"A miss is as good as a mile" is the old adage, but we would rather that little barn that burned last Friday just north of Mr. Hanson's harness shop had been a mile away. Had the wind been a little north of east instead of a little south of east, in all probability there would have been but little of Lyle standing today. As it was, the barn containing some hay, and August Webber's buggy were consumed. The display of our fire department at the fire was, to say the least, amusing.
