Wednesday afternoon some small boys were playing in the barn belonging to the house of W. P. Arnold in the south part of town, occupied by Mr. Byrd, and they accidentally set fire to it. With several bales of hay the structure was completely destroyed. Adjoining houses were in danger for a while, but a little effort on the part of the citizens prevented further spread. A moral lies in this: there is danger in a combination of the small boy, matches and hay.
