Lack of Water System Nearly
Was to Blame.

Klro ! Fire ! This was the cry heard
nil over town a llttlo after S o'clock
last night. The church bells rang and
people ran from every direction think
ing that It was the school house. John
VanScoInk thought ho would burn
the tall weeds on his garden patch ,
just northwest of the school house ,
and ho no sooner started thollro when
tbo wind raised and It got beyond his
control. As the grass was pretty
thick and tall tbo lire spread at an
alarming rate , fanned by the high
- * 'lnd , and It looked for a time as If
Jlov , Drais' barn , the parsonage ,
church and everything would go up
in smoke. Hut a crowd of men , wo
men and children soon arrived and
managed to get control of the flro.
"With the stiong wind from the west
there Is no telling where the damage
si would have stopped had not prompt
action on the part of a few put the
lire out. Again the town Is reminded
that it needs some lire protection.
This question will not be worth con
sidering and the matter will bo neg
lected until Wlnsido has a fire that
will destroy part of the town. It Is
no time to lock the barn after the
horse Is stolen. Wlnside Tribune.

Child Adopted In Sioux City and Heir
to Nebraska Fortune May
Lose Legacy.
Sioux City , Iowa , Oct. 27. Upon
the question of the validity of the
adoption of a child six years ago de
pends the dispensation of an estate
of $80,000 left by James H. Blenklron
of Ilartington , Neb. Suit was brought
three weeks ago at Ilartington , Nob. ,
by three brothers and six sisters of
Mr. Blenkiron. Leonard Blenklron of
Coleridge , Neb. , who was interested
In property with the deceased , Is the
only one who declined to participate
in the legal tight and ho has been
made a defendant. J. E. Blenklron
of Sioux City Is one of the plaintiffs.
James H. Blenkiron and wife came
to Sioux City six years ago to llnd
a child to adopt and upon the recom
mendation of Mrs. J. A. Thurston , po
lice matron , took homo with them a
1-months-old baby.son ofNcttieSmlth ,
Four years later Mr. Blenklron was
killed by the editor of a Belden news
paper in an altercation over the pub
lication of an article.
He loft no will , so under the Ne
braska law , the property became the
life estate of Mrs. Blenklron , to bo
inherited by the son after her death.
Mr. and Mrs. Blenklron became at
tached to the child. Karl LeRoyBIcnk-
Iron , and the widow , who has since
married Henry Globlnk of Alton , la. ,
has employed Judge R. E. Evans of
Dakota City to defend. The plaint
iffs are represented by Judge Robin

entirely of whether or not the adop
tion of a son under Iowa laws by
Nebraska parents was legal.

Nothing to Set the Fire.
There was nothing to set the lire ,
There Is no explanation save that of
spontaneous combiislloii and from
this , above all other things , are
matches supposed to bo free. The
boxes themselves wore closed an
they always are In manufaclurlng

wrapping of paper. Vet all of this
was not enough to prevent , the heat

Explains Many Mysteries.
Just this Incident , Insignificant as
It Is in Itself , may explain many
mysteries in the tire line and may
reveal the start of many blazes that
are discovered In the night and for
which there Is never any definitely
known cause. Very many llros have
occurred in the history of Norfolk for
which no reason could IK ; assigned
and It Is possible that Just such a
voluntary lighting of matches may
have done the mischief.
"Wo have often received boxes of
matches from the factory , " said P.
A. Slinrlz , one of the proprietors of
the Fair store , "and It Is not at all
uncommon lo discover that some of
the beads of the matches have al
ready been burned. "
