Thornton avenue, being discovered on

the loft, and the Doctor says ho feels

bustion, caused by pultlotig a lot of
wet hay on some dry bay in the barn.
which be did some weeks ago- It was
first discovered by Sam Sevier, when
the blaze was small, but before the
alarm could be given and buckets and
water procured it wss beyond control.
Mr. Sevier knocked In the door and to
rescue the horses, but there happenned
to be none in the building. The bug
gies were run out and nearly all the
harness removed, but the feed, a lot of
second hand sewing machines and oil er
loose things of value were burned.
The buildings, with the crib In the
rear, were nearly new and in excellent
repair. In the lofts were stored about
5 tons of hay, (and elsewhere In the
building were 60 barrels of corn, CO
bushels of oats and about 21-0 bushels
of bran, allot which were burned The
loss is estimated at about Suoo, on
which there was no insurance.
It took but littlle time fur the build

The wife of Mr. It. L. Wall, who left
this county last spring With her hus
band, to make their home near Stur
geon, In lloone oounty, died on Sunday
laitfrom an attack of llux, and her
remttns were laid to rest, at Orrick, In
this county, one day this Week. She
bad been married to Mr. Wall less than
two J curs and leaves behind an Infant
six months old. This it truly a sad be
reavement to the husband and rela
tives, and they have the heartfelt sym
pathy of their entire acquaintance.
Mrs. Wall, was an exemplary lady and
ha I host of friends to regret her sad
ai d early death. Rut there Is an all
wtie Creator who controls our destiny
and doeth all thlngi well.
We are now enjoying some of the
fruits nf local option In Richmond.
Notwithstanding the fact that certain
nf our lawyers signed a legal opinion
to the contrary just before the elec
tion, it ia now a pretty well admitted
fact that the local option law repeals
the drug law, and there ia not a drug
gist in Ray County to-day, who will
sell w hisky ou prescription in a less
quantity than one gallon, and after
November 1st, they will not sell It all.
This Is just what the Democrat said
the law would do, and to a csusual ob
server from this standpoint, it begins
to look as if the sale of Intoxicants
would cease ; but such Is not the case.
l)lore the election the Democrat
told you that the adoption ot the local
option law would practically remove
all restraint from the sale of alcohol by
licensed druggists and make it just as
easy to procure an intoxicant as when
the HMiumie were running. Worthy
gentlemen, let us hope honestly, took
issue with us on this point and said we
were only talking for effect. Which was
right i1 The large increase in tlie sales
of alcohol by dtug stoies again affirms
the correctness ot the position of the
Dkmocuat, fur we are safe In saying
that more alcohol has been sold by
this class of dealers in the last SO days
than hud been sold before in five years.
This statement is made from informa
tion picked up in a general way, and
we believe it correct. Then what have
wo gained V Before the adoption of
local option, it required the signature
ol two-thirds of the resident tax-pay
ers in Richmond to a petition asking
lor a saloon, betore the court would
grant a license. This absolutely shut
the saloons ont ot the town. We bad
a stringent law to prevent druggists
from selling whisky. We bad a new
law preventing a merchaut selling In
lens quantities than 5 gallons under a
merchants license. Yet a lot of cranks
and fanatics in our midst were not
sutii-iied with this. They must have
something Btronger, and as a result
they have adopted a law that Is full of
mistakes and has this big one In it, of
making it impossible to procure whis
ky, brandy or wiue for medicine, yet
practically removes all restraint from
the sale of alcohol, which Is nothing
more than high proof spirits. That is
the cituatiun at present aud without
the law is declared unconstitutional,
it will so remain, as the law is in such
a shape that tlie next sitting of the leg
islature cannot amend it, and we very
much doubt, if it stands the constitu
tional test, whether the legislature can
repeal it or not, as that body did not
adopt It, and we believe their la a prin
ciple in our government which pro
vides that a law can only be repealed
by the power that created It, Besides
making the sale of alcohol free, what
