Saturday morning at about 4:80
o’olook telephone bells began te
ring and in answering them in
formation was received that the
Gold Knob school house was on
dre. H. J. Brown, who live* near
the school house was awakened
about 4:80 to fiud the primary
department almost consumed by
fire which soon spread to the
principal’s room. Mr. Brown
ran to a neighbors honse for help
hut when the school house was
reached the wnole building was
enveloped in dimes. The build
ing was a two-room structure and
:aused a large dre which oould be
plainly seen for several miles.
The sohool was being successfully
taught by Miss Mary Ljerly as
principal avd Miss Mollie Hols
bouser assistant. Just how the
dre originated may nsvei be learn
ad. Miss Holehouser had had no
dre in her room since noon Friday
and had always used every pre
caution for the safety of the
building. The primary oiasens
were in Mias Lyerly’s room ftom
3 o’clock on Friday evening. The
supposition is that tome one, pos
sibly a traveler, who had encount
ered a bad rainy night had taken
refnge and built a fire which

A new library had been installed
last year and on November 18th
of this year 82 patened steel desks
had been installed with an out
lay of $100. It is estimated that
between $50 and $75 worth of
school books were lost by the chil
dren, some lost all of their books.
There was $850 insurance whioh
will oover about half the loss.
On Saturday night a meeting of
the patrons of the district was
held and plans were laid for the
ereotion of another, better and
larger building near the present
sits. John A. Lyerly donated an
acre to the one P. C. Barger had
giren whioh will add much to the
rohool property, Plans and spe
cifications are now under consid
eration and it is hoped that by
February 1st, the building will
be ready for use. The flag and
Bible, which was presented by the
Jr; O. U. A M. a few years ago,
wero both lost in the ffre. It was
pathetic to see the little ohiidren
crying for their books and talking
about their school house and their

Last Monday, December 13th,
one of the saddest tnd most dis
tressing eooidenti occurred that
has happened for some time in
this vicinity, when Mrs, Julian
Troutman burned to deatb. Just
haw the acoident occurred will
probably never be known, as Mis.
Troutman lived alone ai d was
anbjeot to some kind of spells, it
is thought she might have bad one
of these spells and fell in the fire.
The body was found by a n igh
bor, Mrs. Mettie Troutman, who
ran as fast at she ocu.d to let it
he known. Her son-in-law, G. U.
8 fiord, telephoned the nearest
neighbors and went to the s ene at
onoe. Mrs. Troutman’s body lay
on the baok porch, partly in the
kitchen door, with her clothing
about all burned off. Mr. Sifford
discovered that the e was a con
siderable amount of smoke in the
house. About the time Johu D
V Deal arrived aud these two
went iu aud it was found that a
piece of oltthiug lay on the floor
burning, the door also caught
from this and a small hole was
burned iu the floor. From all in
dications Mrs. Troutman must
have fallen iu the fire and the
flames oatobing her clothiug
scrambled out aud drug herseif to
the back porch where she kept a
water bocket. It is thought that
by the time she retched the porch
death olaimed her as a victim
The faneral service was held at
Organ Church on lueiday by Rev.
R R. Sowers. Mis. Troutman
was 77 years old aud leaves a host
of relatives and friends to mourn
her loss.
Last Wednesday eveuing. De
cember 15th, Miss Myrtle Brown
of near Shaping’s Roller Mills,
aud D W. Barger, of Salisbury,
were happily married at the home
of the bride. The wedding was
quite a surprise to many of their
friendi as it was a quiet affair
and only a few of their closest
friends aLd relatives were present.
Rev. R. R. Sowers performed the
ceremony, We wish them a long
and happy life.

After Four Years of Discouraging
Conditions, Mrs. BuDock Gave
Up in Despair. Husband
Came to Rescue.
Catron, Ky.—In an interesting letter
from this place, Mrs. Bettie Bullock
writes as follows: “I suffered for four
years, with womanly troubles, and during
this time, 1 could only sit up for a little
while, and could not walk anywhere at
all. At times, 1 would have severe pains
in my left side.
The doctor was called in, and his treat
ment relieved me for a while, but I was
soon confined to my bed again. After
that, nothing seemed to do me any good.
I had gotten so weak I could not stand,
and 1 gave up in despair.
At last, my husband got me a bottle of !
Cardui, the woman’s tonic, and I com
menced taking it. From the very firsti
dose, 1 could tell it was helping me. Ij
can now walk two miles without its
tiring me, and am doing all my work.”
If you are all run down from womanly !
troubles, don’t give up in despair. Try
Cardui, the woman’s tonic. It has helped
more than a million women, in its 50
years of continuous success, and should
surely help you, too. Your druggist has
sold Cardui for years. He knows what
it will do. Ask him. He will recom
mend it Begin taking Cardui today.
