unknown cause, and bad got a good
start before being noticed. The
Staff wits working in the front
portion of tho store in preparation
for u clearing sale, and twenty
minutes before llie lire one of the
men secured a hammer from the
work shop. Shortly after the tirst
alarm the walls and roof of the
building were a mass of Barnes,
which fortunately were quickly
checked by tlle work of the firemen
who had two streams of water playing on the tire iu short order. Besides the wnrk -hop. containing
tools, supplies and a new 1600

large stock of goods on shelving,
all of which was badly damaged bv

nntl is a very practical and much
needed service, hut. sometimes uver
zealous efforts in the work of checking the lire, hampers the work uf

sure to result the Instructions of
officers are often misunderstood, if
even heard hy the firemen, and in-
lelligent and effective handling of
