W. Q. Hammond, ono of ?ndert
County's most successful anti ext?
sive farmers, met with a very seri*
misfortune yesterday morning by lu
ing his largo barn, with nearly nil of
contents, destroyed by lire. Tho I
was discovered about y o'clock by om
the guards of tho convicts used on
farm, but it had gained such a hei
way that very little of the content*
the barn could be saved. In thebni
iug were between 75 and iOO bales
unginned cotton, about 5,000bushel,
oats, a lot of corn, hay and other I
age, all of tho plows, mowers and ot
farm machinery, with several wog
and other vehicles, harness, etc. Sc
of the oats and cotton and a few ot
things were saved. The estimated I
is about $12,000, on which there wai
insurance, .lt is not known how
fire originated and Mr. Hamm*
thinks it was purely accidental.
Monday the laborers had some fir*
the fields where they were nicking ?
ton, and it is presumed that it got i
the cotton that was carried into
barn, as the flames broke out firs
that portion ofjtho building where
fleecy staple was store. The friend
Mr. Hammond deeply sympathize v,
him in his loss, but hu bears the h
den bravely, and, with his usual i
severence, he will go to work to rej
the damage and replace the loss s
