The sale of real estate

We believe this to be the true policy for
property holders to pursue, when an
opportunity offers of securing the influ
ence and capital of men of enterprise in
any particular locality. The purchase
of a piece of property by a man of means,
who will improve it, adds to the value
of all contiguous property, and we be
lieve Mr. Hays will be largely compen
sated for any apparent sacrifice, by the
increased value of adjoining lots and
land of which ho is still the owner, by
the improvement of Mr. Fitzgerald,
the enterprising and energetic purchaser,
will undoubtedly make. Our city has
lost much of capital and population in
consequence of the pr'ces at which
property has been he'd during the past

move of Mr. Hays will be followed by
others who have large quantities of real

a-t Sunday at about half past two
o'clock in the afternoon, burning down
the residence of Mr. Augun Thimron.
and destroying a great deal of his house
hold property. It is supposed that the
fire originated from a defective flue.
The most of his goods, however, were
saved. The loss was considerable, but
wc do not know the exact amount. Mr.
Mattison, who is our informant, says
that the people of that vicinity are show
ing their generosity to Mr. Thingon and
family by contributing a sufficient
amount of money to replace Mr. Thirigon
in the circumstances he was before the
loss. This is a righteous act of the
good people of South Rend and vicinity,
and we heartllv commend it.

liquors amounting to $50.01 that his

Mr. Editou: I will give but a mil l
answer to "R.," notwithstanding the
impulse of my mind to tho contrary.
The gentleman, whoever he may be,
(I care not), forgets that the town turned
over to the agent, not $"7.54, but $32.17
plus $.j7."4 (see the original question).
Now, I say, I am right, tind I defy any
man to prove the contrary. It teems to
me that "R." knows nothing of the
original question, or he would not make
such "a lamb'tt tail" of himself as he
has made. If he got tho question in
serted, he forgets what the problem re
ally is. This puts me in mind of a ques
tion Judge Norbury put to a boy once,
in Ireland : "Will you tell me, my boy,"
said the Judge, "what is my name?"
"Do you ask me. sir," sai l the boy, "to
tell you what your name is?'' 'Yes,'
said the Judge. "Well," said the boy,
"you are a queer fellow not to know your
own name." Now, sir, this is precisely
the ease with "R." I maintain most
emphatically that I am right, and that
"I!." does not know his own question.
In your paid column, another would
be critic says, "that neither of his an--wcr

"neither of his answers vns correct."

Lincoln, April IT, l!71.
At about .1 o'clot k this morning the
Lunatic Asylum was discovered to be on
fire, and the entire structure is now a
mass of ruins. It is believed to have
been the work of an incendiary, as it
caught in the same place as
it on once ietore in a
part cf tl;e aiding unoccupied. Two
of the inmates were burned Edward
Halverson, from Richardson county,
.Mi l Henry Keeler, from Dodge county.
The loss is estimated at $175,000 the
building having cost $14.r.o00 and the
furniture $30,000. A small portion of
the furniture not exceeding $1,000
worth was saved. The building wa
insured for about $0 .o0O in several com
panies. The walls fell in le-s than an
hour from the time the firo first hrJ?
out. The two men who pciished were
coufined in an upper room. They were
released and several attempts made to
get them away from the flames, but they
would return to their rooms as fast as
they were set at liberty.
Messis. Wm. F. Rennett and A. W.
Snyder have purchased the store of II.
D. Fox, on Main street, and have sent
for a fine stock of goods, which will ar
rive a fc w days. They are both young

and we can safely recommend them to
th" public as just the kind of men that
should be encouraged i:i business pur
suits. The style of the firm is Rennett

Court will adjourn to-day, leaving a
great deal ol business unfinished. It
seems to us that there should be some
thing done to hive longer sessions, as
thoTC are a great many cases on the
docket th.;t mu- t necessarily be continued
for want of time to attend to them.
There are nearly 330 eases on (he docket,
and only about 30 have been finally dis
posed of this term. It is thought that
thoie will be a session called early in next
month, called by the County Commission

Editor Herald : This morning,
about 4 o'clock, I was arc-used from
slumber by the terrible cry of fire ! and
the ringing of bells. I hurried to dress
and out into the streets where I soon
learned the State Asylum for the Insane
was in flames. Hurrying to the bcene,
I gathered such of the particulars of the
fire as I could from the excited crowd.
The fire oiiginated in one of the rooms
in the upper story ; and it is supposed to
have been the work of one of the in
mates. It was first discovered by one of
the parties who gave the alarm. Watch
men hearing the c;y, hastened to release
and get out of the building the insano.
It is thought that three persons were
burned to death in the flames. It is
tolerably C3rtain that one peer fellow,
who was chained in the strong room, and
another who was so wild as to be un-
managcab e, perished. A mallet
and chisel were thrown
the chained man, but he probably suf-
located before he could release himself.
The other was taken from his room, but
managed to get lack again. The build
ing and furniture are a total lots Noth
ing was saved but a few maftra-ses and
chairs. As I sit Lean ?ce from my win
dow only tivotall chiiueys of stone left
standing, of what last niidit was one of !
the finest buildings in the State. This
is a terrible loss, aul cue which our
young State will feel, more than any
other. Sam. Ij Cannon.
Later I have learned since writing
the above that ten of the State pritoa
ers bored out of their cells and escaped,
some time in the night. I have not
learned the names of the prisoners nor
tho manner of their escape. More than
that they bored down through tho floor
of their cells, and escaped through some
of the dining room avenues. Will writu
particulars soon as I loam.
