Didn't Know It "t--i - The train crewjoa fi49 of thetHexte, btranchyesterdaysacved a home t. Cliff . Switch from destruction by flames. The house, "which was almost a Wock'fro'm the. railroad "tracks, was afire, and one side of it had been-en-gulfed ''.by .tiie flames, when the rail road men began their assault on it. When Engineer Sullivan noticed the fire he was almost a mile from the scene. He started the whistle to blow ing furiously and opened .the throttle. The noise of the siren soon attracted the attention of the train crew, and when the engine drew up opposite the burning home and came to a sfbp, conductor, engineer, brakeman and the other attaches leaped off and hur ried to - the building. Bruce McCammon, one of the crew, hastened into the building to notify the inmates who he supposed were asleen. He found an elderly lady sit ting beside a fireplace knitting, ignor ant of any danger. He hurried her from the house and escorted one of her grandchildren, who was the only other occupant, from the building. By this time the crew had organized themselves into a bucket brigade. The water was carried from a well almost a block away, and the trainmen worked heroically for fifteen minutes. When the blaze was finally . extin guished, the firo fighters dashed back to their posts of eluty, and were ;n such a great hurry that they neglected to ask the name of the occupants of the house. Those who took part in extinguish ing the flames were: Bruce McCam mon, Harry Arnold, Eugene Sullivan, Ivan Fitzgerald, B. Hostetter and Vernon Hoover. STRANGE SHOWER FROM SKY A remarkable fall from the heavens of large quantities of what is dascrib ed as meteoric floss took place at Healdsburg. The shower, which be gan between 7 and 8 a. m., and reach ed its maximum about 10 o'clock, was seen by all the inhabitants of the town. According to an eyewitness, the material appeared high in the heavens in a clear sky, as a mass of stars, lus trous metallic -sheet sand silvery ropes. It reached the earth in various shapes and sizes, ranging from minute narticles to sheets twenty feet square It fell in such quantities that long ropes and massqs of it hung from the telephone and telegraph wires. When the substance reached the warm earth it began at once to con tract into fibrous masses, resembling flossy asbestos, though tests proved that- it was not that material. Most of it soon disappeared, though sam ples were saved and sent to Director Campbell, of the Lick Observatory, and to Prof. Tito Alippi, director of the observatory at Urbano, Italy.

