Street Improvement.
nt the regular session ot the Council
held Monday evening a petition was re
ceived from the property owners of South
Main street asking that street improve
ments bo made as per plans relerred to in
our lust issue, but for the benefit of the
readers we will tepea'. it. A stoue drive
way eight feet wide and eight inches thick
to be laid in the center of the street, the
cost of same not to exceed one dollar per
fool; thret-inurths ot tbe expense ot same
to lie paid tor Iron) the general fund and
o ie-fourlh to be assessed to the property
owners; that will cause an assessment or
one-eighth of the expense, or one shilling
per running loot, to be assessed upon ad
jacent property on the street. For Instance,
lor every one huudred feet an assessme.it
will bo ordered In Ihe sum of twelve dol
lars ana fifty cents. While it is Indeed s
very light assessment compared to the
benefit lo be received, the condition of our
streets this winter warrants us in doiug
something to prevent a repetition of such
a state of uffalrs if we desire to hold Ihe
trade thut belougs to us. So tar as we have
been able to learn the solicitors for signa
tures have been cordially received, and
while some have not given their names at
the first visit, a promise was given to seri
ously consider the matter and probably by
Saturday evening two-ihirdsof the prop
erty owners if not the entire number will
he received and Ihe Council will be fully
warranted in p-oceedlog with the prelim
inary part of the Improvement forthwith
We hope that all will do their whole duty
and you will never regret It.

At eleven o'clock and forty minates on
Friday evening, January 4th, the fire bell
guve the alarm of fire which was visible
by the leaping flames at tome point in tho
west part of town when the alarm was
given. In a lew minutes it was ascertain
ed to be a barn locuted on the Johns' estate
north of the brick and tile yard of C. V.
Heraenwey. On account of tho bad con
dition of the streets, the department was
unable to render any assistance in the
matter, consequently the flames sped on
unmolested. The barn was leased by
Wm. F. Johns and contained three bead of
horses, fifteen milch cows and 'three
hellers, all of which perished in the
flames except one horse that broke loose
and when the door was opened made a
break tor its liberty and waa saved. A
large quantity of hay, grain, one milk
delivering wagon, milk cans, fixtures,
harness, etc., were entirely consumed.
Tbe barn was owned by the heirs of Dr.
Johns and was uninsured so far as reports
have It, and the contents and stock were
Insured In the Home of New York, by C.
Sage & Co., for seven hundred and fifty
dollars. Mr. Johns supplied a portion of
the people of the town with milk and the
fire visiting the premises at this season of
the year, when nearly all of bis effects
were stored under the roof, and with sucli
a ligln Insurance, the loss Will he keenly
feltbyblm. He is a resident of Kelly
street Hnd did not reach the scene of ac
tion until the premises were nearly con
sumed.' A large crowd ol people was on
hand as soon as the cry ot fire was an
nounced, but Ihe fire had evidently origi
nated in the hay and straw on tbe inside,
hence nothing could be done but to stand
ujr mm witness me remains oi lue animals
reduced to ashe. As to the cause of tbe
Bra no one seems lo know, but the pre
vailing opinion seems lo be that It was
accidentally set on fire by tramps who
had sought lodging. Total loss, above in
surance $1,000.
