Tay- ing engine and the flames spread be fore neighbors could be called to ex tinguish them. Several loads of wheat bundles were standing near the separator, where a spark from the steam en gine landed directly between two horses belonging to one of Wm, Tay lor's boys. The straw caught readily and the flames shot up, burning the horses to death before they could be driven away. A large straw stack by the separator caught and the sparks from the burning stack were blown over the field- The wind swept the fire on towards a large elevator in which Mr aTylor stores an , grain. Neighbors came to the assistance and put out the fire be - fc,re it reached the elevator. The ,.,,, wag three quarters of a' mile from the houg ebut U)e fiel(, 0f' wlleat bu,.ned al, tne way to the farm buildings While many of the men were keeping the fire back from the ele vator, the separator, belonging to Ben Fielder, caught and was eom ' pletely destroyed. Little effort was spent in trying to save the separator is It was Burrounded by dry straw and wheat bundles- vTvvo- lack wag ons and two wheat wagons were also ; burned but the other teams were I driven from the clanger zone. The I steam engine was the only thing that was not destroyed within a radius of half a mile. ('. W. Taylor's loss Is estimated at ?2..r-mi and Mr. Fielder's at $2,500 or $li,00(l. None of the property was insured. : ., ; , F you are a business man, if you are a pro fessional man, if you are employed at a daily wage, make up your mind to deposit weekly a certain sum of money in the bank. You'll be surprised how the sum will grow. Cash in bank fingers up the man who has ( it there. He has more confidence in him self. The business man is ready for a dull season. He is ready for an opportunity. So is the professional man. The man who is work ing for a daily wage and who hasn't any money in bank f,ciuent!y is fearful of a loss of his situation. He does i.'.t work as well or with the confidence in himself as d"e.; the man . ith something laid aside for a rainy day. BUILD IV YOUB BANK ACCOUNT.
