BARN AND CONTENTS BE
LONGING TO JOHN GOGHE
NGUR DESTROYED BY FIRE
From Saturday's laily.
John llouchenour, who is engaged
in farming some four miles south of
this city on the island, is considera
bly loser as the result of a very dis
astrous lire that destroyed the large
hay barn on his place last Thursday
night. Mr. (Jouchcnour had been in
town and started home late in the
afternoon, as dusk was falling, and
as he neared home noticed! the blaze
reflected and stopped to discuss the
appearance of the fhv with a neigh
bor who was out in hi? van! watch
ing the blaze, and they all supposed
that it was over in the Iowa bottoms,
and it was not until he arrived home
that John discovered that the fire
was on his own place and that the
hay barn was the object being con
sumed by the blaze. The barn was
well filled with hay, there being close
to one hundred tons stored there, and
this was an entire loss, together with
the large bailer used in putting up
the hay. The hay was also sold at
$12.50 a ton and was awaiting deliv
ery to the purchaser, and Mr. Gouchc
enour will face a loss of some $1,500
as the result of the fire. This is the
second time that Mr. Gouchenour has
sunerel a loss by hie, as last year
the bay barn situated in the same
spot was wiped out Ly fire, and this
year the calamity is repeated. The
origin of the fire is unknown to Mr.
Gouchenour. although many hold that
it was caused by spontaneous com
bustion, but the real cause of the fire
will probably never fully be known.
Guardian Is nnointed.

matter of the appointment of a guar
dian for James S. Rough, incompe
tent, was brought up and on the
showing of the peti!:oners. John D.
