Mr. Moul of Halcyondale Suffers A Heavy Loss.
HALYCONDALE, GA., Feb. 19.—The corn house and stables of J. J. B. Moul, a highly respected citizen of this county, burned to ashes this morning. The fire was of incendiary origin. Mr. Moul chanced to go to his water bucket about 2 o’clock this morning, from whence he saw his barn on fire. He rushed out and reached the fire just in time to see some one run off. He seems to know the villain who touched the match, and will spare no pains to bring him to justice. Had the fire not been discovered as soon as it was all the mules and horses of Mr. Moul would have been burned to death. He saved his mules and horses, but his harness, gearing, buggy, etc., were destroyed. The loss is several hundred dollars.
