Death Attempting to Sava Him.
Last Sunday afternoon about 8
o'clock Vivian Galloway, twelve year

five mlli-s south of town. Young Gal
loway waa In swimming with a num
ber of other and, getting beyond bis
depth, called for aid. Walter, an
older brother, went to hi assistance
and In attempting to save hit broth
er came very near drowning himself.
The crle of Walter while attempt
ing to rescue his brother, brought his
mother to the scenes and teeing her
ton floundering around In the wa
ter, ruBhed In and succeeded In grasp
Ing him by the hand but was unable
to pull him out of the water. In her
efforts to rescue she got beyond her
depths and but for the timely ar
rival of a young man by the name
of Snodgraas would have drowned
herself, and when she waa taken oqt
of the water was unconscious.
Vivian was a son of S. J. Gal
loway of Hlllsboro who came up with
his wife and two sons to pick hops
at the yard of R. H. McCarter, who
has a yard about a mile on the oth
er side of Porterfleld's. They had
come down to the river to take a
bath. The remains were shipped Mon
day afternoon to Hlllsboro for bur
ial. In this connection, Roy Bierce, a
young man who Is In the employ of
Woods Bros, as a hop dryer, Is de
serving of much praise for the hero
ism he displayed In diving down and
securing the body of the drowned
boy In about nine feet 'of water in
an eddy where there was a strong
under current' . Bierce was at work
In the yard of Woods Bros at the
time of the acident , and when the

run for the scenes of the accident
and never stopped until he reached

ter and helped to locate the body
and ' dove for It, getting it the sec
ond attempt. V

and have a large circle of friends
who sympathize with them' in this
their hour of sorrow. ' .

SALEM HAS A
Many of our citizens will regret to
learn that the magnificent depart
ment store of J. L. Stockton at Sa
lem was partially destroyed by fire
last Tuesday night.
The fire broke out about 10; 45 and
did damage to the stock and build
ing estimated at about $60,000. The
origin of the fire is not known but
the supposition is that it was caused
by a cigar stub dropped through a
grating on Commercial street and
falling through an open window into
the fixture room. Mrs. O. C. Locke,
who conducted the millinery depart
ment, was hit hardest by the fire.
She had everything in readiness -for
a grand opening on Wednesday and
plans had been laid for a particu
larly splendid exhibit of goods. The
loss on her goods is about $4000, hav
ing an insurance on them of only
about half that amount Mrs. Locke
is a daughter of L. Damon of this
city. The loss on the building was
fully covered by insurance while Mr.
Stockton carried only $19,000 on his
stock. The store will be closed for
a short time in order to give the in
surance adjuster time to adjust the
