Last Saturday night between II and 12

Whitbcck, located in t''is valley, including
about I5,(MII) feet of sills for his new mill,
was destroyed by lire. It was undoubtedly

strongly raspected of the crime. If he, or
they, should be detected, there will be 1.0

Several other tires havo occurred in the
