Fire of Unknown Origin Burns Out
Two Business Houses and Two
Residences on N. Main St.
GAME NEAR BEING LARGER.
Last Friday night, just before
midnight, the fire alarm whistle
called the fire fighters from their
downy beds of ease, to fight a
stubborn blaze which had broken
out in the Pierce produce brick
building on north Main street.
The building was occupied by C.
R. Njwcom, Grocery and Produce
dealer on the ground floor
andSValentine Threlkeld's colored
barber shop up stairs, also the
colored Lodge and sleeping
rooms. Opinions differ as to
where the fire started, some say
it originated up stairs, others
downsians. The produce building
was scon a mass of flames
and quickly gutted and the
flames leaped to the large frame
stable owned by Pierce & Son and
occupied by Eskew Bros, and
extended the entire length of the
block on the south and to John
B. Grissom's residence on the
north, both of which were quickly
devoured. The fire then
seized for its prey McConnell'd
frame building on the south and
Seldon Hughes' house on the
north occupied by S. S. Woodson
and both were soon reduced to
ashes. Tins grocery stock of C.
R. Newcorn and, in fact, all the
contents of the brick produce
house were lost, but all the live
stock and harness, and most of
the feed and vehicles in the stable
were saved. The people
turned out well and helped the
poor sufferers save their household
goods, and but little furniture
was lost. A telephone pole
which burned down came near
striking City Marshal Loyd and
had it done so he would have
been instantly killed. He dodged
sufficiently to miss the pole
but the cross arm hit his leg, almost
breaking breaking the bone
and he wa3 scratched considerably
by the wires. He was assisted
to an empty buggy standing
near and two townsmen grasped
the shafts and drew him to his
home where he has since been
confined to his bed and where his
physicians say he must remain
for ten days longer. Thos.
McConnell, the merchant, received
a severe cut over his eye and
there were several others who
narrowly escaped injury. Fred
Hughes, colored, came near being
roasted alive in his bed.
Before the carnival of the fire
was checked the money loss was
heavy; Pierce & Son, stable,
$4000, insurance, $1000. J. P.
Pierce, producequse, $4000, insurance,
$2000. J. B. Grissom,
residence, $1500, insurance $900.
Seldon Hughes, residence, $900,
insurance, $500. W. T. McConnell
store room, no insurance.
C. R. Newcorn, loss on stock and
fixtures, $2000, insurance $1500.
The Marion Electric Light &
Ice Co., suffered the loss of much
service wire, several poles and
other item. As soon- as- the Li
wires burned into, the plant was
closed down until the section in
volved could be cut out, after
which service was resumed in all
other parts of the city, with an
intermission of only one hour.
As, soon a3 material could bej
hauled op from the company's
depot the repairs were rushed
and completed in 12 hours from
