          George Mohr, one of Jackson township's successful farmers, was in this city, Saturday on business.  He was accompanied by his daughter, Mrs. Rachel Osborn.  Mr. Mohr lost a barn by lightning this last summer, but he is having a dandy new one built, 92[?]* x 52 feet in size.  A thrifty German farmer cannot keep house without a good barn.  He desires to take good care of his stock and all that he raises.  Waste is a word he does not see any sense in using and neither should other people.
