Joplin, Mo., March 14--Early yesterday morning the mills and elevators of the Sergeant milling company were totally destroyed by fire. The plant was the finest in the southwest and was erected about seven years ago at a cost of $150,000. They were insured only in the sum of $25,000. The origin of the fire is unknown.
