FIRE BlllCJAnrc DORS fiOOD WORK  The large warehouse connected with the general merchandise  store of G. H. Gilpin, Cranbrook  was totally destroyed by fire  Thursday morning.  , The cause of the fire , is. unknown,* but'is supposed to have  been the'work" of ah incendiary.  The fire,originated in the back  end of a warehouse which is connected with the main store bv a  bridge, in which a' large amount  of furniture, hardware etc. were  stored, together with large  quantities of case goods stored  in Ihe basement, all of which is  it. total loss.  A large portion of  ihe goods in the main store were  part of the value of the property] removed to the street for safely  saved,   the  amount awarded bo-  during the progress of the'fire.

Under  the '-Blue Cross" plan a , certain,  number  of  especially   designed  boats are lo patrol the seas over  fixed and known routes,   following  the  main  ocean   highways.  Should a .vessel   be in distress,  the  captain,   by   looking  at his  schedule, could tell exactly when  a  patrol  boat would   be due at.  tho nearest, point,   and   plan  accordingly with some eye to business, despatch, and the  comfort  of those on board.     The rate of  salvage would be fixed,  and   the  officer would know exactly what,  the  rescue  would cost the own-'  ers.   The projector believes that,  if seamen knew that on   a given  boat one of the  lifeboats  would  be within sight of a certain fixed  latitude    and    longitude,    many  crippled  ships and   their crews  would   be saved  and accounted  for,   who,   as   things'   are   now,  have   lo   abandon   their   ships.  The  means   of    providing    this  patrol service should be furnished by the nations served, in pro-  portion'  to  the   tonnage of their  shipping.    All .salvage would go  to  government, account  and  bo  credited to their service.  ,  Il is estimated that the loss by  fire, water and removal will  amount to ��10,000. covered by a  blanket insurance on store,  warehouse     and     contents    of  ��ir.,ooo.  The Cranbroolc Fire Brigade  done excellent work in confining  the fire to the warehouse. in  which it was started, several adjoining buildings"1 were scortched  but the efforts of the Firemen  prevented any serious loss.
