About half after 11 o'clock last
Friday morning the old Scott and
Donnell wooden store building was

near the chimeny. The roof and part

considerably burned. The build
' ing was occupied by Mr.
John C. Stout's grocery store,
Mr. S. M. Pickard's meat market
and Mr. John D. Vaughn's shoe
j. ' shop, who moyed out hastily. The
' damage has been repaired and a tin

The Sins of the Father,
The subject of "The Sins of the

a novel, but attacked it directly
by means of this play. lie had
a message to speak concerning
facial purity, and he has spoken
it without delaying or flinching.
It comes, in Mr. Dixon's own
words, as a clarion 'call to the
South to be true to her best tra
ditions and save American civili-'
zation. A book amuses and in
terests, but a piay drives a mes
sage home with incomparably
greater power. Those who would
