i Our Spring Hill reporter visited the scene
of the late fire iu Franklin on last Mon
day morning, and found it the most exten
sive and disastrous fire, s-ive one, that ha
ever occurred in that town. The losses were
so general and so heavy, and mostly with
out insurance, or with suflicient insurance,
that it caused a feeling of sadness to settle
down upon the community. Severa'
worthy, clever, good business men, lost
nearly everything, and have little else leu
them, save their honor, integrity nnd ener
gy, with a wn,rru place In the kindly sympa
