INSANE PATIENTS BURNED.

Warm Springs, Mont., Sept. 30. -- One of the buildings of the insane asylum was destroyed by fire this morning at 2 o'clock. Three of the inmates perished in the flames.
Their names were A. B. MAZE, HIRAM BEICHER and HECTOR McLEAN.
Every effort was made to save them, but without avail. It is not known how the fire originated, there having been no fire in the building since June. The coroner will hold an inquest upon the remains of the inmates.
