NORTH PLATTE, NEB:,- NOVEMBER 26, L915. No. 89 JKEATTY AM) 80ULKS GIVEN LIVEItY BAItX BURNS; INDETERMINATE SENTENCES !I0 HOUSES 1'EIJISIl i Io shortly after twolvo o'clock Tuesday night gutted the Interior of the North Slilo livery barn, a frame building llfty-four feet wide und 136 feet long, and resulted in the dea-.h of thlrty-slx horses and the loss of GOO bushels of grain and thirty or moro tons of buy. Twenty-two of the horses that perished belonged to far mers principally residents oC Mc pherson county and tho others be longed to tho bam. At tho time of tho lire thero were thirty-eight aui- mals in the stalls, but owing to the rapidity with which tho names spread only two were rescued, and theso by a farmer who was sleeping in tho hay loft nnd who owned tho animnls. Tho building wns owned by Julius MotronSen. havinc purchased it three years ago of F. W. Ilermingbausen, and ho operated the stable. .Mr. Mogenoen says tho ilro started In the, west end of the building which w& stored with hay. and ho is certain that It was due to ueiecuvo cieciric wiring, or tnai the wires in some manner nau uecomo disarranged. Percy Loudon, tho niht man, first discovered the , fire. Ho awakened the farmer sloping in the loft, sent In an alarm, and attempted to rescue somo of the horses, but the flames spread with such vrnpldlty that the west end of tho barn, was quickly a mass of Are, and under theso condi tions, the animals, fcarfiil of fire ns horses always are, could not bo driven from tho stalls. The fire department so6n had water playing on tho building and succeed ed In eventually checking the flames, but not until the Interior was practic ally gutted, while tho walls of the building on all sides remains intact, tho salvage on tho building will bo slight in fact it will be, necessary to tear down tho structure and rebuild, which Mr. Mogensen announces he will dq as soon as ho gets matters adjusted. An insurance of $3,000 was carried on the building and tho horses and other property "belonging to tho barn were lightly Insured. Mr. Mo gensen's net loss, however, will be several thousand dollars. The loss to farmers whoso hordes were burned will, In most Instances, be keenly felt. In several cases tho animals lost wero all tho owners pos sessed. . 1 Among the McPherson county losers were: Stoddard four head, Blasee four head, Gregg two, and Juvldent three. Capt. Slvltts and son, living in Myrtle precinct lost four ihcad. Willie Beatty and Warren Soulcs, who wore found guilty of cattle steal ing wero given nn indeterminate sen tence of from one to ten years each by Judge Grimes Wednesday forenoon. Tuesday evening, at tho request of tho two young men, William Beatty, who was surety for them, surrendered the bond, and they wore turned over to Sheriff Salisbury. They then re quested that sentenco bo pronounced upon them nt tho earliest posslblo time, and In pursuance of this re quest thoy were taken before Judge Grimes tho following morning and sen tenco Imposed. That this shadow should cross the life of Colonel Beatty and his estim able wife Is to be regretted exceeding ly. Tho error of a son cannot, howev er, ostrange tho friendship entertained for the Colonel by his many old-tlmo acquaintances in North Platte; It will only tend to strengthen the bond. - LOCAL A3?D PEHSONAL.
