.—The little son and daughter of Nik Bishop, farmer, residing near here, found some matches in a pair of overalls hanging in the barn, and entered a wager to see which could build the biggest fire. The boy won. He fled the barn, destroying the building and all its contents, including several gasoline engines, 12 sets of harnesses and more than 1,000 bushels of feed. The loss is partly covered by insurance.
