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

Several Cases Disposed of- Robert Beden
baugh Gets a Verdict for $2,000
Other Cases.
The case of Robert Bedenbaugh vs.
Southern railway, suit for $20,000 dam
ages, was given to the jury late Tues
day afternoon. After remaining out
all night, the jury early Wednesday
i morning brought in a verdict of $2,000
for the plaintiff.
Messrs. 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. Cothran and
Dean that he order a new trial. Judge
Dantzler has both motions under con
sideration but has rendered no decision.
The case of Lester Bedenbaugh vs.
the Western Union Telegraph Company
was taken up Wednesay morning.
This was a suit brought for damages on
the ground that the delivery of a mes
sage to plaintiff had been delayed in
Prosperity. After the evidence was in
plaintiff's attorneys asked for a non
suit on the ground that the evidence
showed the message had been delayed
in Columbia and not in Prosperity, as
was thought when suit was entered.
The plaintiff was represented by Cole
L. Blease and Johnstone & Welch, and
the defendant by Messrs. Hunt, Hunt
& Hunter.
The case of Lee Hayes vs. the Colum
bia, Newberry & Laurens Railway, was
taken up yesterday. This was a suit
for damages of $125 for the killing of a
mule belonging to Hayes some time in
December several years ago. The suit
was for $125, and the jury found a ver
dict of $125 for the plaintiff. The plain
tiff was represeuted by Cole. L. Blease
and R. H1. Welch, and the defendant by
Mower & Bynum.
The case of Howard vs. Glenn-Lowry
mill was taken up yesterday afternoon.
The suit is for $625.29, and interest from
March, 1901, which plaintiff claims is
due for laying brick in the erection of
the mill building. The plaintiff is repre
sented by Schumpert & Holloway, and
the mill by Johnstone & Welch.
The case of Howard vs. the Glenn
Lowry Mfg. Co. being the lastease, all
jurors not empanelled in this case were
discharged yesterday afternoon.
Had $10 and Two Mileage Books Stolen
From His Room in Hotel While
lie Was Asleep.
Mr. Win. H4. Kerr, representing the
High Point Furniture Company, high
Point, N. C., while occupying room
No. 6 in the Newberry lHotel Tuesday
night, had $10 in money, twvo railroad
mileage books, annd several other ar
ticles stolen from him.
Going to his room on Tuesday night,
lie said, he bolted the slat door. Wak
ing next morning he found his clothes
scattered over the room, and part out
in the passage. Evidently some one
had opened the door while he was asleep,
entered the room, made a thorough
search, and taken the articles wvanted.
The door could easily have been opened
from the outside by inserting some
thing through the slats and pushing the
bolt back.
Mr. Kerr notified the police force
next morning, but as yet they have
failed to find a clue.

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
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.

To the Public at Large!
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. I cannot p)raise the Associatioi
too high for what it has done for mn
husband, Thos. II. Ileeves. May you al
ever live and carry on the goodI work~
is my best wvishes to the Associamtion.
