The residence on the Culbreath
place in Saluda county was destroyed
by fire the latter part of la:st week.
No one was residing in the house, and
there is no evidence as to the cause of
the burning. However, some people

L The prospect for a hospital at New

money rather for humanitarian pur- 1

company be organized with a capi- 1

bundred shares of the par value of
At the meeting Monday night it was
decided to' adopt this plan and the
committee, which has been in charge

the raising of the stock and to act as 3
corporators and to secure the charter.
To this committee was added all of
the physicians of this county, who are
asked to cooperate, the purpose be

day night was small, but $1200 of the
capital stock was subscribed by those t
present. The indications are that the i
