At this juncture Mr. .1. W. Sholor
stated that there was a vacancy on tho
Hoard ol' Health to be lilied. Then came
a squabble Sumo said there were two
vacancies, some contended for tbroo, ami
no one knew "where he was at." Ono

Much to our chagrin and regret the
cot (ago on Seroamor top belonging to Kx
Chiof .Justice Logan E. llleckley was
totally destroyed by bro a few nights
since. The tiring could not havo been
tho wink of an incendiary, for Judge
llleckley is universally held in tho high
est esteem by tho people of this his na
tive comity. Indirect it is a suspicious
pioco of work, siUC0 tho mountain was
tired by unknown parties in tho night
time, presumably for thc purpose of
making ready for spring vegetation, and
?aid parties failed to notify the .Judge's
relatives who li veil in this vicinity that
tho mountain was fired so that they
might protoct the house.
We regret tho destruction as badly, if
possiblo, as .Judge llleckley himself,
since it was au object of interest and
curiosity lo strangers as well as a re
treat for our people for picnics and
other pur posos.
We should suggest thal people who
engage in such business should bo more
discriminating as to whose woods they
fire and cortainly not go to thc point of
extravagance as was credited to Sher
