FARM HOUSE BURNED
DOWN THREE MILES
WEST OF MURRAY
Yesterday morning quite a disas
trous fire occurred in the vicinity of
Murray, when the farm house oc
cupied by Henry Kirchner and family,
(wo miles south and three miles west
rf that place, was burned to th
ground. This house was located on
what is known as the old George
Edison farm, and was one of the oldest
i evidences in that locality, having been
built years ago. The origin of the
fire is supposed to have been from a
defective flue and the flames, getting
a good start, soon gutted the building
and it was with great didiculty that
any of the household goods could be
saved from the greedy flames. Ths
Maze was discovered in the partition
walls of the house through which th
thimney passed, and after its dis

About one-third of the household
goods of Mr. Krichner were save:!
