Fifteen little girls and boys are dead as a re sult of last night's fire at the Buckner Orphan Home and nine others are seriously burned and crushed.

The fire, which com menced about 10 o'clock Friday night and raged until the boys' dormitory was destroyed, did cot cool enough for search for bodies in the ashes until early this morning. At that time it was thought that only five children had been burned to death. When tbe ashes had cooled enough to admit of a search, scores of sympathizing friends and neighbors began the sad task of finding the bodies of the five whom it was known had perished. The search had hardly been instituted when the terrible truth that there were more than five bodies in the ashes appeared. The search continued until dawn, when fifteen bodies had been found. 31ILITARY OPERATIONS IN CUBA. Troops Continuing Their Skirmishing Tactics in the Province. Havana, Jan. 16.

A correspondent writing from Til den, Yadkin county, to the Statesville Landmark says a very amusing inci dent occurred in that community not long since. The writer continues: While our "wild bear" was roaming over tbe forest one of our most influ ential farmers had quite a time with him. At the silent hour of midnight he heard a strange noise about his house and got up immediately to see what was the trouble. He ran "jam up" on the so-called bear. In his fright and terror he seized a fence rail and pounded the animal so severely that he thought he bad "saved" nim. He ran to tbe house and waked up the entire family to see the bear. All rushed out pall mell. When lo! and behold! the farmer had broken his fat tening bog's backbone into atoms. He was compelled to heat water and clean his hog before day. Now when he bears a bear he closes up both eyes and puts his fingers in his ears. The farmer's bear tipped the beam at 310 pounds." VERDICT FOR CRAWFORDS.

ABOUT THE SENATORSHIP. Senator Pritchard Admited He Could not Get Majority of Senate. From Daily Sentinel Jan. 19th- Alexander Lillington, of Yadkin county, went to Raleigh last night. He is not a member of tbe Legisla ture, but hopes to get a good job while it is in session. When asked what he thought of the Senatorial fight, he replied that every thing was in a muddle when be left Rileigh Saturday afternoon. He had hopes that Pritchard " auld win but said there was no telling what. Butler could do. He added that the Populist Senator was the shrewdest politican in North Carolina and could out gen eral any Republican or Democrat that might be named. Mr. Lillington was of the opinion that if Pritchard does not win on the first ballot there is lit tle hope for him. The Washington Post of yesterday prints a special from Raleigh which contains some new points in the Sen atorial fight. The correspondent says the opponents of Senator Pritchard are now doing all they caa to unite the bolting Populists against bim be cause be is opposed to interfering with the lease of the North Carolina Rail road to the Southern Company. Gov Rust-ell is strenuously urging the Leg islature to take immediate steps to have the lease annulled, and the ene mies of Pritchard are declaring that Pritchard's" re election means the de feat of Russell- on this measure through tbe influence of Pritchard, who is an attorney of the Southern and known to be against the policy of Gov. Russell on this subject. The annulment of the lease was a plank in the State platform of the Populist Party, and it is now asserted by the opponents of Pritchard that several more of the bolting Populists will not vote for bim. It is openly charged that the Pritchard forces have induced several of the Populist members to go home with the promise to remain thereuntil Wednesday, and thus permit tbe election of Pritchard by reducing the number of votes so that the Republican vote will consti tute a majority of those voting. It is admitted by Pritchard that he can not be. elected today, because he will not get a majority of the Senate Senator Butler is making the fight of his life, and says he has Pritchard beaten. Butler has sent messengers for all the absent Populist members On Wednesday, he says, they will all be in their seats. SITUATION LAST NIGHT. Col. Oids telegraphed his papers af ter midnight: Two things seemed ap parent tonight, at midnight: First, that the Republicans had tried to stampede the Populist; second, that some Republicans are likely not to support Pritchard. It is said the bolters' caucus decided that its mem bers would make speeches tomorrow when the vote was taken, saying they liked Thompson ,and would like to vote for him, but' that he had excused them or agreed to their taking such action. Col. 0:ds saw Senator Butler at 12:30 "There will be no election today. No reason is in sight, and none can be brought in sight why we should not elect a Senator Wednesday. Pritchard is beaten " A CASE WITHOUT PARALLEL. A Woman Killed While Preparing to Suicide. The Hickory Times says that a ne gro woman was killed in that county a few days ago.

