FARM LIFE IN" MANITOBA.
Bountiful Crops Destructive Fires
.Ives Lost-Houses Baraed-Prstee-
The province of Manitoba Has
been blessed this season with the
best crop of wheat in its history.
The farmers have been thereby
made happy. The threshing has
bqfen industriously carried on, and
EeVereat plains have for weeks re
sounded to the hum ol thn ma
chines. Occasional enow storms
have stopped threshing for a few
days, but the great body of the
grain has been threshed and is
ready for market.
While the Northwest has been
congratulating itself on its good
crops and prospects for future good
times, an unexpected enemy has ap
peared in the land, brought dismay
to the people, and spread destruos
tlon before it. Prairie fires have
been ranging over western counties
during the present week, with dis
aatrous results The country be
tween 'Winnipeg and Portage la
PraArie the finest wheat section in
"Canada has been a severe sufferer
by the devounig element. Many
forms have lost their entire crop .of
wheat and hay. Others have not
only lost their crops" but also their
buildings and fences. Some have
lost their cauie and stock as well ab
their houses and grain. In addition
to losing their all a number of farina
ers have been severely burned, and
suffered physical torture as well as
financial 'loss. Three have died
from bu: n and others are seriously
afflicted. Ten thousand dollars
worth of wheat and hay has been
burned into ashes, and many homes
blotted f. o ji the lace of the eartb
The question of prairie fires .has
therefore assumed serious propor
tions in the Northwest No farm
cm be coiibidered safe and every
prairie farm house is menaced with
flames. It is now the most impors
.tant question before the Cunai &
'Peopje; before it immigration and
aTTelopment of resources are msig
nifloant. The protection of those
already in the country, and the
safety of resources already devel
oped, are of paramount consequence.
Prouiuciul legislation and effective
and sufficient legislation are needed.
If means for the suppression of
prairie fires and proper penalties for
originating fires are not provided by
the government, the province will
lose heavily by the neglect, and be
retarded in its future development.
So far the farmers have bad 'jlo
fight their own battle, and contend
with the raging flames with their
own forces. While for days past,
when the western prairies have prec
sented an auroral picture of fire,
and great lakes of flames and bil
Iovb of smoke have rolled up from
the burning grain stacks, I have not
heard of the provincial or municipal
governments of the province doing'
anything to assist the farmeiB to
suppress their devouring enemy.
To save my life, I can't see any
reason why the mounted police and
the municipal fire companies have
not been sent to assist the farmers
in suppressing the fires, or why re
lief companies have not been orga
nized in the towns and sent to the
ravaged districts to help to get the
fires under control, and save prop
erty from destruction. If the Til
lages were visited by conflagrations
and threatened with devastation. I
believe every Manitoba farmer
would lend a hand to help the vil
lagers suppress the fires and save
their property, ihe farmers Keep
up the towns, and the vulagirs
should assist the farmers in their
dire struggle with their burning
foes The government at least
should take a hand and give some
organized aid for the suppression of
prairie fir s add the rescue of crops,
houses, tattle, ttock and people
from destruction. Sh riffs Lave
powers to assemble posses to put
down riots they should fclso have
powers to collect a posse at the
county's expense and put down
prairie fires. A raging fire should
be regarded as a riot, and sup
pressed by the government as a
public etemy. Severe penalties
should be provided and rigorously
enforced against all parties regard
less of who they are for originat"
ing fires, either through neglect or
want of caution. Farmers have
rights, and they should aee that
the r rights are respected. If they
have not adequate laws to have such
respected and enforced, they should
make the laws required.

Tuesday night a slick trick was

of the city. It was very cold and
the negro appeared with a flask of

liked it he could get them some
more. Fifty cents was given the
negro, who started for the spirits,

Some few weeks since Clerk of

Morrison, the present mayor of Con
cord, public administrator. He has
been qualified, has given a bond of
$8,000 and has been regularly in

forming the functions of said office.
Sec. 1389 of Chapter 33 of the code
(vol. 1) says :
"There may be a public adminis
trator in every county, appointed by
the clerk of the supreme court for
the term of eight years."
Sec. 1300 of said chapter says
"The public administrator shall en
ter into bond, with three or more
sureties, approved by the clerk, in
the penal sum of $8,000, payable to
the State of N. C, conditioned faiths

Sec. 1395 of said chapter says:

Article 14 section 7 of the con
stitution of North Carolina says:
"No .person, who shall hold any

Therefore we have an officer hold

which is in direst opposition to our
constitution, and by law thejpenalty
for holding two offices is the for

we have no mayor in Concord.

A BEAUTIFUL MARRIAGE.
It Toak Place Today at Hlg-h Bfoen In
the Presbyterian Church The Scene
One of Beauty and Interest Hiss
Morehead Is Wedded to Mr. Pat
terson. Thursday's Durham Sun: A pret
tier marriage never took place in
Durham than the one which oc
curred today at high noon, at the
Presbyterian church, when Miss
Margaret Morehead, daughter of
Mrs. Eugene Morehead, became the
bride of Mr. Euf us Lenoir Patterson.
The handsome interior of the
Presbyterian church presented an
enchanting scene. The building was
darkened and the soft, mellow elec
tric lights shed a radiance of beauty
upon the symetrical arranged deco
rations, The altar was arranged in
a Japanese garden style, with palms
and ferns, and lovely white and yel
low chrysanthemums stood in match
less rows aronnd the edge of tha
platform, with bright faces as if
smiling their cordial greetings and
sanction to the vows of the young
couple. Next ;to the grand old
organ was a backgronnd of flowers
and evergreens of equal beauty. On
either side of this scene were
grouped a unique arrangement of
chrysanthemums, palms and charm
ing florals, which presented a per
fect picture of loveliness, no less so,
however, than the bridal party as it
stood in a semi-circle on either side
of the. popular young people who
plighted their roth i the presence
of a building crowded with their
friends and well-wishers.
The ushers were J F Wily, J L
Patters m, W R Kenan, Jr., J M
Williamson, Jr., E L Holt, W F
Shall ner and F A Green.
Miss Anni Peay presided at the
organ and at 12 o'clock, the familiar
and inspiring notes of Mendelssohn's
wedding march pealed forth and the
bridal party filed in and took their
places amid the brilliant scene.
The groom with hia best man, A
H Patterson, and Kev. W A Moore
and L B Turnbull, entered from the
left side of the church and took
their stand in front of the flower-,
covered platform. J M Morehead,
with the ushers adyanced down
either aisle and took their places in
an outer circle. The young lady
attendants entered from either
door in the rear of the church and
singly marched down to the happy
spot where two hearts were to be
united. They were attired in white
and each one bore a beautiful bou
quet of large chrysanthemums, al
ternating white and yellow. They
were as follows.
Miss Lizzie Morehead, sister of
the bride, first maid of honor; Miss
Mary Saunders, of Richmond; Miss
Gray Morehead, of Leaksville; Miss
Hattie Howard, of Tarboro; Miss
Annie Erwin, of Morganton, and
Misses '.Matilda Heartt, Lid a Carr,
Mabel Tomlinson and An nfe Watts,
The bride entered from the left
hand door, leaning upon the arm of
J Turner Morehead, who proceeded
to the altar, where she was met by
the groom. It formed a loyely pic
ture. The bride was beautifully
attired in white, with the flowing
yeil and carried a nandsome bouquet
of white flowers.
