Fire destroyed the house on T. A.
Pickering’s farm two miles south of
Emmet Monday afternoon. John Mar
ing and family resided on the place
previous to the fire. The fire left them
destitute of a home and destroyed all’
their clothing, bedding and household
goods. There was no one at home at
the time of the fire and the origin of it is
a mystery. Mr. Maring was away hay
ing and the rest of the family had gone
to a neighbors. Besides the property of
Mr. and Mrs. Maring’s, $54 in money, a
gold watch and some clothing belonging
to Miss Atkinson, who was there visit
ing, was also destroyed. The loss ou
the house will be betw'en $600 and $700,
Mr. Pickiring tells us, with $300 insur
ance. The fire was discovered by Mr.
Uhler, who was working in a hay field
not far away, but he could not get there
in time to save anything. Mrs. Maring
says there was no fire in the stove when
they left and is at a loss to account for
the fire. A milk house near the main
building was also burned.

The line will be completed to Ewing first

ably build to Chambers then.”
Asked if the franchises for the pro
prosed routes had been granted Mr.
Weekes responded that they had. “The
material for the line has been shipped
and will arrive in a few days. The
company will employ its own workmen
for the building of the lines and the
superintendency of the work will be in
charge of H. N. Hough of Pawnee City.

twenty-five street lights. There is no

Air is forced through several chambers
of the generator, and passed through
gasoline. This is kept up till the air is
converted into a dry hydrocarbon gas.
From the generator it passes into a dryer,

about 250 cubic feet of gas, or 1800 gal
