A Heavy Loss.
The cozy, two-story home of John
Stroud, near the Schlotzhauer place
in the Bluff City school district, was
entirely destroyed by fire about noon,
Wednesday, November 30.
Mrs. Stroud was alone in the home
with two of her little grandchildren
at the time, and before the fire was
discovered a large portion of the sec
ond story was in flames. She imme
diately went upstairs with water and
made a desperate effort to get control
of the fire, and to save the little ones,
which she succeeded in doing, but not
until she had burned her face in a
frightful manner. Dr. Proud was
called and dressed the wounds.
Mrs. Stroud has no idea how the
fire originated. All the contents of
the upper story were destnyed with
the house; the lower story furnish
ings were saved. The loss will reach
$1,200 with no insurance.

A very sad accident occurred last
Saturday evening, Nov. 2(5, at the
home of A. M. Sloan. Hearing a dis
turbance among the chickens, John
picked up his gun and went to see
about it. He opened the door, and
as he stepped out, he fired. As he
fired, Ed Gooey stepped in range of
the vshot, receiving the load in his
riglit arm, below the elbow. Drs.
Kdatney and Carson were called at
oneei-,-Ed Gooey, the man who was
sh'dtv'had gone to Mr. Sloan's fqr
some potatoes. They had looked f$p
iiim&in' the afternoon, but as it v,
aboiitTT "o'clock "they had given him
lip. It is certainly an unfortunate
affair. Later Mr. Gooey is doing
nicely. It proved to be a severe llesh
wound. We learned from Mrs. Sloan
that the chickens roosted out in the
trees, and something had been dis
turbing them all evening. Mrs. Sloan
and John had been out twice to try
and find out was bothering them. The
third time they heard the distur
bance, John took the gun and said he
would shoot and scare away whatever
it was. Just as he shot Mr. G. step
ped in range. Mr. Gooey was able to
go home, Tuesday.
