Personal and Local
The friends of Chas. Collier and family will be sorry to that on Saturday afternoon last, their home and all its contents was destroyed by fire.

A warrant was obtained from Justice John Major and placed in the hands of Sheriff McGoff, who started in pursuit of the gentlemen. The horse was found in the vascinity of Duck Creek where the boys had sold it for thirty five dollars. They took the train on Wednesday for Watertown. Sherriff McGoff started Thursday from Green Bay on their track. Mr. Collier who was at the Florence Iron Mine has been notified and can find his horse safe in Green Bay. We learn that the boy Primley has been in the Industrial School at Waukesha and was released for some cause before he had been there a year. He is about 18
