for hogs and cows, and as soon you
get some seed to spare, put them in

' Spring Preparation.
Don't !burn cotton or corn stalks or j

Den't forget to harrow grain. The

needed by growing grain. Run the

I Burning of Dormitory at Stnte 'CWirod
College Intlicts Very
Serious Bloiv.
The State.
Orangeburg, March 20.?ITwo teachers
and 44 students were injured in
jumping 1'rom the burning building
when Badham hall, a girls' dormitory
at the State Colored college, was destroyed
by fire early this morning. The
fire was the greatest in the history of
Orangeburg. All the physicians of
Orangeburg and many trained nurses
hurried to the scene and the home of
President Wilkinson was converted
into a temporary hospital.
iM'attie J. Beattifite, Charleston, a
teacher, suffered injuries that resulted
in both legs being broken and ribs
fractured. She is probably the most
most seriously injured, but her
chances for recovery are good. Julia
JVlae Williams was the other teacher
injured. The injuries of the students
consisted a. broken legs, broken arms,
fractured ams and legs, broken ankles
and sprained ankles, wrenched backs,
cuts, bruises and broken ribs. All
the injured will recover
In the 'buildings were 300 girl students
and several teachers. Besides
as dormitory, a -portion ot this (building,
being the first floor of one wing
of the dormitory, was used for administration
purposes. It was in these
offices that the Are originated.
The origin of the fire is unknown.
The night watchman had passed this
dormitory and registered at the clock
five, minutes -before the fire wae discovered.
rfom the great headway immediately
gained by the fire, work of
incendaries may be expected. The
president states that he has fceen Unable
to discover the origin of the fire.
The first girl awakened saw flames
eating away the door to her room.
She gave the alarm. In that portion
of the dormitory stairway escape wag
impossible, as the first floor was a
mass of flames. ?The only escape for
the many girls in that section a: the
building was to jump. The result
was appalling. Forty-six were badly
injured, 14 of -whom were seriously
J The 'building destroyed, with the
furnishings was worth about $40.-000,
over which there was insurance
amounting ti *33,000. Just as soon
Bh the aL'i'i was given, all of the
i door? were opeDe-d, except those in
the midst of the fames. The students
came out orderly and safely except in

was a modern brick structure,
attain beat<nl throughout. The work
of W. S. Wilkinson president of the
J college,
-was highly commendable. He
has managed the institution since the
fire in an admirable manner.
College work will go on uninterrupted,
just as soon as rearrangement
can be perfected* this week. The
girls of the college will be quartered
in the dormitories c' CVaflin university,
-which adjoins the State colored
college. 'There are ample class
rooms, and the dining room and kltchpn
u-prp not destroved. although in
J close proximity to the destroyed
building-. Nearly all the students
are destitute of clothes, but this necessity
is being met with assistance
from Orangeburg people and parents
ol' the students. .
Kditor The Herald and News:
Please allow us the privilege to
make some expressions of thanks to
our kind neighbors and friends who
were so kind to us during the bitter
hours of the short illness of our dear
[boy, John Arthur. He bid ius farewell
I ofa the 23rd of last month at the tender
age of eighteen years. Yes, dear
'friends, we shall never forget your
kind deeds and com orting words, but
only those of you who have tasted of
the cup know how bitter it is. But it
lis the cup the Father has given us to
j drink and we are resting on His blessed
promises that He will never leave
us nor forsake us. And though He
has taken away our dear boy He has
not taken away his loving kindness.
And some day these trials will ibe turn
ed into joy. May God's richest bless
in^s retjL upon each one of you is the
sincere prayer of the undersigned.

cause for complaint or dissatisfaction
could possibly arise from anyone. These
druggists say?"Buy a bottle of this rem

Cough, Severe Cough, Croup or any
Bronchial Affection, and we will return
your money, just the same as we do with
Schiffmann's famous Asthmador, if it
does not give satisfaction, or if not found
the best remedy ever used for any of
these complaints." Why not take ad
vantage of this guarantee and try this
medicine, and get your money back, rather
than buying another purely on the
exaggerated claims of its manufacturer
or on the strength of testimonials from
, others and run. the chance of getting
something worthless and also wasting
