BURNED TO DEATH.
Fire In North Carolina Town Brings Fatal
Results to Four Persons.
Csroleen, April 18. At 11 o'

fire froni the closet below, and
before the ,family or neighbors
awoxB to mage une discovery the
fla mes had advanced .too far to
save the building or. any of its
contents, , ... " - . - :
The most dreadful -feature of
the disaster was the loss of two
little children sleeping up stairs,
who were burned to death and
their bodies, this morning scarcely
can be recogn ized . Two son s of
Mrs. McDade, who occupied the
house, were so seriously burned
an i. otherwise injured by their ef
forts to make their escape that it
is not thought that they cau live.
Also old Mr, McDade. wasbadly
burned and may not recover
Details would proncunce this
the saddest calamity in the his
tory of the town
The two young men - of the Mc
Dade family have, died from the
horrible burns received in the fire
last night. The.jx)uiig men were
18 and 20 years of agfr respective
ly, and nearly gave their lives to
save from the flames the two lit
tle children, aged 4 and 6 years.
Mrs. McDade may yet die as a
fifth .victim. Special to Char

forty-eight hours. Now, where
has the house fly been in all of

since he blessed your nerves with
a cessation of his pestiferous at

vanish from the earth, for you
can easily tell that he is familiar

No stranger could possibly make
himself so much at home as your

disports himself with .ethereal
alacrity throughout yur vicinage.
"Tbe wind bloweth where it lis
teth and thou hearest the sound
thereof, but thou canst not tell
whence it cometh or whither ic
goeth." So it is with the house
fly. Wo know when he is gone,
but nobedy has ever uncovered
the mvstery of his retreat: we

opinion that unless steps were

have amassed more wealth than
all. that in the possession of the
Commonwealth of Virginia,' and
every man, woman and child in
the State, allowing that each in
habitant of the State is possessed
of at least $500, a statement so
astounding in its significance as
to amaze the audience. The al
legation, however, was seemingly
borne out by hard facts, with
which Governor Glenn proceeded
to build and back up what he had
The Governor also touched upon
the existing fight: between capital
and labor, and the hard fight
which confronts the poor man in
the establishment of his confi
dence.- The speaker strongly advo
cated the eight hour day and more
consideration for the working man
at the hands of the employers.
Much could be done he said, to
