A SERIOUS STABLE FIRE BARN BELONGING TO EDWARD STEGMAN A GREAT LOSS OF GRAIN Intense Smoke Nearly Strangled the Firemen The Fire Lasted for Twp Hours. Fire was discovered last night in Hne uu'? stable belonging to Edward it. Megman, at iweiitu ana.coum D streets about .1:30. .When the fire department arrived the entire roof was ablaze and the fire was rapidly spreading. Prompt action on the part of the fire department soon ex tinguished this blaze, but the fire in the meantime had spread to the large quantities of hay, straw and oats which were stored in the barn. The firemen found the work of ex tinguishing the blaze in the grains a very hard one and most of the straw and hay had to be thrown out on the side walk. The blaze in the building did not cat cli any place else except in the roof. The barn is practically a new one and one of the largest in the city. The hay and straw will be a complete loss, but it is thought that the large quantity of oats can be saved.' The firemen found the fire difficult to fight, as the smoke was so thick that many of them were nearly strangled, but a little fresh air soon revived them. The lire lasted over two hours and a large - n umber - of - people were at traded : to the-' scene, but -the blaze was not a ; spectacular one and con sequently the curiosity of a number of them was soon satisfied. Mr. Stegman stated last night that the t loss would be at least 000 and probably more.

Yesterday afternoon , the Farlhaci scrubs were beaten by the Central Academy team, of Spiceland, 12 to o. The Farlhamites had a narrow es cape from having eighteen points rolled up against them and their ouo lone touchdown was in the nature of a lluke. The Keserves put up a good fight, however, and were only tlefeated through the better team work of the visitors. Central's back field was fast and they follow ed up their plays to a lietter advau tage than did the Quakers. In the first half neither team scored, but the Reserves were on the defensive nearly all of. the time. Every inch of ground was hotly contested by the Earlhamites and when the time was called Central had the ball on Earlham s two foot line. - Exhausted by the fierce attacks, of Central in the first half the plucky defense of the Quakers was broken in the second half and the Spiceland boys bucked their way through 'for two touch downs.
