CYCLONE IN ORANGEBURG.
SCHOOL HOUSE NEAR NORWAY BLOWN DOWN. Several Children Hurt, but None Killed?Other Damage of Storm. About midday last Friday a cyclone that did damage to several points in Orangeburg county, struck the two mile swamp school house near Norway, almost completely demolishing the building, which was substantially constructed of wood. Sixty pupils and two teachers were in the build* ing at the time, and with the exception of one boy with a broken arm and a leg and one with an injured back, there were no casualties of a serious nature. Physicians from Orangeburg who hastened to the scene of the accident, report that the escape of the occupants of the building from most se, rious injury, if not death,, was simply miraculous and attributed the immunity from injury largely to the substantial character of the furniture used in the building, which protected the occupants from the falling timbers. No fatal results are expected to f follow the injuries reported. Miss Julia Reed is principal of the school. Friday morning at about 11 o'clock the storm struck the Eastern portion of Orangebury city, slightly damaging seven dwelling houses in the village of the Orangeburg Manufacturing Company. A heavy rain fell all I over the city,-but the storm was severe enough only in this part of the cRy to do any damage. No one was hurt, the occupants being at their 1 work in the mill. Five hundred dol- 1 Iars will probably cover the money ' value of the damage done by the 1 storm. Account from Cope. I ] Cope, Jan. 28.?A tornado struck 1 the Two Mile Swamp section this 1 morning about 11 o'clock blowing down the two s?ory school building and Woodmen Hall. The children were at their studies when the storm : struck the building, and a dozen or ' more were hurt in various ways. John Henry Garick had his arm ' mashed to pieces and his back badly 1 hiiTt- Mnrirm Ranford had his arm broken; and several others suffered ? the same way, but your correspon- 1 dent could not learn their names. The top of W. O. Tatum's stables ( near Cope were blown off and landed ' some distance away; but the stock 5 escaped unhurt. * The next place the tornado struck was at Mr. Henry W. Jamison's place over in the Fork, a short distance this side of the schoolhouse. His barn was blown down and other , slight damage was done. No one was ( hurt at Mr. Jamison's. On its way the tornado struck an . open house,-where a lady and child was in the passage way with the . window open and both of them were # blown out, but neither was hurt seri- ( ously. ] Prohibition Bill Introduced. 1 Washington, Jan. 28.?Representative Wyatt Aiken this morning took ] bis seat as head teamster of the water wagon by introducing in congress the most hide-bound and drastic prohis bition bill applicable to the District < of Columbia which has yet come up. Mr. Aiken is a meber of the house committee on the District of Colum- < bia and his bill has attracted consid- ' erable attention. So strong is the prohibition sentiment in the country that it is be r lieved that a majority of the members of congress would vote for such a bill should the District committee report it out, although the chances of such a report are usually considered somewhat remote so far as this session of congress is concerned. Mr. Aiken's bill forbids the sale of liquor- by any person, company, copartnership, association, club or corporation in the District except licensed druggists who can sell only i a physician's certificate j which certificate must be bona fide with a whole lot of restrictions or upon a certificate by an officer of a church who makes application for wine for communion purposes. A number of bills to prohibit the sale 4 have been introduced but this one seems to have attracted the most attention at least so far in this congress. Prisoner Cleared Court Room. Washington, Ga., Jan. 26.?Noticing the unusual appearance of the 1 face of Cy Bullard, a negro arraigned before him to-day on a misdemeanor charge, Judge Wm. Wynne, of this county, asked the county physician to examine him. "Smallpox," said the physician immediately. Hardly had the words been spoken when * Judge, Court officers, spectators, all made for doors and windows, leaving the negro in complete possession of the Court room. An immune officer later took him to jail, where tonight he is the sole prisoner. FEARS OF RACE CLASH ABATER Havana Hotel Incident Apparent!; Smoothed Over. Havana, Jan. 24.?Fears of a rae conflict, growing out of the recen disorders resulting from the refusa of the management of the principa American hotel in Havana to en tertain negroes, have in a great meas ure abated, and the possibilities o further trouble from this particula source have practically disappeared That the difficulty for the present a any rate, was successfully smoothe< over is due mainly to the persona efforts of President Gomez. The President sent his secretary t< confer with the management of th< hotel and summoned to the palac< uen. ueDrecro ana oiner negro ieau ers, with whom he conferred per sonally. He pointed out that th< intrusion of colored men. where theii presence was not desired, was un dignified and merely served to rous< the animosity of Americans witl whom it was highly desirable that al Cubans