Christie correspondence which comes to hand as we are going to press gives the following account of Geo. Barr’s misfortune Monday: "George 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 Ladies’ Aid and others will give a supper at Brown’s hall on Thursday, Nov. 14, the proceeds to go to Mrs. Barr. The ladies will tie there comfortables for Mrs. Barr in the afternoon. Every body is invited." Gleaner 11-8-1901
