    COUNTRY NEWS. -- FIRE AT SANDFORD. -- CASTERTON, Sunday.
    Whelan's general store at Sandford was burned down on Friday night through some curtains accidentally catching fire. The premises are owned by Mr. Lesser, of Coleraine, and insured in the London and Liverpool Globe Company for 300. The stock is insured for only 200 in the same office, so Mr. Whelan's loss will be heavy, as hardly anything was saved.
