The fire is supposed to 'have caught from the chimney in the front of the house and had gotten under considerable headway before be ing discovered. The present Are aquipment was useless, as the res idence was not situated near enough 10 the water for the hose to reach it. There was only a $1000 Insurance on :he house and none on the furniture.

Pay New York, Jan. 6. -Hundred of to' dustrial plants are reopening through out the country after long riods of idleness. Prom Maine to the v arollnas and from the manufacturing centers of the West dispa.U:lioi tell of a revival In industry that has ushered V n the new year. t Two fail.rs are outsMndit-g in this move to get back to norm: y first, reduced wages, with labor accepting readily In some cases, and i hers tak ing them under protest, s ondly, a feeling of optimism among he manu facturers that If l'1 will n Ail, a per ceptible return to the orderly timeB before the war. Save in a few isolated instances there have been no strike and no dis turbances. Here and there the tran sition has taken on odd and interest ing turns, as in the case of the brick masons of a fire clay company in Salt Lake City. These men several hundred in number, asked the com pany to refl-u.ee their wages from $10 rest $8 a -tey. In Greensboro, N. C, a syndicate controlling a group of cotton mills was compelled to make a J5 per cent cut In wages, and to even up matters it slashed prices 25 per cent in the stores, which it runs for its 3000 employes. A 20 percent reduction has been ac cepted by 9000 employes of the Pull man Company in its shops in Illinois. This means that the men lost but one fifth of the increases they have re ceived in the last three years. Tens of thousands of workers are back on the job in the New England textile mills, under 'reductions of 22 per cent in pay. JACKSON COUNTY CITIZEN WRITES HISTORICAL BOOKLET.

Built entirely of pine from our mills, each piece that went Into it had to be per fect in every particular; there Is not a square inch of sap In the building The ceiling has been oiled and .varn ished and with the finished workman ship, finely displays what our pine is capable of. Mr. William Nix was the builder and It does credit to his skill." Speaking of the value of advertis ing the Star of March 13, 187S, says: 'Two weeks ago Mr . Oppelt, our foreman, found a gold pen and case, at Seranton, and advertised for the owner in the Star. He received this week a letter from Michigan stating that the notice had fceen seen, and de scribing the case and pen and reqeust ed it to be forwarded." For some one to answer.

