SPRING WILL SEE ITS COMPLETION People Who Come and Go Urief Brevi ties of Interest to All Keadera of The Globe. The first brick for the Durham graded school building was laid to day. This is new3 when it i9 news, and good news to every man, woman and child living in this city or interested, however remotely, in its future. Architect L'ary has drawn plans for a hnndsomy and at the same time neat and substantial structure, the building being fashioned after the most improved plans of modern school buildings, the arrange ments for lighting, heating and ventila tion being such as to insure the health and comfort of pupils, and in every way facilitate the young idea which has, dur ing the past two years, done its shooting in this city under such adverse condi tions. Builder Christian, who was inter viewed by The Glojje this morning, says that he cannot at this time name any early date for its completion, the pro gress of the work depending of course upon the weather. If the winter is mild it will be pushed right through, other wise it will be delayed until spring. But one thing is certain. The Dur ham graded school will never have to open again in the old shell it now occu pies. And this is good enou-ih. LIVE LOCAL LINKS. 'J he Diiy'K Record of Current Events in the City and Vicinity.

A committee to ascertain the senti ment of the business men in regard to closing Thursday so as to give their em ployes an opportunity to attend thanks giving services, called on a number of our leading-merchants this morning. The majority were found to be in favor of closing, but not being willing to lose the entire day, it was agreed to close from 10 a. m. to 2 p. m. This will give the clerks a holiday and allow them ample time to remember the widow and orphan in the way of a con tribution and to eat their thanksgiving dinner w ithout the week day rush and the fear of indigestion consequent upon a too hast' consumption of raw turkey. In the canvass this morning the fol lowing firms agreed to close during the hours mentioned : Durham Supply Company. M. B. Wyatt. J. W. Markham. Ellis, Stone & Co. A. E. Lloyd. II. II. Markham. W. A.

Where the Cyclone Perched Wicked Winjrs. on Washington City the Scene of the Worst Old Mow. GREENSBORO SHAKEN UP BADLY Reports from Raleigh Show That Business There Was Also Very the serious to All. A cyclone struck Washington City at 12:30 yesterday afternoon and lasted about ten minutes. It was accompanied byadrivin? rain with vivid flashing of ni OI eir injuries. Last nignt, now lightning. To add to the confusion, fire ever' Jhnny Briggs revived sufficiently bells were rung occasioned by buildings to l)e able to 8Peak. but Carl Stone at in various parts of the city being blown , last advices was still unconscious. The down. " ; condition of both is regarded as critical. The worst of the storm visited the cor- ner of F and 12th street, and wrecked ! t!me yester(ay morning and played con the entire corner. A building in course j siderable bavoc. Besides the sad casu of erection which had attained a height ! alty 'mentioned above, a number of trees of four stories was blown in on the back of several adjoining buildings A num ber of people were employed in these buildings and upon the building in course of construction a number - of bricklayers were at work. The work men had a narrow escape from death, but in an extension of one of the build ings crushed, Mr. White, a tailor, was instantly killed, being crushed and man gled almost beyond recognition. Sev eral other employees in his establish ment were seriously injured. At the White -House about tw7o tons of stone copping on the top of the mansion wras down on the porch on the east side of the building, crushing it. A window in the East room was also blown in. The flag staff on top of the White House was snapped off as if it was glass. One of the large iron posts of the gas reservoir near Georgetown was struck by light ning which set fire to the gas in the res ervoir, and half a million feet of gas soon burned away. Throughout the city houses were unroofed, trees upturned, windows smashed, gas lamps blown down, all of the telegraph and telephone wires disabled and street cars and car riages toppled over. After the storm the sun shone out brightly and the temperature was like that of an April day. AT GREENSBORO. Much Damage AVas Done and a Real Cyclone Was on for Awhile. The Record says : The tin roof on J. Henry Phipps' store was rolled up like paper, and tumbled into Asheboro street, carrying with it the electric wires. Mr. Phipps sustained some damage to his stock of goods, as it was raining very hard. Nearly one-half of the tin on the east side of S. J. Pegram & Co's large brick tobacco factory was rolled up and tum bled into the street. But the heaviest loss was at the North Carolina Steel works. The furnace or cast house a building 80x110 fet which was nearly ready for the roof, was in the track of the cyclone. The walls were 27 feet high, only lacking about three feet of completion. The brick of the south wall, 110 feet long and 27 feet high, was swept away as if it had been built of. straw. The most of this wall was stone, and only ten feet of the brick work gave way. The roofing over the brick works and kilns was blown away and scattered in every direction. The loss sustained by the Steel com pany will not, however, exceed $200, and may be as low as $150. The wind came in from the South and only lasted some three or five minutes in much fury. Had it lasted longer the de struction in our city would have been frightful. The awnings in front of McDuftie & Pigford's store were wrecked. The tree in Mrs. Watlington's yard lost a few limbs. It will come down some day, and lucky it will be if nobody is killed. The large elm in front of the Y. M. C. A. building was so twisted as to render it necessary to cut it down. D. E. Thomas' bill-board, in front of the market house, was blown down. One young lady lost her umbrella, be ing forced to let it go or be carried away with it. Fences in the countrv in every direc tion were blown down. AT RALEIGH. Two Little Roys Crushed Under a Fall ing Tree in Yesterday's Gale. The News and Observer says: A sad disaster resulted yesterday afternoon from the violent gale which prevailed. While two little boys, Johnny Biigg?, the S year old son of Mr. Fab Briggs, and Carl, little son of Mrs J. Levi Stone, about the same age, were gather ing hickory nuts in the grove in the rear of Mr. Fab Briggs' residence, there came along a sudden gust which blew down a large tree not far from them. They were caught by the limbs of the tree and I both were crushed to the ground, Johnny Brigga was struck upon the head by a large limb and his face was mashed to the ground, his features and eyes be ing badly torn and lacerated. His com panion was also-tightly pinioned. Both were held down unable to extricate themselves or to more when they were discovered by some colored people on the place who had heard the tree fall and who came and rescued them. Both were carried into Mr. Briggs' house in an un conscious condition and medical aid was quickly summoned. Both lay in an unconscious state for several hours, and so critical was their !

