Devoe is zinc ground in with lead and

and the cheapest, because it wears
twice as long as lead-and-oil. Nobody

About half past four o'clock yester
day afternoon the Ceda Grove Mis
sionary Baptist Church, colored, on
Cypress Street, was entirely destroyed
by fire. There was k revival meeting
in progress lathe church and it is be
lieved that a spark from the chimney
lodged on the roof, which as rapidly
fanned into a blaze that : sealed the
doom of the' building. A stiff breeze
was blowing and the flames gained a
headway that the firemen were unable
to control Their efforts were mostly
bent upon saving the houses opposite
to the burning building and had very
hard work to save them; they were
successful however and had poor water
pressure to contend with. They are
entitled to great credit for their ef
The sixth ward hose reel company,
which is composed of colored men, did
quick and effective work in preventing
the neighboring houses from catching
the blaze. They were enabled to get
to work before the Atlantics and liut
tons reached the scene.
Tht building had but recently been
repaired and the members and congre
gation had gone to considerable ex
pense; the loss, consequently comes
ver heavy upon them. The loss is es
timated at $2,0.0, the insurance at
$1,000. Rev. A. L. E. Weeks is pastor
of the church.
