At four o'clock Thursday morning the
fire bell was sounded for the first time
for several months. It was soon ascer
tained that the Kirk building, occupied
by Acorn Broi., was in flames, and in
less than two hours tli* entire building
and a stock of general merchandlfl
were destroyed. The loss in merchan
dise and fixtures is estimated :it (11,000,
and was covered by $8(IOU Insurance.
The building was covered by $1200 In
surance. The origin of the Hie Is un
known, although the supposition is that
it resulted from a defective Hue or de
fective wiring. The 13 members of the
lire department did some effective work
in saving the adjacent buildings, par
ticularly Carroll's pharmacy, a wood
building, that was not even scorched.
The two constant streams that played
on the fire for over an hour were under
ISO pounds of pressure, but firemen
state that if the fire had lasted 30 min

have been exhausted.
