The Norfolk fire department came
very nearly having to make a long ,
hard trip In the cold air of last night
to help battle against flames at Wayne ,
forty miles away , which destroyed two
s buildings In the business section of
's the town , the Fair store nnd Robin
son's store. The lire started at about
10 o'clock and so fiercely did the blaze
gain headway and so much did It
threaten the town that Wayne pre
pared to call on Norfolk for help In
case of necessity. Later the llnmos
/ were extinguished , however , and the
* local department was not needed.
The fire could be easily seen shining
J against the northeast sky In Norfolk.

A large number of people braved
the cold weather last evening to at
tend the social given by the Hpworth
league In the parlors of the Methodist
church. An entertaining prognun of
musical numbers and recitations was
rendered during the course of the
evening. In the absence of Rev. J.
F. Poucher the fun of the evening was
presided over by Rev. Dr. Tyndall ,
who gave a little talk brimful of sto
ries and Jokes. The league cleared
$15 on Its venture.
For several hours Tuesday after
noon the sidewalks on the south side
of Norfolk avenue proved a paradise
for the small urchin with a pair of
skates. Up and down the street the
boys skated back and forth until the
walks were covered ovur with sand
and ashes. Even then some of the
hoys skated out In tbo street where
there wore level stretches covered
with a thin scale of Ice. Many of the
sidewalks were not covered with sander
or ashes and remained slippery all
day and all night. Where the wind
from the north had a clear sweep
across these stretches of ice it was
almost Impossible to walk and , in
some places , pedestrians were forced
to walk in the middle of the street.
On the east and west streets everyone
seemed to have a preference for the
north side where the snow , was heaped
high but the danger of falling wns re
duced to a minimum. As it was many
persons received nasty falls nt cor
ners and where the wind swept across
the slippery sidewalks.
The Auditorium was dark last oven-
ng because of the severe winter weath
er that kept an audience away from
the performance of "The Hunker's
Wife , " which was the bill for the even-
Ing. The few who braved the cold
were but a handful and It was deemed
best by tbo management to give the
company a rest for a night. Tonight
will be the last performance. "Little
Lord Fauntleroy" will be cast with
Baby daman In the title role. In the
many years that it has been on the
stage probably no play has made so
Immediate and continual an appeal to
children as this When Mrs. Frances
Hodgson Burnett first wrote the book
of the same title it had an immediate
success and was soon followed with
the acting version , which has never
left the stage entirely since. Not only
does it appeal to children in its tender
pathos but it takes a ptrong hold on
older persons because of the intense
humanity of the characters depicted
throughout its scenes. Properly "Lit
tle Lord Fauntleroy" should be classed
as a melodrama and yet , so subtle are
Its appeals to the human sympathies ,
that It stands without the pale of most

several items concerning the man who
became famous by declaring to the

We have used Chamberlain's Cough
