Thb Roanoke Times Bureau, ) Hotel Lucerne, Salem, Va. f Judge Blair rendered his decision in the case of Adams, Clement & Co., vs. W. T. Trevilian, Mrs. D. R. Beale and S. B. Libert. The facts were that a certain lot below the Norfolk and Western railroad on Union street belonged to Mrs. D. R. Beale, who rented this land at $10 per month. W. T. Trevilian built thereon a small store. The carpenter and material man not having been paid, a lien was filed against the property.

The court decided that Trevilian should be given thirty days to pay the same, otherwise execution against the house and lot. This will be interesting to lumber dealers, as...
