Special Correspondence of The Constitution.
Cedartown, August 17---The splendid residence of Colonel J. O. Waddell,
situated near this place, was entirely consumed by fire at 7 o'clock p.m. on
yesterday. Loss $5,000 to $6,000; insurance $3,000. The greater part of the
furniture was saved. A team of mules belonging to Major Sam Byrd was drowned
in Cherokee mill pond yesterday afternoon. They were left untied, and
evidently went to the pond to drink and fell in. The water at that point was
ten feet deep. (The Atlanta Constitution, Atlanta, GA, August 18, 1882)
---Mr. R. O. Pitts has moved from Cedartown to Atlanta. (The Atlanta
Constitution, Atlanta, GA, August 27, 1882)
