About half-past six o'clock Sunday night a fire was discovered in the direction of P. H. Marten's farm about half a mile from town, but be fore the alarm could be given and help reach the place Mr. Marten's house was practically gone. Only a few things were saved. The fire caught from a defecti-ve chimney and there was no insurance. Escaped an Awiul Pate. Mr. H. Haggins of Melbourne, Fla., writes, "My doctor told me I had con sumption and nothing could be done for me. I was given up to die. The offer of a free trial bottle of Dr. King's New Discovery for consump tion induced me to try it. Results were startling I am now on the road to recovery and owe all to Dr. King's New Discovery.
