It broke out in a storeroom off one of Burchfield's tailor shops ; and wa probably caused by a pan ot asbes whiuh had been placed there The fire department was out promply and subdued the fire, but considerable damage was done by fire and water. The fire had run between the joists west to the rooms in the next building, owned by Mrs. W. R Henderson, and occupied by W. F. Russell, the conf-cuoner, where it damaed fine bed-room set, and goods ftored there which wtre owaed by Mrs. D. L. Story, of Texas. O. A.
