Last Saturday night a week ago someone broke into Abney & Allen’s store and secured two dollars in cash and some cheroots and chewing gum. It seems that they didn’t not get all they wanted, for last Saturday night they repeated the visit, but did not get anything. They were evidently amateurs or they would have secured some booty. The bloodhounds were placed on the trial, but could do nothing because of so much (time) passing.
Tuesday morning about 1 o’clock our citizens were awakened by a fire alarm. Investigation showed it to be the home of J. N. Jackson. The fire had reached such headway before it was discovered that it was impossible to save even the furniture and clothing in the house. Hard and constant work was required to save the home of Dr. Green adjoining, and all the furniture was removed from his house. The loss to Mr. Jackson was over $1,500; insurance $1,000. Dr. Green’s loss was about $250, fully insured. The origin of the fire is unknown. Mr. Jackson has moved to the house of Edgar Lyle in the northwest part of town.
