Recluse Burns In Own Home

John Olin was burned to death Tuesday night in a fire which destroyed his small house at Glen Ullin.

Olin had a great fear of burglars and constantly kept a veritable arsenal of revolvers, rifles and shotguns loaded in his home. Fire fighters, in attempted [sic] to remove his body, seen lying beside his bed, were routed by the fusilade of discharging guns or cartridges, until the fire was extinguished after practically destroying the house.

One son, a dentist at Elk Point, S.D., is the only known relative.
