ADDITIONAL LOCAL NEWS.
Several Tlionsanil Dollars Worth of
Lumber Destroyed ,
Mysterious Incendiarism ,
About half past 10 o'clock Saturday
night ilro was discovered in the yards of
the Chicago Lumber Company , and the
alarm soon called out the department ,
The ilamoa when first soon were at the
northeast corner of the dry room , a
building 20 by CO foot filled with dry
plno finishing lumber. The first man to
discover it says that In reaching the place
it looked as If a pan of oil had boon dash
ed against the end of the building , ns
the rapidity with which the ilamos spread ,
together with the odor of burn
ing kerosene , Indicated clearly
that seine one had for some mysterious
purpose sot the firo. The streams from
the waterworks hydrants were soon on
the flames , but before the fire could bo
subdued the damngo had reached several
thousand dollars. The dry room was
speedily consumed , and another building
30 by GO foot , containing throe cars of
sash doors and blinds , was badly burned ,
and the contents damaged somewhat.
Some cars filled frith lumbar were on the
aide-track , and they caucjht fire , but were
moved out of the way and the flames put
out. A barn belonging to J. W. Pore-
goy , and occupied by J , W. Leo , a team
ster , was burned to the ground , with the
contents , which belonged to Mr. Loo.
Mr. Loo's two horses were so badly burned
that they had to bo put out of their
misery by shooting. The loss to the
Chicago Lumber company will probably
roach $4,000 , and was covered by insur
ance. The loss to Mr. Lee is really the
hardest one , for ho is a man G5 years of
ago , and It was his little all. Ho has
been employed hauling sewer pipe , and
by the aid of his team was able to earn a
livelihood , but he has no means to re
place thorn. Mayor Vaughan and J. 0.
Reagan will probably interview some of
the business men to-day and endeavor to
raise enough money to got another team
for Mr. Leo.

AN EDITOR SHOT ,
PolHicH Running "Wild in a Jjively
hittlo Missouri Town ,
Ernest Smith returned Saturday from
his trip into Missouri , and reports a
happy time. He found Rockport in
what a state of excitement over a
shooting nflair , which happened there
Wednesday. It appears that Mr. Low ,
who Is the editor of a democratic papnr
there , charged Mr. Wyatt , a prominent
politician and wealthy banker , with hav
ing packed a certain convention. Wyalt's
son , a young man who has just reached
his majority , was very angry at the way
his father's ' name had been used , and in
his youthful wrath notified the editor that
if ho used cither his father's name or his
again ho would shoot him. The next
issue of the paper had some paragraphs
referring to the young man's freshness ,
and then ho wont to the editorial
room , with a horsewhip , prepared to got
rovongo. As ho struck at the editor the
latter collared him , and was about eject
ing him from the ollico when young
Wyatt pulled a revolver and fired , the
ball inflicting a wound which it is feared
will prove fatal. The young man gave
heavy bonds and is at liberty , waiting
for the result of the wound.
Mr. Smith was wonderfully pleased
with the little town of Lockport , despite
this sensational foaturo. Ilo says ho has
never soon a moro thriving , busy place ,
nor hotter built place for its uizo It has
about 1,300 inhabitants end is strictly an
inland town , there not being a railway
track within five miles , yet business is
rushing. It is the county scat and has
a fine court house , the business portion
is built of solid brick stores , there is an
excellent skating rink , a fine largo now
school building and other worthy Im

The Dos Moinoa Loader oays : Presi

ciety , now in St. Louis , has written n letter -
tor to parties in this city stating that Dos
Moines , having failed to raise the desired

from other localities. To those who sup
posed this matter had boon definitely sot-
tied since subscriptions to the necessary
amount had boon raised hero , the latter
of Mr , Smith may sound strange. The
facts are these : Private subscriptions
aggregating $35,000 bavo been secured ,
and the balance , § 15,000 , was to Jiavo
boon donated by parties from whom land
for the fair grounds should bo purchased.
This was eminently satisfactory at the
time , but since that time the society , not
satisfied with n subscription , sought to
have subscribers embody their obliga
tions in the form of notes. This the lat
ter have refused to accede to , a majority
entering the objection that they did not
care to have their notes hawked about the

