Notes or transcript:  “The question uppermost in most minds, in town, now is, who or what fired the two barns which have burned within the past two weeks. The hour was almost the same in each instance, and it is the general impression that some party or parties had a hand in it, either accidentally or with malice aforethought. A freight train went over the road, north, shortly before Beverlin’s barn was burned, Tuesday morning, and it could have been possible for sparks to have fired the building; but this view is not taken by many because the conditions for the blaze to originate in this way were not favorable. We would dislike to admit that we have a fire fiend in town.”
