Two two-story frame cottages on Twenty-eight street, between Avenues C and D, were totally destroyed by fire shortly after 2 o’clock yesterday after noon. The fire originated in the building at the south end of the row and burned fiercely and rapidly until that building had been entirely consumed. The flames spread to the next one, which was unoc cupied. and had burned It almost to the ground, but the firemen proved they could do effective work. Adjoining buildings were slightly scorched and some of the furnitjire more or less dam aged while being removed. The house In which the lire originated was occupied by Mrs. Sauls, a widow, and her children. None of her furniture was saved. The houses belonged to the Elyton Hand company and were valuc-d at about $350 each and were partially insured. How the fire originated docs not seem to be known. At the time the alarm was sounded the Northside department was at anoth er fire, to which the Southside depart ment had started. Before they reached It, however, the alarm from box 135, Ave nue E and Twenty-seventh street, was sent In and the Southside department turned and went to that. It was a long run and after the arrival, of the laddies they had tc run a line of hose from Avenue C and Twenty-sixth street, over two blocks. With this they were able to hold the flames in check un til the arrival of the Northside depart ment, a few minutes later, when an addi tional stream was turned on from Ave nue C and Twenty-sixth street. With the two streams the tire was soon extin guished. The total loss was probably $800 or $1000, with about $400 or $500 insurance Another Blaze. Just before the alarm sounded from box 135 one was turned In from box 12, corner of Sixth avenue, and Twentieth street. Fire was discovered in the tin roof of Dr. A. T. Henley’s residence, but was soon put out with little or no dam age. The Northside department responded promptly to the alarm and the South side reel was on Its way there when the alarm was turned In from box 135. When Baby was Rick, we gave her Castoria.

THE COMMERCIAL CLUB Let Birmingham Build Her Own Steel Plant. A PERMANENT MINERAL Exhibit of the Exposition Display—Meeting of the Cumberland Presbyterians—Mu sical Entertainment. The Commercial club held ys regular monthly meeting yesterday afternoon, with Dr. T. M. Allen presiding in the ab sence of the president. Secretary Thompson submitted his re port on the financial condition of the club, after which the following new members elected at the last meeting were announced: Dr. J. D. S. Davis, Dr. W. E. B. Davis, Joseph R. Cook, E. N. Cullom, J. M. Cockburn, J. B. Hayden, Dr. S. L. Ledbetter, W. St. Pierre, E. Q. Smith, C. A. Merritt, Ben Meyer, James H. Hard and Arthur C. Sharpley. Secretary Thompson read tile following report of the manufacturing committee: Plan for a Steel Mill. To the Commercial Club: During the two and a half years of the existence of this club the manufacturing committee has had occasion to present to the club the important bearing of a steel plant on the future growth and prosper ity of Birmingham. It lias been shown by this committee that in so far as the mere production of raw materials were concerned, the city of Birmingham has reached a wonderful growth, but in order to reach a more wonderful development we hope to see greater advancement in the manipulation and further refinement of our raw products. After these years of waiting for some one else to come in among us and ac complish this work—a work pertaining so closely to the welfare of all classes in this city—it is believed that the wiser policy would have been to have concen trated ail energies to the task of doing this ourselves. The spectacle is pre sented to the outside world of a great city, claiming advantages for Iron pro duction over all others on the face of the globe, yet expecting others to neglect their own established interests, or per haps antagonize them, by entering what appears to them to be only an experi mental or speculative field. It Is believed that this work can be done by our own people, especially when they are brought to realize the great benefits that will re sult from It directly to ourselves. To test this possibility the following plan is submitted: L,et ail or me land companies, curjiuia tions and individuals owning acreage property in or immediately adjacent to Birmingham be approached to subscribe whatever amount of land they can be in duced to place into a company, the pur poses of which shall be the building and operating of a steel plant and rolling mill in this city. Said land to be subject to valuation by an Impartial committee and none received that does not possess a fair chance for market under reasonable conditions of activity. Instruct the real estate committee of the club to co-operate with the manufac turing committee In obtaining such sub scriptions, and as fast as obtained re port the same to the secretary of the club; and when it is deemed that a suf ficient quantity of land has been ob tained let a call be made for the formal organization of the company. With a basis of such a character it Is believed that no great trouble need be experienced to raise the needed funds, either In mon ey, subscriptions to stock, or In pledges on the property, to carry the enterprise to a successful consummation. Also let the press of the city be requested to aid in this work, together with the members of this club generally, until such a sen timent will prevail as will find some oth er plan to secure a plant If the one herein outlined should not prove feasible. In tills connection it may be well to again refer to the club’s motto: “Pat ronize home enterprises.” Incidents are of frequent occurrence where orders are sent away from Birmingham for work or articles that could be had here on equally as favorable terms, and some times for even less prices. Especially Is this the case in jobs of printing, tailor made clothing, dressmaking and milli nery, while larger manufacturers in oth er lines are expected and frequently asked to “cut prices" obtained from out side parties before they can obtain or ders. Such a spirit will not build up home enterprises, while It will render the loca tion of new ones more difficult, because existing ones ore not given proper local patronage and encouragement. The sentiment should be strongly urged and vigorously maintained to buy noth-’ ing ouislde, unless to be had on mani festly belter terms in every respect. Attention is also called to the invention of one of our citizens. Mr. C. A. Merritt, whose newly patented eldctric lamp con tains many points of great practical val