LIEYE IX THE THEORY THAT

A large por cent, of the people
do not believe that kerosene will
burn. If the victims of oil cans could
be du«; up out of the cemeteries an.t
forced to anwwer a questionnaire,
doubtless all of them would agreo
that they were mistaken. We have
seen poor, deluded creatures stand
and pour oil on a fire or in a atove
out «f a. kerosene can. either right
onto the blaze, or upon coals, where
immediately a dangerous gas forms.
,AH the while the pitiful creatuiv
j would be looking off, and talking
about something else.
If those Danbury and Stokes* coun. i
ty boys and girls, and men and
women who have this dangerous
habit, will read about the Laurin.

week (printed below), and try
keep tbler mind on the subject until
■ they read the piece clear through,
maybe it will at least impress on
their consclousnaj enough to remind

bystander* so they may escape when
the oil can is reached Dor.
I Now listen:
' Laurin burg, Oct. 2.—Six members
of one family who were fatally

were buried in one grave near those'
