The insurance on the large barn

Wherever prairie fires can do dam
age to hfiy, buildings, fences, or oth
er property, extra! precautions and
safeguards must be taken this fall,
to protect against loss. This year
there is a heavy growth of grass and
fire well started will sweep over
much territory. Ordinary fire guards
will not be a certain protection this,
year. Considerable ploughing will
be necessary around -farm homes to
protect them. Hay-left in the field
will surply. be destroyed should a
fire run over the prairie. All hay
should therefore be hauled and-stack7
ed on ploughed fields where it. can
be protected.
The three most common sourceq
of fires are engine sparks, fire from
cjgar or cigarette stubs and camp
A. R. Thompson autoed last week
thru -east central Minnesota and Was
greatly surprised at the remarkable
improvements, progress an dappar
ent prosperity or that part of the
state, which had come about since
h}s last visit there in 1897. That
section of Minnesota, then was but a
stump- country of brush, second
growth timber, and sand. Now -it
has beeri cleared and the little, stag
nant villages of those days become
prosperous, up-to-date cities states
Mr. Thompson. Asking a resident
the source of the evident, prosperity
the reply was "cows and potatoes.'1
That land which a few years ago, af
ter the timber was. cut, didri't seem
worth 10 cents an acre, now is held
at flOO.an acre. It cost about $40.00
an acre to clear the land of Btumps
and bring the soil up to a productive
point with clover and stock, but the
result have been worth' the invest
ment. and' now the' farmers in that
vicinity would not think of depend
ing-upon grain crops for their source
of income.

The large barn of Andrew F.
Stoddart, six miles southwest of
Jamestown was struck by lightning
and burned to the ground Sunday
inorning, during the storm that
spread over many parts of Stutsman
cpunty. One valuable horse was lost
in the fire, 50 tons of hay and 100
bushels of oats. Loss was partially
covered by insurance.
The same storm also broke heav
ily farther south, reports Harry Span
ton, with much hail that added to
the hail damage of early August in
that vicinity, the hail damaging grain
in the shock. Loss of
and bar­
ley, feed crops will be keenly felt
this winter, states Mrl Span ton.
Threshing has been resumed in
parts of Stutsman county after Sun
day's rain, which was lighter south
east, than north of Jamestown.
After about six weeks delay wait
ing for steel girders and other mater
ial, work was resumed on the Mason

by Contractor Klarquist in the Min
nesota Tranfer yards, set out to one
side and marked "bad order".
Bricklaying and other work is now
going on and it is expected the rpof
will be in place the last of this week.
The new building will be a substant
ial improvement to the business
buildings in the city.
The rain of Sunday has made a
noticeable difference in the color of
pastures and ve'getation of all kinds
is benefitted. Grass was hecoiriing
very dry from the long absence of
rain.' The work of threshing which
Sunday's rain stopped was resuriied
today in several localities. The first
