FIRES DESTROY ,
CHAIN AND HAY
Fourteen acres of barley in the
stack on the Kiest Ranch at
Sparta was completely destroyed
by fire at about noon last Friday.
H. J. Haskins, the owner of tho
grain, informs us that stacking in
that field had ben completed
shortly after 11 o'clock and the
orew had gone to tho house for
dinner, but before leaving he had
looked carefully around and scon
that everything was all right.
The fire was discovered by the
loouout on Buldy and the word
phoned to Mr. Kiest who hasten
ed to where Mr. Haskins arid the
crew wore and informed them,
but when the men arrived at the
field th3 fire had gained such
headway that nothing could bo
done except to prevent the flames
spreading to the stubble.
Investigation disclosed tracks
leading to and from tho stack,
those were followed for same dis
tance until lost among the rocks
and it is tho general opinion that
the fire was the woik of some
On Saturday afternoon, more
than ipp,tona of hay avail ''(Juried
on Frank Murray's ranch in Dry
by a passerby who gave the alarm
but nothing could be done except
to prevent the flames spreading
to other property.
About lOO tons was this year's
crop and belonged jointly to Mr.
Murray and Herb Lambert, and
a small stack containing about 20
tons of 1917 crop was the pro:
perty of J. A. Kirby.
Mr. Lambert Lad taken out in
surance on 50 tons a few days
previous to tho fire, but as tho
hay had never been divided no
adjustment has been made.
The firo was of incendiary or
igin without questioo and it is to
be hoped that the guilty parties
will soon bo apprehended.

"I like my, job fine, but if it's

diana, Ohio, Virginia and other
states. I'd lirfe to be home for a
day or two before I go across but
I can't for 1 might not get to go
oversea&v and believe roe. L am
home like cowards. Believe me
they're sure going to Lave some
name when the way is over j
standing back like d fools. It
makes my blood boil when I'think
of them; I sure would like to have
hold of them, I'd make them'look
down their nose. Next tirne you
hear from me I may be in France,

you I am, fighting for."
Lasf Saturday afternoon a large'
coyote attacked W. P. Davis' dog
at the Davis ranch on DalyjCreek
and had it not been for the aid of
Miss Ethel Davis, age 15 years,
the coyote would have come out
victorious. Seeing that the dog
could not master his adversary,
the plucky little miss secured" a
club and entered the fray, finally
succeeding in beating the coyote
to death. ' "
