THE NASHVILLE GLOBE, FRIDAY, JANUARY 14, 1&10.
FIRE IN THE HOME OF GEORGE WILLIS BURRILL, OF BROOK LYN, N. Y. Special to the Nashville Globe: Brooklyn, N. Y., Jan. 6, 1910. Fire which threatened to destroy a row of four-story double brick flats on Reid avenue, between Macon and McDo nough streets, broke out at 6 o'clock last night, and it was only after three alarms had been sent In that the Fire Department got the blaze uncle ioi. trol. The fire started in the pain., shop occupied by Morris Coewitz, at 2S0 Reid avenue, and extended into the next build'ng, causing a total loss of nearly $8,000. As early as 4 o'clock in the after noon, Mr. George Willis Burrill, who is employed by the Brooklyn Kapia Transit and lives on the first floor over the paint shop, though he smelled smoke, and went to the apartment of Mr. Titus, who lives on the same floor. Together they made an examination of the building, but fire could not be found in the house, so the searchers went into No. 284, next door. In the cellar under the store occupied by. Peter Tribeker, they came upon a man, who said he was a plumber and was thaw ing out the water pipes. According to Mr. Burrill, the man did not look like a plumber, and after the fire was discovered, three hours later, he noti fied the fire marshal, of what he had seen. Mr. Burrill was just about to leave the house, and was saying goodby to his wife when somebody yelled "Fire." He went down to see what he could do, and his wife, Mrs. Margaret Bur rill, who has just recovered from a lone illness, got out of bed, supped on a few clothes and, taking her two children, Evelyn, a year and a half old, and Margaret, less than one month, carried them down the stairs, which was by this time crowded with tenants. As she reached the street she slipped on the lev pavement and fell the two children sprawling on the street They were all picked up and taken to the home of a friend on Hancock street, where thev soent the night. Their apartments were entirely turned out, with a loss of $1,500. The second floor, which is occupied bv H. E.' Pennington, was also burned out Mrs. Pennington was at home with her four children and her sister, Miss Kate Milard, who was preparing to leave town. When the fire broke out Mrs. Pennington took two of the children, while Miss Milard took the others, and led them down stairs, which was, by this time, a mass of flames. The top floor was occupied by Harold Simpson, his wife and one child. They also made their way to safety by the stairs. Their apartment was also burned out. After the fire fighters arrived and had been at work for almost a quar ter of an hour, a second alarm was turned in. This was followed by third, two minutes later. Eating its way through the walls thp firp snvparl tn 2S4 Reid avenue This is also a double-flat house, but at the time of the fire there was only one family living in the north side of the building. John Kisslig, his wife and one child, who occupied the third floor. Their home was glutted. The cause of the fire is unknown, and ac cording to the police there is nothing suspicious about it. The people who were burned out, however, are of a dif- ferent opinion, and believe that the fire was started for the purnose of getting insurance. Mr. Geo. Willis Burrill is the son of Mr. Chas. H. Burrill, "Dean" and Sec retary of the Globe Publishing Com pany, and who was proof-reader at the National Baptist Publishing House until a few months ago, when he re turned to his home at 203 Halsey street as the result of illness. House of Nashville has our sympa thetic good wishes in all his laudable undertakings for the good of the race and the growth of the great Baptist denomination with which ho is identi fied, and in manner and style of work he is premier. We thank the good doctor for the Christmas gift of the Negro doll, a sample of which should be in every Negro home is the land, also congratulate him for the issuing of such a magnificient journal as the 'Review,' a weekly that will make its own way with the readable people of all denominations." The Freeman is a paper that for a number of years has been constantly kept before the people both as a news (journal and a high class periodical. MR. WM. KENNEDY HONORED. Mr. and Mrs. Jas.

MILLER, Prop., 714 Jo Johnston Are., Nashville, Tenn. NASHVILLE MAN HIGHLY PRAISED. This city has been said to enjoy the distinction of producing, or has living in it some of the most noted business and professional men that the race has produced. Hardly a day passes but that this fact is brought out not only in Nashville ,but in other cities by speeches, publications, or other wise. Among the recent utterances corning from a source that would be considered by all authoritative and reliable in the Freeman, an illustrated weekly journal, published at India- napoils, Ind., a clipping appears edi torially on one of Nashville s indus trious business and professional men. It was a reference to R. II. Boyd, the 1- Secretary of the National Baptist Pub lishing Board, a religious institution looking after the business side of their denominational publicational work. There is a kindly feeling toward the Freeman in this city, said a good Bap tist brother, more so now than at any other time, and that journal has for the past three or four years voluntar ily, without the knowledge or consent of those interested In the denomina tion's uplift, pointed with pride to the rapid success obtained by the Insti tution which Dr. Boyd represents. The clipping that caused some atten tion is given. "Rev. Dr. R. H. Boyd, the indomi table, irrepressible, progressive found er and manager, secretary and treas urer of the National Publishing IMPORTANT POINTS ON THE U. S. CENSUS. This information is prepared for the use of persons who have opportunities of teaching others. It is urged that ministers, teachers and lecturers on all subjects will make frequent use of these facts in impressing people with the great importance of the coming census, and in preparing them to give correct answers. This leaflet is rut in this small com Dass. so mat me speaKers may carry these facts with them as reminders of their opportunity to instruct the peo ple. 1. Thirteenth General Census or the United States will he taken beginning April 15, 1910, to be completed with in the next thirty days. 2. Great importance of learning the truth about the people of the nation, their health, their wealth, their educa tion, their homes and their general progress. Descriptions based upon the imagination and hearsay frequently do great harm. 3. United States is still primarily an agricultural country, hence the im portance of the farm schedule. 4. Crops and animal products de sired are those for 1909, while proper ty and live stock, including poultry and bees, are those on hand April 15, 1910. Possibility of error is greatest in the case of the farmer who moves on to his land in 1910. This man must learn of the crops of 1909 from the farmer who preceded. He in turn ought to tell his successor about his crops on the farm which he cultivated in 1909. 5. Note definition of a farm as the land, 3 acres and over, under the per sonal direction of the farmer. The advocacy of keeping farm rec ords for census purposes is one which will give us an entering wedge on the whole matter of keeping accounts. Through this campaign a beginning will be made toward inducing people to keep records of profits and losses a matter of great economic importance to themselves. THE "BUSY MUGGLETONIANS.
