Mrs Habenicht's Store Partially Destroyed
lfc by lire
Shortly alter ten o'clock Snnday
night fire wa3 discovered on the roof
. of Mrs F. M. Habenicht's store bnildl"
ins: on East "Washington Street, and
11 almost before the alarm could be
turned in the whole roof was in flames
,' and burning fiercely. To those who
f arrived earliest on the scene, the outlook
appeared decidedly gloomy. The
prospect of^saving any portion of the
burning building ofr its contents was
" not promising,, and Crawford's stables
? and the group of wooden outbuildings
? in the jail ? ?eemed doomed. The
firemen r*- promptly, however,
11 and in a v.shori time the engines
^ bad ihree steady streams playing on
the flames, and scores of williDgwork,r
eis were busy removing the stock of
> goods from Mrs. Habenicht's store to
places of safety, and in. getting the
j? stonk out of the stables next door.

Crawford's stables, and the adjoining
'fi sheds caught fire several times, bat
after the <&gines commenced to work
10 these buildings were never in any
e serious danger. Had the walls of tbe
building where the fire started not
, been of brick, tbe firemen would,
probably,.have had more trouble in
checking its spread, but, everything
13 considered, the department gave dfe
11 pretty and effective an exhibition of
J" fire fighting as has ever been eeen in
this town. Before the firemen got
down to work the whole of the roof
of the store was in flames, but the fire
was prevented from spreading to the
wooden ceiling below, and nothing
a was burned except the i afters and
shingles. Fire could not possibly
l!? have broken out in a worse place, and
1 but for the gallant/ work done, the
result- would havev been disastrous.
No department could have done better

?k j the "bouquets" that have been thrown
id i their way.
