Bob Holmes is not so bad off after
all his house which was burned down
last Friday night, was insured in a
good company, the St. Paul Fire and
Marine, for $600 of course, $600 will
not cover more than half the loss, but
$600 is better than nothing. The St.
Paul Fire and Marine does a big busi
ness in this section of the country and
has the reputation of paying its losses

Mr, John McMinn and Mr. Peter

led and the case proceeded with sev

parties, and it was ten o'clock and af

agree, and the Justice was determined
to keep them there until they did
agree but after 12 o'clock the 12
good aud true men became rather bois
terous, the Justices' heart softened, so
he discharged them. This virtually
killed the action, as on Monday the
Justice refused to open up the case
again. Anderson has the iron and
is hammering away in his blacksmith
shop the same as usual.