His Services Dispensed With. The Winston Aldermen were in ses 1 n Monday night A'dermen Wilson Riugs and McGallard were tbe only absent members. Chairman Gales stated that the street force had been atwork during tbe past two weeks removing the Dank of dirt on Fourth street, under the N. & W. trestle, and doing some repair work. Chairman Pollard 6tated that the Light Committee was at work on a re port which it hoped to have ready at tbe next meeting. Application was made from two Aldermen for come work to be done on Cbestnut and Seventh streets. Alderman Pollard asked the Board for an explanation as to whether or not Thomas Pfohl is in the employ of the town. Also when and by whom was he employed and what are his duties? Mayor Crutchfleld stated that Pfohl was employed at a special meeting of the Board to ferret out tbe blockaders in the city when the bar rooms were closed. He thought he was still in the city's employ. His office Is that of detective. Mr. Pol lard stated that he was not present at that meeting. He said be was glad to te in a position to answers questions in the future regarding the matter re ferred to above. Mr. Clement Manly appeared before the Board in behalf of the Democratic policemen whose salaries were reduced $10 per month before they went out of office. He stated that be looked at tbe matter from a legal standpoint and preferred to have the matter set tled outside of the courts, if it was was possible to do so. Alderman Pollard made a motion that the amounts claimed by the former policemen be paid. The mo tion was seconded by Alderman Carter but it was voted down. Tbose who voted in favor of it were Messrs. Pol lard, Dalton and Carter. The latter spoke in favor of the motion. Ou motion of Alderman Hopper tbe mat ter was referred to City Attorney llol ton. The Police Committee was ap pointed to confer with Mr. Helton as soon as be returned to the city. There was considerable discussion pro and con by members of the Board on this subject. Thomas Pfobl and bis office were discussed again. Aldermac White wanted to know how long be was em ployed as detective. Some members thought it was for three montLs but the Mayor's opinton was that his ser vices were only engaged for one month with the understanding that lie be employed as loug as bis sei vices were needed It was brought out in the discussion that there was no record of Pfohl's election on tbe min utes. It was claimed that he was elected or appointed at a special meet ing or the iioard. held one member thought in the First National bank. The others who attended claimed it was held in the Council Chamber. Aldermen Pollard, Dalton and C. H. Tavis were not present at that meet ing and they expressed themselves as feeling confident that they received no notification tbat it was going to be held. Alderman Dalton, Chairman of tbe Finance Committee, stated that be bad not been called upon to pass upon any bill for Pfohl's services. It ap pears to be a question whether he aud another member will ever "O. K." the bill. Mayor Crutchfleld claimed tbat when Pfohl was employed he was placed under tbe Police Committee. Ciiairman White, of tbat Committee, thought this a mistake ana that the Police Committee had nothing to do with him. Alderman Pollard entered his pro test against tbe Board doing anything without recording it on the minutes kept for that purpose. The Mayor and several Aldermen said the reason Pfohl's election was not recorded was because they did not waut the public to know it, tbinking be could render better service in; capturing block aders, etc. Alderman Hopper said that this was twice business bad been transact ed with no record of it. The first was paying some money to firemen after tbe Board voted against it He and Alderman White expressed themselves as being in favor, hereafter, of having all business transacted recorded on tbe minutes. On motion of Alderman White, the Board voted unanimously to dispense with Pfohl's services From what Tbe Sentinel can learn, Mr. Pfohl's election or appoint ment as detective was done simply to get eight members of the Board "out of a hole." Some of the Aldermen do not deny tbat several members signed a paper agreeing to give Thomas a place if he would withdraw from the race as candidate for Alderman. It will be remembered that after he came down Mr. R. A. Mills was nomi nated. For some time there was talk of Tom getting the tax-collectorship, or something else. The amount of his salary a "detec tive" was not brought out in last night's discussion A man who claims to have seen the pay roll, says that Mr. Pfohl's name was down for $40 two months and for $50 the thud month. This question was being asked to day : "How many blockaders did the detective capture during bis term of office?" Failures Monday. Chicago, Jan. 18.

Kansas Populists Would Prevent Wo men From Hiding Bicycles. Topeka, Kans., Jan. 12. The Pop ulist Legislature of Kansas will re form the morals of the people if legis lation can do it. Representative Lambert will introduce a bill early in the session prohibiting the wearing of bloomers by women, and make it a misdemeanor for a woman to appear in a public thoroughfare astride a bicycle. He says eminent physicians agree these women are ruining their health by riding the bicycle, and tbat the habit unfits them for tbe sacred duties of motherhood, and if con tinued will soon extinguish the race. A disinterested and clear-headed judge doesn't al low himself to be biased by- preju dice. Superstition doesn't affect his decisions. Mere tradition has no place in his rea soning.

The plain, umlecorated facts about Dr. Pierce's Golden Medical Discovery are all that is necessary to convince fair-minded people of its transcendent merit. They are as follows : All diseases come from germs. The jrermt get into the blood, prof 'igate and increase in the blood, which carries them all over the body. When tliey find a weak spot, tin y stick to the wtak spot. It becomes a dis eased spot, and the disease is called by the name corresponding to its location in the body. The cause is th Mine fbr nearly all diseases. All impuritie .e germs, or breed geinis. Impure blood means germ filled blof. 1. Kill the perms, eliminate the im purities, eniich the blond, and it will force Itself into the diseased spot and strengthen it, and give it power to throw off the germs that ,'xist tht 'e. Dr. Pierce's Golden Med ical Discovery is designed to do this thai is the theory. The facts are these tens o ihousancis of people have used tbe "Dis covery." It used to he sold with the under tandii:sr that if it didn't cure, it should be returned, and the money refunded. No tody ever asked for the money, and so tbat clause was dropped. Thousands of people have written voluntary letters of thanks to its di-coverer. A few of these letters have been included in Dr. Tierce's great thou sand page book, Common Sense Medical Adviser.
