Lost Life in a Burning Barn
A four years-old daughter of James O. SALTS lost her life in a burning barn Monday afternoon. Mr. SALTS lives on the Sharpe farm, owned by James A. Beck, about six miles northwest of the city. Two of the children were playing in the building when the flames broke out. One of them escaped unhurt, but is unable at this time to tell how the accident occurred. It is presumed, however, that the children started the fire, and that it made such rapid headway that one of them was unable to get out. All the contents of the barn, hay, feed, harness, machinery, etc., were consumed, and the money loss will be a heavy one for a man in Mr. SALTS' circumstances. Mr. Beck is absent from the city at this time and it is not known that he had any insurance on the building.
