1 VOL. XVI. SEQUACHEE, TENN., THURSDAY, DECEMBER 10, 1908 NO. 23. K i'i 44 r I J i ' i BUSINESS SECTION OF SEWANEE BURNED Students Do Heroic Work in Saving the Postoffice. Small Insurance. SEWANEE, Temi., Dec. 2. -The business section of Sewanee was almost entirely wiped out by a fierce fire this morning at an early hour. The fire originated in the store of Bates & Sneed at about 10 h. m. and before help could arrive it gained such head way that the buildings occupied by Rosebough & James and Preston 8. Brooks, in addition to two smaller structures, were burned to the ground. The los is roughly estimated at $16. 000, while the insurance carried is said to be less than half that amount. When the alarm was given the entire student body of the aniversity, togeth er with a number of the academy boys and citizens of the town, rushed to the aM of the unfortunate merchants. A nmk north wind was blowing, and in less than an hour after the fire was discovered the buildings were in a smouldering ruin, with practically all the stock they contained. The heroic work of the students, however, saved the building occupied by the express company and the postoffice, in addi tion to saving a portion of the stock carried in the store of Preston Brooks. The building occupied by Rosebor ough & James and Preston Brooks was recently purchased by W. S. Davis, .of Nashville for $4,500, and it is stat ed by responsible parties on the moun tain that he carried a policy for only $2,000. Monteagle. Special to the News.

The school exhibition at Victoria Friday evening was a very creditable affair and showed that the teachers. Misses Grace Hamilton and Lula Locke, of McMinnville, had been fully awake to the duties of their position. Unfortunately for thosj who came to see and hear, the audience had not sat down when the program commenced, and as one man disgustedly remarked, kept getting higher and higher until a goodly portion were standing on top of the desks to get a squint at things. It was the most elevated function we ev er attended, but the exercises were ex cellent.

Darr, don't jOn know that prov ision is made for only one high school in a county one good school, we moan and as Sequaohee is bidding for the school, let the good people of that town have it. They trade extensively with our merchants, and the little im petus such a school would give that place commercially would be also felt here.
