Defense Against Fire.
The recent fires in and around Salis
bury have put the people to talking
means for defense; against the fury of the
flames. The loss iof the freight depot and
woolen mills might both have been
prevented, had there been water near and
some one willing to apply it. The Hook
and Ladder Company are not organized
for that purpose. They tear down fences,
sheds, burning walls, &c., &c.f but are
totally unprepared to handle water. Some
people pitch into them, others into the
board of commissioners for not providing
something for the protection of the town,
and so on. Now are the people of this
town ready to back the commissioners in
the purchase of any means of protection
against fire, whatsoever? If one, two or
five thousand dollars were spent would
there not go up a wail worse than weep
ing and gnashing of teeth against the
extravagance of the mayor and commis
sioners; and would they not be defeated
by the largest majority ever rolled up
in anv municipal election? This abuse of
the commissioners is not what is needed.

it in the most available shape by means
of distribution through lines of pipe.

hastened to the scene. The fire was un

the telegraph operator, assisted by prob
ably one other person, succeeded in get
ting the operator's table out and one or
two of the djppot agent's books. The rest
of the records, the contents of the depot,
and three loaded freight cars, standing
just under the eaves of the burning house,
were a complete and total loss. The
fire is supposed to have caught in the
garret over the agent's office, which was
used for packing old bills and receipts
away in, and had a large number of these
old papers in it at the time. How the
fire reached them is not known. Some
suggest that a signal light hanging at the
corner of the depot, and near the roof
exploded and that the papers were thus
ignited; others think this not probable.
As yet no positive evidence' of how it
caught has been found. The depot was
not crowded, but had something like an
average lot of feight in it. The loss will
probably reach twelve, or fifteen thousand
dollars, including the three loaded freight
cars. The insurance will cover this
amount. Something like $20,000 was
carried on the depot and freight.
THE WTOOLEN MILLS GONE.
The flames from the burning depot and
freight cars swept across the track and
lit the front gable of the woolen mills
building. It burned slowly, but as there
was no means at hand to save it, it was
soon ablaze on the entire front and roof.
The crowd present did all they could to
remove the machinery. All the lighter
articles were removed, but the heavy,
solid machinery was lost. It amounts to
a total loss to the company, which is
composed of Messrs. J. D. McNeely, T.

land. The material" savd was only parts
of machinery and odds and ends about
the place. The total loss is estimated at
8 or 10 thousand dollars. The assumed
loss amounts to much more. The insur

This is a great loss to the business of
the town, as the mills had constantly em

effects of sickness contracted during the
winter prior to that time. And though
an invalid her bright, genial nature often
enabled her to rise above the ills of the

Lot No. 9.
This ma: bine is a combination of silver plates so as to represent a large amalga
mating surtace, working with rapidity and efficacy, which has not hitherto been accom
plished. The drawing above represents the machine in working position. It consists
of four corrugated plates fitted together, allowing a space between of i inch. Two
plates are perpendicular, connecting with two horizontally inclined. The pulp passes
from the battery and falls perpendicularly tbrSugh the plates, which gives it a zigzag
motion, causing the free gold to impinge on each side, when it passes through the
horozontaUy inclined plates, which act as riffles, catching any escaped gold both on top
and bottom. The plates discharge in a circular pan at the end which is given a rotary
motion, thus concentrating the heavier portion of the tailings for subsequent treatment
if necessary. At the top of the machine is a mercury cup which feeds automatically
any required mercury to keep the plates in active jforce.
This machine is especially adapted for placer mines. It can le worked with or
without water; it requires no mill for pulverization, it only being necessar) to sift the
sand, which can be done at a triffing cost, so that low gRide ore can be worked profita
bly. This machine has been practically tested and is now on" the Herring mine.
Randolph county, where it met with such success as to warrant thefbelief that it will
be of geeat value to the mining interest of Utis State.
This machine lias an electrical attach in entrJyT which the mercury, should it sick
ened by the various causes to which it is liable, can be instantly resmrpd to activity.
Inspection is invited. Estimates given for the en-ctwui ot tins machine en ptacei
