Barnard Bee -- Barnard, KS -- Thursday, Jan. 29, 1931
Barn Destroyed By Fire
--The barn on the Fred CROWL place southeast of Barnard was completely destroyed by fire about dark last Friday evening. Nothing is known concerning the origin of the fire according to reports reaching this office.
T. CROWL, a brother of Fred CROWL, has been taking care of Fred's cattle since Fred moved to Hollins, [Cloud County] Kansas, several months ago. The last known person to be at the place was T's hired man, who attended to the stock there that day. When he left the place late in the afternoon, there was no sign of fire or anyone loitering in the vicinity. The barn was a large frame structure. It was not an old building and the insurance will not cover the loss. Besides the barn, several bushels of cane seed belonging to T. CROWL, and considerable other grain and feed were a complete loss.

This is the second fire at the CROWL farm in the past few weeks, ad the house on the place was also mysteriously destroyed by fire the latter part of November.

--Henry WOODY shipped a load of cattle to the Kansas City market via the Santa Fe Tuesday morning
