    Adams Shop Destroyed.

     

    Fire destroyed the old Adams shop on north College street, Monday night at 7 o'clock. It was owned by Oscar Eskew, who had no insurance. Al Easley used it as a stable for his stock during the day, but usually took the stock home with him at night, and this he did Monday night, no stock being in the shop when the fire broke out. Mr. Easley had some feed and straw also some lumber in the building which was all burned, and on which, we understand, he had a small insurance.

    SAM GUGENHEIM A FARMER

    Well Known Capitalist Buys The Eskew Farm.

     

    Two deals were consumated [sic] last week which we think are of vast importance to Crittenden county and her farmers. One was the purchase by Sam Gugenheiem [sic], the well-known merchant, of the Eskew farm of 200 acres, 2 miles west of Marion, on the Salem road, and the second was the leasing of said farm to J. Robt. Bird, the county farm demonstrator, who will make a demonstration farm out of it and endeavor to show our Crittenden county farmers by new methods that our land can be built up and made to produce double what much of it does produce now under old methods. We regard this as a fortunate deal all around.

     

    Mr. Gugenheim having the capital which he is always willing to put into a safe proposition saw at a glance the bargain to be had in this farm under Mr. Bird's control. We look for 100 per cent. enhancement in this property within a couple of years.

    Good Woman Badly Scalded.

     

    Mrs. Oscar Eskew is in a serious condition at her home here. While taking a tub of boiling water from the stove her feet slipped and she fell, receiving the contents of the tub all over her lower limbs scalding herself quite badly. Her burns, while serious are not dangerous unless complications arise, which on account of the extreme heat are not unlikely. Wednesday at noon Dr. Cook reported her condition favorable.

    The Pop-Corn Popper Popped.

     

    Billy Eskew was painfully burned last week when a popcorn popper he was operating exploded, blistering his face in several places pretty severely. The accident came near causing him to lose an eye. Billy says some boy turned on the gasoline while he was gone to dinner and that caused an explosion the moment he lighted the lamp. Fortunately Billy was not fatally burned. Boys should keep their hands off things not their own.
