L, Lund's large barns burned Sunday night about 11 o'clock. The barn rtnd everything in it was a total loss. Mr. Lund's loss will approximate $5,000. The building was insured for $700 but there was no insurance on the contents. There were were three driving horses in the barn at the time of the fire besides a fine Norman stallion worth about $2,000. When the fire was discovered the horses were all down and it was impossible to save them. The stallion was in the extreme south end of .the building, but it seems that the fire originated in that locality. The barn contained a quantity of hay and of course burned very rapidly. Within 15 minutes from the time the building must have caught, the entire structure* was in flames. Besides the stable the building contained a chicken house, granary, tool house, feed mill and the farm machinery. 2,500 bushels of oats, 1,000 bushels of corn, and several hundred bushels of barley were lost. The windmill standing at the north end of the barn went with everything else. How the fire started will perhaps forever remain a mystery. Two of the hired men visited the barn about 15 minutes before the fire was noticed, and everything was quiet. The fire alarm sounded about 11 o'clock but the building burned so rapidly that nothing was left to save by the time the fire company reached the ground. EMINENT DOCTOR'S I'RESCRIl'TION. Dr. C. P.

A gentleman in New York, the owner of one of the finest collections of butterflies in the < country, hoe made an experiment which proves conclusively that butterflies are endowed not only with bright colors, but with marvelously acute senses. Out of his collection, com-t prising almost every known variety, he chose two butterflies which were only two or three days old, and had never had their freedom. One of these ho attached securely by a thread to the fence in the rear of his house in the upper part of New Y»rk. He marked the other so that he could identify it, and placing it in a small box carried it down town to one of the f erries, across the river to Hoboken, and some distance into the city of Hoboken. Here it was turned loose. When the experimenter reached his house, several hours later, he found the two butterflies side by side on his back fence. The butterfly which was but just born, and had never before had its liberty, had traveled several miles, crossed » wide river and promptly found its way back to its mate in one of those back yards of New York which are almost indistinguishably alike in their ugliness. This seemed a most extraordinary feat to one of a party of gentlemen to whom the story was told by the experimenter, and he asked a well known naturalist whether it could be believed. The naturalist answered that the sense of smell, which was undoubtedly in this case the butterfly's guide, was in many animals so wonderfully acute that to him the case did not seem remarkable, much less unbelievable.— -Youth's Companion. Growth of Yacht Agencies. Nothing shows the growth of yachting in America more than the growth of the yacht agency. If a man wants to buy, sell or charter a yacht he goes to a yacht agency, In a large New York agency a list can be found of every yacht for sale or for charter in the United States and England. Every detail concerning them is also there en 1 record. Besides this there is a list of the yachts which the proprietor of the agency has on hand for sale or charter. This is not all. Crews, sailing masters, and all sorts of appliances for yachts are furnished by the agency. From small beginnings the yacht agencies have become large and well paying business enterprises,— New York Tribune. A few bolts of Jamestown goods will be sold at lOc per yard,- Call early. (Gf.
