The dwelling house of Jonas
Johnson, town of Mamie, was
destroyed bv tire last Friday,the
lot of this month. The tire
caught through the burning out
of the chimney. The men were
not at home at the time so that
the tire got the headway and
burned the building to the
ground. Mr. Johnson's dwelling
was oue of the finest houses in
that section. We have not learned
whether he was insured, but at
any count it was a serious loss
and great inconvenience to be
burnt out at this time of the year.
The Willmar Tribune will also
contain an agricultural column
edited by Hon. N. Quam. Mr.
Quam is"a native of this State,
born and raised in Steele county,
and has been a resident of this
county for many years. He
knows from practical experience
just about what can be done un
der our conditions of soil and cli
mate and will, we doubt not,
make the column interesting
reading for farmers. We will al
so have special correspondents
