At Little Mountain and Several
Fire Not Known.
The C.. N. & L. depot and five
wooden ware-houses at Little Mon
tain in this County, were de
stroyed by fire on Wednesday morn
ing. Tihe fire was discovered at six
o 'clock and it seems to have origina
ted under the roof of the building.
The building was covered with tin
and tihere was no fire in the place the
day before. It is not known how the
fire originated. When the communi
ty was aroused the fire was under
such headway that it was apparent
that the depot and the wooden
ware houses could not be saved. The
books of the agency and the tele
graph instruments were all removed.
Just across ilbe street from the
depot, not more than 75 feet, and
parallel to the depot and the ware
houses, are located all the stores in
th town. The efforts of the citizens
were directed to saving the line of
stores, in which they wer successful.
The freight train had passed about
an hour before the fire was discov
ered, and some think that possibly it
was started from a spark from the
The greatest loss is that of the
Railway Company, as in addition to
the building itself, there was con
siderable freight in the depot. It is
estimated that their loss will prob
ably reach $1,500.
Two of the ware-houses were owned
by Mr. J. B. Latham, in these he had
about twelve or fifteen tons - of cot
ton seed, and some few wagons and
buggies, all of which is a total loss
with no insurance. His loss will
probably be about seven hundred or
eight hundred dollars.
The other three ware-houses were
owned respectively by Counts &
Shealy, T. N. Shealy and Sease & Der
rick. The buildings were probably
worth about one hundred to. one
hundred and fifty dollars. each, and
are a total loss.
The depot was insured but to what
amount we are not informed. The
fronts to some of the stores across
the street, including the bank, the
J. H. Wise company, and the drug
store, were considc-ably damaged,
but this damage -. covered by in
It is fortunate that the fire was
kep~t under control, and really so far
as the ware-houses are concerned it
is better for the town that tihey are
remov4d. They will 'probably be re
placed by brick ware-houses.
The railroad is already taking steps
for t-he erection o a larger and bet
ter depot. The new structure will
be of bricek and fire-proof. The lo
ation of the warehouses will in all
probability be changed, or else, fire
proof buildings will be put back.
It is the opinion of everybody tihat
a more orderly crowd never attended
a fire. In a systematic way an
abidance of water was~ kept on the
stree:. which was used with discre
tion and the stores saved.
The removal of the warehou'ses,
whieh have long been detrimental to
the good appearance of the town, is
a good thing; for, fire traps that they
were. they might have burned at a
less opportune time.

"Human Hearts" To Be Played at
the Opera House Tuesday, Oc
The story of "Human Hearts"
ithat beautiful poetical play of the
simple life of the homely folk of
rural Arkansas, deals with the hap
ipenings to honest Tom Logan, the
village blacksmith. Tom dwells with
his parents in a picturesque spot of
the Arkansas Hills. There he was,
pursuing his vocation, living a plain
simple life; the mainstay of his
aged parents; beloved by all who
know him, and respected above his
fellows. On a certain unlucky day,
there came to the village a beautiful
woman, a temptress, unprincipled
and black at heart, but with a fasci
nation that proved to be the undo
ing of poor Tom Logan. He imme
diately proceeded to fall in love with
her, asked -her to marry him, and
she became his wife. Happy in his
fancied security, Tom lavished all .the
affection on the woman that was
possible to an honest heart like his,
but it was not returned.
One day there appears on the
scene a villian, the former lover of
the woman, who cimmits a cowardly
murder and with the assistance of
the woman, fastens the crime on Tom
who is tried and convicted for the
crime of another. Tom is sentenced
to States' Prison for life, an'd the
vifianous pair congra:tulate them
selves that they have not only gotten
rid of him, but have secured immu
nity from the law for themselves.
But Providence has been watching
over the ,blacksmith, and unseen in
fluences are at work to thwart their
plan. Humble friends of Tom do
not forget him, and their endeavors
to bring the case to -the notice of the
Governor oif Arkansas are finally,
successful. The villians are un
masked and Tom is proved innocent.
The* play is a pathetic one with many
thrilling scenes, but there is a very
strong comedy vein running through
it -which gives the -necessary con
Manager Nankeville has provided
a most adequate stage investiture for
