F. 8nlpes Gone Crazy.
Tt -was learned this morning that
ever since Mr. Snipes returned from
New York be has been acting in a
very peculiar manner, but nothing was
thought of it until today wken he
went stark .mad. It has been intimat
ed several times since he came to
Roawell that he was crazy, but not
until it was known that he is still
selling all lines of goods at the old
prices was he dubbed perfectly crazy.
Cotton is still 15 cents per pound
and all cotton Roods are sky high, but
by going to market early we got the
same old prices on nearly all lines
and we are going to be crazy enough
to give our customers the benefit of
our low purchases. tl

ESCAPING GAS SETS FIRE -
TO GAS PLANT BUILDING.
The corfrugated iron building in
which sets the gas making machinery
at the plant of the Roswell Gas Com
pany, In the ndrtheast part of town
was damaged by fire at seven o'clock
last night. The packing blew out
around the gas purifier, one of the
machines of the plant, and the escap
ing gas soon caught afire from the
lamp, and this set fire to the wooden
framework of the building. The fire
con pan y responded quickly and put
out the flames, but there was hardly
enough wood about the building to
make .much of a fire. The machinery
was not damaged and in a short time
was again .making gas. The public
service was not affected by the blaze.
The only damage rests in the burning
of some of the timbers of the frame
woik of the building.
