The residence occupied by Dr. Z.
Greene and family, on Greenville
street, caught fire late Saturday after
noon and was burned to the ground.
The fire was caused by a defective flue
in the kitchen, and by the time the fire
department reached the scene the
flames had made such headway it whs
found impossible to save the building.
A quantity of furniture and other
household goods were saved, however,
though in a more or less damaged con
dition. The residence was the property
of Mr. Calhoun Caldwell, and both the
building and furniture were insured.

bakery. She considers Newnan fortu
nate in having an establishment where
sweet, wholesome bread may be had at
every meal—especially so in view of
the scarcity of competent domestic
help and the “bum” cooking one is
forced to put up with in most of the
towns in this part of the country.

Wednesday night, the ordinance being
administered by the pastor, Rev. .1. F.

listened to stronger or more heart-mov
