About 8 o'clock last evening the
firo ulurm nounded and a Btreak of
liffht could bo seen t-hooting heaven

The worst featuro of the fire was the
fact thai a horse, cow and some pigs
in the barn were literally burned
alive, right in sight of the people who
were powerless to stop their horrible
sufferings. The stable was insured
for $100, so that the los9 will be
partly covered. The firo seemed to
have been the ronu.lt of an incendiary,
as no fire bad bteti sven in the building.

"The funeral of the late Rev. W. I.
Cutter will take place at 2 p. m. to
morrow. The services will be held at
the Kansas avenue M. E. church and
the burial will take place at Oak Hill
cemetery. While Mr. Cutter was for
many years an English Lutheran mis
sionary and minister, he had of late
years worshiped with the Methodists.
IJe was born in Germany in 1820 and
came to America with his parents at
the age of eight, settling at Louis
ville, Kentucky. In 1851, Rev. Cutter
went as a missionary of the Lutheran
church, to Madras, India, instead of
Africa, as was stated yesterday. He
took a sailing vessel which rounded
the Cape of Good Ilope, Africa, and
was on the sea for six months. His
experiences there were interesting. He
returned to America in 18o6 on ac
count of his wife's health, and served
churches in New York and Pennsyl
vania, and came west in 1857, locating
at Plattsmouth, Neb., but stayed only
a few years, when he returned to Penn
sylvania, and came west again in 1878,
and preached at Monrovia and Valley
Falls. His first sermon in Atchison
was preached in 1879. Besides a
widow, he leaves live children, .three
sons and two daughters, all of whom
are grown. Two children of the de
ceased, Mrs. Henry Waterbury and VV.
E. Cutter, were born in India, and are
now residents of Atchison."
