It has been knon throughout
the town for some days that the
least possible hope could be enter

for the recovery of Mrs. Mary Jane,
wife of our esteemed townsman, Mr.
David F Cannon. For days and
nights her life hung by a tender
thread. loving relatives and friends
watched eagerly with gladness every
slight rally, bnt with painHhey saw
each time she relapsed to a weaker

attention and skilled physicians
conld do. availed nothing in com
bating the disease that was slowly
but surely sapping up her vitality.
For several days Mrs. Cannon waB
Though prepared for the inevit
able, her death, which occurred
abous 9 o'clock Sunday night, wis
soon known all over Concord and
carried a shock and pain to a host of
warm friends of the familj.
Mrs. Cannon was a daughter of
Mr. J A Moss. Two sisters Burvive
her ; they are Mrs. Esther Gibson
and Mrs. Jas. R Erwin, of Concord ;
her brother, Dr. John Moss, died
several years ago.
Mrs. Cannon was 55 years old and
surviving her are her husband, one
daughter, Miss Nannie and two sons,
Masters Frank and Archey Cannon.
She was a noble woman with warm,
kind feelings of sympathy and eons
sideration fer all her acquaintances,
who held har in highest esteem.
In this saddest of afflictions a
husband ro&bed of his faithful and
devoted wife; children, robbed of
their fond mother there is a home
on North Main street of sorrow,
where the loss is great and severe,
but pot that loss which a doubt and
an uncertainty of the hereafter
causes to sting. To all the afflicted
and bereaved there goes out the ten
derest sympathy of the whole com
munity. The funeral services were con
ducted from the residence at 4
o'clock, by the pastor, Key. W C

A Fox In Town.

through the yard and was lost.
Several yt.irs ago a young fox was

MOST DESTRUCTIVE AND
A Planing Mill In Ho. 8 Demollahed
One Killed and Several wrasaM
Kntrln and Boiler Thrown s Foe
Mr. Jack Harris May Wot Beeever;
Bo's Badly Hart.
Mr Jtekson Safrit lives abont 6
miles northeast of this city on what
is known us the Salisbury and Hags
ler's ford road. It was at bis home,
about 150 yards in rear of his mi
dence, where was the scene of a hor
rifying explosion this (Wednesday)
morning at 7:30 o'clock.
Mr Safrit and his sons, Robert
and Victor, were engaged in running
a planing mill, and were assisted by
laborers John Bost, of No, 5 town
ship, near Hileman's mill, and An
derson Close, of No. 6.
All nve or tne above named were
under the shed in the lumber room
in which the machine had been run
ning. Robert Safrit was under the
mill changing the knives to dress
coarser lumber when suddenly
something went wrong with the
working of the engine. It was only
an instant until the report of the ex
plosion was heard, when the engine,
boiler and platform on which it was
built, shot through the shed into
the air, and tell at a distance of
about seventy-eight feet from its
base, sweeping as it went the shed
from its foundation and blowing
pieces of machinery and lumber in
every direotion for several hundred
yards. The lumber shed and one
end of a work Bhop were completely
demolished and splintered, leaving
only fragments of the buildings
and a heap of wreckage on the mill
As it passed through the shed,
Master Victor Safrit was caught up
by the engine and badly mangled.
His sknll was crushed, one arm and
one leg broken. His death was in
stant. Among the debris was found
Mr. Safrit, father of the boy that
was killed, with a large bole in his
right temple and otherwise bruised ;
his wounds are considered fatal, and
he may die at any time.
Mr. John Bost, a resident of No.
5 township and father of five ohil
dren, aged about 50 years, was
found under the wreck in an un
conscious state with his skull
cruBfled in behind his left ear. In
all probability he will die.
Mr. Robert Safrit, who owns the
plaining mill, is about 20 years old,
and showed great presence of mind
in laying flat under the machine
when the gulshing engine and boiler
passed directly over him. He es
caped with a few slight bruises on
the face and bach.
Anderson Cruse, a laborer, who
lives probably a mile and a half from
the scene of the explosion, was badly
hurt about the face and head. He
walked from the wreck to his borne
where he became unconscious. His
injuries are not serious, although he
is badly bunged up.
Mr. Davis Barrier was within a
few feet of the boiler, putting lum
ber under the shed where the others
were. He was the only one en the
outside of the shed, and when hear
ing the curious noise about the en
gine gave the alarm of danger and
ran, barely escaping being blown in
to atoms by flying pieces of the
boiler. He was struck on the left
side and badly scalded by steam.
Master Victor Safrit who was
killed, was a bright little fellow of
15 years. He was a general favorite
with all who knew him, and nothing
but worthy praise was heard from
the lips ef those who were present
at the scene ef death.
Mr, W R Blackwelder, who lives
three-quarters of a mile from Mr.
Safrit's, in conversation with a
8TAjnAKD reporter, who was on the
scene shortly after the occurrence,
gave his opinion as to the oause of
the explosion, and stated that it was
a defect in the boiler, and that it
could not be attributed to careless
ness. The report of the explosion
was heard by him, at his home, dis
The boiler and engine was a com
bination, upright one, and had been
in constant use tor several months.
It was purchased by Mr, Robert Saf
rit who owned the plaining mill,
from Mr. Caleb Nussman.

