* From " Notes on Building Stones," by Dr. Hiram Cutting, Montpelier, Vt., 1880.

" The experience of the citizens of North Arkansas is that marble is much superior to the sandstone in withstanding heat, and because of this fact, where chimneys are built of sandstone the fireplaces are lined with marble,"
