of .1 \V Odom and \Y IO Poole
wore burnell on last Thursday
morning about o'clock, the loss
is severe. The houses were owned
by Mr K \Y Goodwin, loss about
81 100.00. The lire is unknown
how it was started. Mr .1 \Y
Odom was in Robeson county at
the time of the lire and Mr Poole
was out at his fathers to spend tho
night. Tho loss falls heavy oh
these young mon. Mr Odom had
some insurance but? do aol know
whether it is good ol' not. Mr
Peele bad some insurance, but af
tho lull amount of their policies
are paid they will lose $1000 each.
Mr Odom's safe was not locked
and and ho lost all his books and
accounts with $150 worth of school
books, ^the property ol' tho public
schools, also he had in his safe tho
vere on him but on others also.
Mr ( So?dwin had money in his
safe that Mr ( Mom had collected
for him on his ginnery account to
tho amount of about $05.00. Pub
lie opinion is that it was sol on

Odom and Mr Peile were not at

It looks like that the recent losses
to Mr Goodwin come on matty
sides. Only a few days ago his
mill dam was washed.out, then it

now comos the loss of two stores
without any insurance at all. Tho
