At the power house the pump was
immediately started and it added
pressure to the stream.
Just hqw the fire originated seems
to be a mystery. Mr. Bishop says that
no one had been in the loft since
early in the morning, and he does not
know how the fire started. It is pos

There was a number of horses and

House and Barn.-No Insur
Mr. John Henry Chappell lost a
four room dwelling and a new barn
-by fire early Friday morning. The
two buildings were about three hun
dred yards apart, and both burned
at the same time. The dwelling was
not occupied, but Mr. ChappeR had
about three thousand bundles of fod
der in it. The barn was a new build
ing not yet completed.
'Mr. Chappell says there was no one
around the dwelling the day before
and no fire about it. But even if it
had been set on fire accidentally by
some one smoking, it is not possible
that the saine could have been the
case in the barn, as it was being
built out of green timber, and could
not have easily ignited, and it was
too far from the dwelling to have
caught from it, and besides, both
buildings were burning at the same
Mr. Chappell estimates the house
as worth one thousand dollars and
barn had salready cost him over three
hundred dollars, not counting any
thing for the work which he was do

about $75.00. There was no insur
. Mr. Chappell is satisfied that it was
the wrok of an incendiary.
Something ought to be done to ap
prehend the guilty party or parties.
The fire was discovered about one
o'clock in the night.
lOnly on the 24th of August, Mr.
Chappell had the misfortune to lose
his barn near h-i dwelling house by
fire, in which he lost, besides the
building, a considerable amount of
food stuff. At that time Mr. tChap
pell had insurance on the barn of
$150.00 with the Farmers' Mutual
Insurance Company of Newberry
County, and $250.00 in an old line
company. In the barn that was de
stroy.d in August Mr.' Chappell lost
considerable. The policy in the old
line company was paid promptly, but
the Farmers' Mutual refused to pay,
because of a clause in their policy
which prohibited any other insur
ance, and if any is writtei, provide
that -their policy shall be null and
'Mr. Chappell says that -he had
never nofieed any such elause in the
policy, and had ,been paying the as
sessments regularly, as .called for
when other losses occurred, and that
he had been carrying this policy for
seven or eight years. That he had
paid two or three assessments during
this year, and just before his fire iri
