AN AGED LADY
BURNED TO DEATH
Miss Nancy Robertson Per
ished in Flames.
The House Destroyed by
Lived Near Gray Court?Occurred at
Midnight?Llyed Alone?12 Miles
MissNauey Robertson, agod tevenly
odd years, wai> burned to death Mon
day night in tlio destruction of her
home by lire. She lived on a tract of
land, in which sho had a life estate,
which was ronted by Mr. Whitley, in a
house of ante bellum oonstruotioo,
about one hundred yards from the
house occupied by Mr. Whitley and
family. The fire was discovered about
twoho o'clock Monday night by Mr.
Zeno Wilson, who was siding up with
a sie'e relative He hastened to the
scono and aroused Mr. Whitley. When
thoy reached the burning house they
found it entlroly [onvcloped in flames.
It was too late to rescue the lone in
mate, or save aoy of the contents.
The afternoon before, Mrs, Whitley
carried Miss Robertson, as washer cus
tom, her evening meal. It seems she
was engaged in quilting, having on
on hand a largo quanlty of batting. The
lamp she used was without a chimney.
Besides there was a great deal of other
inllammlble material in the house.
The reasonable supposition Is tbat In
some way tho batting caught from the
lamp, and Miss Robortson sultooated
before she could efcape or give the
alarm, it is easily conceived that her
clothing may have caught from tho
burnlDg batting, thus preventing her
oxit from the house.
It is said Miss Robertson's bones
were exhumed yesterday.
She had lived alone for years.

hero nor there now, Va'se the mule,
he's dead. He came up Monday eve
ning ailing hut we thought litt'o of it
a? he had oftou shown signs of ail
ments bo'ore which soon passed off.
Noxt morning f lound him still with
out appetite and still ailing. My rule
in treating a sick horse is to turn him
out and let him meander for himself,
and I guess it's about as good luek as
any since I have lost only two in
thirty years under this treatment, hav
ing kopt from live to seven most of the
time. Hut on this special occasion, be
ing it was old Hill, my wife, would have
me drench him. This I did early in
the day and he went on until night
[ seemingly doing as well as if it had not
1 been done. Thus encouraged she in
sistod that I repeat tho dose at night,
which 1 did of course. But. to her dis
may and my astonishment it seemed to
do him great hurl. Ho writhed and
reared and plunged f arfnlly. So she
hid mo stop ami lot bim alone. This I
did to please hoi' and always will if it
costs me a mule. But the mule never
got over that shock. H-j kept up a
restless tramping to and fro, forward
and backward, slinging tho head and
frothing till lotn in I lie nl^ht when I
applied my remedy?turned him out in
the pasture to moaudor. But, alas! it
was us I foildd next morning ho had
not meandered long. He Was dead and
is dead yet Now in this sad bereave
ment after it was all over with the
mule and \vc had lime for rellection it
was hut natural that vve ge' the horse
doctor hook and diagnose tho oase.
Having determined the di-ease and the
different causes for same, we bogan to
?peculate as to what probably caused

awhile to him what Bill had done to
overtax his energies, the Madam spoke
up with an expression of voice and
feature that betokened a discovery.
"Sa: !" say she, "what mule did Tone

says F, but dodp down in my heart 1

had for some months past boen court
ing a certain dusky damsel, having
mcdo one or two futilo efforts lo elopo
with her. Had I thought of all this lust
Sunday when he asked me for a mule
I certainly should have denied him.
Hut as fate would have it 1 d'.da't think
of It and the mule >'s dead. 1 found by
inquiry that ho had borrowed a buggy
from a neighbor, hitched my mule lo it
and driven six miles down to Center
Rftbun, caught up his prey and had
hied away ten miles to Fountain Im to
get a Notary to tie the knot that holds
and loscns the two together or asundor
as circumstances may suggest, thon

long drive, but when we consider all
the circumstances In tho case und how
a frightened negro might speed in a