should remain on the mos friendly terms. He also reminde< them how much the prosperity o Havana was dependent on the num ber of American tourists, whom anj danger of social disorders would cer tainly deter from coming. The press also appealed to all pa triotic colored Cubans not to persis in enforcing their rights at the cosi of the rest of the community. Th< result was that the colored leaden engaged to use all their influence tc prevent their followers from furthei interfering with the hotel. In spite of this, however, the affaii has served to revive agitation, whicl always comes to the fore at the leas suggestion of racial troubles, in favoi of organizing a great negro politi cal party with the purpose of con trolling the Government. The orgai of the Partido Independiente d< Color (Independent party of color,] prints the newly constructed platforn of the party, which contains thes< significant provisions: "The independent party of coloi shall be organized throughout th< whole territory of the Republic, witt a national charter, to maintain its equilibrium of all Cuban interests "The Republic of equality, sov ereign and independent, without rac< discriminations or social antagon isms, shall be our aim." To what extent the promoters oi the new movement may be successful, remains to be seen, but there ?an be no manner of doubt that il the organization of the negro race as i political party should ever be effect5d, it would rule the Republic. Edison's Predictions. Thomas A. Edison predicts thai within the next twenty years the ari 3f molding concrete will reach a marvelous degree of perfection in architecture. This will not be achieves: by great expenditure of money; ii oHIl arv>r?Trmlic?hpri hv lftbor-savin? appliances which will so cheapen the cost of production that, twenty yean bence, the poor will have more beautiful homes than the rich can nov aspire to. Mr. Edison predicts that moving picture machines will be so perfected that the characters will move anc speak, and other stage accessories will make the illusion perfect. Suet entertainments, he says, can be provided for five cents, and will giv< the millions of working people 1 chance to be amused and improved The result will be a hard blow to th( saloon. Locomotives will pass out of ex istence, and all railroads be operate* by electricity. This prophecy seemi very evident of fulfillment. An artia searching for a model of a stean locomotive found out the other da: that to see an old-fashioned engine h< would have to go to Jersy City, a electricity operates all roads runninj into New York proper.

Youiig Boosters Get Best of HalfHour Combat. e With the gameness found only in t pure breed fowls, two young game 1 roosters of Jacob B. Shive, the toll 1 gate keeper at Violet Hill, fought a - large chicken hawk for at least half - an hour the other day, and would f have been victors had not the apr proach of a team caused the hawk to . fly away. t Pnr the nast week chickens have 1 disappeared from the yard of Mr. j 1 Shive and he kept his gun with him in the little toll gate box in expectad tion of shooting the thief who took 3 his chickens. A lover of sport, Mr. 5 Shive saw two of his game chickens - flighting the hawk for at least half an - hour, and said that when the hawk 3 attacked one of the chickens, the r other ran at it with great fury and - began to pick and spur it. The fight 3 continued until a passing team caused i the hawk to fly away. 1 At 4.30 o'clock Saturday afternoon t Mr. Shive saw the hawk circling over i a field a short distance above the f ground and shot, bringing the bird - to the ground with a wounded wing. ? When he attempted to kill the hawk, . the wounded bird sprang at him and put up a hard fight until killed by a - blow from the gun barrel, t When measured the bird was t three feet and two inches from tip to i tip of wings, and twenty-two inches 3 from the head to the tail. Accord) ing to an ancient custom in the r country, Mr. Shive tacked the hawk tc the side of his barn, to be, as he said "a warning to other haws co i stay away."?York, Pa., Gazette.

Just what to do when the kidneys are affected, is a question that concerns both young and old. Weak kidneys neglected in childhood lead to life-long suffering. People of advanced years, with less vitality, suffer doubly. In youth or age, languor, backache, urinary irregularity, dizziness and nervousness make life a burden. There is one remedy that acts directly on the kidneys and cures these troubles. Doan's Kidney Pills owe their world-wide fame to the fact that they cure sick kidneys and cure them permanently. Follow the examnlp of this Bambere citizen and you will be convinced that this is so. Mrs. J. Q. Adams, N. Main street, Bamberg, S. C., says: "I can say that no remedy I have ever tried has given me as much relief as Doan's Kidney Pills. I suffered from kidney trouble for three years. There was always a dull pain across the small of my back and at times I felt very dizzy. The kidney secretions were also irregular in passage and caused me added annoyance. Upon hearing of Doan's Kidney Pills, 1 went to the Peoples Drug Co. and procured a supply. The contents of three boxes have helped me wonderfully. I intend to continue the use of this remedy."
