Concerned about it, he de- cided to remove it from the building and hide it in the rock building at the rear of the drug store. Bailey said that would have worked well, except when the fire hit the building, the roof caved in. Bailey's father had to hire someone to dig out the gold.

This time, a new street, Bradley Street, was included right next door to the drugstore. PPIES II I! a u S t r a I i a ' s Shoes 5 MAIN ST..
