JANUAJIY J9, 1922 to Get Old Stores Fire Does Not Nullify Con- Rebuild Im Reaches May Cause Higher Insurance. The lojs caused by the Miller building fire which wiped out two mercantile establishments, a cafe, the Y. C? A. and eleven profes- sional offices will amount to about excluding the loss incidental 'to the Interruption or business sus- 'tained by those affected. J. D. Pruitt, proprietor of Jacob's store, said this morning that he :had made no plans whatever thus, towards setting up business in. 'temporary quarters. J. F. Parker was engaged today in seeking locale on -Main street ih to resume business pending the rehabilitation of the Miller Under the leases held by the two .store proprietors, the fact that they were burned out does not nullify the with Dr. E. H. Miller. These .leases prescribe specifically that in 'the event of a fire, the rent shall cease until the building is rehabili- as quickly as possible, so that the drug store owner and the sta- tionery store proprietor cannot secure new permanent locations, but must set up business in temporary quar- ters until the burned building has been restored. The owner of the Francisco busi- which has one ground floor vacant only one on Main street .is requiring that any person sub-renting the quarters frorn the safeteria recently closed fin out the unexpired lease of four years. The water which seeped into the basement of the Miller building was pumped out yesterday and the dan- ger of water finding its way into ad- joining basements was thus removed. on page 3.) Youth "CooteVp" Masked Man Agent Is Required To Make Loss Good Railway detectives who have been investigating: the theft of from the ticket office of the Danville and Western railway station at Martins- ville, have so" far failed to secure an> clue to the thief, and the robbery re- mains unsolved. In connection with the robbery, li has been learned that Miss M. A. Brown, of Martinsville, the ticket agent, has been required by the rail- way company to make good the on the ground that it was due to carelessness and she has given a cer- tified check for the entire amount. Further details of the robbery are as follows: When Miss Brown, was preparing to close the office about 6 o'clock, she. found that the safe had been by ac- dentally locked, and not having the combination at hand, she was unable to open it to place the accumulated cash, amounting to in the safe. She did not care to take the money home with her, as she was afraid to keep it overnight in her personal pos- session, she she placed it in a. drawer of the desk at which she usually j worked. She found also that her keys were locked up in the safe, hav- ing been left hanging to an inside! drawer which she used during the i Briand Unruffled Mt.

Witt, it being stated in oth- er quarters that the church tenta- tively plans rearing the new sacred at that point, also a new rec- tory on Montague street which is nearby. Rev. Mr. Halbleib said that he thought that several weeks would elapse before he is in a position to make any authentic statement and for the time being the new church plan is only in tentative form. The present church is situated at the angli? made by Ross and Hoi- brook streets. The question of dis- posing of property is said to be a difficult one since, it is understood, in the event of "its being abandoned property would revert back to the donor. The church law is further said to prohibit the sale of a build ing used as a church for another other purpose. In the meantime, however, sub- scriptions are being secured from the parish which is a large one. tak- J'HK in several Virginia counties in I which are scattered missions.
