Fire tn South Columbia.
The "Are laddies" were given a
chance last Tuesday night to try
the new order of things in the fire
department, and everything worked
like a charm. About 1 o'clock an
alarm was sent in from South Co
lumbia, and in six minutes they
were on the scene, ready to throw
water. The flames had gained
great headway before discovered,
but, notwithstanding, part of the
house was saved. The house was
situated on Eleventh street near
Galloway, and was owned by Mr.
Gillie Ussery and occupied by Mr.
James Emmerson; at the time of
the fire, however, the family were
away from home, and only a few
articles of furniture were saved.
The house was insured with the
Mutual Reserve Fund Fire Associa
tion, of Chattanooga, which has
lately become defunct, and Insur
ance to the amount of $175 was car
ried on the furniture.
The boys say they were only 16
seconds in getting ready to go to the
fire. The new arrangements work
interestingly and save a great deal
of time. Several of the firemen
sleep at the engine house, and when
the first tap of the bell sounds, fire
man No. 1 jumps into his clothes in
less time than it takes to tell it,

Water Works Improvement
The Columbia Water & Light
Co. are making some good improve
ments in their plant. Contracts
have been made with the railroad
company to put in a tank at the
depot, and the water will be sup
plied from a smaller pipe, in order
that the pressure may not be
weakened at other poiuts on that
main. This is a much needed im
provement, as in many instances,
when engines are taking water at the
depot, the supply from fire plugs
and hydrants on the same main is
materially reduced and sometimes
entirely cut off. A new plug has
also been put in at the Athenreum,
which will protect the properties of
the Athenteum and Institute. The
work ou the new suction pipe, which
will be run above Helm's branch,
has been somewhat retarded ou
account of the recent rains, as the
pipe is being laid in the river bed.

Editor Columbia Herald: In

under "Religious News" occur two
errors in regard to my resignation as

First. My resignation will not be

This was done last Sunday morning,
Second. The statement, "111
health is the cause which prompts
Mr. Davis to take this step ' could
not be further from the truth. Such
a thought never once entered my
mind, and I write it down calmy
and deliberately that I did not re
sign because of any recognized or
supposed physical inability to per
form the duties of my office as pas
tor. I do not know where you got
the impression about my supposed
"ill health," hence I do not blame
any one for the error. Perhaps it
I expect to leave here next Mon
day for a three weeks vacation "at"

But I go for the same reason that
