Charlotte has a $25,000 Fire. Probable
Work of Incendiary.
The George A. Howell coarse
! yarn mill, at 206 East Fifth street
was burned to the ground last
night. Tne loss was estimated at
from $20,000 to $25,000 which
was fully covered by insurance.
The firefis believed to have been
of incendiary origin, matches hav
ing been discovered in the cotton
Thursday by Mr. Howell. So
certain was he that some one was
trying to burn his plhnt, that he
yesterday took out additional in
surance on his machinery and cot
ton on hand. While the plant
was well covered by insurance,
Mr. Howell’s loss in time and
loss of profits will be heavy.
The fire was discovered about
11:30 o’clock by two workmen
employed in the building. They
were engaged in one corner of the
big room making ready for to
day’s work. -Looking across the
building one of them observed a
blaze rising above the frame next
to the second breaker, Both ol
them rushed to put it out but the
fire spread like mad. Seeing
that they could do no t h i u g
of themseyes, they su m m o n
ed the fire department just out
block away.—Charlotte Observer
Feared Failure In Profession.
Philadelphia, June 22.—Fear
ing he could not succeed in his
chosen profession, Dr. Henry S,
Hutchinson, son of a prominenl
citizen of this city, committed
suicide in a field at Lansdowne,
Pa., near here, by cutting his
throat with a razor. The bodj
was found today and it is believ
ed he committed the deed a daj
or two ago. An affectionate let
ter addressed to his father was
found near the body. It is be
lieved that Dr, Hutchinson, aftei
swallowing poison, cut his throat
to make sure of his death. Dr
Hutchinson was about 35 years
of age and was graduated from
Harvard and from the medicai
department^of the University oi

The Law as to Enticing Cooks.
The following from the Con
cord Tribune will be of interest in
Statesville, and everywhere foi
that matter.
For several days past there have
been many changes in the em
ployment of cooks in this city
and for the benefit of the public i
prominent lawyer hands the fol
lowing to the Tribune, with a re
quest to publish.
“Aside from the great impro
priety involved in the act one ren
ders himself liable to the not too
severe penalty, $50 fine or 30
days imprisonment, denoun c e d
by the law for enticing a cook to
leave the employment of another.”
It might be added that- the
same law applies to employes
other than cooks.—Statesvi 11 e

A Chicken story.
After ten years of experiment
ing Clinton H. Willis, a rancher
• on the Montery road, has produc
ed a chicken that can talk. The
fowl is the sixth generation of a
cross between a parrot and a
guinea hen, and in its every char
acteristic except the lower half of
its bill and the arrangement of its
toes the bird is a chicken. The
upper half of the bill is staight
like that of the guinea hen, while
the lower part is clearly a parrot
beak. Its toes are arranged two
and two, instead of three and one,
as in the barnyard fowls. At
present the chicken’s vocabulary
is limited to “morning, chaw ter
backer, Clint,” and a swearword.

The man who does not advert
tise becanse he doesn’t know how,
onght to stop eating because he
can’t cook.
Jast how the expression “horse sense” came into use is not
known, but the meaning of the combination is good reason,
old fashion logic, simple analysis and actual truth, and the
basing of your actions upon simple*things rather than com
plex things. The man who uses “horse sense” in his trans
actions gets along tarther and faster than the man who uses
selfishness and smartness.
To be possessed of horse sense is a most valuable
asset. It is something you can use every day of your life.
“Horse sense” is really one of the things that makes
up the law of compensation. The law of compensation
itself is the quintessence of “horse sense.”
Luck is the gambling chance and “horse sense” is
the investment and security chance.
The man with “horse sense” may not go as far in a
day as the man with luck, but he will go more daj s and go
farther in the end than the lucky man.
“HORSE SENSE” is one of the most valuable things
in the business world, and it is one of the rarest things. It
is valuable beeause it is so rare
During our June Sale we expect to place within reach
of the people of Salisbury and Spencer hundreds of extra
good values, money-saving values and values that will surely
appeal to the “horse sense’’ of every good housewife and
thrifty husbandman.
NOW, TO NOT BE A MULE. Come right along, show
your “horse sense” and get you/reward.