"Wo had a heap of fun , Undo Billy , "

"Wall" said the cracker , contemptu

of had some fun , to bo shore , but in my
days wo didn't hov no bands a scroochin'

"What did you do for music , then , to

"Musicl Why , every follow in old

Fo th was a big day iu the piney woods
"Wo didn't ' know what Ice cream was ,
but wo had hull beef crittorajroastod , an'

"Wo usotor hov lots o' fun in them

"Thar was my young brother Sam onct
but aho' you don't kour to hoar the old
man talk , 1 know. "
"Yes , I do , " I replied oaporly. "What
did your brother Sam do ? When wan it ,
and where was it ? "
By this time qulto a little crowd had
gathered around the old fellow , and they
joined mo in importuning him for the
story. Finally ho took a lingo bite of
"niggpr twist" and started in.
"Hit war down at the place you call
Lake City now. Hosailed it Alligator.
The Injuns glvo hit that name , kaso there
was sicli a heap on thorn varmints stayin'
in them thar lakes.
"Hit war oenamost onposslblo tor
keep any shoals whar they was. 'Gators
Is got lota of sense. They ustor make
raids on the pens whar the shoata was a
fattening all the timo. Some of the
planters had grot big pens , but hit wan't
no uao ; thorn 'gators would get together
an. ' take nigh about every shoat outon
"I'yo knowod a half dozen on 'em to
crawl outon the water an' go up to one of
these hero pans. Four of the 'gators
would form a sorter lane , an' tether two
would stand on their tails an' lift the logs
off , an' when the shouts run out the
tether four would kill 'om. They'd
ginorally manage for to git a shoal apiece
an' then they'd take tor the water an'
swim ever tor a little clumpy islan' 'an '
hov a sorter picnic.
"Bat I war gwlnotor to toll yon about
the picnic wo had when Lake City war
called Alligator. Hit war about fifty
year ago. There was a right smart crowd
of boys thar from all around the kontry
fer miles and miles nn' 'mongst 'em war
mo 'an my brother Sam , which was ton
year younger nor me , but powerful built
an' not afeard of nothin' .
"Thar was lots of niggers thar , too ,
for folks was mighty social in thorn days ,
an * wo all had niggers for tor wait on
us."Thar was one big , powerful buck
nigger thar which was called 'Black
ickan' ho was a-cussln' , an * a blowin'
an' ho roconod that ho mout lick any
body thar was around k thorn parts.
Brother Sam had boon a-drlnkin' a right
smart , too , nn' ho felt as pert and sissy-
like ns the nigger did. Finally Black
Alick jumped on my brother earn an'
throwud him plum on his back and jump
ed on him , out Sam was an * olc rough an' '
tumbler , an' ho locked both arms 'round
the nigger an' hilt him clus'-liko BO'S ho
couldn't strike. Ho had a pair of these
here big Mexican spurs on an' ho joss
croat his logs ever the nigger an' war a-
jammiu' them spurs into his flanks for all
ho was wuth.
"At ? ho same time ho was a chawin' of
his face , an' ho had a right smart chance
of tooth in thorn days.
"Tho niggor tried his best to turn him
ever , but Sam never slacked his holt and
kop' a-chamn' an'a-spurrin' all ho could.
The niggor was game , of ho was a nlggar ,
an' stood hit as long as ho could , but
artor half his nose was gone ho sorter
weakened like , boin , no hog , nn' hollered
for tor take him olf.
"But I seed that ho was joss a-wailln'
fer a chance to best Sam , so I dravred
my knife an' 'lowed I'd bo dog-gonod if
he should git up yit.
"Thon the boys wanted to pull 'om
apart , an' kinder mode out that Sam
might got hurt un' was willin tor lot go.
I joss shouted , "No ho don'tl Let him
bol Don't you see how Sam is a lovin'
of him } See how ho's a huggin' of him !
Why , he's a-lovin1 of him so that ho's
joss a-oatin' of him up , "
"Tho boys they less did laugh , an'
finorly the niggor seed that wo wasn't
gwintor help him outon the scrape , like
wise ho got Inter hit his ownsolf , an' ho
give a desprit quick wrench an' bruk
loose. I toll you he was a sight.
"Sam had marked him BO'S lio'd ' know
him ag'in an' ho didn't stop tor say
howdy or good-by , but joes put for the
wojds as fast as ho could.
"Sam wasn't hurt at all. Skasoly ;
on'y parh on hia nose was gone an' his
loft eye looked sorter bad like whar the
niggor had tried to gouge it.
"Olo Deacon Miller said hit was joss
Hie most ainuzonoat fight ho hod over

