Two Farm Barns Burned.
The barn of Ira II. Brooks located near
the Tylersburg road in Green township,
was burned to the ground together with
all contents, as Ihe result of a lightning
stroke during tbe storm wblcb passed
over tbis section between three and four
o'clock Saturday morning. One calf was
also cremated, the balance of tbe livestock
being saved. Mr. Brooks bad only a few
days previously stored bis aummer's
crop of bay and grain in the barn, all of
which was burned up, as well as nearly
all bis farm machinery, Implements and
vehicles. Tbe loss is estimated at more
than a thousand dollars, on which, we
understand, he carried 500 Insurance.
This misfortune falls very heavily upon
one of tbe community's most worthy
A large farm barn owned by Herman
Blum at Newtown Mills, was burned,
together with all Its contents, Friday
night last. Two sous of Mr. Blum bad
gone to tbe barn after night-fall to attend
tbe atock and do the chorea, taking a
lantern with them. They bad turned tbe
cattle out and taken a horse aod colt to
tbe pasture field a short distance away,
leaving the lantern bung up In tbe barn.
A few minutes afterward, or about 9
o'cIock, Mr. Blum discovered tbe fire,
and with tbe belp at band was able to run
tbe wagon, wblcb still held a load of bay
that bad been brought in during tbe evening,-out
of the barn, and this wss
practically all that was saved. Several
tons of hay, a wagon, buggy, horse rake,
cultivator and other (arming Implements
and a large quantity of material used in
the lumber woods, such as bob sleds,
chains, axes, and the like, were con
sumed." Tbe barn, although built some
yeara ago, was a substantial frame struc
ture and was In good condition, and
could not be built now for wbat it origi
nally cost, so tbat Mr. Blum's loss Is
quite heavy. He carried an Insurance in
tbe Former's Mutusl of 400 on tbe barn
and 300 on tbe contents, wblcb represents
scarcely half bis loss. Tbe explosion of
tbe lantern Is supposed to have been tbe
cause of the fire.

his long and useful life. The poet bas
well said, "All the world's a stage and
man is but an aotor; and man In his
time plays many parts," There are no
exceptions to this truth In human life.
Io youth be was a sailor, tbe ambition of
many New England youths. Being nat
urally fond of adventure, we find hi in
crossing tbe plains en route Io California
with a train of "prairie schooners." Tbia
trip was full ol adventure, and near Fort
Brldgor the party were forced to corral
tbeir train aud fight Indians, who at
tempted to capture it. The caravan re
mained at Fort Bridger, on tbe edge of
tbe Rocky Mountains, for nearly a
month. After an experience In the min
ing regions common to tbe pioneers, be
sailed for Australia and remained there
for some time, after which he came to
Chicago and from there came to Tionesta
in 1861, and engaged in busluess with
Kelly, Holmes Co., at which time he
also launched out In Ihe oil business at
Pitbole and tbe Green Farm, In which
business he wss highly successful.
The 10th day of November, 1862, marks
tbe date of bis marriage wltb Josephine
May, who survives him, daughter of tbe
late Huntington H.and Frances A. May,
early and well known residents ol Tlo
nesta. Tbeir married life was an Ideal
one, rearing a large and useful family,
viz: Bertba, deceased, intermarried with
Edmund Bleakley, of Krauklin, Pa.;
Augusta, deceased, married to Charles
Vassar, of Chicago; William M., Bessie
L., deceased, married to Nelson A.Steele,
of Waukegan, III.; Dr. John B., Jr., a
prominent physician of Houston, Texas;
Huntington May, and Archibald K, In
tbe year 1867 tbe family moved to Wau
kegan, which has since beeu their home.
After this very brief sketch of his in
teresting and useful life, the following
miiibt be added: He was a paragon of
Industry-cheerful temperament, frank
In short, a natural man, quick to make
friends and possessing tbe faculty of re
taining them. He delighted to tell ol his
many Interesting travels aud adventures,
and was an excellent story teller. Kind
not only to himself, but to all whom he
could help aud comfort. His idea of
serving Ciod was to serve his fellow man,
believing with an emliiMil American
theologian who called this kind of ser
vice "The perfection of religion." His
friends will long miss him; miss bis
cheerful, cordial greeting, and the "touch
of a vanished hand." a. li. I.
