- BAKERY BURNED..
On Sunday night, between twelve
and one o'clock, Mr. G. A. White's
bakery was discovered to be on fire.
The batkery was a double frame house
joat back ot Mr. White's dwelling, and
was very near several frame buildings,
and tharc was great danger of the fire
spreading. The fire companies re
spomged very promptly to th? alarm
and splendid work. The fire wa~s ex
ti,.nri=hed t,efore :ha flames could
spre~ad and only one-half ot the house
was burned. No one was in the bakery
at the time, but it is supposed that the
fire originated from the explosion of
a kerosene stove which had been
lighted at eight o'clock. About thir
teen. barrels of flour were lost. Those
livios near the fire were packed and
ready to move out, as it was not
thonght possible to prevent the fire
fro.u s,reading. The firemen deEerve
great credit for their splendid work.
A RR ESTED FOR EMBEZZLEMIENT.
Mr. J C. P. Williams, postmaster
at Ridgewa. , was arrested on Friday
by DThputy U. S. Marshal Thornton :0n
the cuerge of embezzlement. Wil
hisms is charged with appropriating
$88 to this own use. For some time
past ttbe people of Ridgeway have
been suspecting Wiilliams of dishonesty
and 'r. p-ostffice inspector has paid
severs visits to the office lately for
the purpose of finding ont the truth.
Williams was taken before Commis
sionen Jennings in Columbia and gave
a $500 bond and was released. The
case will come up before the United
States Supreme Court in April. Wil
liams was appointed postma;ter when
McKinley became president, and is a
Republican. He was postmnaster at
Ridgew ay several years ago and gave
perfect satisfaction then, but since he
