THIRD FIRE THIS YEAR
.Tlaaon's Hvery Barn and Uri-i-lum"-.
11.Mi- Burned Saturday.
Last Saturday about two o'clock fire
broke out in the rear of C. H. Mason's
livery barn in a house that Mr. Mason
used as a dwelling. The house was
connected with the barn by a wood I
shed, all of which was destroyed togeth
er with a small dwelling recently built
by G. S. Merriam. Fortunately there
was no wind. Had there been the least
wind, there is no doubt that the largest
part of the town would have been de
By the heroic work of citizens the
house belonging to G. S. Merriam, oc
cupied by J. T. McAneny, was prevent
ed from taking fire. Had this house
caught fire two others belonging to Mr.
Merriam, one of which is his residence,
would have burned, together with the
building in which the Echo is located.
No effort could have saved them. Burn
ing embers set fire to a house belong
ing to Mrs. Hives twice, but the tire
was put out before it had made any
The writer was the tLird man at the
fire and was preceeded but a few sec
onds by Dr. W. M. McCoy. The name
of the first man we do not know. For
at ast three or four minutes after we
i arrived the tire had not yet made its
way through the roof. Having caught
between the ceiling and roof from a
stove pipe. half dozen buckets of
water would easily have put the fire
out, but it was five or ten minutes be
fore any water could be had. The tank
from which the town is supplied
through a three-quarter inch pipe, was
I about empty. There were a half doz
en water hydrants near the scene of
the fire but none of them would run.
It is a well known fact that the water
system of this town consists of a small
tank elevated about twenty feet above
»he surface of the ground from which
the water is conveyed to the houses in
a three-quarter inch pipe. There is no
water main. The first twenty or thirty
feet from the tank there is a two inch
pipe, but all the balance of the water
pipe Is three-quarter inch. If one con
sumer is drawing a drink all the bal
ance have co wait until he gets through,
then each one must take his turn. If
two open their hydrants at the same
time the water trickles out in a feeble
stream about half a3 large as a lead
pencil. Trying to fight the fire with
this kind of a supply is, of course, use
less, and, as heretofore, the people just
stood around and let the fire burn. The
water that was used to prevent the
house in which Mr. McAneny lived,
from taking fire, was carried from the
C. H. Mason"3 loss on barn and con
tents was approximately one thousand
dollars with MOO insurance. G. S. Mer

house in which Mr. McAneny lived was

THE ST. LOUIS FAIR
An Intere»tlns Letter From a Loavon
The following from our fellow towns
man was received too late for publica
tion last week. As giving impressions
of a Wasbingtonian of the St. Louis
Fair it will bo read with interest. The
suggestion made about the best tin. to
visit the fair may well be worth heed
ing. The letter was dated at Eureka.
Kans., Mr. Adams' old home:
I agreed to write a letter for the Echo
regarding the World's Fair and ho it
looked to a Leaven mat. I visit
ed the fair for one week and have re
turned to Eureka to spend a month vis-
We had a pleasant trip to the fair
and back this far. without accident or
delay. The weather was very nice
while we were at the fair and the sights
are certainly grand. The effect of the
magnificent buildings, well kept
grounds, and sparkling cascades is cer
tainly beyond description with the pen.
The only drawback la that thirty per
cent, or more, of exhibits, are not in
place yet, and many of the foreign
buildings aw not open. In fact some of
the stato building* are not complete.
For these reasons I would advise Wash
ington people who contemplate visiting
the fair not to come nrui! late fill.- for I
it will he a month before the fair in
complete, and by that time the nights
will be so hot that people from the
Evergreen state could not enjoy them
selves. lam proud to say that the j
Washington state building is the favor- ;
ite, especially with the foreign people. !
It is the only state building that is what
one would expect, as in itself indicating
the leading industry—lumbering. Wash- '
ington material was used mostly in
its construction, and in such a way as
to attract the attention of the beholder
to the variety and size of the timber.
Huge sticks, ami broad planks are used,
such only as can be gotten in this state.
In this way the building is made an
exhibit in itself. Many of the state
buildings are larger and costlier, bat
none are more appropriately built with
a view to making the best use of the i
money expended in the building. Near
ly ail the state buildings, in fact ninety
per cent of them, are built of a kind of
plaster that is called staft. lirst largely j
used in the Chicago exposition. Though
they are different in design there is
enough similarity in all of them to soon i
make them tiresome to the eye.
I would say for the benefit of the
Clinton. lowa, people that lowa hat one
of the finest furnished buildings. It
contain! the largest ami best pipe or
gan to be seen on the grounds. I no
ticed that the decorating of the build
ing, which by the way was very beaut i
ful, was done by William Andrews from
Washington will certainly win the
prize on her display of forest, fish and
game, also c-n cold storage fruit. The
fruit from most of the state 3 lying be
side of ours puts you in miml of the old
adage about small potatoes in Ireland.
Our mining exhibit is very good but
could be greatly improved by Leaven
worth people and I wish to urge them
to secure 50 to 73 pounds of specimens
of the Blewett ore and ship by express,
collect, to Elmer E. Johnson, commis- i
sioner. Col. Mclntyre can be prevailed I
upon to send some of his best sample*

Mr. Fred L. Brender who has for
several years conducted a successful
dairy business in the Cbunistiek valley
near Leavenworth, told us hist Satur
day that be hail named his place the
Nino Deer Creamery. The name is
taken from a mountain near his place.
Years ago when the first white settlers
came to this country there roamed
around this, mountain, a herd of deer,
consisting of nine head, which were
chased for years.and often shot at.but it
seems without effect. Tho herd seemed
to bear a charmed existence. •No one
was ever able to bit one of them. They
could be seen almost any time, and al
ways on this particular mountain. Fi
nally, some five years ago they disap
peared, and have not been seen since.
