"That a considerable part of said

Man Who Did Shouting Suhl Thought
Trainmen Had Hobbed His Storo.
?Florence, Nov. 23.-Claiming that
he thought the men had attempted
to rob his storo, a merchant named
Poole shot and. probably mortally
wounded Harry G. Ritner, Atlantic
Coast Lino engineer, while he was
sitting in tho cab of his locomotive
at the station at Elrod, N. C., and
came noar wounding Charles Brock,
brakeman, several buckshot passing
through the latter's clothing. Tho
Bhooting became known hero this af
Mr. Rither was carried to a hos
pital in Fayetteville soon after ho
was wounded, and lt ls reported
hore that thoro is little hope held
out for his recovery, tho shot having
taken effect near Iiis heart. As Brock
was returning to the locomotive af
ter switching a car Into a sido track
in front of Poole's store last night,
ho hoard several shots near by. Move
wore fired as he sprang into tho cab.
One of these struck Enginoer Ritner,
who foll to the boor In front of tho
firebox of his locomotive. When the
train employ?es carried Mr. Ritner
tQ) tho depot Poolo appoared with n
shotgun in bis hand and stated that
ho had lired the shots, declaring that
Bomeono had been trying to break
into his storo, and that he thought lt
was tho engineer and brakeman.
Robbers broke Into tho depot nt
Mars Bluff last night, blow open the
iron safo and cleaned out Its con
tents, taking $5,000 in mortgages,
$500 lu Liberty bonds and about $50
In cash. The money was tho cash

Coast Lino's agency, but tho mort
gages and bonds belonged to the
agent. No trace of tho robbers could
be found by officers who investigated
the looting to-day. A pilo of ashes

Million Dollar Fire-Eighteen Build
ings at Front Royal Burn.
Front Royal, Va., Nov. 22.-Dyna
mite stopped the spread of thc lire
which threatened tho destruction of
this town yesterday, after IS build
ings bad been destroyed at an esti
mated loss of $2 25,000. For several
hours the fire fighting forces of Front
Royal, Winchester and Strasburg
fought a losing battle with the rap
idly spreading flames, being handi
capped by low water pressure and a
high wind.
Finally tho flames were checked
when a residence in the path of the
Aro was demolished by dynamite and
about the same time the wind died
down. This enabled the firemen to
make their feeble water supply effec
tive, and at nightfall the men were
still pouring water on tho embers.
Tho fire, starting In tho basemen*,
o? tho Front Royal Milling Company,
quickly enveloped tho mill and, aided
by the high wind, spread rapidly to
adjoining buildings. Soon both sides
of the principal street were in roar
ing flames, and it looked as if tho
town was doomed to destruction.
Appeals were sent out for help and
firemen from Winchester and Stras
burg responded. Aided by the new
arrivals, practically every man in the
village, and many women,?bent their
efforts toward saving their town and
to-night they were still at work to
prevent another outbreak. .
Panic-stricken women and chil
dren fled to the outlying country, car
rying with them what personal be
longings they could take. To-night
they returned to ibo homes that were
saved from tho flames. ?
The origin of the fire ha's not been
established definitely, but employees
of tho mill expressed the belief that
it was due to an explosion.
