This wonderful mill is at Arrlligdale, Va., on the Atlantic .and Danville rail? way, and is tlie property of the Catn|. Manufacturing Company. It bi a most complete mill in every respect, and will be a great sight to all interested In lumber manufacture and others.

Quite recently in New York two deaths occurred from poisoning by the i use of powders sents to the victims by mail. In Lcavenworth, Kans., the other day nearly every doctor in town was called to attend the children who had gathered up, eaten and been made ill by samples of an article left at houses by canvassers for advertising purposes. Alum baking powders have always been favorite aria les for this sampling business. Vet there is nothing more liable to lead to danger than the prac? tice of using the various samples of baking powders left at the door. They .ire presi nted by Irresponsible parties, in appearance tire not distinguishable from arsenic, and indeed. In Indiana, some time since one package was found, after it had caused the death of the housewife, to have been mixed with thai poison. It is safer to refuse all samples of food or medicine offered at the door. Pure cream of tartar baking powders sell upon their merits, and are never peddled or sampled. I>r. Rowling Klrrlnl. Th.'
