Two Stores Burned ?\nd Loss is
Heavy Other Matters.
Brightsvillc, May I 1-The stores
of d W Odom aiid NV K Pecio
Were burned on last Thursday
morning about o'clock, the loss
is severe. Tho houses were owned
by Mr K \Y Goodwin, loss about
? $ \ 100.00. The lire is unknown
! how it was started. Mr ,1 NV
Odom was in Robeson county at
tho time of the lire and Mr Poole
was out at his fathers to spend the
night. Thc loss falls heavy on
these young mon. Mr Odom had
some insurance but do not know
whether it is gooder not. Mr
Poole had some insurance, but af
the full amount ol' their policies
uro paid they will lose $1000 each.
Mr Odom's safe was not locked
and and he lost all bis books and
accounts willi S I 50 worth of school
books, jl 1 io property ol' thc public
schools, also lu? had in his sale tho
VOl'? OU him but on others also.
Mr Goodwin had money in his
safe that Mr < Mom had collected
for him on his ginnery account to
thc amount of about &05.00. Pub
lic opinion is that it was set on
lie hy someone who knew thal Mi'
Odom and Mr l'eelo wen? not at
home. Ii wits .hard work to save
thc mill house as it caught on the
roof and had to bc fotighl by pour
ing water on the roof by knock

It looks bk?' thal thc recent losses j
?to Mr Goodwin come on many
sides. Only a few days ago his
mill dam was washed out, then a
severe lire in bis line timber, and
now conies the loss of two stores
without any insurance at all. Tho
cutir? community sympathize with
them in their loss.
