Sunday forenoon at about 11:30 o'clock
tire broke out in Victor Reed's residence
three and a half miles south of St. Ed

and by ihe lively work of a bucket bri
gade the fire was after about thirty
minutes hard work, extinguished. Tom Scanlan, Dave Preble,
Gene Collins, and Parker Stevens,
neighbors of Mr. Reed's assisted very
f 'materially in the work of the bucket
brigade. A match is supposed to have
been under the trunk, and the trunk
having been moved out from the wall
j that morning, it is presumed in some
way ignited the match. The loss sus

covered by insurance. Carl, Mr. Reed's
eldest son, in breaking in the windows,
cut his hands quite bad, but his injuries,
while very painful, are not considered
to be of a serions nature. Boone Coun

Nebraska among whom Mr. Swarts
ley stands well to the head.

plaint of Valasek for disturbing the
peace in the latter saloon and fined $10
