House Burned and Family Left Destitute-Bar-

Bakdt, Feb. 10. Last Wednesday while
Mr. Erickson and bia wife and son were in
tbe city, and only the little children at
borne, the bouse took fire near the ceiling
and a moment after was in flames. Those
at home were helpless and could not save
anything, and the bonse and the entire con
tents belonging to two families were con-
teamed. There was no insurance on the
' bouse and it will be a total loss. It is a sad
blow for Mr. Erickson. He ia poor with a
. large family of children whose mother was
killed several years ago by a logrolling over
' ier. These misfortunes leave the family in
-Our debates gfow lit Interest at every
bieeting. Tbe question ror discusnion on
Saturday, February 9 was, "Resolved,
That women should have tbe right of suf
frage equal with men." Tbe affirmative
was led by Joel Jarl and tbe negative by
Ed Brims. After two hours of lively talk

Still the road talk goes on as lively as

Whet will be one of the main topics of com
vernation soon wiil be the choice of What
road to Improve, as we have two roads be
tween here and Pleasant Home. One is
known aa "the old stage road" and the
other as "the new road." But it seems to
be the general opinion of the people to im
prove the new road as it runs through the
center of our settlement, is a half mile
nearer, and has no hills while the other has,
and for these reasons the new road should
be tbe one to improve, and no doubt will
be; but kicking ia sure to come from tbe
residents along the old road.
One Important matter our legislature
abould not forget, and that Is for the state
to purchase the Barlow toll road and make
it free ror everybody to travel on.
