Four Frame Buildings Destroyed by Fire.

(Special Telegram to the News.)

Denison, June 30. – A fire broke out at 4:30 o’clock this morning in the grocery store of Mr. WALDROP, and in a short time consumed four frame buildings – one owned by Dr. GUITEAU, the next by J. B. MCDOUGALL, then that by Fred DUNN, and the other by Fred MULLER. The firemen had time to save Dr. ACHESON’S drug store and Dr. WOOD’S grocery store. Too much praise can not be awarded our worthy firemen for their efforts.