DEAL; GETS INSTRUCTIONS ON BIG COTTON POOL Cape Banker Explains Huge Task of Financing The Southern States COMMITTEEMEN SERVE BUT WITHOUT SALARY Fund of $135,000,000.00 Will Be Used to Relieve Depression in Cotton District Mr. E. J. .Deal, President of the Southeast Missouri Trust Co., of this city, who was recently . appointed a member of the Cotton Pool Commit tee, yesterday received the following communication from W. P. Holly, Secretary of the Cotton Loan Com mittee: E. J. Deal, Esq., Southeast Missouri Trust Co., Cape Girardeau, Mo. Dear Sir: As you arc undoubtedly aware, the Plan for the Cotton Loan Fund contemplates the selection by the State Committees of Local Committees'' in their respective States, the number of and the lo calities to be served by which are to be determined by the State Committees. The functions of the Local Committees will be to ob tain information with respect to each applicant for a loan, the se curity offered, including the char acter of the warehouse in which the cotton may be stored, the suf ficiency of the insurance policies and a variety of other details, which can be more readily ascer tained by those in touch with a particular locality than by the State Committee. No particular number of ir-.embers for Local Committees has been prescribed, as it was considered that the State Committees would probably wish to vary the number in accordance with the probable amount of busi ness to be transacted in the re spective localities. Please have in mind, however, that the members of all Committees must be ap proved by the Central Committee in Washington. As the selection of Local Com mittees is a most important func tion of the State Committe?s, and one which will, no doubt, receive their careful consideration, we send you this preliminary com munication in order to be as i ore handed as possible in arranging for the administration of the Fund, and request that th" State Committees w;ll at once tike up the appointment of the Local Committees. The Cotton Loan Committee is working out as rapidly as possible all of the details considered es sential in connection with the practical administration of the Fund, which include the formal delegation of authority to the State Committees, who will, in turn, when they have sufficiently considered their particular prob lems, delegate authority to the Local Committees. As scon as these details have been completed we will send you the formal dele gation of authority by this Com mittee and hope at the same time to send you instructions in detail with respect to the approval au thentication, etc., of applications for loans. Meantime, for your general guidance, we are enclos ing a copy of the completed Plan. Since it is considered that it will be advisable to arrange so that two or three members of State Committees may approve applications for loans, it will be advisable for us to have on file the signature of each member of each State Committee; and in or der that this point may be cover ed at the outset, we are enclosing herewith a card for your signa ture, which we shall be obliged if you will sign and return at your earliest convenience. In order that all may be advis ed, we are sending a copy of this letter to each member of each State Committee. Very truly yours, " W. P. Holly. Sec'y Cotton Loan Committee. Mr. Deal feels gratified at the con fidence displayed in his sincerity and judgment, when responsibilities of such magnitude are entrusted to him. While there is no compensation what ever for the services rendered by any committeeman, he feels that the trust reposed in him is ample remuneration for his best efforts exerted in the work of relieving the distressed conditions ; m 1 (A C ti mm M "t;.i: W is !t.A SltV.Y.-.-A V'!':! i 'n i : JVi J",t IliiiteilliSiife !il ' ' ' III in - m it i : Mm I in i ; ! ill" 'lit. ti r.i I- t' n . n i . ... . ;.. . . :iiuuut:iUUiiuiiii:iit:aij.:!i!iiiU!t!iii:ililitlii.l!'ii.i:ii:.:. . it, i J ." ill i III ii YoHCanMakeYonrHouseMoreAttradive With the Handsome Babbitt Premiums A TEN-CENT can of Babbitt's , purs lyc is paid insurance against dirt or germs: guaranteeing clean Ginks, and thoroughly sweet and sanitary conditions in the home, and in your bciT.z., kennels or hen houses.

In discussing the plans of the Cot ton. Pool committee, Mr. Deal said: "It is proposed to create a fund of approximately $1:55, 000, 000 to be known as the Cotton Loan Fund and to be used for the purpose herein stated. Subscribers to this t'l.rd Hiail be divided into two classes to !e des ignated respectively as ckms A and U subscribers. "With the exception oi' these in .Mo. and Va..

Every Dollar Paid Out Is Returned With Interest You who think it is an expense to carry life insurance Read this: A took a single premium twenty year Endowment poi'i;y for $25,000. He was thirty-live jrars age when he became in sured.. When he was fifty-Jive he received $25,000 in cash, and over 4 per cent compound in!e-est on every dollar he had pr"d for his insurance. Besides he had protected his family with that ?25,000 estate from the very hour he took his policy. B at thirty-five years of r.tfe. took a S10.00O twenty ye;.r Endowment policy on which he paid the premiums annually. At fiftv-five he received S10.000 in cr-sh, and over 2 per cent com pound interest on every dollar he had paid. Also, he had pro tected his family with .;. 10.000 capitai ever since ihe day o.i which he made his first payment. They would have received th? ? 10,000 if he hrd 'icd rt any time during that twenty year;. C took a twenty payment Endowment policy for $20,000 tj become due when he was sixty years of age. At sixty he re ceived the $20,000 and o.er 3 per rent compound interest on every dollar he had paid in. Besides, that $20,000 had becn standing ready foi his family ever since the day he became injured. An Endowment policy is better than compound interest in the bank. j It is the one way to lay -up an estate to receive good in- j t'rest on your ioney and if you should die before you have j saved a bountiful inheritance for your family, they receive the j money you did not have a chance to earn.
