mineral oil and flour. In the fiscal year just ended 17 arti cles or classes of articles showed each an export value of from $10,000.000 to $42,000.000-cattle, leather and its products. boards, unmanufactured to bacco, wheat, agricultural implements, oil cakes, bituminous coal, chemicals., oats, vegetable oils, timber, fruits and nuts, manufactures of wood, crria ges, scientific instruments and spirits of turpentine-while in 1896 there were but nine articles entitled to a place in this class-iron. and steel, corn, wheat, cattle, tobacco, leather, cotton manufactures, copper manu factures and boards Clothe and Feed Other Nations. Raw cotton still occupies first rank and is eiititled to the title of "King Cotton.'' whiich it has Lorne for years. Provisions3 continued to rank in see ond place. indicating that the United States is .till doing business as a storehouse that furnishes the food prodnects fo3r many other countries. Iron and steel manufactures have taken rank in third place and refined mineral oil has dropped from third place in 1S96 to fifth place in 1906. Copper manufactures have shown a notable growth, having advanced from eleventh place in 1S96 to fourth place in 1906. While flour shows an increase of $7,000,000 in the decade, its relative po sit ion among the leading articles of ransportation has changed from fourth in 1896 to seventh in 1906,'and wheat, whose exportation of $40.000, 000 gave it sixth place in 1896 has receded to thirteenth place, with a total exportation of $28,757,517 in the year just ended. Agricutural implements exported are five times as great in value as in 1896, and this large increase has ad vanced the poshion of that class from twenty-third in 1896 to fourteenth in 1906. Exports of oats, which oc cupied the thirty-first rank in 1896, quadrupled during the decade and advanced to eighteenth place last year. Cotton manufactures, while small in comparison with those of Great Britain, Germany and France, especi ally in view of our great supply of raw cotton have shown some im provement since 1896, their posi tion among our exportations having advanced from twelfth in 1896 to eighth iri 1906, and the value of their exports from $16,837,396 a decade ago to nearly $53,000,000 in the year just ended. Comparative Table of Exports. The following table shows the value of 32 leading classes of articles ex ported in 1896 and 1906 and includes 90 per cent. of the exports of last year, thus affording a ready means of tracing the elements of growth in our exports since 1896: Articles 186 1906 CO'"TON unmanu factured .. .... ...$190.056.460 $401.0:05.921 Provisions...........11.503.90 ::1t.9901,Li6 Iron ;ard stee-l manufactures . ..41.100.S77 109.9S4.955~ Copper manufac tures .. ............1!.72f.104 S22.214.171.124 Refined mme~ral oil 5.01.57 77.025.196 Corn ................37.:i6.862 62.0G1.S56 Flour .. .. ....... .e5i7 91OS Cotton manufac tures .. .. .. .. ....t3.S 24 Cattle .. .. .. ......
