Several loads of wheat bundles
were standing near the separator,
where a spark from the steam en

horses belonging to one of Wm, Tay

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

ing their names and ages, and he
will have to show that he Is support
ing his family and that the family
Ih depending on him for support.
The wile will then make a sworn
statement separate from the husband
telling of the support that was fur
nished by him in the last year and
as to whether or not she is depend
ing entirely on his earnings mental
and physical for support. She Is re
quired to state If she has any other
source of income from rents, Inter
ests or In an estate aside from that

A third statement has to be made
by some one familiar with the affairs
of the family who can testify that the
inn n is the sole supporter of his

ably make this statement.
