DWELLING' HOUSE BIURNED.
Sunday ifternoon Fire Destroys Resi,
dence of 3ir. W. A. Graddick.
On Sunday afternoon about 1.30
o'clock, the residence of Mr. W. A.
Graddick, near Mollohon mill, was
completely destroyed by fire. The
building is estimated as being worth
$1,100. The insurance on the buildingl
is $800, and on the furniture, $300, car
ried in the agency of the Security Loan
and Investment company.
The fire department responded
promptly to the call, but by the time
they reached the fire, the building was
so far gone that it was impossible to
eave it. Of course, the adjoining
buildings were saved. The depart
ment had to lay about 700 feet of hope I
and secured water fron the Mollohon
mill as the closest town hydrant is at
the corner of Johnstone and Glenn
streets. The fire boys say the pres
sure from the Mollohon mill is better
than that of the city.
Mr. Graddick and his family had
left home during the morning and
were visiting friends in West End
when the fire occurrd. Mr. Jno.
Graddick, who lives near by, was the
first to discover the fire and he said
it was blazing up and had good head
way from a closet when -he reached
the house. There was no fire in the
closet, of course, and it is supposed
that ra-ts struck a'match and the fire
originated in this way.

has been taking the paper and paying

which time the paper has been senr

had been a paying subscriber all those
years that it would be sent to him thel
remainder of his life with the cornpli I

the only one we now have on that roll

BURR LEITZSEY IN THE STORM.
He Retired at 1.15, But Was Up Lead
ing in Song and Prayer Fifteen
Mr. B. B. Leitzsey came home from
Charleston on Saturday morning to
spend Sunday at. his home in this coun
ty. Mr. Leitzsey's many friends here
haMs been very much interested in his
graphic descriptions of the terrific
hurricane which- swept Charleston on
Sunday night, August 27, and Mr.
Leitzsey did not tire in satisfying their
Mesgrs. Tom, Marion and Will Wick
er, of Newberry, who were in Char
leston the night of the storm, came
home a:ul told that Mr. Leitzsey sang
hymns while the wind was at its
height. Mr. Leitzsey says that not on
ly is this true, but that he led in the
singing, and all the others in the house
joined -n beartily, and then each for
himself or herself offered as fervent
and sincere prayers as they ever of
fered in their lives.
Mr. Leitzsey was at his lodging
place, 139 Calhoun street, opposite
Marion Square, where the Citadel Is
located. He did not get to Meeting
street for supper on Sunday night of
the storm, it being dangerous to use
the streets even so early in the even

those in the house, including Messrs.
Will and Marion Wicker, stayed to

had gone out early in the evening to
visit some friends and was unable to
About 11.15, says Mr. Leitzsey, It
was decided that those in the house
would retire and seek a little rest.
He and Mr. "Field" Coleman went to
their room. Th6 wind continued to
roar. At 11.30 he arose, and called
over to Mr. Coleman telling him that
he couldn't go t6 sleep and was going
down-stairs. Mr. Coleman, he says,
told him he had already made up his
mind to do the same thing.
Mr. Leitzsey led the way down into
the parlor, and was soon joined by the
others in the house, including the
landlady. He began -to sing "The Old,
Old Story," but some of the others
didn't know it very well, and he struck
uip "Nearer, My God,,to Thee," a song
known by everybody, and sung right
heartily by everybody in that house
that night, says Mr. Leitzsey. Then
same the prayers, each, homver, do
Eng his own praying.
The house is a four-story -building,
and Mr. Leitzsey said he wished ev

d1e was up at the office in Society

wvould have b'een from other build

iimself-at least, he says it is a joke;
be others say it is true. Shortly be
ore the rpof was taken off the house,~
mne of the gentlemen in the party sai
o Mr. Leitzsey:
"If I had a drink, I declare I believe
would take it.".
Mr. Leitzsey answered:
"No, you wouldn't, because I wpbuld
l't let you, in such a time as this."
In about a minute, the wind picked

"If you had two drinks, I would take
one with youi,'' the others say Mr.
aeitzsey said. It is well known that
Ir. Leitzsey is a teetotaler,. and he

hat the gentleman who says he did
ay it proved his assertion next morn
ag by every one who was in the house.

them know that .he was safe.' It was
a good many hours before he could get
