Farm House Burned
The home on the old J. W. Hole farm in Eagle Creek township, now owned by August Miller was burned Sunday. The origin of the fire is unknown. The neighbors responded to the call for help, but the fire had such a start when they got there that it was impossible to save the house and it was a total loss. Albin Stolberg, living on the farm had most of his household goods destroyed. The loss of both on the house and the contents is partially covered by insurance.