law of Esquire J J Barringer; a
brother to Mr. Matthew Safrit, and

This (Wednesday) morning about
3 o'clock Mr. J Whit Bnrkhead
It was known throughout the
town that Mr. J Whit Burkhead,
who for six months has been in de
clining health, was neanng the end.
The announcement of his death was
no surprise, though one that carried
pain to many and many who held
him in the highest of esteem. For
the last six weeks he has been un
able to leave his room; during all
this time the dread disease was
wastine his life and bringing him
closer and closer to the end. Noth
ing was spared to make his suffering
as light as possible.
Mr. Burknead was a son or our
yenerable citizen, Mr. J C H Burk
head, waa born in June 1860 and
was raised here in Concord. On Oo
tober 2, 1884 he was married to Miss
Alida Woodhouse, sister of Mr. H
Woodhouse of Cannons & Fetzer,
and this union waa blessed with
boys and S girls, all ot whom sur.
yive Mr. Burkhead,
Mr. Burkhead was a "model man,
upiight and pious. For years he
was a salesman at Cannons & Fetz
er's, and several years ago he laised
the stock for the Cabarrus Cotton
Mills, of which he was elected sec
retary and treasurer, a position he
filled with capacity and accuracy un
til some weeks ago, when ill health
prevented his further attentiou.
To know Whit Burkhead was to
like him and eBteem him; bis own
quiet, courteous and business man
ners won friends for him. The
death of such a citizen, with so
mnch promise, is indeed sad and a
loss to Concord.
To the bereaved wife, whose fon
dest and most devoted attention was
given him in health and especially
in his illness, the little children and
to all the bereayed, Concord's warm

Prefers Republicans to Democrats.
A special to the Baltimore Sun
from Raleigh says : Senator Marion
Butler, in a letter to a friend here
today, said : '''Have our friends rest
easy with reference to any rumored
co-operation or fusion with any
party. Nothing will be done in any
direction without a full consultation
with our friends. All things being
equal, I believe that we should stand
by those who stood by us during the
last campaign in preference to those
who fought us I am surprised to
see our friends get so easily excited
oyer rumors published in Democratic
papers. If our people had to cor
rect all such rumors by publishing
cards they would not have time to
do anything else," The rumor to
which Senator Butler alludes was
that he was participating in a plan
for the fusion of his party, the Popu
lists and the Democrats.
The average man knows no more
now than before the Senator spoke.
He's one man that can change in a
twinkling of an eye. Why, he

are anti. Caucasian.

brother about the same size, brought
load of wood to town and after
unloading, went to the lot to feed.

sent home in a buggy by Mr. Corl.
