1'INE BARN ON BERARD
FARM BURNED MONDAY
Fire Discovered About Noon While
Owner Was Away From Home—
Insurance Will Only Cover
Small Portion of Loss
The lino.Inrge barn on the P. '.
Meranl farm, u milo west of the south-
west eorner of town, on Turkey crook,
was totally ilostroyed Monday l \ n
lire that apparently started near tli
door at the renter of the strurturr.
The insurance of $ 1,."()( on the build
ilift; and #400 on the hay, will poyi r
but a portion of the loss.
Mr. and Mrs. Berard had tfone fo
Knid in the morning to consult an oe-
• nlist, and tlie fire gained great hoad
way before its discovery by Messrs.
Henry Pooler and L. <\ Murray and
but a small portion of the contents of
the barn could be saved. The sheep
shed 1*4x72 feet, about eighty feet
h'oni the barn, was also burned, but
the machine shed, about two hundred
feet to the southwest of the barn, was
saved through the efforts of the nei-
Hqsidos the bam the fire loss in
cludos about so ton of alfalfa, 40 bu-
shel of wheat, 25 bushels of corn,
three sets of harness and much other
personal property that had been stored
in the building.
The barn was one of the finest in
this part of the county and was built
several years ago bv P. p. Sylvester,
from whom Mr. Berard bought the
farm, and could hardly be replaced at
present time for less than $2,">00.
The origin of the (ire is a my tor/.
No new alfalfa had been placed in the
building since May, which explodes
the theory of combustion from heating
of the hay.

Miuumi, Okla., on a business trip
