Fire in Fisher's Cellar.
About 4:j0 o'clock Sunday after

arrested the attention of people
passing ale Main" street in the

about the size of a man's hat was
found to be burning in the cellar of

for the fire to get a hold upon or
there might have been a great conn

found no fire when there. Nothing
but the cotton burned.
About this time some little boys

held for nine years. In 1875 North
Carolina College, at Mt. Pleasant,
called him to become its president.
Retiring from the presidency of the
college, he became the pastor of
Holy Trinity, of Mt. Pleasant,
which church he served many years
until his physical strength required
him to give up active ministerial
It was while he lived in Cabarrus
county that nearly all of the grown
people in Cabarrus, Rowan and
Stanly counties learned to know him
personally. Besides a finished
scholar, Dr. Dayis was a great ad
mirer of agricultural life and he
gave much thought to farming
methods and those inflaenceB that
haye so much to do with farming
operations. He made many agricul.
tural speeches in these throe coun
ties, and we violate no good tastes
in Baying that no man attained td a
warmer place in the hearts of the
people than that held at all times
by Dr. Dayis.
This writer .accompanied him to
Palmer yille on one occasion. His
mission was the delivery of a literary
address at the close of Iks High
School then in charge of Prof.
Hamilton. His reputation and
ability preceeded him. We thought
we never would get away from
there. He. was pressed the ntxt day
to make an agricultural speech
we neyer saw a bigger crowd at a
country gathering and after that
Mr, Joe Bost and others wanted to
carry the Doctor further down the
river to make another speech. The
Standard believer that the great
influeac.s Dr. Dayta 'exerted in this
section not only in church but in
ciyil matters will liv on toreyer.
Immense crowds of people at
tended his funeral in Salem.
Some ten months ago bis wife, a
lady of most estimable and loyely
qualities, preceeded him to the

They are: Mrs. Frank Chalmers,
Paul, Jeff, Henry, John and Luthei,
all of whom were present except
Heniy and Luther who are in Flor

of Dr, Dayis will carry sadness to

Cook and his connection with those
people, among other complimentary
things, ps follows :
"Rev. t P Cook has resigned his
charge here to accept a ca'l to

so long with this people, they were
yery loath to give him up, as the
Joint vestry called together on the
11th inst to act on his resignation,
declined to accept it on the' ground
that it was contrary to the wishes of
nearly the entire membership to
have him leaye. Another meeting
of the vestry was held last Wednes
day. Iu the meantime Trinity,
which he had been supplying, unan
imously voted its , approyal of his
services and its regrets at the proba
bility of his leaving. Howevor in
obedience to the wishes of the
pastor, who could not then honor
ably surrender his call to the new
field, at this second meeting the
resignation was accepted. He ex
pects to enter npon bis work tbere
the 2nd Sunday in January and will
hold his final service in Ada next
Sunday morning. Ee has served
the Lutheran cr urch here as pastor
for V years and by his many excel

power of Coddle creek, at what is
known as Patterson's mills, four

a most substantial, attractive and
promising cotton milling property,
owned and operated by the G W

Some months ago, when the ques

mills in the South tbe home of the
fleecy staple Mr. G W Patterson, a
successful and prominent business
man cf Concord, seeing the advan

tbe severs! draw-backs of an
incorporated town oyercotue by
easy railroad facilities, and
seeing the disadvantages easily
and knowing the gteat paving in
motiye power to be had at the point
ia question, conceived the idea of
forming a stock company for the
purpose of erecting buildings and
establishing cotton mill plant at
the Patterson mills, on Coddle
creek, just four miles from town.
In a quiet way, characteristic of
the safe business qualities of Mr. G
W Patterson, he raised the stock for

The authorized capitalization is
$100,000. None of the stock is

premium within the last week.
Tbe building is lighted by its

The water power, while not yet
thoroughly teated, is the best in this
whole section. It is confidently
believed that the mills can be inn,
by water power alone, at least six

four months. This represents an
enormous saving in money that
must be expended for fuel, where
there is no water power at all.
