FIRE SUNDAY MORNING.
The fruit and grocery store ' of
Messrs. Williams & Patton, on North
street, was demolished by fire early
Sunday morning at 3 o'clock. It is
supposed the fire originated from the
explosion of a large kerosene lamp,
which) is left burning in the front of
the store. While the building is dam?
aged to only a small extent, the stock
almost a total loss, the unburned
portion being so badly damaged as to
.render it unsalable.
Fortunately for these young men
they ibad but recently taken out in?
surance, as they were apprehensive
of the safety of their stock with the
Christmas supply of fireworks in the
store. The stock was valued at from
I $1,200 to $l,30?, and the- amount of
the insurance policy is but $800.
