Last Saturday the fire bell rang
and fire was said to be burning
over in the northeast part'of town.
The hose cart was hooked onto a
dray wagon and hauled over there
but the fire was too far out for the
hose to reach and they had to haul
it back. It.was Jim Steadman's
bard that burned. Their chickens
and two pigs also burned. The
fire wras set by the oldest boy who
was playing with matches , we
hear , and started a little fire and
put it out all but a little and didn't
think it would burn.

perhaps , what might have happen
ed in any family. The f'unoral
was held Friday afternoon. Mr.
and Mrs. Olrasted have the sym
pathy of the entire community
and they in return wish to thank
their friends who assisted them to
bear their sorrowr and those1 who.
showed other kindnesses to them.
