The first explosion took one of the

Causing Prooerty Loss
One of the most disatrous fires m
years occured Friday morning at 9
o’clock, when the Shipman Oi^^ fac
tory of High Point including machinery,
finished goods and stock in process
was burned to the ground. The exact
cause of the fire is unknown, but it is
said to have originated near the sander.
It came without warning to run for
safety. It was seen from the first to
be an ugly fire and though the fire
department was on the scene promptly
and worked heroically, there was scar
cely any hope from the first of savin
the plant and as soon as the flames
bu"st through the iron siding of the
building there was much danger of
nearby plants catching.
The Grant Furniture company and So
uthern Furniture company both caught
but the efforts of the firemen quickly
put out the flames. It is thought by
some that the blowpipes had something
to do with it. There was $28,000 in
surance but the loss is heavy, some
thing near $50,000.

not sufficient to send a man to the
penitentiary it is not enough to keep
him out of the Senate, and then adds:
“Tnere have been times when a man’s
right to a seat in the Senate was
judged on higher gprounds than his
right to be at laifce.”
