DCLITII, Minn., Sept. II.-While
the forest (Ires aro still burning along

have passed the danger jmlnt so far as

is concerned. Hundreds of thousands
of dollars' worth of good timber has
been destroyed, however.
Grand Marias, Chicago Hay, Hovo

smaller settlements along the shore
are thought to lie safe. On the Mssa
ha range the flumes are no longer con
sidered daneeroiis. A nard rain would
put an end to the flames. Hefngces
who were picked up at different points

Manas, have returned to their homes.
Tlio homes and all the possessions of
settlers back of Grand Marias wore
destroyed by fire Friday.
