BARR, GEORGE J.

Christie Correspondence which comes to hand as we are going to press gives the following account of George Barr's misfortune Monday: George J. Barr, our blacksmith, met with a serious loss last Monday morning. About eight o'clock his house caught fire and everything was burned excepting the sewing machine, a trunk and Mr. Barr's overcoat. The men are having a bee today hauling lumber to build him a house. They are going to get out the sills and help him put it up. The Ladie's Aid and others will give a supper at Brown's hall on Thursday, Nov. 14, 1901 the proceeds to go to Mrs. Barr (Minnie Hannah Barr). The ladies will tie a comforter for Mrs. Barr in the afternoon.  Everybody is invited.
