Wirt County Court House Burned
Sunday morning at about 5 o'clock, the Court house at Elizabeth was
found to be burning. There were two prisoners in the jail, who discovered
the fire and gave the alarm. The contents in all the offices on the
first floor were saved, but all that was in the court room was burned.
Circuit court has been in progress at that place for the past week.
The building is supposed to have been set on fire, as there was no probable
way in which it could have originated otherwise.
