HEAVY DM3AGE
IM THE FIRE
An funwiso attempt to burn out
a colony of spiiclers in . the woods
caused a 'destructive fire Satur
day morning ' the othfer : side of
Marsiballtown. ; V'-:
Among k the iloaera 1 were W, C
Mocre, Mrs. McKnight and. Mrs. A.
E. Muilberger. The totl damage
to the corded wood and standing
timber was fully two or. three
thousand dollars. . . ' - ' : ; .
The fire started on W. C. HlooreVi
land near' the junction , of the - iBd
neyvdlle and Blue Ridge roads.
BIr. Moore has been making pre
parations Ton a large scale for the
summer ettove wood business. He
already had ; a large "amount of
wood cut &nd corded, and .a force
of (hands was at work cutting in
in the woods. One of the hands
found a colony of spiders, and, in
spite" of the resanonstrances of
the otthers, insisted on burning it
out. In tel little while the frames
got (beyond control and spread
over jmore than six acres ' of tlx:
Moore's land land from there to
the inghboring lands of Mrs.Ho
Knight, Mrs Mudlberger and
ethers. .; : : . r ...
On five a.ares of Mr. Moore's land,
the wood had beein cut and. cord

ed. In either plaices, . where there
was standing timber, much dam
age' was done. Some building8

S. &1AXWELL AND
COMPANY
During these daya of food adul
teration and evasion oif; the. so
called (National pure food Jaws, it
is of (highest importance that con
sumers study the conditions un
der which their food supplies are
handled.
It fia a distinct pleasure to call
attention to the Pvxe Food Gro
cery of S. Maxwell & Co., on Mairi
street, (near the Electric Line Oor-
betr. v
This well known' firm not only
buys pure food products but while
they Iremain in their very beauti
ful and modemly arranged store,
every precaution is taken to keep
them panitarily pure. ;
, For; instance, sugar, rice, etc.
etc, We kept in dust proof recep-t
tacles, . Nearly aW other articles
are kept under glass. Tlhe old
fa&Aioned sugar, : cracker bnd cof
fee 'barrel are all conspicuous by
their -absence. " - : : ; V
There is too mbre attractive or
modern jatore in any city -no mat
ter what, itis size.
The igreat display windows are a"
consitant, temptation to step in and
buy of the appetizing pure foods
there displayed, and once inside
the courteous attention of Messrs.
S. Maxwell or E C. Moore, or of
anyone of their many clerks in-;
sures a completely satisfactory
ftrade." ' . ... - .
This firm has made good here.
It does an enormous business and
has just started tqgrow. ;
Of course, there's a reason!

DUCKS
The rapidly growing popularity
of the Indian Runner duck yjx Hen-
demsotn county makes the breed a
matter of getneral interest.
J. S. Holbert, who lives on the
Clear, Creek IRoad, jusit outside of
itowm,- has demonstrated what may
be done here with' these duck
wonders. , . - .
Mr. Holbert (has . six English
Standard Indian Runner ducks, of
the white egg strain. These ducks
laid 186 eggs during March and
172 during April, or 358. in two
molnths which establishes 3 new
recordin jegg production. It is
(needless to say Mr. Holbert is re
.ceiviing more orders for Bettings
thaln he can possibly fill. ,
' The Indian Runner is email in
size, imitiensely active, and their
peamstent laying has given them
the liame fof the Leghorn of the
duck Ifamily. The shape differs
greatly 'from that of other breeds
of ducks, and they lack the char
tacteristic duck aVble,
In a recent egg comitest in Aus'
tradlia four Indian Runner ducka
averaged 266 eggs each for ; the
year. -' 1 !

lection: . '
For myself laasd thoisje who ran
on thie ticket with' me in the re-.
cent municipal election, I wish to
'heartily thdnk those. men who vot
ed and fworked tor ua.We cer-
tadnly fapprociate their efforts in
our behalf. '-,.'- ;
We are not, under Ihe circum
stances much disappointed at the
result. Before we jwere inomii&ited
a tist of the registered voters pf
fhJe city was canvassed. The re
sult of this canvass showed that
the Democrats had too large a ma
jority for jus.to overcome, if any-i
thing like fall the Democrats of the
to wn approved thie manner in
which the affairs of the city had
been handled for the past year by
a board thie majority of whose
members were democrats. But i
not withstanding our decision that j
Hhie majority -Was too large for us 1
to overcome under the- circum
stances, our leading party , men
tlio-ught: fit .best for us to run a
ticket, nd ; laccordingly a meeting
of our people was called, land my
self, . and Messrs.' Griffith Stepp
and Gibba were selected at that
meeting: to make the fight. And
we are glad !t)o know that those
who stood by us so loyally, are
pleased with the fight we put up;
We pitched our contest upon ft
'high plane, fand we believe ourop
poxjents will admit that we fought
a clean tfighjt.
I hope to see the day come when
our public officials can be elects!
by the votes of conscientious cit
izens who may be permitted to go
to the polls and vote as free men,
for the Candidates of their choice.
If this day should ever come in
this . country we will, no doubt,
generailly.et the bea tmen elect
ed to office. .1 hope the people of
North Carolina, will at no late date
wake up to -a full sens of their
duty fin this , respect, and bring
such, pressure to bear that the Leg
islature will not dare refuse to pass
a law under, the yorkinigs of which
every voter can !go up to the bal-
lot box, with la full realization of
what he is (going, there for, and:
Cast his vote absolutely unfettered.
Would not fa (situation Hike that be
a "great improvement over our
presenlt methods? , J
However, let ae sfaly in nfclus
io.n (that I fully believe there re
a considierible number of Demo
crats in our city who do not ap-
prove of the manner in which the
affairs of our town jare being ad-'
ministered by Dejnocrats, and who
would have volted for our men last
Tuesday, but for the f act that they
thought if 1 they old so they
would probably Jbe hazarding jthedr
chances for ja place at President
Wilson'a big pie counlter. If there
is fanything in the World that -will
induce the average Democrat to do
something he idbes blot desire to
do it" is the probability, or bare
possiihdlity, that he taay be given
a islice of Federal pie, fa"' thing :
which Is )so rarely dished out to
him. '. ' " : : . :
. Myself and Jthe gentlemen !whp
ran with me on our ticket the oth
er djay Were unfortunjate In being
selected at this , particular time to
make the ace, when about every
other Democrat in town "Is bald

However, the jfight is over,' and
jiow boys, letls get together fand
make ,a Song pull, fa ) Btrnig pull

GOOD TRADE
Evidences given, to show that
the city made a. good deal in the
purchase of "dumping ground.
That the city did not ; make'' a
mistake in the .purchase of the ;
five-acre garbage farm on the Cd-"v
ineyville.road for $500 is Bhownbf
the fact that the city authorities
could sell it for more than it cost
even-though the transfer was only
made about two weeks ago. .
.... Another situation . has. arisen t
show that it wias not a (bad invest
ment. The authorities have been .,
offered $15 per year ' for the rent
of the grounds as pasturage and
a little trucking. At the meeting
of the. aldermen Thursday night"
it -was decided not; ; to lease - th
garbage batch ' for less than f2S'

fully worth this much for
