Garrison Granary Fire, Walnut Stump


The granary belonging to Jerry Garrison, of Walnut Stump, was destroyed by fire Tuesday night. Loss about five hundred dollars. The fire is thought to be the work of an incendiary. Any one who would do a thing of this kind would look well at the end of a rope which lacked about eight feet of touching the ground.
