their ranch, about three miles down the
valley, was consumed by fire, along with
several tons of hay, gr, grain, harness, four
calves, tools, &c. Before the fire was dis.
covered it had gained such headway that
was apparent that It could not lbe headed
off, consequently all their efforts were di
rected toward saviug such property as
could be removed. Will Ford had a team
of horses in tile barn, which was all that
could be saved before tle lire mnade it hm.
possible to re-enter the building. The
loss is about $2,500, uninsured. The barn
was new, having been built this season.
It is thought the lire was started by some
tramp who had engaged lodging for the

the fire started.

will require my personal attention, I find
it will not be convenient to fulfill the of.

that I will not be a candidate, but will
withdraw in favor of Joseph Kauffman, a
deserving young man, who will be able to
devote his whole time to this very imnpor.
