MILL AND GIN HOUSE BURNED At Bexar, this county, on last Monday
evening, a mill and ginnery, together with all the machinery and
several bales of cotton was destroyed by fire. The mill and gin was
the property of Mr. MARION PEARCE and was probably worth about
$4,000. The loss is heavy there being no insurance so far as we have
learned. The fire is supposed to have been started by a little son
of Mr. PEARCE, who was playing around the gin with some matches and
carelessly dropped a lighted one, with what result is shown in the

FROM BEXAR Editor Herald: Having seen nothing in the
Herald from this section in some time, I will try to give you a few
items for publication. Bexar is well supplied with candidates,
having four in the field. If all the beats are supplied as well as
Bexar, there will be a goodly number of candidates in the county.
Messrs PEARCE and ARNOLD are receiving their spring stock of goods.
Mr. N. M. PEARCE is re-building his mill, which when put in
operation, will add greatly to the convenience of this section.
Success to the Herald. J. B. H.
