Suffers Fire Loss
Wednesda) afternoon about 2:38
o'clock a fire alarm wuh occasioned
by the discovery of a fire in tho Bap
tist church building The fire de
partment responded promptly and
within a few mluiitos the water had
been turned on effectively, and but
for the promptness, coolness and ef
fective work of tho lire company, un
der the control of Chief Cllne, the
handsome church edifice and mod
ern Sunday School plant would have
been a total loss. .
Damage from tin- fire, water and
smoke cannot lie estimated at this
time, and only the adjustments of
agents will be able to figure accu
rately the damage sustained.
Insurance amounting to $16,500, car
ried by the agencies of Mayor Mc
Kee and John H. Blount, was distrib
uted as follows: On the building, $13,
000; on the furniture, $1,000, and on
the plpo organ, $2,500. It is tho opin
ion of the church custodians that the
loss is fully covered by insurance.
Rev. Olus Hamilton's loss of books
and furniture in the church library
Is estimated at $2,500, with insurance
of only $300. Tho loss Is total.
It was the opinion of the custodian
of the church that the building was
as near fireproof as it was posslblo
to mako it. The actual cause of the
fire is unknown.
As soon as adjustments have been
made the church , house will be rap
idly restored to Its former beauty,
and the organ and furniture will un
dergo repairs as well.

benefit to the stato as a whole.
