VACANT FARM HOUSE BURNED
Ro.idenc on Old John S. Taylor
Ptaco Consumed by Fir
Many of our people were attract
ed by a reflection of fire In the
sky to the north of town Sunday
night, the fire appearing to be
about the,east end of Tygh Valley
or in the neiuhborhood of Sherare
Bridge. Investigation, however, re
vealed the fact that the fire occurr
ed on the old John S. Taylor ranch,
below the power plant on White
The place has been unoccupied
for about ftp years. It formerly
was known as the R. C. Tunison
ranch and contained a small house
and several outbuildings, including
fair size barn. The hou.e was en
Mrely consumed. There seems to be
no idea as to how th fire started,
although some suppose that itiner-
ent travelers may have been there
at the time of the fire and to have
carelcs ly thrown a lighted match
or cigarette stub into dry refuse.
