A Severe Wisd Storm.
During4he gale Thursday night
a part of the walls of the new
Masonic building .* were blown
down. The brick work on the
second story was not completed
and the wind had a fair swipe at
the unprotected walls. * The loss
in bricks and delay in the prog
ress of the work is not a trivial
one. Contractor J. 8. tf&m&r
will go right on with .the work
and we learn that the Masonic
ouilding committee have agreed
to share the loss with him. ;.
The wind started Thursday
night , coming from the northwest
and continued all day Friday,
tinuing with greater velocity JVi-
day night and Saturday, It was
the most severe and prolonged
straight wind we have experi-
enced in many years.; *
Several out houses; and some
fencing were blown down and
other minor damages are reported.
When yog want the best, get De-

Salve. It is good for little or big
cuts, bolls or bruises, and is es

Twt rim #• Friday.
Early Friday morning a chim-
ney at the Beckham house burned
out and the roof caught on fire
in two places. The neighbors
responded promptly and the fire
was quickly extinguished with
but trifling damage. The wind
was blCwing a gale from the
northwest and had it not been
for the prompt and kindly action
of those living nearby, this house
and doubtless others would have
been destroyed. . ■ ^
In the afternoon another atarjn
Sof fire was given, which was In

Newspapers Compared with Handbills
A newspaper has 5,000 readers
for each 1,000 subscribers. A
merchant who puts out 1,000
handbills gets possibly 800 or 400
people to read—that is, if the
