Fire Occurs In Gambler On
When Hubbard Hall Is De
stroyed By Flames
Valuable Oil Paintings And
As Well As A Large Number
Hie Stack Room Saved From
Gambler, O., Jnn 3. A most dis
astrous flro occurred hero Saturday
morning nt 7 o'clock when Hubbard
hall, tho college library, was com
plctely destroyed by flro and most
valuable reference books, works of
art, records and relics of tho college
Hero lost In the conflagration and
cannot bo replaced. '
Tho Stack Room, tho now audition
to the cast of Hubbard Hall was not
damaged and this was duo to the
fact that thero Is a' large steel doer
between the hall and Stack room and
fortunately this was closed at the
tlmo of tbe flro.
The origin oi tho lire appears to
bo a mystery. It Is thought by some
that 1t originated In the heating
plant in the basement and quickly
swept the reading room on tuo llrst
floor and the museum on tho second
floor of the two story building. ""An
other theory Is that the flro started
from spontaneous combustion, 'mere
had been considerable cleaning on in
tho building for several days such
as oiling the floors. Tho gas pres
sure came on very strong Saturday
morning and It is possible that some
of the Inflammable material was Ig
nited by spontaneous combustion.
At such an early hour In tho morn
ing the fire' had gained considerable
headway when discovered and In a
fow momonts tho interior of the li
brary was In a mass In flames Resi
dents of tho village and the fow col
lege students remaining on the hill,
ns most were homo on the holiday
vacation, turned out and made an
effort to save tho building from be
ing destroyed and in saving some ot
tho valuable books and paintings
on the Interior. Their efforts to save
tho building and tho contents were
fruitless, Bo.all gave their attention
to saving the Stack room. However,
tho automatic flre proof doors proved
effective In saving the Stack room
In which Is housed the collego li
brary, worth $50,000.
In the main building which was
destroyed there wore hung tho por
traits of Andrew Carneslo, Bishop
Bedell, Edward M. Stanton and
other notable persons and it is im
possible to replace this loss. On the
second floor of tho Hubbard Hall was
located tho relics of tho collego and
all were destroyed and cannot bo
Hubbard Hall was built in tho
year 1885 at a cost of $12,000. Tho
Insurance on tho building and a por
tion of its contonts is $9,000, and
tho Iofs over 'Insurance Is estimated
Tho loss of his job is apt to punc
