The Country Devatated.
Sr. Igxack, MicU., July 13. From here
to Marqnette, S13 miles, there is almost
an unbroken line of fire, which is wiping
out everything from the small brush and
solitary atettlers' cabin to the big woods
and hamlets. No rain has fallen in three
months and the country is in about the
same condition as in 1873, when the fires
devastated everything. No loss of lite
has been reported.

A Furnace of Biasing Wood.
Sault Ste. Marie, Mich., July 13.
Early last week a small brush fire broke
out in Detour, on the shore of Lake Hu-
ron, and has since spread unchecked until
the whole western part of the country
from Lake Huron to Lake Superior is a
furnace of blazing wood. The village of
Detour has been totally destroyed, as has
also the small hamlet of Prentiss .SJaT.
Meagerreports from Gatesville', Iroquois,
Donaldson and Stevensburg indicate that
these towns have been destroyed by the
fire to the last building.
The Town of Bay M11U Doomed.
A late telearam from Bay Mills, on the
Lake Superior shore, says that nothing
cm save that place and the two largest
mills in the state, those of the Hall &
Munson Co. The people have placed all
their moveable poods in boats. Owing to
the dense mass of Mining smoke which
hangs over the city and River St. Mary,
navigation is closed.
Rain fell in the region yesterday and it
is hoped that the fires have been subdued.
