MY FIRST CHEW
I remember the first chew of tobac
co I ever took, and today I wish it
had been the last. I was a kid, and
like many other kids, not exactly on
the square. I lied about the tobacco.
I went to a man named Aus Buffum
and told him my uncle wanted a
dime's worth of fine-cut. They used
to twist it up in tissue paper in those
days, buying it in big wooden pails
like they now use for shipping candy.
I got the tobacco, and walked all alone
about a quarter of a mile to a school
house and there all alone, so far as
this world was concerned, I took the
chew. It tasted salty but I chewed
it with a vengeance. Suddenly I was
taken seasick. No sicker boy was ever
on this earth and I felt sure I should
die and wanted to. I was sick for
several hours; weak and deathly pale
The next day, determined to be mean,
I went to Aus Buffum and told him
that fine cut was not what my uncle
wanted, he wanted Cherry. In those
days there was a vile brand on the
market known as Cherry tobacco. I
bought that. Aus Buffum knew I
was lying. I knew it. I chewed it,
and have chewed tobacco ever since.
Why did I want ti chew tobacco?
What demon tempted me? I didn't
need it. I was not a slave to it, and
old Nature rebelled and made me
doathly sick but I defied the Fates
and became a victim ofnicotinp. I
cannot in my philosophy understand
why I wantonly and with premedita
tion, running and falsehood wont into
the di'ty habit. I cannot understand
vlirit is in a boy who will do such
things. When I see a kid today smok
ing a cigarette, porhaps Ins lirst one,
I wonder v.hv he deliberately makes
such a fool of himself. I wonder why
boys are not given the pood sense
that a dog is given aye that a hog is
given. You can't make a dog chew
tobacco and a hop: Will drink beer or
whiskey but one time.

Thin, brittle, colorless and scraggy

There is nothing so destructive to

FIRE AT SILER CITY ;
BUT FOR THE HEROIC WORK OF
THE CITIZENS THE TOWN j
WOULD HAVE BURNED LOSS '
IS CONSIDERABLE. . j
At two o'clock Tuesday morning fire
was discovered in the small grocery
store of Henry Wright, at Siler City.
The alarm was given and soon a nuin-1
ber of men were on the scene with
buckets and began to fight to save the 1
business section of the town. The
building in which the fire started was j
a one-story frame structure and burn-!
ed very rapidly. The flames quickly1
spread to two adjoining wooden
buildings, one of which stood within
ten feet of a two-story brick building
in which there are three wkidows in
the second story and next to the burn
ing building. For a time the entire
business section of the city was
threatened and it was only the heroic
work of the citizens that saved the
large two-story brick building of
Wrenn & Edwards which is located in
the very heart of the business section
of the town. If this building had burn
ed there would have been no way to
have saved the other business blocks.
The following is an estimate of the
Stocks of groceries belonging to
Henry Wright, $1,100, with $800 in
surance; building belonging to L. L.
Wrenn, worth $250, no insurance; mar
ble works of J. M. Ray, loss $600 no
insurance; house belonging to L. L.
Wrenn worth $200, no insurance; har
ness and repair shops of C. R. Elkins,
loss $800, no insurance; building be
longing to R. H. Dixon and H. S. Fox,
worth $.'100 with $200 insurance; dam
age to Wrenn and Edwards building
$100, covered by insurance;; damage
to K. of P. and I. O. O. F. hall fur
niture $25; damage to plate glass
front in Grcgson and Dorsett whole
sale grocery building belonging to L.
L. Wrenn, $100, fully covered by inn
surance; damage to glass in Chatham
hotel, $25, no insurance. During the
fire a ladder upon which four men
were standing broke throwing them
to the pavement and W. A. Brooks
received an ugly gash upon the head.
The origin of the fire is unknown, but
it is supposed that it was started by
rats or from the electric wires.
