fire wan discovered in the engine room
at the Excelsior Oil Mill, on Depot
street. The alarm was sounded, the
firemen responded promptly and the
flames soon extinguished. The fire is
supposed to have been caused by a
lighted lantern being left in a box, in
whick was stored some oil, waste, etc.
The belting was destroyed, and the
mill had to close down until it can be
replaced. The loss will aggregate
about $600 or $000, which is covered
by insurance. Had it not been for the
efficiency of onr fire department, the
fire would have been a serious one, as
the mill had a large stock of meal,
hulls and oil in the buildings and many
bales of cotton in the yard.
At 1 o'clock Sunday morning the
buBinesspart of the prosperous little

the firms of li. P. Morris, S. E. Cowan
and W. A. Lawton were completely
destroyed. The two-story frame build
ing in which the postollico was situated
was also burnt down, but the couteuts
of tho building were sn ved. Tho iron
bars of the window at the back of
Cowan's store were found bent na if for
entrance, and this has led to thu be
lief that the tiro was incendiary. The
loss is estimated at about $0,000, partly
covered by insurance.

man and rector of Grace Episcopal
Church, Rev. W. T. Capers, who it
now rector of the Episcopal Church al

living as to the work of the othei
bishop of that name, Bishop William
Capers, the father of the present bishop
of South Carolina and the grandfather
of a prospective bishop of Mississippi.
