On January 18th the Katy will put on a new daily train from Denison to Parsons. The time of the flyer will be increased and fewer stops made and this new train will be more of an accommodation.

The new train has been needed some time.

Fire destroyed the residence of W. W. White on Buffalo street Wednesday morning about 3 o’clock. The house was owned by J. H. Sims of Durant. The fire was far advanced when first discovered and none of the effects were saved. The photo tent and contents were saved. There was some insurance but we failed to learn how much. It was a narrow escape for the building of Smith, Cobb & Pace, as they were next east of the residence. Buffalo Street being 100 feet wide lessened the danger to buildings on the south side, though a strong north wind was blowing.
