JOSEPH A. TODD, former with Wangler Bros. Co. of this city, is apparently one of the heavy losers in the fire. He and his relatives, it is understood, practically owned the stock of the Todd-Baker drug store, whose loss is given as $60,000. It has not been learned how well protected MR. TODD was with insurance. He went to Sioux City five years ago and has been successful in his business. He is a brother of MRS. M. H. KELLY, wife of the city attorney.
