A P*ctiiia* Fife • Botm McMullen fiafti The Henderson fire department was called to the R. W. McMnl- len farm 6% miles northeast of Henderson Tnesday evening of last week to what appeared to be a fire. Mr. McMnllen had a large hay barn with 65 tons of hay stacked In It and while there was no smoke seen there did seem to be a lot of heat about it. But, after examining and testing it as best they could there seemed to be nothing to do but await developments. Wednesday morning they went out again, but Jnst before they reached there the whole barn suddenly burst into flames as though there had been an explosion of gas and was soon past all help, so that all they could do was to keep the fire from spreading to other buildings. Spontaneous combustion seems to be the only" answer as to the cause. Large quantities of hay piled up, frequently become heated, but not often to this extent, causing fire. This is a severe loss to Mr. McMullen and only partially covered by insurance. H1LLSDALE Mr. and Mrs. Floyd Parker drove to Crab Orchard, Nebr.
