People in H villain! couldn't xhep! without loiig disturlx-d by such n ' blaze. I A question of doubt as to the boundary line on Third street lo tween Franklin and iViain having arisen, a meeting of the city board was neceasary to settle tho questi lu'fore Mr. Gh nn nnil tho Knights ol Pylhias could safely proceed with their blocks of buildings, just com menceu on the Maiikliii corner.

Alderman JJeach presiding in the absence of Uio Mayor. This question was generally discussed and t tit board finally ordered that Marshal Stacker and EngineerThomasHhould make the proper survey and locale tho boundary lino on Third street which will bo done today. An ordinance was then introduced and passed first readi-ig del'ming va grancy. Th present vagrant law are not siit'iciently stringent to break oil a certain class who lay urotind to plan mischief.

DESTRUCTIVE FIRE. A Thief Arrested. Dry Goods and Groceries ?o Up in Smoke. McOehee Bros. Visited by the Fire fiend and Their Fine Stock of Goods Destroyed. A PATENT FENCE FAKE. Citizens Have Notes Out and Don't Know Where They Are. Several weeks ago eight men struck Clarksville selling district lights for a patent fence. They did not put it in this light, however. They wouh it lot a man territory in which to sel the fence and take his note for f 12-'i as collateral security for llienioie ho was supposed to handle for (hi company. There was a contract nisi that these notes were not to bt traded, hut were to ho held by tin company anil canceled at tho expira lion of twelve months, or when tlx persons taking territory had com plctid their ca ivass. Tho style ol the firm was 1$. L. Fletcher it Co.. and if they had any headquarter! the parties in this county who gav them notes do not know where that place is. Ii. L.

His first thought was that it was fog, and lie passed on and went to tho market house. After arriving there he eon- eluded to go to the rear of the build ing on Strawberry street to make sure the house was not on fire. Ar riving; there he found a groat column of smoke coming from the building, lie quickly gave the alarm summon ing the lire ('apartment. 15y the time the company could get a stream on the building the lire h ul spread from the grocery store to tho dry goods house, and quicker than il lakes to tell it the interior of the building was wrapped in Haines. The tire department fought man hilly, but the flam- s had too great s start and too "good material to fled upon. They writhed and hissed with such a vengeance that at one time it looked almost impossible to prevent tho entira Elder block from going uj) in smoke. liy well direct ed ellbrts, however, the tire was kept within the walls ol tho double build ing, and at -t o'clock was nearly all put out. McUohee Bros, did a largo business, having, besides a largo slock of dry goo Is, clothing, hats, boots and shoes, a large stock of groceries. For the last wook they have been receiving; their fall stock of dry goods, therefore much of the goods burned were new The value of the sto k of dry goods is placed at from :t."i,0(H) to fio.noo, while the stock of groceries is valut d at tf.siilio, making a total of from H'l.tiOO to I8,0). The entire busi ness was insured for f2!),0l)()1 ol which imoiint $21,000 is placed wilh companies represented by J no. W Faxon it Co ; fl.OOtl with Kennedy A Munford, and $1,0(10 wilh James T. Wool. Tho building in which tho dry goods store was located is the proper ty of Elder Bros. The grocery build ing be onged individually to Martin Elder. The insurance on both build ings only amounts to J0,.r)00. Th will not cover tho loss by several thousand dollars. The building occupied by I. Itosen- feld A Son, corner First and Franklin streets, is damaged to some extent. The stock ol goods in this house is greatly damagid by water and mov ing, though at present it is impossi ble toapproximatcthedamago. The loss to I. Kosenfeld it Son, hovvevtr, is completely covered by insurant". The Y. M. C. A. building, property of Elder Bros., is damaged to a cer tain extent, as is also the slock of furniture on the first lloor of the building owned by J. M. Fatherly, of Nashville. A .MOST SUl-'KOCATIOI). Bates Wall, T. C. Rollins and Inm ost Lander, employees of Mitiolne 1.1ms., were sleeping on the second tloor of the grocery building. They were awakened by smoke almost suf focating them. When they found that the bouse was on lire they rushed for the stairs, but could not go down hem for tho heat and smoke. By this time a crowd had gathered on Strawberry street and boxes were piled upon each other for tho men to jump upon from the windows Ern est Lander .made the jump without accident, but Bates Wall and T. C. I loll ins were precipitated from the boxes to thegroiind and received pain ful bruises. Bales Wall is hurt wor.-e than Mr. Rollins. He fell on his head w itli such force as to cut a long gish from which tho blood llowid freely, lie was taken to the station house where the wound uas washed and dressed by Ir. Herring.

Finn FLASH KS. Clarksville needs a partially paid lire department just a little worse than anythingelse. Thos. J I. llyman went into Me- (lehee Bros.' store and rolled out several barrels of coal oil while the house was burning. The damage to telephone wires is no small item. The siiH-rintenilent has a force ol men patching the line up to-day. McOehee Bros, have no plans mapss out for the future. It is un derstood, however, that as soon as they get n settlement wilh the insur ance companies they will okii up again. Elilcr liros. will rebuild their houses as sim n as ssille. It is the opinion of a chilirts that the front wall of the bouses wilt have to Ik' taken down and built anew. Officer Collier arrested Turner Con nell, colored, last night for stealing goods from McUohee Bros, during the firo. When caught the negro had a bolt of jeans and three umbrel las. The umbrellas were marked in plain figures from if 2 50 to f.l.(H)l The prisoner is now in jail awaiting the action of the grand jury. Omar S. Brown Heard From. Omar S.

Clarksville's fire service is credit able to the city, with an excellent engine, Ibxik it Ladder company and four hoes companies; water plugs at every corner, with sufficient force to throw five large streams over any house in the city. It is hardly possible for a Hie to get under suffi cient headway to do extensive dam age if tho fire companies can bo promptly on hand. But it is hardly expected that a volunteer company composed of men who have their every day cans and responsibilities as other people, to be constantly at their post to discharge this duty to the public. This paper has heretofore urged the necessity of a limited paid fire service; at least enough men whose whole time shall bo employed ready to respond to a tirealarinona moment warning, and every fire demonstrates its nectssity. Moreover some means of giving the alarm must be properly provided. The old cracked city hell cannot be heard outside of theshaiiow of tho market house. Some reliable alarm should tie established to bring the citizens out. The board should consider these questions immediately. Clarksville is now quite able to afford tho city with better fire protection. Our peo ple know what hs b en suffered heretore from the lack of an elllciei.t service, and they know what has been saved in later years, since we have had tho present water works service and it is evident that it will pay to perfect this service by employ ing trusty in, u to attend specially b this want, being tdways in readiness with engine, htso and everything in good condition. With much dealings wo now have, the splendid water sorvic-, and a limited paid (ire service, Clarksville could truly boast of being one of the most substantial litt'e cities in the land and such a thing-would be worth its cost as an sdvertisonu nt to t ho city.