On Friday morning, November 26, I started from my home, for Chlcago,4 Illinois. I Went by Vancleave and at tended our West Jackson County Fair, and saw the splendid exhibit that was brought from' various sections of the county, From there, I went, to Pasca goula, where I spent the remainder of the day. At 9 o'cloek that night, I left for Mobile, reaching there about 10: 16. Here I spent the night at the Battle House Hotel. Saturday morinng, I left Mobile at 8 o'clock, for Artesia. At State Line, Miss., a club girl and boy, and county agent joined me We reached Artesia at 4 o'clock that evening.- Here - a special Pullman was taken for the Club Girls and Boys. The rest of our crowd got on here, making a total ot forty. It did not take us buta few minutes to become acquainted, for we never meet a stranger in the Club work, and before long, everyone, was talking, laughing and having a merry time. Our chaperons brought our supper and breakfast with them from the college, and we ate supper as we were passing through Tupelo, Miss. We did not talk so long after supper for we wanted to go to bed earlyand get a good night's rest. Sunday morning, we got up about 6:30 and we ate breakfast as we were going through Red Bud, Mo. We reached St. Louis about 9:30 that morning. Hhere we changed trains and left about 9:35 for Chicago. In going Into the city of St. Louis, we went through a. tunnel that was under the business section of the city.' In leaving the city, we passed over this same tunnel. Just after we left St. Louis, we passed through a small coal mining town. We went through several good farming sections, on our way up there. We passed through the states of Mississippi, Tennessee, Kentucky, Missouri and Illinois. We arrived in Chicago about 5:30 Sunday evening. We went to the Atlantic Hotel. We did not go anywhere that night, because we were too tired, and wanted to get plenty of rest for the next day. On Monday, we got up at 6 o'clock, had breakfast, then we went to the Y. M. C. A. Hotel. Here, we met Club Girls and Boys from othen states. North Dakota, Illinois, Michigan, Iowa, Tennessee, Kansas, and Arkansas. Here each Club boy and girl received a souvenir walking cane. Then we got on an elevated street car and went to the International Live Stock yards. All of the state delegations marched, one after the other to the entrance of the stock yards. The Armours Girl Band played for us, and afer having yells and songs from all the states, we entered the building where the grain was exhibited. Here we met a num ber of the members of the U. S. De--partment Af Agriculture. After going through the grain department, we spent the remainder of the day look ing at the live stock. 'e saw the various breeds of cattle, horse's, sheep and hogs. We also saw the ex hibitions of Sears Roebuck & Co. and Montgomery Ward & Co. After supper, we went to the grand stand and saw a great horse Bhow. Some of the things we saw were, horse parade, Shetland ponies to buggy, horse racing to buggy, saddle horse racing, cavalry and artillery horses, pony racing, sheep dog . exhibition, racing for chairs and cattle parade. We went back to our hotel about 10:30 that night. On Tuesday morning, we all met at the Y. M. C. A. Hotel and went from there to Armour Packing Plant. We went through the slaughter pen, and on through different sections of the plant, then heard a' lecture on the In spection of meat. Later we saw a demonstration on cutting meat. We had luncheon in Armour's Restaurant. imira some Inter esting talks from some of the prom inent members of the U. S. Department of Agriculture. We then visited the Armour Soap Factory. We were so tired after seeing so many interesting things we decided to go to the hotel instead of going to the entertainment that night. Wednesday was Wilson Day. After assembling at the Y. M. C. A. we went to the Chicago Board of Trade, and Stock Exchange, and saw how the grain is bought and sold, and how the price of grain Is decided. Next, we visited the Boston Store Observatory. - From this e'oi-rvatory we could see a large portion ot the city, and It was very interesting to watch the traffic on the strees below ua, In leaving hi place, we walked through the business section of the city, and then jaj went to partake of the Annual ClurjT)inner that was gtvea by Mr. Thomas E. Wilson. At dinner. . Wilson had the youngest Club boy on one side r'aio and th rl - not only dainty souvenirs that were given them there, but each- one had a warm feeling, in, their heart, (or the man who Is so interested In their work, and who had furnished them such a pleasant day." We went to our hotel, and after .having supp went fo the Princess theatre, we saw a very interesting drai . Thursday, we went to Cormlck Works of the fnterm Harvester Company. Wefpent the .morning, in looking over the different factories and various sections of ihelr plant. Then' we had luncheon. At our plates, we found some pretty little souvenirs. After enjoying a very de licious dinner, we heard talks from some of the leading men of the pflfct. Thursday afternoon, we visited Sears Roebuck ft Co. , Some of us were disappointed- here, ..when we didn't get to .gee any of their mer chandise, nevertheless we enjoyed seeing their splendid system of man agement, In this great firm. rom nere, we went 10 me rouiuy snow. We saw various breeds of chickens, turkeys, ducks, rabbits and guinea pigs. Then we went back to the hotel Friday was our last day in the city and of course' our pleasure was tinged with sadness when we thought of say ing goodbye to each other, but still it was one of our most Interesting days in the city. That morning, we went out to Lincoln Park to the Zoo. It was very . amusing to see the the various animals of the world, some of them being familiar, while others were perfect strangers to us. Some of the animals we saw were; polar, grizzly, brown and black bears, wolf, Eskimo dog, fox, buffalo, bison, sacred ox, elk, deer, zebra, kangaroo, zebu, lion, elephant, tiger, puma, let pard, monkey, chimpanzee, snakes, and all kinds of birds. After visiting different portions of the park we went back to the hotel. Here we rest ed awhile and then went to Marshall Feild's Store. We had luncheon there and then spent the eveniqaMn shop ping and . looking over thebre. It was late when we left here, and went back to the Atlantic, then we bade adieu to the city where we had such a pleasant time. , We all went to the station together, but there the crowd was seperated, a part going hy way of the I. C. and the other part of us going on the M. ft O.. W left Chicago about 8 o'clock Fri- went to ted as soon as we got on the train. Saturday morining we changed trains at Jackson, Tenn. Wt got our breakfast here. We left there about 9 o'clock and reached Meridian, Kiss., at 7:15 that night. There were oily seven of us who spent the nigh jn Meridian. Next morning, four ot us started at 3:30 for Mobile. The three delegates from Green county got off at State Line, leaving me alone for the rest of the journey. I reached Mobile about 8:30. My county agent met me there. We spent the day in walking over the town until our train left there about 2:00 o'clock for Pascagoula. We got there at 3:16. I spent Sunday night with my aunt, that lives there. Monday evening, I came out home, getting here about 6:00 o'clock. This is only a brief sketch of my trip to Chicago, for it would be im possible for me to tell all that I saw while on this wonderful trip. It has been worth far more to me than six months attendance of a good school. For there is nothing more educational than traveling. We girls and boys brought back with, ub not only souvenirs and pleas ant memories of our great trip to Chicago, but with our hearts full of gratitude and appreciation for the great and noble men of Mississippi, who made It possible for us to take this wonderful trip. We have better opportunities than any other girls and boys of the world, and we should make the most of these opportunities. So let us .strive to do better work than we "have ever rtmie oetore, ana" lets make thenme ot Mississippi ring everywhere th Club Work.
