Hickory, Aug. 21.— UP) —The rag
ing fire on Grandfather Mountain
burned around in a circle last night
and is slowly snuffing out its own
fury, according to a Hickory man who
j drove down the mountain this morn
t ing. He said one side of the whole
\ mountain had been left barren, and
the only immediate danger rests in
the possible chance that the flames will
creep »ver the top of the mountain
and reach the other side.
People in Blowing Book heard the
roaring of the great fire all last
night, lie said, and Blowing Itock is
IK miles from Grandfather mountain.
He did not believe the danger would
be as great as first reports indicated.
Long distance telephone communi
cation with Blowing Bock this morn
ing affirmed the report thnt the fire is
subsiding. The manager of the Green
Park Hotel said that persons who
went over last night to help fight the
blaze were returning this morning and
the report is out that the fire is dying
down. He said neither Blowing Hock
nor Linville City was in any immedi
ate danger from the blaze.

Radium Has Rival.
London, Aug. 21.—Radon, a new
discovery, costs $5,000,000 an ounce.
Although it is the most expensive
substance in the world, its use will
make the treatment of cancer cheap
er. It is a gas-like emanation of
radium and will be cheaper to use
than radium because it is 160,000
times as active. Radon is put up in
tiny glass “seeds” the thickness of a
human hair. The supply is inex
haustible, but it has the disadvantage
of short life. It loses half of its
activity in about four days, while
radium maintains half of its weight at
the end of 1,700 years.

Barbaric Revenge Taken By Chicago

"And why not brand the thief of

today as Walter Johnson, 25-year
old mechanic, lay helpless, tied hand
and foot before him in the Feleci
Feleci's wife, Rose, only 19, later
told the police Feleci lit a gas jet
and heated a piece of wire. When the.
wire was white hot Feleci drew a
revolver and poked into Johnson’s
"Now,” Feleci said to Johnson,
“I’m going to brand you, and if you
make a noise I’ll kill you.”
The' little daughter. Coehettn. 27
months old, thought it a strange
proceeding and laughed.
There was a sizzling and the
odor of burning flesh—and a stilled
groan from Johnson.
Six hours later Johnson appeared
at the East Chicago avenue station
with Feleci’s initials "V. F.” seared
in scrawing three-inch high letters
deep into his cheek.
Sometime ago. Mrs. Feleci said,

a Raging Mass of Flames
Blowing Rock, Aug. 20. —Perhaps
one of the biggest forest firds in his
tory is now' ranging in the Blue Ridge
Mountains, near Linville and Blowing
Rock. Grandfather Mountain, which
is government property and is the
scene which was proposed some time
ago for a national park, is now u rag
ing mass of flames due to t'iie fact that
there has been practically no rain in
the mountains this summer. The fire
is spreading at a terrific rate. A
strong wind tends to facilitate this.
Numerous smaller fires can be ob
served to spring up in various ad
jacent sections of the mountains. Ef
forts to fight the fire seem futtile, due
to the strong winds and general
drought. The - flames are spreading
at such a great rate that any efforts
to check them seem useless. The
only hope is for a heavy rain which
at thix time does not seem likely.
I Unless rain comes soon there is no
telling how great the loss will be!

FAVORS DIRIGIBLES FOR
FLIGHTS TO THE ARCTIC
Donald B. MacMillan Thinks Such
Crafts Are Better Than Airplanes
in the Arctic.
"Washington. Aug. 21.—UP)—Light
-1 er than air machines like tile Shen
; andoah and Los Angeles are in the
opinion of Donald B. MacMillan, the
type of craft best suited to overcome
the ice hazard that the far north pre
. sent* to the explorer.
The continually drifting ice floes,
he has radioed the National Geograpli
i ic Society, makes uncertain the laiul
. ing of heavier Phan air machines, ns
. one day a fjord may be opened, only
. to be icebound the next.
Under such conditions, he said, a
cache established by an airplane is
“not a help but a menace, but if de~
. pended upon and a plane arrives out
of fuel, destruction is certain.”
“The lighter than air machines can
do the work,” he added “and should
do it'at the earliest opportunity.”
