On Sunday night, between twilve j '

bakery was discovered to be on fire. j1
T'ae bakery was a double frame house 1
jnst back of Mr. White's dwelling-, and
was very near several frame buildings,
and there was grea- dujger of the fire
spreading. The tire companies responded
verv promptly to the alarm {
and splendid work. The fire was ex- J
tinguished before the flames could s
snread arid onlv one-half of'he hou3e t
was barned. No one was in the bakery | j
at the time, but it is supposed that the j
fire originated from the explosion of
a keroseue stoye which bad been
lighted at eight o'clock. Abon: thirteen
barrels of flour were lost. Those
Jiving- near the fire were packed and t
ready to move our, as it was not \
thought possible to prevent the fire I
from sprc dirg. The firemen deserve i
great cred t tor iheir epiendid work. I
