people, friends of Mr. Barksdale, rushed
in after him, whereupon Crawfora
struck one of them, Mr. M. B. Canu,
a terrific blow on the head with a
sledge hammer. Infuriated at this the
brothers of Mr. Cann closed in on
Crawford and cut him severely with
knives. In the general melee two of
the Cann brothers were cut in the
hand either by the negro or themselves,

Orangeburg, Oct. 21.?The main
dormintory at tlie State Colored college,
known as Morrill hall, vas det
stroyed by fire at 8:45 o'clock to
r night. The building was of wooden
construction and five stories in
height. It was the last wooden
building at the college, the others
having been destroyed by fire. Three
buildings have been ? burned in the
- V last four years. Last year the col4
lege suffered a heavy loss by fire and
two brick dormitories have just been
completed to replace burned buildings.
Tn fhe hnildine burned tonight
were the auditorium, the chemical
laboratory, most of the class rooms
and 150 rooms for students. None
v of the students were injured. Some
of the furniture was saved and
many of the students escaped with a
portion of their personal effects.
It is thought that the fire was of
incendiary origin. It sorted in an

treated with Sloan's Liniment.
Cleaner than mussy plaster or ointments;
it does not stain the skin or
