Fred Neis has commenced work on the rebuilding of his large barn which was completely destroyed by fire less than three weeks ago, when 50 ewes, 35 lambs, two calves, a wagon, a good set of harness, and about 1,000 bushels of oats, and 2,000 feet of native lumber were consumed by the flames. The new barn which Mr. Neis will build to replace the one destroyed by the fire will be 40×70 feet, 10 feet longer than the old one, with the same space for side sheds and driveways. The work on the foundation is nearing completion and the carpenters will commence the frame work as soon as the cement work is completed. When completed this will be as large or larger than any barn in this section of the county.
