It is a good thing for us that we are still able to call on you every week because we know of a close neighbor in an inland town, in the printing business who is to bigoted and unobliging to help anyone when they are in need. All he thinks of is his own paper which is a disgrace to the town in which it is published.

About $500 worth of insurance was carried. The fire was started in the Mail office, the cause being unknown to us at this time.