ue and usefulness. It is hoped that such encouragement may be given Mr. Merritt by our citizens as will! enable him to form a company here for the manufac ture and sale of his lamp in this city. Respectfully submitted. JOSEPH BEITMAN, Chairman. Secretary Thompson moved the adop tion of the report. Secretary Thompson said the commit tee had seen several of the land compa nies, and had assurances that such a plan as suggested in the report was fea sible. He believed enough land could be secured to make the plan entirely practi cable. * nr '.Kiiinmirc uii din iai icailUCS t»U U mltted the following report: Social Features. To the Commercial Club: The undersigned special committee from the committee on social features, appointed to investigate and report on the advisability of Inaugurating some character of entertainment with a view of benefiting the club financially, having in view also the bringing together' of the members In such a manner as will tend to create a stronger interest in the work of the club, make the members bet ter acquainted and more enthusiastic in whatever will tend to benefit the town, beg leave to report as follows: 1. We suggest that Professors Boyce and Guckenberger, both of whom are members of the club, be requested to un dertake jointly an entertainment such as they are capable of arranging and carry ing into effect, which will enlist a livelier Interest in the welfare of the club by the patronage of those who can be brought together by such an entertainment as can be presented by talent second to none In the country, and at the earliest period that will suit their convenience. 2. We suggest further that all agencies or Individuals in the city who desire to see the Commercial club redouble the en ergies already put forth, and which have borne fruit, be appealed to for aid in creditable display of her resources at that exposition. 3. We suggest further that an enter tainment be given under the auspices of the social features committee on Monday evening, December 16th Instant. 4. We suggest further that this enter tainment be so arranged as that there may be two short addresses by two prom inent members of the club on "How Can the Industrial Development of Birming ham Be Best Promoted?” and that said entertainment be rendered further at tractive by such other features as the committee may decide upon. Respectful ly submitted, WM. M. LINDSAY, *f | N. F. THOMPSON, Special Committee. Tlje report was adopted. A Permanent Exhibit. The following resolutions offered by M. V. jjoseph were adopted: Whereas, The mineral exhibit in the Alabama building at the Atlanta exposi tion has elicited very> general praise, from all Hsitors to that building, and has in deed formed one of the central attrac tions to the exposition itself! and Whereas, The exposition is soon to be closed and the exhibits removed or dis posed of by the owners of the same; and Whereas, It would add greatly to the work of the Commercial club and re dound to the advantage of the entire dis trict if that exhibit could be preserved in permanent form at some central point in this city, where visitors could easily obtain an idea of the great mineral wealth of this region by its inspection; therefore be it i Resolved 1. That the thanks of the Commercial club he and ere hereby ten dered to all who have furnished these exhibits, entailing as they have much time and expense in their collection and arrangement at Atlanta, hut which they generously and patriotically contributed in order that Alabama might have a creditable of her resources at that expo sition. 2. That this club request said exhibit ors to donate such of these exhibits as can b? used for a permanent display, and for which the club may obtain transpor tation without further expense to them, for the purpose of establishing such a display in this city. 3. That the thanks of the club are also tendered to the Alabama hoard of man agers lor their praiseworthy and suc cessful work in giving to Alabama so prominent a part In the south's greatest exposition, and we urge ail of those who have not yet visited this exposition throughout Alabama to do so before it cIosps that they may thereby show their appreciation of this opportunity so fa vorably presented of bringing the re sources of this state before the outside world. Cumberland Presbyterian General Assem bly. At thp request of Rev. R. D. Wear, pastor of the Cumberland Presbyterian church, the secretary called attention to the fact that the general assembly of the Cumberland Presbyterian church of the United States would meet in this city next May. It was suggested that the club take some steps towards as sisting in entertaining the delegates. The matter was referred to the enter tainment committee. Mardi Gras. E. Lesser of the committee from the German Turnverein presented the mat ter of a mardi gras to be given in this city in February. The Turnverein de sired the Commercial club to assist in the mardi gras. Mr. Lesser said that ten years ago a mardi gras was given by the Turnverein here, which brought to the city the biggest crowd ever seen in Birmingham, not excepting the Confed erate Veterans' reunion. He said a great many people who yearly go to New Or leans and Mobile would stay at home if they could see the same thing here. He wanted to know if the Commercial club would assist in getting up the affair. The cost, he said, would hardly be more than t7fi0. Every retail merchant and hotel In the city would reap some bene fit from such a carnival. The movement was indorsed by the club and a committee of five appointed to co-operate with the Turnverein com mittee in ascertaining the cost of same, ttc. On motion the club adjourned. The Secret of Contentment. The most contented people are those who abide by the old and tried; the old is so satisfactory that the new cannot offer any Inducement for a change. Now that is just why Simmons Liver Regula tor has maintained Its popularity these many years, notwithstanding the many imitations and unscrupulous dealers who have done everything possible to draw the people away from Simmons Liver Regulator. The people of the south have too much good sense to turn away from an old friend, especially when the old friend is so far superior to everything that is new. To take Simmons Liver Regulator means a long life and a happy life. But 'twill be a short life and a mis erable one to any who allow themselves to be persuaded by dishonest dealers to take any of the Imitations or counter feits. Stick to the old friend with the Red Z on the package, the real Simon pure article. FAILING MANHOOD General and Nervous Debility.
