INCENDIAEIES SUSPECTED IN
The one and one-half story frame
residence on Nineteenth street, oc
cupied by Elmer Wilhoit, was badly
damaged by riVe at a late hour Mon
day night. The fire department was
summoned by an alarm from Box
35, and upon arriving found the
"house a mass ot flames. The depart
ment by hard work kept the blaze
confined to the roof and the rear ot
the building, but considerable dam
age was done to the remainder by
:fire, smoke and water. The firemen
were assisted by the neighbors in
saving the greater part of the con
tents. The building belonged .to W. J.
Kenton. The family was away from
home at the time the fire was dis
covered. The origin of the fire is
-unknown, but is thought to have
been the work of incendiaries, as
several suspicious "circumstances de
veloped later to strengthen the the
ory advanced by the firemen. The
blaze was first discovered by Mrs.
C. M. Brown, wife of a Louisville
& Nashville conductor, who had just
returned from Cincinnati on a late
train and was preparing to retire.
Mr. Wilhoit, who is connected
with the Rawleigh Medicine Co..
had a stock of goods, valued at
about $1,000, the loss on which was
covered by insurance. His loss on
goods and household effects was' es
timated at about $1,500, fully cov
ered by insurance. The loss on
the house was estimated at $1,200,
with no insurance.
