FIRE SATURDAY MORNING.
Barns of Dr. Gilder and Mr. R. Y
Leavell Destroyed by Flames
Obstruction in the Road.
The barns hel,-nging to Dr. 1. K
Gilder and .\r. R. Y. Leaveli wer
destroyed by tire Saturday mornin3
about two o'clock. The fire whic1
is supposed to have been started b:
rats, originated in Mr. Leavell's bari
and had gained great headway befor
it was discovered. The flames sprea
rapidly and before the fire departmen
arrived the adjoining barn of Di
Gilder's was in full blaze.
Both barns were burned to ~thE
ground. but the horses and buggie
were saved. Mr. Leavell's loss i
about $350. and Dr. Gilder's abou
5oo. There was no insurance.
The fire department responded t,
the man-not a member being absen
-which certainly speaks well for
volunteer company. They did effc
ient work in saving several adjoin
ing out-houses which were in the patl
of the flames.
On the way to the fire the hos,
vagon came very near colliding int<
a broken down wagon near Mr. Jin
Davidson's residence. The wago1
as stranded nearly in the middle o
:he road, and had it not been tha
he moon was shining the hose wagoi
sould have been wrecked and som,

manner. and the guilty parties shouli

great gorge route, the Whirlpool
Rapids. the Construction of immense
Power companies, the ride to Chippe

great arch bridge, these are but a few
of the pleasures that a visit to Niag

being without poetic fancy, and not
being struck by the divine Afflatus,
that inspires to exquisite imagery.
My advice is to go and go again if
you love the beautiful in nature and
are seeking to know aesthetic culture.
