Resolved, That the Farmers j Fritz F. Schaefer, to which union
of Fayette county increase their
food and feed acreage.
Further, That they plant out-
side of corn such crops, as peas*
peanuts, sweet potatoes, cane
and all kinds of vegetables that
can be canned or preserved.
Realizing the present situation
three children was born.
Mrs. iSchaefer was a loving
mother, whose sole ambition was
wrapped up in the welfare of her
children and the loss to them is
a severe one. Beautiful floral
offerings attested the esteem in
which she was held and time
in shortage of all food and feed,; alone can temper pain caused by
and uncertainty of weather con-
ditions as to raising a normal
crop, we know beyond a doubt
that an overproduction of food
is next to an impossibity.
Further. We realize and be-
lieve that a large cotton crop is
apt to bring a small price. The
demand will be for food and feed.
We further recommend the
publication of this Resolution in
every county paper that the peo-
ple may have a chance to learn of
the same. Aug. Steinmann,

Colored Children Burnedto L eath
Monday evening about seven
o'clock two sons of Frank Ad-
ams, colored, living two miles
east of town on the George Wil-
liams place, aged seven and five
years, were burned to death.
The father was just quitting
work.in the field at sundown
when he discovered the blaze.
The mother had gone to the
George Williams home near by
to do the milking. An older
girl had been left with the child-
ren and says they were playing
in the barn. About one hun-
dred bushels of corn in the
shuck, twenty-five of which
had been hauled in the day
before, was stored in the
barn. It is thought the children
had matches and the fire in the
shucks cut them off from the
door. When the fire was discov-
ered it was impossible to even
wheel out three buggies, one of
them new, belonging to Frank
Adams and his brother-in-law,
Louis Wilkins, in an adjacent
shed, the heat was so intense.
Emil Schulz, Jr., arrived in the
car in time to pull the bodies out
before entirely cremated by use
of two long planks.
From the position of the bod-
ies when found, it was thought
they had crawled into a small
grain bin opposite the door when
the flames cat them off, and bur-
ied themselves under sacks and
cftop grain. There was no pos-
sible chance of rescue.
Besides the sad death of this
tenant's children, he lost all his
grain and feed stuff, five sets of
harness, three buggies, two be-'
longing to himself, farm imple-
ments, etc., and Mr. Williams
lost considerable property, also.
Only the horses and hogs in the
lot were saved.
