Texas, Puwea Through < 1t> on Way
Thursday afternoon at the paa
senger station there was one old
Veteran of the Confederate War who
kept a large crowd of returning vet

abundant good hurmor and talktive
ness. This gentleman was Mr. Wil?
liam Brlce Johnson of HUlsboro, j
Texaa, who was on his way from Ma
con, where he had been in attend?
ance upon the Annual Confederate
Reunion, to see hie daughter, Mrs.
Richard Mason, of Bishopville, for
the first time in 10 years,
Mr. Johnson was horn in Perry
County. Ala., in is:;.;. He was during
the war a member <>t Company B.
12th Texas Calvary, in Parson's Bri?
gade. While at the station "Mr. John?
son, who Is extremely tall and slim
and has a manner of attracting every?
body to him. toid numerous anec?
dotes ef his war time experiences, of
things that happened at reunions
and, as all were told in a humorous
vein and excellent style, his hearers
were very much pleased with him
and were only too i?orry whef the
time came for them to pull out, or if
tiny stayed until the last, when his
train left the station. He little
showed the effects of his seventy-six
years, hut showed up clearly that
spirit which stood him so well dur?
ing the dark days of the war and
which in the Southern 'Soldier has
been honored nil over the world,
Mr. Johnson will visit for sono
time at Bishopville and then stay i
Bumter a short time before returning
to his home in Hillsboro, Texas.

Saturday afternoon two alarms of
Are were turned in from different
placee almost simultaneously, one lire
was at the residence of Mr. M. 13.
Park ham, corner of Salem and
ii itnpton avenues and tin- other at
Mr. Qeo. i>. Shore's barn.
Th. tire at Mr. Park ham's residence
turned out to be a big one, the whole
of the upper story and roof of the
building being q mass of flame when
the hose wagons arrived on the
Scene. There w as some hi n ? to
get out the lines of ho.se, hit.mi them
to the hydrants and Stoamel and send
tb?- streams of water upon the roof
of the building. This was done,
however, in short order by the fire?
men and it was not long before the
two men in c harge of the nozzles had
all that they could do to hold the
stream of hose steady. A third line
was run from the hydrant on the cor?
ner of Haskell street and with these
c < mblned lines it was ont long before
the tire was under control. The ad?
jacent residence occupied by Mr. C.
H. Dorn was badly scorched on one
sale, but never caught afire.
All of the upper story of the resi?
dence was burned off and much
damage was done to most of the low?
er story by the fire, smoke and water.
While- most Of the furniture down?
stairs was saved, almost all of that
up-Stalrs was lost in the fire. The?
fire started f?-..-n some unvuown cause.

building. The building and furniture
