Blue Mound.

Jeff Slavens, a colored man living near Montgomery, had a number of our carpenters at his place last week, putting a roof on a new stone barn. Mr. Slavens has built a two story stone barn 60x80 feet in dimensions. He began this building three years ago, and has worked on it odd times along until at last it was completed. and now he has one of the best barns in the section, and one that will stand for a hundred years to come.
