    Barn fires

    Barns on the farms of Mrs. J. L. Sherwood and William Parker at Alton burned.

    The contents of both barns were destroyed. The Sherwood barn had tobacco and farm machinery in it and the Parker barn was filled with hay, tobacco, lumber, a tractor and disc harrow that were lost.

    Two workmen were shredding fodder at the Parker farm when the fire broke out and quickly spread over the barn.

    Bobby Flay and Wolfgang Puck anyone?
