the purpose of burning off some high
weeds so he could not plow under, and
the wind was so strong it blew the
fire over the plowed furrows into an
adjoining field belonging to Mr.
Ghnes, burning all his stalk field, and
had it not been for hard work it
would have burnt Mr. Sterner out of
a house and home. The fire spread
over several large fields bcfoie it
could be gotten under control. People
should be more careful with fire,
especially in such a dry lime.r? This
one did considerable damage id stalk
fields and meadows and caused a
great deal of excitement. ' '-' ;
