Special: The country home of James Wler was badly damaged by fire Sunday morning. Mr. and Mrs. Wier had gone to church about seven-thirty and their son, Wm., was getting some cattle that were out along the road when he noticed the smoke coming out the basement windows. He went at once to the neighbors for aid and the general alarm was given. It was not long before a large enough crowd had gathered to bring the fire under control. The fire seemed to have originated in the pile of cobs and It Is' thought to have been caused by spontaneous combustion. The entire north wall of the basement where ;he cobs were stored was burned and ;he fire had eaten Its way outside In two different places. The Joists were also burned as was a sheep lined coat which Mr. Wier had hung In the furnace room. The fire was coming through onto the flrst floor when the volunteer fire fighters brought It into control. Beside the damage the fire did, the water soaked the furnishings on the flrst floor and the smoke ruined the walls which had just been redecorated. All food supplies, even the potatoes in the basement had been smoked so badly that none can be eaten. They had their summer meat put away and Mrs. Wler had a large amount of baked goods and all were ruined by the smoke. This makes the third fire for these people, two large barns burning within six years. The Wiers feel very grateful to the neigh- hnvo mVirt U,, *U«i.. _.-i_,- _ *»v*5»* -- • ^— "^-™^™«™^ Sharp B|]y8 Iowa I »!,„ n O •!• Lake Dance Pavilion.
