House Owned By Mr. H. D. Barnett
From the Daily Item January 10,
A house belongrjpg to Mr. H. D.
Barnett on Warren street and occu?
pied by Rev. Matthew Small was dis?
covered to be on fire about 12 o'clock
today. The tire apparently originated
m the roof, which was covered with
shingles made of very fat pine, and it
burned with great rapidity. Dense
clouds of black smoke were coming
from the house when the fire depart?
ment arrived. - Three streams were
turned on the building, and by hard
and persistent work the lower portion
of the dweiling was saved, though the
roof was almost entirely destroyed.
Mr, Barnett showed his appreciation
of the prompt and -afficient work ren?
dered by the firemen by presenting
each.team with a check for $25.00.
The house was fully covered by in?
surance in the Sumter Insurance
Agency. The furniture and other
property of Rev. and Mrs. Small was
damaged by water.
Mrs. Wilkes Guthrie was painfully
burned at Gaffney Tuesday while sav?
ing her little daughter whose clothing
had caught on fire. Both the mother

A Thousand Dollars Worth of Good.
?A. H. Thurnes, a well known coal
operator of Buffalo, O., writes: "I
have been afflicted with kidney and
bladder trouble for years, passing
gravel and stones with excruciating
pain. I got no relief from medicine
until I began taking Foley's Kidney
Cure, then the result was surprising.
A few doses started the brick dust
like fine stones and now I have no
pain across my kidneys and I feel like
a new man. It has done me $1,000

?Before we can sympathize with
others, we must have suffered our?

fering attendant upon an attack of
grip, unless he has had the actual ex?
perience. There is probably no dis?
ease that causes so much physical and
mental agony, or which so successful?

the grip, however, may be avoided by
the prompt use of Chamberlain's

thousands who have used this remedy,
not one case has ever been reported