was a younker ,
"By the way , montlonin * of the deacon
con 'niiiuh mo of the joke ho played on
Jim Simmons the next Fo'th July artor
Sam hod the fight with the niggor , Hit
war down to Gonhor Lope , an' lilt was o

tall , ganglin' cuss , a eort of desput man
like , an' ho kem in the grounds thar
purty full , for ho hod boon a-drinkin *
right smart with the Johnson boys , who
kop' store down by the rivor.
"Well , Jim ho was a-crowln' an' a

" The. deacon , lie was blamed takod

"Hit took him nigh about ton minntos
to git outon hit , an' ho wai the wust

The hull crowd jiss laughed and laughed

"Well , didn't ho ollor to fight ? " I said.
"I should think ho would have boon mnd

"So ho was , " was the reply , "but you

Alexander Machrio is a foreman for the
Spencer & Craig Printing company , Ho
lives on Wright street , Covingtpn , where
ho owns a little homo. Ho is known
among his associates as an industrious
worker , who spends very little of his time
or money in saloons or places of amuse
inont. Every pay day ho managed to pnl
away a few dollars for safe keeping , until
finally ho had accumulated $400. The
young man guarded his little treasure
with jealous care. Frequently ho road
in the daily papers about the
failure of savings banks , which
had boon trusted by poor people
with their fowlhnrd-oarned dollars , and
this made him loose faith in institutions
of this kind. Ho resolved to become
his own banker , and concluded to bury
his money in the collar of his house. At
midnight , about four months ago , ho took
up his lamp and spade and began digging
out a few ieot of the dirt in a corner of
the collar. The § 400 consisted of Treas
ury notes of all donominations. They
wcro placed in a strong box and deposit
ed in the hole ho had dug. The box re
mained undisturbed in its hiding-place
until recently , when Machrio opened it
to BOO If it was all there yot.
On taking elF the lid ho staggered back
pule and frightened. Instead of the
crisp , now bank notes ho had placed
there a short while ago , ho found a hard
lump of paper , which appeared to bo Us
solid as stone. His greenbacks had be
come a petrified mars. The heavy rains
had filled the collar with water , and
loosened the dirt , so that the damp air
penetrated the opening of the tin box
and converted the paper into pulp. At
first Machrio grieved ever his great loas.
But hia hopes brightened when ho was
told that the Government would probably
redeem the money. Ilo called at the
Sub-Treasury , and was told to
present the matter in writing to
the treasury department at Washington.
Ilo confided his secret to Mr. Craig , ono
of hia employers , and the latter wrote a
letter to Secretary Folgor. The reply
that before the ruined br.nk notes would
bo redeemed their owner would have to
prove good character and make nlliclavit
ns to the truth of his statement. Mr.
Craig , in another letter vouched for
Machrio'a honesty and integrity , and at
the same time inclosed an affidavit con
taining the facti as related , which was
dm IT a up by Mr , W. II , M < : Coy , a law
yer , and Bworn to before a notary. An
answer from Washington is now expected

Mr , Nuasmlth was a self-made man , un
polished in manner but with a vigorous

ho made his journey to Washington City.
Ho was u favorite with Charles Sumner ,
who on ono occasion asked him , in the
presence of Hovoral other senators , to
( ivo his impression of members of con-
grcBJ. Mr. Koaunulh replied that "when
ho came into the Bunato chamber and itu
old associations and the great debates in
the senate crowded on hia memory ho
wondered how ho ever got into such nn
historic and august body. " That delight
