(Special.) | Friday. June 13. 1913, has . passed, and with it Alexander City's “hoodoo ' is gone again. Observant readers, and especially the insurance world, will easily recall that yesterday, Friday, was the eleventh an niversary from the date when this city was totally destroyed in all its business parts. Including to nice dwellings. And ijrgatn; with some reflection, it Is recalled that i] years ago wdven this c ity was de stroyed. tin* lire broke out at I o'clock i». m., and the day was Friday'. June 13. Who can wonder that every business man in Alexander City all day Friday would fefu.se to discuss the fatal day, but with,the significant wag of the head w hen the subject was mentioned, would give a look or suggestion that every one wished to breathe ar sigh of relief when Hie day wus gone, and not again hear that awful sound—the fire whistle. If is said that the lire department, everyone of them, had his fighting cap and trousers hang ing on the very neatest peg to him all day. It was onee suggested to have the fire alarm sounded just to see the boys move, hut another wisp man said tin* man who pulled that fire eord in order to make a false alarm would he taken hv the pop ulaee and mobbed, in his opinion. In 1911!, on June 13, Alexander City sus tained a loss of about 9400,000, with only $145,000 of Insurance to offset. If the same part of this town should today be destroyed, as completely as it was then, flu* loss now would aggregate right at $J,000.,900, This comparison is merely given to show the recuperating power of the people of this town.
