Two days before the ceremony was to have been performed HOAG disappeared mysteriously, and although a vigorous search, lasting four or five weeks was made for him, no trace of his whereabouts could be obtained. He was given up for lost and his disappearance was set down as a mystery that would never be solved.

A HORRIBLE CALAMITY
A Mother and Six Children Burned to Death in Dakota
Huron, Dak., Dec. 13 — Complete details of Saturday night's calamity, near Washington, have been received. About 1 o'clock in the morning Mrs. HARRIS and her husband were awakened by fire and smoke, and found that the house was on fire below. All of them were in the upper story, which was in one room. The father tried to get down the stairway, but was driven back by the fire. Then he went through a window to the ground below, calling to the others to throw out the children for him to save. The youngest was thrown out by its mother and HARRIS caught it. Haire, Mrs. HARRIS's brother, who was living with them, did not stop to aid his sister, but followed HARRIS to the ground, and so did HARRIS's largest boy. Before the mother could toss out another child the building had fallen, burying her and the six children in a fiery grave. One or two wails from the victims and all was over with them. Before help came all who were saved were seriously injured by the cold, the mercury being 12 degrees below zero. On Sunday morning when the remains were taken from the ruins heads were found burned from the bodies, feet severed from the legs and legs burned from the bodies. It is not known how the fire started.

DANVILLE's BROKEN BANK
Dansville Advertiser, Dec. 8, 1887
We published last week without comment various press notices of the case of Lester B. FAULKNER before the U. S. Grand Jury at Auburn, although there was much to criticize. Among other things, it was represented that loud and boisterous talk had been indulged in by Col. FAULKNER's enemies, and boasts had been made by government officials which induced some people to think he would surely go. Now, all this is slush! Then the talk that the Bank Examiner was largely at fault in the bank failure, is a statement for which even the shadow of proof cannot be educed. We shall next hear, perhaps, that the creditors brought the disaster upon themselves.
IRA D. HARROUN SENTENCED
Remarks by County Judge Morgan Before Inflicting a Fine
Ira D. HARROUN pleaded guilty to the indictment charging him with willfully and maliciously killing a colt belonging to William S. WARNER. In passing judgment upon HARROUN, Judge MORGAN said: "In your case, BARROUN, the court, in view of your previous record, is inclined to be more lenient than it otherwise would be. The offense of which you stand charged is one of a very serious nature. The way you took is not the way to obtain satisfaction for such injuries or annoyance as you claim to have suffered. We can see how you might have resented a continued provocation by some act against the person who was the cause of the injury, but we cannot understand or appreciate how a man could possibly be led to try to obtain revenge by causing an innocent dumb creature to suffer. That is neither the lawful nor the manly way to proceed. Nevertheless, in view of your previous good character, as attested by your fellow citizens, and especially in view of the fact that you bear wounds received in your country's service, the judgment of the court is much lighter than the seriousness of the offense would warrant, and it is that you pay a fine of $100 or stand committed to the Monroe County Penitentiary till paid, not to exceed 100 days.