The framework of the arch swayed to and fro in the wind, and for a while it looked as if it would be blown down. BETTER THAN TURKEY. A Kumor of Something Big for th Ox ford Orphans Thursday. While it is something of a secret, and Tfie Globe has no desire to raise expec tations about which there might be any possibility of disappointment, it comes to us to-day in a way that we consider re liable, that some of our noble hearted and generous citizens are preparing to remember the Oxford orphans in a way quite in keeping with their reputation for open handed liberality, and as will bring joy to the hearts of every one connected with the institution. Just wThat these contributions, will be and the amount of same is not yet known. "Yet the names of the gentlemen heading the movement suggest some thing substantial, and people who think a minute will find little difficulty in guessing who these gentlemen are. No institution in the country is more deserving of help than the Oxford Or phan Asylum and TnE Globe is pleased to know that such a movement is on foot. Thei is no denying the fact that Dur ham folk, with a few notable exceptions, are hummers with a contribution box. A FESTIVE BRIDEGROOM. A Six Weeks' Widower Tells His Love and Stands Again Before the Parson. As an indication of the rate of speed at which we live in the present age, a man living in this county who had been a widower just six weeks, took unto him bimself another helpmeet on Sunday last and is now suddenly transformed from a sorrowing and disconsolate relict to a gay and festive Benedict. The man's name, we learn, is Scoggins, the fair dam sel who undertook to sooth his sorrows is not known up to the hour of going to press. As Theodore Tilton aptly remarks: It is the manly way of men To love and love and love again And wed anew to-morrow. But they usually have some regard for appearances and wait for the corpse to get cold. BUSINESS ANNOUNCEMENT. Important to Those Who Do Not Pay Hilla Promptly. A number of bills are due us on sub scription and advertisements, and many of them are worn out in being carried around for a year or more and still they are not paid. The editors of both The Sun and The Globe have turned over a new leaf. They expect pay for value received. Un less these accounts are paid, after a rea sonable number of presentations; or sat isfactorily arranged by calling on the editors of the Durham dailies, a list will be made of names and amounts and pub lished in the respective papers. This matter must be attended to at once. "Woman's Saffer-age" was what a witty woman called that pe riod of life which all middle aged pass through, and during which so many seem to think they must suffer that Na ture intended it so. The same lady added: "If you don't believe in 'woman's suffer-agc,' there is one ballot which will effectually defeat it Dr. Pierce's Favor ite Prescription." This is true, not only at the period of middle life, but at all ages when women suffer from uterine diseases, painful irregularities, inflam mation, ulceration or prolapsus, the "Fa vorite Prescription" so strengthens the weak or diseased organs and enriches the hlood, that years of health and en joyment are added to life.
