pected that the end would come. j
It was a great shock and surprise

night A1 Whittington barn was
burned, Mr. Ramsey ran quite a
ways to help extinguish the blaze
and afterwards took cold. His con-
dition became serious at once and .
nothing could he done apparently j
to check his illness. Definite a j
