The evidence which was offered
during the trial of Nichols and

from the congested condition of the

CONVENTION BUlLlftNG BURNED.
Connie Maxwell Orphanage Suffers by
Fire but Funds Raised to Rebuild.
Greenwood, Der I?The- conven
tion building, a handsome two-story
building at tho Connie Maxwell or
phanage, was completely destroyed by
Uro shortly after noon today. Fortu
nately all the Inmates were out of the
bill! *..ng being at school, but every i
piece of their clothing was burned up
in the building. The home was oc
cupied by hoys from the ages of s to
I 2 years.
When discovered Ute fire was on
the roof of the Im idin:-' and had made
such headway thai there was no hope
of saving it. Mrs. C. C. McDaniel,
the matron, and her assistant. Miss
Sherwood, were the only occupants
of the building, and they were en
gaged in cooking dinner for the boys
at the time the tire was discovered.
The building cost $1.000 when
erected eight years ?tgo. and would
cost $;">,000 to replace. Two thousand
dollars Insurance was carried.
An interesting coincidence is that
the buildittg bud its inception in a
motion made by Rev. W. B. Oliver,
then pastor at Florence, that the Bap
tist Slate convention then In session
in Greenville in 1902, raise the money
then and there for a new building
and that the building thus set tired
should be but tied down eight years
after while the, convention was in ses
sion. Still 'more peculiar It burned
down while Superintendent .lamleson
was engaged in the very act of mak
ing his report to the convention.
Supplies of Clothing for the hoys
will be welcomed and are coming in
from towns now.

started at once to rase funds neces
sary for its rebuilding In a very
short while $4.000 had been pledged,
which, together With the $2,000 in

building promptly.?The State.
