Wood and Frame Banks Ai-restecl for Hotline Ip-ire asacl -aurulng: tlie Earns ot Wm. Crawford, On the night of October 30th, two large barns on the farm of William Crawford, near Dover, in tho north part of Grant township, wero consumed by the flames, entailing a loss of about $1,200 or 51,300. Tho Are occurred between 10 and 11 o'clock in the evening, ancl whon discovered both buildings wero entirely enveloped. The origin of the Are was a mystery, as thoro was no means known from which it could be communicated. Mr, Crawford's residence was some 12 or 18 rods distant, which was tho nearest place of a stove or fire, and he says there was no ono out there, to his knowledge, from about 8 o'clock whon ho went to the barnyard to feed the hogs. Tho following day (Saturday) a good many of tho peoplo from that neighborhood were in this city, and of a natural consequence had moro or less to say regarding tho fire. Among tho number were Henry McNeil and Frank Banks. "Whilo coming up west -1th streot the former spoko of the matter and Banks replied, "Yes, and he will looso a d n sight more if he don't keep his mouth out of my business.' They went into Dawson's saloon where they met two or threo moro from tho vicinity of Dover, whom Banks called up ancl treated, and further conversation was had concerning tho matter, and Banks said, "Yes, I set it, and he's liable to loose a d n sight more," as testimony goes to show. The men hushed him up and told him such remarks wero liable to get him into trouble, but ho porsisted he "didn't care; ho could prove himsolf clear of it." Further testimony in tho caso by Mr. Fields, who resides some GO or 80 rods from tho burned barns, is to tho effect that ho was awakened by the blowing of the whistle on Mr. Crawford's shingle mill; that ho got up and dressed and hastened over, and that just as ho was raising the brow of a littlo hill he saw two men running rapidly from the barns toward a patch, of woods in the A Vernon Townsliip Farmer iez. Ii:ull.v Hurt by Fnllluff Under tlie Wlieela ol Mis Wajcon Loaded witii 'Wood. J. I. Kirkpatrick, a Vernon township farmer, who lives on the state roacLtwo and one-half miles south of Claro, met with an accident about 4:30 o'clock Tuesday afternoon that camencar costing his life. Ho went into tho woods with his team after a load of wootL After loading up his wagon ho got oxt to ride and drove out into one of the* cleared fields, where the wheels struck somo obstruction, the front tier of woocl on which he was sitting giving way ancS throwing him forward onto the ground, Tho wagon wheol passed over his body„ striking him just abovo tho left hip and below the short ribs. Tho wheel had a 3} s inch tire. Had it been a narrow tire he probably would havo been suddenly killed or received fatal injuries- Ho got upon tho wagon to rido to the house, but tho jolt caused him toomucb pain, and he was obliged to got off and walk. He reached the house with mucls difficulty, and was helped onto the lounge and medical aid summoned. Drs, Toocl and Maynard soon arrived and did all for tho injured man known to the medical profession. It is not. thought that any internal ruptures were caused, but he has suffered untolct agony from the time of tho accidont-, being unable to turn over or occupy- only ono position in bed. His condition is somewhat improved, and it is thought there are chances for his recovery. THEY SAY! That the girls expect to be "in it" in. '92 — leap year, you know. That there wero 112,000 cigars made in this state during the past montbj , and that tho K. of P." is equal to any of the brands. That ono of our pastors lived on sixty cents one week, and the- next week had 8G. It is needless to say that he did live high.

Ho and Banks wero arrested Monday by Sheriffs Doty and Parrish and taken to Harrison. Tho examination was commenced on Wednesday beforo Justice Mc- Intyre in this city, ouly three witnesses being partially examined. Prosecuting Attorney Burritt asking for anadjourn- ment of two weeks in order to procure a witness who is now absent elsewhere whose evidence is material in the case. Mr. Burritt thinks ho has a good case against the two young men and feels quite confident of convicting them. John Giberson is attorney for the defendants and is making a hard fight for his clients. Human Brutes. James Bell and a man giving his name as George Thompson became engaged in an altercation yesterday forenoon in Trainer's saloon and camo together. Thompson took a chunk out of Bell's little finger and also chewed him on the cheek beforo they were seperated. Bell wandered down on -1th street into John D wyer's saloon where Thompson followed him. They had further words and again got to fighting. Bell asked if "biting goes" and during the melee succeeded in getting Thompson's left ear between his teeth and severing fully one-third off tho upper part thereof. Both were pretty well loaded with poor whiskey, which accounts for the fight. Bell is reported as a quiet sort of a fellow who has worked in divers .lumber camps in this vicinity for the past ten or twelve years. Thompson is a big burley fellow, about 35 'years of age, a stranger in these parts. He had his ear dressed, and last evening was still wandering about the city in a half- stupefied condition. Bell left for parts unknown immediately after the fight. No arrests have yet been made. There is the social call, "the preachers call, the "call" in draw poker, the Close call, the call to breakfast, the call a fellow gets before trying to fill a long:, felt want, and the call the priest reads three weeks beforo tho ceremony. Doctors are sometimes called out of the* opera house, but it breaks a young fellow all up to be "called" off tho porch by the old gent in the way a certain youhgman was tho other evening while visiting his best girl at a rather late- hour.

Pleasant young people, were married at Alma last week. Services will be held at St. Henry's church, in Vernon, as formerly, viz: the second Sunday of each month. Hon. E. D. Wheaton gave an interesting "talk" to tho students of the Mt- Pleasant Business College Wednesday evening. Tho firm of Burritt & Canfield, attorneys at Harrison, has dissolved. The- latter will open an office over L. Savier? & Co.'s bank. Warren Miller had his examination ' at Harrison last week on chargo of rape- and was held for trial at the next term of circuit court.

Pleasant paper acknowledges that the only happening of real inter- -■■ est in that city last week was. a. cock.- fight between a thoroughbred gamer and a common barnyard fowl, the former being badly worsted. J. Knox Gavin, who is well-known ice this city and traveling with the Jas. ET..
