Perkins owned and wa living vhere the Presbyterian parsonage now stands, his niece, Miss Mattie Per; kins, lost a gold ring which could not ba found, even by the most vigorous searching. A few years ago Rev. E. P. Goodrich, while occupying the parsonage, found a ring, but at the time the loss of Miss Perkins was not remembered. Kecently when her brother George Perkins, of Ohio, was visiting here, the circumstance was recalled and a discussion followed, which resulted in sending Mr. Goodrich the lady's address and in his forwarding the ring to her for inspection. She recognized it, and will probably try to make up for twenty years of lost time by wearing it continually. Wednesday evening, as the family of A. J. Gale, of Superior, were retiring, they discovered their barn was burning, fire coming from the upper part over the hay loff. By the time the live stock had been rescued the fire had progressed so far that nothing else could be saved. With the barn were burned 40 toni of hay, 16 acres of wheat, and all the farm marchinery, wagons, etc, contained in it, involving a losa of about $1,500. The insurance was: Personal, $1,500 (which includes the live stock saved); on barn, $400. After the fire, buggy tracks approaching the barn from the road, and the fact that neighbors saw two men driving rapidly north from the scène, caused a suspicion that they had done the deed. Saturday mornin? further sensation was caused by the discovery of human remains in the ruins, and the excited minds of the neighbors vary between the suspicion that murder has been conifiSitted or that a tramp accidentally fired his stolen couch. Mr. Gale lives on an east and west road, and the men spoken of drove east about 80 rods to a road running north, followed that a mile and half, then returned half a mile and drove west toward Frain's Lake on a road running parallel to that on whioh the barn was burning. As the house is back from, and the barn was near, the road, nothing is improbable in either theory, although the early hour, 8 o'clock,ivould bear against the first. About 20 minutes before Gale's son had shut and locked the barn, but when he went to put out the fire he found the doors open. No one known of is missing. Free Press.
