pad and collar factory was destroyed
by 'Are Wednesday night. The fire
started in the store room where there
was a large stock of collars and pIads,
and it is not kInom*wn how it originated.
Owing to (le very nflammable stuff
of which these pads are made -the fire
wias Inlider good hcadway before the
lire comipny) got there, and the fac
tory lbeing located at quite a distance
from. the hydrants made it, some lit
tle time before connections <oiuld be
made. The firemen worked valiantly
when they (id overcome the difficul
ties, and in a short time had the fire
under control, but not before about
$10,000 damage was d(one. The par't
of the factory not burned was badly
damaged. This factory belongs to
'i'liomas Q. Anderson, and has been
burned twice before. This time the
factory was covered with metal shin
gI'-s which confined the lire in the in
terior, eating into the huge piles of
collars andl pads. There was some !in
siur'alice, slut not enough -to cover the
damages. Is stated.
