BARN BELONGING TO EDWARD
A GREAT LOSS OF GRAIN
Intense Smoke Nearly Strangled the
Firemen The Fire Lasted for
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

EARLHAM 'S SECOND TEAM
BOWS TO CENTRAL
WAS A HARD FOUGHT GAME
No' Score Being Made in the First
Half A Peculiar Play Was
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. Spiceland kicked
off in the. opening joj the half and
