startling repot t that the storm through

of sending to the bottom a four masted
iron sidling ship, wliich must have car

Th- Si. Peter and the other vessel had

GENERAL SOUTHERN NEWS.
Lynchburg. Va Sept. "0.- rians have
been prepared for the building of a
large addition to the factory of the
Lynchburg Pants company. The num
ber of operatives will be nearly doubled.
The company was organized a short
time ago and is Lynchburg's latest en
terprise. Piedmont. W. Va.. Sept. 30. The
American Steam Laundry, recently
completed and in operation but a few
weeks, was almost totally destroyed
by lire at an early hour this morning,
together with nearly all the machinery
and a quantity of laundry. The laun
dry was built by A. A. Duty and J.
Kd Cole, but Mr. Cole had pun based
Mr. Duty's interest the first of the
week. There was $TiOO insurance on the
building, which was a new one; $1,500
on the machinery, and 'Mti on the laun
dry. Americus, Oa Oct. 1. The first cyl
indrical cotton bale from the large
press just erected at De Soto, near
Americus, was sent here yesterday af
ternoon, and was regarded with consid
erable interest by cotton warehousemen
and dealers. The bale is four feet, in
length and eighteen inches in diam
eter, weighing ."St pounds. A light cloth
covering was stitched about the bale.
No ties or heavy bagging is used, the
heavy steel rollers pressing the cotton
so compactly as to render this old
method of binding wholly unnecessary.
The new press on the De Soto planta
tion is the first cylindrical press ever
erec ted in C.eorgia, and if it proves the
success its inventors claim it will bring
about a revolution in the handling and
compressing of cotton, and the many
costly presses now operated throughout
the south w ill to a great extent remain
idle. It is claimed that 200 bales from
a cylinder press can be loaded upon a
car, as against C." as now compressed.
Charlotte. X. C, Oct. 1. Mr. E. Cald
well, a good farmer of hay, has brought
200 bales to this city this season and
has a laige crop remaining. lie has
rmt brought a bale of cotton to the mar
ket, and isn't bothered about what cot
ton is bringing. The Wilmington Star
savs: "Mr. Caldwell may sympathize
with his brother farmers who pinned
their faith en cotton, for whk-h they are
now offered live cents a pound, barely
the cost of production. He has hay,
which isn't the sport of speculato-s,
and for which he linds a good steady
market at home at prices wliich evi
dent'y satisfy him. Mr. Caldwell does
not work half as hard as his brother
farmers, who raise cotton and don't
raise hay. but buy it out of the pro
ceeds of low priced cotton. And with
all this Mr. Caldwell is m;iking liis
land richer instead of poorer, so that
he can raise large crops of wheat, corn,
oats or cotton, if he should conclude to
plant any of that, and will in a few
years, if he has not already, a farm
that he ran sell for twice or three times
as much as those farmers who stick
to cotton could get for theirs if they
wanted to sell."
Newport News. Ya., Sept. CO. Miss
Cora Kotchenrenther, who came to this
city from P.altimore only a few weeks

taking a drug, the nature of which is

timore. Acording to her stury they live
m. v. . si iUu.nei ry street. Cora, it is
said, came to this city to visit friends,
but commenced to lead a reckless life
shortly after ln-r arrival here. In fact,
her rash act of last night which re
sulted in her death was committed in a
house kept by Mabel Lester, on Twenty-third
street. The girl, it was said,
was very morose, and engaged appar
ently in deep thought during the entire
day. She frequently spoke of the
shameful life she was leading, and ex
pn sst d a desire to reform. About 10
o'clock last night she threatened to
commit suiside and went to her room.
She wrote the address of her father on
an envelope, and handing it to a small
colored girl who was in the room, she
hurriedly mixed a liquid concoction in
a cup and swallowed it. The drug
caused her to scream from pain. Some
time elapsed before a physician could
.be found, and in the meantime the girl
sank rapidly and expired at 12:30 in the
Horning. She was about IS years old.
DEATH OF NEAL DOW.
For Seventy Years IIo Was a Leiider
in Temperance Work.
Portland. Me.. Oct. 4. Xeal Dow, the
veteran Prohibitionist, died at rkt'.O
o'clock Saturday afternoon.
It was on the 20th of last March that
the vh--ie temperance world celebrated
the I'lld birthday of (leneral Neal Dow.
For half a century previous he had held
ii unique place in the public eye, .and
for 70 years of Ids long life he had been
a leader in temperance work. His fust
movement in this direction was when
he induced the town authorities of
Portland, Me., where he was horn, to
abstain from Paging the old town bell
iit 11 and 4 o'clock for the citizens to
take a drink. He has ever been the
implacable foe of drink, and though In?
naturally incurred the enmity of all
connected with the liquor tralhc. honors
have been bestowed thickly on him.
In P.'l the Maine legislature, after
years of How's bombardment, passed
the famous prohibition law.
The biography of Xeal Dow deals
with what may be large figures. At
CO years of age he raised the Thirteenth
Maine, and led it to the front, was shot
four tinn s, and landed in Libby prison.
At an age w hen most men are dead he

fire which raged all over the country j
on Saturday, being fanned and driven
by a gale of wind, di-d out during the 1
night and yesterday morning's sun 1
dawned upon a terrible scene of d -ath
and devastation. Farm houses, imple- ;
incuts, crops and live stoc k were every- !

lost their all. !
A most lamentable story comes from :
Beausejour, 40 miles east of this city,
where two women and live children j
named Moreski were burned to death.
Fire came upon their house, which was
in the woods, from two directions sim
ultaneously, and shut off all means of
escape. Only a few charred remains
There were many narrow escapes.
Carcasses of horses, cattle and sheep
are lying all over the di. -trict and a

several hundred cords of wood and j
thousands of tons of hay were li-kcd 1

Nearly every farmer lest his hay and
their grain and implements.
There were large herds of cattle pas- '
