to the Amount of 8100,000.
St. Louis, Feb. 25. Shortly after
2 o'clock Wednesday morning fire was
discovered in one of the elevator shafts
of tho Merchants Exchange building
and before the flames were gotten
under control, the top floor of the
building, together with its numerous
offices were destroyed, entailing an
estimated loss of about S100.000. In
response to a general alarm about
20 fire engines crowded the
streets surrounding tho exchange and
in lessthan 20 minutes two score of
streams of water were pouring on the
flames. The fire was fanned by a wind
of considerable force and the firemen
found their work a difficult task. The
flames worked their way to the top of
the building and in less than an hour
the entire eastern roof of the structure
was in ruins. The upper floor of the
building was occupied by the
St. Louis Clearing House association
and a number of commission
firms. These offices were completely
gutted and tho loss will be a total one.
The fire worked downward to tho
fourth and third floors, but the firemen
managed to confine the flames to
the northeast portion of the building.
