A fire occurred at Bedford, Ind., on Saturday morning, 15th inst., which destroyed a large, two-story brick building in which was located the White River Standard Printing Office. During the excitement occasioned by the fire, a prisoner confined in the county jail on [a] charge of theft deliberately hung himself with a couple of silk handkerchiefs.
