--About ten o'clock Saturday night the stable of Dr. F. W. Hancock, in the rear of his residence, on Main street, between 3d and 4th, was set on fire by some incendiary.
Fortunately it was soon discovered by the hostler and extinguished before doing much damage.
The fire brigade were promptly on the ground, but their services were not brought into requisition.
