D., Jan. 10—Oeorge Oakes. while starting a fire in a stove on the Pete Reeder farm in Grand Rapids township, was badly burned about the face, hands and legs. He started th,!s particular fire by pouring on what he supposed was Kerosene, which proved to be gasoline, and when the match was applied there was a terrific explosion. Instantly th room in the house and Mr. Oakes' clothing were afire. He evidently for. got about himself for when John Schmidt, who happened to be passing at the time, was dumbfounded to see a man a living firebrand, hoisting furniture out of windows. Upon Mr. Schmidt's arival the fire was all out. He at once proceeded to the relief of the burning man, extinguishing the flames as quickly as possible, but not before the above fatal result. The injured man was taken to t'ne ••-r at Edgeley Mr. and Mrs. Reeder were not at home at the time of th" accident, and Mr. Oakes, who was employed by Kinney's was looking after the fires! The house escape! with a blacking, caused by the smoke :stiv BEACH WANTS MORE FIRE PROTECTION 'BEACH, Jan. '0.—A fire alarm was turned in from the Farmers' Elevator on Tuesday morning, which brought lout the engine and a good sized crowd of men notwithstanding the severe cold of the weather. The fire was found in the northeast corner of the engine room quite for removed combustible material, and as the wind was in a favorable quarter there proved to be no difficulty in puting out the flames. This fire, however, together with the later one which devastated the Russel-Miller elevator, serves as a strong reminder of the ned of more adequate fire protection in Beach. It is reported that a small fire was dice -ered at Dickinson'* Big Store early Monday forenoon, resuiting from the necessity of overheating the furnace during the excessively cold weather. Every event of this kind fuither emphasizes not only the need of effective fire-fighting equipment, but also the need of great caution with stoves, furnaces, pipes and flues during the colder portions of the winter.

D., Jan. 10—That the the month of December was a heavy one in tax payments for Billings county is shown by a statement made by the county treasurer's office this week to the effect that a total of $27,940.46 was receieved by the county on tax payments and other income items dur. ing the month just closed. Nearly all of this amount was paid for taxes alone. The remainder was for interest on school lands sold and for rental of released school lands. The treasurer's office is working overtime getting out statements of 1911 taxes, while continuing to get in payments for 1910 and preceding years. It is claimed at the county seat that the activity of Sheriff Nelson will result in getting in a good deal of back tax money which had been left uncollected by previous incumbents of the office and it is believed the county will be considerably a gainer by the increased effectiveness of the service. CRAZED WITH BOOZE THREATENS TO KILL LEAD. S. D., Jan. 10—A hurry-up call summoned Chief of police Keffler and several of the force who were o:i duty at 11 o'clock this morning to the Laitala & Hill rooming block, where they found a man whose name is said to be Ole Peterson, with a Colt automatic in one hand and a six-shooter in the other, holding four men in a room with the warning words "I will shoot the first man that moves." He said (further that after he had killed a policeman he was going to kill himself. For more than an hour he kept the four men standing there with the guns pointed at them while the police were trying for a chance to get the handcuffs on him. They were at last successful, while he was taking a drink of liquor the police closed in on him and he was in their power. The man was drunk and no doubt insane while making the rash statements. He was lodged in the city jail and placed in chains. It was a state warrant that was issued for his arrest. During the hour that he kept the boys in the room he kept up a flow of language to the effect that he was going to kill all the police force and himself, and as several heard him utter these words he will no doubt face a serious charge in court.
