DOWNTOWN LAND MARK BURNS DOWN—Last Wooden Building On Main Street Victim of Fire Tuesday
In the spring of 1870, Dr. J.M. Madden,
a young and promising druggist who ran a store on Gloucester street, erected an
imposing building on the corner of Newcastle and Gloucester, second only to the
Friedlander building, in the downtown section. He opened a drug store
there and lived upstairs. He operated the store until he grew rich and retired,
since which time the store has been occupied by divers people, including Collatt
Clothing Store, F. Joerger, W.J. Butts, Ed C. Bruce, T.S.
Fortson, Stacy Branch, Carlyle Ward and at present by Dr.
Frank Roberts. In the spring of 1915 the building achieved world wide fame
as the scene of Brunswick’s most exciting half hour, when the late Monroe
Phillips ran amuck, upstairs and down.

F.B. CHILDRESS TO ESTABLISH SNAKE FARM ON DARIEN ROAD
F.B. Childress of Pennsylvania and
Florida, expert in snakology, has leased a tract of land on the Darien road from
C.W. Lane and expects to establish there an up-to-date and rattling good
snake farm. Mr. Chidlress has institutions of this kind elsewhere
and believes the Glynn County would be a good place to raise snakes. He
makes a specialty of rattlesnakes, and other venomous reptiles, and disposes of
the venom to scientific institutions. As everybody has a sort of creepy
interest in snakes, he also places his crop in proper shape for exhibition and
charges admission to the hissery.
