The next structure to. succumb" was
tile large Tult block. From there .the ,
conflagration went whirling through G
the solid blocks of four-story brick p
buildings, including the post office, be- tii
tween Stevens and Washington streets. ht
At this point tboe fire burned out from m
lack of material. ca
'From the place of o igin the fire had H
m.anwbile. taken another direction, a

The Frankfort cost $25)0;000. It
withstood the fire for sometime but it
finally diseappeared: The Arlington re
Hotel was now envelfped in flames. hi
Suddenly a man was seen to Jump
from the second story. He arose had hý
6tarted to run down Howard. street, bh
but wee overcome by the beat and fell.
Several people rushed to his assistance di
and carried him to a place of, safety. m
He was a pitiable sight, having been
literally roasted alive, the skin peeling rE
off all over his body. The unfortunate
man's name was Charles Davis. He n
died at noon to-day.
Northward was the direction taken
by the fire from the Arlington. It
consumed the block between Howard, a
Halo, Front and Stevens streets, burn. a
ing east as far as the latter thorough- r
fare, where a vacant lot checked furth
er progress in that direction. Every
thing in a northerly direction, includ
ing the Northern Pacific Express office, D
the IUolon block and the Windsor
Hotel, was soon in a mass of flames.
The river prevented the,fire from
doing further damage, and was the
means of saving all the big flouring r

SThree hours sufficed to complete the Ii

saved. Provisions are scarce and will
last only a short time. The city coun- n

that provisions should be sent for and
the needy supplied free.
Thesuperlotendent of the city water

for neglecting his duty, he being away
