Perhaps some ofour subscribers arc
holding off to see if the Chief" isn't
jroing to die, to such we would say
that unless arunctSinr oarsidu the

We neglected last week to notice
an accident which happened at
Mr. Foam's, by which a IJoheinean
boy Inst his left arm. He was play

about III acres of wheat by prairie fire
recently. Mr. Ralph, it appears, was
burning fire guards, and the escaped
from him while the- wind was very
high, and was carried directly to the
wheat stacks of Mr. Arnold which
were consumed. A little "onpleas-antne-s"
between the parties
resulted from- the- acci
dent, but we are told" the affair is set
tled, Mr. Ralph agreeing to pay $170
for the wheat that was destroyod.
