The recent lire at Belmont, which
destroyed the large barn of J.T. O'Neill,
on the Meredith place, was doubtless an
incendiary one, and as a number of
bones were found in the ruins, directly
under the haymow, while no cattle were
kept in the building, it is surmised that
a tramp perished in the flames. It is
suggested that the hobo probably took
shelter in the barn for the night, and
accidentally set the hay on tire by a
spark from his pipe.
