Tho origin of the lire is unknown;
It was diseovoied in Sander Bros,

that only two or three show eases con

Sanders Bros, had $l,f00 insurance,
8400 boing on tho building, $100 on tho
fixtures and Si, 000 on tho stock.
The third -building was owned by
Dr. J. G. Older.
Tho wind was from tho south. Had

This is the fourth big lire in tho

L. C. Averill has given over his
entire advertising space to a special
and stiong appeal for the improve
ment of tho public square, and "Jack"
does not only make this appeal, but
lie comes down with 825 cash and
promises to plant live trrees. This
certainl.v ought to bring action on
this long neglected matter, and we
fully believe now that the squaie will
bo taken care of.
Ed Botvd, who haled fiom whence
no one knowcth or caieth a continen
tal, hove into town full of bug juice
Mondav, and was not long in finding
tho marshal, whose name aslo was Ed.
So Ed invited Ed down to his private
stall. Ed didn't want to go, and told
Ed he'd "spile" his face, and as Ed
made a pass to spile Ed's faco Ed
bowed up like a sheep and landed on
Ed's hi cad basket like a thousand
brick, which made Ed's invition to
Ed to bask in Ed's private stall rather
forcible, and Ed accepted. The next
morning Ed was given hours to get

Wo have a CITY HALL here that is by
far the finest public building in the county, and
tho squaie upon which the building is located
appears as bad as anj property in the city or
What should lie done is to fence this
squaie, plant it in grass and set out native
Now, some people will say that tho
grand should bo first graded, by taking off" the
knoll on the southeast corner, and dirtributing
it over the lower part.
This will not help the matter, as theio is
not enough of the knoll.
Tho right wav would bo to fill in the low
places and bring them up to a height to corre
spond w itli the high.
However, wo haven't the monej to do the
filling in, so let us fence this square like it is,
plant grass and ttees, and in a shott while it
will bo a place of ornament and beauty instead
of what it is today.
Make the fence out of material suitable
to the majority of people donating to tho enter
prise. 1 will stait the list witli a donation of 515
and will plant iivo maple trees.
