The news spread over

quickly, causing genuine regret, for
Mr. Seigle's estaolishment was one
of the moat attractive and popular
in the city. Mr, Seigle has been i
pressed for money for several months
owing to bad collection?, but his
friends who were aware of his em
barrassment and need, thought he
would pull through. A claim of
$5k2 which was presented and pressed
yesterday at 3 o'clock, and which
could not be met promptly, brought
matters to a crisis, and 12 minute3 :
after Mr. Seigle made an assignment. '

Mr. McD. Wadkins, a dairyman of
Charlotte, suffered great loss from a
pestilence among his milch cows re

He called an expert veterinarian
from Rdeigh who pronounced it
Texas fever. It seems that the
contagion is conveyed from one to
