Edgefield Depot itt Ashes
About 9:30 o'clock ou Saturdav
night last the church bells rung,
humau voices yelled, gatliug guns
roared and the mill whistle bellow
ed, all of which formed a medley
in the form of a fire alarm. The
depot was ou fire, having been set,
presumably, by electricity during
the terrific thunder storm. Only'
a very short time before the fire
was discovered thoBe residing nesr
heard several very sharp and loud
peals of thunder, the lightning
striking seemingly at or near the
depot. So far as can be determin
ed the building caught near the
battery where all of the telegraph
wires uuite. It is very improbable
that it was the act of robbers or
incendiaries for those first t ) arrive
on the scene found the building
buming on the inside and all door*
and windows securely fasteued as
they were leftjan hour before.
The loss to the Southeru railroad
will be very heavy uuless it car
ried a large ammount of iusurauce
on the contents of the building.
Mr. C. J. Derrick, the agent, states
by way of rough estimate, that the
depot contained 12 or 15 thousand
dollars worth of freight. As all
books and reoords were destroyed
it will be ?lome time before the act
ual value of the coutents can be as
certained. At this late hour there
was but little steam iu the boiler
sf the locomotive, therefore it was
impossible to save all of the cars
on the track. One freight car and
contents, 200 sacks of guauo, were
totally destroyed and two other
cars were badly damaged. There
was only one bale of cotton on the
platform and it was saved.
This unfortunate catastrophe
must be numb red among those
which occasionally occur and
which no human powt^^could
avert. Ha,ving iburned-onliie^Lr~
