Lindaey in Burling ton yesterday morning and destroy ed his machinery and a big lot of and gutted four big brick bnildings which were formerly oc cupied by the railroad ahopsoF the North Carolina Railroad Co. Mr. Lindsey'a lumber plant occu pied one of the buildings. He wan well equipped with wood-working machinery and had th msands of feel of dressed lumber in storage in the building. His loas is between $25,- (XX) and $30,000, with SS,(XX) insu rance, and represents his efforts for years. Another building contained vast quantities of records belonging to the Southern Railway Co., several car loads of which were stored there but a few dnys ago. The four bnildings contained the shops of the N. C. R. R. Co. before the road was leased to the old Rich mond & Danville R. R. Co. and later to the Southern. Thev are of massive construction and the loas on them will amount to a good many thousands. They were erected nearly sixty years ago, and no doubt at that time were the largest brick buildings in the State. The fire is reported to have started from an exposed electric wire. Graham's Fire Company respond ed to a call for help, but they nor the Burlington .firemen could do much on account of the long dis tance from water connections Booze Plants Destroyed. Sheriff Story and Deputies Stock ard and llensley have have had a busy time for the pa t.week smash ing booze plants. Last Thursday the? raided one near the Guilford line. No still was found but the other equipment was there and demolished. On Saturday, not far from Bur lington, a welt furnished plant WUB laid to waste. A big copper still was taken in tow and several stands of beer were cut down. Another plant, complete with -top per still and coolers, corn mill, corn and malt was found in Faucette course the equipment was confiscated. Only one person was taken—not fleet-footed enough to out-run the officers. There appears to be quite a lot of blockading going on. The stuff at S2O to S3O a gallon offers such fas cinating profits that some cannot forego the temptation to make a "scoop." Black Walnut Timber Needed. The Agricultural Extensfcm Ser vice is going on a hant in the State for a supply of black walnut which is one of the most valuable timbers for the manufacture of air plane prope'lers and gnn stocks. Those farmers Of the State who have black walnut timber are urg ed to write to the Farm Forestry Division of the Extension Service, giving the quality, size and Quan tity of this timber. The War Department, the Forest ry Department of the Government and all the States and Boy Scouts, have all joined to find the black walnut timber. It is much needed, and very valuable in th 9 prosecu tion of the war. It can no longer be found in abundance, must oe culled, often as single trees from mixed hard wood forest growths. Individual trees may be found as far east as Connecticut, northward in New York to and beyond the Canadian line, southward almost to the Gulf of Mexico, and westward far into the Prairie States. The Ohio ana Mis sissippi Valley States, the Middle Atlantic States, and the Southern Appalachian region, however, are expected to furnish the bulk of the supply. Much of the available back wal nut is in farmers' woodlands. Trees from 12 inches in diameter up can be utilized. A good market awaits this clas of timber. The farmers of North Carolina can thus help materially in' the success of the War Department's construction pro gram, and at the same time, bene fit themselves in a financial way. Standardize Food Prices To The Consumer. A country-wide move to reduce the cost of food to the consumer and standardize methods ol com pelling the observance by dealers of "fair price-lists," has been or dered by Food Administrator Hoover. Lists will be published in every county, trfWn and ci'y and consu mers will asked to co-operate \Cith officials In forcing mei chants to bring their prices to a uniform level. If this can be accomplished, a statement issued by thi Food Ad ministration says, the average buy er will not only be protected but the patriotic merchant who has fol lowed the Fowl Administration's suggestion* regarding prices will be protected against th • unscrupj lous dealer wh'» hat attempted in take advantage of th? situation. In carrying out the ni>w ntinU ardization plan, thi* aJm n ttra.'ion will establish price interpreting committees composed of represent atives of wholesalers, rc t fil'rrj ana consumers. The boar) will deter mine fair retail pr ce» on basis com modities that cjnorisa a lirge part of the nation's diet. The published lists will g vu the of maximum sell.'n; prices, showing a reasonable mire which will reflect tha prices tha shoulo obtain in "cash and carry" stores and a higher price representing a fair ortee tor the "V-edit an I de liver" stores. The local adminis trator for each locality will act as chairman of the price board. Next Friday, 14th, is Flag Day, which will probably be more gen erally observed this year than usual. Hang out the flagtt. Fifty thousand persons are homeless as the result of a Are at Stamful, the Mohammedan section of Constantinople, Turkey. . --.v .■ • ' «■ 1 ! , 11 " ' ' ■ ■■! .
