About 5 o'clock Wednesday morn
ing the shoo shop of Geo. L. Kennedy
on tho west side of Military 6tree't was
discovered to be on fire. The doors
were all securely locked and the build
ing being small and the fire all on the
inside nothing could be got out of it
The building was made principally of
corrugated iron aud adjoined L. Beck's
two-storv business house ou the south.
The entire outfit of several sets of cob
bier's tools, two good sewing machines
and other property and goods belong'
inar to Mr. Kennedy and valued at
about $600 wero entirely destroyed.
He held policies npon them to the
amount of $300. Tho building be
longed to J. A. Hunter aud was valued
at $200.
The origin of the fire is a mystery
as Mr. Kennedy had been ill for sev
eral days previous and was not work
ing in the shop, ne says he was there
Tuesday about sundown and securely
locked the doors and fastened the win
dows down. The back door lock was
a very common one and might easily
have been unlocked with a small key.
Mr. Lttdlum says he 6aw a light in the
back room of tho shop about 9:30
Tuesday evening and the supposition
is that some of tho boy hoodlums
about town picked the lock, went in
and played cards or something of the
kind until daylight and ' in some way
accidentally left, a cigar or match so
that the building was fired.
The loss falls quite heavily upon Mr.
Kennedy and furthermore it is the
third time ho has been burned out in
this city, but before his losses were not
so heavy
A good ono is told on John Osborn
about a little play on the morning of
the fire in which he took the part of
leading tragedian. John and his
brother James sleep over the grocery
store and when they beard the cry of
fire John sprang out of bed and imme
diately went out of the upper window
onto the awnins. The window was
heavy aud closed tightly behind him
The fire was burning at the south end
of the awning and in the abbreviated
attire in which he had slept (common
ly known as a shirt) John ran heavily
back and forth across the awning
a few times while revolving in h
mind what to do. Then h1
thought he would so in, but the
window was too heavy. He called to
Jim, but no reply. Great Scott, had
he gone, and left him locked out? He
called louder no reply. Then ho did
yell, Jim came to the rescue and the
curtain fell.
Evangelist F. D. Pettit, who has
been holding meetings of the Christian
denomination here for the past five
weeks, has secured forty new members
and worked up a great amount of en
thusiasm in the work of the church.
Since our last issue the following
named persous have joined and been
baptized in accordance with the rules
of the church : Miss Pitkin, Samuel
H. Smith aud wife, Tarrcnce Connor,
Lyman Coloman, Jennie Clark, U. T.
Gaba, Mrs. John Clark, Mrs. Joseph
Stein, Miss Nast, Dora lveunison,
Nannie Price, Emma Easley, Mrs.
John Harper. Several others have
joined who had been baptized before
and a number moro will do immersed
Suuday afteruoon. A movement is
being made looking to the erection of
a church house, which will probably
be erected within a year.
Phil. Pfenning says that Joplin now
is a silver ore reduction and smelt
ing works for which 500 tons of silver
ore is ociug snipped irom uoiorauo
mines and he believes the Missouri
Pacific company will soon build the
Joplin-Chetopa extension in order to
secure a portion of this freight which
will be an almost constant source or
income (or east and west roads from
now ou. If the Missouri Pacific
should put in this link it would then
have much the shorter line from the
Colorado silver mines to Joplin and he
thinks the company now realizes that
it will be to their interest to build iu
John Rosen berry, Chas. Franks and
John French, who have been confined
