The fire department on arriving
the store was soon able to control

the building.
Examination showed that banana
crates, fibre cartons filled with
shredded paper packing and other
inflammable material had been
placed around the oil barrel which
was sitting under the northwest cor
ner window, and the whole mass
set afire. The oil barrel had been
emptied and heat caused it to form
gas which exploded causing the re
port heard by Mrs. Chappel. The
roof and floor of the tram was
badly charred and burned, and the
window by the oil barrel was
broken from the heat, and its wood
en frame work burned. Water used
in controlling the flames also dam
aged flour in the basement of the
store. Fortunately the culprit had
not succeeded in breaking into the
Following the fire, Dexter Shaur
ette and George Baker remained at
the building to guard against a pos
sible second attempt to burn it.
About 40 minutes after the flurry
had quieted down, they were drink
ing coffee in the front of the store,
when glancing across the street,
they noted smoke pouring from the
windows of The Fashion Cleaners.
The alarm was given at once, and
the fire department succeeded in
quickly handling the flames. Here
too, it was found that someone had
lowered an upper window in the
northwest corner of the building,
entered the building, and after rif
ling the cash register, which for
tunately contained only the petty
•cash, had set a fire and left it burn
ing. A large amount of clothing
was in the shop for cleaning and
all of it was destroyed by the flames
and smoke, which also did .heavy
damage to • electrical equipment' in
addition to the walls, ceiling, fix
tures and other equipment. J. A.
Thompson, owner of the establish
ment, states that it will be impos
sible to give an accurate estimate of
the damage sustained until ex
amination is made by the insurance
company's adjuster, whom he ex
pects to be here this evening.
Thompson also states that just
soon as it is possible to do so,
will reopen for business, though just
how soon that will be cannot
determined until a complete check
of the damage is completed.
The reason why the two fires
were set can only be a matter
conjecture at this time, though be
lief appears to be that "fire bugs"
may be loose in the community. No
other understandable reason can be
advanced for attempts to malicious
ly and wantonly burn valuable
property. There will doubtless be
extra measures taken to guard
property throughout the town, and
the present would be rather an un
safe time for prowlers to be around
back alleys or other suspicious
places, either in business or resi
dential sections for citizens are
rather nervous over the fires and a
prowler could easily receive in
Incidently, Tuesday night a win-)
dow was pried open at the New
Central School Building. Another
incident is also of interest in con-,
nection with the evening and night.
County Surveyor Ira Miller while
going to the post office Tuesday
evening between 7:30 and 8:00 o'
clock noted a person, whom he
for granted was Thompson, leaning
over tho cash register. He could
not see the party plainly for there:
was no light in the front of the shop,
though a dim light was in the rear
of the building. None of the shop's
force were in the shop after 6:00
p. m.
Will Pack Libby
Ski Hill, Friday
The ski hill needs packing down!,
It is hoped that the elements will
be favorable Friday night so that
everyone who possibly can will ar
rive at the hill prepared to help
in the project. If Mother Nature,
is tipping the water bucket on us
during that evening the work will
be planned for Sunday provided the 1
same conditions do not exist
Although there is much moisture
on the streets in town, the ski hill,
situated on the north slope, is more
protected and retains snow for some
time usually after it has melted in
town. However, with the heavy
rainfall and thaw the snow is too 1
wet and loose for safe skiing. The
small group that skiied last Sunday
packed down a strip up the hill and
it was good to use. The packing
should also tend to decrease the |
specd of melting of the snow.
If a large group cooperates, it
won't take long to do the work and
the rest of the evening can be spent
in enjoyment of this favorite win
ter sport. |
