Cairo has suffered another disastrous
fire, and another of our citizens, after
years of toll and sweat, has been com
pelled to stand by aud witness tho de
struction in a single hour ot the accum
ulations of a lite time. Between 3 and 4
o'clock yesterday morning lire was dis
covered breaking through the root of the
Vulcan iron works, Commercial avenue
between Eighth and Tenth streets, and
before the alarm was sounded aud the
engines reached the ground and got to
work, the fire had gained such headway
as to render the lire department power
less to check it, and in less than an
hour the entire building was clo
ut roved. The building Itself was of com
paratively little value, but the damage to
the machinery in the building and the
stock on band is great and the loss will
in all probability not fall short ol $12,000.
The Vulcan Iron orks was owned by
Mr. John T. Itonnie, and the loss which
he sustains by the lire falls heavily upon
him, as he had no Insurance. However,
he Is not disheartened, as be Informs
that no win start up again as soon as the
necessary buildings and machinery cun
be put up. The people ol Cairo gooerul
ly sympathize with Mr. Kunnlin the
loss of his property.

How much truth there may be In this
