ASPERMONT, Tex., Aug. 9. - Stonewall county courthouse, a two-story frame structure, burned this morning at 2 o'clock, entailling a loss of $4,000 to $5,000 to the county. All records of the county judge, sheriff and tax collector, and most of the surveyor's records were burned. No insurance was carried on the building or contents.
