TEE PINEHURST OUTLOOK
SOUTHERN PINES SUFFERS THE RED CROSS
$100,000.00 LOSS BY FIRE MOORE COUNTY CHAPTER
More than half of the entire block
situated between Broad Street and Penn
sylvania Avenue in Southern Pines was
totally destroyed by fire at an early hour
Thursday morning. The loss is said to
amount to close to $100,000.
The heaviest losers are Henry Lewis,
building and stock, $20,000; R. E. Wiley,
$1,500; Perkins Hotel and minor build
ings connected with the hotel, $30,000;
Home Furniture Company, $5,000; J. F.
Reynolds, $7,500; H. F. Howe, Jeweler,
$1,500; J. M. Windham, $1,000; Tom
Cameron, Haberdasher, $4,500; E. C.
Eddy, Photographer and Novelty store,
$3,500; Leavitts Telephone Co., $3,500;
N. J. Mills, stock, $3,500; and a number
of smaller losses. The amount of insur
ance could not be ascertained, but it is
said to be comparatively little on account
of the high rates.
The buildings were all wooden and
most of them old, but in good shape.
The origin of the fire is uncertain. It
was discovered about 2 o'clock in the
morning but was under such headway it
could not be stopped until the whole
wooden block was completely burned out.
The Southern Pines fire department was
quickly on the ground, and good action
saved the rest of the town as the flying
sparks set fire in several other places.
At a critical moment, when it was thought
that the fire would get over to the Jef
ferson Inn and the Congregational church
the Pinehurst fire department arrived
and by its help and the brick walls of
the Hayes store and Wiley's store, the
fire was cut off after burning two or
three wooden buildings back of the tele
phone office and toward the Congrega
Not much was saved from the burning
buildings as the fire had gained such head
way before it was discovered that it was
with difficulty the buildings could be en
tered. One of the deplorable features of the
fire at Southern Pines was the sudden
death of Dr. Wm. P. Swett. He had
been called to attend an invalid at one
of the hotels nearby, and in the excite
ment of the fire, which seemed likely to
sweep toward the hotel, the patient col
lapsed. The deatli of the patient, and
the threatening approach of the fire af
fected the doctor and, without warning,
he fell dead.
Dr. Swett was one of the early settlers
in Southern Pines, going there from
the north some thirty years ago.
On Tuesday mornings through the win
ter some of the ladies of Pinehurst have
