the extent of about $400. TJhe con
tents of the grocery were partly
ruined by water, smoke and flames.
It was stated that the fi?e origin
ated in a living roomin the rear of
the grocery, presumably from a coal
range which, had been used a short
time previously. The fire spread so

ANCIENT BURIAL PLACE
(Augusta. Chronicle)
It is believed by mayw wise and
experience'd men that centuries be
fore the Indians, a. race of people
greatly superior to them in arfr and
knowledge, lived here. That such a
race of men occupied portions of
Kentucky at some time cannot he
doubted. We can only speculate
concerning the prehistoric people
who dwelt here in fable mystery dur
ing the silent centuries of an un
written epoch. But it is certain
that our little town of Augusta has
peculiar historic value, for it is lo
cated on a large burying ground of
these ancients. Everywhere between
the mouths of Locust and Bracken
creeks, skeletons of great size and of
great number have been found.
When Gen. John Payne dug his cellar
110 skeletons, were taken up in the
f space of 60x70 feet. They were of
all sizes from sevenjfeet long to tne
infant. Many arrow heads have been
found and earthen ware of clay and
pounded mulch. Some of the largest
trees of the forest were growing over
these remains when the land .was
cleared in 1792. The Indians had no
tradition about these people. 'We are
lost in .conjecture as to who they
were and how they become extinct.

SOLAR ERUPTION MAY BRING
MORE SUNSHINE
Recent solar eruptions which
caused brilliant auroras and disor
ganized cable and telegraph service
throughout the world may result 'in
the earth receiving an increased
quota of sunshine during the re
mainder of the year, says Oliver
Lodge, the noted scientist.
He even ventures the opinion
that the electrified particles thrown
off by the sun during the disturb
ance may assist in the development
of vegetation and reduce the amount
of t dust held suspended in the at
mosphere. Sir Oliver savs the magnetic dis
turbances that, attended the solar
eruption were due to a torrent of
electrified particles, which constl"
tuted a gigantic electric current.
This "opinion is also held by Ca.mile
Flammarion, the veteran French
astronomer.

, CARD OF THANES
We, the undersigned citizens, take
this method of expressing our sincere
thanks to qur many friends who
came to our assistance during the
fire which destroyed" our houses a
few days ago. Especially do we
thank the members of the Paris Fire
Department and Mayor January for
their heroic work in fighting said
fire against great odds, being out
side the city and our only available
water being from wells and cisterns,
the new pumper in this case proved
to be one of the best purchases made
by the present city administration,
as without it our little village would
have been destroyed, in time it will
pay the tax-payers three folds for the
money invested.
