James B. Kaler, who lost the residence on his farm in Washington township early Friday morning by fire, has decided to re-build at once. He arrived home Friday evening and immediately commenced drawing plans for the new house. He has considerable timber on his farm, and there is a saw mill near, so that he will have considerable of the lumber sawed from his own timber. The work will be started at once.
