The residence of Joseph Luce, two and one-half miles north of this
village, was destroyed by fire yesterday morning. The fire caught in
the roof, or chamber, and was not discovered until it was beyond
control. Only an organ and a small quantity of bedding were saved.
Mr. Luce has a large family of small children, some of whom are sick,
and he is placed in very sad circumstances. Not only his shelter and
clothing, but his large store of provisions for the winter are destroyed
just when most needed. We understand there was a small insurance on
the property but not enough to go far in restoring the loss. Mr. Luce is
not in circumstances to easily bear this calamity, and the neighbors and
friends will help the family through the winter.

More later if no one objects.
