Waterloo [Iowa] Daily Courier, February 16, 1895:

INVESTIGATING A PHENOMENON. -- For some time there has been a
strange phenomenon observed near Geneva [Iowa], and the
following dispatch tells how a farmer tried to shoot the "fire

"On Tuesday night [February 12] L. H. Spangler, a substantial
farmer in that neighborhood, resolved to solve the mystery
connected with the illuminated apparition. He loaded his shot
gun and drove to the place over which the strange light is wont
to hover.

Arriving on the top of a small hill about half a mile from his
residence Mr. Spangler saw a huge mass of fire in the atmosphere
about twenty rods distant. The immense orb was slowly receding
and Spangler whipped up his team until he was within three rods
of the strange object.

He then leveled his gun, took good aim and fired both barrels
almost simultaneously. There was a loud report and the air was
filled with millions of luminous glittering fragments which
lighted up the country for miles around.

As the farmer sat watching the work which his hands had wrought,
the fragments began to slowly come together and in a short time
had again formed into one large body, which shot straight up
into the air and disappeared behind a large black cloud. A long
vivid streak of light was left across the sky which gradually
faded away.

After seeing the last strange phenomenon Mr. Spangler returned
to his home, and the 'fire ghost mystery' still remains
