FIRE AT WMTMIRE.
Two Stores Completed Burned-Heroic Efforts Necessary to Save The Town. (Special to Herald and News.) Whitmire, July 22.-This morning about five o'clock Messrs. Raysor & Miller's store was.iscovered to be on fire. Heroic efforts were made to save! the building, but they all proved una valling. The fire soon leaped to C. W. Cornwell's store, and this store was also burned to the ground. The fire was discovered by Mr. J. G. Setzler just before the usual time of opening up. A passing train also blew an alarm. When the fire was discovered by Mr. Setzler it could have been got under control with three or four buckets of water, but unfortunately this water could not be obtained immediately. At the time when discovered the fire had gained no headway, and only a little dmoke could be seen pouring out between the weatherboarding and the ceiling. The alarm was given and a number of the,merchants, clerks and neighbors were soon #n hand. The trouble was the Impossibilty of getting a little water in the nick of time. As a last resort the railroad tank was brought into service and proved effec tive in saving the adjoining buildings. For a time it looked as if the whole town would go. The company store next to one of the burning buildings was considerably scorched, and had the fire reached this store the location of the other buildings is such that it would have been almost a miracle if they had been saved. Many of the merchants moved out parts of their stock, in this way'austaining some damage. Both the irms whose stores were burned did a general merchandise business. The .stores were frame structures. Messrs. tayAor & Miller's store, being the first to catch. none of their stock was saved. Mr. Corhwell succeeded in saving all his stock except the heavy groceries, but the stock which he saved is in badly damaged condition. Messrs. Raysor & Miller's insurance amounted to about $4,000 and Mr. Corn well's insurance to about $2,900. This will not cover the loss. The fire started between the weather boarding and ceiling. At present there 1a nothing to lead to the belief that it was of incendiary origin. Messrs. Raysor & Miller and Corn well are very popular and enterprising young men and our citizens predict that they will soon start up in business again and achieve the success they so richly deserve.

The case of Robert Bedenbaugh vs. Southern railway, suit for $20,000 dam ages, was given to the jury late Tues day afternoon.

Cothran and Dean, represent ing the railway .defendant, moved that His Honor enter the judgment for the railway in other words, to set aside the verdict-on the ground that the jury had rendered their verdict against I the Southern only, when the action was against the Southern and its employee, Mr. Outlaw, who was the engineer on the train which caused the injury to Mr. Bedenbaugh. Mr. Johnstone, on behalf of Messrs. Johnstone & Welch and Blease, representing the plaintiff, moved that if His Honor saw merit in the contention of Messrs.

THE JONES PROPERTY. Will Not ft Purchased For Public Uses On Account Of the Price Which Is Asked. The board of directors of the board of trade, city council, and the board of trustees of thq graded schools held a meeting on Monday night to hear the report of the special committee ap pointed some time ago to confer with Associate Justice Ira B. Jones in regard to the purchase of the property faced by the Boundary street graded school building and the Lutheran Church of the Redeemer. Some time ago a meeting of the three bodies was called to discuss the advisa bility of the purchase of this property for public uses on account of the fact that a number of small houses were being erected thereon which it was thought would detract from the value and the attractiveness of the surround ing lots. After a full and free discus sion of the situation a special commit tee, consisting of Mr. Alan Johnstone, chairman of the trustees of- the city schools, Mayor Jno. W. Earhardt, and Dr. 0. B. Mayer, president of the board of trade, were appointed to go to Co lumbia and consult Mr. Justice Jones in regard to the purchase. This committee reported at the meet ing Monday night that they had seen Mr. Jones and that he hadinformed the committee he would consult his wife, who is really the owner of the property, and write the committee. That the committee had received a letter from him saying that he would take $2,OCO for the property, plus the cost of the erection of the secondl house-$125.60 That he would contribute $10) to the enterprise personally if the property was desired to La used for public pur poses. These figures mean that the total cost of the property would be $2,025. This the meeting considered an exorbit ant price, and on motion it was decided not to purchase the property, or to make any effort to raise money for the purlose of purchasing. The meeting then adjourned. PROSPERITY NEWS Sunday School Picnic Postponed -ll1ness Of K. Baker --Personal Mention Other Matters. Prosperity, July 23. --Prof. N. E.

Mr. Editor, don't you think from the last report on corn that every Southern farmer will need somo? In looking over the cotton reports, seeing no many cotton mills reported ~idle, it appears that somebody has them by the tail and a down hill pull. I have often heard that it was a long lane without a turn, and I guess the old adage will apply very well to the cot. ton situation. The mills have had the long end of the rop~e for quite a while.

Seeing the need of an organiza tion looking to giving cheap pro tection in this county, we takt pleasure in recommending to th people ias a whole, the Workment Union Protective Association of America, as being the best thing in the way of sick, accident an1 burial benefits, in ex istence. W< write from the age of 12 to 65. 1t. costs $2. I0 for ai pl)icy, -md i you are sick one week, wepa you $6 per week ; and at the deati of a member $50 as a burial funm is p)aidl. Any one wishing p)rotee. Stion against sickness or accidlent at cost, can get, it. by applying tc either Eu gene S. Werts, Secre. tary and T1'reasurer, J1. W. Ear hardlt, President, or J1. W. Recder, County Agent. To the Secretary and1 Trasurer of th< Workmen's Union Protective Asso ciation of America: I certainly applreciate the promnptnest in you pa.ying my husband, TIhomas 1I Reeves, sick benefit and burial fnnds. I can heartily recommend the comn pany to one and all who want protec tion at cost. My husband had only pai< thirty-five cents (35e) into the treasury after receivingr his policy, and the comn panty has fulfilled its prominv to a let ter. I think every man, woman an< child in the county, that is twelve years old, ought to I.'ve a policy in the Work men'sU Union Protective Association o -America. First -why, because it is home company; second the money i all kept right at home; third--you geti at cost; fourth-the association is du ing what God has taught us to do, hell one another; and there is no better wa to obey the commnrndl of the Lord thau to link together in this grandl Associa tion.
