Fire Near Kratterville.
. t;
On Wednesday morning the barn
with all its contents, near Krutzer
ville, on ihc Martin Matirer farm
was burned to the ground, at about
." 30 a. m. Mr. Maurer was up
uirly and started away with his
team, his wife turned out the cows
and every tiling was alright, and
iu a short lime after the larn was
in flames, how the Are started is a
mystery. The on!y cause thus far
determined on, is that tramps lodged
in the barn and by the use of
matches fired the Irnrn as a Iwx of
matches was found only a fhort
distance from the Imrn, proluibly the
tramps vere using matches in the
barn and the straw or hay was set
afire in this way, and wss burning a
slow name wiuic wr, juaurer was
yet at home, but as farmers generally
liave their fowl all prciwired for. the
morning Mr. Maurer did not go to
the upiier floor of the barn and did
not discover the Are, this is sunixxs-
cd the cause, but the fact how the
fire originated is notknown. How
ever it is a heavy loss to Mr. Maur
cr and we sympathize with him.
