Farmers and town people should be very careful at present in setting fire to brush, rubbish and dry grass.  We have had no rain since the snow disappeared several weeks ago and the sun and high wind are drying things up in great shape. Secretary Ure of he Lynn Mutual Fire Insurance Co. informs us that not less than eight losses of barns and houses in different parts of the county were reported to him as the result of brush fires and the high wind of last week Thursday.  A house about 5 miles south of here on the old Darling place which was occupied by a bachelor, and a barn belonging to Herman Krause west of here were destroyed by fire on that day.  There was no insurance on either.  If it had not been for the prompt assistance of a number of residents this village might have been reduced to ashes. Chas. Guth absent mindedly dropped a burning match after lighting his pipe back of his creamery and before he had time to realize what he had done the fire, fanned by the high wind spread with such rapidity as to be beyond his control and when assistance arrived the flames had already found their way into the dry sawdust pile near the ice house.  A number of windmills and silos were either blown down or otherwise badly damaged by the wind that day.

A. J. Breed of College Place, Wash., in a letter to his sisters Mrs. John Fuller and Laura Mason informs them that he had recently returned from a conference in Alberta, Canada, and while there took special note of the general condition of land and climate, and has come to the conclusion that it is far the best country he has seen yet for anyone wishing to take up a homestead.  He also states that Addie Davis who for several years has been making her home with him has become quite a successful chicken raiser.
