According to Dooley's account, the ship struck on a wreath at 6:15 o’clock last night and broke in two a few minutes later, the after pdrt of th© ship sinking, taking about thirty men down with it. A score of the crew of fifty-one were still unaccounted for early today. After the ve ssel broke in two ten or twelve of the survivors succeeded in reaching the shore in life boats, Capt.

Already the supplies of all the great eastern centers of production are approaching exhaustion, with the exception of the South, and even there most of the mills have not over IO to 15 years’ supply of , virgin timber. Already the southern pine is being withdrawn from many points as a competitive factor and its place taken by western timbers. This inevitably results in added freight charges, which the consumer _ among them. They drifted about all Thursday night and, must pay. most of yesterday. On attempting.

GEN. piSnO LAY I E Read This and Govern Yourselves Accordingly Monday morning you will be permitted to make a donation for local charities for 1920. A committee will see you and give you the opportunity to help. The committee is trying to raise a monthly budget of $500.00 for purposes of local charity. They are asking the citizens to subscribe whatever ”    \    a lay see fit to be paid quarterly in advance. This money is to be spent at home. It is being raised to help ihe unfortunate of Ada. We have been paying *200.00 a month for this work, and it is not enough. It is thought that $500.00 a month will be adequate. We have been paying 2 cents per capita. This campaign seeks to raise the amount to o cents per capita. The charity work of Ada has been centralized. The United Charities has been merged with the executive committee of the Red Cross. This committee will have general supervision of charity. Rev. S. B. Damron will continue as field agent of the work. Mrs. Orville Sneed will be secretary and treasurer of the work. Every penny contributed *ii spent at home under the direction of home folks and accurately accounted for. The campaign of Monday will be under the general supervision of R. W. Simpson. There will be a manager for each ward. These managers will Ward!, A. M. Gregg; Ward 2, Max Levin; Ward 3, John Chapman; Ward 4, F. L. Finley. Each of these managers will have a soliciting com-mittee for his ward. These committees will see you Monday morning after 9 o’clock. This states the case and it is up to you. The need of this money is not guess work. Experience has taught the imperative t Yd of this amount. The work is here to be done.
