lauch stronger than the rest, and when ha

When some of the rescuing ptrty re

long, newly-painted frame structure, and
within fifteen minutes the whole build

south wind carrying the fire thn-ush the
building to the two-story stone office, front

promptly on hand, but the headway gamed

and at half past elrht o'clock tho whole
frame work fell, sending up a vast shower

from the bluffs, was of themosttBagniSeent
description. The flames rolled upward In'
billowy waves, while lurid flashes darted
from doors and windows. Thousands of
people witnessed the scene ot grandeur and
destruction. The firemen confined the loss

fire is unknown. Incendiarism is suspected
by some, but the most proabable theory is
that a tug sat fire early In the evening to a
pile of shavings, from which the flames
spread until Wood's, Perry &. Co.'s ex
tensive lumber yard was ablate. The
fire continues to extend, defying all
efforts of the firemen. The lumber

At seven and a half the fire was confined

in the midstof this the flames were savagely

gained on the firemen. Sparks being car

had begun to rise, would set fire to a small
spot in the center ot a pile of lumber, and
because of its height and the fierceness of
the flames nothing could be done until the

It was Impossible to get a stream to play on

started was built up of green lumber from

heat was so intense that the element con
