THE COUNTY BUILDING QUESTION.
ritiacoTT, April 27, 1874.
KuiTon Mixeh: Some eight or ten days
ago I read a communication Jr the Mim:k
headed "Tho County Uulldlng Quwtion "
nnd signed "Qitizcn." T concur in tbo opirrion
of Citizen as expressed In hi communica
tion, that the contract with Mr Lount for
the building of a (Ire-proof houw for the
coanty, to bo used for county o dices, should
bo abrogated, for the additional reason to
what was given In his communication, that,
if built in the place now designed, it will not
Iw fire proof. A. wall 22 inchca thick ii hot
a firo-proof wall In moderately rarorablo cir
cumstance and will certainly not be whet
coTerod with a wooden roof, and a log-rrame
Iiouko (tho court-house) adjoining, and with
other frame buildings frontinn It to tho wind
ward on tho other sido of the street. If tha
toranuMioners ihiiik that 12 or lb4 Inches of
dirt underneath the roof on top -of the joists

go into the woods and oxamine tbo depth to
rktch the grodnd 1ms bwa burst by the
Imrniag of logs, until it U as red as a
brick. Thca ,tkey Risy perhaps bo able to
tuskoa moderately close calculation about
how aiuca aistance Ike roof will lend the

way, in heating the atmosphere Ta tho inside
f tho hette to a autlicient degree to ignite
matches', kerosene oil, recently painted sur
face, and such other inilamahlc material aa
aay be in the bouitc.
The fact of tho case is this, in tho opinion,
as I know, of many of tho peopla of this
tonT, that if said house is completed, tho
records of the county will be intrusted to
the safety of the house; and it is only a
question of time when they will all be
burnt up. Let us have a Ore-proof record
er's office built, in which to keep the records
of the county. That is all we need in tho
office linj, and Is what our grand jurors hate
several tpnes recommended, and is all that
thoy ever did recommend ia the office line.

that, tho thickness or the length of a brick,

brick between tho walls to serve aa a dead
sur chamber; put on a tin roof and cover It
with sir or cght Inches of dirt on the top;
fix tho openings right and yoa will have a

A very diirercnt complaint from that heard
from men and women in thein vaiw A,rfn-,

looking more like a lake than a drv" ranch.

Never before did we see the "desert" arrared
in such gorgeous attire. Flowers, of various
