Fire at reston. .
Preston was visited by a most
disastrous. blaze on Wednesday
night and the resulting damage
amounted to about ten thousand
dollars the loss being but half
covered by insurance.
The fire was discovered about
' in - in
seven o'clock the eveningin
Shraders harness shop. , The
blaze had been caused by a defective -
fective flue and when first discovered -
covered the ceiling was ablaze.
Practically the entire town
turned out to fight the fire but
efforts were useless owing to the
lack of fire fighting facilities.
Part of the stock in the harness
shop was removed but a large
part' was entirely consumed. The
building was owned by Chris
Shelly. Mr. Shelly's dwelling
on the lots in the rear of thc harness -
ness shop was the next to go.
Most of the household effects
were saved but the efforts of thc
firefigh + ers did not avail to save
this building or to prevent thc
fire from spreading to the new
hotel. Thc structure was one of
the largest in the town and was
owned by : Mrs. Belle Pyle and occupied -
cupied by P. R. Ifunzeker. The
guests had plenty of time to es-
cape with their personal effects ,
and most of the furniture was
taken out before the building was
destroyed. Most heroic efforts
were made to save the property
but nothing much could be done
until the fire reached the bank

IariF. Dae.schncr Dead ,
Aged and Esteemed Resident ofPreston iJ'
Summoned to His 'Reward.
" ,
Death has again entered thc
circle of Richardson county pio-
necrs and another venerable citi-
zen of this community has bccn
called tu his reward.
Karl Frederick Daeschner died
at his home in Preston at three
o'clock last Friday morning His
death removes one who was in
many ways a remarkable man.
His was that rugged type of man-
hood that stamps its impress upon
environment and thc influence of
which is always felt wherever
thc individual RO possessed lives
for a considerable number of
years. DIr. Daeschner had made
this county his home for so long ,
had been so vitally interested in
its progress and so intimately acquainted -
uainted with large cumbers of
its people as to exert this influence -
"f1uence to the fullest degrec. He
lived to reach thc age of 83 years
11 1110nths ant 12 days and he
had lived all these years in the
truest sense of the word. 'J"hc
years had been years of industry ,
of unceasing activity , of exercise
of bodily and mental vigor and
the encl came as to one who has
laid aside the task only when it
was completed and who could
face the sunset with -thc consci-
ousness that hc had wrought well
and in sublime faith of a day-
break and a new life where the
slopes of eternity arc never dark-
ened by the shadows of a setting
sun. Mr. Daeschnerwas a Chris-
tian man and his was the faith
that inspires faith in others. It
was the basis of his manhood ; it
made him the good citizen that
he was , and the man among men.
lie was burn in Baden , Ger-
many and there grew to young
manhood. In 1845 , in his native
country , he was married to lvIiss
Susana Deuchlcr and a short time
later they came to this country.
To . . them eighteen children , six
daughters and twelve sons were
born and of these children four-
teen arc yet livin'g. IIis life and
an the varied events thereof arc
known to many of our people and
it is with heartfelt sincerity that
building' , which is brick and which
served to stay the progress of the
flames. The blow will be a hard
one for the town although there
is little doubt but that the burned
structures will be rebuilt. - - .

this sad occasion with their trib- /
utes of sympathy. The husband
I
and father who has been taken
from them was a good man and
his memory must be unto them as '
a blessed hcritage.
Eight years ago the living descendents -
ccndents of 1\11' and Mrs. Karl
Frederick Dacschncr met and organized -
g'anizcd what is known as the
Dacschncr Ancestral league. The 1
object was to hold annual family
reunions , and this plan was car-
ried out.tl hc last meeting was
held in the summcrof 1903 at the
Zoeller home near Preston and
was a most enjoyable ] mceting.
The death of 1\'lr. Daeschncr removes -
moves the head of the organiza-
tion. There is a break in the
circle that can never be filled ,
but although the vacant .dlair
may be draped in mourning ,
around the hearts of those who
place the solemn emblem there
shall be twined the ever green
vines of thc memory of the de-
partcd.
At the funeral services 'which
were held at the Evangelical
church in Preston , a vast con-
course of friends asscmbled. The
services were conducted by the
pastor , Rev. C. Linge , assisted

ton , Kas. , and Hev. J. Schmid1i

er , lvIo. , Miss FrcdrikalYIrs. Wm.
