The inhabitant of riattmnoiith

bad been in operation the day be

caught fire from a spark.
After the tire was discovered it
did not take it long to gain head
way as the mill was frame build

The mill waf built by Mr. Ileisel
and Mr. Rout in I VW a-id has been
used ever nince lor a 'louring mill
and when the due M;irti l it iroved
to be a verlible "fire trap."
Hefore the firemen were able to
reach the building it was bejinitl

on the building and the (ire was

the building was destroyed.
The loss is a severe one to Mr
Ileisel and he was unfortunate in
not having the building insured.

able that he will rebuild at present.
Mannled In a Press.
Wallie Thrasher, a Hon of J. II.
Thrasher and Tnii llKUAhli's ollice
boy, met with an accident last night
that has crippled him for life.
In company with a younger
brother, Wallie came down to the
office yesterday afternoon to "wet
down" the papers in order that the
first side of the weekly edition
might be "run off" curly Monday
morning. He partially completed
his work and then the boys started
to run a job press standing near by.
They put some ink upon the disc
as near as can be learned -and
started to run the press. The press
is run by a treadle and it is sup
posed was going at h high rate of
Bpeed. The younger boy was run
ning the press and Wallie at
tempted to stop it by catching hold
of the arm at the side of the press.
His hand slipped oft and was
taught between two cog wheels,
which mashed and mangled his
hand in a terrible manner. As
soon as his hand was extracted
from the wheels he started for Dr.
There it was discovered that the
hand was crushed so that it was
uecessary to amputate all ex.
ceptthe thumb After the opera
tion had been performed it was
found that the thumb could not be
saved and his whole hand was am
putated just below the wrist.
The press must have been run
ning at a terrific speed or it would
have stopped before it had laterally
torn hi hand to pieces.
If he had kept on with his work
and had not stopped to play with
the press he would have had two
hands instead of one.
After the hand had been ampu
tated and dressed be was removed
to his hoinc'and is getting along as
well as c-.ild bc expected under the
LiUen by a Tarantula.
W. II. Maitland is the name oi a
man who runs a restaurant at Alvo,
Cass cotnty.' Sunday while Mr.
Maitland was taking some bananas
from a large bunch he had hanging
up in his store, he was bitten by a
large tarantula, which had taken
up its abode in the fruit. The
insect was captured alive, but died
h short time afterwards. The un
fortunate man was placed, as soon
as possible, under the care of a
physician and it is thought at
present writing that he will re
cover. Mr. Beecher'8 Quill Pen.
