its first duty after having been pur
chased by the city council last Sun- i
day at midnight when it aroused the
populace in response to .1 fire alarm
from the building on Maiden Lane
ovned by V. A. Mos». The tire
started on tie outside of ihe build

completed, v :d swept rapid)/ up ih< :
west wall until it had assumed:
alarming proportions. At the first
sound of the fire siren K. W. Carter, I
who had just returned from a hunt
ing trip, manned the fire truck and;
made a fast run to the scene ol the
blaze, with three or four volunteer
firemen aboard. Quick work with
the fire hose soon hail th« flames

burned through the wall and into the
second story of the building.
Some damage was done by water I

the true origin is unknown.
At the time of the fire Mr Moss
was just completing an addition to
the building, including a dance hall
and large banquet room, to be op
