loss on Wednesday night by a fire
which entirely destroyed his dwel
ling and several outbuildings,

of the flames, and oi going out
they saw the whole upper story in
Practically nothing in the dwel
ling house was saved. low many
of the outhouses or how much of
their contents 'were burtned could
not be definitely learned.
The dwelling was comparatively
new and was a modern two-story
frame structure. It was learned
yesterday that Mr. Folk carried
about $5oo in-surance, though this

would cov only a small part of
the reported loss.
